Dredge isn't dead. The consensus is to replace Troll with Thug and cut Scourge Devil for Haunted Dead and call it a day. It's certainly still viable, as is Infect.

Jund and Abzan will be popular, as will Tron (expecting those two decks). Affinity and Burn will be the aggressive decks of choice. Given all of this, I would choose to play Abzan out of your options. Lingering Souls is excellent in the BG mirror and against Affinity, and your options against Burn are good. I am not sure how much better Sultai is against Tron than Abzan, but I would likely choose the latter nonetheless.

seshiro_of_the_orochi: Thanks for the suggestion. I don't really want many, because they conflict a bit with my other 2 drops and doesn't really give me much, but it could be a good turn three play if I draw too many Blightsteel Colossuses.

Sgt.Pickles: I need the investigate for Shape Anew and there aren't really any other cheap options that work. Anthems could be good and I might try them at least in the sideboard, but I'm not sure if I really need to main deck them. I don't think that I really need to splash black for Lingering Souls, because it is a bit costly at 3 mana and tokens aren't my main wincon, and I don't think I really need Thoughtseize enough to splash for it either. If you did want to make an esper version of this however, Bitterblossom and Thoughtless could be great additions. Hopefully Dispels and Negates will be enough to stop Surgical Extractions. Worldspine Wurm would make a great budget option, but Blightsteel Colossus seems like it would usualy be better. Indestructible means that it is much harder to kill and it is also the only thing you can get with Shape Anew, so I want to have 2.

Thank you both for the feedback!

Would you consider one copy of Indomitable Creativity for the Lingering Souls tokens? It could be a good way to cheat out a few creatures, maybe even Emrakul.

So modern is a faster format than standard is with wins as early as turn 3. A lot of decks averaging out to a turn 4 win. So the enchantments seem a little slow in my book. Birds of Paradise is better than Sylvan Caryatid. It can let you turn 2 Nissa, Voice of Zendikar and turn 3 Gideon, Ally of Zendikar, both o which make tokens right away. Spectral Procession makes fliers. fliers are basically unblockable in modern. Lingering Souls more fliers. Run 1 Overgrown Tomb and you can hit its flashback. Raise the Alarm is 2 drop instant that makes 2 1/1's. Path to Exile because every deck needs removal. Avacyn's Pilgrim more early ramp. Gavony Township makes all your tokens more threatening. Windbrisk Heights some card advantage. A one of Westvale Abbey  Flip to put yourself over the top. maybe a 1 of Craterhoof Behemoth for end game.Selesnya Charm is a decent tool box card. Elspeth, Knight-Errant looks super annoying.Beckon Apparition graveyard removal for a flier. Chord of Calling to find an end game creature. Sword of Body and Mind make a 1/1 flier a 3/3 that does things.

@CelineT good point. I'll take out Academy Rector (I should probably also remove Debtors' Knell, but on the ohter hand: fun stuff).

i would absolutely cut the Orzhov Signets and Birds of Paradises for more lands. other cards to consider: Mortify, Lingering Souls, Inquisition of Kozilek, Gideon, Ally of Zendikar. and yeah the Sorin, Solemn Visitor is better than that other one.

Hey thx. I test tonight at fnm the hand disruption. I change the 3 Watchwolf against 3 Kitchen Finks and the 2 Selesnya Charm against 2 Eerie Interlude for main. In Side i change 2 Lingering Souls against 2Flickerwisp to trigger the Kitchen Finks and the 2 Dryad Militant against 2 Duress . I think i have to test some cards.

catrule3564 on Mono Black Aggro in Modern?

Bile Blight isn't the greatest removal, although it can clear up Lingering Souls tokens better than other black removal. The new Fatal Push can kill most things that Bile Blight can, even without revolt. It also hits Tarmogoyf, which Bile blight doesn't often match up well against. You could throw in some fetches to trigger revolt and make it even better.

I also second the suggestion of Dark Confidant. It is just much better than Sign in Blood in nearly all cases.

I like your list in general. I think mono-black has a lot of potential.
