Hey man, Looks cool. A couple cards I'm not a huge fan of here, like Smothering Abomination and Greater Good. Abomination is slow and because you're not running a token deck you will often have to sac creatures you dont want to as it's not a may sac. Greater good I'm not really understanding as you have very few creatures with greater than 3 power - it will rarely actually net you cards. A more general criticism is the number of creatures. You have 26/100 creatures and only 4 that come back when you kill them. Maybe consider more regenerate creatures like Mortivore or something like Bloodghast that will come back without you needing mana open. Also you're such a creature focused deck and I can see you running out quickly (part of the reason I don't like Smothering Abomination).

I've run decks like this before (albeit with green as well), they can sometimes get pretty tough to edit or improve once you make your initial roster. I can't help you choose what to swap in/out or with what, especially since this isn't a color combo I'm 100% familiar running, but I have some recommendations to expand your maybeboard...

Overall, Daxos the Returned would be a good way to take additional advantage of and further feed your experience counters, though I'm unsure if it fits the deck strategy itself 1:1.

There are any number of cards that can take advantage of a sacrifice engine, some mainstays in decks I made a while back (and since scrapped) would be Smothering Abomination, Sifter of Skulls, Blood Artist, and Zulaport Cutthroat, though countless more exist for sure, and these are all single cards.

I also would point you towards "Emerge" cards (such as Distended Mindbender), co-opting your opponent to sacrifice things as well (such as with Voldaren Pariah  Flip, Rankle's Prank, etc), and even some stat balloons like Elenda, the Dusk Rose (or DIY a stat balloon with Sadistic Glee).

Personally, some good supporting cards might be Shadows of the Past, Black Market, Moonlit Wake, and Inheritance, though these are just some examples of directions you could go in.

Lastly, I encourage you to take a look at some of the more recent sets in general, especially Wild of Eldraine's "Bargain" mechanic. It might have a good amount of synergy here.

This looks like a very solid list! I would perhaps swap Mitotic Slime out for Smothering Abomination. Also like Crow-Umbra suggested, I think swapping the removal spells out for creatures that have removal effects would be ideal since then your removal will slap face and draw a card as well.

Smothering Abomination is a great card draw engine. It does a ton of work in my Grismold, the Dreadsower deck.
