Both Basalt Monolith and Grim Monolith make infinite mana with her. I think Zirda’s underrated because of all the chaos with companion mechanics, plus some people don’t seem to understand that you can run the companions as your commander or in your 99 WITHOUT MEETING THE COMPAINION QUALIFICATIONS. GASP!

Basalt Monolith, Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy for infinite mana. Also Kinnan on his own boosts any mana dorks and rocks you decide to run, as well as providing a mana sink to dig through your deck for your creatures.
Even with your mana generating focus, I think you could cut the land count down to at least 34-35 (after taking some of multimedia's advice for what lands to swap). That way you have more room for your value generating cards and maybe some more counterspells.

Thanks for all the help MagicMarc. I have adjusted the deck to the way it is now. I am curious and open to more input. Thanks. I went for a mana ramp/destroy aspect. Master Transmuter+Spine of Ish Sah+Meteor Golem to return and play it over and over. Then an infinite mana loop with Basalt Monolith+Forsaken Monument.

While it's not cEDH until I get the proxies set up for cEDH-specific play, I've been brewing Rocky and Bullwinkle with Zirda as companion and Jegantha, the Wellspring as the commander. It's an infinite mana based combo deck, although I still need to work on things to use Zirda mana on.

I used to run Xiahou dun, upgraded to Sidisi. Respect for sticking with the Dun.
Your land count is a little high, especially for your CMC. I run 37 lands with a 3.3ish CMC. Your cmc is much lower with slightly less ramp. You should cut 2-3 lands for more ramp IMO.
Infernal Darkness - Like contamination but it doesnt shut off coffersn or requires continuous sacrifice. Can be used as redundancy to contamination and counterbait against blue.
Replace Cabal stronghold with Volrath's Stronghold - Cabal takes too long to get online, stronghold helps you bypass commander tax or reuse a utility creature. Can even potentially save a creature from grave hate worst comes to worst.
Replace Memorial to the folly with Deserted Temple/Blast Zone - Untapping cabal coffers or having a wipe that can interact with artifacts and enchantments is key. I know you have 2 cards or so that can interact with enchantments, but a a land that doesnt take up a slot and is tutorable through expedition map is definitely worth considering.
Replace Liliana for ramp or Imp's Mischief - Lili doesn't do much on her own. Ramp will help ensure you being able to keep up with green and further your game plan. Imp's mischief counters counterspells, redirects targetted removal/draw/extra turns. Very powerful utility for 2 mana, and unexpected in black. If you like off color cards, do note Withering Boon.
Syphon Mind - Each opponent discard 1, draw 3. Pretty good and at with no lifeloss.
Deliver Unto Evil - Not an entirely serious suggestion, but is one of the few ways to get nonblack cards back from your grave.
Have you considered adding Basalt Monolith + Rings of Brighthearth + Sensei's Divining Top? Each piece is good on it's own. Monolith for ramp, rings for commander synergy (adding fetches would help, as well to be good with top) among a few others, top for general utility and digging deeper. Adding all three gives you infinite colorless mana and draws your deck.
What is your meta like - Competitive, commanders/colors played? I might recommend Boseju given all of your sorcerries and instants.
You might want to add a nev disk for good measure in case shit hits the fan. Be sure to lmk what you think of each suggestion. Mono black shenanigans are always fun. +1

Hey Fork, I really like your list, I have almost the same! my playgroup is not allowing infinite combo so I need to swap the Basalt Monolith and Pemmin's Aura and Freed from the Real what would you replace them with? I would like to know
