Tome of Legends , Urza's Saga , and Smothering Tithe are both powerful and synergistic, but are also expensive. If you are using the Osgir precon as a shell for the deck, Digsite Engineer and Bronze Guardian are both payoffs for having a ton of artifacts, as well as Darksteel Juggernaut . Walking Ballista , Triskelion , and Monoskelion are all good at converting counters into damage, and Fiery Emancipation seems like some great top end in order to make your stuff hit hard enough to kill. Other good counter payoffs include Triskelavus , Pentavus , and Crystalline Crawler .If you plan to sacrifice creatures a lot, then Blade of the Bloodchief can do a lot of work here too.

I did some searching on colourless cards that might be a good fit because I thought it was fun that they could be cast for cheap/free and also acts as pseudo-rap.

Some cards that might be worth a try:

Also this combos w Triskellion: Cauldron of Souls

One thing I noticed in this deck was that non-creatures spells feel really expensive because they don't get the discount. So if you are looking for cards to cut you could start there.

I don't think this works the way you think this does. Kurkesh, Onakke Ancient works only with activated abilities that aren't mana abilities, so the cards in this deck it actually works with are Alchemist's Vial , Buzzing Whack-a-Doodle , the equip activation of Adventuring Gear (though that would be useless, as it would only equip to one creature), Metalwork Colossus (though this is not an ability you would want to copy as it would fizzle since it would already be in your hand from the graveyard), and Arcbound Reclaimer which is a great ability to activate since it is basically free recursion.

I think you are confusing activated abilities and triggered abilities. You want abilities that have some sort of cost. Pentavus would be great for the deck.

abby315 on Meren to Nethroi

The above comment about sums it up for me, unless you were planning to take it in a combo or other kind of direction! Here are some good Nethroi targets that have low power but make tokens or have good effects when they enter:

Biogenic Ooze Blade Splicer Master Splicer
Maul Splicer
Sensor Splicer
Noosegraf Mob
Chittering Witch
Creakwood Liege
Akroan Horse
Pentavus
Deep Forest Hermit
Deranged Hermit
Nut Collector
Duplicant
Geist-Honored Monk
Ghave, Guru of Spores
God-Eternal Oketra
Hornet Queen
Izoni, Thousand-Eyed
Tendershoot Dryad
Trostani Discordant Trostani's Summoner

Most of the above cards create creature tokens, so you'll probably want the usual: Doubling Season, Anointed Procession, Parallel Lives if you include a lot of them.

Here are some 0-power utility creatures to consider, because they're free to reanimate if they get killed:

Arboreal Grazer
Birds of Paradise
Devoted Druid
Incubation Druid
Faeburrow Elder
Custodi Soulbinders
Embodiment of Agonies
Fertilid
Golgari Grave-Troll (also a great include because Dredge can fill your GY)

And you'll also want at least a few additional Mutaters in case you have Nethroi out and want to trigger it again:

Cubwarden
Auspicious Starrix
Cavern Whisperer
Gemrazer
Dirge Bat
Mindleecher
Migratory Greathorn
Necropanther
Sawtusk Demolisher

...all seem like good includes.

Hope this gives you a good place to start and a list of interesting cards to consider. Many are very affordable. Now I kinda want to make a Nethroi deck.

Have fun!

Not sure if you still are working on this deck, but it might be good to include more tokens. For example, Tetravus and Pentavus could help increase the experience counters a lot.

with the number of artifact token producers the deck runs, you could probably fit Time Sieve into the list and use it as an out for infinite turns, or even just chaining one or two extra in a row to help close games out.

In the token producer category, you also have Triskelavus. Not as good as Pentavus but another one of those effects.
