TypicalTimmy I kNOw hOw the STack worKs, but it can be a little confusing when you sacrifice a Filigree Familiar to a Viscera Seer with Teysa Karlov and Ashes of the Abhorrent out, plus your opponent has an It That Betrays and has just Fact or Fiction'd in response for some reason... just wondering if you have any tricks for not forgetting or missing anything, just like Daveslab2022's dice trick (thanks, BTW, I'll keep my cards off my library now as well)

Hello there! Totally cool list, this should be upvoted more! :3
For most decks that runs black I recommend Tortured Existence. Very cool and oldschool card just for one that can easily get you some big reanimator targets into your graveyard and some smaller creature back into your hand to re-cast it, at instant speed. However, I personally use it as an engine in my Syr Konrad's For the Void deck, together with Desecrated Tomb and Phyrexian Altar. I think it could fit here aswell, since you could get infinite experience counters to reanimate literally any creature that would ever exist (most likely). :D
The bad thing is, that combo doesnt work with Necropotence :( But you can draw as many cards as you want with your Grim Haruspex (Dark Prophecy/Smothering Abomination are an alternative options).
Viscera Seer for just one is pretty great. Woe Strider does the same thing (but can't sac itself though), but costs more, but gives you 0/1 goat token and can get itself out of the graveyard.
Also, with those forcing sacrifice effects (Fleshbag Marauder etc.), how about It That Betrays to take over you opponent's stuff as either a fuel for your cards of beat them with their own cards? :D

Dude... you need a Triumph of the Hordes. The deck needs at least one source of infect.

I would cut:
Creepy Doll: An okay deterrent but 5 mana is a good chunk for this effect.
Lorthos, the Tidemaker: Not the best giant sea creature for your deck. Ideally you only pay 2 mana to cast this but then you need 8 mana for its effect. 8 mana would be better spent 95% of the time suspending 4 cards.
AEtherplasm: You have better Jhoira replacement effects already in the deck. You are dependent on your opponents though for this to help you.
Stormtide Leviathan: This shuts down quite a bit of your own creatures. Unless you go strictly island walk and flying then it should be cut. Also a good swap out for your maybe board Ulamog if you own him.
Knowledge Pool: I love this card. Though, outside of Lavina decks and chaos it isn't that good. Once an opponent steals one of your Eldrazi this feels awful.
Wild Evocation: Not bad. Fits theme but you have quite a few cheating effects outside Jhoira. This one seems more expensive and can sometimes help your opponents more.

In fact, if you decide to run Tooth and Nail and you want to be more jank and kinda cruel run It That Betrays and Keldon Firebombers. With Omnath out it basically ends the game. This was in one of my incarnations of Omnath. I actually managed to pull it off with both Omnath and Titania out once!

Can we get some eldrazi in here? Maybe a Void Winnower? Or a Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger, Kozilek, Butcher of Truth, It That Betrays, or even Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre. There are many more op eldrazi, but u get the point

enpc: Thanks for your thoughts! I was already on the fence about Damia and It That Betrays, so I think I'll sub them out. However, Hogaak is recurrable free 8/8 with trample, which is no joke, even in Commander. I'll goldfish without Phenax and Tidespout Tyrant, but I can't make definitive changes until I'm able to test at my LGS. Thanks for your input!
atingtdm: If you think about it, one zombie isn't that much of a payoff. Windfall and Frantic Search are just good cards, and my combos rely on pieces in the 'yard, so I'm going to try to find room for them. Thanks for your input!
