Golgari Germination would be a better slot in than Recurring Nightmare, Tukatongue Thallid would be a decent 1 drop to throw in. Creakwood Liege would be better than the slum reaper.Tribute to the Wild would be good artifact and enchantment removal Victimize would be good and Mycoloth

What about Creakwood Liege?? Another token generator and helps buffs faeries and plant tokens. Not worth a spot?

My main suggestion for making this deck more effective is prioritizing. Your deck will run much more consistently if you have less 1 ofs and putting 3 or 4 of cards that really help your deck, so you're more likely to draw into them when you need them.
As for some suggestions of things you don't have yet, I can tell you like casual, so I won't get too in-depth with super-competitive combos and things. If you like Ring of Xathrid, consider Ring of Kalonia. If you have both on a 2-color creature like Lord of Extinction, the ability will stack and it will grow even faster.
On the subject of 2-color creatures, I really like Creakwood Liege for this deck, he'll boost all your creatures and make even more creatures to boost. His ability will also stack for 2-color creatures, giving them +2/+2. Baloth Null is also a solid budget card. Works as a big creature, and gets back some of the creatures you're sacrificing.
I don't think Predator's Gambit will help you much, because in testing I usually had several creatures out, but there are plenty of solid enchantments to replace it with like Gift of the Deity or Aspect of Gorgon.

Mono black deckbuilder's toolbox is my big list of fun cards for mono-black. Profane Command is very powerful in lists like this and a very underrated card. Fatal Push is a no-brainer in my meta. Beseech the Queen can be very helpful if you want to run a 'silver bullets' type sideboard. I've had some fun testing Creakwood Liege/Bitterblossom/Bad Moon as a devotion list, especially as they move Gifted Aetherborn out of bolt range. Mimic Vat is amazingly powerful not just in the 'I have a killspell and get your creature' way, but also for disrupting graveyard shenanigans. Pithing Needle(plainswalker hate) and Ratchet Bomb(token/clutch enchantment hate) for similar reasons. I prefer Sadistic Sacrament to Lost Legacy, but I understand the choice.

First of all, a commander deck must have exactly 100 cards (including your commander), and you have 106
I suggest you remove some lands, as that takes up almost 50% of your deck
Now, if I were to build a Mazirek deck, I would definitely go with a heavy token strategy, as tokens are relatively easy to produce (especially in Golgari), expendable, and given enough time and resources, can easily win you the game.
So, with that in mind, I suggest you remove these:
-1 Sedge Scorpion, Typhoid Rats, Tormented Soul, Pharika's Chosen, Blisterpod, Black Cat, Elderscale Wurm, Nylea, God of the Hunt, Ghoultree, Gray Merchant of Asphodel, Dark Betrayal, Traveler's Amulet, Kheru Dreadmaw, Hunter's Ambush, Commencement of Festivities, Pulse of Murasa, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Bonds of Mortality, Karametra's Acolyte, Baloth Null
And possibly replace some of them with some of these:
Mycoloth, Ashnod's Altar, Grave Pact, Viscera Seer, Avenger of Zendikar, Yahenni, Undying Partisan, Animation Module, Hardened Scales, Mind Slash, Orochi Hatchery, It That Betrays, Creakwood Liege, Vulturous Zombie, Catacomb Sifter, Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder, Falkenrath Noble, Blood Artist, Necrogenesis, Deathreap Ritual, Attrition, Perilous Forays, Korozda Guildmage, Reaper of the Wilds, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Abhorrent Overlord, Grim Haruspex, Yavimaya Elder, Golgari Germination
That's all I can think of off of the top of my head

First of all thank you all for commenting! I really appreciate you taking the time to suggest things to help improve my deck!!!
Mj3913 Yavimaya Elder looks like a great choice! I think i'm going to run Hardened Scales for now, the cheaper (mana) card seems like a good play early and something tricky to play later when i'm setting up an alpha attack. I also hope the new card Winding Constrictor ends up cheaper (price) than Hardened Scales so i can make that swap
Triton 1. Putrefy vs Shriekmaw? Putrefy is much cheaper (price) and is an instant so it's got a leg up, but Shriekmaw can be more easily reanimated and has evasion. Any thoughts on which to run?2. Blood Artist is a little of out the budget right now. I run 15 cards that cost more than a dollar
(Budget Breakers) Show
seb9011 1. I had just recently swapped out Viscera Seer for Carrion Feeder for budget reasons, do you know of any other cheap (price) sac outlets?2. Creakwood Liege and Ophiomancer are also outside the budget, though they are definitly good cards that i would want to run with no budget3. I'll pose you the same question, Putrefy or Shriekmaw? evoke is a clever way of triggering Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest that i hadn't thought of, though it is much pricier.4. I really like reanimation effects, especially because golgari has soo many good ones! I'm hoping Phyrexian Reclamation and Strands of Night provide the heavy lifting i need from budget cards.5. I get what you're saying about value cards, and i would argue that grave titan is on theme with my deck though sadly out of budget. Sidisi, Undead Vizier also falls into that category unfortunately. 6. Krosan Grip is fighting Tribute to the Wild for a slot. i'm running alot of artifact and enchantment destruction attached to my creatures so i'm inclined to the cheaper (both!) option. 7. Savra, Queen of the Golgari is a cool option but again i'm running with a very strict budget (another theme I'm discovering lol) and she needs the right circumstances to be good. Grave Pact effects are super good in this deck some maybe i look into another, situational one.8. Thanks again for the time, suggestions and thoughts!!!

So obviously I don't know your deck better than you do so none of my suggestion will be perfect, but here we go. I enjoy the idea that you have going on with From Beyond but the deck needs easier ways to sac creatures. Viscera Seer will allow you to sac creatures at instant speed (in case for example someone wants to kill a creature just sac in response) and lets you scry (which is cute). Creakwood Liege is a card that I would enjoy but I understand why some wouldn't - it's slow, but being able to pump out easy creatures to sac is helpful and Ophiomancer provides a similar effect and a turn earlier.
With this deck, evoke is your friend and Shriekmaw does the trick nicely.
What I love about Mazirek is that she has an obvious theme with sacrificing creatures but she also opens up easily to several sub theme ideas. My personal favorite would be reanimate effects. Animate Dead is a first though and Reanimate, while costing a bit more, does the job nicely. With this sub theme you don't have to be afraid to sacrifice your biggest or most important creature. Buried Alive is another card that would fit nicely with this sub theme and even without you can get creatures that brings itself back such at Reassembling Skeleton (which I saw you have)) Bloodsoaked Champion. Another easy (and obvious) sub theme is +1/+1 counters. Corpsejack menace is ideal here and so is anything with devour, but personally I enjoy reanimate :).
Commander has become very much so about combo and great interaction but I also feel simply value cards should see more attention. Grave Titan I understand may be hard to fit in strict budget lists but is still a card that should be under consideration. Grave Titan is really just a good card on its own but on top of that he creates sac-able creatures and has an etb trigger which could pair well with reanimate effects. Sidisi, Undead Vizier is another card that falls under this category. She is good on her own but because of your commander you can abuse here ability even more. Also Krosan Grip is one of the best artifact / enchantment removal in commander and is very cheap. Also, Savra, Queen of Golgari is possibly worth testing. I know she really only works with creature sacrificing (plus she isn't as much of a friend with scions) but still she could perform well. I'm not saying she HAS to go in the deck but is something worth considering.
Hope this all helped! The deck is looking sweet.
