From a lot of the cards I'm seeing here, I'm getting the impression that you really care about swamps (Cabal Coffers, Crypt Ghast, Defile, Mutilate, etc.). Maybe a Liliana of the Dark Realms would fit in here?

The Price range between Cabal Coffers and Cabal Stronghold is huge considering the one mana ability cost diference :S...Crypt Ghast and Magus of the Coffers are good options aswell

You are also gonna want Crypt Ghast. You may also want to consider Nirkana Revenant and/or Magus of the Coffers

If the deck was Mono-Black, the card you saw was probably Crypt Ghast.

My recommendations :

I think most people will tell you that Oloro offers little competitive advantage to you compared to other esper commander like Zur (who can fetch Necropotence into play) or even Aminatou (who is a combo piece in the command zone). I think upsides for Oloro would be that he can do larger ad nauseam and possibly can even run Humility which few decks can win while it is on the board.

LOW IMPACT:

Teferi's Protection

Rhox Faithmender

Debt to the Deathless

Despark

MANA COST TOO HIGH

Merciless Eviction

Anguished Unmaking

Disallow

Thran Dynamo

TOO SLOW

Mox Tantalite

Phyrexian Arena

Twilight Prophet

Crypt Ghast

Winds of Abandon

Vindicate

Search for Azcanta  Flip

I would first add better ramp, better draw, potential Stax, tutors and then other win cons.

Thanks! It's always nice to hear from a deck-builder more experienced than myself that they think my deck has been built well.

I'd have to look into Gary, but I'm not sure about him. Seems like a worse Kokusho in this deck.

Crypt Ghast is something I have considered multiple times, but I've never been quite sure about it. It does pair really well with Urborg; though I'm not sure how often it would happen since I don't really run tutors.

Thanks again, you've definitely given me some stuff to think about!

This deck is seriously well built and amazing, while it doesn't really fit the theme of the deck have you ever thought of adding in Gray Merchant of Asphodel into the deck it could just hit rather hard and gain you a lot of life at once. Have you also considered adding in Crypt Ghast for a little bit of ramp since all of your lands are swamps from Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth
