Maybe consider splashing B?

VampRamped Sorry for a very very late reply.
Skymarcher Aspirant could definitely replace Duskborne Skymarcher here (or run both). He's just here to give me an evasive 1 drop.
Vampire Nighthawk and Nighthawk Scavenger are both in the list now. I like flyers, especially ones that trade up... or better yet deter attacks.
Bloodlord of Vaasgoth probably isn't necessary but the deck is built as more of a midrange aggro deck than full tilt aggro. I was happy with the card personally. I don't see too much spot removal but rather a LOT of wraths... thus me running 4 different anti-wrath cards.
Olivia Voldaren is gone now. Sangromancer is here to be a flyer and to offset a lot of self inflicted life loss. Again, a bit of a meta call because he was triggered frequently.
Sorin, Solemn Visitor definitely deserves the spot over Sorin Imperious Bloodlord here. Bloodlord's +1 only effects 1 creature, his minus is just Lightning helix with a forced sac, and his ult wants fatty vamps which the deck runs sparingly. Solemn Visitor's +1 is 'until your next turn' so it's insanely good with Reconnaissance and gains massive amounts of life, deters attacks, or they forget about it and immediately regret attacking. Other than making the occasionally needed 2/2 flyer that's all he does here.
As far as my 2 drop rocks go, you could attempt this deck without them but I wouldn't recommend it. This really is more of a midrange aggro strategy but it worked really well in my meta. This is the rare Edgar list that doesn't mind a game going to 20+ turns.

libraryjoy i got a lot of the suggestions that you made and I am already enjoying the new deck! I was wondering if you could also take a look at my sideboard. These are other cards that I own. Some of them are a little extreme, like Armageddon for a mana - ramp deck, but should I put any of these in my main deck? Or leave them in my sideboard depending on the opponent? Another card I am considering is Sunblast Angel . Its ability to destroy all tapped creatures could be used with Blinding Light , but I feel like that would not happen enough to make it worth it.
What are your thoughts on Planeswalkers? Some that I am considering that are on the more affordable side but still good cards are Sorin, Solemn Visitor , Liliana, Waker of the Dead , Ajani Goldmane , and Ajani, Caller of the Pride . I would consider getting two of these because they are only about $4 each. Or should would it be worth it to buy only one PlanesWalker and get Sorin Markov ?
Again, I really appreciate all the help! MTG is a lot more fun when your deck works well!

Love to see Edgar Markov decks doing well on Tapped Out you. Had a few suggestions that I think could make this a stronger aggro deck.
- Two Mana Mana rocks: In my experience with Aggressive Edgar Markov decks getting the aggressive strategy to work is all about playing at least one vampire every turn from one to four. When you just spend your second turn playing a mana rock you significantly damage the momentum building of your deck and give your opponents a lot more time to build up their boards or find an answer. In addition, you already play cards like Boros Charm and Flawless Maneuver which in a way "preserves" the mana you commit to the board and prevent you from losing momentum. Obviously, cards like Sol Ring and Mana Crypt are perfectly fine as they get you ahead of your curve and you can start comming more powerful vampires earlier in the game and you don't lose any momentum due to their raw efficieny as mana rocks.
Next, I just had a handful of card suggestions
Bloodlord of Vaasgoth Maybe he's fun but he is just not a very good card, he is 5 mana and has no immediate board impact, if for whatever reason that he is threatening he will just get removed. In addition Edgar Markov himself is one more mana and has the same role as Bloodlord of Vaasgoth does but just does it better. There are a lot of cards that you could replace him with, perhaps just Bloodghast he is a decent attacker and he is really good with Skullclamp + fetch lands.
Sorin, Solemn Visitor for Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord , removal, mana cheating, and buffing all on one card and for one mana less. Although Sorin, Solemn Visitor isn't a bad card so you could just put in Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord for one of the other cards.
Nice to see an Edgar Markov deck with Vampire Nocturnus , the best vampire. If you want to check out my own deck I have a link here This deck isn't a pure aggro list but it is one of the stategies the deck can go for.

For example, Sorin, Solemn Visitor is my pick for an under-rated planeswalker. This Sorin is much stronger than people think. It's a token producer, a "short-term anthem" that lasts longer that most "short-term anthems", and a game ending card in one. It saw a lot of play during standard of it's time, and modern soon after that, but no longer sees as much play. It's good in pretty much every deck, from fast aggro or token decks, to control decks, even to janky life gain decks!
