Reveal the top card of your library and put that card into your hand. You lose life equal to its converted mana cost. You may repeat this process any number of times.
Azoth2099 on Sen Triplets: the Hits Vol. 3

Oi! Sen Triplets is so busted lol, great choice.
Consider more Tutors if you're looking to keep up with high-power pods more effectively, unfortunately there's really no way around it. Recruiter of the Guard could also pull a lot of weight here, considering all of the applicable pieces like Walking Ballista & Grand Abolisher.
Stuff like Paradox Haze, Mnemonic Betrayal, Praetor's Grasp, Mindslaver & Word of Command also offer value and pseudo-redundancy to this Commander, but they might be getting a little too cute with synergy too.
Card advantage pieces like Ad Nauseam, Dark Confidant, Dark Tutelage, Scroll Rack & of course Necropotence get around card draw Stax pieces like Notion Thief & Narset, Parter of Veils. You may also want to consider those two in this list! Lavinia, Azorius Renegade, Linvala, Keeper of Silence & Chalice of the Void will ruin a lot of game plans as well. If you were running Reanimator I'd also recommend Void Winnower, but this may not be the Commander for all of that...Definitely consider Silence & Angel's Grace, though! Perhaps some Rule of Law effects like Archon of Emeria as well, but it seems like you're trying to go fairly fast here so maybe not lol.
I know they're "boring", but cards like Brainstorm, Ponder, Careful Study, Tolarian Winds & Dark Ritual are just...really, really good haha.
Rhystic Study & Sensei's Divining Top are obviously absolute bangers. Same with Sea Gate, Reborn Flip & Agadeem, the Undercrypt Flip, can't recommend them enough.
Lastly, a piece that I don't see often but is definitely worth it in high-power pods: Deep Gnome Terramancer. This lil dude Ramps you so much you'll think you're playing a deck, it's actually absurd.

Ad Nauseam would be a good one
Paradox Haze will give you 4 draws when paired with Kami of the Crescent Moon
Fate Unraveler and Font of Mythos let’s you benefit from giving other players additional upkeeps
Rhox Faithmender groups well with Children of Korlis and Ad Nauseam
Crawlspace would be good to slow down incoming attacks on top of Propaganda and Ghostly Prison
Using Sanguine Bond or Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose you could double up damage, paired with Rhox Faithmender and Children of Korlis that could be game.
Just some suggestions! Started building mine today and figured I’d check out what other people were building with Queza.

Not sure it's a realistic add, but Chains of Mephistopheles is pretty hilarious with Oppression out, but if I was only going to run one I think I'd run Chains, it's very good at shrinking people's hands, and it's easier to recover from Oppression than Chains. Black effects that put a card directly into hand dodge this conveniently.
With Platinum Emperion out it'd be sweet to resolve an Ad Nauseam, it's not a 'pay life' effect so it works without life being lost, unlike Peer Into the Abyss this would let you 'draw' as many cards as you want and stop at any time. Obviously terrible if you don't have something like Emperion out, but it's an idea if you want some really crazy games.
It's a total pile of jank usually, but since you only run 1 non-Swamp, have you thought about throwing in Cabal Stronghold, as a 2nd Coffers?
I was hoping there was some reasonable way I could suggest Contamination, but other than as a one turn cycle mana denial effect it didn't seem to work, but I remembered Infernal Darkness also exists! Hopefully you can wait until you have a big mana effect out before casting it, but your deck seems very able to generate large volumes of mana needed to support Cumulative Upkeep for awhile, and most non-Black decks won't be doing very much with only B mana from lands.
Not sure how many I missed Profet93, but the Exquisite Blood combos seem to be a big thing in here. Obviously there is also creature damage, but there might not be enough support to pull that off. This seems like a deck that would get great mileage out of Exsanguinate and Torment of Hailfire, but with this many tutors and that much mana as is he should be able to assemble his combo quickly enough to be a valid deck. The Commander seems to be one of the oldest legal Mono-Black options, with the others in it's set being notoriously bad cards, Baron Sengir is probably the most playable of the Black Legends other than Ihsan. I always liked his Lord Soth vibe, especially since there was a couple books featuring Lord Soth in Ravenloft, where he got tangled up in his own demi-plane by crossing the Big Bad Vampire, Strahd.

drader Hey man! So here are my suggestions:
Number one, I think you need way more mana dorks. Arbor Elf, Llanowar Elves, Fyndhorn Elves, Elvish Mystic,Elves of Deep Shadow & Deathrite Shaman are all great options. Other cards like Farseek, Nature's Lore, Three Visits, Dark Ritual & Culling the Weak are also always great to have access to.
It looks like you need a bit more card draw as well, I'd recommend Necropotence, Dark Confidant, Dark Tutelage, Ad Nauseam, Toski, Bearer of Secrets & Scroll Rack.
I know they can get expensive, but a few Tutors are essential for a smooth game plan. A few cheaper options are Diabolic Tutor, Profane Tutor, Time of Need, Beseech the Queen & Shared Summons. Diabolic Intent & Worldly Tutor are also relatively cheap due to recent print runs.
Metallic Mimic could also work wonders here, allowing your Snake tokens to host more -1/-1 counters, helping the deck power itself. Young Wolf accomplishes something similar.
Let me know how you feel about these recommendations!

Profet93 Thank you for the upvote and the suggestions! Both Karn, the Great Creator and Liliana, Dreadhorde General were actually part of this deck at one point, but they felt bad sometimes with Ad Nauseam. Your points are very valid though, and I'll definitely reconsider these cards!

I see two regenerate cards but they don't work too good with what you are trying to do. I'd consider Undying Evil and Feign Death instead.
For Rakdos blink stuff the only suitable card for your strategy that comes to mind is Golden Argosy but it will blink your commander before combat damage it dealt, meaning he won't proc of your stuff dying while attacking. Nim Deathmantle could work too I suppose but it is more mana intensive.
BTW I'm curious why does the list run Ad Nauseam and Doomsday?

running a scryfall search on equipment in your colours with decending CMC, you get the following:
Looking at it this way will give you the most reach in what instants/sorceries you can run. From this, cards which you can get good value on are Embercleave (as mentioend above) and Ramosian Greatsword. Kaldra Compleat and Drach'Nyen don't inherently have a cost reducer built in, but offer good value at higher CMC.
All of the above equipment put you in the range of extra turn spells like Time Warp, with Kaldra even enabling the casting of Nexus of Fate for free. Running a suite of extra turn spells in conjunction with extra combat spells like Relentless Assault, Seize the Day etc. allow you to beat face with your commander (who should be rather high damage) while getting extra swings for free. Ad Nauseam is an interesting card to try, but give that you'll have quite a high CMC deck, the risk to reward profile may not be worth it. That being said, you could build a generally low CMC list with a few high cost equipment and design the whole deck to be a free cast of Ad Naus and then storm out if you wanted something different.
If you are going to go down the high CMC route however, cards like Bludgeon Brawl let you run a bunch of expensive mana rocks like Gilded Lotus and Chromatic Orrery so you hcan go harder on ramp but then can equip your rocks to get good triggers from your commander.
Just some thoughts, hope it helps.

DemonDragonJ: Yeah I'm guessing it's because it makes most artifacts tokens die, namely Incubators.
I'm disproportionally dissapointed that they didn't use the phyrexian transformation cards for more humor, e.g. my white-red Devil idea; most of them don't change that much in personality. The could have instead e.g. had Chrome Host Hulk Flip been more like Voracious Reader Flip
So uh Phyrexian Archivist is just a reprint with an added creature type, could have done some kind of twist.
Ephara, Ever-Sheltering: calling it now, the THB Demigods will be the new cycle of mono-colored Gods.
Polukranos Reborn Flip: one of the more fun usages of the psi-symbol omen in the art
Botanical Brawler: kinda weird flavor that this works well with Incubate.
Wrenn's Resolve: yesss, I'm happy that Reckless Impulse got a functional reprint already
Dance with Calamity: kinda red Ad Nauseam?
