Funeral Charm Discussion

Funeral Charm is another very budget friendly discard effect for future reference.

Okay, constructive criticism incoming:
After looking through your decklist, you have a pretty solid theme going on here. It's a take on a classic that has been around for a while. Unfortunately, with how low cost your discard spells are, and with no draw power in the deck and very few creatures, you'll be top decking in no time, leaving your end-game to chance.
Obviously your creature base is nearly non-existent. That's not always a bad thing, but in your case I think it is.. for two reasons. One, I don't know about you.. but when running decks like this I prefer to have a backup plan (an alt win con, if you will) for killing my opponent. And two, creatures will protect you from fast decks early game. A deck like this will have nearly no chance to win against Elves, Goblins, or the like.. due to speed and no creatures on the board to protect you.
Here is what I would do:
-4 Duress (The card is too limiting, especially after the first few turns have passed)
+4 Funeral Charm (Giving you access to the only instant speed discard spell in Modern, also, gives you a few other options.)
-2 Drown in Sorrow (Too slow, imo. Also could hurt a couple changes I am suggesting to the deck)
-2 Languish (Similar reasons as listed above)
+4 Fatal Push (Faster, and doesn't hurt your own creature base)
-4 Smallpox (Great card, but hurts you as much as it does your opponent. You don't want to be top decking sooner than you have to be.)
-4 Buried Ruin (With how much devotion your deck is giving to early game black, you can't afford to chance colorless mana early game. Also, this distracts from your overall goal. If they get rid of one of your The Racks, no sweat, that's what alt win cons are for.
-1 Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth (No reason to run this and potentially give some advantage to your opponent when you're mono black as it is.)
+3 Swamp (Slightly fixing your mana base)
-3 Ensnaring Bridge (Doesn't flow as well as I'd like.)
+4 Master of the Feast (Gives you access to an alt win con, with built in evasion AND forces your opponent to draw, giving you access to more cards you can force him/her to discard.
-3 Nyxathid (Nice card, but with no evasion, weak to chump blockers)
+4 Hypnotic Specter (Built in evasion, fits the theme better giving you access to discard on a stick. Also gives added bonus of possibly hitting your opponents lands. Alternatively, Guul Draz Specter could fit this slot as well.)
-4 Shrieking Affliction (Good card, but...)
-1 Liliana of the Veil (Good card, but she hurts your hand, too)
+1 Liliana Vess (Fits your theme, gives you access to yet another win con, doesn't hurt your hand, gives you access to a tutor on a stick, and this would allow you to have both Liliana's on the field simultaneously.)
Overall this would give you a lower mana curve, in turn making your deck faster. It would give you access to alternate win conditions that still fit your theme. Would give you access to a few more creatures, giving you more early game protection. Would give you instant-speed discard. And would give you the ability in certain situations to affect your opponents mana base. I know these are a LOT of changes I am suggesting, but, even taking a few of them could help you out a lot.
Let me know what you think and if you end up using any of the suggestions!

I'd swap 2 Vampire Nighthawk or 2 Gifted Aetherborn for 2 more Gray Merchant of Asphodel. You really want to hit Gary every single game and often more than once. I've played MBD quite a bit and in my experience the games often play out as simply survive long enough to cast Gary.
Perhaps swap some discard around or push Spellskite to the SB for more MB removal. Bile Blight and Go for the Throat are pretty good in the current meta. Funeral Charm is also a nice touch, bolt a bird or instant speed discard.

As I'm sure you know, or incase you don't, Cabal Interrogator and Mourning are not Modern legal. To make the deck legal as is you'd have to change it to Legacy or simply Casual. I will make Modern suggestions assuming it's the format you want to advertise it in.
Liliana's Caress is a great card but it wont do much once your opponent is empty handed. The Rack on the other hand is perfect for punishing your opponents for not having cards in hand, much like Shrieking Affliction does.

Funeral Charm is great card and could be put on the mainboard it just depends what you want to take out. as for Bile Blight and Suffer the Past i think you could put blight on sideboard but suffer the past is not too great just in general but maybe its ok.
