Lake of the Dead
If Lake of the Dead would enter the battlefield, sacrifice a Swamp instead. If you do, put Lake of the Dead onto the battlefield. If you don't, put it into its owner's graveyard.

I find it interesting that the linked Turbofroggy list plays Lake of the Dead but no Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth. Is it just there to basically draw a card in place of land drop or am I missing something?

Oh, another thing. You are gonna want more lands that tap for 2 mana. Coral Atoll, Everglades, Lake of the Dead, Scorched Ruins, Depletion lands etc. Most are cheap and increase the power of Turnabout.

My friend, you are not taking full advantage of Drana's activated ability in order to singlehandedly remove players from the game with Commander damage...
You need Swiftfoot Boots and Lightning Greaves in order to give her Haste and swing immediately. You also need more ways to produce more black mana - you're missing a lot of the great cards for mana ramp in monoblack. Consider adding Crypt Ghast, Nirkana Revenant, Magus of the Coffers, Cabal Coffers, Caged Sun, Extraplanar Lens, Bubbling Muck, and Lake of the Dead.

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!

Owwwwww.... I failed to read/remember the "instead" part... my bad!
Another thing I recalled: Reconsider putting Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth. I ran a mono-black casual deck that uses all four Cabal Coffers, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, Lake of the Dead and Ancient Tomb. It fixes Ancient Tomb as a swamp for Cabal Coffers and eventual fodder for Lake of the Dead and fixes Cabal Coffers itself: when you have a 3 land draw with a Cabal Coffers, you pray the Gods for another Swamp to come so I won't manascrew myself. A turn 3 Cabal Coffers you won't cast Yehenni unless you have that Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth (mana rocks aside).
PS: Ancient Tomb
PSS: I also ran City of Traitors but those are quite pricey now

I agree that Breya and atraxa are well placed right now, I like the Venser, Shaper Savant list, possibly tier 2.5 but first I feel that the mana curve needs to be lowered (I realize cards like Dig Through Time are not really 8 mana spells but the deck still has a bit of fat.)
Anyways, I would like to resubmit me Kokusho list, I've made some huge changes, cutting out some low impact artifacts and some of the curve toppers and replaced them with cheap artifact creatures and Ashnod's Altar. The results are fantastic! My mana curve plummeted from 1.77 to 1.59, and the extra creatures combined with Culling the Weak, Organ Harvest, Songs of the Damned, and Ashnod's Altar to name a few, produce insane amounts of mana, all the while, as artifact creatures, they also work with Krark-Clan Ironworks and lower my dependency on black mana.
Much less exciting but still important, I chopped some colorless lands for swamps, mulling a perfectly good hand because you don't have black sucks, I need a high swamp count for Lake of the Dead anyways, that card is bonkers and not being able to play it because you don't have swamps is a big blow sometimes.
Without further ado:
