I would run more single target land destruction just to single out colors, so yo can cast multiple lands per tern with your lands. I would also run land destruction that deals damage in case you are too slow whith land destruction and they get some creatures out, and also to hurry up the game and hopefully finish it. I would suggest Pain/Suffering, Choking Sands, Lava Blister, Molten Rain, Cryoclasm, Dwarven Blastminer, Dwarven Miner, Rancid Earth, Shivan Harvest, Keldon Arsonist and perhaps even Pooling Venom.

BerylLasko yeah, I thought using Spreading Seas, as well as cantrips to change the type of the lands the opponent, so I disrupt the game even more (like Convincing Mirage or Phantasmal Terrain ). About the problem of playing with B/U decks, I played with some, and it worked pretty fine (obviously, Sea's Claim and/or Evil Presence get kinda useless, but they can be switched with something on the sideboard). For UB decks, it worked even better, as I just made then play with one color or another, so the game slowed a lot and the creatures killed then.About decks with a low mana cost, if they are based on creatures, I wipe then off the board with Vapor Snag or Sigil of Sleep, and it went ok, but I still got some problems with haste decks, cause when I can take then back to their owners hand the damage is already done (when I dont have a Vapor Snag ready). Thanks for the advice, I will take some time thinking and searching more, so I might change it for better :)

you might think about Corrupted Roots and Pooling Venom in sideboard against control. because you'll want to swap out most of the creature auras since they wont be playing many creatures but they will need to tap lands of course.

Definitely Dark Ritual. It's practically like the point of mono-black. You need to cut your colorless mana land down at least in half or maybe 2/3. Tossing in all those colorless sources misses the point of a mono color deck (always having the right color) and just gives everybody else who has Wasteland something to shoot at. Maybe 2 Rishadan Port and 2 Wasteland, just 4 of one of those. Also, bump your land total up to 23, 24, or even 25. Your LD spells are all 2 and 3 CMC, so mana starving in the first 3-4 turns is pretty much the death a LD deck. I would swap the Blight for the Pooling Venom. Using Blight always annoyed me with my LD decks because it's still there, that is, your opponent gets to choose when it goes boom which can be a problem when you're trying to stay ahead of them on land.
Maybe try Cryptbreaker for mid and late game creatures. With LD you can wind up with a hand of LD spells and land, and nothing to kill them with. That guy lets you turn whatever card you want into a creature. And with enough you even get a card draw.

Pooling Venom and Contaminated Ground don't work so well with Triskaidekaphobia as once you get the opponent at 13, they can just tap one of their enchanted lands and drop below. Sure you can then use the tree, but they can always respond and there's so much creature removal out there that it's not guaranteed that you'll have that option.
You're better off just swinging with your fairie tokens to bring their life down.

If you want more cruel control for your opponents, I'd recommend these cards (I put them in any B cruel control):
I have seen a Legacy deck that runs these solely (plus 0/1 walls with regenerate) and they win from all the damage dealt through this.
Just a suggestion that you may wanna look into or tinker with. Hope ya like it!
