Glistening Oil Discussion

Oh yeah, Sun Titan + Gift of Immortality or Fiend Hunter would = infinite counters for your commander. Also Debtors' Knell would work great with Academy Rector or if your feeling very uncharitable you could add Glistening Oil .

You really want to pump up Judith's ping ability? How about some poison? Grafted Exoskeleton , Glistening Oil , and Phyresis will make judith a scary lady. you can cast Tainted Strike in response to a board wipe to more than likely kill a player.
On the subject of getting more out of your creatures, try some of the undying or persisting creatures. Geralf's Messenger , Pyreheart Wolf , Flayer of the Hatebound , and Mikaeus, the Unhallowed will come back stronger. the other side of that, Murderous Redcap , Furystoke Giant , Puppeteer Clique , Thunderblust , and Rattleblaze Scarecrow all come back weaker, but come back for free, which is nice.
Other than that, I agree with a lot of what multimedia suggests.

LVL_666, DEFINITELY better mana and creature base. Although, in response to your identity crisis comment-literally the EXACT same thing is happening to my atraxa-infect deck. It pulls so much aggro it's absurd. I pull the deck out and before I even play anything I am the target. Unfortunately, I have been leaning towards going back to +1/+1 counters and superfriends/planeswalkers because then at least I got to play haha. Maybe keep in a few cards with infect such as Blightsteel Colossus, Tainted Strike, Phyresis, Corrupted Conscience, Glistening Oil and maybe Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon, Caress of Phyrexia, Blighted Agent, and/or Phyrexian Swarmlord just for those instant infect kills. I play against a sliver deck and he kills people with poison more than i do. Sadly Atraxa-infect is not competitive enough and is hated way to much to be fun :(. Here's my deck Atraxive Infection, in case there are any cards in there you may be interested including that you haven't; but like I said... I think I am going to go a different direction so I can actually play her and have fun again. Let me know what you think!

One of my favorite cards in my Shattergang Brothers deck (or pretty much any deck really) is Feldon of the Third Path. It's a great way to recur value creatures, and even turns them into artifacts to give you more options sacrificing them to your commander.
I'm not sold on Undying Rage being the third-best recurring enchantment in this deck. Normally I wouldn't be a huge fan of Rancor either, but you have such a high density of heavy hitters that I think it's worth it. In place of Unstoppable Rage, I think either Fallen Ideal or Glistening Oil would be better. Glistening Oil would help your beaters kill at a much smaller size, while Fallen Ideal would be nice as a free sacrifice outlet to make sure creatures you want to recur make it to the graveyard.
One card that would fit really well in your build would be Pitiless Plunderer. It generates mana so you can activate Shattergang Brothers multiple times in a turn, and generates artifact tokens to serve as fodder for his ability.
Finally, another of my favorite cards for Shattergang is Deathbringer Thoctar. It lets you ping off 1-toughness creatures for free to make Shattergang's sacrifice triggers more impactful, and grows out of control really quickly as creatures die.

To keep your theme I've suggested some improvements
Faerie Harbinger - Tutor for the fary you need
Inspired Sprite - Extra Card draw
Mistbind Clique - Basically a one turn time warp - more if you can bounce with effects like Glen Elendra Pranksters
Nightshade Schemers - Since most of your deck is Faerie
Scion of Oona - Faerie lord - the shroud could be beneficial too
Spellstutter Sprite - Counter spell - more if you can bounce with effects like Glen Elendra Pranksters
Sprite Noble - Weaker "Faerie" Lord - most likely to cut
Hypnotic Siren - on theme version of Spirit away but not dead in hand early game
Siren Stormtamer - counter spell
Midnight Banshee - might hurt with all the blue you play but strong against many decks
I would Remove Macabre Waltz, Fill with Fright, Send to Sleep, Wings of Velis Vel, Fear, Phyresis with Glistening Oil (repeatable infect + used as removal in pinch), Psychic Surgery, Sleep Paralysis, Waterknot (your in black use actual removal), Faerie Invaders, Oona's Gatewarden (sorry I know oona's the general but its a weak card) and Dauthi Embrace (I know you said its a win con but most of your creatures are evasive on their own)

Glistening Oil would be utterly brutal in this deck. Getting Haunt up to 5 power for a two swing kill is trivial, where as getting him to 10 for a one hit kill is almost as easy. Bonus points for putting in Dauthi Embrace to give your pumped up Infect Commander some Shadow goodness. Throw in Demonic Tutor Vampiric Tutor and Infernal Tutor and you're ready to fetch what you need when you need it.

goldlion: Honestly, the most likely cuts for Cryptolith Rite, Driven / Despair, and Glistening Oil are Necroskitter, Midnight Banshee, and Exotic Orchard. But that drives my creature count even lower, making Survival of the Fittest a less and less good card... It’s hard to balance things.
