Death's Shadow Discussion

You could try a jundy Death's Shadow deck it can play any number of the 3 mana lilianas and it usually needs 4 tarmogoyf but you could try another 2 drop in its place. The only somewhat pricey thing would be the mana base so overall its a cheap deck besides goyfs. You could also try a BG rock deck. Todd stevens has been toying with a list heres the list and it seems fine but you would again need more goyfs and lilianas but you could replace the goyfs with grim flayers for sure. Hope this helps!

Thank you for the feedback. I do like Collective Brutality in the main board. I have tried Funeral Charm main board as well but I found that it wouldn't do what I was hoping most of the time, but I think it would be great for sideboard. I'm not able to runFatal Push though. I have found that without a revolt trigger, that it falls short most of the time. I'm able to still take care of Goyf and Death's Shadow if I need to, but also take care of a 3+ CMC creature if needed. Thank you very much for the feedback though.

It is a bit of a shame to run Glissa, the Traitor without making use of her second ability at all. I would run two copies of Mishra's Bauble as a useful recurrable artifact that provides deck thinning/peeking ability.
Also, with all the life loss going on in your list, a couple Thragtusks might be worth including. Maybe swap out for the Vendettas: you're not running Death's Shadow to take advantage of having a lower life total and 17 removal spells in the main seems a little unnecessary.

If you wanted to capitalize more on Anger of the Gods as your sweeper of choice, one option would be to up it to 3 or 4, and (sadly) replace perhaps the Huntmaster of the Fells Flip, (I say sadly because I love huntmaster to death) with a more resilient threat that will survive the anger. In my list I run Savage Knuckleblade as an extremely efficient creature that dodges removal and works wonders in attrition based matches, and while it can be underperforming at times, it really merits its inclusion in my list which is very Anger of the Gods. I talk a lot in depth about Savage Knuckleblade in my list, here http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/26-03-17-temur-midrange/ , as I'm sure you might have doubts as to its viability in Modern, I certainly did. A pricey suggestion to hedge against Death's Shadow would be Grove of the Burnwillows, as it's essentially a free way to combat the Tier 1 deck right now. It's effect in-game is noticeable, but it is quite pricey. I absolutely love your list, it's a +1 from me. :)

So many ways to play mono black, I don't even know where to begin. I'll be happy to help you build a deck but I have to tell you first there are several key factors that hold mono black back.
First, it's most competitive cards are all expensive, Liliana of the Veil, Dark Confidant, Damnation Thoughtseize, Death's Shadow, Bloodghast, Bitterblossom, Phyrexian Obliterator. Additionally, cards like Bloodghast and Fatal Push don't reach their full potential without fetches.
Second, mono black has no way to deal with enchantments or non-creature artifacts.
Third, black stand alone creatures are typically over-costed with drawbacks compared to other colors. Tarmogoyf is a 4/5-5/6 for where Nyxathid is a 5/5-6/6 for . Fleecemane Lion is a 3/3 with an upside compared to black's Sangrophage with a significant downside.
Fourth, mono black uses it's life to gain advantage. This means bad Burn match ups and far more risky plays. Thoughtseize, Dismember, Dark Confidant all assure that you'll typically close games out in single digits.
All that out of the way. You can build 8Rack, Midrange, Devotion, Aggro, Smallpox. Control can be built on a budget but it'll never be as good without Liliana of the Veil. If you pick an archetype I'll help you flesh it out.

With the current popularity of Death's Shadow, and other big creature decks.
Deflecting Palm is one of the best sideboard options avaible.
