Lot of my suggestions are leaning into tokens because Blood Avatar clearly wants that, and if i can find a spell that makes tokens than Extus will be happy too. Thats my idea.
Big Score, Unexpected Windfall, Blood for Bones, Rakdos Charm, Fiery Confluence, Crackle with Power, Storm King's Thunder, Bonus Round, Sram's Expertise, Electrodominance, Jaya Ballard, Liliana, Dreadhorde General, Elspeth, Sun's Champion, Assemble the Legion, Secure the Wastes, Call the Coppercoats, Fury Storm, Ashnod's Altar, Prosperous Partnership, Divine Visitation
Let's take a short break here, because you need better creatures. Creatures that have VALUE as you recast them over and over, maybe even discard outlets. I hate to say it (and i'm not going to list them) but Aristocrat creatures are ideal here because they are cheap, and gain life which can then be used to cast wild stuff like Bolas's Citadel.
Dragonmaster Outcast, Viscera Seer, Cathar Commando, Leonin Relic-Warder, Mondrak, Glory Dominus, Lagomos, Hand of Hatred, Pitiless Plunderer, Mahadi, Emporium Master, Woe Strider, Ophiomancer, Mayhem Devil, Children of Korlis, Insolent Neonate, Elenda, the Dusk Rose, Sengir Autocrat, Syr Konrad, the Grim, Sun Titan
Also if this just ins't the direction you wanna go thats ight

Interesting tight build. The power of Labyrinth Raptor is evident.
One potential addition could be Insolent Neonate this could keep in theme but also dig you through your deck.
Finally Rampaging Ferocidon is just a powerful creature with menace.

Lietenant looks nice on paper at a glance, but tbh I feel like he's for vamps with a very low, fast curve, and imo at least 8 turn 1 creatures.
Reasons to play Orzhov would also include Edgar, Charmed Groom Flip, Blood Baron of Vizkopa, Adanto Vanguard and Welcoming Vampire. Edgar is the same base effect as Lietenant for twice the mana but Edgar has a much better body, being out of bolt range immediately and immune to Vanishing Verse, and even if he eats a Push or Unholy Heat he doesn't STAY gone. White also gives you access to some of the best sideboard cards ever made including things like Stony Silence and Rest in Peace.
Reasons to play Rakdos are numerous. Stromkirk Noble, Stromkirk Captain, Olivia Voldaren, Insolent Neonate, Falkenrath Pit Fighter, and from the non-creature side, Lightning Bolt, Terminate, Dreadbore, and a whole host of sideboard options like Rakdos Charm, Abrade, Shatterstorm, Boil, and so on.

I'm also trying to make a deck of that kind, and I have some ideas for the sideboard :
I don't see many cards that you would absolutely want to side out, except your 10 instants against bogles, so your sideboard should have creature destructions that handle hexproof : lightning bolt and dark withering can be swapped for more diabolic edicts/chainer's edicts, Fleshbag Marauder can integrate your toolbox and Crypt rats too. I prefer Electrickery to Nausea as it can be played at instant speed.
Tortured Existence lets you play some maindeck toolbox too and have one of some cards that can be maindecked in madness too : 1 Gurmag Angler for instance, 1 Insolent Neonate is not a toolbox card, but can still be maindecked and give more options
2021 saw MH2 give 5 new madness cards, namely Kitchen Imp and VOW introduced blood tokens as a new way to discard, 14 card in the right colors, but only Voldaren Epicure caught my attention, Blood Fountain has its uses but is too slow here.

Good List, I would recommend playing less tap-lands as in a deck like this, playing a turn 1 discard outlet is crucial to be fast. In an aggro deck, being stranded with 3+ tap-lands can leave you dead in the water. I see your point of Bloodmad Vampire Being bad because of one toughness, however it is one of the best madness creatures simply becuase it is such a threat to the board. For an example, if you play a Putrid Imp or a Insolent Neonate turn 1, an end-of-turn Bloodmad Vampire on turn 2 can really force an opponent's hand. I find that in your list, especially in playtesting, there is too many discard outlets and not enough beaters. Having more than 1 Putrid Imp or Cabal Initiate in play can feel like a waste that could be a Skophos Reaver or a Bloodmad Vampire.

Very good list if you can check out my list A Vampire Storm *Primer*, and let me know what you think.
For your discussion of the new Cards from what came out in the Midnight Hunt, I think that Vampire Socialite is basically just a two mana vampire lord which is very good and especially ideal for an aggro deck. Voldaren Ambusher is great and maybe even the all-star of the set as normally you don't want to play removal in Edgar Markov because it hurts the deck's momentum but this lets you have creature removal, and tempo. Falkenrath Pit Fighter has rather good stats and a good-enough ability for a 1 drop.
As for the new cards, I will just discuss the ones that seem worth that time. Voldaren Estate looks like a no-brainer include as it gives all colors of mana in addition to card cycling which is nice. Dominating Vampire looks pretty sweet for aggressive tempo and is also removal if you have a sac outlet which is not too difficult for vampires. Voldaren Bloodcaster looks like a pretty decent card overall, and am interesting to see how it actually plays. The new Olivia could be pretty good value, overall a decent option for inclusion. Bloodtithe Harvester seems not quite as good as Voldaren Ambusher, but still nice to see more removal vampires but the 3/2 statline is pretty nice for 2 mana. Lastly, the new Edgar, Charmed Groom is a bit underwhelming but overall a pretty decent card
As for your deck, it looks good just would make a few minor tweaks in card choices for the aggro deck, but overall the deck looks to have very good synergy for the most part and cohesion towards its goal as an aggro deck. Phyrexian Arena is a slow card advantage engine that is more suited towards midrange Edgar Markov decks. Nighthawk Scavenger is pretty much a strict upgrade over Vampire Nighthawk as just having an opponent crack a fetch land means that Nighthawk Scavenger is just as good with even more potential upside. Bloodhusk Ritualist has an ok multikicker effect but the main issue is the atrocious statline of a 2/2 for three mana. Universal Automaton is just a 1/1 for 1 so pretty much any 1 drop vampire is an improvement, ie Viscera Seer Insolent Neonate, Stromkirk Noble. Also your deck noticeably has no removal which I agree for the most part with the sentiment but would strongly recommend at least 1 card for mass enchantment removal, as one of the biggest weaknesses of an aggro Edgar Markov deck is enchantress decks with propaganda type effects so it is very valuable to have those effects if you need them. Lastly just want to throw in Stromkirk Condemned as a vampire lord that is decent.

If you're looking for further advice still, here's my list of best 1 mana vampires:
More niche 1-drops include
Skymarcher Aspirant really only if you wanna be hyper aggressive and run like 8-12 lords.
If you want my opinion on the best vampires in MtG in no particular order:
Champion of Dusk (because Sorin's a thing, before 5 mana was really pushing it)
and a narrow niche that makes him the best vampire in the game but ONLY in manaless dredge: Balustrade Spy

If I'm seeing this right, you're trying to get Deathbonnet Sprout Flip transformed quickly, and Heirloom Mirror Flip is the primary way to do that. Once that's done, you want to use Orcus, Prince of Undeath to bring back the low-cost creatures that flipped Sprout.
T1 Deathbonnet Sprout, T2 Insolent Neonate, sacrifice Neonate and discard Greater Mossdog, then dredge Mossdog back to your hand instead of drawing. You now have five cards in your graveyard, so if you have a high enough concentration of creatures, there's a good chance you can transform Sprout on turn 2.
