Holy shit this is so cool!! Just a few minor suggestions.

Shock lands like Hallowed Fountain and Watery Grave are more expensive than Sunken Hollow or Prairie Stream, but they don't have to come in tapped if you don't meet requirements.

Secondly, I would add in 4 Wall of Denial (or Wall of Frost) to keep you alive. You never know what you may be blocking and sometimes tapping something doesn't do the trick if it has hexproof or shroud.

For removal, cards like Dismember, Ultimate Price, or even Stab Wound (which also provides another win-con) would be better in place of Assassinate, as being a 3 mana sorcery that only works on tapped creatures makes it only barely playable and very inefficient.

Lastly, since you've got creatures very well covered, it might be wise to include some Safe Passages to protect you from burn. Cards like Holy Day won't work to protect from burn because they only guard against combat damage. I would also throw in 4 Paradox Hazes for an amazing combo for the Azor's Elocutors. Hope this helps, I really love the deck. +1

Ok so I have this list for comptetitive modern mono black- Mono black deckbuilder's toolbox. You can build something super budget and very powerful decks- Gifted Aetherborn can provide a second set of nighthawks. Duress deals with so many threats its not funny, and can clear out a Supreme Verdict t1. Mire's Toll does similar lategame, but can hit lands. I'd reccomend cards like Drainpipe Vermin, Ravenous Rats over Highborn Ghoul and similar for the potential 2 for one trading- removing their hand gives more time to kill them. Cheap lifelink sources like Vault Skirge or Indulgent Aristocrat can also provide some more space. Bad Moon is pretty much a must have here. Temporal Extortion is super cute. If you find courself running a bunch of vamps a pair of Blade of the Bloodchief works better than any number of enchantements. Stab Wound is super slow- consider something like Dark Prophecy for if you encounter board clears.

Heartstabber Mosquito seems a bit pricey for what it gives back in return. Have you tried Temporal Extortion? Also, Stab Wound Is a great win con and can also work as a kill spell for smaller creatures. All in all, looks pretty solid. +1 from me

Hello! I found your deck on the "Advertise your Deck!" forum post today when I posted mine.

A few things here:

Hope this helps!

A few more cards to consider:

Paralyze - stops a big foe, plus adds black for GMOA

Vampiric Link - stops big foe from hitting us (since the life the enchanted creature gains goes to us - hits opponent and we get healed), could replace the rats with this, also adds black for GMOA. And it is usually more difficult to get rid of an enchantment rather than a squishy 1/1

Eternal Thirst boost a guy (even one of mine, maybe the Seraph of Dawn) cause I am sure critters will die even if we aren't fighting directly

I cant use Cloudshift on you, you have to keep that (I added 2 flickers of my own for ya)

Maybe Oblivion Ring or Pacifism (or a black enchant that does similar, maybe my favorite Stab Wound)

Don't forget things like Bone Saw - zero cost cast, easy to extort. Or Dark Ritual - extort a spell to get you more mana to extort with :)

A few cards to consider: Stab Wound - removal, or can be sneaky good if the aggro fails.Apostle's Blessing - if you want to dodge enemy removals. Also sweet with Temur Battle Rage kind of strategies.Immolating Souleater - Your opponent pretty much has to block this, and then it's a removal. It's a little tricky but could be sweet.

And then a few creatures: Scab-Clan Berserker, Shambling Remains and my new favourite guy Reckless Bushwhacker.

I can drop Cryptborn Horror and Terminate if you want all cards to be "aggro".
