So, in essence, playing Jeska (Phage, I'm a lore nerd) out while Endless Whispers is in play and Removing it is a fancy way to pay 7 Mana to Kill your Opponent and garner a Commander tax? Sounds pretty eh. I do think that Lich's Mastery would synergize well with Palace Siege, might try to make that work. I appreciate the help with the interactions!!

This doesn't look bad! With that being said, I'd add more card draw that isn't reliant on having Rakdos, Lord of Riots on the field, such as Wheel of Fortune/Reforge the Soul/etc or Read the Bones. I'd also add a LOT more ramp, since the deck is essentially dead without its commander, particularly mana rocks such as Coalition Relic or Gilded Lotus. My first cuts would be Rakdos's Return, Palace Siege, and all three of your PWs: they don't do enough for their mana costs. Also, have you considered Lobber Crew as another way to curve out Rakdos?

Ok, to start off, this deck is phenomenal! It has great synergy and potential. There are a few cards however, that I personally think don't have a place here. For starters, Black Market is a good card, but by the time you get it onto the field, you already have enough mana for literally every single card in your deck, assuming that you have 2 green mana which Black Market can't help with anyway. A good replacement would be Palace Siege. It costs the exact same amount, plus it is still another enchantment. You can choose to add onto Zulaports' ability, or grab an extra Blisterpod every turn. Both would be better than excess mana. The only other card I would replace would have to be Oath of Nissa. It sort of seems out of place to me, and I don't really have any "replacement" suggestions per say, but I can recommend something else. Sultai Emissary is a great card for a deck like this, basically doing the same thing as a Blisperpod. If you do add that you might want to consider readjusting your mana spread to more black. Again, this deck is great, but I think a few minor changes will really tie it together.

So, I would definitely work in Palace Siege, Phyrexian Reclamation, and Dawn of the Dead. Being able to recure your creatures is going to be really helpful with Ayli.
These are some creatures I run in my deck: Wall of Reverence, Divinity of Pride, Wurmcoil Engine, Archangel of Thune, and Rhox Faithmender. Some of them are pricey and may not fit exactly what your going for, but Divinity of Pride is pretty solid.
I run Proper Burial for value on sac triggers. I also like Riot Control, I have a lot of tokens in my meta so the creature count can get crazy, but depending on what decks you play this may not be a good fit.

I run a black oath deck as my pet mono-black deck, he's a great commander with a lot of versatility. Here's a couple cards that might be worthwhile. I like Bloodghast but personally I run Endless Cockroaches just because it's way cheaper and kinda funny. Consuming Vapors is a pretty good way to weed out the board and gain life in the process. Behold the Beyond is a pretty good tutor despite it's cost, and Diabolic Revelation can be a win-con depending on how hard you ramp. I would cut Cellar Door because it's too expensive and unreliable. Stronghold Assassin is a cheaper option in comparison to Attrition and Murder might do you a bit better than Premature Burial. Anowan, the Ruin Sage is good for group sac as is Magus of the Abyss. Archfiend of Depravity helps keep your opponent's board state low. I like Corpse Harvester and Corpse Augur as well. Personally, I'd cut Bloodline Keeper Flip because for his price he isn't worth it because this isn't a vampire tribal deck. Hell's Caretaker and Doomed Necromancer are good for recursion. Fleshbag Marauder is worthwhile too I think for group sac. I'm also a big fan of Palace Siege and Oversold Cemetery for passive recursion. Flesh Carver has also won me a lot of games, the intimidate is very powerful. I'd consider running Westvale Abbey Flip as well, potentially a win-con. Shade's Form and Pestilence are also pretty good enchantments. I would substitute Sorin Markov for Torgaar, Famine Incarnate, he's a sac outlet as well as a big body and you can recur his effect and even use it to bring yourself back up to 20 life. Infernal Offering is also a pretty useful card in my experience. Maybe consider Alhammarret's Archive too if you want to make your card draw and life gain more impactful. Those are just a few suggestion, hope it's helpful!! Mono-black is my passion haha

Thanks for the suggestion Ravenrose! Regarding Wild Pair, I will have to check for power/toughness combinations in the deck, though I think there are many. One of my friends already runs a deck with it, so I don't want to be "repetitive" sort of speak. Where Ancients Tread is definitely good, though it could be better to run a Warstorm Surge. I don't know if it's really worth the mana investment over just playing a dragon. Quicksilver Amulet and Dragon Arch are really good, though I already run a deck with those (here it is: Drag from the Future), focused on cheating creatures into play, so I don't feel like adding them. Again Palace Siege seems like spending mana for something I must wait a turn to use, rather than a dragon I can use immediately.

I have a few suggestions for your dragon deck. I love the Smaug theme and title, by the way. But I have two enchantments in my own Dragon deck that is a win con: Wild Pair plus Where Ancients Tread. I assure you - those cards have upgraded my deck a lot. Quicksilver Amulet and Dragon Arch also cheat dragons in if Wild Pair is not there yet. I also advise Palace Siege. I hope these help! I would love for you to check out my Dracarys deck!
