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.

Also what other ways were you making treasures with Revel in Riches? Budget?
Bloodghast Might get some good use here for a reoccurring sac
Sorry for 2 comments. Wouldn't let me edit my last one.

Hey Squirrel_of_War, thank you for checking my list and making suggestions. The Lack of free sac outlets will be diminished in the Future. I’ve bought an Phyrexian Altar, Goblin Bombardment and Yahenni, Undying Partisan. I dont want to abuse dockside like i dont want to win with Revel in Riches. I‘m a Bit affraid of playing without the Signets but lets See how it turns out. Sadly the Corona Virus stops our playgroup meeting this saturday :/
Hope you See all alright!

Hey discipleofgary73! At first, let me thank you a lot for your feedback. It's very helpful.
Your theme suggestions are all really nice and I already tested some of them before to come up with the version presented there.
Those which didn't make the cut were the following ones: Pestilence Demon (a cool card, with the perfect flavorness, despite being too clunky atm for my meta - I'll add it to the maybeboard for more casual runs), Phyrexian Plaguelord (a pretty good creature removal I'm not convinced about being needed there / nice flavor tho), Pox (land hate always draws you a big target on the head in my pod, but still this could be a game-changing card that fits the theme and powers up Burning Sands / I'm definitely up to try it again), Torment of Hailfire (even if I like that card as one - if not maybe the one, the chosen one - of my favorites, I'm a bit bored of playing it all my decks containing Black - but you're right, it does make sense in there).
I do like the suggestion of Bubbling Muck as most of the deck is black-centered, I'll certainly make room for it. Pontiff of Blight also feels nice, but I think I already got too many mana sinks and don't storm off efficiently enough to use him at its best. Heartless Hidetsugu is an interesting one. It's some bonkers lifeloss outlet I'll always want in a Rakdos, Lord of Riots deck, not sure if it goes there though because of the redundancy it creates with just a bit better cards. Torment of Scarabs is good but one-sided, and generates some hate / I cut Painful Quandary for that reason so I doubt about it being better. Binding Agony is a weird card I actually didn't know it existed - it's like a cheap Repercussion onto one creature - which feels fair. With White enchantment recursion and infinite doll-combos it could be dope I second you on that, I'll see if I figure out a way where it could be nearly as effective there since it's surely an appealing tool.
Otherwise I also tried Black Market for some time, but preferred to run Revel in Riches over it given that it does allow me to generate other mana sources than only black ones. I'm still not really sure about it, but having both in the list feels redundant as the ramp for pestilence effects to occur asap wasn't the main problem I was facing through my few games. I might still reconsider it if things don't stand this way. It's not that cheap to play at 5ccm and doesn't make any difference with Revel in Riches at the attention it attracts from my playgroup removals.
Even if it's a bit sad, I've to admit that Garza is pretty much useless as it stands. Sometimes in long-term games where everyone is playing Control and exterminated the aggro players, I'm able to cast her and draw between one or two cards with her second ability, but that's all. I wish there was a way to make us of her without choosing to go for a typical Voltron strategy involving the Swords' package / Greaves / Jitte / etc. That being told, Kusari-Gama could be of use if I decide to go for more creatures. The whole new Sword of Sinew and Steel you also suggested enables me to deal with things actually out of my range and I might consider tuning up a bit the decklist for it. Scytheclaw is cool and fits the themes, I forgot about that card.
Smoke is overall a really good card, I just hope it doesn't turn the deck too much into a Staxxy one / feels pretty good against Saskia. I'm not fond of Counterflux but I guess it also could be useful against this annoying Pod dude. Fool's Demise is a card I never played because I always felt it was overcosted, but I might give it its chance for once and see what happens!
I'll let you know about future changes if you're interested, thanks again for your help!

@RyProv, Thanks for the suggestions! I think I might go with Thornbite Staff and especially Avatar of Woe. Kaervek the Merciless is mean, no doubt, but I'll probably leave him and Revel in Riches out for now, because they don't really fit the theme as much. But if mana ramp seems to be an issue, I might reconsider Revel. And yes, deck finessing definitely is a slippery slope!

For myself and others, how to optimally pilot the deck
Philosophy behind the deck, ideally should be played with 2+ other players.
You are a hard to kill end game boss, blue is boring busted and broken and is also expensive. Try to go for cards that will keep your hand healthy since we are not running blue so think how much you can squeeze out of one card for maximum value.
while Triskelion will want cards like Defense of the Heart , Tooth and Nail with the added 2 colorless for entwine (if it's already in hand just pick a different creature and still summon the creatures you want in hand.)
Shifting Shadow will still work even if you are trying to destroy an indestructible creature during upkeep reveal the next creature while still keeping the previous one. Can be easily retrieved if no graveyard hate.
Sun Titan can even get a land into play
Chromatic Lantern can negate damage lands and lands with downside and can make useless lands useful.
Birthing Pod you can sacrifice zero cmc token creatures for a one drop ect.

Tsabo Tavoc was my first commander too! So many good memories with her. To help with the high mana cost Revel in Riches could be fun and also offer an alternate win con. In addition Thornbite Staff wrecks with assassins. Avatar of Woe is a beast of an assassin too.
Another creature that makes everyone hate you more (also isn't a bad commander) is Kaervek the Merciless.
But alas, commander deck finessing is a slippery slope that never ends.
