Moved the 4 Typhoid Rats and Drainpipe Vermin to sideboard. Added 2 Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx I got from a fat pack. -- Added 4x Gray Merchant of Asphodel . Played a lot better with these in here. With the devotion growing from Relentless Rats due to Thrumming Stone , it's able to do a lot of damage. -- I have Crypt Rats and Whip of Erebos and Swarmyard s on the way. We'll see how it changes once those arrive.
As somebody who loves Quicksilver Amulet combos, the following are pretty much nessecary in this deck:
At least 2x Progenitus . Protection from everything will make them cry.
At least 1 Avacyn, Angel of Hope . All your stuff is indestructible is a game winner.
You should put in at least 2 Typhoid Rats , your opponents will really not like attacking you.
Make a sideboard. Decks need sideboards. Only suggestion for it off the top of my head is Iona, Shield of Emeria for mono colored decks.
Thanks xantos that is the really the idea of this deck. The removal is a very good suggestion but the reason why I sacrificed it was for pure board presence because if my opponent is playing creatures as well than I think I can out race him. If they are playing removal then I just need to hope I can outjam their counter spells and removal. Also, I don't need worry about planeswalkers like Elspeth, Sun's Champion because most of my creatures having flying and by the time they get it out my board should be in a pretty good spot. I plan on keeping this deck standard but Typhoid Rats would be a good suggestion if I play it casually with friends.
Correct me if I'm wrong but this looks a lot like a deck that used to be Standard, then rotated out so you made it Modern. Which is a great thing to do, but now you have a lot of cards in here from recent blocks that simply aren't as good as the other possibilities available in Modern. For example, here are some replacements I think you should make:
Lastly, I'm really not loving Runechanter's Pike as a win con, I think it falls really flat with only 15 instants/sorceries in the deck. In my opinion you'd be much better off with some Swords. Allow me to suggest Sword of Light and Shadow , in your deck I like it because you can recur your cheaply-costed creatures like Typhoid Rats with ease, and the life gain will be nice against aggro decks that hit you hard in the early game. Of course, the other swords are all great too, and doing a 1-1 split might be fun, so I'll let you look over them yourself and make a decision.
Lastly, your sideboard could use some help too:
There are probably other worthy replacements too, for example Sever the Bloodline isn't really modern-playable in my opinion, but I don't know much when it comes to black sideboards.
Hope I helped!
This deck was fun to play against. You won 2/1 against Smack Your Deck Up! Game one I milled you out by turn 9 with 6 life remaining. Game two You won on T8 with a Typhoid Rats with a Runechanter's Pike attached after having busted me up with it the on T7 on a Vampire Nighthawk even though i managed to get rid of him it was game over the next turn as you had PLENTY in your graveyard from my milling. Game three i got land screwed drew up three islands and decided to roll with and never saw a swamp. T8 a Vampire Nighthawk and Desecration Demon wrapped it up. kinda getting down on my Modern deck right now its 0 and 2 already.

...and of course my all time favorite card Sheoldred, Whispering One
Try and look for tutors like Vampiric Tutor or so you can get the cards you need. You need a few of them. You need lots of card that let you draw like Phyrexian Arena etc. You could run some recursion like Reanimate because it can lend a lot of flexibility and help with Enter The Battlefield effects. You need creatures that actually do things and have interesting effects. Remember that EDH is a primarily slow format - Typhoid Rats and Thrill-Kill Assassin are probably not going to make a massive impact on the game at all.
You could maybe cut back on the amount of spot removal and up the amount of board wipes to around 5-10.
