ManaChrome, your username gave me an idea.
Chromium, Transmutable Energies
Legendary Creature - Elder Dragon
Whenever you draw a card, Chromium, The Transmutable gets +1/+0 until end of turn.
Whenever you cast a spell, Chromium, The Transmutable gets +0/+1 until end of turn.
: Exile a card from your hand, then return a card from your graveyard to your hand. Chromium, The Transmutable gains Hexproof until end of turn.
Esper loves draws and loves to sling spells; Why not make a solid Midrange Commander to benefit from it?
Colorless, Guild, Shard, Wedge, 4C, or 5C. I don't really care :) I just would like to see a cool new Titan :D

You have a lot of sorceries. They're not necessarily bad, but they are taking up space where zombies could be. You can get rid of innocent blood (use fleshbag marauder instead), aether snap, twilight's call, life's finale
You don't really need vensor's journal or whispersilk cloak. You don't really have big creatures that do anything on combat damage to a player.
For instants I think tendrils of corruption, grasp of darkness, murder, go for the throat, and doom blade do well in mono black
And you got some jank creatures. What is that vulture? no. No dross hopper, no gangrenous zombies, no zombie brute, gutless ghoul is kind of crap, you have a lot of things with activated abilities and I just don't think you're going to be using them that much.
You also don't have card draw. You have a sign in blood and that's it really. Black has some good pay with life card draw cards.
You have the sanguine bond/exquisite blood combo, but your sanguine bond is completely useless. You don't gain any life except from vensor's journal and you don't have much card draw, so it's not going to do much.
Good zombie cards to add: Fleshbag Marauder (so good with mikaeus) Ghoulcaller Gisa Ghoulraiser Graf Harvest Grave Betrayal Grave Defiler Graveborn Muse Gravecrawler Infernal Caretaker josu vess Liliana's Mastery Lord of the Accursed Maalfeld Twins Necromancer's Stockpile Necromantic Selection Noosegraf Mob Open the Graves Grave Titan Liliana's Reaver Cadaver Imp Corpse Connoisseur Accursed Horde Archdemon of Unx cemetary recruitment Cryptbreaker Diregraf Colossus Doomed Dissenter Empty the Pits (is hilarious) Ever After Overseer of the Damned Plague Belcher Rakshasa Gravecaller Relentless Dead Risen Executioner Rot Hulk Shepherd of Rot Stir the Sands Zombie Infestation
I think I have some of these. You can have them if I do

Hey! Nice deck, I also have a Yahenni deck and I have a few low budget cards that i think would be great for your deck. First card that I think is a must for Yahenni is Spawning Pit this card over performs every time I put it out. It's another sacrifice outlet and it doubles as a token generator, it's amazing. Another great sac outlet is Sadistic Hypnotist its my favorite card in my list and has let me win countless games by virtually locking others out of the game outside of topdecking. Helm of Possession is another favorite card of mine, i still cant believe it cost less then 5 dollars.
I would put in Plaguecrafter over merciless executioner, same price but better effect.
I think you also want more token generators, ones that I like that you dont have are Noosegraf Mob for a best budget option, Hangarback Walker and Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet as well as Grave Titan for a bit more expensive options and finally Bitterblossom if you're looking to splash some cash.
Another cheap all star is Mirage Mirror this card is amazing. Doubling our Dictate of Erebos triggers is insane and in your voltron deck you can make it a copy of an equipment to make Yahenni larger or just copy a different target, theres always great ones.
Another aspect of the deck that could use some love is your land base. Obviously there's Cabal Coffers and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth which is the sacred black combo if you want to spend some money on those but theres some great more budget friendly options too. Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is a great card for under 10 dollars and can produce a ton of mana, Cabal Stronghold is very powerful and its a land that you can copy with Mirage Mirror to make even more mana if you want. High Market is another great one and finally Myriad Landscape and Barren Moor are two great cheap ones.
Removal is something that you can upgrade rather easily as well. Hero's Downfall is strictly better murder and Ashes to Ashes still cost 50 cent for some reason. Another great one is Attrition it gets rid of artifact creatures too which sometimes is an issue. Unstable Obelisk is a good card with dual purpose as removal for things that are hard to get rid of for mono black and it ramps, a great card to add.
If there is one card that I think is an absolute must add to your list though its Grave Pact I know it's on the pricey side but believe me, there isn't enough of this effect it is always useful.
Feel free to check out my list if you want to see more cards that could be good to add. I wish you luck in your endeavors as a member of Sac gang, and remember "The time for subtlety is over, darling."

Thanks for the comment, crazyduels. I'm pretty likely to swap in Phyrexian Altar for Teysa Karlov , then I need to decide what I'm removing for Necromancy once it comes in. I'll also consider Rally the Ancestors , as I do have a pretty high creature count and low creature CMC.
Nim Deathmantle is in the deck purely as a combo piece - it's decent-ish (but slow and expensive) reanimation on its own, so I'm typically only going to cast it when I can capitalize and win. It goes infinite with Ashnod's Altar and either an undying creature (from Mikaeus, the Unhallowed ) or a creature that brings an additional body on either death or ETB ( Pawn of Ulamog or Grave Titan ). Having a Blood Artist effect on my board then wins, barring interaction from the table.

Excellent deck! You've made me realize how much I've undervalued Mazirek. I feel like I need to reconsider him for my golgari deck... Anyhow - Have you've considered other infinite sac outlets for backup? In particular, adding a Nim Deathmantle to your Ashnod's Altar turns your Avenger of Zendikar and Grave Titan into infinite tokens and colorless mana.
Also, pairing any of these infinite sac outlets with a Blood Artist is devastating.

I would remove the gurmag angler as most of the stuff you put into the graveyard, you want their, and you probably don’t want to exile them. You could replace it with a Grave Titan .
