I like the deck, I'm actually making something similar, i would recommend Tormented Soul for a one drop unblockable, Fog Bank for some defense and maybe Call of the Nightwing for a Cipher card that also generates some flying tokens

You're very welcome :) The ring is a very powerful card. You could put it in a decks with cards like Tormented Soul and Inkfathom Infiltrator and watch your opponents scramble as they realize that they are on a clock. A clock that's spinning ever faster!

Anyway, my question is: What are some unblockable/good evasion creatures in mono-black?

hey im in agreeance with everything landofmordor said. cut anything that doesn't fit your theme/goal. Desecration Demon, Fetid Imp, Morkrut Necropod, Pestilence Demon (this ones mostly do to its high cost), Shadow Alley Denizen, Thriving Turtle, Artificer's Epiphany (because you have no artifacts), Dramatic reversal (you don't really have much that this helps), Tidy Conclusion (because its way over costed and you have no artifacts), Weave Fate (because Divination is terrible at 3 mana and this is 4), Assassin's Strike (6 mana removal is bad), Crippling Blight (1 mana cards removal that probably won't kill anything is even worse), Dead Weight, Singing Bell Strike, Spectral Prison, Viper's Kiss (basically all of your enchantments are much worse than any instant or sorcery you should be playing).
2x Aether Theorist (slow and doesn't help you control much)
1x Aethersquall Ancient (expensive finisher, you could do alot better but if you really like it this one can work i guess).
1x Air Servant (expensive flier that dies to every piece of removal that i can think of that costs 1 or 2 mana. and doesnt really close things out that fast. you can find much better threats).
2x Azure Mage (too mana intensive for any modern deck other than the absolute slowest control deck. generally speaking you can find better cards that give you card advantage)
1x Benthic Giant (this one is hexproof so it does act as a better finisher compared to Air Servant, but it has no evasion which means it will be chump blocked all day).
1x Benthic Infiltrator (you have no cards that interact with the exile effect and its a terrible card in terms of unblockable damage dealers. Tormented Soul would deal damage just as fast at 1 mana).
1x Harbinger of the Tides (actually a pretty good card. play more of these probably)
1x Salvage Drone (somewhat lackluster as a 1 drop)
1x Disperse (decent card)
2x Doom Blade (very solid card. may want to switch to Ultimate Price)
1x Force Away (probably should just be another disperse)
2x Glimmer of Genius (this is a pretty bad draw spell)
3x Select for Inspection (great card).
things you can add

For other unblockable spirits in various budgets, Ghastlord of Fugue, Nether Traitor, Tormented Soul, Hunted Phantasm are worth a look. The big trick is managing to pump out the damage with the unblocked creatures or get other fun effects- I've seen Curiosity, Tainted Strike, Phyresis, Drana, Liberator of Malakir, Oona's Blackguard, Paranoid Delusions, Call of the Nightwing Skullsnatcher, Stronghold Rats, Helm of the Ghastlord, Mephidross Vampire/Necropolis Regent, you name it. Its all about deciding how you want to make that unblockable damage into an unstoppable advantage
