Painful Quandary or Soot Imp might fit in to try and discourage your opponent from casting things. I would say 2 would be the most you would want.

Fleshbag Marauder could work instead of Gatekeeper of Malakir

I think Smallpox could work.

Vona's Hunger might be able to work, but I'm not sure.

Soot Imp isn't good enough in terms of cost/power. Against combo i have already discard and Lost Legacy.
Bloodsoaked Champion can't block and i want the game go long. It is good for more aggro decks. Also doesn't synergize with Murderous Cut and Profane Command (which is btw very good card, natural 2 for 1 and won me few games already:).
Slitherhead can be good to buy some time and boosting creature can be very useful especially for Gifted Aetherborn against Lightning Bolts. But bolt could be played in response to scavenge as kind of 2 for 1. Discard or Ruthless Ripper seems as better turn1 play to buy some time. In future i plan to play Thoughtseize instead of Duress in nonbudget version.
Regarding Bile Blight agree, that instant is way more better than sorcery and i should play it. You are second in suggesting it, will buy it and find some place for it (instead of Disfigure maybe).
Note: my friend have two Fatal Pushes and borrowed them to me, currently playing one instead of Disfigure and one instead of Victim of Night. But with some way to easily trigger revolt would be better, equip Lashwrithe away from 0/0 Germ is one way (fetch land is obvious, but don't own any).

Your playing mono black so Soot Imp can be a useful anti-combo card, at the very least it eats removal and lets you play a better threat. I also think you need some better turn one plays; Bloodsoaked Champion isn't too expensive and Slitherhead can be a chump blocker that will later boost a creature for free. Against tokens you almost always want Bile Blight, don't underestimate the importance of instant speed rather than sorcery.

just a bunch of random ideas

~50% are actual ideas and not troll ideas.

also, the deck looks awesome!

I absolutely love the deck. After seeing this I am now determined to make my own variation including some of the following suggestions. Btw this is so long because its also a note to myself.

Keeper of the Dead, Soot Imp, Stronghold Assassin can help combat other decks and you don't have to worry much about them

Also perhaps Master of the Feast over Soot Imp as a 5/5 with flying for 3 is hard to pass up. Maybe even Heartless Summoning which could make something like a Reiver Demon a much cheaper one sided board wipe.
