Just run Illness in the Ranks if you are having sideboard problems. And this build is far too slow to be of any use in modern, you really need to get the best vampire aggro cards to make it worth while. First of all, lower Dismember and Gatekeeper of Malakir down to 2 and remove Geth's Verdict . Then add 2 of any 2 of the following cards: Go for the Throat , Victim of Night , Urge to Feed and Slaughter Pact .

I understand that he won't remove the equipment, but at least try and have him use only 3 instead of 4.

As for your creatures, remove Guul Draz Assassin , put Vampire Nighthawk and Bloodghast as a 3 of, and lower Bloodline Keeper  Flip and Gatekeeper of Malakir both by 2. Then, you have a variety of creatures to choose from. Guul Draz Vampire , Vampire Lacerator , Ruthless Cullblade , Captivating Vampire and Malakir Bloodwitch are all really potent includes. I would personally add 4x Guul Draz Vampire and 3x Vampire Lacerator

We need two things to make this deck very good at aggro. We need a quick buffer, and we need a draw mechanic. The buffer is Vampire's Bite , which also doubles as an anti-RDW mechanic, and the draw is Sign in Blood , because it also doubles as damage directly to your opponent's face if you need that last inch to win the game. My last recommendation is Bad Moon , because black creatures aren't very plentiful in modern besides Sorin, Lord of Innistrad 's tokens, Tidehollow Sculler , Death's Shadow builds and Dark Confidant .

Finally, you have far too much land. Remove all of the Mutavault s, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx . Then add in 1 swamps. 21 land is about the most you want to be running in this build, but really fast paced decks with low mana curves like this one should hover on a land count lower than that.

I made a copy of this deck and put in some alterations to it as to how I would run the deck, you can use it as a general guide line. Vampire Tribal copy.

It looks fine. But i'd say -1 Disfigure for one more Lashwrithe . This really IS superior card in this deck. Whatever you attach it to, it does wonders. Tons of unblockable damage, super strong lifelink, very strongly hitting Korlash, you name it. I know it hurts killing your removals. But we can work to help it a bit. Somehow, dont know how yet, haha! Atm, we're running at 11 strong removals. 1 more less Disfigure for Go for the Throat would seem good. But then, we will have only 2 Disfigure 's left, which means it's really better to get rid of them. Then, you can put 1 more Profane Command and 1 more Consume Spirit . And, oh man, now, we're getting to the point, we realize we have another options. We can redo changes we did, put 2 more [[Profane Command]s for more dodge. Then, we always either have Vampire Nighthawk with flying, any creature with Profane Command (Or fear, intimidate, flying enchantment, whatever you want]]who can dodge, Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief who can kill enemy creatures(and has flying herself) and more removals. Consider those 2 options, as they are the most intelligent choices atm. I'd stick with the second one, though.

Oh crap, nevermind. You're right, with that much strong removal you (We're) pretty safe and sound. You know what, consider putting two or three Tormented Soul s in. It just has so much good synergy with Mistress Liliana of the Dark Realms and Lashwrithe . I guess it's not necessary, it just gives us more win conditions in case of token swarming, or something like that. You don't always have your Vampire Nighthawk up. Oh well, you could always just go with Bile Blight if you know you're facing tokens... I really don't know. I playtested it a lot, and i'd say it's pretty consistent. It runs very smoothly when Liliana hits the battlefield, and then it's really superior. Without her, well. Still very strong, i'd say. My only, sure suggestion is to sideboard 3-4x Bile Blight .
