The goal of this deck is to control the board with your sorcery and instant spell, mana-ramp up to big nasty creatures and utilize Liliana's second ability.
Win Condition 1: Control + Sorin's Vengeance
Win Condition 2: Liliana's second ability combined with Inkmoth Nexus or Phyrexian Obliterator
Win Condition 3: Aggro + control
Vengeance actually is one of the win-cons, two of them in the deck and two cards that I can use to search for it. This deck gets so much mana-ramp that its casting cost isn't a problem at all, usually can get it out turn five 50% of the time I have it.
I would have you consider running a total of 6 board wipes (choosing between Mutilate , card:Black Sun's Zenith, and card:Life's Finale) and then run at least 3 card:Curse of Death's Hold. That strategy generally makes them struggle enough that you can drop whatever you want and be completely fine. I'm very partial to card:Life's Finale because you can hit their deck really hard in most decks.
To be honest, I never considered card:Life's Finale in the deck, I will be sure to play with the idea. Thanks a bunch.
On another note, I have made changes to the deck, however have not updated them on here just yet. The main reason for this is because I would like to see how it runs at FNM before posting the list here, just so I don't have to do constant revisions to the online copy.
Well you can only have a total of four Duress in the deck so i'd go 2 mb and 2 sb. and i haven't seen your meta but i know that Go for the Throat is a useful card against other black decks. I'd consider putting in some colorless stuff just because Sword of Feast and Famine kills my mono black deck like no other. If you have any Sorin Markov is in standard until october he'd work nicely with liliana and his vengeance.
