Target creature gets -1/-1 until end of turn.
Morbid — That creature gets -13/-13 until end of turn instead if a creature died this turn.
I'm trying to find specific cards that could help you. I've been play testing it more and I feel like the only black you should worry about is Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas
so maybe a little bit of early game mana fixing would help.... Doom Blade
and Tragic Slip
I feel are unnecessary since (and correct me if I am wrong) you're using cards like Ancient Grudge
as removal so I feel like you really should cut them. Also Liquidmetal coating does not get nearly as many uses as I'd like so perhaps Hidden Strings
? You can even untap lands with it to cast more removal!
As for your draw decision you don't have very many situation-specific cards, or really very many specific combos for that matter, so I think the best scrying would do is clear an unwanted land-drop. Pinging them for 2 in a pinch or just having a faster draw would be more advantageous if you ask me. I don't know how hard-core you are sticking to a format, but Diabolic Intent is an improved draw in a deck like this. Similar to Tragic Slip or Bone Splinters being ideal removal.
Have you considered Endless Ranks of the Dead or Grave Titan as alternative win-cons/sacrifice-generators? The reason I'm so opinionated about this deck is because I have a similar one of my own, The Grindhouse. It started off B/U for ole' Grimgrin, but ended up mono-black with the titan. I love the sacrifice mechanic, personally. It was the inspiration for an EDH as well, The Telemarketing Call Center.
The deck seems pretty good. My only concern is the Sudden Spoiling , Go for the Throat , Tragic Slip and Hero's Demise . I'm not sure, what is Sudden Spoiling exactly trying to do, however, I don't see any reason to run it. The other ones are restricted removal spells. I know you might say that Hero's Demise destroys their commander, but so does Murder . Or what if the creature you want to kill that Blightsteel Colossus about to one shot you next turn. I'd run Sever the Bloodline or Chainer's Edict , because they have flashback. I'd also find room for some tutors (Increasing Ambition , Demonic Tutor ).
@Jmolinaa Yeah, it works, but so does Geth's Verdict + Tragic Slip So why settle for a sorcery that costs 2 more? Rebound is cool, but a lot of the time it won't wit anything, especially if I go for the double kill combo, Modern seems to have less creatures on the field than Standard, but those creatures normally are bad for the opponent.
