First thing, your deck is in standard, but you're not playing standard legal cards. I assume you meant modern? You should change it.

your deck has some really expensive cards for an infect deck. Black gets access to a few proliferate cards.

Replace Spread the Sickness with 4x Grim Affliction. You put on the counter, then proliferate, killing anything with toughness 2 or less for 3 mana. The prolif effect is cheaper, and thus faster. Since you're playing mono-black, which doesn't have access to the same type of pump, you want more prolif. Also, if one of your infect creatures gets blocked, you can prolif the counters on what they blocked. I think 99% of the time it's a better card. Replace the Phyrexian Digester and the Guardians of Meletis with Core Prowler. It's another infect creature, and if it dies, then you get to prolif. Replace the Blackcleave Goblins with 2 more Ichor Rats, since they have a better etb trigger. Replace the Dark Favor and Deviant Glee with 4x Unholy Strength. 1 for 2 on 4 cards is better than one card being 2 for 3, and 3 cards at 1 for 2. Unholy Strength is also cheaper in dollar amounts.

Finally, remove the Virulent Wound for 2x Throne of Geth (2 mana to add a poison counter), and 2x Hand of the Praetors.

Even more finally, replace Untamed Hunger with Snake Cult Initiation. Use the Snake Cult on a flier since it stacks with infect. Yeah. Okay. Make the changes and I'll help you again after.

I love the idea of mono black infect, but i think you might want the rest of the black infectors hahaVector Asp, Plague Stinger, Phyrexian Crusader, Plague Myr, Ichorclaw Myr, Blackcleave Goblin, Flensermite, Septic Rats, and Phyrexian Digester are all pretty sweet in the early game. Necropede is both an infector and removal

your big finishers are cards like Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon, Reaper of Sheoldred, and Phyrexian Juggernaut

Plus theres some ways to give your non infectors infect with cards like Phyresis, Tainted Strike, and Grafted Exoskeleton

Virulent Wound is pretty great early removal and a free poison counter if the creature diesSpread the Sickness is a bit expensive, but proliferating is pretty damn goodRelic Putrescence is actually hilarious in commander, especially if you hit like their Sol Ring or something

but yeah, hope you continue with the noble path of infecting people

Hello again, I would take out Phyrexian Digester, Silver Myr, and Iron Myr because you have a very low curve and phyrexian ingestor doesn't really do much. Inexorable Tide is a good proliferate card. I would also take out some of the diamonds if you need more space because they are probably uneeded ramp. Any unblockable or double strike you can get would be worth putting in here to make the poison counters increase faster. Also if you need more proliferate Contagion Clasp and Contagion Engine are good and provide some removal.
