Darksteel Citadel Discussion

Your creatures look OK, Inferno Titan should be a Combustible Gearhulk or Skysovereign, Consul Flagship; Cataclysmic Gearhulk wouldn't hurt either. You're a little light on draw effects; Phyrexian Arena is good, as are a number of similar effects or even some walkers.
Stuff I think you're better without are Chrome Mox (it's a bad land); Mindcrank (you don't have enough redundency for it & it can really help graveyard decks); Wheel of Fortune (Teferi's Puzzle Box is better, creating a weird lock with Necropotence); Grim Monolith I'm not a fan of. Commander's Sphere is better because of color fixing + draw. If you think you really need the extra , try Ancient Tomb; Urrabrask I found to be pretty underperformed. Thalia was much better; Finally, Innocent Blood is a bad Smallpox, which is an amazing card that should not be overlooked or underestimated.
As always, these are just suggestions. Feel free to disregard or accept them as you feel you need to. O, I almost forgot to mention the allstar: Sword of Feast and Famine. Basically, it gives you an extra turn every turn. So, have fun with that.

So what's the best removal available in the format and why do you think it's the best? Declaration in Stone has my vote since it exiles rather than destroys (getting around an ensouled Darksteel Citadel) and can hit multiple creatures. Downfall is it won't be hitting that annoying Smuggler's Copter and the clues (but your opponent still has to pay to use those).

I can't quite give you more "Replace this" advice, but I would suggest to consider the following somewhere Spirit Mantle, Oblation, Island Sanctuary, Porcelain Legionnaire, Ancient Den, Brimaz, King of Oreskos, Darksteel Citadel and Asha's Favor.

Cool deck! It is budget but still fun and strong to play.
I have some suggestions:
Lands: You don't need 24 lands if you look at your mana curve. 21-22 is more then enough. Also add 4x Darksteel Citadel. It can provide you a 5/5 indestructible creature if you enchant it with Ensoul Artifact. I don't know if you are on a budget, but Watery Grave and Polluted Delta are great additions. Especially the fetchland because it thins out the deck.
Creatures: Phyrexian Walker is not modern legal, so you can't play it if you use the deck in an official tournament. I would suggest playing 4x Vault Skirge instead and 2-3x Signal Pest instead of the 2-3 lands you can drop. Tidehollow Strix is a decent option too.
Non-creature spells: If you are not on a budget, try cards like Inquisition of Kozilek or Thoughtseize. They are probably the best spells that black can offer in modern! Countersquall is a good sideboard option to consider.

Duress should be mained. It hits everything you need it to, and your removal spells can kill the creatures. Hexproof creatures are not a very common sight.
Disdainful Stroke as a 2 of, putting Disallow down to 3. I also agree on the sheer power of the stroke. Grasp of Darkness and Reality Shift for mainboard removal. Reality shift allows you to run Invasive Species. Perilous Vault might be interesting for you, as you need something to kill copters, harvesters and ensouled Darksteel Citadels. I would mainboard 2 Flaying Tendrils and 2 Yahenni's Expertise.
You've kind of screwed yourself over in sultai though, as it is one of the weakest colours right now.
Expensive cards: Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet.
To compare: this is my control deck: A Birth of Darkness

May I recommend 2x of Mox Opal? With Darksteel Citadel, Darksteel Relic, Vault Skirge, and Darksteel Axe, you should be able to have a near consistent T2, if not T1, Mox that's online. That would lend heavily to getting your 3 and 4 drops out on T2 or T3 and still have some mana left over after animating Citadel or the Opal (if it comes to it).
I don't play modern so please take my suggestion with a grain of salt. However, I'll definitely stick and watch this deck. I might buy it myself if I end up liking the changes you make (once you feel it's settled).

I ran a meta analysis of 20 decks
(Normally I would run a larger sample size, but wanted a rough evaluation of the meta first since I'm unfamiliar)
4x Mox Opal
4x Signal Pest
4x Vault Skirge
12 x 4 = 48 out of 60 cards (80%)
2x or 3x Memnite
2x or 3x Galvanic Blast
2x or 3x Master of Etherium
+6 cards (low-end) + 48 = 54 cards (90%)
1x or 2x Etched Champion
1x or 2x Thoughtcast
+2 cards (low-end) + 54 = 56 cards (93%)
0x or 1x Island
0x or 1x Spellskite
0x or 1x Mountain
+3 cards (low-end) + 56 = 59 cards (98%)
The average deck is running 16 - 17 lands
Some of the cards are pricey, need to evaluate
You'll want your flavor on the deck too, I notice you have Broodstar, don't see him in the meta, I'm sure can make room for him.
