You don't need Rancor. You've got Splinterfright.
Keep it simple. Get cards in the grave. Play cheap big creatures that put Tarmogoyf to shame. Use your creatures to take care of whatever problems you have.
Artisan Fiend, Spinterfright and Nighthowler can all be snatched by Unearth. So...
If you want to use Claim for redundancy, +4 Tarmogoyf or the +4 Boneyard Wurm. Myself, I like a little p/t in case they Relic or RIP. Keep it around til you get your answer. Maybe Grim Flayer? But if you play more 1-2cc ETB's, I could see more Claim. Try a 1 of Call of the Death-Dweller.
What are your problems? Creatures. Artifacts. Enchantments.
1 Plague Engineer
1 Reclamation Sage
1 Haakon, Stromgald Scourge, Nameless Inversion
Costs three but he's got a 3/4 body so why not?
4 Force of Negation out of the side. You may want to board in 4 Force of Negation for RIP. I don't know how else you're going to beat it without a counterspell with Flashback. Play some number of Life from the Loam with Raven's Crime.
I don't know. Keep it together. Streamline the idea because the deck you'll be playing against, people have refined it to hell the past few years.

Grim Flayer is a card that works well with Tarmogoyf and can get some extra value with Bloodsoaked Champion and Claim. If you do add it though, maybe add some more fetchlands to better add a land to your graveyard, as well as consider something like Scrapheap Scrounger to be an aggressive artifact creature for delirium. I've always had a soft spot for Grim Flayer, so it's probably not that great, but could still be worth trying.

RunningPigeon - Thanks for the thoughts, I'm not sure why the two shock lands I had originally in the deck were not still in the list (and oddly enough, I only had 58 cards in the deck) but they are back in now. I like Claim, not sure why I never thought of it. I used to run Faithless Looting but sadly, I can no longer take advantage of it.

I prefer Postmortem Lunge over Claim , the haste it grants can let you reanimate a devoted druid and go off immediately, and you can still use it to bring back a vizier or a piece of your secondary combo that isn't specifically two mana.

I'd drop eternal witness, and duskwatch recruiter, the ooze and tireless tracker, in favor of Claim and maybe Murderous Redcap . but thats me. i personally feel the secondary win con with 3 pieces and the recover from graveyard to battle field of critical, 2 mana components, for less mana than the wintness is the better option to those guys

Melira, Sylvok Outcast also combos for "unlimited life'' with Phyrexian Unlife and helps with cards such as infinite Murderous Redcap for a win con if you are already running Viscera Seer but you do have Vizier of Remedies so its just as good. you also have a lot of 2 mana cards so maybe Claim if you have to deal with red/black removal decks to get a critical piece back on the field.

I just realized that claim//fame only brings back cmc2 or lower, so it wouldn't have worked anyway :(
