Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx Discussion

Its a cute idea, but you can definitely refine this a bit. With such a high average cmc, there are going to be a lot of dead hands where you cannot make any impactful plays until turn 5 or so. Against many decks, you will be dead by then. Once you do get Platinum Angel out, you also don't really have an efficient way of protecting Platinum Angel once she does hit the table.
So if you want to get Platinum Angel out asap and then protect it, you might benefit from these cards.
To help get Platinum Angel out asap: Madcap Experiment, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Unburial Rites, Polymorph, Urza's Mine + Urza's Power Plant + Urza's Tower, Elvish Piper, Quicksilver Amulet, and Master Transmuter.
There are other ways to do these things, but these are the cards that immediately came to mind. Some of them may also be more expensive than others. So my next questions are: What is your budget? Do you want to stay mono black? Did any of those above cards pique your interest?

Goblin Rabblemaster, Metallic Mimic, Obelisk of Urd, Goblinslide, Stoneforge Masterwork, Door of Destinies, Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Chaos Warp, Cavern of Souls, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Homeward Path, Dormant Volcano, Smoldering Crater, High Market, Ruby Medallion, Thaumatic Compass Flip, Buried Ruin, Sea Gate Wreckage, Field of Ruin are some ideas to flesh things out a bit! +1
Keep in mind you can include cards you want but dont have (due to financial constraints) as a way to test them out and see if theyre even worth buying. To keep track you can also include them in the acquire portion (where you can decide whether Card is being put main or side or maybe board) that only you can see, and periodically you can click them to see the TCGPlayer price. Just a thought, I also sometimes put cards I dont own in mainboard (to playtest and avoid repeat suggestions) as well as maybeboard and in description note that cards in both spots arent yet owned.

I really like the idea of running Blood Clock here to reuse etb effects, but it feels like opponents could abuse it pretty easily. Maybe Erratic Portal would be better? In addition, Sorin Markov is another great way to reduce your opponent's life total so you can kill them with Maga. Finally, you have a ton of nonbasics for a deck with swamp doublers. I would probably cut some of them for swamps so your Gauntlet of Power/Extraplanar Lens work better. In addition, Expedition Map is a must to let you tutor up Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx or Cabal Coffers.

So to be honest, you deck just seems thrown together and I'm guessing this is why you haven't had any comments. I can't see any great win con with it unless you're hoping to overload your opponent with creatures (which looks doubtful). At first glance, it seems like you have way too many lands for a dual color deck. I would bring your land count down to 35. Also, I don't know if you're just trying to save money, but I can offer a few suggestions for many ramp:Sol Ring Caged Sun Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx Extraplanar Lens Temple of the False God Worn Powerstone.
I have some other ideas on other things, but I have to run and will comment on them later. If you have time, please make a comment on one of my decks.

oh i almost forgot. using Thespian's Stage to copy a Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is pointless. when it becomes a copy, it becomes legendary as well. not to mention that the ability requires it to tap, which means it won't be able to use the mana-ability it gains from becoming a copy of nykthos in the same turn. just take the Thespian's Stage out for a 4th nykthos.

its a cool start! if possible i would switch the Bone Splinters for Fatal Push. yes they are more expensive on paper but you know have an instant that is a more versatile. if you have one more Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx it might help if you put it in the deck just to help with drawing it. i like sheoldred but her cost is so high much like Griselbrand i don't know that you'll be using them unless you're getting your devotion high and using Nykthos to help get them out on the field. have you considered Sidisi, Undead Vizier for her tutor ability? she has a good body with deathtouch and can tutor for the cost of saccing one of your guys and help you find your flails, obliterators or whatever you may need. one more Gray Merchant of Asphodel! either way, you're on to something. i playtested and this would be scary. just streamline it a bit. i'd hate to play against it when it's done! +1
