Tymaret, Chosen from Death
Legendary Enchantment Creature — Demigod
Tymaret's toughness is equal to your devotion to black. (Each in the mana costs of permanents you control counts toward your devotion to black.)
: Exile up to two target cards from graveyards. You gain 1 life for each creature card exiled this way.

I think the deck is fine but I just want to give my suggestions for your consideration.
So, I would recommend you remove -2 Liliana, the Last Hope for +1 The Meathook Massacre and +1 Dark Prophecy. These cards are better for your devotion and are also more Strange and Unusual. You can also probably -1 land for +1 Inquisition of Kozilek.
Also, I think fitting in 1 or 2 Bitterblossom for the main or side so you can grind just a little better. Then, Tymaret, Chosen from Death plus Arguel's Blood Fast Flip can be an interesting combination if you are really committed to black devotion.

Fenlurker is a bit of a pet card, but the 2 pips and built in hand disruption feel nice. Also considering Tymaret, Chosen from Death as built in mainboard yard hate may make game one a little stronger (arguably stronger as it can trade efficiently while keeping the 2 pips)

I just want to see what other people think of this (possible?) interation: Tymaret, Chosen from Death + Heron of Hope or similar type effect that says "If you gain life, you gain that much +1". After rereading Timmy I think I won't get what I want, since the lifegain is only triggered when a creature card gets exiled.
My original thought was to not exile any cards or exile noncreature cards, I would gain 0 life +1. I think the 0 would just not exist at all.

Suggestions Punish people for playing spells: Painful Quandary,
Ramp: Crypt Ghast (will go in every black deck you make, worth the $10)
Graveyard Hate: Especially important in control decks where you'll be blowing up the board and wheeling people's hands. Leyline of the Void, Tymaret, Chosen from Death, Withered Wretch, Soul-Guide Lantern

Nykthos, Lashwrithe, and Malakir Rebirth are all 3 I've heard of and/or have considered for this deck. Granted Nykthos is pretty pricey xD but it would be such a great acquisition. I really like the other recommendations Brasslord, I am keeping a list of possible cards to look into and try to figure out how they'll fit into my deck and what direction they'll take them.
I also have my eye on Thoughtseize, Leyline of the Void, Phyrexian Obliterator, though those prices are a big obstacle obviously haha Nightmare Shepherd, Fatal Push, Yarok's Fenlurker, Tymaret, Chosen from Death, Bolas's Citadel, and Ayara, First of Lochthwain are all ones that I've seen, heard of, and various ones have been cards I've been told to look into. So I have my work cut out for me to figure out which are worth it and will actually bump this deck up unless I want just a 100 card deck of all of the above lol...

This deck is so much freaking fun to play, especially if you like old-school 'fair' type decks. Just love how interactive it is.
I haven't played much since the pandemic hit (do people actually still play Modern?), so I haven't had a chance to really review the newer sets - can anyone offer suggestions on how the deck can be improved, particularly with regards to the side-board? It's balanced pretty well right now with a smooth-as-silk mana curve.
Keeping in mind the amount of life-gain in this deck, some of the cards I've been tinkering with (to replace Tymaret, Chosen from Death) are a one-of Killing Wave, Collective Brutality, Essence Harvest, Stain the Mind, Dismember and Torment of Hailfire. Creature-wise I'm also thinking a one-of Mogis's Marauder as a sort of timely finisher or a Nightmare Shepherd.
Would Gatekeeper of Malakir be an improvement on Geralf's Messenger here? I feel like between the hand destruction, all the deathtouch and the set of Murderous Rider I don't actually need that much more creature removal, especially if my opponent gets to choose who goes.
Regarding sideboard, do I need a better means of dealing with Artifacts or Land? If so, what would you suggest?

Metroid_Hybrid, no I just meant that with no other artifacts in my deck that Lashwrithe would draw every bit of artifact hate they had. What, exactly, are the benefits of a 'living weapon'? I read the card but I don't get it.
Btw, been looking for Tymaret, Chosen from Death and finally found it. Trying to decide if I want one or two, but it helps my turn two options.
