This is the list The Professor from Tolarian Community College did a deck tech on. I can't say that Disfigure is better than Fatal Push in any particular scenario. I trust The Professor's judgement but I can't speak to his motives. Perhaps it is just to diversify the removal so cards like Surgical Extraction don't strip all the removal from the deck. Unless testing proves the card to be inadequate, I will keep it in the deck. Thank you for the suggestion.

Also I would recommend playing Mutavault 4x and 4x Relentless Dead instead of Despoiler of Souls. I would play Bloodghast over Liliana of the Veil, don't get me wrong because you can't go wrong with Lilie but I feel like she doesn't fit in this kinda deck. You want to hit face and finish your opponents of with Gray Merchant of Asphodel, Bloodghast is pretty good at hitting face. You should also find a way of putting 4x Inquisition of Kozilek in the deck, you're mono-black hand disruption is your trade! If you would run Bloodghast, Inquisition and the seize then you can cut back on lands to. Last some cheap extra removal wouldn't hurt like Disfigure or Bile Blight which is really good against token decks.

Thank you for feedback. I have been playing modern for some time, so I know how fast it can be... The thing is here to keep the cost down. I've got a Phyrexian Obliterator thats why its in there. Noxious Gearhulk is just in because I want to get help in that kind of direction (removals). If that makes any sense... =)) Gifted Aetherborn is a great suggestion, Doom Blade and Disfigure as well. The coolest is Bone Splinters tho... cuz it activates Bitterheart WitchYou might be right on going with 2 Cruel Reality.

I would not run more than 2 Cruel Reality, it is super expensive to cast so you really don't want to see it early in the game and you have a way to fetch and cheat it into play with Bitterheart Witch.
Your deck is extremely slow, you're running way too many mana intensive cards. Modern is a very fast format with games often ending by turn 4, so i would recommend lowering your mana curve. Noxious Gearhulk is too expensive for what it does, Shriekmaw CMC is way to high for a 3/2 creature and it'ss ETB effect is subpar for the evoke cost, Barter in Blood is just not a good card and Bearer of Silence can't block and you need to be defensive on the early game to survive until you can cast your curses and Bitterheart Witches.
In order to survive the early game you need cheap removal, Victim of Night, Doom Blade, Disfigure, Dismember, Bone Splinters, Grasp of Darkness and Hero's Downfall are good options, more cheap hand disruption can also help you get to the late game, Inquisition of Kozilek and Thoughtseize are the best at this.
So keep the witches and the curses, cut the expensive creatures for removal and cheaper creatures and you will have a much better deck.

Yeah, forgot it had to be black creature for the sacrifice cost. oh well!
Yeah, I'm actually quite shocked tha the Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots aren't more played. Be warned however, they can spot remove your demon in response to you equipping the boots, but after that you're safe.
As for the sideboard, I'd suggest Duress to annoy control and prevent spot removal. Go for the Throat is also an option if there's not a lot of affinity in your meta. Pithing Needle is also a classic, and black as access to very good card to combat combo decks: Memoricide or maybe Stain the Mind in your case since you can convoke most of it and you creature can be sacrificed even if tapped.
Also, I don't know how deep your budget is, but if you have a few shekels to spare, or that your playgroup/card store allows proxies, Bitterblossom would be Grade-A in you deck.

Both aspects of Tasigur, the Golden Fang make it a good card, it has a solid body that can be casted for cheap and its activated ability is a card advantage engine that helps you fuel other delve cards like Murderous Cut and Gurmag Angler.
The usual sideboard for a discard deck includes Leyline of the Void for dredge and delver matchups, Drown in Sorrow or Bile Blight against weenie and token decks, Smallpox is really good against tron and bogles, Surgical Extraction to take away combo pieces and Pithing Needle because it is great against a wide variety of things. It all depends on what you're expecting to play against.
