You know 3n3rgy2, I thought about running Chainer but I honestly like Balthor more. It's such a powerful (though expensive) ability! And yep, it's called An Old-School Nightmare; you may have seen it before? There is also a really awesome old-school Volrath the Fallen deck I see from time to time - highly recommend checking it out if you haven't already!
PAHamster, Plague Spitter seems like it might go really well here. Gloomdrifter, Plague Dogs, and Death's-Head Buzzard also might be useful if you have reiable sac outlets. I use them as dusters in my own deck :)

DeinoStinkus Thank you. I have considered Lightning Bolt but opted to use Abrade instead as it offers more versatile and answers more threats. Mana Vault was also considered but to get the ball rolling we really need our commander out and the pips make generic rocks not as good; granted, we could ramp into a nice pay off eldrazi but for the most part I wanted colored rocks. Spawn of Mayhem may replace Plague Spitter after a bit of testing; admittedly I'm not a huge fan of the art on it - but this is meant to be an optimal deck so it could see an inclusion eventually. Rift Bolt is way too slow and doesn't do enough. Perhaps you meant Flame Rift?

So happy to see someone build a commander deck exclusively with old school frames, especially black which has the best old frame IMO. I have a five color Karona, False God deck with the same theme myself :)
Subbing to this deck as it has given me ideas to maximize the old frame cards in my own mono-black deck.

Some other on-flavor options to bring the curve down a bit are Wharf Infiltrator (also lets you ditch higher-costed cards you might not be able to use for value and recur with your Hell's Caretaker) and Plague Spitter. Woe Strider is a nice piece of recurrable value that helps you smooth your draws a bit.
Fleshwrither is a nice utility horror that lets you go search for pieces like Hell's Caretaker or Ravenous Chupacabra.
And while it may not be as budget, Phyrexian Revoker helps you answer some threats from across the board.

A massive update this time. One that I'm very excited about. Here are the changes:
- Gilded Lotus -> Fanatical Firebrand
- Sword of the Animist -> Swiftfoot Boots
- Mana Crypt -> Thermo-Alchemist
- Neheb, the Eternal -> Pilgrim's Eye
- Abyssal Persecutor -> Coldsteel Heart
- Dire Fleet Ravager -> Rune-Scarred Demon
- Fiery Confluence -> Painful Truths
- Olivia Voldaren -> Goblin Fireslinger
- Damnation -> Damnable Pact
- Steel Hellkite -> It That Betrays
- Bojuka Bog -> Smoldering Marsh
- Oppression -> Artisan of Kozilek
- Rakdos, the Showstopper -> Theater of Horrors
- Sol Ring -> Lobber Crew
- Flame Rift -> Gamble
- Rakdos Charm -> Lotus Petal
- Duplicant -> Walking Ballista
- Scourge of the Throne -> Void Winnower
- Bloodgift Demon -> Mask of Memory
- Kokusho, the Evening Star -> Painful Lesson
- Oblivion Stone -> Necropotence
- Risk Factor -> Dark Ritual
- Whip of Erebos -> Plague Spitter
- Heartless Hidetsugu -> Arguel's Blood Fast Flip
Overall, the deck is faster and more consistent. Here's a summary of changes by card category:
- direct damage is now at lower cmc
- -1 Ramp
- +1 protection/haste
- +2 tutor
- +5 draw
- +1 anti-control
- -4 Creature removal
- -2 graveyard hate
- -1 discard
- -1 extra attack
- -1 lifegain/recursion
- +1 removal
So the changes overall are lower cmc, more draw and tutor, less creature removal and less utility (graveyard hate, extra attacks, etc.) Overall, the early turn plays to get direct damage and get Rakdos out are far more prevalent. The deck is more aggressive and more focused now, and plays much smoother.
And yes, this is the only deck I have where I've taken out Sol Ring . It's simply better to have only colored mana in order to cast Rakdos as consistently as possible!

Very cool; building around Kazarov is on my ever-expanding EDH “To Do” list.
