Malicious Affliction Discussion

A few things :)
2) No Toxic Deluge?? It's (IMO) one of the strongest black cards ever printed.
6) Your curve is relatively high, and I'm not really a fan of Manalith and other 3-mana rocks. I'd focus more on cheaper rocks such as Mana Crypt and Mana Vault to accelerate Chainer, as well as Jet Medallion to make your spells cheaper.
This is my mono-black deck, if you feel like taking a look for anything you might add that I've forgotten:

SynergyBuild, thanks for the thoughtful recommendations! There's no denying that the Triskelion and Mikaeus, the Unhallowed combo is useful, and would fit nicely into this deck, but I already have it in another one of my more competitive decks. I wanted this one to be pretty casual for the most part, which is also why I avoided putting too many tutoring cards in there.
As for the 0-drops such as Memnite, Shield Sphere, Ornithopter, etc.: I'd rather focus on creatures that can generate tokens like Abhorrent Overlord, Sifter of Skulls, and Sengir Autocrat for the sac bait. Since CMC isn't an issue for Whisper, Blood Liturgist's ability, there'd be no point to include the 0-drops that would only be worth a single sacrifice, and not necessarily be worth bringing back with Whisper, Blood Liturgist to sacrifice again.
I do think that most of the cards you suggested be cut still have pretty valid reasons to be present in the deck. Most of those cards are either for spot removal Malicious Affliction, control Grave Pact, ETB/upon death triggers Kokusho, the Evening Star, discard effects Call the Bloodline, or token generation Noosegraf Mob. I mean, sure, Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger doesn't really fit in the deck, but I couldn't pass up the opportunity to potentially cheat out an Eldrazi titan on like, turn 4.
I could probably drop Ancient Craving for one of the more efficient cards like Night's Whisper though. I really like Corpse Connoisseur too. Diabolic Intent fits the theme of the deck, so I might swap that in for one of the other tutoring cards. Withering Boon seems pretty great too. Counterspells in black are hilarious, and often unexpected. Toxic Deluge could very well end up replacing Damnation, because you're right, it is pretty good. Just not sure if paying that much life is always worth the effect.
Thanks again for all the great suggestions! I've definitely still got some work to do on this deck.

The main cards to add for this effect would be:
Triskelion and Mikaeus, the Unhallowed for the most straightforward combo, and the Buried Alive you have to put them in, preferably with Rune-Scarred Demon. You recur the Demon fetching Vindicate, then bring the Mikaeus/Triskelion Combo out by sacing the Demon. This means Buried Alive can win the game with the commander as a one card combo. Phantasmagorian can be used if you end up with any number of the combo pieces in hand.
Other cards to add include Imperial Seal, Grim Tutor, Diabolic Intent, Culling the Weak, Dimir Machinations, Corpse Connoisseur, Mana Crypt, Mana Vault, Memnite, Shield Sphere, Ornithopter, Grim Monolith, Phyrexian Walker, Chrome Mox, Lotus Petal, Defense Grid, Dark Confidant, etc.
Cards you can drop:

Illusionist's Bracers would greatly help out your commander's ability. Also, consider Training Grounds. You could also seriously use a Sol Ring and probably a Thran Dynamo to help accelerate your ability to use Oona. You also might want to consider Notorious Throng and Stinkdrinker Bandit to take advantage of the fact that you are creating a bunch of flying faerie rogues which are presumably attacking, especially the latter.
I'm not sure whether Wydwen, the Biting Gale is quite worth it in your deck, unless I'm missing something, so I'd consider dropping it.

Intruder Alarm could combo off or just give you lots of wizard tapping whenever your wizards and tokens enter the battlefield.
Panharmonicon gets more value out of your wizards and lets you make more copies. Cloudstone Curio and Ghostly Flicker lets you reuse your wizards. You could draw a lot of cards by sacrificing copied tokens to Morbid Curiosity.
Timestream Navigator can gain you two extra turns for an initial 7 mana investment.
Stonybrook Banneret helps your costs.
Magus of the Mind probably won't net you much value unless you have opponents playing storm decks.
Lunar Mystic isn't very efficient for drawing cards. You would probably draw more with Kindred Discovery.
Venser's Journal doesn't help you that much for the mana cost.
Body Double, Memory Plunder, and Spelltwine depend too much on what's in graveyards. Reins of Power is also too situational.
Mass bounce effects should work well with this deck since you can tap your wizards for effects before bouncing, and then recast them for more tokens and effects. Devastation Tide, Coastal Breach, Wash Out, Inundate are some good ones.
Once you have enough good spells, Kess, Dissident Mage is worth adding back.
Fireball is inefficient as wincon/removal compared to Comet Storm or Exsanguinate. You could try Magus of the Coffers for extra mana if you want to go down that route. Dualcaster Mage could copy your own or other players' game-winning spells.

Depending on your Meta, don't use some of these spells (like spot removal that says "nonblack," if a ton of people play black itd be stupid to play it)

Opal Palace is good for this commander
You need more player interaction too, it seems like you're playing singleplayer EDH. You need to get more targeted removal. Doom Blade, Go for the Throat, Malicious Affliction, Bone Splinters, Putrefy and Anguished Unmaking are all good, but there are probably a few in green and white that I missed. Run Abzan Charm
Read the Bones is an amazing draw card.
Cryptolith Rite is really good when you have a lot of creatures.
Trostani, Selesnya's Voice will win games
Also, look at cards that give you life when creatures enter the battlefield, like Healer of the Pride.
