Interesting decklist. I have a few questions though.The mana base seems strange to me. Running things like Polluted Delta and Steam Vents with no Architects of Will in the list. Would you not rather have more Blood Crypts? I have also not seen this many check lands being played in LE, seems okay if you're not on the fastland plan. I also noticed that you're not running any Faerie Macabre mainboard which may or may not be a meta choice, I personally like the macabre's because they make LE's better and can be disc'd for Horror's and Archfiend's. You're also running 1 of Archfiend of Ifnir which I think is better as a 2 of, thoughts?

Liliana of the Veil is still the best planeswalker to pair with Tarmogoyf, by a lot. Either way, whether you stick with Last Hope or not, you should have 3 or 4 planeswalkers in a goyf deck.
Consider Inquisition of Kozilek and/or upping your Thoughtseize count. While they don't 2-for-1 your Delirium count, they do work overtime for Goyf. The earlier suggestion of Architects of Will was appropriate; 1 mana, instant, draw a card, put two card types in yard. Late game hard cast not terrible for the attrition war.
Baubles are obviously good for getting delirium super early, but consider some spellbombs. Flight Spellbomb is super janky but gets Goyf and friends over blockers. Lastly I suggest Nameless Inversion as a 1 or 2-of for getting that last card type in yard and dealing with most creatures in the format, or buffing your beater to silly levels.

I'll do some playtesting for you, try out some different builds in terms of what sort of creatures it plays. On the list so far I have:
- Scavenging Ooze
- Grim Flayer
- Dark Confidant
- Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet
- Jace, Vryn's Prodigy Flip
- Anything else I can think of or discover in the process
- Traverse the Ulvenwald
- Maelstrom Pulse (Considering moving to sideboard)
- Mishra's Bauble/Architects of Will - I'll test and see which performs better in this type of deck. I would think that the Architects would, but Mishra's still has a chance. Also, the price difference is quite nice :)
I'll be back with information in a few days - a week.

I did some play testing today and yesterday, and I did like a lot of the suggestions that you guys came up with, and made some changes.
APPLE01DOJ I removed those Thought Scour and Jace, Vryn's Prodigy Flip. I still stand by some points I made, but I was able to find better threats than Jace, and thus didn't really need the pitch from Thought Scour.
Jhed1 - I removed Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet as the felt slow and I wasn't getting THAT much value out of it. I also moved Collective Brutality to the main to help with discard with removing one Liliana of the Veil. I don't know if I made the right decision with quatity and completly replacing Thoughtseize, so some feedback on that would be great!
Xanimus well then, you may have just saved me a good chunk of money of getting Baubles. Architects of Will is a spectacular substitute in this deck. I also do like the addition of Grim Flayer, but I think I like my Snapcaster Mage count where it is.
All in all, I think the changes are sound. I am still playtesting the other ideas out, but please let me know what you think of the changes!

Just a thought, Grim Flayer? Seems good in a deck like this. Personally, I would either go for the playset of Mishra's Bauble or none at all, simply for consistency reasons (Just my opinion). There's also a neat little card called Architects of Will.. Mainly gonna be used for cycling in a deck like this, but it gets both Artifact and Creature type into grave.Also, I would consider dropping a Liliana of the Veil for a single Liliana, the Last Hope. Her +1 kills/shuts down a large number of creatures in the format, as well as allowing you to win Tarmogoyf wars.
Anyways, these suggestions are more for a graveyard based build, but this already looks great as is :)

Architects of Will seems pretty bad here. A 3/3 for 4 is not what your looking for, and if it's for the cycling, Serum Visions (which i would recommend, since your not running that many lands, and is nice with Snapcaster Mage) is way better. Noble Hierarch also seems bad, since your playing a midrange deck, and dosen't really have a lot of things on 3 and 4 your looking to curve into.
If your looking for more ideas, i've played my fair and share of Sultai, and my list is here:
