So here are a few suggestions to make the deck a bit more versatile.
(also i dont know how to make stuff get highlighted in comments so this may be difficult to decipher)
!) although muldrotha has recursion built in its always good to have more. I would suggest adding a Sepulchral Primordial because it has good abusable effect and some other re-animator effects. Also don't relay to much on your commander's effect for recursion its always good to have other methods encase people keep removing her or do other things to her. - Some good ones would be Animate Dead and Phyrexian Delver, both these you can re use with muldrotha also. The Eldest Reborn should also be a mainboard because its removal and can be recursion. The mending is also good even if it shuffles your graveyard away as you can build back easily I think. Deadbridge Chant is also good. - Adding some sac outlets would also be helpful to abuse some triggers as well, Ashnods Alter is a good option or Hell's Caretaker.
2) more removal i think is needed a Bone Shredder and Ravenous Chupacabra would be good additions. - Also don't be afraid to have more instants and sorcerie's there are many creature etbs that can return those such as Eternal Witness she would be great. Adding some good ramps spells would be good or other removal effects like Krosan Grip and board wipes like Crux of Fate or if you can afford it Damnation.
3) cards that don't do enough. I think a few of the cards don't do enough even if they can be recurred easily so the below i would suggest replacing thees cards i also have a suggestion for a possible replacement for a few of them or you can use suggestions from above:
- Acidic Slime ->Caustic Caterpillar cheaper to use for same effect, land target isn't used very often
- Baleful Strix -> Disciple of Bolas (more draw plus life gain, also allows you to reuse etb affects from dead creatures.
- Bane of the Living
- Mystic Snake -> Corpse Augur
- Vampire Hexmage
- Mind Slaver -> doesn't do enough in multiplayer
- Roil Elemental -> fun card, but devotion seems high for a three color deck
- All the planes walkers, I don't think any of them fit the theme or do much i would run a deaths majesty lilliana but nothing else comes to mind for this deck
Other stuff: Don't forget that Panharmonicon does not help landfall effects, it only helps if a Creature or artifact etb

Well Shamanic Revelation is good but I'd rather have Corpse Augur, Disciple of Bolas, Slithermuse, Krav, the Unredeemed, maybe Rishkar's Expertise, etc because it can over draw (which can fill the graveyard), and creatures can be reanimated again and again. Grisly Salvage, Tracker's Instincts, and Sultai Ascendancy seem like weaker cards, I'd rather want to ramp, over draw, or remove stuff. Overrun or Lord of the Accursed could be replaced with creatures like Mindshrieker, Kessig Cagebreakers, Beastmaster Ascension, Thunderfoot Baloth, maybe Overwhelming Stampede. Concordant Crossroads and Balthor the Defiled also seem like weaker cards, it will probably benefit other decks more, and BUG reanimator decks can afford to be selfish. I would also replace Splinterfright, as it could be 0/0 on curve, and isn't as strong as the golgari troll or nyx weaver.
I haven't tested this deck yet, so these suggestions might not suffice, but I hope it inspired you a bit. And I have a similar deck (Reanimator's Wet Dream: Sidisi Edition), so checking that out might also help your deck stronger.
Hope this helps

I run a black oath deck as my pet mono-black deck, he's a great commander with a lot of versatility. Here's a couple cards that might be worthwhile. I like Bloodghast but personally I run Endless Cockroaches just because it's way cheaper and kinda funny. Consuming Vapors is a pretty good way to weed out the board and gain life in the process. Behold the Beyond is a pretty good tutor despite it's cost, and Diabolic Revelation can be a win-con depending on how hard you ramp. I would cut Cellar Door because it's too expensive and unreliable. Stronghold Assassin is a cheaper option in comparison to Attrition and Murder might do you a bit better than Premature Burial. Anowan, the Ruin Sage is good for group sac as is Magus of the Abyss. Archfiend of Depravity helps keep your opponent's board state low. I like Corpse Harvester and Corpse Augur as well. Personally, I'd cut Bloodline Keeper Flip because for his price he isn't worth it because this isn't a vampire tribal deck. Hell's Caretaker and Doomed Necromancer are good for recursion. Fleshbag Marauder is worthwhile too I think for group sac. I'm also a big fan of Palace Siege and Oversold Cemetery for passive recursion. Flesh Carver has also won me a lot of games, the intimidate is very powerful. I'd consider running Westvale Abbey Flip as well, potentially a win-con. Shade's Form and Pestilence are also pretty good enchantments. I would substitute Sorin Markov for Torgaar, Famine Incarnate, he's a sac outlet as well as a big body and you can recur his effect and even use it to bring yourself back up to 20 life. Infernal Offering is also a pretty useful card in my experience. Maybe consider Alhammarret's Archive too if you want to make your card draw and life gain more impactful. Those are just a few suggestion, hope it's helpful!! Mono-black is my passion haha

I would recommend Anguished Unmaking , Bitterblossom , Blessing of Leaches , Blood Scrivener , Bloodgift Demon , Boon of Erebos , Coa Ren, Wei Commander , Corpse Augur , Cruel Tutor (Actually, any of the tutor cards). Be sure to include Embargo. Some more are Grinning Demon , Hoarder's Greed , Kothoped, Soul Hoarder. Just suggestions.

No. The Scry 1 is mediocre compared to how huge feeder can get in this build. Additionally Seer doesnt win with mikeaus, the unhallowed & Puppeteer Clique while Feeder does. Yahenni was never a consideration. 3 mana vs 1 mana is a major deal, as is not being able to sacrifice itself like the Feeder can. The Feeders primary purpose is to come down early & Flip Liliana, while also not being a dead draw in the late game.
No. The double black casting cost is much worse in the early game where many of my early ramp is cards like Sol Ring, Mana Crypt, & Ancient Tomb, and I need to spend 2 Black on Liliana. Additionally Nighteyes has singlehandedly won me enough games that I would never consider this swap.
No. Disciples biggest selling point is that its a sacrifice outlet that can flip Liliana on curve the turn after shes played.
Necromancy in place of Animate Dead (1 extra mana for a flash option).
Both Necromancy & Dance of the Dead are great reanimate spells, but I didnt need that many Animate Deads & I chose the option that required the least mana investment. If you value the more expensive Flash mode of Necromancy or the +1/+1 of Dance theyre fine options, just not the version I preferred.
Im not really sure what Id want him for. I mean, yes, he recurs Waste Not & spells, but hes super slow, super clunky, & Legendary so Liliana cant -X him.
Im eventually selling my left Kidney for a Chains of Mephistopheles, and Im told selling both kidneys will result in my death, so the odds I ever own a Bazaar are so low I havent bothered to even think about whether itd be worth including.
I prefer it when my Tutors always work.
Great Card that I ran for a long time, but eventually cut to make room for other cards. May find its way back into the deck someday.
Torment of Hailfire (discard)
Why? Im not a big Mana deck, my Xs will not be that large, and people will just choose to eat the damage. The reason Death Cloud is so good is because an early Death Cloud for X = 3-6 after flipping Liliana in the first three turns is game ending. An Early Torment makes my opponents go k, take 12.
Kokusho for extra drainlife.
If he wasnt Legendary Id play him.
Vindictive Lich (discard)
Im not sure why I would play this. This card is pretty bad.

Hello! I like your deck and thus have a few questions:
Did you consider the following cards? :
- Viscera Seer and/or Yahenni, Undying Partisan in place of Carrion Feeder.
- Withered Wretch in place of Nezumi Graverobber.
- Corpse Augur in place of Disciple of Bolas.
- Necromancy in place of Animate Dead (1 extra mana for a flash option).
- Xiahou Dun, the One-Eyed
- Bazaar of Baghdad
- Diabolic Intent
- Phyrexian Reclamation
- Torment of Hailfire (discard)
- Kokusho for extra drainlife.
- Vindictive Lich (discard)
What is your strategy against decks filled with artifacts or enchantments if they lay their cards before your manage to discard them? I don't see any good wipe against these strategies.
Same for graveyard shenanigans decks, Nezumi seems too slow against them.
