Let me know what you think of each suggestion...
You really need more token production such as...
Grave Titan - ETB and attack token production
Liliana, Dreadhorde General > Lili Ves - Static ability/draw, token production, removal and wincon
More Artifact ramp would help such as....
Additional Draw would really help like....
Syphon Mind - Cheap $, each opponent discard 1, you draw 3. Good value all around
Necropotence - When you need cards, you get cards.
Phyrexian Arena - Simple and easy
Read the Bones - Least impactful but the scry is really clutch
Yawgmoth's Will - Best card black can buy. Don't sleep on this
Dismember - I've found it useful, I like the ability to kill most creatures with 1 mana
The Meathook Massacre - While unsure if this is the best fit, it seems to go well with your tokens. Plus, the lifegain helps offset some of black's lifeloss cards
Damnation - When things need to die
I have several ideas of cuts if you would like to hear them. Looking forward to your response

Necromaster Dragon is a fun one.
Reef Worm is a good replayable idea.
There are a few Planeswalkers who create tokens, also. Probably my personal favorite to do so with is Ashiok, Nightmare Muse because that token is absolutely devastating, especially if you manage vigilance on it somehow.
There are 635 cards listed on Gatherer within and that make creature tokens. Have fun!

Thanks for the suggestions DawnsRayofLight.
Archon of Cruelty is a cool card for sure. As I mentioned in one of my comments on Rolska's Isshin Twin Triggers deck, I avoid playing 6+ cmc cards, or only play 1-2 in decks that lack green. I don't mind playing a couple 6 cmc cards, but for me personally, there's a point in games where I'd rather be able to play multiple cards per turn, rather than a splashy bomb that's vulnerable to removal if it doesn't have Haste or an ETB effect.
I had Sun Titan in my original draft, but subbed it out. I've played Grave Titan and Archon of Cruelty in my Araumi of the Dead Tide deck, and I generally like them, but am considering swapping one of them out in that deck if I don't take it apart first lol.
On a similar note, I'm already eyeing Etali as a potential swap out. Every time I play it, it either gets removed immediately or stolen, since my playgroup plays a lot of single target removal.
Aurelia, the Warleader is cool, but without a Vigilance anthem, your board won't get the benefit of the 3rd combat. Also she's expensive money-wise, and I don't currently own a copy. I cut the extra combat stuff from my deck in favor of a bit more draw and removal.
As for Lucille and Chief Jim Hopper, they're both good, but I'm going to wait for their MtG reskin versions to be printed in the next 6 months or so. I'm a bit snobby and don't want Walking Dead or Stranger Things in my decks.

Aurelia, the Warleader: 3 combat phases = lol
Lucille: seems strong
Chief Jim Hopper: help for draw
Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder: can be make some fun board states with Isshin
there are tons of create tokens on attack and they can increase your field presence.
This is my isshin list Obi-Wan Can Blow Me, let me know what you think!

Isshin is pretty cool for sure. Commander Replay just dropped a neat little short for a tokens build with him using all of the on attack triggers with cards like Grave Titan. The black Myojin could be a janky boardwipe tribal commander.

These are the things I don't think are very strong in the deck at the moment.
Death Denied just takes them to your hand and most of the ones you want are big, it would probably be better if it put them on top of your library. The same could be said for Darigaaz's Charm, Phyrexian Reclamation, Necromantic Thirst, and Disentomb.
I'm not sure Hoarding Dragon and Lathliss, Dragon Queen is that good; are these really worth it? This doesn't seem like a dragon focus deck really, even though you do have a few dragons. I think the energy is better spent focusing on another theme like big creatures and sacrificing, ramping, or jund control.
I don't like Shreds of Sanity because there aren't that many instants or sorceries in the deck to begin with and I feel that the deck would be stronger if it focused on it's creatures anyway.

Cheap permenants that you can lay down with Vaevectis or other similar cards that then also give you mana: Wood Elves, Farhaven Elf, and Solemn Simulacrum and Yavimaya Elder also lets you draw so you can sac him with Asmadi for a profit. For similar "when permanent enters the battlefield" effect maybe Reclamation Sage and Acidic Slime.
Chaos Warp is a staple of jund and you could use it if someone tries to get rid of Asmadi. Deathsprout and Decimate are really good jund removal cards as well. Primal Surge is a lot of mana but a good alternative win condition.
Also assuming that Asmaldi gets to stay on the field then here are some good cards that let you make sure whatever you get with him is good: Augur of Autumn, Haunted Crossroads, Hua Tuo, Honored Physician, Varragoth, Bloodsky Sire, Brutalizer Exarch, Courser of Kruphix, Vizier of the Menagerie, Crystal Ball, and Call of the Wild. On the other hand, here are some cards to make sure whatever your opponents get from Asmaldi isn't good: Painful Memories, Agonizing Memories.
Then here are some big creatures you could get for free with Asmaldi: Woodfall Primus, Borborygmos Enraged, Kodama of the East Tree, and Artisan of Kozilek. Lurking Predators is also useful for this feature as well as setting up what's on top of your deck.
Mortuary Mire is probably a good addition to the deck as well.
