Hey there, I see your interested in building vampires too. I started doing up a list with all of my changes included, and this is what I have come up with so far:
There's just so many cards I wanted to cram into this thing and that is why it's currently about 5-6 cards over the limit, but this should still give you some ideas as to what to do with yours as well. Any feedback is appreciated on my own version!

I'm currently leaning towards edgar markov as my commander although Licia, sanguine tribune I do admit looks like fun too.
Anyways the first thing I would start with here for your deck is improving the mana base a bit and taking out things like Orzhov Guildgate and swapping them for things like Godless Shrine, Shambling Vent, Concealed Courtyard, and what not. Same goes for the Urborg Volcano swapping for Blood Crypt and or Smoldering Marsh, and Foreboding Ruins. Some other lands to consider adding if you want to pay more on this deck include; Cabal Coffers & Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, fetchlands such as Marsh Flats, Arid Mesa, and Bloodstained Mire.
Additionally i'm sticking with the life subtheme, and strengthening it actually a bit by adding Exquisite Blood once I acquire one, Debt to the Deathless and or Exsanguinate, Aetherflux Reservoir, Felidar Guardian, and Alhammarret's Archive. Also while not being a vampire Rhox Faithmender could help even more with this kind of strategy, and you can get around them not being a vampire by running cards like Mephidross Vampire and Conspiracy.
Others to get for this are Bloodline Keeper, Necropolis Regent, Kalastria Highborn, Nirkana Revenant if you can afford it which would work great alongside previously mentioned Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, Cabal Coffers and furthermore Crypt Ghast, Magus of the Coffers etc.
I'm also likely using Anointed Procession in my deck, as I can't resist wanting to try that out alongside edgar markov's eminence ability, and other effects from Bloodline Keeper and Call the Bloodline. Then likewise I will be including cards that care about having a lot of creatures out preferably. So I will have Westvale Abbey Flip, and things like Stensia Banquet, Sorin, Solemn Visitor, and possibly some other cards such as Vampiric Fury.
But I think I have written enough already and better come to an end, I do hope anyways some of this is of help to you!

Blood Baron of Vizkopa is difficult to get as good as you want him to be.
Blood Seeker is pretty whatever against decks that aren't tokens
Falkenrath Gorger needs support to really get to there, though he can be alright if you get there
Gifted Aetherborn is likely a tad more defensive than you aim to be, though I'm slightly more a fan of Nighthawk, since flying takes down most dragon-y monsters
Mirri the Cursed is sweet, but not very impactful. I can't fault anyone for wanting to run her though.
Olivia, Mobilized for War has a somewhat steep cost to grant haste, and most of your dudes are vamps already
Tithe Drinker gets a no from me, too
I was never "wowed" by Blade of the Bloodchief in Olivia, myself.
Four Sorins is going to be too many, too often. Maybe try trimming one of them to avoid drawing multiples?
If you can swing it, ABUr's and fetches have a silent impact, yet smooth out so many mana issues. Can't reccomend them enough.
That's what I saw in my first glance-through. I'd avoid running cards that only drain/gain life-- even if they're vampires-- and would instead focus on jamming more impactful cards. That said, I still run Baron Sengir for sentimentality reasons, so I can't blame you for wanting to run a few pet cards as well. I've felt for a while now that vampires are as few as two years away from being a legitimately great tribe (not that they're unplayable now), but Wizards needs to show a bit more love to them. They do suffer from a case of split-personality having been Black's iconic and characteristic race at different times. I've been running Olivia since Innistrad, and I feel your pain of making the switch to Mardu, but I'm optimistic that it'll make for a better deck. Cuts are going to be rough though, that's for certain. Check out my list if you need inspiration.
Anyhow, if you have any specific questions or thoughts, feel free to shoot me a message. I usually reply within a week, depending on how busy work gets.Cheers, and God bless.

Hey friend. You've got a great start here -- I love the strong synergies and powerful payoffs. First thing to do is find cards to cut: since you're running Vampire tribal, I'd first cut every creature that isn't a Vampire or a mechanical friend to Vampires. As cool as Akroma/Flamerush/Ammit/Combat Celebrant and the rest are, they simply aren't Vampires, and are therefore less powerful in a tribal deck than any other kind. Yes, you can get Olivia to make them Vampires, but why spend 2 mana activating her ability when you could just put in a Vampire? Other cards that are good, but not in an aggressive combo-y deck are Spellbook, Edifice of Authority, and Chandra and Liliana. I would also replace most or all of your kill spells and tutors, since cards like Victim of Night and Feast of Blood and Diabolic Tutor are way more effective than what you've currently got.
Cards that should replace those, in addition to Wizno's excellent suggestions, are: Ascendant Evincar, Rakish Heir, Olivia's Bloodsworn, Vampiric Fury, Stensia Banquet, and so forth. P Both Innistrad blocks and both Zendikar blocks (especially the first ZEN block) have tons of Vampires, so they're good starting places. Also, a couple off-the-wall suggestions are Ring of Xathrid (since so many Vampires have first strike), and Key to the City to encourage some Madness/card draw/unblockable.
Hope that helps! Mention me if I can do anything else for you! Cheers

I have 2 mates that both have vampire decks, one that's based on anthem effects and the other based +1/+1 counters. You've got most of the good stuff but here's a few cards you may have missed: Feast of Blood great cheap removal that fits the theme, Urge to Feed free +1/+1 counters on all of your vamps, Guul Draz Vampire good one drop with some later game potential, Blood Tribute mean, just mean. Malakir Bloodwitch flying fatty with a nice etb trigger, Blood Seeker cheap vamp that really punishes creature heavy decks and kills opponents with infinite combos that revolve around creatures entering. Necropolis Regent just a great bomb even by itself. Havengul Vampire gets real fat real quick. Rakish Heir helps all your vamps get fatter, Falkenrath Exterminator nice creature removal if you get enough counters. finally Vampiric Fury ends games. I think i got all the good ones but i am probably wrong, if i mentioned stuff already in your deck i'm sorry and also nice deck +1 from me.

I appreciate the comment, lagotripha. I had at one time considered shared animosity and had forgotten about it completely! Thank you for bringing it back to my attention, I once ran with Vampiric Fury, it worked pretty well.
Indulgent aristocrat is great as well, been considering swapping him in as my one drop vampire
Blade of the blood chief is something I've liked since I first saw it. I may take out whip of Erebos for it.
Once again thank you

DArkaNZ Yahenni, Undying Partisan looked interesting to me so I'm trying it. He's slightly cheaper than Vampire Aristocrat which makes madness easier. He's has game against aggro as he can protect himself and gets bigger when your opponent's creatures die (to anything). He has game against control, immediately presenting a clock on a protected body. Nothing about his screams some crazy synergy but he just has versatility. He can trigger revolt for Fatal Push as well. Vampiric Fury looks spicy and it would be great to see it work. Problem is the card is only good when you have full board. Let's look at Captivating Vampire as an example. He lords the team like most lords and his ability to steal creatures requires you to have lots of vampires out. So it requires a large board too, but only for the steals. He still has immediate impact as a body. If I draw you Vampiric Fury after getting wrathed, I would cry.
Gifted Aetherborn looks really good. Might be the go to spot if I do decide to lower the curve.

Happymaster19 nice deck! I love it!
My questions:1) Why 2 Yahenni, Undying Partisan? Ok, it's a good card, but do you think it is modern playable?2) What do you think about Vampiric Fury? I was thinking about a supper aggro version of this deck with many 1 drops plus Vampiric Fury and burn spells like Lightning Bolt and maybe Fiery Temper. This is because I think that if we try to do Jund things we will not be as good as Jund in this. So why not playing Jund instead?
