My 1st Modern Deck Idea- Black Card Advantage Rat Deck

I've never heard of Modern untill recently and this is the first Modern deck idea that I have. The idea is to win via card advantage, and aggro rats. Any advice would be appreciated. The deck has:

4x Unmake
4x Duress
4x Phyrexian Arena

4x Shimian Specter
4x Dark Confidant
4x Korlash, Heir to Blackblade
1x Sygg, River Cutthroat
1x Nezumi Shortfang
1x Nezumi Graverobber
1x Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni
4x chittering rats
4x Typhoid Rats
4x Pack Rat

4x Swarmyard
16x Swamp

Are there any cards like Drain Life in Modern? I feel like that card would go a long way in my deck, with Korlash getting me extra swamps and Dark Confidant and Phyrexian Arena costing me life every turn.

You posted saying my thread was moved/locked but nothing happened.

Unfortunately, VCLs do not currently have the tools necessary to take moderation actions directly. VCLs submit their actions to ORCs, who then actually perform the action. This processing can take between a few minutes and several hours, depending on how busy/attentive the ORCs are.

If you see something that needs VCL attention, please use this thread to make a request and a VCL will look at it as soon as possible. CoC violations should be reported to Customer Service using the "report post" button. Please do not disrupt the thread by making requests of either kind in-thread.
