Underworld Connections Discussion

Replace Bloodcrazed Neophyte. If you want a 2/1 CMC 2 vampire, get Child of Night or Tithe Drinker. Bloodghast is definitely the best to add but it ain't cheap and you don't have much in the way to abuse it's easy recursion mechanic.
Blinding Flare is really not doing you many favours and super situation. Anguished Unmaking or Utter End (both, both is super good) will straight up remove the threat for you and even adds more control over things you are seem weak to deal with.
Death's grasp. If you want more creature killing power, add one of the removal I've already suggested, if you want to drain players, Debt to the Deathless.
I prefer more control over what is getting removed than what Consuming vapors offers really. You are in the 3 best colours for spot removal.
Again, don't like Skeletal Scrying, but you have a fair bit of draw so how about some recursion? Oversold Cemetery or Phyrexian Reclamation plays into Edgar's hands, providing you with vampires to recast and get more tokens. If you do want instant speed draw, Merciless Resolve is perfect. You're making shit loads of tokens so can put them to good use.
Vampiric Fury is super situational, but I do like it. I do think Stensia Masquerade is better though, mainly because it sticks around for more than one turn and can put things heavily in your favour.
Faith's Reward is definitely a hit or miss card. Sure, everyone should be running board wipes (You really should slot some into this deck as emergency buttons) but it's just, I'm not a fan. It would be my first cut to put a board wipe in like Wrath of God, Merciless Eviction or the likes.
The Curses do you no favours really. Well Vitality could. But I'd much rather replace them for some anthems. Dictate of Heliod, Cathars' Crusade, even Spear of Heliod for it's rattlesnake effect are all ways to get more productivity out of your tokens. For something more thematic and possibly easier to get a hold of, Campaign of Vengeance is both thematic and will mess people up with how many dorks you can swing with.

Hey there! Welcome back to the world of EDH!
A few suggestions for you - biggest thing I am noting is not enough draw and ramp. I count about 3 draw engines in the deck, more if you count your tutors. As a general heuristic I aim for about 10 solid draw effects, either powerful one shots or strong engines like you have in Phyrexian Arena and Skullclamp. Underworld Connections, Read the Bones, Necropotence, Land Tax, Gift of Estates, Promise of Power, Damnable Pact, Read the Bones all reasonable options pending budget.
As for ramp I also typically aim for 10 total sources. Myriad Landscape is an easy inclusion in 2 color decks that only occupies a land slot, other possibilities would be Ashnod's Altar with your token theme, Mind Stone, criminally underplayed Wayfarer's Bauble,Commander's Sphere, and personal favorites Everflowing Chalice Worn Powerstone and Thran Dynamo.
That leads me to a couple of other suggestions - replace token makers with more powerful iterations. Conqueror's Pledge and Nomads' Assembly are decent cards, but Secure the Wastes, Decree of Justice, or even Entreat the Angels are all more scalable and mostly instant speed, a huge boon in edh.
So what to cut? I would start with a few cards that I believe are underpowered - Archdemon of Unx, Phyrexian Gargantua, Elixir of Immortality, aforementioned token producers. I would also consider finding good but expensive cards to cut to lower Your curve - i have found the ideal sweet spot in edh is 3-4 mana power plays more so than 6-7 mana bombs that die to a removal spell or board wipe.

Hey you might wanna pull Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, it nonbos with Scarab God as exiling their creatures prevents bringing them back as Eternals. Fraying Sanity, Risen Executioner or Sphinx's Tutelage could be replacements. Underworld Connections also helps keep hand full.

Here are some more fun ways to make your opponents discard cards and lose life. You mentioned that you just play with your friends, if you play multiplayer games then the cards that say each opponent are especially powerful-
Other good Mono stuff
Underworld Connections can help refill your hand while emptying your opponents
Hope this helps trim and focus the deck a bit more and gives you some more ideas to brew with!

Other Upcoming changes:
Door of Destinies => Sorin, Solemn Visitor feels like i am missing something not running a sorin walker
Utter End => Vona, Butcher of Magan (lifegain subtheme )
Vandalblast => Purphoros, God of the Forge might re add the vandalblast later on..
Blind Obedience => Sanctum Seeker
Dictate of Erebos => Archangel of Thune fits with the slight lifegain theme
Lightning Greaves might get swapped out for Settle the Wreckage for a while as i really liked the short gameplay review you posted on your decklist :-)

Your decklist looks quite solid, so Im going to focus on your intended maybeboard work.
First off, I find Vona, Butcher of Magan to be underwhelming in this sort of list, and better suited as her own commander or in something like Karlov. Id discontinue the consideration haha
Finally, Underworld Connections is okay but it makes a land less useful unless you werent using it already (so rock bottom). The mana is important - Id allege moreso than draw a lot of the time. Plus you have other sources of draw so Im not worried there. Another plausible cut really.
That should give you room for maybeboard inclusions. Hope it helps.
*: Bloodcrazed Paladin, while neat as a response to wipes, is very vanilla otherwise so this card might also not be necessary. Your call. Id choose to retain Door of Destinies over Underworld Connections if this cut is made from the maybeboard.

My recommendation would be swap out Orzhov Keyrune, Pristine Talisman,Underworld Connections. for a mana rock is expensive, especially if it only generates colorless or 1-2 colors. Underworld Connections would be alright in a golgari deck IMO, but here it is going to take away from your potential mana pool as you'll have to tap the land for a card instead of mana.
Just my thoughts

Thanks for the help Daedalus19876! Those were some cards I haven't really thought about before. I do agree with Anguished Unmaking over Hero's Downfall, exiling is just so much more reliably in my opinion. I love Harsh Mercy, I can't believe I've never seen it before. Patriarch's Bidding is a card I've been trying to find a home for in this deck for a long time. I agree and disagree at the same time :/ about Underworld Connections and Phyrexian Arena, I like having the option to draw cards so I don't lose too much life. However, this is deck has a lifegain subtheme so I should be fine. I don't know, I've been going back and forth between the two for a while.
