tardaniele: About the Neglected Heirloom Flip, if Grasp of Darkness isn't doing it's job to remove stuff, run Sinister Concoction instead, so you can destroy the equipped creature and it's really expensive to equip it again since the equip cost becomes 3. I'm not too fond of it for a Vampire deck, but that equip is really nasty in a Werewolf Tribal deck, where everything flips.

tardaniele: Hello! Glad you enjoy playing it. I'll give you my opinion on the cards you've mentioned.
Call the Bloodline: I love this as well, it has a lot of synergy with the deck. I used to run it in earlier versions but since I was playing Modern when I first built the deck, it was just too slow. I don't like removing Key to the City though, because when I play, I just dump the hand so fast and recurring card draw is just essential for this deck. But again that's my opinion.
Twins of Maurer Estate: This is just too awesome for the deck as well. The reason I was using Gifted Aetherborn instead is the lack of life-gain in the current deck, and he is a really good target for removal when you don't want your other important vampires being targeted. Should work exceptionally well with Call the Bloodline, as you mentioned, for those lifelink guys to help you out.
Doomfall: I loved this suggestion! I'll probably end up buying a set of four to test it out. It has no drawback in any time of the game, different from Lay Bare the Heart, which can be useless when your opponent is on top-deck mode. The only advantage this card has is the lower cmc cost, which is great for the consistency of opening hands and grabbing the information of your opponent's hand. I actually was running only 4 removals on the FNM (Grasp of Darkness) so I decided to include 4 more to have 8 total in the deck, and Doomfall seems like a great choice too.
Faith of the Devoted: This card seems pretty bad, I know, 3 cmc and no tempo at all. I just thought it would be a great inclusion to have more life gain to endure more on the game and to finish off games where you can't really hit with creatures (gotta hate that Torrential Gearhulk deck). You might be right in removing it for your version.
I have something I want you to consider when playing: your options when you're on topdeck mode. What are the discard choices when a unwanted Swamp pops up? You have Call the Bloodline, Stromkirk Condemned, Key to the City and Heir of Falkenrath Flip. Depending on the board state, Faith of the Devoted can really come in handy to help you finish a game off. I'd probably always choose Key because more draw, is more discard triggers you can do per turn (that is considering you got rekt by a board clear lol - man I'm really traumatized by that Torrential Gearhulk deck).
