My first favorite card was probably Hymn to Tourach . I was the only one in my group that played and they hated seeing me drop that card.

Mono-black aggro deck with transformational sideboard. Who cares about matchups anyway?!
For transformation, this is probably the best option:

1 - Do not unban Jitte and SFM at the same time. That seems to be a no-brainer. SFM is a lot safer than jitte.
2 - Unban Green Sun's Zenith - I do not think this is a very powerful card. The only reason it is banned is being a good ramp spell with Dryad Arbor , which is powerful, but not that much. And it puts a significant deck building restriction on you - play a lot of green creatures.
3 - Provide a unified Pauper banlist that marries the current list for MODO to the paper one. It is very simple - just use the current one and add Hymn to Tourach , Sinkhole , Goblin Grenade and High Tide - done!
4 - Change nothing for standard.

BW control generally involves discard spells. You can get some good ones with Duress , Despise , and Castigate . If your friends play mostly creatures, then Harsh Scrutiny is good too. Hymn to Tourach is relatively cheap, but it's very very very very strong, play it at your own risk of creating an arms race between you and your playgroup.
Healer's Hawk is definitely more of an aggro card, if you want an effect like that, I would recommend Vampire Nighthawk . Obzedat, Ghost Council is incredibly strong, as is Blood Baron of Vizkopa . Vona, Butcher of Magan is incredible too.
I love merciless eviction, but you should really only run one, I would recommend you play some copies of Day of Judgment , Languish , Wrath of God , and Ritual of Soot to get those wraths earlier and keep the board clear.
I cannot recommend enough some Isolated Chapel s, Temple of Silence , Concealed Courtyard s, Shambling Vent s, and Caves of Koilos . Fetid Heath has recently plummeted in price as well, but I don't know your budget.
You'll definitely want some card draw to refill your hand too. In these colors it comes at the cost of life, for the most part. My personal favorites in casual decks are Twilight Prophet , but she is ridiculously expensive, and Kaya, Ghost Assassin . Arguel's Blood Fast Flip, Phyrexian Arena , Greed , Sign in Blood , Night's Whisper , Damnable Pact , Dark Bargain , Read the Bones , and Midnight Oil .
Hope this was at least a little helpful!

Also don't be afraid to put in some small discard sorcery cards. For example Hymn to Tourach is pretty solid. For two mana you make somebody discard 2 cards at RANDOM. Random discards are very powerful because they can really mess up a player's tempo. That is another reason why Bottomless Pit and Mind Twist are very powerful. Smallpox is another powerful card to play. It fits in the discard theme but it also does a bunch of other stuff that messes with a lot of people's tempo early game.
Also think about putting maybe one or two, one mana discard cards. I run it in Nebuchadnezzar because it supports his ability very well but having the power of seeing an opponents hand early game can help you figure out which opponent is the biggest threat and who you should be making discard faster. Thoughtseize is the best one mana drop discard. Close seconds would be Duress and Inquisition of Kozilek. I only recommend though using one or two just because having too many one drop discard cards can end up back firing for you. Its just nice value, you get to pick what gets discarded and you get to see how strong there hand is, if its really powerful you bully that guy and if its not amazing you can pick on another player.
Last little tip: When playing a discard deck, you will either be ignored because people underestimate your strength and consider your deck as a nuisance but not a threat or you will be considered the villain of the table and be targeted cause nobody wants to throw away there cards. Because of that, I recommend No Mercy. Its a nice defensive card that tells people to back off and to let you be.
I hope this all helps out.
