Mikaeus, the Unhallowed
Legendary Creature — Zombie Cleric
Whenever a Human deals damage to you, destroy it.
Other non-Human creatures you control get +1/+1 and have undying. (When a creature with undying dies, if it had no +1/+1 counters on it, return it to the battlefield under its owner's control with a +1/+1 counter on it.)

I really appreciate all the feedback on the deck. I'm having a ton of fun with this deck so far.
More consistent tutoring is something I could certainly benefit from, especially since I adopted the idea of shoving every combo I can think of into the deck.
While I am uncertain how reliable this strategy is, I am going to give it a shot. I am sort of testing the water in the combo pool, if you will. Also at this current time it is a challenge to my playgroup to stop me, or else.

Suns_Champion, Most of the cards you suggested were already in the deck, but Simic Fluxmage and Feast on the Fallen weren't! (We don't talk about Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, he's money) Decided on using those two, thanks for all the help!

Press into Service is +1/+1 counter steal spell that I forgot!
Hmmm. Mikaeus, the Unhallowed,Drana, Liberator of Malakir, and Feast on the Fallen seem like good options. Maybe Simic Fluxmage or Olivia, Mobilized for War, though I don't like the discard, but if you have Necropotence and the like that can be mitigated somewhat. It also occurred to me that Herald of Secret Streams and Flayer of the Hatebound might be good in here!

So far the deck usually wins by either recurring Kokusho, the Evening Star or Gray Merchant of Asphodel a few times in long games or going infinite with Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, Devoted Druid and draining everyone with Blood Artist. Currently I'm looking for more win-condidtions to add some variety to the games.

Most decks actually seem to have shifted away from Black Market, Deathreap Ritual, Zulaport Cutthroat, Hangarback Walker, Walking Ballista, Vindictive Lich, Brawn, Tribute to the Wild, Golgari Thug, Lightning Greaves.

Ok thanks! Yeah we run a lot of rituals because we only have 34 lands that make mana. I took the Cabal Ritual into the wish board for games when We'r mana screwed and stuck at 4 so I can use it the turn after to cast most any card in the deck. The floor is much lower on Lion's Eye Diamond but the ceiling is ridiculous when combined with Yawgmoth's Will with rituals in the graveyard gets me big mana to hard cast Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Triskelion. also brought that Necromancy into the wish board for stealing Mikaeus, the Unhallowed from an opposing self milling Meren of Clan Nel Toth deck OR taking pieces out of the Saffi and Friends combos.
Still need to find a place for Shriekmaw. suggestions anyone?

Happy to help you out AinsleyTheGod, so here are some ideas for you:
Both of the previous commenters have some good ideas, but before you start grabbing upgrades suggested, you probably want to answer the question of how competitive you are looking to be? If you're wanting a fun home-brew in a casual meta, then there really aren't any wrong answers. Playing cards that you find fun and entertaining is all good in that case, so adjust the deck to your personal preference/flavor. On the other hand, if you are specifically looking to become more competitive against all comers, then job number one needs to be to reduce your CMC curve significantly while increasing your turn speed to get Sheoldred into play ASAP.
Considering your commander's strengths are forced sacrifice and reanimation, your best bet is to build primarily around that synergy. To that end, there are a ton of creatures lower on the mana curve that will provide an upgrade in synergy as well. I would suggest the following that you don't currently have included in your deck: Viscera Seer, Zulaport Cutthroat, Fleshbag Marauder, Merciless Executioner, Stinkweed Imp, Ophiomancer, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Su-Chi, Phyrexian Delver, Sidisi, Undead Vizier, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, Rune-Scarred Demon and Razaketh, the Foulblooded. Each has their own way in which they improve the overall synergy, with the higher CMC options providing significant benefits or board presence, which will almost always require your opponents to deal with them immediately, clearing an easier path for your commander as well.
In addition to creatures, you'll want to increase the number of cards that will fill your graveyard with select creatures, as well as increase the number of ways to reanimate them, and even sacrifice them, typically for your benefit, but also to your opponent's detriment. The following would be my initial suggestions based on those criteria: Entomb, Innocent Blood, Reanimate, Animate Dead, Exhume, Vampiric Rites, Buried Alive, Necromancy, Ashnod's Altar, Grave Pact and Dictate of Erebos. There are numerous other options to fill these criteria as well, but sticking with the lowest CMC options, these are among the best.
Also, black has great options for ramp, tutors and card draw, so accelerating the deck and finding what you need shouldn't be an issue. Among the best low CMC options for these purposes include: Dark Ritual, Bubbling Muck, Vampiric Tutor, Sensei's Divining Top, Expedition Map, Demonic Tutor, Cabal Ritual, Sign in Blood, Night's Whisper, Beseech the Queen, Phyrexian Arena, Necropotence and Diabolic Tutor.
Hopefully you find these suggestions helpful - obviously some of these options aren't necessarily budget friendly, but as you accumulate more of them, focusing on the most affordable first if necessary, the end result will be a significant improvement in consistency and performance from your deck. Best of luck with your deck brewing, and have fun with it.
