Megrim, just isn't that efficient, if you want the Megrim effect I'd suggest Liliana's Caress as there is a big difference between two mana and three. Mind Rot, his a similar issue, I'd suggest Tasigur's Cruelty or Delirium Skeins as an alternative. I also rather like Blackmail and Mire's Toll in discard decks, since both have the ability to hit lands. An alternative finisher might help too; Torment of Hailfire or Rakdos's Return would potentially fit. Norn's Annex isn't Ensnaring Bridge but it could fill a similar role, even at the cost of 4 life it probably saves you more than that in damage. Hope this is of some help, good luck brewing your deck.

Some pointers...

Liliana's Caress is a strictly better Megrim, since it costs 1 less to cast.

Augur of Skulls (2 cards), Pilfering Imp (evasion / repeatable), Black Cat (random) and Rotting Rats (2 shots) are better discard creatures, however if you want to keep the rat theme you should run Pack Rat.

Inquisition of Kozilek, Blackmail, Mire's Toll and Vicious Rumors are solid additions, better than Despise / Duress.

Funeral Charm is one of the few ways to force discard at instant speed.

Hope this helps, good luck and have fun brewing your deck.

I have a very similar deck Sweet (black) devotion, the biggest difference being I've dropped Bloodghast in favour of Relentless Dead and am using Imp's Mischief to protect my stuff. I'm also a fan of Mire's Toll in a mono-black deck. Hopefully this helps you out, have fun brewing your deck.

Budget doesn't need to be bad and some of your card choices here are just bad, particularly Insatiable Harpy, which should be Vampire Nighthawk or Gifted Aetherborn. Squelching Leeches is also marginal, Dread Shade, Desecration Demon or even Korlash, Heir to Blackblade would be better choices. Given the number of creatures you are running Throne of the God-Pharaoh might work, also since you are mono black Mire's Toll and Soot Imp might be worth a shot. I occasionally run a devotion deck Sweet (black) devotion, which might give you some ideas, though it definately isn't budget.

If you simply want to build a lifegain/drain deck, I'd look at cards like Sovereign's Bite, Alms of the Vein, Rite of Consumption and maybe Chancellor of the Dross. Also have a look at Mono black deckbuilder's toolbox, this is a list of the major black cards for modern. I hope this is of some help, good luck with your brew.

Thanks for the suggestions! I have the Nyxathids and have tested them to find them pretty good and fun until it's them vs my smallpox. My original list runs 4x Vicious Rumors. That card is straight gas! It ditches 2 cards and drains 1 for 1 mana. Super overpowered in my opinion. I would rather be doing multiple things a turn than casting one Necrogen Mists. Mire's Toll is neat, haven't considered that. Blackmail was in my original list in place of the Thoughtseize because i didn't have any. I think it's worth a 2x in the main though. The ability to pull lands is just fantastic.

As a stop gap for Liliana of the Veil, you could try Necrogen Mists. I'd also suggest Mire's Toll or Blackmail, rather than Thoughtseize as the life loss will hurt, and Bojuka Bog, as there are a lot of graveyard based decks in modern. You could also test Vicious Rumors, which is new to the field.

I'd suggest Whispers of Emrakul and Creeping Chill if you were running Dakmor Salvage, but in your present setup you aren't, note that this pairs well with Raven's Crime. As an alternative win condition Nyxathid might be worth considering...

Mutavault isn't terribly expensive and a big upgrade.

Extirpate seems really bad, mainboard. You could add in a couple Blackmail or Mire's Toll instead.

Thank you jgc10. I like the recommendation of Grasp of Darkness! I have taken to heart the concept of targeted removal for this deck and think that Grasp of Darkness is better than Geth's Verdict for this deck.

I actually love Raven's Crime in opening hands because of the Retrace ability. It helps you play lands as additional discard cards, which is vital because you need extra lands when playing smallpox, and together those cards allow you to cull out lands when you draw to many, that way you don't run out of lands either. I think the land management ability is a key reason why Raven's Crime is so common in professional 8-Rack decks.

I understand your concern about untargeted discard cards. In this particular budget deck I love the untargeted discard and intend to follow up by turn 2 or 3 with Blackmail or Mire's Toll to remove any specific card that is still a problem. I've found that I can't afford Thoughtseize and Inquisition of Kozilek. Also if all your opponent has in hand is a land card, every discard card in this deck will remove it from the opponents hand, increasing the reliability of The Rack and Shrieking Affliction.

This deck has taken a turn towards more low cmc discard and removal cards since I created it. Please let me know your thoughts on the deck now with the changes.
