I would suggest the following. If you like playtesting: Flammendes Schwert 6

This looks like a lot of fun, great to see these blasts from the past get used! One card that you might consider for ramp is Thran Turbine, could give you a free cycle each turn. As for lower CMC creatures, some that I think could be useful are Cryptbreaker, Stoic Champion, Ruthless Sniper, Cho-Arrim Alchemist, Pack Rat, Skirk Ridge Exhumer, Undertaker, and Devout Witness, since they get a different kind of value out of discards than cycling. Similarly, Key to the City and Smuggler's Copter can allow you to use discards for different kinds of value.
As far as other cards related to cycling go, did you consider Ash Barrens, Gilded Light, Stir the Sands, Unearth, Radiant's Judgment, Street Wraith, Viscera Dragger, and Pitiless Vizier? I'm not sure if those fit in perfectly, but they might be worth considering.
If you wanted to make all players discard but have you benefit more from it, you might consider cards like Oppression and Necrogen Mists. I also think Library of Leng is worth looking at, but it might not fit your strategy.
Do you think getting Hellbent is something you are looking to do with this deck? If the former, maybe something like Gibbering Descent, Asylum Visitor, Dark Suspicions, Grim Strider, or Hollowborn Barghest could be interesting. In either case, some card draw like Phyrexian Arena could be very useful.
Also, watch out for Stabilizer!

So with Amonkhet's revival of the Cycling mechanic, along with cards that reward discarding and madness all in standard right now I feel like there's the making of good deck based around discarding, benefiting from cycling/discarding, and then maybe using madness to play what you just discarded.
I'm looking for input on how to make this work (or if it would really work). From what I can tell, the colors that work best for what I have planned are Blue/Black.
The stars of this deck that started getting me thinking were:
Cards that I'm thinking should definitely be in deck:
The problem I'm having here is there seems to be so many cards that COULD go well with the theme, but I'm not sure if they are actually good or are trap picks, so I was hoping for other card suggestions, as well as the amount that would be wise to run in the deck.

In a deck with Lingering Souls and Pack Rat I would prefer to play Sorin, Solemn Visitor over Elspeth, Knight-Errant. Also, Squadron Hawk is a nice source of card advantage to fuel more Rats and maybe Collective Brutality as well. Asylum Visitor could work too, since it has Madness, you can pitch it to either Pack Rat or Collective Brutality and still be able to cast it.

Doesn't look too bad as it is.
-3 Go for the Throat and -1 Dismember in exchange for 4x Fatal Push. It's excellent removal and at only 1 mana there is very little reason to not run it as a full playset. Go for the Throat is completely blanked in some matches like Infect and Affinity. Dismember is good but the majority of the time Fatal Push can do the same thing while saving you 4 life. Gurmag Angler does exist though so it's good to keep single copies of additional removal.
I would cut 2x Phyrexian Arena. It's a great card but it's very hard to find time to cast it. I would rather have 2x Bile Blight MB. It's just more useful in more matches. Great anti-Lingering Souls tech.

@ ghoul_Legion you misunderstood my comment. I think your deck is a mono black version of Dead Bitter Ale. so your deck is nothing new.. I made a deck to play against (though it is legacy) so you can playtest and see what you can make better. My deck is something you would find nowhere else, because I made it from the ground.. and that is why I posted it here.
My suggestions for your deck:
I think 4 cards of a same kind is not good.

Consistency is king and sadly you have a lot of 1x and not many 4x, I'm sure you can guess my first suggestion is run more 4x of cards, you also seem to have some vampire synergy so...
You probably want 4x Asylum Visitor to replace the Blood Scrivener's since it's a vamp. I'd also suggest, 2-3x of Indulgent Aristocrat as sacrifice outlet that pumps your other vampires. However creatures weren't really the issue here.
Your spells, 16 sorcery and instants all of them singles, it just isn't a good idea. 16 is a nice number though being 4x4, so my suggestion is; 4x Duress, 4x Geth's Verdict and 4x Flaying Tendrils (ok, 3x use your 1x Damnation), finally I'm going to break from that suggestion as I assume you only have 1 of some of these cards so; 1x Inquisition of Kozilek 1x Thoughtseize 1x Consuming Vapors and 1x Fatal Push this means you have a more focused removal and discard package. If you have them I'd run 2x Inquisition of Kozilek and 2x Fatal Push but it depends on your card pool.
