A devotion deck without Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx? I also like Crypt Ghast (as budget option for Nirkana Revenant) and Dread in monoblack decks. I have a deck fairly similar you if you want to check it out for some ideas.

KylerStar: Nirkana Revenant feels too slow for my taste. I'd rather have Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, Cabal Coffers, or Crypt Ghast.

Dryad Arbor is awesome! Green Sun's Zenith was meant to be Dryad Arbor's best friend! It's never let me down, I'd suggest keeping it

Build drana right and you will have tons more mana than you know what to do with. Nirkana Revenant, Magus of the Coffers, Caged Sun, Crypt Ghast, Liliana of the Dark Realms, Gauntlet of Power, Extraplanar Lens, Doubling Cube, Black Market, Cabal Coffers, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Crypt of Agadeem, Vesuva. I think that is most of the big ones. You don't need all of these btw, I'm just listing options. Though I wouldn't build drana without Liliana of the Dark Realms. It is just too good to have both. On top of all that you are playing black and eldrazi die to Tragic Slips all the time. If that is looking too expensive there are plenty of cheaper options but those can also easily be the only expensive cards in the deck. Everything else could be really cheap and it will still be a good deck.

Maybe add in Crypt Ghast for more mana production.

this looks like a sweet build, I would suggest one more protection piece for Ob like Whispersilk Cloak or a non budget Darksteel Plate.

Also Crypt Ghast is amazing black ramp, especially if you can protect him.

ok, take 2...hopefully I remember to post this comment before closing the window.

Tatterkite will never die with Mike out, so he's an infinite sac outlet. Retribution of the Ancients can remove counters to duplicate this effect with all your creatures as long as you have black mana. Similar effect with Carnifex Demon

Crypt Ghast is one of blacks best ramp cards. Sidisi, Undead Vizier can tutor twice by exploiting herself.

Dictate of Kruphix and Grave Pact for more sac value.

Just some more random value, Solemn Simulacrum, and Ob Nixilis Reignited.

Finally maybe get another piece of protection for Mike like Lightning Greaves in there.

hey mate, I see you got a Mindcrank so, what do you think about adding Bloodchief Ascension? It is a nasty infinite combo, so your playgroup may dislike that but on the flip side, it still take some time to activate the ascension, so it feels fair to me.

You got some mind-boggling horrors in that deck, so a sweet Nemesis of Reason would fit right in. Also a Crypt Ghast may help to pump up your commander's ability, especially with Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth.

Your's is a nice deck +1 I say.
