murder and ruinous path should be Hero's Downfall
Bojuka Bog or Nihil Spellbomb should be in the sideboard for graveyard hate.
Inquisition of Kozilek or Thoughtseize should be in over transgress and I would cut grasp to up the count to roughly 6.
Fulminator Mage, Ghost Quarter, Rain of Tears some combination of these should be somewhere in the 75.

I prefer draw spells over self mill for the fact that it is harder for opponents to permanently get rid of cards in my hand versus in my graveyard. There are more graveyard threats than permanent hand-removal threats (e.g. Bojuka Bog, Rest in Peace, and the likes).
Diplomatic Immunity was a card that I cut just in case I had to hard cast an aura onto Bruna. I have very few shroud cards, and the ones that I do have provide extra "goodies", haha. Sol Ring is intentionally not in here because I play this as a Duel (French) Commander deck during competitions at my local LGS, and unfortunately Sol Ring is banned in that format. Other than that, it would be in here without a doubt!
Thank you all for your comments and suggestions! I appreciate it very much. (:

I've had a similar experience. I haven't had to deal with too much graveyard hate, thankfully. I deal with the odd Scavenging Ooze and Bojuka Bog and alike. Luckily I haven't had to deal with Rest in Peace yet. On a side note, I actually find the most powerful card in the deck is actually Key to the City. I figured it would perform well but I'm honestly shocked by how well it does perform. If you haven't had the chance to use it yet, I think you'll be shocked by how good it is when you have a full hand.

Thank you for your praise, I am really proud of my primer and its been my main project for so long. My next goal is to figure out how to make text colored so I could start making sections like "sacrifice" or "discard" which will make the lists more process-able.
wombatula I know of a few powerful legacy Golgari decks. The main premise of these decks is the use of turn 1 discard (Thoughtseize or Inquisition of Kozilek) disruption like Pithing Needle, Phyrexian Revoker, or Surgical Extraction and green for land ramp (Sylvan Scrying or Crop Rotation). It's important to have a good finisher in this kind of deck, which can easily be a set of Wurmcoil Engines for modern or 4 Vampire Hexmages and 4 Dark Depths with Not of This World support for legacy. Abrupt Decay or Maelstrom Pulse will be important additions based on whether you need hard removal or not, I would highly suggest the former if your meta is competitively fast and has dirty blue players.
Many legacy and modern STAX decks go for a full artifact plan (often called mono brown) which is very strong but a hard investment $ wise. This version is the cheaper path, focusing on ramping up for a win condition with Elvish Spirit Guides, Lotus Petals and land search along the lines of the ramp cards I mentioned above while removing, disabling, and forcing discards. If your win condition is a land Dark Depths being the best example, then cards like Thespian's Stage and Crop Rotation gain immense value as they can become or search up niche items like Wasteland, Bojuka Bog, or even a Sejiri Steppe to give the Marit Lage or a Wurmcoil Engine the evasion it needs to kill.
I hope this was helpful, for more 60 card stax advice I would look at the site MTGtop8 or look up "mono brown stax" for other examples. Finding specific Golgari ones can be difficult so I tried to give you as much advice as I could.

Why didn't you just update your Spring Into Death deck list? There's only like 2 cards different, haha.
Now on to the real meat:
Mikaeus, the Unhallowed Combo
- Turn 1: Play a one drop ramp creature.
- Turn 2: Play Buried Alive and fetch Mike and Triskelion.
- Turn 3: Play Victimize, bring Mike and Trike out and ping infinitely to win.
Or tutor for Defense of the Heart and win the turn after you cast it.
Necrotic Ooze Combo
- Play Buried Alive or Survival of the Fittest.
- Grab and put Triskelion and Phyrexian Devourer into the graveyard, and get Necrotic Ooze into play.
- Make sure Necrotic Ooze gets out last if using Survival to tutor them.
- Remove all cards from your library to burn opponent(s) for the CMC of all cards in your library.
Once it's out, the only thing that can interrupt this is Split Second since you can respond by adding and removing counters.
Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord Combo
This requires some knowledge of how the stack works.
- Exile cards from your library until Phyrexian Devourer's ability is put on the stack.
- In response to the ability, continue exiling cards to beef him up more.
- Still before allowing the sacrifice to resolve, sack him to Jarad to smack your opponents for a ton of damage, similarly to the aforementioned Ooze-combo.
Colorless Mana Combo
- Have/get Ashnod's Altar in play.
- Play Nim Deathmantle.
- Play Grave Titan, pop up two 2/2 tokens.
- Sack the two tokens to Altar, then sack Titan to get a total of six .
- Use 4 of that to make Deathmantle grab Titan back and get you two more tokens
Repeat this as many times as desired, netting 2 colorless mana every loop.

I would rethink the lands that come in tapped. Bojuka Bog could be replaced with Tormod's Crypt. Keldon Megaliths is not good enough to include if it's keeping you from that T1 drop. You want to be super speedy here.
Have you thought about Surgical Extraction or Extirpate to break those combos after your Thoughtseize? These are great sideboard cards, though if you're mainboarding Thoughtseize, they might be worth mainboarding as well.

@Ragglesnatch So far I haven't had a too much trouble taking care of graveyard hate. I feel that I have tuned the deck well against most generalized threats. Sure, a Bojuka Bog can be annoying but I can recover with alternate win cons and if that game has gone on long enough to where I cannot than that's most likely due to poor piloting on my part. Did you have a critique you wanted to offer with your comment?
Krosan Grip is slow and clunky compared to Nature's Claim so it's rarely seen when I play. An opponent could target Pattern of Rebirth but I wouldn't be playing it without an infinite sac engine already out so I would be able to sac the creature in response to start my combo anyway. Other options I see are Altar of Dementia which isn't my primary infinite sac to grab or mana rocks but 2G is a hefty price to play for a mana rock.

I like a lot about the deck and I don't feel like there is a lot of input needed on the creature part - that is pretty straight forward. However... I would like to offer some suggestions for the rest:
There are no wraths in the deck. I would try to get my hands on a Damnation after the reprint in MM17. If you want to go more budget, you could try Blasphemous Act and definitely In Garruk's Wake. Decree of Pain is also very interesting for the deck. Since you might probably try to avoid killing your own stuff, you could also go more heavily on groud-wraths like Earthquake, Subterranean Tremors or anything in that flavor. Having around 5 wraths in the deck could really make it a lot better.
I would cut some of the expensive cards with only minor impact in your specific list like Chancellor of the Dross and the Sorin-Cards - even though they are super flavorful :)
Lastly I think your mana is over-fixed and comes into play tapped to often. Things like the gain-lands as well as the fast-land are actually not that good in commander if you are just two-colour. I would recommend sticking with the ones that come into play untapped always. Once you are in only two colours there is not shortage of them. There is the BR-Odysse-Filterland (Forgot the name), The Painland and also any other fetchland that finds either Mountain or Swamp. The only tapped lands I really would run is the Ravnice-Bounce-Land and the temple. Also maybe cut Mortuary Mire for Bojuka Bog.
That would be my suggestions :)
