I would swap out Sorin's Vengeance for Temporal Extortion. I'm not sure you want 4 Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx . I've had it a few of times in my mono black devotion deck where by Turn 2 I have a swamp and Nykthos and I can't cast any creatures until Turn 3. Have you played this at FNM? How does your mana hold up? Love the Gifted Aetherborn. This guy has a big future.

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

I'm surprised to see nobody has recommended any extra turn spells. Some of the best ones are Temporal Mastery, Savor the Moment, Beacon of Tomorrows, and of course Time Walk. If you're on a tighter budget there are still some good, cheap ones like Sage of Hours, and Temporal Extortion. (The creature having great synergy with Atraxa)

You also can put in some Jaces: Jace Beleren, Jace, Memory Adept, and Jace, the Mind Sculptor.

Since this is mill, part of me more prefers Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger over Infinite Gyre.

Some more pure mill can be Archive Trap, Increasing Confusion, Startled Awake  Flip, Glimpse the Unthinkable, Mind Funeral, etc.

Tree of Perdition, Magister Sphinx and Sorin Markov are also both nice for cutting your opponent(s) down to size in terms of life.

Temporal Extortion could be a nice way to pressure your opponents to giving you extra turns.

If you actually want to be rude, Omniscience is your friend.

Temporal Extortion and Vampiric Link could also get some use

Beacon of Immortality combos nicely with Tainted Remedy to smite one player instantaneously :) Good ol' Death Ray! It can also save you in a pinch, of course.

Also, since you don't have Blue, I really like Temporal Extortion. Really no downside to playing that card. You either take an extra turn or someone loses half of their life! For 4 mana I would call that a steal ;)
