Currently, this is what I have as my deck irl and what I plan to be taking to Game Day coming up. Expecting there to be a lot of creature-based decks in the current standard, so expecting this to perform greatly. Unfortunately, Liliana of the Veil is a bit too pricey for me, so I don't have any of those to add. :(

If you can get them, I suggest atleast 2 cavern of souls just to block a counter spell potentially. I do worry about your early game though. If you get out a night hawk then you could possibly stabalize before aggro could kill you but if you are playing a control heavy meta then your deck is solid in my opinion. I like thrull parasite from the new set.

Yeah, no way I can afford Caverns, unfortunately, but counterspells aren't really existent right now anyway, fortunately.

 

The Nighthawks, Dead Weights, Mutilates, Tributes, Murders and Curse of Death's Hold have proven to be plenty for the deck to have game against aggro in testing, then a Crypt Ghast can just let the deck go way over the top of them. Not to mention I get to side in even more good cards vs aggro.

 

As much as Thrull Parasite is one of my favourite cards from GTC, I can't find a way for it to be useful against any deck other cards don't already do a better job against. :(
