This looks pretty nice. There's a few points, though
Returned Centaur is just weak, especially here. I see what you're trying to do with self-mill, but it's hit and miss as you may hit non-creatures as well.
Filigree Familiar is also weak. Gaining 2 life isn't worth it. Drawing a card is nice, but there must be better ways to do this.
Tree of Perdition doesn't really fit the theme.
Swarm of Bloodflies is less good, imo, then Noosgraff Mob, because a 2/2 flyer for 5 mana isn't great, and it getting bigger slowly each turn isn't worth it.
Tithe booooo! Artifact ramp is better in this deck, I think.
Gamble isn't worth it as you're not making a combo deck. You're in black, so card:Vamperic Tutor is almost strictly better. Unless you want to discard the card... in which case that's still not great.
Disempower isn't great, generally a single target removal spell isn't worth it, especially if they can just cast it again next turn.
Have you considered Dark Deal, if you want to discard cards?

Big fan of reanimator decks.
I would probably consider a bit more control tho, modern is pretty much a turn 4 win format , This deck starts turn 4 so there's that.
I could see Sinister Concoction being really good in here as well.

Well for the deckbuilding process I basically go like this :
- Find a commander that inspires me or that I own to save money (got quite a lot of expensive cards being a Modern player), not paying much attention to the colors tbh.
- Find cards I'd like to play for their effects, whether they follow a common strategy or not.
- Go check what other people built, add the cards I like from there.
- Get lost in the amount of possibilities and switch to another deck.
- Restart the process.
I'm definitely an indecisive person even though I most of the time can help the people around tune their decks to fit the mana curve/mechanics/synergies. The problem is more sticking to a strategy and making it work rather than building the deck.
So I stand between two/three builds and can't choose any one of them because everything seems strong to me.

I literally dont have room to put anything else in. The way this thing runs it does not care what my opponent is doing. Turn 3-4 the pain discard really ramps up fast and I just get massive advantage. With Waste Not on the board it just goes nuts. Dark Deal turn 3 on a turn 2 Liliana's Caress is just brutal.

Delirium Skeins is my favourite discard card, but Whispers of Emrakul works well too. Look at the various 8-rack and budget variants for the most efficient setups- Liliana's Caress/Waste Not/Dark Deal has been a budget staple for a while now.
