Converting Pauper to Modern part 3: Mono Black Control

Part 1 (Stompy and Delver) here:
Part 2 (Angler Delver) here:

In this series we are trying to convert Pauper decks to Modern. This week we will look at Mono Black Control, also known as MBC. I worked on this for two weeks before coming way too close to Mono Black Devotion. This is the list I ended up with:

Deck list
18 Swamp
1 Dakmor Salvage
2 Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx
2 Whip of Erebos
4 Gatekeeper of Malakir
1 Slaughter Pact
4 Gray Merchant of Asphodel
4 Thoughtseize
3 Phyrexian Arena
1 Victim of Night
1 Murderous Cut
4 Vampire Nighthawk
2 Profane Command
2 Mutavault
1 Bojuka Bog
2 Disfigure
2 Go for the Throat
2 Gurmag Angler
2 Dark Confidant
2 Pack Rat

4 Geth's Verdict
1 Ghost Quarter
2 Nihil Spellbomb
4 Duress
4 Fulminator Mage

A sample match with MBC:

The idea is to build a budget Modern deck that resembles the Pauper deck. What changes would you make? What would you take out? What would you bring in instead? When suggesting changes, keep in mind that we are under heavy budget restrictions here.

Next week: Another one of my recent experiments - DelverFiend!

Stay tuned for more Pauper to Modern deck conversions.
