I would suggest that move towards control, since you want to be able to protect that combo of yours and stop your opponent. All-in-all, this seems really well-thought-out, so I'll keep my suggestions to a minimum. Murderous Rider seems good here, since it can be used for removal or as another creature in the graveyard. Some kind of anti-aggro is needed, I think. Possibly Cry of the Carnarium or Revenge of Ravens . And you need a sideboard.
Maybe combine the last two suggestions and have anti-aggro in the sideboard, but to me that seems like it would take up sideboard slots and you'll always need to stop your opponent early.

Skyler1776: Thanks for your comment! :)
Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord was in the deck from the beginning. Ajani, Strength of the Pride and Gideon Blackblade are a little bit to expansive ($$) for my budget, but I considered them before I completed deck and in my opinion, Sorin better suits the assumptions (lifelink for my creatures (in my turn), -X resurrection from graveyard, +2 damage with lifelink == another counter for creatures. My main assumption is gaining life (from lifelink, Soulmender ) to trigger Epicure of Blood , which cooperates perfectly with Ill-Gotten Inheritance and Revenge of Ravens -> Ajani, Strength of the Pride doesn't work well enough with this set. Btw sometimes I don't even have to attack, to win the game. Other creatures in my opinion are perfectly compatible with themselves.
Gideon's Company is very good card, but I decided to change it for Bloodthirsty Aerialist . It has flying, which is good way to deal damage, when opponent doesn't have any flying creatures / or to defend flying attackers.
Now I'm trying to change some lands to speed up an avalanche of 'counters'/'triggers'. ;)

Yeah I guess I didn't take a close enough look at your creatures. You don't have too many big beaters. that's fine, but you can still probably do better than Corrupt in terms of one shot life gain spell. Maybe try something like Essence Harvest instead? I'm no mono black player but even I know that Corrupt is a precon level card haha. You could always add Kokusho, but without a way to loop it I don't see a reason for it. Polluted Bonds and Revenge of Ravens are also more solid cards to me than Corrupt.
As for the removal question, I'd take Doom blade and Gofor over Murder any day of the week. If I'm going to run murder, I might as well run Hero's Downfall instead though. Your deck does look pretty solid though. I would still cut the Primastic for Mind stone unless you find yourself hurting for black mana. The geode could also come out for the diamond unless you value the scry highly.

Sorin_Markov_1947 Thanks for the comment.
Gravedigger was printed in M20 so it is definitely Brawl legal.
I keep thinking Field of the Dead just needs seven other lands, not seven other lands with different names. I'll take that out.
I've liked Cauldron's Gift so far. In one game on turn 5, that card dumped and reanimated Vilis, Broker of Blood on turn 5 or 6. I'm not sure what you mean when you say cauldron's gift has 'eats up the draws'.

Gravedigger isn't brawl-legal. I don't know why TappedOut thinks it is.
I really like this deck, but I see a few things that I think would help. Burglar Rat seems expensive for the effect. Field of the Dead is just a tapped colorless land (AKA, a complete waste) since you don't even have seven differently-names lands in the decklist. Witch's Oven can help you get some use out of creatures that are about to die anyway (e.g. in blocking situations). And although Revenge of Ravens doesn't really fit the theme, it is a great black card that essentially stops your opponent attacking with anything power 2 or less. Cauldron's Gift is an absolutely horrid graveyard recursion card, since it eats up the draws you could be using for other things. Even if you only use it to get one card from your graveyard and you draw it straight away, Cauldron's Gift itself has taken up a draw slot. It's worth thinking about The Cauldron of Eternity , which can help you get back on your feet after a big Massacre Girl wipe, but I think it'd be situational and hard to use, so think about it some.

I would say drop Linden, the Steadfast Queen , since she really only belongs in a mono-white deck. She'll be hard to get out and not super impactful, especially if you don't have many white creatures out.
