General
-------------------------------
I know you have a ton of decks, but arcane signet and commanders sphere likely belong in every deck.

36 lands/4 mana rocks seems too high. General rule for me is 35 lands - 1 for every 2-3 mana rocks. This deck also has a low cmc and generates treasures so it seems like you are ~3 lands too high. I would start cutting the 5 color lands and if you bump your cmc up at all, consider adding signets for minimal ramp at the cost of a lands at a 1/3 ratio.

add
Castle Locthwain - low oppurtunity cost for high value. your deck is half black and this can get you back into a game where you run low on resources

remove
Yawgmoth is a heavy combo card, I dont see a combo for him, he would likely be better in anafenza where you can combo with persist creatures and bolster and all that. the proliferate is powerful, but checkout the options under infect.
Brazen Freebooter Captain Lannery Storm Corsair Captain Dire Fleet Hoarder Pitiless Plunderer Prosperous Pirates Rapacious Dragon Sailor of Means - you already have enough draft chaff in the random infect creatures, revel in riches win is accomplished with a single board clear, or ~2 turns of attacking, they are not required for revel in riches.

If you wanna go revel in riches
-------------------------------
Phyrexian Tower - sac outlet and fast mana. see also Westvale Abbey  Flip
Exava, Rakdos Blood Witch/Anger - lets you attack after a board clear
Mikaeus, the Unhallowed - this may be in another deck for flavor reasons, but basically makes all non humans immortal
Last One Standing - This basically a better damnation in rackdos. This should replace bontus last reckoning or just be an
additional board clear if you wanna go reanimator with mikaeus, hell even Nevinyrral's Disk is better than bontus
Phyrexian Scriptures ^ all those reasons, mild shoutout to Chain Reaction Blasphemous Act Spell Swindle/Storm the Vault  Flip/Brass's Bounty any of these will replace all of the draft chaff and free up some card slots
Curse of Opulence - ramps and duh
Hellkite Tyrant - likely in another deck, but consider it

If you wanna go infect
-------------------------------
Karn's Bastion - proliferate the counters and infect counters
Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth + Filth - another way to get unblockable. Wonder/Levitation also make blocking hard
Tainted Strike - the best thing about this card, is the fact you can cast it on your opponents creatures. This also combos well with reach creatures like Judith, the Scourge Diva/Syr Konrad, the Grim allowing you to kill your opponents w/o attacking. Does not apply to Blood Artist because life lose does not deal infect damage.
Move Drana, Liberator of Malakir to the mainboard, shes too synergistic to leave behind
Warstorm Surge - deal infect damage without attacking Stalking Vengeance is a worse version
Sword of Truth and Justice - prolly the best sword for this deck.
Bident of Thassa//Coastal Piracy - unblockable means free cards
Open Into Wonder/Mogis's Marauder - moar unblockable
Guildmages' Forum - synergy land
planeswalkers go up a ton with proliferate, Chandra, Flamecaller is a board clear, filter and damage engine. you will pretty much be able to ult Dack Fayden the turn you cast him. Liliana, Dreadhorde General looks amazing in this deck. ulting Lukka, Coppercoat Outcast for the win? just lul
Geode Golem - consider him if you think you need marchesa for the deck to work
Cyclonic Rift - likely in another deck, but another way to go unblockable River's Rebuke/Profaner of the Dead budget options
the vivid lands work with proliferate

Vigean Graftmage - may be better in your twiddle deck, but you can do a number of infinite combos with this card if you wanna go that direction. not very recommended with your current build

Looks good. Maybe you should be running Rapacious Dragon. It's good for mana excelleration and is a dragon too.

Why are Command Tower and Reflecting Pool in the maybeboard?

You might want to consider running Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle.

Hey, I've been checking out your deck to find cards that would work well in my own brew and I have a couple suggestions for cards to possibly remove - Glissa, the Traitor is way too cute for a deck built around sacrificing your own things, and although you may eventually end up with one or two artifacts in the graveyard, it's just usually a pretty dead card. Goblin Cratermaker is also way too cute, just run Thrashing Brontodon instead. Marionette Master is too finicky for this deck, seeing as you run only 16 artifacts and most of them have low cmc and you don't want to sack many of them. I understand you create a lot of artifact tokens, but Marionette Master is really not the best way you could be taking advantage of sacrificing your artifacts. There are other cards I would take out, such as World Shaper and Rapacious Dragon , but for the sake of brevity, I'll keep this list short. I like the way you're going with this deck, and I think after some tweaking, it could be pretty good.

Any sort of ETB effect will be perfect.

Also Flameshadow Conjuring would be perfect to get double triggers off of your creatures, and it gives the token haste so you can swing without losing much since it'd be exiled at your end step anyway. This way you get twice the value off of the ETB and you can swing for some boardstate pressure.

HERE is a list of creatures in Rakdos that have Madness.

Some Suggestions:

Dragons

Nesting Dragon - Random wrath protector

Rapacious Dragon - Good ETB effect if you consider adding more blink effects or ETB Doublers.

Kolaghan, the Storm's Fury - Can be a good Finisher depending of your board state, since you can pay his Dash cost.

Hoarding Dragon - It is an Artifact tutor. It is risky, but it usually pays off if you have the right targets.

Demons - Mass Board Removal

Demon of Dark Schemes - Reanimator and mass removal in a single card. Your creatures usually dodge his minus/minus.

Rakdos, the Showstopper - More Risky, but can be a one sided mass removal on 6/6 flying trampler.

Angels

Angel of Finality - It is really important to have Gravehate in edh.

Sunblast Angel - Conditional one-sided wrath.

ETB, triggers doublers

Panharmonicon - Double all your ETBs effects, including Kaalia. Can be deadly if you prioritize ETBs effects among your creatures.

Flameshadow Conjuring - Act as a pseudo Panharmonicon that can "attack" and trigger some leave the battlefield effects. I think this card is a hidden gem in EDH. There is other cards that do this, such as Minion Reflector and Mirror March .

Strionic Resonator - It doubles one of your triggers. It also works with combat triggers and die triggers.

Conjurer's Closet - It is kind of slow, but can generate a lot of value with Kaalia. Depends of the meta.
