I would suggest taking out 5 Swamp to add 4 Bloodstained Mire and 1 Smoldering Marsh (or 1 Blood Crypt, not sure what would be better in this slot). That essentially gives us 4 extra copies of Leechridden Swamp and the ability to flashback Bump in the Night in games that eventually go long.

Yo aren't you the guy that 5-0ed a modern event on MTGO? I understand cutting Bolt, but why did you cut Bob? You have all the Vampire-synergy going I guess, but that honestly feels weaker compared to the ability to enable automatic card draw every turn. I assume the intention is to use Stromkirk Condemned to empty your hand for Asylum Visitor in addition to triggering madness, but that seems worse than access to Bob and cards like Gravecrawler or Grey Merchant of Asphodel.
Obliterator also seems surprisingly weak in a meta where even Scapeshift sometimes playsets Fatal Push lmao, but I guess Path to Exile is at an all time low right now too to even it out. Speaking of Scapeshift, How does that matchup look for you? Just looking at your list it seems rough for the Black Aggro player to overcome any of the different breeds of Scapeshift, whether it's RUG, 5 color, Titan-Shift or the weird Through the Breach hybrid version. You could try swapping an Inquisition for another Thoughtseize as you deck currently has no way MB or SB to beat a t4 Primetime, and all variants of Scapeshift have gained massive amount of popularity due to it's newfound presence in the meta and positive Death's Shadow matchup.
Otherwise, this list looks good! I'm really impressed with the results and love to see innovative and new decks being played, and this deck is no different.

Scorpix, I'm flattered that you like the deck! I did indeed go 5-0 in a Competitive Modern event on MTGO (I played against Dredge, two Death's Shadow decks and two Elves decks, so not much variety but I went 10-1 in games throughout the run!) I'll try to answer all of the above questions!
Stromkirk Condemned and Asylum Visitor have been replaced by Sign in Blood and Dark Confidant as 4 ofs.
Obliterator is a monster against Eldrazi and any midranged deck that doesn't have an immediate answer. Even though it is weak to Push and Path (also, things like Liliana of the Veil and Maelstrom Pulse can wreck you too) the brute power of the card means they must answer it as soon as they see it or they probably lose. It has not underperformed with this in mind so I have kept it in the list.
The sideboard has changed quite a bit since I originally posted: I now run 3 Blood Moon in the sideboard for Scapeshift among other things. This has made the matchup much better but still probably in the 40-60 range for me, at best. I'd say Scapeshift is my second weakest matchup at the moment, with Ad Nauseum being the worst.
If you want more details, message me privately or come out and watch my stream! I plan to stream Monday - Friday throughout the summer at 3pm-6pm Eastern time most days, although some days might be a little later or earlier.
