Oblivion Sower could be nice addition to potentially ramp you up and remove some tutored top cards. So Emergence Zone is really good land to have.
What about Eldrazi Displacer to flick some of your ETB cards?

If you wanna do some kind of "control" I would suggest:
Sudden Spoiling - can save you, or use it diplomatically. It also combos with Massacre Wurm.
You already use Sadistic Sacrament and Life's Finale, so you could consider Nightmare Incursion,Praetor's Grasp, even Peer into the Abyss could be silly to use :D Curse of the Cabal is a bit silly, but could be fun to use in some decks.
I use Bitter Ordeal in my For the Void as a combo piece... its very derpy combo, but it works surprisingly well :D (infinite triggers of Desecrated Tomb+Tortured Existence+Phyrexian Altar).
Gravestorm - could be used aswell, but there are better cards for draw and graveyard hate, but why not more card draw in control deck?
Necropotence - depending on your budget (which it seems to be okay), this is just top tier diamond in mono-black. You dont even have any self-discard card effects (just max. hand size), so its even better. Reliquary Tower usually fixes that problem, so you can go full yolo. Ivory Tower/Venser's Journal helps to mitigate the life lose.
Price of Knowledge - Should be pretty solid in mono-black (even in U/B) control. It also works pretty well with Peer into the Abyss.
Revenge of Ravens - could be helpful to keep attacking creatures away from you or just slow them down.
Scheming Symmetry - Absolutely great card, especially when you can either draw your top card right away, or just cast it with Bolas's Citadel and/or remove the top card of your opp's library, which shouldnt be that hard, depending on you deck, ofc. Lord of the Void/Oblivion Sower should do the job.
Cards I would get rid off:
Blood Artist - Its a good card, but it heavily depends on the board state of every player.. I personally wouldnt play it, unless you can abuse it on your own, pinging opponents by 1 damage..
Beseech the Queen - In my opinion, this is the worst tutor a mono black deck can have, just because you must reveal the card you tutored for.. I would either remove it or replace it with other tutor like Grim Tutor, etc.

Deck looks awesome +1 from me! Name def drew me in too
I'd suggest Tidespout Tyrant for redundancy with Cloudstone Curio. The triple blue is scary but I run it in two decks and it puts in work. Temur Sabertooth too. Fabricate might be worth it to snag a few of your wincons. Birthing Pod goes with your sac tutors
Not sure what to take out. I love eldrazi. Oblivion Sower is my favorite w Animar. Cultivator Drone might be your most mehh. Collector Ouphe hurts a few of your things. I assume you see a lot of countermagic with Prowling Serpopard in the list(?)
Anywho, have fun! Please check out my Animar deck and tell me what you think! Peace!

Here's my take on what to cut:
Elvish Aberration: 6 mana is a lot just to ramp. Cycling is nice, but doesn't directly Ramp.
Ghitu Chronicler: Again, expensive. There are much better things to do with our 6-mana
Krosan Tusker: Same as before. Expensive for what it is, doesn't directly ramp.
Magus of the Candelabra: Unless we can double mana somehow, doesn't actually ramp.
Nessian Demolok: Can be useful, but I've found tribute usually gets paid with these cards since creatures are pretty easy to deal with.
Oblivion Sower: Fun card, but just doesn't fit the deck
Treasonous Ogre: Just seems really slow to me
Valley Rannet: Same reasons as the tusker
Void Attendant: Again, just doesn't fit with the deck
Vessel of Volatility: Slow, and I honestly prefer my ramp to be repeatable
Land. I usually stick to around 36, I'd go down to there and test to see if it works out all right (Maybe 1 or 2 more since you seem to have a good amount of lands that can be sacrificed).
The Chain Veil: Not exactly useful here. You have some Planeswalkers, but not enough to really make it worth it.
Blood Feud: Too expensive for what it does. Green has a lot cheaper options
Processor Assault: Good value for your mana, but how often does exile come up in your games?
Volcanic Vision: Has potential, but I'm not really seeing a whole lot of spells that make it great.
Yawning Fissure: Doesn't fit strategy of the deck
Fiery Fall: Expensive.
These are just my thoughts, hope it helped!
(Also, Pyromancer's Goggles seems good here.)

If you're trying to hard cast Emrakul, you're gonna need to ramp HARD. You maaaay want to consider going a little bit into green for some cards that allow you to get out more than one land a turn, cus as is, it seems like casting Emrakul before turn 10 will be a bit difficult. I really like the Oblivion Sower inclusion for what you're trying to do btw, would toy with the idea of tossing in one more.

Cool deck! I like the flavor. Morophon just makes sense as an eldrazi leader for some reason haha. Here are some cards you might consider:
Pitiless Plunderer (good with eldrazi spawn/scions), Heirloom Blade, Dimir Machinations / Drift of Phantasms (can find Fist of Suns and other things), Ravnica at War, Temur Sabertooth (allows you to reuse eldrazi with cast/enter abilities), Basalt Monolith (if played turn 3, this gets Morophon out on turn 4. can also be used to play high-cmc eldrazi every other turn in the absence of your fist combo), Oblivion Sower, Sire of Stagnation

+1 from me, animar is my favorite!
If you're looking at adding eldrazi, or any creatures that untap lands (example: Peregrine Drake), I'd suggest Cloudstone Curio. With Animar and Curio you can infinitely bounce and cast two morph and/or eldrazi creature for free, so something like Oblivion Sower will exile your opponent's entire decks and they lose as they draw a card during their turn lol

Hello! Nice deck, I am also building Haldan and Pako and I think I might have some ideas on which cards you should put away from your deck. I think that both Agent of Treachery and Avenger of Zendikar are costing too much mana. Also they are creatures so maybe you could exile them and they could be dead cards. I think that Oblivion Sower is a much better card in this deck especially because if you exiled a lot of lands from someone you could just cast this for 6 mana and potentially get more lands out of it. If you would like to use Agent of Treachery to steal something then you can just play Telemin Performance or just go for the good old Blatant Thievery. Maybe Omnath, Locus of the Roil is a bit better card than Tatyova, Benthic Druid because he will provide you with the same card draw and he will plus Pako, Arcane Retriever as he is also an elemental. Otherwise I think this looks like a cool deck altogether.
