What I am looking for is a decent volume pedal, as I read many break way too easily. I want to keep the tone I have to a T so I know I want it to be a passive pedal. The idea is I want to be able to sound swells as in ambient music, hit a chord and slowly fade out (as the knob kinda knicks that feeling), and be able to perform a single riff in multiple sound levels. The different levels is like a technique sometimes heard within Slayer..such as their song "Disciple". What would be the best pedal to choose under the cost of $200?

I think you've misinterpreted what active/passive means as far as volume pedals go. Often that designation just refers to whether the volume pedal's impedance is matched for active or passive pickpus.

So, it depends on what guitar and pickups you're using.
