Misthollow Griffin Discussion

I really like the idea of this deck, but I feel like there are a few things that this deck has that slow it down. To start, I don't know if this is just a budget deck that you wanted to put together or if it is a deck that you want to legitimately see lots of play. The advice I'm giving is to help push the power level of this closer to high performing and top tier decks in the format, ignoring the cost of any of the upgrades. I feel there are too many 3 drops all together, I really dont feel Graveblade Marauder is any good. It feels really slow and while deathtouch is nice upside for it, it just pales in comparison to the other 3 drops of the deck. I get trick you want to do with Misthollow Griffin, it looks fun and it looks like there is loads of synergy with it and your deck, but, I think including the card is taking away from other possible includes or completed playsets of cards that aren't in the deck. Your mana base tells me that this is a budget deck, but if you want it to perform better, Opulent Palace, Yavimaya Coast, and some number of basic lands should be cut for fetch lands and shock lands. The other part why I think this is so important is that it would help you trim down your deck faster and it allows you to get to your good cards faster and more reliably. Another thing, it also allows Hedron Crab to be double triggered in one turn. I think the removal package is incredibly slow, considering that all of your removal spells, your 2 Autumnal Gloom, and most of your creatures are all 3 drops. This can make your deck incredibly clunky if you get low lands hands. Another suggestion is to find cheaper alternatives to some of your 3 drops so that the deck can overcome some clunkyness. I think a card that slots perfectly in the deck is Dryad Arbor that can be fetched for if you need a land, it can also be exiled to cast Skaab Ruinator, it generates zombies with Sidisi, Brood Tyrant, etc. Grisly Salvage can be used as way to semi-tutor cards while filling the graveyard. Grim Flayer can be used as a faster and stronger version of either Nyx Weaver or Splinterfright. A couple Search for Azcanta may replace Autumnal Gloom. Even a few small and cheap changes could just be to slot in 1-2 Murderous Cut for Putrefy, Thought Scour as additional self-mill, and Grisly Salvage for better consistency could go a long way. I hope some of these could help you. I also hope all this didn't come off as me try to take over your deck idea. Not every single part of the deck needs to be changed and I think you have a good starting place for a deck that could be something even more explosive.

Would rather just remove the creature than Armament of Nyx
There are better lands than guildgates that are still cheap (like life lands)
Leonin Sun Standard is ok, but I'm not a huge fan.
Removal: Bant Charm Treva's CharmArmy of Allah is meh. Misthollow Griffin is too costly. Hovermyr won't block too much with 2 toughness, so vigilance isn't too great, making 2 mana cost, too much. Aven Sunstriker cost too much for its power.

I didn't think of that. Sorry, it is just that card was in my collection already. Anyway, my suggestion that I know is budget is Misthollow Griffin. My reason is that this card can play well with Back from the Brink. Plus it is a 3/3 flier for 4 mana. Aso, Necropouncer is a living weapon equipment with haste.

If you went with the normal Misthollow Griffin/Eternal Scourge combo you could get infinite untaps and potentially use a noncreature outlet to win the game with, but then you're essentially playing Tazri Food Chain without access to Black. It also becomes a 3 card combo instead of a 2 card one... I don't think it's worth it.

Your deck seems specifically tuned to your meta so I am not sure how much my suggestions will help, but here are some things that you might consider.
Personally I feel that Rhystic Study is superior to Mystic Remora. You avoid cumulative upkeep cost, which for a controlling deck such as this seems important, and Rhystic Study triggers off all spells your opponents cast, not just non-creature spells.
I am not sure about your meta, but including Glacial Chasm to help stall until you assemble combo pieces is an option.
Lastly, I'd suggest a board wipe or two. I think Cyclonic Rift would be great here.
