I also like hamstringing my decks for themes. Dunno what your budget is but if you're looking to grab creatures with some better/different utility I've some suggestions.

Have you considered: Abu Ja'far, Serra Ascendant, Hexdrinker, Drowned Rusalka, Giant Killer, Cosi's Trickster, Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip, Hypnotic Siren, Elvish Scrapper, Planar Guide, Giver of Runes, Scavenger Folk, Noble Hierarch, Birds of Paradise, Weathered Wayfarer, Sylvan Safekeeper, Phyrexian Dreadnought, Scute Mob, Hope of Ghirapur Capricopian, Mikaeus, the Lunarch, Devoted Caretaker, Cursecatcher, Elvish Lyrist, Judge's Familiar, Ascendant Spirit, Siren Stormtamer, Honored Hierarch.

Utopia Mycon and Thallid provide slow-growth bodies.

Mother of Runes and Ulvenwald Tracker make for some nifty jank removal with your Sedge Scorpion.

Elvish Reclaimer and Groundskeeper might be worth considering if you add more utility lands.

Also, some Hydras fit the theme of being 1-drops but also give you a mid-to-late game mana sink/beater.

Chasmolinker on Mono Black Nighthawk

Hey mememan3310. First off, welcome back!

Some amount of removal is always necessary. Combo and Flying can be tough match-ups for Mono Black without enough discard/removal. 3-4 Fatal Push and 1-2 Murderous Rider are good options with 1-2 copies of Infernal Grasp I like 6-8 hard removal spells as Mono Black is typically a Mid-Range deck. Don't sleep on Gelatinous Cube either. I've stolen plenty of games with that card.

I would stick with 4 Duress and probably cut Agonizing Remorse since the only thing you really need to hit with discard in Mono-black are Non-creature spells. If you want something more versatile, Thoughtseize is your best option.

Sword-Point Diplomacy is a cute card draw spell, but they probably just let you draw the lands or irrelevant cards, (i.e. creature removal against planeswalkers). I personally prefer Sorin the Mirthless or Reckoner Bankbuster for card draw. Unwilling Ingredient is another pet favorite of mine although probably not what you should be running.

I know a lot of people run Evolved Sleeper The card just doesn't resonate with me. It often dies to removal after you've already sunk your mana into it. It reminds me of Hexdrinker in that it can be great if you max it out but getting there uninterrupted is difficult to pull off. I prefer Concealing Curtains  Flip and Knight of the Ebon Legion in the 1-drop spot.

Gray Merchant of Asphodel or Invoke Despair are two really solid finishers in Mono-Black. If you can swing Liliana of the Veil and Sheoldred, the Apocalypse you won't be disappointed.

There are so many good cards in Mono-Black that it is tough to squeeze everything in sometimes. 22 Lands seems too low. A single Takenuma, Abandoned Mire, Field of Ruin, and Hive of the Eye Tyrant are worth looking at as utility lands. I'd try to get 24-25 lands in there since most of the powerful Mono-Black spells fall in the 3+ MV range.

I do think Hexdrinker could fit in here I’d love to fit a Sheoldred, the Apocalypse as well.

ScOoze adds so much utility with its targeted exile ability I can’t imagine ever putting it on the side. The side right now is just testing slots anyway nothing on there is guaranteed a long term slot.

Believe it or not with 24 lands which is great for Dark Confidant the mana base is pretty shaky as is just because of the inclusion of the 2 white shocks for Damn. I agree that this deck could run on a lower curve just fine but what would I even cut?

Have you thought of Hexdrinker main board instead of scooze? Maybe put the ooze in the sideboard?

I was looking at your Green Deck Wins deck - I definitely suggest that you check out the green deck I linked because it follows a similar strategy and might give you some good ideas. Augur of Autumn is a very powerful card-drawing engine that pairs nicely with the Werewolf Pack Leader. Yorvo and Rhonas are both great 1-of's in the deck, maybe even 2-of's. Scale Up is also a great option for that deck since it can turn one of your hierarchs into a serious surprise beater or it can flat out win the game for you with it's Overload ability. Old-Growth Troll is a card you'll probably automatically add due to its green devotion, trample ability and survivability. Hexdrinker is almost a no-brainer one-drop these days.
