Good start, but it needs some work. Despise and Duress are not great, you should be running Inquisition of Kozilek and Thoughtseize. I'd run a full playset of Polluted Delta in here if you can afford it. You have way too many basics. Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth should be a two of, especially if you're running Lashwrithe. Ancestral Vision should be Search for Azcanta  Flip. Rune Snag is not great either, consider a split between Mana Leak, Logic Knot, Remand, and/or Spell Snare. There's way too many creatures in here, I'd cut down to like 6 creatures and throw in some removal and more counterspells. More Dismember, Fatal Push as a 4 of, and at least two Damnation. Also, Jace Beleren doesn't really fit in this deck. I'd do another Ashiok or a Liliana, like Liliana of the Veil or Liliana Vess.

I second Ghoulcaller Gisa. Run cards like Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Cabal Coffers, Zombie Master, and the like. You can run Lashwrithe and Nightmare Lash, equip one of those to some hapless zombie, sacrifice it to Gisa, and make sure she's equipped with Thornbite Staff. That will make a zombie horde for you.

Lumek on Monoblack devotion

Phyrexian Obliterator, Mutavault, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth are out of money range now.
Nightveil Specter looks weak, because it has to stay for a turn and successfully attack to do some random thing. There is good chance, that exiled card is unplayable in mono black. One more devotion compared to Vampire Nighthawk seems like a small upside. Regarding devotion, in the beginning of deck there was playset of Gray Merchant of Asphodel, but the card is low impact. Too often i have devotion 4 or even 2 and then it's weak for 5 mana. I cut it to lower the curve.
Report from last FNM, went 1:2:
Match 1 against burn: First game opponent had some bad draw but good opening hand. I lost it, but it was close, at one point he had one card in hand, i played Gray Merchant of Asphodel total devotion 6 and he responded with Skullcrack. It was close, but he finally won. Second game i won, due to lifegain (Vampire Nighthawk + Lashwrithe). Third game was long and super close, but he won thanks to pair of Skullcracks, one topdecked. I was like: this matchup looks better than i expected (good thing), but i was off luck a little (bad thing).
Match 2 against Forest belcher: First game opponent mulliganed a lot (this deck plays very small amount of lands) and i won easily. Second game he was on -10 lifes (Abyssal Persecutor) and i was on 30 lifes unable to kill my Percy for 2 turns. Next turn he finally killed me by Goblin Charbelcher. Third game i was sitting on two swamps, drawing cards by Sign in Blood but still waiting for other lands, when i finally found 3rd swamp, he managed to kill me. Forest Belcher is interesting and fun deck better than my. That was first time Lost Legacy's nonartifact was really big deal for me. Forest Belcher is nice unique deck and i don't have anything good against it in sideboard.
Match 3 against Jund Dragons: Both games were attrition wars, I won both easily thanks to draw from Phyrexian Arena or Sign in Blood or Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip.
Notes: i need more Rite of Consumption, this card proves very good in this deck and i need more ways to kill my Abyssal Persecutor... In match against Jund Dragons also had problem with killing my Percy, but solved it very fast. Currently 10 ways to kill Percy don't counting flipped Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip. It isn't enough...

Lumek on Monoblack devotion

Report from last FNM, went 2:1:
Match 1 against dredge: First game was fast and i did almost nothing. Second game was much better thanks to sideboarding. I managed to remove some important stuff with Tormod's Crypt and buy some time, land Night of Souls' Betrayal shutting down Bloodghast and Narcomoeba. But still Prized Amalgam and Conflagrate was enough to kill me. I desperately needed some other graveyard removal. But Bojuka Bog didn't show up at all and i died with Nihil Spellbomb sitting on the top of my library.
Match 2 against another dredge: First game was straightforward, i bought some time thanks to Gifted Aetherborn, but that was all, no Bojuka Bog, my only chance to win before sideboarding. Second game i won because of board sweeper followed up by graveyard removal, Mutilate and Nihil Spellbomb. Used Bojuka Bog and lifelink before it to buy some time. Game was very long, in the end i had a lot of swamps and Lashwrithe was really powerfull and attached to lifelink creature the game was over. I survived the thanks to Arguel's Blood Fast. Draw cards at the end of opponent's turn and immediately transform on your upkeep, than attach Lashwrithe to anything and job is done. Third game was similar to second, lifegain to stay in game long enough to wreck opponent's graveyard and win because of extremely powerfull Lashwrithe.
Match 3 against storm: Opponent began. I discarded two cards from opponent's hand on turn 1 and turn 2. On turn 4 i was on healthy 27 lifes. Next i was killed by 29 Grapeshots :). Before sideboard discard is my only chance, but still i'm weak against combo. Second game after sideboarding: turn 3 Lost Legacy on Grapeshot with Night of Souls' Betrayal in hand. On his turn 3 with Baral, Chief of Compliance he made something like 100 goblins thanks to Empty the Warrens. On my next turn i landed Night of Souls' Betrayal (he had no open mana, so it was safe) and scooped. Game 3 was very similar to game 2, but no so fast. There were two turns, where i was just hoping (Lost Legacy was Remanded), but once i exiled all his grapeshots and had sweeper in hand i was calm.

Notes: Victim of Night is good budget removal for monoblack, but useless against dredge (Prized Amalgam and Bloodghast). Discard also useless against dredge, so before sideboarding i have almost no chance to win.Against storm, sideboard out all spot removal and let them cast Baral, Chief of Compliance or Goblin Electromancer and handle their wincons. They have usually one before sideboard but two after sideboard. Remember Empty the Warrens! But Empty the Warrens can be handled on sorcery speed on your turn, so have all sweepers in your deck. Be careful of Remand . Lashwrithe scales really good as game goes on. Great synergy with Arguel's Blood Fast and Rite of Consumption. In one game with 7 mana i played Abyssal Persecutor attached Lashwrithe for 2 mana and 2 lifes and immediatelly sac it to Rite of Consumption. 26 lifes swing in total:)

Ringhorn on Vampiric Bloodlust Upgrade

This deck is nice, because can kill in 1 turn, and we need creatures just for protect us while we find our win condition. So it's not creature based deck, but in the same time we can punch in the face, and i like it at all. In my opinion, we need to increase our mana sources to ~42 (39 in this deck) by remove some Lashwrithe or Nightmare Lash or both (cause we are not monoblack deck) and save from preconstructed deck some signet artifacts like Orzhov Signet, Rakdos Signet. May be also remove one of destroy land (Wasteland or Strip Mine) and add some colour land.
