Night of Souls' Betrayal Discussion

Report from last FNM, went 2:1:
Match 1 against dredge: First game was fast and i did almost nothing. Second game was much better thanks to sideboarding. I managed to remove some important stuff with Tormod's Crypt and buy some time, land Night of Souls' Betrayal shutting down Bloodghast and Narcomoeba. But still Prized Amalgam and Conflagrate was enough to kill me. I desperately needed some other graveyard removal. But Bojuka Bog didn't show up at all and i died with Nihil Spellbomb sitting on the top of my library.
Match 2 against another dredge: First game was straightforward, i bought some time thanks to Gifted Aetherborn, but that was all, no Bojuka Bog, my only chance to win before sideboarding. Second game i won because of board sweeper followed up by graveyard removal, Mutilate and Nihil Spellbomb. Used Bojuka Bog and lifelink before it to buy some time. Game was very long, in the end i had a lot of swamps and Lashwrithe was really powerfull and attached to lifelink creature the game was over. I survived the thanks to Arguel's Blood Fast. Draw cards at the end of opponent's turn and immediately transform on your upkeep, than attach Lashwrithe to anything and job is done. Third game was similar to second, lifegain to stay in game long enough to wreck opponent's graveyard and win because of extremely powerfull Lashwrithe.
Match 3 against storm: Opponent began. I discarded two cards from opponent's hand on turn 1 and turn 2. On turn 4 i was on healthy 27 lifes. Next i was killed by 29 Grapeshots :). Before sideboard discard is my only chance, but still i'm weak against combo. Second game after sideboarding: turn 3 Lost Legacy on Grapeshot with Night of Souls' Betrayal in hand. On his turn 3 with Baral, Chief of Compliance he made something like 100 goblins thanks to Empty the Warrens. On my next turn i landed Night of Souls' Betrayal (he had no open mana, so it was safe) and scooped. Game 3 was very similar to game 2, but no so fast. There were two turns, where i was just hoping (Lost Legacy was Remanded), but once i exiled all his grapeshots and had sweeper in hand i was calm.
Notes: Victim of Night is good budget removal for monoblack, but useless against dredge (Prized Amalgam and Bloodghast). Discard also useless against dredge, so before sideboarding i have almost no chance to win.Against storm, sideboard out all spot removal and let them cast Baral, Chief of Compliance or Goblin Electromancer and handle their wincons. They have usually one before sideboard but two after sideboard. Remember Empty the Warrens! But Empty the Warrens can be handled on sorcery speed on your turn, so have all sweepers in your deck. Be careful of Remand . Lashwrithe scales really good as game goes on. Great synergy with Arguel's Blood Fast and Rite of Consumption. In one game with 7 mana i played Abyssal Persecutor attached Lashwrithe for 2 mana and 2 lifes and immediatelly sac it to Rite of Consumption. 26 lifes swing in total:)

Here's my Olivia Voldaren Deck. I'm looking to put in some new cards like Liliana Vess, Night of Souls' Betrayal, Thran Dynamo and Mimic Vat into it, and would like some thoughts from all of you fine players.

This appears to be more of a punishment-type enchantment list than Stax. If you want to go more down the Stax route, I'd advise pumping up on your number of mana rocks and decreasing your average cmc.
Stax is built on utilizing any of the tenants of Sac/Tap/Tax. For sac, I suggest Descent into Madness, Grave Pact, Tainted AEther, Martyr's Bond, and Porphyry Nodes. For tax, Aura of Silence also doubles as removal. For other powerful options, Humility + Night of Souls' Betrayal is pretty mean, and Lightmine Field shuts down token decks if your taxers aren't up.
Tinker until you come across a build that feels right. Happy brewing!

Vanquisher's Banner is $2 exactly on tcgplayer.
You have 10 cards in your reanimator package, + your general, which may be overdoing it a touch. 1-3 of the weaker cuts there might be fair.

Also, Night of Souls' Betrayal, to replace your Damnations.

For starters you're too deep on dudes unless you're running some kind of Primal Surge deck, which this isn't. You're asking to overextend into a board wipe with too many creatures that don't do a lot alone.
More ramp. You've got some mana dorks, but they die the first second someone drops an Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite or Night of Souls' Betrayal or just casts a wipe. Cultivate and Kodama's Reach are a good start. I'd find a slot for Rampant Growth, Nature's Lore and Skyshroud Claim, plus probably Emerald Medallion.
You need more draw. Harmonize is a good start. Rishkar's Expertise is busted AF. Get one. Selvala's Stampede can do really good work, and Genesis Wave is never bad. Collective Unconscious and Shamanic Revelation are possibly usable here too, and if they are so is Garruk, Primal Hunter who should almost always draw you 4-5 for five mana.
Scavenger Grounds will save your life some game, and it won't hurt you given your lack of colorless lands. Same for Strip Mine when someone starts tapping Cabal Coffers for 14. Plus with those new crazy flip lands from Ixalan everyone gets a Gaea's Cradle and you'll wanna kill that thing ASAP.
There's also Hall of Gemstone but that feels like cheating.
