Oops, did not realize Tormentor counted as Black/Blue. The more I know I guess.
Voldaren Pariah is great, especially in edh. I see no reason not to play her. She does work a lot better with more sac enablers though.
Heir is just what popped in my head when thinking of vampires that enable discard. I'm not familiar with a lot of vampires. Some other ones that might work:

I was running Gnaw to the Bone over Moment's Peace, but The more I playtest against the meta, I've realized that the card that the deck wants is actually Moment's Peace. I was looking at the modern variant of dredge, and saw that they ran Gnaw to the Bone over Moment's Peace. This is because Modern Dredge runs differently. I Delve, they don't. So it's hard to keep the creature count in grave so high. I knew about the card, I just thought something better existed.
I mentioned that Wild Mongrel was bad for this deck in the description, and Vampire Hounds is worse. Running a card that nets me card disadvantage is bad, even if I'm playing slightly above curve. Those two are probably the best Madness Enablers in the format. I don't play Madness, so they're not good here.
Fa'adiyah Seer. Holy Crap. I did not know this thing existed. Yes. I realized that you almost never draw the card. When possible, you always dredge. You always get the card, never discard, and you now have a card to feed back to grave. When impossible, it helps dig for something to dredge with. And if you see it in grave, you pick it back up. Yes.
Last Rites does seem ridiculous. Seems really good against Black, Teachings, Blue decks that aren't Delver-based aggro, and maybe even Blitz. Gonna find room for it in the side somewhere.

Usually, you need some kind of splash to make TE decks work. Mono black just does not offer enough explosiveness recursion, or anything really.

I'm looking for any advice/feedback yall can give me for my tortured existence deck
I'm pretty satisfied with it where it is right now. though I'm thinking of dropping 2x Vampire Hounds and 1x Wild Mongrel for 1xKrosan Tusker and 2x Twisted Abomination in favor of mana efficiency. most games I don't need more than 1 mongrel out, and hardly ever find spare mana to cast a hound. also i think having more beaters available will help against long grindy match ups where we're both sitting at bucket loads of health.
Mainly I'm looking for some sideboard advice I'm somewhat new to pauper and don't really know what cards i should throw in for what match ups just yet. Thanks!

why Vampire Hounds? You need to discard a creature card. You will love Crawling Sensation! It fits gitrog perfectly. Every deck needs Sol Ring and Command Tower! Cultivate and Kodama's Reach can work well too! Best of luck using Gitrog who I love the design+concept of!

Ive been testing this myself. In my opinion, it needs more discard outlets. I moved the 4 Brain Gorgers to the sideboard (because giving the opponent an easy counter feels bad against any kind of aggro or creature-heavy deck - sideboard it in against things like mill and delver) and mainboarded 4 Vampire Hounds to give a few more ways to activate Madness. This bumped up the effective curve a bit, so I also cut a Call to the Netherworld for another Swamp.
Just my thoughts. How has it been playing for you?
