Hitman (Cost)- You may cast this creature for its hitman cost. If you do, it enters play with a hitman counter on it. Whenever it deals combt damage to a player, sacrifice it.


Deathmask Recruit    2B
Lifelink
Hitman: B
2/2
      
 Deathmask Hunter    4B
Hitman: BBB
4/2


Horned Mercenary    3RRR
Haste
"   " attacks each turn if able.
Hitman: 3R
5/1                


Cunning Assassin   2UB
Flash
Hitman: 1UB
Whenever " " damages a player, draw a card.
1/3


It's like Unleash, but different.



Marked for Death    BB
Enchantment- Aura
Whenever enchanted creature blocks or becomes blocked by an assassin creature, destroy enchanted creature and return marked for death to its owner's hand.                     
Actually, I suppose Black shouldn't get a 2/2 Lifelink wall for B. So maybe takeaway Lifelink or the ability to block; even if it could block when it wasn't a hitman. That same restriction could perhaps tie to all of them, again increasing the parralel with Unleash.
I don't understand the flavor.

I think it's "hitting" your opponent, and then it's "fulfilled its contract". Or something.

I think the other player hires a hitman to kill your creature after they take damage. Or something.

You got it in one! It's not AMAZINGLY flavourful, but hey. What can you do?

Put an Assassin creature onto the battlefield from your hand. That creature fights target tapped creature an opponent controls.    
I dunno mang, what if it was all like, "Any opponent may choose to have this creature enter the battlefield with a Hit Counter all up on it."

And then, things like "As long as this creature has a Hit Counter all up on its grill, it has haste, or flying, or +3/+3, or it is a Legendary Beast of Epic Bloody Proportions."

"all up on it" is not standard wording

 
120.6. Some effects replace card draws.
I didn't even know Ken Kesey played Magic

I like the concept of an alternate cost that allows your creatures to become one shots (like Evoke with attack steps), but you're right that the execution needs to be refined somewhat.

Moriok Rigger is not a Rigger in print. Only in Errata WHAT NOW! (yes, I did put that phrase in for that exact reason)
Congratulations, they have activated your trap card!
Mechanically, this feels more red than black.
Flavorfully, this kind of keeps you stuck in black because other colors almost never get non-gold assassins.
I think I could push the flavour into almost any colour. Mono red/blue assassins are probably doable. After all, it just depends who they're assassinating. Each one could be a member of the assassin group at a different rank- blue watchers, red fighters, and black executors. It's only a little further a push than mono-red Boros members, or mono-red wizards for that matter.
