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.

:). Now lets move to the next card im sceptic about.. Deviant Glee. Removing the creature targeted by Deviant Glee as a response to it being cast is what is called a 2-for-1 (dont know how new you are, but you should be familiar with this term unless you are new new). I think even Lightning Strike would be better as its easier to resolve and Deviant Glee takes another turn, a creature and for that creature to survive to get more profit. Altho, i would not recommend Lightning Strike in modern. How about Bump in the Night or Lava Spike (or both?).

Whip of Erebos also seems like it would fit in quite well into this deck.

Thanks ToolmasterOfBrainerd!! I greatly appreciate your feedback.
The only pairing I've done with discard is Tormenting Voice and Fiery Temper. But even then, if I don't have Fiery Temper in my hand when I want to cast Tormenting Voice it can be a pain, so I avoided that route here.
The only creature with a cmc at 3 or above that I would like to keep is Lifebane Zombie. I've found that even though he's only a 3/1, having Intimidate out the gate has helped in some matchups. Once I'm able to get Brute Force or Deviant Glee out, he get's pumped. I have to agree with you as well, I've found that Bloodsoaked Champion is like a SLUG, and rarely play him. I'll definitely mess around with taking out the others and adding in some of the ones you suggested.
I never knew about Bump in the Night, that seems like a really good fit here, as well as Lava Spike (don't know why I didn't think of that). The only time I've had success with Virulent Swipe is after blockers have been declared and I want to get rid of a creature. That's about it though lol.
Thanks again for all your help!! I'll be playing around with it and see what comes out!!

this list looks fun, but i think 18 lands might be cutting it short. ideally you'd want +2 Bloodstained Mires and +4 Blood Crypt, but considering you want to keep the budget (dont know what kind of budget you have) i think something like this:
-4 Deviant Glee
+2 Blood Crypt
+2 Ash Zealot
i'll explain these choices.
Lightning Mauler is great but the only creature you have that doesnt come built in with haste is Master of the Feast. i can totally understand wanting to give him haste, but i dont think that warrants the whole slot for the mauler.
Deviant Glee is a swell card. doesnt really fit in here. it's begging you to get 2-for-1'ed. that's pretty much it.
Master of the Feast is cool, but here with the unlikely pairing of lightning mauler, it basically sits there and gives your opponent a card before they blast him with removal.
you could probably upgrade to have 2 Blood Crypts. right now they are around $8. they will probably only go up, unless reprinted.
Ash Zealot is a fine body and punishes opponents for lingering souls and snapcaster type stuff. hastey.
Hellspark Elemental is a neat little guy who is basically a once repeatable lightning bolt. i think he fits.
definitely put those Kolaghan's Commands in here, bruh.
