shadowmage you won't know if your opponent has a combo piece unless you cast specifically thoughtsieze or duress, the only two pieces of disruption in your deck, and choose the person who you cast thoughtsieze or duress on, which is probably the person who is about to win. Scheming symmetry is not a good card, and politics don't exist in cEDH. in addition, you aren't playing Priest of Gix , Overeager Apprentice , or Blood Pet , which are just rituals with K'rrik in play and those seem pretty good when you think about it.

Slivortal, another "free" spell worth considering is Priest of Gix . Though not as good as the 0cmc creatures because it requires you have mana open to cast it, it does have the added benefit of converting into . It's just a shame it's a human; looping it with Mikaeus would be sick.
I actually hadn't been thinking about using Carnifex Demon strictly to cancel Mikaeus, the Unhallowed 's counters; I'd been thinking to make a one-sided wipe. As I was typing that comment out, I remembered Mikaeus didn't grant undying to himself, thus was vulnerable to Carnifex counters. I want to use Hex Parasite in the deck anyway, both for flavor and mechanical reasons (nuke opponents' creatures while keeping mine around and making a massive Parasite to boot), so it seemed a logical way to keep Mikaeus up and running.
Thank you for spelling out the infinite combo to me. I was very short on sleep when I read your deck's description, so I couldn't really grasp what I was reading at that point in time. When first brainstorming for this deck, my first instinct was to go all in on the -1/-1 counter theme, including perhaps wither and infect, and I failed to notice how sweet Yawgmoth truly is. What's fun is that I was already considering some of the other elements of the combo for the deck ( Myr Sire , Rotlung Reanimator ). I also really like the idea of Archfiend of Ifnir , as it plays nicely with Yawgmoth's second ability, and spreads infection to my opponents.
My build will likely end up much less streamlined than yours, due to the fact that I want a heavy focus on flavor. For instance, while I'm sure there's nothing saying faeries can't seek compleation, I'll probably skip Bitterblossom because, while mechanically it's a strong fit, it just doesn't scream Phyrexia to me (the fact I don't own a copy is further deterrence, lol). I'll also be more inclined to use infect, which is rather surprising, given how much I usually dislike playing against infect decks... but a Phyrexian theme deck without at least Glistening Oil or Phyresis strikes me as lacking. Whether or not I try for a poison counter win remains to be seen, though.
Currently I'm looking at a list of 250+ cards; I spent last weekend moving and hadn't had time at all this week to tinker with my build. Once I get a chance to cull unnecessary jank and get to something a little more reasonable I'll link it and see what you think.

Kira0077 natural order doesn't get razaketh; switch pattern of rebirth for natural order in a hulk-only list. eldritch evolution gets mindslicer, not hulk, and finale gets either viscera seer or a utility creature.
here's a challenge for folks who enjoy them: come up with a razaketh line that uses Priest of Gix instead of LED. you start hellbent with no mana and are restricted to golgari color identity, but you can have as many creatures with no abilities, tapped lands, and life as you need. off the top of my head, here's one that requires a starting state of four creatures: sac for lotus petal, mana crypt and priest of gix, hardcast priest, repeatedly reanimate priest (like eye witness), after netting BBBB or more sac priest and last creature for hulk and BS, hardcast BS discarding hulk, sac it for anything returning hulk, sac hulk :/ as usual you can adjust the ratio of creatures to lands but it remains very crappy, someone outdo it...

Priest of Gix I know it's a bit left field but if you're exploiting reanimation there may be a way to use him or too clunky

If you need help with knowing how much/what ramp to use, you might want to check out https://www.mtggoldfish.com/articles/brewer-s-minute-ramp-math
I am not an expert in mono, but for you I recommend adding:
Myriad Landscape can go in almost any edh deck
Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is solid in any one- or two-colour deck
Lake of the Dead has a downside, but you won't care when you're using it (trust me)
Petrified Field to protect valuable lands.
I'm not sure how I feel about Temple of the False God , but it is an EDH classic.
Other mono ramp
I ended up finding so many mono ramp cards I thought I might as well make a more full list.
Solemn Simulacrum is a good catch-all
Nirkana Revenant is good in the right deck
Bog Witch is kind of weird, but has fringe uses
I haven't thought hard, but you might be able to do some flicker shenanigans with Priest of Gix
Worst case, an edh deck can always load up on rocks. These are some of the best ones for mono black
Sol Ring every edh deck should include this
Pillar of Origins for tribal decks
In most games, these do the same thing: Commander's Sphere , Cryptolith Fragment Flip, Cultivator's Caravan , Darksteel Ingot , Hierophant's Chalice , Honor-Worn Shaku , Mana Prism , Manalith , Orazca Relic , Phyrexian Totem , Powerstone Shard , Pristine Talisman , Seer's Lantern , Serum Powder , Skull of Ramos , Sol Grail , Spectral Searchlight , Vessel of Endless Rest , Victory Chimes , and Chromatic Lantern
Thought Vessel if you fill your hand
Chrome Mox is usually worth the card disadvantage
Mox Amber if you usually have your commander/a legendary thing out
Mox Diamond if lands in your graveyard is a good thing
Mox Opal if you have 2+ extra artifacts
Black Market is good if you tend to sacrifice/kill a lot of creatures
Liliana of the Dark Realms is nice with proliferate, and makes sure you don't miss land drops in the mid/late-game
Sword of the Animist is best with one-mana creatures, and if you attack often, but might be justified even if not
Carnival of Souls is fun with some creature-based combos
Crypt of Agadeem works, but only if you consistently have 4+ creatures in the graveyard
Phyrexian Tower eats your creatures
Cabal Coffers is a staple
Cabal Stronghold is great if you can't afford many nonbasics, and might be good enough besides.

Priest of Gix again for more ritual mana.
Overeager Apprentice can pull the trigger any time for more black mana.
Sidisi, Undead Vizier as a tutor, a body, and a sac trigger.
Not sure if this is what you're looking for but I hope it helps.
