Deathtouch (Any amount of damage this deals to a creature is enough to destroy it.)
Lifelink (Damage dealt by this creature also causes you to gain that much life.)

Whatever u do, don't run Doom Blade that card sucks, and in modern it's a bad joke. If u go that route try Vendetta instead. I really like Devour in Shadow but most of the time Victim of Night is just as good. (other options instead of Go for the Throat which doesn't hit Lashwrithe or Vault Skirge , Affinity, Ichorclaw Myr , Wurmcoil Engine Batterskull etc. I think the only thing Victim of Night misses is Vampire Nighthawk and Huntmaster of the Fells Flip which may or may not even be ran in it's own deck. Jund.
@rothmog you might just want to remove Sleeper Agent altogether. it just seems like a waste and it could be better replaces with cards like Vampire Nighthawk . I get you want to gain life, but please remember that your opponent still gets a 3/3 and you pay the mana for it. he still deals one more damage to you per turn (assuming you don't gain life, however unlikely that is) so you take three damage, he/she takes two, and in no time she has an advantage
What about running 2xGray Merchant of Asphodel ?
If you have Phyrexian Obliterator in play + one of your many 3 drops (Vampire Nighthawk , Phyrexian Arena , and maybe Hypnotic Specter or Nyxathid ), you can hit your opponent for 8 damage while you get 8 life.
Your deck is running a LOT devotion to black.
I really really love the ideas, especially Phyrexian Obliterator . I've never seen the card before and it would be awesome to have it in the deck, but this is a deck that I'm buying, lol. On another note, the Vampire Nighthawk and the Sign in Blood are both very convincing cards to have in the deck and I think I'll have to try some playtests with them. I think I can make room for the new cards as well because I don't really think I need the Dimir Charm and the extra Despise s anyway. Do you also have any suggestions about my creature removal? I usually discard most of their creatures before they can cast them, but I'm not sure. Thanks for the help and I'll make sure to check out your deck!!
I don't like Runechanter's Pike purely because it gives no evasion. When I ran it in my deck Izzet a Good Thing? I always had something better to play. I would remove it for some of the suggestions I will make below.
Also, your creature base is kinda lack-luster. I used to run Skirsdag High Priest before in Vampire's Regret and it was just slow. Phyrexian Obliterator should be your win condition and every thing else should be there to support him. I would put him as a four of. Removing Skirsdag High Priest means you can also remove Typhoid Rats or Vampire Nighthawk , your choice. If anything, I would remove both and put in Virulent Swipe instead. It is more useful as the opponent won't be expecting it when they attack, and could last another turn, therefore you have a better chance of killing their creatures.
As for other cards I would use, The Rack is always a fun one, for you anyways. It also would be stronger than Megrim or Liliana's Caress as it also punishes them for playing cards. For creatures, you have Hypnotic Specter and Nyxathid as my main suggestions. Then Black Knight and Abyssal Nocturnus for secondary choices. I would also consider Isochron Scepter for the recurrence on discard (or removal), and may be better than Nezumi Shortfang or Hypnotic Specter .
is a bit expensive so maybe can wait, but Id go for 4x of Inquisition of Kozilek
since (almost) EVERY deck has at least 3/4 of spell with cost 3 or less.The Hypnotic Specter
is cute because of the random discard factor, but I would prefer Vampire Nighthawk
cause flies as well plus has death touch and lifelink: perfect package. I would add also 3-4 Sign in Blood
to help picking some extra card.
About the creatures Im myself working on it, I think a monoblack MUST at least have Phyrexian Obliterator but also depends on the budget. I also like the Nyxathid and Im going probably to put it back in my deck because it works just so good.
If you want you can check my mono-black discard TENEBRA and see if theres some idea you might use.
