Yo TheErebos!

Alright so the weakest cards I see so far is actually:

All of these ones don't really advance your board state or by the time it comes in, it doesn't really matter as much. Undertaker and Liliana, Untouched By Death will definitely help you out more than one of the above ones.

On a side note, brooooooooooo those foils are siiiiiick I'm so jealous!!!

Sorry to spam, but I forgot to mention one more card: if Tortured Existence is important for your build, you can also add Undertaker.

You can dump any card (not just a creature) for the same effect. It may not be easy to squeeze her in, because she's not any of desired races, but still - can be quite useful.

OK, I've been searching on gatherer for all cards with discard effect (quite a lot xD). Honorable mentions:

So...that will be all buddy. Sadly WotC don't care about good vampires with discard theme :c

I'm going to suggest finding some good recursion--if you're going to be dumping cards every turn, you will almost certainly be tossing something you'll need later. Maybe Phyrexian Reclamation, or a couple of Aphetto Dredging to support the Undertakers that I strongly recommend. Or just rely on Squee, Goblin Nabob.

Outside of that, Spellshapers tend toward the small and control-y, but there are enough exceptions to work with. All of the legendary ones make good finishers, and there's one in every color ( has two).

Haunted Fengraf might find a place here. Also, any love for Liliana, the Last Hope or Liliana, the Necromancer to solidify that lock while providing alternative utility? Sword of Light and Shadow or Undertaker is a full lock. Also, thoughts on running Korlash, Heir to Blackblade to make more use of the graveyard shenanigans?

Feels only natural to include The Gitrog Monster, you already have half of the Gitrog deck.
Wharf Infiltrator another card that fits the theme nicely.
Is not yet out, but Muldrotha, the Gravetide (from Dominaria), will be a nice inclusionwhen it's finally released.
Undertaker for more tokens and recursion.
Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest, Thunderfoot Baloth, Beastmaster Ascension, Curse of Predation to pump all your guys.
More card draw! always need more card draw! Skullmulcher, Driven / Despair, Deathreap Ritual, Vampiric Rites, Shamanic Revelation... Some counterspells on the low cost, low color requirements side would also be handy Disdainful Stroke, Siren Stormtamer, Stratus Dancer, Swan Song maybe Stubborn Denial.

I think Undertaker might be okay here, turning unneeded cards in hand into more sacrifice fodder. Maybe take out 1 Aether Poisoner and 1 Aether Swooper?

I think black is sort of a must-have for madness decks myself, as it has all the good discard outlests, and a ton of madness cards to back them up.

But if you dont want black, you may be able to make up lost card advantage via Avaricious Dragon, but its still a poor substitute for things like Undertaker, Tortured Existence, Grave Scrabbler, Asylum Visitor, Zombie Infestation, Big Game Hunter, ect.
