You're in black and not playing Duress...?
In this kind of voltron-ish build Gaze of Pain could be good...??
Typhoid Rats in the sideboard for creature based matchups
Vault Skirge ??

Thanks for the comments and feedback. I'm definitely going to take some of these ideas and run with them. I did realize that I needed to spend for each damage I dealt with pestilence, but I do see your point and I'm going to try going COP: Black-less/add one more clock. I could add some more Essence Drains or Drain Life, reduce the number of 1 cards to increase my odds, and add some Dark Rituals.
I built this for multiplayer, but anything I can do to speed it up and allow it to be more 1v1 effective would be great. I've actually had the Triskaidekaphobia/Touch of the Eternal combo in play a few times and it is very annoying for opponents :-).
