Blighted Agent Discussion

I'm not sure this deck really wants the board sweepers especially since your commander puts shield counters on your opponent's stuff. Maybe something like Gigadrowse or Turnabout would be more synergistic.

Modern UG infect wants to play very quickly, generally aiming to win the game on turn 2 or 3. Usually, if they haven’t won by turn 4, they’ve lost.
With that in mind, you need to seriously re-adjust your mana curve. The majority of modern decks can’t justify running anything over 4cmc, and being an aggro deck, that goes doubley for your build. Ideally you should be running only cards that cost 1-2 mana, with nothing costing above this.
I think at the moment your brew is going to play too slowly and clumsily to get the job done. Imo, focus on ensuring that Blighted Agent and Glistener Elf can reliably deliver a quick 10 damage, and ditch all your other creatures (UG infect typically just runs those 2 creatures alongside Noble Hierarch and Inkmoth Nexus)

Legendary Creature - Phyrexian Wizard
If a creature an opponent controls with any -1/-1 counters on it dies, create a 1/1 Blue Phyrexian Insect creature token with Infect and 'when this creature dies Surveil 1'
It wasn't enough to simply compleat every being of flesh, she needed to perfect the process. And what better way then to have her creations observe both before and after they stung their victims.
That sat for awhile, so it you're like me and have been working at it pretty much all day between things then do another... there is a plethora of characters w/o cards in flavor text. Otherwise make an Enchantment creature w/bestow that also transforms into a Saga? Too hard? We shall see.

You seem combo hesitant, but I would still encourage you to put Sage of Hours back in. It would be excessive if you put in twenty tutors for it and tried to rush it, but sometimes the game just needs to end, and Sage is a win out of nowhere card.
Since you're running Triumph of the Hordes you are clearly not averse to infect, so I'd go ahead and put in at least Blighted Agent if not a couple of others. This can be another way to knock out a player who is about to win and turn the tide of the game. I'm also a little surprised not to see Hadana's Climb Flip, which synergizes with your deck perfectly.
Also, it is clear you are trying to focus on one-sided board wipes, so why not Ezuri's Predation? I mean, wouldn't it be wrong not to include what might be the most flavorful card for this deck?
Also, this is a bit granular, but I'd just replace Withstand Death and like cards with counterspells like the original and Arcane Denial. They can protect your commander just as well, but can also stop a lot of other problematic things.
Overall you seem to have a pretty good and synergistic list, but some of the above suggestions might help you shore it up a bit.

With how much ramp you currently have, definitely drop a few lands. Some of the new MDFC could also be an option, things like Bala Ged Recovery Flip let you get a land if needed, or that one card you really like back to your hand. Things that make tokens, such as Avenger of Zendikar and Fable of Wolf and Owl help crank up the experience counters rather quickly. Because the counters go on one creature each combat, you could consider Blade of Selves, as sticking that on something unblockable can win you the game rather quickly, especially if its on something like Blighted Agent.
In a piece of shameless self-promotion, I've linked my own Ezuri deck below. I've been playing it for a while and its one of my favorites, so you can take a look through and see if there's anything you think would fit for your deck vs me just listing it out.
It looks like a good start so far, hopefully some of this helps.

Here are some other recommendations if you like:
Big Boys that aren't Eldrazi
Deep-Sea Kraken, Ancient Stone Idol, Chancellor of the Spires, Devouring Strossus, Denizen of the Deep, Hullbreaker Horror, Icebreaker Kraken, Inkwell Leviathan, Kederekt Leviathan, Leviathan, Nezahal, Primal Tide, Tidespout Tyrant
Since ninjitsu bypasses attack triggers, then cards like Leviathan can actually be semi-viable. Good luck with the new concept, I know that I'm going to be making a ninja demon/kraken deck that should be absurd.

if you want to go a little mean, you can add things like Winter's Rest and Confiscate. orvar can copy the enchantment and when the copy enters, it can attach to any legal permanent, even creatures with hexproof or shroud. you can permanently tap down their entire board or steal all of their creatures, one by one. Eldrazi Conscription and Blighted Agent are a favorite of mine.
