When Priest of Gix enters the battlefield, add (Black)(Black)(Black) to your mana pool.
Also consider putting it Priest of Gix It's a human after all.
consider Go for the Throat , Nyxathid , Megrim , Distress , Duress , Abyssal Nocturnus , Mind Rot , Bile Blight , Cry of Contrition , Hymn to Tourach , Liliana of the Veil ... also extra mana stuff ... Dark Ritual , Cabal Ritual , Priest of Gix , Crypt Ghast
I think you can safely cut the Tendrils win-con (Tendrils of Agony , Priest of Gix , and Recurring Nightmare ). Having 3 entirely different win-cons in a deck weakens it, makes it less consistent. I'd focus on the reanimator/dark depths plan.
Pithing Needle simply isn't good enough to be mainboard here. I'd cut it to the sideboard.
Since you are running black, I'd run black's most powerful discard spells. 4x Thoughtsieze, 4x Hymn to Tourach . 4x Liliana of the Veil would be another powerful card to fit in. That leaves room for 2 more cards. Ether 2 more Griselbrand , or perhaps other reanimation targets would go good.
The landbase is on a tight budget, due to ten other EDH decks. But it did remind me I should have a spare Tainted Field kicking around.
Some notable mentions to this deck with decent ETB effects:

Detain 2 Creatures Azorius Justiciar
Draw Power Disciple of Bolas
Forced SacFleshbag Marauder
-1/-1 Counters (indestructible killer) Skinrender
Skip Combat Stonehorn Dignitary
Land Removal (depending on your LCG rules) Sundering Titan
