Tribute to Hunger Discussion

Temples seem just too slow for an aggro deck but maybe they work for you, I don't personally play it I'm just on the outside looking in.Tribute to Hunger seems too slow, Cruel Edict does what Tribute does but comes out a turn earlier (Can be pretty important, for example bloom titan that opens t1 amulet, t2 bloom, primetime. When the life pays off (Vs burn or another type of aggro) you're just not getting enough life to make it worth that extra mana.)
Curse of the Pierced Heart not too sure why this is in here but I'll just nod my head and go with it.
All viable modern enchantments to replace it with and are pretty cool.
Hopefully this was kinda helpful

I've been fine-tuning my own Red-Black Vampire deck for almost a year now, and I've gone through a lot of the cards you have listed in this deck at the moment at one time or another. Ultimately I've found that Vamps work best with about 60% creatures and 40% removal spells - everything else is just getting in the way of the goal, which is to hit them hard and fast and keep their board clear for your Vamps to keep hitting. If you want to check my one out, you can see it here: Fury of the Night
Things like Diabolic Tutor, Distress, Morgue Theft and Morbid Plunder need to go, you're not trying to control their hand, just hit them. You don't need to return creatures from your graveyard to your hand, there's always more creatures coming out of the deck or from your hand. Sanguine Bond and Exquisite Blood seem great on paper, but are best left to a deck which is trying to do that combo, not luck into having those cards or using a tutor for them (Diabolic Tutor to get Sanguine Bond means investing 9 mana over the course of two turns, for which you could play 3 creatures or kills spells, or combinations of those to get you 2 turns closer to victory instead).
Choose the creatures you like to best, get a playset of them, and scrap/sideboard the rest. Vampire Hexmage definately to sideboard, she's a nice Planeswalker killer or useful against Hydras and other counter-based strategies, but not worthy of the mainboard.
Creatures I'd suggest, staying mono-black:
4x Blood Seeker
4x Blood Artist
Removal I'd suggest:
4x Doom Blade
4x Tribute to Hunger (excellent Vamp card)
and keep the 2x Blade of the Bloodchief
Sideboard the 4x Murder so you can swap out for the Doom Blade against another black deck. Consider Murderous Cut as you will be filling up your graveyard quite consistently with the other removal spells. Spells like Cruel Edict are handy to side in against Hexproof decks which render your other removal useless.
Hope that helps!

I'd remove all sorceries, Toshi only works with instants so I'd play to that strength and include only instants. To do this, throw in a Fevered Strength for draw and pump, and since you're running so many creatures you should play Footbottom Feast and Gravepurge which are instant recursions for your creatures. I'd also include these kill instants: Devour in Shadow (another sac spell), Disembowel (a cmc up to 4 to kill anything your opponent throws at you and pay B to kill tokens), Eyeblight's Ending (destroy a non-elf), Go for the Throat (destroy a non-artifact), Murder, Tribute to Hunger (sac and gain life)
