I've been playing Magic since I was in grade school. I found EDH in 2013 and I've never looked back. I'm also my playgroup's resident expert on Black, so fear my formidable powers! In all seriousness though, if you've got any questions about Black, I may be able to help.

The best way I’ve seen (and obviously it’s far from perfect) is to goldfish your decks several times (I would say at least five) and average your turns to victory.

Converting to a 1-10 scale is more difficult. I toyed with some equations. Honestly though average goldfish-turns-to-victory is best in my opinion.

As I recall, Wizards previously stated that they wanted to move away from color-specific hate effects. That was a few years ago I believe.

The issue with destroying a green or white permanent specifically is that it would stray into the really forbidden territory of black: destroying artifacts. Keep in mind, the number of colored artifacts has gone up drastically in the last few years. I just don't think design would do it, as they have also previously stated that not having a good way to deal with artifacts is one of black's major weaknesses.
