At the beginning of your upkeep, target opponent may remove a card in his or her graveyard from the game. If that player doesn't, you may draw a card.

Dust Bowl is definitely a possibility. But lately I've been viewing Strip Mine and Wasteland as potential liabilities for mono-black Old School Commander trying to run Cabal Coffers. Also, my playgroup recently discussed it and we can't recall a single time recently we've played Dust Bowl/Strip Mine/Wasteland and actually used their land destruction functionality.
On first blush, I think I dismissed Gravestorm too much. Going to put it in the maybe pile for sure.
Corpse Dance is definitely a bomb, but would prefer more sacrifice effects to really maximize it. I did not feel like it was truly supported in this particular incarnation.

Was awesome seeing Spirit of the Night in the list. Epic card from an epic era.
Dust Bowl with all those basic swamps is late game utility.
Gravestorm is Phyrexian Arena #2
Corpse Dance epic EDH bomb

So I actually did an order the day before you commented and luckily for me a lot of your suggestions are in my order.
To help with draw I’ve added Gravestorm Rhystic Study Verity Circle Waste Not
To help with lands I’ve added Choked Estuary Creeping Tar Pit Jwar Isle Refuge Mistvault Bridge Salt Marsh Submerged Boneyard Sunken Hollow Swiftwater Cliffs Tainted Isle Temple of Epiphany
To help with mana rocks I’ve added Arcane Signet Corrupted Grafstone Dimir Signet Fellwar Stone Izzet Signet Thought Vessel
I’ve been really contemplating making Mirko Vosk my commander due to the lack of red but I really wanted Xander to work.

Thanks, Goblin_Guide! That means a lot :) I totally agree, Morgue Thrull has some awesome art! Definitely one of my favorites! Gravestorm is such a cool card too! Drawing an extra card or thinning a graveyard out every upkeep is so nice here - and it looks incredible while doing it :D

If you wanna do some kind of "control" I would suggest:
Sudden Spoiling - can save you, or use it diplomatically. It also combos with Massacre Wurm.
You already use Sadistic Sacrament and Life's Finale, so you could consider Nightmare Incursion,Praetor's Grasp, even Peer into the Abyss could be silly to use :D Curse of the Cabal is a bit silly, but could be fun to use in some decks.
I use Bitter Ordeal in my For the Void as a combo piece... its very derpy combo, but it works surprisingly well :D (infinite triggers of Desecrated Tomb+Tortured Existence+Phyrexian Altar).
Gravestorm - could be used aswell, but there are better cards for draw and graveyard hate, but why not more card draw in control deck?
Necropotence - depending on your budget (which it seems to be okay), this is just top tier diamond in mono-black. You dont even have any self-discard card effects (just max. hand size), so its even better. Reliquary Tower usually fixes that problem, so you can go full yolo. Ivory Tower/Venser's Journal helps to mitigate the life lose.
Price of Knowledge - Should be pretty solid in mono-black (even in U/B) control. It also works pretty well with Peer into the Abyss.
Revenge of Ravens - could be helpful to keep attacking creatures away from you or just slow them down.
Scheming Symmetry - Absolutely great card, especially when you can either draw your top card right away, or just cast it with Bolas's Citadel and/or remove the top card of your opp's library, which shouldnt be that hard, depending on you deck, ofc. Lord of the Void/Oblivion Sower should do the job.
Cards I would get rid off:
Blood Artist - Its a good card, but it heavily depends on the board state of every player.. I personally wouldnt play it, unless you can abuse it on your own, pinging opponents by 1 damage..
Beseech the Queen - In my opinion, this is the worst tutor a mono black deck can have, just because you must reveal the card you tutored for.. I would either remove it or replace it with other tutor like Grim Tutor, etc.

Armillary Sphere or Wayfarer's Bauble
Solemn Simulacrum I know, he's annoying and expensive and in every deck but he RAmPS AND DRAWS AND IS COLOURLESS LIKE BLEH
Pristine Talisman Triggers your life-gain abilities.
Gravestorm MAN that theming
Ob Nixilis Reignited one of THE cheapest walkers around
Krav, the Unredeemed and his partner Regna, the Redeemer can generate card advantage by searching for each other, seem to be on theme (life gain and tokens are both parts of this deck, see your commander for details, but krav specifically lets you draw a shit TON of cards. Also, gives you some sac outlet ability and ridiculously tiny activation cost)
Necropotence this IS a more expensive card and with good reason. But of all the "more expensive card draw" cards i believe it is the LEAST more expensive. Seriously this card blows games out. (SIDENOTE this works SUPER WELL with your axis of mortality, necropotence yourself to 1 in response to the trigger then swap with someone to go right back to 35)
Harvester of Souls Gimme card draw for your creatures. Tax'ing the hell out of the entry to hell.
Actually on-theme cards that are really mean:
Magus of the Abyss There's a REASON people refer to chumping every turn as abyss-ing
Infernal Darkness a card you can probably find for 3$ or less, ruins people's happy fun times (except you)
Call to the Grave See above regarding magyss of the abyss.
Patron of the Nezumi Pay the death tax
World Queller This one's especially spicy cause you can choose a permanent type you DON'T have one of.
Angelic Arbiter A little high on the curve tbh but does make your opponents choose combat or spells
Aura of Silence I really think this is a must-have card for this strat.
Archfiend of Depravity New government law, every player shall have no more than 2 creatures. Communism at work, the government gets as many as it wants.
Magister of Worth A VERY thematic board wipe. (it will ALWAYS be a board wipe)
Cliffhaven Vampire For all those extorts and life linkers.
Leonin Arbiter Seriously punishes decks with greedy manabases and green decks
Aven Mindcensor See Leonin Arbiter
Oathsworn Vampire This guy is great card advantage and a recurrable chump for your "symmetric" forced sacrifice effects
Windborn Muse Better than Baird IMO
Orb of Dreams EVERYTHING is tapped
Utter End Seems to me a better card than Mortify, even if it costs 1 more.
Hushwing Gryff Flash torpor orb fucks SO MANY DECKS
Descent into Madness Although this is only particularly strong if you have a huge draw-engine to keep exiling bad cards from your hand instead of permanents.
False Prophet HOW IS THIS CARD SO CHEAP???
Words of Waste Can be powerful but may require too much tuning of mana/draw to be actually good.
Kataki, War's Wage expensive but powerful effect.
That's all for now. too many options honestly.
