Clearly, there’s tools for it now.
[card]Dromoka’s Command[/card] and [card]Back to Nature[/card] is going to be a problem for this deck, because this deck is going to use plenty of enchantments, but who cares? Its monoblack.
First, we need a curve or sorts. There’s one 1-drop that’s an easy choice: [card]Bloodsoaked Champion[/card]. Others… not so much. Not that you need any. This format is slow, and you aren’t trying to kill fast, so its just a good, resilient threat, like many of the other cards in the deck.
Other creatures we might want? For 2-drops, the [card]Despoiler of Souls[/card] is a good start, but I’d like to play some [card]Pain Seer[/card]s as well. Sure, this is going to hurt against burn and other fast decks, but we’ll have lifegain, so no problem there.
For 3-drops Liliana is nice, but we’ll need more. Probably [card]Herald of Torment[/card]. I love that card. Its just pretty bad right now, at least in my home meta.
For 4-drops… [card]Titan of Erebos[/card], maybe [card]Erebos, God of the Dead[/card] himself as well.
Then, of course, [card]Gray Merchant of Asphodel[/card].
Spells? [card]Sign in Blood[/card], of course. It’ll help us draw cards for the Titan and it will also play the part of [card]Underworld Connections[/card] a little bit. Maybe one [card]Read the Bones[/card] as well. Of course, some removal and maybe a [card]Whip of Erebos[/card] or two.

For sideboard, maybe a few lands (so that you can take out the painful draw and not lose because you can’t draw lands. Probably a somewhat transformative approach couldn’t hurt either. We have plenty of lifegain already, so you don’t probably need any of that. Some discard for control decks would be nice too.
