I've been playing Magic since I was in grade school. I found EDH about three years ago and I've never looked back. I'm also my playgroup's resident expert on Black, so fear my formidable powers! In all seriousness though, if you've got any questions about Black, I may be able to help.

Last_Laugh: Together Forever does seem interesting! It's one of those cards that slinks under the radar in a "less played" set like Battlebond. I may have to check it out, for now I want to see how Etchings of the Chosen works out. SO far it has done very well in the few matches it has come up.

I am super conscious of the need to improve my card draw, that said I think I'm going to have to respectfully disagree on the power of one-time draw. One-time draw is super consistent and actually does stuff the turn you throw it unlike cards like Dark Prophecy . Speaking of Dark Prophecy , I tried running Skullclamp at one point ant my deck ran into two issues with it. First, my vampires are usually way to strong to just die to Skullclamp . My tokens are usually 2/2's at the minimum I'd say 90% of games. Tied to that, I don't a sufficient number of sacrifice outlets to fuel cards like Skullclamp and Dark Prophecy . If anything I'm likely to add cards like Night's Whisper or Syphon Mind as they give you instantaneous draw and are more color friendly. I also already run Herald's Horn , great card and I'm glad I bought a precon because of that price tag on an uncommon!

Funny story about Reconnaissance , a friend of mine at my LGS showed it to me, and I loved it! Picked it up for a couple bucks and I worked it in pretty early in the deck's life cycle. It puts up great results every time it comes out!

Addressing point number three, when I think of powerful flicker spells I always think of Ghostway or the very similar Eerie Interlude .

Hands down the best reanimator commander in mono-black is Chainer, Dementia Master . Three life for an Eldrazi? Yes, please. As for mono-black in general, I always suggest running the standard black ramp package to help fuel your expensive spells.
