I haven't messed around with the archetype yet but I'm guessing the trick is to pick a direction and build for it's advantages.
Cards with the overgrowth keyword tend to be quite strong but only work if your graveyard is packed with creatures. I'm seeing a lot of midrange decks that jam creatures into the graveyard with Stitcher's Supplier and Glowspore Shaman in the early game and win with literally any graveyard payoff imaginable.
Wildgrowth Walker Jadelight Ranger decks are still fine and work a little better when you're priced into having payoffs that work with only 1 or 2 creatures in the yard. The advantage there is explore creatures are better as creatures but don't have the ability to self mill to quite the extreme degree as some of the new guilds of Ravnica cards to.
Working surveil in isn't that tricky. There are quite a few competitively costed cards that surveil but not that many good surveil payoffs (besides generic graveyard matters of course). I could see someone running some number of Blood Operative in sultai although I imagine the best place for it is getting incidental self mill value off of the occasional Thought Erasure or Price of Fame.

Can someone tell me what the best/only way to get an image to work in a deck description is. Please and thankyou.

This is my attempt at a more midrangy take on the archetype. A more in depth explanation will be in it's description.
I gotta say I really like the idea of this page. Fine tuning this list felt like an uphill battle and it would have been really great to have had something like this forum except with a bunch of decks to use as a reference and hear some discussion.

No offense to any of the creators but being popular doesn't imply these decks will be representative of the meta moving forward.
The good people of Cockatrice have been playtesting the new standard for over a week now and I'm seeing a lot of:
The Flame of Keld burn
stompy (pretty much vomitpile's list exactly)
esper/jeskai/bant(nexus)/grixis control (hard to tell which is best at this point)
and a whole lot of mad lads on controlish oops 20 you in one turn spellslinger stuff
Not saying this is any better but heck it's a comment of course it's just my opinion.
