Thank you very much for your suggestions.
Firebones675, I've cut the number of cards to 60 as you said.
LithiumHD, I might replace Sanitarium Skeleton with Diregraf Ghoul and Rotting Fensnake with Highborn Ghoul as soon as I can get my hands on those, and possibly sideboarding some of my answers as you said.
Have a nice day :)

Sanitarium Skeleton is pretty good in decks that sacrifice their own creatures

there, ya go. ok. so first things first. almost all decks in every format contain 60 cards. this is to make sure the cards that are in the deck can be drawn reliably, limiting the number of bad draws that are possible in every deck. right now you are sitting at 81 cards, so you should work on cutting down that number to get it close to 60 if not actually 60. (unless you were planning on making this into a commander deck in which case you would need to add cards)
Now, as for the actual cards that make up the 60. the number of lands you have is actually not too bad for running a reliable deck. anywhere from 20-24 lands is decent, just really depends on what the mana curve looks like when you're finished.
you're running only one copy of most cards as of right now, which isn't the greatest for a couple of reasons. the biggest going back on that topic of reliable and since you wanted to make this deck a "competitive" one, then you're going to need it to be reliable. take your powerful cards and try adding multiple copies of each, making sure that you keep an eye on your mana curve, so that it doesn't get too high.
lastly, you need to make sure that the deck has good synergy. there's a decent amount of cards in the deck that rely on you sacrificing other permanents or creatures, so it would be nice to add more cards that either enjoy others being sacrificed like Zulaport Cutthroat or cards that like being sacrificed themselves like Sanitarium Skeleton

Xazrael Just an update for you, I went and built this deck, and so far I have been playing it against my friends, and so far have gone 7-2! The real MVP of this deck though is Sanitarium Skeleton (Especially when combined with Hidden Stockpile & Vampiric Rites), this card has won me many games by its recursion ability, allowing me to bring it back on their end step, and slowly pinging them with damage, or giving me a creature that I can recur for cards like Bone Splinters. I will be changing out some of the sideboard cards for some of the more expensive cards in standard now E.G. Declaration in Stone, but I do realize that this is a budget deck. This deck did struggle against my buddies control deck however, as anticipated, but was able to pull through in about 50% of the matches. All in all, I love the theme of this deck, it's super fun to play, and very aggressive and interactive!

Went well! First round went terrible, I kept greedy one land hands, not knowing what I was doing. second round, I destroyed a WG Slivers with Crypt Rats. Mono blue Delver 1-1-1. Dead Weight and Rofellos's Gift did work there for me. I ended up stuck in a Spore Frog loop without seeing how to get out for the third game draw. I see the way out of the loop now with Sanitarium Skeleton.

You've got four Blood Moons in your deck, which means you'll likely draw more than one per game. If you're playing against removal-heavy opponents, that's fine, but if not your second moon will be a dead draw. I recommend something like Lightning Axe or Heir of Falkenrath Flip to discard those extraneous moons, or just running fewer of them. Also, Bloodghast is probably more effective than Sanitarium Skeleton, if you don't mind spending the cash for it. Good luck.

Turn one is all about hand disruption in MHO. I would recommend Surgical Extraction. As for creatures...... Guul Draz Assassin seems interesting.
