I feel like Nessian Asp is a too slow for what you're trying to do. Instead, you might want to consider Nemesis of Mortals. It can become a giant creature for the possibility of being low. And instead of Time to Feed, how about Warriors' Lesson? Instant speed is very useful and gives you cards.

As for black, I would run Sign in Blood. You can add cards like Foul-Tongue Shriek to gain your life back in a blink of an eye. You might also want to add Mardu Shadowspear. Because it doesn't need to connect to make the opponent lose life, it can help in the end.

Another great card with the life loss theme would be Spiteful Returned. You can either have it as a creature or an aura, depending on your situation. You can add Gnarled Scarhide as a quick creature to deal damage early in the game.

I was already considering a few of your green suggestions so having someone else suggest that means I'm on the right track. My first ever draft ran a more graveyard powered strategy with Hooting Mandrills but it felt too black in play style. So far my green list (in undecided quantities) looks like this

-Elvish Mystic

-Whisperer of the Wilds

-Setessan Oathsworn

-Conifer Strider

-Nessian Asp

-Stampeding Elk Herd

-Aspect of Hydra

-Epic Confrontation or Savage Punch

-Time to Feed

-Defend the Hearth

-Ordeal of Nylea

-Ranger's Guile or Mortal's Resolve

-and maybe Tread Upon if theres still room

The black suggestion are all great and I was already considering those removal cards except for Self-Inflicted Wound because these decks wont have sideboards so I can't be anti-specific colour without wasting cards. I want card draw in it, but I'm afraid Sign in Blood is a weakness when in a surprisingly fast meta between all these decks. Is there something else you could suggest?

If you wanted to add in four Sunpetal Grove to splash some white and maybe some Temple of Plenty for some scrylands, you can definitely do that. It gives you Path to Exile, Banishing Light, Prison Term, Oblivion Ring etc. I wouldn't go Time to Feed because in some situations it's not always good. You may have a bigger creature, but in an instant, the opponent can make their creature bigger than yours. That's why I would say Beast Within because it's destroy target permanent. You can literally target any permanent on the board and destroy it :) the only cost is a 3/3 beast token. So planeswalkers, lands, creatures, enchantments etc.

Time to Feed may work for removal if'n my creature is bigger than theirs. Removal wouldn't be an issue if I just added some more White stuff; I could easily add things like Journey to Nowhere, for instance. Decisions decisions.

Blizzicane on Some Lands

DERPLINGSUPREME - Overgrown Coliseum wording is fine because its a reusable version Time to Feed on a land but instead of gaining life you get mana. :)

I don't understand why everyone is so crazy about Alchemical Ruins. Sure it is a near-strictly better filter land (filter lands have more mana mixing options) but this still wouldn't really see much play outside of standard and EDH (like the originals filter lands) because fetch lands and shocks (or if legacy or EDH, ABUR duals) are all you really need. Its not like Wizards hasn't made lands that are upgraded versions of older ones before. XP

Anyways, good job on the cards! :3
