Cast Necrologia only during your end step.
As an additional cost to cast Necrologia, pay X life.
Draw X cards.

rpshea14 the thing that you need to remember with Necropotence is that you don't discard to exile. Instead whenever you discard a card it creates a trigger to exile that card - a trigger of which you can respond to.
As somebody who plays Gitrog a lot - ad nauseam is stronger, despite the life loss as you can play it through Angel of Jubilation effects, you can cast it before your turn, it beats Spirit of the Labyrinth effects... but Necrologia a neat budget option!

Instead of Ad Nauseum, run this gem, great in grave decks with slightly higher curves.
Necrologia it also has double value because you draw more after you pitch

Raikas Yeah Demon of Dark Schemes seems very powerful. I'll have to test it, and I'll definitely put it in the maybeboard. It is very slow but acts as a boardwipe on its own. Once its engine gets online it might pull off a win similar to the Reassembling Skeleton line.
I don't play Shadows of the Past for the same reason I don't play Ashes of the Abhorrent . Scrying is better than not, but I want to use my card slots for things with higher impact like engine pieces or very good utility. I should put the card in the maybeboard though, you're right about that.
h0ly_danc3r I've never had problems so far with lacking win-cons. If you think you need more, these buff cards would be fine includes, but currently I'd rather have more engine pieces.
Yahenni is good because he doubles as a threat, but I like cheaper sac outlets.
If you need more card draw, Mind's Eye is alright, but this deck can achieve so much more with its plentiful options. I would rather play cards like Stoneforge Mystic , Open the Armory , or Beseech the Queen to tutor for Skullclamp if I need more card draw. Otherwise Necrologia , Mentor of the Meek , and Corpse Augur are all great ways to draw massive amounts f cards for less mana than mind's eye.

I see you have Phyrexian Arena , and I'd like to suggest 2 cards to assist in card draw...
Underworld Connections helps you little by little, but its still a worthwhile card.
Just thought I'd make some suggestions! :D

Suggested card replacements!
maybe cut 2 mana rocks in addition to the earlier notes I provided.
The warhammer gives lifelink, super! Gut shot is nice cause you can fix your life total before switching 1, point for casting or 2, or 3 points if you target yourself for free.
Same drop slot and you stop opponents being able to manipulate their own life total by playing creatures.
Too slow, and necrologia lets you draw a bunch of cards.
Again, you don't want them to fix their own life total themselves. Blood celebrant lets you fix your own and fixes mana, so good.
I know you like the multiplayer discard, but I think vexing devil is better in this slot.
This is really up to you, I like the idea of trading life for creature removal but your mileage may vary.
You run way too many tech enchantments that you want to be able to get back.
Just a strict upgrade IMO.
cut basics? I like them because you can bring your life down, fix mana, cheat things out, and get instants back into your deck...

Dark Impostor is another removal spell on a stick that exiles the creature it targeted as well as gains its activated abilites, all for low CMC and low $. Same goes for Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief but she powers herself up for a quicker kill. Guul Draz Assassin and Big Game Hunter also fit into this category.
For single target kill spells: Sever the Bloodline is a bit overcosted for most targets but is a pretty good token killer, Price of Fame is cheap enough if targeting opposing commanders and lets you dig through your library looking for answers. Tragic Slip is low CMC and can be a way around indestructible.
For mass removal, Mutilate and Black Sun's Zenith are inexpensive options. Nevinyrral's Disk can wipe the board of both artifacts and enchantments which black flat out has no real way to directly deal with.
But one of black's specialties is getting opponents to sac their owns permanents, especially creatures: Gatekeeper of Malakir , Chainer's Edict , Geth's Verdict , Plaguecrafter , Slum Reaper , Fleshbag Marauder , Diabolic Edict
For some additional artifact ramp: Charcoal Diamond , Mind Stone , Worn Powerstone , Hedron Archive Unstable Obelisk with the Obelisk doubling as 'hit anything' removal and the Stone and Archive being some card draw as well.
For mono black Cabal Stronghold is a cheap option to gain extra mana late game.
I didn't price check everything listed above but nothing there should be too outrageously priced.

You can consider running card likes Tymna the Weaver as well as Necrologia for that burst card draw. Ashes of the Abhorrent is also a great hate card against opposing grave type decks. Devoted Caretaker is a spicy tech card that most people don't use much of!
Hope that helps!
