StarstormKK thanks for your comment! The cards you suggested are interesting but i guess adding some creatures isn’t working for my deck,with fewer enchantment and removals would not reach the target. I put Serrated Scorpion because it’s too strong and I couldn’t give it up. Maybe the best thing is to think of a whole new deck based on a creatures and not about enchantment. However they are great suggestions,put all in maybeboard. Give me your opinion on the other decks and if you are interested in my work add me for friend ^^

Well, this isn't a bad start! Usually, Vito decks are Orzhov because white has so much lifegain. If you're determined to stay mono-black though, let's get started.
Underwhelming cards: Piper of the Swarm , Sanitarium Skeleton isn't Standard-legal, and Liliana, Death Mage . These just have nothing to do with your deck and don't belong. Lampad of Death's Vigil , sacrificing a creature is just too steep a cost unless you go the full route of making this a sacrifice deck (not impossible here, although it works best in Rakdos).
Cards to have instead: The fourth Vito. He's absolutely critical to your deck, so you need four even if he's legendary. Your opponents will kill him a lot, so you'll want that extra copy in your hand anyway. Gray Merchant of Asphodel . At a minimum, he drains for two. With Ayara and a lot of static permanents in the deck, it's likely to be a lot more! Duskwielder is a possibility if you needed early things, as is Serrated Scorpion . Marauding Blight-Priest is essentially a redundancy for Vito in this deck.
With a mono-colored mana base, you've got tons of freedom here. Castle Locthwain is an instant four-of in my opinion, and if you're finding that you have turns where you just do nothing, make all your swamps snow and put in Faceless Haven .

If you want a handy stable of one-drops to sacrifice, I think Serrated Scorpion would be a good fit! If it lops two points off your opponent's life total, that means your Demon will be able to kill him in two hits rather than three!

Thanks, its a reanimator deck focused on card draw through graveyard hate, reanimating with Reaping the Graves and winning with cards and combos like Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose + storming off with Tendrils of Agony and either Burnt Offering or Culling the Weak on Serrated Scorpion or Blood Pet to generate more storm count and mana. It has ways to deal with hexproof or shroud with Innocent Blood and normal removal with Bloodchief's Thirst

I run a similar deck but I threw in some Bastion of Remembrance and Serrated Scorpion for chump blockers. Also use the black shrine (blanking on the name atm) paired with Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose for life gain. Foreboding Fruit is good to add also.

I would definitely recommend playing Lurrus of the Dream-Den here, especially since you already meet the requirements and it will only set you back around $5. You can get some crazy value out of recurring auras like Mire's Grasp or Dead Weight with Hateful Eidolon or just keep recurring your own stuff like Knight of the Ebon Legion and swing for the win. Alternatively, you could run Obosh, the Preypiercer, but I don't really see him fitting in too well here. I would recommend putting in two more Castle Locthwain if your can afford it, and Serrated Scorpion is better than Vampire of the Dire Moon IMO, especially with Lurrus.

I don't know if I agree with the Mob suggestion. You want to be the aggressor, so skipping half or your entire combat to get a kill spell seems wrong. A common play pattern in aggresive decks like this one is removing someones blocker, then attacking, which is hard to do with Mob. I would though recommend Serrated Scorpion, as it has proven itself to me time and time again in a list of mine, not to dissimilar of yours.

Thanks for the suggestions pretendingtoalright. I recently took out the Sifter of Skulls and Pawn of Ulamog for Furnace Celebration and Serrated Scorpion. I have only played one game so far with this deck as my play group only gets together once a month or so. I need to play a few more games with it to see where it needs some more help. The first game was fun though, one friend played a board wipe and I was able to keep Yahenni, Undying Partisan and he was huge. I didn't win the game but the deck seemed to be working well until I ate a bunch of poison counters >_<
