Tasigur, the Golden Fang Discussion

So I've been trying to brew a deck around Elder Deep-Fiend in Modern, and I've come up with three main ideas. Which do you think would be the best / most fun?
I'm not looking for or expecting a competitive deck, and yes, I know that Bant Eldrazi is a thing in Modern, but for some reason, it's just not a deck I want to build. In any case, here goes!
Eldrazi Affinity. Turn 2 Frogmite into turn 3 Elder Deep-Fiend seems strong. The main issue of this version is that running the Fiend would take away from the "main" strategy of a typical Affinity deck.
U/W Control. Just playing Elder Deep-Fiend on curve T4 can be good, sacrificing something like Blade Splicer. The main drawback of this version is that the deck already has great 4-CMC cards in Restoration Angel and Cryptic Command.
So, that's what I've got. Any suggestions or other ideas for decks?

You really need fetch lands.
There are much better counter spells than things like negate. Spell Snare, Spell Pierce, Dispel, Second Guess come to mind. I feel like there's more ramp you could include if you wanna play early 8 mana spells. There are also other walkers that are solid here. Liliana of the Veil, Liliana, the Last Hope, insert whatever Jace here. There are a few ok Chandras. Tamiyo works too, Sorin Markov.
run 4 lightning bolts btw. Just do it, you'll thank me. Also consider the new Fatal Push.

I remember trying so hard to build Sultai Midrange/Control with Grim Flayer as a Tarmogoyf replacement back in the day. The thing is, it's so hard to grab Delirium quickly in a deck that has so few card types, and playing Tasigur, the Golden Fang alongside the Flayer makes for some really awkward times. Nevertheless, I have a few suggestions that may or may not sit well with you depending on your style of play and funds.
Mishra's Bauble is invaluable for a deck like this. Alongside a fetch, it essentially says "Scry 1, draw 1." It also can give you information as to what is on your opponent's library, which is understandably less valuable since you have Thoughtseize and Inquisition of Kozilek. It's also an artifact that puts itself into the graveyard for free and replaces itself, which is crazy good for turning on Delirium. Downside is, obviously, the hefty pricetag.
Courser of Kruphix gains you life, gives you lands, is a great blocker, and works very well with fetchlands. He's also an enchantment, which works for Delirium. Downside is that investing three mana into a creature on turn 3 is probably not what you want to be doing, especially if that creature becomes a target for the cheap removal spells that permeate Modern.
Garruk Relentless Flip is a green, 4 mana Lightning Bolt with upside if he sticks. While he's certainly not the best card in Modern I think he works well in this deck, as he usually puts himself in the graveyard along with an opposing creature. Downside is investing the mana into a Planeswalker that possibly just does nothing is quite bad.

Sultai Delver is powerful and fun. I like this. I do have one recommendation though--removing Dark Confidant entirely. This is not to sound condescending, but to just give advice on my own experience, so please take in what I have to "report". The interaction between Tasigur, the Golden Fang, Hooting Mandrills, and Dark Confidant can and will end your potentially winning games at times. For sake of argument--I do see you are running 2x of and that isnt as bad as the full 4x, but still adds unnecessary "Nonbos" to the deck. The 2x extra cards could make for some power cards too.
Anyhow, just my 2 cents. +1 and have a blast finding your best 75, for your meta.

Also, is Gurmag Angler better than a 3rd copy of Tasigur, the Golden Fang ?
Avoiding duplicate legends and having a 5-power creature seems good but it is also more difficult to cast early and reduces the chance of drawing the Tasigur.
