I play a more aristocrats type of build, but can suggest a few vampires to look into. Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord is PHENOMENAL, specially with Bloodghast & Silversmote Ghoul. All work incredibly well with Cordial Vampire, he acts like a lord buffing the team whenever any creature dies. Knight of the Ebon Legion is a very nasty 1 drop that doubles as a removal spell later in the game. Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose I nice as well. Depending on your budget, I’d also suggest at least 2 Cavern of Souls, some fetches like Verdant Catacombs, Marsh Flats, Prismatic Vista or Polluted Delta to thin out your deck, Castle Locthwain for some card draw. Hope some of that helps.

I might run fewer/creatures, since stickfingers will until you reveal x creatures, not just x cards. The fewer you have the higher chance you hit one that destroys the table if you just overload on ramp and reanimates. Rather than these things Crawl from the Cellar,Ghoul's Feast,Gravepurge I'd focus on just reanimating and is easy to get and will probably serve you better. If you really do want it back in your hand Genesis Skullwinder and Eternal Witness do this while attached to a body.
Rather than sending to your hand these will just bring back Diregraf Rebirth, Victimize, Reanimate, Exhume, Unearth, Whisper, Blood Liturgist, Stitch Together,Dread Return.Geth, Lord of the Vault is expensive but can fill your yard as well as revive others. Finale of Devastation revives or tutors, and is a finisher.
Rampant Growth is slightly inferior to Three Visits and Nature's Lore as long as your dual lands have both typesOvergrown Tomb, Bayou, Woodland Chasm, although I'd definitely run all three if there's room. Culling Ritual would be an amazing ramp/wipe card you can use to nuke all tokens and then cast stickfingers. Sakura-Tribe Elder is just rampant growth that works as a blocker for one turn, and it is another creature in your graveyard. Lotus Cobra ramps too, particularly with your other ramp options.
And you'll likey have enough mana to use Decree of Pain, if not, other wipe options are Damnation,Pernicious Deed,Death Cloud,Deathbringer Regent,In Garruk's Wake,Killing Wave,Necromantic Selection,Plague Wind,Reiver Demon,Toxic Deluge. Torment of Hailfire works as a finisher too Endurance is basically the only way you can protect your graveyard that I can think of. I'd probably run Veil of Summer too.
Since you'll have access to really big creatures these can be nice for draw. Greater Good, Momentous Fall, Return of the Wildspeaker, Garruk, Primal Hunter, Morbid Curiosity, Life's Legacy, Disciple of Bolas, Doom Weaver, Selvala, Heart of the Wilds.
I think every single black deck should run Dauthi Voidwalker, and the more grave hate you have the more you could take advantage of Living End/Living Death if you use these as mass reanimates. they are the cheapest.
You have a fairly high number of tutors, and a ton of ramp, so i'd consider Panglacial Wurm. It's a card you dont need to waste a draw to get and can be cast instant speed. And its fun to surprise people with it at least once.

some good lands make a world of difference. not the most exciting upgrades but probably the most functional.
- Boseiju, Who Endures these are amazing because if you dont need the land drop they can be a spell
- Otawara, Soaring City
- Marsh Flats
- Misty Rainforest
- Verdant Catacombs
- Flooded Strand
- Gavony Township
- Spara's Headquarters or other triomes from capenna
- Indatha Triome or other triomes
- Opal Palace
- Yavimaya, Cradle of Growth
- Temple Garden or other shock lands, they can be fetched and can enter untapped
- Dreamroot Cascade the midnight hunt and crimson vow lands are also great for helping fix your mana
- Karn's Bastion

for lands the following are always a good in my experience.
- Yavimaya, Cradle of Growth and it is not to expensive at the moment.
- Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth is also always a good add for black mana but more expensive.
- Cabal Coffers pairs amazing with urborg
- Verdant Catacombs is a good grab right now before it starts going up in price.
- Boseiju, Who Endures is amazing in any deck running green.
- Takenuma, Abandoned Mire
- Overgrown Tomb
- Deathcap Glade
- Mortuary Mire
- Bojuka Bog
at least 10 ramp cards has always been recommended to me, some ideas:

your land base is looking much better. some things to think about tho, your deck wants to play fast and getting lands out and also out of the way is necessary, so you dont want any lands that can enter tapped. playing fetch land like Verdant Catacombs or Wooded Foothills has 2 very powerful effects. first you search for whatever color your hand needs at the time. second, you take a land out of your deck reducing the chances that you will draw another down the line. this helps you draw into cards that will give your deck board presence rather than flooding you. here is how i would break down a good land structure for this deck. 4 Wooded Foothills, 2 Verdant Catacombs, 4 Stomping grounds, 4 Overgrown Tomb, 2 bloodcrypt, 2 Rootbound Crag, 3 Forest, 1 Mountain, and 1 Swamp. the reason for including basic lands is because most decks run some kind of land destruction that usually replace with basics. examples being Ghost Quarter and Field of Ruin.

Cool deck, seems pretty optimized. Just curious, have you thought about
Assassin's Trophy over putrefy or Verdant Catacombs over your a tapland?
I also quite like Sidisi, Undead Vizier in my graveyard deck.

Given you have crucible of worlds, surprised not to see the Ramunap Excavator and like all lthe forest fetches, Verdant Catacombs, Prismatic Vista, etc.
Also, if helix is the win con, seems like you want Seedborn Muse and maybe a way to tutor helix. Maybe Planar Bridge or Planar Portal.
You might want Constant Mists or Moment's Peace in case someone tries to kill you!!
Also i feel like Worldly Tutor is an auto include to fetch that nyxbloom ancient.
Anyway awesome deck hope you like the suggestions cheers and have fun!!!

Oh (bleep) you're right! LMAO. Like I said, I've been playing since Revised and have a LOT of decks. Always had a penchant for tribal knights (even though there have been/are better tribes for sure through the years). My Modern version does, in fact, run Giver of Runes. The Kor designation doesn't allow me to Cavern of Souls her in but I do run plenty of white sources. I'm sorry bud. 100% my bad. Sorry about that. I need to NOT drink my scotch and give advice. I just get soooooo excited when I see a solid knight tribal build I lose control.
I WILL post my ACTUAL MODERN legal version in the next few days. Giver of Runes is my only non-human or non knight creature in that deck. I run everything else human and/or knight in that deck-most are both. I announce my first Cavern of Souls as "knight" which prevents counter magic on all but the Giver of Runes and Noble Hierarch. Those both being (ideally) early drops-counter magic doesn't normally come into play.
My current, most regularly played, Modern deck is not knights (although I do play it still for a change of pace once in awhile but it's not my number one deck-hence my leading you astray). My current regular MODERN deck is as follows:
Deck: Greif Blade
Main: 4 Ephemerate 1 Poet's Quill 1 Batterskull 4 Giver of Runes 1 Sword of Fire and Ice 2 Plains 3 Godless Shrine 3 Concealed Courtyard 3 Skyclave Apparition 1 Takenuma, Abandoned Mire 3 Tidehollow Sculler 2 Malakir Rebirth Flip 2 Charming Prince 1 Kaldra Compleat 1 Silent Clearing 1 Shriekmaw 4 Grief 3 Feign Death 4 Marsh Flats 1 Lion Sash 1 Flooded Strand 3 Touch the Spirit Realm 1 Swamp 1 Castle Locthwain 2 Agadeem's Awakening Flip 2 Solitude 4 Stoneforge Mystic 1 Verdant Catacombs
This is the list I run most frequently so it's the one I know best and have readily available to share. This is NOT a net-deck AFAIK. If there is an identical or similar list floating around in Cyberspace it's purely coincidental. This list was home brewed and is one of my favorites I've ever made through the years.
