bushido_man96. Yes, Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder seems nice, but I'm usually going to have high power creatures, so he would be immediately killed. If anything, I would put a card that can just bring back Thrilling Encore, since it is the same mana cost, and that will be of more use when I will sacrificing tokens. Krenko, Mob Boss is a little bit too slow for me. Ghoulcaller Gisa is an almost definitely; I'll think about it. Most of the rest of the cards in that paragraph I have considered, and rest of the cards seem pointless except for the tokens generation, or just have one aspect about them that I would rather not have to satisfy(e.g. the mana that needs to be spent for Pentavus to create tokens or the artifact requirements.) For the next paragraph, I probably add one of two of those cards. I should have clarified a bit more that I need things the get sacrificed, instead of things that sacrifice. Archfiend of Depravity most certainly going to be added.Diplomatic Immunity as well. Distended Mindbender allows me some vision into an enemies' hand, while having a lower CMC with a sacrificed creature. Patron of the Moon and Dreamscape Artist are there for a bit of ramp. The deck's average CMC is 5.5, so I would prefer to have as many lands as possible onto the battlefield. Lotus Bloom is a free source of mana that gives me an extra boost when I need it. Sire of Stagnation, Blight Herder, and Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur is what I meant by "fine tuning". I would like to have at least some card draw, all while inhibiting opponents. Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur and Sire of Stagnation would be great if they had a "may" in between the "you draw". But that what Omniscience and the ramp is for, and if the card draw gets too out of hand, I can just sacrifice them. "...if you're opponents aren't playing creatures, they can't sacrifice them". Yes, good point, but that is why I have annihilator creatures. Thank you for the suggestion, and please give me feedback on my reasoning! Thank you once again!

Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder and Krenko, Mob Boss are some good token generators. You could really do your mana curve a favor and probably go with early goblin drops to support the Krenko rout. Ghoulcaller Gisa is pretty solid, and for lots of fun, equip her with Thornbite Staff. That can make a lot of tokens you can then sacrifice for fun stuff. Kher Keep is a solid land to include. Even cards like Myr Battlesphere and Pentavus can provide you with sac outlets. Hangarback Walker is another solid option. Blue has options like Thopter Spy Network and Efficient Construction for generating tokens.
So, with your commander, what you care about is creatures getting sacrificed. Not dying, but sacrificed specifically. So, the best way to help yourself out is to not rely on your opponents to provide the sac fodder. For that, you need more sac outlets of your own. Cards like Carrion Feeder, Yahenni, Undying Partisan, Viscera Seer, Phyrexian Ghoul and Nantuko Husk are all free sac outlets that you let you start putting counters on your commander really quick. Red offers Goblin Bombardment, which could be switched out with Vicious Shadows.
Archfiend of Depravity would fit your theme well, too, along with the Eldrazi you have with the Annihiliator mechanic, but you don't need too many of them. Running three or four of them is probably sufficient.
Distended Mindbender could probably go. I fail to see how it fits what you want it to do with your Commander. Patron of the Moon doesn't look like it fits, and neither does Dreamscape Artist. I'd cut Sire of Stagnation as well. Blight Herder probably isn't great, either. Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur is a good card, and good for card draw, but if you're opponents aren't playing creatures, they can't sacrifice them, and it just might make you a big fat target. I'd ditch Lotus Bloom for something more like Worn Powerstone or even a Mind Stone.
I hope these suggestions help. Thraximundar looks like a fun commander to run. I hope these suggestions help you to focus the deck more, and make it run more smoothly. Let me know what you think.

Some humble card suggestions (artifacts I like and think could fit):
Triskelavus Smaller than Pentavus by 2 (I only just now made the Tri - Pent connection there) and can't put the 1/1 back on, but instead those 1/1 can ping. If you can reliably get the emblem, it's a straight upgrade considering it will return with 3 counters every time.
Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer Good protection until you get your forge.

So, here's the list I'm currently running:

I'm running several edict creatures to try to ensure Glissa triggers, and running a few ways to bounce them back to my hand.
But, I'm not sure about that route, and I've ordered a handful of cards and thinking of changing things up a bit. I've considered adding Myr mana dorks like you have done, and adding creatures like Ancient Stone Idol and Pentavus for some more power. I guess I'm just looking for some thoughts and options.

I have a similar deck, I might put it on TappedOut soon (but without infect). If I do, I'll post the full decklist here :)
Some good cards from my deck are:
