Cheap BG stuff that you might want to consider: Vulturous Zombie stuff dying is quite good, Varolz, the Scar-Striped graveuard stuff and sac engine, Spiritmonger, Reaper of the Wilds stuff dying is good, Rakshasa Deathdealer, Putrid Leech a decent buff, Pharika, God of Affliction graveyard and make some snakes, Hag Hedge-Mage versatility is good, Grave-Shell Scarab for some draw, Doomgape is a good sac engine, Deity of Scars good dude in general, Baloth Null for some recursion, Puppeteer Clique not BG but steal your opponet's stuff.

Speaking of big cards, with all of the extra mana you are generating, you may want to consider adding some of those. As is, the most expensive cards you have are Bone Picker (which you will most of the time cast for one black anyway) and From Beyond (which can be replaced by the cheaper Awakening Zone.
Some big cards/mana sinks you might consider putting in include Animation Module, Rishkar's Expertise to refill your hand, recovery cards like Baloth Null or Greenwarden of Murasa, or big finisher cards like Decimator of the Provinces (a good emerge sacrifice for the Decimator is your Bone Picker, since the ability looks at converted mana cost).

Baloth Null costs too much and goes against your commander
Care to list your combos so I can get a better sense of what this deck is trying to do

Ok, some changes made. Yavimaya Elder in for Crumbling Vestige (an early game Elder will provide excellent card draw and land fetch, thinning the deck by at least three cards per turn, if not more); Phyrexian Plaguelord in, Baloth Null out; Eternal Witness in for Restock (recursion makes it too good to pass up); Carnival of Souls in for Decaying Soil (the price for keeping Decaying Soil around is too steep, as I need the cards in my graveyard); Necropotence in for Blood Bairn (going to give it a try).
Always looking for some more comments!

My main suggestion for making this deck more effective is prioritizing. Your deck will run much more consistently if you have less 1 ofs and putting 3 or 4 of cards that really help your deck, so you're more likely to draw into them when you need them.
As for some suggestions of things you don't have yet, I can tell you like casual, so I won't get too in-depth with super-competitive combos and things. If you like Ring of Xathrid, consider Ring of Kalonia. If you have both on a 2-color creature like Lord of Extinction, the ability will stack and it will grow even faster.
On the subject of 2-color creatures, I really like Creakwood Liege for this deck, he'll boost all your creatures and make even more creatures to boost. His ability will also stack for 2-color creatures, giving them +2/+2. Baloth Null is also a solid budget card. Works as a big creature, and gets back some of the creatures you're sacrificing.
I don't think Predator's Gambit will help you much, because in testing I usually had several creatures out, but there are plenty of solid enchantments to replace it with like Gift of the Deity or Aspect of Gorgon.

First of all, a commander deck must have exactly 100 cards (including your commander), and you have 106
I suggest you remove some lands, as that takes up almost 50% of your deck
Now, if I were to build a Mazirek deck, I would definitely go with a heavy token strategy, as tokens are relatively easy to produce (especially in Golgari), expendable, and given enough time and resources, can easily win you the game.
So, with that in mind, I suggest you remove these:
-1 Sedge Scorpion, Typhoid Rats, Tormented Soul, Pharika's Chosen, Blisterpod, Black Cat, Elderscale Wurm, Nylea, God of the Hunt, Ghoultree, Gray Merchant of Asphodel, Dark Betrayal, Traveler's Amulet, Kheru Dreadmaw, Hunter's Ambush, Commencement of Festivities, Pulse of Murasa, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Bonds of Mortality, Karametra's Acolyte, Baloth Null
And possibly replace some of them with some of these:
Mycoloth, Ashnod's Altar, Grave Pact, Viscera Seer, Avenger of Zendikar, Yahenni, Undying Partisan, Animation Module, Hardened Scales, Mind Slash, Orochi Hatchery, It That Betrays, Creakwood Liege, Vulturous Zombie, Catacomb Sifter, Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder, Falkenrath Noble, Blood Artist, Necrogenesis, Deathreap Ritual, Attrition, Perilous Forays, Korozda Guildmage, Reaper of the Wilds, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Abhorrent Overlord, Grim Haruspex, Yavimaya Elder, Golgari Germination
That's all I can think of off of the top of my head
