Vampire Nighthawk isn't as great in EDH so maybe switch it for Grave Titan or other cards with ETB effects.

Jet Medallion is a nice cheap mana rock that i like.

get a Diabolic Tutor instead of Dark Petition since you don't have many cards to trigger spell mastery.

Have you considered adding Vampire Nighthawk to the deck? It's a great 3 mana card with flying and lifelink. It's only like a dollar each also.

What would you think about Captivating Vampire, or 2x Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet? I have a similar deck (not on tappedout), that also runs 4x Feast of Blood and a playset of Vampire Nighthawk.

As someone who have been trying to play mono-black Vampires in modern for a while, my opinions on the following cards:

Vampire Lacerator - frequently outclassed by opposing creatures, poor topdeck lategame. Vampires are not aggro enough to warrant the inclusion of this guy, I feel.

Vampire Nighthawk - good in some situations but just too bad against red decks to be a reliable 4-of.

Captivating Vampire - Extremely extremely difficult to get 5 creatures on the battlefield in Modern in general.

Blood Artist - we definitely don't have a critical mass of creatures to take advantage of this guy. He could be played as a 1-of if we play the most crucial creature in a Vampire deck:

Bloodghast - a threat that keeps coming back. Absolutely vital in all Vampire decks. Good synergy with Liliana of the Veil and fetchlands.

You might also want to either maximise the number of Vampire Nocturnus or play some number of Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet (good synergy with our removal options, such as Slaughter Pact). Liliana of the Veil is too good not to play in some number. Mutavault is also the best colorless vampire we can play - you just have to mitigate them with more Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth.

hey, I have a dissension Spell snare btw. i would be fine with Spell Snare + Overwhelming Denial + Daze + Desolate Lighthouse for your lighthouse, i know our totals are fairly close i just would like to try and get the Vampire Nighthawk off you if possible or maybe a Stubborn Denial ! Get back to me sorry about the confusion.

Vampire Nighthawk

Also going infinite is fun with Sanguine Bond + Exquisite Blood and it's on theme

Sounds fine. Look into at least obtaining Olivia and Kalitas though. With that lineup you'd have a lot of low cost creatures, should swarm nicely. But ditch captivating for Stromkirk Captain. Part of the dynamic duo with Vampire Nighthawk. Or as I like to call them, Batman and Captain Kirk. 3 captain 2 nighthawk if you need space is fine.

I honestly don't see how you get anything accomplished with this deck. Running so many singletons, especially of the combo you commented on, makes it far too easy to disrupt this deck. A board wipe would wreck this deck.

Also, no Vampire Nighthawk in a Vampire deck? Really? I can only assume you just tossed this together from cards you already had. It's a good start, but needs some serious tweaking.

And yes, Nightmare rocks. <3
