Lord of Extinction
Creature — Elemental
Lord of Extinction's power and toughness are each equal to the number of cards in all graveyards.
Lord of Extinction Discussion

If you're going to add black, and have some disposable income lying around, may I further recommend Lord of Extinction ?

Expedition Map is a cheap, recurrable way to either fix mana or pull together land combos [Depths/Stage, etc.]
I think to be able to reliably recur your creatures you could use a couple more [free] sac outlets: Viscera Seer , Yahenni, Undying Partisan and Ashnod's Altar all fit the bill. Maybe its overkill for your playgroup but for me I find the first 2-3 I drop down disappear pretty quickly.
Man, you really want at least one fetchland to keep bringing back with your commander with Polluted Delta probably being the best but not sure what your budget is...
As for what to cut, I can only suggest the cuts that I would make:
Lord of Extinction Without a way to give evasion, the chances this just gets chumped each turn is pretty high. I know he's a huge thing to sack to Jarad but that seems narrow enough to go without.
Archaeomancer doesn't have a ton of targets in a deck that wants to recycle permanents. Only 8 in the deck total and Loam you should want to dredge back... Eternal Witness is probably enough for what you want to accomplish.
Sudden Spoiling , on the fence about this one as the split second can be useful for stopping certain combos relying on creatures from going off for a turn but unless your local meta is heavy on this strategy you might be able to go without this.

Nice deck idea. Lord of Extinction seems like a good fit here

Tutors you desperately need tutors and you have to the best two with black, Demonic Tutor which us very affordable now with the UMA reprint and Vampiric Tutor , also Diabolic Intent is perfect for this deck. Not to mention Worldly Tutor or Natural Order to find the specific creatures you need I would also suggest removing creatures like Lotleth Giant or Hatchery Spider, they're mana cost is way too high and their etbs are mediocre. Also you're running Jarad and he combos excellently with Lord of Extinction to continually throw at all your opponents, and can be reanimated over and over.
Now reanimation comes easy, so I would suggest subbing Meren of Clan Nel Toth , and ramp this damn deck needs ramp. Llanowar Elves , Fyndhorn Elves , Birds of Paradise , also take the Elves of Deep Shadow and Golgari Signet from your Golgari guild kit and throw them in there. Abrupt Decay is also a must as it has versatility like Assassin's Trophy but is uncounterable. Not to mention the Bane of Progress is a fantastic enchantment/artifact board wipe.
Speaking of board wipes, you need some in EDH so I would recommend either Toxic Deluge a sweeper which is more affordable or Damnation . Toxic Deluge is faster than Damnation however and gets around indestructible, run both for most optimal removal.
Cut down your creatures from 39 to 35 and I would suggest some infinite win-cons. Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Triskelion fit very well in a reanimation shell (basically Mike gives Trike undying to which he can infinitely throw damage at your opponents and sac himself to reset undying and do it all over again) or even the good old Necrotic Ooze combo, which is Necrotic Ooze+ Phyrexian Devourer + Triskelion which you can set up with buried alive. Get Necrotic ooze, gets both the activated abilities of Trike and Devourer hit your opponent with 1/1 counters based on the cmc of the cards your exiling from the top of your deck. Also get Protean Hulk, the creature is busted and can fetch wincons 6 cmc or less.
Card draw is also vital, I would suggest Sylvan Library or Fecundity as one is the best card for drawing in green the other is great for graveyard strategies but it does fuel your opponent as well, so play it wisely.
Any ideas look at my meren deck, it's runs many of the same ideas with more detailed descriptions on win cons etc. http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/merenating-dat-sauce/

Have you though about playing Lord of Extinction? If you added him in you could also push more dredgers like Life from the Loam, which could work well with Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord. Overall, cool deck!
