Whenever a nontoken creature enters the battlefield, if Genesis Chamber is untapped, that creature's controller creates a 1/1 Myr artifact creature token.

I've had success with Saltskitters as a critter creation engine.
When Saltskitter enters the battlefield, Genesis Chamber creates a token, and the token entering the battlefield will exile it until the next end of turn. Make another token and exile it again during the opponent's end step.
It's like a nonlegendary Norin the Wary.

Yeah, I see what you mean. Breya can go in a lot of directions. My advice would be to proxy in some combos, such as Genesis Chamber/Grapeshot plus Tidespout Tyrant plus Sol Ring (or any rocks like that), to see if it matches your playstyle. Personally, I'm okay with using 2-3 combos if they're pretty dumb or if I can't tutor for them, but it starts to get boring to win like that all the time.
The good news is, a lot of your combos can be pretty good in a vacuum, so you can easily just put in good cards that happen to combo, and you can play token-style all the rest of the time.

Mono black deckbuilder's toolbox- big list of things I've run in modern in mono black.
Your list looks great for casual. If you want to take it competitive, there are a few interesting cards from the alara block that might work well- Salvage Slasher and Glaze Fiend, which alongside Executioner's Capsule, Genesis Chamber and Lightning Coils can help form a functional core, backed by the usual staples.

First of all, I love your brews, they're an excellent source of inspiration for those of us building in the confines of a budget. Secondly, here are some cool potential additions; Blood Funnel, Demonlord of Ashmouth, Whisper, Blood Liturgist, Torgaar, Famine Incarnate, Krav, the Unredeemed, Genesis Chamber, and Thopter Assembly (for tokens).

Mono black deckbuilder's toolbox is my big list of everything I've (somewhat) tested in mono black in modern. Feel free to look through - its grouped by card effectiveness.
There are a lot of cards that aren't good enough to be 'everyone uses 4', and so the supply massively exceeds demand once they rotate out of standard and they end up pretty cheap and working pretty well. Good enough to win FNM, not quite enough for major tournaments.
Sign in Blood and Night's Whisper are perfect examples. They're premuium quality card draw- they're just outclassed by Dark Confidant and Phyrexian Arena, so they don't see regular play. They're a fantastic engine in budget lists.
For this specific list, I'd look out for copies of Mortician Beetle, Genesis Chamber and Carnage Altar. There are some interesting sacrifice outlets out there, but they're mostly tuned for combo rather than value.
Similarly, there are spells in B/R like Rakdos Charm which are amazingly versatile and effective sideboard cards that there are more copies of than people playing those colours in modern, and as such are cheap.
All that said, this is substantially more together than my first few MTG decks, and I see a bright future deckbuilding if this is the quality of list you are starting with.

I feel like token burn might work better by mainboarding 4 Rakdos Charm. It kills non-T1 hollow one, hates well on KCI/affinity, and with the token burn it hits aggro very hard at instant speed, without needing pieces on the board. Dealing 6 or 7 for 2 mana is on the table in a lot of games.
The battle is colour support for it. You're running blue for hunted, opts/visions and Rapid Hybridization. I don't feel this offers enough compared to a mardu list- card advantage is great, but when compared to just dedicating those slots to a Hunted Horror and some duresses/terminates/sweltering suns, it feels lackluster.
If you were jamming blue to search out Ensnaring Bridge with Trophy Mage, I could get it. If you were jamming Damnation and Supreme Verdict, sure. If you were abusing bounce spells and Genesis Chamber I could get it. But this list just doesn't need blue- all those slots could be a control package or metagame hate with little lost.
Something like Porphyry Nodes could offer a lot, but once again, budget list, and the budget options are nowhere near as potent.
