For my mill i’m creatureless except for Hedron Crab and everything is fine. What i’ve been doing is just running Damnation , Echoing Truth , and Crypt Incursion to last the distance. Trying to do this on a budget is a bit trickey, because Damnation is the most easy free win card vs creature decks. I’d imagine Languish will do the job 80% of the time.
For me i’m running 4x Damnation, 3x Truths, 2x Incursions. You’ll probably want something similar but with Languish instead of dammy to save some $$$. Include a playset of Visions of Beyond if you can so you can dig for them easier.

i dont think you can friend others in this site.
since is a mono black you would want to add a set of Dark Ritual for ramp and be able to play something like Geralf's Messenger / Ammit Eternal turn 1 or turn 2 Phyrexian Obliterator / Abyssal Persecutor / Desecration Demon .
i will add to the suggested cards the budget ones.

I think those are some really nice cuts, can't agree with you more except for one. Call to the Grave I would play, it's a decent card wich put's pressure on your opponents. Instead I would take out Geth, Lord of the Vault . If you don't have the money for Damnation then the more expensive Life's Finale is alright.
Things to cut for your counterspells, Dread Summons yes, Dark Salvation yes, Living Death no. The last one is really to good to cut, especially if you gonna keep your opponents graveyards empty of value with your commander. Grimgrin, Corpse-Born I would cut as well, since he wants to sac stuff, but your ethernalized creatures will be gone forever if you sac him to grimgrin. If you really need a sac outlet I would go for Yahenni, since she can survive boardwhipes.
Other slot's im not so sure about are: Midnight Reaper and i'm sorry Bontu's Monument The monument does not provide any bonus in activating your God more than once, only provides a discount on casting spells. A true mana rock would be a better choice for this slot, since it can be used for both! Mind Stone for example. The lifeloss the monument gives, your commander will provide as well. Don't forget about Paradox Haze wich gives you 2 upkeeps ;)
Hope this helps again! And you know where to find me if you want to discuss some more! :)

I'm happy my tips help, I can understand that some of the swords are harder to get a hold off, especially the expensive ones. But do understand that there are more ways of giving Karlov evasion. Did you know the card Eight-and-a-Half-Tails ? I think you can pick it up for around 2 euro's or something and is not a highly played card, but it will perform well for Karlov.
You really gonna like Smothering Tithe it will give you a retarded amount of mana :-)
And if your LGS has Archangel of Thune that would also be one of the first cards I would pick up, since it's an alternate win con.
Cards that I would cut I think:
Overall I went for a more active approach of gaining life. So whenever something enters or when I do something, so cards like I said before Contemplation effect or Soul's Attendant . And I have cut all of the "Gain 1 life in your upkeep"effects in my deck, like Nyx-Fleece Ram , I really found those to slow and triggering only once to little impact. I think if you are looking for more consistency thats where to start. You really should look towards your support dudes like whenever something happens, I wanna benefit from it. Be greedy, be like Karlov ;-)

Plain old Damnation as a 1 of might be a good thing to add main board. I would drop the Spine of Ish Sah for it. Another fatal push I thing is needed since alot of decks will go under you to get you. But I have had a lot of weenie decks come my way recently so I am a little bias.
Primal Command is another card you could play with adding. Its just a lot of utility. Perhaps as a 1 of in your sideboard. Go down a Seal of Primordium perhaps.

Hey M_Malcom, that you say is true, but I'm going to keep the Damnation in the sideboard against aggro decks, because there are very decks in the actual metagame against wich Damnation is much worse than Maelstrom Pulse , like UR Phoenix, Dredge, Tron or Azorius Control.
In the furture, if the more-creature decks like Humans, Spirits or Zoo becomes important in the metagame, I could add some Damnation s o the maindeck.
Thanks for the upvote!
