I agree with Tibus' comment about value and how good yawgmoth is. However he is a bit on the pricier side. Smothering Abomination and Psychotrope Thallid are good draw engines that fit your deck well. The newly printed Woe Strider is also a fantastic new addition to consider. Also: Sprout Swarm is a must have

Rankle, Master of Pranks tends to be one of the better engines in the deck, allowing for sacrifice, eating at each players' hand, and drawing cards in a pinch. Winding Way is one of the cards that permits the deck to run so few lands (only 31), so I am not too comfortable cutting it.
Catacomb Sifter is an interesting one. I often find it gets me quite a bit of value, but I could see cutting it pretty easily. Falkenrath Noble can also be lacking, but effects that gain life every time something dies tend to be sought out in-game.
For fodder, I want to primarily have a low curve early game, being turns one through three, then play a sacrifice outlet and draw engine turns three and four. What you suggest is a little too expensive for what this deck currently does.
Pitiless Plunderer is fine, but a 1/4 for four is not appealing, especially in a deck that is not very mana-hungry.

Ah, thank you for the suggestions, deathchobo!
I haven't been able to get ahold of a Korvold, Fae-Cursed King very easily, though it might just be a better Smothering Abomination. Whilst Ashnod's Altar is a fantastic card, the mana costs in the deck are far too stringent for colorless to do me much. As for Pitiless Plunderer, I'm not a huge fan of a four mana 1/4, but the upside seems rather high. Phyrexian Altar especially would be awesome, for powering out an Avenger of Zendikar sounds absolutely disgusting.
The final issue is, while I would be most pleased with including these, I have no idea as to what I could cut. If you have any recommendations on what might be lacking, that would be much appreciated!

Have you considered Bloodsoaked Champion as another option for infinite combo lines? I'd also highly recommend Yawgmoth, Thran Physician as a sac outlet, he's absolutely amazing card draw and removal.
Beyond that, I'm not convinced by Bridge from Below here. I know why it gives you amazing value, but I find it's too easy for an opponent to sacrifice something and automatically turn it off at the worst possible time. Have you tried Smothering Abomination as a great source of card draw here?

You are going to need more card draw. I run a similar deck and trust me you need more card draw. If you get stuck without your combo pieces.
