As wheel effects. Some with the bonus of shuffling my bin back into my library.

Sup, here are my initial thoughts:
Lands:Surprised you're not running Mikokoro, Center of the Sea. You can prob come down to 37 lands too.
Creatures:I'd prob cut:
I'd prob bring in:
- Clever Impersonator
- Sakashima the Impostor
- Archfiend of Ifnir - spicy board wipe synergy - breaks through indestructible too :D
- Seizan, Perverter of Truth
- Consecrated Sphinx
- Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind
- Sire Of Insanity
I think these would be pretty sick in place of all the other enchantments:
- Liliana's Caress
- Fevered Visions
- Underworld Dreams
- Breathstealer's Crypt
- Helm of the Ghastlord
- Leyline of Anticipation
- Leyline of the Void
- Hive Mind = EPIC!
- Well of Ideas
Could prob add more rocks too.
Instants:I think these are the only instants you really need:
These are prob the only ones I'd run:

Cards to consider (if you haven't already):
...and for maximum chuckles, it would be awesome to find room for Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded here. I think you can get some work out of him.

And you are... absolutely correct! This is what happens when you throw in pieces from your old Legacy deck without thinking. Replacing it with Magus of the Wheel for now, while I look for a more suitable replacement.
Thanks for your comment!

Horobi, Death's Wail is strong in any deck with Cauldron of Souls in it: Murder everything your opponents control, unconditionally! Your commander also becomes a Murder-on-a-stick. It's worth mentioning, however, that you don't draw cards from your commander when used in this way (since the creature is destroyed before the ability resolves). Still, you can put -1 counters in other ways.
You have a lot of cycling cards in here, which makes sense with Archfiend of Ifnir. But why cycle one card at a time? Wheel of Fortune, Magus of the Wheel, Dark Deal, Reforge the Soul, etc give you card advantage while disrupting opponents and also being MASSIVE sources of discard. (Just make sure not to wheel away your commander unless you want to pay the tax.)
If you can put two -1 counters on your opponents' creatures, Sudden Spoiling murders their board. You may have to explain layers to your opponents, heh. But it's a gorgeous combat trick, and even better when paired with -1 counters.
Talisman of Indulgence is a fantastic mana rock in these colors.
And finally, no black deck focussed on killing creatures should leave home without Toxic Deluge. I know it doesn't put -1 counters or use damage, but it draws for each preexisting -1 counter and can get you out of a bind pretty easily.
I hope that helps! I need to write a proper description for my version of the deck. Also, what's worked well for you that I'm excluding from my list? :)

Yurie sorry it took me so long to reply, had final exams and work. thats a lot of suggestions. Malfegor is definitely on the maybeboard, he seems fucking hilarious. Ogre Battledriver is prob a no go, unearthed creatures already have haste and the 2 extra power doesnt matter much. Waste Not is interesting, id have to test it out, gets the maybeboard. Exhume is probably a no go, because it lets my opponents get something too, but its a super powerful effect so it gets the maybeboard. for Massacre Wurm and Sheoldred, Whispering One, i would love to run them both but im trying to keep this deck under a 150$ budget, so itd be one or the other. Archfiend of Ifnir is a nah, even with all my looting effects i dont feel it does enough on its own unlike the rest of the creatures to warrant a spot. Body Double lets me get any creature out of any gyard, but its very variable on its usefulness, still gets the maybeobard tho. Cunning Lethemancer is a nah, too small to warrant use and the effect is marginal, if i wanted to run an effect like that id run Necrogen Mists. Puppeteer Clique is interesting, and even though i dont get the persist trigger after unearthing it, the etb is ver powerful. Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs has the same problem as teysa envoy of ghosts, where theyre just not gonna attack until they have a way to get rid of him. Lazav, Dimir Mastermind is a nah bc even tho we have a lot of symmetrical draw spells the chances of actually getting something useful is slim. Fated Return is too expensive to be blunt, even though instant speed reanimation is nice id rather use cheaper spells or just unearth something. Magus of the Wheel is a nice semi repeatable draw, so it gets the maybeboard. Corpse Augur is interesting, id have to playtest it first. Feldon of the Third Path is definitely an interesting card in its own right, and has the potential to be amazing, although the same applies for his potential to be underwhelming. Covenant of Minds is a no go bc giving ur opponents choice sucks. Charmbreaker Devils is a no go bc the randomness tied to its effect could screw me over, and most of my instants and sorceries are good enough as one shots, and even then i have Archaeomancer. Avatar of Woe is a nice repeatable destruction engine, but i dont feel that it fits with the deck. Extract from Darkness has the potential to be super powerful even if my opponents dont have anything in their graveyard because i can get somethin from my own. Overseer of the Damned is a no go, it doesnt do anything when unearthed aside from getting me a 2/2 and killing a dude, and i already have shriekmaw. Infernal Offering gives my opponent choice, and could potentially screw me over hard. Stormsurge Kraken is a nice untargetable beater, but once again it doesnt do enough for me. Skeletal Scrying makes me exile my gyard, so its a no go.

TheRedGoat: As far as Wheel of Fate and Magus of the Wheel versus Wheel of Fortune, those are just examples of Wizards reworking and trying to make balanced versions of unbalanced, older cards. The Magus cycle in particular is meant to be the effects of older, powerful spells and noncreature permanents stapled to creatures to make them more vulnerable. (Magus of the Moat for Moat, Magus of the Tabernacle for The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale, etc.)
A functional reprint is an exact reprint of a card, the only difference being the name. Like the article says, Elvish Mystic is a functional reprint of Llanowar Elves. It wouldn't even be a functional reprint if it was, say, an Elf--Soldier instead of Elf--Mystic (though Wizards has said they won't do functional reprints in this fashion either for the Reserved List cards).

You can't technically have Crypt Ghast in your deck as its color identity includes white. I would add Staff of Nin and Magus of the Wheel to help your topdecking problem. Maybe even Planar Bridge if it's severe enough.
