I feel as if you should probably replace the copies of Hideous End in the sideboard with copies of Vendetta or Victim of Night , especially as they fit better with your amount of lands. There are simply better removal spells out there. If someone is playing some planeswalkers, you could also use some copies of Vampire Hexmage , I suppose.

Buckminsterfullerene on Dont arrest me plz. (extort)

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!

-Take out Victim of Night and Wrecking Ball , add 2 Lightning Bolt .

-Take out both Despoil , add 2 Corrupted Zendikon .

-Maybe remove a swamp to add the fourth Sign in Blood , but thats up to you.

-I would exchange Contaminated Ground with Crack the Earth but you seem to like it.

Now for sideboard:

-4 Victim of Night or Doom Blade

-4 Crack the Earth

-3 Despoil

-I suggest 4 Manaforge Cinder for manafix or maybe 4 Crypt Rats

Now you could say that you win by controlling the opponent's land to prevent him from doing anything while hitting him with Corrupted Zendikon , Lightning Bolt , and mainly Roiling Terrain .

What do you think?

Victim of Night or Geth's Verdict would probably work better than Doom Blade . Victim can hit more creatures and Verdict can get past Protection. Only problem is they are BB instead of 1B but I think that's a small price to pay.

You might try an Esper Control list (no Gifts Ungiven package). Your win conditions would be Batterskull and Lingering Souls .

Basically, you'd run something like:

17x Lands of your choice (shocks, fetches, basics, etc.)
4x Manlands (Creeping Tar Pit , Celestial Colonnade )
1x Academy Ruins
4x Tectonic Edge
------------------------------------------------
25 Lands

4x Snapcaster Mage
------------------------------------------------
4 Creatures

1x Batterskull
1x Dismember
2x Liliana of the Veil
4x Lingering Souls
4x Mana Leak
3x Path to Exile
3x Remand
2x Spellsnare
1x Terminus
4x Thoughtseize
1x Victim of Night
2x Wrath of God
3x Dimir Signet /Talisman of Dominance /Azorius Signet /etc. (any 2-mana rock will do)
------------------------------------------------
31 Other Spells

This is a rough draft, so you'd have to do a lot of tweaks. Four Cryptic Command and Damnation are probably in order, but those can be limited by budget.

Orzhov list seems to be fine in reality. In orzhov you already have access to things like Dismember and Victim of Night for removal so it's not such a big deal. The only things worth splashing green for are goyf and decay. Decay isn't necessary (it's fantastic but you don't NEED it), and goyf would be nice but suffers to Lingering Souls anyway, which is sort of ironic because we're arguing in favour of including it but it's bad against the card I have access to already. I am tempted to put in 4x Verdant Catacombs and 4x Overgrown Tomb because I sort of can. It's tough because the list is essentially monoblack. You want two black lands in hand by T2 for pox, which means that every land should, in an ideal world, tap for black as well as a ceondary colour.

I don't want to play 8rack because I already have an 8rack deck and it's ok but not fantastic.

I like the flavor of this deck :)
I could tell you to add more expensive dual lands, but a good mana base isn't cheap. And what you have seems good to cast the cards. Darkslick Shores is not too expensive though.
You might want to consider which archetypes you're gonna buff the most with draw. I'm thinking something like red aggro and Affinity. They normally run out of steam pretty fast, but they could get immense board presence with all that draw. To which an answer could be mass removal, some cheaper creatures and/or some more removal.
So for suggestions I'd say:
For mass removal: Drown in Sorrow and Mutilate are nice black budget cards.
Consider some Victim of Night and a Murderous Cut for spot removal. BB might be too demanding on your mana base though. In my opinion Doom Blade is too conditional.

Bropocalyptica on Devotion to Darkness (Would like some feedback!)

Geralf's Messenger and Bloodghast work really well when you're ok with wiping your own board a lot with stuff like Smallpox and Mutilate while offering a lot of (recurring) devotion.

Consider Victim of Night over Go for the Throat so you don't get screwed against affinity on game 1.

I'd run Gatekeeper of Malakir over Ghastlord of Fugue any day for how economical it is. Kill spell + beater is always a plus. The Ghastlord of Fugue is kinda slow unless you have enough mana from Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx . Even then, that's a huge mana commitment for something that doesn't really do anything when it hits the board. If it had haste or an ETB trigger, I'd say it'd be useful, but for that mana you might as well be dropping something else (Gray Merchant of Asphodel ).

I think you're going to find that between Dismember and Phyrexian Arena you may have some issues racing aggro decks without a Phyrexian Obliterator out. I found that running a 1 or 2 of Lashwrithe and a couple of Inkmoth Nexus (not a big deal to run if you have Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth s) can help clutch out that extra lifelink from your Vampire Nighthawk s or provide an alternate wincon if your board gets wiped. This is, of course, if you feel you can make space for it.

Other than that, pretty decent list. +1 from me.
