zapyourtumor good call(s) here. I should mention that I have this neat app on my phone called Deckforger which I use when I’m actually constructing the decks I make, then I port them over to my account here when finished. Sometimes they undergo changes between the two, or I forget things or don’t transfer them properly.
I actually had Shriekmaw and Ingot Chewer in the sideboard on the app, but they didn’t transfer (not sure why). Archfiend of Ifnir is in the sideboard also. And Titanoth Rex definitely made the cut; I bought 2 in my last order. I’ll pass on Beast Within for now, but if I have removal problems I’ll keep it in mind. I’ll tuck it in the maybe board. Thanks for all the tips!

Although it is a little bit more expensive, Simian Spirit Guide can provide acceleration if needed. Beast Within is also a decent addition to living end since the 3/3 drawback is removed most of the time.
I personally like Archfiend of Ifnir, although it does cost 2 mana to cycle as well.

Blood Pet to act like your simian.
Since you're running the Worldgorger combo you should add Necromancy for redundancy with your Animate Dead effects. In that same vein I would recommend Comet Storm to act as an instant speed wincon for the combo, since the combo can make an infinite loop if you don't have something else in your graveyard to reanimate to break the cycle. Also, little change that can win the game, add Sunscorched Desert. The worldgorger combo can turn that ping land into a win condition.
This is my own budget cEDH decklist for Anje We're All Mad Here (budget cEDH). It's built to have the worldgorger combo, but not be 100% reliant on it. Feel free to give it a look.

Yes, they get to stack these triggers.
Anytime someone has multiple triggers try to enter the stack at the same time, they get to order those triggers. In your example, Dark Prophecy and Moldervine Reclamation both trigger from the same event (a creature dying), so they will try to go onto the stack at the same time. In general though, this does not have to be the case.
If you have something that triggers when you discard a card (such as Archfiend of Ifnir) and something that triggers when you draw a card (such as Psychosis Crawler), you get to order the triggers from those two cards when you Windfall.
Hope this helps!!

Looks great. You might like these: Painful Quandary, Archfiend of Ifnir, Bag of Holding, Nezumi Shortfang Flip, Liliana's Triumph, Rankle, Master of Pranks, Animate Dead, Dance of the Dead, Alhammarret's Archive, Psychosis Crawler, Syr Konrad, the Grim, Bubbling Muck, Memory Jar, Library of Leng, Skirge Familiar, Bottled Cloister (so you don't discard anything to your own "upkeep = discard" effects. and it's pretty cheap for an extra draw each turn)

Things I'd cut: Frost Marsh just a tap land, not worth it
Spire of Industry not enough artifact to turn it on early and you don't really need it late
Diabolic Tutor too slow, you'll be drawing so many cards anyway
Karn's Temporal Sundering also slow and expensive, you'd need upwards of 10 mana to make this thing worth it
Folio of Fancies nonbo with much of the discard stuff, and mill is not the way this deck wins so why let your opponents keep extra cards?
Exquisite Blood same deal, you don't really need lifegain and at 5 mana youd rather play nek himself
Psychosis Crawler this one's a hot take, but in a deck dedicated to making your opponents draw, he is looking for the opposite. Also 5 mana is neks spot.
Niv-Mizzet, Parun casting cost is fucking rough, but this is a maybe cuz he is really strong
Psychic Corrosion same deal as folio about this not being a mill deck
Sangromancer you don't need much life gain
Spark Double not sure what you're copying, an extra nek is nice but doesn't seem like that huge of a difference, nothing else seems worth it.
Torbran, Thane of Red Fell triple red is tough and he doesn't really change the clock that much. This is more a matter of preference though
Mission Briefing you're almost certainly using this for a wheel but why not just run another wheel and not have to pay an extra UU?
Before I say what I'd add specifically, in general I think you need a little more speed, a few more lands and a lot more interaction. 2 counters, 2 spot removal, and 3 board wipes does not feel like enough, especially for a relatvely slow deck that doesn't combo out. I would add a mix of 4-5 spot removal and counter spells and 4 more lands before even looking at any of the cards below.
Cards I would add:
Another land or two in addition to the above. Your commander is 5 mana after all and your average CMC is over 3. Average CMC times 10 or 11 is my baseline for lands
Curiosity stellar, cheap card draw
Nightscape Familiar effectively a mana dork, helps with the speed
Whirlpool Warrior another wheel
Archfiend of Ifnir pet card, turns wheels into board wipes
Vision Skeins fun card, works perfectly with your strategy
