Might as well run Charcoal Diamond over Manalith!

Great start for the deck! You have a great creature lineup but you might need to get a couple more rakdos enablers, like Seal of Fire. I would definitely cut Armillary Sphere because it doesn't ramp you at all. I would put in mana rocks like Charcoal Diamond andFire Diamond. If you need ideas on how to make it more consistent or faster, check out my decklist!

Couple things, You need to add more mana ramp. So cards like Sol Ring and Gauntlet of Power Cabal Coffers Caged Sun most off those are pricey cards but Magus of the Coffers isn't and is a game changer for ramp. Charcoal Diamond Doubling Cube Paradise MantlePristine Talisman Crypt Ghast etc. On my page I have a list of cards saved that shows all ramp cards for each color. The next thing I would think about doing is taking out some creatures and adding some mass removal, you have a lot of single card removal but not a lot of mass removal which black is good at. The deck could be good but theres a underlining thing with most of your decks that you make, They have have a ton of general stuff that creatures, for instance you have creatures that have lifelink, deathouch, but then you also have a ton of creatures that have infect. If I was you I would think about making this deck straight infect deck, of course with that you would want to change your commander but go to or and look up edh infect and see if you can find a good mono color that will work for you.

In addition if we are just requiring a single turn of ramp on turn 1 or 2 there are the diamonds. Marble Diamond, Sky Diamond, Charcoal Diamond.

This deck looks like a lot of fun to play. Damage on damage on damage on damage. But the mana curve seems a little steep. I would add in a couple more mana rocks like Worn Powerstone, Thran Dynamo, or Hedron Archive. If you think colored mana would be better, Fire Diamond, Charcoal Diamond, Rakdos Keyrune, or Kolaghan Monument would do nicely.

I'd look at cutting some of the lower-power cards like Razortip Whip, Jayemdae Tome, or Trepanation Blade to make room. Also, I should warn you about the risk of running Phage in commander. Any blink cards, or potentially even Oblivion Ring-like cards (with removal) would spell death for you. You know your playgroup best, but I still felt I should say something.

Yeah, I definitely get the constricting nature of the deck by winning through attrition and you have some of the most impactful denial cards. I just have a similar deck but don't see some of the haymakers I usually rely on to win the game in the end.

I'd have to recommend Grave Titan for obvious reasons but also Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet. My list runs Gravecrawler and Bloodghast so maybe you'd find less value without them but Kalitas does it all. He's a growing lifelinker, sacrifice engine, token generator, AND Graveyard police.

On the more controlling side, I'd recommend Smallpox and Crypt Rats, the former is obviously not as good as Pox but still valuable. Crypt Rats on the other hand is an easily recurrable means of board control. I'm also a strong advocate of Attrition for making use of your Bitterblossom (and Ophiomancer) tokens or Bloodghast/Gravecrawler/Reassembling Skeletons. Attrition, Mind Slash, and Skullclamp are like the holy trinity of my deck.

In terms of what to remove, I'm not convinced that paying 6 mana for Burnished Hart does enough to warrant a slot. As well, I have to imagine Disciple of Bolas is unreliable because you can't count on it eating anything other than Bloodghast or Nether Traitor which hardly seems worth the slot so I'd cut it too. Do you honestly get enough mileage out of Basalt Monolith? I know it goes infinite with Rings of Brighthearth which is neat with Exsanguinate or Torment of Hailfire but it seems a little too cute for me. If you wanted to include Fetchlands, I could see Rings being worthwhile (since you have Crucible of Worlds) but since that's pretty expensive, I can imagine giving both of them the axe.

Also I'd swap Thought Vessel for Charcoal Diamond since you're really never going to have a full hand with a deck like this.
