Awesome list. The new artwork for Rat Colony is so incredibly cute.

There is nothing here I hate but there are some extra cards you should consider replacing Catacomb Dragon .
Dragonlord Dromoka is a great way of shutting out your opponents on your turn. Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund is one of those double edged swords that I love about dragons. Haste and mind controlling all dragons is fantastic. However you can get destroyed by a Bribery . Dragonlord Kolaghan is another haste enabler that can hose some of the more janky strategies such as Rat Colony or Persistent Petitioners . Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire is also another great way to get around indestructible or remove really annoying permanents. Urza's Incubator is another great cost reduction to really bring down the cost.
If you are struggling to find cuts, just think about what you would rather draw off the top in a tight spot.

austintayshus thank you so very much for your feedback! That was a huge help. I like the set up a lot more and feel better about my abilities to fetch Mana as needed with the additions of the suggested creatures/lands. I also like focusing in on Relentless Rats as opposed to having both them and Rat Colony floating around. I'm anxious to get this deck built!

Looks like this is a commander deck and not standard. Could you switch the hub to commander? Also, check out the 'Formatting Tips' article to be able to display your commander properly.
I think you can cut Deadbridge Chant . It's kind of an expensive do-nothing enchantment that is def going to be destroyed when you play it. Same with Moldervine Reclamation . You don't really have any sac outlets that you can use to your advantage with MR.
You might also cut Omniscience . Since you don't really have any way to cheat it out, you'll have to pay full price and if you're at the stage of the game where you can pay full price for it, you can probably cast anything else in your hand.
You might also want some creature-based land ramp like Wood Elves and Elvish Rejuvenator that you can recast from the grave with muldrotha. Sakura-Tribe Elder in your maybeboard is another great option. Wayfarer's Bauble is another similar effect that can be recurred with Muldrotha.
As for lands, fetchlands like Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse , and if you have them or are willing to pay for them, the expensive fetches like Verdant Catacombs and Misty Rainforest are great and reusable with Muldrotha. Any land with a sac outlet is also worth considering.
Last note, you might cut some Rat Colony or Relentless Rats . I think your deck will run more smoothly if you pick one and have about 24-30 of them. That should also free up some spots in the deck for more utility cards.
Hope this helps! +1

Rat player here. Agree no hub needed. No real support as mentioned. Assuming the benefit of a hub would be to find rat focused decks you can simply search Relentless Rats and Rat Colony for swarm focused rat decks, OR Burglar Rat and Ravenous Rats for discard focused rat decks.

100% RedmundR2. They have like 5 cards that care about the actual rat creature type. Relentless Rats and Rat Colony are great, but they don't work with other rats to do anything. Making rat tokens is great also, but they don't help each other. Marrow-Gnawer , Ratcatcher , Swarmyard , Piper of the Swarm , and Ogre Slumlord are the only ways to help rat tribal outside of basic "name a creature type" cards. 5 is not near enough to warrant a hub imo
