I belive that is correct. Think of it like this. I can't use Royal Assassin if there's no tapped creatures. Even though Royal Assassin is tapped and could target its self, it can't even be activated beforehand because there is no legal target befor the cost is paid.

Ezuri's Predation has a ruling that states, Players can’t cast spells or activate any abilities in between the Beasts entering the battlefield and fighting the other creatures. If the Beasts entering the battlefield cause any abilities to trigger, those abilities will be put onto the stack after Ezuri’s Predation is finished resolving.

If you used Esix, Fractal Bloom to target Royal Assassin, do the Beasts enter the battlefield then fight, then transform into royal assassins since Esix would be unable to trigger until after Ezuri resolves?

No problem man. Looking closer at your deck, I would try this:

If you can afford dual lands like Watery Grave or Drowned Catacomb it would also help a lot

Definitely need some Inquisition of Kozilek to round out the Thoughtseize for your discard suite (I recommend a full playset).

4 Ultimate Price is a mistake. There are better removal options in GB colors (like Victim of Night , Go for the Throat ).

Have you considered running the OG assassin, Royal Assassin ?

Royal Assassin not a blocker but stops fatty from swinging
Every creature is an amazing blocker when you have Vigor on the battle field
Also Tuktuk the Explorer , and Reef Worm makes them think twice
my favorite is AEther Membrane I know you said no defender but it's still worth mentioning

Looking at this, it feels like it's trying for Assassin tribal, but you only have 10 Assassins for your Scarblade Elite , and I'm not quite sure what the intent of Emrakul, the Promised End is. I would switch out some of your conditional creature-kill instants and sorceries for more cards like Nekrataal , Nightshade Assassin , and Royal Assassin .

Royal Assassin strikes again...

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!
