Okay, y'alls ideas inspired me to to do some specific digging and I found the following cards that allow looting or dredge, but are precise as well as quick to put into action -

If Vraska's Contempt is too expensive have you considered Hour of Glory? It's super budget friendly, hits most of what you're looking remove, and sits at the same mana cost as Contempt (but is actually less of a strain on the mana base). It also has the somewhat relevant upside of sniping any additional copies of a Hazoret the Fervent or The Scarab God your opponent may have sitting in hand.
For the creature base, Tomb Robber might be an interesting inclusion since it represents the potential for repeated explore triggers. It can be a bit slow so I wouldn't recommend more than two copies. Perhaps replacing Tishana's Wayfinder?
I'd also recommend a few copies of Deadeye Tracker to your sideboard. It represents some pretty decent graveyard hate while also supporting the Explore theme.

-37 lands in a bit short for EDH : advice is 40 to avoid issue plus aprox 10 carads for card advantage. In your setup, i would recommand more creature cards that ramp lands and that you can sac like Yavimaya Elder and Wood ElvesExplore cards migth also be very usefull to pull out more lands from the deck and filling your Graveyard.Deadeye Tracker, Jadelight Ranger, Merfolk Branchwalker, Path of Discovery, Tomb Robber
Sheoldred, Whispering One & Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger : Those guys are dangerous, Not sure if your deck can manage to show them in play or in the graveyard and survive the focus tou'll get. I personally stoped playing them for this reason.
Candidate to add :
Skybind -> retrigger ETB

Murphy77 Thanks for giving me something to reference! Panharmonicon has been working wonders so I've added a couple...! I don't really like Enter the Unknown as much even though I'm lacking in 1 drops, purely because there is no real way to cast it on turn one, and it's difficult to actually get any value out of it. The added land drop is unnecessary as well, as the entire deck can run easily off of 4 lands and doesn't require any amount of ramp.
I often find myself discarding lands with Tomb Robber, and in those cases I could see Ramunap Excavator working rather well, but those are the only times I actually put lands in my graveyard, and oftentimes the boardstate makes it just as easy to explore off of something else instead.
The deck tends to brute-force overwhelm people, whether by creating several massive creatures, gaining massive amounts of life or flooding the board with creatures, sometimes all 3, so Cobbled Wings, with it's extreme lack of synergy compared to the rest of the cards, seems to be a no go with what we're trying to accomplish.
The purpose of Emperor's Vanguard would be to trigger explore regularly, but the big issue I have with it is that it can easily be chump-blocked or otherwise prevented from dealing damage, and at that point it becomes a 4/3 for 4, which is pretty bad. If you gave it wings then it might work out, but that also becomes 6-8 extra slots to achieve what Tomb Robber and Deadeye Tracker achieve easily by themselves.
Several people have suggested Animation Module, and it looks more promising when considered with Rishkar, Peema Renegade and Path of Discovery, but once again I'll have to test it out and see how it goes!

Oh my gosh! You made my favorite Ixalan draft archetype (and the only one I ever took down FNM with) into a standard deck! I did make it in standard for a bit, except it was ultra-budget. From my little experience of playing, I think I have a few suggestions.
Path of Discovery: I sort of one the game with this card and Wildgrowth Walker/Lurking Chupacabra. It combos off insanely with those cards. Although, this may screw up the curve, so don't rely on this working.
Also, I don't think Tomb Robber is very good, as you don't get any card draw effects in Golgari. I hope I was useful!

As for Tomb Robber I don't understand how that is a sac outlet, but Tomb Robber is a nice way to pitch extra lands, or copies of our legendary cards, or even Oathsworn Vampire. That is actually worth trying possibly in Live Fast place.
As for Dead Man's Chest That is an interesting one as well that would need some testing. I'm about to change around some of the cards with your idea's and see how it looks.
