Above are a bunch of cards that want you to have lands in grave and on the field. Below are cards that are wide removal.

Playtesting is going well. I am finding Centaur Vinecrasher very underwhelming and will probably trade that out for Lord of Extinction or Rogue's Passage. I am also thinking of adding in Diabolic Intent but not really sure what to cut for it at this time. My biggest concern with my meta is a friend who plays a semi-competitive Yisan Chord deck. He often has Yisan out on turn 2, turn 3 tutors Sylvan Safekeeper and turn 4 tutors Scavenging Ooze which is a tough counter for me. I often have to decide whether I am going to race him or hold back and try for a wipe if no targeted removal is in my hand.
Ahmonket was kind of blah as far as the Gitrog is concerned, though I am interested in seeing how Shadow of the Grave may interact with this deck. I am also praying that Hour of Devastation will include a B/G land with Cycle in it. That would be amazing.
Mind linking your deck?

Fun deck, Centaur Vinecrasher is amazing in there. I was wondering, why the Alhammerret's Archive?

My bad, I didn't see Splendid Reclamation in your list. In regards to Crop Rotation, while it's true you don't have a specific land to search for, it still helps out Centaur Vinecrasher and Terravore (if you run it). It will also trigger Omnath, Locus of Rage and Rampaging Baloths at instant speed which can't be overlooked. Also, Growth Spasm might be an option. It only finds one land, but the eldrazi scion can block and act as a pseudo-land.

Like I haven't built the deck and played it yet because I am just wanting a tad more feedback on what I should potentially add or take out before I truly build it to make it as good as I possibly can however Jolrael, Empress of Beasts turns lands into creatures so my main path is to ramp like a madman (hence the above average land count for the deck), I turns all my lands (or opponents) into 3/3 creatures so not only can I get mana quick but also creatures. The problem comes in with the discard 2 cards to do it however with enough draw and things like Crucible of Worlds, Groundskeeper, and Splendid Reclamation I can just ditch lands which aren't exactly a major loss of resources for this deck (I honestly could put Centaur Vinecrasher since he's pure jank with that strategy). Also because I have a lot of lands I can go another route with doubling, tripling, or quadrupling as well as untapping and retapping my mana and using Omnath, Locus of Mana and/or Helix Pinnacle as alt-wincons.
Other fun jank is leaving mana open to hose the boardwipes or even to Powder Keg someone's lands with Jolrael, Empress of Beasts or to a small extent Kamahl, Fist of Krosa which I can use things like Eternal Witness and Nissa, Vital Force to return it back.

Since you're running Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord as a backup wincon, have you considered adding + ? All you'd need is the druid and Quillspike in your GY with Necrotic Ooze or if the GY hate is too strong via Leyline of the Void/Planar Void/Rest in Peace just those two on the field could work where Centaur Vinecrasher cannot.

Since Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord has that sweet reanimate ability by sacrificing a Forest and a Swamp, you could add some cards that abuse lands in your graveyard.
Centaur Vinecrasher is another really great card. He's proved to be explosive for me on turn 4-6.
I can't recommend Worm Harvest enough. You can cast it infinitely from your graveyard as long as you have a land to dump, and it gives you lots of tokens for sacrificing.
You can also check out my list (Meren's Grave Shenanigans) for any suggestions. I have a few cards to acquire yet, but I'm happy with its performance.
