Bloodspore Thrinax, Chorus of the Conclave, Citadel Siege, Cruel Sadist, Cultivator of Blades, Cytoplast Root-Kin, Death's Presence, Enduring Scalelord (and also Mirage Mirror so that you can make it go infinite), Flesh Carver, Hydra Broodmaster (or any hydra really, but especially Kalonian Hydra), Maga, Traitor to Mortals, Mikaeus, the Lunarch, Mycoloth, Kalemne's Captain, Noosegraf Mob, Skullmulcher, SpikeFeeder (goes infinite with Archangel of Thune), Splitting Slime all look good for the deck.

I try to shy away from the more staple draw and counter spells, since they both synergise less with the deck's other cards and flavor, which is important (though Rhystic Study could be a flavor hit as well, I dislike playing with the card in general). I'd rather draw cards with Shadowmage Infiltrator than with his effective counterpart Phyrexian Altar, counter spells with Voidmage Prodigy instead of Counterspell and so on.
Goblin Bombardment was close to making the list despite its questionable flavor, though, now I've found more sacrifice outlets through Flesh Carver and Thoughtpicker Witch, I'm quite happy with the amount of them.

Hey UnleashedHavok, thanks for the suggestion! I used to use Flesh Carver, because it came in the Prossh, Skyraider of Kher precon deck I believe. Which I played a handful of games with before changing it up. It was pretty good, I distinctively remember getting a win using Flesh Carver once too. In this Mazirek deck I have been very picky about the token generating cards and the sac outlets I am using...currently I'm using mostly 1-2 CMC creatures that replace themselves with a token or cards that make a token every turn (for no mana) for generating tokens....and all sac outlets that cost no mana to activate or ones that draw cards. That way I pretty much always get both kinds of value (card draw and a replacement token) from any creature sacrifice interaction.

A card that I really enjoy in my Kresh the Bloodbraided is Flesh Carver. I know that you have to pay mana for his sacrifice, but if your opponent is not running black or artifacts (depends on your meta) he can be a surprisingly difficult threat very quickly. I have won games with him alone. I think he could have some fun interactions with your deck, and he would have a fun interaction with Mazireck.

Archetype of Aggression would help you more than Bloodfray GiantCarnival Hellsteed and Cryptborn Horror don't do as much as they should for their cost/conditions. Have you considered War Elemental and Kolaghan, the Storm's Fury instead?Also, Rakdos Ickspitter, Gore-House Chainwalker, and Splatter Thug could easily be cut out for effects that boost other, better creatures. Not to mention that haste providers like Mass Hysteria become dead draws once you have a way to put +1/+1 counters on creatures entering the battlefield (such as Drana or Necropolis Regent). Also, Caldera Hellion, Mephidross Vampire, Retribution of the Ancients, Grenzo, Dungeon Warden or Flesh Carver?

I knew I forgot some. Unspeakable Symbol turns life gain into counters, Sapling of Colfenor is on point for your deck. Necropolis Regent will pump your creature's toughness before Ikra gains you life. Bloodspore Thrinax and Flesh Carver are great to trigger and enable Reyhan. Forgotten Ancient will flood the board with counters.
