@DVLuca Su-Chi is a combo piece, for combos like Nim Deathmantle+Su-Chi+Krark-Clan Ironworks/Ashnod's Altar. I already have Lion's Eye Diamond in my deck. Soothsaying is a good suggestion, but it's abillities are overpriced and I won''t use it much. This deck is very fast. I will take out Blood Artist, though, great suggestion.

I think you can swich Su-Chi with Auriok Salvagers and Lion's Eye Diamond to combo off in different ways and have recursion of different cards. Blood Artist is off, you already have Blasting Station, Altar of the Brood and Grinding Station. Soothsaying for more manupolation can be nice and preserve resources.+1

Happy to help you out AinsleyTheGod, so here are some ideas for you:
Both of the previous commenters have some good ideas, but before you start grabbing upgrades suggested, you probably want to answer the question of how competitive you are looking to be? If you're wanting a fun home-brew in a casual meta, then there really aren't any wrong answers. Playing cards that you find fun and entertaining is all good in that case, so adjust the deck to your personal preference/flavor. On the other hand, if you are specifically looking to become more competitive against all comers, then job number one needs to be to reduce your CMC curve significantly while increasing your turn speed to get Sheoldred into play ASAP.
Considering your commander's strengths are forced sacrifice and reanimation, your best bet is to build primarily around that synergy. To that end, there are a ton of creatures lower on the mana curve that will provide an upgrade in synergy as well. I would suggest the following that you don't currently have included in your deck: Viscera Seer, Zulaport Cutthroat, Fleshbag Marauder, Merciless Executioner, Stinkweed Imp, Ophiomancer, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Su-Chi, Phyrexian Delver, Sidisi, Undead Vizier, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, Rune-Scarred Demon and Razaketh, the Foulblooded. Each has their own way in which they improve the overall synergy, with the higher CMC options providing significant benefits or board presence, which will almost always require your opponents to deal with them immediately, clearing an easier path for your commander as well.
In addition to creatures, you'll want to increase the number of cards that will fill your graveyard with select creatures, as well as increase the number of ways to reanimate them, and even sacrifice them, typically for your benefit, but also to your opponent's detriment. The following would be my initial suggestions based on those criteria: Entomb, Innocent Blood, Reanimate, Animate Dead, Exhume, Vampiric Rites, Buried Alive, Necromancy, Ashnod's Altar, Grave Pact and Dictate of Erebos. There are numerous other options to fill these criteria as well, but sticking with the lowest CMC options, these are among the best.
Also, black has great options for ramp, tutors and card draw, so accelerating the deck and finding what you need shouldn't be an issue. Among the best low CMC options for these purposes include: Dark Ritual, Bubbling Muck, Vampiric Tutor, Sensei's Divining Top, Expedition Map, Demonic Tutor, Cabal Ritual, Sign in Blood, Night's Whisper, Beseech the Queen, Phyrexian Arena, Necropotence and Diabolic Tutor.
Hopefully you find these suggestions helpful - obviously some of these options aren't necessarily budget friendly, but as you accumulate more of them, focusing on the most affordable first if necessary, the end result will be a significant improvement in consistency and performance from your deck. Best of luck with your deck brewing, and have fun with it.

Shroud isn't needed because in response to any non-Force of Will interruption you can just reactivate the ability anyways (thinking of razaketh and hangarback in particular). The cabal therapy not only removes counterspells and other "stop your combo" cards but also can force the teferi player to discard their Paradox Engine. sidisi on entering the battlefield, and if it is still on the battlefield, be used for razaketh fodder.

Phyrexian Devourer to add to your necrotic ooze combos. Protean Hulk, Phyrexian Delver and Carrion Feeder for more win-con combos. Phyrexian Altar, Su-Chi, Grave Titan and Nim Deathmantle for more win-con combos. Good looking deck.
