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.)

This is a pretty good budget deck.
Back to your deck though, I still think Wurmcoil Engine is too slow for what seems to be an aggressive lifelink deck. Instead why not try Vampire Nighthawk a 3 mana flyer with lifelink and deathtouch.If you adjust your mana curve to have more lower cost cards you could easily get away with slightly less lands. Say twenty and add four of something else. Personally I'd remove Hallowed Fountain as I'm not sure it fits with the deck. But that is my opinion.
Thinking about it too I'd also look at Baneslayer Angel its great, really, really great. But unless you own some already (if you do I'll happily trade almost anything up to and including my soul for them) you'll find it difficult and expensive to locate some. Battlegrace Angel is an option if you see lone high powered creatures attacking, but the problem with exalted is that its ruined by spot removal and without trample by simple 1/1 creatures blocking.. Maybe Fiendslayer Paladin Escaped Null or even Mistmeadow Skulk which has possibly the most amusing protection I've seen making it perfect as a little blocker.
Possibly instead of Rhox Faithmender consider Mistmeadow from above or Perimeter Captain as it costs less to cast and frankly gaining that much life from Rhox is unnecessary. If you want consider Felidar Sovereign , I did for a while but removed him because I couldn't defend him well enough from spot removals. Plus the hate he generates just by existing is huge.
So I'd say Vampiric Nighthawk instead of Wurmcoil engine. Fiendslayer Paladin over Baneslayer and Mistmeadow Skulk over Rhox Faithmender. Cutting out other cards if needed to run four of them.
are you trying to keep this a budget deck or not? If not i would suggest Vampire Nocturnus and Vampire Nighthawk as an alright idea. i also might suggest putting in Liliana of the Dark Realms just ideas here hope i could help
Hey CampbellStev, I was looking through your binder and saw some potential matches. Let me know what you think of this offer:
From you: 1x Galerider Sliver (4.74), 1x Vampire Nighthawk (.97), 1x Mirari (.37), 1x Diluvian Primordial (.27), 1x Fabricate (2.38), 1x Mimic Vat (2.45), and 1x Polluted Delta (16.80) for a total of $27.98
I would argue that Grasp of Darkness is better than Dead Weight , although Victim of Night or Go for the Throat would be better for a 2-drop. You're also going to want to thin up your creatures in favor of low-cost spells. 20 or fewer creatures would be best, with plenty of 1- and 2- drop instants, enchantments, and sorceries to maximize your extort potential. I'd keep 4x Crypt Ghast for sure, since the extra mana will be necessary for triggering all those extorts. If you really want to keep things like Vampire Nighthawk for offense, might I suggest Pontiff of Blight as a powerful wall that keeps your critters extorting? I'm digging Blood Scrivener , one way or the other, so defs keep him, though. Maybe think about adding some phyrexian spells like Dismember and Marrow Shards as the pain payment won't hurt so much, and keeps mana open for extortion. +1 for extortion fun, though! Keep up the good work! Try the Noble format out!
I was thinking maybe Vampire Nighthawk , Cheap mana and very good
To answer your question, a general mono black aggro deck in modern will run Thoughtseize , Inquisition of Kozilek , Disfigure , Liliana of the Veil , and then big creatures like Phyrexian Obliterator , Master of the Feast , Lashwrithe , Vampire Nighthawk , and Gatekeeper of Malakir .
