Ahzrei I really like the theme of the deck you have here, but right now I see a few issues.
First of all, you have 62 cards in the deck right now.. Assuming you want to be running a 60 card deck, that should be fixed.
Arc Runner is a nice card, but think of this.. If your plan is to hard cast him, and then play Rite of Consumption before end of turn.. this is a combo that'll have to wait until turn 5 at the soonest. Not to mention that he is easily chump blocked once your opponent has the slightest idea of what you're up to (since he doesn't even have trample).
Here is what I would do:
-4 Arc Runner (Too mana intensive to allow for shenanigans)
-4 Demigod of Revenge (Not sure he fits the theme like you may think. Official ruling of the card states: "This ability triggers when you cast Demigod of Revenge as a spell. It wont trigger if Demigod of Revenge is put directly onto the battlefield.")
+4 Demonlord of Ashmouth (This is your win con. He also allows you to sac him once at no cost = profit.)
-4 Apprentice Necromancer (Soonest he is useful is turn 3, after some thought on this one, I am thinking this:)
+4 Undying Evil (...fits the theme a little better than the Necro, & useful in more situations.)
-2 Sneak Attack (With the new lowered mana curve here, I don't see as much need for this card in the deck.)
(You should also look at fixing your mana base. Even without making changes to the deck, you should be more swamp-heavy than mountain-heavy.)

I usually run White in decks like these, but the two changes I can recommend immediately are -1 Swamp for +1 Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and -1 Demonlord of Ashmouth for +1 Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet. Urborg is just a quality-of-life upgrade and Kalitas acts as a lesser version of Leyline of the Void with Lifelink. And while I see the fun in using Cytoplast Root-Kin , I would replace it with something more like Ridgescale Tusker to guarantee that all of my creatures got a counter as soon as possible. Maybe even -1 Gift of the Deity for +1 Retribution of the Ancients as a form of Removal against cards that might have Indestructible.
If I think of anything else, I'll let you know!

Awesome deck Creaturesofthewind. I was looking through my cards yesterday and found four Ravenous Demon Flip that I want to start a deck with. Gather the Townsfolk is a card that I will definitely need to buy. Loyal Cathar Flip is an interesting card. Helps as a human for Ravenous Demon Flip and is harder to kill since it transforms. Demonlord of Ashmouth doesn't look like it fits with your deck. I would rather just load up on low cost humans. Your deck has motivated me to work on my own deck idea. Thanks for the jump start!

Some of these aren't super serious suggestions, but I think adding a few more Nicol Bolas cards from HOU would be cool. Also some of them may alternatively be good cards for your other deck.

I also realized that, counterintuitively, Undying creatures are effectively immortal if you can saddle them with -1/-1 counters reliably. The counters cancel, so it will come back indefinitely. I added Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, Flayer of the Hatebound, Pyreheart Wolf, Demonlord of Ashmouth, Hound of Griselbrand, and Geralf's Messenger to the list!

Look into Plague Belcher instead of Demonlord of Ashmouth. I've messed around with both. Menace is usually pretty similar to flying in that it is hard to block and the fact that Belcher can reset your Geralf's Messenger is a pretty relevant ability (also you can sack the messenger for even more damage). Looking good overall though!

As for cuts, these I think are the weakest cards in the deck:
I think you can do without Terrarion, Grisly Spectacle(i'd replace this with a more efficient kill spell if you have one), Monomania, Brink of Disaster, Demonic Taskmaster, Demonlord of Ashmouth, Knight of Infamy
As for additions:
Sol Ring: assuming you can get your hands on it, every deck should run one.
Dark Ritual:powers out your commander
Rise of the Dark Realms/Dread Return/Victimize/Beacon of Unrest/Reanimate/Ever After/Living Death/Reanimate/Animate Dead/: more ways to bring back creatures from the graveyard. Don't get me wrong sheoldred is great but costs 7 mana and if he dies you have to spend 9 mana. It's good to have other ways to reanimate even without him. You don't necessarily need to include all of these but i'd pick a lot of them and similar effects
