It's no coffers, but it is budget, and if it were to be slotted in here it would not be the worst.

Thanks for the suggestion, forgot to put that one in. I'll probably slot it in on the upgrades

I'm not too big on standard, but I can already tell you want to be playing vehicles, Aethersphere Harvester and maybe Heart of Kiran seems like a good fit here. They have synergy with Night Market Lookout and are evasive threats.
Conditional discard should be in the sideboard. You want to be mainboarding removal, it's what your color does best.
Vraska's Contempt would be good eventually

Since you commented on the primer, I figured I'd send you some love and suggestions, so +1 from me.
Here's my two cents.
I don't know what your budget is, but I'll go as cheap as I can suggestion-wise. My first suggestion would be to find a place to put in Gifted Aetherborn, as it has pretty much become the all-star two-drop of mono-black. A playset of them will easily make your deck have a strong presence against aggressive decks. I'd cut Grim Haruspex becuase while I understand the synergy with Rite of Belzenlok, it really doesn't do well in your three drop slot at all.
Cut Rite of Belzenlok and likely Squelching Leeches for either Lashwrithe or Desecration Demon (Maybe even Erebos's Titan) You really do want 4 drops that win you the game the turn after you get them.
Cut Skirsdag High Priest, the fact that you need a total of three creatures on the board for him to work is pretty ridiculous, given how you want to be winning with Gray Merchant of Asphodel as the top of your curve. I'd seek out either a better two-drop or perhaps a 3-drop like Nyxathid to go in it's place.
Guul Draz Vampire wants to be in a more aggressive deck than this one, I'd probably swap this card out for either a two-drop or removal/discard. As it won't hold up well against most of the decks you'd play at an FNM or something.
Duress is the ultimate budget sideboard card for black players to use for noncreature matchups.
I'd increase land count to make hitting 4-5 mana more consistent.
I know you took a look at the primer, but if you want to look at a more budget list that's closer to what you'd be looking for, I have one here:

First off, thanks for the upvote! I really appreciate it.
While I absolutely love our new modern Cabal Coffers, I really think it just wastes away it's life on the board. I've been playing Mono-black for years now, and I have always found that when you play Liliana of the Veil, pretty much anything you play above 4 cmc looks like discard fodder because that's what will sit in your hand when you get there. Gary is an exception because he just wins games by getting played.
Also, with the amount of black mana symbol requirements this deck has, it becomes difficult to put in cards like Stronghold because I never want it in my hand until at least turn 3-4; and by that point I just want gas, not more swamps.
There also comes a point where we can just cast all our spells we draw anyway, and by that point, ramping to absurd amounts doesn't change much of anything. However, the card could be sweet in something like Death Cloud. I'll be sure to add it to the primer.
