Whenever a nontoken creature you control dies, put a slime counter on Gutter Grime, then put a green Ooze creature token onto the battlefield with "This creature's power and toughness are each equal to the number of slime counters on Gutter Grime."
Gutter Grime Discussion

You might be right about Akroma. There is a lot of red and black decks in my meta, however, so I might try it out first and see how it fares.
Also, I revisited my thoughts about Ooze Flux . I decided it was more effective than Gutter Grime , due to it's potential immediate effect. Gutter is helpful for boardwipes, but not amazing at any rate since it only triggers for nontoken creatures only.
Additionally, I decided that for my meta, and because this isn't really a graveyard focused combo deck, to swap Necrotic Ooze for Necroplasm . This is also to help me shift my strategy for this deck. I tend to go all out, instead of biding my time. So, I think a slower approach to victory is what I need to employ with this deck.
Also, I'm thinking about cutting some creatures to add in more control elements to better cope with playing multiplayer games..

You might get some mileage out some of the old-school ooze token cards- Gutter Grime makes grindy matchups hell for your opponent, Gelatinous Genesis is decent at flooding the board, and Ooze Flux / Biogenic Ooze has real potential.

babydaggers thanks for the suggestions. I love Fecundity and use it in Rhys's disgruntled forest. with great effect. However, in this deck, I may mill myself to death rather quickly. Feed the Pack, Golgari Germination, Greater Good, and Gutter Grime all specify non-token creatures and those are my main sacrifices. Savra, Queen of the Golgari on the other hand is a great card for this deck, unfortunately, I had her in this deck when i originally built it but had to take her out to make room for Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord who is a win condition.

I dig this deck - a few cards that have done work in my Meren deck Death Magic some of which are kinda 75% jank (which I love)

If you're running them, just mainboard Qasali Pridemage.
In terms of hyper-budget deckbuilding, I find its a lot easier to focus in on a 'gimmick' strategy than look for pure value, which is why a 'multicolour matters' build is good. I'd give some thought to degenerate Vizier of Remedies/Heartmender/Safehold Elite interactions myself, but pure multicolour matters can be strong.
Cute interactions- its what sets a budget deck apart from being a worse version of an expensive deck. Wild Pair and Trostani's Summoner. Playing to a value 3-4-5 drop plan can do a lot. Worm Harvest and similar offer a lot of value to back up Knight of New Alara. There are countless strategies around.
Well is worth a look for sideboard tech.
Giantbaiting has done well in some of my past budget lists, as has Boggart Ram-Gang. Spirit Bonds is an interesting engine to run alongside a more traditional wheenies list, which might help against 'value oriented' midrange metas.
The main thing is to settle into a gameplan. For aggro, its 'how do I do early damge, how do I bypass a strong board to close out the game'. Cards with haste, cards that want to attack turns 1-3, cards that deal a ton of direct damage turns 4-5.
For midrange its 'how do I make my hand worth enough more than my opponents and cash it in for damage'. Cards that do things when you do something you are doing anyway- jamming a ton of Brindle Boar variants with a Gutter Grime works in some metas.
For control its 'how do I stop my opponent closing out the game and slowly win'. Its real tricky on a budget.
For this specific deck, you need to make a choice- The 2-3-4 drops are very strong, but you need to commit to either producing creatures which are hard to remove an create a lot of value midgame, or end the game. Keep that choice in mind when picking cards and you'll get something great.
Joe9 on undying ooze

Corpsejack Menace is great, but have you considered either Hardened Scales or Winding Constrictor? If creatures are gaining more than one counter at a time, Corsejack gives the biggest reward. Undying creatures return to the battlefield with only one counter. Both of these cards have lower CMCs and provide the same reward for undying triggers.
Since this deck's average CMC is only 2.5, the mana ramp provided by Arbor Elf isn't strictly necessary. Have you considered filling that slot with another synergy, like graveyard play with Scavenging Ooze or Varolz, the Scar-Striped, token farming with Gutter Grime, or another sacrificing source AND direct opponent damage with the amazing Jinxed Idol?
This deck only has 5 cards which activate activate the ever important sacrifices, 3 Bloodflow Connoisseurs and 2 Altar's Reaps. That's not much. Adding a little extra with a few Jinxed Idols might help.
