Thanks a ton for your tips Xica! Very appreciated!
For the idea of behind this deck... Its a tall order i know... but im aiming to keep this deck under $100. It doesn't have to be SUPER COMPETITIVE but yeah i do want it to be able to pull off some wins yknow?
Yeah I definitely do want my opponent to discard and even though the price for Liliana of the Veil went down just one copy is like $20 more than the whole deck. I do have full playsets of Distress and Wrench Mind but im not exactly certain as to what slots I would replace with... like even if i invested in Thoughtseize and picked up Raven's Crime Im just not sure where I would put it/what i'd replace. Currently im thinking that the discard effects happen late game/via cleanup step for the opponent exceeding the maximum handsize and then Necrogen Mists for assistance. Currently as it stands your right i have no way to Blow up all the lands so perhaps i need to integrate more discard enablers.
As for Ensnaring Bridge. The idea seems good. its just too pricey for what im going for... 2 copies of it alone cost more that the entire deck by 20 bucks. Im HOPEING that I finally found a home for Waste Not and some vanilla 2/2 zombie tokens can help chump block with the aid of some spot removal. for a budget Damnation effect i do have a playset of Killing Wave and 2x Necroplasm but just not sure about them...
I love your explanation of Blood Moon... that seems like a very smart idea. But again just not budget friendly and im aiming for mono black... otherwise id try to exploit Liquimetal Coating and green Naturalize/Splinter effects... however; now that you point out the synergy between Ghost Quarter and Life from the Loam thats a lot more tempting now... curse this thin wallet of mine!
As far as scry/tutor is concerned... idk... i have 2x Liliana Vess she does both discard and tutor... any thoughts?

what exactly is the purpose of elixir of immortality? do you need it for life, or do you use it for shuffling back in your yard?

Suggestions for your mana base:
Bad Moon, Eternal Thirst, and Lashwrithe are fine cards but your creatures are already so huge, I don't think you need them. I would just add more ramp instead: Ashnod's Altar (also serves as a sacrifice outlet), Caged Sun, and Expedition Map (to find Cabal Coffers).
Suggestions for draw and card advantage:
It seems like a great win condition is the interaction between your Commander and Maralen of the Mornsong so I recommend more tutor and dark spells to get the combo out. Maybe switch out: Cremate, Sanguine Bond, Unholy Hunger, Abyssal Persecutor, Visions of Brutality, and Vile Requiem for Night's Whisper, Dark Petition, Behold the Beyond, Ambition's Cost, Beseech the Queen and Viscera Seer.
Suggestions for removal spells:
Several of your removal spells cost alot of mana. To the Slaughter, Reach of Shadows, In Garruk's Wake, Dregs of Sorrow, and Annihilate could be replaced with Diabolic Edict, Hero's Downfall, Killing Wave, Malicious Affliction, and Grave Pact.

Welcome, you might want to have a look at some 8-rack lists, your deck is different but of a similar style. Some specific thoughts -
Replace Compelling Deterrence with Vapor Snag.
Replace Despise with Duress.
Forced Fruition is too slow and your not running enough discard to make it worthwhile, Killing Wave could be a handy sweeper.
Warped Devotion only really triggers on Compelling Deterrence (most of the time Unsubstantiate is a counterspell) and it costs 3 Brain Pry could be discard or draw.

Some suggestions, Bone Splinters, Rite of Consumption and Consuming Vapors could be decent sac effects here. I'd say you need some disruption, so at the least Duress, you might be able to use Morbid Curiosity as draw or Killing Wave as sweeper...

Alright here is a ton of cards that seems to fit the theme. Some are definitely better then others I'm just giving a list of cards. Some of these cards are not budget
Hope you find something useful within all these!

You could throw in some board wipes, since Athreos is indestructible, it won't destroy him. Maybe Fell the Mighty or Fumigate. If you have a bunch of creatures out then you'll get them back unless your opponents pay a bunch of life. Also, you could consider Killing Wave. Another board wipe kind of card, with possible life drain.
If you'd want to check out my budget Commander deck, that would be much appreciated :-) Cheers!
