Stromkirk Occultist might be fun too. Neat deck.

I played around with a similar deck using a burn spell + Worldfire + Spellweaver Helix to finish off an opponent. It was never quite fast enough for Modern, but it worked fine in more casual games, albeit it was a bit too linear for my taste. While your deck has a slightly different goal, I think I can still provide some useful insights.
The biggest issue I see is your deck doesn't have a good way of getting your bomb into the graveyard--casting a nine mana spell is a bit out of the question, particularly as you're lacking an explosive ramp package, and hoping to discard down to seven is just not feasible.
You have a couple options in mono-Green.
- Borderland Explorer - provides a decent blocker that you can return to your hand with various effects
- Deepwood Drummer - helps protect you from harm, but can't be used the turn it comes out.
- Greenseeker - ensures you reach your land drops, I think this is generally worse than the Llanowar Mentor (below).
- Llanowar Mentor - ramp and a chump blocker is not bad, though again, the inability to activate the ability the turn you play it is.
- Noose Constrictor - can block with reach and allows discards immediately.
- Nostalgic Dreams - gives you flexibility in what you discard.
I'd also consider cutting Advent of the Wurm--it does not really add all that much on its onw to justify splashing White.

I was thinking, perhaps the familiars should be put in their respective 3-color shards? Or both sections.

I definitely agree with more ramp. I'd personally cut Grimoire of the Dead, Deathcap Cultivator, Geth, Lord of the Vault, Greenseeker, and Avoid Fate for Golgari Signet, Orzhov Signet, Selesnya Signet, Skyshroud Claim, and Yosei, the Morning Star.

Greenseeker is a pretty decent card I don't see often. It can get you good value in more budget friendly decks. It ramps you, and it puts stuff into your graveyard, which is what you want. Seems pretty cool to me, I'll definitely try it in my deck.
Thanks for the list!

I like that suggestion. Ill give it a try. As far as 1 mana creatures as discard outlets theres a few nice options:
Ruthless Sniper- well not technically a discard outlet but can be abused with heavy discard/cycling
I think of all these, the imp is the most efficient.

Aren't you a little worried about the early game? It seems that the average creature cost is 6+ and only 1 mana rock and 3 ramp spells. I feel you will have a hard time staying alive to cast your cards against an aggressive field.
I usually like to play 37 lands with 10 mana rocks and 10 Ramps spells in my green decks. here are some to consider: Drover of the Mighty, Birds of Paradise, Darksteel Ingot, Commander's Sphere, Collective Voyage, Oreskos Explorer, Tempt with Discovery, Veteran Explorer, Expedition Map, Gift of Estates, Greenseeker, Journey of Discovery, Horizon Spellbomb, Journeyer's Kite/Thaumatic Compass Flip, Mycosynth Wellspring, Nissa, Vastwood Seer Flip, Peregrination, Pilgrim's Eye, Search for Tomorrow, Seek the Horizon, Sprouting Vines, Sylvan Reclamation, Sylvan Ranger, Sylvan Scrying, Weathered Wayfarer, Yavimaya Elder, Wild-Field Scarecrow, Burnished Hart
