I would swap Coldsteel Heart out for Arcum's Astrolabe to help with the fixing, then get rid of both of your two color snow lands for cheap you could get Game Trail and Foreboding Ruins which will get you the right mana on time, hopefully. On a similar note, you might consider Evolving Wilds or Terramorphic Expanse for lands as once in the graveyard they can help you cast Tombstalker . I also think your deck should be called "More for Less" which would make more sense for the theme you're going after.

What's your opinion on Nemesis of Mortals vs Tombstalker ?

It doesn't have flying, but it can self-pump to a 10/10. It doesn't exile cards from your graveyard, but it needs a specific card type in the graveyard. Would it be worth testing?

With Faithless Looting (alongside Hogaak) banned, a Golgari shell might well be the best way to approach graveyard decks. However as someone who played Hogaak and before that Hollow One (with the Vengevines) in modern I'd say your missing a payoff creature. The problem with Vengevine is it dies and is exiled to Anger of the Gods which is a pretty common sweeper. You really want one of the bigger delve beaters here; Tombstalker Hooting Mandrills Gurmag Angler Necropolis Fiend Tasigur, the Golden Fang Become Immense or with perhaps a little work Soulflayer

My plan has been to try Tombstalker, I'm not sure it's good enough and unlike Hogaak can't be recurred, the other option that might work in a Vengevine shell, if you want the blue splash is Skaab Ruinator which is both a zombie and a horror, which might still be relevant... The deck list I'm working on is Ode to Hogaak if you fancy a look.

If you are looking for more looting effects, there is Burning Inquiry which does have the downside of helping your opponent, but it also gets you farther and makes it more reliable.

Tombstalker is another good delve card, it is an extra black in comparison to Gurmag Angler but it is flying which can be a big deal.

I really like this deck, it is cool and is creative.

PlatinumOne is trying to change your deck from Esper Control to Esper Death's Shadow. I wouldn't go down that route, as it's a totally different deck and I think Esper Charm is phenomenal in a Control build. Also Delver of Secrets  Flip is bad in Modern because it's so fragile, so I don't know he would suggest that.

If you find that you want more win conditions, there's plenty you can build into Control without changing the entire archetype. More Snaps, Vendilion Clique , Creeping Tar Pit , Gideon, Ally of Zendikar , Elspeth, Sun's Champion , Torrential Gearhulk , Tombstalker , Necropolis Fiend , and Tasigur, the Golden Fang are all good options.

I think you would like Tombstalker over gumag angler. Mono-Red Arclight Phoenix is pretty prevalent right now

Languish for sure. Mainboard sweepers really tank your win percentage against control and tron and those matchups will be tough to begin with. Of course by removing Languish your Spirits and Humans matchups get worse, but I don't think you'll win a game vs Tron if you draw Languish, whereas you can win vs Sprits and Humans on a good draw.

I also recently came to the conclusion that Tombstalker might be really good tech for Grixis right now. It's amazing vs Spirits and Humans because it can block flying creatures. It also blocks Arclight Phoenix .

I'm worried about over-use of your graveyard. 3 Gurmag and 1 Tasigur and a Logic Knot is a lot of dedicated delve. And without fetch lands you will struggle hard to get a big graveyard. The most expendable of these is Logic Knot .

SpectreFusion on Golgari Graveyad

Splinterfright might replace some copies of Ghoultree since it keeps building your yard and has trample. Boneyard Wurm is similar cheap alternative but lacks the extra abilities. Grim Flayer , Satyr Wayfinder , and Glowspore Shaman could also be useful. A copy or two of Vengeful Pharaoh can be a good deterrent if it fits your deck. Gnaw to the Bone might be useful against burn or aggro. Grisly Salvage puts 4 or 5 cards into the grave instead of Corpse Churn 's 2, but it has a harder casting cost and you have a smaller selection of creatures to bring back to your hand. Lastly Tombstalker might also be an interesting addition. Best of luck man.
