Okay so here's a bunch of suggestions that fit Gyruda's requirement and then some things to then take out.
Put in: Arcane Signet, Wake the Dead, Gravespawn Sovereign, Embalmer's Tools, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Disciple of Bolas, Forgotten Creation, Notion Thief, Oversold Cemetery, Skull Prophet, Clever Impersonator, Garruk Relentless Flip, The Cauldron of Eternity, Sire of Stagnation, and Razaketh, the Foulblooded. The cards in your maybeboard seem good too.
In terms of land, there are a lot of cheap options to include that will make a three color deck a lot better: Choked Estuary, Sunken Hollow, Botanical Sanctum, Blooming Marsh, Fetid Pools, Hissing Quagmire, Drowned Catacomb, Hinterland Harbor, Woodland Cemetery, Bad River, Ash Barrens, Dakmor Salvage, Exotic Orchard, Witch's Cottage, and stuff like that. Replace the guildgates and bounce lands and a few basics with those if you can.
And lastly if you want to run the petitioners then you should put more of them in, otherwise having just 8 won't do a whole lot for you most of the time other than for fun.

I actually really strongly considered Elixir of Immortality . The swing point for me was that Cranial Archive has the potential to shut down graveyard or sac decks in a mirror match. I also haven’t been able to get my hands on any copies of Elixir. Barren Moor looks interesting though. I’ll have to play test it and see how it does. Thanks for the suggestions!

Swapping 2x Cranial Archive and 2x Swamp for 2x Elixir of Immortality and 2x Barren Moor would give similar effects cost wise, but add 10 life for correction if needed and you keep the Elixir. My mind works like, yea Moor ETB, but the 1 card draw + Elixir being 1 cheaper would even itself out most games. Regardless, the deck works very well, it looks to win fast and no changes are needed. Solid deck sir!

anything that 'stores a draw' seems like a good inclusion. The Mind Stone and Commander's Sphere life sounds gud, but maybe even Chromatic Sphere and Chromatic Star might be worth your time to get your hand artificially empty quickly, and be able to sippy cup your cards back to hand at your leisure. Those might be extreme examples, but certainly anything with utility like Cranial Archive or Relic of Progenitus seems aces. Hedron Archive , Magnifying Glass , Pyrite Spellbomb , Scrabbling Claws , Silent Gravestone are a few other reasonable effects in that style.
