Victim of Night
Destroy target non-Vampire, non-Werewolf, non-Zombie creature.
Victim of Night Discussion
2 weeks ago
Erebos, God of the Dead
would be a perfect fit here.
Gatekeeper of Malakir
are both high-devotion powerhouses. If you feel like shelling out the cash,
would be disgusting in here.
You could also use some more efficient and effective removal. Go for the Throat , Victim of Night , Fatal Push , and Hero's Downfall are all great options you have available to you. I'd look to play 6-8 pieces of removal in a deck like this.
If I were you, my changes to the deck would look something like this:
OUT: 1x Abhorrent Overlord , 1x Disciple of Phenax , 2x Korlash, Heir to Blackblade , 2x Squelching Leeches , 1x Barter in Blood , 1x Corrupt , 1x March of the Returned , 1x Mind Rot , 1x Sanguimancy , 1x Quag Sickness , 2x Sinister Possession , 1x Murder , and 1x Sands of Delirium .
IN: 3x Fatal Push , 3x Go for the Throat , 2x Erebos, God of the Dead , 2x Phyrexian Obliterator , 3x Gatekeeper of Malakir , and 3x Geralf's Messenger .
That's my take, anyway. Whatever you decide to do, good luck and have fun!

Good cheap killspells I can recommend would be Tyrant's Scorn , Victim of Night , and Languish . Languish is just a poor-mans Damnation, but i find some kind if board wipe pretty useful, and most of the time this should buy you and extra 2-3 turns. Victim of Night is strong, but the double-black can be pretty restricting, so Tyrant's Scorn might be a better option (or a mix of them both).

If you're going for a budget deck, either Llanowar Wastes or Woodland Cemetery is great. If you're on an tighter budget, Jungle Hollow 's a bit better than Foul Orchard. If you aren't building a budget deck, Overgrown Tomb and Blooming Marsh are great options. Also four dual lands is a bit small, eight would probably be the minimum.
Diabolic Tutor is pretty expensive at four mana, and so is Harmonize . Most decks in modern can win on turn four, so trying to find your pieces on turn four is not a good way to utilize your turn. There aren't many tutors in modern, so I'd suggest coming up with a plan B in case you don't have the pieces of the combo.
I'd also suggest running some additional removal with some of these cards: Assassin's Trophy , Abrupt Decay , Fatal Push , and Maelstrom Pulse . Doom Blade is a bit risky if your opponent has a ton of black creatures, and if so will be a dead card in your hand.
Victim of Night and Go for the Throat are great removal cards that are not very good in certain situations. If you are in one of those situations, and if you have a sideboard ready, you can swap them out for the necessary cards.
Hand disruption is also key to make nothing disrupts your combo. 1-2 Collective Brutality , Two-Four Inquisition of Kozilek s and a pair of Thoughtseize s makes for a great discard package. In the sideboard you could also run Duress against noncreature-spell-heavy decks.

I assume this is built out of cards you owned at the time of construction, and that's why you only run 2 Murder and 2 Asphyxiate /3 Assassinate , as well as having a 2/2 split between Ruthless Ripper and Hired Poisoner .
Even so, I have to question you on some of these other choices:
Assassin's Strike seems like a terrible option. This late in the game, your opponent likely doesn't even have anything to discard, essentially making it a 6 mana sorcery removal spell.
Destroy the Evidence definitely also seems bad. Most decks don't care about losing a land this late in the game, and milling them will more than likely just help them. Since you're not a land destruction deck, nor a mill deck, I don't think you have a way of capitalizing on this card.

This is silly in the best way possible, that being said I think these changes would help. -2x Grasp of Darkness and -2x Echoing Decay for +4x Victim of Night , put the decays in the sideboard replacing the Cower in Fear . Decay is good in certain matches and a single target removal in others, making Victim better in most situations. I'd also put in +3x Barren Moor s and -3x Swamp s. I'd try and work in another Gray Merchant too since it's just too good not to have 4 of them. 4x Sign in Blood could also help with card draw and using the big life total to your advantage. Unearth ing the rats sounds like just the right amount of wackiness this deck needs, not sure what to cut though. I'd also remove the 2 Dead Weight s for 2 more edicts. Really cool deck idea, I'll have to try this out sometime.

@Spiderhead Don't really have a reason, just have all mono black vampires :/
@jconeil1988 I initially started with an aggro similar to the one you have on your profile, but I found that after a few turns I would have an empty hand. I decided to try to shift to midrange by adding some more control and draw cards ( Go for the Throat / Victim of Night / Sign in Blood ), and higher mana cost creatures ( Bloodline Keeper Flip / Vampire Nocturnus / Twilight Prophet and maybe the ones in the sideboard). Is it still too much of an aggro?

Honest feedback for competitive : I feel like your deck is too slow, and has two kind of conflicting ideas that kind of don't synergize well. The deck is also lacking any form of removal at all which in modern is usually a bad sign - sometimes you NEED to remove your opponents stuff even if your deck is aggressive (tbh, yours isnt aggressive)
Theme 1 seems to be vampires- unfortunately though the focus seems to be off of a mono-b or b/r tribal vampire deck, and we aren't running any one drops so creature-based aggro isn't really possible as we are guaranteed to be behind on turn 1 with our best and only play being Vicious Rumors which we only have in our opening hand 40% of the time. When we do have it, its super underwhelming as there are a bunch of better options that you get to pick the card they are discarding ( Thoughtseize , Inquisition of Kozilek ). I recommend if you want to go the vampire route to look up other vampire tribal aggro lists and try to copy their curve and best low cost creatures. In modern as high of a 4 CMC of 2.65 is usually reserved for slower control decks, as an aggro deck you want to get on the board as fast as possible.
Theme 2 is the main theme, which is making our opponent discard cards to make them take damage with Liliana's Caress , but that card only has a 40% chance of being in our opening hand as well. The best option for this style of strategy would probably be an 8-rack deck based around Shrieking Affliction and The Rack , as it's more likely to draw either of these win conditions as well as the damage is higher. Although those decks are very expensive and will not make you popular, i personally find them fun. They are very fast and control your opponents hand very firmly, the problem I have with yours is by turn 3 control decks can prevent you from forcing discards, or they can simply discard something they dont need and keep their best cards, which Thoughtseize can help stop, or they can simply remove Liliana's Caress by then too.
I recommend going either one of those directions with the deck if you mean to make it competitive. If not, its totally fine as a casual deck, no worries. I can recommend some cheap cards you might want to look into though:
