Personally, I think you could take this down to a pure Selesnya deck. As I see it, the red creatures do not reliably combo or add enough value on their own. I would substitute in cards like Weathered Wayfarer and Knight of the Reliquary to give you an additional way of interacting with opponents. Imagine searching up lands like Bojuka Bog at will. Or heck at the end of an opponents turn grabbing a Treetop Village and swinging for an extra 4 the next turn.). These changes could help your manabase be less painful as well. You could also have room in your sideboard for creatures like Scavenging Ooze or Chameleon Colossus if your up for it. I have a couple more ideas for later if you want to explore them, but this is where I would start myself. Also don't get too attached to the 3 mana or less rule for cosmic rebirth. It can be a trap.

Stitcher's Supplier is pretty much a staple in self mill decks.

Another one I see in alot of decks is Satyr Wayfinder helps keep lands coming and mills twice the cards as Sultai Skullkeeper

You have alot of lands. For a 60 card deck typically you won't go much higher than 24. You have 33.

You have cards in your deck that aren't modern legal. Brawn Sewer Nemesis Deathrite Shaman are not modern legal. Some substitutes that are legal are Wonder instead of brawn. Lord of Extinction over Sewer nemesis. Scavenging Ooze over deathrite shaman.

Lhurgoyf is only playable in a commander setting in my opinion. You can't count on your opponents graveyard being filled with creatures at all. I'd recommend Urborg Lhurgoyf as a direct upgrade. Has a self mill abilities and cost half as much Mana.

I'd take out most of your cards that cost 5 Mana. You have quite a few and i don't really see the purpose of Consuming Aberration also your deck is mostly creatures and lands so a Grisly Salvage will get you the same effect as Sultai Soothsayer I hope this helps.

Apologies for the misunderstanding. Since your deck is already at the ideal size of 60 cards, that's a good starting point. Here are some specific suggestions to improve your deck and enhance its graveyard mechanics:

Add more efficient creatures: Look for creatures that provide value when they enter or leave the battlefield. Cards like Bloodghast, Stitcher's Supplier, or Glowspore Shaman can help you fill your graveyard and provide additional creatures for Lumberknot's growth.

Include recursion: Adding cards that allow you to retrieve creatures from your graveyard can be beneficial. Consider cards like Eternal Witness, Gravecrawler, or Phyrexian Reclamation to bring back key creatures from your graveyard.

Enhance graveyard filling: In addition to the mentioned Grisly Salvage and Mulch, you can also consider cards like Grisly Salvage, Satyr Wayfinder, or Glowspore Shaman. These cards will help you fill your graveyard while providing additional benefits.

Consider a sacrifice theme: Adding cards that allow you to sacrifice creatures can provide additional value and fuel your graveyard strategy. Consider cards like Viscera Seer, Altar's Reap, or Carrion Feeder to sacrifice creatures and gain advantages.

Improve removal options: It's essential to have efficient removal spells in your deck. Consider cards like Assassin's Trophy, Abrupt Decay, or Victim of Night to deal with problematic creatures or other threats.

Include graveyard hate: Since you're relying on graveyard mechanics, it's a good idea to include cards that can disrupt your opponents' graveyard strategies. Consider adding cards like Grafdigger's Cage, Tormod's Crypt, or Scavenging Ooze to prevent opponents from utilizing their graveyards.

wallisface Thank you for the feedback! I took a lot of your advice. Im currently play testing an adjusted version of this on Moxfield. Right now, I took your advice about remove Ajani and doing a playset of Hardened Scales. In terms of creatures, I went with Scavenging Ooze and Undergrowth Champion. I dropped Snakeskin Veil and Arbor Armament. I dropped Arbor because I believe the Falconer still gives me a flying edge. Snakeskin I feel was just taking up space. I going to see if I can get more counter production going from creatures. When I find a version I like I'll update this decklist.

DeadTree i’m going to ignore Ebony Treefolk for now as it’s not a modern-legal card, and imo doesn’t work particularly well with your other cards anyway.

It looks like your ganeplan should be around going-wide with token-creatures, to give Creakwood Lieges buffs as much power as possible, while also gaining life to benefit Blood Researcher.

I think Sedgemoor Witch fits this theme perfectly, as it makes an army of creatures for Creakwood Liege, while also gaining you life for Blood Researcher. The only other creature i’d suggest running is Slitherhead and some Scavenging Ooze, and then a whole lot if killspells.

Suggestion decklist below. I’m not sure on your budget - i’ve tried to low on cost but let me know if this needs to be cheaper.
