There is no excuse to not play Dark Ritual in this build.
Secret Salvage is worthless. I’ve attempted it in my own build many of times and it’s not as good as you’d think. Drop it off the Maybe board.

I tried out Secret Salvage once again and was reminded of why I took it out the last time. Being left with all my Shadowborn Apostle in my hand is only good if I can play all or a large portion of them, or have no max hand size. The games rolled out with Edgewalker being killed off shortly after resolution and my life total to low to justify Carnival of Souls to help out in any way. Having to discard so many with no Immortal Servitude available for back up, or Necropotence on the field is an awful feeling.

Usually you want 37-40 ~ in a commander deck (depending on avrage CMC, mana rocks and so on). Im by no means a shadowborn player, but I think 10 are to few. And you most definitive want some more demons like Rune-Scarred Demon , Archfiend of Depravity , Archfiend of Despair , Demonlord Belzenlok and Harvester of Souls to name a few. I also recomend Edgewalker to make your apostels free.
Looking forward to see your deck take form! Welcome to commander!

needs more cleric tribal - I'd ditch the backup Orzhov subtheme ( Basilica Screecher , Crypt Ghast , Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts , & Tithe Taker ) and probably the Regal Bloodlord for some cleric support: Akroma's Devoted , Battlefield Medic , Battletide Alchemist , and Daru Spiritualist come to mind for that. Edgewalker is a must for the colors, and I'd probably ditch the monuments and obilisk of urd for more clerics - Alms Collector and Bygone Bishop give decent card draw, Eight-and-a-Half-Tails , Giver of Runes and Mother of Runes offer amazing protection for your field. Frontline Medic and Selfless Spirit offer indistrucbablity for your own wipes. Sin Collector offers good andi-countermagic / tide-turner removal. High Priest of Penance is just amazing with the recusion this deck should have. Rotlung Reanimator turns all clerics into double duty sac fodder, and Priest of Forgotten Gods , Yawgmoth, Thran Physician , and Whisper, Blood Liturgist are more than happy to supply that role, with Skirsdag High Priest backing them up. and Weathered Wayfarer pulls the same job as Land Tax , but can fetch non-basics, and is a cleric.

Now, my spellbook?
Forced Adaptation : through my time as a magic player, I have been... well, forced to adapt. For my first several years, the only people I had to play with were markedly wealthier than I and knew more about the game, having played with players of a level I did not have access to. I had to get tricky to stand a chance, and tricky I got! Not only that, but counters is one of my favorite archetypes to play, and I have built many a variant over the years (I think 5-8 just on my account), as you’ll see is consistent with several strategies down the line.
Meren of Clan Nel Toth : I tried to four or five different aristocrat decks, which I likely put together and took apart a total of a dozen times or more. Aristocrats is another favorite of mine, though I’ve brewed comparatively few. The one that remains? My Meren brew. She has served me well- so well, in fact, that outside of competitive settings I no longer play her.
Bloodhall Priest : I still remember the day that I laid eyes on a madness deck the first time and thought “being empty-handed can be a good thing?”, and something just connected. I don’t have my madness deck anymore, I sent it to a new player that I got into the game. Hope she’s enjoying it.
Roon of the Hidden Realm : bounce is another one of my favorite strategies, and I’ve never seen a commander who does it like Roon. Who’s got the boons to make you swoon? It’s Roon. It’s Roon.
Vigean Hydropon : represents my current +1 counter deck: my two-headed giant variant. I LOVE this brew, and no one sees the grafts coming.
Zurgo Helmsmasher : represents my current politics deck. Like a couple other strategies, I have thrown everything at the wall to see what sticks with this, and my current edition I call “Zurgo Backswing”, lovingly nicknamed “swing bitch, I dare ya”. I suspect it may be fairly similar to your Queen Marchesa deck, ShutUpMokuba.
Jace, Memory Adept : mill is an archetype near and dear to my heart. My second deck was a mill, and it was terrible, but I knew that one day I would finally mill someone out- that eventually my work would be completed. Well, nowadays I have no mill deck, but I think I might brew one in 2hg- mix in a little pillow fort...
Sygg, River Cutthroat : and finally, one of my favorite commanders ever. This deck is truly a thing of beauty. She has draw for days, removal, spelljack, mill, everything a blue/black player could ask for. I love her dearly.

I love this deck and the lifegain scheme. Consider maybe Edgewalker so that your commander becomes free and replaying your commander each time she dies will remain cheap for a long time. Too, most of your other clerics too will be free to play or cost 1 colorless. Then also think about Victimize in order to replay the ones you sacrifice to your commander's effect. You're running a lot of sacrifice-your-own-creature effects so you'll need ways to get more creatures on the board, not only to sacrifice, but to block opponent attacks you don't want to take. To that end, I'd probably take out Barrier of Bones and maybe look at putting up some flying deathtouch creatures, so that your opponents aren't hitting you and triggering their own win cons in doing so. There's nothing like hiding behind a wall of deathtouch while you drain & lifegain without ever having to attack. :)
