I 100% agree on Iymrith, Desert Doom I've been meaning to pick up a copy for a while now because there's so much going on with this card and it all adds up to awesome. Really, I just like combat damage linked to draw because as much as it can get out of hand, it always feels earned. You had to set up, get your things on the board, wait one turn, and then you reap the benefits. It's not like Mystic Remora or Rhystic Study because everyone at the table can see it coming, and maybe they don't get the chance to stop it, but having a turn cycle and having to do combat damage to an opponent make these kind of cards feel good when you get them to go off. Iymrith, Mischievous Catgeist Flip and things like that are draw and they are strong, but I've played a lot of them in one deck and have never had opponents groan at it like they do when someone plays rhystic.
But to add one, a card I've always loved is Soldevi Adnate because I really like cards that can get you back mana. It's not ramp as much as it is a step ladder to get you to something you really want on the turn you really want it, and I always felt that was way more fair than like powering out tron or something.

An interesting ritual in black is Sacrifice, which has you essentially food chain a creature without getting an extra mana. This can allow you to bring out Toxrill very early by sacrificing a creature like Clackbridge Troll, or you could even sac Toxrill to it (on your turn in response to removal, most likely) so you can recast him for only the commander tax!
A similar card is Soldevi Adnate, which is repeatable but slow and does not have the element of surprise.

Gaea's Touch is a really good point. I used to run it in an enchantress deck and it was great. Those kind of, get your mana back, effects are always underrated I think. I've found a ton of use for Soldevi Adnate and that's kinda similar. Just a very reliable way to get back the mana you spent.
Spectral Steel is one that I never see mentioned but I've always found it very good. Buffing Esper Sentinel by 2 is super annoying, and if you get it in the graveyard it becomes recursion for your best equipments and auras. I run it in a self mill deck and a lot of the time it's a tutor I can play out of the graveyard. That self mill also has Planar Birth which is the bombeyist of bombs when it goes off. Sometimes mill fizzles and it sits in my hand, but I feel like every time I play it I'm getting 6-10 lands into play. These may be situational, I fully admit, but I never see them talked about really.

Good point The_Acid_Drip, I've run into that problem before. But luckily it's usually a destroy/-X/sac spell I run into, or I can sometimes sac him in response with Soldevi Adnate so I can reanimate him again. I've also put Tawnos's Coffin on my consideration list for exactly that reason - but I'll definitely try out Null Brooch and see if it can save Volraths ass in those situations. Thanks!

Carrion (its just good and i didnt know there was such a card)
Koskun Falls (i loved koskun, it has so much power in a more cedh deck, i play casually tho so aint the best for me).
You can also bring Ashnod's Altar with Moonsilver Key or cards like Caged Sun (just mentioning it). I think you could probably replace Wayfarer's Bauble (i am aware that way its on the field but still, you have much much more options with key)

I'd say at this point, a lot of these kinds of decisions go down to personal preference, as well as your local meta. For example, I could easily see myself replacing Willow Geist with Soldevi Adnate. However, I do notice a general theme with the cards you listed (I forget; did I use Three Visits at some point?), which is that they're somewhat slow. I've also found the creature restriction on Metamorphosis a bit too restricting.
