I used a deck similar to this on my kitchen table a little while ago. Good to see I'm not the only asshole out there. Great minds think alike. +1 for sure. For a sideboard might I suggest Corrupted Roots should they run plains or forests. Mana Web is also a nice way to force them to tap their lands, especially when used with Pendrell Mists. I found Fatestitcher to be more reliable than Icy Manipulator. I would suggest Psychic Venom over Copy Enchantment for another poison for cheaper. Mana Short is always a nice finisher after you've posioned their lands.

Sea's Claim and Spreading Seas could make good sideboard cards against black, which doesn't really care about having its lands turned to swamps. Corrupted Roots could be sideboarded as additional land enchants, or cheaper land enchants against certain decks.

Yeah i know $100 is low but this is meant to be a more casual than competetive deck (For now). But yeah Im thinking black is my best option considering my budget in terms of what tools/cards are available. Over time I may consider working my way in to getting more dual lands and work my way into some red with down the road aquireing Blood Moon. I love your suggestion of Corrupted Roots and Drain the Well appears to be a strictly better Caustic Rain so I definity need to make a spot for those. Helldozer looks hillarious. Im going to stick with Abyssal Persecutor for the time being but i will keep him in mind. I currently am using Evil Presence others which is why i am trying to avoid Smallpox for now. but perhaps in the future when i break away from those enchant land effects i will work with it. especially because i already own a playset of them and it pains me seeing them unused.Thanks for those courtesy links for the ideas and thank you for taking the time to post!

Are you set on keeping this mono-black? There's a lot to be gained from adding red or green, not just because of expensive cards. Green gives you ramp so you can turn 2 Rain of Tears and work your way up to a Death Cloud. Red gives you more land destruction (specifically Molten Rain and Avalanche Riders), plus the absolutely insane Goblin Dark-Dwellers.
If you're staying mono-black, I'd suggest building around Smallpox. You can get your opponent low with Abyssal Persecutor, then finish out the game when it gets sacrificed. It also creates a lot of value when your opponent has to sacrifice a creature.
Some other cards to consider:
- Drain the Well
- Corrupted Roots (you can even play this mainboard since there's so much green in the format)
- Nettlevine Blight
Also check out Budget Magic over at MtG Goldfish. Here is a deck built around Death Cloud that's actually pretty good from what I've seen at my local shop. And here is R/G Land Destruction to give you some more ideas.

you might think about Corrupted Roots and Pooling Venom in sideboard against control. because you'll want to swap out most of the creature auras since they wont be playing many creatures but they will need to tap lands of course.

If you want more cruel control for your opponents, I'd recommend these cards (I put them in any B cruel control):
I have seen a Legacy deck that runs these solely (plus 0/1 walls with regenerate) and they win from all the damage dealt through this.
Just a suggestion that you may wanna look into or tinker with. Hope ya like it!
