Do you want big graveyard or small graveyard in the cube at http://www.cubetutor.com/user/Swagilicious

big graveyard: Putrid Imp, Stitch Together, Boneyard Wurm, Grizzly Fate, Werebear, Centaur Chieftain, Metamorphic Wurm, Treacherous Vampire, Nemesis of Mortals, Tooth Collector, Moldgraf Scavenger, Obsessive Skinner, Undergrowth Scavenger, Nezumi Graverobber, plus a lot of recursion

Small graveyard: Gurmag Angler, Hooting Mandrills, Necrogenesis, Murderous Cut, Sultai Scavenger, Psychatog

All in all it's better to either use the graveyard or let it sit there to avoid nonbos

Would Undergrowth Scavenger work at all in there?

Ok, I see a few ways this could turn into a solid teir 2.5 modern deck: a saproling/fungus or eldrazi(Kozilek's Predator/Nest Invader swarm running stuff like Obelisk of Urd,

A Cryptolith Rite/Life and Limb/Utopia Mycon/Psychotrope Thallid/Vitaspore Thallid type 'I play my library through mana/sacrifice combo shenanigains,

A Bloodbriar/Tukatongue Thallid/Rot Shambler/Emrakul's Evangel beatdown/sacrifice/bulk up build with a bunch of token producing critters, sac outlets, and stuff that gets bigger when you sac stuff.

Sakura-Tribe Elder and Utopia Mycon could also assist a ramp style sacrifice deck.

Theres also the possibility of an Eldritch Evolution/emerge combo deck running creatures like Root-Kin Ally/Tangle Golem for a cheap Decimator of the Provinces Mockery of Nature and convoke token generators like Scatter the Seeds or similar.

A 'stall for big spells' is also a thing- Thelonite Hermit doesn't use the stack for morph, so running a control setup aiming to get him morphed on the battlefield with Aspect of Mongoose on him is possible.

Fog/Blunt the Assault/Brindle Boar/Gristleback etc to stall to midgame then cast some high value eldrazi or beating down with Moldgraf Scavenger/Undergrowth Scavenger and similar delirum will work. Harrow will help a lot with this.

Splashing blue could allow for Prophet of Kruphix shenanigans, and that blue/green return to hand emerge eldrazi, along with combo options.

Splashing black could also allow Distended Mindbender and Nezumi Bone-Reader for hand control.

If you decide the archetype you want to play (aggro, midrange, control) I'll try to come up with cards to help support it. Building something strong normally involves emphasising its strengths as much as possible- meaning some cards get silly expensive, but cheaper cards with synergy to almost match them exist. Good luck and happy brewing.

Oh boy frogkill45, I do enjoy both those cards, but Undergrowth Scavenger and Nemesis of Mortals don't have have any evasion like trample or flying or anything to prevent chump blocks. It's the same reason I'm not running Boneyard Wurm or Ghoultree. I can see the argument for the scavenger, but if the opponent's gravehate wins out, then the typical choice of action is to sub out the aggro and sub in an opponent mill strat from the sideboard which, admittedly, needs some tweaking but it can be pretty brutal.
