Revel in Riches
Whenever a creature an opponent controls dies, create a colorless Treasure artifact token with "T, Sacrifice this artifact: Add one mana of any color to your mana pool."
At the beginning of your upkeep, if you control ten or more Treasures, you win the game.

Since you have red and white in your deck a card that I would recommend is Sunforger since it gives you access to any instants in your deck with cmc 4 or less that have white or red in their casting cost, this means that when it is on the field you can use it to cast Anguished Unmaking from your deck as well as any other instant spell that falls under the conditions, some favorites that I know of are Teferi's Protection and Chaos Warp . Also since you are running Revel in Riches and Smothering Tithe a card that goes really well with it is Anointed Procession since it doubles the treasure tokens made,

The thing i'm noticing first is a pretty big lack of removal. I'd consider replacing Kaya's Wrath with Fumigate , as it is a bit easier to cast and will gain you some more life. For single targets, Mortify is often much better than Final Payment , and Hero's Downfall is always a good choice. Revel in Riches is cute, but even in a casual deck I don't think you will be doing much with it. For fun effects, I'd recommend Mausoleum Guard or Maalfeld Twins . Sifter of Skulls fits into this perfectly, and I'd consider using that to replace Shadows of the Past .

Smothering Tithe generates treasure like crazy. I realize you're not running white, so perhaps the point is moot, but if you're really keen on making a winning Revel in Riches deck, it might worth thinking about a w/b build instead of b/r. Also, as far as I'm concerned, Smothering Tithe is the most powerful non-green ramp card to come out since Crypt Ghast , so if you ever play anything other than Standard, it's sure to be a worthwhile spell to have on hand. GL!

I play mono black Belzenlok (lots cards are lots of fun!) and I'd recommend things like Boompile and Nevinyrral's Disk so you can play games with enchantment and artifact players. Plus you don't have any hard wipes that let you leave Yahenni as the last man standing with his ability, which would be super strong!
Watch out for Revel in Riches , people will hate on it or you real quick!
Also, how has Temporal Extortion treated you?
Cheers and +1

I would add cards that give you advantage through all the sacrificing and creature removal you have going on. Dark Prophecy would be my first add, and you might be able to pretty easily trade for a $3 Midnight Reaper , being from a currently printed set, and if Grave Pact and Dictate of Erebos are too pricey, Butcher of Malakir and Grim Haruspex could be good substitutes, especially since you have the means to reanimate him after a wrath. Black Market is a pretty unique effect, although Revel in Riches is a good win-con, if not as powerful on the mana-source side.
I would also look into adding Bojuka Bog . You might also want a little mill to speed things up, since you're light on win conditions. Dread Summons is a good late-game punch, while Ghoulcaller's Bell could be a good turn-1 play for a deck without a lot of early plays. It That Betrays could be a good win condition, too, if you're forcing sacrifices.
As for cuts, I don't think you have enough demons to consistently turn on Mark of the Oni . I would reconsider Ashes to Ashes , since you want reanimation targets, not to exile creatures. Mortuary Mire is a little weird, since you like to play things on the cheap from the yard, if anything, it's working backwards against what your deck wants to be doing. Wanderer's Twig and Traveler's Amulet . I feel like I'm missing something, but it makes no sense to me. Armillary Sphere , less so, but I would run Myriad Landscape and Isolated Watchtower first.

I thought I would comment as I also chose a Pirate Tribal deck as my first EDH deck which I built about 4 months ago Pirate Tribal Final. It took me some time to work out what direction I wanted to go in with the deck, being Grixis, a preference to one or two colours seemed sensible. Also, pirates are sneaky and like treasure and stealing, right?
I chose to focus on Blue, using evasive abilities to enable me to sneak pirates past blockers, gaining benefits such as card draw from Bident of Thassa and steal the permanents of my opponents with Admiral Beckett Brass . I also went for a treasure subtheme, using cards such as Revel in Riches , Brass's Bounty and Mechanised Production to rapidly generate treasures, either as win-cons or for high-cost spells such as Insurrection or Kindred Dominance .
At the moment, your deck is about equally balanced between all three colours, with limited mana fixing (which treasures would help with), therefore you might stall early by drawing the wrong combination of colours. I would maybe try and lean a bit on one subtheme/colour, more than the rest. Also, you have a number of weak cards in the deck at the moment, Lightning-Rig Crew , Wily Goblin , Sentinel Totem , Smelt , Act of Treason , Fevered Visions , Navigator's Ruin , Raiders' Wake etc. to name a few. Additionally, you use a lot of cards to tap opponents creatures, rather than making yours evasive/unblockable. Many of those cards aren't providing sufficient power to justify their inclusion.
TLDR: I think you are trying to do too much and therefore your deck is spread too thin in important areas. I would pick a specific game plan and build around it.
