Well, I'm going to give some obvious advice...Spend some money and get Godless Shrines and Marsh Flats. Other than that, Path to Exile and Dismember are great for removing creatures, and Serra Ascendant is just good for any deck that wants to gain life.

Emeria, The Sky Ruin is extremely situational in this deck as you only have 7 plains. Add cards like Canopy Vista and Godless Shrine which have the plains tag and generate multiple colors.

Exaggeration, cpu_10

Here are some upgrades that could be made,

Unbudgetizing the manabase, playing cards like Godless Shrine to help increase consistency in mana.

Karlov of the Ghost Council over Ajani's Pridemate.

Rhox Faithmender and/or Alhammarret's Archive should have a place somewhere, likely over Blood Tithe and/or Debt to the Deathless.

Athreos, God of Passage, likely over Souls of the Faultless.

Serra Ascendant can easily find a place in this build.

Other options that I don't know what to replace with are Ravos, Soultender, Sheoldred, Whispering One, Noxious Gearhulk, Enlightened Tutor, Demonic Tutor, Vampiric Tutor, Debtors' Knell, Sorin Markov, and Liliana Vess.

ZackBinks - I must say thank you for taking the time in giving my deck a good look, and never gave it much thought about its competitive prowess. I admit this deck was made out of pure boredom because I didn't like all this redundant Abzan running around.

Rest in Peace was the card I was looking for when making this deck. Rule of Law is getting replace for the single Rest in Peace.

Tireless Tracker and Scavenging Ooze are indeed powerhouse if left unchecked. Only question is: Which works better? This is a mystery best solve in playtesting.

The two Swamp are getting replace with either both Overgrown Tomb or one copy and a Godless Shrine.

I sincerely give you my thanks.

I think this deck needs sone duals. Godless Shrine, Isolated Chapel, and Caves of Koilos are great budget options!

The deck looks pretty solid. I would maybe try to switch one or both of your Swamps with a shockland that can produce black and either green or white like Godless Shrine and/or Overgrown Tomb, leaning more towards Tomb because all of your fetchlands can fetch for it. Doing this will make it easier to obtain the black source through fetchlands while also having the colored mana that the vast majority of your deck utilizes since the black mana is only used for Lingering Souls.

You may consider including cards like Tireless Tracker, which can provide card draw and can get huge, and Scavenging Ooze for some lifegain, hurt your opponent's graveyard synergies, and can get huge as well.

In the sideboard, I would include a copy or two of Rest in Peace, as it is arguably one of the best cards against graveyard based decks.

This really is a cool take on GW Aggro with a splash of black! It also can be very competitive! I hope my suggestions help, and let me know if you have any questions that I can help with!

Firebones675 on 8 rack

I havent been playing rack for long but I'm running a nearly monoblack deck and decided to splash white for sideboarding (i have no maindeck white cards) with things like Concealed Courtyard and Godless Shrine. Might be a bit harder to do in a budget version but the reason i chose to do it, is it gives me more flexibility and as was previously stated, gives an out to Leyline of Sanctity. Anyways, this is what my rack sideboard looks like.

3x Death's Shadow (for decks where discard isn't useful or i think my life will go down fast. You might not be able to use this as well as you don't run fetches or thoughtseize)

2x Disenchant (deals with pesky cards i couldn't otherwise deal with like leyline)

1x Flaying Tendrils (for decks that have a lot of little creatures)

1x Fragmentize (deals with pesky cards i couldn't otherwise deal with like leyline)

2x Fulminator Mage (for tron)

1x Leyline of the Void (for graveyard based decks)

2x Lingering Souls (efficient chump blockers that can also attack if needed. also i can easily discard them to my own smallpox or liliana)

1x Night of Souls' Betrayal (for decks that have a lot of little creatures)

2x Relic of Progenitus (for graveyard based decks)

I know it's not entirely budget, but it might help you think of what kinds of cards to consider and what decks you might need an answer to.
