Search your library for a card and put that card into your graveyard. Then shuffle your library.

Since this is casual, Entomb and Buried Alive are likely your best options for dropping crazy Soulflayer fodder into the yard. Jarad's Orders isn't bad to instantly set up the combo. Traverse the Ulvenwald could do some work as long as you're doing a bit of self mill.
Past that, dredge is a decent mechanic you could use with Stinkweed Imp probably being one of the better choices for Soulflayer. Or just cards that check the top of your library and put the rest in a graveyard like Commune with the Gods or Grisly Salvage.
You might also want to consider some number of cards that can return creatures from the graveyard to re-buy Soulflayers.

Very cool decklist!
Your deck seems really well tuned so my suggestions are pretty minor.
First I'd look at equipment upgrades for your creatures:
Darksteel Plate protects you from your own boardwipes
Boros Charm protection from board wipes and can pump up an aggro gameplan
Argivian Find criminally underrated graveyard recursion
Anguished Unmaking one of the best Orzhov spells out there.
Entomb see above ^^
Toxic Deluge best boardwipe in the game imo, it clears out all the creatures.
Creatures: I like the creatures you have I'd recommend adding a few more big threats, especially if you go the Buried Alive route. Here are a few of my favorites...
Get this card, if you play black you play Necropotence. It's the best card draw spell in the game.

magicthegatheringplayer37 your obviously a troll. This is why I wish T/O had a report user function :/
Anyway, staroceansurfer, the deck looks pretty sweet. Reminds me a lot of my Tasigur, the Golden Fang build - just grind out value and play a bunch of sweet cards in . Since this is Muldrotha specifically, maybe add Wayfarer's Bauble or Font of Fertility as ramp spells that synergize with your commander. However, they are a bit slower than fast mana like signets and Sol Ring, so there is a good argument against them in a faster, reanimator deck. Also, no Entomb? Seems generally better than Buried Alive at the least, since it lets you turn 2 any creature in the deck with Animate Dead. For reanimation spells, Dance of the Dead is another good one. You have to pay to untap the creature, but if that creature is Consecrated Sphinx or Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger, untapping isn't super important.
Also, how good has World Shaper been for you? Obviously you can mill yourself fairly well with Splinterfright, Perpetual Timepiece, Shaper itself, etc, but it doesn't seem like you have a reliable way of getting it killed. You can always just hope someone kills it in combat or point your own removal at it, but that seems inefficient.

Here is a gameplay question for you, what do you search for first when you are trying to end the game. Like already have the table slowed down and you just want to focus on winning fast, what should I search for with Entomb or Demonic Tutor?

Thanks for the comments guys! Glad you liked the deck. I really like playing it and it keeps getting more and more consistent every time I tweak it. I really appreciate the suggestions. While I do agree that Blood Pet and Cremate are probably the weakest cards in the deck right now, I really don't want to take out Doomsday because it just wins me the game so consistently. Infernal Contract looks really fun I think that'd be a good fit for this deck, maybe I could use that for my card draw instead of Cremate. Blood Pet really helps me when I'm having a hard time drawing lands. He's basically just a Swamp for me that also triggers Blood Artist and Zulaport Cutthroat when I sacrifice him. I even profit mana when Carnival of Souls in in play because I get one when he enters AND another one when I sacrifice him with his ability. Diabolic Intent looks like a really cool card for this deck too, but for that kind of money I'd probably just get Entombs, because 90% of the time the last card I'm looking for is Gravecrawler, and for one less mana and not having to sacrifice a creature I can just put him in my graveyard, which is where he belongs anyway. That reminds me, do you know of any good 1 drop zombies that I could use to ensure I can always play Gravecrawler? Carrion Feeder was really the only good one I could find and he's incredibly good in this deck because not only can I use him to play Gravecrawler from my graveyard, I can also sacrifice him to him as well (for only 1 mana it seems almost too good to be true). Thanks again for the comments guys. I really appreciate it.

Very cool! Much Budget (Which I like).
I feel like the next step is to get certain creatures into your graveyard. You've got all the discard outlets I like (Cathardic Reunion, Key to the City, Etc.). One I'd consider, but may be a little too late-game with your ramp is Grimoire of the Dead. You've got some great sac outlets, too. Goblin Bombardment might be a good add. With your ETB triggers, Panharmonicon seems good.
I really like your assortment. I think Key to the City, Sol Ring, Skullclamp and Reconnaissance are all must-includes. I would cut the 2 Archetypes and Crovax as they are the weakest targets for recursion. Costly Plunder is probably next (Skullclamp just does so much more work!). Mardu War Reaper is "meh," but I could see it holding value as a sideboard (Agent of Erebos does it so much better).
If you end up sinking in some money, definitely Entomb.
Very cool. Great usages of Ebonblade Reaper, by the way!

The obvious solution would be to play MUD, Eldrazi, or Sea Stompy, but you're on a budget and those decks want City of Traitors.
You might also consider playing Burn, since it's actually cheaper to build in Legacy than it is in Modern. Mono-Black Reanimator is another choice if you have some Entombs lying around.
Helm of Obedience combo can also be built on a budget if you have a bunch of Modern cards already. Leyline of the Void, Darkslick Shores, and Rest in Peace are its expensive cards. The rest of it is $1 rares.
The issue is "budget" in Legacy means ~$100. There's even more options if your budget is $200~$300. Remember, Legacy is normally a $3,000 format. $25 is what people spend on individual sideboard cards.
