Legendary Creature — Elder Demon
When Demonlord Belzenlok enters the battlefield, exile cards from the top of your library until you exile a nonland card, then put that card into your hand. If the card’s converted mana cost is 4 or greater, repeat this process. Demonlord Belzenlok deals 1 damage to you for each card put into your hand this way.

Get rid of Demonlord Belzenlok. Exiling your cards is not what you want to do with Izoni. Loyal Guardian is kind of meh, so I'd drop it for something that better fits what you want to do. I think I'd ditch Necrotic Ooze for something more consistent, like Murder or Go for the Throat, or Naturalize for artifact/enchantment removal.
Burnished Hart and Tortured Existence would be good additions to make. Tortured Existence basically allows you to turn your graveyard into a toolbox. Brawn is a creature you want to put into your graveyard, along with a card like Filth if you can find ways to abuse it (Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, Blanket of Night, even Mystic Compass). I think I would personally run fewer cards like Cultivate and Overgrowth for more mana dorks, like Blood Pet and Blood Vassal, who work well with your graveyard theme, and Birds of Paradise and even Elves of Deep Shadow. These mana dorks help your curve out with early drops, and they can be sac fodder down the road if you need it. Good cards for sacrifice decks include Dictate of Erebos and Grave Pact. A card like Fecundity provides even more card draw.
Hope these help you out!

I'm not a big fan of Champion of Dusk with only 5 vampires in the deck. Ok, it makes you draw one if he is by himself but it's a weak effect for a 4/4 5 drop. If you want the draw effect, you can have Dusk Legion Zealot and if you need a big threat well the spot if free for Doom Whisperer and Twilight Prophet that you will add in the future.
Costly Plunder is a way to refund you critter in the late game. Kitesail Freebooter is a nice early drop, flying and prolly better than the rat early. The rat can get rid of the one card the op is holding for 15 turn but still. Demonlord Belzenlok is a big boi. Golden Demise is a brutal wrath against any token based deck. Vraska's Contempt is a must have when Teferi and Karn exist out there.
I hope this list will help you a bit !

I think Demonlord Belzenlok is a bit more competitive than he's given credit for. While to use him effectively it takes a lot of pieces and set-up as well as deck building restrictions, there are ways to make the combo fairly hard to deal with and I think he's a bit more viable than the other casual commanders. Not saying he's amazing or anything but I think a commander that just wins the game (almost) when you play him I think is at least good enough for mid power.

I am really excited to add Doom Whisperer to the deck because the surveil ability will synergize well with Demonlord Belzenlok's ability triggers individually. I have really contemplated running Buried Alive to combo with cards like Living Death, Patriarch's Bidding, Strands of Night, and Rise of the Dark Realms.
Based on the dozens of games I have played with this deck I found that the 4 big reanimator spells mentioned above are usually enough to swing the game into my favor (assuming you aren't playing someone who runs nothing but counter spells). Buried Alive is another way to tutor for strong demons that become easier to get onto the BF from the graveyard vs. hard casting the creatures individually despite the fact that this deck ramps very very well.
Final Parting is a great idea especially since I can tutor for a creature like Razaketh, the Foulblooded or even Gray Merchant of Asphodel along with a reanimation spell, which can be really devastating like you said. I am a big fan of Dark Petition since I almost always have "Spell Mastery", esssentially turning it into another Demonic Tutor. Basically what I am getting at is the following: I have no issue reanimating creatures with where my reanimator package is currently primarily because of all of the tutors.

It's not a bad way to go, kind of why I've always been skittish about running Maralen of the Mornsong. I've been experimenting with Demonlord Belzenlok in my mono-black goodstuff deck. He's got a decent body and the card draw is usually pretty good. In my deck he usually draws around three cards.
