Nice deck, seems strong, the only problem I see regards the lands. I would consider adding some of the following cards: Bloodstained Mire , Prismatic Vista , Canyon Slough , Graven Cairns , Blackcleave Cliffs , Foreboding Ruins , Smoldering Marsh , and maybe Sulfurous Springs ! If you find this helpful, please consider upvoting my deck, A Deal With the Devil EDH! Hope this helps, good luck on your deck, and have a nice day!

Nice Deck, Vampires are a good choice for a tribal deck! I only have a few suggestions, but even then they are sort of smaller less important things. First off, add some more tribal cards: Anowon, the Ruin Sage , Patron of the Vein , Rakish Heir , Bloodlord of Vaasgoth , Indulgent Aristocrat , and maybe Blade of the Bloodchief . However, Modern isn't the best tribal format. I would recommend switching your format to Legacy, which would allow the following great vampire cards: Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle , Urza's Incubator , Vanquisher's Banner , Herald's Horn , Sanctum Seeker , Legion Lieutenant , etc. You could also add Bloodstained Mire , Smoldering Marsh , Dragonskull Summit , Canyon Slough , Blackcleave Cliffs , and maybe Foreboding Ruins . But nonetheless, most of these aren't legal in modern (Which is the Format your deck is in as of now) so I would recommend switching. If you find these cards and suggestions helpful, please upvote my deck: A Deal With the Devil EDH. Thanks, hope these help, and have a nice day.

Lands are my favorite part of magic, so I'm quite particular about them. In a grixis deck, I would consider adding the following lands: Watery Grave Blood Crypt Dragonskull Summit Steam Vents Fiery Islet Bloodstained Mire Canyon Slough Graven Cairns Smoldering Marsh Sunken Ruins Drowned Catacomb Polluted Delta Sunken Hollow There are a lot more, maybe just look up "Grixis Lands" (Grixis means Red, Blue, Black) to find some more. In the meantime, I would use the ones above, because in commander life isn't always an issue, rather getting cards out with good lands.

Hey, good start.
Budget ($3 or less each) lands to consider adding to improve the manabase:
- Command Tower : one of the best lands for multicolored decks in Commander.
- Exotic Orchard
- Opal Palace
- Nomad Outpost
- Caves of Koilos
- Battlefield Forge
- Foreboding Ruins
- Concealed Courtyard
- Ash Barrens
- Canyon Slough
- Barren Moor
- Forgotten Cave
- Secluded Steppe
The Cycle lands and Barrens are cards with cycling to power Astral Drift. Since they're lands they don't take up valuable deck spots to include more cycling.
Budget Angels/Demons/Dragons and cards that have good interaction with them to consider adding:
- Restoration Angel : ETB ability, blink Kaalia.
- Dragon Tempest : give your flying creatures haste.
- Eldrazi Displacer : repeatable blink, but not an Angel/Demon/Dragon and requires colorless mana sources from lands or mana rocks.
- Utvara Hellkite : among the best Dragons in Commander.
- Karmic Guide : ETB ability, reanimate Kaalia.
- Magister of Worth : ETB ability, reanimate Kaalia as well as every other creature in your graveyard or destroy all other creatures on the battlefield.
- Angel of Despair : ETB ability, destroy any one permanent.
- Bloodgift Demon : repeatable no mana cost draw at your upkeep.
If making blink a theme because of Kaalia then consider including more strong Angels/Demons/Dragons with good ETB abilities to be able to blink them.
Budget card upgrades to consider:
- Swords to Plowshares > Lightning Bolt
- Generous Gift > Lightning Helix
- Diabolic Tutor > Past in Flames
- Final Parting > Obzedat's Aid
- Animate Dead > Aid the Fallen
- Angelic Renewal > Return from Extinction
- Read the Bones > Ransack the Lab
- Unburial Rites > Blood for Bones
- Commander's Sphere > Darksteel Ingot
- Talisman of Indulgence > Worn Powerstone
- Liliana's Triumph > Diabolic Edict
Other cards to consider cutting:
- Cinder Barrens
- Orzhov Guildgate
- Wind-Scarred Crag
- Myriad Landscape
- Scorch Spitter
- Rakdos Firewheeler
- Scampering Scorcher
- Segovian Angel
- Virtus the Veiled
- Volcanic Dragon
- Zombie Infestation

I feel like the major issue isn't really the secondary win-con, a lot of cEDH decks deal a lot of self-inflicted damage, so having Scapeshift into a bunch of mountains and Valakut can blow an opponent or two out of the water, and the set up of Coralhelm, Valakut, and Storm Cauldron with a 'land into play effect' is quite powerful. It's more of your counter magic and mana base.
What you have in terms of counters isn't terrible, but you could be running a little bit more. My suggestion would be cutting Dispel and a couple of lands for Pyroblast and then just better blue counter magic, such as Pact of Negation , either of the blue forces, and potentially something simple, like Negate.
As for the mana base, just try to work towards slowly upgrading your fetches to eventually having more than just the four fast fetches you have already. Windswept Heath should be the first pickup, and then working towards work towards the Zendikar cycle (Ignoring Marsh Flats as it isn't in your colors), and cut the cards like Evolving Wilds and maybe a basic or two as you go.
Besides that, you shouldn't be running Locus of Rage in cEDH, he's a powerful card in more casual pods, especially as a commander, but 7 mana is a lot in cEDH. Though personally I think you should cut most of the elementals besides Tideforce in favor of cheap mana dorks to accelerate your game-plan even further and an Imperial Recruiter as it grabs Tideforce as well as all your 'land into play' effects.
For the most part though, the deck seems good, not as fast as my own, but with some changes and upgrades to the mana base, you are quite close to a powerful deck.

Hoobynobber7395yes! some budget lands that i would recommend to replace the shocks with are the bfz ally (e.g. Sunken Hollow ) and the amonkhet cycle (e.g. Canyon Slough ) or the tri lands(e.g. Frontier Bivouac ). instead of City of Brass or Mana Confluence i would recommend Gateway Plaza and Rupture Spire . however, casual doesn't have to mean budget, i have the lands, picking them up shocks now while there still cheap(ish)
