MrAsian on Splinterfright's stroll through the boneyard

Ghoultree is basically a bigger, better Nemesis of Mortals. I honestly don't see why you wouldn't run it. In a deck like this, you would want at least 12-16 cards that would shove cards into your graveyard, like Mulch, Grisly Salvage, and Satyr Wayfinder. This way, you can drop down a Ghoultree or a powerful Splinterfright much earlier on in the game.

I'm not quite sure why you removed Gnaw to the Bone. It's really a game changer in creature-heavy, self-mill decks.

Kessig Cagebreakers is a great win-con.

Thanks for the suggestions! I don't really like Beacon of Unrest. I just believe it is underwhelming at 5cmc. I can always Meren back Skullwinder if I want to grab non creature cards cards in the yard. Champion of Lambholt is something to consider though. After testing the deck if Kessig Cagebreakers is having trouble doing it alone I may try it. The card just doesn't seem to do enough on its own so I am going to leave it on the back-burner for now.

Entomber Exarch and Mesmeric Fiend definitely sound like cards to consider. I like the value package the deck has going now but really just don't know how it closes out games without Nooze/Mike & Friends combos. I guess I am going for keeping the board clear with Fleshbag Marauder, Merciless Executioner, and Dictate of Erebos and then finish up with Kessig Cagebreakers and Pathbreaker Ibex for lethal combat.

Well you have an idea but this needs a bit of work, creature heavy decks with little to no sorcories, instants, enchantments, and artifacts fall flat on their face for the lack of support. I'm going to list some for you.

Birthing Pod, Skullclamp, Lightning Greaves, Ashnod's Altar, Swiftfoot Boots, Bonehoard, Mind Stone, Commander's Sphere, Fellwar Stone, Lifecrafter's Bestiary, Whip of Erebos, Mesmeric Orb, Crucible of Worlds

Look forward to hearing more from you Jimmy_Chinchila.

Thanks for checking the deck out Rzepkanut! We seem to have similar instincts for card choices. I looked at Tyrant's Familiar during the first draft but it relies on having the commander in play. Mage-Ring Responder was more reliable and bypasses the drawback, but I ultimately went with Grimgrin, Corpse-Born. I also considered Kessig Cagebreakers but as you pointed out since the deck doesn't have that many creatures it doesn't make many wolves. I tested Blade of Selves initially too but not many of the cards rely on ETBs, and it only makes a few copies. Which could still be enough for something like Gisela, Blade of Goldnight or Medomai the Ageless or sometimes Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite. I'll put that back on the radar.

The deck looks pretty fun I definitely appreciate all of the silly combos. It does seem like maybe you could use some things to pull the Mana curve down a bit. One creature that I think would be especially awesome to be able to turn tokens into is Tyrant's Familiar. I know that it's another seven drop but that card is hilariously powerful. Another card that came to mind while reading your list is Blade of Selves. I really like having Genesis Chamber in Decks that want to flood the board with tokens however this one doesn't have a whole ton of actual creature cards to cast so it might not be great here. Same thing with Kessig Cagebreakers, I feel like that card would be amazing if you have enough creatures to meaningfully trigger it. It's hard to suggest cuts without actually seeing how the deck works cuz it's kind of weird. But good luck and Happy Gathering!
