Some of the best cards in commander are commons because in other formats they are not as strong and sometimes what is strong in one format is not always strong in commander. Rhystic Study is an example great in commander does not really see play in other formats.
In Modern izzet blitz/prowess type decks are really strong Sprite Dragon is an uncommon and was strong it has been replaced recently but in commander it is a ok 2 drop in some decks.
Dragon's Rage Channeler is an uncommon and it is a very good card in a lot of formats and is really good in commander because of strong graveyard decks it can help fuel Underworld Breach and other graveyard shenanigans in rakdos, jund etc etc
Consider is a common and seeing play in several formats once again powering graveyard stuff so making it stronger than opt at this point and I have already put it in one commander deck because it can put stuff in my graveyard to power my underworld breach. Heck it would be good in decks running commanders like Muldrotha, the Gravetide The Mimeoplasm Tasigur, the Golden Fang so yea sulti decks like this card a lot
Gitaxian Probe is a common banned in everything but commander it reads free card draw because you can 100% be tapped out pay 2 life draw a card and yes that is a good card even in commander.
I would say the recent push of fire it was trending that direction but it seems since the oko and omath mistakes that basically overshadowed cards at the uncommon and common level. Recently it seems more balanced because sometimes perception is reality.
That's just my view on the subject

zapyourtumor interesting choice with those Sprite Dragon suggestion, i dont have them at the moment but i have leftover 4 Vexing Devil from my old burn. those would also have nice interaction with both Dress Down and lurrus, should i consider those instead of swiftys until i get f.e. dragons / more monke??

If you're looking for additional threats I'd probably use 2 Sprite Dragon or something instead of Swiftspear -- it's a little less explosive but a better mid-game/long-term threat since it keeps the counters. Also it gets the buff off of dress down before it resolves.

A few spells I like in my magecraft decks:
Mordenkainen's Polymorph - Grants stats, evasion, and can also make for a surprise blocker if needed. Doesn't take away abilities either so cast on a Luminancer you have a 6/6 Flying dragon that will still get bigger when/if you cast more spells.
Show of Confidence - Has the potential to be a finisher, especially when both Luminarch and Lightscribe are on the field.
Guiding Voice - Sure it's a sorcery, but it offers a permanent buff and a choice of lesson which can sometimes be better than a straight draw.
Kick in the Door - again, sorcery but haste and permanent buff can be nice and venture is pretty much always going to be scry 1 the first time, and if you get to the next level the treasure can help your fixing or a gobo for a chump blocker.
Sprite Dragon - I think trumps Apprentice, at least until it rotates. It flies, grows permanently with counters, is still evasive, and considering all the other dragons floating about it could be used defensively.
What you remove, if anything, I'll leave to you. Test some stuff out, see what works for you... hope it helps.
Edit: One more note, I'm not sure access tunnel is necessary and may be more harm that good, especially in a tricolor aggro deck. Just a thought, but if it works for you it works.

Right off the cuff I would cut Blood Seeker , Voracious Vampire and Brave the Sands as they dont help you win with your life shenanigans. Keeping 1 copy of Blood Seeker may be decent against token or creature decks but that's up to you. Blood Burglar to me seems like a sub-optimal version of Vampire of the Dire Moon and Tithe Drinker so I would swap those. If you have the wallet, Exquisite Blood makes you go infinite with Vito so its an easy swap with Boon Reflection and Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord is insane, especially when combined with cards like Champion of Dusk and Sanctum Seeker . Indulging Patrician and Silversmote Ghoul is a path if you can consistently get to 3 life each turn. Some copies of Fatal Push or Heartless Act may do you some good because spot removal is nice in modern. You could also be spicy and go Abiding Grace + some decent one drops like Knight of the Ebon Legion , Indulgent Aristocrat , Guul Draz Assassin , Guul Draz Vampire and Vampire Cutthroat . That aside, Nighthawk Scavenger , Blood Artist , Legion's Landing Flip, Legion Lieutenant , and Drana's Emissary seem like they would fit nicely. I might cut some Cleric of life's bond as well, because its almost purely overshadowed by faster growing cards like Ajani's Pridemate and Sprite Dragon atm. I might also consider cutting 1 Boon Reflection and 1-2 lands to fit the mana curve a little more nicely. A lot of these are just pure suggestions, so the choice on what path is up to you. All in all, very cool deck. I am a big fan of trying to make Vito work, I hope you are successful in your journey and I hope this helps.
