Temple of Malice Discussion

Hate to break it to you, but this deck isn't actually legal in EDH. You have several cards that are outside of your commander's color identity and you have 101 cards listed, so one needs to be removed.
You need to replace Wort, the Raidmother and all of your temples except for Temple of Malice because you can't run cards that have colors that your commander doesn't have and you can't run cards that have color symbols in their rules text that your commander isn't.
Also, I'd suggest Reito Lantern, as it lets you recast creatures in your graveyard for 5 mana.

I'd focus on improving your manabase especially since you have multiple cards with particular mana costs like Dreadbore, Terminate, Necroskitter, Etc. Bloodstained Mire and Blood Crypt are must haves. Some other ones to consider are Smoldering Marsh, Dragonskull Summit, Temple of Malice, and Lavaclaw Reaches. If your wallet is a little deeper, more fetch lands and Badlands is also a potential. I'd also focus on fine-tuning your creature choices. Festering Mummy seems weak to me, as does Butcher Ghoul. You can really swap them out for whatever you want, or just keep them. Overall, though, nice budget list. Just personally, I'd recommend Crater's Claws over Banefire, but I tend to play against people with fewer counterspells, so just do what fits for the playgroup.

My first thought is that I'd drop all the lands that ETB tapped for no benefit. Temple of Malice, Bojuka Bog, Canyon Slough get a pass. Along with cards like Rocky Tar Pit and even Terramorphic Expanse/Evolving Wilds. When you're a mana hungry control deck, you can't afford to take turns off because your lands aren't untapped.
Illusionist's Bracers is totally worth taking a look at. You have several powerful vampires that would only be better with a double use of their abilities. Not to mention your commander. Always worth it.
Patriarch's Bidding might be worth looking at if you're not in a tribal heavy meta.
How about cards like Call the Bloodline and Stensia Masquerade to get some more utility for your vampires. Also, with Call, you can slowly stockpile your yard to get a huge swath of creatures with a mass rez, while defending yourself. Would also benefit to look at Skullclamp if you decide to go that route.
Enchantments will wreck you. Chaos Warp might be worth it to get past pesky ones that are locking you down. Red will give you all the artifact destruction you need, and I love Rakdos Charm for this and other flexibility.
Aggravated Assault seems weird in a more control oriented deck. It might be best to figure out if you want to go all in on attacking or build your vampires up over attrition...which reminds me Attrition, Grave Pact/Dictate of Erebos are super strong. Vampiric Rites can also help trigger the Pact/Dictate and get you some cards off your vampires/tokens.
Your deck is overwhelmingly black, so you can't go wrong with Jet Medallion, Ascendant Evincar or other cards that focus on the benefit to playing a single color. Like running Hero's Downfall over Dreadbore instant speed is going to be so much better, unless you decide to run Vedalken Orrery.
Okay, that's a lot of stuff, so I'll cap it off there. One last thing though, and this is kind of pricey so I get why this might not be in your deck: Volrath's Stronghold. It works great with Vampire Nocturnus by being able to chunk a dead vamp on top to get the boost when you don't have it naturally. Mortuary Mire can work in a pinch, but you only get one shot at it.

I don't think I've ever won a game of EDH via combat damage but this deck just blows my mind. I must have it! Looks super fun and also in my playgroup no one would see it coming from me hehe.
If I were you, I would cut Rakdos Carnarium for almost anything, maybe Temple of Malice. It is just so bad and awful when someone smiling at the other end of the table drops a Strip Mine and essentially blows up 2 lands with it.

In my deck I'll Be Taking That the land Sulfur Falls is showing up as a land that always enters tapped in the land mana pie chart on the right. While some lands that do always enter tapped, such as Myriad Landscape, Spinerock Knoll, Temple of Deceit, Temple of Epiphany , Temple of Malice are not showing up in that part of the pie chart.
