Ob Nixilis, the Hate-Twisted Discussion

If you're in grixis, its probably better to go for controlling the game until you can land the combo rather than ramping up into the combo. Although this combo seems really hard to pull off, there are definitely ways to improve it.

You could try going for a reanimator build: Izzet Charm discarding a Vilis, then reanimating it and giving it to your opponent with Role Reversal or Harmless Offering (second one is more narrow, but it works even if your opponent has no creatures). Instead of Ob Nixilis, the Hate-Twisted, you can also use Underworld Dreams or Fate Unraveler (I see you already have Kederekt Parasite in maybeboard but the only red permanent you have is Nicol Bolas so its not great)

Lord_Olga off the bat just the fact that this one costs more than Slaughterhouse I would say buy Slaughter. As for additions for the deck, I would say Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur would be a great addition. The fact that you draw 7 and that the opponents hand size is reduced to 0 means that they never really get the chance to play many spells and are discarding even more cards. Of course the drawback is his mana cost. I would only include 1 in the deck if you do include him, and would suggest ways to pump mana such as Irencrag Feat or Dark Ritual. In a tri color deck I would recommend adding at least 2 Chromatic Lantern just to help with mana problems. Ob Nixilis, the Hate-Twisted might be a decent card as well.

Ob Nixilis, the Hate-Twisted is an interesting upgrade choice, but I think it's too slow for today's metagame, but if you fun him, put him into the sideboard.

Even if Fiend Artisan is a strange and cool card, I'm not sure it's for this deck. Fiend Artisan is for mill decks (or similar) and isn't the best card to put into a devotion list. I'll get no bigger before it gets cut down.

If you want to go heavier into mono-black devotion, I'd find a way to add Cauldron Familiar and Witch's Oven to your deck.

So you were saying one of the key cards was Underworld Dreams. If, if you're trying to push that mechanic, I'd throw in an Ob Nixilis, the Hate-Twisted. Doubles as removal.
