Looks pretty sweet! Here are some other cards to consider if you havnt already!

Thought Scour can help fill the graveyard to fuel delve for cards like Tasigur, Gurmag Angler, and Murderous Cut

Desolate Lighthouse>Drownyard since it helps fix your draws instead of simply milling

Your deck has a pretty high curve, Cruel Ultimatum Control is a pretty sweet deck if you wanted to make it like that with big top end.

Anger of the Gods>Pyroclasm. Sometimes the extra damage and exile clause is very relevant.

Watse goeie Standard Pauper decks is daar? Ek weet in non-standard pauper is Gurmag Angler, Gray Merchant of Asphodel, en Mulldrifter goeie kaarte, maar het geen idee in standard nie.

Gurmag Angler and Duress would be good in that deck

I'm currently building a B/w version of the deck (not so budget) but here are my points:

Besides that, I would put an extra point for discussion:

  • Gurmag Angler has an insane clock and doesn't die to Fatal Push, I'm running 1 on sideboard but is hard to say how effective could be. Thinking of replacing my mainboard 1x Pack Rat for another one, just for testing, but the Rat is really good when they got empty handed... Tough decision.

Chuubii on Pauper Golgari Midrange

It definitely isn't optimal, I am having trouble finding an effecient creature for that spot. I see most black Pauper decks running Gurmag Angler (often trouble getting to 7 even with Delve), and Gray Merchant of Asphodel (not enough devotion), but those really don't fit the deck well.

I've tested out Nantuko Shaman, Golgari Brownscale, Byway Courier - none seem to provide the above-the-curve midrange goodness of Putrid Leech.

Emzed on 4 Color Saheeli Evolution

With so many ways to find and flicker it, Reflector Mage seems really strong here. I've recently started testing a very similar deck, and having the ability to turn Eldritch Evolution into a removal and reusing it with Felidar Guardian or Saheeli Rai is just amazing. I would definitely never play less than one Reflector Mage in my maindeck, it's clearly better than the 4th Path to Exile in my eyes.
I've also been very impressed with how Fiery Justice performed in my testing. It can kill 2-3 creatures against some decks (Affinity, Company decks, Merfolk), a planeswalker plus a random Snapcaster Mage against others, and the lifegain for the opponent is often irrelevant. Against decks with Death's Shadow, it's even a big upside to make them gain life, sometimes allowing you to kill a Gurmag Angler and a Shadow for just 3 mana.
Magus of the Moon is in my maindeck as a 1-of, it's such an easy way to win games via Eldritch Evolution. It's not a combo with Path to Exile though, which is why I only run one maindeck Path.
