Destroy target creature or planeswalker.
Hero's Downfall Discussion
1 day ago
Now, I'm about to explain something really weird to you.
Back it the day, you couldn't actually target planeswalkers with things that dealt damage. Instead whenever a player would be dealt damage by a source other than a creature dealing combat damage, that source's controller could choose to redirect it to a planeswalker that player controls instead.
Other than just not being very intuitive, this made for some really weird interactions.
Vexing Devil or Browbeat for example, could be used to kill planeswalkers which definately wasn't what they were intended to do, and if a player had hexproof, their planeswalkers could no longer be damaged by things like Shock , due to technically needing to target the player for that to happen.
So they changed the rules so that Planeswalker had to be targeted like they would be by a removal spell such as Hero's Downfall , opting to errata every old card that used to say "damage to target creature or player" to say any target, so that they would still work the way they were intended.

This looks like a pretty solid list. A lot of the tweaks are going to depend on personal preference.
Here are some cards to consider:
Sprout Swarm can be really good leading into a big turn. With convoke and buy back this card can bring a lot of value.
Attrition is both a sac outlet and a way to clear threats on the board.
You might want to consider some of the bigger saproling producers so you have plenty of ammo for slimefoot. Sporemound , Thelonite Hermit , and Verdeloth the Ancient .
Cards to consider replacing:
Birds of Paradise is not really good in EDH, it's not bad, it is just ok. for ramp consider the signet.
Tormod's Crypt is kind of situational, graveyard hate is not always needed. I would consider Night Soil or Necrogenesis to add to your saprolings instead.
Doomblade, one more mana for a Hero's Downfall or a Never/Return is better bet.
Tainted Strike is dirty, and we usually don't play dirty, but it's your call.

Hi Treetom, I haven't to be quite honest. Flexibility is huge with this deck and Hero's Downfall is both limited in what it hits + it can't be tutored with Sunforger . I would run both Bedevil and Utter End instead.

I see you are looking for Planeswalker removal, ever consider Hero's Downfall

Finally, I can’t help but to suggest Lashwrithe to those running creature strategies in Mono-Black..

Odd, just got done looking at a different Xantcha deck...
Well, I recommended Theater of Horrors there so will do so here as well. Activating her ability lets you play the cards exiled by the Theater cheaper than if you used the Theater's innate damage dealing plus now you're effectively drawing 2 cards per activation. Also has the added bonus that the exiled cards aren't in your hand to be hit by your universal discard spells.
An interesting inclusion the other deck had was Thran Turbine … a cheap way to fuel your commander's draw ability as long as you remember to activate during upkeep. May be worth looking at.
