Whenever you discard a creature card, create a 2/2 black Zombie creature token.
Whenever you discard a land card, gain .
Whenever you discard a noncreature, nonland card, draw a card.

I play in a very casual meta, so I can afford to play dumb expensive flavorful cards. :)
Here are some modifications you can try to make the deck stronger if your meta is a bit more serious:
Take out some expensive and "timmy" cards. Suggestions: Emrakul, Myojin, Wondrous Crucible, Ovika, Gigantoplasm, Wildfire Devils. While being fun and flavorful, these are in my opinion not great cards in a more competitive setting.
Add more protection for Abaddon and more ways to enable his ability easily. Suggestions: Swiftfoot Boots, Bolt Bend, Logic Knot, Protection Racket, Loyal Subordinate, Court of Ambition. Abaddon is often a remove-on-sight commander so more protection could be necessary and relying on combat damage to enable him could be problematic in a more competitive setting.
Add more triggers from draws/discards. Suggestions: Tergrid Flip, Megrim, Liliana's Caress, Bone Miser. These cards combined with wheels can provide huge tempo swings making the deck much more spiky.
You might need more/better control cards and finishers. My suggestion for another finisher would be Torment of Hailfire.
Hope some of this helps to adjust the deck for your meta. :)

Hello from a covert discard enjoyer. My suggestion is that the discard itself won't win you the game and If I were you I'd cut some discard spells that target only a single player like Duress or Invoke Despair because they are quite inefficient in a 4 player game as well as some discard spells that only discard one card like Burglar Rat because again they are quite inefficient. Bad Deal isn't what you want to be doing for 6 mana. Instead, I'd add Painful Quandary because it has a static effect and in a low resource environment your opponents will have to start paying 5 life to do anything and that feels really miserable. Discard goes well with reanimation, I'd add all 3 versions of Animate Dead -> Dance of the Dead and Necromancy. Unfortunately discard players often get focused by the table so I like to add something like Gray Merchant of Asphodel to keep life total high. Consider also Bone Miser, Soul Shatter, Sign in Blood, Rankle, Master of Pranks, Bottomless Pit, all versions of Plaguecrafter, Asylum Visitor and Containment Construct. In general I'd prioritise static discard effects (like discard one card every upkeep etc) over single dicard effects.

Hey! Nice deck. :)
I have a grixis deck with a draw/discard/wheel subtheme as well.
Here are some cards I use that you might consider: (You probably know most, but hopefully you'll like some.)
Arjun, the Shifting Flame - Incredible with any draw/discard trigger. (Locust God, Archfiend of Ifnir, ...)
wheels: Magus of the Wheel, Dragon Mage, Burning Inquiry
triggers: Kederekt Parasite, Sangromancer, Bone Miser
Lastly, you might want to checkout some Delve cards as they have great synergy with wheels.

They are considerations of course. However a lot of them require me to build too linear like with adding Epicure of Blood and Cliffhaven Vampire. They’re absolutely great cards and if I wasn’t trying to be more adaptive in my deck building style and wanted to fine point the lifegain/loss strategy I’d absolutely add them. Same goes for Oloro, Ageless Ascetic lovely card but I don’t want to focus exclusively on lifegain/loss strategy. I know most people say to focus exclusively on a specific strategy but that’s just not my play style anymore. I like versatility and surprise! Haha
Lich's Mastery and Drogskol Reaver are great cards and easy wins. But I just don’t like playing like that with my friends so I stay away from those sort of things. I have added Peer into the Abyss and Necrologia as quick wins but more fair in my opinion.
Bone Miser and Psychosis Crawler are in my consideration pile in my deck box actually haha so you’re right on the money there! I’m also considering Shabraz, the Skyshark Flip. I think I may be adding Sakashima the Impostor to my ninja deck now that you mention it.
Shadow of the Grave is a lovely card. I just always cut it at the final round of cuts for some reason. It’s in my maybe pile in my deck box though for sure. I still have to play test and work out the kinks of gameplay. So it may still make the cut in the end.
Bag of Holding would be lovely if it weren’t so easily destroyed. It’s also counterintuitive to the reanimator subtheme I have going in the deck.
Thank you so much for all your suggestions! It definitely reinforced some of my considerations :)

Hey, welcome kingc0rn!
I see what you're saying. I probably wouldn't use Hatred in particular, due to the mana cost (also the potential feel-bads of removal in response). A couple more solid options would probably be Boon of Boseiju, or even Vines of Vastwood, which doubles as protection (and triples as a counterspell for auras, haha).
Interesting idea! I'll consider these.
Welcome back killer_eye!
This is probably something I should add in to my description, since I've had someone else wondering that exact thing.
In a situation where you can filter through your deck, but you have zero mana available, you can:
Cast Lotus Petal into Sacrifice into Phyrexian Altar (hopefully by using Zombie Infestation, you'll have enough sacrifice fodder to pay for the Korozda Guildmage combo).
Flashback Dread Return for Bone Miser, and discard lands until Phyrexian Altar.
Flashback Dread Return for K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth, and pay 2 life for Sacrifice, and get Phyrexian Altar.
Feel free to let me know, anyone, if there's another line I'm missing!

If you're deck is all about evasive creatures attacking and making use of the Connive ability I'd consider these:
Bone Miser Discarding becomes rewarding
Elbrus, the Binding Blade Flip= transforms into very strong creature
Vorpal Sword= top end win con
Lazotep Chancellor discard= big creature
Hope this helps, good luck. Feel free to critique my decks.
