Not Tomer, but I'm watching the stream! In a multiplayer format, focusing on abilities that hit multiple opponents will serve you much better than single shot effects like Bloodhusk Ritualist.

Along with Bottomless Pit, Creeping Dread and Necrogen Mists trigger over and over again. Cunning Lethemancer is the creature version.

Earsplitting Rats, Miasmic Mummy, Rotting Rats, & Sibsig Icebreakers are more good ETB creatures. Since you're also running Merchant, a Conjurer's Closet can get you a lot of value. Stronghold Rats is nice consistent discard with damage. With your Commander, all this discard is not a hindrance at all to you.

You may also want to add some cheaper wrath effects like Mutilate or Languish. It wont take long for people to want to gang up on you!

I did a bunch of playtesting. I think you should take Earsplitting Rats out. The self-discard is so painful.

So kind of as a general rule, if you're playing a card solely because it's a Rat and nothing else, you should just cut it and replace it with another Relentless Rats. Stuff like Bog Rats, Chittering Rats, Earsplitting Rats, Scrib Nibblers, Stronghold Rats, and Typhoid Rats. The Misers should also be cut because any deck that wants a constant hand size of at least 7 cards plays enough effects to give them no maximum hand size. You don't need to be playing Gravepurge, it's not like you're dredging your entire deck. Some enchantment based draw engine would be good; Phyrexian Arena, Necropotence, Underworld Connections, etc. I'm a fan of playing Bubbling Muck in any monoblack deck for explosive turns. You should be playing Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth to make Cabal Coffers a bit better. You may want Illusionist's Bracers to double up Marrow-Gnaw'er activations.

I have mulled over this for a while and I really cannot see how Abundance + Undercity Informer mill your whole library the way Dakmor Salvage + The Gitrog Monster + a discard outlet do. Could you walk me through it?

The list I am am working on only has the Gitrog + Dakmor + Discard outlet way to mill yourself but

Even with only one combo, there is enough redundancy here that I don't think you need more.

Also worth mentioning: comboing off with Skirge Familiar does not truly give you infinite mana if you don't want to play an Ulamog, the Infinite Gyro (but I dislike that plan since then you can only play three discard outlets to go infinite in some measure - Wild Mongrel, Volrath's Dungeon and the familiar itself). You get realistically 40-50, sometimes less if you start dredging 6 over and over to find Dakmor Salvage. That's low enough where relying on Exsanguinate for the kill might be unwise - somebody at the table is playing Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim and suddenly you can't kill them? It's an issue.

Then again, my solution of Dread Defiler throwing a Lord of Extinction at them suffers from the same problem.

Maybe one could use a "Four Horsemen" approach i.e. we play the Ulamog, the Infinite Gyro and rely on the extra draws from Dakmor Salvage to eventually draw it and proceed to put the whole deck in the graveyard a few hundreds dredges in instead of a few dozens? That might be the way to go if we want to have the option to cast large Exsanguinates occasionally.
