Cards I would take out: (I wrote this out and lost it so I'll be brief) Chittering Witch, The Elderspell, Hierophant's Chalice, Indestructibility, and Chromatic Lantern. Stuff I would put in for sure: Panharmonicon Stuff to Consider: Baleful Strix Entreat the Dead
I have more recommendations but I have not the time atm

Hey all! I made some edits to the deck recently with some cards from C19 and Eldraine:
I playtested the deck last Friday and Backdraft Hellkite helped me quite a bit. Let me know your thoughts on the new inclusions!

Rock Hydra would be fun in this deck. Rhythm of the Wild might be good in this deck as well. Vastwood Hydra may also be a good addition to this deck. Wildest Dreams is good recursion. Entreat the Dead and Living Death may also help. Explosive Vegetation , Kodama's Reach , Farseek , Peregrination and Untamed Wilds are also good ramp spells.
I hope this helps!

I’d suggest using a Reliquary Tower and not Spellbook , which will also free up a card spot. Entreat the Dead is a decent graveyard-to-battlefield resurrection, and with the lifegain theme in your deck you could probably make use of Bolas's Citadel or the new Ajani, Ajani, Strength of the Pride .
Since you have a lot of black devotion on permanents, Gray Merchant of Asphodel is a pretty good card.
Crypt Ghast is a black mana doubler with Extort.
Maybe you’ve already considered these, but hopefully the suggestions will help

Agreed. After my Animar, Soul of Elements deck fell apart, I wanted to make a counters deck with less bells and whistles. I always find EDH disheartening when the best versions have been calculated and there’s no room to refine. Skullbriar needed a massive facelift imo.
Collector Ouphe definitely warrants his spot. I’ll keep my Sol Ring just cuz. But I might switch the other out for one that can be sac’d in response to him being played(so it doesn’t become useless). Since creatures are much more the focus here, especially with Green Sun's Zenith , I might stick with mana dorks. Crypt Ghast is weird. I feel like I never have enough swamps for him to be effective at 4cmc.
Bow of Nylea : deathtouch wrecks with your setup. With trample it’s stellar, but I’m still torn. A single counter a turn for 2 is garbage, 2 damage is meh, lifegain is a no, I can return and play cards from my grave. But just sitting there it’s not terrible. It’ll probably go out at a later date.

Yo Ruggs, here are a suggested cards to remove from you deck open up space.
Graveyard Fetching/Recursion - Competes for cards slots that support the tribal control theme. Besides Craterhoof Behemoth , I dont see any creature worth two cards for throwing it into your graveyard and then recurring it onto the battlefield. Animate Dead is good because you can target you opponent's graveyards - perfect for your discard theme.
- Buried Alive -> Vanquisher's Banner
- Entomb -> Herald's Horn
- Unearth -> Kindred Summons
- Entreat the Dead -> Rise of the Dark Realms Use elf ramp bring all those discarded creatures back into play under your control.
Other swap options include:
- Deathreap Ritual -> Skullclamp . The ritual conditionally yields one draw/end step. It's not bad, but the clamp will can explosively refill your hand for with more discard shenanigans
- Nature's Claim - > Beast Within . More flexibility on target selection.
- Deathsprout -> Silence the Believers , Vraska's Contempt , or Toxic Deluge . Your deck is missing alternative removal tricks, which I think is important. Indestructible is pretty common.
Thats what I got for now.
