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.

I might keep Splinterfright, with Nemesis of Mortals, but I'd probably rather play Hooting Mandrills or add a few more keywords and use Soulflayer. Off the top of my head Gladecover Scout and Hired Poisoner plus your already existing creatures with trample could give a pretty scary Soulflayer.

Varolz, the Scar-Striped is great if you are using something like Hunted Horror, Death's Shadow, Force of Savagery or even Yargle, Glutton of Urborg, so might be worth considering. This does mean shaping your deck to try and get Varolz, above all...

In such a creature heavy deck Throne of the God-Pharaoh would also make sense and if you choose to use delirium Traverse the Ulvenwald would be a good way to fetch your finisher. There is a but, graveyard hate is very common in modern, so you need a plan that lets you adapt if your graveyard is exiled, honestly this is where something like Throne is really useful, since you can still cast your creatures.

Hope this helps with your brew.

This is going to be a bit slow simply because you don't have any ramp, cards like Arbor Elf + Utopia Sprawl, Beastcaller Savant or Sylvan Caryatid. You also might want to consider Boneyard Wurm or Nemesis of Mortals given the number of creatures going to your yard. A rather fun interaction is Promised Kannushi can bring Strangleroot Geist back to your hand, ready to cast again.

Hope this helps, good luck with your deck.
