Thanks for all the input on this deck you guys! It's an old standard deck I have been modernizing, in it's standard days I had both Go for the Throat and Victim of Night in it. Fatal Push is great even without revolting but I can revolt it by equipping Lashwrithe to any creature, killing the germ token.

Interesting build, so +1, here are my suggestions:
Most of this stuff looks like the WB control deck from standard, which is a slower format, but in modern, almost every deck is trying to kill you around turn 4, which means cards like Read the Bones, Ruinous Path, Transgress the Mind just aren't going to make the cut, if you want card draw Night's Whisper is more on curve (you lose scrying but that should be ok) Phyrexian Arena is also an option that is more dependable. While Ruinous Path, Ultimate Price, and Hero's Downfall were great in standard, 3 mana in modern should get you more, cards like Go for the Throat, Path to Exile, and Dismember are much better at dealing with creatures and are more on curve. (Also, Victim of Night kills pretty much everything in the format, so I'd play it over Grasp of Darkness. Transgress the Mind is obviously outclassed by Inqusition of Kozilek and Thoughtseize but it could probably just be 2 more Castigate, since many deck in the format like burn don't even play 3 drops.
Do you really need 26 lands? 24-25 is what most decks need to consistently play 6 drops, but that's more for you to decide. In any case, some budget duals are Isolated Chapel and Caves of Koilos, I'd probably put chapel in since you play so many basics.
This deck looks well pivoted towards beating creature based decks, but a deck like Ad Nauseeum would run right over you. I'd recommend playing 4 copies of Duress in your sideboard if you don't have inquisitions/thoughtseizes in the main.
The deck needs a sideboard plan, as mentioned above Duress seems like a good option for the deck, I'd also recommend playing Disenchant or moving some amount of Anguished Unmaking into the sideboard, since you likely wont need all of them in a game. If gravehate is needed for budget Tormod's Crypt and Nihil Spellbomb are very cheap. Extirpate can shred combo decks and couples well with discard. There are other ideas but it's all meta dependent.
While I like the idea of assembling Bruna and Gisela, I think a better plan would be to play 2 Gideon Jura, as he can fog for a turn, kill creatures, and is a finisher all by himself. Also, I think you get rid of some of your creature removal to play Lingering Souls since you are so overloaded with it and the synergy it has with cards like Sorin, Solemn Visitor is amazing. Elspeth, Knight-Errant could also be looked at as a one-of since it works with Lingering Souls and Shambling Vent.
These are my suggestions, let me know if you'd like anymore feedback.

@Illsificate Victim of Night is better than both

Yay, I love rats! I have a few critiques and suggestions.
Firstoff, having both Typhoid Rats and Ogre Slumlord seems odd. Maybe go for Gnat Miser instead? He's quite good in multiples. Second, Necrotic Plague seems like an odd choice. It's pretty flavorful, but really a quite bad card. I'd choose some more reliable generic black removal like Victim of Night or Go for the Throat instead.

Well basically, you can take this shell and add whatever creatures you want to it and it'll work. I would highly advise to keeping creatures in the 2 mana range with only a few cmc 3 or above. No matter how appealing Thragtusk looks it's typically better to stick to Kitchen Finks.
