Hythonia the Cruel
Legendary Creature — Gorgon
6BB: Monstrosity 3. (If this creature isn't monstrous, put three +1/+1 counters on it and it becomes monstrous.)
When Hythonia the Cruel becomes monstrous, destroy all non-Gorgon creatures.

Considering the Gorgon Tribal Commander is Hythonia the Cruel , yeah, it's a weak tribe.
Legendary Creature - Gorgon
Other Gorgons you control have +1/+1 and Trample
: Create a 2/4 Gorgon creature token with deathtouch.
Sisters of the Stone Death was the original legend.
Let's see another (mostly) unusued tribal commander!

Hello, i'm sorry for the delay in responding here. Anyways here are the changes I would make:
Cut 3x Forests and 5x Swamps for these: Command Tower , Golgari Rot Farm , Woodland Cemetery , Tainted Wood , Overgrown Tomb , Hissing Quagmire , Temple of Malady , Blooming Marsh , Jungle Hollow , Golgari Guildgate , Blighted Woodland , Temple of the False God , Llanowar Wastes , Bojuka Bog . (I gave you more than 10 choices here so you have options at varying prices, choose whichever 10 or even more that you would be willing to include here, keep in mind also that I have ordered them based on my most recommended to least, but all are fine choices here).
I have to get going for now, but I hope that you will find all of this useful, and let me know what you think of these changes!

Animation Module - Missed out on that one, great idea
Blade of the Bloodchief - I feel as though it's not gonna be used to its full potential most of the time, since, while Vish Kal likes counters, this deck isn't a counter deck that much.
Citadel Siege - Same reasoning
Walking Ballista - Maybe, but I have reservations about adding it since I can't really see myself ever using the ability to gain more counters, so it'd enter with x counters and id either sac it to Vish, or use it all up to blast someone.
Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet - Already in.
Endless One - Similar reasoning to Ballista
Hangarback Walker - Definitely can see it being useful, though I worry I'll never really cast it for a high enough x to get that much out of it
Hythonia the Cruel - Too expensive really, trying to keep the cmc as low as possible
Karlov of the Ghost Council - Lifegain is just a byproduct of the cards in the deck, I might actually make it less lifegain oriented, so while he can be great removal, I don't think he'd be that useful. Might take a bit more consideration to full decide
Krav, the Unredeemed - Not really sure about him, maybe board for now
Maga, Traitor to Mortals - Would be way to expensive to cast to get a significant amount of life drained, can only see him being played late game to get that final bit of damage in.
Marionette Master - While a great card, I don't have any ways to sacrifice artifacts, so her ability is moot
Mikaeus, the Lunarch - Not a counter deck
Thanks for your suggestions. I think I should refine the objective of the deck a bit more and appreciate your assistance, WarriorMagic

Commander's Sphere is super cheap right now. Same with Darksteel Ingot, Leaden Myr, Everflowing Chalice, Astral Cornucopia, Corrupted Grafstone, Guardian Idol, Phyrexian Totem and Worn Powerstone. there are more (My LGS goes by tcg prices so that's what I use). If you wanted to make Hythonia the Cruel deck then maybe add a couple more gorgons. The ramp cards I suggested should be auto-includes once you get your hands on some money.

Thanks BelugaWhale217 for the suggestions, but I probably won't use them. I tried to keep the deck under $30.00 and I just wanted to make a Hythonia the Cruel deck, not necessarily a Demon Tribal deck. The mana rocks you suggested would pump up the price a bit too much, though I will add in Charcoal Diamond. Within those restrictions, do you have any other ideas?

Consider these swaps:
Some number of Pulse of Murasa could also be helpful if early game rushes are a problem. Maybe for 1 or 2 between Vessel and Grapple.
Sideboard should be where enchantment/artifact hate goes (2-3 is a good number, Naturalize is efficient, cheap, and good enough for most situations). Consider for sideboard a pair of Languish for go-wide strategies, and some exile removal for go-tall hard-to-remove strategies.
Vraska's Contempt alternatives: I think planeswalkers will be hard for the deck to deal with, unless creatures are chained efficiently, so making sure your removal hits planeswalkers is a good idea. Some alternatives to Doom Blade are: Hero's Downfall, To the Slaughter, Never / Return).

Came here mainly to upvote for SoSD. Love the card. And the gorgon creature type in general.
In the way of suggestions I don't have much, since this is obviously a sort of personal deck. Some ideas though:
You could consider adding Hythonia the Cruel to play off the Gorgon synergy and possibly get a big swing in with the Sisters.
Gift of the Deity sort of plays off the same mechanics as the sisters and might also just clear a way by itself
