Nice deck! Zombies FTW +1. I am running a similar deck, but with a different approach 1-800-CALL-Ghoulcaller Gisa
You quoted: Gisa+Thornbite Staff+Carnival of Souls and a creature to sacrifice allows us to create as many 2/2 zombies as we have life and even net extra mana with a 2/2 or bigger. Offset the life lost with Zulaport Cutthroat or Blood Artist. Don't forget about Ayara, First of Locthwain in your deck, when she is on the field alongside your prior mentioned combo, that is a separate trigger per token created, very aristocracy.
A few suggestions: Stoneforge Masterwork and/or Junkyo Bell, both cards have the effect of Coat of Arms, put it on a token, attack into one of your opponents then sacrifice it to Gisa. Mimic Vat is also very nice in a deck like this, especially with a zombie like Gray Merchant of Asphodel.

Hi there! +1, Zombies ftw!! As a Ghoulcaller Gisa player myself, I found that I was always short to make a lot of zombies because the creatures I sacrificed had too little power. I play The lord package, but to sacrifice the lords is of course a shame. You need beefy creatures to go wide. I implemented a few extra tools to beef up my zombies in total. A few suggestions;
Ayara, First of Locthwain: Drain/Gain and card draw and more devotion for Gray Merchant of Asphodel. The 2/2 Zombie Tokens made by Gisa are black. Sacrificing a 10/10 token, will make 10 new zombies and 10 Ayara triggers.

jakeyuki12, so I made some changes based off of your observations. I removed the following cards: Aurelia's Fury, Auriok Steelshaper, Cenn's Tactician, Godsend, Response / Resurgence, Stoneforge Masterwork, Tajic, Legion's Edge.
I want to preserve a few of those voltron equipments because my primary wincon has always been a 1-2 shot to opponents with commander damage. But I toned it down a little more. What do you think of the changes?

Scattershot Archer (especially if you have ways to give it deathtouch)
Traproot Kami in mono-green
Soulmender in any build that has "Whenever you gain life" triggers
Skyblinder Staff in flying heavy decks
Runed Stalactite in tribal builds to protect utility creatures
And I didn't forget black, I just don't play it so I don't have anything to add for that color.

Gotta love cat tribal!
Likewise, if you have people in your play group that run a lot of sweepers, you can run Creeping Renaissance, Faith's Reward, or even Wrap in Vigor to prevent/bounce back from your creatures dying. Of course, you could also use Teferi's Protection if you have the budget for it :)

Ahoy there! I also built a rat deck some time back, so I might be able to give you some suggestions! First, lets take a look at your ramp and lands. Having the right ramp and lands can be very very very strong in commander, and it should always be properly used.
Since you are in mono black, there aren't too many land options out there for you. But one I would definitely include is the Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth + Cabal Coffers combo. It can get you a LOT of mana very fast. Also consider Cabal Stronghold, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, and Shizo, Death's Storehouse. Since you have a lot of Swamps, I would also consider some nice colorless sources, like Ancient Tomb, Wasteland, maybe Maze of Ith, Strip Mine, etc. These can be extremely useful, especially in mono decks.
Now on to ramp! A mono colored deck should have 6-7 ramp spells in my opinion, and here are some I would consider. Dark Ritual, Jet Medallion, Lotus Petal, Thran Dynamo, Mana Vault, etc. Ramp can be extremely useful, and there are much more expensive options but these are very good to start with.
There are many fun ways to make rats! I would consider everything above, and I hope it helps you on your journey in this deck! If you found this helpful be sure to check out and upvote my decks (Double Trouble EDH, and give me suggestions if you have any! Anyways though, good luck on your deck, hope this helps, and have a great day!

I always wanted to make an sliver EDH deck! This looks like a great build already! Maybe Horned Sliver for that late game reach? They also love Alpha Status, Stoneforge Masterwork, and Shared Animosity if you want to do a big Timmy win :) While not nearly as good as infect, Virulent Sliver also seems like a cool alternate win card you could deploy if you find yourself against lifegain or stax decks... or I guess a Triumph of the Hordes would also do. It's kind of pricey to cast but Kindred Dominance can also be brutal against creature-heavy play groups.
