Theres a lot of slots in your deck that i think are just very flexible. A lot of cheap cards do different things. All about playstyle. I love it. I have a similar build with skithiryx and ob as well. I would actually cut the lili veil just from exp she is amazing in competitive formats but commander is not her suit unless built specifically around her.

Batterskull is a good addition for the reasons you gave. comes down a turn before Wurmcoil Engine would have and can be equipped to one of my other creatures making them way tougher. and, equipping Phyrexian Obliterator is great but just having it hang back and block for lili and rack up life for me is awesome too. i also like the idea of having it as another creature with Lashwrithe . a good suggestion and not a bad way to top the curve. if you already have it, test it and see how it works for you, you may be surprised! thank you!

Hi itachi45 !
First of all, thanks for your comment !
I've always liked Infect but never was a big fan of the usual aggro/combo variant. So i played a Mono Black style since a long time because i love Phyrexian Crusader and think it can be a very efficient win-con in Modern. B/G should be the way to go but i'm pretty sure a Rakdos variant could have decent results : casting Anger of the Gods when you have a Crusader on the board is pretty enjoyable and Blood Moon is still a thing in Modern.
I have only play-tested the deck on MTGO for now and made some choices :
- Plague Stinger eats all the removals of the format and needs a big boost to be efficient ( Lashwrithe , Become Immense ...)
- Still not sure about the non-inclusion of Inkmoth Nexus , but i never missed them. I also want to keep the colorless lands at their minimum because of Anger of the Gods and because i wanna keep two Cathedral of War as they turn Phyrexian Vatmother , Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon and an equipped Phyrexian Crusader into a two turns clock.
- I love Phyrexian Arena and would like it to works, but Night's Whisper comes a turn earlier and it makes a big difference IMO.
I will still give a go to different things on MTGO and refine the deck to try to find the best options ! I usually play another deck in FNM but if my attempts are conclusives i will try it IRL ;)

For some upgrades I'd suggest Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth + Lashwrithe and/or Nightmare Lash as a bonus you don't have to worry about losing Mirror Gallery . Essentially, it'll give you twice the potential plus harder deal with. Something on theme would be Bloodforged Battle-Axe .

I think you're a little light on creatures. You might want to run Dauthi Marauder over Scare Tactics, which requires you're attacking with at least three creatures for it to be worthwhile. Even then, it has the same effect as Bump in the Night , which doesn't need any creatures to work.
Some other ideas:
Lashwrithe will be a little pricey at four mana, but it's a huge boost that should close out the game quickly.

Definitely worth adding Necropolis Regent and Nirkana Revenant they both just add power to the deck Cabal Coffers is much more durable than magus of the coffers but it’s not an easy thing to get a hold of so definitely worth an add another not so easy thing is Cavern of Souls it just stops blue decks from countering your vampires, things I’d remove for them gifted atherborn it’s not that great in honesty and I’d remove Skeletal Vampire on the basis that it’s a lot of mana when you could have a bigger powerhouse in play like either of those two. Reanimating Wise you could add Patriarch's Bidding I always recommend it for tribal decks and I would still leave Mutilate in as it’s still powerful in a mono black deck Sudden Spoiling can help you get around nasty abilities or big monsters, if equipment is the way you want to go then I’d add Lashwrithe

Blanket of Night will only make the lands into "Swamp", it won't make the land "Basic", so Cabal Stronghold will only count "Basic Swamp" Swamp anyway. Doesn't work. It would help something like Lashwrithe that just looks for "Swamp".
I do have quite a few Swamp in the deck, what I've found is the (CMC4) is a high price to pay. Early on it doesn't help, and then your committed to spending 4 mana to get , which means you have to have at least 4 other "Basic Swamp". Plus it eats $1.00 / $50.00 = 2% of the budget, not worth the benefit. PS: Cabal Coffers only looks for "Swamp" as well.
