Looks pretty sweet man. I agree with Carmasem about needing to cut a few cards (obviously) and one of them should be Garruk, Primal Hunter. For the cost, he seems like a 'draw a few cards then dies' play since the 3/3 Beast isn't worth it. Also maybe cut Brawn as it needs to die to be relevant and most your creatures have trample already. Additionally Kalonian Hydra feels too slow, especially without trample. Same goes for Gaea's Revenge... the haste isn't really relevant thanks to your commander and without trample it's only helpful against an open enemy. Lastly, unless I missed the point, Strionic Resonator didn't seem to have enough viable uses to warrant a card slot. Those are my votes to cut down to the golden hundo.

Archetype of Endurance for more protection.
Second Harvest for more tokens.

I made a similar deck too with black. I tried to use the least amount of non-creautre cards in it. Dryad Arbor is great if you mill yourself because it will count as a creature in the yard too. Grisly Salvage was awesome as well. With Splinterfright, Boneyard Wurm and Liliana's Elite it becomes a giant growth combat trick (my deck only had around 22 non creature cards).
Your mono green deck is pretty cool as well. If you ever want a new version, try to look into black or blue.
I do like your inclusion of Splendid Reclamation in the Deck. Great idea to use the lands that end up in your graveyard. But I would try to find a creature that does something similar. Maybe Life from the Loam could be interesting for its dredge ability. Ramunap Excavator could be good as well as it counts as a creature if it ends up in the yard.
For trample I had Brawn.
As my finisher I used Kessig Cagebreakers. If it could survive one turn the enemy was dead.I have a long list of cards in my maybeboard in my deck that you might want to check out.
In my playgroup we usually play multiplayer and don't bother with sideboards but Witchbane Orb was good for some graveyard hate, as it makes target player exiles his or her graveyard impossible. But unfortunately it is not a creature. Sylvok Replica and Ainok Survivalist deal with artifacts that hate on your yard that can be responded to. Well enjoy your deck, I had a blast playing with the Splinterfright idea, so I think you will too!

Woops, sorry, Brawn isn't Modern legal (didn't realize, I mostly play Legacy) but you should use cards that have an effect when they are in your graveyard.

You could probably make great use of Grisly Salvage because it digs for creatures and lands while it increases the number of cards in your graveyard.

Love a good Omnath deck! Check out mine: Omnath, Locus of Creature Ramp
Since you are going to have big creatures with counters on them, I would try to throw in a Brawn as it is invaluable once it is killed. Another card I like for counter decks is Predator Ooze since it gets counters when it attacks and has indestructible. It also combos well with Sword of the Animist and Bow of Nylea

Hi Guint!! Here are some suggestions I think you could utilize for Ishkanah. So far it looks good!
The things we want to make sure you have in this deck are ways to activate delirium, as well as ways to activate Ish's tribal effects. Let's start with the spiders themselves~
If you can find it I definitely recommend buying a Swarmyard cause what's better than a land that prevents your dudes from dying?
Arachnogenesis Essentially a Fog with an added bonus of giving you a TON of spider tokens. Spider Spawning is also going to be a winner in this deck. Penumbra Spider gives you good value by making another token when it dies. Riptide Replicator is a fun artifact that can make spiders as well... and with all the tokens, a Parallel Lives and Second Harvest would definitely be cards to consider. Also a fan of the underused Parallel Evolution - it even has Flashback! Swarm them with tokens and then drop a Pathbreaker Ibex, Decimator of the Provinces or the ever coveted Craterhoof Behemoth... or you can go the route of Overwhelming Stampede.
Silklash Spider would be a good powerhouse to pick up. It's effect can kill off any flier on the board.
There aren't any other specific "spiders" that are noteworthy, but there are always shapeshifters. My favorite "spiders" are Metallic Mimic and Chameleon Colossus Alternatively you can get a Conspiracy and just make your whole deck into spiders. Then when they all die bring them back with Patriarch's Bidding.
Spiders have especially large butts on them, so Assault Formation can really be powerful. Things that benefit from the high toughness of spiders should also be up for consideration. Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper, Abzan Beastmaster, Grim Contest, and Kin-Tree Invocation are ones that come to mind immediately.
For a more tribal feel I def recommend trying out Archetype of Endurance and Archetype of Finality as well as Brawn and Filth. Bow of Nylea could be used as an alternative to Archetype of Finality if you so choose. There are also tribal artifacts such as Coat of Arms, Urza's Incubator, Obelisk of Urd and Door of Destinies.
Now onto the Delirium Mechanic. Making sure your own cards into the graveyard can seem counterproductive but a lot of things benefit from it. So first, how do we self mill?
- Deadbridge Chant is a personal favorite. Satyr Wayfinder, Crop Sigil, Grisly Salvage, Mulch, Grapple with the Past, Commune with the Gods, Benefaction of Rhonas, Sudden Reclamation. Stinkweed Imp or anything with Dredge. Golgari Grave-Troll is a popular one.
Now for some super fun cards that benefit from a graveyard presence.
- Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord, Lord of Extinction, Deathcap Cultivator, Deathrite Shaman, Traverse the Ulvenwald, Splendid Reclamation, and Meren of Clan Nel Toth. Did you mill a bunch of great cards you want back? Recursion is also a super powerful strategy. Eternal Witness is a Green staple for a reason. Greenwarden of Murasa, Seasons Past, Treasured Find, Animate Dead, Victimize. Sometimes you want to put specific things into the graveyard to fetch with recursion cards, so Entomb, Jarad's Orders, and Buried Alive become like tutors in a sense.
Now lets talk about Black and Green as colors in EDH. Black/Green has a few things that it needs to run undoubtedly. One of its major problems is card draw, so you're definitely going to want to auto-include Harmonize and Phyrexian Arena. I would also consider Lifecrafter's Bestiary.
Removal: Putrefy, Murder, Hero's Downfall, Abrupt Decay, Krosan Grip, Golgari Charm, Toxic Deluge, In Garruk's Wake, Acidic Slime, Beast Within. Dictate of Erebos to be used in conjunction with a sacrifice outlet like Ashnod's Altar (sac your extra tokens for mana!)
Ramp: Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, Solemn Simulacrum, Sol Ring, Explosive Vegetation, Thran Dynamo, Commander's Sphere, Golgari Signet, Cryptolith Rite, Harrow, Crop Rotation, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Yavimaya Elder.
The only other thing I want to say about your deck is that you should probably up your land count to at least 36. 30 is usually too little for most EDH decks in my experience. Unless you're going super aggro, you'll find yourself short on a lot of land drops.
If you wanted to upgrade your lands, here are some relatively inexpensive things you could add:
Golgari Rot Farm, Command Tower, Jungle Hollow, Temple of Malady, Woodland Cemetery, Overgrown Tomb, Llanowar Wastes, Tainted Wood, Grim Backwoods, Bojuka Bog, Hissing Quagmire, Temple of the False God, Drownyard Temple, Ghost Quarter, and any lands that Cycle in your colors :)
