I am a player who loves my graveyard ... I have more competitive decks: Meren lord of the undead - Gitrog The Bogeyland - Muldrotha Competitive/Stax and others more goodstuff with land-theme Taisigur Lands Matter - Muldrotha Land Power!
There's a card that the commander's guys don't give much value but is stupidly strong on a Meren deck: Skirsdag High Priest! Try matching with Apprentice Necromancer and you have two friends for life!
I don't see much use to Seedborn Muse and Underworld Dreams. Be very careful with The Gitrog Monster because you don't have a lans-reanimator like Crucible of Worlds or Ramunap Excavator ... having a Life from the Loam would be a good help ...
I hope I could have been useful! Continue this journey of digging up the dead! Muuuahahah!

Very good golgari budget!
I looked at your Apprentice Necromancer and immediately remembered Skirsdag High Priest! Very good for any time of the game and easily create a horde of demons! I will seriously consider putting it on my Meren lord of the undead!
Eldritch Evolution is one of the best tutors for Meren;
Good Luck to your decks and keep safe!

you could use something better than rakdos charm to finish off the opponent, cus if they dont have a creature out that kinda sucks. Lightning Bolt is good in pretty much all decks . you might want more lands and maybe some more removal spells too. Go for the Throat , Doom Blade Cast Down Tragic Slip arent bad options.
Sign in Blood is good for card draw and you can make the opponent lose two life to also finish them off if master of cruelties hits
Crypt Ghast can be great for loads of mana
Skirsdag High Priest is another cool cleric
some other cool demons are:
Bloodgift Demon he can also finish the game a turn after if master of cruelties hits

Editing the deck a bit, let me know what you think:

Have a Similar Demon worship/human sacrifice with some extra synergies. Basically, it generates small tokens to feed the demons, but also generates huge flyers. Starting with 2x Ravenous Demon Flip and 3x Demon of Catastrophes, cheap and lethal, just because you can get short of tokens. 2 copies of Rite of Belzenlok, wich generates creatures to sacrifice and at the third turn since you cast cast it, generates a huge flying 6/6 Demon token with trample. My main token generator creatures are 4 copies of Doomed Traveler and 2 copies of Thraben Doomsayer. I use 2x Skirsdag Flayer as a crature removal wich at the same time triggers Skirsdag High Priest ability (4 copies). Which is great. Tokens generators spells:3x Lingering Souls, 4x Gather the Townsfolk, 2xPromise of Bunrei, 1x Increasing Devotion.Some more synergies: 2 copies of Teysa Karlov, witch doubles tokens when Doomed Traveler dies, also giving vigilance and lifelink to ALL you tokens, including the demons generated from Rite of Belzenlok and Skirsdag High Priest, which is pretty solid. The rest of the Deck includes removals: 2x Bone Splinters, 4x Mortify. 2x Altar's Reap also feed the Sacrifice/Trigger mechanism giving extra cards. 2x Westvale Abbey Flip for flavour and, of course, a 9/9 flying, lifelink, Indestructible hasted finisher!

Personally I think the logistics of the deck should always come down to playtesting and the local meta. That being said, here's what I'd change out from a glance. Also I avoided most of the discard to make room for card draw.
Remove - 15
- 4 Drainpipe Vermin - No evasion
- 2 Nezumi Bone-Reader - Resource intensive
- 1 Pack Rat - Even more resource intensive
- 1 ravenous rat - Terrible late game
- 4 Despise - To make room for card draw
- 1 Duress - Keep 3 to check for counters or board wipe before committing a lot of creatures to the board.
- 2 Barren Moor - Really bad in opening hand.
Add - 15
- 4 Swamp - Bringing the land count to 22 because a lot of cards in your deck still require mana for abilites. (Pack Rat, Bone-reader, Piper, Ink-Eyes)
- 3 Ayara, First of Locthwain - Not 4 to avoid dead draws because it is legendary.
- 4 Piper of the Swarm - Not legendary, earliest token generator, and works with pretty much everything in the deck/fuels Ayara and Marrow-Gnawler.
- 2 Morbid Curiosity - To fill up your hand mid to late game.
- 2 Read the Bones - More card draw
- Dark Prophecy - Extra value from sac engines here. Ayara should offset the life payment.
- Skirsdag High Priest - Rats heralding Demons!
You'll still have 20 rats in the deck, which should keep Marrow-Gnawler happy. Read the Bones and Morbid Curiosity are probably the easiest thing to change here for sideboard. I'd probably replace it with Throat Slitter and/or Okiba-Gang Shinobi (or two of the bonus cards) depending on the meta. Hope this helps and I wish you luck with you FNM =).

Hey, nice budget version of Yawgmoth.
Gray Merchant of Asphodel + Phyrexian Reclamation to keep recurring Gray can be another budget win condition. Yawgmoth can be an enabler for Gray + Reclamation because he can keep sacing Gray. Gray is a very good budget card for mono black in multiplayer Commander where you'll have many opponents. Reclamation's repeatable recursion can be helpful with the strategy of sacing creatures and can recur at instant speed. Gray and Reclamation could replace Cordial Vampire and Palace Siege.
Skirsdag High Priest is an underrated budget card in multiplayer Commander. Repeatable morbid can give you a lot of value, good with token strategies. Tap 1/1 tokens to make 5/5 flying beaters. Yawgmoth can be an enabler to activate morbid at instant speed. The nice thing about morbid in multiplayer Commander is it can be activated when any creature dies which includes an opponents creature on any turn. Priest could replace Manakin.
Dark Ritual is a staple card for black. Plaguecrafter is excellent in multiplayer Commander. With 30x Swamps Mutilate has great scalability. Victimize is powerful budget reanimation. These cards could replace Vona's Hunger, Thaumatic Compass Flip, Songs of the Damned, Never/Return.
Everflowing Chalice and Prismatic Lens could replace Corrupted Grafstone and Manalith. You don't need all mana rocks to make black mana since you have 30x Swamps. Black mana shouldn't be a problem, mana rocks just need to make mana for ramp and that mana is fine as colorless. Chalice can be proliferated which is a big bonus.
Good luck with your deck.
