Read the Bones
Scry 2, then draw two cards. You lose 2 life. (To scry 2, look at the top two cards of your library, then put any number of them on the bottom of your library and the rest on top in any order.)

You can cut out around 4 creatures and maybe 1 land to fit in five slots for card draw. Card draw allows you to see more of your deck, and gives you more options throughout the game. It is frankly quite difficult to go overboard on card draw, as you'd have to fit so much card draw that your "card draw" draws you into more "card draw".
I suggest the following: Painful Truths , Read the Bones , Night's Whisper , Ancient Craving and Ambition's Cost . You can also check out this link for a decent deckbuilding framework that gives you a balanced deck.

BW control generally involves discard spells. You can get some good ones with Duress , Despise , and Castigate . If your friends play mostly creatures, then Harsh Scrutiny is good too. Hymn to Tourach is relatively cheap, but it's very very very very strong, play it at your own risk of creating an arms race between you and your playgroup.
Healer's Hawk is definitely more of an aggro card, if you want an effect like that, I would recommend Vampire Nighthawk . Obzedat, Ghost Council is incredibly strong, as is Blood Baron of Vizkopa . Vona, Butcher of Magan is incredible too.
I love merciless eviction, but you should really only run one, I would recommend you play some copies of Day of Judgment , Languish , Wrath of God , and Ritual of Soot to get those wraths earlier and keep the board clear.
I cannot recommend enough some Isolated Chapel s, Temple of Silence , Concealed Courtyard s, Shambling Vent s, and Caves of Koilos . Fetid Heath has recently plummeted in price as well, but I don't know your budget.
You'll definitely want some card draw to refill your hand too. In these colors it comes at the cost of life, for the most part. My personal favorites in casual decks are Twilight Prophet , but she is ridiculously expensive, and Kaya, Ghost Assassin . Arguel's Blood Fast Flip, Phyrexian Arena , Greed , Sign in Blood , Night's Whisper , Damnable Pact , Dark Bargain , Read the Bones , and Midnight Oil .
Hope this was at least a little helpful!

Ashes to Ashes, Read the Bones, Night's Whisper, Sign in Blood, Angelic Purge, Afterlife, Snuff Out, Unmake, Pentarch Ward, Cho-Manno's Blessing, Blessing of Leeches are all really good and serve you as card draw/ protection or control.

Hey, consider adding sac outlets? Creatures or other cards that have an ability to sacrifice a Sap:
- Ashnod's Altar
- Deathspore Thallid
- Vitaspore Thallid
- Viscera Seer
- Carrion Feeder
- Evolutionary Leap
- Krav, the Unredeemed
The nice thing about these cards are they are all repeatable sac and most have no mana cost activations to sac a Sap. Ashnods is not a budget card, but I'm suggesting it because it's very good with Slimefoot since you make colorless mana when you sac a creature. Skullclamp is amazing draw with 1/1 Sap tokens or sac outlets.
Budget lands to consider:
- Command Tower: one of the best lands in Commander.
- Llanowar Wastes
- Tainted Wood
- Hissing Quagmire
- High Market: sac outlet.
Other Sap themed cards to consider adding:
- Druidic Satchel
- Tendershoot Dryad
- Sprout Swarm
- Scatter the Seeds
- Saproling Migration
- Sporecrown Thallid
- Necrogenesis: exile your opponent's creature in their graveyard to make a Sap.
Cards that give you a repeatable source of Saps for no or little mana cost are very good: Satchel/Tendershoot/Mycoloth/Necrogenesis
Other cards that have good interaction with Saps to consider:
Other good support cards:
- Eternal Witness
- Golgari Charm
- Beast Within
- Golgari Signet
- Seasons Past
- Nature's Claim
- Kodama's Reach
- Pitiless Plunderer
- Deathrite Shaman
- Elves of Deep Shadow
- Elvish Mystic
- Fertile Ground
- Read the Bones
- Diabolic Intent
- Lifecrafter's Bestiary
Intent is not a budget card, but I'm suggesting it because it has a very powerful effect when you sac a Sap.
I offer more help. If you like some of these suggestions I can help you to make cuts.
Good luck with your deck.

Dont know what you are trying to do with the deck since you have several cards for others builds in here.Dont see a use for Bloodbond Vampire since you not gaining much life.Bloodhusk Ritualist for my deck wasnt that good. Kheru Bloodsucker not worth since you dont have my creatures for it.No reason for him at all unless its a fillerSkeletal Changeling.Chainer's Edict feel like there are better things that do this. Planar Bridge tutors are better. Not the best for how you have this deck built right nowBlighted Fen. Geier Reach Sanitarium dont use lol. Piranha Marsh use a Swamp. Not worth it Sorin's Thirst. Wound Reflection great card but not made for this deck.
better land drawMikokoro, Center of the Sea
artifact: Sword of the Animist
