Rain of Tears Discussion

I like it. Why no extra discard in the sideboard? Sculler is good and all but you only have 4 of it, so it'd be best to make room for at least a couple Thoughtseize as a catch-all, in my opinion. Also, lately I've considered playing more permanent LD such as Rain of Tears or Evil Presence in my sideboards alongside Damping Sphere, Tron generally packs a ton of artifact hate in their sb ever since it was printed. May be overkill though.

I'm guessing this deck is built around the cards you have?
The best way to build decks and buy cards is purchasing singles, rather than boosters. This has always been the case until the recent Challenger decks (https://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/feature/challenger-decks-lists-2018-02-23) were released. If this deck is built around the cards you have then it's a Casual deck, not really a Modern one. Modern is a competitive format, often aggressively so with decks optimised to win from turn four...
Modern's larger card pool (11764 cards) means the efficiency of the cards can be optimised, you can choose the most cost effective card from the pool, for example you have Shock rather than Lightning Bolt or Spreading Rot instead of Rain of Tears or Stone Rain. Another factor is consistency, you have a lot of single cards in this deck and aren't running 4x of anything, this means the variance in your games is going to be very noticeable.
The question is, what is it you want to do with your deck?
Try to think about a single theme and once you answer that, you can then hone it to use 4x of the most efficient cards that help your win condition. I hope this is of help, good luck and have fun brewing your deck.

In the context of modern, mono black devotion, control, aggro all have issues with Affinity and Tron. Starting there I'd recommend against Go for the Throat, in mono-black on a budget use Victim of Night, Smother or Grasp of Darkness and if your not on a budget Fatal Push. You also want some form of land disruption, now that can be in the form of; Ghost Quarter, Contaminated Ground, Rain of Tears or using discard Blackmail & Mire's Toll, players tend to forget those two discard spells do not have the non-land clause.
In a more casual context I like to play to the unexpected Dash Hopes Imp's Mischief and Temporal Extortion are all fun, but the only one that has ever really appeared in Modern proper is Imp's Mischief. I'd also say you want access to Bile Blight, this can clear token based strategies...
I have played a similar deck on and off Casually/FNM for a while, see Sweet (black) devotion as it may give you a few ideas. I hope this was of help.

Also given your meta...
Burn - Dragon's Claw
Also Telepathy is amazing in just about every match up.

I woudl strongly suggest some Simian Spirit Guides. Having played Ponza a decent amount, I can tell you that few things are more devastating for an opponent than a turn 2 Stone Rain, Rain of Tears, Fulminator Mage or Blood Moon, and Simian Spirit Guide is probably the only way you do it in these colors. That and Desperate Ritual, and Wild Cantor. Crack the Earth can also be super good with Simian Spirit Guide. Chandra, Torch of Defiance has also been a staple for me, and I never feel bad drawing one as she can help draw into a win con, or slowly ping your opponent to death. She also helps ramp into an Inferno Titan, which while it is the best card in that deck, I can see why you omitted it. Goblin Dark-Dwellers have also been an all-star for me, and I can see Pack Rat being solid here. The new Angrath in RIX might also be a worthy include. While Rakdos might not be as explosive as Gruul, I can definitely see the merits of it in more of a midrange shell!
