Make sure the deck can win without Fynn. I love the card but he's currently the only thing in pioneer that will give things poison. Chevill, Bane of Monsters could give you some extra card draw and feeds into the death touch strategy and can be gotten off of collected. Additionally, you could cut/move Questing Beast to the sideboard and run Lurrus of the Dream-Den as your companion. Alternatively, a Bow of Nylea go wide token statedy with Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons and Pharika, God of Affliction could be interesting but you'd have to rework your removal and well, I feel like you have the best removal Sweet for pioneer already.

Helm of Obedience if not going combo route
Arisen Gorgon Too dependant on Liliana being on the field
Gorgon Recluse Too high CMC for what you do
Infernal Medusa Medusa /= Gorgon
Keepsake Gorgon Too high mana for one and done
Korozda Gorgon Too high CMC && not running heavy +1+1 Presence
Ohran Viper As you are in blue, you have better options for card draw, especially because this one means you have to deal damage to player first.
Oona's Blackguard Cut unless you are rogue heavy
Pitiless Gorgon All your snakes will typically have deathtouch or be able to gain it, at 3 mana this should do more.
Gaze of the Gorgon A little too high mana but hilarious at the same time.
Vraska, Relic Seeker Might be better for pirate deck, it's not on flavor at all here, and not in line with or as powerful as your other walkers.
Vraska, Swarm's Eminence This is useful however high mana for what it does, totally up to you, this could go either way.
Chromatic Lantern To ensure you make colors. Given you're going heavy black we may need to revise this item.
Chevill, Bane of Monsters super value at 2 cmc
Baleful Strix Super value at 2cmc, fly, dedtouch, card draw
Fathom Feeder value town, and if you yank combo pieces this can help facilitate a win with it's ability
Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons 2cmc, high high values and makes SNEKS!!!!
Hythonia the Cruel Yeet cannons all non-gorgon creatures + big creature
Seshiro the Anointed SNEK SNEK +2+2 to all SNEKS! Draw card wen snek do damage!
Kaseto, Orochi Archmage Unblockable +2+2 SNEKS!
Prowling Serpopard Make's your Sneks and Gorgon's Un-Counterable
Stonecoil Serpent cool snek, but I think you might already have cooler in deck & on list
Orochi Hatchery Funny stuff this one, totally up to you
Bow of Nylea all creatures get deathtouch + more check this one out
Ohran Frostfang Gives attacking creatures you control ded touch and when your creatures damage a player, draw a card.

seshiro_of_the_orochi thank you so much for your comment and ideas!
Meloku the Clouded Mirror is a nice idea, I can even use her with Ashaya, Soul of the Wild to recover my own creatures. I have Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma in my collection, I was going to include her but I prefered to try other things, but I love that card too. Impervious Greatwurm would be easily removed in my meta, but in other situation could fit too. Kodama of the East Tree is awesome, but it "steals" me cascade triggers when it extracts cards from my hand, so I decided to keep it for other decks. Seer's Sundial is nice but I've played this deck and card advantage isn't a problem at all with cascade. The main problem I've noticed this deck has is only to add one or two powerful finishers, something like Craterhoof Behemoth or Kamahl, Heart of Krosa. Just because some games I make an inmense board but I lack a pump effect to really tear appart opponents.
I'll look your Archelos and Brokkos decks, thanks. Love sultai but nowadays I don't have any "proper" sultai EDH deck (only a modest semi-Precon Ukkima-Kazur +1/+1 counters deck)

I’ve been playing edh for about a year or so (been playing other formats since Amonkhet, so about 3-4 years now).
My playgroup and I have been in rut for about 4 months, playing the same deck or different decks but with the same strategy and it’s feeling really long and boring. I wanna build something new, something bold and flashy. We’re around 16 to 20 people and here’s what we’re currently playing
Zombies, Dragons, Vampires, Tokens, Cats, Artifacts, Aristocrate, Reanimation, Groupe hug, Slivers, Elves, Enchantress, And for some reasons we all have a Derevi stax deck (we all had it before we met).
I wanna build something out of those theme/tribes. Something not to casual but far from cEDH (something in between).
If it helps my favourite sets were Amonkhet and Hour of Devastation. I love everything themed around ancient egypt (yes one of my favourite game is assassin’s creed origin and my favourite movie is the mummy with Brendan Fraser).
My problem with those two set is that other than Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons (which I don’t like much because if Hapatra gets Imprisoned in the Moon or Darksteel Mutation or if she gets blown up to many times well the deck is worthless) I don’t see anything worth it for edh so if the deck doesn’t come from those sets it’s fine.
My playstyle is pretty much aggro, either an army of small creatures with haste or big dumb creatures.
It’s a long shot but if anyone has ideas for a commander please let me know (do not list me a deck just a commander is fine I like to build my own stuff personally).

Heads up that Tainted Wood is not modern legal.

With the way Xyris is written, it triggers for every card and you get snakes equal to the number of cards drawn. If Xyris was only meant to give you one snake regardless of how many cards were drawn, it would be written to say something like "Whenever an opponent draws one or more cards except the first one...", kind of like how Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons is written to only give one snake regardless of how many counters are placed.
Just to make sure it's clear: Xyris, the Writhing Storm only gives you snakes for extra cards your opponents draw, not extra cards you draw.

tacolover25 I've seen Contagion Clasp used in similar builds, especially when they focus on Infect or are built around Necroskitter... in this build I think it may be too slow, and 2-drop is prioritized for Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons due to that card being targeted relentlessly by removal. Thanks for checking out the build, and also for the suggestion. Cheers!

I would personally go with a Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons for some great blockers and Blowfly Infestation for counter spread and Crumbling Ashes for some destroy and Supernatural Stamina makes you do more damage and live Karn's Bastion is a proliferate land so it’s hard to destroy.
My wither/infect deck is Called withering flesh and infected blood if you want to see mine :D :P
