Sorin is easily my favorite character. I'd honestly put him over Venser or Gideon in terms of sheer badassery. Thing is he does very little to help this deck. Sorin's a control card, belongs in Dimir to compliment a horde of Jaces. Now if you ever tried Orzov or Mardu, the BW Sorins might be worth a one-of slot for buffs and tokes, both really do help you.

^exception being I'd keep some boardwipes in if nothing else, those help you so much being able to reset an unfavorable situation and drain some blood too.

I think a lot of the 4+ mana cards even with their synergy here are a bit heavy. Granted you're not Rakdos or Orzov so you have ramp, but successful Aristocrats-style vamps tend to usually go really cheap on mana to move fast.

I think your boardwipes should probably stay, as should highborn as she's vital to the engine. You have the right idea with Lacerator as he's a quick poke for fast damage. You're set up to flawlessly abuse Vampire Nocturnus or if you go mana-light, Dark Confidant, or the budget version Asylum Visitor.
I just think you need quick and dirty removal to keep fast decks from just murdering you as you're setting up.

I understand the desire to include things like Sorin for flavor, but don't you think high costed cards slow you down a bit much? Really think you could do with some instant removal, bare minimum 4 Fatal Push.
I understand this is meant to be flavorful and fun in lieu of being competitive, and short of outright going Rakdos or Mardu you hit the nail on the head. There are things you can do to make it run smoother though like trimming your mana curve or including answers to common threats. (I realize much of your deck is 2 mana but Highborn does tend to get pricey in aristocrats-style vamps).
Just some blood for thought. Good luck mate.
