Castle Locthwain is good for card draw.
What additions are you looking for? Different creatures? More card draw? More removal?

YamishiTheWickedOne, thank you for checking out the build and for the suggestions. Regarding said suggestions, I do have Thoughtseize in the sb, Inquisition of Kozilek is something I considered, but wasn’t sure if it should be part of the main or the side and how many. I agree Vampire Nocturnus is great, but a little slow for modern imo, even if it’s cheated out with sorin. Gatekeeper of Malakir was in an earlier build and is very solid, but only effective when kicked and if played on curve, it’s not the best turn 3 play since we’re already leaving mana open for Kalastria Highborn . Gifted Aetherborn is one of my favorite vampires, but didn’t seem to synergies as well in this particular build. Indulgent Aristocrat is another card I considered while building this, but decided against it because it’s a 1/1 and it costs 2 for the sac/buff effect, I do see a nice combo with Cordial Vampire tho. I could be completely wrong with the thought process, but will reevaluate things based on your suggestions.

No, vampires are great for utilizing sacrifice. I have a casual modern vamp deck that is similar and wins quite often in multiplayer. Though I use a couple red/black cards over black/white vamps and I go with more of a Sacrifice theme. Cards you may want to consider for this deck are- Bloodghast , Liliana, Dreadhorde General , Vampire Nocturnus , and maybe some more Grave Pact .

Followup thoughts: You kind of already have the trifecta of level 1 vamps here being Viscera, Noble and Ebon Legion along with Bloodghast. I personally prefer to go one or the other between straight up aggressive or the more Aristocrats style sacrifice engine. Myself, I'd replace Highborn or maybe Cordial with Gatekeeper of Malakir and/or Gifted Aetherborn . Though between Sorin, Zagras and Ebon you already have a lot of deathtouch going around.
Other big creatures to consider: Vampire Nocturnus because you have fetch lands and Seer + Ghast, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet who has excellent synergy with the first strike + deathtouch interaction, and Champion of Dusk . Not a big fan of Yahenni here (Love him in EDH but trying to do too many things in Modern makes it feel cluttered).
Non-creature support: I like including Mutavault and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth . Terminate is a good Rakdos creature hate spell that can be easily swapped for Dreadbore in your side game 2 if necessary. Maybe up your Thoughtseize count or toss in 2-3 Inquisition of Kozilek .

I dont know if you're still using the site or the deck but here are a few things that id recommend; Shared Animosity for extra power, id swap metallic mimic for Door of Destinies that way you can add in Cordial Vampire , id remove Taurean Mauler for Vampire Nocturnus , i dont see any real reanimation there id add something like Patriarch's Bidding , you don't have any in case of emergency board wipes Kindred Dominance is good because it doesn't effect you. Cathars' Crusade can hit like truck and its another way of bulking up your creatures. land wise you could run Cabal Coffers just for the extra black mana. Id remove Reforge the Soul just on the basis there is no reanimation in the deck

I personally have not tried the full monte every one drop super low curve Edgar Markov list because I just love my own list I'm running right now so much, but that's not to say that I don't play a very aggressive list.
I think that the one drop full monte aggressive list should work very well in theory I have no criticism of any creature choices you run in the deck beside the fact that I think you should run Vampire Nocturnus since you have the mana base that he is fine and he is not to hard to trigger especially with fetch lands.
My main concern with your deck is that card draw choices, besides skull clamp, are far too modest. Minions' Murmurs , Pact of the Serpent , and Necropotence , are all as much or less mana than your current cards, and will draw significantly more cards than your current card draw. Additionally, if you can afford Vampiric Tutor , or Demonic Tutor they might also be good to replace your current card draw as Necropotence can fuel Edgar Markov Aggro nearly indefinitely.
Overall though the deck looks good, would appreciate it if you would check out my own list and would appreciate your thoughts.

I agree with trying to capitalize on creatures a little more than noncreatures since you already have Drana, Liberator of Malakir , Zulaport Cutthroat , and Liliana Vess caring about them to one degree or another. I think the best creatures to look into would be vampires since you already have a decent shell for them. Gatekeeper of Malakir or Feast of Blood could swap for Geth's Verdict , Gifted Aetherborn or Nighthawk Scavenger could supplement Vampire Nighthawk , Pulse Tracker or Vampire of the Dire Moon could replace Mardu Shadowspear , Blood Artist could replace Cutthroat, Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose provides redundancy for Sanguine Bond , Pawn of Ulamog can provide sac fodder for cards like Ob Nix or Viscera Seer , Nullpriest of Oblivion is a flexible way to reanimate beefy monsters like Sangromancer , Vampire Nocturnus , Malakir Bloodwitch , Butcher of Malakir , or Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet . Finally, while not a vampire, I'd rather play Sidisi, Undead Vizier over Diabolic Tutor if you can't afford the OG 1-2 cost tutors. BTW, I'm not saying you should run all of these cards; just run what fits your playstyle.

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.
