Splinterfright's power and toughness are each equal to the number of creature cards in your graveyard.

At the beginning of your upkeep, put the top two cards of your library into your graveyard.

lagotripha on Cards for Blue/Green Elemental

Temur elementals feels the way to go. It also gives access to Young Pyromancer which gets a little silly with reef.

Its worth looking at turns 1-2-3 and planning around that- elementals has amazing options;

Old spellslinger cards like Nivmagus Elemental , value like Voice of Resurgence , Flickerwisp and Mulldrifter , a blink subtheme with Shorecrasher Elemental , tribal cards like Brighthearth Banneret and Rage Forger , staples like Fulminator Mage , weird synergy/combo like Vesperlark / Reveillark or Necroskitter , a land animation subtheme( Wind Zendikon , Sylvan Awakening , etc), combo ramp in Soulbright Flamekin / Runaway Steam-Kin / Storm Entity , take over the game cards like Spawnwrithe , graveyard strats like Vengevine / Splinterfright / Thunderkin Awakener .

There is enough support for pretty much anything from control to aggro- it just needs a dig into what synergies you need and what supporting cards make that good.

When Playing Izoni, you want as many creatures as possible instead of cards that do similar things because they count as extra insects when they die. It's also worth noting that creatures are the easiest thing to pull back out of the graveyard for repeated value. I propose the following changes:

Golgari Germination --> Sifter of Skulls OR Pawn of Ulamog

Deadbridge Chant --> Meren of Clan Nel Toth

Golgari Locket --> Sakura-Tribe Elder

Crawling Sensation --> Splinterfright

c0rocotta A couple things about grave hate when playing this deck from my own experiences. Rest in Peace is almost unbeatable unless you draw Nature's Claim or Assassin's Trophy .

The grave hate that one time removes your graveyard like Nihil Spellbomb , Relic of Progenitus , and Tormod's Crypt can actually be played around to a somewhat decent level. For example, if you have 4 creatures in your grave and they have not popped spell bomb or relic or crypt by the time you gain priority on your own main phase 1, you can cast Nemesis of Mortals for 2 mana and they can't do anything about it. Same with Ghoultree . Once these creatures are on the stack it doesn't matter if your graveyard is eliminated. Your opponent often lets you get these creatures into play because they want to wait and wait until you have a really full yard, but you don't need that many creatures in your yard to start casting these two guys on turn 3.

You can also bounce back pretty quickly once they do decide to exile your graveyard. If you hold a Grisly Salvage back that can usually get you back in it. Another thing to note, when your graveyard is exiled by bomb, relic, or crypt, any of your Splinterfright or Boneyard Wurm that die as a result will go to the graveyard after it was exiled and will start you off with a creature or two.

Grave hate definitely still wrecks you, but these are the ways you can sort of be strategic in the way you deploy your cards to get around some of the common hate cards out there.

This looks similar to my old Jarad deck. A few things I found useful were Splinterfright to both fill the grave and act as ammunition for Jarad later on, Dryad Arbor and Green Sun's Zenith work well for either early ramp or to pull out another creature that fit the situation, Dakmor Salvage since it was dredge heavy and i only ran like 34 lands, and things like Boneyard Wurm that were cheap to play and were fling worthy if it got late in the game. Another fun combo is something along the lines of Blood Artist + Gravecrawler + Phyrexian Altar if you wanna go a more death trigger oriented route

I might look into some higher quality self-mill to replace the tacky stuff like Wailing Ghoul . Some of my favorites are Nyx Weaver , Animal Magnetism , and Rot Farm Skeleton . Splinterfright also self mills effectively, but he can actually be sacced to Jarad for value on top of that mill.

Instead of Naturalize , you could play Qasali Pridemage , fuels you graveyard, and generally more useful while in play. It's a lot more expensive though, but maindeck artifact/enchantment hate, should usually do something other than just killing those permanents.

Boneyard Wurm , and Splinterfright seem like a good additions, alongside Ghoultree .

I think you need something to get creatures in the yard with, though.

I think black will be better than white here. So many cards to sac, self mill and benefit from your graveyard. Without it Grapple with the Past , Mulch and Satyr Wayfinder are probably your best options for that.

Consider Cards like Nyx Weaver and Splinterfright . Both will auto-mill you, making Splinterfright more and more powerful. Nyx Weaver will allow for some recursion.
