Maybe put in some of the black spells that Drain Life from opponents so you always have more life than them that way your creatures are always getting bigger when they attack.

There are a lot of them. But combo is not a good archetype in pauper, because it usually requires way too much cards or colors, both of which have consistency issues with only common cards. Here are a few uncommon combos:

Most combos are the worst archetype, along with 4 and 5 color decks due to poor fixing. They both take too many cards, filtering and setup. If you are looking for the worst, a self-mill deck utilizing Drain Life, fueled by Songs of the Damned should be right up your alley.

Your deck seems a little low on card draw. You might want to consider adding] Read the Bones, Night's Whisper, Ambition's Cost, Reprocess and Damnable Pact (the latter can double as a life drain spell).
Also, in a deck with so many expendable creatures, Eliminate the Competition seems like an excellent removal spell.

IMMG54 It's a bit hard to explain.
What you are going to want to have in the end is two Mnemonic Wall to then Ghostly Flicker them both to generate infinite mana via Songs of the Damned with Blood Celebrant. With that set up you can either Gain infinite life via Gnaw to the Bone and cast every creature in your deck using Death Denied for a next turn lethal swing or go the easy route and just cast Drain Life for their life total.
Now I know that all seems like a lot but it can happen turn three or four, it can also be done with only one mana which is pretty cool, given you have the correct cards in hand. I can see it biggest downside being enchantment removal because Tortured Existence is the absolute key in this deck.

ShreddedByCrows I love your suggestions. I don't play a lot of creatures because I wanted a different deck than the whole creature based shenanigans.
Lich's Mastery works well with Bloodchief Ascension, Exquisite Blood, Consume Spirit, Soul Burn, Drain Life, Exsanguinate, and lastly, Maga, Traitor to Mortals. However, with that being sad, I believe I need Reliquary Tower.
