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.

Hi I am not one to comment on decks. Infact I only signed up for this website to comment on this deck. I am also not a master deck builder but I really like this deck Idea and want to help you build it. First I think you should keep Heartless Summoning and I also like your addition of Falkenrath Noble. You should also add Noxious Revival and Shimmer Myr to go of at instant speed, and for your combo I think you should add Junk Diver. Also if you are going to add white add Idyllic Tutor and maybe Athreos, God of Passage. Viscera Seer will die to Heartless Summoning so maybe Shadows of the Past. This is a weird idea but maybe Remembrance. Just some ideas but I love the deck.

I absolutely love the deck. After seeing this I am now determined to make my own variation including some of the following suggestions. Btw this is so long because its also a note to myself.
The Inkmoth Nexus and Blinkmoth Nexus won't come back because Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker says to return the creature card; they are land cards regardless of what they were on the battlefield. I recommend replacing them with Reliquary Tower and notably Winding Canyons. With all the ways of getting mana on others' turns you can use it quite effectively. Other lands you should consider include: Volrath's Stronghold, Crypt of Agadeem, Westvale Abbey Flip, High Market, Lake of the Dead, Vesuva Maze of Ith and Wasteland (instead of Tectonic Edge.)
Glistening Oil seems a little out of place. Are you using it to make your larger creatures small enough to be returned? If not then you have no reason to play it. If so then you should cut it because there are much better options. You could use Fevered Convulsions to achieve the same thing faster despite the mana investment (and you can use it on enemy creatures.) However, I recommend Sorceress Queen instead, for not only serving the same purpose but also being more versatile and being a creature with power 0 it fits very well.
I don't like Kiku, Night's Flower here because it cant answer anything immediately with summoning sickness and is far less efficient (and fast) than your already insane amount of removal. I recommend replacing it with Zulaport Cutthroat as another Blood Artist. You can also add Falkenrath Noble
At first glance AEther Vial looks really good considering all the 2 and 3 drops. but after thinking about it I realized that there is a far better option you can use: Vedalken Orrery. You may have to spend more mana but you can use it multiple times every every turn rather than once each turn rotation once you get an altar out.
Other cards you could consider are: Marionette Master, Summoner's Egg, Triskelion, Triskelavus, Mesmeric Fiend, Weaponcraft Enthusiast, Noxious Toad, Wild-Field Scarecrow, Dutiful Attendant, Workshop Assistant, Gnawing Zombie, Chimney Imp, Insidious Bookworms, Disciple of Phenax, Fume Spitter, Rotting Rats, Ravenous Rats, Corrupt Court Official, Vampiric Rites, Dark Prophecy, Contamination, Shadows of the Past, Sheoldred, Whispering One, Gate to Phyrexia, Disciple of Griselbrand, Harvester of Souls, Mindlash Sliver, Deathgreeter, Kalastria Healer, Altar of the Brood, Altar of Dementia, Black Market, Disciple of the Vault, Blasting Station, Abyssal Gatekeeper, Bitter Ordeal, Buried Alive, Palace Siege, Soot Imp, Tree of Perdition, Spine of Ish Sah, Trading Post, Solemn Simulacrum, Thrull Surgeon, Slithery Stalker, Ashen-Skin Zubera, Geth's Grimoire, Killing Wave, Necroskitter, Thorn of the Black Rose, Myr Moonvessel, and Arcane Lighthouse (just in case they have a Sigarda, Host of Herons or something.) Also if you can afford it: The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale.
