@SigmaLamda747, I have not real reason for the amount of lands, I'll check other mono black decks to see how much they run and adjust it.
@SSJ_Weegee, I don't get how Necropotence works, I'll check it out! Gray Merchant of Asphodel sounds good and yeah I'll include Sheoldred, Whispering One asap.I'll try the other 2 also if I feel like I can spend extra life!
@both, Good call on Platinum Emperion, he was there because I used him in my now dismantled legacy reanimator deck, thanks for the help!

Necropotence is AMAZING in commander. If you're playing any card in mono black, it should be that.
I would consider Sheoldred, Whispering One for this deck for the constant recursion/sac loop with Gisa, but you'll probably get targeted quickly because of the sacing your opponents have to do.
I would also take the advice of the above comment and remove Platinum Emperion. It'll attract a lot of unnecessary hate and no-bos with some of your cards.
Nice deck overall though. You have a decent curve, good amount of mana rocks, and a honed strategy. +1

Do you really need 40 lands? That sounds like WAY too many lands for a mono-color EDH deck.
Also, some of your cards will counteract each other (specifically, Platinum Emperion means you can't play Phyrexian Reclamation if Emperion is already on the battlefield. Same with Strands of Night). On that note, I'm not sure Platinum Emperion adds anything to your deck except CMC. Same with Ghoulcaller's Bell, your goal is to take advantage of sacrificing your creatures and this card takes them directly out of your hand, forcing you to retrieve them from the graveyard first.

well Wall of Omens would help smooth out my curve since I don't have enough 2 drops, so that's definitely something to consider. I feel like the "stop them" side of the deck is already pretty good. I did cut the Anger of the Gods recently so it might be weak to certain things like Eldrazi tokens or some random thopter deck or something, but with 8 targeted discards I can probably strip their hand of problem cards a good percentage of the time anyways.
I think it's a good idea and it works in the build, interesting to see a guy across the world come up with the same deck plan. I don't know if I'm convinced I need it though. The Platinum Emperion brick walls a lot of aggressive strategies, leaving them dead in the water until they topdeck a Path to Exile. It just seems hard to find 4 more slots when I've already shaved so many other places (3 Thoughtseize and Inquisition of Kozilek instead of 4, no more maindeck Anger of the Gods, etc.). I'm not convinced Liliana of the Veil is "bad" here either, certainly less good than in some decks but still good against control and at least an expensive removal spell against aggro.

Master Transmuter is also a nice way to cheat out a Blightsteel Colossus.
You could possibly run Sphinx's Herald if the 8 cmc is too much, but Herald also involves sacking stuff.
I saw Thopter-Sword in there, and sort of assumed that you wanted combos, so here goes nothing:
