personally i’d be adding in Mishra's Bauble in place of the Inquisition of Kozilek and Killing Wave. You already have a lot of discard without these cards, and Bauble is great for ensuring your deck reliably gets to the most important cards more-often.

The deck is fun but honestly it's missing some of Black's power. That being explosive mana ramp, hand control, field wipes, and targeted removal. Since you're aiming to give your rats Undying anyways I'd at least run 1 wrath like Damnation, Decree of Pain, Mutilate, Killing Wave, Life's Finale, Necromantic Selection, or the ultimate end game finisher Overwhelming Forces where you don't even have to hit your own creatures and draw a card for each kill.

First, TappedOut has a Rules Q&A section for questions about cards, rules, of card interactions. It has some added functions, such as the ability to mark an answer when you no longer have questions. I have gone ahead and moved your thread.
For your follow-up question, Shroud will not prevent Killing Wave. Shroud only prevents things that target - and Killing Wave does not target. Spells which target will always use the word “target” in their rules text (with the exception of Auras and Mutate, where “target” shows up in the rules themselves). Because Killing Wave does not say “target” it cannot be stopped by Shroud.

No, because Killing Wave doesn't deal damage.

I think the biggest weakness of this deck is that it's hard to curve out early with so many of the slots occupied by cards at 3 CMC or higher. The ideal play pattern is probably to slam down Champion of the Perished on turn 1 and then follow up with a zombie or 2 every following turn until finishing with a bomb. This is difficult to do with Relentless Dead as your only 2 drop, and if you don't draw Champion, the lack of 1 drops makes things even worse. I'd recommend adding something like Gravecrawler, Diregraf Ghoul, Cryptbreaker, or Dread Wanderer to provide early pressure in the absence of a champion. Then, on 2, I personally like Undead Augur for the draw, especially paired with a sac outlet like Carrion Feeder. Other 2s could be Waste Not with a discard package, Graveyard Marshal as a lordless Cemetery Reaper, or you could dedicate the slots to cheaper removal. Invoke Despair is very flashy but seldom as efficient as a Thoughtseize or Fatal Push. On 3, you have enough cards, although I would still offer Geralf's Messenger, Diregraf Colossus, and Lord of the Accursed as other options to consider. To make room, the most obvious place to start is the bloated 6-slot, and as much as I love using him in my Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest EDH deck, Champion of Stray Souls is very slow in 60-card formats. Helm of the Host, Liliana, Dreadhorde General, and Killing Wave (without a drain package with Gray Merchant of Asphodel) also seem underwhelming to me. It should be noted that I'm using modern as the basis for my evaluation. If your local casual meta is slow enough, running more big guys isn't as big of a problem, although I'd still try for more 1s and 2s just to avoid games where you're bricked until turn 3.

The Meathook Massacre I like this suggestion because it's the same situation as No Mercy vs. Damnation. The continuous effect is very valuable. I will cut a one sided removal spell to make room for this.
Dust Bowl and Crucible is the wrong direction for this strategy. They will be cut to make room for your previous suggestions.

Oath of Liliana good removal and on theme
Liliana's Scrounger great for all the planeswalkers and removal
Liliana's Scorn bad removal but also works as a tutor
Liliana's Reaver fits into the discard theme
Liliana's Influence tutor and kind of a board wipe
Liliana's Indignation direct damage and fill graveyard
