Solemn Simulacrum I know, he's annoying and expensive and in every deck but he RAmPS AND DRAWS AND IS COLOURLESS LIKE BLEH
Pristine Talisman Triggers your life-gain abilities.
Gravestorm MAN that theming
Ob Nixilis Reignited one of THE cheapest walkers around
Krav, the Unredeemed and his partner Regna, the Redeemer can generate card advantage by searching for each other, seem to be on theme (life gain and tokens are both parts of this deck, see your commander for details, but krav specifically lets you draw a shit TON of cards. Also, gives you some sac outlet ability and ridiculously tiny activation cost)
Necropotence this IS a more expensive card and with good reason. But of all the "more expensive card draw" cards i believe it is the LEAST more expensive. Seriously this card blows games out. (SIDENOTE this works SUPER WELL with your axis of mortality, necropotence yourself to 1 in response to the trigger then swap with someone to go right back to 35)
Harvester of Souls Gimme card draw for your creatures. Tax'ing the hell out of the entry to hell.
Actually on-theme cards that are really mean:
Magus of the Abyss There's a REASON people refer to chumping every turn as abyss-ing
Infernal Darkness a card you can probably find for 3$ or less, ruins people's happy fun times (except you)
Call to the Grave See above regarding magyss of the abyss.
Patron of the Nezumi Pay the death tax
World Queller This one's especially spicy cause you can choose a permanent type you DON'T have one of.
Angelic Arbiter A little high on the curve tbh but does make your opponents choose combat or spells
Aura of Silence I really think this is a must-have card for this strat.
Archfiend of Depravity New government law, every player shall have no more than 2 creatures. Communism at work, the government gets as many as it wants.
Magister of Worth A VERY thematic board wipe. (it will ALWAYS be a board wipe)
Cliffhaven Vampire For all those extorts and life linkers.
Leonin Arbiter Seriously punishes decks with greedy manabases and green decks
Aven Mindcensor See Leonin Arbiter
Oathsworn Vampire This guy is great card advantage and a recurrable chump for your "symmetric" forced sacrifice effects
Windborn Muse Better than Baird IMO
Orb of Dreams EVERYTHING is tapped
Utter End Seems to me a better card than Mortify, even if it costs 1 more.
Hushwing Gryff Flash torpor orb fucks SO MANY DECKS
Descent into Madness Although this is only particularly strong if you have a huge draw-engine to keep exiling bad cards from your hand instead of permanents.
False Prophet HOW IS THIS CARD SO CHEAP???
Words of Waste Can be powerful but may require too much tuning of mana/draw to be actually good.
Kataki, War's Wage expensive but powerful effect.
That's all for now. too many options honestly.

The concept of the deck sounds great, I'm tempted to make a deck with the same concept, or just "netdeck" the one you make. Havoc Festival looks good, and it plays along with the idea of not winning, but making your opponent lose because they cannot gain life . But enchantments can get destroyed easily due to things like Naturalize , Dawn to Dusk , Demystify , Decimate , etc. So just so that you have something to also prevent lifegain I would add Erebos, God of the Dead , That is if you're not on a budget. Descent into Madness is also a good card for the concept . I don't really know what cards you're going to use in the deck so it's kind of hard to determine what cards to suggest. I would add Exquisite Blood and Sanguine Bond to lower your opponents health and gain some yourself, but if you're going to add those then you should probably add some lifegain stuff to this deck, such as Disciple of Bolas , Blood Artist , Sorin's Vengeance , Chalice of Life Flip , painful quandry , etc. I also don't know if you're going to be playing casual or competitive, but i'll assume competitive. I'd also add Kaervek the Merciless . Maybe you could throw in Whip of Erebos and a Exsanguinate . Those are all the suggestions I have right now, so uh good luck on making the deck. Again, the concept is really interesting to me so I hope this deck works out for you.

Could be a bit stax-y for your fun requirement but it's not exactly easy to pull off and Descent is super flavourful.

I'm building Lyzolda, the Blood Witch. Instead of playing to win though, I want to play to make my opponents lose. Utilizing cards such as Havoc Festival and Descent into Madness. Please recommend crazy artifacts and chaos cards in Rakdos please. They don't have to be good...they just have to be fun...pretty much exclusively for me. ;p
