Karlov of the Ghost Council is an INSANE card for a deck like this when you combo it with ajani. its pricey, but kicks major ass. I'd look into cheaper dual lands like Caves of Koilos and Temple of Silence . They both work pretty well for me
Kaya's Guile and Mortify are super strong here too. perhaps consider ditching Vampire of the Dire Moon and Vizkopa Vampire for Gifted Aetherborn or Vampire Nighthawk since those 1 drops are easy targets for cheap removal.

legendofa: Quality should always be your guide. If you were using all 10 planeswalkers on a single (non-superfriends theme) like for example if they all pumped out tokens and then buffed them, that would be fine. But here you effectively have:
Ajani Steadfast - Really slow way of making your commander a bit bigger. Plays into pillow fort, but pillow fort is not a win condition.
Garruk, Apex Predator - really expensive removal spell.
Kaya, Ghost Assassin - super slow way to draw a card.
Liliana Vess - super slow way to tutor a card.
Nissa, Voice of Zendikar - Her pump ability is a neg ability. That's annoying.
Sorin, Lord of Innistrad - I guess his plus makes tokens and he's not stupidly costed, so that's nice. Do you care about tokens though?
Teferi, Hero of Dominaria - He's at least card advantage. A bit expensive but it's a card each turn (let's face it, you don't give a crap about his other abilities 99% of the time) so this is probably a good keep.
Tezzeret the Seeker - A decent equipment tutor, on hte fence about this one. You don't take a huge amount of advantage of artifact untapping, but you've got some decent equipment so eh.
Looking at the planeswalkers, that's kind of what I see here. And don't get me wrong, repeatability is great. But you have to weigh that up against mana cost and frequency of repeatability.

Wow, Urge to Feed is definitely getting added! I'll swap out Sorin, Grim Nemesis for Sorin, Lord of Innistrad as I was only using Grim Nemesis for his ultimate, really. Not a good idea. Thanks for the recommendations, once I do my edits I'll go check out your deck, I like the sound of it.

Neat Build! +1
I use Urge to Feed as a pseudo-destroy in the Vampire Deck I built alongside a friend for a special Halloween competition a few years back (it's called Sorin's Lifelink Legions on my profile if you want to take a look).
This could be an alternative to not using Go for the Throat as you mention in the description; plus it's a counter on any number of creatures you want in a Vampire build which can be used very strategically; particularly if you have any Vampire token-generation (which I see a little of, maybe could add some more with Sorin, Lord of Innistrad or something).
Nice to see some of those other recommendations from your other deck make this list though! Very solid choices and I see a lot of similarities in our builds even though the theme is somewhat different.

I don't know about this, but in situations where the card says "return to the battlefield (Athreos, Shroud-Veiled, Luminous Broodmoth, Sorin, Lord of Innistrad), would Kunoros, Hound of Athreos cancel that?

Change log after not investing in this list in a while:
In terms of creature swaps, Ashen Rider is incredibly strong and a hard cut, but I’d rather have the cheap efficiency of Path. Archon of Justice costs less and is about as good.
Boreas Charger has always kinda sucked even if I get double death triggers, so in goes Celebrant as an additional wincon.
Sadistic Hypnotist is pretty good, but Altar costs less, can sacrifice at instant speed, and is a wincon.
Just an upgrade to a mana rock. I’d rather curve into Teysa on turn two than have an extra colorless mana a turn later.
This list really badly needed a way to just draw cards instantly; we have plenty of card draw value engines. I decided Dark Prophecy competed with Necro for its slot and got the cut.
Martyrs Bond I never really saw while playing, but I’d rather have another drain effect than something that stalls the game.
Sorry, foil original print Sorin, he’s a little slow to generate tokens for his mana cost. The deck needed a fourth tutor to more consistently pull together its combos anyway, and Grim is a spicy recent reprint.
And just some upgrades in the manabase. Overall, can’t wait to see how this list can perform even better!

Any reason why you're not running any Sorins?
Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord plays into your gain life, hurt them strategy perfectly.
Sorin, Lord of Innistrad consistent token generator.
And lost but not least Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord lets you play free vampires.
