Return up to two target creature cards from your graveyard to your hand, then discard a card.

Wanted to add ways to mitigate board clears, and help punch through blockers.
would love recommendations for better versions of cards

If I see some fun art, I'll drop it in.
Further concern, it's probably safest to keep everything suitable for public audiences. Sure, Enthralling Victor and Reversal of Fortune have some skin, and Macabre Waltz and Victim of Night bring some gore, but I've seen some "specialty" sleeves and playmats that go a bit too far for my tastes in both categories, and there's plenty more beyond those. Obligatory "not a prude" and this community seems pretty good at self-piloting, but I'll be the boring one and ask that everything stays reasonably SFW.

Ok, I guess the deck works, but it seems far from smooth. Impassioned Orator, Orzhov Racketeers are pretty terrible here, and Basilica Bell-Haunt isn't the most fitting, as well. You should definitely include some kind of free sacrifice-outlet like Nantuko Husk. There are many that are better, but Husk is super-cheap and very effective. Great card draw for the deck is Altar's Reap, and I really like cards such as Macabre Waltz for this kind of strategy. Looking at your overall creature base, Dusk / Dawn seems pretty useful. Oh, and adding a one-drop seems important. Doomed Traveler seems most fitting.

Hey Sauwse, +1
You want cards that, unless they ramp or draw, do at least two things (like sacrifice themselves and trigger). Also, I found death triggers to be more useful than ETBs with Shirei and the stack.
I'd say you can cut the following:
Tree of Perdition... I love it too, but... it paints huge target on your head. I almost never get this to go off without boots, etc. Anything that has to tap is going to be clunky.
Piper of the Swarm... also clunky.
Macabre Waltz... one of the weakest cards for sure.
Hope that helps! Good luck.

There's a promo of Brain Maggot that is absolutely disgusting and perverse, I think it'd be pretty cool.
In terms of extra cards, I'd suggest some legendary creatures from the Kamigawa blocks, not only is their art exactly what you're looking for, but some have the same theme as your deck. Here's the ones I would suggest:
- Seizan, Perverter of Truth
- Iname, Death Aspect
- Patron of the Nezumi
- Kyoki, Sanity's Eclipse
- Kuro, Pitlord
- Yukora, the Prisoner
Some extra weird cards that I've found in my journey's:
- Greel, Mind Raker
- Ashling, the Extinguisher
- Geth, Lord of the Vault
- Macabre Waltz
- Treacherous Urge
- Mindstab Thrull
- Blood Funnel
- Kheru Bloodsucker
Overall, really cool deck theme! I'd put in an Underworld Dreams because it's pretty creepy and goes great with your theme +1

I don't usually do sideboards for my homebrew Pauper Decks as they're more for me and my friend's casual games. But I would definitely fun some Relic of Progenitus, Naturalize, maybe a Doom Blade or two, perhaps more Gurmag Angler or Greater Mossdog you have to be careful though because playing this deck I've learned that if you get too greedy with the graveyard filling you will have nothing but Stinkweed Imp to cast, and they unfortunately make the problem worse. This deck could use some more cards with flashback Gnaw to the Bone could be great for sideboards, or simply just more ways to refill the hand. possibly Grim Discovery or Disentomb. I personally love Macabre Waltz, but it does have a CMC of two. Disentomb can hit two zombies which is perfect for both Putrid Leech and Gurmag Angler.
