I disapprove of Constricting Tendrils , Dazzling Lights , and other -X/-0 spells: These are basically Healing Salve , and I think they can be replaced with no loss.

I don't recommend splitting your win condition on infect, but I'd like to point out that Blighted Agent + Unstable Mutation = win over 4 turns, because 4+3+2+1 = 10

I am really fond of this original take on Living End. Great job! Smart use of Gnaw to the Bone too!

I was thinking that if you were willing to splash white instead of black, you could replace some of your cards as following: Fatal Push--> Path to Exile ; Drake Haven (In my playtests, i never used it. I would rather pay an extra cycling cost to dig for As Foretold as fast as i can) --> Wall of Omens or Angelsong (i suppose the idea behind the drakes is to chump block, so these 2 cards accomplish the objective of stalling and drawing) and maybe add Idyllic Tutor to tutor for As Foretold

Other cards that come to mind (but haven't analyzed seriously): Constricting Tendrils, Delay, Wheel of Fate, Remand (these 2 give you more card draw :) ) and Restore Balance.
