Just came across these two cards,Death Pits of Rath and Karazikar, the Eye Tyrant. They seem to be synergistic with your general.

Yo if you can't get Zagras out or if he blows up, having stuff like Death Pits of Rath or Retreat to Hagra could make for good backup plans.

Viridian Longbow, Death Pits of Rath, Gorgon's Head, and Gorgon Flail will add a good bit of shenanigans with a side of salt =D

Love the Death Pits of Rath / Goblin Sharpshooter combo in here, what a classic! Still, the nazi-reference is way beyond being acceptable.

That's either just cheap clickbait or - even worse - a morbid trivialisation of history, especially with right-wing conservatives gaing more and more momentum all around the globe. Please just stop that, there is nothing to gain here.

Wesley as a farm boy: Diligent Farmhand. Not Modern legal, but...

Castle Ardenvale or any of the other Eldraine castles.

Unruly Mob is the mob that had to be dispersed before storming the castle.

Of course, they did have to Storm the Citadel.

Consign to the Pit (of despair). Or you could use Death Pits of Rath.

There is Quicksand in the Cinder Marsh (fire swamp). Cinder Marsh is not modern legal, so you could use Cinder Barrens or Smoldering Marsh.

The whole thing is told by a storyteller, so you could include Lagonna-Band Storyteller, which synergizes with Happily Ever After. Also, Into the Story or Tome Scour?

Perhaps True Love's Kiss?

They did fetch horses at the end: Crested Sunmare, Diamond Mare, Wandermare or Shield Mare.

I love creatures that can ping for damage, and the only thing that makes them better is giving them deathtouch so that damage is lethal.

Archetype of Finality is a bit costly, but it does remove deathtouch from your opponents' creatures which can be handy.

Ankle Shanker isn't as great, but at least it shouldn't die since you can clear all the blockers.

Death Pits of Rath can definitely backfire, but it can also cause a lot of havoc depending on the board state and what you're facing.

Shriveling Rot is just amazing. You either get deathtouch, have it and now make your opponents lose life, or entwine for both.

Vault of the Archangel is nice since it's a land and harder to get rid of. IT also gives you lifelink which can be handy (though, you won't be gaining that much life).

Vraska, Scheming Gorgon is a good way to get ganged up on. If you ever use the ult, enjoy the win, but it's also a sure fire way to make everyone target you.

Zurgo Helmsmasher is always a fun include. He may find his way in eventually but for now I've made some of the aforementioned swaps. Gonna try Daxos the Returned as you suggested griffstick as we have a few enchantments we want to come out now and if nothing else maybe he can generate some threats on board once Kelsien, the Plague starts taking critters out and generating those experience counters.

Nearly all exile effects have been removed to make way for more creature destruction specifically and I've squeezed in both Planar Void to shut down potential graveyard shenanigans as well as Death Pits of Rath to work as a pseudo deathtouch once Kelsien starts pinging creatures.

I'd also like to note that all of our instant speed removal is contains red or white and is 3 cmc or less specifically so that, should we choose to do so, we can fetch each and every one of them with Sunforger out. This adds a bit of utility and flexibility to the deck. While I do not plan to lean too heavily into the sunforger package its strength and versatility is well known so I may find the need to add more targets for it depending on how testing goes.

I appreciate all of the fantastic input guys so If there's any ideas dont hesitate to throw them my way.
