Needs more Rat Colony
With only 6 Relentless Rats you need half of your total number on the battlefield to even make them 4/4s. Most of the time they will be 3 mana 2/2s. You need a critical mass of Relentless Rats--at least 20. If you want to dedicate only a small portion of your deck to the Relentless effect, then Rat Colony is much better; unlike Relentless Rats it benefits from any rat you control, including Marrow-Gnawer's tokens. Pack Rat is also superior if you have many non-Relentless Rats.
Rat Colony is strictly better than Swarm of Rats. It's also generally better than Bog Rats, Carrion Rats, Muck Rats, Nezumi Cutthroat (fear isn't worth a large power loss and "can't block", especially when Marrow-Gnawer provides fear), Pestilence Rats (Rat Colony gets +2/-2 under most conditions and costs 1 less), and Earsplitting Rats (not enough graveyard/discard synergies).
I'm not sure how Shriveling Rot serves the deck.
There are two Cabal Strongholds, so one needs to come out. Cycling lands--Barren Moor, Polluted Mire, and Desert of the Glorified--hedge against land-heavy draws. Some cheap utility/value lands like Zhalfirin Void, Encroaching Wastes, Mystifying Maze, or Temple of the False God might be good over some number of Swamps too.
Phyrexian Tribute -> Scour from Existence, Unstable Obelisk. I know black is bad with artifacts, but there is a reason Phyrexian Tribute is in 55 edh decks, and the other two are in over 5000 each, and it isn't just color restriction. They cover all five permanent types instead of just one, including the equally hard-for-black enchantments. Requiring two creatures to sacrifice, Phyrexian Tribute isn't even always easier to cast, and it's effect is far less flexible.
Speaking of Unstable Obelisk, more mana ramp would be prudent, like Wayfarer's Bauble, Mind Stone, and Commander's Sphere. Bontu's Monument isn't Jet Medallion, but is still worthwhile with 27 creatures.
I don't think there are enough graveyard synergies to make Living Death appropriate.
Night Dealings is slow, does nothing if the battlefield isn't somewhat favorable, can potentially get removed, makes you reveal, and can't get lands. Razaketh's Rite and Mastermind's Acquisition tutor with no fuss. If you want slow, multi-card tutoring, Diabolic Revelation, Demonic Collusion, and Increasing Ambition are reliable options. Although none feature Nezumi in their art.

You have many Eldrazi that care about cards being exiled but you only have 7 effects in the deck that exile cards? Do you have issues having enough exiled targets?
Dimensional Infiltrator seems to be in flavor with the deck if you think you have enough colorless mana support (8)
Lastly a personal favorite in my mill EDH decks Undead Alchemist which I think you can still copy with Lazav and exile if you stack the triggers correctly.

Ok so currently I am running
3x Forked Bolt
I played a tournament last Saturday, did bad the first round against RG Eldrazi (didn't see that one coming!) from one of my friends. Any suggestions to beat that?

Looking to make combo hate you- any one of the many, many black 'search library and remove' cards.
Most majorly successful mill decks I've seen have been esper control looking to trigger a t1 archive trap off of a Path to Exile, if you want to move that direction, but most the rest of it is just surviving that many cards in graveyards. Tormod's Crypt in the side.

Nice to see this deck evolving. Consider Jund Charm in the side. It is a Pyroclasm which is really good against serveral decks, especially when your creatures are buffed out of range and it is also a Tormod's Crypt so it can do what Anafenza is doing now but a bit better since it gives you multiple modes to choose from and does not die to removal.

I feel like Kuldotha Rebirth needs a little more active support to be effective- just ornithopter and it are rarely in your hand at the same time.
Fortunately, the hyper efficient and cheap Shrapnel Blast can act as (functionally) extra grenades, and cards like Darksteel Citadel, Herbal Poultice, Memnite, Panic Spellbomb and sideboard Tormod's Crypt are available.
Personally, I like to sit a lot lower on the mana curve, running Mogg War Marshal, and sometimes run Dragon Fodder/Krenko's Command over empty the warrens (as that fits better in Skirk Prospector combo), then rely on the haste-enabling lords and Reckless Bushwhacker/Goblin Bushwhacker.
Have fun brewing, goblins can be a lot of fun!
