Abzan Charm is a pretty powerful toolbox spell with options for removal and card draw; excellent EDH value.

Putrefy should probably be another spot removal spell that finds its way into the list. Sometimes the "can't be regenerated" clause is very important.

Duneblast is a great boardwipe that allows you to keep one of your creatures (Elesh Norn, Anafenza, Dragonlord Dromoka, etc).

Putrefy out, replaced by Abrupt Decay

I agree with a lot with what you've said but disagree with about half. The first thing I'll address is Emrakul. She tends to be a game ender in my meta. Granted not all the time, but most of the time. In either case Gratuitous Violence seems like an interesting card to run. I may even try to work Wound Reflection in as well, just for the laughs.

Hatred is a great call. Meshing that with Batterskull so the life lose just being nulled would be fantastic. I'm definitely going to make room for it.

I'm not too keen on Tormod's Crypt or Nihil Spellbomb. They're great cards but can be a dead draw when recursion isn't too involved in the game or graveyards have already been exiled. Though the card draw of the spellbomb is sweet. Jund Charm on the other hand is a good call, I think. It resolves the issue I just gave. Worst case scenario is that I pump up Kresh or someone else and that's never a bad thing.

So far I've felt I've run plenty of removal. Putrefy was actually originally ran but just due to the amount of removal I already have it was the first to go. And I was not going to run Reclamation Sage but I thought about it for a while because I considered Birthing Pod for a long time. It's a card that I get suggested a lot in person so I think it's about time it works its way into the deck. And with that Sage can be another sac outlet to get me some handy four drops.

Thanks for the suggestions! They're appreciated.

You need to take the images linked and make them a little smaller if you can; it makes reading an absolute chore because you're forcing the reader to scroll a lot in order to read what you've typed in between images.

That said, I'll list my suggestions:

Birthing Pod is first off. You want to sacrifice and gain benefits? This is your card. You can sac off a Marauder, Executioner, or Eternal Witness to grab Disciple if you need to draw, Jarad if you need to kill, and Oracle if you need to ramp- and the benefits only grow the higher up your curve you go. I strongly recommend it as it is a repeatable sacrifice outlet and a way to gain more consistency out of your deck.

Burn Away is terrible and you should run either good removal or good graveyard exile, not some hamfisted combination of both that does neither well. If you want graveyard removal, Tormod's Crypt or Nihil Spellbomb are great, one because it's 0 cost, the other because it draws a card and exiles too. I, personally, think you should be using Reclamation Sage in this deck and it's a shame you don't have it, though you've got Bane/Grip/Slime, so that'd be up to you. If you need more removal, there's always Malicious Affliction or Putrefy which are instant speed and can off a creature no matter its size (lol trying to kill a Ghave, Guru of Spores with Burn Away would be like trying to stop a brushfire by pouring gasoline on it, and doubling up with a 5 mana spell is rough). There's also Jund Charm, which does instant-speed graveyard exile and can function as a Pyroclasm to eliminate mana dorks and tokens, so that's an option too.

Not running Hatred seems like a bad call. Being able to just one-shot somebody by paying 18 life and 5 mana is pretty huge.

Gratuitous Violence is a second Xenagos, God of Revels that works for multiple creatures at once. That might be worth looking into over Emrakul, the Promised End (it's not a bad creature, I just find it mediocre in multiplayer Commander).

Good build but I feel like you have too many lands. I'd cut it down to maybe 40 and add some more removal like Putrefy, Return to Dust, Mortify, etc. or more draw spells like Phyrexian Arena, Harmonize, etc.

also, Putrefy is better than Murder.

You have up to 9 cards - Prey Upon, Deadly Allure and to a certain extent Ulvenwald Tracker - that do nothing if you don't have a creature such as Scavenging Ooze or Phyrexian Obliterator on board.

You can also consider Maelstrom Pulse over some copies of Putrefy since it hits more things
