Whenever an opponent loses life, that player puts that many cards from the top of his or her library into his or her graveyard. (Damage dealt by sources without infect causes loss of life.)

Wrexial is an awesome starter commander :D
maybe consider building around this Kraken monstrosity, when you deal combat damage you can cast any instant or sorcery from that opponents graveyard for free, so a good move might be to play a mill style deck
I see you already have Consuming Aberration and Szadek, Lord of Secrets which really have great synergy with Wrexial. you are stocking up your opponents graveyard so you can start flinging their own spells against them, and or other opponents at the table!
Ill leave a few suggestions and feel free to take em or leave em :D just here to help

I don't see why Mindcrank and a few other cards are in there if you aren't planning on milling people down, from your description it seems like thats not what you're going for, if you are, Traumatize. But I'd recommend sticking with lifedrain and good old fashion beating people over the head with lots of zombies. Phenax, God of Deception is cool, but don't try to do that and lifedrain zombies.
Look at Dralnu, Lich Lord because its amazing, same goes for Semblance Anvil, Possessed Skaab, Call to the Kindred, Ever After and Lim-Dul's Vault is broken. Obelisk of Urd is a tribal deck's best friend.
There are better wipes for this deck than Coastal Breach and you are a bit low on removal. Malicious Affliction and Dash Hopes are very good and fun. Get rid of Imprisoned in the Moon. Another thing you can do for removal is use Fleshbag Marauder, have it sac itself, then cast it from the graveyard. Stronghold Assassin too. Cauldron of Souls Can help you dodge board wipes and is a cool card to have. Perplex is fun too. And Mimic Vat
Arcane Adaptation is neat but there are much better cards that you can use. Black Market isn't as good as it seems because your mana empties before you can use it for anything good most of the time. Empty the Pits is very expensive, but if you can make it work, do it.
Your nonbasic lands are also really slow and you may need more lands in general, 36ish is about where you want to be. Look at Choked Estuary and Command Tower or cards that lower costs like Jet Medallion.
I know I've suggested to add a lot more cards than I suggested to take out, and I've never really even tried to give deck advice before, but I hope I at least gave you some ideas.

Painful Quandary is perfect for your next tutor after destroying your opponents hands. Some cards you might want to add. Banshee of the Dread Choir, Scythe Specter and a nice combo plus fits the theme here is Bloodchief Ascension + Mindcrank one damage to any opponent will kill then or mill them and gain you lots of life. If you want protection from creatures? If your hand is empty like everyone else's hands? then Ensnaring Bridge works great here. Other good protection is Dread.
I see you have Magus of the Coffers! With only 6 swamps you can make infinite mana. Just add Sword of the Paruns and or Umbral Mantle one of these on your Magus of the Coffers and 6 swamps is infinite black mana

Concise list of considerations:
The Rack single target is really crappy in EDH
Wheel of Torture Same effect as The Rack except it hits everyone.
Skullcage Hits all opponents who don't have either 3 or 4 cards in hand.
Raiders' Wake Another Caress/Megrim effect, except this one makes your opponent discard if you attack.
Quest for the Nihil Stone Anyone without a hand gets domed for 5 during their upkeep...seems good.
Bloodchief Ascension Self Explanatory card
Mindcrank This is a great card in a discard centric deck.
Get rid of all of these cards Bog Rats, Carrion Rats, Deathmask Nezumi (it's a nombo with everything you're doing), Drainpipe Vermin, Gutter Skulk, Nezumi Cutthroat, Pestilence Rats, Ravenous Rats, Swarm of Rats, and Typhoid Rats.
Relentless Rats Replace all of the cards removed with these. You are not restricted to a single copy, per EDH rules, because Relentless Rats specifically states that card limitation requirements do not apply to it.
Get rid of anything that is single target discard! Especially Raven's Crime, since you don't have enough lands that you can afford to be ditching them for a single discard.
Add more things that hit everybody, such as Necrogen Mists or are renewable.
Specter's Shroud Might be worth looking into.
You need more board wipes. You have one 9 CMC board wipe with only 32 lands in the deck. The Hyper-geometric distribution doesn't give you very good odds of pulling the lands you need in order to keep the board clear. Consider Bontu's Last Reckoning, Yahenni's Expertise, Crux of Fate (which may work to your favor with all the Dargon decks running around), Damnation is a given but it's pricey, Life's Finale, Kindred Dominance, and Necromantic Selection are all decent options.
Liliana of the Dark Realms is a much better Lili for a deck like this because you need ramp and that Ult is ridiculous plus it combos with...
Let's talk about your mana base for a second...
Thirty two lands? Even for a very cavalier spell slinger deck, that is a very low amount to play. I play a Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest deck on 36 and struggle some times to reach a critical mass of mana/spells. Don't fall into the trap of "I'll cut a land for this cheap spell; it'll be fine." Again, math and probability will not be on your side in the late game, not unless you're willing to invest in Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx or Cabal Coffers. An alternative might be to run Crypt of Agadeem but it's really no substitute for those lands.
Lastly, jam a Bojuka Bog or a Scavenger Grounds or both in there for graveyard hate, along with your choice of Strip Mine, Ghost Quarter, and/or Field of Ruin because if you can't have your Crypt or Coffers, why should they?
Hope this helps, good luck!
