I would cut your enchantments and the Ghoulcaller's Chant s. In my experience, cards that synergize with zombies but aren't zombies themselves aren't as good as just playing more zombies. Havengul Lich should go as well since its cmc is too high, and there are better removal spells than Celestial Flare . Your deck is also missing Tidehollow Sculler .
All in all, I suggest these changes:
-4 enchantments; +4 Tidehollow Sculler

I actually made a $15 vampire deck for someone else a while back! Here it is if you want any ideas for your deck: $15 Madness Vampires.
Otherwise, here are the changes I would for sure make to your deck:
+3 Fiery Temper , -3 any of the other noncreature cards

I saw on your Faeries deck that you wanted to build Modern UB Faeries but was daunted by the price. If you don't mind me suggesting one, take a look at this deck: Faerie Rogue Tribal. It's closer to aggro than the typical UB control deck that competitive Faeries is, but if that isn't a concern for you and you're looking to get into modern with a less expensive Faeries deck you might like it.

Oh no, I have some of these cards but I'm not planning on building this deck at all. It's just what I would play if I were to theoretically make a goblins deck since they made one of my favorite goblins ( Goblin Ringleader ) modern legal. This deck is mostly based off Legacy goblin deck lists.

This is just food for thought, but it could be worth replacing Miscreants or Faerie Seers with more Changeling Outcast s to get extra triggers off Ingenious Infiltrator . At the very least I'd cut the single Curious Obsession to fit another Outcast in, as I feel that the ninja synergy and increased 1-drop consistency is better than whatever benefit one Curious Obsession could offer.

Because it's 3 mana and Neoform works better with the non-combo part of the deck (ex. you can sacrifice a Young Wolf to get a Huatli's Raptor that enters with a +1/+1 counter and proliferates, making 7 power for 2 mana). The fact that it's 3 mana is the bigger reason, though.

I'm not quite a seasoned pauper player, but you could play some infect cards like Glistener Elf / Blight Mamba and Blighted Agent since you already have Vines of Vastwood in there. Probably in place of Uktabi Drake and Nest Invader. Also, I believe Careful Study is pauper legal, it would help a lot with card dumping and cycling through your deck.

Nice deck. It's based off of Legacy Goblins, right? The only thing I'd add is a couple Piledrivers in the main to get those occasional fast wins. Since you're playing black it could be worth trying Frogtosser Banneret in place of Goblin Warchief to allow the possibility of casting a Ringleader or 3-drop + 2-drop on turn 3, though you lose the haste. Also, maybe replace 1 Blood Moon in the side with 1 Magus of the Moon since you can flash it in with Vial.

Hi, I've played (and still play) Rogues extensively in modern, and there are a few things I want to mention:
If you go with the advice above, you'll also need to add a few more one-drops (10-12 total). Stinkdrinker on turn 2 can often mean big damage the next turn, and Blackguard benefits from playing more 1 cmc cards since you can go wide with them and make your opponent discard multiple cards. I also recommend going up on the number of one-drops so you can reliably cast Noggin Whack on curve as it is a great tool to have against Control and Midrange.
There are a few differing opinions out there on the topic of Frogtosser Banneret ; personally, I don't think it's necessary in Rogue decks, but it's not particularly bad, either. It can lead to power turns but if you build your deck around it too much you can get really clunky hands with lots of high cmc Prowl cards and no enablers. I find it to be more consistent and better overall to play more one-drops and cast Prowl cards for their full Prowl costs rather than go for the power plays with Banneret. You do what you want with it, but try not to fall into the deck building trap I mentioned just now.
I wouldn't play too many Whack / Theft since they can tempt you into casting them instead of advancing your board state. Though chaining Noggin Whacks together with Frogtosser Banneret is pretty insane.
The first is more tempo-aggro oriented and the second is all-out aggro (second one is an example of the type of deck where I think Frogtosser shines). They're both mixes of tribal decks (Faerie/Rogue and Goblin/Rogue), so they're a bit different from what you have here, but I hope they help.

Your deck looks fine, but your sb looks really light on Tron and artifact hate. Idk what your local scene is so this might not be relevant to you, but I'd play 4 Thoughtseize total in the 75 rather than 2 IoK and 2 TS (budget permitting) to help against Tron and Karn lock decks, as you'll never be able to win once they get that Mycosynth Lattice down. I would also play more gy hate (all 4 Yixlid Jailers).
