First of all, looking at it 'on paper', I don't know how this thing works, but it works! Here are my thoughts (whether they amount to anything or not is up to you...)
First, the curve on this is absurd, especially given the mana. Would some more mana production early game be helpful? I noticed the Sarkhan, Fireblood is missing, so it seems maybe not? Still, Faeburrow Elder seems like it might be a busted mana creature for the deck.
I would still look to sub more expensive reanimation for lower CMC reanimation...since then you can activate more other abilities, cast more spells, etc with your mana. Also, more versatile reanimation might be good, considering how often cards like your Sarkhans and your 'gateways' blown up. Perhaps think of replacing things like Fearsome Awakening and Unburial Rites with things like Animate Dead (only 2cmc, can take my things too) and Obzedat's Aid (gets your planeswalkers, artifacts, and enchants back), or even Beacon of Unrest.
Since you're a graveyard-centric deck, some things to salvage your graveyard in case someone decides they need to exile all your dragons might be in order. You have continuous effects like Reito Lantern or Bow of Nylea (bonus points for being cute with Balefire Dragon), or you can do something that serves multiple purpose like Perpetual Timepiece. Cauldron does this somewhat as well. Again, not sure how much of an issue this is.
A few cards I was unimpressed with: Verix Bladewing, Praetor's Council, Sarkhan, Dragonsoul, Darksteel Ingot, Mirror Gallery, Palace Siege, Ephemerate (for this one, I would personally go back to Cloudshift, so Dragonlord Silumgar can permanently steal a creature).
Some ideas: Temur Ascendancy, Assassin's Trophy/ Beast Within/ Generous Gift/ Anguished Unmaking (some very general target removal, hit anything really stupid that's bothering you), Dragonlord Atarka, Dragonlord Ojutai (I think you were working on getting Atarka...)

Profet93 I am newly active again. I have been trying to brush off my MtG rust and get back into the game. I appreciate suggestions a lot and will be editing the deck a little more pretty soon. Sometimes I would play Possessed Portal against decks like Jace, Vryn's Prodigy Flip to prevent milling or to prevent frantic searches. Beacon of Unrest is definitely a good replacement for Arcbound Reclaimer. I will play test it for a bit and see how it goes over. Thank you for your help I appreciate it, but it might be a little while before I revisit this deck with the seriousness I did before.

Have you considered Phyrexian Delver over Zombify? I guess its the same CMC dilemma as Beacon of Unrest, but you can sac the delver (and even recur it). I usually get pretty good multiple use out of it even with the life cost. I would still consider a Stitch Together or Nim Deathmantle over Zombify. (which nim has the nasty potential of going infinite with Ashnod's Altar)

So, multimedia, I just got the madness commander deck today, and there are so many cards that I could add to the deck (such as Overseer of the Damned , Beacon of Unrest , Archfiend of Spite , and more)! Having this, I will soon be changing the deck from Rakdos' Crazy Demon Party to Chainer's Demon Summoning Possie! So, in your humble opinion, what should I cut/add?

Cut Swamp to go to 38 lands, 39 is too much
Cut swamp for Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth - Upgrade and goes with coffers and non-swamps
Cut swamp for Thespian's Stage - Copy coffers or any utility land like cradle, strip mine, etc...
How are you dealing with artifacts and enchantments? One Rest in Peace and you lose unless you make them proactively discard it which isn't always possible. Some suggestions of budget and nonbudget include....
Ill-Gotten Gains seems like it can backfire a large portion of the time. What is the purpose of it, to put creatures in yards or general recursion? If you're looking for recursion of black cards, Xiahou Dun, the One-Eyed can do the trick. General recursion can be down with Yawgmoth's Will . Artifact/Creature recursion can be done with Beacon of Unrest (not suggesting beacon, but just an idea to note).

Some cards that I run in my The Haunt of Hightower deck that may be of use:
Liliana's Specter , hits the table with the discard, flying body just a bonus. I'd use this rather than some of your more expensive single target discard spells as this is multiplayer and its hard enough to punish the table playing discard.
Tasigur's Cruelty again, hits the table and you're not likely to be paying retail on this.
Geth's Grimoire Good way to refuel as you strip peoples' hands.
Bolas's Citadel better with Haunt as the lifelink there keeps this going but this is still an obscene card.
Rankle, Master of Pranks the haste, evasion and multiple modes are all good.
Waste Not More resources for you as opponents lose theirs.
Not sure about Dismember , Hero's Downfall or Vraska's Contempt would probably be useful more often in this spot. Though I suppose if your meta plays a lot of indestructibles, then Dismember may be the answer.
