Night of Souls' Betrayal Discussion

I'm loving the idea, have you considered Marrow Shards/Rain of Blades/Thunderstaff? Its a little faster than secure the wastes for trading, although it can't handle swan song/pongify. Black has access to the terrifying Night of Souls' Betrayal which would make this really kick butt, and give Esper Charm and Flaying Tendrils access, but that makes the mana tricky. Palace Guard has potential, but I'd rather see some Condemn as spot removal. Darksteel Mutation also exists, but grants indestructable. Searing Light exists, but i'm feeling like that would trade poorly compared to Arrow Volley Trap.Blade Splicer, Attended Knight and Precinct Captain would all trade well and provide a stronger creature base should you desire it.
All told, I really like the idea and list.

I havent been playing rack for long but I'm running a nearly monoblack deck and decided to splash white for sideboarding (i have no maindeck white cards) with things like Concealed Courtyard and Godless Shrine. Might be a bit harder to do in a budget version but the reason i chose to do it, is it gives me more flexibility and as was previously stated, gives an out to Leyline of Sanctity. Anyways, this is what my rack sideboard looks like.
3x Death's Shadow (for decks where discard isn't useful or i think my life will go down fast. You might not be able to use this as well as you don't run fetches or thoughtseize)
2x Disenchant (deals with pesky cards i couldn't otherwise deal with like leyline)
1x Flaying Tendrils (for decks that have a lot of little creatures)
1x Fragmentize (deals with pesky cards i couldn't otherwise deal with like leyline)
2x Fulminator Mage (for tron)
1x Leyline of the Void (for graveyard based decks)
2x Lingering Souls (efficient chump blockers that can also attack if needed. also i can easily discard them to my own smallpox or liliana)
1x Night of Souls' Betrayal (for decks that have a lot of little creatures)
2x Relic of Progenitus (for graveyard based decks)
I know it's not entirely budget, but it might help you think of what kinds of cards to consider and what decks you might need an answer to.

Ascendant Evincar and Night of Souls' Betrayal help make sure your opponents can't keep their birds or other small creatures. Though you may want to add some one sided +/+ effects if you use those. Jace, Unraveler of Secrets ult is slow to get to but works great with Guile, Nullstone Gargoyle also great with guile. Rule of Law is a solid way to lock a game down with unraveler or a partial lock with some of the other things.

Thank you for the feedback, Elmoisamac! It is greatly appreciated. I'm not sure how important having the Elvish Champion +1/+1 on my creatures at all times would be, the only example I can think of is against Zealous Persecution and Night of Souls' Betrayal, and the ability to regenerate (from Ezuri, Renegade Leader) is nice in other situations. Forestwalk is nice, but it's less universally effective than trample.

- Virulent Plague -> looks better to me then Night of Souls' Betrayal or Illness in the Ranks
- Nyxathid -> looks better to me then Hunted Horror
Asylum Visitor is nice, but I can't find any spot to remove something on mainboard for it though. Quest for the Nihil Stone was in there in my first version, but I think The Rack and Liliana's Caress are more potent.

Alwayz a +1 for deck that run Dash Hopes
Somes suggestions for ya, take what you want:
Deathmark against those color
Asylum Visitor for grindy game, to draw more
Quest for the Nihil Stone which may be a dead draw late game
- Also, if they sideboard out all their removal, maybe some Pack Rat can be fun
