Exile target nonland permanent. You lose 3 life.

With your mana curve being so low, 38 lands seems like WAAAAYYYYY too much. I think you can get away with 33. Killing Wave is really good for suicide/aristocrats lists. Serra Ascendant could be really strong. It would also be good to consider removal, since you have some of the best colors for it:
Damn (just noticed you had it but still good to note it should stay)
Damnation (might as well run board wipes)
Westvale Abbey Flip is another good sac outlet, maybe consider some more token generators like the various X token spells like Secure the Wastes and the like to help give more fodder for the large sac outs.

"I don't want to go to heavy into a stax strategy because I think it could be a fun killer."
Mate, you are playing Esper. We are meant to be the villain; embrace it. : )
Also, I would recommend dropping Ajani's Mantra. It takes a card and 2 mana to do what your commander does better for free.
Rhox Faithmender is also a little bit win-more, I think - if you're already gaining life, gaining twice that much life doesn't do that much more for you (unless of course you're playing against heavy creature-based aggro, then disregard this).
Teleportation Circle has exactly 5 cards in your deck it interacts with at all. I'd recommend probably replacing it.

wallisface Updated based on some of your feedback.
Opted out of the counterspell idea. They would also have the issue of requiring keeping cards in hand, which is an issue for Ensnaring Bridge.
I don't want to splash black just for hand disruption. To compensate for that weakness, I went up to a full set of Spellskite to protect against exiles. With Emry and the engineers, I wasn't that worried about destroys, but an Anguished Unmaking would really ruin my day.
As for threat removal, options in UR are a bit limited. I went with a wildcard with Chaos Warp. Permanent removal lets the deck deal with enchantments now, as well as a wider range of creatures than just the Pyrite Spellbomb alone. Of course there is the risk that one problem permanent is replaced by another, but I'll take the gamble. It's not the most mana efficient either, but it does let me stay in 2 colors, reducing the chance of getting mana screwed.

I don't think that Ghostway is very good because it doesnt bring back tokens try Boros Charm instead if you want another board protection spell.
You should definitely cut Blood tribute. I don't think thats a good card at all. You want to win with vampires not sorceries. Patriarch's Bidding is certainly better for this deck.
Jeska's Will is suer weird. I dont think that you really need the red mana and youre in blackso there are better options for card draw. I'd definitely cut that.

I would replace Generous gift with Anguished Unmaking it's exile and loosing 3 life is less of a downside for your deck than giving them a 3/3 blocker. You should definitely think about Patriarch's Bidding that card is really good
Death Pit Offering is absolutely awful you shouldn't be playing that and Gleam of Battle is way to expensive for what it does. You aren't playing enough enchantments for Replenishment to be any good in your deck.

You shouldn't be playing Outpost Siege. You're in black you can play Phyrexian Arena, Necropotence or Black Market Connections instead. They only cost 3 mana and are better. I also would play By Invitation Only. YOu have much better board clears. Maybe check out Cleansing Nova instead. Anguished Unmaking and Vindicate are great removal spells, you could consider them over Chaos Warp and Utter End.
I dont think that Kindred Charge is that great. It's only good when you have a lot of creatures which means that you're already doing very well. You generally want to avoid effects like that. I would recommend Patriarch's Bidding instead. That's just a great card in the late game, great topdeck, fantastic after a board clear. Just less situational than Kindred Charge. It's also one mana cheaper which doesn't hurt.

Another fun combo is Oathsworn Vampire (and it's eminence token) goes infinite with Phyrexian Altar and any effect that drains life. You already have the altar and Blood Artist so that would be easy to include in your deck.
I don't think that Crackling Doom is that great tbh. Single target removal is better than letting your opponents decide what to sac. I would recommend Anguished Unmaking instead.
