we can't help you with your deck unless we know what is your budget, what is played at your local meta, and what type of deck do you want this to be as it seems right now it is a bad aggro deck and with no recursion from Gravecrawler you are easily taken out by a well timed Supreme Verdict /Terminus you can protect yourself from the first with Golgari Charm but currently you have nothing to stop the later. Without a way to win past the early game your deck will fall in the mid and more so in the late game. your deck hates to see turn 6 but you will see that most of the time with Thragtusk , Centaur Healer , and card:Sphinx's Revelation all stalling for the late game but at the same time you deck hates to play against other aggro decks because they are faster then yours and can survive the mid game when you can't handle a Bonfire of the Damned /Mizzium Mortars so give me a list of your concerns and all info already listed above and any other info you think might help and I can give you more advise to your deck and what to look out for. also I need to know previous play experience because even if you net deck a top 8 deck doesn't mean you know how to play it and how to play against other decks which is even more important then getting the right cards for your deck.

I got most of the cards in the mainboard and my bugdet is undecided, i would guess to get the last of my cards about 100-200$
What's played at my locale place i'm really not sure, for all i know people can bring anything from red aggro to reanimation decks.
I'm working on making the deck into a green/black aggro where i aim to win in turn 6/7
From what you already mention my biggest concerns are mass removable or high lifegain that buys my opponent enough time to stabilize the board.
I've played the game years ago but had a long brake. I started up again about 4+ months ago, been playing active 2+ times a week, going to nearly all the drafts i could and one modern tournament where i borrowed a storm deck. Played some online to but not a big fan of it.
And reading about magic now and then to try and soak up some more experience.
Won't say im a magic pro yet, but definitive over the newb phase

Should probably add another land or two. Your curve is pretty demanding.

This looks really good, but you may want a few more warm bodies in the mainboard (well, I guess zombies are cold, but anyway...)
Farseek ramping to Wolfir Silverheart is good, but other than him it's going to be more land than you need (esp. with four Arbor Elf --he's your main acceleration and lets you cast three-drops turn two). I'd consider replacing Farseeks with Tormented Soul . So many options: Rancor it, pair it w/Silverheart, salvage a Dreg Mangler on it, Giant Growth it. And they can't block it!

The low land count is a test that i'm doing, i used to have 23-24 land in it and i have no ide how many times i had way to much land in play after R4-5. The deck is not completely done yet so the land will most likely need to be adjusted if i get screwed over and over again.

that's good to hear that you aren't new to this. For you to be able to improve the deck and make a sideboard you need to know what your playing against and what your deck's favorable and unfavorable matchups are here is a list of all the decks played at the recent starcitygames open series.
this will tell you what is good and what is played in today's standard and you can go over the deck lists and see what your deck's favorable and unfavorable matchups are and how to sideboard against them. luckily there was a B/G aggro deck that placed 8th so check that build and adjust your own accordingly and see how they stack up to each other. hope all this helps and let me know how you do in the tourney.

SwiftDeathThe deck that placed 8th looks interesting, will have to look over the decks there to se if theres anything special i need to be on the lookout for.
Got around a week now to make this deck ready for the big day so hoppfully i'll get the cards i need traded.
MinscAndBooI'm considering a few bigger drop, and also the garuk for card draw to make sure i won't get stuck on lots of land and nothing to use it on.
When it comes to the Tormented Soul i'm not the biggest fan of it, yes it is unblockable but it can be removed early cause of the low toughness, but might check it out and play test with it to se how it works out.
I did actually win a draft using Tormented Soul always fun when the opponent don't have enough removable and you pump it up, just not sure how it will work out in a tournament

Might see if you can find a slot for Predator Ooze . I've played a similar deck and every time that critter hits the board, it makes the opponent's sphincter crinkle....just a thought.

Thanks for all the feedback!
The deck is finally updated after a small brake, would love some feedback and your thoughts on the changes i've done
In my last tournament i finished off at fourth, unfortunate for me my mana curve got changed after i didnt the last cards i need, not saying that cost me the first place but it definitive didn't help my deck out.
