Looks like a fun list! I have a Chainer deck on my profile if you wanna check it out. I've been playing him for a few years now, but I'm still working out some of the pending changes to my list.
Card draw to consider: Night's Whisper is a second sign in blood, and worth running as efficient card draw. Ransack the Lab has also felt really good. Treacherous Blessing has been worth the life loss (almost) every time I play it. Syphon Mind is decent, too. I also am not a fan of Reliquary Tower because usually you want to be discarding down to hand size to drop reanimation targets in the GY. I'd look at Castle Locthwain or basic swamp in its place.
Ramp: Dark Ritual is a classic and probably worth running. Myriad Landscape is slow, but generally has pleased me when I see it. Nirkana Revenant is another source of big B mana. Expensive to cast, but cheap if you are reanimating it. Expedition Map gets you Cabal Coffers or Urborg.
Finally, I'm not sure that Liliana, Untouched by Death is pulling her weight here. Hope that is helpful :)

Looks like an interesting deck.
It's very rare to see Scale the Heights getting any play, but if you really like it then you should more than just 23 lands, especially if you run Felidar Retreat as well. Having 4 Fabled Passage is pretty much a must to get the most out of your Felidar Retreat too. If you're not sure what to cut, I would recommend running only 2 Snakeskin Veil instead. It's not a bad card, but it's usually side-board material because unless you have the perfect opportunity to use it, it's very underwhelming. You never want 2 or 3 of those sitting in your hand taxing your mana while you wait for a good time to use them either.

Strange, I would think people would love to tutor their wincons with Maralen of the Mornsong and then kill her!

Necroblossom Snarl doesn't affect anything. You still have an equal amount of green and black sources, but a good few more pips of green in your card costs than black. You need more green sources than black sources. Also, since your mana is a bit too easy right now, you should add functional lands like Castle Locthwain .

Hi Nerdytimesorwhatever, thank you for your kind words. Our playgroup is really happy with the houserule and it works like a charm! I even notice that people outside our crew noticed our house policy and show interest. The pool of cards is still immense, so I hear zero complaints from other players here.
You are totally right about the absurd powercreep. I feel magic is starting to lose the magical vibe that it long had when new sets came out. Now I feel overwhelmed by looking at what we are being flooded with. The desire for spoilers is also totally gone here...
As a little sidestep, we went a little nostalgic and created an interesting EDH format for nostalgic sake: Old School '99 EDH
Trying to combine the great format that EDH is with the nostalgic feel of the older cards. The rules are simple and can be found on both decks I created for our format. We really had a blast playing this; less combo and more vanilla style.
See these decks to give you an idea:

Last note regarding this deck. I added Castle Locthwain . A swamp has been cut for it.
