Scavenging Ooze is a good card, but doesn't play into the theme. Don't take it out necessarily, just something to keep in mind. Altar of Dementia would be an all-star in this deck. Fiend Hunter is kinda absurd. You can sac it before you exile, so the creature is permanently exiled. Disciple of Bolas is great because it gives you repeatable card draw in creature form which is huge for this deck.
Other good cards (some are around $5 but might be worth splurging for): Solemn Simulacrum, Stitcher's Supplier, Zulaport Cutthroat, Grim Haruspex, Ashnod's Altar, Vraska, Golgari Queen, Buried Alive, Viscera Seer, Pitiless Plunderer, Dictate of Erebos, Pawn of Ulamog, Smothering Abomination (this one triggers for any type of sacrificing), Archon of Justice, and Stonehorn Dignitary
In general, you have more noncreatures than I think is optimal. I could be wrong, and it's your deck. Build it how you want, but I think this deck excels with a higher creature count. If it's a creature it's repeatable and still usable if milled. Noncreatures aren't. For instance, I like Farhaven Elf more than Harrow because it is a creature.
Looking over your deck, you don't have many actual ways to sacrifice creatures. You have a couple that self sac, such as Caustic Caterpillar, and Carrion Feeder, but you definitely need more. Cards like Viscera Seer, Altar of Dementia, Ashnod's Altar, Woe Strider, Fanatical Devotion, Sadistic Hypnotist, and Stronghold Assassin are needed to make this a sac deck.

Here are my suggestions:
Sacrifice Outlets: Your deck is low on free sacrifice outlets. Carrion Feeder gets big fast, Viscera Seer is card advantage/selection, and Altar of Dementia is a great budget card, and can even be played in higher power games. I will go into deeper analysis below for Priest of Forgotten Gods.
Card Draw/Advantage/Selection: Another thing your deck needs is MORE card advantage. Get ready for a LONG list. Viscera Seer was mentioned above, Midnight Reaper and Dark Prophecy will draw you a heap of cards, and so will Grim Haruspex. Woe Strider is another Viscera Seer with a body. Priest of Forgotten Gods is a sac outlet, card draw, life drain and ramp in ONE CARD!
Dead Triggers: Last section! Just extra things that trigger when others die. Pawn of Ulamog should be an auto-include in all aristocrats decks. Syr Konrad, the Grim and Vindictive Vampire are all draining cards, and Ayara, First of Locthwain is drain, draw and sac.
I'll let you decide what you want to take out.
+3 from me. (Well, I'm told I can't do three, so 1 will have to do.)
(That took a long time to write, I hope you enjoy it! These were all budget cards, otherwise )

Blood Artist is a staple in anything where you want things to die. Theres also the payoff for soul sisters Serra Ascendant which is just generically good in commander. Free sac outlets are your best friend Viscera Seer and Carrion Feeder do the trick and provide decent value. You're gunna have a rough time finding removal more efficient than Path to Exile and Swords to Plowshares. Lastly, though it's a bit gimmicky and everyone has done it Sanguine Bond with Exquisite Blood is an easy way to end things if you're into that.

Not a bad start, I do have a few suggestions though. First, I'd work on lowering your avg. cmc to around 3.3. Second are actual card suggestions and I'll try to break it down by category. If nothing else, add Chaos Warp... it's Grixis' best answer to enchantments by FAR.

Hey, here's my less than $200 version of Krrik, Devotion to Yawgmoth (Budget).
My advice on a budget is load up on black tutors that can get Bolas's Citadel, Aetherflux Reservoir and Pontiff of Blight. Even four/five mana tutors are good since with Krrik they're only two/three mana and 4 life or only all life.
- Scheming Symmetry
- Diabolic Tutor
- Mastermind's Acquisition
- Dark Petition: tutor for Citadel and with Krrik in your control as well as spell mastery cast Citadel for 6 life.
- Beseech the Queen
Necropotence is a much better expensive price card than Exquisite Blood. Necro combos with Citadel + Aetherflux and this combo is excellent with Krrik. With Krrik Pontiff of Blight's extort does what Exquisite + Bond combo does and Pontiff is easier to assemble as well as budget.
Getting Krrik onto the battlefield with four mana is pretty important and more colorless mana sources can help especially two drop mana rocks.
Good luck with your deck.

Hey, nice semi budget version of Chainer.
I see Kiki and there's some cards to consider adding to make him better:
Ooze can use any activated ability of creatures in all graveyards which can be versatile in multiplayer Commander. With Chainer Ooze gives you lots of options: Magus, Necromancer, Feldon, Fulminator, Purphoros, Pet, Seer, etc, but best of all Kiki. Ooze can be another Kiki when Kiki is in your graveyard. When this happens with Ooze you can make infinite tapped Oozes since Ooze is not legendary therefore it can copy itself infinite times. Infinite Oozes can be used with other cards to be win conditions.
If Pet is in your graveyard then Ooze can sac itself to make one black mana. When this happens then infinite Oozes can make infinite black mana. Use infinite black mana to pay for a game winning Ribbons since you can discard or cast Cut and then cast Ribbons from your graveyard.
- Viscera Seer/Blood Pet + Syr Konrad, the Grim
- Viscera Seer/Blood Pet + Exsanguinate/Torment of Hailfire
Ooze can be Viscera Seer which with infinite Oozes can be infinite scrys to find the card you need or Syr/Exsanguinate as a win condition. With both Seer and Pet in your graveyard gives you many options with infinite Oozes to find and cast any card you want. Having creature sac outlets are good with Chainer because then you can cast a sac outlet from your graveyard and get more value from creatures who can't sac themselves. Goblin Bombardment, two drop sac outlet, is one of the best in Commander and it can be a win condition with infinite Oozes or infinite Conscripts without having to attack.
Other cards to consider adding:
- Sidisi, Undead Vizier or Rune-Scarred Demon
- Ravenous Chupacabra
- Graven Cairns, Tainted Peak, Ash Barrens, Jund Panorama
An expensive price card upgrade to consider is Sidisi, Undead Vizier as a repeatable tutor with Chainer and Sidisi can sac itself. With a sac outlet Rune-Scarred Demon can be a repeatable tutor, is less price and nice for reanimation getting a 6/6 Demon. Plaguecrafter is powerful repeatable effect with Chainer because it can sac itself. This card with Chainer can shut down your opponent's nontoken creature strategies.
Cards to consider cutting:
- Lantern-Lit Graveyard
- Bloodfell Caves
- Star Compass
- Grave Scrabbler
- Murderous Rider
- Ancient Craving
- Overseer of the Damned
Good luck with your deck.

I'd start by cutting the low-impact creatures such as:
I like your sac-outlets that can protect themselves through Shirei (e.g. Viscera Seer/Thoughtpicker Witch/Fume Spitter), and I'd try to avoid the ones that don't have that particular interaction: Nantuko Husk/Carrion Feeder.
Cards I would add in: Altar of Dementia, Plagued Rusalka, Dark Ritual, Feed the Swarm (enchantment removal in black), Agadeem's Awakening Flip, Kaervek, the Spiteful (allows you to protect Shirei), and Liliana's Steward.

Cool deck but might I suggest Carrion Feeder or Viscera Seer for a more reliable sac outlet and possibly Mortician Beetle or Bloodbriar for some more value. When I goldfished a few times I would draw into a morbid creature but have no way of triggering morbid.
I found that Putrid Leech is just not that good in most situations. Face value you have a 2 mana 2/2 that each turn can become a 4/4 for a price.
4x Festerhide Boar seems like a bit much seeing as its cmc 4. I would include it as a 3 of.
I also think that the 4x Ash Barrens is too much. Most of the time they will just slow you down. I would go to 2x ash barrens and replace them with a basic of each type.
