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

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.

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.
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.

Just in case you aren't aware, regenerating Augur of Skulls before you sac it doesn't bring it back to the battlefield, since regenerate only works when the creature is destroyed (specifically). Otherwise the deck looks good, though it could use a bit more removal like Fatal Push in the main and Flaying Tendrils in the sb instead of Bontu's Last Reckoning to deal with all the Arclight pheonixes flying around.

another thing: you can't regenerate Augur of Skulls to prevent it from sacrificing. sacrifice is something different from being destroied and in this case it's even required as a cost to activate an ability.
