If you control a Swamp, you may pay 4 life rather than pay Snuff Out's mana cost.
Destroy target nonblack creature. It can't be regenerated.

Cool deck! I love the concept and some of the more niche cards here.
Mogg Salvage is a slam dunk here. Free spells in general will enable you to tap out for Jeremy Renner more often and still be able to use him in a pinch. Maybe Snuff Out and Thunderclap are worth considering too. I'm not sure I'd go as far as Gut Shot and Pyrokinesis but you could think about it. Corpse Dance and Slaughter give you as many Tor triggers as you can pay for with the buyback. You Are Already Dead can be like a one-time Bladebrand and it cantrips which I feel like is pretty important for your deck. On that note, you might want some more card draw

Profet93 Thanks for the suggestion! The deal is that Chainer's Edict flashback becomes extremely relevant, I've been playing mono B for years and we never really had a strong card advantage engine so having singular cards that replace themselves or give card advantage becomes really fundamental, especially since this deck can really drag out games with all the removal, plus more removal late game can be really cluch since most decks now have singular chuncky boys as win cons (gone are the days of Atog + Fling thankfully). As for the life loss I 100% agree and I've always been against Snuff Out in mono B. However, now that turn 2 Tolarian Terror is a thing, having two Snuff Out in my experience does save some games since you don't have to wait for turn 4 to Cast Down it and hope they don't have a Counterspell or Spell Pierce. Before Tolarian Terror was meta, instead of Snuff Out I had the second Crypt Rats and Oubliette in the main and an Okiba-Gang Shinobi in the side. This would honestly be my favorite version, maybe when Tolarian Terror isn't so prevalent or if you don't play that much against it I would recommend these cards. Really appreciate that you like the deck!

I completely forgot Withering Boon existed and immediately ordered one for this deck lmao I also like the addition of Snuff Out but I'm not yet sure what I would take out for it. Definitely a great consideration though. Thank you!

Alright. Have you considered Snuff Out? It's alternate cost is perfect in a deck like this.
I also run Withering Boon in all my mono black Commander decks, as nobody expects a counter from black, and it can get around hexproof commanders. I know you're unlikely to play it on your own turn so it won't trigger Morty, but it's still great.

Finally, Damnation can net you a very strong effect on the field with all your reanimation effects, and Murder is not a very good removal spell. I would consider Snuff Out, Doom Blade, Heartless Act, Infernal Grasp, Walk the Plank, Victim of Night, etc.

a few other options that came to mind that might be a good option.

DreadKhan I have been asking with my most destructive friends, who help me with my most hateful decks like this one, and we have seen that Snuff Out is hard to cast for the alternative cost since I only run like 8 swamps, and all the MLD I run it's even harder, and the Price of Fame is so useful bc of the big and flyer commanders I'm used to see, and the surveil is a great selection. For the moment I will not put it inside. But the Phyrexian Purge, they have said that it's a very good option, but what you were saying with the 3 dmg wraths, my playgroup is more like swarm decks, small creatures rather than big beefy 8/8 or something, so the 3 dmg wraths are pretty good, and I have consulted the option of Fire Covenant, but the instant speed and the mana less to kill all the 2/2 and 1/1 is better than 3 life per creature. I have very few matchups where purge is better than fire covenant. I thought the swap for Last One Standing, but it's still in process of studying. Very helpful the ideas and I appreciate them a lot bud :)
