Peat Bog can help you putting some rats earlier. 2 Barren Moor will avoid some floods. And 1-2 Bojuka Bog against tron or any deck that use the grave. Cast Down in the Victim of Night slots and Chainer's Edict in the Diabolic Edict. Maybe 4 Sign in Blood and 19 Relentless Rats, but i'm not sure about it.

As someone who played Mono-B for a while, I appreciate the spirit of this list, so +1 from me.
However, I have some questions and concerns.
Too few lands: If your goal is to ramp into Gary, you'll want to be playing more lands. Likely 23-24 is what you are looking for if you want consistent Gary mana by turn 5.
What's with the white?: Usually you splash white for sideboard cards like Rest in Peace, Stony Silence, etc. Without a listed sideboard I have to presume you are splashing just for Souls and Path, which I wouldn't do personally.
Souls is meant to slow down the board, and works well in a true control strategy where it buys you time, here it just weakens your gameplan. You should be playing more devotion pieces like Geralf's Messenger to try and get an easy kill with Gary. (If you want ultra-budget you could play Nyxathid or some other creature.)
Path? You are in the best removal color in the game. Cards like Victim of Night are cheaper and easier to cast on your budget. With only 4 sources of white mana, that's gonna be a dead card much of the time, and you need removal when you need it, not later.
Vampire Nighthawk: It used to be pretty good, but in 2020 magic it just doesn't compare to other drops in the slot. I would find a different threat that does more for you.
Other Possibilities: There are plenty of cheap, efficient creatures out there. Cards like Kitesail Freebooter are amazing, and more get printed every set. This also depends on your meta, but I think your list could use some tuning. I have a primer for Mono-Black you can view for additional help.

If I was going to spend 20 dollars for a card in this deck it would be Thoughtseize not urbog, as for Fatal Push I'm working towards getting feches but you're right that until then i should put in something else like Victim of Night

Hey man, thanks for the mention. I will be back with comments on your list soon, but very happy that you're having fun with big bad Ihsan. As you noted, my deck opted for some suboptimal card choices based on the fact that I wanted to run an old border theme + some iconic black cards like Black Knight. Luckily, black has had access to some very powerful cards throughout the history of magic. Now if I were to break my theme and go more for power? Hmm... I wouldn't change too much because all the ramp, board wipes and card draw are really objectively just powerful and are the backbone of this deck.That's why we could get away with running some more flavor cards cause they don't really matter so long as your backbone of control, ramp and draw is in there.
That said, we can look into the creature section and switch that up. As for instant speed targeted removal, Victim of Night, Go for the Throat, Snuff Out, Doom Blade for flavor. Personally, I would run only Go For the Throat and Victim of Night. And Innocent Blood (not instant and not targeted but 1 mana 3 for 1 in the early game + brutal after everyone replays their commanders after one of your board wipes). Also currently testing Pharika's Libation and it does work.

Hello! For starters I think your land count is a bit low for your average CMC. You should either add more lands or replace some spells with cheaper and more efficient ones. Vampire of the Dire Moon and Gifted Aetherborn are great cheap drops, giving you life and deterring attacks and blocks with deathtouch. Vampire Nighthawk has the same effect, with flying to boot. Exsanguinate might be easier to play than Debt to the Deathless. Another Wrath or the cheaper alternative Day of Judgment should also be easier to cast than Garruk's Wake. Diabolic Tutor is better than Razaketh's Rite.
For removal you can use Go for the Throat, Victim of Night, Fatal Push, Tragic Slip, etc. I think you have a lot of 1 of's and you could focus your strategy more with better cards and more copies of them. Still, this looks fun to play in multiplayer with friends

I'm not sure if the following cards are remotely playable in constructed.
There are simply better options in these slots, Urge to Feed, Feast of Blood, Victim of Night, Go for the Throat, Duress, Vampire Hexmage, Indulgent Aristocrat, Stromkirk Condemned all would have better utility in the modern format and are all very budget friendly.
