Looks good, but Lone Rider Flip wants a word with you. Also, Blessed Alliance and From Under the Floorboards are a better fit in your deck than many of the vampires, but if that's your theme it's fine, i'd say try Call the Bloodline then

I agree with Countermage, Lone Rider Flip and Call the Bloodline would work great in this. As would Immolating Glare because it's all well and good to use Dazzling Reflection but let's say they have a 10/10, you use reflection to gain 10 life, which is great, but you haven't really dealt with the threat, just posponed it.
Defiant Bloodlord and Felidar Soverigncould be effective win conditions that dovetail nicely. DeadWeight and/or Shamble Back could be useful utility cards, though i'd probably go with weight because it removes early game creatures, and weakens late game threats. As for straight removal Sinister Concoction shouldn't be overlooked without play testing, Collective Effort could be great sideboard tech against a lot of strategies, and Collective Brutality may even be mainboard utility. With regards to cheap vampires that enable life gain Kalastria Healer+ March from the Tomb enable a great wincon together, but also work to slowly drain your opponents life. I could also recommend Vampire Cutthroat
If you'd like any clarification on my suggestions, give me a shout, I can see a few alterations to main board that could make this drain opponents out fast. Also, sorry for the essay :)

This is very similar to a build I'm fiddling with. The Grim Lord Giveth and the Grim Lord Taketh Away. Most of the recommendations I would make have already been covered.

I think that Zulaport Cutthroat would be a fine addition to this deck. You will definitely face removal, so you might as well make it as painful as possible. I would suggest 4x Zulaport Cutthroat and downsize to 2x Sorin, Grim Nemesis, 2x Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim, 2x Dazzling Reflection, and either 1x Ondu Rising or 2x Read the Bones. That would make room for all 4 Zulaport Cutthroats.
I have a different version of this based on Allies. Perhaps you may get a few ideas from it? B/W Ally life gain/drain
Nice looking deck! +1 from me!
