You may also want to consider using board wipes that exile instead of destroy in the case of indestructible creatures with hex proof and/ or giving -X/-X.
Here's a few cards to consider:

Like your deck +1 from me.
Maybe add Gifted Aetherborn since your deck looks like it's pretty slow in the beginning, Mutilate is another option. Maybe Gray Merchant of Asphodel: love this card, it work especially well in multiplayer games. Ajani's Pridemate works very well in life gain decks. And a suggestion is if its possible to cut your deck down to 60 cards since your deck will be more consistent, and perform better. I personally would cut a few of the dual lands since all of them enters the battlefield tapped. If you are willing to invest a bit maybe Isolated Chapel or Concealed Courtyard.

Id also cut down to 24 lands. (22 swamp and 2 ghost quarter) I'd add a second Liliana of the Dark Realms. Black Sun's Zenith might be good too. (Goes kind of well with Mutilate). One Languish in the sideboard as well. I think two Noxious Gearhulk is enough considering it costs 6 mana. You could also play between 2-4 Mind Stone for a little ramp.

Far out Mandalorian! Thank you so much! This is a huge help, I was struggling but with this i should be able to get this deck flowing magnificently. I was kind of just expecting a sentence or two of advice and a few card recommendations but you really put in to help me get this deck running. Cheers!
Some of the cards you mentioned I already have (such as Mutilate, Grey Merchant of Asphodel, Duress, and Nightmares pouring out of my ears) but I dis-included them here just because I was using this list to decide what cards to buy.
Some others like Liliana's Caress, Hymn to Tourach, and Shrieking Affliction (I do have one of these but wanted more), I kept out either because the seller didn't have them or I left out to cut costs a bit. (Liliana's Caress is $8 ea! Why I went for Raiders' Wake instead, though it's CMC is higher)
And then there's those cards like Zombie Infestation, The Rack, Waste Not (far out that card is good) and Faith of the Devoted that I somehow never found when researching discard cards and now I feel I must hunt down these cards right away.
I also now totally see what you mean with Brain in a Jar, Tempt with Immortality, and Blood Tribute. Especially Tempt with Immortality I never even realised I was giving their discards back facepalm. Though I've already ordered those cards they'll fit fine in other decks I own so no issue being rid of them.
I was also wondering what's your opinion on adding some cards I already own such as Consume the Meek, Pestilence Demon (Mono-black can work wonders with him, tho it can also obviously be a detriment), Liliana's Reaver, Jar of Eyeballs, Wight of Precinct Six, and Crypt Incursion. Although Crypt Incursion could result in lofty amount of life, it also kind of ruins the synergy of cards like Guiltfeeder but in the other hand denies possibilities of opponent's getting their cards back and could even make Tempt with Immortality more viable.
Another thing I was worried about was that besides Creeping Dread I don't have much consistent opponent discard sources. I did originally consider Cao Cao, Lord of Wei but my seller didn't have it and I do prefer to avoid spending $5 on one card (there are exceptions of course). Other than that I just thought of adding more discard spells like more Mind Shatters, and now, adding a few Unnerves. I do own heaps of Mind Rots but they down seem very CMC efficient. Also adding some of these cards (which I plan to do) will return my issue of deck size. What do you think I could replace? What's worth keeping? What doesn't contribute enough to warrant keeping?
Sorry I feel like I almost just wrote an essay question for you to answer, but I feel as though you probably enjoy this stuff ;P
Again, thanks soo much for your assistance, this is the first deck I've made that I'm trying to make perfect so I really appreciate the help in getting it there. Cheers!!

Here are some more fun ways to make your opponents discard cards and lose life. You mentioned that you just play with your friends, if you play multiplayer games then the cards that say each opponent are especially powerful-
Other good Mono stuff
Underworld Connections can help refill your hand while emptying your opponents
Hope this helps trim and focus the deck a bit more and gives you some more ideas to brew with!

Always happy to see another Mikaeus deck pop up, but I have top warn you that Walking Ballista recieves +1/+1 from Mikaeus, meaning it'll have to use it's counter to kill itself. With a Zulaport Cutthroat, or Blood Artist it should be no problem however.
Otherwise, I'd simply recommend putting in the mono-black staples(as well as Triskelion).
Otherwise, good luck. Wish you all the best with your deck!

I would go with a monoblack control deck. 4 Smallpox, 4 Innocent Blood, 4 Reassembling Skeleton, some Mutilate, Butcher Ghoul, and Despise. Add in some more spot removal, perhaps also recurring creatures, a bit of card draw, and a couple of beefy finishers - and that's a deck. The general idea is to kill all creatures until you are the only one having anything left, and win with that (even if it's a 1/1 creatures you attack with 20 times).
Here's a pile of decks on that general idea, which is pretty cheap to build. But, playing it... sry about losing your friend. https://mtg-peasant.com/search/?A=37

I would suggest that you add in more pillowfort enchantments, because, well, you're bound to get pummeled in the face sooner or later. Ghostly Prison, Windborn Muse, Koskun Falls, Propaganda, Sphere of Safety, Collective Restraint, Dissipation Field, No Mercy, Aurification, and Peacekeeper all work. One nice combo you can run is Energy Field + Rest in Peace (You can no longer take damage as long as those enchantments remain on the field).
If you're aiming for a more oppressive control deck, you also can throw in Fatespinner, Frozen AEther, Blind Obedience, Torpor Orb, Hushwing Gryff, Iona, Shield of Emeria (especially funny when you're playing against a monocolor deck), Linvala, Keeper of Silence, Meishin, the Mind Cage, Indulgent Tormentor, Painful Quandary, Angelic Arbiter... I could go on and on and on.
I'm not sure about the status of your playgroup, but I also would suggest sweepers like Cataclysm, Tragic Arrogance, Mutilate, Cyclonic Rift, basically any sweeper that says "Sacrifice", "Bounce" or "-X/-X" to account for cards like Avacyn, Angel of Hope.
