Maybe you could throw a couple Star of Extinction in the sideboard to deal with Carnage Tyrant, it is definitely something to have an answer for. Other than that it looks like a super solid control build.

@TheSilverZephyr Thanks for your feedback! Sideboarding is tough, there are a lot of good cards; and unfortunately I'm not currently able to play this deck competitively so my input here is unsubstantiated- but I'll take a crack at it.

I'm not a big fan of Ghalta, Primal Hunger. If you can play him cheap, you already have 10 power on the board so what more is he going to do for you. If you can't play him cheap, he's a dead card in your hand. I would replace him with Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma. Gorclaw will make your Carnage Tyrant, Ripjaw Raptor and Vine Mare all cheaper and give them trample to help you finish.

Alright -Arcanity-, here's the deal: Unmoored Ego is in the sideboard to deal with A)big annoying combos that I don't want to have to deal with or B)shenanigans that can't be countered and/or can't be nuked, see Carnage Tyrant. It is there to deal with things that can cause me problems, however, since not all decks cause me problems and I'm able to run them over before they're really going it's not in the mainboard. It is there as a roadblock to whatever their primary plan is and force them to shift plans, while mine goes on, relatively undisrupted because by the time I have to cast Unmoored Ego, I'm already rolling and I'm keeping them from disrupting my game plan. Alternatively, as I've said both here in the comments and in the description, I can tear lands out of a mana-intensive deck, which gives me an advantage.
This deck is by no means meant as a Tier 1 Standard deck, I have neither the money nor the patience for that. It is meant as a fun deck that abuses a mechanic to the nth degree and still wins games. You're entitled to your opinion about it, but at the end of the day it's just your opinion. But what do I know, I've only been in since Odyssey.
Archiving prior comments.

-Arcanity-: my argument is not failing in the slightest. i clearly do know what "0 for 1 means". Unmoored Ego is NOT always a 0 for 1, because there is a very real possibility it gets cards out of your opponents hand. thats just a simple fact. therefore, i was entirely 100,0000% correct when i said you were wrong. because you were. saying "unmoored ego is always a 0 for 1" is just blatantly false. you have provided zero evidence whatsoever that Unmoored Ego is not good in standard. it will be, plain and simple. saying "you're still wrong" is 100% valid. if YOU aren't smart enough to make the card work, then thats on you. if you really think Unmoored Ego isn't good simply for no other reason than because a single copy of it won't remove 100% of a decks win-cons in every single match up, then you're playin the entire game very wrong. if i'm playin green stompy and name Steel Leaf Champion, thats 4 less big beaters to worry about, leaving Cast Down open to destroy OTHER creatures. or you name the hexproof beaters that Cast Down can't kill. name Nullhide Ferox or Carnage Tyrant. learn how to play BUx control kiddo.

This topped the SCG event I referenced and has ways to sure up the matchups I pointed out and has a slightly more focused top end. I'm not expecting Carnage Tyrant to be necessary for a while until control players figure out their builds a bit more, so going all in on that can be detrimental if they just have a faster clock and get under it.

Path of Mettle Flip will only kill Sparring Construct, and that may not be a bad thing. Still, Tajic, Legion's Edge can protect it. I'll add that Metzali, Tower of Triumph can kill a single attacking Vine Mare or Carnage Tyrant. You would have to adjust your creature base accordingly to make it work, however.
