+1 Cool alter
War Room > Castle - While it provides colorless, you take less damage and has a less color intensive activation cost.
Kaervek, the Spiteful - Is he tech against meta token decks or is there another reason I'm not understanding. Also note, Night of Souls' Betrayal can also work depending on your needs. Lastly, while not a serious suggestion, either of the 2 above or Massacure Wurm + Urborg + Kormus Bell = Fun times!
It seems like you need a bit more card draw, I would recommend any of the following.... Read the Bones , Night's Whisper , Sign in Blood , Syphon Mind , and Phyrexian Arena in particular. If you were to add more card draw, even though these are mostly sorcerries, you could help ensure you don't run out of gas. Moreover, it might warrant a Reliquary Tower to go with your Necropotence. Just an idea
Jet Medallion - Cost reducer

Hey FelixMortem, I like your build! I use Chainer in my K’rrik deck in a combo with Gravecrawler , Carrion Feeder , and Gray Merchant of Asphodel . It wouldn’t hurt cutting a few basics to add the Crawler, Aetherflux Reservoir to gain life with several of your combos, and while you’re at it, you could even throw in Bolas's Citadel and Sensei's Divining Top for another infinite combo. I get that you have a lot of high CMC cards so you may not want to run Citadel, but it’s worth mentioning.
You could also benefit from the added speed of Chrome Mox , Mox Diamond , Lion's Eye Diamond , Lotus Petal , Jet Medallion , Dark Ritual , and Cabal Ritual . You may eventually be able to generate infinite mana with combos, but these basic ramp cards will really help with the early game.
Another idea is to run Peer into the Abyss so you are very likely to draw into a combo on your turn.

cool idea, I would look at your mana curve and reduce the number of spells that you have that cost 7 mana and maybe put them into the 5 mana category,and because of your mana curve I would add more ramp Using more mana rocks Like Thran Dynamo Sapphire Medallion Grand Arbiter Augustin IV Jet Medallion and Pearl Medallion but overall if you can get the mana curve more in tune then it will be a great deck

You may also want to consider the cards Jet Medallion and Pearl Medallion over the diamonds. Although not colored mana the cost reduction can be a net gain for you. I'm having trouble seeing Crawlspace being useful here. As you seem to want creatures to attack you to drain your opponent's life totals but this card seems to work against that.

More cuts/updates through discussion for more experienced players in this playstyle
why: Gearhulk is spot removal, a big recurable body, interacts with half the deck through trawler and gains life, Reaver costs cards and isn't a guarantee
why: The deck is fairly low to the ground as is, most spells are double costed secondly does nothing for the cost of the artifacts in he deck which are at this point in the build the backbone as such due to minimal value was cut for graveyard control, I choose the lantern over Tormod's Crypt for several reasons, those being; (1) the foil art is gorgeous, (2) hits all opponents yards at once, (3) exiles something on ETB and draws a card
why: This one was really hard, and is still really hard for me to justify. what i like about Szat is that it better synergies with Skullclamp , gives me fodder for Grave Pact , Ashnod's Altar , and Phyrexian Altar . Szat in an ideal situation allows me to draw up to 4 cards with clamp at no loss to a board state compared to Haruspex which is more defensive in terms of boards wipes spot removal etc. I still feel that Tevesh offers more to the deck however thus the decision
Why: the "oh shit" factor
4 months ago
I get the flexibility you're talking about in terms of Thespian's Stage in comparison. However ill keep that in mind when i comes to play testing when i get the ability to in the future.
Lotus Petal can be chained infinitely with the scrap trawler line thus another back up of infinite mana for Tergrid's Lantern . I don't like Bubbling Muck because of its symmetry as you've also noticed but did proxy in (until i can get my hands on one) the Jet Medallion
I like the idea of Blast Zone but can't justify the loss ill take as well since it effects the board
Syphon Mind was cut earlier because instead of a use once sorcery regardless of the "value" it accrues, Grim Haruspex is both more explosive in draw power and more easily recurable within the confines of both mono black, and the deck itself.
to note a conversation with some fellows from my play group however there will be a couple adjustments incoming and as follows,
the reasoning being, in an attempt to understand or prepare for the hypothetical weakness of the deck (aggro/token strategies) i've determined that adding some spot removal (lack of opponent having a choice) to accompany the sacrificial removal spells (opponent has the choice) as well as an additional boardwipe in case of "oh shit" moments that being said there is also the possibility that Grasp of Darkness may eventually be replaced by Executioner's Capsule due to it being both an artifact and recurable.
What are your thoughts?

Regarding swapping vesuva instead of thespian's stage, I like stage because it can copy anything anytime. I value the flexibility of it more than the mana it costs to activate. But thats personal preference.
Regarding Dreamstone for Lotus petal, I've never liked petal personally. One and done mana rocks are best used in cEDH decks or decks that can abuse card draw to make up for the disadvantage. I like Bubbling Muck , although it is symmetrical especially with urborg. Again, personal preference. Lastly, another option in this slot is Jet Medallion
Blast Zone - Deal with artifacts and enchantments
Syphon Mind - Draw 3, each opponent discards 1, you get their stuff. All for 4 mana, the value!
Budget per card? As I know chains would fit nicely with anvil and yawgmoth's will is just value.

Hey really cool deck, I'm testing a tymna/ravos hatebears deck rn and it feels pretty powerful! Two cards I'd really recommend you to try are Oketra's Monument and one of the medallions available here, Pearl Medallion and Jet Medallion (depending on the amount of each color you run). The cost reducing it's amazing with stony silence out, and the tokens of the monument are so good at triggering tymna!
