As Vesuva enters the battlefield, you may choose a land in play. If you do, Vesuva enters the battlefield tapped as a copy of the chosen land.

Ditch Urza's Factory - its not something you want to do with eldrazi.
If you want to play black eldrazi you can take advantage of the fact that Heartless Summoning, is a harder to destroy modern legal version of the banned Eye of Ugin. If you go black you can have the acceleration of the eldrazi decks before the ban. I would advocate running 4x Eldrazi Temple alongside it, and some Vesuva for shits and giggles.
In general look up no banlist eldrazi and start from there.
REgarding your list i would place Platinum Angel into the sideboard as fast as i can, it can be good in certain linear matchups, when the opponent doesn't expects its, but as of now i think there are literally no decks that lack the answers for it - and you have nothing to protect it. On the other hand all those discard spells should be in the mainboard - if nothing else they will let you know what you need to sideboard against in game 2...

I'll most certainly consider it. Vesuva would also be a good addition if we're going that route. We shall see.
Thanks for the advice! :)

Vesuva unfortunately does not work with Dark Depths. Since it enters as a copy of the land, it will "enter" as Depths, and thus have 10 counters on it. Unfortunately the only two ways to cheat through the counters currently are Thespian's Stage and Vampire Hexmage. I did consider running boots as well, but like you said countermagic is also solid protection, and I generally prefer not to run both if I can avoid it. The good news about Tatyova is that her means of generating card advantage is the most difficult to remove (mass land destruction is a possibility but you don't need that kind of negativity in your life). Point being that if you play her you should be playing more lands which let you recast her easily. Thanks for the notes!

Also, for every deck that has any kind of focus on protecting itself from creatures, I can't recommend the Maze of Ith trilogy enough. This consists of Maze of Ith, accompanied by Vesuva and Thespian's Stage as copies of it. As long as you control these three, you will be impervious to almost all effective attacks. If hexproof becomes an issue, you just activate Arcane Lighthouse.

Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite and Serra Ascendant in a Vampire deck? Seems a little bit weird. Conspiracy maybe... I also recommend to find a place for Blade of the Bloodchief. Not sure about Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx - I use it in monocolored decks only (just like Vampire Nocturnus - this guy is great in mono B Vampires but he is much less effective in Mardu builds). What do you think about Maze of Ith? Or Vesuva? Seems a little bit more interesting. I also see Sorin Markov in your maybeboard. You added Eldrazi Monument so token generators are much more preferable. Sorin, Lord of Innistrad or Sorin, Solemn Visitor for example. And yes, don't forget about Anointed Procession if you want to get tons of tokens. I also recommend to think about board wipes: Wrath of God, Day of Judgment, Damnation, Languish etc. Even Obliterate. Why not? Eerie Interlude + Obliterate and a very big surprise is guaranteed :)

Most mono black decks in EDH run off the same engine: Cabal Coffers. I'd recommend more ways to find it, copy it, and reuse it, such as Vesuva or Deserted Temple. With a card advantage engine in the CZ, you always have something to do with your leftover mana, which means you'll rarely be without gas for the next turn.

Profet93 Thanks for the mana base suggestions, I think Vesuva is a good land to add in because it can help copy any of my utility lands, and worst case it becomes a swamp and buffs Korlash anyway, Thespian's Stage seems a little less good seeing as it costs 2 mana to copy a land and I would rather use that mana to get down a good equipment or a juicy Go for the Throat. Big mana isn't really a part of this deck so taking advantage of Cabal Coffers with something like Deserted Temple is kind of overkill and could even put me down a swamp which is Korlash's base. Though Imp's Mischief is a great card I have never seen and will definitely be added in. Once again thank you for the suggestions and any more are definitely appreciated.
