Thanks for the comments guys! Glad you liked the deck. I really like playing it and it keeps getting more and more consistent every time I tweak it. I really appreciate the suggestions. While I do agree that Blood Pet and Cremate are probably the weakest cards in the deck right now, I really don't want to take out Doomsday because it just wins me the game so consistently. Infernal Contract looks really fun I think that'd be a good fit for this deck, maybe I could use that for my card draw instead of Cremate. Blood Pet really helps me when I'm having a hard time drawing lands. He's basically just a Swamp for me that also triggers Blood Artist and Zulaport Cutthroat when I sacrifice him. I even profit mana when Carnival of Souls in in play because I get one when he enters AND another one when I sacrifice him with his ability. Diabolic Intent looks like a really cool card for this deck too, but for that kind of money I'd probably just get Entombs, because 90% of the time the last card I'm looking for is Gravecrawler, and for one less mana and not having to sacrifice a creature I can just put him in my graveyard, which is where he belongs anyway. That reminds me, do you know of any good 1 drop zombies that I could use to ensure I can always play Gravecrawler? Carrion Feeder was really the only good one I could find and he's incredibly good in this deck because not only can I use him to play Gravecrawler from my graveyard, I can also sacrifice him to him as well (for only 1 mana it seems almost too good to be true). Thanks again for the comments guys. I really appreciate it.

Spawning Pit looks great here. Have you ever tested with Gemstone Array as another mana sink with Ashnod's Altar? Carnival of Souls, Bitterblossom, and Comeuppance might also be fun here. You might also like Karlov of the Ghost Council.

Herald's Horn, Metallic Mimic, Mirror Entity, Butcher of Malakir, Stoneforge Masterwork, Voldaren Pariah Flip, and Viscera Seer come to mind. Settle the Wreckage and/or Comeuppance. Or, if you want to upset two opponents at once, Fight to the Death. Impact Tremors.

Thanks for looking over the deck! Carnival of Souls seems pretty good, but I dont know what to cut for it, and I already have a good amount of cards Im looking to make space for, without much space. Pretty nice card though, and at least a consideration I havent thought of.

I've been thinking of playing Carnival of Souls in a deck like this - thoughts?

hoardofnotions I could cut the Monument pretty easy, my thoughts were since a majority of my creatures are black, most of their mana costs are lowered. It's nice for an aggro deck, but I may cut it.
After thinking about it, Door of Destinies is pretty slow for what it does and has no immediate impact, so I'll cut it for Reconnaissance. Same goes for Well of Lost Dreams, as I'm slowly going away from the life drain part of the deck. I'll cut the latter for Read the Bones.
Bxbx Carnival of Souls looks interesting, and sadly I don't have the money for Urza's Incubator. I may consider Bloodflow Connoisseur from the vampires you've mentioned, I don't really care for those effects too much in EDH but I may change my mind if they prove effective.
Thanks for the suggestions and upvote!
