First thing, your deck is in standard, but you're not playing standard legal cards. I assume you meant modern? You should change it.
your deck has some really expensive cards for an infect deck. Black gets access to a few proliferate cards.
Replace Spread the Sickness with 4x Grim Affliction. You put on the counter, then proliferate, killing anything with toughness 2 or less for 3 mana. The prolif effect is cheaper, and thus faster. Since you're playing mono-black, which doesn't have access to the same type of pump, you want more prolif. Also, if one of your infect creatures gets blocked, you can prolif the counters on what they blocked. I think 99% of the time it's a better card. Replace the Phyrexian Digester and the Guardians of Meletis with Core Prowler. It's another infect creature, and if it dies, then you get to prolif. Replace the Blackcleave Goblins with 2 more Ichor Rats, since they have a better etb trigger. Replace the Dark Favor and Deviant Glee with 4x Unholy Strength. 1 for 2 on 4 cards is better than one card being 2 for 3, and 3 cards at 1 for 2. Unholy Strength is also cheaper in dollar amounts.

I love the idea of mono black infect, but i think you might want the rest of the black infectors hahaVector Asp, Plague Stinger, Phyrexian Crusader, Plague Myr, Ichorclaw Myr, Blackcleave Goblin, Flensermite, Septic Rats, and Phyrexian Digester are all pretty sweet in the early game. Necropede is both an infector and removal
Virulent Wound is pretty great early removal and a free poison counter if the creature diesSpread the Sickness is a bit expensive, but proliferating is pretty damn goodRelic Putrescence is actually hilarious in commander, especially if you hit like their Sol Ring or something
but yeah, hope you continue with the noble path of infecting people

You seem to be trying to do too many things at once. I see you have some Zombie boosting cards, a couple you are missing would be Lord of the Undead, Paragon of Open Graves, and Zombie Master. Master doesn't boost but it does make all Zombies unblockable when combined with Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth or Blanket of Night. Adaptive Automaton is good too.
Phyrexian Dreadnought combos with Gisa. You can choose to not sacrifice any of your creatures when it enters the battlefield and in response to the sacrifice trigger, use Gisa's ability to sacrifice it. It gives you 24 power of Zombies. Remember, anything you kill, you AT LEAST double your overall power from that creature. A 2/2 Zombie gets you two 2/2, so you turn 2 Power into a nice 4 Power. That isn't factoring any boosting the sacrificed creature had and any the new Zombies will receive.
If you like Infect, Blackcleave Goblin, Hand of the Praetors, Scourge Servant, Toxic Nim. Glistening Oil is an Enchantment that will bounce back to your hand when the creature dies, really good on Tokens. If one of your creatures goes unblocked or they are unblockable, Tainted Strike can get you the kill.
I see you are running + , the only piece you are missing to make the infinite combo is Nim Deathmantle. What you do is cast Grave Titan, sacrifice one of the Zombie tokens to Ashnod's Altar, then sacrifice Grave Titan to the Altar. Use the you got from Ashnod's to activate the ability of Nim Deathmantle and return Grave Titan to the Battlefield. Repeat this process until infinite.
+ is an infinite kill combo for Mono Black.
I'm not sure what kind of budget you have but + is a good way to boost your mana as well. The Swamps are less than a Dollar each so you could replace every Basic Swamp with Snow-Covered for probably less than $20.
You know at this point I'm rambling. Mono Black is my favorite single color, Zombies are my favorite Tribe. The more I talk the more I'm just trying to turn your deck into mine.
P.S. Thornbite Staff goes infinite with Gisa. I love ZOMBIES!!
