I do dearly wish a few cards had been printed as legends, Priest of Forgotten Gods for example. If your group is ok with it do it. Don't expect random people to be alright with it though or if they are and you win expect them to complain...

Haha Rat-ck, as it shall now be called, seems like an interesting idea maybe for another time.
So I guess my question now is what to take out/cut down on.
I put in 4 Barren Moor and threw in 2 Westvale Abbey Flip just in case. Not sure if Oketra's Monument can fit in the deck but it would be rather interesting to get double the creatures out in order to keep feeding Ayara, First of Locthwain and maybe Priest of Forgotten Gods as well if I am in a bit of trouble.
I like all these cards you have suggested, and I greatly appreciate the help.
The logistics are going to be difficult.

No problem, glad to help.
I like Ayara, First of Locthwain for card draw and it works nicely with Piper of the Swarm. I think these two work fine without the Nezumi Shortfang. I think you deal enough damage with the other rats in the deck without jumping through hoops for the "Rat-Rack" (Rat-ck?), also I think the Nezumi Bone-Reader is a little better anyway since you can make people discard more than one a turn.
As far as card draw goes, Barren Moor is fine, Castle Locthwain though might conflict with your ninjas a bit if you plan on returning creatures to your hand. Morbid Curiosity, Priest of Forgotten Gods, and Read the Bones might be better options than potentially losing more than paying four mana (including tapping the castle) and life for one card. Morbid Curiosity works particularly well with your expensive ninjas and fuels Ayara (or sac Ayara for 3 cards in a pinch).
Westvale Abbey is a great finisher for this deck. You can pair together with Oketra's Monument to set it up even faster. Hope this helps.

Thanks for the suggestions! I think you may be right about Inevitable End. I wanted more creature removal, and figured that if my opponents started to get ahead in that area, I might be able to take out more than one with it if I enchanted their strongest. But you're right in that targeted removal is best. So I'll probably go with the Murderous Rider you suggested as a replacement.
I don't really have a lot of creatures I'd want to sacrifice for Ayara, First of Locthwain or Priest of Forgotten Gods. Both are great cards, but I'd rather spend my mana to get out my draw punishment cards as swiftly as possible. Spawn of Mayhem is cool as well, but I don't really feel like he fits my theme.
Anyhow, thanks again! I think Murderous Rider will definitely upgrade my deck!

Rack decks are fun!.... For the pilot, lol. I don't think you need Inevitable End, giving a choice to your opponent is typically a bad idea. Run 3x Murderous Rider instead. It hits planeswalkers and contributes to your devotion backup plan. It will also mitigate the damage you take from Stormfist Crusader with the lifelink it has. If you wanted to stick to the idea of 'punishing greed' you could run Ayara, First of Locthwain and Priest of Forgotten Gods. Both require you sacrifice creatures to draw cards. Priest is especially strong because it hits your opponent for 2, makes them sacrifice a creature, and you get two floating mana to ramp into Ob Nixilis, the Hate-Twisted or Rankle, Master of Pranks. I do understand this is not quite on theme though. My other thought is to add Spawn of Mayhem. it just combos nicely with Stormfist Crusader. I mean turn 2 crusader, turn three two draws then spectacle Spawn of Mayhem. Gross. Anyway, i like the concept and list looks pretty good.

sub780lime I took out Massacre Wurm, Athreos, God of Passage, and Priest of Forgotten Gods for Nightmare Shepherd, Ministrant of Obligation, and Victimize. Aristocrats has so many good cards that every cut really hurts, but honestly, I'd take out any of these three for Shepherd. It's such a good card and basically another copy of Teysa.

Don't forget that you have a second infinite-mana combo here with Endless Cockroaches and Phyrexian Altar. Cast Cockroaches with Endrek on the battlefield; sacrifice the Thrulls and the Cockroaches for 4 black mana; recast Cockroaches for a net gain of B every time.
You're really light on lands. I have to think that you mulligan a ton or struggle to hit the 5 mana you need for Endrek. I'd highly recommend at least three to four more lands, and definitely more mana rocks to ensure that Endrek hits the battlefield fast enough for your combos to kick in.
You really want Blasting Station in this deck. When Endrek dumps a handful of Thrulls on the board, each one will create a trigger for the Station's untap ability. Then you respond to each individual trigger by sacrificing a Thrull. This combo turns every batch of Thrulls into a batch of damage, and if you have one of your Phyrexian Altar loops going, it becomes a table-killing combo of infinite damage.
You can do way better than Defiant Salvager and Ravenous Harpy. Tar Fiend can devour all the Thrulls it creates in one swoop, becoming a 16/16 and emptying an opponent's hand. Priest of Forgotten Gods is a value machine. Cards like Plaguecrafter and Fleshbag Marauder come down early, help control the board, and are really fun to recur. (Fleshbag Marauder even helps make your Gravecrawler more consistent.)
Dross Harvester can basically ensure that you can't be killed by anything except decking or commander damage.
Kuon, Ogre Ascendant is almost strictly better than Magus of the Abyss in this deck. Flipping Kuon into his enchantment form is child's play for Endrek, and as an enchantment, Kuon is far less vulnerable than a 0/3 creature that kills itself if you play it into an empty board.
If you're looking for other ideas, I have my own Endrek deck that does pretty similar things to yours: The Bloodthirsty Endrek Sahr
