DawnsRayofLight: Thank you, great suggestions!
I am running Counterspell, so I'm not quite sure what you mean about running Stoic Rebuttal over it. I've considered cutting SR a few times for Negate, but I always end up deciding against it, as it's nearly always another Counterspell. This slot is more likely to become Disallow and eventually Force of Will. =)
Absolutely love AEtherize! Used it a lot in standard back in the RTR block; I should definitely find a home for it here! I think I'll definitely consider Aetherspouts as well. Propaganda is really good with the land control, but I always feel like without running a whole Pillow Fort package, it's an enchantment I can't tap for mana. Same kind of feelings for Dissipation Field, despite the strength of the card.
Manascape Refractor is an awesome suggestion that I hadn't considered! Definitely going to look to make room for it. Field and Vale, though, I feel would just slow me down more than they would be beneficial in the face of some of my stax effects. I'd be more inclined to add Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx back into the deck, I think.
This deck honestly doesn't need more win-more cards. I used to have it very full of big value creatures like Darksteel Colossus and Sphinx of the Second Sun that I could turn up with Urza's active, which was fine - but I'd frequently find myself stuck with too many in my early hand, and was way more susceptible to being mana-screwed. At this point I'm down to one big fatty in Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur. All that being said, I am planning to eventually cut God-Pharaoh's Statue for Blightsteel Colossus haha. =P
Metalworker would be a great pickup too, but I'd definitely be more inclined to trade for than buy, and finding someone willing to trade one is easier said than done lol
Thanks again! =)

Interesting to not see any Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx in a devotion deck. Other than that, pretty solid use of my boy Gary

So, on the subject of a monoblack land base...Let's see...
4-8 fetches. As long as it can fetch a basic swamp it's fine.
Shizo, Death's Storehouse is ok if you can fit it.
total 23 lands is the sweet spot for your curve. Maybe 22 because Sorin can mitigate the costs of 4-5 mana vamps.
Speaking of Sorin, if you JUST want a really beefy vampire to drop with him the answer is Chancellor of the Dross. I really prefer Champion though.
Cavern of Souls is nice to have here just as mainboard blue hate, but it's not necessary. I run 2 because I own them irl.

KyleWynne22 if that's the case, you could probably get away just fine with cutting the Survival of the Fittest for Sylvan Library. Of the others you mentioned, the only one of them that I'd say is most needed is the Serra's Sanctum, but then again it's price alone is more than the other three combined. Wheel of Sun and Moon is super nice, but something like Library of Leng is a really budget substitute; only real reason we run Wheel over it is because Wheel is an enchantment. Greater Auramancy just provides additional redundancy that Sterling Grove provides, and you're probably fine with most cards in the maybeboard as a substitute. Deserted Temple you could probably just throw in another basic land. Really it's only purpose is to untap Serra's Sanctum and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx.

Deck looks super fun. A few suggestions: Dark Confidant, Skullclamp, Bolas's Citadel, Toxic Deluge, Yawgmoth, Thran Physician, Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder, Chainer, Dementia Master, Unfortunately, some of those can be expensive. Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Caged Sun, or Gauntlet of Power could really turbocharge the mana base. Hope this helps!

I'm actually building a Sanctum of All Shrine Tribal. It'll have all 11 Shrines plus Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx because while the Shrines are important and beautiful, a Shrine is worthless if you don't have a God to answer your prayers... ;)
