I would take out Street Wraith, Pact of the Titan and Haze of Rage, wraith is only really good for Death's Shadow decks, pacts upkeep cost is rarely worth it, and haze is very slow for modern and dependant on you having creatures to not be a dead card.
I would also take out Simian Spirit Guide that card is more for storm or combo and its usually a dead draw after turn 1
That totals 14 cards out

Seething Song is banned, thank goodness so it doesn't even work anyways. That can be circumvented but not as easily. The power necessary to speed out a T1 hasted Blightsteel Colossus is immense, that restricts the deck build so much that it practically builds itself. Also, Shane is right. You want 4 Pact of the Titan over any of the free artifacts because 1 copy will not guarantee you'll get a copy in your opening hand. Really you need all 8 but we'll have to settle for 4 copies. Simian Spirit Guide, Pyretic Ritual, Desperate Ritual, and Infernal Plunge will make up our mana acceleration suite.
5-6x Flex Slots for interaction
An argument can also be made to include fetches as well. Deck thinning can be really important when you want to dig for Madcap Experiment but it also means you get one card less that isn't a Blightsteel Colossus. I'm unsure of how the math would turn out as to which road is better.
There you have it. This deck does nothing else so you want to win as fast as possible. It'll be fun when it goes off but otherwise expect to do nothing a lot.

You can use Pact of the Titan instead of the little artifacts.

Another great card that goes with Bushwhacker is Pact of the Titan. There is several draws threatening a turn 2 kill involving these

Ok so have you considered the other 2 pacts in B and R to work withHive Mind? Slaughter Pact won't target most of your creatures, and your opponents can't counter each other pacts so it becomes a "kill each creature and all non-black players lose" situation with hive mind. As for Pact of the Titan nobodies going to really gonna be able to do anything with said 4/4 giant token if they don't play red in their deck.
Also, two really low cost enchantment to run with this type of deck is Vile Consumption and Breathstealer's Crypt. Vile Consumption becomes an immediate clock against any deck with tokens or high number of creatures, and Breathstealer's Crypt essentially lets you know what's going in people hands and gets rid of creatures. Not to mention they draw the card still before being forced to pay 3 life and discarding. And I don't think anyone wants to pay life when facing a Nekusar build.

I'm thinking about building a group hug deck around Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis because I really only play super spikey decks and my playgroup sometimes hates me, haha.
Maybe it is my Spike mentality seeping through, but since you have Hive Mind, why not run the Pacts? Pact of the Titan and Summoner's Pact are both group hug if your opponent has the mana for it, and if not then you have an alternative win condition! Pact of Negation is a solid card regardless of Hive Mind, but the combo exists there as well. Intervention Pact is the most "eh" of the possible Pacts, but even still, it does support a group hug strategy with a little lifegain.
This may be far too mean for a proper group hug deck, but I wanted to see what you thought about it!
