Choose one -
Target opponent exiles a creature he or she controls.
Target opponent reveals his or her hand. You choose a nonland card from it. Exile that card. "This place has outlived its usefulness."

Been testing around with a few other options, at first I was trying to be more reactive and slow and play more instants, but now I'm looking at balancing a few more toolbox cards in like Doomfall , Thought Erasure , and Thoughtseize . I'm also thinking of picking up some Extirpate to bolster the targeted exiling, which will go well with Thought Erasure and Thoughtseize.
Additionally I'm trying to figure out a sideboard for this. Not sure yet how that'll go so any advice is helpful!

Torgaar, Famine Incarnate doesn't have to target your opponent. You could potentially gain some life yourself. And it says "up to one target player", so you could choose to target no player. With all that said, I agree, it's not a perfect fit in this deck specifically. But I will give Dire Fleet Ravager and Never Happened a go. I do miss Doomfall a bit.

A few comments. First, what in the **** is your meta where this needs to be a thing? I'm just...kind blown away that you would need to be absolutely this fast. Anyway, card suggestions:
Easy includes off the top of my head are Doomfall, Plaguecrafter (strictly better than Fleshbag Marauder), Phyrexian Obliterator, maybe Crypt Ghast for more mana, Glaring Spotlight and Arcane Lighthouse (lay down the hate on hexproof), and Sudden Spoiling (can't be countered)! Also, you can't play Sparring Collar in mono black.
I also think some better card draw would be useful, and Phyrexian Arena isn't that great if the games are going very short. Instead, consider instant effects like Ambition's Cost, Ancient Craving, Dark Prophecy, Night's Whisper, Read the Bones, or Midnight Reaper.
I know you want everything to be cheap, but I'd recommend at least a few spells that can serve as bombs if the game gets to later rounds. Maybe something like Exsanguinate, Killing Wave, or Torment of Hailfire.
If you're interested in the combo, go for Mikaeus + Walking Ballista. :)
I also thought of Leonin Bladetrap, though that card isn't great...
Finally, quick question. In the description you mention equipment that grants deathtouch, but I don't see any in the actual deck. Is that still something you wanted to do?

multimedia Thanks for this! It's really replacing Gifted Aetherborn that had me most concerned, but your 2 drop suggestions have me feeling better about it. I thought about maybe trying Veiled Shade in it's place, but not sure if that would leave me with too many 3 drops. Doomfall was also a good darkhorse, if you will, in this deck. I can likely replace it with more early game removal to get by without it.
As for going Golgari, I'm going to try to keep it mono-black as much as possible. I have a Gruul Dino deck that's been kicking ass, so I feel like I could easily be happy adding some into this deck if it comes to that point.

This deck is sweet! It'll certainly be at the forefront of my mind during GRN spoiler season.
In the meantime, I'd consider Sorcerous Spyglass for the sideboard, in case you need an edge against planeswalkers.
Side note: Vine Mare dumpsters this deck pretty hard. Not sure if it's on your radar or anything, but I ran into a lot of it in MODOs Tournament Practice Room.
Doomfall would be a pretty OK fix, especially backed up with Divest, but it looks like you've built with rotation in mind.

Hey, nice version of Dragons.
I don't think you need Nicol Bolas, God-Pharaoh or Dark Intimations. Consider cutting them for another two drop, 2x Abrade? I also think until rotation Glorybringer is much better than Lathliss. Glorybringer is not legendary and until rotation it's the best Dragon in Standard. Consider 4x Glorybringer and 1x Lathliss? Currently this deck lacks creature removal, more Glorybringer solves this problem.
For the sideboard I suggest planning it majority for aggro and control matchups. Dragons already have a good midrange matchup especially with Liliana DM. Unlicensed Disintegration is a good unconditional creature removal spell that's much easier to cast than Vraska's Contempt for midrange matchups. In the sideboard against aggro consider Magma Spray and more Abrade? For control consider Duress, Arguel's Blood Fast Flip, Negate, Doomfall and Chromium, the Mutable. There's some combo decks in Standard (Mono Blue Artifacts and God-Pharaoh's Gift) Sorcerous Spyglass and more Abrade is good against them. Spyglass can also shut down Teferi or Karn in control/midrange matchups.
Consider this sideboard:
- 3x Spray
- 2x Abrade
- 1x Disintegration
- 3x Duress
- 2x Negate
- 1x Blood Fast
- 1x Doomfall
- 1x Spyglass
- 1x Chromium
Good luck with your deck.

Essence Scatter, Supreme Will, and Doomfall dont really fit the theme of the deck very well. You dont want to be leaving up mana for counterspells when you could be casting creatures and attacking your opponent. Besides that, I love what this list has going on. I'd suggest adding some number of Abrade or Lightning Strike in place of them.
