Sanity Gnawers reads as a Rat, but is listed as Zombie Rat.

A card I really enjoy in a discard deck is Hellhole Rats: it discards, deals damage, and has haste pretty well rounded.
A better option that the black cat could be Ravenous Rats or Rotting Rats - if you don't mind discarding yourself, because the card doesn't have to die to get the effect. If you keep the rat thing going with Sanity Gnawers and you can include Swarmyard <-- this could also cast reality smasher as well as Graven Cairns, Tainted Peak, Sulfurous Springs, Rix Maadi, Dungeon Palace, or Lantern-Lit Graveyard/Cinder Marsh if you still wanted to SMASH!!

Alternatively, you could run a small 'rat tribal' theme that discards your opponent's cards as your creature base instead of what you have now. Sets of Ravenous Rats and Pack Rat along with your deathtouch rats could be good in place of your other higher-cost creatures. Rotting Rats is another one that makes your opponent discard, but you do too. Sanity Gnawers also forces your opponent to discard and is in your colors, as well as Hellhole Rats. You certainly don't need to go the rat route, but it does sound like you want your deck to beat down while discarding your opponent's hand, and rats were the first thing that popped to my mind.
