Wrench Mind Discussion

Raven's Crime is excellent for getting rid of excess lands.
painful quandry is too expensive, you're never going to cast it before dying.
With only 19 lands you don't want more than maybe three cards with a CMC or higher.

Because because of the color-greediness of the spells this deck runs, and the fact you're not running any 6+CMC or X-cost spells, means that Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx really doesn't have a place here.. I'd just replace it with another Swamp..
Necrogen Mists.. I've never played with it, but to just randomly use it as a "budget LotV" just seems bad.. You're not building specifically around this kind of effect, so I would cut them for a 4th copy of Gifted Aetherborn and something else.. Have you ever considered Wrench Mind?
A general rule of thumb in Magic: anything that gives your opponent choices is bad; therefore Desecration Demon is a lot worse than it looks at first..
Also Erebos's Titan seems cute, but I think you should really take another look at Lashwrithe. Not only is it a body that scales with the game, but it hangs around and turns your creatures into huge game-enders for "free"! I would run AT LEAST 2x, if not more..
Finally for your consideration are the other two main Delve creatures: Gurmag Angler and Tombstalker.. The former actually has a home in Legacy Grixis Delver lists, however I recommend the Demon due to this being Mono-Black..
For your sideboard: As a Mono-Black deck, your options are limited.. That being said, you need 3-4x Pithing Needles and 3-4x Ratchet Bombs for things that tends to have a hard time with.. Faerie Macabre also makes for some effective budget-friendly graveyard-hate that catches people off guard, and is effectively un-counterable (the sole exception in the format being Disallow)..
Sorry for the big wall of text & suggestions.. Mono-Black Midrange/Devotion has a special place in my heart, as it is the deck that I really used to learn the Modern format & MtG in general.. I love my Obliterators though..

Good question. I couldn't afford Dark Confidant nowadays either, I just started getting back into magic and had a play-set lying around from back when they first came out.
Blood Scrivener is probably the most like for like replacement. However, you could also try something entirely different as the 4xAsylum Visitor might be enough card draw. I love being super aggressive and have thought about trying to find a way to squeeze Geralf's Messenger into this deck. Wrench Mind could also be an option that a lot of other 8 rack decks run.

+2 Wrench Mind
JKRice I gave it a shot, unfortunately the hellbent stipulation was just too demanding and Waste Not ended up being more useful.

Upvote mainly for the song, nice XD (though i think one more Wrench Mind would be a good add)

I searched my whole collection and couldn't find the Hermit Druid :( if you're still up for trading though, we could drop the Druid from my side, and the 3x Wrench Mind from your side and it would still be fairly even.

A cheaper version of Megrim exists in Liliana's Caress, if your going the discard route I'd also suggest Waste Not and Shrieking Affliction are good choices. Along the same lines Wrench Mind is normally Mind Rot but cost less to cast, or use Augur of Skulls. lastly Victim of Night in preference to Terror as it's restrictions are rarely relevant.
