Back to the original ban talk, for the pro tour they’ve listed the total number of cards being run in the tourney, with the One Ring being top-dog.
Numbers are (total/main/side):
The One Ring: 450/415/35
Orcish Bowmasters: 413/406/7
Chalice of the Void: 355/2/353
Misty Rainforest: 328/328/0
Force of Negation: 302/276/26
Boseiju, Who Endures: 287/172/115
Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer: 270/266/4
Leyline Binding: 258/258/0
Flooded Strand: 255/255/0
Lightning Bolt: 253/248/5
Bloodstained Mire: 236/236/0
These stats surely don’t help the Rings odds of staying legal.

All suggestions are mono black vampires and fit more of an aristocrats build.
Lords - Captivating Vampire buffs the squad and gives the ability of stealing an opponent’s creature
Vampire Nocturnus buffs the squad, gives evasion and since you’re mono black can play with the top of your library visible
1 drops - Knight of the Ebon Legion is the best 1 drop vamp imo. Can buff itself, gains permanent buffs and doubles as removal mid-late game
Viscera Seer a great sac target and let’s you scry 1
Vampire Cutthroat has skulk and lifelink
Vampire Lacerator a 2/2 for 1, you take one damage unless your opponent has 10 or less life
Indulgent Aristocrat a decent buffer with a sac engine
Guul Draz Vampire gains a buff if the opponent has 10 or less life
Pulse Tracker opponent takes 1 damage when it attacks
2 drops - Cordial Vampire not a lord in name, but has that buffing ability and triggers when ANYTHING dies. Buffs the team more efficiently than any lord imo.
Bloodghast a vital piece imo, it can’t block, but comes back when you play a land
Blood Artist a key piece for an aristocrat build, combos great with cordial and Vito
Asylum Visitor for card draw and the ability to come back
Kalastria Highborn great addition for a drain and gain/aristocrat build
Vraan, Executioner Thane combos great with Vito
Stromkirk Condemned can buff the team for a turn
Vampire Hexmage great sideboard piece for dealing with counters
Gifted Aetherborn might be favorite vampire, but doesn’t fit an aristocrat build
Silversmote Ghoul is a perfect target for Sorin’s second ability and comes back at the end of your end step
Vampire Nighthawk one of the best vampires imo, has evasion, deathtouch and lifelink, but doesn’t fit the aristocrat build
Nighthawk Scavenger a vampire goyf
Drana, Liberator of Malakir has evasion, first strike and buffs attacking creatures
Lands - Cavern of Souls an absolute MUST for any tribal build
Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth flips things to swamps
Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is great for all devotion the build will have
Castle Locthwain for card draw later

Nice little build, ignore any suggestions that are not budget friendly, giving everything I can think of. Increase Sorin to 4, he’s very powerful and gets hate quick. 2 Vito should be fine. 4 Cordial Vampire, his ability is universal, not just your creatures dying. 2 Silversmote Ghoul work extremely well with Sorin’s second ability and comes back. 2 Vraan, Executioner Thane works great with Vito. Knight of the Ebon Legion is pump-able and doubles as a removal spell in the late game. Blood Artist combo’s well with cordial and several others. If you’re looking for a lord, Captivating Vampire is great with a decent second ability. Bloodghast is nice and comes back. 4 locthwain is perfect. 2 Cavern of Souls for tribal and protection. Fetches thin out your deck, Prismatic Vista works since this is mono colored. Verdant Catacombs, Polluted Delta, Marsh Flats & or Bloodstained Mire work too.

I actually really like the inclusion of 4 Voidwalkers since it gives the undying cards another target besides Grief, especially since one voidwalker can cast cards exiled with a different Voidwalker (or its past dead self).
Having so many fetches in mono B for deck thinning is probably not necessary imo. I would probably put like 2-3 Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth along with 3-4 Urza's Saga. Urborg also goes pretty well with a couple horizon lands like Silent Clearing. Force of Despair is a cool card that a lot of 8rack players were excited to test out when it got spoiled, personally I don't think running 3 copies is a great idea in a deck already pitching cards to Grief but you could maybe run 3 combined between mainboard and sideboard.
Path of Peril is a really funny boardwipe since a) you can sack your Dauthi anyways and b) it doesn't hit Grief. Obviously some antisynergy with Saga but its probably fine if you sequence plays correctly.
This is definitely a deck where I would put some copies of Surgical Extraction in the sideboard.
20 lands is probably on the low side, although you aren't running any Raven's Crime. Need testing for that one.
The tweaks I'd make before playtesting would probably be:
Reasoning: with Saga, you can cut on Afflictions since you can tutor racks more consistently, Needle and Spellbomb are just mainboard saga target staples, and then some other removal to replace Force of Despair. Funeral Charm can let a big construct through with Urborg. What removal you choose to run is probably meta dependent.
This is definitely a lot more meta dependent so I can't comment as much.
Go Blank is decent grave hate but can be replaced with extra Nihil Spellbomb or 4 Leyline of the Void, personal preference. Also good to note that Go Blank can sometimes be too slow (vs grinding breach) and also doesn't shut down some decks as effectively as leyline like Murktide, Scam, Grinding Station, Yawgmoth, Living End, etc while Leyline stops all of those in their tracks.
You can also move the Spellbomb + Needle package to the sideboard if you think mainboard is too crowded with the scam package.

Depending on your budget, I'd definitely include 2 Cavern of Souls, 2 Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx for all that devotion and 2-3 Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and a playset of fetchlands, either Prismatic Vista, Marsh Flats, Verdant Catacombs, Polluted Delta or Bloodstained Mire to help thin out your deck. Including a sac outlet for Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord (3-4 of) is great for cheating out vampires, works as a Lightning Helix type and buffs. Cordial Vampire (playset) acts as a lord and buffs the team when ANY creature dies. If fetches are included, I'd recommend a playset of Bloodghast, it can be used as a sac target for sorin, buffs the team because of cordial and comes back after playing a land. Silversmote Ghoul is another good sac outlet that can easily come back if enough life is gained and can be used for card draw. Viscera Seer is a good one drop that can be sac'd to scry and help buff the team with cordial. Knight of the Ebon Legion is an underrated one drop that becomes removal later in the game and buffs up easily. Blood Artist is good for a drain & gain build, as is Kalastria Highborn, she can help with the drain and gain. exquisite blood is a little slow for modern imo. I hope some of that helps, good luck.

Have you ever considered Wizard's Lightning? 10 out of the 12 creatures you're running are wizards anyway and I imagine Bolt > Snap > Bolt is a very common line of play to finish a game with this deck?
Also, I'm curious about the inclusion of Blood Crypt here. If you want to be able to Archmage's Charm by turn 3, wouldn't it be easier to run another Steam Vents and another Watery Grave instead? Especially if you swap out the Bloodstained Mires for Polluted Deltas.
Really love the list, Faeries are a tribe I've been wanting to be good again for a long time.

Hey lhetrick13 thanks for the suggestions! For some reason I was using the same lands I had for my old paper abzan list, so I swapped the caves out for two Marsh Flats and the Bloodstained Mire out for a Boseiju, Who Endures which I've been itching to try. Thanks!
