Howl from Beyond Discussion

I believe I've already commented but have you thought about buffing the creature's power you sacrifice before you sac them? These might be precious slots in the deck and not worth it, but I was thinking cards like Bloodcurdling Scream / Howl from Beyond , and maybe Ghoul's Feast ? One that definitely seems like it should be in (though it is expensive) is Hatred , as you could essentially pay like 10 life before you sac something and create 10 extra zombies.

If you traded out rogues until you had almost all fliers you would open up a lot or fly/anti-non-fly cards. Gravitational Shift is great defense and offense

I tried making a list of creatures alone to cut but it's too large. Basically, the majority of your creatures cost too much and their effects are not worth the cost you are paying. Moreso, the effects don't seem to interact with each other.
For example, you have some token based effects such as Drana Liberator, blood artist, ayara, but not enough token producers in the deck despite grave titan and wurmcoil. Bloodgift, burning and archfiend are all subpar demons that don't matter to an infect strategy. Tymaret is not the best grave yard hate piece in black.
Before I give you a long list of potential cards, do note, you need to work on black's weakness of interacting with artifacts and enchantments. I will create options for that in another comment later, if you are interested in that lmk. Now for potential suggestions....
Sword of Truth and Justice - Synergy, protection. Not needed but fun
Magus of the Coffers - Ramp rarely hurts. Lack of haste, weak body makes it less playable, but ramp is needed after they kill your commander a few times
Murderous Rider - Removal
Nirkana Revenant - Ramp, this and magus, while expensive, actually help you cast the other spells you need (Draw, removal, etc...) as opposed to having a cool creature that doesn't give you the best benefit
Dread Presence - Draw/removal
Mikaeus, the Unhallowed - Another target for removal aside from your commander
Vampiric Tutor - Tutor, not needed but helpful
Malakir Rebirth Flip/ Supernatural Stamina - Oh no, you destroyed my commander, whatever will I do....ooh, nice ETB creature you killed, Eminem's guess whose back plays. Notice how these 2 cards help mitigate a large weakness of the deck, commander removal.
Soul Shatter - Removal
Swiftfoot Boots - Not needed, but redundancy rarely hurts
Opposition Agent - Nice fetchland, tutor, ramp spell, etc...
War Room - Draw in a pinch
Feed the Swarm - Removal that targets enchantments, one of black's weaknesses
Yawgmoth, Thran Physician - Not needed, but profilerate is cool if you can't close out through combat
These are just general suggestions that have some immediate impact of being strictly better than current cards included as well as more synergistic.

you need more interactions. and draw. Beast Whisperer, Phyrexian Rebirth, Smothering Tithe, Rhystic Study, Simic Ascendancy, Phyrexian Arena, Empowered Autogenerator, Cleansing Nova, Krosan Grip, Evolution Sage, Forgotten Ancient, Kodama's Reach, and Farseek, Herald of Secret Streams, and Fathom Mage need to go in. maybe Rampant Growth. maybe Pyramid of the Pantheon or Chromatic Orrery this speeds and mana fixes you. draws you cards, helps speed the game up for you. gives you some artifact and enchantment destruction. because you will need it. add in Peregrine Drake and Temur Sabertooth for infinite colored mana? take out Tezzeret's Gambit, Chord of Calling, Howl from Beyond.
