Hey, this is a good start. Actually a really well made with the restriction of using most cards from only GRN and RNA, good job, nice Dark Depths :)
Budget cards that are currently in Standard mostly from DOM, GRN, RNA sets to consider adding:
- Squee, the Immortal
- Midnight Reaper
- Pitiless Plunderer
- Dragonskull Summit
- Costly Plunder
- Rix Maadi Reveler
- Reliquary Tower
For more upgrades you're going to however want to move away from just GRN and RNA cards, but this doesn't mean you have to spend a lot of money for upgrades. There's budget ($5 or less per card) upgrades you can make. I put a star (*) in front of the best upgrades of these suggestions.
- * Command Tower : best budget land for multicolor Commander decks.
- * High Market : sac outlet.
- Smoldering Marsh
- Foreboding Ruins
- Tainted Peak
- Graven Cairns
- Shadowblood Ridge
- Ghost Quarter
- * Ashnod's Altar : sac outlet that makes mana.
- * Skullclamp : very good repeatable draw when you're sacing creatures.
- * Viscera Seer : one drop sac outlet.
- Carrion Feeder
- Yahenni, Undying Partisan
- * Diabolic Intent : $5 tutor to get any card that also sacs a creature.
- Altar's Reap
Repeatable value from sacing creatures:
Make Judith deadly:
Busted with Dark Depths:
- * Vampire Hexmage : sac it to remove all counters from Depths.
- Thespian's Stage : make a copy of Depths, the copy doesn't have any counters, sac it and get Marit Lage.
Reanimate lots of creatures:
- * Talisman of Indulgence : two drop mana rock.
- * Rakdos Signet
- Burnished Hart
- Blasphemous Act
- Rakdos Charm
If you like some of these suggestions I can help you to make cuts.
Good luck with your deck.

ScryLord Exava is in because she is decently powerful and I was salvaging my last standard deck. Yes, I haven't played standard since 2014. I do like Bloodsoaked Champion , but do you have any suggestions to replace Exava?

Generally your card selection here is at too high a mana cost, no 1 mana spells is a big deal, especially when, off the top of my head; Viscera Seer , Mortician Beetle , Deathgreeter , Quest for the Gravelord and Thoughtpicker Witch all exist. Modern is a fast format, spells which cost 4 or more mana need to have significant impact to be playable, spells that cost less need to be the most efficient version. For example, you might think that these three cards would be ordered in playability thus: Murder > Victim of Night > Fatal Push , the opposite is actually true Fatal Push is the best of the 3, it is one of the best removal spells in Modern... In a deck focused on sacrifice though Tragic Slip is also a good choice.
Cards like Grim Haruspex , Skirsdag High Priest and Bone Picker are ideal for this sort of deck as you net an additional benefit from the sacrifice. A card like Scavenger Drake can't be played until turn 4, Mortician Beetle is potentially there on turn 1. If you want a finisher in this sort of deck Demon of Death's Gate would be a classic option. Cards which can return themselves also have value Bloodsoaked Champion and Reassembling Skeleton would be examples.
Try to organise the deck so that you have more 1 drops, than 2, more 2 than 3 etc, keep in mind though that functionally Bone Picker should be a 1 drop in your deck, so there is a little wiggle room. I hope this helps, good luck brewing your deck.

If Collective Defiance had an escalate cost not tied to paying mana, like Collective Brutality and Collective Effort, even if that cost was sacrificing a land, I'd like it more. As it stands, you are likely to only use one mode, so why not just run Cathartic Reunion? Hollow One wants to play fast, an extra mana is a big thing. Scrapheap Scrounger is ok, I guess, though why not just run Bloodsoaked Champion, Haunted Dead or Hellspark Elemental as Bloodghast, since they don't eat your graveyard, which your delve creatures will need?
I play a Hollow One variant myself; Power 4 is Ferocious it isn't budget, but it could be; Power 4 is Ferocious Budget. Losing the fetches, even with a cycle land will hurt more than you might realise, though I'd also run 10 mountains and 2 swamps, even if unlikely, you could end up with a no red sources in your opening hand, at the moment. You can still get the classic start of Flameblade Adept then a discard spell next turn into Hollow One or the more explosive multiples of the golem, so that aspect is solid. I wish you luck with your brew, Hollow One is the most fun I've had in a while with a deck. Hope this is of help.

Wonder and Skullclamp would be an autoinclude. You could do some aristocrats style gameplay while grinding through little self-recurring dudes like Bloodghast, Reef Worm, and Bloodsoaked Champion while churning through your deck with Midnight Reaper or Grim Haruspex, draining everyone with Blood Artist effects and simultaneously clearing the board with Grave Pact effects (found a use for Ruthless Deathfang!)
You could include some mind control effects to sac for value. Dragonlord Silumgar and Roil Elemental have a special place in my heart. And while we're on the topic of ETB's you could run a few one-off etb/death guys like Ravenous Chupacabra, Mulldrifter (I believe you can evoke and sac the dude while the evoke sacrifice trigger is on the stack but don't quote me on that) the primordials and Keiga, the Tide Star.
