Thanks, its good to know its being used!
I've tested Dregscape Zombie alongside Rotting Rats to put gravecrawler onto empty boards, but its not a fantastic setup- too many slots to sideboard, too neiche to main board - you might get some more traction from sacrificing it but I'm not super confident. Stillmoon Cavalier/Haakon, Stromgald Scourge/Stromgald Crusader is similar, without red for new volderaden it turns out very weak to random token generation.
Honestly, I'd just throw a Whip of Erebos in there rather than mucking about. Probs simpler and more effective than the other stuff. The setup looks solid enough, you aren't accelerating into a massive Profane Command for grey merchant, so you could probsbly cut Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx for some random utility lands without losing too much (except that hardcast death's gate), Mystifying Maze perhaps. It looks pretty together here though, so let me know how it turns out!

Great job on this deck, it looks like a lot of fun to play! As far as suggestions go, I think you need the full playset of AEther Vial as it allows you to drop an extra creature most turns and without being countered, not to mention how well it combos with Haakon. I would also recommend replacing Stillmoon Cavalier and Knight of the Holy Nimbus with Knight of the White Orchid to help get that third land out with more consistency given all the three mana cost creatures. Finally, I would like to see Hero of Bladehold somewhere in here and maybe even Hero of Oxid Ridge in the sideboard for a creature token matchup instead of Worm Harvest which kind of seems out of place given the mainboard Lingering Souls. Overall I love this deck, it looks fun, effective, and super flavorful, +1!

Mono black deckbuilder's toolbox is a big list of cards I put together to try and cover what is available for mono black in modern- haven't updated for aether revolt yet, It'll need another look soon but for now, take a look at Night's Whisper, alternatively Blood Scrivener/Asylum Visitor with Zombie Infestation and Call the Bloodline is cheap and efficient. Ratchet Bomb is an awesome source of removal for noncreature permanents- If you leave it you can shut down some combos just by setting it to the appropriate mana cost. Bojuka Bog is awesome sideboard, and Stillmoon Cavalier is wonderfully resilient. on another note, if you're running discard Dregscape Zombie is somtimes worth it to res the gravecrawlers from an empty board.All told, good luck and happy brewing.

You do not really have any early game plays aside from removal, which can really hamper you against certain decks. Gravecrawler, Relentless Dead, and Bloodghast can do wonder to establishing an early board presence -- which can then get you to your late game plays much faster with Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. Bloodghast is not very budget friendly though, so I would understand if you did not want to invest in those. Same can be said for Phyrexian Obliterator.
If you do add some of those early game creatures, they can be incredibly recursive. As such, adding Mind Slash can help add some level of interaction to the deck -- especially if your opponent has a big beat stick out that your smaller creatures cannot get through. Giving your smaller creatures some utility can help break the walls. Other good sacrifice outlets would be Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Viscera Seer, and Sidisi, Undead Vizier. Adding some of those sacrifice outlets then also makes Grave Pact extremely game breaking.
I would also consider Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth as it can allow your shrines to tap for when you don't have devotion greater than 2, or if you have it as one of your first two lands in hand. Many other lists employ Profane Command, Geralf's Messenger, Stromgald Crusader, and Stillmoon Cavalier. I also personally enjoy Lord of the Undead + Nameless Inversion, especially with all of the zombies that monoblack devotion can use.

Phyrexian Crusader is a lot interesting for his color protections, but I think he's a little in trouble for his Infect ability, not having any other source to abuse of that.
Stillmoon Cavalier as always makes his spot in my mind, but as a 3cc is a little underpowered imho: 2/1 with flying and first strike not free. Meh, I can see him only with Gravecrawler and Stromgald Crusader, in a Haakon, Stromgald Scourge focused build.
Appreciated the comment, but I'd rather prefer an explanation of the suggestions, to discuss it with proper thoughts.Yes, I'm a demanding b*tch

what creature to replace tho? i really like the Lord of the Undead and Death Baron as my 3 drop buff zombies, the Diregraf Colossus provides amazing field and strong synergy, the Stillmoon Cavalier i suppose isn't adding to the synergy, but is an excellent card on his own, getting very strong from what i already have there, and attack through with protection or flying and buff for big damage. the Diregraf Captain does make the opponent not want to kill my creatures as much i suppose, or they are forced to and lose a life for it. definitely see where he could be very good, i guess i could playtest him in, see how it goes. Give me your opinion on what i should replace to add him in?
