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!

It's weird, Optimator but Scion of the Swarm actually doesn't feel like much of an upgrade. It has no Lifelink and costs 5 cmc so it kinda doesn't break the bar for The Goth Mafia at this point on first inspection. Rather have something cheaper that starts smaller. The built in Flying is nice, but Bloodthirsty Aerialist just made it in and is vastly superior e.g. I appreciate the idea though!
