I would say Lord of the Unreal would be an auto include even though it is double blue. Also Depala, Pilot Exemplar and Unesh, Criosphinx Sovereign could be very good. A lot of the small tribes have very powerful payoffs. Here are some more.Midnight Entourage, Wirewood Savage, The dragons of tarkir series, including Atarka, World Render and Silumgar, the Drifting Death, Risen Reef, Seshiro the Anointed, and many, many more.

Helm of Obedience if not going combo route
Arisen Gorgon Too dependant on Liliana being on the field
Gorgon Recluse Too high CMC for what you do
Infernal Medusa Medusa /= Gorgon
Keepsake Gorgon Too high mana for one and done
Korozda Gorgon Too high CMC && not running heavy +1+1 Presence
Ohran Viper As you are in blue, you have better options for card draw, especially because this one means you have to deal damage to player first.
Oona's Blackguard Cut unless you are rogue heavy
Pitiless Gorgon All your snakes will typically have deathtouch or be able to gain it, at 3 mana this should do more.
Gaze of the Gorgon A little too high mana but hilarious at the same time.
Vraska, Relic Seeker Might be better for pirate deck, it's not on flavor at all here, and not in line with or as powerful as your other walkers.
Vraska, Swarm's Eminence This is useful however high mana for what it does, totally up to you, this could go either way.
Chromatic Lantern To ensure you make colors. Given you're going heavy black we may need to revise this item.
Chevill, Bane of Monsters super value at 2 cmc
Baleful Strix Super value at 2cmc, fly, dedtouch, card draw
Fathom Feeder value town, and if you yank combo pieces this can help facilitate a win with it's ability
Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons 2cmc, high high values and makes SNEKS!!!!
Hythonia the Cruel Yeet cannons all non-gorgon creatures + big creature
Seshiro the Anointed SNEK SNEK +2+2 to all SNEKS! Draw card wen snek do damage!
Kaseto, Orochi Archmage Unblockable +2+2 SNEKS!
Prowling Serpopard Make's your Sneks and Gorgon's Un-Counterable
Stonecoil Serpent cool snek, but I think you might already have cooler in deck & on list
Orochi Hatchery Funny stuff this one, totally up to you
Bow of Nylea all creatures get deathtouch + more check this one out
Ohran Frostfang Gives attacking creatures you control ded touch and when your creatures damage a player, draw a card.

seshiro_of_the_orochi thank you so much for your comment and ideas!
Meloku the Clouded Mirror is a nice idea, I can even use her with Ashaya, Soul of the Wild to recover my own creatures. I have Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma in my collection, I was going to include her but I prefered to try other things, but I love that card too. Impervious Greatwurm would be easily removed in my meta, but in other situation could fit too. Kodama of the East Tree is awesome, but it "steals" me cascade triggers when it extracts cards from my hand, so I decided to keep it for other decks. Seer's Sundial is nice but I've played this deck and card advantage isn't a problem at all with cascade. The main problem I've noticed this deck has is only to add one or two powerful finishers, something like Craterhoof Behemoth or Kamahl, Heart of Krosa. Just because some games I make an inmense board but I lack a pump effect to really tear appart opponents.
I'll look your Archelos and Brokkos decks, thanks. Love sultai but nowadays I don't have any "proper" sultai EDH deck (only a modest semi-Precon Ukkima-Kazur +1/+1 counters deck)

You might consider these: Necroskitter, Blowfly Infestation, Crumbling Ashes, Black Sun's Zenith, Dusk Urchins, Seshiro the Anointed, Parallel Lives, Second Harvest, Parallel Evolution, Coat of Arms, Throne of the God-Pharaoh, Eldrazi Monument, Zulaport Cutthroat, Pitiless Plunderer, Species Specialist, Flourishing Defenses

Thanks again Geschlechts,
Growth Spiral and Coiling Oracle are both nice early game and I have a tougher time cutting such low CMC cards, which because of the draw basically become cantrips in my deck. I do have probably an unhealthy attachment to the sad robot and you are right about him.
Sakiko, Mother of Summer was recently moved out of the deck. I have found that most of the named Legendary Snakes, which I originally had in here are slowly finding their way out.
If I already owned a Doubling Season, it would definitely go into this deck. But at $45+ price tag, its just too pricey for me.

You could consider adding a Desert package (Desert of the Glorified, Desert of the Indomitable, Grasping Dunes, Endless Sands, and possibly a few of the more minor ones) in order to enable Ifnir Deadlands. If you do, I might consider cutting Opal Palace as your colorless landcount is perhaps a bit on the high side.
Nesting Grounds seems fun in this list.
Tectonic Edge doesn't really fit the current meta, since nobody's running any of the broken lands that would actually warrant getting destroyed.
Your swamp count is only at...9, if you count the budget fetchlands and Urborg. That's a bit low to make Tainted Wood work.
Generous Patron, Seshiro the Anointed, Yawgmoth, Thran Physician, Skullclamp, Moldervine Reclamation, and Driven / Despair are your only ways to accrue much in the way of card draw. It's over the minimum threshold I'd set to run Reliquary Tower, but I'd keep in mind that the Tower is rarely going to do much for you, so cutting it wouldn't be the worst.
