Thanks, I replaced Naturalize with Natural State

My mistake on blossoming defense.

Fortunately, 4 Natural State is a great SB card for some metas.

Before you start buying cards, maybe you can answer the question: Do you see this deck as being competitive one day? As it is, there are ways to make a Golgari graveyard-based synergy deck competitive but it will probably become a Delirium deck eventually. There are also objectively better graveyard decks out there such as Dredge and Living End etc. The main reason why they are better is not because they avoid graveyard hate (anything from Rest in Peace, Nihil Spellbomb, Relic of Progenitus or even just Scavenging Ooze - all commonly played in the format), but because they are consistently faster than your deck. Therefore, I'm not sure how much money you are willing to spend and how much you want to win. That being said, cards like Abrupt Decay and the 3 lands I mentioned are always going to hold value because they are played in quite a lot of other decks.

But if you are looking for a semi-budget way to upgrade this deck and use it to win a few matches at FNM, I think it can still be done. 4 Satyr Wayfinder and 4 Splinterfright is correct, and I think you can go up to 3 Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord. 2 more Elves of Deep Shadow to complete the playset is probably helpful for ramp. Not so sure how useful the Deadeye Tracker is going to be in this deck. 3 Nighthowler is ok, I think, it could even go up to 4 if you want. I'd take out Necrotic Ooze because you don't have that many useful abilities to copy. Den Protector is a much slower Eternal Witness so if you have any of the latter you can do a straight swap. You can also consider Boneyard Wurm or 1-2 Ghoultree. You'll need to up the creature count - maybe around 23 creatures.

As for spells, I think 4 discard (2 Raven's Crime and 2 Inquisition of Kozilek) and 4 removal (2 Abrupt Decay and 2 Fatal Push) can work. 1 Life from the Loam is always useful, and maybe just 3 each of Commune with the Gods and Grisly Salvage. That will put you at 15 spells.

Lastly, 22 lands - it's as fine as a budget manabase could be. Maybe you can swap the last Jungle Hollow for a Llanowar Wastes because that's not so pricey.

But most importantly, your sideboard needs to be silver bullets that will help you against other matchups. As of now, your sideboard is just too random. You'll need graveyard hate that doesn't affect yourself (Nihil Spellbomb, Scrabbling Claws, Scarab Feast); you'll need removal for artifacts/enchantments in general (Naturalize, Natural State); you'll need boardwipes against weenies and tokens (Drown in Sorrow, or even Illness in the Ranks - much more narrow though); you'll need lifegain against Burn and aggro (Gnaw to the Bone); and you could keep 2 more Raven's Crime in the sideboard against control. You'll also need land destruction such as Ghost Quarter, Tectonic Edge or the new Field of Ruin against Valakut decks and the like.

@ IronBlackZepp I added Vandalblast, Stifle, Spell Snare, and Natural State to my sideboard and I'm chuckling because the deck update somehow dropped my deck from a rating of 70% competitive to 30% competitive according to that little bar under the deck charts. I know this deck runs some unconventional cards, but come on now. I'm curious as to how the algorithm for that competitive meter works because it is in need of some serious retuning.

if you're not gonna consider cards that are $5 or more, then don't bother with the modern format. not trying to be mean, but if you wanna have any hope of winning any games at all at a modern fnm, you're gonna need at least a few cards that cost $5 or more. and thats just the lands. Worship is not nearly enough of a reason to use Fragmentize over Natural State. its just not. instant speed is better. everything in an affinity deck or bogles deck (arguably the biggest reasons to run artifact or enchantment removal) is 3 or less.

Natural State / Fragmentize over Naturalize. I shouldn't have to explain why.

Check out my deck: Golgari Budget -1/-1

Think about Fatal Push, Nest of Scarabs, Hapatra's Mark, Dissenter's Deliverance, Prey Upon / Nature's Way (works with your Deathtouch snakes), and Natural State//Appetite for the Unnatural (if your meta has lots of monuments, and Gate to the Afterlife, the formal is cheaper).

In land base you could just replace one Brushland with Breeding Pool as your every fetch finds it.

Then what to take out from board:

Silhana Ledgewalker Doesn't seem necessary and you don't need 3 Rest in Peaces as Dregde is not commonly played anymore (At least on high level tournaments).

Or you can maybe cut 1 Natural State as you have 3 Stony Silences.
