I have always thought giving Phyrexian Obliterator the Inquisitor's Flail could be absurd and obnoxious. Not to mention a lot of fun for you. (:

Most midrange B/G decks do well with Gray Merchant of Asphodel because he pairs well with Phyrexian Obliterator. Also if you feel like you're having trouble keeping a hand size you could play around with Underworld Connections

Black Thorn Gorgon
Legendary Creature - Gorgon
You may have Black Thorn Gorgon assign its combat damage as though it weren't blocked.

: Regenerate Black Thorn Gorgon
, Exile Black Thorn Gorgon from your graveyard: Create a token that's a copy of Black Thorn Gorgon, except it's an Artifact. Remove all poison counters from target player and put a number of +1/+1 counters on it equal to the number of poison counters removed this way.

Let's see a color-shifted Phyrexian Obliterator with an appropriate side effect for the chosen color.

Thanks for posting your list 6ixer, I like it! Seems very focused. I know most other people don't run Bloodghasts, but I'm too attached to them to not include them. I also like Bedlam Reveler, but since I'm running more black, I've chosen Phyrexian Obliterator instead. You also may want to consider Hazoret the Fervent, it would fit your build well.

Damn that Wonder is a spicy include, I totally overlooked it before and I absolutely need one for now.

Living Death has put up results when I played it since I aim to have as many creatures in the yard as I can, which usually ends up being far more than any of our opponents, sometimes even more than them combined. Don't forget a lot of our creatures come in with EtB kill abilities, so consider this is on our turn we can arrange the stack as we want, meaning we can have those creatures go off first. Having a Phyrexian Obliterator, Duplicant, Hostage Taker, and Overseer of the Damned come in and wipe the 4 biggest threats on the board really makes Living Death more viable than you'd think, and with cards like Buried Alive you can pick and choose what you want on your board after the LD. Plus, you can always rip problem cards out early using SG's ability. Your meta might be more creature-heavy though, so be careful if so.

Keep running that Zombie Apocalypse btw if you like it. EDH is the flavor over function format and it's not a bad card at all, especially if you're running as many zombies as you are. My build barely runs any zombies at this point so I saw no success with it, but that card has a ridiculously high ceiling in a deck like this so have fun with it.

I hear you on the Cabal Coffers thing btw. I wanted one for a long time when I first got back into the game, but the more I play it the more I realize how much it sucks for me outside of mono decks. Crypt of Agadeem is where it's at and I'm happy to see it in this list.

So yeah, def like where this is going. Got some real spicy includes with cards like Training Grounds (which I want but am too cheap for after finishing off my modern decks) and Curse of the Bloody Tome which I'm gonna find some ways to add in. Really digging this list though, looks great.

Thank you SirupyTuna, I came across a few Phyrexian Obliterators which is what gave me the inspiration for the deck. After playing a few rounds with Thing in the Ice  Flip I really wanted to use it in a few other decks so I made this blue control deck which also uses the Thing in the Ice  Flip flip mechanic, almost more successfully. I would love to get your thoughts on it!

I have playsets of Thing in the Ice  Flip and Spellskite sitting around and thought I would entertain the idea of a horror deck. I came across this one in my search for inspiration. Unfortunately I won't be forking over a small fortune for a set of Phyrexian Obliterator, so I'll have to think of something more budget friendly. I really like the synergy with Hex Parasite, though. Nice touch!

Squelching Leeches and Nightmare are both pretty bad cards. Their effect isn't that strong, and you can get better things for that amount of mana. Might I suggest you go the Devotion route with Grey Merchant of Asphodel, Dread Shade, Gifted Aetherborn, Geralf's Messenger, and Vampire Cutthroat. If budget is not an issue, Phyrexian Obliterator...all day, every day. If it is, then Desecration Demon is an amazing choice.

I would also change your tags. They're very misleading. You have "Casual" AND "Competitive" in there, when this deck is nowhere close to being able to compete in a competitive format. If you want it to be aggro then you really need to lower the average mana cost of the deck. Aggressive decks win by turn five at the VERY latest, and this deck isn't doing that. It's also not a dragons deck, nor is it Suicide Black. Suicide Black revolves around a card called Death's Shadow or Asylum Visitor. Basically they win as quickly as possible without putting up any defenses.
