You may pay 1 life and remove a black card in your hand from the game rather than pay Contagion's mana cost.
Distribute two -2/-1 counters among one or two target creatures.

A few suggestions you may find useful:
Executioner's Capsule seems unassuming but I've had VERY good experiences with it in past games.
Trading Post does everything we want. Provides bodies, draws cards, recurs artifacts. Great for keeping the stax engine going.
Inventors' Fair is very easy to turn on for the lifegain since we play so many artifacts and can tutor any of our stax goodies.
Guardian Beast might be of interest to you to protect your important artifacts from pesky spells.
You're welcome to take a look at my list if you need more ideas. Mine is less creature focused than yours but we have pretty similar game plans. Only Perfection is Acceptable
Good to see another Glissa player!

A permanent cannot have both -1/-1 and +1/+1 counters on it at the same time. Opposite counters cancel each other.
Note that very old cards like Contagion can give other type of counters and those will not cancel out, but that is a fringe case.

Spore Frog is one of the best creatures in any Meren deck. I may have searched for it more than any other creature in my deck. You also may want to run more sac outlets like Altar of Dementia and Ashnod's Altar that both are not just great for the deck in general, but also have many infinite combos with Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, Woodfall Primus, and tons of other cards for fun wins.
If you're going to play cards like Infernal Darkness or Contagion, you really want to have mana dorks that produce green mana, so that you don't choke yourself on mana as well. Birds of Paradise, Llanowar Elves, Elvish Mystic, and Wall of Roots are great for this.
You may also want to switch out liliana of the dark realms for Liliana Vess, as you are considerably low on tutors.
Here's a link to my deck. Its by no means budget, but it shares a lot of cards in common, and has some synergies you might be interested in.

We could cut the trade down so you're not trading for stuff you already have. I figured on swapping out the Solemn Simulacrum and Needle Spires for the Chain Lightning and Invigorates to start with. I'll work out a new trade removing the Prized Amalgam on my end and adding the imps and Contagion and see what it looks like.

Brought in Profane Command for flexibility, with the ability to target multiple creatures with Horobi, or go direct for an opponent's life. All Is Dust for removing problem permanents. Endbringer as another colourless creature, blocker and creature with Horobi synergy. Sadistic Sacrament as anti-combo tech, Infernal Darkness as additional soft lock, and Demon of Dark Schemes as an alternative to Reiver Demon.
Dropped Mutilate but kept Toxic Deluge. Dropped Reiver Demon (high casting cost and doesn't hit black or artifact creatures). Dropped Contagion as we have enough removal options. Also dropped Mogis's Marauder as it's cute but felt like the least crucial of our creatures.

Consumptive Goo does seem to have a hefty activation cost if you're looking to kill more than one a round with it. (and I have my doubts it would live any longer than that)
I've had a pretty good record with Nefashu in the past, without Horobi. His effect seems pretty token-hate to begin with, but it's really versatile and can handle a lot of annoying utility creatures. (here's looking at you, Elves)
Honestly I don't know how I forgot Contagion. Such a wonderful card.
Shambling Swarm seems like a pretty useful creature. I've never run it before but, even without Horobi online, three -1/-1 counters distributed? That sounds pretty strong. I mean obviously a 3/3 for 4 isn't exactly the deal of the century, but with the success I've seen from cards like Festering Goblin, it's hard not to see potential there.
