ThallionDarkshine on Long Live the Queen!

Two other great ways to give your deathtouchers the ability to ping things are Viridian Longbow and Thornbite Staff. The longbow is great because you don't need to pay mana to ping, while the staff untaps the creature whenever something dies, letting it machine gun down your opponent's creatures. One great card for lifegain is Vault of the Archangel. Also, in addition to giving your creatures lifelink, it also gives deathtouch, allowing you to do your pinging shenanigans if you can't find a deathtouch creature.

I feel like some of the bigger drops like Visara the Dreadful are more lended towards EDH than the fast format that is modern. And that really hurts to say since Visara is one of my favorite cards of all time, huge gorgon fan here. I would consider more artifacts and Glissa, the Traitor possibly. Deathtouchers can do work with cards like Viridian Longbow or even Sharpened Pitchfork. Although if this list is purely casual and not really meant to win, its probably fine as is. could use some 1 mana removal like Fatal Push though.

I've tried to make the Deathtouch/Viridian Longbow thing work since I started playing magic, its definitely powerful but against non-creature focused strategies it can struggle. I really like how your deck has more solid bodies than the usual 1/1 creatures ive tried in my builds (think Typhoid Rats). Personally I think green works really well with this type of deck, for stuff like Lure and Nature's Way. I would be wary of the decks in modern that don't need creatures to win (or uninteractable creatures like Slippery Bogle, and I would also be wary of decks running stuff like Ensnaring Bridge because black doesnt have many ways to deal with artifacts, and could singlehandedly stop your deck. Splashing green could give you access to stuff like Naturalize as well. Lastly I would have you consider Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx simply because of the current devotion you run.

good luck!

Just a few ideas for you:

Fang Skulkin will let your Assassins kill Indestructible creatures.

Creatures with Deathtouch can use certain equipment, like Pathway Arrows, Sorcerer's Wand, Thornbite Staff, and Viridian Longbow to insta-kill a creature just by dealing a bit of damage to it.

Also, Virtus the Veiled seems good.

Quicksilver Dagger and Viridian Longbow both make good use of Blistercoil Weirds untap ability

Hey there! I have a similar deck: Dynamite with a Laser Beam. Maybe you can get some ideas from it.

I've had a lot of fun with Warstorm Surge. It allows your assassin tokens to kill something on entry. Things like Fire Whip and Viridian Longbow turn the queen into a rattlesnake too.

I see you have a lifegain thing going on. Archangel of Thune, Cradle of Vitality, and Well of Lost Dreams might interest you.

A few thoughts to go over!

Ammit Eternal will net you snakes very quickly as your opponents cast spells. If anybody is left open, (Or you use your Whispersilk Cloak/Rogues Passage) you can extend that engine's lifespan.

Skinrender only triggers Hapatra once, but is solid removal.

Flesh-Eater Imp is a solid flying infecter that explodes a win if you have snakes to feed. Phyrexian Crusader, Phyrexian Hydra, Phyrexian Vatmother are cheap solid infect sources too. Grafted Exoskeleton and Glistening Oil turn any of your creatures into surprise infect threats. I know its not budget, but Inkmoth Nexus is going to do a LOT of work for you.

Soul Snuffers will flood your field with tokens, even if you kill your own snakes they replace themselves. Carnifex Demon works along the same line of thought.

Diabolic Intent is not a budget choice right now, but with a Battlebond release it may drop into range. Speaking of Battlebond... Generous Patron is going to make you swim in card draw.

Viridian Longbow You've never seen a snake shoot a bow, but they're deadly little archers. Thornbite Staff too.

Your land base isn't bad, but could be better in my opinion by focusing harder on Basics. In addition to making you more resilient to non basic hate/punish, two color doesn't get color starved easily. Especially if you to focus on basic ramp like Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, and other similar that search Any Basic Land. Drop the majority of your lands that enter tapped with little to no other benefit. Gaining 1 life or a 0/1 plant aren't going to win you the day, and will often slow your plan painfully. Nykthos is questionable. Being so evenly split in mana costs plus so much of the deck's presence being token based, I wonder how often it will actually run positive on devotion.
