Well if your budget isn't a huge factor you can definitely make some swaps on some of the Vampires you have in your deck for some with a bit more value I'd pull Barony Vampire and Vampire Noble for sure just because they don't do anything for you except be vampires. Maybe throw in an Indulgent Aristocrat and Dark Impostor instead.

i know this has already been mentioned before, but if you can swing it, you should really consider adding (AT LEAST) the following cards:
though i like Voldaren Pariah
Flip for flavor, i'm not really convinced that it's worth it. she's a 3/3 for that requires sacrificing THREE creatures to do anything even halfway decent...maybe you can squeeze her in as a one-of? as an alternative win-con? iunno
in terms of which cards to remove, i would prob do:
Nightmare isn't synergistic enough for including ANY really, let alone x4; Vampire Noble = just plain awful; Stromkirk Mentor is OKAY, but Kalitas is MUCH better; Resourceful Return is meh, especially with only 2x artifacts in the entire deck;
& maybe the hardest cut overall, Carrier Thrall--i understand the synergy with Indulgent Aristocrat, i do, but your curve is wayyyyyyyyy maxed on in the 2-drop, so you really need to cut something clogging up that spot. for creatures to sacrifice in-game, you'd still have:
$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$i know my suggestions might break the bank a bit, but Amonkhet coming out soon, prices on a lot of cards are dropping pretty significantly. Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet & Drana, Liberator of Malakir are still pretty expensive (around $50 for all five), BUT yahenni is only 1$, visitor is only $.60, & grasp/transgress fluctuate between $1 to $2.
SORRY FOR THE NOVEL / HOPE THIS HELPS !!

The Crow of Dark Tidings can go as you have no cards in that deck that benefit from either Delirium. You have only one means of Waste mana production, so n there is no need for Drownyard Temple or Kozilek's Shrieker. Same applies to Foreboding Ruins and Choked Estuary. Without any other means of getting energy counters, having Aether Poisoner in the deck wouldn't be necessary. I see some synergy with Vampire Noble, Indulgent Aristocrat and Carrier Thrall. You could sacrifice the Carrier Thralls to pump Vampire Noble from the ability of Indulgent Aristocrat. Equip two of the Vampire Nobles with Haunted Cloak, and it can be quite lethal to the unsuspecting. If you want to that route, you may want to acquire Gifted Aetherborn, which has deathtouch, lifelink, and would benefit from the pump from Indulgent Aristocrat. This also opens up your deck to keep your zombie producer's like Shamble Back and your creature recursion spells like Resourceful Return. You can trim the number of Swamp to 24.

Have you tried this against another person? I know it's mono black but since you only have 20 lands wouldn't that make it harder to get a land card? Cut Grim Haruspex since this card is not standard anymore, Vampire Noble just because.

Very simple, very aggro, good start. I would, however not want to board-wipe myself with 4 Languish in there. 2 in the sideboard would be more like it, making room for 4 To the Slaughter or Vampire Noble

Even by budget standards, Vampire Noble is not a good card. There is zero reason to play an overpriced vanilla creature in a constructed deck. It's minor synergies with Indulgent Aristocrat and Markov Dreadknight are not enough to redeem it.
Dauntless Cathar has the same price, same CMC, and the same power/toughness while doing a whole lot more for you. It works well with Thalia's Lieutenant, and is a perfect target for Slayer's Plate (once they decide to kill your 7 power creature, you get a free 1/1 flying spirit which they have to deal with when it becomes a 5/3 from the Plate. Once that's gone, exile Dauntless Cathar for ANOTHER spirit which can be made into a large flying threat)
