I don't know what your budget is, but this seems like an ideal deck to be running some sort of fetchlands, even the common variants. They let you recur Bloodghast an additional time and even grant extra damage from Mayhem Devil . Hofri Ghostforge and Rekindling Phoenix feel quite slow relative to the power of their effect. It also seems a shame not to have as many black creatures available to sacrifice as possible for the sake of Teysa, Orzhov Scion , although I could also see Pawn of Ulamog fulfilling a similar role. Maybe something like Gutterbones , Reassembling Skeleton , or a combo of Relentless Dead and Gravecrawler could prove useful. There's also Grim Haruspex as another way to refuel or Gate to the Afterlife if pitching cards is important.

The point of Archenemy is that you get the schemes to equal the balance a bit. Metagaming to end the game as fast as possible or dedicating your deck to have your opponents play as little magic as possible won't lead to a fun weekend.
Play a deck that's fun, that's capable of big mana plays, although do play a few more boardwipes than you would. Something like Karametra, God of Harvests or Golos, Tireless Pilgrim, to make sure you have plenty of resources all the time.
If I'd be invited to a game like this, I'd probably play my Rankle, Master of Pranks deck, with plenty of mana doublers like Magus of the Coffers and Crypt Ghast (extort works amazingly in this setup), recurring creatures like Bloodghast and Gutterbones to keep sacrificing to the rankle triggers, discard & draw punishment like Underworld Dreams and Liliana's Caress, big demons like Razaketh, the Foulbloodedand Vilis, Broker of Blood and big mana finishers like Torment of Hailfire. It holds its own pretty well in multiplayer, and Rankle scales pretty well with an increasing number of opponents.

So, the first card that came to my mind was Lurrus of the Dream-Den gives you a bit of recursion/card advantage. Rankle, Master of Pranks is wonderfully versatile. Thoughtseize is definitely worth a few wild cards as it sures up control match ups a bit more. Gutterbones and Dread Wanderer should also be up for consideration. Lastly, Murderous Rider and Eliminate to beef up your removal suite.

I like the list, seems like a lot of fun.
Maybe more creatures that can recur along the lines of Tenacious Dead? Gravecrawler, Bloodsoaked Champion, maybe Gutterbones I suppose that's to your hand but at least Judith and a lot of other effects in your deck enable its return ability. I could be wrong but I can see the engine running out of steam if you miss out on your Reassembling Skeleton to enable consistent use of your sac effects.
But the deck looks very fun and fast, cheers.

Dude those dragons are doing so well (when no one wipes them)!
Did you want a similar deck? 'Cuz that's what you've got here... but I think you should lean into go-wide-aggro > midrange and play more 1-2 cmc creatures and move all your ramp to 2 (Rampant Growth, signets, etc).
Rhys the Redeemed... he's getting a reprint
Gutterbones... reusable 1-drops
Norin the Wary... free 1/1s or ETB triggers
Mist-Cloaked Herald... anything that can't be blocked
Graveblade Marauder... anything <4 with deathtouch
Alpine Houndmaster... going wide?
Malakir Cullblade... grower not a shower
Tribal decks have so much flavor! Hope this helps, maybe we'll see it next weekend? :o

I am not sure how much you want this deck to look like the meta yawgmoth deck, but if you're trying to get sacrifice value, the full suite of undying creatures (Young Wolf, Strangleroot Geist, and Geralf's Messenger) are all really good. I can understand that that would put a lot of pressure on your Mana base, but undying creatures are really good sacrifice value. I may be partial though because I really like undying creatures. If you don't like that route, I'd recommend running cards like Nether Traitor, Gravecrawler, Gutterbones, or even Bloodsoaked Champion. Another card that seems good here would be Bitterblossom/Dreadhorde Invasion if you are worried about cards like Path to Exile or graveyard hate. Hope this was helpful.
