you could add in some land destruction as well to help off set the other player not having a hand. Pooling Venom , Rain of Tears , Befoul , Brink of Disaster , Drain the Well , Poison the Well

you could also add in a Howling Mine it might help ya or it might hurt ya... just depends on what the other guy is playing, may also want to have a Tormod's Crypt at least as part of a sideboard as well.

Adding onto additional swamps giving access to land destruction like Icequake there's also, all of which are Mono-Black Land Destruction pauper staple cards:

Novablast Wurm is super tough to get out onto the battlefield no matter what corners you cut with ramp. I actually suggest trying just Green/Black and not worrying about White so much. I'd also suggest some dual lands to smooth out the mana needed for spells:

Some other Wurms worth considering are:

With the Wurm theme less feels like more. I don't think Greater Sandwurm is particularly mean or scary or overly useful (since you can play a cheap green tutor rather than the 2 mana cycle cost to help thin your deck).

If there's ever a time you feel like splurging, Wurmcoil Engine is hands down my favorite Wurm card and probably one of, if not my favorite Artifact Creature in Magic. Super scary and good at all points of the game.

Hope some of this was useful!

Nice +1... You have the only other Dimir Pauper Stax Prison deck here on T/O. I have the other: Salt Mine Prison Escape...although we have some similar strategies, mine is more land-hate. Have you considered using Contaminated Ground or Psychic Venom instead of Befoul? Also, really like Paralyze, I think it's better than Singing Bell Strike.

replace Befoul for Ruinous Path or Never to return from amonkhet, a Swamp for Crypt of Agadeem, and consider these artifacts as they would work great with your deckBlade of the Bloodchief, Caged Sun, Door of Destinies, Extraplanar Lens, Lashwrithe, Stoneforge Masterwork, Urza's Incubator

I also made a vampire edh deck recently, and you may look at mine for reference, although my edh deck is not the best due to money and trade restrictions that I had. http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/10-04-17-vampire-edh/

Learn from the Past Kind of really narrow but devastating to certain decks/matchups we may see. Also if we arent against a big graveyard based threat, it in essence has built in 1U Cycling since it cantrips. Except that counts as a cast and grows the +1/+1s. It answers something that is powerful when abused and it's ENTIRELEY worthless outside those matchups. Grim Affliction I'd argue this is an autoinclude for sure. For obvious reasons I think. Trail of Evidence not sure if this would end up worthwhile or just choke a card slot but looked interesting. Viral Drake Gives us some air blocker meat and a way for you to dump mana at their end step if you have some left and help us grow. Howling Mine was also on my list. We want spells cast we just want to them mitigate them so we are going to need the fuel/card draw to make sure we have the RIGHT answers. Baleful Strix is pure value in most any deck. Cantrips and 1 time deadly air defense. Ghost Quarter, Encroaching Wastes, Strip Mine, Tectonic Edge, Wasteland - a couple to take care of possible show stoppers like Maze of Ith against us would be nice. Not to mention all the other utility lands people run we might want gone. I have too many slots dedicated to fixing so i cant run many of these colorless only sources. (though I did still slot a Wasteland). There's a ton of land destruction at sorcery in black, but i dont want to clog too many slots with something other than removal or it's going to get inconsistent fast. Befoul is probably on point for the versatility of it. I dream of Helldozer lmao but probably not...

Firebones675 on Black/Red Land Destruction

I did a quick search on gatherer and there are a few other black land destruction cards you could consider: Wrecking Ball, Befoul, Fulminator Mage. Also it's technically not land destruction and has a prettty high cmc,but Herald of Leshrac is pretty sweet.

AceGambitDragonfly I've tried Befoul, and Despoil first. They work well, but a little mainboard artifact destruction can go a long way I found. I also updated by removing Demolish and adding in Icefall since I can get it back in some cases.
