Another way this scenario can be avoided is with soft wraths like Flaying Tendrils or Drown in Sorrow, which are both pretty cheap. They can clear out the smaller creatures and your land destruction can prevent big ones from hitting the table

Do you remember some of the cards that he was using? I used to run an allies deck before. I would think the best thing against that type of deck is removal and keeping your creature size higher than theirs. The Dread Wanderer would be worth keeping in the deck during this because of its energy with the diregraf Colossus. I would say that you need some type of board wipe. In standard there is Yahenni's Expertise and Flaying Tendrils. Of course both of these would not be used until you have boosted your creatures up enough not to die or in times where it's needed

My friend runs a deck almost like this. He runs B/U zombies with the only blue cards being The Scarab God and Gisa and Geralf.

His black cards im sideboard are a little different though. He still runs he lilianas sideboard, and also the skysovereign and nevers. He runs 2 of Flaying Tendrils for weenie decks. He also runs 1 copy of Torment of Hailfire only for game he knows last forever.

I play a similar list myself and have to suggest Go for the Throat over Doomblade, since black creatures are very relevant at the moment and Gurmag Angler is also immune to Victim of Night.

A boardwipe i like is Flaying Tendrils, because it removes creatures like Kitchen Finks and is cheaper than Languish and Mutilate.

Some cheap, efficient sideboard option i like against burn are Gonti's Machinations, Pharika's Cure (which kills every creature burn plays) and Shadowfeed. Shadowfeed can also provide some graveyard hate, which you don't have, with Nihil Spellbomb.

I was thinking that Yahenni's Expertise would be enough but I'm having problems with it. Main boarding 1 or 2 Flaying Tendrils could solve my problem, maybe. I'm trying to fully understand how when the best time to play Bontu's Last Reckoning is since it can potential prevent your next turn from happening (at the very least make you short 3 land.... or if I have my artifacts out instead that could change that a great deal).

Combo idea: ADD IN 2 COPIES OF Eldrazi Displacer!!! It works with your current mana bace. Lets you dodge removal, lets you tap down opponents blockers and retrigger your etb life drains! Too good not to run!Neat Idea:Run Ghostway instead of Eerie Interlude and combo it with the cheepest board wipe you can find. Bontu's Last Reckoning, Damnation, Flaying Tendrils, or Wrath of God will be hard for enemy aggro decks to recover from. If you add in a Sideboard advice:Rest in Peace (anti- Jund, Dredge, Delver, Storm)Stony Silence (Anti-Affinity)Pithing Needle (Anti- Tron, Liliana, affinity, lots of stuff))Mark of Asylum shields your dudes from burn. Spellskite shields your dudes from lightning bolt, kills Boggle decks, shuts down enemy equipment such as in affinity. Surgical Extraction Anti graveyard & anti combo. Dismember kills indestructible. Paraselene stops Phyrexian unlife combo. Merciless Eviction hard counters enchantment & artifact decks but it's a 5 drop. Hope this helps. Best of luck.

Against all the low to the ground red decka out and about now Radiant Flames and Flaying Tendrils will get you to the mid game. Baral's Expertise is really good ruin your opponents tempo and pairs well with Glimmer of Genius and Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet. I have been toying with different superfriends builds for about a month, and I promise a couple more board wipes that cost a little less will be so valuable. Bontu's Last Reckoning is another good one too. These might be good sideboard options but I am willing to bet you could come down on single shot removal pieces and just include some more broad sweeping effects in the main deck and reserve Magma Spray and Grasp of Darkness for when you need the extra removal. In those match ups I think dropping counter magic will be pretty useful.

If I was going to use Tamiyo's Journal I'd probably just go for Diabolic Tutor instead.

There's so much Artifact hate around, at the moment.

I'll have a think about Flaying Tendrils and Lay Bare the Heart.
