First suggestion is use autocard. Second suggestion is find something better than Abrupt Decay. It's just too narrow for this format.
Look for some way to get Skullbriar from your graveyard to your hand/deck. Might seem counterproductive for him, but once you've had him get Black Sun Zenith'd into oblivion you'll understand. Stitch Together should work.

reanimate, necromancy, rise from the grave and dread return all come to mind. exhume if you're careful about it.
No, he has to get to your HAND. Or he'll keep his-1/-1 counters and come into play, realize he has 0 or less toughness, and die.

You have the option of putting him in the graveyard. It doesn't automatically go.
My friend ran skullbriar for a while but adapted it to ghave before I had the chance to black sun that mother. I'm still a bit sore about it.

How does one use autocard?  I've been trying to figure that out all day...

[ c ] Damnation [ / c ] without the spaces within the brackets.
I played a Skullbriar deck for a while... I ran a a lot of sac outlets to prevent him from getting Zenithed. I would also sac him in response to any regular destruction if it was useful as I had the outlets anyway. I thought it worked better than trying to pull him back to my hand.
