With all the added removal though, you might be right. Curious to hear your thoughts!

LevahnTaupe Looks pretty solid. You might want an option to close out games, especially against control where just swinging with a bunch of tokens can be risky thanks to Settle the Wreckage. You can splash a mana or two of pretty much any color so there are plenty of options. Vraska is the most common choice, but you could also run Angel of Invention or even Approach of the Second Sun if you want to stick to two colors.
I would also think about cutting Hour of Revelation from your sideboard. You already have Fumigate as a sweeper and you also have the option of running Bontu's Last Reckoning or Yahenni's Expertise if you need something faster. HoR doesn't hit anything you can't already deal with and it has the nasty downside of destroying your own engine pieces.

Profane Memento is pretty good vs creature heavy decks
Torpor Orb also useful least in my meta vs all the 5c human decks

Just curios, why don't you have any Jade Guardian's? They give +1/+1's and they're hexproof. Also as far as sideboard goes, you definitely want some Heroic Interventions to counter hard removal cards like Fumigate and Bontu's Last Reckoning.

I was running Revel in Riches in my deck and found I was wishing it was a Marionette Master most of the time... and that was when I was playing more removal spells such as Contract Killing and Bontu's Last Reckoning. A big problem being with using Revel in Riches as a wincon is that it is a little redundant seeing as if you have 10 treasures in play at your up keep you will most likely still capable of winning if you have a single land in play and Marionette Master in hand.

Concise list of considerations:
The Rack single target is really crappy in EDH
Wheel of Torture Same effect as The Rack except it hits everyone.
Skullcage Hits all opponents who don't have either 3 or 4 cards in hand.
Raiders' Wake Another Caress/Megrim effect, except this one makes your opponent discard if you attack.
Quest for the Nihil Stone Anyone without a hand gets domed for 5 during their upkeep...seems good.
Bloodchief Ascension Self Explanatory card
Mindcrank This is a great card in a discard centric deck.
Get rid of all of these cards Bog Rats, Carrion Rats, Deathmask Nezumi (it's a nombo with everything you're doing), Drainpipe Vermin, Gutter Skulk, Nezumi Cutthroat, Pestilence Rats, Ravenous Rats, Swarm of Rats, and Typhoid Rats.
Relentless Rats Replace all of the cards removed with these. You are not restricted to a single copy, per EDH rules, because Relentless Rats specifically states that card limitation requirements do not apply to it.
Get rid of anything that is single target discard! Especially Raven's Crime, since you don't have enough lands that you can afford to be ditching them for a single discard.
Add more things that hit everybody, such as Necrogen Mists or are renewable.
Specter's Shroud Might be worth looking into.
You need more board wipes. You have one 9 CMC board wipe with only 32 lands in the deck. The Hyper-geometric distribution doesn't give you very good odds of pulling the lands you need in order to keep the board clear. Consider Bontu's Last Reckoning, Yahenni's Expertise, Crux of Fate (which may work to your favor with all the Dargon decks running around), Damnation is a given but it's pricey, Life's Finale, Kindred Dominance, and Necromantic Selection are all decent options.
Liliana of the Dark Realms is a much better Lili for a deck like this because you need ramp and that Ult is ridiculous plus it combos with...
Let's talk about your mana base for a second...
Thirty two lands? Even for a very cavalier spell slinger deck, that is a very low amount to play. I play a Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest deck on 36 and struggle some times to reach a critical mass of mana/spells. Don't fall into the trap of "I'll cut a land for this cheap spell; it'll be fine." Again, math and probability will not be on your side in the late game, not unless you're willing to invest in Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx or Cabal Coffers. An alternative might be to run Crypt of Agadeem but it's really no substitute for those lands.
Lastly, jam a Bojuka Bog or a Scavenger Grounds or both in there for graveyard hate, along with your choice of Strip Mine, Ghost Quarter, and/or Field of Ruin because if you can't have your Crypt or Coffers, why should they?
Hope this helps, good luck!

You know i have not commented on this deck in a while, just wanted to say this is still my favorite deck in modern to play, it feels like the most authentic "fun police" deck out there, not to mention my love for playing 4 colors and it working so smoothly (well except when i kill myself for colors haha). Thank you for getting back to me about the Bontu's Last Reckoning, i have finally had a chance to use it and i think it works great here with Tasigur, the Golden Fang being a potential 1 drop the proceeding turn (which is what i did... Immediate rage quite on the other side). The only thing i think you need to change though is you need to switch a Overgrown Tomb for a Temple Garden just to flush out your colors for when you fetch. But hey maybe that's just a me thing, do what you think feels best.What do you think of the Hallowed Fountain for an Island? Im still rocking the extra basic right now.
