Looks great! Personally I would make these swaps:
Vraska's Contempt --> Syr Konrad, the Grim. I think you don't need creature removal since your general does that, and you could probably easily get rid of any problem planeswalkers by just wiping the board and swinging.

The tokens made by Sengir Autocrat can't pilot vehicles he could probably go. Buried Ruin would be a good land so you can return some of your spent vehicles. I think it's buget friendly as well. It used to be not too bad anyway. That land from kaladesh that let's you tutor an artifact is pretty good too forgot the name of it tho

Profet93 It wouldn't allow me to edit my previous comment :( I took to long writing the post XD.
I'll sit down and make a list of some combos. An easy one that comes to mind is Buried Alive + Living Death . Depending on our starting hands and stuff, if we have some ramp, tutor, and buried alive or living death we can start going off.
String would look something like:
Sac 3 Serf Tokens + Sengir Autocrat to Razaketh, the Foulblooded , which generates 4 treasure tokens. Searching for something like: Dark Ritual + Mana Crypt + Blood Artist + Viscera Seer . These cards could be anything but the idea is that now we can cast Chainer from mana crypt+treasure token mana, use the remaining 1 black mana to cast Dark Ritual to bring back Sengir Autocrat , sac 1 Serfs, searching for literally any card you want. Cast Viscera Seer +Sac remaining 2 Serfs to Seer, which gives us another Chainer activation, to bring back autocrat. 2 more serf sacs to seer and we cast Blood Artist . The string is fairly flexible and only requires 14 life assuming we play this at the start of the game. Something I thought of quickly on the spot and not optimized but hopefully gives you the idea of what we can do.

Thank you for getting back to me regarding my comments, it is much appreciated!
There's a reason Imp's Mischief is infamous! :D But I understand where you're coming from. Its just a pet card of mine and I recomend it to every black deck because it just works (at least in my meta). It sucks not being able to cast it at times and people being aware. I have a similar issue in my meta, although not as prevalent, I still love it <3
Interesting points, I never noticed that with Wurmcoil Engine and your argument for breaking parity with Sengir Autocrat makes sense. The question is, how often, how reliablely can you assemble that to the point where you don't pay 4 mana for a measly card that doesn't do much on it's own. If you had more tutors, I could understand it. I personally like Wurmcoil Engine more because the life link and deathtouch but it depends. Wurmcoil is also an artifact which has been relevant (good and bad) at times.
Regarding artifact hate, I completely agree. I just wanted to show you additional options as Karn, the Great Creator has been a thorn in my side recently. All is dust > Sheolded would be a good test swap but as you said, time will tell if thats needed.
For card draw, I'm surprised I missed necro in the deck, oops. Syphon Mind is really powerful, draw 4, each opponent discards a card. I understand you would like to set up more of a boardstate, but I feel with the overall lack of draw, syphon mind should not be overlooked. Getting opponent's expensive cards in the yard is "setting up" in a way. But your point is valid.

Thanks for checking out the deck and for the comments. I greatly appreciate it! I'll start from the top:
Imp's Mischief - The card is great without question and can be game winning in the right situation, however, I think it's a much better fit in a Xiahou Dun, the One-Eyed control deck, which can easily recur it every turn. As I have to rely on XHD being in the 99, the value of Imp's Mischief is lower for Chainer. I'll never tutor for it and end up having to draw into it. I've also had situations where it sat in my hand being unable to cast because people are casting non target sorceries/instants or taking non targetable extra turns XD. Another aspect is that the card became fairly infamous in my meta and people were aware of the tricks I could do with Imp's Mischief or Sudden Spoiling . When I was leaving 2-3 mana open it was fairly telegraphed. Over time I may add it back in as I love the tricky unexpected stuff in black (Imps, Sudden Spoiling, Darkness )
In regards to Grave Titan , the slot was contested by three cards. Originally I was running Sengir Autocrat , which in my opinion is superior to both Grave Titan and Wurmcoil Engine . I figured I needed some additional lifegain as I encountered some life issues in the previous game sessions. Wurmcoil Engine fits the similar niche as Grave Titan and with Nim Deathmantle Zombie clause, allows for Gravecrawler loops. Wurmcoil containing Lifelink was what made me choose it over Grave Titan. With Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Ashnod's Altar , we could make infinite deathtouch or lifelink tokens + infinite mana. I've spent most of the day today thinking about this slot and ultimately I think I'm going back to Sengir Autocrat . It has better synergy with Skullclamp and Razaketh, the Foulblooded AND most importantly breaks parity on Chainer/Altars/Aristocrats/ETC. We end up netting and 1 life as opposed to Grave Titan or Wurmcoil Engine .
About Artifact/Enchantment hate: I chose Oblivion Stone over Nevinyrral's Disk due to how many mana doubling cards I'm running. This allows me to play and active O-stone on the same turn, which is less telegraphed than NDisk. Also it doesn't suffer requiring to untap+survive a turn on a table to use, which makes it superior in my eyes. If I had to add another card it would be All Is Dust most likely cutting Sheoldred, Whispering One . Time will tell if this is required but at this state I'm unsure yet. In a dreamland we can 'theoretically' deal all perms with Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + Meteor Golem + Ashnod's Altar + Nim Deathmantle .
Necropotence is there :). I do like Syphon Mind but I'm running Night's Whisper + Sign in Blood as they're cheaper to use. I'd rather be developing/Controling board w/ 4cmc cards. Nights Whisper+Sign in Blood could be subbed for something else. I'll test em as is for now.
The three lands that I removed could be detrimental but I'm not sure. I'll need to test it live, but I've been goldfishing for hours every day throughout the week. 30 lands seems fine with the recent minor rebuild.

Hi, thank you for your advices, they're precisely what i needed! First of all i know that the description is rough and approximate, when i'll arrive to 100 cards beeing sure i'll fix it once for all.
Fetid Heath , Phyrexian Tower and Diabolic Intent are surely better, and are in my wishlist for now, but i'm already investing in my Kaalia deck and except for some budget utilities (like Wake the Dead ) i prefer to wait.
Talking about the cutting (that was my biggest problem):
Cathodion is effectively the first card to remove
Pitiless Plunderer and Geist-Honored Monk have both better alternatives ( Pawn of Ulamog and Sengir Autocrat ). The second was in for giving more possibilities to get a Nim's piece of Combo and a Xathrid Necromancer target. But i think you're right and i'll cut both of them.
I think that Felidar-Restoration + Corpse Knight could be a solution if i can't pass from graveyard ( Rest in Peace & co.), but effectively it's less synergical with Teysa and all the deck. So I'll cut them.
Cutting all this i go to 100 with Teysa Karlov and Elenda, the Dusk Rose still inside: the second is not a good token generator neither is useful with his lifelink, maybe adding a Doom Whisperer to going through the deck looking for missing card? The second is a redundant, if i go infinite i don't need it, but don't you think that in a bad moment of the game a double Teysa, Orzhov Scion or Skullclamp or giving lifelink and vigilance to all the generated tokens could be a good topdeck?
