Filth is what I was looking for!!
Then there are Instants, a few have been mentioned. They can be combo'ed with Isochron Scepter for the effect each turn.

Mmm I kinda dig this guy, I think Thornbite Staff combos and zombies could work here. Going wide with zombie tokens isn't too difficult and with the staff include Phyrexian Altar and you've got your Ghoulcaller Gisa combo with unlimited ETB/LTB triggers via Gravecrawler. Zombie Trailblazer, Cover of Darkness and/or Filth/Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth is all the evasion you will need.
Infect would be cool too, just a little harder to pull off without more colors(green) imo.

I completely blanked on Volrath; I thought his ability was removal, not pump. That's what I get for not looking at the Commander before commenting.
In that case, keep Draco, and then consider the following:
Shizo, Death's Storehouse is a great way to get Volrath through against nonblack/nonartifact creatures. You can basically remove any land to include it.
Trailblazer's Boots is generally better than cards like Brawler's Plate- while it doesn't contribute a +2 power increase, it is almost half as much mana to play and attach while also having significantly better evasion (as even mono color decks in Commander run a bunch of nonbasic lands).
Key to the City is a new card worth looking into, as it wouldn't require any additional mana in order to make Volrath unblockable once it is out.
Filth and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth form an excellent little combination to make Volrath unblockable. You should be running Urborg, anyway, and Filth would be a strong inclusion over something like Greven-Il Vec whose only purpose is to be tossed to Volrath (when you toss Filth, you make Volrath unblockable against 1/5th of the colors of magic. That's worthwhile even if a little less powerful).
Artisan of Kozilek, It That Betrays and other Eldrazi would be perfect in this deck. You could easily remove illegal cards like Infernal Spawn of Evil for Artisan, who actually works better in the deck as a whole. Pestilence Demon is better than a lot of your creatures on the higher end, as well, and Reiver Demon would be your new best friend.

You're telling me you've got a dirty, nasty, germ-ridden rat deck that isn't running Filth?

There are a lot of key pieces that you are missing. I can give a few suggestions from the top of my head that might get you started in the right direction.
Boros Charm can protect you stuff on your combo turn.
Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord wincon
There are a million ways to go infinite with Ghave. It's harder to not go infinite.
Some cards that are probably underperforming and you might want to cut for these:
Slice in Twain I'm sure there are better options.
Greed is good. Just ask Gordon Gecko. But you have better card draw options available. Just see above.
Thought Vessel This card is a trap card in all but very specific decks. 7 cards are normally enough to win.
Jar of Eyeballs Really fun and flavorful but lacks in power.
Gaea's Blessing you're not really running selfmill or reanimate effects. Unless there is a lot of mill or graveyard hate in your meta.
Welp, this turned out a lot longer than I expected. Hope it helps!

Veilborn Ghoul (great with Necromancer's Stockpile among other things), Undead Gladiator, and Lord of the Undead with Gempalm Polluter can eat a LOT of players alive if you can't get the swarm through for whatever reason. Vengeful Dead can make boardwipes a suicidal proposition....Corpse Harvester is another often overlooked/underestimated card for Zombie Tribal Decks...granted he's a 5 drop, but fetching the right zombie for the job at hand, not missing midgame land drops, deck thinning all in one shot for the cost of 2 mana and a zombie token ? Grave Betrayal is pretty funny with Call to the Grave, Necromantic Selection and In Garruk's Wake kind of stuff.
Other thoughts....not a huge fan of Sanguine Bond + Exquisite Blood combo shenanigans or any infinite combo for that matter... but aside from each other theirs no way to go off on this....and sanguine is a completely dead card on it's own....this really should just stay in Orzhov decks...preferably ones that are nowhere near me :)
Raise Dead - underwhelming lots of zombies already do this...
Plea for Power - 4 mana for 3 cards...not bad but not great either, and only crazy ppl will give you a timewalk.
Split Decision - equally as janky as it is unreliable utility/control spell.
these 3 could all be better control spells or draw then discard spells like Frantic Search, Breakthrough, Read the Runes, Careful Study or something. If you wanted to get really dirty; a few more of these type cards along with Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Filth is pretty sick.
Possessed Skaab - almost always gonna self-exile...low value for 5 drop.
Necromaster Dragon - cool foil goodstuff card, has flying which most of your deck doesn't....has a little extra value...but still underwhelming...Wonder would be a much better choice for this slot imo.
...my thoughts atm....hope some of this helps....hf & gl
