Peat Bog can help you putting some rats earlier. 2 Barren Moor will avoid some floods. And 1-2 Bojuka Bog against tron or any deck that use the grave. Cast Down in the Victim of Night slots and Chainer's Edict in the Diabolic Edict. Maybe 4 Sign in Blood and 19 Relentless Rats, but i'm not sure about it.

I think some extra lands would really help out. MBC sort of relies on casting things, and playing a land each turn for the first few turns at least. In my variant I run 24 lands, but 22-24 is the typical. I also run Barren Moor, which is nice for obvious reasons, even if it is a tapland.
Thrill-Kill Assassin seems okay, but doesn't really fit the strategy of the archetype, do maybe switch that out for lands or something? Dark Ritual seems pretty meh, since it's more of a fast ramp card for a fast kill deck, but MBC is a slow drawn out control deck.
I also find that Tendrils of Corruption is insanely good in MBC. Helps against any type of aggro deck, really, since gaining 5 life is potentially 1-2 more turns being alive, which can be the difference between winning and losing

Hey, nice job on this!
You may have already seen it but Feast of Blood would be a good card to consider swapping out for either Murder or Sorin's Thirst. It will combo with Aerialist. It´s not instant, but if you're going aggro, waiting to maybe play an instant as a combat trick or answer won't help you. That's more of a ¨control¨ kind of play. From my playtests it doesn't seem like this deck has any problem keeping at least two vampires on the field, so it shouldn't be hard to cast.
Drana is sweet, but since she is legendary, maybe consider less copies? I typically do 2 copies of a single legendary card. That way you don't run the risk of having some dead cards in hand.
As you feel out the curve (and price) of this deck, consider Phyrexian Arena. a 3 drop draw engine will help with speed and the deck will mitigate the 1 life loss easily!
The deck currently is lacking a game-ending play. Low card cost does help with speed, but CMC correlates to card power. 4-5 drops just have more power than 1-2 drops. So adding a few more higher cost cards will really go a long way. I've seen Vampire Nocturnus do some nasty work with a field of vampires.
And look into some nonbasic lands! It helps to have a diverse land selection. Rogue's Passage comes to mind, Zhalfirin Void helps with scry. Barren Moor allows you to cycle in a pinch. Having activated abilities gives you versatility. That's another balancing act, like the mana curve. Those are some suggestions, but check out the site ¨managathering¨ for more lands. Hope this helps!

It really does depend on your deck, Bojuka Bog and Dryad Arbor are seriously competitive cards, and The Gitrog Monster does turn Barren Moor into Ancestral Recall-lite. The most competitive decks will want to play on (or ahead of) curve, but that doesn't mean it invalidates every land that enters the battlefield tapped.
On top of that, commander is the last format that I don't have to play competitively, so I do tend to resist statements that tell me my playstyle is garbage 0:)
One of my favourite things to see in a game of commander, my Thalia, Heretic Cathar turning your ABUR duals into simple guildgates anyway >:)

Needs more Nightsky Mimic IMHO. And if you get a couple of those, probably you'd like to change a couple Journey to Nowhere or Syphon Life for Pillory of the Sleepless, and Gift of Orzhova to top you curve. Also you're not playing any source of card advantage, maybe you can take a couple 2 cmc critters out for Night's Whisper, or at least a couple cycling lands, like Barren Moor.
