I was moving to my new place.. Finally could unpack cards and get back to tunning this deck :) (Unfortunately thanks to Covid situation here, won't be able to play it anytime soon :()
Drolas , thanks for your comment. The Neoform combo is interesting, I will get the card soon from my friend and will be able to try.
In the meantime, I have removed what is now placed in sideboard and added. Going MOAR creatures.

While i always liked Greed in theory, it is good for a long game but costly in the short term. as it takes 5 mana and 2 life just to replace itself. i would definitely run Phyrexian Arena over this if you have it. some other options to consider would be Ambition's Cost, Promise of Power, Land Tax, Necropotence, Skeletal Scrying.
also would consider Recruiter of the Guard and Hero of Bladehold as creature options

hi, I like your deck! I have a couple suggestions:
Esper Panorama > Warped Landscape
i would consider High Market over or in addition to Miren, the Moaning Well.
I like Mirrorpool in theory but ive found i like never actually use its ability and it ETBs tapped - so i like Temple of the False God for 2x the mana and etb untapped...
your removal selection is really good already..
Proper Burial feels like an, "if you're winning win more" card to me but idk.
given that you are sacrificing your creatures i feel like you could have a little more recursion... i like Phyrexian Reclamation and Unburial Rites.
also i would consider just a little more card draw in general, i like Promise of Power, Ambition's Cost, Skeletal Scrying, Phyrexian Arena. but i've never played your deck so idk maybe you usually have enough cards.
anyway those are my thoughts, hope they are helpful and keep on having fun!

As far as Vampires, you should add more (have around 35ish), but I'm not sure which ones are essential to add. But regardless, here are some suggestions.

triproberts12 thanks for commenting on the deck! I have some drawing spells in there already like Necrologia and Ambition's Cost but I do like your suggestions for lower cost draw spells. My concern with Skeletal Scrying is exiling potentially useful cards since my graveyard is basically the waiting area for all the instant recursion I'd like to see mid-game. I like Moonlight Bargain and am searching for a place to add that particular friend. Because I'm so creature light, I haven't really cared much to use a lot of anti-instant defense in this but I'm considering removing some of my current instants to incorporate some of your suggestions. After I play this a few more times as is, I'll see if some slots merit that defensive capability. For the other synergy options you suggested, some of them I thought the CMC cost too high for their effect or already had a means to do a similar thing ( like Mirari for example, I have Primal Amulet Flip to offer spell copies and add the cost reduction beforehand!). Of your list, I loved the idea of adding Isochron Scepter and Runechanter's Pike ! Mixing Isochron with Dark Ritual or Cabal Ritual for mana, Thrilling Encore or Grim Return to add friends from other graveyards to Toshiro's party, or Liliana's Triumph , Snuff Out , or Go for the Throat for unending killing/sacrificing fun! And Runecrafter's just amps the crap out of (most likely) Toshiro for another avenue of commander damage FTW. Thank you for all your suggestions!
