I've had this list kicking around a while Mono black deckbuilder's toolbox- glad to see someone is putting together a primer.
Heartless Summoning enables higher CMC play- especially with a full set of kalitas.
Devour Flesh is a decent sideboard card against burn when running creature aggro, and a good non-lifelink lifegain source.
Diregraf Colossus is a notable zombie card and decent beastick,
Everlasting Torment helps fight through lifegain and thrun.
Mimic Vat plays merry hell with regular tron, and has the added bonus of interacting with an opponents graveyard using a replacement effect- handy for those Kitchen Finks. Nantuko Husk sees fringe play in zombie builds.
Fulminator Mage is a three drop.
Memory Plunder is an insane answer to snapcaster/cryptic, and solid against anything that casts big spells (reversing a living end combo).
Panharmonicon deserves a mention for more midrange black, enabling some insane play on decks that survive casting it.
You should probably seperate out the x cost cards- Killing Wave/Damnable Pact/Profane Command aren't really meant to be cast for low values of x, and people looking for that slot are likely to miss them.
White splash is strong in vampire/control builds for access to Blood Baron of Vizkopa, Tithe Drinker, Sorin, Lord of Innistrad,Sorin, Solemn Visitor and the ubiquitus removal suite. Green also gives important access to Collected Company(where Temporal Extortion isn't good enough) and Lotleth Troll, a mainstay for gravecrawler shenanigans and etb stuff.
Anything else I can think of would be specific cards for specific decks. One thing that always shocks my opponents is the sheer versatility you can pack into a black fifteen card sideboard- something transformative to handle bad matchups (graveyard and tron) really does change the shape of your evening, although decklist knowledge will allow players to play around this when the decklists are available, at any other time you can absolutely change the shape of your game. 'side 15' is a real thing.

Thanks for commenting! I always like people who leave constructive comments on decks!
I do like that you have a complete toolbox list, but I do have a few issues with some of these suggestions.
While Memory Plunder could be sweet against living end and control, discard and graveyard hate are far more versatile imo.
However this is simply my critique, I'd like to thank you for maaking so many suggestions

Devour flesh is an instant, and that really matters when you need to maintain card advantage (rakdos burn at the moment), and functions as last ditch defence against infect, boggles and titan. Sometimes you jsut need to ditch that Lashwrithe or Bloodthrone Vampire in the face of a supreme verdict. Its not something that should be in every list, but as a sideboard tool it will really help with some metagames where you need to be good at hitting more than one thing. Most of my suggestions are like that. More neiche choices for settings which aren't major tournaments.
I've run mimic vat a lot because it removes a lot counterplay from the midrange/longrange matchups in a more consistant fashion than whip. Usually a seige rhino is a good thing, but resolve a mimic vat an your opponent will just hold it in hand. Its not a tool intended to be viewed in isolation against a single setup, but as another option- If you know you are going to see meleria combo, it messes with that feircely (by replacing persist triggers on their turn). It really shone in my playtesting, even though I originally included it as a gag.

Since this is a primer, ya gotta add Demigod of Revenge, Korlash, Heir to Blackblade, and Lashwrithe man! Also that 2 mana black counterspell whose name eludes me atm along with other common black removal.
