Great concept! Looking to build a casual vampire tribal deck myself. I found 20 lands to be on the low side for this deck when play testing, but I suppose that depends on how loose your mulligan rules are within your playgroup. Vampire Nighthawk has long been a favorite of mine, but you might look into Nighthawk Scavenger instead. You might consider Thoughtseize in lieu of a few removal spells to help protect against board wipes. Food for thought for other possible inclusions: Indulgent Aristocrat pairs nicely with Bloodghast. Blood Artist is always a favorite in vamp decks. Hope this helps!

DarkKiridon thank you for the suggestions. I really wish Stromkirk Captain was Pioneer legal as he is an old favorite of mine. I definitely plan to add Fatal Push to my deck in place of Fake Your Own Death. I am going to keep looking at what vampire to swap my Sanguinary Mage for as it just recently replaced Furyblade Vampire. I am considering Child of Night (old fav) or Vampire of the Dire Moon or Vampire Cutthroat or Indulgent Aristocrat. Sanguinary mage isn't the right fit though. I am also considering Falkenrath Perforator as it is a more guaranteed way to ensure my opponent takes damage so I can trigger Vampire Socialite when I play vampires in my 2nd main phase. The lifelink will help ensure my opponent a quick life drain from Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose.

Indulgent Aristocrat is missing the Noble subtype.

Looking better, more trimmed. If you want to pursue the tokens method you could use more cards that create tokens, such as Edgar, Charmed Groom  Flip, Elenda, the Dusk Rose, Legion's Landing  Flip, Martyr of Dusk, Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle and Queen's Commission. You will need creatures to support you earlier in the game, and Vampire of the Dire Moon, Gifted Aetherborn, Legion Lieutenant, Cordial Vampire and Indulgent Aristocrat are looking good for that role.

Keep upgrading!

You probably want to add a ton of 1 drops to this, a few you might try out are Falkenrath Gorger, Falkenrath Pit Fighter, and Indulgent Aristocrat. There are also options like Vampire of the Dire Moon and Knight of the Ebon Legion that are probably better but cost more. I think running less than 8 spells that are good turn 1 plays is going to put you behind every game, Modern is a pretty aggressive format in most areas.

People do sometimes run 4 drops in Modern, and rarely higher MV stuff, but 6 drops are a lot of mana, and half the opponent's life might not matter enough if you play it late (half of 10 is a lot smaller of an effect than half of 20), so I feel like you shouldn't run more than x1 Blood Tribute, if any.

If you're very 'all in' on aggro, I feel like Curse of Stalked Prey will feel more playable than Curse of Shaken Faith, those +1/+1 counters add up quickly, while later game people are less likely to double spell. I could see Shaken Faith showing up in a sideboard, but it seems like a strange card in the main deck.

I'm not sure if I'm missing something, but Balustrade Spy seems like a terrible card in here, do you have some synergies with self-mill, or are you hopping to force your opponent to draw lands maybe? I think there are better cards than this. If you have enough life gain effects you could try either/or Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose or Marauding Blight-Priest, either is pretty unpleasant if you've got a bunch of lifelink vampires (Gifted Aetherborn and Vampire Cutthroat are 2 more that are solid, though Vito can give your board Lifelink by himself fwiw).

I'm not very experienced with Modern, but I think there are a few pointers that I can give you.

Your curve should be more to the left, most Modern decks run plenty of 1 drops, Black Vampires have Vampire of the Dire Moon, Indulgent Aristocrat, Pulse Tracker, Vampire Cutthroat, Knight of the Ebon Legion, and Vicious Conquistador, some budget and some not. Red has Voldaren Stinger, Falkenrath Pit Fighter and Falkenrath Gorger, those last two play together pretty well and are quite exploitable, there are some other vampires that care about discard effects. I think those are all Modern legal, maybe something will work for you!

As a general rule, if you almost always want at least 1 copy of a card in your opening hand then it should probably be a run at x4. Most people try to run quite a few x4s of key cards, this tends to make a deck quite a bit stronger. You can certainly run less copies of a card, x3 is for stuff you really want but don't necessarally want 2 copies of, 2 seems right for stuff you are fine with not drawing every game, but would like to draw in longer games (bigger creatures/spells are often 2 ofs), people often use singleton copies of cards that they usually don't want to draw or never want to see in their opening hand. There is a fair bit of artistry to getting the ratios of cards 'just right', so I hope some of those tips are useful. I think Good Morning Magic (a Magic Youtube channel) had a video on how to know how many of a card to put in a deck, the guy behind the channel is one of Magic's designers. I can't properly link, but https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9FpF1SpOTJk is the vid.

I had a vampire deck for awhile, it was Legacy and ran a x4s of Vampire of the Dire Moon, Gifted Aetherborn, Vampire Nighthawk and Gatekeeper of Malakir, these offered some pretty good board control. I'm not sure if you have enough board interaction effects, there are also endless Black spells that remove creatures. There is also Nighthawk Scavenger, which is probably better than the old Nighthawk. This might tie into my other thought, your deck would probably be stronger if you leaned harder into a specific typal theme, there are a few Zombies and other types in here. If you do lean into just Vampires or just Zombies there are quite a few fairly strong cards that really care about those types, these can make good finishers, stuff like Bloodline Keeper  Flip can quickly take over a game.

A final point, most decks really want more cards. You might not want to buy x2 or x3 of The One Ring, but Phyrexian Arena is an old standby, it's much better in a Vampire deck because you can recover via lifelink. There are also cards like Sign in Blood and Night's Whisper.

Not sure how competitive you're aiming to make this, but Vampire of the Dire Moon is a solid Vampire. Caves of Koilos is a playable dual I think (and I think it's affordable), Isolated Chapel is another that's a bit more. I get that Sign in Blood is a bit harder to cast than Painful Lesson, but there is also Night's Whisper. Also, most Legacy decks end up around 60 cards (with the possibility of up to 15 Sideboard cards, which you can switch in after the first game). For 60 cards, 23 lands is probably reasonable for a deck that has 5 drops (you have Dark Ritual to help), but for 74 you would want more lands than that.

Not sure if it's actually 'good', but Indulgent Aristocrat also exists, and it even has Lifelink.
