You mentioned having issues with your mana - is that not having enough lands, or not having the right color lands? With the curve as high as it is, I would recommend adding more ramp in the form of either mana rocks or cards like Land Tax or Archaeomancer's Map. I would also focus on some more high impact and efficient cards to put you in a better position. While Krav and Regna are both powerful cards, you would be in a better position with something like Viscera Seer and Liliana, Dreadhorde General/Lolth, Spider Queen. Skullclamp is one of the most powerful cards you can play in a deck like this. I would also look at removing some cards like Sengir, the Dark Baron in favor of more versatile cards. While Sengir can quickly become big, it doesn't really do much else for your deck in conjunction with your commander.

I have decks for each of the Amonkhet gods (Bontu is the only one that's public), which all have pitiful EDHREC ranks. Like griffstick, I have a Multani, Maro-Sorcerer deck that's one of my favorites.
The commanders themselves may not be rare but the partner combinations of Tormod, the Desecrator/Esior, Wardwing Familiar and Sengir, the Dark Baron/Kediss, Emberclaw Familiar are also pretty low on the EDHREC rankings.
I've kind of been debating building a Jolrael, Empress of Beasts deck. Ramp like a madman, animate like 30 forests at once and swing away!
I love seeing decklists for almost any "rare" commander, though. I've seen more than enough Atraxa, Kenrith and Korvold lists to last me a while.

Hey, nice version with Vamp flavor and good overall gameplay plan.
Seize the Spoils and Unexpected Windfall are nice loot effects because they also make treasure ramp for Olivia. Viscera Seer and Falkenrath Aristocrat can be helpful Vamps as a sac outlets that can protect your Vamps from being exiled when you longer control a legendary Vamp. Falkenrath with flying is Vamp to reanimate with Olivia. In response to your last legendary Vamp being removed sac all your Vamps putting them into your graveyard to avoid being exiled to then be reanimated by Olivia. A Vamp sac outlet also combos with Olivia + Port Razer for infinite attacks.
A sac outlet with Butcher of Malakir can wreck your opponents creatures since she triggers whenever she dies or any other creature you control dies. To keep reanimating her with Olivia and Butcher is an excellent Vamp to want to reanimate having flying and 5/4 p/t.
Chaos Warp and Feed the Swarm are important removal spells in Rakdos because they can removal an enchantment especially Ghostly Prison/Propaganda effects that will bring your game plan to a halt. I know you're going for Vamp flavor, but you might want some support creatures for repeatable effects since Olivia can reanimate them. Meteor Golem can destroy any nonland permanent. Vile Entomber can be a repeatable Entomb since Olivia can reanimate it.
If interested in any of these suggestions then here's some cards to consider cutting: Pillar of Origins, Profane Command, Sengir, the Dark Baron, Vein Drinker, Arterial Alchemy, Henrika Domnathi Flip, Markov Enforcer, Sinister Waltz.
Good luck with your deck.

Love the idea and what you've done with this! All of the thoughts I've seen have been either Chevill, Bane of Monsters as Geralt thus Golgari which limits you in terms of colors, or 5-color something as a catch-all. This is very interesting and as I said, I love what you've done with it.
I am not in love with your Dijkstra pick but understand that he is probably ideally Dimir which is not possible. That being said, I do definitely think of him more from the books as someone who somehow knows everything and is involved, more like a spy than a stereotypical government official, though all of his work is for Redania and not exactly personal gain.
I also don't love your Regis pick, I think he has a lot more to him than the thoughtful partier, Yahenni. Especially since Yahenni is really doing what he is doing to extend his life, though he has and had some conflicting thoughts about what he does and must do. I am not sure if there is a reluctant vampire card, it kind of goes against the whole idea of being a vampire, but that is Regis to a certain extent. Something I found that is not legendary is Oathsworn Vampire, which works well with Mathas in terms of gaining life. It also works well in terms of flavor as Regis does not drink blood because of the oath he swore to himself, and he was believed to be dead for a while. Another option is Arvad the Cursed due to how his lack of blood-drinking is a pseudo-curse as it makes him weaker and suffer.
Orianna could definitely be one of the Olivias: Olivia Voldaren or Olivia, Mobilized for War (not so much Olivia, Crimson Bride). The red hair and being a vampire is very fitting, especially that they both party and run those parties.
Detlaff could be Sengir, the Dark Baron; he likes and benefits when things die and when people fail. Transformed Detlaff does look a bit more like The Haunt of Hightower but I know you are already thinking of that.
All in all, thank you for this!! Sorry for the long and late message, just got into Witcher in the past year-ish :).

Sarulf, Realm Eater could be some sort of voltron thing as he gets counters whenever opponents permanents get put in the graveyard (which tokens do). The partner commander Sengir, the Dark Baron does something similar and could be paired with something like Prava of the Steel Legion to double down on the token theme.
Kardur, Doomscourge, Thantis, the Warweaver and the partner pairing of Kamber, the Plunderer/Laurine, the Diversion are all about giving creatures to opponents and benefitting from them dying or attacking someone else. Akroan Horse and Genesis Chamber are more examples of giving other players ammunition. Syr Konrad, the Grim also loves seeing opponents creatures dying.
Tombstone Stairwell is such a cool card. I wish I picked one up before it spiked. :(

Thank you for the suggestions DixietheGod, and glad to hear you got some new ideas. I immediately made a cut for Reassembling Skeleton and Sengir, the Dark Baron seems like a great finisher as well. Also I would totally build an Elenda deck if she weren't so pricey. Maybe a good stretch goal if I like how the deck plays on a budget or if I make another Orzhov deck.

Nice deck! Gave me plenty of ideas for my own (Teysa Karlov Death Doubling). Some that I think could help in here on a budget are: Reassembling Skeleton, Dross Harvester, Falkenrath Noble, and Sengir, the Dark Baron.
If you wanted to bust your budget a bit, Elenda, the Dusk Rose is an absolute game-changer for me.

Hey, this is a really good start for could be less than $50, but you did forget Sol Ring.
Anje Falkenrath is a nice budget legendary Vampire for repeatable loot to help to setup Olivia. Consider more sac outlets? Goblin Bombardment and High Market are excellent and Undercity Informer is fine. Consistently you really want a sac outlet to protect creatures you reanimate with Olivia from being exiled.
Falkenrath Aristocrat is a creature who Olivia can reanimate and since it has flying that helps it to survive combat since it enters attacking. Dark Privilege is a budget old/rarely seen card, but can be powerful when enchanted to Olivia. Repeatable regeneration can protect Olivia from combat damage letting her more freely attack to trigger. The creature Olivia reanimated can be fodder to sac to regenerate her which is helpful when you're reanimating a creature who has an ETB effect such as Vile Entomber. Viscera Seer is a one drop sac outlet that gives you some library manipulation to help draws.
Anje and the sac outlets are support cards and I think you can afford to cut a few high CMC creatures who have redundant effects to add them. You have many ways to tutor directly for a creature of your choice and put it into your graveyard which gives you leeway to play mostly the better creatures here to reanimate.
Some cuts to consider:
- Fractured Powerstone could be cut for Sol Ring.
- Kazarov, Sengir Pureblood could be cut for Anje Falkenrath.
- Bane of Bala Ged could be cut because Ulamog's Crusher and Artisan of Kozilek are better.
- Rakshasa Debaser could be cut since Sepulchral Primordial is better.
- Sengir, the Dark Baron could be cut since Necropolis Regent is better.
Good luck with your deck.
