I would say that this deck has moved so far from tokens, it is has nothing to do with them. Overall, all the combos are ok. I would start by getting rid of all tokens-related cards:
1x Champion of Lambholt
1x Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest
1x Awakening Zone
1x Black Market
1x Cryptolith Rite
1x Dictate of Erebos
1x Contagion Engine
1x Doubling Season
1x The Chain Veil - do not include this with just 3 walkers.
1x Grave Pact
1x Hardened Scales
1x Parallel Lives
1x Blood Artist 1x Archfiend of Depravity
That is 16 cards that can be removed to focus more on the combo win. I would include:
Whisper, Blood Liturgist
Meren of Clan Nel Toth
Cauldron of Souls
Time of Need
This makes you more focused on being a graveyard-based combo-control deck.

MegaMatt13 You're welcome, I'm still building mine, maybe when its finished you can take some ideas from there as well. One more suggestion that came to my mind later: Burnished Hart for ramp and of course Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest his synergy with Izoni is absurd. Oh, and Golgari Grave-Troll best dredge.

So I think you could use some dredge with things like Golgari Grave-Troll, Dakmor Salvage and the like. Grave-Troll also makes a nice reanimation target with The Mimeoplasm. Sidisi, Brood Tyrant is really good self-mill, along with the infinite mill combo of Basalt Monolith + Mesmeric Orb to make infinite zombos. Counters are definitely missing here, OG Counterspell is a good option, Swan Song, and Dispel are very good defensive counterspells that are pretty cheap $ wise.
Hope this helps!

Hey, big fan of the channel. I had a question, why are Golgari Grave-Troll and Dackmore salvage not being ran? I tested the deck out and I sorely missed them.

Scapeshift w/ no Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle or a Hanweir Battlements? Also Harrow is a sweet card, I've found that playing that early sets up nicely for a turn 4 windgrace -3. Also, I feel like you already know this, but you really ought to get the 9 fetches for this deck, terramorphic/evo wilds and friends aren't even close to the same power.
I didn't see that much dredge shenanigans, maybe that isn't what you care about, but in terms of increasing power you could cut some of the worse MLD stuff for Life from the Loam Grisly Salvage and Golgari Grave-Troll
penultimately, Hour of Promise is dope. Tons of mana? Gets kessig and a haste land. Not enough mana? get ancient tomb and Temple of false gods. 5 mana is a lot but it's a pretty legit toolbox card in the deck with lotsa land shenanigans.
and now lastly, you deck seems weak to counterspells (I know mine is) and especially if your tryina blow up lands, those are the spells that usually get countered. So Boseiju, Who Shelters All or Vexing Shusher might be cards you want to consider.

Memnarch is another artifact creature and obviously insanely good in Commander.
If you feel like being degenerate, Glen Elendra Archmage is dumb in this deck too..

Pretty solid list for keeping it under $200. You've got the Ishka-infinite which is a must for this commander IMO, so that's good. Depending on how much you want to use the grave, I'd highly recommend running Golgari Grave-Troll for big dredges and Altar of Dementia as a way of milling yourself further or milling your opponents to death if you pull off the infinite but don't have the colored mana to drain everyone. I'd also recommend running Hornet Queen and/or Grave Titan to give yourself more infinite combo enablers, they don't drain the way Ishka does, but with Blood Artist or Altar of Dementia, you can still go lethal with them.
As for when you get to the land base, include both colored artifact lands, the cycling lands, Geier Reach Sanitarium, Grim Backwoods, and Dakmor Salvage for sure, all of those lands enable Delirium in some way.
Here's my list if you want some inspiration, I'm less budget than this build is, but there's some cheap pieces I'm running that might pique your interest, especially since our builds aren't too far apart and our game plan is the same.

I would add more dredge cards to fill up your graveyard more quickly.
Dredge cards ordered by EDHREC rank: https://scryfall.com/search?q=o%3A%22dredge%22+commander%3ABG&order=edhrec
Otherwise it will take eternities to enable your commander's potential when you just focus on sacrifice/discard.
I run a similar deck that tends to be highly competitive:

Maybe you can find some ETB/LTB triggers you like.
