@mortifolkmurphcaster: Hi, thanks for commenting and first of all: sorry for me taking so long to answer you. I'm not that active on tappedout anymore and only saw your comment today.
I'm glad you liked my deck and found some inspiration for your own. The deck evolved quite a bit over time and the deck description isn't up to date anymore (the decklist is almost up to date though). So before answering your questions I might make a few remarks about my deck in its current state:
I discarded a lot of the cooler but clunkier cards, that initially gave rise to the deck, like Head Games , Jester's Mask , Ghastlord of Fugue , Seer's Vision and Mindleech Mass , because they just weren't doing anything useful in most games, especially when I was already behind.
Two of the cards that stayed in and that are crucial for where the deck is now are Silent-Blade Oni and Doomsday Specter . Because both of those cards work well with small creatures that have etb effects I decided to create this really creature heavy build. But maybe there are better ways of building the deck and especially Doomsday Specter can be quite disappointing sometimes.
I can also say that I seldomly find myself casting Sen Triplets but I don't know if this is because of my play mistakes or because of the triplets drawing too much hate. I recently added Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage to help Sen Triplets get down (one can also use Shimmer Myr ). When I win games, I most often do so because of a Bribery after a long and exhausting attrition war or something like that. Unfortunately I wasn't able to pull off an infinite combo win that used the cards of my opponents yet.
I didn't know about Thrull Surgeon and Pilfering Imp . Thanks for the suggestions! I will not include them in the current build because it does not play enough from the graveyard to recur them regularly. I focus on creatures that have an etb effect, and then I bounce them back to my hand.
Windfall effects in combination with cards like Narset, Parter of Veils are brutal and, although I do not shy at treating my playgroup like that, I would not include them because I see a nombo between effects that give everyone 7 fresh cards and my strategy of casting/discarding the opponents cards. My deck does not play out cards that fast which is reinforced by the fact that I sometimes play the opponents cards instead of mine with Sen Triplets . So Windfall would likely help the opponents more than it helps me. While it is good as a combo with Narset, Parter of Veils and Notion Thief , on its own it doesn't fit into the overall deck strategy that well. But maybe one could trim down the mana curve a bit more and then all the small creatures in combination with windfall effects and Notion Thief could be strong, but I'm not quite sure.
Ok, I think that's all for now. Again, thanks for your comment!

wallisface Good point about lily and I just think Bloodghast I have never been a fan for the years ive been playing modern. It cant block and its just a 2/1 that comes back? but maybe it could be good with lily specifically so I dont lose as much card advantage. And I had no demigods at first and just had 2 gry and 2 Ghastlord of Fugue But Im just not sure maybe I should only run 3 gray merchant and no other 5 drops? But what would you replace 5 drops and with? I dont think 5 4 dorps is unreasonable.

The 4 spirit avatars are probably worth mentioning too, if hybrid mana still counts as mono-black. Deity of Scars, Ghastlord of Fugue, Demigod of Revenge, and Divinity of Pride. Excellent if you're trying to get heavy black devotion for Gray Merchant of Asphodel. Demigod in particular is brutal.

A friend of mine built a god deck and was having trouble with devotion so he included some of the following and they really helped.
He only runs 3 or 4 of them but most of them are interesting options to run. Fist of Suns is also really nice in his deck.

Hey, I play a similar deck in esper that tries to control the opponent's hands. Some cards I play in it are: Silent-Blade Oni, Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni, Mindleech Mass, Ghastlord of Fugue, Shimian Specter, Doomsday Specter, Kheru Mind-Eater, Rootwater Thief, Head Games and Glasses of Urza. Maybe some of those cards would also work in your deck. Also Mindclaw Shaman.
