Don't worry about it man. This is my life until I get off doing the damn truck. Should be within the next couple weeks.
I believe you should take out all of your counterspells. You only play 4 (Counterspell, Mystic Snake, Plasm Capture, Fuel for the Cause) which in EDH isn't really anything. If you're going to go for that kind of control route you should be making it an entire them in your deck, not just four cards.
I understand the reason behind Scavenging Ooze, but I don't think he's as efficient in EDH, plus you have plenty of better creatures you could use.
Thrummingbird seriously seemed out of place here being that you have no way to give infect to your opponent. I think you'd rather give your counters to a better creature that would have trample or something to that effect.
Inexorable Tide, and most of the cards with proliferate, all seem somewhat out of place. Proliferate only gives ONE extra counter, and while this is the one that is better than the rest, I just don't think you need it with all the counters you can give your creatures with other effects. Other cards with proliferate I think that would be worth taking out are Contagion Clasp and Contagion Engine. I agree they are cool cards, but they don't continuously put -1/-1 counters on the creatures. Once they die all they do is proliferate.
Urban Evolution, while it is good, seems a little expensive for what it does. In these colors you definitely have better draw spells, plus Exploration, Burgeoning, Azusa, Lost but Seeking, and Oracle of Mul Daya for extra land drops. These are the one I can think of that are continuous and less CMC.
Trygon Predator I believe is underwhelming as well. In your colors you have Back to Nature, Creeping Corrosion, and less mana Nature's Lore, and Naturalize, ect. Granted he is continuous, but I just don't see you being excited about drawing him.
Cytoplast Root-Kin is just another creature to move counters. I'm not sure you need ANOTHER one with the, 1...2...3...crap ton that you already have.
Those are 14 cards I believe you should take out. Even if any of these you absolutely believe you should have in, I would still take these out to be at 100, then decide what else to take out for whatever card mentioned that you absolutely believe you should have. These are my suggestions for you man.

It looks like you are trying to do RUG Delver without the expensive stuff, which is fine, but you are running lots of suboptimal choices.
I mean the Green might as well not be there.
Drop down to 4 Mongoose, 4 delver and add in 4 Werebear or Delve-apes.
Cut down on the duals to like 3 steam vents, 3 pool. Up fetches, run maybe 2 basics. Helps turn on spells faster.
Get wastelands, that helps so much. lets you run on a low mana count.

amazingdan Affinity is a rough matchup if they can vomit their hand onto the field fast enough. This deck can usually hold out for a while if it gets an Isochron Scepter early to exile one of the artifact removals since Liquimetal Coating becomes almost irrelevant. The savior of the early game against aggressive artifact decks however, is usually Trygon Predator, getting out a 2/3 body with flying that will allow you to block chumps and remove big threats like Cranial Plating with its ability. The biggest problem this deck has against affinity is when your only artifact removal is Trygon and they have a big single threat on the board, but you can't get past a number of Vault Skirges blocking your way. As long as Viridian Revel gets on the board early enough for you to have a good card lead over your opponent, you should be fine. That being said, there are a few strange affinity decks and the like that can throw this deck off, but assuming you have the same skill level as your opponent, don't get screwed or flooded, you should have a fair chance.

BUG Still is brutal. Have you thought to run a singleton Trygon Predator

And I wouldn't play Masterwork of Ingenuity. You do not have enough equipments for this card in your deck.
For a more aggro-variant of the deck check my Rafiq Aggro EDH 1vs1 Competitive (with Guide).

Zacoly: Thanks for the comment! In the order that you bring things up:
Jodah's Avenger: This is in there mostly for the combo with Necrotic Ooze, yes. I can stick Nighthowler on it to swing for lethal as well, though. It's one of the weaker cards, but I'm fond of it. I'd be amenable to cutting it if a better option is found.
Re:Shambling Shell - honestly, don't knock it 'til you've tried it :) It looks really underwhelming on paper, but given that it's cheap, dredges, and easily returns to your GY to dredge again, I'd want to draw it over some of the most powerful options in the deck. Surprising to me too, haha!
Daring Apprentice: I avoid countermagic on principle unless 100% necessary, and he has summoning sickness. I'll pass for now.
Trygon Predator is great, agreed. The only issue is that I rarely attack, and there are usually fliers about to block in my meta.
Psychic Spiral: I don't want to lose my accumulated graveyard, and I could rarely kill someone with this card. Plus, I'd often give other GY-focused decks a huge boost by milling them.
Thanks for the comment and well-wishes, again! I don't see your +1, but the site's been glitchy recently; it may just have not come through yet.

Hi! I'm responding to your post on the Advertise your deck forum
First off things to remove:
Shambling Shell is not very impressive.
Cards to add:
Dawntreader Elk = Very cheap ramp on a creature
Daring Apprentice = a very irritating creature to reanimate
Trygon Predator is not overpowered but certainly worth looking at, in most EDH games he will have targets
Psychic Spiral How did you forget this? Granted it can only be cast one time, MAYBE twice in a game, but it hits like a truck!
Good luck! and +1

Doublepost is fine. I haven't really tested zegana against sen trips yet. I could see it being a problematic matchup though unless you hate the triplets off the board with Trygon Predator or something.
