Nice Deck....try adding some Dash Hopes Buy or maybe even Smallpox Buy Might Fit Nicely

ok
well i have to say that your first 3 turns (as you've planned them out) look very good,
but c'mon man. for a deck that's highest casting cost is......4 i think
WHY 20 LANDS!!!!
take out oh....say....about.....4-5 and put in Dusk Urchins Buy for early game w/ dark ritual and draw card
or even Diabolic Tutor Buy for search
thanks for the rate

Thanks. I'll look into that, don't know names for all the great black cards but those two might work. Just gotta figure out what to work out. Think I would be okay just running 16 Lands?

I could see this deck really coming together and pissing some people off. The combos you have I would work wonders with the rest of your deck. Overall I think it's a great deck

This deck looks pretty fun! One creature I'd consider that fits the theme is Fleshbag Marauder Buy, as he makes people sacrifice creatures too. Magus of the Abyss Buy could work, too. I wouldn't go below 20 lands, it seems fine :-)

the control of this deck is amazing for black. i would love to play against this deck with my zombie deck or 2hg together. overall this is one of the most original decks i have seen in a while.

Braids is a nasty little devil. I like how your deck has four of most cards which will get your smaller combos you mentioned out alot quicker. I think the deck is quick and the mana curve is just right. The only thing I worry about is the later game. Maybe try and fit some fear into the deck to try and get those small creatures through alot easier. Thanks for the comment on my Phages Kiss deck. I will update it and explain the deck from my point of view. Maybe you could take a look at it then. Nice deck!

Very controlling deck...pretty solid. But is Bitter Ordeal Buy that good with this deck? or do you often find it a dead card in your hand?

Always looking for tips and stuff. Bitter Ordeal Buy has been useful believe it or not.

Very nice black control, which is something you don't see much of at all. I really think you should run Unearth Buy rather than that other recursion card. I know that the other card can get back your Braids back which Unearth cannot, but I think that because Unearth is so cheap and could also let you draw, it might be worth a shot. I really, really like Will-o'-the-Wisp...it's one of my favorite black cards. I think, though, that you need a little more agression out of that position. I know Will-o can be the answer to a huge creature, but you might want to try something like Natuko Shade too.
All in all, a great...mine are only suggestions.

Thanks for the rate. If you do end up testing that Blue Green Aggro deck of mine, please let me know how it goes.

One of my friends runs a deck with a similar concept although yours appears to be much more refined.

Trying out Crypt of Agadeem Buy doesn't seem like a bad idea. And since your curve falls between 1-4, it shouldn't be too hard to make effective use of it. You could also look into Bloodghast Buy or Nether Shadow Buy for some more cheap reanimating creatures. I could also see Haunting Echoes Buy being absolutely devastating in this deck.

As for sideboard options, Vampire Hexmage Buy can be used to deal with Planeswalkers since only creatures, artifacts, enchantments, and lands can be sacrificed with Braids, and only creatures with Grave Pact. You could also use Thoughtseize Buy, Duress Buy, or Sadistic Sacrament Buy for more non-board control options.Black Knight Buy is always a safe option, too, especially since white has a lot of removal these days.

Overall, you've got an incredibly solid deck that might only need minor, if any, tweaking.
