You are both rational and emotional. You value creation and discovery, and feel strongly about what I create. At best, you're innovative and intuitive. At worst, you're scattered and unpredictable.
Chalice of life only belongs in certain life gaining decks, replace it.

Mind rot is not nearly as good as hymn, replace them with hypnotic specter

Skeletal grimace is not a good idea, replace it with something that reanimates or has some graveyard effect. corpse dance is funny in black. If you want something that buffs I would suggest a living weapon of some kind or some card draw.

Running priest of gix and 4 dark rituals you really want to center in on the 3 cmc slot. You really should be running at least 2 other playsets of 3 cmc effects. Running 4 hippies should be half of them. Royal assasins if you have any. Maybe sorceress queens or some reanimation.

While I respect your husband's deck for having cool old school creatures like Laquatus's Champion and Chainer it's a little scatterbrained when it comes to focus. I agree that chalice should go, along with [C]Daggerdrome Imp[/c]. Next, I agree with Skein, in that your husband's deck can really abuse the three Cmc slot. Up the count on Priest of Gix to 4, and run Hypnotic Specter or Vampire nighthawk. If your husband really wants to keep something like Vicious Hunger I'd replace them with Sorin's Thirst.
When I hear Nightmare, I think Nightmare. It's a rare, and not in Standard, but there you go.
