Caerwyn, I would rather use Commander's Sphere over any of the Ravnican signets, because it does not require mana to fuel its ability, and I can sacrifice it when to draw a card when I no longer require the mana.

AstroAA, I need to ensure that I have swamps to synergize with Castle Locthwain and plains to synergize with Emeria, The Sky Ruin, so how many of each of those lands do you recommend?

Try Witch's Cottage or Castle Locthwain to upgrade your mana base!

I'm also rather fond of Hive of the Eye Tyrant, although it's not the best card, it's fun to have.

Unlife on Elas / Lurrus

This is great, I'm glad I'm not the only one who had a similar idea. Personally I do prefer Ayil over Elas for the commander, but thats mostly because I like holding a threat over an opponent when I pass my turn. Castle Ardenvale and Castle Locthwain are both great mana sinks when you're flooded, and Damn can function as either targeted removal or a board wipe.

Shameless self-promotion below.

I play a more aristocrats type of build, but can suggest a few vampires to look into. Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord is PHENOMENAL, specially with Bloodghast & Silversmote Ghoul. All work incredibly well with Cordial Vampire, he acts like a lord buffing the team whenever any creature dies. Knight of the Ebon Legion is a very nasty 1 drop that doubles as a removal spell later in the game. Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose I nice as well. Depending on your budget, I’d also suggest at least 2 Cavern of Souls, some fetches like Verdant Catacombs, Marsh Flats, Prismatic Vista or Polluted Delta to thin out your deck, Castle Locthwain for some card draw. Hope some of that helps.

CoarselyRefined on Sheoldred's Dream Drainer

Graveborn Muse is preferable to a few creatures you have but requires more of a zombie subtheme to really go off.

Undead Augur works with the above as does Maskwood Nexus to really push the Zomboids.

Castle Locthwain is draw on a land.

Phyrexian Arena and Underworld Connections are enchantment support for draw.

Necropotence is also something worth acquiring.

Invoke Despair is a really powerful card for this iteration of Sheoldred.

Bushmeat Poacher is a nifty little common if you're limited on funds and some of the above are out of your range but requires creatures to run.

I see you have Sanguine Bond (and Vito too) but you don't have an Exquisite Blood by which to loop the drain.

Increasing Ambition is a great card if you have the Manas to dump into it but if you want to run a tutor or two and you want to increase the competitiveness of this deck then you need to run cheaper tutors.

I'll check back when I have a little more time.

multimedia, you actually have a very good point, and Caves of Koilos was just reprinted, so its price should be low, although, if WotC ever prints enemy-colored versions of the "battle lands" (i.e., Canopy Vista, Cinder Glade, and so forth), I will unquestionably put the black/white land in this deck.

FartSeize, I need swamps to synergize with Castle Locthwain and plains to synergize with Emeria, The Sky Ruin.

Delphen7 I feel like Castle Locthwain is a good addition, but Barren Moor feels just a tad too slow for my tastes. I'll add the latter to the maybeboard for now and run a few castles to see how it pans out. Thank you!!

I personally like Castle Locthwain and Barren Moor in my mono black list, though it plays a more controlly game than yours.
