Dauthi Embrace is a sweet political tool. Use it to make ne of their blocking creatures unable to block or use it to make one of their creatures unblockable.

Reminds of the one I played. It was my 1st mono-black edh http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/25-01-15-form-blazing-sword/. I say look at it and see some of the unblockable ways to get damage through. Dauthi Embrace gives ANY creature shadow. Hatred lets you end it in One Punch Man. Prowler's Helm , Trailblazer's Boots are another great way to get through. It's rare you go up against a Wall or a deck that has 0 non-basic lands in the deck. If you need more ramp you can always go the Extraplanar Lens + Snow-Covered Swamp route it is one of the cheapest to do the process for they are .50 each. It may take a while but its so worth it.Add Scrying Sheets for sweet top deck ramp. Terrain Generator Thawing Glaciers also serve as extra ramp in black.

Hoobynobber7395, Alesha, Who Smiles at Death 's ability can only be activated during the attacker's step, allowing the opponent a chance to block Master of Cruelties during the declare blockers step (or to respond with removal). If you absolutely must connect with a player (and again, barring removal), a Dauthi Embrace would do the trick.

spoonlordprime, if you want to get your opponents to hate you, try turn one Sol Ring and Ankh of Mishra .

I've built a couple Mogis, God of Slaughter Group-Slug decks. I hope you would check one out tell me what you think. Maybe you'll also see a few cards that can liven up your deck, like Heartless Hidetsugu or Spellshock .

I like it.. Have you considered something like Dauthi Embrace and/or Rogue's Passage for when you’re ready to start taking players out?

I have my own salt-farming Mono-Black Voltron deck that I’m in the process of foiling out, if you wanted to take a look.. Nasty Nate

I think you're a little light on creatures. You might want to run Dauthi Marauder over Scare Tactics, which requires you're attacking with at least three creatures for it to be worthwhile. Even then, it has the same effect as Bump in the Night , which doesn't need any creatures to work.

Some other ideas:

Dowsing Dagger  Flip gives your opponent two useless creatures that can't block any of your guys, meaning it will immediately flip.

Dauthi Trapper or Dauthi Embrace plus Dauthi Cutthroat is removal every turn.

Lashwrithe will be a little pricey at four mana, but it's a huge boost that should close out the game quickly.

Glistening Oil would be utterly brutal in this deck. Getting Haunt up to 5 power for a two swing kill is trivial, where as getting him to 10 for a one hit kill is almost as easy. Bonus points for putting in Dauthi Embrace to give your pumped up Infect Commander some Shadow goodness. Throw in Demonic Tutor Vampiric Tutor and Infernal Tutor and you're ready to fetch what you need when you need it.

Dauthi Embrace is pseudo unblockable for Hapatra, or for political gains. Quest for Renewal and Spidersilk Armor shores up your defense. Liliana, Death Wielder and Liliana's Influence are great with your commander.

Keeper of Keys might be the only semi-permanent way of getting global unblockable without paying mana per creature. Otherwise Dauthi Embrace is similar to Thassa, but requires double black.
