I would cut 1 Noxious Gearhulk you don't want to draw multiple of those in the early game.
Thrashing Brontodon can alway sac itself targeting Journey if necessary. The additional stats make it a lot nicer in case you don't draw Journey - T2 Channeler Initiate into T3 Brontodon is a lot better then T3 Manglehorn with no targets. Being able to target enchantments might be quite important. The Brontodon also survives Yahenni's Expertise, which is very nice. But ...
... this deck abuses the land side of Journey to Eternity a lot more then the front side, which worries me a bit. A lot of decks that can afford it, will most probably run a few Field of Ruin. And with multiple double black and double green mana costs I don't see you run some to counter theirs. If a lot of decks run it, you might need to switch the Brontodon to the worse Manglehorn, just so you can run some Ruins.

There's a lot of really nice incidental synergies in this deck. Doomed Dissenter in particular works really well with Plague Belcher as a thing to dump neg 1 tokens onto and also trigger the secondary drain ability. Perfect 2 drop.
If you want to lean more into etb triggers perhaps Supernatural Stamina is worth considering?
As for the Manglehorn and Thrashing Brontodon thing, I agree with wakawakawaka it's a better fit imo and still has synergy. It can sacrifice itself so the 4 toughness really isn't anything to worry about.
4 toughness will also really help you against aggro decks.
You have about 20 other creatures that will die easily to counters or Yahenni's Expertise not to mention Yahenni, Undying Partisan himself. So I don't really think it'll be a problem however its something worth play testing to get right.
As for Golden Guardian personally I don't think its a great fit for this deck in particular. Has no sacrifice outlets, no etb, 4 toughness, defender and doesn't even go to the graveyard due to transform. It would fit much better in a deck like Aristocrats.
That being said it fits better here than in most other decks.

If you maybe want to make the sacrificing a little more consistent and focus more on the Bloodthrone Vampire and Rite of Consumption plan, maybe include more creatures like Myr Sire that replace themselves. Cards like Doomed Dissenter, Carrier Thrall and Sultai Emissary are all fine options and allow for two sacrifices with one creature. Maybe replace the Perilous Myr and Tattered Mummy with these options, as although those creatures do hurt the opponent, committing fully to just bloodthrone-riting someone out should make it so you don't need the extra damage. Hope this helps in some way, really like the deck!

I'd say your sideboard should be
Also in your mainboard I'd personally change the 3x Nest of Scarabs to 3x Throne of the God-Pharaoh. Doing that you'll get a bit more value out of your creatures swinging/crewing in each turn. Going wide isn't really something you'd need from the nest, but it combos well with the throne if you can get a bunch of insects out.
Replace the 2 Vicious Conquistador and 2 Festering Mummy for 4x Night Market Lookout. The lookout is just really good at crewing the harvester, and it drains rather than just dealing damage. In this deck it gives you more value than the conquistador in the long run.
Then I'd replace the other 2 Festering Mummy for 2 Doomed Dissenter. Dissenter can take the -1/-1 counters from Plague Belcher and becomes a bigger creature which you can put more counters on if you want. Slightly more efficient than the mummy in that regard.
Overall though, the deck seems pretty sweet
