The easiest way to make a deck more competitive is with more card draw, ramp (mana), and interaction (removal). Getting close to 10 for each of those categories is a good place to be. For this deck I'd suggest Vanishing Verse, Path to Exile, and Heliod's Intervention for removal; Arcane Signet, Talisman of Hierarchy, Millikin, Springleaf Drum, and Priest of Forgotten Gods for ramp; Mentor of the Meek, Idol of Oblivion, Erebos, Bleak-Hearted, Mangara, the Diplomat, and Esper Sentinel for draw.
Good luck with the deck! :3

Hey, well done with your version of Teysa.
Consider Mimic Vat? It has lots of uses in multiplayer Commander because it can imprint an opponent's creature who died. Best of all it's a repeatable effect to create a creature token and you can change which creature is imprinted as long as the creature died.
Imprint your own creature who has a good dies effect such as Archon of Justice. Add a sac outlet such as Viscera Seer to sac the token before the next end step and control Teysa to repeatedly exile two permanents when the Archon token dies.
Consider Priest of Forgotten Gods and Skirsdag High Priest? These Priests are in my opinion underrated in multiplayer Commander since they're two drops who's if you get to tap them can take over a game with tokens. Skirsdag can be activated when any creature dies that gives it a lot uses in multiplayer. Teysa gives tokens vigilance, flying tokens can attack, then if they need to block, then be tapped to activate Skirsdag.
- Mimic Vat --> Promise of Tomorrow
- Archon of Justice --> Squad Captain
- Viscera Seer --> Ninth Bridge Patrol
- Priest of Forgotten Gods --> Nadier, Agent of the Duskenel
- Skirsdag High Priest --> Righteousness
Good luck with your deck.

I like decks like this. It's a lot like the way I like to build.
I will say, though, that I'm not in love with having Archfiend's Vessel or Blood Speaker in there. The former just seems like it is incredibly situationally limited (unless I'm missing something), and the latter is too expensive for what it does. I do get that you want Clerics to feed Taborax, so my recommended replacements would be Priest of Forgotten Gods and Nullpriest of Oblivion .
I might have other ideas, but I'm on a short break from work right now and don't have time to think. I might get back to you on that.

Just adding a thought - the theme here from some of the cards you mentioned is sacrifice. So I would think this could be a deck where the likes of Mayhem Devil could strive.
As a rough concept, something like:

This deck seems sweet. One thing I think would make it better is taking out some of the generic staple ramp and removal and replacing it with ramp and removal that helps the decks strategy.
For the ramp, might I suggest Priest of Forgotten Gods as a great source of card advantage, removal and mana with all of your tokens. Pitiless Plunderer is also great for fueling the mana needs of decks like this, It is the single best card in my korvold deck and I'd be surprised if it didn't do work here.
For the removal there's numerous options of sackable creatures to pay off all your triggers such as Plaguecrafter , Merciless Executioner , Fleshbag Marauder , Demon's Disciple , Shriekmaw (this feels like too many as you still want a few instant speed, no restriction pieces of removal to save you in a pinch but take your pick of your favourite).
Now for draw, Yawgmoth, Thran Physician is one of the most broken cards in any aristocrats deck,it's a sac outlet, removal for small creatures and it draw hella cards, definite include if you can afford the fairly large price tag. Now there aren't that many cards that draw whenever a TOKEN creature dies but there are a few more niche ones that I'd include, Species Specialist would be good if you have alot of one particular type of token and Dark Prophecy is good if the mana base can support triple black. Also if you're worried about having enough nontokens to sac that you won't run the classics like Midnight Reaper i'd take another look at the Judith, the Scourge Diva in the list I'd also recommend the commander storm cards as they seem very cool in the list when you're repetitively casting the commander, especially the red one letting you basically recast the commander for every casting of it before. Theres also Ashnod's Altar and as another great sac outlet for the deck although idk how much you'll need when you've a guaranteed sac outlet in the command zone. If you're looking for cards to cut I'd immediately look at the instants and sorceries that are just generically good if you're planning on building solely around the back side. I'd also look at the expensive token makers such as Marionette Master and Siege-Gang Commander as those are effects you want earlier in the game. This deck seems very cool and I feel like there's a lot that can be done with it and I do love aristocrat strategies, one of the reasons black is the best colour.
