Hey, you're welcome. Some more advice is streamline the creatures, reduce down to the best creatures you want to reanimate with Olivia and the best support to make that happen. Consider a toolbox concept with tutors and more looting? Streamlining will help to cut the redundancy that you don't need from creatures. By cutting many high CMC creatures for lower CMC reanimation enablers this also reduces the mana curve which is very high right now at 4.5.
The idea is the enablers help to find the better high CMC creatures you want to reanimate with Olivia/get them into your graveyard. Since the enablers are less mana then you can realistically cast them, hopefully before you cast Olivia. By reducing the mana curve then you could cut some lands: 1x Swamp and 1x Mountain.
Example of streamline current creature base (cuts number of creatures in half):
- Master of Cruelties
- Port Razer
- Rune-Scarred Demon
- Burning-Rune Demon
- Rakdos the Defiler
- Dragon Mage
- Archon of Cruelty
- Balefire Dragon
- Sepulchral Primordial
- Meteor Golem
- Noxious Gearhulk
- Flayer of the Hatebound
The other creature spots would be for support.
- Yahenni, Undying Partisan
- Chainer, Nightmare Adept
- Solemn Simulacrum
- Falkenrath Aristocrat
- Gravebreaker Lamia
Rakdos the Defiler and Archon of Cruelty are better than the other high CMC creatures here who can make opponents sac permanents/creature. Dragon Mage is better than the other high CMC creatures here who draw cards. Sepulchral Primordial makes all the other creatures who reanimate and gain control of opponent creatures redundant. Meteor Golem and Noxious Gearhulk are better than the other creatures who can destroy a creature and Noxious gains life. Balefire Dragon is better than other creatures who do damage to opponent creatures.
With a higher budget these are some changes to consider for more help to setup Olivia:
- Entomb or Cathartic Reunion --> Dark Hatchling
- Buried Alive --> Ruin Grinder
- Unmarked Grave --> Tyrant of Discord
- Demonic Tutor or Seize the Spoils --> Torgaar, Famine Incarnate
- Vampiric Tutor or Unexpected Windfall --> Bladegriff Prototype
- Vile Entomber --> Demon of Loathing
- Anje Falkenrath --> Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni
- Cathartic Reunion --> Demon of Wailing Agonies
- Seize the Spoils --> Anowon, the Ruin Sage
- Unexpected Windfall --> Greater Harvester
These changes are cutting some high CMC creatures to add tutors and/or more looting. I offer more advice in another comment if you're interested. Would you like me to continue?

WotanubisReturned thanks for your comment. I have a Gyruda Historic Brawl deck on arena. There aren’t really enough clones to go turbo so it’s more of a grindy, blink deck with big hits like Massacre Wurm and Noxious Gearhulk.

Redirect says "spell", and Noxious Gearhulk does not target anything when being cast as a spell. it's ability is a triggered ability that won't trigger until after the spell has resolved and the gearhulk is on the field.

Crypt Ghast and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth would be a good way to generate a bunch of mana in addition to getting lifegain triggers from extort! With any 2cmc commander Mox Amber is a decent ramp spell for 0! Also I saw Veinwitch Coven put in a lot of work at prerelease!
Bloodthirsty Aerialist and Scion of the Swarm also seems to gel really well with your deck, getting HUGE with lifegain triggers and also providing a big body for your commander's other ability! Something like Sanctum Seeker also seems like it'd work, doubling down on your commander's trigger.
Oathsworn Vampire also seems like it should go infinite somehow in your deck, I'm trying to find a way!
I don't know if I don't see it, but you have both the altar and Deathmantle in the deck, which also goes infinite with any creature that can make tokens, something like Grave Titan or anything with Fabricate like Marionette Master , which if you can make enough tokens can get you infinite ETBS as well as make your commander infinitely big!
You're also running both Aetherflux and Bolas's Citadel, you can make it an infinite with Sensei's Divining Top , where you cast it then do the draw trigger to put the top on top of the library, then cast it again, all while gaining life from the Resovior. Though running any combos comes down to preferance!
While a little more CMC Noxious Gearhulk Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper and Savra, Queen of the Golgari all seem to be what you'd like in the deck! And if you lean into the sacrifice, Black Market can be another decent way to get a lot of tokens!

in order of your thoughts/questions:
utilizing the Scrap Trawler loop i.e. Junk Diver + Myr Retriever and a sac outlet, you sacrifice the petal, it hits the yard, sacrifice either Myr Retriever or Junk Diver , Scrap Trawler ability on the stack target the Petal resolve the retriever ability targeting whatever . Then you play the petal, sac the petal, sac the Junk Diver / Myr Retriever , with the abilities on the stack target petal with the trawler ability and then myr/diver with the common ability shared between them(i.e. diver can target retriever/retriever can target diver). You will achieve infinite colored mana in this manner
We seem to share a philosophy in deck building, good to make common and relatable grounds with you. I respect you assessment and will keep an open mind to it, ill make sure to keep in touch about when i finally have the freedom to play.
What is it you're specifically referencing? I like Unearth because it hits all key creatures in the deck for one mana and unlike reanimate doesn't cost me life to do so.
where as i would agree with you in every case but this, i find that this correction will be made if or when i find that i can reliably trigger morbid consistently because yes, -13/-13 is great for 1cmc, however if I cannot trigger morbid it's 1cmc for -1/-1 where as i'd rather pay 2cmc for -4/-4. that being said I otherwise agree with you that Tragic Slip is a better option over Grasp of Darkness but until I can games in ill stick with the limit. (the sweet spot most people don't realize of most creatures is in fact 4)
Massacre Wurm is a love of mine however Noxious Gearhulk currently holds this slot. We could surely discuss the swap between the two, however Gearhulk has more direct synergy with the build. Both accomplish something similar and different at the same time
