To stay more in black, I would consider some sort of vampire sacrifice, counters, and/or lifedrain strategy. Your black cards that could work well in such a deck would be Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim , Embodiment of Agonies , Kambal, Consul of Allocation , Knight of the Ebon Legion , Mortician Beetle , Souls of the Faultless , Castigate , Disentomb , Gerrard's Verdict , Revival / Revenge , Despark , and Grim Return . Most of the other black cards are at least playable as well. The only two I'd cut in most circumstances are Underworld Dreams and In Garruk's Wake . The former needs more build-around while the latter just costs too much to be a consistent boardwipe.
Cards I'd look at adding for such a build might be Gatekeeper of Malakir , Anowon, the Ruin Sage , Sangromancer , Dictate of Erebos , Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet , Victim of Night , Indulgent Aristocrat , Pawn of Ulamog , Grim Haruspex , Silversmote Ghoul , Yahenni, Undying Partisan , Vampire Nighthawk , Vampire of the Dire Moon , Malakir Cullblade , Blood Artist , Urge to Feed , Feast of Blood , Heliod, Sun-Crowned , Archangel of Thune , Cruel Celebrant , Drana's Emissary , Indulging Patrician , Malakir Bloodwitch , Marauding Blight-Priest , Sanctum Seeker , Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose , and Pious Evangel Flip.

Mtg_Mega_Nerds thanks for your comment! Sovereign's Bite is alredy present in 4X, Underworld Dreams it's not in budget. Retreat to Hagra it's a good card but i can't use the first ability,i have only four creatures. Anyway thanks for the ideas!

Hey BlackGtitan, thank you for your compliments and for sharing your experience! I’m glad you enjoy the deck.
While Teferi's Puzzle Box is not an ideal fit for this deck since it throws off my own plans too much, it would be a better fit in a pain-upon-drawing build designed to take advantage of it, as you suggested. Cards like Underworld Dreams would deal lots of damage.

It can often be bad manners to put silver bullet cards in the mainboard. Usually, you'd put such cards in the side and swap them in for games 2 and 3. I know a lot of casual playgroups don't play best 2 out of 3 though, so if this player is using that deck a lot and consistently winning off of a single card, they can't really be surprised if you include some way to answer it in the 60. That said, Duress and Languish effects are the kinds of answers that are extremely common in black anyway. I personally wouldn't bat an eye at seeing them here. Underworld Dreams and Fate Unraveler , definitely not so much.
What is the card in question, by the way? That will obviously affect what's an appropriate response. When I played modern elves, it was pretty rare to bother with drawing the deck when you could just dump it with Collected Company and Genesis Wave . But, from playing other green decks over the years, cards like Lifecrafter's Bestiary , The Great Henge , Vanquisher's Banner , Beast Whisperer , Soul of the Harvest , Primordial Sage , Zendikar Resurgent , Glimpse of Nature , and Regal Force are what come to mind. For the creatures, they would be easy enough to deal with given enough Murder s. For the artifacts, things are rough. Black really hates destroying artifacts, so the very weak Phyrexian Tribute was the best option I could find. However, there is always the nuclear option of running Extirpate or Surgical Extraction with discard to essentially lock a single card out of the game. These are very much sideboard cards though, so running them main has a good chance of drawing a negative reaction.

Straight up, I don't think I've ever seen a non-proxy Damnation cast in real life. Anyway, if you're struggling against some sort of elf combo, maybe add hand disruption to slow down or stop them. Thoughtseize and Inquisition of Kozilek are the classic picks, but I also like Collective Brutality and Harsh Scrutiny for more narrow applications. Or, if you're looking to punish the draw, Underworld Dreams or a splashed Notion Thief could be pretty funny, albeit less effective. A final suggestion might be type-hate cards. Plague Engineer naming elf and Crippling Fear naming vampire might get the job done but would probably require removing Ayara.
