4 copies of Black Sun's Zenith... fair enough. I can't argue that. But I will stick to my guns on my other enchantments as they allow shenanigans to continue on my opponents turn. Blowfly Infestation allows the combo to go off and Everlasting Torment lets my insects/snakes replace themselves if they block or are blocked. I'll probably end up dropping Fate Transfer for some actual removal, Necroskitter for the 2 more Black Sun's, and maybe -1 Everlasting Torment for +1 Undying Evil which comes in surprisingly handy.

You should definitely play some infect cards like Glistener Elf, Phyrexian Hydra and Plague Stinger. Also, when the Blowfly Infestation, Crumbling Ashes, Necroskitter combo pulls up, you're hard to stop. Try to get more of them.

Ooh cool deck, never thought about having wither creatures fight opponents to make them weaker but it sounds awesome!
Blowfly Infestation is a cool enchantment that, in my opinion, should replace Everlasting Torment. It seems a little bit pointless since almost all your creatures have wither anyways. I get the synergy with Heart-Piercer Bow but I think a Viridian Longbow would be better (or even a Pathway Arrows) because you can equip it to creatures you don't want to attack like Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons to ping their face and get a counter on a creature or put it on a wither creature when they have a big creature on the board you don't want to swing into.

Adding equipment that lets your creatures do damage will allow your deathtouching snake tokens to tap to destroy your opponents creatures.

Going into FNM:Modern tonight, I think my maindeck will have Ambush Viper replaced by Duress for recon and I'm sideboarding Damping Sphere in place of Dispossess. I've also considered mainboarding Wickerbough Elder in place of Necroskitter, but it depends on the representation of Control decks vs Token decks. Tron is the only deck that is giving me issues at the moment. I need to find a good balance between being prepared for it and handling all other threats.

I havent actually played with wither effects myself, put i admire how it looks.
if you are looking for reasons to run red there is always Everlasting Torment and Boggart Ram-Gang. The forementioned could somewhat get in the way of your obelisk spider depending on how much you need the lifegain. the second allows you to put more pressure on further justifying Everlasting Torment. Seeing as bouth are three drops they could maybe hurt your curve.
finally you could also consider Necroskitter for added value.
let me hear your thoughts as i am very much interested in seeing things from others view ;D

@PauperPower Thanks for the upvote, Necroskitter is actually in there, Contagion Engine and Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon cost a bit too much for me to keep it budget. But I'll put a Serrated Arrows in my sideboard and test it. It seems a bit on the slow side but putting -1/-1 counter for free on something 3 turns in a row is pretty good.
I'm also no big fan of how the infect mechanic isn't balanced for commander lifetotals and thus it being such a cheesy win. Because of that I refrain from putting infect cards into the deck.
