Definitely go up on Rite of Consumption.

Dash Hopes would fit right in with this style of deck even though it's not that great elsewhere.

I know I am late to the conversation, but I am toying with a consuming aberration deck myself, and I found that Rite of Consumption is good for those "i can't get through with my Consuming Aberration" situations.

Pulling in Rite of Consumption to kill opponents when I can't attack (prison decks, etc.)

Maybe add cards like Hatred to sneak in commander damage to win. Also maybe try something like Tainted Strike as another way to sneak that win in. If you are going to be playing a drawn out game then something like Curse of Predation could be helpful. I've played games where skullbriar has gotten big enough that Rite of Consumption just won me the game, it could be a good include. Tuskguard Captain can give skullbriar trample, which is good.

It could be good to have a different win con, I enjoy things like Rise of the Dark Realms + Life's Finale to be able to swing in with a bunch of bodies

I would replace the Evolving Wilds with Rushwood Grove it is kind of a slow play but it is good for late game ramp, especially if you can pair it with something like Vastwood Hydra

I also have a skillbriar deck, Skullbriar's counter attack, mine is more creature heavy, feel free to check it out and give me some suggestions!

Final Strike is pretty awful, but Rite of Consumption is a good deal better.

Cool deck, I've tried to make a Varolz deck before but I wasn't really able to make it work right heh.

First thing I should say is that Unearth isnt legal in modern; I'd consider playing Claim in its place since you have both Vexing Devil and Death's Shadow in your deck. It's a pretty good replacement, you cant reanimate Varolz or the Phyrexian Soulgorger with it but the Fame half and the fact that you can dump it with Faithless Looting if you dont want to dump anything else is worth it, maybe making it even better in this deck. I've seen it work really well in B/R burn decks and some Death's Shadow decks, it adds a lot of explosiveness.

Another suggestion: Rite of Consumption As a 1-of maindeck or a couple in the sideboard. It would add some more explosiveness, a way to deal with planeswalkers, and a life gain spell all in one go.

Now I have a question: is there really much point in playing Gyre Sage? It seems rather underwhelming since you have no mana sinks and no high-cost cards; a lot of your cards require colors other than green, so it seems likely you'd just have a bunch of excess green mana after running out of Black or Red. Without a solid payoff, I just think there are better cards that could go in those slots, like Lotleth Troll or Lightning Bolt or Abrupt Decay. (Also, your deck lacks removal, put some removal in)

Lastly, I have qualms with your sideboard. From what I can tell you just kind of stuck some cards in there, so I'm guessing you either didn't have time or just didn't bother. It'd be nice to see an actual sb if you get around to it :)

+Supreme Exemplar, preferably to champion Flamekin Harbinger to search another biggie. You could also use cards like Fling and Rite of Consumption to sac the big ones after they hit (10 damage in the hit, 10 damage in the sac, gg). I like the Lorwyn elementals a lot, I have a ETB triggers + Champion to repeat ETB + Biggies thematic deck if you'd like to check it out. xD
