No Davriel, Rogue Shadowmage ? It provides solid damage and discard.

I did a gatherer search for black and blue cards that deal damage during each upkeep, and the results are interesting: Most of them dealt with hand size.
- Black Vise
- Ebony Owl Netsuke
- Iron Maiden
- Mask of Intolerance
- Misers' Cage
- Paupers' Cage
- The Rack
- Blood Clock
- Wheel of Torture
- Dark Suspicions
- Davriel, Rogue Shadowmage
- Price of Knowledge
- Stabwhisker the Odious
- Quest for the Nihil Stone
- Shrieking Affliction
There are only 2 unconditional damage artifacts:
And there were two other outliers:

I would recommend you add one or two more Davriel, Rogue Shadowmage . It doesn't look like it, but it's really powerful because it also makes opponents discard cards with its loyalty ability.

basically every 8-rack deck runs Delirium Skeins in their sideboard which works nicely when the opponent has Leyline of Sanctity but i currently dont need it and im currently not concerned about sideboard either. i need to make sideboards for my other decks, too.. but anyways, i mostly play against my friends and this deck should do fine against their's without a sideboard.
i think 10 Rack effects is enough, i dont need more Davriel, Rogue Shadowmage s. but i'll keep an open mind for the possibility.
Sign in Blood would be nice as top deck wars is unfavorable for 8-rack, but i'll play few matches against my friends and see what i can take off and if i need card drawing.
Waste Not is a fun card and i'll probably get a playset later and put it into a-so-called-sideboard as it could work in multiplayer games nicely. in a normal 1v1 its not really doing much. though, the card draw would be nice

I've played a lot of modern vamps. Some of the best options are dirt cheap, so it makes for a great budget list to take to FNM. Most of the time I've been in mono black, but splashing for lietennant is fairly low-cost and low-risk for a great card.
For this list, Vampire of the Dire Moon , Vampire Cutthroat , Indulgent Aristocrat will do an amazing job filling out the one-drop slots. They are the 'best' budget setup I've found- great burn matchup and evasion/great deathtouch trades into bigger threats. They also play nice with Lashwrithe and Blade of the Bloodchief .
If your budget is tight enought that filling out with $1 1 drops seems rough, look at Guul Draz Vampire , Shadow Alley Denizen and Pulse Tracker alongside Stromkirk Condemned , Urge to Feed and direct damage like Gonti's Machinations and Bump in the Night . Playing a lot of 1 mana creatures that get pumped is really good, and evasion like intimidate makes something like mono-red burn but with hand disruption.
Two mana stronger options is Legion Lieutenant and Cordial Vampire (you can run Stromkirk Condemned , Dusk Legion Zealot or Cruel Celebrant ), and three is Vampire Nighthawk and Bloodthirsty Aerialist since you have them and want those slots for budget removal/carddraw. Gifted Aetherborn deserves a mention as it used to be cheap, but dire moon is frankly better and in print.
Next we come to the thing that makes budget mono-black king of the budget lists- cheap, effective spells. Sign in Blood is playable card-draw. Underworld Connections while far, far worse than Phyrexian Arena , and worse than bob still performs admirably. Delirium Skeins & Mind Rake devastates control players. Duress successfully hates out combo players. Standard cards like Mire's Toll & Drill Bit perform miracles. Cards like Flaying Tendrils can play at being one-sided boardwipes, and your sideboard has access to all manner of oddball cards that had too many copies to get expensive for modern- from Shadowfeed to Davriel, Rogue Shadowmage .
Grab some playtest tools and muck about- you will find a great deck within your budget that you can muck about with to perform well in your local meta.
