Some more possibilities Witch's Cottage for Hemwick Charnel Lane. Then Bogbrew Witch or Chittering Witch as the Witch of Hemwick.

Maybe Scrounger of Souls or Phyrexian Obliterator as the Blood Starved Beast.

Brago, King Eternal as the Martyr Logarius? Unfortunately I couldn't really think of many fitting magic cards with Scythes being the feature.

Phyrexian Obliterator is such a cool card! Nice Deck!

Have you thought about Collective Brutality in the sideboard for Burn?

TypicalTimmy hot garbage in the wrong deck set-up. This Demon is a badass, I mean just him with Toxic Deluge wipes the board then draw a shitload of cards. What was his thought after he played with him?

I really wish Sorin Markov was a cheaper cmc. That life total change just is too good.

Phyrexian Obliterator I really like this card and have wondered if it would work in this deck. It is good in K'rrik decks but this one is iffy. I mean the trample is great, so i could pump with shade and trample right thru.

Ah, fellow Vilis, Broker of Blood admirer. I swear this Demon is underrated. I told my best friend all about him and how awesome he is, and my friend insisted he is hot garbage.

Then he played a deck that runs him as the Commander. Went 3-0.

I'd love to recommend Phyrexian Obliterator , but I see what you are doing and he doesn't jive with your gameplan. However, I have two more suggestions;

Sorin Markov and Erebos, God of the Dead .

Hi, I've run mono black decks in modern for a long while- there are a few great budget lists out there, but there are a few 'key styles' to be aware of. There are more than a few lists out on the site.

Style 1 - Mono black devotion, the most expensive, competitive version. You use Geralf's Messenger and Phyrexian Obliterator with gary to nuke your opponent. Go look up primers, and see what the recent tournament results are if this appeals.

Style two - Tribal. Cordial Vampire and Indulgent Aristocrat let you run a swarm of low-cost lifelink vampires, giving you great burn and creatures matchups in exchange for weakness to combo/control. A good disruption package will offset most problems. Similarly, there is a value zombies list out there built around Relentless Dead .

Style three 'the rack'. Competitive variants can get expensive, but things like Delirium Skeins are cheap and effective- discard rarely works badly with Shrieking Affliction .

Style four 'value res'. Unearth , whip, draw/discard, cards that make value when they hit the battlefield. Its a little easily disrupted by the current meta, and usually just plays as a budget devotion deck. There are a few janky cards that pretend to be Smallpox and work well in this list.

Past that, there are the hybrid weird stuff decks and offbeat combos Sanguine Bond / Exquisite Blood , Korlash, Heir to Blackblade / Lashwrithe etc. All of them work if you just keep an eye on hand disruption and play to the local meta, but won't hold up in tournament land. If you are looking to spend money, focus on key 1 or 2 mana cards- Collective Brutality , Fatal Push , Thoughtseize , Inquisition of Kozilek etc.

If I can offer advice- if there looks to be a pioneer playerbase shaping up, look to play in that format. It should be cheap as cards rotate out of standard, and is far less likely to mandate insanely expensive cards. In a few weeks the most opressive combos will be banned (and likely things like Thoughtseize and oko). Since the most recently printed creatures are strongest, while mostly older spells are strongest, lean into that with card selection.
