Haha I was thinking the same, if you want to play w/b vampires, perhaps something with Blood Baron of Vizkopa, he's not that expensive for a mythic and in the right deck, he can do wonders. Add some Vampire Nighthawk, Tithe Drinker and Child of Night and you already have a nice lifegain vampire deck going on. For non-creature spells, Feast of Blood can fit in a lifegain deck pretty well and it has some nice 'vampire flavor' to it :)

I've got a 4th Loam hanging around that isn't spoken for, but I'm not seeing any value trades I'd want to pursue. Any chance you have any Terminate, Sign in Blood, Vampire Nighthawk, or Gray Merchant of Asphodel unlisted? If not then no worries and good luck with other trades!

Sorry for the late response. I can give you a much longer post this weekend sometime. I've been busy and doing some playtesting. With this deck, I don't think you need Bloodghast, but I do advise moving away from Stormchaser Mage. The problem with Stormchaser is that unless you're in a pure tempo shell (which this is not), it simply doesn't hit for enough damage. If you've had a different experience with it, I'm curious to hear about it since I have not tested extensively with it.

Here are the changes I would make:

4 Faithless Looting -> 4 Thought Scour

1 Skin Invasion  Flip -> 1 Serum Visions

4 Stormchaser Mage -> 2 Mana Leak, 1 Goblin Dark-Dwellers, 1 Rise/Fall

This will push your deck away from being Rocket Science and more towards traditional Grixis, but traditional Grixis is pretty good right now. You would eventually need Ancestral Vision, but I think you can wait until it (hopefully) gets reprinted in Eternal Masters.

If you want to play something more similar to Rocket Science (I won't be offended if you don't), then you should try and pick up 4 Bloodghast, but it's not necessary for the deck to function. The other option, if you don't want Bloodghast but want to play something similar to Rocket Science, then I have only started testing with the Relentless Dead version, but basically you just play Rocket Science with 2 Fleshbag Marauder in the place of Vampire Nighthawk, 4 Relentless Dead instead of 4 Bloodghast, and 4 Thought Scour instead of 4 Faithless Looting. I have not tested it thoroughly yet, so I don't know if it's good, but it is an option.

Less than 4 Snapcaster Mage was a budget thing for me; if you have the ability to borrow / trade for a 4th, I'd do it since it really belongs as a 4-of.

I really like Grim Lavamancer in here.

Nice deck! I'm honored my decklist was able to help you out.

Knight of Meadowgrain, Tithe Drinker, and Vampire Nighthawk are some good cheep creatures that are low in cmc and would be good for this kind of deck.

I would say that you need to cut everything in your deck that currently costs more than 3 mana. What you have now, just is not very good for the mana investment -- especially given that you do not have ways to ensure that you are consistently hitting land drops to consistently hit 7 mana on turn 7 at the latest. You could, as you ask, add cards that generate mana. But if you do so, I would cut the death touch theme all together. Trying to mix multiple archetypes generally just results a in a deck that is mediocre at a lot of things. It is generally best to focus in on a single set of synergies than it is to try be good at multiple things.

With that being said, as the the user above me stated, board wipes are generally very good vs elves. Sadly, the best ones are not cheap. Engineered Explosives, and Maelstrom Pulse would be best. However, you can certainly use a card like Drown in Sorrow or the aforementioned Languish. Generally not as good. But they are within the realm of playable-- especially on a budget. You also really need to cut Mutant's Prey. only your hydra can get +1/+1 counters.
