Based on the profile name, description, and seeming inaccuracy of the price stated, I'm guessing this is an AI-based account. Still, I do like budget black decks like this. On the off chance that a human reads this, I'll offer some advice from my experience. First, there's no real reason to be running Gravecrawler here with no other zombies. Something like Dread Wanderer, Bloodsoaked Champion, or Cult Conscript could serve a similar role for much cheaper. On the draw side, Necropotence could be Phyrexian Arena or Midnight Oil, but I really like Blood Scrivener and Asylum Visitor for refilling from empty. For removal, cards like Sinister Concoction and Bone Shards can take advantage of creatures that return from the grave while Bone Picker offers an evasive threat and answer for cheap. For finishers, I like Mogis's Marauder or Foul-Tongue Shriek for a lot of matchups and Gray Merchant of Asphodel for others.

Thran Vigil I was hoping to make a deck loosely based around this card.

kirbysan Cult Conscript is probably the second best of the self-reanimators, but I don't think it beats out Reassembling Skeleton. I don't anticipate 1 mana on first play being as much of an issue as potentially not being able to bring it back at all.
Elas il-Kor, Sadistic Pilgrim is probably not as good of a commander as I initially thought. She doesn't add anything to the engine except an on-hand drain effect which we don't have an issue finding if we can draw enough cards. It's not as much of an issue of playing her early vs her just not doing enough. I'll definitely find a place for her in the 99 as another drainer.
I'm pretty interested in Weatherlight Compleated actually. It does take a while to get online, but 2 generic mana is barely an investment for such a powerhouse down the line. It could be better than Dark Prophecy since is rough. Compared to prophecy, weatherlight doesn't drain life and becomes a creature later which is invaluable.
Sillyprawn Teysa is already our capstone play, so having a card that already relies on her being out is pretty difficult. He's not that useful when she's not out, so I'm hesitant to include him here.
clircrazy Manifesting a non-creature isn't a bad thing. Demonic tutor isn't providing value in your library, and it could've been any card. It feels bad in retrospect, but understand that's result-oriented thinking. Just the fact that Sultai Emissary provides non-token creatures when it dies is value enough. The fact that you can flip the manifests if they're creatures is added value. In my experience emissary has only ever been an amazing addition, but if you really don't like it you can cut it for a card you find more fun.
