Nimble Mongoose Discussion

Depends on the format. Green has some excellent cards of a few descriptions. It wants a little for creature removal (even if it does have a little) but playing it gives you access to Regrowth, Eternal Witness, a lot of disenchant effects, Doubling Season, really solid ramp, and great finishers. Also a couple of tutors. And, though this might be just me, Overwhelming Stampede effects, which can kill multiple people with ease.

Very cool build! Seems like a lot of fun when it goes off.
Have you considered 1-2 Hooting Mandrills and/or Gurmag Anglers as potential top-ends? They can drop turn 3-4 pretty consistently if your beetles/feeders are stalling out, especially if you were to swap out some of your Jungle Hollows for Evolving Wilds.
If you're not feeling the Delve, there are some other cool, synergistic cards that come to mind:
- Songs of the Damned and Caravan Vigil for ramp
- Soulshriek to help with your Rite of Consumption plan
- Nimble Mongoose will be amazing with quick threshold
- Vile Rebirth and Shamble Back to fuel your sac outlets in black
- Chatter of the Squirrel and Scatter the Seeds and Night Soil to fuel sac in green
- Ghastly Demise for cheap, efficient removal
- Blossoming Wreath and Pulse of Murasa to stall aggro
- Dregscape Zombie and Rotting Rats because this deck could break Unearth
Love it as is, just thought I'd share... Happy brewing!

OK, so there are a few eldrazi decks in Legacy.
Big Eldrazi with Mana Rocks, Cloudpost Eldrazi, UW Stoneblade Eldrazi, GW Flicker Eldrazi, Colourless Eldrazi Stompy, UW Ulamog Eldrazi.
These decks all have 1 thing in common. They lean on the power of the good eldrazi with 3-4 Eye of Ugin and Eldrazi Temple to power out Thought-Knot Seer and Reality Smasher. Cards which you are not running.
This deck is inconsistent, with out a full playset of any of the good cards, and the cards you've got a low impact. Why play a 1 mana 1/1 with ingest and who loots on death, when you can play a turn 1 Nimble Mongoose, Deathrite Shaman or Delver of Secrets Flip.
What element of Eldrazi do you want to focus on? Their low cost exile synergy, their midrange beaters, their high end beasties?

That's everything I have that's unlisted from your wants. Everything that's listed as a match I checked to make sure I still have, so request anything. There are a few cards that I've offered to other people for trades, so if you want them I'll wait a day or two on their reply (specifically, the Eldrazi Displacers you mentioned).
Since you mentioned edition, I tried to be accurate on what printing each card is with these. I can't guarantee that everything in my binder is 100% accurate on edition, but I try to do my best to make sure each card is at least showing the correct art and card frame.
Cards of yours I'm specifically interested in are: Diabolic Intent, 2 Stoneforge Mystics, Gate to Phyrexia, Monastery Mentor, 2 Toxic Deluge, Forbidden Orchard, and Quirion Ranger, though of course I'll trade for any other matches as well.
Hope to hear from you.

Nimble Mongoose is a great body for strategies such as Delirium.
Ash Barrens may be more useful in Pauper than Evolving Wilds to enable Delirium. The jury's still out, but it wouldn't hurt to test. Otherwise, cycling lands I believe are a must in graveyard-based Pauper decks (Barren Moor, Tranquil Thicket).
Borderland Explorer has good power and a relevant effect.
Deepcavern Imp is a good flying curve-topper.
