Alright, I finished a few decks over the last couple hours or so.
Here's a bonus Kor equipment deck I made for fun a while ago but never posted on tappedout: $15 Kor Equipment
I tried to make a decent zombies deck that fit within the budget but it's such a popular tribe that all the semi-good cards are over $1 each, which made it nigh impossible to make something good. If you're fine with pauper decks though, here's a zombie deck I made in that format: Suicide is occasionally the answer. It's like 10 bucks without the sideboard and can hold up pretty well against other non-competitive modern decks (and is really fun in multiplayer with Shepherd of Rot heheh).
If you don't mind using non-pauper legal cards, I suggest you make these edits:
- 4 Maggot Carrier --> 4 Diregraf Ghoul
- 3 Festering Mummy + 1 Carnophage --> 4 Dread Wanderer
- 2 Sangrophage + 2 Wretched Anurid --> 4 Graveyard Marshal
The last two add $8ish to the price tag but with them the deck becomes more competitive and easier to play. That said, managing your life total is pretty fun if you enjoy a challenge, and chaining together Maggot Carriers with Ghoulcaller's Chant to hit the opponent for the last few points of damage is pretty satisfying. Do what you want with it.

The most brutal way to build a Markov deck is to abuse his Eminence ability by playing as many low-cmc Vampires as possible. If you couple that with mana rocks and some Ramp you can drop a handful of 1cmc Vampires each turn and get free triggers for even more Vampires from Markov! This will also allow you to cut your lands down to around 30.
Here are some low-cmc Vampires to consider:
- Bold Impaler
- Duskborne Skymarcher
- Falkenrath Gorger
- Guul Draz Assassin
- Guul Draz Vampire
- Indulgent Aristocrat
- Insolent Neonate
- Pulse Tracker
- Quag Vampires
- Shadow Alley Denizen
- Skymarcher Aspirant
- Stromkirk Noble
- Vampire Cutthroat
- Vampire Lacerator
- Vampire Neonate
- Vicious Conquistador
- Viscera Seer
- Dark Ritual
- Cabal Ritual
- Culling the Weak
- Bubbling Muck
- Rite of Flame
- Desperate Ritual
- Pyretic Ritual
- Seething Song
- Infernal Plunge
You can also try throwing in these HUGE buff effects for your Vampires:

My suggestions for cuts are plentiful. However, Kresh the Bloodbraided comes to mind immediately. Reyhan, Last of the Abzan would be good, Ob Nixilis, the Fallen is great, Rockslide Elemental is similar to Kresh, Taurean Mauler is another Managorger, and Yahenni, Undying Partisan and Malakir Cullblade, with even more similarities to Kresh, may fit well with your flavor. Curse of Stalked Prey could help, alongside Curse of Predation, some mana rocks would do you good, Apocalypse Hydra, and many other hydras would be decent finishers, Kalonian Hydra takes the cake though. Armorcraft Judge is nice, along with Inspiring Call, Pelt Collector and Experiment One, Champion of Lambholt, maybe Heroes' Bane, Ravenous Slime, Rubblebelt Raiders, Deus of Calamity, Scute Mob, Sporeback Troll, Tuskguard Captain, Vinelasher Kudzu, Soul's Majesty, Falkenrath Exterminator, and Stromkirk Noble?
So that's a few suggestions. Want me to propose cuts as well?

@SinBlade Thanks for the feedback!
I mostly just use this deck for casual play with friends, but I might throw together a sideboard in the future.

YamishiTheWickedOne I really like the Zealots, gets you instant card draw and a body; however I do think you're right with Asylum Visitor, I should give her another shot.
I think I want to lean more heavily on the midrange/control aspect, but it's been difficult to find the balance between the two. I feel full aggro might suit vampires better, with playsets of Bloodghast, Vampire Lacerator, Stromkirk Noble, and powerful lords; however, I don't find that as fun to play as building a board state, controling theirs, and then gambling on topdecking something black with Nocturnus. That way, though, can fall apart quickly and is broken down by any removal. But as I said, finding the middle point there has been tricky - for me, at least.

Stromkirk Noble is a really good one drop red vamp as well.
i use Gatherer to find all kinds of cards, i use its advanced search feature, you can set all kinds of filters to search for just what you need/want.
for some reason i cant get it to make the above into a link, but i recommend using that site for finding all kinds of things, it is very useful
