I have really enjoyed playing brawl with the new Erebos. I am tempted to make a paper version for EDH. The things that I like is that I can often get "under" peoples defenses. Part of that is I have a fair amount of small, deathtouch creatures. I also have some "bleeders" that chip away a little at a time, until Gary shows up. I do want to try to keep my devotion high, so when Gray Merchant of Asphodel comes he drains for 10+. I do not plan on playing tutors but I do have a decent collection and I am willing to trade/buy for some of the more expensive options. I don't think Oubliette is worth the $15ish as I won't really be messing with flickering my own creatures even though I guess it does add 2 devotion. I keep forgetting to remove the Agonizing Remorse too... In the past I did run discard in EDH mostly to get people to stop holding things and start interacting more, but as that was a very specific meta, I doubt it is worth running 1:1 discard typically.

Necropotence is a great source of draw and devotion.

Grave Pact is great multiplayer removal and also helps your devotion. Dictate of Erebos is great too.

Yeah, Necropotence is definitely going in, I don't really want to go the Grave Pact etc. route. I have had a Savra, Queen of the Golgari deck in the past that did that and it wasn't fun to play with or against. Maybe being a mono-black deck I might "need" that to compete in a higher level meta. I don't really have a place to play at the moment (to be fair I guess everybody is in that boat at the moment), so I don't really have that type of pressure. I think I will just build it with what I have and then tune it with cards as I get them. I don't currently own a paper Erebos so I think I will put in an order for the following:

Agent of Erebos (Which sadly doesn't give much devotion)
Attrition
Bad Moon
Black Market
Curse of Disturbance
Dark Prophecy
Dawn of the Dead
Deathgrip
Doomwake Giant
Both Erebos
Font of Agonies
Gate to Phyrexia
Grave Betrayal
Liliana's Contract
Marchesa's Decree
Necropotence
No Mercy
Palace Siege
Phyrexian Arena
Phyrexian Etchings
Revel in Riches
Season of the Witch
Tombstone Stairwell
