If i was going to build around this I'd:

-2 Carnival Hellsteed

-2 Underworld Cerberus

+1 Tymaret, the Murder King

+1 Gore-House Chainwalker

dump the current spell package except Dying Wish

+4 Lightning Bolt

+4 Terminate

+2 Duress

+3 Dreadbore or Vampire's Bite maybe?

That would give you a pretty decent aggro build! kill threats, smash face. Nice and simple.

And hey now Chasmolinker I have a soft spot for slivers ;)

One of my favorite cards in mono black is Vampire Nighthawk. I would play four because its so versatile. Might help you with offsetting some of the cost of cards like Phyrexian Arena and/or Necropotence if you decide to run that card. I think I might run two Necropotence/Phyrexian Arena if you had the option, just for a more consistent chance at drawing it.

Vampire's Bite is also a nice card to get some life link for the turn. Eternal Thirst is pretty cool too.

As far as cuts, I would say Sol Ring, Aether Vial and Spinning Darkness would be my first ones just because you only have 1 of each. How often do you find yourself in need of that mana when you are running twenty lands and the four dark rituals?

Vampire's Bite but Mutagenic Growth is way better because it's free.

I think without a really strong target like Invisible Stalker or maybe a trick like Cinder Elemental, Tainted Strike will be worse than just playing a strong infect creature to begin with. If you run more Plague Stinger, Ichorclaw Myr, Flesh-Eater Imp, Hand of the Praetors, and swap Contagious Nim for Phyrexian Crusader or Razor Swine, you'll be more resistant to removal and won't have to spend cards just to gain infect. You can use that mana instead on cheap pump spells like Titan's Strength and Vampire's Bite. If you do stick with the Strike, I'd probably go all in on creatures that benefit from it. Vexing Devil, Goblin Guide, and Monastery Swiftspear would be the usual suspects, but I have always wanted to test out Immolating Souleater myself. Grafted Exoskeleton could probably be replaced by or supplemented with Phyresis to speed things up, and I'd also look at Rogue's Passage for Whispersilk Cloak redundancy if flying isn't strong enough evasion.

It's always nice to see a mono black Vampire list. I used to run one myself before I repurposed the deck into others, and seeing them brings nostalgia. Out of curiosity, have you considered running B/R for the deck to be better competitively, or are you certain that you want this to be a strictly mono black build? Regardless, just a couple thoughts.

Consider running more 1 CMC cards to give yourself turn 1 plays. Whether it be more removal, more buffing/utility spells, or more creatures, Vampires as a tribe prefer aggressive builds that start quickly.

Some stragglers to consider replacing include Child of Night and Vampire's Bite.

Also, wanted to point out that I love the synergy with Quag Vampires and Contaminated Ground.

Thanks, ektoe253, for the good suggestions. Vampire's Bite makes for a nice combat trick for extra damage or killing something that needs to go. The ability to get even more value out of it mid-game makes it sweet indeed. Eternal Thirst would help give me staying power and grow my forces a bit as well, both of which this deck needs. Gifted Aetherborn looks very nice indeed. It's almost Vampire Nighthawks 4-8. One cheaper for no flying. I see real value here. It would fit very nicely in my Mono-Black Devotion deck for the same reason that the Nighthawks do.
