First of all I'd suggest immediately cutting the Infectious Horrors, Diamond Mare, Urgoros, Skymarch Bloodletter and Knight of Malice - these don't really seem to fit (especially as one-ofs). Since you're playing Dark Ritual three is definitely a magic number and you should get some more threatening creatures here, at the very least another two copies of Geralf's Messenger and perhaps three Vampire Nighthawks. Your other creature slots have lots of options depending on how you want to use Kalitas and other powerful creatures. If you keep the broodlord then you want more cheaper vampires like Gatekeeper of Malakir or Gifted Aetherborn (with their built-in abilities allowing you to free up spell slots); while swapping your Liliana to her "of the Dark Realms" incarnation and adding playsets of Leechridden Swamp and Korlash, Heir to Blackblade would build on the "lands matter" subtheme Ob Nixilis, the Fallen plus the Blackblade have in common. Leechriddens have won me games. Speaking of mana, I wouldn't bother with the Jungle Hollows: this is Legacy, so if they're only there to enable flashback on one card you're probably better off with basics as they'll always come in untapped and have synergy with other cards like Corrupt and Mutilate. For Kalitas, the first thing that comes to mind here is Call the Bloodline plus any of the many graveyard-castable zombies (e.g. Gravecrawler) plus Blade of the Bloodchief/Eternal Thirst to maximize those counters. Plus maybe Grave Pact? Finally, here's the obligatory link to_my_mono-black legacy deck: The Discard Dominatrix, which might give you some ideas even if it's based more around discarding. Hope that helps!

Looks good, man. I have been working on my own version of Pharika Enchantress. Here are some ideas:

Color fixing / Ramp

  • Abundant Growth fixes mana and draws 2 with an enchantress in play.
  • Fertile Ground, Overgrowth are classic aura ramp.
  • Elemental Resonance in any deck that plays a green God from Theros.
  • Draw

  • Mourning, Whipsilk are draw engines in your deck.
  • Bequeathal two cards for 1 mana.
  • Casting of Bones fits the theme and let's you dig deep.
  • Phyrexian Arena, Dark Tutelage, Underworld Connections, Greed provide steady card draw throughout the game.
  • Fruit of the First Tree as a flavorful alternative to Harmony?
  • Creatures

  • Curse of Disturbance free armies are good.
  • Druid's Call on Pharika would also be good.
  • Verdant Embrace can be even better.
  • Genju of the Fens is a mana sink that dodges sorcery speed mass removal that could also help you close out the late game.
  • Power boost

  • Exoskeletal Armor, Nighthowler, Herald of Torment, Eternal Thirst give you a significantly better chance at winning with commander damage.
  • Removal

  • Gift of the Deity is a one sided wrath every turn if Pharika is online.
  • Lingering Death gets rid of Avacyn, Eldrazi, and other annoying indestructible things.
  • Nyx Infusion is a flavor win.
  • Traveling Plague moves fast in a multiplayer game.
  • Toolbox

  • Shade's Form is one of those hidden gem cards. Mana sink or Mind Control. Not bad for three mana.
  • Spreading Algae can act as TechEdge on crack. I mean, I see Urborg in like 90% of my games. Algae will do some work.
  • Unnatural Hunger not great against token armies but can be solid against other decks.
  • Nert23 on Black White control

    I might suggest Ixalan's Binding over Oblivion Ring. (Costs Aside...)

    Maybe Dawn Charm, Valorous Stance, Rush of Vitality, Sheltering Light, w/ Phyrexian Obliterator.

    Defensive enchantments - Brave the Sands or Always Watching .

    Card draw-ish things - Necropotence w/ Eternal Thirst, Mark of the Vampire.

    Removal possibilities - Swords to Plowshares, Dismember, or Oust.

    All in all, W/B Control is very powerful, have you played against Ryan's Spirits Deck?

    Looks like a fun Idea to build tho.. :D

    Utter End might catch your interest. I would also include Tithe and Mistveil Plains, because Sunforger can tutor Tithe, Tithe tutors Mistveil Plains, and Mistveil lets you reuse your sweet instants. Eternal Thirst and Scythe of the Wretched also might be neat with Oros. Cool deck!

    Ah I didn't know Minds Aglow wasn't in foil, all good. One method of lifegain I found works hilariously with Nekusar was Eternal Thirst.

    zebeg, great suggestion! Honestly, Nyx-Fleece Ram was part of the initial considerations for the deck. It's a great card for Karlov's mechanics, as is anything that gives steady, reliable life gain of any amount. It never made the final cut mostly because of my own desire to keep a vampire focus in the deck. I know there aren't any tribal elements or anthems in the deck, and there really are only 12 vampires in here, but I am hesitant to cut a vampire at this point. For example, I recently replaced Go for the Throat and it broke my little heart, but it was replaced with Vindicate and I sprung the money to get the one with Sorin on it to try to maintain the vampiric representation. It may be sub-optimal, but it's what feels right to me. Another good example is Eternal Thirst, it's a good card for the mechanics, but could easily be upgraded. However, it may never leave the build because, I mean... it's so vampirey! It's a personal taste thing. I really appreciate the thought and suggestions, though. Are you putting together a vampire and/or lifegain deck?
