love the idea and got a lot of great cards you should consider: Erebos, God of the Dead i might run 3 of these boys. obv choice with black devotion.

Crypt Ghast is gonna pop off in this deck, no doubt. Royal Assassin as well. I'd ditch the Nightveil Specter since they could easily be replaced with Vampire Nighthawk for way more value. also consider Bloodsoaked Champion

Liliana of the Dark Realms is a bit pricey but god damn if she isnt UNREAL with black devo decks. also maybe crank it to 4 Phyrexian Obliterator and 4 Gray Merchant of Asphodel

mono black has a lot of strong control, as well. Inquisition of Kozilek , Hero's Downfall , Fatal Push are all cheap and CRAZY effective.

As far as sweet hybrid cards go, I'd consider Fiend Artisan and Ashenmoor Liege , otherwise not too many other cool ones come to mind but hopefully this advice helps!

I'm glad you like it, cmilner! I was thinking about adding the Dark Depths and Thespian's Stage combo, but I decided not to do it, because I would be too tempted to search for them every time. It's the same reason I'm not including Triskelion or Walking Ballista , even though Mikaeus would be happy to have them. When it comes to Phyrexian Obliterator , I'm constantly thinking about replacing it with Phyrexian Delver , but I can't bring myself to cut what may be one of my favorite magic cards, even though I'm pretty sure the Delver would be much more syngergistic. I'm hung up on one day casting Necromancy or Chord of Calling and blocking some 15/15 with the Obliterator :D Also, lately I've been thinking about replacing Lightning Greaves with the new Rushed Rebirth from Strixhaven. Seems like a perfect card for this deck. The only problem is it's mostly a one and done effect.

I have Witchbane Orb on the battlefield already. Let's say my opponent has either Phyrexian Obliterator , or Hellkite Tyrant on the battlefield. Do there triggered abilities still trigger if i have hexproof already?

Nice deck. Triskaidekaphobia , Phyrexian Obliterator , and Curtains' Call are pretty sweet cards that I didn't know existed. Just a few ideas. Since you're already running Expedition Map , throw in another haymaker land like Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx . Also, I'm not sure you have enough ETB effects to make Panharmonicon worth the include. Finally this mono black lifegain is begging for Necropotence .

There are a few ways around Phyrexian Obliterator 's ability, though Pithing Needle is not one. You could counter with something like Voidslime , though you'll have to do this every time. You could also remove the ability with a card like Kenrith's Transformation or Frogify .

Of course, the best way is to use Justice Strike and see if that makes them concede.

@Delphen7: The trigger condition for Phyrexian Obliterator 's last ability is "whenever a source deals damage to phyrexian obliterator", hence why it is a triggered ability and not a static ability.

Phyrexian Obliterator 's last ability is not a static or activated ability. It is a triggered ability. Triggered abilities begin with "When/Whenever/At..."

From the Comprehensive Rules:

603.1. Triggered abilities have a trigger condition and an effect. They are written as “[When/Whenever/At] [trigger condition or event], [effect]. [Instructions (if any).]”
