Creature — Elf Berserker
Cascade (When you cast this spell, exile cards from the top of your library until you exile a nonland card that costs less. You may cast it without paying its mana cost. Put the exiled cards on the bottom in a random order.)

I'll be honest, I don't love this deck, not as built. I get that a version of it may have done well in Standard, but I think that it would prove much too slow in the current Modern meta. I think the concept is solid enough, but I think you'd have to swap out the majority of the cards to accomplish it. Maybe consider going with a Cascade-based approach (see Bloodbraid Elf) and/or using Collected Company, depending on how you build the deck. There are tons of 3 cmc creatures out there in red and green that are plenty effective and can hit the board for you by turn 2 with ramp, catch a CoCo or cascade with a Bloodbraid.
There's a lot of other possibilities with a Gruul deck like this, but it would take some discussion to make sure they're within the framework of what you want to do.

Sheogorath and Jyggalag could be MDFC!! That'd actually make a ton of sense!
I was planning on Sheogorath being Izzet and Jyggalag being colorless, anyway.
Honestly what could be done is also the following: What if the Daedric Prince was their own card, and the Shrine was an MDFC with the Artifact on the reverse?
Come to think of it, ooo...
Okay okay hear me out
Each of the 17 Daedric Princes are MDFC
Front is their Demon God side
Reverse is a legendary land for their plane in Oblivion. So for example, Molag Bal's reverse is the legendary land of Cold Harbor, and Mehrunes Dagon's is Deadlands.
Then, you have the Shrine. The front is the Shrine itself. For example, Shrine to Hircine and Shrine to Azura.
The reverse is their respective legendary artifacts. For example, Cuirass of Savior's Hide or Star of Azura. Respectively, of course.
OH GOD HOW WOULD SOUL TRAP WORK??
Soil Gem enters the battlefield tapped unless a nontoken creature died this turn.
When Soul Gem enters the battlefield, sacrifice it unless you exile a creature card from target players graveyard.
, , sacrifice Soul Gem: Add mana in any combination of colors equal to the type and number of colored mana pips of the creature card exiled with this artifact.
So you exiled a Bloodbraid Elf? You get to add your choice of , or !! :D
What if, hear me out, Sheogorath was the Demon God on his front, but the REVERSE WAS NOT ONE BUT TWO LANDS???
Okay okay okay follow me on this
Just like the old school flip cards
Top half is
- The Shivering Isles: Mania
And the bottom half is
- The Shivering Isles: Dementia
And whenever you use one side, at the beginning of your end step, it flips to the other side. Or you flip a coin at the beginning of your upkeep when you untap it to see what side it becomes
Ooooo that's nasty

I did have BBE in some of the early versions of the deck. The main reason is that there are better 4-drops and even a 5-drop that are strong finishers. Olivia Voldaren being the best of those. Also, with Riveteers Charm in the deck, it could be a bad hit off BBE as the most common mode choice is the second one.
You could definitely tweak the list by running 3-4 copies of Bloodbraid Elf, a playset of Nissa, Voice of Zendikar as the only planeswalker in the deck (Maybe keeping a single Liliana, the Last Hope, Domri, Anarch of Bolas or even Grist, the Hunger Tide), and really focus on the +1/+1 Counters plan with Bloodhall Ooze.
As the deck is now, there are several lines to victory:
Combat damage (Most common)
Ultimate Sorin the Mirthless
Posion Counters with Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon
Endless Zombies with Liliana, the Last Hope
By cutting the 4+ MV cards for Bloodbraid Elf, the deck loses 2 win conditions. You could still run the higher MV cards, but risk cascading through them in the process.
Hope that helps a little bit. Thanks for the question!

Personally the big 3 things i'd be doing is:
raising the land count to at least 22, and also running the full playset of Noble Hierarch to give us better odds of a turn-1 play.
