Sword of Truth and Justice
Artifact — Equipment
Equipped creature gets +2/+2 and has protection from white and from blue.((Remember the acronym debt.) This can't be damaged, enchanted, equipped, blocked or targeted by anything white or blue. Anything white or blue attached to this immediately falls off.)
Whenever equipped creature deals combat damage to a player, puy a +1/+1 counter on a creature you control, then proliferate. (Choose any number of permanents and/or players, then give each another counter of each kind already there.)

Looks good so far, my only immediate suggestions would be to consider Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon, Ichor Rats, Blighted Agent and a few other infect things perhaps. Some of the sword cycle could be fun also like Sword of Truth and Justice.

Triton I could make tons of suggestions as I have a vorinclex counter deck, but it’s all pricey. Best thing I can see…More mana rocks for speed and Doubling Season. Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider would be a good add aswell. Karn's Bastion land that proliferates. Sword of Truth and Justice more counter/protection/proliferate.
You can check out my Vorinclex deck for more ideas here: Vorinclex loves to count (Goal 95% Comp.)

DawnsRayofLight Thank you for the comment, I really appreciate it. Your suggestions are welcome but I'll add my input for future readers.
Bolas's Citadel, Phyrexian Arena: These are too slow for this suicide black build. While it's built to control, the deck has so much life loss for speed and not enough lifegain to offset that loss - that the Citadel is just useless in end game and a dead card in opening hands. The arena is slow and I do occasionally throw it in and swap out Read the Bones lately I've just felt it's not worth it. Great if drawn early, but it also disrupts my turn 3 that I like to be playing ramp or holding mana open for interraction. Again, the build is meant to be fast and these just don't fit the bill.
As for ALL the swords, again they are too slow and too expensive with mana for what they offer. Sword of Truth and Justice is the most overrated card for Skittles, 5 mana for a +2/+2 that adds one more infect on the first damage (the proliferate) and then after that initial hit you are still left with only a +4/+4. I'll concede that it's a decent card but what I have in here are either cheaper in mana to turn Skittles into a two hit kill, or they have the potential to be a bigger pump right off cast or right off equip. The only reason I see having SOTJ is for pro White/Blue.
The benefit of the two lash's is that they can be equipped for 0 mana.
These are my opinions, YMMV.

Pretty cool deck! I would add in some more card draw like Bolas's Citadel, Phyrexian Arena, I don't know what else to recommend other than the usual sorcery cards since you're not playing reanimator/certain big creatures that could help with draw are outside of your mana range.
You could use the Swords to give Skittles protection, Sword of Fire and Ice could help with draw, Sword of Feast and Famine for discard and ramp, Sword of Hearth and Home for ramp (though the other ability doesn't interact too well), Sword of Truth and Justice, I mean, this should be in there period, proliferate and pumping skittles? Sword of Light and Shadow could help with recursion of certain creatures, Sword of War and Peace and Sword of Sinew and Steel are other options that could help with life gain and dealing with certain targets that black normally cannot handle.

thefiresoflurve - Howdy, thanks for the comment! I’ve certainly considered adding more than Sword of Truth and Justice, but as of yet, I’m not entirely sure what I’d want. As for Throne of Geth, it’s pretty good on the whole, especially since I can throw treasures into it. It’s had a handful of games where it has been a little lackluster, so I am keeping an eye on it. Worst case is that I can at least sacrifice it to itself for one proliferate trigger.
Coward_Token - That’s a pretty solid two-drop. I was a bit hesitant about it at first, but it’s honestly probably going to get enough hits in to justify. Thanks for the input!

Maybe Sword of Truth and Justice even though it just keeps the party going more than starting the party
