It's not a bad list at all, but if you want to go with vampires plus lifegain subtheme there are better choices of commanders (Astarion, the Decadent, Amalia Benavides Aguirre, Vona, Butcher of Magan, Elenda, the Dusk Rose, and Carmen, Cruel Skymarcher are solid options. There are tons of other good options too).

If you're heart-set on Athreos, I would drop the vampire/lifegain themes and go with creatures that have sac effects (e.g. Westfold Rider, Cathar Commando, Bounty Agent, Priest of Fell Rites, Stronghold Assassin, Necrotic Sliver, Burnished Hart, Dauthi Voidwalker) plus cards with reanimation abilities (e.g. Bishop of Rebirth, Celestine, the Living Saint, Custodi Soulcaller, Redemption Choir, Sun Titan, Carmen, Cruel Skymarcher, Athreos, Shroud-Veiled, Breathkeeper Seraph, Court of Ardenvale, Gift of Immortality).

While I'm working on upgrading my own orzhov vampire deck, which drew me to your deck in particular, I do recommend Astarion, the Decadent and perhaps Sengir, the Dark Baron. In particular, Astarion, the Decadent can just outright kill someone if combined with Revival / Revenge, opponent loses half their rounded life, Astarion's endstep triggers and the opponent can lose the other half. Sengir, the Dark Baron also nets you your opponent's life when they die.

Since this is also a lifesteal deck, I reccomend Aetherflux Reservoir.

Heartless Hidetsugu is a great choice. To pitch some other ideas, Isshin, Two Heavens as One (not really underrated, but versatile and budget-friendly), Kaervek the Merciless, Astarion, the Decadent, and Riku of Two Reflections (not underrated, but fun and because I'm only suggesting cards so far). You know what you want, though, so no hard feelings if these aren't what you're looking for.

This deck looks like it might be legal in Legacy or Vintage. I would try those. The illegal card is Astarion, the Decadent, which has only ever been printed in a Commander set, which are not allowed in Modern. I think they might be in Legacy and Vintage, though.
