Hey, I like the deck and have been running my own mono black control deck in standard for quite a few months now.

1). I think you should add Gifted Aetherborn, hes such a great card and any deck that can cast him should run him. The curve of Fatal Push -> Gifted Aetherborn -> Liliana, the Last Hope is super strong.

2). Harsh Scrutiny is a card i like to run as an additional 1 drop, its good early game and later game the one mana scry doesnt hurt much.

3). I wouldnt run x2 Cruel Finality, as you only have Collective Brutality to discard it early game, and if you draw the second, you will be waiting a long time to cast it.

4). I love Drana, Liberator of Malakir but I feel you need more creatures in your deck to make her more useful. I would swap her for a more impactful creature/spell.

5). I really wanted to play Demon of Dark Schemes in my deck, however i felt like the ability would never be used, and with me being a control deck, by turn 6/7/8 my opponent shouldnt have many/any creatures on the board so his wipe may hit nothing. However if you want to keep the creature, i would suggest swapping Succumb to Temptation with Live Fast. You downgrade to a sorcery speed draw spell, but do benefit from gaining extra energy meaning the demon should get an activation.

The above is only personal preference but I am happy to give more of my opinion if required.

I like the idea of an aetherborn/artifact deck! The deck looks like a lot of fun to play, but it needs some slight adjustments in my opinion. First of all your land base. Instead of running cards like Evolving Wilds and Spire of Industry, you should run Choked Estuary and Sunken Hollow. Second I would replace Cruel Finality with something like Murder. Also why are you running 3x Ornithopter? Not sure what the idea behind that was. Other than that intresting deck to say the least!

I went 3-1 at my prerelease with a sweet grixis control deck. I had 10 removal spells, not counting the Fireforger's Puzzleknot, 2x Take into Custody, Fourth Bridge Prowler, Dark Intimations, Cruel Finality, ad Leave in the Dust in the sideboard. Foil promo Gonti's Aether Heart.

1x Leave in the Dust

1x Unlicensed Disintegration

1x Daring Demolition

1x Shock

1x Die Young

1x Underhanded Designs

1x Vengeful Rebel

1x Cruel Finality

1x Subtle Strike

1x Pacification Array

1x Gifted Aetherborn

1x Prophetic Prism

1x Implement of Combustion

1x Implement of Examination

1x Scrapheap Scrounger

1x Experimental Aviator

1x Gonti's Aether Heart

1x Aether Chaser

1x Gearseeker Serpent

1x Multiform Wonder

1x Aethertide Whale

1x Mechanized Production

1x Freejam Regent

8x Swamp

4x Mountain

4x Island

1x Island

By far the best card in this deck is Multiform Wonder. When combined with any other energy producing card, like Gonti's Aether Heart, Aethertide Whale, or even Mechanized Production on it, it's an evasive 10-point life swing each turn.

I also had the most epic win ever. I was at 3 life, then played Mechanized Production on my Pacification Array, which let me tap out his board each turn and i got up to 8 Pacification Arrays once I was at 1 life.
