I didn't want to advertise my deck on yours, but if you get a chance I'd love your thoughts on Magus of the Crucible (HOU). And no worries at all if you can't get to it!

First off, always love to see a deck abusing The Gitrog Monster outside of Commander, but a few cards come to mind that can really up the game.
Nissa, Vital Force is an absolute powerhouse, giving herself a blocker or giving you a big attacker, has recursion, and most importantly, as more land synergy with her easy-to-achieve emblem. Seriously, on a good turn 6, you sacrifice her to get the emblem, cast The Gitrog Monster, then play two Evolving Wilds, drawing six additional cards in the turn.
Grim Flayer has the put-off of rotating in a few months, so I can see why you're reluctant to get him, but he's so expensive because he sees play in Modern, so you really don't have to worry about too much of a price dip. He basically does the same thing as Grapple with the Past, throwing lands into the graveyard to get back later and filter your deck better.
Again, like I said earlier, I love to see The Gitrog Monster decks, so +1 and can't wait to see how it does.

clayperce, first off, thanks for the comment and upvote. The Jaddi Offshoot works surprisingly well, especially considering the two additional lands I run, including the set of Evolving Wilds and the two Blighted Woodlands, so it gets an A in my opinion. Now, for your suggestions.
Hissing Quagmire is basically there in a last-resort blocking scenario, or when I need to use it to close out the game with a few other creatures. Other than those times, I basically never activate it.
Regarding the flyer hate, I really don't see that many fliers at my LGS. Honestly, the last time I think I saw a flyer was blue/white flash in Kaladesh Standard.
Blighted Fen is an interesting thought. However, there always seems to be a throw away creature on my opponent's field whenever I've tried it out in the past, so it's kind of a turn off for that reason.
