Creature — Spirit
Flying (This creature can't be blocked except by creatures with flying or reach.)
: Regenerate Will-o'-the-Wisp. (The next time this creature would be destroyed this turn, it isn't. Instead tap it, remove all damage from it, and remove it from combat.)

thom-le while I agree that Will-o'-the-Wisp over Mortivore is effective for it's cheaper cost, I am mainly concerned with potentially substituting the activated abilities that cost mana with those of which that cost life instead so that I dont have to rely on holding up mana to do so. Mischievous Poltergeist effectively enables this for me and has more graveyard value in my opinion. Otherwise, I have favored Mortivore over Will-o'-the-Wisp for value on the battlefield so far in playtesting, because he can get rather massive and pose a threat on the battlefield if I have to.

Yeah for this case I've put in Thassa, God of the Sea (indestructible), Thalakos Scout (return to hand) or Will-o'-the-Wisp (regenerate). Draining Whelk is a very good card, but Lazav claims so many mana for himself that a counter for 6 CMC is very unlikely to get a place.

I like the list. Have you considered cutting the curious obsession and swapping in Thoughtseize and a negate/alliance to net three sideboard slots?
Black also has some notable spirits to look at- Bloodghast, Nether Traitor and Demigod of Revenge from the graveyard, Dimir Infiltrator for transmute, and Will-o'-the-Wisp as a resilient chump blocker. I've tried to get a mardu Shared Animosity spirits list working with Eidolon of the Great Revel, but it needs a particular meta to run smoothly. This has a lot more resillience.

Also: the swamp girl might be Will-o'-the-Wisp.
I just realzed that the varchild artwork is a female.

Mono black deckbuilder's toolbox is my big list of deckbuilding mono-black tools.
I don't like Tormented Soul outside of spirit tribal, If you love it you should run Lashwrithe and Will-o'-the-Wisp. Mental Agony costs too much mana. Blackmail, Mire's Toll etc and some Sign in Blood/Night's Whisper just runs smoother.
My favourite discard spell is Delirium Skeins, which combos neatly with Asylum Visitor. With the symetrical discard plan, you get access to the hella fun Call the Bloodline and Zombie Infestation, alongside madness tools.

As soon as I saw Torgaar spoiled, I thought of you haha. Glad to see you didn't disappoint!
Some thoughts, in order of what I think may work best:
Temporal Extortion Would be great to torment your opponents with in this deck.
Hatred and Unspeakable Symbol Would be a great way to give a Souldrinker boost to any creature (not even your own)
Bond of Agony Is another great way to leverage Torgaar to heal yourself
Chainer, Dementia Master Could be another way to get out creatures to sac
Dash Hopes Is a fun control card in a deck like this
Songs of the Damned Could be awesome later in the game
Control-ish: Slaughter, Sheoldred, Whispering One, Season of the Witch, Yahenni's Expertise (great with your CMC), Ultimate Price (may be better than some others in there now)
Recursion-ish: Strands of Night, Grave Betrayal, Haunted Fengraf
Ramp-ish: Razaketh, the Foulblooded, Underworld Connections, Bontu the Glorified
Life: Disciple of Griselbrand, Gonti's Machinations
Defense: Eldrazi Monument, Will-o'-the-Wisp, Yahenni, Undying Partisan
Sorry if any of these are redundant. Great deck, as always!
