Shivan Gorge adds more opponent damage.
And Torment of Scarabs would be fun!

Penthoplayer So I've been doing a lot of testing... The 2 of in card draw isn't really doing as much work as I'm wanting it to... I'm not sure if I need to go to 3 of or what. I've also tried running CD spells like Night's Whisper, Altar's Reap, Succumb to Temptation but yea. Also, tried out Harmonize and Wall of Omens. Gonna try out 3 of's and 4 of's, I don't think it'll be worth it as a 1 of. I have found that Obzedat has been doing work for me online and at my LGS though.

Furthermore, lots of card draw. The ideal hand is lot's of apostles, but you will never get 6 of them into play before turn 5 without carddraw. And if you are slower than that, you could just ramp and get the cmc 6-8 demons into play by casting them.

I like this deck idea, the one thing I would suggest is adding more card advantage. Make room for 4 copies of Succumb to Temptation between the maindeck and sideboard. Or possibly some combination of Glint-Sleeve Siphoner and Live Fast.
You might also want to go up a couple of the cycling deserts, so there's less chance of you being mana screwed, and you can cycle them away in case of mana flood.

Hey, I like the deck and have been running my own mono black control deck in standard for quite a few months now.
1). I think you should add Gifted Aetherborn, hes such a great card and any deck that can cast him should run him. The curve of Fatal Push -> Gifted Aetherborn -> Liliana, the Last Hope is super strong.
2). Harsh Scrutiny is a card i like to run as an additional 1 drop, its good early game and later game the one mana scry doesnt hurt much.
4). I love Drana, Liberator of Malakir but I feel you need more creatures in your deck to make her more useful. I would swap her for a more impactful creature/spell.
5). I really wanted to play Demon of Dark Schemes in my deck, however i felt like the ability would never be used, and with me being a control deck, by turn 6/7/8 my opponent shouldnt have many/any creatures on the board so his wipe may hit nothing. However if you want to keep the creature, i would suggest swapping Succumb to Temptation with Live Fast. You downgrade to a sorcery speed draw spell, but do benefit from gaining extra energy meaning the demon should get an activation.
The above is only personal preference but I am happy to give more of my opinion if required.
