Stitcher's Supplier instead of Crystalline Giant , It's cheaper to play and doesn't care about being removed, chances are you will dump something with a keyword immediately making it better.

Valentin, Dean of the Vein  Flip instead of Nullpriest of Oblivion , cheaper to play with the same keywords while also stopping creatures from staying in the graveyard and potentially making your blockers. You may even play the flip side in this deck so that's added value.

Gurmag Swiftwing is worth considering since you don't have many first strikers.

Tortured Existence is amazing in this deck especially if you decide to run cards with cycling like Pale Recluse or Archfiend of Ifnir

Unearth is just good

I just thought of something else that could lower the power of this card. Maybe just limit the acquiring of new abilities to Daraphim only and then change the power/toughness boosting ability to Creatures you control get +1/+1 for each keyword on them.

Scenario: Daraphim is on the battlefield. Cast Vampire Nighthawk Cast Gurmag Swiftwing

with new abilities: Daraphim will acquire deathtouch, lifelink, first strike, haste and get +6/+6, then Vampire Nighthawk and Gurmag Swiftwing will get +3/+3.

If the +6/+6 on Daraphim is too much, I could restrict the boosting ability to only affect other creatures (in which case it wouldn't get a boost all) or cut its power toughness boost to be half the number of keywords it has rounded down.

Hey, interesting version of Kathril and nice primer.

Fauna Shaman and Stinkweed Imp can be an engine to tutor for creatures and discard/self-mill creatures. Imp has flying keyword and dredge; Fauna is a way to get it back into your graveyard to dredge again while also tutoring for a creature. Doom Whisperer has flying/trample keywords and using life for surveil can be a self-mill/manipulate the top card of your library source. Doom is a good card while also providing keywords for Kathril. Sylvan Caryatid has important hexproof keyword while also being a source of ramp.

Cards to consider cutting:

Good luck with your deck.

Entomb, Jarad's Orders, Perpetual Timepiece, Fauna Shaman, Golgari Grave-Troll

Fencing Ace or another Odric guy, maybe Adorned Pouncer, haste guy? Strangleroot Geist, Banehound, Dreg Mangler, Gurmag Swiftwing? maybe haste isn't as important if you're trying to do a go tall/voltron strategy. IDK

Nylea, Keen-Eyed?? self mills, indestructible, cost reduction?
