Split second (As long as this spell is on the stack, players can't play spells or activated abilities that aren't mana abilities.)
Choose target card in a graveyard other than a basic land card. Search its owner's graveyard, hand, and library for all cards with the same name as that card and exile them. Then that player shuffles his or her library.

This is a solid budget deck. Not having a single Lili this IS budget. A labor of love and a little time and trading makes the world go round. Extirpate solid choice just havent picked them up for the side. Thank you very much for the suggestions and stay tuned as this gets Racked against the meta.

I'm just trying to think of what you'd side vs. control. You can beat a pretty big selection of some really heavy hitters. I've also found my version of vamps just molests affinity. Maybe try Surgical Extraction or Extirpate? Combust or Rending Volley?
Oh as I'm writing this you already have surgicals. hmm...
Btw, have you considered Gifted Aetherborn mainboard?

Can I get some stats on Profane Command? I don't like mana syncs with X in the mana cost, and would rather be able to play another creature. The first turn it would be useful is turn 4, when I can pay X = 2 to return something like Bloodghast, then give Geralf's Messenger an evasion tactic. I see the value in removing indestructible creatures, but this is expensive manawise. The face burn is rather slow, and the removal is somewhat sub-premium. That turn needs to be either Obliterator or Kalitas, trying for some serious turn five beatdown.
As for Extirpate versus Surgical Extraction, I'm aware of the advantages of the latter, but I only own the former. Also, Extirpate can't be countered, which is a problem against Blue decks that want to keep hold of their 4-of spells. Will change the list to reflect a more competitive deck.

If you want to include Fraying Sanity, which is Fantastic in a build like this, take out the Manic Scribe and put in 3-4 of the Fraying Sanitys. Crypt Incursion, while good against creature-heavy deck, can become a nearly obsolete card in a lot of matchups, because it only hits creatures. Maybe think about a Tormod's Crypt or going main board with the Extirpate as that card has won me matchups (hitting an urza land to keep an Eldrazi deck from going big was a lot of fun). Also, want to make your Archive Traps more effective? Use Field of Ruin to force the needed fetch and then the 13 mill. Trust me, it is worth inclusion.

As for a sideboard, the main things i like to have are answers for creatures, answers for noncreatures, hand disruptions, and some catch-alls.
Noncreature removal: Being in monoblack you don't have access to noncreature removal spells. The only thing that comes to mind off hand is Ratchet Bomb but that's a little slow. ( tokens have a converted mana cost of 0)
Against control decks with a lot of counterspells: Hand dispruption is your friend here. They can't counter your rats if you take them away. This is also nice against combo decks as you can take their key combo piece before they can cast it. While you have despise in the mainboard, if you're in a matchup where it can't hit the spells you need you could run Duress or Inquisition of Kozilek as a budget Thoughtseize.
creature removal: Right now you don't have too many ways of dealing with a specific creature. It might not be a bad idea to put some of these in the mainboard as well but good options are Fatal Push, Go for the Throat, or Hero's Downfall. A couple of board sweepers in the board can be good if things get too crazy against a deck that runs a lot of creatures but awkwardly it will kill the rats as well. Damnation is the most efficient but due to it being like 20$, Crux of Fate is a good substitute.
Graveyard hate for decks that abuse their graveyard: This one is black's specialty. While Leyline of the Void and Bojuka Bog are effective, it turns off your ink eyes. What you can do though is waut for them to cast a spell targeting something in their graveyard. if you respond by casting something like Extirpate, Cremate, Scarab Feast etc, the card you target will be gone when their spell resolves and if that was the only target they chose when they cast their spell, it will be countered as its target is no longer there.
Lastly you could throw in a couple copies of Pithing Needle to take care of any miscellaneous activated abilities like planeswalkers.

I'm in monoblack devotion and thinking about something against combo or burn. I'm using Dragon's Claw against burn and graveyard hate or Extirpate against combo like scapeshift and storm. But Witchbane Orb seems an all in 1 solution. I know it's 4 mana, maybe slow but Leyline of Sanctity is a risk: i have no white mana and I can't take mull just for 1 card (i would die because i take a 3-4 cards hand). What do you think about Witchbane Orb so

I plan on adding Ensnaring Bridge at some point; that's just really expensive. Mox Opal will probably never be a part of this deck, though it would be lovely. I may pick up: more Thoughtseize, more Inquisition of Kozilek, Surgical Extraction or Extirpate, more Pithing Needle, or some other smaller cards.
Critique is welcome.
