litlamzetiv Thanks so much for your detailed suggestions. I can't believe I had forgotten about Lhurgoyf this whole time. Also, as far as Canal Dredger is concerned, I opted against them only because I couldn't find the card for play online. I knew about the other two you mentioned, but only after reading your comment (I think I'm starting to forget things in my old age.) Once again, thanks for the help, and I'll definitely be taking a look at your deck.

I like the twist on the theme, though I wonder if it's not playing too hard against itself. For example, Gurzigost is counter intuitive to this deck as he plays against the Splinterfright. While you might want to retrieve some items from your graveyard, you may be better off just sticking things there that you're happy putting there.
Abilities that work well with this strategy include: Cycling, discard effects (including Spellshapers, & Grandeur, & Dredge) and effects that also benefit from having things in the graveyard (Threshold and Delirium). Other cards that boost themselves based upon graveyard contents (since you're already B&G, I'd suggest Lhurgoyf, Mortivore, and Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord).
I also would tend to eschew non-creature spells, as they don't help pump Splinterfright. For example:
Those are just some ideas. If you'd like to see what I did with this deck, you can see it here:https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/goyf-1/

nice, I've never heard of Lhurgoyf before. I'll look into getting that one, especially where it's less than 50 cents atm.
Any recommendations for countering the graveyard hate?

@S1ayerMonkey Elite is a pretty cool card, but if you're thinking of building this deck then I would suggest Lhurgoyf as it's only 1 mana more than elite and gets out of hand even faster. But at the level of play my group is at and how rampant graveyard hate is, I can't afford too many cards with conditional power/toughness that depend on the graveyard.

I like what you've got going here.
I'd get rid of some of the small vanilla beaters like Leatherback Baloth and Swordwise Centaur for stuff that scales for multiplayer -- Lhurgoyf, Copperhoof Vorrac, Bonehoard, Forgotten Ancient. All are cheap, but potentially become huge.

Looking though this deck, I am quite confused. You run ABUR duals, but not shocks, fetches, or checks, which are a bit more useful for color fixing. You also don't run any ramp from library, such as Nature's Lore, Wood Elves, Skyshroud Claim, or Farseek to make duals by themselves an ok decision, and you aren't running Rampant Growth, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, or Explosive Vegetation to make a high concentration of basics a good idea.
