Dankey: If you are looking for a BU sacrifice deck while controlling the stack then there are a few options. Muldrotha, the Gravetide is just a really busted card overall and if you like the oppressive features of the Sultai triple colors it will give you a lot of value. Dralnu, Lich Lord sounds like what you are looking for but he also has a very severe drawback considering things like Pyrohemia and even Anger of the Gods exist. Wydwen, the Biting Gale is a very safe and annoying option. Although her abilities aren't directly related to sacrificing permanents, you can dodge removal (Either theirs or your own) with her ability. tjalling: I always think there is room for improvement but I love this deck.

I've found some time to update the deck based on your suggestions;
I've removed Fate Unraveler from the deck as you suggested. I've replaced him with Phyrexian Tyranny instead of Underworld Dreams mainly because the UBR cost feels a bit better than BBB cost as I worry I would struggle to have three black mana earlier in the game.
I've added one boardwipe as you suggested. I didn't use Volcanic Fallout because it's too unversitale and I didn't use Fiery Confluence mainly because I just don't feel like buying an unnecessarily expensive card if I can replace with a cheaper boardwipe. I've settled with Evacuation for now. I may replace it with a better boardwipe or one that fits the theme of the deck better later. I'm still considering Pyrohemia.
As for the other cards you've suggested;
Repercussion is a ridiculous card which I will have to try at least for the fun of it; it will probably not find a permanent place in the deck though as I feel like it would "undermine" all the work the rest of the deck did in the game by just ending the game with Blasphemous Act and it wouldn't really matter what happened in the game before. (It's difficult to explain what I mean but I hope you somewhat understand what I mean.)
Other your suggestion were all reasonable but I did not use them mainly because I play in a very casual meta with my friends so my decks can be a bit more fun and casual aswell. (For example, I don't have to worry that much about extremely consistent fast aggro decks etc. :-)
Sorry for the long answer; I wanted to explain my decisions.

Great looking deck! I like how you've combined themes. Here are some ideas on what I would change to make this even more awesome:
though all of the creatures you're using work very well with your chosen themes, most of them are rather expensive to cast. This makes it difficult for you to deal with decks that open aggressively; also because the wipes you've chosen are relatively expensive to cast. To counteract early aggression, I would consider adding Propaganda, Pyrohemia, Fiery Confluence and/or Volcanic Fallout.
Since you're running so many 'pain' cards, it might be beneficial to consider adding Neheb, the Eternal; the extra mana he generates can surely be put to good use in your deck.
Hope any of this helps. If you feel inclined, please have a look at one of more of my EDH decks; I'd like your opinion on any of them.

You could solve the deathtouch problem with the archetype of finality I see in your maybeboard. Also, Sidisi, Undead Vizier is a great deathtoucher.

And yes; the name was meant to be a shoutout to a Doctor Who episode that's a Tour de Force as well; though the Azbantium part might be a spoiler... X/
Before we start, I'd like to give out a shout out to DespairFaction for supporting this (albeit) even harder cause to do than Boros Stax.
According to him (I think...?), this kind of deck needs stuff to slowdown opponents before they get the upper hand. Since Firesong & Sunspeaker is known for Red Nonpermanent Lifegain via Burn, I wanted this to be the primary clause. Actually, all this time, my Prime Directive is to Promote Boros from its current highest tier from 3 to 2.5 at worst. To add upon the Red card idea, I do not want White stuff promoting Lifegain as it doesn't promote enough Burn in return. I already have quite a lot of X-Burn, but no other consistent burn as well. That said, bottom line: I would love to see stuff in Boros Colors that can lockdown certain strategies in cEDH. If you can find any, even if it's an Artifact, don't be afraid to post it in the link above.

Braid of Fire is definitely tempting. Xantcha is an amazing sink for this card. My only concern would be how long the game lasts. Two mana is such a low investment that it might be worth putting into the deck anyways. Also would make a stronger case for Pyrohemia getting added back into the deck too!
As far as Vampiric Link goes, I think you're spot-on with your analysis. I don't think the lifegain offsets the potential of getting 2-for-1'd and once my opponents know that I'm gaining life for every Xantcha activation; they will probably stop doing it. It also would be a nonbo with 3 cards currently in the deck (Sulfuric Vortex, Havoc Festival, and Rampaging Ferocidon). Along the same line of thinking, I considered adding Phyresis into the deck. However, since it would be the only source of infect, she would either need to attack the same enemy twice or have someone pump 15 mana into her activated ability before she (or the enchantment) gets removed. Alternatively there could be a damage doubler on the battlefield, but I think that's bordering on thinking too wishfully.
Adding in Braid of Fire is really tempting but also hard to slot in. As I mentioned in the update section, I'm trying to add more card draw, another boardwipe (Pyrohemia or Chain Reaction?), and a land. You could somewhat make an argument for Braid of Fire being card draw with Xantcha, but that might be stretching it too much. I'm also looking for cuts in the deck so that I can include those categories of cards; but I love every card that's currently in there. Thinking Crown of Doom even though it encourages attacks and potentially turns Xantcha into a 3 turn kill instead of a 5 turn. Let me know what you think!
