Intimidate When Sepulchral Primordial enters the battlefield, for each opponent, you may put up to one target creature card from that player's graveyard onto the battlefield under your control.
Sepulchral Primordial Discussion

You have quite a few that I have in my deck. And a couple that I noticed are missing are in your maybeboard.. but thought i would give a couple suggestions.
Bloodghast is expensive, but his recursion is pretty nice. Noosegraf Mob - a bit high CMC, but can make 6 ETBs in a round around the table. And if you can recur him, he can do it again. Puppeteer Clique - 4 ETBs, along with 2 creatures from an opponents graveyard Sepulchral Primordial - guess it depends on your playgroup, but my buddies usually play big beasts, and we usually play 4-5 player Desecrated Tomb depending on how much graveyard recursion you have, this might pay off. Buried Alive is a great way to get those key creatures like Nether Traitor and Gravecrawler where you need them Yahenni, Undying Partisan - an extra sac outlet never hurts, and he is pretty easy to keep alive

Yo, its rad you want to play competitive, but why are you tagging a "It's still in its infancy and definitely a work in progress - suggestions are more than welcome!" deck as competitive? Almost as bad as people that tag their decks with primers and have 3 sentences.
First, rocks. Mana Crypt Chrome Mox Mox Diamond Mana Vault Talisman of Dominance and other color talismans. If you can't go faster than your opponent, they will simply win first. There's a reason almost every competitive commander deck runs these cards
Second, remove non-essential garbage cards. Why do you run Proper Burial ? Anything that doesn't actively help you win but rather sustains a game is (usually) a bad card. Anything that costs >5 mana you should also consider cutting because its either bad or you can do it for cheaper, Sepulchral Primordial Agent of Treachery Rise of the Dark Realms etc. As we talked about earlier with rocks, competitive EDH goes REAL fast, so you won't get to 9 mana to cast your big spell (that doesn't even win on resolution) without fast mana, which you don't run.
Third, replace bad interaction with cheaper more reliable interaction. Render Silent is pretty cool but it costs 3 mana for a counterspell, and it is extremely color intensive. Dissolve is also 3 mana and that simply doesn't cut it in competitive. Look at Dispel Swan Song Force of Will Pact of Negation Force of Negation Mana Leak Spell Pierce . Also look at your removal, Merciless Eviction is cool and flexible but not a competitive card, because it costs 6 mana to wipe. You should consider running better targeted removal too, like Doom Blade and Fragmentize
TL;DR Replace high mana cost cards with lower ones to reduce amount of dead cards in hand at all points of game.

EDH is really fun! Especially when you make a deck around a theme. I've made a similar Grixis theft deck with Jeleva. Here's a bunch of cards I have found fun and effective in my Grixis theft deck:
Emrakul, the Promised End , Gonti, Lord of Luxury , Grenzo, Havoc Raiser , Havengul Lich , Hostage Taker , Keiga, the Tide Star , Kheru Mind-Eater , Lord of the Void , Mindclaw Shaman , Necrotic Ooze , Nightveil Specter , Sepulchral Primordial , Sphinx Ambassador , Boneyard Parley , Knowledge Exploitation , Mnemonic Betrayal , Order of Succession , Role Reversal , Talent of the Telepath , Telemin Performance , Worst Fears , Commandeer , Desertion , Gather Specimens , Redirect , Reverberate , Spelljack , Wild Ricochet , Chaos Wand , Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker

Thanks for the +1! Always appreciate it.
And thanks for the heads up on Flayer. I originally took it out because it actually does not trigger off of things like Living Death or Sepulchral Primordial , but getting a consistent effect off of Chainer's ability is probably good enough. I'll try it out, one came in the precon after all! =]

I also put Ilharg in but you already have it ;)

Skydaddy : Thanks for bringing it up! Yup, Altar of Dementia would be a great choice to add in. I've personally used it in both my Trostani list (which I definitely need to update!) and my Mono-Black Chainer list to great effect. Altar's strongest point is that it lets you mill out decks you cannot beat with combat damage alone. However, this deck tends to not have enough juice to mill someone out entirely, so I chose to explore other options first. Also, I don't expect this list to be too heavy-handed on the number of sacrifice outlets, but Altar's main usage as a self-mill card would shine in a deck like this. I know from experience that it functions well overall, it likely should have a home here.
I will probably replace Goblin Bombardment with Alter, as Bombardment's effect has had less impact than I originally expected. If this deck were to take a more go-wide plan with tokens, Bombardment would work much better. I have other changes in mind for this deck too, primarily involving Sneak Attack and some other large beaters such as Grave Titan and Sepulchral Primordial . Altar of Dementia should perform even better in that case, so I'll definitely take the opportunity to add it to the decklist once I get some major changes ironed out. Cheers, and thanks for +1'ing the deck! =]

I don't really know that Mogis falls into what I would consider "political." I think "oppressive" is how I would describe him.
With that said, I'd play to his strengths, that being oppression. You've got Animate Dead listed, and I think a reanimator package is in order, if all your foes are sacrificing creatures. Other options are Necromancy , Dance of the Dead . Sepulchral Primordial could be fun.
Cards like Subversion play into more of what Mogis does; oppress others.
That's it for now. Hope that helps you get started.
