Thanks for the suggestions lukas96! I am always happy to have suggestions!
Like you said, I know the manabase will never be perfect, but it hasn't screwed me over yet! The only issues I've ever had with it were getting white mana early enough that I have it when I need it, but also make sure that it's not the only color in my hand. For that reason, I'm not really worried about having Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth. That being said, Shambling Vent is a great idea! I don't want it until the late game, of course, but it can crew vehicles, dodge removal fairly easily, and gain me a little life if need be. All of that's useful!
As for Concealed Courtyard, I'm trying to weigh its consistency on turns 1-3 and the guaranteed slowdown later vs. Isolated Chapel's higher risk earlier in the game and it's faster speed on later turns. If Godless Shrine wasn't considered a Swamp and Plains, too, I would definitely go with Concealed Courtyard, but right now I'm not so sure. This deck may have a super low curve, but it actually benefits greatly from being able to leave mana open so you can attack without abandon with Bloodsoaked Champion or threaten with Vault of the Archangel if they have a few big creatures.
Authority of the Consuls is less in here for haste and more for the lifegain potential for one mana. Merfolk was the one I had in mind the most, to help give me a boost so I can race more effectively.
I think I'll thrown in a Eidolon of Rhetoric. I'm a little wary of it because it prevents me from emptying my own hand, but it's definitely better than a dead Kambal in my hand.
Finally, it's funny that you bring up Relic of Progenitus's ability. Me and my friend were just talking yesterday about how there might be a better fit. We had settled on Tormod's Crypt and while I'm always for free spells, Nihil Spellbomb's draw ability sounds more useful.

You definitely need removal and some more card advantage in this deck. I would recommend a couple Path to Exiles and Fatal Pushes. Thraben Inspector is just a great 1-drop, Fiend Hunter perma-exiles with your blink effects, Pain Seer and Glint-Sleeve Siphoner are 'great' budget alternatives to Dark Confidant. Kitesail Freebooter has been an all-star in human decks. I wouldn't advise against something like Arguel's Blood Fast Flip or Phyrexian Arena for card advantage as well. Anthems like Always Watching or Radiant Destiny are always good.
For your sideboard, Rest in Peace and Stony Silence. Collective Brutality is fantastic against control with its discard effect, and is one of the best hosers against burn and aggro. Cards like Fragmentize are always a safe choice. Arashin Cleric is a favorite of mine for faster match ups. Liliana's Defeat and Gideon's Defeat are great against those colors. Duress is also great against control and combo decks. You may need something like Eerie Interlude to protect yourself against wraths.

This is a spicy meatball. what do you think about Bloodsoaked Champion? It might be more reliable than gravecrawler to get back from the 'yard, even if it costs more. Also, Risen Executioner seems really mana intensive for this deck.

In that case, don't change anything except the Tasigur, the Golden Fangs. The point of Bloodghast is that you can sacrifice it multiple times in a turn and keep bringing it back. Bloodsoaked Champion doesn't really fit that plan because you have to attack first.
Winding Constrictor, Hardened Scales, Simic Guildmage, Kitchen Finks, and Avatar of the Resolute are some other options in place of Tasigur, the Golden Fang. Evolutionary Leap may also be a nice sac outlet, especially with undying.

Unfortunately, those are all the fetch lands that I have, I'm on a budget. Don't have any Bloodghasts but I do have Bloodsoaked Champions, though I don't think they have a place in this deck unless I cut Experiment One, but we want that to get bigger.
Tasigur, the Golden Fang isn't necessary for this deck anyway, I just thought he would be pretty easy to get out with the sacrifices and fetches that I do have, but again, isn't necessary. I could cut him for other cards to keep the deck consistent.

Thanks for the suggestion square711. As of now the deck is a human tribal, and the point of having Wolfbitten Captive Flip is for a turn 1 play and to be used as fodder. Mayor of Avabruck Flip is used to pump my humans, with both not necessarily used for their wolf flip sides. I can definitely see where youre coming from, and I do have a play set of Bloodsoaked Champions to replace the Captives..I also have Young Wolfs so I'll tinker around with those. I do need to pickup Viscera Seers and Cartel Aristocrats, those would definitely speed things up! Also, instead of Raise the Alarm, what do you think of Gather the Townsfolk?
