Ah, good idea Guk , I don't want to drop loads of money on the Sanguine Bond + Exquisite Blood combo, but maybe the creature route would be cheaper. I'll also look into Bloodchief Ascension but that looks to be a little pricey too. Overall good suggestions.

It may not be a fun way to win, and you may not like infinite combos, but Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose and Exquisite Blood is an infinite life drain combo

Banishing Light is one of my favorite white removal tools. Also, if you're running the Vito lifegain build, Exquisite Blood might be a good option for you.

Sorin Markov should be totally alright. +2 is good, -3 is also good; anti life gain decks and also works well in combination with Sorin's Vengeance, -7 kinda depends on what kind of deck your opponent's are running, but its usually fairly good or even devastating (if any opponent has Necropotence, they just insantly lose to effect like Sorin's -7).
Why not Exquisite Blood? It supports most of your cards and even works without you doing any damage/life lose to any opponent, anyone can do it for you and you get life.

Wow, really in depth comment, what about Sorin Markov? And I cannot recommend Exquisite Blood enough.

I would personally replace:
Prism Ring for Trading Post - Could be very handy artifact in decks like this.
The Immortal Sun for Exquisite Blood - creates infinite loop with Vito and Sanguine Bond, but isnt cheap. I wouldnt bother with The Immortal Sun, unless your playgroup runs a lot of planeswalkers or you struggle with card draw (which shouldnt be a problem in mono-black.
The Haunt of Hightower - I would say you need either more discard or mill effects to get Hightower big.. Doom Whisperer seems to be much more useful.
Tavern Swindler - Its just gamble that doesnt seem to be worthy in a deck, where you can already get a lot of life by other cards. Bastion of Remembrance works as another aristocrat effect (Tortured Existence+Desecrated Tomb+Phyrexian Altar as infinite engine).
Dreadhorde Invasion - You dont use any other Amass effect cards and it takes 6 turns to make a 6/6 zombie with lifelink (which will last only until end of your turn), which is pretty meh. It would be good if you had some sacrifice cards, like Smothering Abomination, Village Rites, Diabolic Intent, etc. I would go for either Twilight Prophet or Bloodline Keeper  Flip. Captivating Vampire could be useful aswell. With Carnival of Souls you could get a bit of ramp, but can backfire really hard, so its kinda risky.
Gifted Aetherborn - is pretty nice drop I guess, but feels kinda weak overall. Kalastria Highborn supports your mostly vampire creatures and can also drain your opponents.
Swiftfoot Boots - unless you want the haste, Whispersilk Cloak seems like a decent option. It cost more to cast and to equip, but makes your creature unblockable.
Drag to the Underworld - should do a good job, Oblivion Strike might be something to consider aswell. Or just Corrupt?

Some more cards that might be useful:
Call the Bloodline - discards useless cards and makes a 1/1 vampire token (once per turn).
Revenge of Ravens - decent defensive enchantment that could fit your lifesteal deck nicely.
Burnished Hart - slow ramp creature. BH also triggers your Dread Presence and Staff of the Death Magus.
Crypt Incursion, Suffer the Past - more graveyard hate and another life gain.
