ClutchWorks is right about the shamans and those 2 cards to cut, I thought you had Vampire Nighthawks in your deck already since he is pretty much a auto include in any black/deathtouch deck. It just too good of a card to not have. The Thornbite Staff should only be 2x since you ideally want to see only one.

Swarmyard will make your Deadly Recluse and Typhoid Rats pretty much the biggest pain in the asses. Hornet Nest would be just that much worse if u add some of those

Dark Confidant instead of Typhoid Rats. You need the card advantage. Also maybe 1 or 2 Phyrexian Obliterator as a finisher. UB isn't the best colour combination for Delver, but you could try BUG, for Abrupt Decay and Tarmogoyf.

I like the budget theme, and I like Chasm Skulker.

I would recommend to replace Typhoid Rats with Ruthless Ripper, since it's absolutly better and still on a budget (about 10 cent a piece).

Think about mass revomals like Drown in Sorrow or Bile Blight to keep the way free for your Chasm Skulker.

where are your Typhoid Rats add Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx you can use Mana Confluence if you can take the points that way you can use it for mana soon as it enters the field to me it looks like you are trying too much you want the mana elves or better yet Sylvan Caryatid you need some sort of draw effect you have a lot of one drops which is good for the agro style but you need something like Dragon Throne of Tarkir also since you are using black Master of the Feast and Whip of Erebos try that out and tell e what you thinkbut me personally I play standard this deck can easily be turned into a standard deck with just a few modifications and you can win fnm easily

It's almost always better to have playsets (the max number - 4) of cards instead of one or two of everything, so I would start by replacing the cards you don't like with more copies of the cards that you do.

A few things I can see:-your deck gains life-it likes to kill things-it wants more card draw

Going by these observations, I would suggest that you play four copies of these cards:

Typhoid Rats - pseudo-removal

Ajani's Pridemate - gets bigger

Wall of Essence - shuts down attackers

Eternal Thirst - makes your stuff get big (this on Pridemate is looking really nice)

Child of Night - good two drop, especially in this deck

Sign in Blood - MOAR CARDZ

Also, it's not M15, but see if you can't get your hands on some Doom Blade or Terror. They're way better than what you have in here right now, and I guarantee you some of the more experienced players you know will have a few lying around

Typhoid Rats , Ravenous Rats , Charcoal Diamond , Swarm of Rats , Nezumi Shortfang , Pestilence Rats , Stronghold Rats , Jet Medallion, and Scrib Nibblers these would just be some ideas you could try out. Once you figure out the route you wanna go then you can decide what you like or don't like. I think having nearly 50 Relentless Rats isn't gonna be that useful when you could fill the slots with so much more good stuff including Rats that kill your opponents hands off so you can get at their life because they can't stop you :3.

loreleaf on Mano V mano mono black

Thanks for the comments/suggestions on my deck. Please allow me to return the favor.

For your meta it appears that the couple mid-range cards you have are the key like the Gray Merchant of Asphodel and Whip of Erebos. I'm curious however if you should run 2 Whips main board? Perhaps one main and one SB to pull out as needed to draw more consistently or in the event you run into aggro.

I'm curious as to why the Despise over Thoughtseize?

I would also look at dropping one of the Murderous Cut to make room for another MB card as typically we don't have enough graveyard cards to support more than 2 MB.

On the side board, every meta is different and you have to set up for your local one. I have two suggestions, drop one of the Dark Betrayal to make room, unless everyone is running mono black or heavy black in Mardu/Abzan.

One change for sure is to replace the Typhoid Rats with Ruthless Ripper. They are the same casting cost and you get the added benefit of morphing them in as needed for a combat trick if you are using them how I think you're using them :)

Overall pretty solid. +1
