I think if you want to focus on the Emerge plan, you should maybe forget a bit about the token plan since tokens are kinda of a nombo with emerge as they can help you cast the big Eldrazi.

One thing I remember that people used to do in pauper, if I'm not mistaken, was to play Spire Golem cheaper thanks to its affinity to Islands and emerge Wretched Gryff for almost free. Of course, those decks were monoblue but there's a cycle of these cards, each with an affinity for each basic land type. Don't know it taking this route would interest you.

Another route that came to my mind was to fill your graveyard with cards like Sakura-Tribe Elder that can sac itself to help you or cycling creature cards to cheapen the cost of cards like Avatar of Woe , Nemesis of Mortals , Ghoultree and Molderhulk . The only problem is that most Emerge cards aren't that strong and these ones that I have mentioned are a bit better. Maybe with something like Emrakul's Influence you would have a better payoff for playing them.

Hope anything I said helps. I'm always happy to see people trying unusual conecpts for decks.

Hmmm ... I think Nemesis of Mortals and Polukranos, World Eater would be a better fit than Nessian Asp and possibly Arbor Colossus . Voracious Hydra would also be a nice fit for your deck. Hope this helps.

grisly salvage and Grapple with the Past are similar cards. Early game GS is better and if you are adding one of the suggested recursion cards i would therefore ditch grapple. doom blade is a good swap out for nameless inversion.

I think your creature count is probably a little high:

Moldgraf Scavenger - is not the most active creature in the deck a 0/4 isn't great early game and a 3/4 is not great late game

Ghoultree & Nemesis of Mortals do not have any evasion or trample so i'm not sure how often they will win you the game in a deck that cant give them either.

Soo long story short my recommendations would be:

Doombladex3-> Nameless Inversion x3

Moldgraf Scavenger x4 & Dead Weight x2-> Traveler's Amulet x4 & Satyr Wayfinder x2

Grapple with the Past x3-> Return from Extinction x3

Ghoultree x2 & Nemesis of Mortals -> Mindwrack Demon x3

c0rocotta A couple things about grave hate when playing this deck from my own experiences. Rest in Peace is almost unbeatable unless you draw Nature's Claim or Assassin's Trophy .

The grave hate that one time removes your graveyard like Nihil Spellbomb , Relic of Progenitus , and Tormod's Crypt can actually be played around to a somewhat decent level. For example, if you have 4 creatures in your grave and they have not popped spell bomb or relic or crypt by the time you gain priority on your own main phase 1, you can cast Nemesis of Mortals for 2 mana and they can't do anything about it. Same with Ghoultree . Once these creatures are on the stack it doesn't matter if your graveyard is eliminated. Your opponent often lets you get these creatures into play because they want to wait and wait until you have a really full yard, but you don't need that many creatures in your yard to start casting these two guys on turn 3.

You can also bounce back pretty quickly once they do decide to exile your graveyard. If you hold a Grisly Salvage back that can usually get you back in it. Another thing to note, when your graveyard is exiled by bomb, relic, or crypt, any of your Splinterfright or Boneyard Wurm that die as a result will go to the graveyard after it was exiled and will start you off with a creature or two.

Grave hate definitely still wrecks you, but these are the ways you can sort of be strategic in the way you deploy your cards to get around some of the common hate cards out there.

I hadn't thought about Rancor ! Awesome suggestions. I threw in the Loxodon Warhammer in for the lifelink and trample. With this set up by turn 4 or 5 I'm only paying 2 for Nemesis of Mortals and at the most 3 for Ghoultree . Splinterfright perpetuates the self mill but I'll probably switch out two Nemesis of Mortals for a complete play set of Splinterfright and the other 2 for another Ghoultree and Ambush Viper just to round things off and make it more aggressive. MORE SUGGESTIONS PLEASE :)
