Creature — Zombie Horror
When Geralf's Mindcrusher enters the battlefield, target player puts the top five cards of his or her library into his or her graveyard.
Undying (When this creature dies, if it had no +1/+1 counters on it, return it to the battlefield under its owner's control with a +1/+1 counter on it.)
Geralf's Mindcrusher Discussion

I like this deck a lot. Some things that could work well in this are: Geralf's Mindcrusher , Raiders' Wake , Mindcrank and Duskmantle Guildmage . Duskmantle Guildmage and Mindcrank can be a devastating combo in decks like this.

Strangelove, Thanks for the compliment! I'll be sure to check your deck out too! I ran Flayer of the Hatebound when I was testing the deck out to see if I wanted to put any money into it. I like how it performs, but the mana cost is pretty steep. It also only counts if the creatures come from my graveyard, whereas Marchesa, the Black Rose usually takes creatures from my opponents' graveyards. Similar deal with Geralf's Mindcrusher . Really cool card, but the cost is a little too steep for the effect. Think I might need to add that one to my The Scarab God deck though, so thanks for the recommendation.
Brine Shaman is pretty cool, but I dislike the fact that I have to tap it to sac a creature. I try to keep my sac outlets repeatable, in case I need to evacuate my field for whatever reason.
Molten Primordial was alright when I first played the deck, but the cost wasn't worth the effect. More often than not, only one or two players have creatures worth stealing. Tried Mob Rule and wasn't a fan of the performance it gave. Maybe I was using it wrong.
Abyssal Gatekeeper , Fleshbag Marauder & Co. are great for keeping opponents' fields empty, but that isn't necessarily what I want. I steal my opponent's Sun Titan (or whatever) using Portent of Betrayal (or another stealing card), swing at the opponent with the highest life total to trigger Marchesa, the Black Rose 's Dethrone ability, sac Sun Titan to the Phyrexian Altar , Ashnod's Altar , etc., and then the Sun Titan is mine for keeps! I do make thorough use of the Abyssal Gatekeeper , Fleshbag Marauder , etc. in my Meren of Clan Nel Toth deck, and they're absolutely great in that one! Just not too sure if they fit the theme here.
Graft seems like a neat idea, but I'm not sure if it'd fit in with the rest of the deck too well. Cytoplast Manipulator would be the only Graft card I might consider. It seems pretty fragile, to be honest.
Thanks so much for all of the suggestions! I'll be sure to check out your deck and see if I can make any recommendations as well.

Here's a version I made for under $30: Black Rose [Budget]
It's a got a huge pool in the maybeboard, check it out.
No one mentioned Flayer of the Hatebound . Auto-include, imo. With a sac engine, it does at least 9 damage at the end of each turn (36+ damage by your next upkeep)!
Geralf's Mindcrusher similarly mills 10-40.
Brine Shaman is cool.
Graft: I feel like Graft + Sac Engine + Marchesa is very strong. The only way your opponents can clear this combo is to waste a ton of removal (3+ to remove Marchesa), or wait for your Graft trigger (if you overextend your combo). Vigean Graftmage protects Marchesa immediately on turn 4. They're also good fodder, like anything with Undying, to feed things like Altar of Dementia once each turn.

Thanks for checking out my Grim-Grin deck.
Serum Visions looks like a pretty weak card for Commander. Basically you are paying 1 to scry 2 since the draw just replaces the serum visions you cast. Ambition's Cost, Morbid Curiosity, Promise of Power, or Ancient Craving are better for one off card draw.
Hope some of these suggestions are useful. Good Luck!

Geralf's Mindcrusher is a decent miller and undyer too. I swear I won't think of another card in the next 5 minutes...

I really like the flash into Body Snatcher, why don't you go for eldrazi in this case? I think Geralf's Mindcrusher is weak in this deck since it's not a mill deck. Wurmcoil Engine is another good one. Consider Snapcaster Mage for flashback, or effects that'll let you have more effective Flashes Eternal Witness for example...

Pilfered Plans for draws, Propaganda for much-needed protection, Bonehoard is an OHK, Geralf's Mindcrusher is a big thing, Memory Erosion is some more milling, Nemesis of Reason is also gigantic and terrifying, Profane Memento makes you that extra bit harder to kill, Riddlekeeper is a decent deterrent for attackers, and Sphinx's Tutelage, once again, mills things.
From one Dimir agent to another: stay millin' and stay chillin'.
