Midnight Reaper would be good for card draw. Tithe Taker wouldn't be a bad addition to slow down control a bit. Seraph of the Scales might not be bad. Mortify and maybe The Eldest Reborn could have some merit as well. If nothing else I think Midnight Reaper would be the best addition.

Something else for consideration: Elenda, the Dusk Rose . It's easy to get her big when you sacrifice your own guys, and then you can sacrifice her for a nice payoff as well. I'm running her as a 4x in my Mardu Aristocrats deck on arena (which admittedly is less aggro than your version), and she is absolutely stellar.
Also might I recommend Mortify at least as a sideboard option? With Search for Azcanta Flip and Experimental Frenzy still very relevant, Wilderness Reclamation and Rhythm of the Wild promising to be very big threats, and Theater of Horrors also showing some promise, enchantment removal will be a very useful thing to have handy

First of all, I must say that this seems like a pretty cool deck! I am also super hyped for an Aristocrats deck I want to build with the new set. The build I'm going for is much more Aggro, with quite a lot of recursion for a normal Aggro deck. You can check it out here if you want! :D
I like a lot your idea though, you seem much more able to abuse the token generators. Compared to the version I'm considering, this deck can't be as explosive, but it seems it has a much better late game than my version.
However, there's a couple suggestions I want to make in case it might be better for this version. I think Priest of the Forgotten Gods will be an all-star in Aristocrats. Yes, two creatures is a lot to sacrifice, but it enables so much! You make them sac a creature, you add two black mana and you draw a card! You could easily sac the Reassembling Skeleton and a token, for example, and use the black mana to bring back the skeleton. If you have Teysa on the field, and sac creatures with Afterlife, you get as little as four tokens! Or ping four times with Judith! Those two last examples are a bit Christmaslandy, but I think the Priest is one of the best sac outlets in the new set. I was proxy testing with a friend, and sometimes it's just absurd!
Also, despite the presence of both Lava Coil and Vraska's Contempt , I encourage you to include more Seraph of the Scales . If they try to exile it, you could sacrifice it to Pitiless Pontiff , to the Priest if you end up including it, or even to some cheap removal such as Final Payment or Vicious Offering (in case you face indestructible creatures in your meta). I only have two in my list, but I try to keep it more low on CMC. And still I might include another one! haha
Finally, I would definitely include some removal Mainboard, either Mortify or Bedevil in your sideboard are great cards (although Mortify is sometimes easier to cast). Oh! And Hunted Witness or Legion's Landing Flip might be nice includes, just because they fit on the curve and are pretty good cards on their own.
Well, that's basically it! I'm sorry for such a long comment I wrote ^^' In general, I would say it looks like a pretty cool list. Good luck and have fun brewing!

The Demon of Catastrophes was in here for the very early versions of the deck, but it was a bit heavy on the 4-drop slot. Instead I opted for more bait for the sac outlets. But you talked me back into it! I think I can see cutting 1x Bedevil and 1x Revival / Revenge (specially having Mortify in the sideboard)
Thanks a lot for commenting and the suggestion! :D

BW control generally involves discard spells. You can get some good ones with Duress , Despise , and Castigate . If your friends play mostly creatures, then Harsh Scrutiny is good too. Hymn to Tourach is relatively cheap, but it's very very very very strong, play it at your own risk of creating an arms race between you and your playgroup.
Healer's Hawk is definitely more of an aggro card, if you want an effect like that, I would recommend Vampire Nighthawk . Obzedat, Ghost Council is incredibly strong, as is Blood Baron of Vizkopa . Vona, Butcher of Magan is incredible too.
I love merciless eviction, but you should really only run one, I would recommend you play some copies of Day of Judgment , Languish , Wrath of God , and Ritual of Soot to get those wraths earlier and keep the board clear.
I cannot recommend enough some Isolated Chapel s, Temple of Silence , Concealed Courtyard s, Shambling Vent s, and Caves of Koilos . Fetid Heath has recently plummeted in price as well, but I don't know your budget.
You'll definitely want some card draw to refill your hand too. In these colors it comes at the cost of life, for the most part. My personal favorites in casual decks are Twilight Prophet , but she is ridiculously expensive, and Kaya, Ghost Assassin . Arguel's Blood Fast Flip, Phyrexian Arena , Greed , Sign in Blood , Night's Whisper , Damnable Pact , Dark Bargain , Read the Bones , and Midnight Oil .
Hope this was at least a little helpful!

Hey I think you have a lot of 4 drops. I think Hunted Witness , Mortify , Resplendent Angel , Lyra Dawnbringer , Militia Bugler , Fungal Infection all might be worth consideration to help this deck curve a bit. Cheers :)

GoneGold Thanks for the comment and suggestion. This version is kinda the beta version. We still dont dont know which decks are going to be tier 1. I've definitely considered adding Mortify. The sideboard is still a work in progress, but if Wilderness Reclamation decks become a real threat I would for sure add some to the sideboard, even mainboard.

Nice, Seraph of the Scales is a welcome addition to this deck! I would say probably cut the Carnival // Carnage for a couple Bedevil. Between that and Mortify, you have pretty much every permanent type covered!
