carpecanum, thank you for the awesome advice, no clue how I missed Isochron Scepter, because even I know it’s popular in commander. Blood Artist and Zulaport Cutthroat are there specifically for the cheeky combo with one of them, Yawgmoth, Thran Physician, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, and one other non-human creature. Upon review, I will likely be removing Blood Artist as he’ll kill me before multiple opponents. I will definitely take Arcane Lighthouse because otherwise some strategies shut down the turning men into food degeneracy. I’ll also try and make room for the Rabid Bite and similar cards, as well as some board wipe protection. Thank you again!

Without a ton of tokens I'm not sure cards like Blood Artist and Zulaport Cutthroat will really help a lot. If you want to focus more on tokens maybe get Tend the Pests, Second Harvest, Chatterfang, Squirrel General etc.
I think you should get a few (or a lot) of cards like Rabid Bite that allow Shelob to just murder somebody and make a token. There are several (Instants and Sorceries, mostly green) and they tend to have a CMC low enough to fit inside a Isochron Scepter and so would all but one of the Instants you already have. I see your two artifact pingers there, those are a great start. Arcane Lighthouse would help with spells that target like that. A lot of creatures have abilities that will carry over in Artifact form and I really like some of the possibilities there.

Well, something like Tamiyo's Safekeeping is super useful against a creature deck (say like this one), due to indestructible. Snakeskin Veil and Lazotep Plating also give +1/+1 counters, and so seem core to the deck. And the Budget Beasts deck I linked to does have a little bit of creature removal in Rabid Bite. I wouldn't say it was tuned for competitive play, though. How would you sideboard against it? Fog, I assume, but what would you take out?

If he plays T1 Guul Draz Assassin, T2 level up, you might be able to just outnumber that, with T1 Elvish Mystic, T2 Elvish Mystic and Llanowar Elves. This isn't an unreasonable start and gives you a significant board and mana advantage. With a playset each of Llanowelves, Mystics, and Arbor Elfs, you should be able to make a fast, reliable start and get around the Assassin play. Dark Ritual gives a big shot of mana for one turn, but Elves are capable of sustaining that level of mana production. Good luck!
