Creature — Vampire Shaman
Deathtouch (Any amount of damage this deals to a creature is enough to destroy it.)
Lifelink (Damage dealt by this creature also causes you to gain that much life.)

Enchantment - Aura
Enchanted creature gets Flying, Deathtouch, and Lifelink.
Sacrifice Nighthawk's Embrace: until the end of turn, target creature gains, when this creature dies, return it to your hand
Based off of my first favorite card Vampire Nighthawk

Cards I'd suggest finding room for
Tutors like Forerunner of the Legion if you don't like the usual ones.
Mass reanimation like Twilight's Call Living Death or even Patriarch's Bidding I feel mass reanimation and using aristocrats to win on the spot is the most ideal way to win in this type of deck. Always run some if you plan to win with death triggers.
Specifically for Edgar Markov I'd run some sort of Xtra combat spell like Waves of Aggression just so he is the finisher he is if you need to cast him.

Lord_of_Cardboard, thanks for the input, and I've definitely considered those cards. I must've removed Vampire Nighthawk on accident when Nighthawk Scavenger came out, but since Gifted Aetherborn is still in my list, I think its fine to include them both. As far as Concerted Effort goes, a noncreature permanent for 4 mana that gives my board a keyword a turn isn't worth the slot. There's much better effects like Eldrazi Monument or Cover of Darkness, or sometimes Akroma's Memorial (in a lower power deck). Concerted Effort doesn't actually do much given the restricted keywords it looks for. Vampire Nighthawk only gives your board flying, not deathtouch or lifeline. Still a cool card though.

Cordial Vampire very good I'd play 4
Village Rites way better than Altar's Reap
Indulgent Aristocrat is a decent vampire sac outlet. Pawn of Ulamog makes a bunch of additional bodies/ramp, and with a blood artist and a sac outlet on the field can frequently drain the opponent for lethal.

Hey, good start and budget Vampire version of Olivia.
Consider getting the Crimson Vow Vampiric Bloodline Commander precon? The precon would be a fine start at upgrading your Vampires and has many staple cards for Commander such as Command Tower and Arcane Signet. What all precons lack however is a good basic casual Commander deck structure to start a deck with:
- 36 lands (Command Tower)
- 25+ creatures (Necropolis Regent)
- 10+ ramp sources (Arcane Signet)
- 10+ draw sources (Champion of Dusk)
- 10- removal (Anowon, the Ruin Sage)
Not all areas of a deck are covered in this structure example just the basics and of course these numbers can change as you're deck building. Some cards can cover many areas which is what you really want with cards you choose to play especially in this case Vampires.
Vampire upgrades in Vampiric Bloodline: Patron of the Vein, Necropolis Regent, Anowon, the Ruin Sage, Champion of Dusk, Butcher of Malakir, Crossway Troublemakers, Stromkirk Captain, Sanctum Seeker, Cordial Vampire, Rakish Heir, Indulgent Aristocrat, Malakir Bloodwitch, Bloodtracker, Vampire Nighthawk, Falkenrath Noble, Blood Artist.
Other good nonVampire cards in Vampiric Bloodline: Sol Ring, Arcane Signet, Command Tower, Olivia's Wrath, Vandalblast, Stensia Masquerade, Swiftfoot Boots, Rakdos Signet, Blasphemous Act, Feed the Swarm, Rakdos Charm, Night's Whisper, Commander's Sphere, Tainted Peak, Unclaimed Territory, Exotic Orchard, Path of Ancestry, Smoldering Marsh, Foreboding Ruins, Shadowblood Ridge, Temple of Malice.
Of course you don't have to get the precon, but in doing so you get a lot of cards at one time. I listed many cards that would be upgrades to pick and choose from if you would rather do that, if at all. If interested I offer more advice in another comment.
Good luck with your deck.

I am making a Karlov deck right now, awaiting cards from online purchase, so I am very interested in others takes on refinements.
I hadn't considered Peer into the Abyss is that working out well for you? You should have life to burn and it seems awesome if it does. In a similar vein, I really don't like Underworld Connections. Bolas's Citadel and Necropotence seem so much better, but the latter is pretty pricy. I'd probably run Sign in Blood type cards over Connections.
I don't understand Tree of Perdition. What is that doing for you?
I like what you have going. Please feel free to critique mine over at The Fat Man

Woh quite a lot of new vampires, sadly many are with the Blood Token mechanics, and as I don't want to change my deck too much there aren't really much of a point to include them, but I did found place for 4 new vampires:
+1 Edgar, Charmed Groom Flip
+1 Henrika Domnathi Flip
+1 Olivia, Crimson Bride
+1 Welcoming Vampire
-1 Vampire Nighthawk
-1 Bloodlord of Vaasgoth
-1 Necropolis Regent
-1 Zagras, Thief of Heartbeats
Comments\suggestions are always welcomed, trying to update this deck from time to time along my other decks.
