with your current lands, Korlash, Heir to Blackblade is entirely useless. korlash is best in a deck where most, if not all, of the lands are swamps. same deal with Nightmare, and Squelching Leeches, but those 2 aren't modern viable regardless. not to be mean, but it kinda boggles my mind how you could read "swamps" and think to yourself "almost all my lands should be basic forests". Overgrown Tomb exists you know.
you don't run enough lands and mana ramp to be using all those cmc 4+ cards. land search does not equal land ramp, and the little ramp you do have has a high cmc of its own.

Cool deck! I feel like you always want Noxious Gearhulk over Nightmare - your entire deck is focused around dwindling your opponent's resources. The Gearhulk deals with the threats your opponents manage to stick through your discard. While it won't be as big as a Nightmare, I think it will win you more games due to removal/lifegain. It's worth noting it also is a 5-power menace, which will realistically end the game just as well as an 8/8-9/9 flyer.
Also, I don't know what your budget looks like, but you should really play Fatal Push if you're in black - its price is only going to go up from here, you may as well get your playset asap ;). If you manage to get ahold of some, I would cut Cartouche of Ambition (too low impact) and Cruel Reality (too expensive for too low of an impact on turn 7+).

Far out Mandalorian! Thank you so much! This is a huge help, I was struggling but with this i should be able to get this deck flowing magnificently. I was kind of just expecting a sentence or two of advice and a few card recommendations but you really put in to help me get this deck running. Cheers!
Some of the cards you mentioned I already have (such as Mutilate, Grey Merchant of Asphodel, Duress, and Nightmares pouring out of my ears) but I dis-included them here just because I was using this list to decide what cards to buy.
Some others like Liliana's Caress, Hymn to Tourach, and Shrieking Affliction (I do have one of these but wanted more), I kept out either because the seller didn't have them or I left out to cut costs a bit. (Liliana's Caress is $8 ea! Why I went for Raiders' Wake instead, though it's CMC is higher)
And then there's those cards like Zombie Infestation, The Rack, Waste Not (far out that card is good) and Faith of the Devoted that I somehow never found when researching discard cards and now I feel I must hunt down these cards right away.
I also now totally see what you mean with Brain in a Jar, Tempt with Immortality, and Blood Tribute. Especially Tempt with Immortality I never even realised I was giving their discards back facepalm. Though I've already ordered those cards they'll fit fine in other decks I own so no issue being rid of them.
I was also wondering what's your opinion on adding some cards I already own such as Consume the Meek, Pestilence Demon (Mono-black can work wonders with him, tho it can also obviously be a detriment), Liliana's Reaver, Jar of Eyeballs, Wight of Precinct Six, and Crypt Incursion. Although Crypt Incursion could result in lofty amount of life, it also kind of ruins the synergy of cards like Guiltfeeder but in the other hand denies possibilities of opponent's getting their cards back and could even make Tempt with Immortality more viable.
Another thing I was worried about was that besides Creeping Dread I don't have much consistent opponent discard sources. I did originally consider Cao Cao, Lord of Wei but my seller didn't have it and I do prefer to avoid spending $5 on one card (there are exceptions of course). Other than that I just thought of adding more discard spells like more Mind Shatters, and now, adding a few Unnerves. I do own heaps of Mind Rots but they down seem very CMC efficient. Also adding some of these cards (which I plan to do) will return my issue of deck size. What do you think I could replace? What's worth keeping? What doesn't contribute enough to warrant keeping?
Sorry I feel like I almost just wrote an essay question for you to answer, but I feel as though you probably enjoy this stuff ;P
Again, thanks soo much for your assistance, this is the first deck I've made that I'm trying to make perfect so I really appreciate the help in getting it there. Cheers!!

Here are some more fun ways to make your opponents discard cards and lose life. You mentioned that you just play with your friends, if you play multiplayer games then the cards that say each opponent are especially powerful-
Other good Mono stuff
Underworld Connections can help refill your hand while emptying your opponents
Hope this helps trim and focus the deck a bit more and gives you some more ideas to brew with!
