Lingering Souls can single handedly take over games. It slows aggro, chumps midrange, it's resilient value, works with Ensnaring Bridge and pushes extra damage through.

Myth Realized has sorcery speed protection but really what decks are playing sorcery speed removal?

-4 Myth Realized +4 Lingering Souls

-3 Smallpox + 2 Blackmail & 1 Fatal Push

Cutting Smallpox you can afford to cut some lands to MB Ensnaring Bridge, it's personal taste though.

I think I had Bloodghast in here but cut it for space. I think it's an okay fit but not sure what it should be in place of?

You have to ask yourself, what matches are cards like Thought Scour going to improve??? None? Okay, it's not worth the SB space. The SB should not be deck extensions but cards that improve your match ups against things your weak against. In your case Control of both flavors. I'd also imagine your Burn match is pretty tough.

So for decks like BG/x I would recommend Suppression Field, Bile Blight/Marrow Shards, and stronger grave hate like Leyline of the Void or Rest in Peace. Leyline of Sanctity and Pithing Needle are also valid choices.

As far as traditional control goes, you're really in a bad position. The best SB cards against it are in green (Choke, Thrun, the Last Troll) and the manland game plan isn't particularly viable for you either. Lastly your threat density isn't enough to not have to worry about counters. Hopefully someone else can offer up a viable option for you.

Burn is an easy fix. Dragon's Claw.

A few other cards I would suggest to consider are Anguished Unmaking as a 1 of, Illness in the Ranks, more copies of Stony Silence, and possibly Hurkyl's Recall (can be great vs Affinity but also Infect).

As far as Eldrazi goes. Fulminator Mage and Damnation are good but I feel like your deck can't support those cards. Pithing Needle hits quite a bit of things in their deck (including Oblivion Stone).

MB is viable, SB needs a lot of work.

Yea it's not the greatest. I run a ramp deck that uses it. Expecting 6 lands on the field with a 1/1 that has no protection isn't a reliable win con.

I think you need to focus on a wincon first. Perhaps Death's Shadow.

Anyway I run this when I'm short on time. Red Deck Wins

I really think Dark Confidant should be in this list. You would obviously need to cut stuff like Street Wraith but it'll be better overall.

If you don't own any swords just stick with Lashwrithe.

Sword of Fire and Ice is the best one though. Followed by Sword of Light and Shadow.

Doesn't look too bad as it is.

-3 Go for the Throat and -1 Dismember in exchange for 4x Fatal Push. It's excellent removal and at only 1 mana there is very little reason to not run it as a full playset. Go for the Throat is completely blanked in some matches like Infect and Affinity. Dismember is good but the majority of the time Fatal Push can do the same thing while saving you 4 life. Gurmag Angler does exist though so it's good to keep single copies of additional removal.

I would cut 2x Phyrexian Arena. It's a great card but it's very hard to find time to cast it. I would rather have 2x Bile Blight MB. It's just more useful in more matches. Great anti-Lingering Souls tech.

Your creature base doesn't look very fluid. A few options I would consider are Gurmag Angler, Geralf's Messenger, Herald of Torment, Vampire Nighthawk and Asylum Visitor.

Lashwrithe is good, do you own any swords though? I feel like a sword could pair better with Bitterblossom.

Lastly SB options, I would include 2-3 Demon's Horn to counter all the life loss. Rain of Tears and Nihil Spellbomb are also good.

I'll help you out once you share the list. As is, sounds a bit slow for modern.

To repeat what's already been stated. Abyssal Persecutor is the best mono black midrange wincon in modern. Nyxathid and Death's Shadow are pretty good but both are also build around cards.
