My RG Shaman build: Deck-large:17-10-16-shamans I'm kinda doing a budget build but I'm not as budget as you are, since I decided to invest in it a bit (Hence the Collected Company and Manamorphose, I had the Atarka's Commands from it's Standard season).
I hope you can get some ideas from my build. I personally found Wolf-Skull Shaman to be too slow, but that's just me and Flamekin Harbinger is much worse than Fauna Shaman, because Harbinger only puts cards on the top of your deck while Fauna puts the card in your hand. But it is pretty expensive which is why I'm not running it.

beyonddevnull: Thank you :-). The only problem with reservoir and tendrils is that they aren't creatures. So they would cost 4 mana after the combo is assembled. I think the deck would be fine without original duals as you can replace them with lands like Tarnished Citadel and Blooming Marsh. While not ideal you could replace grim tutor with Dimir Machinations and imperial seal with Fauna Shaman. Shaman is actually fairly decent, if slow, because it grabs both half of the combo and serves as Food Chain fodder. You could replace timetwister with Whispering Madness. These changes would make the deck a little less consistent and slower at times, but unless you are playing in a tier 1 environment the deck will still be plenty fast. I would probably play spell pierce over counterspell as it is easier to cast. The only reason mana drain is good is that it sets up my combo turn.

You and I think a lot alike, Nighthowler is already in the build, I like to fetch for it late game using Fauna Shaman to pull finishers. I used to run Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord in the sideboard as an alternate win condition against lock down and control decks, but so far it's never been viable in my meta.
I definitely run Wild Mongrel, Noose Constrictor, and Dakmor Salvage in my The Gitrog Monster EDH deck, cycling through that deck near infinitely as long as you're running an oldschool Ulamog, Kozilek, or Emracool. But all that business I feel is better suited to EDH. The Rog is just too slow at 5 mana and you need to get all those pieces, it just doesn't cut it for competative modern.
I also used to run the Dakmor Salvage + Raven's Crime combo in this build but I opted for something more proactive rather than limiting against my opponent. Usually my big problem in the mainboard is when I'm outpaced by combo like Ad-nauseam or cheri0s. This is usually solved by going heavy mill to get them to dump their combo pieces, it works a lot since I already run 4 Hedron Crabs, but the problem is consistency and my reliance on crabs. basically I need cheap mill threats 5-8 in my sideboard, and right now Im looking at + . the super-nice added bonus to completely switching modes with the sideboard is that after game 1 people usually side in grave hate thanks to the popularity of modern dredge. once they windmill slam a Rest in Peace, you can just help them windmill slam the rest of their deck into exile. it feels real real good.

User:ShotgunCrocodile Archangel of Thune is the counter Lord. Abzan Battle Priest makes the counters get out of hand and feeds all the win conditions of the deck. I run Survival of the Fittest in place of Fauna Shaman.

Fauna Shaman? Really easy way to get Craterhoof and Allosaurus Rider, and its an elf.
