Probably Ghoultree . You may also want to consider Mikaeus, the Unhallowed with your Woodfall Primus due to the undying and persist triggers counteracting each other for infinite. There is also Bonehoard that is a living weapon that functions just like Nighthowler .

One exception would be a new zombie token made by the Amass ability. The way the ability works, the 0/0 token is created, then the counters from Amass are placed on it, so Ezuri would see a 0/0 enter the battlefield. The only reason the zombie token isn't also put into the graveyard is because state-based actions are not checked during the resolution of an ability, so by the time Amass is done and SBAs are checked, the zombie token already has its counters.
Same with Living Weapon creatures (like the token made by Bonehoard ). The 0/0 enters the battlefield, then the equipment is attached to it, keeping it from dying due to SBAs.

You seem to be running two copies of Voltaic Key ... I don't think that's allowed in EDH.
If you're playing Mono-Blue good stuff, I highly suggest Mystic Remora as a source of early card advantage.
In mono-blue, you might want to consider Back to Basics .
I don't think you should run Bonehoard , because your general counters the first equip activation.
Strip Mine is useful as a 1-of effect to take out The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale or other obnoxious lands. I don't think you need the Wasteland as well; you may have more luck with just a basic Island , especially if you choose to run Back to Basics .
Consecrated Sphinx is good as a value blue card. The card advantage is just nuts.
Good luck with deck building!

Glissa, the Traitor was my first Budget Commander League deck.
I primarily built it, without infinite combos, to participate in this league.
I really enjoy the First Strike + Deathtouch, it's an amazing combination.
It was originally a Modular build, around Birthing Pod , then it slowly transitioned into a primarily deck, now I'm trying to move toward more drawing to be able to ramp lands out to have more consistency with Mind Slaver .
Because of the restriction on budget Mtggoldfish.com at $49.58, so it evolves and changes as the prices of cards shift.
Currently, it's core strengths:
Control, sometimes I control the creatures (effectively) of all 3 opponents at the same time. When I get an Executioner's Capsule lock it can be pretty fun.
Recursion, it's good, gets the Artifacts recurring and utilized properly can prosper
No infinite combo, most of my other Budget Commander League decks have build in infinite combos (eg. Brago, King Eternal , Alesha, Who Smiles at Death ) or one shot kills with damage / commander damage ( Heartless Hidetsugu , Animar, Soul of Elements ).
I found ramping into the 10 mana required to recur the Mind Slaver was too slow (1 hour time limit on Budget league games), so instead of just increasing ramp (through artifacts), I've increased the draw. ( Ohran Viper for example)
Damage output, was good at keeping creatures off the board, but didn't have enough offense to do 3 players x 40 damage in the 1 hour, plus I was mitigating other players ability to damage each other. This is what led to the addition of Bonehoard , Nighthowler cards. I lost Blood Artist due to it's price escalating, which sucked, it's key, but I've added Poison-Tip Archer , which is no Blood Artist but he also has Deathtouch and Reach, plus instead of 1 opponent, he hits all opponents.
Glissa, the Traitor is still one of my favorite commanders, she has her strengths, has her weaknesses, she doesn't overload on abilities like Infect (which she could), so I very much enjoy playing her. Golgari () doesn't have enough combos to play cEDH, but in a Budget league, she is an excellent deck.
I have been trying to more move towards Deathtouch as well wherever I can as well, since it kind of plays towards that.
I've been playing this deck for over 4+ years, and never dismantled, only changed as the ebs and flows of the prices increased. If she was $100, she could be much more lethal.

It is a fun theme, for sure. Since you've put Ramos as the commander, an on-theme card you might want is Dragon's Hoard . Fixing and a cantrip as soon as you cast Ramos? Yes, please. Bonehoard and Kothophed, Soul Hoarder are both good and on-theme, too.
Trash for Treasure and Treasure Nabber could be good if you incorporate an artifact theme, and if you want to go deeper on the graveyard, Treasure Cruise goes well with Trash For Treasure and Bonehoard if you want to fill the graveyard.
Faithless Looting is always good, and Looter il-Kor is a pet card of mine. Merfolk Looter is okay, as well. Smuggler's Copter might be stretching the theme, but Thada Adel, Acquisitor is both flavorful and fits the theme and an artifact subtheme.
It's not a great mana rock, but Gold Myr helps you splash white, and the flavor is spot-on, same for Silver Myr . Secrets of the Golden City is an underrated commander card, and you shouldn't have much trouble turning on the city's blessing. Again, if you put in some graveyard shennanigans and looting, Tasigur, the Golden Fang is as greedy as they come. Debtors' Knell goes well with graveyards and control, too.
Villainous Wealth just oozes flavor.
Increasing Ambition is pretty good, especially if you're going for a combo finish.

Theres a lot of slots in your deck that i think are just very flexible. A lot of cheap cards do different things. All about playstyle. I love it. I have a similar build with skithiryx and ob as well. I would actually cut the lili veil just from exp she is amazing in competitive formats but commander is not her suit unless built specifically around her.
