Currently I am in the process of buying another Burnished Hart and Knight of the White Orchid to add to the deck. Crypt Ghast seems like a solid choice as well for the ramp and I seem to be leaning heavily towards having more swamps.
I didn't know about Tainted Remedy , but that is crazy. I don't think I will need it for my meta, but it may come in handy for the future.
Thanks for your suggestions!

Crypt Ghast ramp and has Extort.
Tainted Remedy if your meta plays life gain.

You are making the same mistake a lot of people do, you have all these cards that will generate you sac fodder later in the game but little actual early game sac fodder.
Crypt Ghast helps ramp and it has “Extort”.
Bontu's Monument is cost reduction ramp and and damage to all opponents on you casting a creature.
Bontu the Glorified is a good sac outlet with a death trigger built in.
Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim is a sac outlet and removal in one.
Spawning Pit free sac outlet creature generator.

Bishop of the bloodstained (little value for a one time effect at 5 cmc) - Bloodlord Vaasgoth - Massacre Girl (Hurts you) - Anowon, the Ruin Sage (too Slow) - Tempt with Immortality (There are better graveyard cards than this and its just not good in this deck) - Eldest Reborn (Just no synergy with the deck) - The biggest issue I see if you have a lot of cards that bring stuff back from the graveyard. Vamps nor Edgar care about that truely unless that is just the route you want to go down. The only one I think you keep is Faith's Reward just in response to a board wipe, but its a dead card if someone cyclonic rifts or exiles all creatures. Your deck severely lacks card draw as well. A few vamps I suggest that are just plain good and help with draw.
Keep going with the theme you want but you need card draw to draw the cards you want, and you still want better vamps than some of the ones that are too slow or don’t really help all the vamps and cards in your maybe are amazing, and will lower your CMC too and the cards I listed above I think could also help. Good luck man!

Planar Void : It is important to run graveyard hate in (almost) every deck in EDH in my opinion because of how frequently and effectively many decks in the format lean towards abusing it. This deck does have other ways to deal with graveyards with Scavenger Grounds and Bojuka Bog , but those are one shot effects and in my meta I require something that sticks around a bit more.
The nice thing about Planar Void is that it triggers on something going to the graveyard which gives me the opportunity to stack other triggers and abilities as I desire. You mention Athreos, God of Passage ; that ability would still trigger allowing you to force an opponent to either take 3 damage from something dying or returning it to your hand before the Planar Void trigger resolves.
Other things it synergises well with are Blood Artist and Phyrexian Reclamation . Blood Artist allows you to still see death triggers from other creatures dying and Phyrexian Reclamation allows you to return creatures you control to your hand while the Void trigger is on the stack.

can be tricky sometimes but it's enough to cast it only if necessary, and same goes for the
, so i try to never have them out at the same time.
Both Lich's Mastery and Stunning Reversal were in previous iterations of the deck, I decided to cut them because they weren't reliable enough. Lich's Mastery because the deck doesn't focus too much on lifegain and tends to have a small board (not taking artifacts into consideration since they are often very much needed and I wouldn't want to exile them); and Stunning Reversal because in my meta being at 1 life pretty much equals being dead anyway, so I ended up never wanting to cast it. Maybe in the future I could at least try giving the Mastery another chance, but right now I feel comfortable with the amount of ways I have to cast Phage.
Withering Boon was also in a previous version of the deck, alongside with Imp's Mischief , Thrull Wizard and other more controlly-ish cards. I ended up cutting them in favor of board wipes or combo pieces; they weren't reliable enough as actual disruption and I never used them to put Phage in the yard and pull her back later. The only way I have to get her back to my hand from the graveyard is with Phyrexian Reclamation , so if I were to use Withering Boon to put her there I would basically find myself spending 11 mana, 5 life and 2 cards just to "draw" her, and then I would still have to cast her for 7 more mana. It just wasn't worth it.
Thanks for the suggestions!
