Just a couple of ideas I was inspired to do put together by seeing your deck.

Good for Monocolor:
Excuse me, you dropped this:

Followup thoughts: You kind of already have the trifecta of level 1 vamps here being Viscera, Noble and Ebon Legion along with Bloodghast. I personally prefer to go one or the other between straight up aggressive or the more Aristocrats style sacrifice engine. Myself, I'd replace Highborn or maybe Cordial with Gatekeeper of Malakir and/or Gifted Aetherborn . Though between Sorin, Zagras and Ebon you already have a lot of deathtouch going around.
Other big creatures to consider: Vampire Nocturnus because you have fetch lands and Seer + Ghast, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet who has excellent synergy with the first strike + deathtouch interaction, and Champion of Dusk . Not a big fan of Yahenni here (Love him in EDH but trying to do too many things in Modern makes it feel cluttered).
Non-creature support: I like including Mutavault and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth . Terminate is a good Rakdos creature hate spell that can be easily swapped for Dreadbore in your side game 2 if necessary. Maybe up your Thoughtseize count or toss in 2-3 Inquisition of Kozilek .

Riftstone Portal feels much better than Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth . on-colour mana, plus it's a good target to have in the bin and doesn't give the opponent any sort of leg up, if they're playing turbo depths or anything of the like

I, for one, think Eminence has great potential as a Commander mainstay. Not all are created equally. In my opinion, Arahbo, Roar of the World is by far the weakest. To the best of my knowledge, Edgar Markov is banned in French (1v1) Commander for being able to run away far too easily.
I must admit, I've never played with or against an Inalla, Archmage Ritualist deck, but given just what Wizards can do, I'm sure she can be built to be very brutal.
And finally, in my experience, The Ur-Dragon is a bit of a Timmy / Johnny deck. I've played against some that absolutely destroy the game and have unchecked power. I've also seen some that completely fizzle out. It seems like there are a few set pieces such as Utvara Hellkite and Silumgar, the Drifting Death that really impact he board. Otherwise it's mostly fodder that's yes dangerous and hard to block, but when it becomes 3v1 the game wraps up pretty quick.
With that said, I feel like the power dynamic was missed pretty bad. I don't believe these four were adequately balanced with one-another. This, I believe, makes a negative impression on Eminence as a whole, as we have a select few to draw experience and knowledge from, meaning our personal interactions are a bit more solidified and rigid.
I personally would love and welcome a second round with Eminence and see it done right. Personally, I think an Omnath with an Eminence-Landfall trigger would be epic. Something like: "Eminence - Whenever a land enters the battlefield under your control, if Omnath, ~~~ is in the command zone or on the battlefield, add one mana of any color that land could produce."
Sort of shuts down an Evolving Wilds and fetches as they can't produce mana unless you have other elements in play, such as an Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth (giving liberties that this Omnath is potentially WUBRG), but I digress.
- Though I suppose Urborg can be in a deck without in the Commander's identity as Urborg itself lacks any symbols on it.
How does the community feel about Eminence? Would you want to see another go at it? If so, any ideas you'd like to see explored?

if you can get your hands on it you could also do with Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth

While it is clear that he took the standard cedh version of this deck and tweaked it a little to not make it a quick match and an overall shorter video, I do have a guess as to why he has something like Cabal Coffers with only 6 swamps. Obviously, it's main reason is because he is also using Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth . However, it may also be because Ashlen also had an Urborg, allowing him to benefit off of playing coffers. I don't know if they go over their decks in any way beforehand and can change them up real quick but coffers is a lot stronger if two people are capable of playing Urborg. Plus, this kind of stuff is commonplace in cedh, so it's not like running coffers just for the sake of having a few extra mana off of 6 swamps is unreasonable given the playstyle of cedh decks. This holds true for Gaea's Cradle as well, since even getting two mana off of it makes it vastly superior to other lands.

Hahaha raspberryfish25 now you mention it, it does sound funny :-). If answers are needed in your meta these are definitely good choices, the Golgari colors have lots of answers to play in the form of targeted and mass removal. Abrupt Decay could also be included. Eyeblight Massacre could also get rid of tokens, without harming your own board state. Lys Alana Scarblade in combination with untap abilities could also perform well to get rid of pesky creatures. You can always recur the discarded creatures with several black cards out there, though not really my style of play. Cover of Darkness is sitting in my binder, trying it out, great evasive tech. Genesis Wave , now that is a digger I do like, definitely agree with you on that one.
As for the cards you are willing to try, they are indeed very strong, but strong comes with a price tag, if budget isn't an issue definitely worth upgrading.
Chord of Calling budget one-time use Zenith, Crashing Drawbridge cheaper crossroads, although usable the next turn, but only haste on your side of the board. Fauna Shaman is already the budget version of Survival of the Fittest , but Evolutionary Leap is the cheapest closest card with more or less the same effect. Song of the Dryads combo sounds like a lot of fun indeed. With enough counters on Champion of Lambholt you can achieve the same for the price of a bag of crisps. Seeker of Skybreak is a great "untapper", maybe you like Quirion Ranger and Scryb Ranger too.
Time Spiral remastered comes with a few nice reprints like Slaughter Pact , Summoner's Pact , Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Damnation . Still on the steep side, price-wise, but way cheaper than the currently printed versions.
