Incorrigible Youths is pretty weak, and Insult/Injury seems pretty out of place. Vraska's Contempt is pretty expensive at 4 mana too. Gisa's Bidding, Bloodghast, and Big Game Hunter are all possible options for the creature slot. Hero's Downfall is probably a better option than Vraska's Contempt for dealing with creatures and planeswalkers. Honestly though I don't think a deck this fast should be too scared of planeswalkers in the first place - I'd consider Lightning Axe instead of any black destruction spell. Cathartic Reunion or Thrill of Possibility could provide you with some much needed card advantage. You could definitely use Blood Crypts since you have 8 one mana spells - don't want to be caught with only taplands that won't let you cast them! And I assume the 6 Hanweird Battlements is a typo?
Whatever you decide to do, good luck and have fun!

Waste Not can make a ton of blockers, plus you'll probably have tutored for Waste Not in the earlier turns, which means by the time you curve into angrath, you will most likely have 3-4 zombies. Either way, this is the ideal situation, so angrath is still very debatable.
If I was to put Angrath, the Flame-Chained , I would consider cutting Last One Standing . Reason i say this is that unless you can get an early Waste Not , your board will be fairly small,a nd you'll most likely only have Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger out, making that 8/8 Uril, the Miststalker even more liley to stick around while you cry in a corner.
Alright; thanks for reading =)

This is what I think that you can do:
For Big Game Hunter you can cut Terminate . The reason to do this is that you can rehuse the Hunter with Chainer, and Terminate is only an instant. And don't cut Bedevil or Chaos Warp because them can also kill other type of permanents.
I hope this helped you.

TheSimikBOat, you know what? I actually ran Sepulchral Primordial in here at one point. I've been wanting to fit it back in. Any suggestions as for cuts? and believe me, Big Game Hunter and Grave Scrabbler are in the box with my deck (seperate of course, behind my tokens)because I've been trying to fit them in. Cuts are the hard part for me though, so, if you have suggestions for cuts I would appreciate any advice given. Thanks!

Big Game Hunter can be good removal thanks to the Chainer's discard. I saw that you run some reanimator spells, and one of my favorite creatures to reanimate in edh is Sepulchral Primordial . And you can also add Grave Scrabbler because you discard it for Chainer, and also you get another creature to your hand.

I gave the 4 mechanics a good look in Scryfall and I don't know how to feel, really. On the one hand the mechanics seem cool and especially if they open up more options in other colors for them it would be amazing (like Naya populate). 2 main worry points is that madness does not strike me as a multiplayer mechanic and mostly the reprint value worried me tremendously. Populate's highest value card as is Trostani, Selesnya's Voice sitting at around 2$, morph's top card is Riptide Entrancer at 4$, madness with Big Game Hunter at 1.5$ and flashback with Past in Flames at 5$(Im not counting Echo of Eons as it is a new card and won't be reprinted here). On top of that certain cards like Dream Chisel and Catalyst Stone have already spiked significantly and if they are not reprinted we will see another Enchanted Evening type spike. All in all this puts the reprint value either at 2018 levels or in cards that don't synergise directly with the mechanic.
I know the reprints and value aren't everything but if the bet it all on the new cards hype and snub reprinting needed cards, I'll pass.
