Nah, seems perfect as is! Keep it just like that.

...Kidding, kidding. I think Storrev, Devkarin Lich, Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger, and Ayara, First of Locthwain seem like safe cuts. Storrev's a little slow, Vorinclex is cool but I'm sure there's mana-doublers that fit better and you've got no shortage of big beatsticks in Elves, and Ayara's a bit mana-intensive for an effect that's not super-strong and only gonna proc off maybe half your deck.

Ayara, First of Locthwain and Zulaport Cutthroat literally counter Carnival of Souls negative effects and it you run Bontu's Monument things get even better. You don’t drop it turn one, just when your ready to make your move or have stabilized.

Cloudstone Curio works amazingly here. Ive ran it since my original build and never have questioned its usefulness. You should reconsider and do some testing.

Did you consider Ayara, First of Locthwain ? Since you're playing monoblack, I feel like she would fit nicely even if just as a 1-off to supplement the Bastion of Remembrance as well as being another sac outlet for drawing cards. Would also improve the triggers from Sedgemoor Witch .

ChrisHansonBiomancin thanks for the help! I think maybe you’re right about having too many sac outlets and not enough stuff to sac. With that said, do you have any ideas as to something in black the consistently creates tokens? Ideally if there was something that created black tokens this gives me more fodder for Ayara, First of Locthwain and Bastion of Remembrance . When reading your comment I initially thought of Scute Swarm but I’m not sure there’s enough payoff with it to make it make sense.

Your deck looks like it has some untapped potential with Onyx as your brawl commander for not making use of the adventure creatures in black. 3 of the adventure creatures that seem like they would be a good fit would be Foulmire Knight , Order of Midnight , and Murderous Rider .

Foulmire Knight - Solid defender with its death touch and will trigger Onyx when used for the draw. It also serves as a decent recursion target to be brought back to hand for the previously stated reasons.

Order of Midnight - More useful version of Raise Dead as you can use it as an early flier if you want to be aggressive, or it can just be used as a spell to bring a target back from your grave.

Murderous Rider - Solid removal spell and the lifelink body you can play afterwards can be relevant.

Sedgemoor Witch will be strong for taking advantage of our spell heavy you are. The tokens will give some good fodder for blocking and sustaining to get to your end game, or even swinging wide if you manage to generate enough.

Ayara, First of Locthwain would be a decent add to combo with the witch as it would give you life drain effects for the tokens and a sac out let for some extra draw power.

Some spell ideas to help the deck:

Blood on the Snow is a powerful sweeper of creatures or planeswalkers and will give you another reanimation effect if you switch to snow swamps (these will still count as regular swamps for other cards).

Feed the Serpent is a decent instant speed removal option that exiles a threat. Slightly better then using the Necrotic Fumes you are currently using.

Hope these help.

Ayara, First of Locthwain only triggers on black creatures. Impact Tremors might be what you're looking for if you're trying to win instantly with Rally the Horde

You should be able to manage Ayara, First of Locthwain here despite its awkward mana cost. Seems like it offers everything you need to tie the life gain & sac strategies together while providing card advantage.

Also there are a lot of interesting options for Learn cards to replace Pest Summoning in the mainboard so you can get more value & magecraft triggers. Cram Session , Eyetwitch , Poet's Quill , Overgrown Arch , Hunt for Specimens , Field Trip , and Gnarled Professor would all fit in with this strat.
