Crypt Ghast would give you some ramp

Hollowborn Barghest isn't a rat, but the ability is quite good with your game plan.

Rackling same with this guy, another Rack but tied to a non-rat creature

Gibbering Descent, Bottomless Pit, Creeping Dread, and Necrogen Mists each give you reliable discard every turn

Oppression, painful quandry, and Geth's Grimoire give you more rewards when someone discards

Syphon Mind, Dark Deal, Smallpox, and Myojin of Night's Reach are all some good discard cards you're missing

Phyrexian Reclamation can let you re-play annoying creatures once people remove them, as well as provide draw for when you're top decking

Gray Merchant of Asphodel is a super solid black finisher and can keep you in the game a lot longer

Geier Reach Sanitarium gives you a discard trigger for everyone, and draws everyone another card which you can make them discard again

Attrition lets you use those rat tokens for repeatable removal

These are the cards that are probably under performing in your deck: Bone Splinters, Coercion, Death Stroke, Duress, Kaervek's Hex, Ostracize, Waking Nightmare, Ichor Rats, Typhoid Rats, Simulacrum, Subversion, Ordeal of Erebos,

I like Bump in the Night over Ordeal of Erebos. Even though it is slightly out of flavor as Innistrad rotated with the release of Theros. Bump in the Night might smooth out the curve and give you more to do early on besides dumping a turn 1 Rakdos Guildgate lol.

So, I have a few ideas we could hash out for this deck, and I included a bunch of cards that I'll just give you, as well as a few cards you should pick up and plan to use, regardless. We can sit down and actually hash this out together if you'd like, or you can wing it and develop something on your own. Either way, I'm stoked you're getting so into this!

You have a really steep mana curve going on here, and I worry that you'll have openings hands flooded with CMC 5+ cards and you won't be able to act.

Replace Cranial Extraction with Surgical Extraction or Extirpate. The extra 3 mana isn't needed to get the job done.

Abyssal Nocturnus, Farbog Revenant, and Highborn Ghoul are all examples of low-CMC creatures that are quite good. Consider dropping some of your CMC 5+ creatures for them.

Other cards to consider are Ordeal of Erebos, Hymn to Tourach, and maybe even Waste Not.

I tinkered with this a bit- I play in more comptetitive meta, and there is some pretty interesting stuff that could be done to make this work, but most would leave it barely recognisable. A 1/2/3 cost Elves of Deep Shadow/Tukatongue Thallid/Blood Funnel/Nighthowler/Strength from the Fallen/Blisterpod/Renowned Weaver/Rancor type thing might work, as might a more focused Ethereal Armor/heroic setup or Ordeal of Erebos/Oblivion Crown/Ravenous Rats/Delirium Skeins beatdown/discard setup.Bad Moon/Helm of the Gods enchantment black might be playable.Spike Jester/Mardu Scout/Hellspark Elemental can make a fun budget rakdos core and deal a surprising amount of damage.The main thing to remember is to test to see if it behaves the way you think it should when facing other decks so that it continues to perform well.

in terms of land Terramorphic Expanse/Evolving Wilds is a fix for three colour thats pretty cheap, or keep the splashes lategame then run Unknown Shores/Aether Hub/Crumbling Vestige/Shimmering Grotto as appropriate to provide for some more versatile lategame. Mono black is super playable (probs my favourite thing at the moment, and I made this Mono black deckbuilder's toolbox to help people find cards for their decks. GLHF!

Fireshrieker, Sanguinary Mage, Midnight Scavengers, Akroan Jailer, Subterranean Scout, Tuktuk the Explorer, Xenagos, God of Revels, Satyr Firedancer, Xenagos, the Reveler, Ordeal of Erebos, Burn at the Stake, Somberwald Vigilante, Midnight Guard, Flayer of the Hatebound, Lost in the Woods, Thraben Sentry  Flip

All non-blue cards from original Innistrad - Kaladesh expansions that depict torches. I excluded some cards like Unruly Mob and Village Bell-Ringer in which the torch is not really noticeable at first glance. Also Fireshrieker because I remembered it off-hand.
