Love this deck! I'm in the process of building a very similar one. I wish thrumming stone weren't so darn expensive! I'm sure when I buy one they'll immediately reprint it, or ban it...
I've compiled a list of cards I'm considering that aren't in your deck. I expect that many of them are cards you either: 1. Thought about and decided against. 2. Didn't want to shell out the cash for, (I feel ya) 3. Don't use in your play group. (I noticed you've got no tutors. A card like Mausoleum Secrets is very affordable and super strong in this deck. If your playgroup or you personally avoid tutors for balance/powerlevel/gameplay reasons, I commend you.) Hopefully there's a card or two in this list that make you say "oooh!", because your deck certainly got that reaction from me! Bloodbond March is INSANE and it's only 50 cents!
If any of these cards are like... aggressively bad, let me know so I don't put them in my deck, haha. I'm assuming you've actually assembled and playtested the deck, whereas I am still residing in the magical christmas land of my mind.
Erebos, God of the Dead
Archfiend of Depravity
Ob Nixilis, Unshackled
Butcher of Malakir
Journey to Eternity Flip
Dictate of Erebos
Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth
I haven't put much thought into what you would cut if you like any of these, aside from Blighted Fen . Once you get Bontu's Monument , Herald's Horn , or Jet Medallion out, Blighted Fen and any basic forests you end up with are gonna feel bad. Initiates of the Ebon Hand and Bog Initiate are spicy ways to fix the issue, but they are also... bad.
Side note: I'm curious how Rancor would be in this deck. It's a weird cost/benefit analysis because of course you want as many rats as possible, but when you can rancor to boost your sac creature +2/+0, then it pops back into your hand every time, it seems like the recursion value might add up. Also allows you to trample through extra damage on one player if they're gaining life. Anyone feel free to explain why Rancor is a dumb idea in this deck :)

so far, i just play with friends, but yeah, i am aware of the odd mana curve, but that is actually kinda intentional. this deck sort-of relies on drawing two cards. Nissa, Who Shakes the World for both her static ability of doubling your mana, and her -8 ability of playing all your lands from your deck (doubles my mana from 20, to 40) i use Ugin, Biogenic Ooze , and Nissa in MtG Arena... ugin+nissa give me the option of dropping up to a 40/40, and Biogenic+Nissa gives me the option to spawn up to 10 2/2 Ooze tokens each turn, that then get a +1/+1 counter each end step.
Both combinations have worked fairly well for me so far. and then i included Spidersilk Armor to give my creatures Reach so they can protect Nissa.
i do agree Endless is a better card than Ugin though, but you can't really add cards you don't know exist right? lol thanks for the tips, Tyrant-Thanatos

I'd recommend adding some anti-flying card, like Whiptongue Hydra , Hurricane , Akroma's Memorial , Spidersilk Armor , or at the very least something like Beast Within to get rid of one problem permanent.

Spidersilk Armor (make all your little snakes into spiders! Snake spiders? That's kinda horrifying...), Spike Weaver (do the + and - counters fight eachother too much?), Vivien Reid (Card advantage, kills flyers, and works well with proliferate), Vivien, Champion of the Wilds (Card advantage, turns your snakes into more spidersnakes! and works with proliferate)

Hey oeliberti, thanks for all the suggestions! I ordered a Garruk, Primal Hunter and kicked Arboreal Grazer out. I think i will do some playtest with this state of the deck, but i like the idea of putting in Spidersilk Armor , Vandalblast or Triumph of the Hordes
