Black has two great, although high CMC, boardwipe spells in Plague Wind and In Garruk's Wake. You might consider those if you play in a creature-heavy meta.

Dauthi Embrace and Dauthi Trapper are also some other considerations to getting your commander damage through. I run those in my Vorath deck. Cards like Lashwrithe and Nightmare Lash are also good staples to run in a swamp-heavy deck.

I like the build, and this is the first time I've seen that commander. Thanks for sharing it.

I'd reccomend Gifted Aetherborn. It's a great card all around and could be brought back with Driver of the Dead unlike Nighthawk. I'd also play x4 Victim of Night for targeted removal, but that's just preference, although it outclasses Doomblade by quite a bit (especially since double black isn't a concern).

If you like Whip of Erebos, I'd cut it to one copy. You already have access to life gain and seeing two copies in one game doesn't sound like a good thing. Also, if Hero's Downfall is there to battle Planeswalkers, you might go with Vampire Hexmage instead, as its tribal and can assassinate walkers with her ability, and is a good creature anyway (Also a target for Driver of the Dead).

-2 Driver of the Dead (card is ok, but you don't want to draw too many due to cmc), -1 Vampire Nocturnus, -1 Whip of Erebos, -2 Doom Blade, -3 Go for the Throat.

+4 Victim of Night, +4 Gifted Aetherborn, +1 Dismember or Lashwrithe

Collective Brutality is a better sideboard (probably the best) card against Burn, kill Goblin Guide, discard Boros Charm, drain 2 Life. Really takes the wind out of their sails, every mode is gold. I'd also suggest either Leyline of the Void for Dredge or Grafdigger's Cage for Dredge/Company matchups in the sideboard, makes it a lot easier.

I think Grafted Wargear isn't necessary, it doesn't do a whole lot for you. If you want a Black Artifact/Equipment Lashwrithe is much more powerful and comes with it's own body as well. On the downside, that would make your Dark Confidant curve even more dangerous, and it's on the high side already. I'd almost consider moving the Gifted Aetherborn to the maindeck.

I highly recommend against running Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth in your build. You will fix mana for Abzan/Grixis/Jund and save them the life they'd pay for Shocklands or Fetchlands while not fixing any of your Mana.

A Liliana could help you out, but you probably know that yourself very well. The price tag is pretty disgusting.

If you have the money and want to experiment, take a look at what I did to my manabase in this [http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/21-06-17-mono-black-aggro] deck. Not only does it enable you to run 4 Fatal Push to their maximum effect, giving you the best removal spell in Modern, you can actually get a sneaky 4 Blood Moon from the sideboard and destroy several matchups just through that.

Otherwise I like your list, pretty classic Mono-Black stuff which is always nice to see. Those are just my thoughts as I occasionally play a Gate-style MonoB as well

Thanks for help Sargeras,

  1. Smallpox feels good so I'll add like 2x copies in the deck.

  2. Tombstalker I don't feel like my graveyard is going to be full enough to support 2x Murderous Cut and Tombstalker but I'll keep him in mind if I find myself with a full graveyard after I buy the parts for the deck.

  3. I'm definitely adding Gifted Aetherborn.

  4. I will go for one of Abyssal Persecutor instead of Dismember since i wanna stay in the budget and the removal I currently have is probably too much.

  5. Lashwrithe is definitely going to be in the deck, maybe cutting Murder

Thanks again for your help.

Gotta support fellow black players, so +1. Here are my suggestions.

  1. Since your playgroup is mostly casual players, I'm guessing most of the decks are likely creature based ones, which makes cards like Smallpox very effective and dealing with any early game creatures your opponents might have. If you do go the pox route, Tombstalker could be in your future.

  2. If you want some good creatures, Gifted Aetherborn is definitely good as more nighthawks are always great. Abyssal Persecutor would be perfect for this deck since you run so much removal. Also, Lashwrithe on cards like Vampire Nighthawk can end games very quickly.

  3. I'd cut some of the expensive kill spells and up the land count, as cards like Doom Blade, Go for the Throat, Vendetta, all work very well.

  4. Honestly, especially in casual metas, decks like this are often very destructive, cutting expensive kill spells for cheaper cmc ones will likely be enough for you to stop what your opponent is doing and kill them.
