Spinning Darkness Discussion

It happened at times that i didn't find lands. I think it's more about unlucky shuffles though.
Spinning Darkness is here cause i can cast it for free basically. But if i cast Phyrexian Obliterator with Eternal Thirst i think i won't have too many problems regarding lifepoints or keep mana free since i won't need much more basically!

One of my favorite cards in mono black is Vampire Nighthawk. I would play four because its so versatile. Might help you with offsetting some of the cost of cards like Phyrexian Arena and/or Necropotence if you decide to run that card. I think I might run two Necropotence/Phyrexian Arena if you had the option, just for a more consistent chance at drawing it.
As far as cuts, I would say Sol Ring, Aether Vial and Spinning Darkness would be my first ones just because you only have 1 of each. How often do you find yourself in need of that mana when you are running twenty lands and the four dark rituals?

Well i have only one Spinning Darkness that uses just 3 cards in the graveyard... but anyway if i only use it to refile my hand to 7, i don't have to discard/exile any cards right?

As far as suggestions go, I can't help but feel that your land count is a bit low - I tend to stay around the 37 mark. I noticed that you're a bit sparse on draw spells, and black gets some of the best draw pauper has to offer; I run Sign in Blood, Night's Whisper, Succumb to Temptation, Phyrexian Rager, and Read the Bones in my own list.
Three cards in your list that seem a bit underwhelming to me are Last Caress, Contaminated Bond, and Reave Soul. The former seems too minor an effect, even with the cantrip. The Bond is a cool card, but most of the time I think it's a better idea to remove the threat entirely (if you dig the "slow drain" theme, I think the Contaminated Ground in your maybeboard would be better in this slot.) For myself, the sorcery speed of Reave Soul makes it less appealing - maybe something like Wring Flesh, Spinning Darkness, or Tendrils of Corruption would be worth considering? I also dig Viper's Kiss as "utility" removal.
Great deck, though! Pauper EDH is my new favorite format, as it tends to feel more like 'oldschool' magic.
