Phyrexian Obliterator, Mutavault, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth are out of money range now.
Nightveil Specter looks weak, because it has to stay for a turn and successfully attack to do some random thing. There is good chance, that exiled card is unplayable in mono black. One more devotion compared to Vampire Nighthawk seems like a small upside. Regarding devotion, in the beginning of deck there was playset of Gray Merchant of Asphodel, but the card is low impact. Too often i have devotion 4 or even 2 and then it's weak for 5 mana. I cut it to lower the curve.
Report from last FNM, went 1:2:
Match 1 against burn: First game opponent had some bad draw but good opening hand. I lost it, but it was close, at one point he had one card in hand, i played Gray Merchant of Asphodel total devotion 6 and he responded with Skullcrack. It was close, but he finally won. Second game i won, due to lifegain (Vampire Nighthawk + Lashwrithe). Third game was long and super close, but he won thanks to pair of Skullcracks, one topdecked. I was like: this matchup looks better than i expected (good thing), but i was off luck a little (bad thing).
Match 2 against Forest belcher: First game opponent mulliganed a lot (this deck plays very small amount of lands) and i won easily. Second game he was on -10 lifes (Abyssal Persecutor) and i was on 30 lifes unable to kill my Percy for 2 turns. Next turn he finally killed me by Goblin Charbelcher. Third game i was sitting on two swamps, drawing cards by Sign in Blood but still waiting for other lands, when i finally found 3rd swamp, he managed to kill me. Forest Belcher is interesting and fun deck better than my. That was first time Lost Legacy's nonartifact was really big deal for me. Forest Belcher is nice unique deck and i don't have anything good against it in sideboard.
Match 3 against Jund Dragons: Both games were attrition wars, I won both easily thanks to draw from Phyrexian Arena or Sign in Blood or Arguel's Blood Fast Flip.
Notes: i need more Rite of Consumption, this card proves very good in this deck and i need more ways to kill my Abyssal Persecutor... In match against Jund Dragons also had problem with killing my Percy, but solved it very fast. Currently 10 ways to kill Percy don't counting flipped Arguel's Blood Fast Flip. It isn't enough...

Maybe Dying Wish and/or Murder Investigation? Also, Fleshbag Marauder, Merciless Executioner, Slum Reaper, and Barter in Blood help up your commander's power considerably. Also, Rite of Consumption, Essence Harvest, and Curse of the Cabal might be fun.

If you maybe want to make the sacrificing a little more consistent and focus more on the Bloodthrone Vampire and Rite of Consumption plan, maybe include more creatures like Myr Sire that replace themselves. Cards like Doomed Dissenter, Carrier Thrall and Sultai Emissary are all fine options and allow for two sacrifices with one creature. Maybe replace the Perilous Myr and Tattered Mummy with these options, as although those creatures do hurt the opponent, committing fully to just bloodthrone-riting someone out should make it so you don't need the extra damage. Hope this helps in some way, really like the deck!

It's 3 life. The "sacrificed creature" in Rite of Consumption's text specifically refers to the creature on the battlefield that you sacrificed. It will use information about what the creature looked like the last moment it was on the battlefield to determine the size of the effect. In your example the creature had 3 power when you sacrificed it.

xyr0s Thanks for all these tips. I didn't know that Kiln Fiend existed. I'll definitely include a bunch of those. I'll consider Lightning Bolt because I need better removal.I'll consider splashing black as well (or converting white into the splash color) because Rite of Consumption is really good in this deck
PS: You must also remember that Righteousness + Spikeshot Goblin is a two card combo, but I also include Fling to be able to use other creatures to deal damage. It's a pity, cause there aren't many creatures with that kind of ability (tap to deal damage sort of deal),they'd benefit this deck a lot
PS 2: I know this might sound silly, but would Brion Stoutarm work in this deck?

As for the main part of the plan - and I'm going to say some really boring things now - it consists of 3 cards: creature + Righteousness + Fling. Generously speaking, this yields 9 damage, costs 4 mana (but you can play the creature a turn before the rest of the combo), and eats up 3 cards, as well as requires your opponent to attack with something that can be blocked. It is also heavily relying on having all 3 components. By comparison 3 Lightning Bolt/Lava Spike/Bump in the Night cost 3 mana, is partially at instant speed, does not require you to block, and is immune to removal - and deals 9 damage. And this combo of yours will easily leave you out of cards after it has been played. New combos are awesome, but it has to be better than just throwing 3-to-the-face (which also doesn't kill anyone - it's a hard hit, but 9 damage is not lethal).
You could improve it by using better creatures (Kiln Fiend could do, perhaps, especially if you get to attack with it before flinging it), or by looking for redundant cards for the most crucial combo pieces (black has its own fling - Rite of Consumption).

APPLE01DOJ- interesting. Not very budget. Perhaps in a more competitive deck. I find I'm using all of my mana every turn to get this geared up for a win, so keeping mana open for this may not be viable. I also feel this would only be conditional as it would only be useful to use with Bloodthrone Vampire after a pump, disrupting the killcon of Rite of Consumption, which gains me that life anyhow for less mana. Thanks for the suggestion, I appreciate the effort; but I think I'm gonna have to pass.

Nice infinite dmg combo u got there with Devoted Druid and Quillspike, ever considered running Fling or Rite of Consumption? TBH Rite might just fit in there, go inf big on Quillspike then use Devoted Druid 2 more times to add a and for Rite, and GG.
