I tested Pain Seer against Grim Flayer a lot, and while it doesn't give you the raw advantage that Bob gives you, it can set up your deck to where youre always drawing what you want, and it just gets really hard to handle once it starts being a 4/4 for 2

I think that's a fun idea to explore. I worry Garrison just won't be a good as Harvester in most scenarios. Harvester costs the same, has flying and sometimes lifelink, an extra bit of toughness, and crews for the bare minimum. Garrison and Pain Seer would be amusing in a more casual build. Thanks!

Some good cards that mono black usually like are Dark Confidant, Pain Seer, Gifted Aetherborn, Geralf's Messenger, Gray Merchant of Asphodel, Dismember, Victim of Night, Sign in Blood. Depends what you want to do with the deck.
You could become creature based devotion with a finisher of Gray Merchant of Asphodel
You'd need to give more direction on what you want to do with the deck, or what cards you like, what budget you have, before I can criteque any more.

@ArcticJohn I would say Grim Haruspex definitely fits the theme better and may work better in this deck. Asylum Visitor may be a better overall card though. And I am skeptical of Pain Seer a little bit. I don't think there will be too many opportunities to attack with it. I rarely attack with Dark Confidant unless the board is all clear or I want it to die. Our other attackers all have some type of evasion or are available to return from the graveyard if the got blocked and die. Plus you wouldn't be drawing until at least turn 4 and that is only if it survives its attack. With Grim Haruspex a lot of times you will be able to play it and sacrifice something immediately or in response to them killing the Haruspex. You will be at least drawing something off of it.
