grisly salvage and Grapple with the Past are similar cards. Early game GS is better and if you are adding one of the suggested recursion cards i would therefore ditch grapple. doom blade is a good swap out for nameless inversion.

I think your creature count is probably a little high:

Moldgraf Scavenger - is not the most active creature in the deck a 0/4 isn't great early game and a 3/4 is not great late game

Ghoultree & Nemesis of Mortals do not have any evasion or trample so i'm not sure how often they will win you the game in a deck that cant give them either.

Soo long story short my recommendations would be:

Doombladex3-> Nameless Inversion x3

Moldgraf Scavenger x4 & Dead Weight x2-> Traveler's Amulet x4 & Satyr Wayfinder x2

Grapple with the Past x3-> Return from Extinction x3

Ghoultree x2 & Nemesis of Mortals -> Mindwrack Demon x3

What's your opinion on Nemesis of Mortals vs Tombstalker ?

It doesn't have flying, but it can self-pump to a 10/10. It doesn't exile cards from your graveyard, but it needs a specific card type in the graveyard. Would it be worth testing?

c0rocotta A couple things about grave hate when playing this deck from my own experiences. Rest in Peace is almost unbeatable unless you draw Nature's Claim or Assassin's Trophy .

The grave hate that one time removes your graveyard like Nihil Spellbomb , Relic of Progenitus , and Tormod's Crypt can actually be played around to a somewhat decent level. For example, if you have 4 creatures in your grave and they have not popped spell bomb or relic or crypt by the time you gain priority on your own main phase 1, you can cast Nemesis of Mortals for 2 mana and they can't do anything about it. Same with Ghoultree . Once these creatures are on the stack it doesn't matter if your graveyard is eliminated. Your opponent often lets you get these creatures into play because they want to wait and wait until you have a really full yard, but you don't need that many creatures in your yard to start casting these two guys on turn 3.

You can also bounce back pretty quickly once they do decide to exile your graveyard. If you hold a Grisly Salvage back that can usually get you back in it. Another thing to note, when your graveyard is exiled by bomb, relic, or crypt, any of your Splinterfright or Boneyard Wurm that die as a result will go to the graveyard after it was exiled and will start you off with a creature or two.

Grave hate definitely still wrecks you, but these are the ways you can sort of be strategic in the way you deploy your cards to get around some of the common hate cards out there.

I hadn't thought about Rancor ! Awesome suggestions. I threw in the Loxodon Warhammer in for the lifelink and trample. With this set up by turn 4 or 5 I'm only paying 2 for Nemesis of Mortals and at the most 3 for Ghoultree . Splinterfright perpetuates the self mill but I'll probably switch out two Nemesis of Mortals for a complete play set of Splinterfright and the other 2 for another Ghoultree and Ambush Viper just to round things off and make it more aggressive. MORE SUGGESTIONS PLEASE :)

Ezuri, claw of progress seems off in the 99, I'd suggest to drop him. Nemesis of Mortals is a pretty powerful snake that's easy to miss. Why not try it?

So after a day of testing, 1st the deck is fun and 2nd it puts up good results. I didn't run into too much grave hate though.

There are a few changes I would make. I would cut the 2x Woodland Cemetery for 2x Twilight Mire. Casting stuff like Nemesis of Mortals proved difficult at times due to double green demands.

I would also cut the 2x Witchbane Orb and 2x Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord for better stuff. Perhaps 2x Assassin's Trophy, 1x Choke, and 1x Raking Canopy.
