Cool decklist.

It doesn't look like you have nearly enough ways to draw cards. Try Read the Bones, Sign in Blood, Night's Whisper, and Syphon Mind. For your X damage spells instead of cut I would try Exsanguinate.

Thoughts on Adaptive Automaton or Metallic Mimic??

I see a distinct lack of card draw so I'd personally look to improve that area so you can dig through the deck to find cards you need, whether that's using

Luminous Broodmoth is always a fun one to chuck in with Athreos as well.

First off, I wish there was some way for me to play this deck because it looks absolutely BANANAS. I love rats and this takes them to the max and beyond. I like the versatility but the one place I saw something that might be a big change would be swapping Village Rites in for Sign in Blood or Night's Whisper to give you the same card draw at instant speed without the life loss. Definitely worth an upvote though and good luck with it, mate!

You are going to need more than 12 lands. Whenever I build a deck, I always start with 40 lands and then for every 3 pieces of ramp, which for a mono black deck would be a mana rock or swamp doubler or ritual spell like Dark Ritual, I remove a land.
Please retune the deck with 12 non-land mana sources and 36 swamps for starters and you can think of non-swamp lands you want to include later.
My suggestions for those sources are any 12 of the following, depending on your budget:
Sol Ring
Star Compass
Commander's Sphere
Crypt Ghast
Charcoal Diamond
Soldevi Adnate
Songs of the Damned
Worn Powerstone
Dark Ritual
Everflowing Chalice
Ashnod's Altar
Cathodion
Guardian Idol
Hedron Archive
Mind Stone
Magnifying Glass
Millikin
Prismatic Lens
Cabal Coffers <- could replace a swamp
Bubbling Muck
Pristine Talisman <- defiantly want that

After that you've got the commander, which takes up 1 card slot, so that leaves you with 51 cards to choose from.

I see the bare beginnings of either an aristocrats or a reanimator deck. In my opinion you should push more for aristocrats. It can draw you tons of cards and gain you quite a lot of life. There's no harm in keeping some reanimation spells in there though.

You want a good number of sacrifice outlets. I haven't heard of what a hard number should be so I'd shoot for at least 5. Here's a list of some that I remember off hand:
Witch's Cauldron
Vampiric Rites
Ashnod's Altar
Infernal Tribute <- has a funny synergy with Spine of Ish Sah
Gnawing Zombie
Altar of Dementia
Attrition
Blood Bairn
Bloodflow Connoisseur
Bloodsoaked Altar
Bloodthrone Vampire
Carnage Altar
Carrion Feeder
Corpse Blockade
Culling Dais
Dark Privilege
Diamond Valley
Disciple of Griselbrand
Gutless Ghoul
Lampad of Death's Vigil
Mind Slash
Spawning Pit
Phyrexian Plaguelord

For this strategy you'll need recurring creatures or token generators
Ghoulcaller Gisa
Reassembling Skeleton
Endless Cockroaches
Tenacious Dead
Nim Devourer
Bridge from Below
Open the Graves
Sanitarium Skeleton
Gravecrawler

value
Pitiless Plunderer
Bolas's Citadel

Lifegain
Blood Artist is a staple
Plunge into Darkness is something you might want for the pure lifegain of 3 per creature you sacrifice. Not sure that you want to use the "exile a bunch of your deck" too often.
Bontu's Monument
Corrupt
Drain Life
Shadows of the Past

reanimation
Living Death
No Rest for the Wicked
Sepulchral Primordial
Zombify
Rise from the Grave
Victimize
Apprentice Necromancer
Call of the Death-Dweller

spot removal/board wipes
Mutilate
Damnation
Defile
Hero's Downfall
Vona's Hunger

draw
Read the Bones
Sign in Blood
Damnable Pact
Smothering Abomination
Ransack the Lab
Minions' Murmurs
Harvester of Souls

and so forth. I'd look through some already built aristocrats decks to see exactly whether you want to take that strategy.

Oh yeah, for utility lands I'd choose any of the following within your price range:
Leechridden Swamp
Bojuka Bog
Reliquary Tower
Cabal Stronghold
Volrath's Stronghold
Phyrexian Tower
Myriad Landscape
Terrain Generator
Geier Reach Sanitarium

oeliberti- I agree, more draw is needed if I am to survive a swarm wipe. Erebos, God of the Dead is a must. Not only do I get the needed draw, I level the playing field by taking the ability to gain life from my opponent; especially since the deck is lacking in that mechanic without a heavy-cost Artifact on the board.

But where to out the other 2 I need? After going from Relentless Rats down to Rat Colony, I took a look at my original land base..

Hi, +1 because rats :) i feel like you're missing a lot of card draw - Grim Haruspex is great but i would think you really want more draw, because you need to get more rats as fast as you can on the board and you maybe want a more consistent storm count if Aetherflux Reservoir is out...

Of course, Thrumming Stone is the no1 enabler in those decks (which is kind of easy to interact with (!)), but i highly recommend more draw either with staples like Necropotence or Phyrexian Arena; Erebos, God of the Dead is great too speaking of enchantments in mono-b.

I personally am a big fan of the trio Read the Bones, Sign in Blood and Night's Whisper, which always guarantees you a direct card-draw. Syphon Mind feels almost great too, it is of course less consistent.

Anyway, cool list :)

Have you had trouble with so few creatures? And with the low mana curve, has your hand been running empty? I'd recommend some card draw. My fav. black card draw cards are Phyrexian Arena and Sign in Blood or Read the Bones.
