This deck is a primer for pretty much any and all mono-black strategies, including many which are budget. As mentioned in the primer, the list at the top is one that I play, and I have given examples of decks that are well within the realm of budget.
If you are looking to build on a budget yourself, feel free to go through the primer, as I've included many budget alternatives and strategies to cards.

Gotta spread love for mono-black players, so +1 from me.
Modern has some great vampire cards available to you, the most obvious being Captivating Vampire and Kalastria Highborn. This deck wants be very aggressive and you will probably want stronger vampires to play competitively.
Interaction. Modern is a turn 4 format, and you are going to need discard and a sideboard to have any chance of dealing with decks like Tron and whatnot. The best options for the moment are Thoughtseize and Inquisition of Kozilek.
Play 4 copies of Vampire Nocturnus, it is by far the best card in the deck, and you'll want to draw it every game.

A well-known deckbuilder named SaffronOlive made a great vampire list with options and whatnot a while back, you can find that here: SaffronOlive Vampire List Link

I loved playing RW Prison decks when they were a thing for a while. So I will give you what I know from playing those decks.
If you are running Blood Moon, you need to up your plains count, as you want to be playing Gideons and whatnot. I would say AT LEAST 5+ plains in the maindeck, becuase all your precious duals are going to be mountains anyways.
Chalice of the Void WAS the centerpiece for this deck back when infect was the real deal, but with all the tron decks now, more moons is likely the way to go. Which you should be maindecking since Spirit Guide isn't that great without really explosive plays.
Since this is more midrangey, I could see why not playing Ensnaring Bridge is alright. If you do choose to go for the more prison shell, it's still out there.
Blessed Alliance can serve as excellent sideboard if decks like bogles are played.
If you want any more suggestions, feel free to let me know.

I saw this off a related deck on my mono-black primer, figured I'd pitch my 2 cents.
I'd up your Urborg count up to 2, just to help for consistency.
