Not sure how important a turn 2 Grist is to you but Ebon Stronghold , Peat Bog , Hickory Woodlot and Havenwood Battleground could help. I use the Blue version as one of the few ways to get Thada Adel, Acquisitor out on turn two. Birds of Paradise and Gilded Goose would help as well.

Unlife on State of Mono-Colored Decks in …

Personal experience within my own playgroup? Mono-colored decks, any of them, can all be built very well even outside of cEDH. But, it may take some time to tune and refine them to that point. I've got Omnath, Locus of Mana , Torbran, Thane of Red Fell , Radiant, Archangel , Thada Adel, Acquisitor , and Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon , and they all play well with a variety of card draw, removal, ramp, etc. But, one of the best decks I play against is a God-Eternal Oketra deck. It can turn out an army of creatures incredibly quickly, almost always has a few cards in hands plus a nice suite of removal. I think that like any other EDH deck, mono-colored decks can almost always be adjusted and optimized and fiddled with to get a great end result, but it just take the time of playing with the deck to figure out what you need.

Thada Adel, Acquisitor is an amazing Rogue. Fan Favorite and Knacksaw Clique could work.

Endless Scream , Howl from Beyond or a few more cards to increase Rogue damage might help.

If you traded out rogues until you had almost all fliers you would open up a lot or fly/anti-non-fly cards. Gravitational Shift is great defense and offense

Dimir aggro tribal is always fun! Thada Adel, Acquisitor is a really decent rogue, as most decks have some sort of island triland or something in play. At worst, you could also pair it with Spreading Seas to take care of pesky lands. Changeling Outcast seems to fit with what your deck wants to do too! Might also look into some of the other higher CMC cards, things like Cairn Wanderer or Graveshifter if you're looking for something with a bit more utility!

Bitterblossom is another consistent way to flood the field with rogues.

Also, Heirloom Blade is a decent card for any tribal deck. It'll increase the power of your little evasive creatures and turns any of your little guys into guaranteed card draw if they die!

Thada Adel, Acquisitor is amazing. I have had every players Sol Ring multiple times just for fun. Just exiling combo pieces is useful.

Cloak and Dagger is good. Knowledge Exploitation can change the game.

Thada Adel, Acquisitor steal a LOT. if nothing else all the copies of Solemn Simulacrum. Then you know every card in their deck. I like to steal Sol Ring.
