Shadows of the Past
Whenever a creature dies, scry 1. (Look at the top card of your library. You may put that card on the bottom of your library.)
: Each opponent loses 2 life and you gain 2 life. Activate this ability only if there are four or more creature cards in your graveyard.

would Blood Seeker, Malakir Cullblade, Yahenni, Undying Partisan, Sangromancer, Ob Nixilis, Unshackled, Shadows of the Past and Eternal Thirst fit into the deck, to gain benefits from your opponents tokens dying?

alright, so I did some more digging - I've been kicking around a similar deck idea for a while. here's some of the stuff you might be interested in:
Pain for everyone:
Citadel of Pain, Copper Tablet, Power Surge (read the errata for this one, it makes more sense, Shadows of the Past, Pyrohemia, Pestilence, Dark Suspicions (or Bulwark, depending. kinda mutually exclusive), Rivalry, Skullcage, Wheel of Torture, Iron Maiden and Circle of Affliction
No creatures for You!
Death Pits of Rath (which couples well with Pyrohemia and Pestilence from earlier), along with Circle of Flame, Heat Stroke, Magmatic Core, Mudslide, Wave of Terror, War's Toll, Storage Matrix, and Noetic Scales.
Punishment and protection
probably some stuff in here you considered already, just figured I'd sift through this stuff and see if anything was to your liking

All the elementals! http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Search/Default.aspx?action=advanced&subtype=+[%22Elemental%22]
Cards to cut: Rings of Brighthearth, Ashes of the Fallen (super cool but you want to build the deck to be all elementals anyway), Arc Runner, Ball Lightning, Ball Lightning, Unexpectedly Absent (better removal in edh), Eyes of the Wisent, Hoofprints of the Stag, Shadows of the Past

Shadows of the Past could work really well in this deck for an infinite scry into your other win cons

This deck is a decent base, however it is a little too focused on sacrifice triggers, and not enough on sacrifice value. Your commander and a few cards in the deck will be enough sac outlets, what you really need is fodder and value.
For lands go to manabasecrafter.com they will show you all possible mana fixings. Don't run any nonbasics that arn't highly effective, such as Pirahna Marsh.
I recently made a Yahenni deck of my own. Yahenni, Former Aristocrat. I run a low curve based on getting cheap creatures out and use sac to generate card draw/mana.
Boardwipes are your friend. When you blow up the board and leave a 50/50 commander behind, someone tends to die. Look for things like Plaguewind, Crux of Fate, Decree of Pain, etc.
Cards to cut:
Spellbook (Waste of a Card Slot), Renegade's Getaway (Low effect), Baneful Omen (Too expensive), Altar of Dementia (Mill does nothing), Shadows of the Past (Low impact), Price of Knowledge (Too expensive)

Fear but yea its intimidate but specifics black rather then using the creatures color.
cards like Oversold Cemetery, Shadows of the Past, Killing Wave and Victim of Night may be worth looking at, as are cards like Mephidross Vampire, Vampire Hexmage, Bloodline Keeper Flip and maybe even things like Smallpox, Decree of Pain, Do or Die, Boompile, Worldslayer, and Season of the Witch and Stripmine/Wasteland.
