Visions of Brutality doesn't work that way... card says whenever creature deals damage, not when damage is dealt to it :(

So since it cam out Nahiri's Wrath was always at the back of my mind.
And i recently stumbled upon some nice cards that compliment it perfectly Ragged Veins (with flash!), Visions of Brutality & Spiteful Shadows - all of which are a lot better than Boros Reckoner or Spitemare in this role.
Of course a short search later i quickly realized that i am not the first to come up with the idea.
And quickly found out, that no one made a serious attempt to make such a deck work.
So in my humble opinion the deck should be built up something like this:
6x Nahiri's Wrath (& Kindle the Carnage )
8x Ragged Veins & Visions of Brutality
4x Faithless Looting
4x Cathartic Reunion (?)
And a lot of other high costed creatures, something like:
3x Tasigur, the Golden Fang
4x Tombstalker (?)
Horror of the Broken Lands
The problem of creatureless decks can be solved by Forbidden Orchard, and black has plenty of discard for the sideboard, to fight counterspells.
Does this idea seem viable?

I recommend a slightly more aggressive approach, focusing a little more on the madness mechanic. For that, you could add Furyblade Vampire or Ravenous Bloodseeker to enable madness and Incorrigible Youths as a payoff. Further, i suggest Insolent Neonate as a better one-dropt. To not run out of steam, you can add more Tormenting Voice and 2-3 Asylum Visitor.
Things to get rid of:
- Defiant Bloodlord -> this is not primarily a lifegain deck & the mana cost are way too high.
- Zulaport Cutthroat -> only useful with mass creatures (e.g. token strategies) or sac strategies.
- Visions of Brutality -> i don't see any synergy
- Diabolic Tutor -> make your deck consistent by playing 4 of each important card and you don't need tutors. they slow you down too much.
- Pick the Brain -> sideboard
- Blood Mist -> unsure about this one. you already get first strike from Stensia Masquerade but the cards work well together. But you want more creatures. So at least go down a copy...

Visions of Brutality too actually but I would still keep persecutions in sideboard, just against hexproof.

So, for starters, I'd definitely take out Akroma's Memorial and either sell that bad boy or put it in literally any creature-focued EDH deck that you have, because all the keywords in the world will still only make your Stuffy Doll a 1/1. I'd also take out Assault Formation, since it only affects 4 of your creatures (and even then, it's negligible gain). Also, I'd nix Crawlspace since it defeats the purpose of Nightly Hunting. Gravity Well is redundant if you draw more than 1, so I'd just keep 2 copies.
To put in: Lust for War, Contaminated Bond, Contaminated Ground, Nettling Curse, Sinister Possession, Visions of Brutality, Goblin Diplomats. I'd put in Jaddi Offshoot or any Black creature with lifelink (Gifted Aetherborn? Vampire Cutthroat?) if you're concerned about Burn. I know your deck doesn't include B, but having those Auras will help you accelerate victory (honestly, you almost could take out all of the G cards in this deck).
Hope this helps! Mention me if I can clarify or otherwise be helpful.
