You don't have too many ways to kill their threats. Maybe try running Desecration Demon. Fits the devotion bill, and can either threaten their life total or keep the board clear.
Also, once you throw down Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, you can play out you hand pretty quickly. I would run Phyrexian Arena. I know most people don't, but when you have 15 mana available, you need cards to go with it. Just a thought. Cool deck.

Sorry, what I meant to say was I would run 4 copies of Phyrexian Arena. You already have two, I would go all in on it.

I count 15 different ways of dealing with threats in the mainboard (counting the gatekeepers, hand disruption, actual removal, and Lili's) and that's being a little generous but I think it's enough to make it grindy.
I like BloodMoon but I just finished watching a 3 hour mtgo video with a dude piloting a similar deck that ran moons and he never cast one of them.
As to the arenas, I think any more than 3 would be counterintuitive but I'll probably end up adding the third after some more testing. I definitely see where you're coming from though.

I also like the demon but the curve would take a hit or I'd have to pull some of my 4 and 5 drops from th main and I'm pretty happy with where it is right now.

Great looking deck, +1. Check out my take on the archetype: Devotion to Darkness. It's quite similar to yours, but there are a few minor divergences.
In regard to the above discussion, I'm running a Desecration Demon in paper as a budget option until I pick up Obliterator #2, and he's been surprisingly effective.

i would make the lands just 4 nykthos and 20 swamp. you don't need fetchlands or shocklands if you're playing a mono colored deck. thats just a waste of life points. Korlash, Heir to Blackblade gets real big real quick and helps mana ramp in mono black.

colton815 Sure. But I've explained why they are in there and the decks like this one that make top 8 at GP's run fetches, Fatal Push, and more often than not Bloodghasts, too. So I dont think you can call it shoehorning them in if it's what the pros are doing.
Also I splashed a drop of red for the sideboard, so I do use the fetches to mana fix in match ups that call for it.
SavageGaul Hell yeah, I had a feeling it would work like that. Have there been any match ups they were bad in?

Victim of Night is pretty bad in the mirror match! :D
Otherwise, it's been great in my experience. It's dead against fringe decks like Zombie/Vampire/Werewolf tribal, which needless to say are not exactly ubiquitous in Modern. As a 1/2-of, even then it will hardly lose you the game. (In my build, any dead cards can find utility as Collective Brutality fuel.) Victim removes every Modern staple creature I can think of besides Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet and Gurmag Angler.

Drop Kalitas, obliterator should be a four of no question.

Have you tried Demigod of Revenge in the deck. A cool deck was on channel fireball a couple weeks back with it and blood moon, could be a post sideboard thing. List here: https://www.channelfireball.com/articles/deck-of-the-day-br-demigod-modern/
