Very nice deck, I like it. Some cards that might interest you:Empty the Pits, Wonder, Endless Obedience, Satyr Wayfinder, Prized Amalgam, Splinterfright, Nyx Weaver, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Yavimaya Elder, Splendid Reclamation. Always remember to keep the creature count fairly high, so that sidisi can reliably produce Tokens. Also, you should probably try to upgrade your manabase, get some painlands/scrylands/Opulent Palace in there.

I made a similar deck too with black. I tried to use the least amount of non-creautre cards in it. Dryad Arbor is great if you mill yourself because it will count as a creature in the yard too. Grisly Salvage was awesome as well. With Splinterfright, Boneyard Wurm and Liliana's Elite it becomes a giant growth combat trick (my deck only had around 22 non creature cards).
Your mono green deck is pretty cool as well. If you ever want a new version, try to look into black or blue.
I do like your inclusion of Splendid Reclamation in the Deck. Great idea to use the lands that end up in your graveyard. But I would try to find a creature that does something similar. Maybe Life from the Loam could be interesting for its dredge ability. Ramunap Excavator could be good as well as it counts as a creature if it ends up in the yard.
For trample I had Brawn.
As my finisher I used Kessig Cagebreakers. If it could survive one turn the enemy was dead.I have a long list of cards in my maybeboard in my deck that you might want to check out.
In my playgroup we usually play multiplayer and don't bother with sideboards but Witchbane Orb was good for some graveyard hate, as it makes target player exiles his or her graveyard impossible. But unfortunately it is not a creature. Sylvok Replica and Ainok Survivalist deal with artifacts that hate on your yard that can be responded to. Well enjoy your deck, I had a blast playing with the Splinterfright idea, so I think you will too!

It looks like this deck was built from a limited collection of cards. While not an invalid strategy, you'll probably have more success by brewing a prototype here and purchasing the singles. If your expectations aren't too high, it's pretty easy to make a solid deck on a budget. To start with, I'd identify what cards, abilities, or strategies you like in green/blue and focus in one 1 or 2. Then, search around to see if anyone else has built decks with similar ideas. This may give you some inspiration for what cards and combos you want to build around. Just from what you have here, I see some paths you could take. Satyr Wayfinder and Tome Scour could be in a graveyard focused deck with cards like Splinterfright and Mindshrieker. Axebane Guardian and Crush of Tentacles could be in a ramp control deck with cards like Kruphix, God of Horizons and Plasm Capture. Setessan Oathsworn and Stratus Walk could be in U/G heroic with cards like Battlefield Thaumaturge and Solidarity of Heroes. All of that is just scratching the surface though. With some exploration, you should be able to find an archetype that fits your style. Then, you can get to adding the meat of the deck.

For cutting, I have two suggestions. One, this may be a bit risky, but you could take out the liliana. I know it's really great when she flips, but because she is a one-of, you either don't get her into your hand or it ends up getting milled. Second, you could take out the Renowned Weavers. She is a really good combat trick, but I feel as if she would be better in a more mid-range deck. This deck is very aggro, and has no problem getting there fast, so I personally feel as if she is not really fulfilling her full potential in this deck.
Also, you were concerned about not having a pump spell. Most of the time, the Fauna Shaman can tutor out the Nighthowler? So throughout the game, you would either have a pump spell or the fauna shaman to tutor out that pump spell, increasing your chances of being able to make a super strong Invisible Stalker if you get it into your hand.
The only reason I even suggested the Invisible Stalker was because of fear of someone being able to just strip all of the Splinterfrights from the deck. The game is lost right there. I know there's mill, but it's really hard to win off of that strategy if the deck is still in graveyard mode. I would feel more confident if, when Splinterfright is no longer an option, to use mill as a stall and to get out the pumped Invisible Stalker when the opponent is running out of answers. Side note, if both Splinterfright and a pumped Invisible Stalker is on the board, the opponent is basically scooping on the spot.
I really liked your deck, and I plan on making it my first real modern deck in paper. Remember how I asked for more budget options? Well, I actually went ahead and made a budget version of this deck! It would be great if you could check it out and give me some pointers; I'm not a deck building savant yet: The Fallen Are Screaming To Be More Budget!

I decided to convert my The Gitrog Monster deck after I decided that it was fun, but not what I completely wanted. I liked the self land destruction, but what I WANTED above anything else was dredge. So I added blue and decided to pick Sidisi, Brood Tyrant
Anyone have any tips? I know I need to stay on one deck, but this one I know I will. 3 color opens up so many opportunities and it has what I want (cough dredge cough). And yes I know Hermit Druid is usually a NO in Sidisi, but I picked her for her first ability and colors more than her second ability. The zombies are more... icing on the cake if you would for the more reanimator/dredge theme I'm looking for.

With a little shift in focus, you could probably turn this into a zombie list. There are a fair number of zombies that interact with the grave such as Diregraf Colossus and Gravecrawler. You'd also want some lords like Cemetery Reaper and Undead Warchief. Death Baron also synergizes with the skeletons. If you want to go all in on the Nighthowler plan, I'd recommend some way to deal direct damage in case your opponent has chump blockers. Something like Rite of Consumption might work. If you're willing to go green, Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord and Splinterfright work well with such a strategy.

Hey man don't worry about it, that's what this site is for :). Also ask the people at the stores for help, not necessarily he employees cause they might just try to sell you stuff.
I can't quite think of a cheaper Grim Flayer, it's sort of on a level of its own which I would advise getting at least one. And you don't necessarily have to get all 4 in one buy, stagnate it like I do. But creatures that just dump stuff into your graveyard would be Nyx Weaver or Splinterfright. They're both good cause nyx you can use to get back a card and splinter gets bigger by the turn and has trample. And as far as traverse, try tcgplayer.com. Lots of stores across America use the site to sell cards and they're usually cheaper than in person. Plus they're cards and can come through usps so shipping is like a dollar. I was like you when I first started, my first deck was even BG too. I went to clubs and stores to play and I got WRECKED, so I asked for help and all the people there were really nice and helpful. feel free to ask more questions if you need and I look forward to seeing how your deck plays out. And nice getting a Lord of Extinction, I've always wanted one. You should also get Rancor so you can make sure your big guys have trample

I second the Sakura-Tribe Elder recommendation. Also, if the trample of Splinterfright doesn't end up being enough, I think Key to the City might fit into your deck alright, though I am not experienced enough to say what should come out for it, if you do decide it deserves a slot.
