Most of your creatures seem sub-par, Hired Poisoner and Will-o'-the-Wisp in particular.

You are right, that's a difficult question. I have taken a closer look to this "combo". My idea was that the becoming of a copy does not trigger the entering the battlefield-ability. Neither does the leaving-the-battlefield trigger, if the card does get a copy of another card.

In the rules book, there is quoted:

201.4. Text that refers to the object it’s on by name means just that particular object and not any other objects with that name, regardless of any name changes caused by game effects.

Therefore the trigger that Lazav gains from Chainer would be "When {this object} leaves the battlefield, exile all Nightmares". So If Lazav leaves the battlefield while he is a copy Chainer, Dementia Master, then the triggered ability would definitely trigger. In this case, all created nightmares get exiled.

However, if Lazav, the Multifarious become a different copy, for example of Will-o'-the-Wisp, then he does not have the ability when leaving the battlefield. And last, those reanimated creatures don't get any additional abilities except for becoming black and the creature type nightmare, the "getting exiled"-text is on Chainer.

This is my opinion to this effect, but I'm not clutching on this combo too much and if someone knows it better I'll definitely take a change.

Will-o'-the-Wisp would be a good way to replace Pack Rat, only downside being that Tramplers will have a much easier time reaching you.

thom-le while I agree that Will-o'-the-Wisp over Mortivore is effective for it's cheaper cost, I am mainly concerned with potentially substituting the activated abilities that cost mana with those of which that cost life instead so that I dont have to rely on holding up mana to do so. Mischievous Poltergeist effectively enables this for me and has more graveyard value in my opinion. Otherwise, I have favored Mortivore over Will-o'-the-Wisp for value on the battlefield so far in playtesting, because he can get rather massive and pose a threat on the battlefield if I have to.

Instead of Mischievous Poltergeist take a look at Will-o'-the-Wisp. Seems a bit cheaper..

Yeah for this case I've put in Thassa, God of the Sea (indestructible), Thalakos Scout (return to hand) or Will-o'-the-Wisp (regenerate). Draining Whelk is a very good card, but Lazav claims so many mana for himself that a counter for 6 CMC is very unlikely to get a place.

I like the list. Have you considered cutting the curious obsession and swapping in Thoughtseize and a negate/alliance to net three sideboard slots?

Black also has some notable spirits to look at- Bloodghast, Nether Traitor and Demigod of Revenge from the graveyard, Dimir Infiltrator for transmute, and Will-o'-the-Wisp as a resilient chump blocker. I've tried to get a mardu Shared Animosity spirits list working with Eidolon of the Great Revel, but it needs a particular meta to run smoothly. This has a lot more resillience.

Also: the swamp girl might be Will-o'-the-Wisp.

I just realzed that the varchild artwork is a female.
