Creature — Human Warrior
Whenever Grim Flayer deals combat damage to a player, look at the top three cards of your library. Put any number of them into your graveyard and the rest back on top of your library in any order.
Delirium - Grim Flayer gets +2/+2 as long as there are four or more card types among cards in your graveyard.

I love it! I made a deck because I saw this one. It's been fun to play so far. Grim Flayer is the MVP

sixteenbiticon A quick update to my last comment - also, do keep in mind this list is tuned to a $100-budget playlist. At my table, there aren't many lists that can do significant damage in the first few turns, and the ones that can usually become the focus of the table to respond to, letting me ramp and drop some of my 3-4 drop creatures without much of an issue. If your table has a higher budget or simply faster decks, you can definitely lower the CMC to speed yourself up and provide yourself some extra cushion early on. Some early creatures I'd suggest for a lower CMC list (that won't destroy your budget):
Grim Flayer - Good early blocker that evens out your draws and gets bigger later.
Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons - A card I'm always on the precipice of including, a 2-drop that will weaken or kill your opponents early creatures and provide you with deathtouch blockers is extremely good.
Mindblade Render - It's a 1/3 that draws you cards for 2 mana. Nothing not to like.
Varragoth, Bloodsky Sire - an early deathtouch blocker that can let you tutor for cards if you start getting hits in.
Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin - A card that routinely pops up in this list when Varchild gets a bit too pricey for the budget. An early card that can start building up a host of tokens to help you block.
Virtus the Veiled - Deathtouch blocker that is absolutely disgusting early in the game. I don't use him specifically because my playgroup already hates me enough for playing Spawnwrithe.
Dreamstealer - A chump blocker if you drop him for 3, but get that Eternalize off in a post-Thantis field and oh boy.
Azra Oddsmaker - Probably the weakest suggestion here, but figured I'd include it anyways. Her trigger is pretty consistent to hit in this list with Thantis out, but she's hit-or-miss before that.

thanks ! My testing has definitely shown that there's not enough graveyard support to warrant playing 4x Murktide Regent. In an ideal world, Murktide Regent is meant to be a finisher that comes down backed up by Counterspell or Force of Negation. Grim Flayer and Jace, Vryn's Prodigy Flip are meant to be tempo plays that help fill the graveyard in the early to mid game. I think Grim Flayer is very vulnerable to Lightning Bolt and Unholy Heat. I am enjoying this deck, but I feel like I need to pick a direction, either focusing on early game with Delver of Secrets Flip or mid game tempo with planeswalkers like Liliana of the Veil and Jace, the Mind Sculptor.

Cool deck! +1
I think if you're playing Murktide Regent then you don't want Grim Flayer. They have different graveyard requirements that don't seem like they mesh well. Have you seen this at all with testing?

From a competitive modern perspective, i’m surprised the following cards don’t get more love/hype:

I'm not sure what your budget is or what exact suggestions you're looking for but here's my feedback. I'm going to write these suggestions assuming you already have an idea of what the "optimal" Jund list looks like. There won't be any of those cards on this list because I assume you already know about them but are unable/unwilling to afford them. Overall I like your budget take on Jund but there's a lot of room to upgrade this, even on a budget.
Cards to look into:
Bloodbraid Elf is a two for one on a 3/2 hasty body
Unearth brings back a lot of your stuff
Grim Flayer and Dragon's Rage Channeler are good aggressive creatures with upsides and synergy. You might have to jam in a few artifacts or enchantments to help hit delirium though, that or self-mill outlets like Satyr Wayfinder or Stitcher's Supplier. I imagine you'd easily hit creature/sorcery/instant, getting lands into your yard might be cumbersome without fetches though.
Witherbloom Command could help you hit land drops and enable delirium, if you want to go that route. It also does a bunch of other things.
Goblin Rabblemaster is a powerhouse
Fulminator Mage is good utility, at least worthwhile as sideboard option against Tron
Olivia Voldaren and Reaper of the Wilds aren't all that impressive to me, same with Dreg Mangler. These cards feel like filler for this deck. I don't really like Huntmaster of the Fells Flip either but it's better than the other three cards.
Kitchen Finks seems more like a SB card to me against burn or aggro matchups, though it's not the worst thing ever MB
Birds of Paradise doesn't really belong in a deck like this. It's not the worst choice but I'd rather be using a discard spell or holding up mana for a Bolt or something T1 than play a Bird.
I'm sure you know this, but that mana base is really sub-optimal. You might see the biggest difference in upgrading that first.
4x Dismember? What for? You already have tons of spot removal in the MB.
Drown in Sorrow is meh to me; I'm not so sure you need board wipe in your SB with all the spot removal and creatures you're running. I personally think you have better options for board wipe anyway: Bontu's Last Reckoning, Anger of the Gods and Kozilek's Return seem stronger to me. Damnation would be the best boardwipe but it is pricey. I would only run 1-2 of any of these.
Duress isn't the best SB slot. You could probably put this in the MB or just go for Inquisition as noted earlier.
Rakdos Charm is ok, you run 4 Scoozes in the MB so you're already decent against graveyard decks.

Some cards to consider running as playsets:
- Lightning Bolt
- Fatal Push
- Abrupt Decay
- Grim Flayer
- Dark Confidant
- Dauthi Voidwalker
- Inquisition of Kozilek
- Bloodbraid Elf
Some cards that are decent, but probably better as 3-ofs (as drawing multiples can hurt)

I love the art that sparks weird f**ked-up banter, an bought people into conversation, and none has done better than my glove-sniffing compadre Grim Flayer
