Winding Constrictor continues to be one of my favorite cards. Great to see it prosper in Pioneer!
A few suggestions:
I never liked Dreadhorde Invasion . Even with Constrictor and Hardened Scales it still looks awkward. Nissa, Voice of Zendikar on the other hand is just phenomenal in this deck. I'd play more of those instead.
Both Pelt Collector and Experiment One are awesome early plays for this deck. I'd put in some number (if not all) and take out all Llanowar Elves , Jadelight Ranger , Knight of Autumn and Scavenging Ooze . Knight and Ooze are good sideboard cards though.
Rishkar, Peema Renegade is a super strong 3-drop for the archetype, I wouldn't sleeve up without a few copies.
Since you added white, Anafenza, the Foremost could also go in. She adds counters and does a good job at triggering the 1-drops, plus the exile clause comes up occasionally.
Dromoka's Command is a strong removal spell that also has synergy with your counter theme. Might go down on Fatal Push and Vraska's Contempt . Contempt is just worse than Murderous Rider and Hero's Downfall anyway.
Good luck brewing!

Deathrite Shaman , Scavenging Ooze , and Grim Flayer all require cards in the graveyard and you only have 3 Fabled Passage and 2 Collective Brutality to enable them. Smuggler's Copter and Grim Flayer can help, obviously, but I wouldn't want to rely on getting in to enable delirium.
Also, I generally dislike Smuggler's Copter in BGx decks with bigger creatures, seeing as it's roughly similar to something like your other powerful 2 and 3 drops in size, doesn't give much card advantage, and requires another chunky creature to tap down to enable it ( Deathrite Shaman is the only creature I would be happy not blocking/attacking with, but even then you're losing all the abilities).
I think you need more of a reason to splash white. Currently you have 5 lands that make white for 4 Siege Rhino s and 4 sideboard cards. I would cut white currently, possibly to splash blue for Oko, Thief of Crowns , Drown in the Loch , etc. If you really want to keep white, I don't think a single late-game threat is enough of a reason. So, you could mainboard a few of the sideboard white cards you put and/or add Anguished Unmaking and whatever other powerful white cards.

Some things to consider:
- Opt seems misplaced as blue is your splash color and it doesn't do anything for your gameplan. I'd add more creatures instead.
- Once Upon a Time gets a lot worse the fewer creatures you have. I'd remove them or add more creatures.
- Collective Brutality is a great card, but I think it'll be better in the sideboard unless you have some ways to also abuse the discard clause.
- You have 0 fetch lands such as Fabled Passage and/or Evolving Wilds meaning your Deathrite Shaman will very rarely be able to function as a mana dork, which is the part you usually want the most.
- Add turn 1 mana dorks so Oko, Thief of Crowns can come down turn 2, which is the nutter.
- Siege Rhino usually adds reach to an aggressive Abzan deck, but this is more controlling.
- 4 colors might be a bit of a stretch and seems unnecessary. I'd go for either Sultai or Abzan.
Looking forward to see what you come up with!

Some valid points there deffinitly, Elspeth seems like a good sideboard option against control. The only issue I have is her being 6 mana. She doesn't make the cut in modern for a reason. Still worth it to test though.
Now that I look at it, the gryff might also be counterproductive. Siege Rhino and Satyr Wayfinder are essential components, it also shuts off Phyrexian Revoker . Back to the drawingboard it is then. Thanks for the insight.

Don't like it that you call this burn. :-( Abrade can't go to the face. :-)

I'm kind of bummed that M13 isn't included. I can understand why Innistrad block is not included, but I really-really want to use Vampire Nighthawk in this format. I guess Thundermaw Hellkite and Thragtusk are to blame.

Hi, I'm looking for some cards for this deck: Ephemerate Reanimator
Here's a quick outline of the game plan:
If there's nothing to reanimate or no reanimate spells, jank them out with Ephemerate value
I'm looking for some better creatures for graveyard stacking, like ones with a Satyr Wayfinder effect that get a creature or sorcery instead of a land.
Some lower cmc general-use creatures that can incidentally put stuff in the graveyard (ex. a creature that gains you life and lets you discard) would be good to know about as well since that would round out the Ephemerate value plan. I'm considering Seasoned Pyromancer , but it's pretty off-color and there might be better options in BGuw. (I'm not against off-color card suggestions though)

SynergyBuild: Questing Beast is better than Siege Rhino , period. this isn't a discussion or debate, its cold hard facts. you wanna talk about blockers? did you forget Questing Beast has deathtouch? so that already proves one of your points objectively wrong. not gonna waste my time explaining the rest. you're just as stubborn as you've always been.
