One card I really love is Bloodgift Demon since it's a Phyrexian Arena slapped on a 5/4 flyer

One of my favorite cards in mono black is Vampire Nighthawk. I would play four because its so versatile. Might help you with offsetting some of the cost of cards like Phyrexian Arena and/or Necropotence if you decide to run that card. I think I might run two Necropotence/Phyrexian Arena if you had the option, just for a more consistent chance at drawing it.

Vampire's Bite is also a nice card to get some life link for the turn. Eternal Thirst is pretty cool too.

As far as cuts, I would say Sol Ring, Aether Vial and Spinning Darkness would be my first ones just because you only have 1 of each. How often do you find yourself in need of that mana when you are running twenty lands and the four dark rituals?

In edh(?) you can run all three! Can never have too much card draw

If you're running a strong graveyard theme; Necropotence may hurt since it discards into exile

If you're running a lot of high cmc spells; Dark Confidant might beat you up a bit

I run Phyrexian Arena in all my decks that have /x

In a real application which one would be better: Necropotence, Phyrexian Arena or Dark Confidant? What should i consider when choosing between them?

This can hardly be considered competitive deck, but nevertheless it can be fun to play. Some stuff to bet you going that should be here. Buried Alive, Phyrexian Arena, Mesmeric Orb, Reanimate

Looks fun. You may want to reconsider Crypt Ghast as you're in 3 colors and he might not be that reliable. If you do keep him you might want to grab Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Cabal Coffers. Chalice of Life  Flip looks fun, You may want to throw in Fatestitcher to help you use it more (also Fatestitcher is just very versatile. You ahve enough Artifact ramp/fixing with the signets and Chromatic Lantern, you could easily cut Darksteel Ingot and Pristine Talisman. You have a lot of ways to gain life, but you might want a few cards that let you spend it like Toxic Deluge, Phyrexian Arena, or Necropotence
