You can cut out Cascading Cataracts for Diseased Vermin. You've already got two fetches for Swamps and Cascading Cataracts is almost completely useless in a mono-colored deck.

I'd also highly recommend some more non-basics like Lake of the Dead, Wasteland, Strip Mine, Peat Bog, Barren Moor, Everglades, Bojuka Bog, Volrath's Stronghold, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, and Cabal Coffers.

Lands jesus christ.

Lake of the Dead, Cabal Coffers, Phyrexian Tower, so on. Check other cEDH black bases, like Kokusho, all the life

some suggestions, then some questions.

Skirge Familiar+Dakmor Salvage lets this deck produce all the black mana with your general in play (draw=>delve->discard= mana repeat) also lands like Lake of the Dead, Lotus Vale, Petrified Field are powerful here.

so what exactly is the main goal here? you seem to have 2-3 focuses that dont seem to synergize well with eachother and make the deck super land/mana light for the general's up/downsides, especially the addition of non-shuffle eldrazi.

how exactly does Doubling Cube+Basalt Monolith go infinite? basalt nets mana (unless you use Rings of Brighthearth to copy the untap and net ) or something like Paradox Engine to untap the cube and basalt.

Hey, it's been awhile since I played this type of deck but personally I think 4 Lake of the Dead is going to be painful, 2 or 3 would be my preference personally. I'd throw in some Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx since it and obliterator are such friends.

A couple Mind Twist might be worth dropping a sinkhole/hymn? Otherwise maybe Chainer's Edict?

You have a TON of mana sources here. Fast artifact mana, ramp via spells, creatures, and enchantments, but what are we ramping into? You seem to only have 1 fatty in the deck and 1 Torment of Hailfire mana sink, so I don't understand what all the fast mana is for? I think you could trim a lot of it, especially the rituals, for some more win conditions and/or interaction.

Necropotence is amazing. You could replace Read the Bones and add it in. Also maybe throw in a copy or two of Lake of the Dead for some ramp. I'd add in some one drop creatures, maybe cut Harsh Scrutiny and a Profane Command for 3x Cryptbreaker. I'd also add in a total of 6 of the following cutting some of your other creatures and a Sol Ring maybe: Miasmic Mummy, Plaguebearer, Relentless Dead, Shepherd of Rot, or Stromgald Crusader. You could add in some lords... Death Baron, Lord of the Undead, and Undead Warchief are solid. Some other things to consider are Attrition, Curse of Shallow Graves, Endless Ranks of the Dead, and Call to the Grave. Hope this helps out!

Just some good synergy cards to consider! Looks pretty good except I would add like 7 more lands. In a deck based around land synergies with minimal mana rocks, you should really have more lands.
