Vhati il-Dal Discussion

Vhati il-Dal works nicely with -1/-1 counters.
Pharika, God of Affliction also does what you wanna do.
Beastmaster Ascension make your snakes into big scary snakes.
Doubling Season if money is no concern.
Infect creatures would also work great here especially Necroskitter. It may lead to hate but your horde of 1/1 D/T snake tokens should suffice as adequate chump blockers and/or deterrents.

And finally, Vhati il-Dal's days are numbered.

You can't go wrong with Ghave, Guru of Spores at the helm. He's good for +1/+1 shenanigans and within your budget. As to the -1/-1 counters if you're looking to do this in the same deck then toss in a Vhati il-Dal. If you're looking to make the -1/-1 thematic a different deck then Vhati il-Dal should be at the helm.

That Archfiend is screaming to be slapped into every Vhati il-Dal deck ever.

Interesting, I like your budget approach...but trying to keep cards under 30 cents is tough haha. Also, I think this deck may struggle to do enough damage in a commander game as ping effects generally don't do much in the format unless Vhati il-Dal is involved.
However, here are some suggestions I found. Stab Wound would be a good additional creature shrinker (for later ping-ing) and incremental life loss.
Since you run a lot of enchantments which punish opponents for blocking, the "Provoke" mechanic may interest you. Cards like Crested Craghorn or Goblin Grappler are options if you can keep them alive (sadly provoke is mainly a green mechanic). Breaker of Armies and Nemesis Mask also have similar effects.
Or you could look for further tap/untap permanents type cards. Endbringer is an option though it would require some more colorless mana (Wastes are cheap), it also is 50 cents. Goblin Archaeologist could provide more artifact removal. Puppet Strings will alow you to tap or untap at will.
I think your deck may want some sort of reanimation to it as that is what black does best, and I suspect your little guys will die rather frequently. Phyrexian Reclamation would be a nice addition to provide a pit of reanimation though it is 50 cents. Betrayal of Flesh doubles as removal and reanimation at instant speed.
Curse of Death's Hold would make pinging stuff to death easier, but again, it is 50 cents.

Looks like a nice theme deck for Vhati il-Dal. With Horobi, Death's Wail on the board and Vhati equipped with Thornbite Staff, you essentially have a total board wipe! This looks like a lot of fun to play, so I might put this together eventually.
