Maybe add some repeatable sac outlets? Carrion Feeder is an all star, Viscera Seer can help smooth out your draws. You absolutely need to add more lands. Bloodfell Caves are a good dual land. Cut some of the creatures, you have too many. I don't like Frostling as it is just a worse Fume Spitter I don't like Augur of Skulls either, it just seems way too slow. Kathari Bomber is just bad. Hissing Iguanar can provide value throughout the game and help win through board stalls. Slum Reaper is another cut I would make. You should add some more recursion, like Unearth and Death Denied . In the sideboard add some artifact removal Gorilla Shaman and add some number of Red Elemental Blast

I like Augur of Skulls over Wrench Mind. I find Wrench too weak, and Augur offers impressive versatility, chumping if needed, even swinging vs in certain situations, then sacing to force the discard as needed.

I did some playing around with your deck and this is the best i can really come up with for a synergistic deck. The main problem i had was getting shirei out fast

Creature (22) 4x Augur of Skulls 4x Bile Urchin 4x Blood Artist 3x Necroskitter 4x Qarsi Sadist 3x Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker Instant (12) 4x Force of Despair 4x Grim Return 4x Tragic Slip Sorcery (4) 4x Spark Harvest Land (20) 3x Mortuary Mire 3x Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx 14x Swamp

Maybeboard Artifact (1) 1x Ensnaring Bridge Creature (4) 4x Cruel Celebrant

This deck was good before, but it's even better with Davriel from War of the Spark - Augur of Skulls into Davriel, Rogue Shadowmage into Fell Specter is a pretty nasty sequence.

Augur of Skulls , Duty-Bound Dead , Manor Skeleton , Reassembling Skeleton , Sanitarium Skeleton , Tenacious Dead Death Baron , Skeletal Changeling , Spawning Pool are all ok.

I'd look at doubling down on the board wipes, especially if you can delay them, and looking more to artifacts like Lashwrithe . Mono black deckbuilder's toolbox is my list of all the stuff I've made work in mono-black in modern.

I would say to look at pauper and copy a few things - An UB control deck is very possible, but you need the right shell. Unearth + Phyrexian Rager , Undying Evil or Abnormal Endurance + Augur of Skulls or Mulldrifter to get ahead on cards.

Some pointers...

Liliana's Caress is a strictly better Megrim, since it costs 1 less to cast.

Augur of Skulls (2 cards), Pilfering Imp (evasion / repeatable), Black Cat (random) and Rotting Rats (2 shots) are better discard creatures, however if you want to keep the rat theme you should run Pack Rat.

Inquisition of Kozilek, Blackmail, Mire's Toll and Vicious Rumors are solid additions, better than Despise / Duress.

Funeral Charm is one of the few ways to force discard at instant speed.

Hope this helps, good luck and have fun brewing your deck.

Yeah, that's it. Basically you can't use Augur of Skulls repetitively with its abilities.
