Looks good! You might like these: Infernal Genesis , Champion of Stray Souls , Ogre Slumlord , Harvester of Souls , Syr Konrad, the Grim , Grave Betrayal , Gray Merchant of Asphodel , Cauldron of Souls , Desecrated Tomb , Mimic Vat , Xathrid Necromancer .
Also, I hate to burst your bubble, but Carrion has been errata'd; You only sacrifice one creature at the time of casting, you can't sacrifice more than one.

+1 my guy. @Your post
Darkblast is probably playable.
Phyrexian Reclamation is a great way to access your graveyard.
I would remove most of your milling artifacts to make room for some of the above, more draw, more removal, and 4-5 board wipes ( Boompile and Oblivion Stone effects are a must in monoblack). You have strong combos with Syr Konrad and I would focus on drawing/ tutoring into those while you control the board a bit more. With more interaction it'll be less of a glass cannon and more fun to play with and against.

Hey, I saw the deck, and I have some suggestions:
Fungal Plots : Is a good sac outlet to deal damage with Slimefoot that offers card advantage, but also can create some saprolings. I played it in a Saproling Tribal standard deck and it feels very good with Slimefoot.
I think that in the Drain and Gain section you can use Zulaport Cutthroat and Syr Conrad the Grim instead of Epicure of Blood and Falkenrath Noble . The Cutthroat because is more cheap, and Syr Conrad because also can drain when you use Necrogenesis , Whisper, Blood Liturgist , Champion of Stray Souls and Fungal Plots (If you add it)
Winding Constrictor : I saw that a lot of your saproling-makers work with spore counters. With this you will be able to create saprolings faster.
I hope this helped you

He motions toward a shelf nearby; "We carry these as well": Smothering Abomination , Hell's Caretaker , Illusionist's Bracers , Black Market , Pawn of Ulamog , Sifter of Skulls , Dread Return , Bolas's Citadel , Champion of Stray Souls , Desecrated Tomb , Midnight Reaper , Harvester of Souls , Oathsworn Vampire , Sengir Nosferatu

The balance between slow reanimate engines and self reanimating creatures is one that can be tuned with playtesting. I would say it depends on how you want your mana curve to run. I personally prefer low mana curves but you can support big spells with enough ramp if you prefer.

That's a good point actually, I guess I usually start sacing stuff too soon. But yea i'm definitly down with switching out mana rocks for dorks and more ramp, especially since they'll trigger kresh later.
Also are you saying I should just take out the larger creatures that reanimate (like Sheoldred, Whispering One / Champion of Stray Souls ) for creatures with built reanimation (like Bloodghast and Reassembling Skeleton )? If so I like the idea, gives me more room for cool death triggers and maybe more utility.
lol i should probably actually make these changes at some point here, just been kind of busy.

I definitely want to add more death triggers, and the ones you suggested are what I'm looking at next.
I think I'll move towards the reanimate aspect. Something I always wonder though is early game, most good reanimate outlets are usually 4+ mana (things like Hell's Caretaker , Sheoldred, Whispering One and Champion of Stray Souls ) so I feel usually pretty vulnerable early game.
