BW control generally involves discard spells. You can get some good ones with Duress , Despise , and Castigate . If your friends play mostly creatures, then Harsh Scrutiny is good too. Hymn to Tourach is relatively cheap, but it's very very very very strong, play it at your own risk of creating an arms race between you and your playgroup.

Removal spells like Mortify , Unmake , Anguished Unmaking , Silence the Believers , and Declaration in Stone are all fantastic and I would recommend them over murder or avenging arrow any day.

Healer's Hawk is definitely more of an aggro card, if you want an effect like that, I would recommend Vampire Nighthawk . Obzedat, Ghost Council is incredibly strong, as is Blood Baron of Vizkopa . Vona, Butcher of Magan is incredible too.

I love merciless eviction, but you should really only run one, I would recommend you play some copies of Day of Judgment , Languish , Wrath of God , and Ritual of Soot to get those wraths earlier and keep the board clear.

I cannot recommend enough some Isolated Chapel s, Temple of Silence , Concealed Courtyard s, Shambling Vent s, and Caves of Koilos . Fetid Heath has recently plummeted in price as well, but I don't know your budget.

You'll definitely want some card draw to refill your hand too. In these colors it comes at the cost of life, for the most part. My personal favorites in casual decks are Twilight Prophet , but she is ridiculously expensive, and Kaya, Ghost Assassin . Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip, Phyrexian Arena , Greed , Sign in Blood , Night's Whisper , Damnable Pact , Dark Bargain , Read the Bones , and Midnight Oil .

Hope this was at least a little helpful!

Cool deck! The one thing that jumps out to me is I think 10 shock lands is waaaaaaay too many. I would go down to 2x Overgrown Tomb , 1-2x Godless Shrine , and 1x Temple Garden , and add 1-2x Swamp , 2x Shambling Vent or Stirring Wildwood , and some number of Blooming Marsh / Concealed Courtyard . While shock lands are quite good, playing too many can be a downside against decks like burn and affinity. Other than that, this looks sweet! +1!

If your playing a rack deck at the moment, you should probably be main-decking graveyard hate. Too many modern decks use the graveyard as a resource... Necrogen Mists is on occasion included in budget list to dummy as Liliana of the Veil , giving regular discard. Hostile Desert in a deck splashing white anyway, is possibly a worse Shambling Vent . Vicious Rumors might be of more help than Duress, it's a new card though so I'm not sure. Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip might be usable from the sideboard, if you have something like Death Cultist or Nyxathid which could double as a threat. Hope this is of help, good luck with your deck.

32 lands are not OK for a 4.01 average CMC deck with only 6 mana accelerants. I would suggest upping to 36 or 37 lands (Caves of Koilos, Tainted Field, Bojuka Bog, Shambling Vent, Orzhov Guildgate), getting some ramp with Orzhov Signet, Commander's Sphere, Pristine Talisman. I would remove win-more or non-synergistic cards, like Celestial Mantle and Phyrexian Processor. // Swords to Plowshares, Anguished Unmaking, Utter End and Merciless Eviction are the best removal in the format, and should be in every Orzhov deck.

Some suggestions for you:

Kill it: Never Mirrodin's Core Temple of the False God Captured by the Consulate Sanguine Sacrament

Stick it in: Hero's Downfall Temple of Deceit Shambling Vent Phyrexian Processor Demonic Consultation

Demonic Consultation is a cool way to find the “answer” card you need to avoid dying. (Also, nice synergy with Approach) The two lands I mentioned fit your theme better, imo. Either Downfall or Contempt would be better choices than Never//Return, strictly speaking. Phyrexian Processor isn’t that great of a card, but is pretty dope when your life total is a resource. I like your start, let’s discuss more!
