Also I would cut Chittering Rats for something like Arterial Flow , Cackling Fiend , or even Caligo Skin-Witch . Heck, even Cunning Lethemancer is better - I would rather affect all opponents than just one, and putting a card back on top is just not satisfying for me. Your call though!

Altoman, your suggestions are valid and I appreciate them, but I believe you're not seeing a couple aspects of the deck I would like to discuss with you.
First this is not intended to be a Turbo/all in version but rather a more resilient/slow version than typical RB strategies. Hence the lack of Dragon Breath, Stinkweed could join the list though, since it's still a nice recurrable blocker with enough power to fuel your gy all by himself (actually with a little help from symmetrical discard).
Putrid imp doesn't seem powerful nor resilient and depending on threshold is tricky. I'd rather play Vampire Hounds if I wanted something like that.
Predatory nightstalker is mainly there as an edict effect on a body, which can counter exhume's downside by himself. But I do believe 4 might be too many, and I probably can cut at least two of them. I consider him to be something like Phyrexian Rager or Chittering Rats , this is to say, a valuable and recurrable effect which happens to have a body which can block or even get some damage through, rather than focusing on his stats.
And finally, of the 14 big guys I'm playing many of them have cycling which is relevant to get them to the gy and get your reanimation spells to your hand. Notice there isn't another way to draw cards on the deck like Night's Whisper . The reason is taking full advantage/value of the cycling package, including Horror of the Broken Lands . So you cycle, get another card, reanimate the guy you cycled and pump HOTBL on an ideal scenario.

Chittering Rats is definitely the better card over Burglar, especially getting flickered.

You said you needed to cut some cards, so here are my suggestions.
- Chittering Rats ; I get that you can flicker it, but that effect doesn't do enough to keep it.
- Royal Assassin ; I feel as if a creatures threat goes beyond its ability to turn sideways.
- Palace Jailer ; Sure you're removing something, but the opponent whose thing you just exiled will just attack you, get their thing back, plus get the monarch. Even if they don't someone else will because they want to draw cards.
-The last one is your choice, but I would get rid of a basic land because you have a good amount of lands and mana rocks already.

I love the commander, I've only ever seen one person use Triad of Fates.
Chittering Rats seems like a card that would be subpar. I'm also not sure how Eternal Scourge fits into the gameplan. I feel like you could maybe go down a land, but it all depends on if you feel that you will hit lands consistently. I honestly feel like there are better options to Charcoal Diamond and Marble Diamond.
Overall I love this deck, it seems really cool and that it will be fun to play. +1
