Shared Animosity and Reconnaissance are 2 really good finishers in Mardu aggro. Cover of Darkness is also really good in the right meta.

The deck looks like it needs more card draw. Consider Necropotence and Greed . Oversold Cemetery is essentially selective draw from your grave but again meta dependent.

You might want more ramp. Fellwar Stone , Orzhov Signet , Boros Signet , Rakdos Signet , Talisman of Indulgence , Talisman of Hierarchy , and Talisman of Conviction are your best options that don't cost an arm and a leg.

Thanks for the feedback Ravenrose!!!

Homicidal Seclusion is nice, but I often see myself with a bunch of skeletons on the battlefield as nobody cares to kill them. So I use them to block as I try to kill people with Skittles. I'm running a bunch of tribal and color anthems to try and fasten the clock. If this was a SERIOUS Skittles deck I would run it for sure tho!

Champion of Stray Souls is nice and on theme but unfortunately very overcosted!

Haunting Wind and Oversold Cemetery are cool, maybe I'll go after them!

Homicidal Seclusion can be fun in this deck. Champion of Stray Souls could also be considered for this deck. Haunting Wind could also be a fun addition. Oversold Cemetery is fun too!

I hope these help!

Change Notes:

Out: Bishop of Rebirth
In: Oversold Cemetery
Oversold Cemetery is way cheaper to cast then Bishop of Rebirth . It doesn't need as much conditions to be met, aswell.

Out: Butcher of Malakir
In: Purphoros, God of the Forge
Included another win condition with Purphoros, God of the Forge in exchange for a really expensive vampire which doesn't help the most important part of the deck.

Out: Fetid Heath
In: Fellwar Stone
Since the mana curve was lowered, one land can be cut for another piece of ramp.

Out: Kalastria Highborn
In: Gifted Aetherborn
Swaped out one vampire for another stronger one with important keywords.

Out: Bloodlord of Vaasgoth
In: Knight of the Ebon Legion
Changed another costly vampire for a cheaper one with strong upsides.

Out: Mathas, Fiend Seeker
In: Erebos, God of the Dead
Use life as a reassource with Erebos, God of the Dead , it's also way less specific then Mathas, Fiend Seeker 's effect.

Out: Bloodtracker
In: Expedition Map
Took out a costly vampire which has a specific effect for another piece of ramp, which is especially great for some of the utility lands (e.g. Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth & Cabal Coffers ).

Out: Kindred Dominance
In: Vampire of the Dire Moon
Included another cheap vampire with strong keywords and took out a expesnive boardwipe.

Out: Sorin, Grim Nemesis
In: Throne of the God-Pharaoh
Swaped an expensive planeswalker for a cheap artifact which can act as a win condition.

Out: Boros Charm
In: Etchings of the Chosen
Swaped out a one time protection for a repeatable one.

Out: Vanquisher's Banner
In: Bolas's Citadel
Bolas's Citadel doesn't draw you cards, but you can even cheat vampires into play from the top of your deck.

Change Notes:

Out: Exquisite Blood
In: Cruel Celebrant
I want to increase my vampire count. Exquisite Blood is really strong, but it's a 5 mana enchantment which does nothing when it hits the board. There are other cards in this deck with the same flaw. But I felt like choosing to cut this one for Cruel Celebrant is the best way to go, since the main purpose of Cruel Celebrant is to drain some life.

Out: Diabolic Intent
In: Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord
Tutors are huge and powerful. But I want to tune this deck a bit down for now. The abilitys of Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord are really strong too, even though it's not tutoring, it helps to pump your vampires and cheat mana.

Out: Oversold Cemetery
In: Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord
I liked Oversold Cemetery 's effect, but it was really situational. Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord can bring creatures back and buff your vampires. That's why I switched them out, since Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord is increasing the value of our vampires.

Oversold Cemetery and Squee, Goblin Nabob could be useful in this deck.

Okay, so after looking at this deck for a while, considering its sideboard, and adding some cards that I use often for similar strategies, I've come up with a list of edits (well, actually three lists).

Before I get to those, I would like to explain what I found. Firstly, I like the idea behind the deck. Token strategies are always a great way to make a casual deck that can scale to be for optimized. I love the afterlife keyword as it lends itself to this optimization really well. But there were several less-than-savory card choices in here. The two biggest issues that I saw are ones that I see a lot (and full into too). The first of these is that many cards have a very high cost-to-value ratio. That is, there were several cards that cost too much (mana) and do too little for it. Elgaud Inquisitor is a fantastic example. While Elgaud Inquisitor is on-theme with their on-death triggered ability, that is all they have going for them. The lifelink isn't super useful, and the CMC is WAY too high. They are only a 2/2 too boot. Second off, theme isn't the same as function. I understand that there is a vorthos element to this deck, but since this deck isn't a full tribal deck, I think it's better to focus on ways to make the good parts of the theme work great.

I saw lots of cards that were life gaining cards ( Pontiff of Blight , Impassioned Orator , Riot Control , etc). This deck can make a lot of tokens which Tesya gives lifelink. You need not worry about life gain card. The strength of your creatures that make tokens when they die is that you can easily recur them in W/B. In the lists below, there are many cards that give added value to dying creature or make killing your creatures more ways to die. Lastly and most importantly, you had ZERO ramp and ALMOST NO card draw. THESE ARE THE TWO MOST FUNDAMENTAL ASSPECTS IN EDH!!! You NEED to have them!!! You can not rely solely on the one land drop and card draw. I've listed several cards that assist the main strategy and draw you cards (things like Dredge and Altar's Reap ). As for ramp, there is almost no good ramp outside of green. That only means that you have to look harder. Mana rocks are a must. I only have three in the lists, but they are absolute must-haves. Next, I put in several cards that give you mana in other ways. Most of them align themselves with the main strategy ( Ashnod's Altar , Soldevi Adnate , and Pawn of Ulamog to name a few). Similarly, I added cards that draw you cards from creatures dying. There is one card that I would like to point out in particular, Erebos . The important part of Erebos is his last ability. You pay and 2 life to draw a card. Life is a resource, and you'll be making plenty of it. Be sure to spend it. There are lots of cards that help you turn life into various things, like Bolas's Citadel (which I almost put in and still think has a place here). I would encourage you to look into them. Lastly, I would remove 6 lands. You have other ramp now and don't want to be flooded all of the time.

Here is the list of cards that I would remove:

I understand that there is a budget to this deck, so I've split my suggestions into two lists. The first is all cards that are cheap and should keep you under budget. The second list of cards is for later edits. If you want to spend more money on this deck, those are the cards that I would recommend buying.

As you're read through these, you might notice that a lot of these came from your sideboard. There are lots of good cards in there.

I hope you enjoy these changes. Just remember that casual decks don't have to be un-optimized.
