Some are better then others but all will give you an idea of the kind of options there are.

Crazy that onone mention Jet Medallion yet. I mean you want to chain your reomovel with Umezawa.

If you need help with knowing how much/what ramp to use, you might want to check out https://www.mtggoldfish.com/articles/brewer-s-minute-ramp-math
I am not an expert in mono, but for you I recommend adding:
Myriad Landscape can go in almost any edh deck
Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is solid in any one- or two-colour deck
Lake of the Dead has a downside, but you won't care when you're using it (trust me)
Petrified Field to protect valuable lands.
I'm not sure how I feel about Temple of the False God , but it is an EDH classic.
Other mono ramp
I ended up finding so many mono ramp cards I thought I might as well make a more full list.
Solemn Simulacrum is a good catch-all
Nirkana Revenant is good in the right deck
Bog Witch is kind of weird, but has fringe uses
I haven't thought hard, but you might be able to do some flicker shenanigans with Priest of Gix
Worst case, an edh deck can always load up on rocks. These are some of the best ones for mono black
Sol Ring every edh deck should include this
Pillar of Origins for tribal decks
In most games, these do the same thing: Commander's Sphere , Cryptolith Fragment Flip, Cultivator's Caravan , Darksteel Ingot , Hierophant's Chalice , Honor-Worn Shaku , Mana Prism , Manalith , Orazca Relic , Phyrexian Totem , Powerstone Shard , Pristine Talisman , Seer's Lantern , Serum Powder , Skull of Ramos , Sol Grail , Spectral Searchlight , Vessel of Endless Rest , Victory Chimes , and Chromatic Lantern
Thought Vessel if you fill your hand
Chrome Mox is usually worth the card disadvantage
Mox Amber if you usually have your commander/a legendary thing out
Mox Diamond if lands in your graveyard is a good thing
Mox Opal if you have 2+ extra artifacts
Black Market is good if you tend to sacrifice/kill a lot of creatures
Liliana of the Dark Realms is nice with proliferate, and makes sure you don't miss land drops in the mid/late-game
Sword of the Animist is best with one-mana creatures, and if you attack often, but might be justified even if not
Carnival of Souls is fun with some creature-based combos
Crypt of Agadeem works, but only if you consistently have 4+ creatures in the graveyard
Phyrexian Tower eats your creatures
Cabal Coffers is a staple
Cabal Stronghold is great if you can't afford many nonbasics, and might be good enough besides.

i would also remove Deadeye Tracker , Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder , Krav, the Unredeemed , Ophiomancer , Bontu's Monument , Charcoal Diamond , Jet Medallion , and Crypt of Agadeem . i suggested the last 4 because if you replace them with Gauntlet of Power,Black Market, and Caged Sun you have much more mana to play with. i would suggest using tokens to get your commander to go off instead of bigger creatures and use creatures with "enter the battlefield" effects to sack if you do (I'm pretty sure that is how you have it build already though so I'm giving dumb advice). all in all i love the deck just need more tokens and more mana. hope this helps!

Your land count is pretty low compared to your average CMC. I suggest no less than 37 for non-competitive lists. Also, I would run some more rocks. Jet Medallion Charcoal Diamond Fellwar Stone for starters. Unstable Obelisk for the upside of getting rid of permanents that Black has trouble with.

Hey, can't get much better than Rats and Angels :) Consider more Rat Colony? 20 seems good, haha.
Cards to consider adding:
- Mogis's Marauder : there will be lots of black devotion with Rats, this guy can give all your Rats haste and you choose which ones get haste. Win from out of nowhere.
- Crypt Ghast : pretty much a staple when playing so many Swamps. Extort is some extra opponent life lose and life gain for you when casting Rats.
- Thrumming Stone : expensive price card, ripple 4 is amazing with Rat Colony.
- Living Death and Patriarch's Bidding : reanimate all Rats.
- Mikaeus, the Unhallowed : anthem and give all Rats undying. When you sac a Rat it's reanimated.
- Basilisk Collar : equip to Crypt Rats, kill all your opponents and not yourself.
- Dark Prophecy : draw when you sac Rats, works with tokens.
- Jet Medallion : make all Rat Colony only cost one mana.
- Diabolic Intent
- Insidious Dreams : discard your hand to tutor for and setup the top of your library with all Rat Colony.
