Buried Ruin in place of quicksand. I don't know what you're going for, but I personally don't like any juggernauts. Lodestone Golem might be fun. You might want more Removal, Dismember is fun. You could make an Affinity deck, mono black would be weird. Check it out. I have a lot more suggestions but you probably don't want too many ideas from one guy.

Could you tell us about your goals for this deck/in general? Do you want to make decks that are kitchen table casual, Friday Night Magic, or tournament competitive? Also is it Modern, Frontier, or Standard? Also what's your budget? This would greatly change how to approach deck-building.

When building a competitive deck, the most important thing to remember is that some cards are just massively better than others. For example, you're playing a lot of creature removal which are just worse in every way than a mix of Go for the Throats and Dismember.

Your deck is very reminiscent of Monoblack Devotion when it was legal in Standard. If you like this style of deck, you could just try playing Modern Monoblack Devotion.

In the official version, it gave all colors stuff they shouldn't have, Dismember being a prime example of this, and/or allowed effects to cheat on mana cost - with Gitaxian Probe being the worst offender at this.

Its not that they were "too powerful", so that the format was warped by their power, instead the problem was the fact that they were so convenient that they destroyed the diversity of the format (in a similar fashion to how birthing pod was an auto include in all "good" creature decks before the ban - and in my humble opinion its better to have a variety of viable creature using midrange decks in the format than to have a single pod deck, where you either go with the optimal or subpar choice of creatures)

@Wyrmweird: What's your sideboard look like? I stuck 2 Overgrown Tombs in mine, with some Abrupt Decays and Dismembers. That helped a lot when dealing with not just flying, but also a wider variety of threats.

I've also thought about using Hurricane. Not only can you wipe the entire field of fliers, you can also use it as a finisher on your opponent. Corrosive Gale/Firespout/Skyreaping/Windstorm are the other wrath effects. There's also the Hurricane effects on things like Tornado Elemental.

Bow of Nylea is another option, especially since it does so much stuff.

Otherwise, you can go with Plummet, Leaf Arrow, Take Down, Wing Puncture, or Aerial Volley.

I'm partial to using a creature, though. It means you can get it by using Summoner's Pact, Lead the Stampede, etc. Silklash Spider, Arashi, the Sky Asunder, Cloudthresher, and Tornado Elemental are what exist in Modern to my knowledge.

Jagged-Scar Archers is also bonkers, but it needs to tap in order to do its thing. Probably best if you're using Thousand-Year Elixir.
