Hmmmm ... perhaps you could lean a little more on green and use Drover of the Mighty / Channeler Initiate / Paradise Druid and/or Song of Freyalise / Cryptolith Rite to go with Sylvan Caryatid for mana fixing/ramp. If you're not playing against Slivers, Manaweft Sliver also works like another mana dork. As for reaching devotion, have you considered some of the new multicolored nights from standard? Knights such as: Oakhame Ranger , Fireborn Knight , or Truefire Captain . Considering your commander I think Hero of Precinct One would net a lot of value here. Hope this helps.

Channeler Initiate seems right for this deck.

Dusk Urchins is kinda the reverse, but could also be pretty fun?

So after sharing ideas and looking at the direction you were headed with your list i made one of my own. Calling it Retribution Rock. So subtle differences from yours and reasons. Dryad Arbor over a Pendelhaven . i like the idea of fetching a creature to sacrifice. Other lands that peak my interest for this deck Mutavault Bojuka Bog Llanowar Reborn So a huge reason i ran Aether Vial was because of how difficult it can be casting double and triple colors. Many opponents will board in Blood Moon against me even when i was running 4 Channeler Initiate and 4 vials, and surprisingly it always tempo'd me or sometimes shut me down. So Sylvan Caryatid helps reach that triple black, since casting Geralf's Messenger is priority in this build, having a hexproof manadork helps ensure one hits the board. Also the big butt on Caryatid triggers evolve, and can absorb 2 -1/-1 counters from Plague Belcher in a pinch. Speaking of, that extra damage from a zombie dying from the Belcher can really mean the difference, hence i strongly believe in running a playset. I really look forward to my Tuesday night modern. I really look forward to pilot the deck and have creative lines of attacking and interacting with Retribution. Will report back with how it fares.

There was a line using the following: Hermit Druid , Deathrite Shaman , and Mogis's Marauder , giving the other two haste, tapping them to activate Druid, running no basics so you flip your deck into the graveyard, sacrificing all of them to flashback Dread Return to reanimate Necrotic Ooze .

Then you use Wall of Roots ' ability on Ooze, Blighted Bat to give it haste, then activate Devoted Druid 's and Channeler Initiate 's abilities over and over for infinite mana, use Walking Ballista from the graveyard infinitely and win.

I think Mogg Fanatic is better than Cultist because you can cast Fanatic and use it to shoot down a hatebear or mana dork like birds. Also, you call this deck "Budget", but you play Mana Crypt and not Nature's Will , which comboes with Najeela and also taps down opponent's lands. In addition, I think the ideal ooze combo is Devoted Druid , Channeler Initiate , Blighted Bat or the new one with the infinitely better creature type, and Walking Ballista because it plays less cards that are bad on their own (just blighted bat compared to kiki-jiki, cultist, and anger).
