I haven't played 5 colors much, so maybe someone who has can offer better advice, but given how much more difficult a deck can be when it adds more colors, I feel like these would help more consistently than the dual/bounce lands, which also means more emphasis on green and colorless cards. However, that is strictly my opinion.
Lastly, here's a shenanigan:

Springjack Pasture, Spawning Bed, Urza's Factory, Mirrorpool, Gods' Eye, Gate to the Reikai, Gargoyle Castle, Cradle of the Accursed and Foundry of the Consuls are the ones that I know of that are legal in Modern. Choose which ones are useful for you.
Probably should mention, all of these add tokens. I read you OP wrong. I'll look for more.

This is awful. Why would you do this to anyone. +1 from me.
On a more constructive note, I observe you have an incomplete set of dual lands. I highly recommend finishing out the shockland and fetchland sets (budget permitting, of course). I'd also recommend Mystic Gate, Sunken Ruins, and Fetid Heath for mana fixing. They're all great. Springjack Pasture fixes mana much less, but is a mana sink and can also make instant-speed tokens for sacrificing.

Thank you for the suggestions LittleBluehero, I like the direction you want to take your Bontu with by winning with commander damage. Unfortunately that is not my goal for this deck I would rather play the more controlling version where I punish my opponent with sacrificing. I did consider Never//Return but I decided that having the instant speed removal is better since the return part creates 1 zombie which for 4 mana I have plenty of other cards that make tokens more efficiently. Lands like Springjack Pasture suffer from the same issue. I will say I am interested in some cards like Ascendant Evincar I will play around with it and see how it does.

Yahenni, Undying Partisan is not better at everything.
Sure he is a much easier sac engine than Bontu, but Bontu is much better at hitting with commander damage thanks to menace.
I'm kinda stuggling with the best way to build Bontu myself. I am currently going the zombie route simply because the token production is more prevalent for that tribe in Black. My hope is that I can clog the baord with deadites and swing in when I can for commander damage.
That being said Bontu is probably your strongest wincon and it couldn't hurt to run a few more ways to help him get the job done quicker. Things like Fireshrieker and Loxodon Warhammer are solid equipment you could run as well as buffs like Ascendant Evincar and Bad Moon. The buffs also make your tokens more useful for things other than sacrificing.
I would take out a few of your more expensive spells 5 and up. Despite a few good ways to get more mana in black its hard to do it with any consistency. You also aren't running any combos really so running a ton of tutors may not be needed. You could probably cut at least Diabolic Revelation.
Lastly Hero's Downfall is nice cuz its an instant but you might want to consider Never//Return since its aftermath gets you a token. You can also benefit from token producing lands like Springjack Pasture. Its expensive to make a token but helps in a pinch.

Overall mana cost of the deck is way too high. keep in mind that modern is usually a turn 4 win format. if you want to start playing creatures only by turn 3-4, you need alot of control in the deck.

Welcome on T/O!
After looking at your list I came up with these suggestions you should really consider:
- Baral, Chief of Compliance
- Scourge of Fleets
- Stormtide Leviathan
- Springjack Pasture
- Swiftfoot Boots
- Faerie Artisans
