Not sure if he is modern legal but a good addition would beKing Macar, the Gold-Cursed as he is removal on a stick.

Sorry I had thought I saw you mention a combo between Bitter Ordeal and Traumatize but that was somebody else. There are a lot more combos that intruder alarm works with than just alchemist though, but most of them work much better with at least the elixir. For example it performs very well with Rise of the Dark Realms, Dread Summons, and other such cards that animate lots of minions at once. It also has some nice synergy with King Macar, the Gold-Cursed if you can get some creatures out. I'd also advise against running cards like Increasing Confusion that mill as a single use spell. You can get a lot more use out of creatures that like Hover Barrier that can function as a early blocker and as mill later in the game. They are also a lot more mana efficient with Hover Barrier milling for six the first time with the option to use it again for only 3 mana, compared to the one to one mill to mana use of x cost mill spells and the limitation of only milling once. Another upside of the creature alternative is the synergy with Intruder Alarm. One thing to keep in mind if you do end up running Undead Alchemist is that he will only exile eldrazi titans if they are put into the graveyard on your opponent's turn. Let me know if you end up trying any of these out and how they worked for you, I've been finding them pretty effective in my Phenax deck so I'm curious what other people think.

Are you entirely sold on maralen for your mono-B? Shes good at denying card draw and synergy with stuff like Necropotence, but her tutor tends to enable opponente or allow them to tutor for answers to maralen
If you want "mono-B goodstuff" i would recommend either Sidisi, Undead Vizier or Geth, Lord of the Vault as commander, sidisi is kind of a just-you tutor in the command zone that triggers death based stuff with exploit such as Blood Artist, Black Market and Grave Pact, while geth allows you to run an artifact/mill subtheme and steal your opponents decks
I see you have bloodbond, which is a solid wincon with the lifesteal, but you're missing a budget staple wincon!
Exsanguinate is one of the best cards in mono B, when used in conjunction with Cabal Coffers, Crypt of Agadeem,Caged Sun or Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx you can easily pay X for lethal or, at the very least cripple opponents life total while gaining enough to put you in the lead
If you're gonna stick to maralen, i would suggest you're going to want some kind of Mindlock Orb effect to stop your opponents tutoring for removal or combo pieces

Hello there! I love these decks and I want to see more, so I have some suggestions for cheap generals to build the next decks,Triad of Fates is pretty funny and can run a fairly similar build to King Macar, the Gold-Cursed deck.Kaseto, Orochi Archmage is great fun and is a aggro commander, so nobody sees him coming and snake tribal has surprising amounts of support.Vorel of the Hull Clade Is a commander i always wanted to try but i am a tad strapped for cash most for the time.One i like is Tajic, Blade of the Legion, just because he is voltron tokens,(kinda like Temmet actually).I have no clue whether this helps or not XD but i'd like to see these guys built into cheap decks that are easy for me to throw together, love the work, goodbye!

Bontu is probably the easiest of the gods to build around for EDH. Sac outlets, Syphon effects, tokens & swings.
Tbat said, for monoblack, I'd still prefer to run King Macar, the Gold-Cursed as a humans/vehicles deck.
