Also, many games I couldn't get to six or even five mana. No Ratcatcher, no Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni. You need more ramp. You can't abuse the untapping cards without more mana too. Get more ramp. Or throw in a land or two. Finally, I feel like you somehow need more rats--I know all the good ones are in. I felt like a lot of times I didn't have the rats to sacrifice for Marrow's ability.

Haha I'm glad to know I have a previous life twin Argeaux.
I came up with a list of potential commanders organized by the Multiplayer Tier List
Thada Adel, Acquisitor - Can steal artifacts which is nice (Sol ring!). Is mono blue so I have a lot of cards for it. Seems cool.
The Mimeoplasm - One of the first decks I tried to make but failed due to the mana base. I am willing to make this again with a cheaper (slower) mana base. Can be fun because he changes depending on who I am up against
Thassa, God of the Sea - The second deck I tried to make but failed because it sucked. I LOVE Thassa, but I feel there is no real direction for this deck and there is no chance in hell of it ever winning anything. Mono blue aggro anyone? lol
Xenagos, God of Revels - Ramp into fattiest and beat face. Simple linear strategy, has artifact enchantment and creature hate.
Gonti, Lord of Luxury - Seems fun because I can grab different stuff depending on who I'm up against. Mono black is also my favorite in EDH
Ashling, the Extinguisher - Again, I love mono black. Add some unblockable and possibly some equipments and watch hell unleash
Cao Cao, Lord of Wei - Mono black, what a surprise. Opponents love drawing, so we should make them discard! On the fence about this one because he's useless if the opponent has no cards in hand
Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni - I love the artwork and graveyard plunging seems fun!
Rosheen Meanderer - Green ramp with X red damage. Simple yet fun
Thoughts on this list?

Vampiric Rites Is OK for card draw. Especially if we're balls deep in tokens.Death Denied could be good if having too few cards in hand is an issue. Get the rats wiped, cast this, next turn throw out all those rats again with their low CMC.Swarmyard is super pricey, so it may be a "down the line" kind of card, but it's so flavorful and really damn handy. Especially with the enormous target Marrow-Gnawer is going to have on his face. Empty the Catacombs is similar to Death Denied except it helps your opponents too. Maybe throw a Bojuka Bog and hope the two shall meet.Soul Foundry looks like it could have a ton of potential. Who needs cards in hand when you can just keep producing some kind of super rat, maybe one with an ETB effect? Hell, if Marrow-Gnawer gets put down hard you could use the untap effects to untap Soul Foundry too.Lab Rats is fun and funny, but 5 mana for a 1/1 rat doesn't seem the best use of deck space, you know? If we're looking to trim that looks like one to go.
Stop me if this is blasphemous, but maybe if we're looking to trim, the really basic, 1/1 for 1 mana or 2/2 for 2 mana rats could go? I know it's fewer rats, but hopefully Marrow-Gnawer is picking up the slack on that. Though it is good to get some rats out early. But there could be other cheap rats that have effects on them that could take priority. Just a thought.
I also figured Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni was a no-brainer, considering you already have her and she kicks ass on like 3 levels (Rat, regenerates, steals from graveyards). I mean, she's her own Beacon of Unrest if she can hit, if only there were some way to give her Fear... cough Marrow-Gnawer cough
Maybe I'm ignorant, so stop me if I'm wrong, but I'm not enamored with Hecatomb 4 creatures is a lot, I know we'll have rat swarms, but every 4 rats can produce 4 more rats next turn if things are going as intended.
I'll give it some more eyeballing later, but my last thought is a lot of those untappers cost 3 mana a pop, I wonder if they could be replaced with an artifact tutor to just get the 1,000-year elixir and call it good? Though that, of course, means only 1 untap a turn.Again, I'll keep noodling it.
and NO FUCKING Black Cat

Instead of Deepfathom Skulker requiring you to run wastes, you should try Coastal Piracy or Bident of Thassa since you have Rogue's Passage for unblockable anyway. It's ability is neat, but you could just sub something else in for Dauthi Embrace.
Looks like a neat deck though! I like it.

I think Kari Zev is terrible. It's so bad, I think we should bring back Tier 6 just to put her in it. I am shocked and honestly offended that WotC would print a card this bad.

I don't think Drainpipe Vermin is a very good card; without a reliable way to sacrifice it, you're almost completely dependant on combat and your opponent to kill it and since it's just a 1/1 they really have no incentive to block it but trying to use it on defence requires you to hold up a mana on the opponent's turn and they can hold off on attacking until they have something they don't mind discarding. If you want to keep it, I would recommend including a couple of ninjitsu Rats so you can at least punish the opponent for not blocking it - Throat Slitter, Okiba-Gang Shinobi or Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni - which are also good with Typhoid Rats and Ravenous Rats.
Diabolic Tutor also seems kind of out of place here; unless you're assembling some kind of infinite combo, spending 4 mana to not impact the board at all nor generate any card advantage is not really a good use of your turn.
I've had good experiences with Nezumi Shortfang as a 1- or 2-of as a repeatable source of discard that turns into a The Rack when the opponent is hellbent. Lashwrithe is a powerful equipment in a mono- deck; it's a threat in and of itself and helps buff up your Rats to be able to compete with bigger creatures but isn't reliant on having a big board-presence like Coat of Arms is.
