All creatures get -4/-4 until end of turn.

Unlicensed Hearse seems like an awesome edition completely forgot that that card existed honestly XD, as far as aggro goes obviously game ones are a kind of coinflip as we don't know what our opponent is doing doing until we see that basic mountain come down turn one so sometimes is a bad 7 to keep against that, but games 2-3 are typically much more consistent wins with bringing in the second The Meathook Massacre, Languish, the 2 Bloodchief's Thirst, and potentially both a second Phyrexian Fleshgorger and Sarulf, Realm Eater as early game bodies to blunt the aggression. As far as extinction event goes is it better than just a second languish or possibly a Bontu's Last Reckoning?

For counterspells, Counterspell is a classic. Brine Shaman could be a cute trick, as long as you keep the Zombies coming. Countersquall adds a touch of damage on. Disallow is a little more expensive, but hits pretty much everything. Diplomatic Escort, Wizard Replica, Spiketail Drake, and Siren Stormtamer are inexpensive options that can fill your graveyard with creatures.

That’s possible, if your opponent is running some sort of glass cannon deck without any removal. But against an unknown player/deck, I wouldn’t bet on it. There are innumerable cards like Wrath of God, Languish or Blasphemous Act that would cut off your mana supply, not to mention a million “Destroy target artifact” spells that are even more prevalent.

Other good cards to hurry up the deaths of other creatures with slime counters on them would be the -/- cards black gets and some of the other boardwipes Massacre Wurm, Massacre Girl, Languish, Toxic Deluge, Black Sun's Zenith, Decree of Pain, Life's Finale, Plague Wind, or Killing Wave.

I like the new direction a lot! Feels a lot more competitive! Here are some thoughts on ways to improve:
If you ditch the Languish, then everything you cast costs 2 or less mana. That would let you go down to 20 lands, which I think will be important as your deck probably wants a very high density of spells.
Removing the above lands and spells will leave you with 5 free slots, which I think you should use to get some more creatures. I would personally be doing some 3-2 mix of Golgari Thug and Stinkweed Imp - both of these can quickly get Phage into the grave (just be aware that if Golgari Thug on the battlefield, you HAVE to put a creature card on top of your deck - this can sometimes be awkward, but is usually fine).
Mask of Memory is interesting, but not great as it requires you using you Dermotaxi on Stitcher's Supplier and then somehow getting through with damage on it. I would suggest running Smuggler's Copter instead of Mask of Memory, it gives you the same effect without requiring the equip cost, and has a much better time staying alive & dealing damage (while letting you discard towards your combo).
I don't think you need Negate, as you already have hand-disruption and killspells, you should be able to ensure your opponent can't be too annoying. I'd move Negate to your sideboard, and run Otherworldly Gaze instead, which can do a lot for setting you up for victory.
With the above suggestions you have awesome odds of getting Phage into the grave, and pretty decent odds of getting Dermotaxi into hand - but to increase those Dermotaxi odds slightly i'd suggest replacing 2 of your 20 lands with Buried Ruin. This will let you grab a taxi from the grave in a pinch, if the game has gone late and you really need one.
I think overall your sideboard should focus on counterspells and ways to avoid opponent hate. Between games you always want to leaving all your combo-finding pieces in, so the cards you'll be swapping in-and-out are the hand-disruption and killspells. In that vein you don't need additional killspells in the side. Dispel is a great sideboard card, as it will deal with most threats. Welding Jar could also be good for protecting the taxi. Annul is probably also a great sideboard card for dealing with any weird stuff your opponent might be up to.

Balaam__, Languish is fairly on par for most board wipes at 4 cmc. Other options could include: - Blasphemous Act (which is much better if opponent is playing many creatures) - Damn Great versatility but you would have to add white to use it best - Cry of the Carnarium (as kamarupa mentioned), Shrivel, or Pestilent Haze, which are all similar effects to Languish. The difference is what versatility you want in the card. You've got options! I reccomend mtgassist.com.
