Demonic Tutor Discussion

Being that you're more of a budget player I don't know how much my input you are willing to take, but, if you're willing to splurge then I would suggest some tutors like Demonic Tutor, Diabolic Intent, Vampiric Tutor, and then cheap tutors like Diabolic Tutor and Diabolic Revelation.
Other than that this list looks fairly consistent for your budget and player base. Playtest and see what happens =]

Looks a bit like a combo based deck with those extra combat phases. Maybe play some tutors like Demonic Tutor or Vampiric Tutor. If you're on a budget, Diabolic Tutor and Razaketh's Rite are also decent options.
I'd also recommend you playing extra turn cards like Time Stretch just so you can cascade more bigger spells. Hope this helps!!

Add Essence Flux. It's a synergistic card by itself, and by adding it in, Dualcaster Mage goes Infinite all by itself if you have 8 mana and copying some sort of black Tutor. (Diabolic Tutor, Demonic Tutor, etc).
Both are qualities of cards that are worth inclusion: good by itself, and combos off.

Cards to remove would be something I guess would depend on what cards matter for your playgroup, but a couple things I can see right off the top, you have a decent number of tribal or color-based anthem effects, which would mean if you're intending to use Skullclamp on the 1/1 creatures that Edgar makes from the command zone, you might not be able to use the clamp alone to sac them for card draw making it a slightly less useful card depending on your board state.
Additionally, Open the Armory only has three targets in your entire deck, one of them being the Skullclamp I just mentioned, so possibly that could be replaced as well, or if you want to keep a tutor, change it out for a Demonic Tutor so you can get anything, including the equipment if you need.

I LOVE YOUR DECK!! +1 from me!
Thoughts on Trading Post and Mirage Mirror? I use the post to stop my artifacts from getting exiled, make tokens to block with and/or sacrifice the token for artifact recursion. Lastly the token can be used for a Contamination lock. Mirage mirror is just CRAZY versatility which I think can serve this deck quite well.
What is your plan to deal with artifacts and enchantments? From a glance, all I see if Karn. I usually find All Is Dust, Nevinyrral's Disk, Ugin, the Spirit Dragon, and Oblivion Stone can help with this (albeit at risk of getting rid of your stuff as well).
What are your thoughts of Rings of Brighthearth for the deck? I don't know about your meta's rules for infinite combos, but you can get infinite black mana with Coffers + Urborg + Deserted temple + A couple more lands + Rings.
Also if you are running the leyline you might want to run Helm of Obedience if you like destroying people's will to play magic.

Welcome to Grixis Control! As a lifelong fan of Grixis control I can say you have a pretty decent deck list. However, I do have a few suggestions to offer.
I see you are running Exquisite Blood. Since you run Venser's Journal, I would also suggest running Sanguine Bond as a way to kill your opponents faster. Additionally, I would consider Necropotence for added card advantage and it partners nicely with the journal.
You seem to run a lot of top deck manipulation effects in Brainstorm, Ponder, Preordain, Sleight of Hand and Read the Bones. I would recommend cutting some or all of those for tutors like Vampiric Tutor, Demonic Tutor, Mystical Tutor or even some of the budget friendlier options such as Diabolic Revelation, Diabolic Tutor, and Dark Petition. Tutoring is a lot more effective for control in the commander environment since you are dealing with a 99 card singleton deck. If you want top deck manipulation I would suggest adding Sensei's Divining Top.
Lastly, I have a couple suggestions for your mass and targeted removal. I would definitely add Damnation to the list if it fits the budget. Additionally, Decree of Pain is wonderful in a control build where removal and card advantage are key. With this card you net both. You may also want to consider artifact board removal such as Nevinyrral's Disk and Oblivion Stone. For instant speed single target removal I recommend Terminate, Hero's Downfall and Crosis's Charm for added flexibility.
I hope you enjoy playing Grixis Control!
