Very well. Here goes;

First and foremost, mana is very important. Your calculation is spot on. However, the & need a little bit of tuning. The base could go down slightly, while elevating your sources due to necessity. So, for example - Hinterland Harbor could become Blooming Marsh. Also, for your off color fetchlands (I know that they serve their purpose), if possible, try to make trades for Polluted Delta. It would seriously make all the difference. On another note; man lands are extremely useful in midrange/control shells. I know that Creeping Tar Pit is slightly expensive, but Lumbering Falls is a decent replacement, along with Treetop Village. The choice is yours regarding those two.

Now, as for actual meat & bones, I would start with the creature selection. I know that Snapcaster Mage is expensive, but Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip is a great substitute. the only drawbackis that Jace does not have Flash, however, Jace has reoccurring card selection and may or may not grant better draws.

Also, Scavenging Ooze is a very nice inclusion and gets larger with time, while helping out against weaker matchups, i.e. burn, dredge.

So for creature changes, in my humble opinion - I would do something like this:

4x Grim Flayer

2x Scavenging Ooze

2x Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip

1x Hangarback Walker

1x Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet

2x Tasigur, the Golden Fang

Now, onto non-creature spells. Personally, removing Seasons Past, Disdainful Stroke, Disallow, and other clunkier spells would intensify this decks pressure aspect. I would also work on finding a way to trade or save up for some allotment of Assassin's Trophy. The card does what Abrupt Decay cannot when necessary. Allow me to make a suggestion;

-2x Disallow

-2x Spell Pierce

-1x Seasons Past

-1x Disdainful Stroke

-3x Serum Visions

For

+2x Mana Leak and or Deprive

+2x Stubborn Denial acts as a better Spell Pierce.

+1x Cast Down Hits Tron creatures and big bodies that Push cannot.

+4x Mishra's Bauble and or Unbridled Growth for Delirium purposes.

For Planeswalkers:

-2x Jace, Unraveler of Secrets

-1x Jace, Memory Adept

these two Jaces just do not apply enough pressure/concern for their mana investment.

for any of these as you see fit

+(x) Ob Nixilis Reignited

+(x) Jace, Architect of Thought

+(x) Jace Beleren

+(x) Nissa, Steward of Elements

Personally, I would vouch for at least 1x Jace, Architect of Thought and 1x Nissa, Steward of Elements.

I hope that this assists you in your journey to build . feel free to pick my brain and pardon me for the late reply friend.

Thanks for your input - I put Dark Prophecy and Grave Pact in the Sideboard for now.

The only way of card advantage is Ob Nixilis Reignited in the mainboard and I kicked out Priest of the Blood Rite because of its high cmc.

Here are some budget black sideboard cards:

vs creatures: Disfigure, Doom Blade, Drown in Sorrow, Mutilate

vs burn: Gifted Aetherborn

vs big mana: Rain of Tears

vs graveyard: Nihil Spellbomb, Tormod's Crypt

vs combo: Memoricide

vs midrange and control: Ob Nixilis Reignited

Kaleo42 on Drawing Your Last Breath

So I notice your group's ban list is focused on the "feel bad" cards like game warping fatties and land destruction. This means your land is relatively safe and a deck focused on drawing cards can easily function on 34 or 35. I would build it with 33 but I see you want to get to a few select top end cards. I would cut these lands in order: Shinka, the Bloodsoaked Keep, Rakdos Carnarium, Izzet Boilerworks, Crosis's Catacombs, and Dimir Aqueduct.

High cost cards can be fun but it's important to balance their impact with the fact that drawing too many of them can stunt your game play. Cruel Ultimatum immediately jumps out at me as a fun card but ultimately lacking in the impact. Targeting a single player and being super heavy both in cmc and color requirements makes the risk to reward ratio not in your favor.

Jaya and Nicol Bolas both fall in a similar camp of cost outweighing their impact. Of the two a greater argument can be made for Jaya pumping out spells and drawing cards but that triple red is rough. Keep in mind the big goal here is to force draw absurd amounts of cards, each high cost and color intense spell you hit is a speed bump in that card drawing engine.

Dominus of Fealty and Thraximundar are a pretty high cost to invest into things that are off strategy. Nezahal, Primal Tide is in a similar boat but if your play group creates a need for a 7/7 uncounterable then it’s a fine inclusion. Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker is strategy adjacent but the slot can probably be put to better use. I also don’t like Guiltfeeder but I recognize that is likely do to my meta shaping my opinion of it.

Cards I would look at adding

Toxic Deluge over Flaying Tendrils for similar slot but higher power level.

Time Spiral over Time Reversal since it's lower cmc and much stronger.

Vampiric Tutor and maybe Imperial Seal would help smooth out the deck's performance.

Swiftfoot Boots are better than General's Kabuto.

Anvil of Bogardan I am surprised isn't already in here.

I would run Izzet Guildmage over Nivix Guildmage if you want the dual casting. I don't think you need the looting at that mana cost.

Waste Not does beautiful things with all the wheels on this bus. In the same vein Liliana's Caress and Megrim would be fun.

Memory Jar is another great wheel.

Psychosis Crawler is too on strategy not to include.

Sunder is great in decks like this but your group would probably ban it in a heartbeat based on your current ban list.

Reverberate, Twincast, and Dualcaster Mage can act as counterspells and double your wheels among other things.

You’re already fairly deep in artifacts so a mana rock ramp package would massively increase speed and consistency. Sol Ring, Mana Crypt, (maybe) Mana Vault, Rakdos Signet, Dimir Signet, Izzet Signet, Thought Vessel, Chrome Mox, and Mox Diamond.

Jace, the Mindsculptor, Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip, and if I am reading your meta correctly Ob Nixilis Reignited would be good walkers to include.

Vandalblast if your playgroup uses a healthy amount of artifact ramp.

Spell Pierce, Flusterstorm, Mana Drain, and Swan Song are the only counters I would recommend because I can see that’s not the direction you want to go too deep into.

Dark Ritual and Cabal Ritual are great at getting your pacing off on the right foot and Past in Flames could really tie it all together.

I can understand the first 3 cuts, but the fourth? Maybe you can explain why? Ob Nixilis Reignited's 1st ability IS Phyrexian Arena. Maybe all are right about my addiction to Paradox Engine, & yea... Jace, Architect of Thought isn't that good anyway. But... Tezzeret, Artifice Master His 1st ability creates Flying Tokens better than Bitterblossom, with a huge increase of Artifacts, his 2nd Ability is better than before; and even his Thopters can be used as fuel. His Ultimate is also like getta free card every one of your turns. Reasons why you stated him?

Demanding Dragon could be nice, Dragon's Hoard as well... I suggest you remove the assassins and the rats and add 3 Lightning Bolt instead.

Why Ob Nixilis Reignited ?

Dennis14 on Black Ramp

I think that the deck has potential but some card slots can be improved.

You've already addressed that but Liliana of the Dark Realms is a really weak PW and would be better as almost anything else be it Liliana of the Veil or Ob Nixilis Reignited.

Crypt Ghast is a very fragile ramp card and also doesn't work with Damnation being your only option of removing creatures. I'd either move Damnation to the SB or find other ramp options besides Crypt Ghast (which I'd advise anyway).

Some other mana ramp options can be:
Korlash, Heir to Blackblade, Gauntlet of Power, Hedron Archive, Gilded Lotus and also Burnished Hart/Wayfarer's Bauble and Solemn Simulacrum.

For the big finisher of the deck I'd suggest something which isn't neutralized by Path to Exile like:
Walking Ballista (which can serve as removal before going to the face), Torment of Hailfire or Profane Command/Exsanguinate/Consume Spirit.
Josu Vess, Lich Knight is a pretty good payoff as well with 9x creatures for 10-mana (but a non-bo with Damnation).

I'd also replace Diabolic Revelation (too mana hungry and win-more) with Mastermind's Acquisition which can let you tutor SB cards and keep extra win-cons in the SB so they can't get hit by discard or extraction effects.

I'd also prefer Nihil Spellbomb to Relic of Progenitus in the SB.
