You definitely want some more 1 mana creatures -- I'd go with the playset of Dryad Militant . It's a good rate and against some decks it'll have to be killed first before they can care about your other stuff.
Scooze is grindy, so I'd go to 2 copies maindeck. It's okay as a manasink once your main aggro plan is going, but it's better in long games.
I'd honestly not bother with the Loaming Shamans, put two of the Scoozes in there and if four scoozes isn't enough grave hate, then consider adding some more.
Prowling Serpopard is okay, but I'm not sure how relevant the "can't be countered" clause is right now. We just got Counterspell though, so we'll see.
Mutagenic Growth could be really powerful. At least consider it.
You need at least a copy or two of Weather the Storm in the sideboard for aggro matchups. You already have a decent matchup against things like burn or zoo, but that'll hole it all up.
If you had a LOT more 1 drops, Rhonas's Last Stand could really put in some work. I'd at least test it out after you get a few weeks of experience, maybe it'll be good.

Magecraft triggers with every copy of Grapeshot or Ground Rift , which is going to be interesting. I can't wait to kill with Witherbloom Apprentice / Weather the Storm in limited, but I don't envy constructed players figuring out lumimancer storm.

Hey! I think that this deck should use Miren, the Moaning Well . It's a way of regaining life with a creature that will die because of some effect. It makes you gain a lot of life and increases the effect of Willowdusk's ability.
About the untap effects outside of blue, you can use Thousand-Year Elixir or Magewright's Stone . About combos... well, if you use sacrifice effects (e.g. Ashnod's Altar ), you could try the Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + Triskelion -like combos (actually, these two work alone, but some combos needs a sac outlet). Depending of other cards, loops with Mikaeus, sacrifice outlets and creatures with Persist could also work.
An artifact like Eternity Vessel can reset your life (if I remember well, having your life total become some value counts as lifegain).
Maybe creatures like Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper or Reyhan, Last of the Abzan works well inside this deck. As instants or sorceries... the only one that came to my mind now is Weather the Storm , which can be very interesting in some situations.
Why use cards like Jaddi Offshoot (gains you only one life), Dash Hopes (I think that's an unreliable counterspell and the 5 life is a low cost in EDH), Blunt the Assault (I think that this card is pretty bad, maybe a card like Gray Merchant of Asphodel gains you much more life while drains your opponents) or Lifegift (it won't make you gain a lot of life on the same turn)?

I guess I've been spoiled with Weather the Storm often being a four-for-one, whereas Brutality is more of a 3-for-3. I get what you're saying, though.

Here's a quick-and-dirty update to my old grixis list - not even playtested, but a point of reference, nonetheless.
It sounds like we all have slightly different directions we might like to take - Gearhulk, the new Command, maybe a more tempo build, etc. If y'all have other ones, I encourage you to whip them up, and we can all reference off of one another.
One piece I know that's kinda missing is a solid option against Burn. Kalitas is great, but how much sideboard space can we really devote? Collective Brutality is handy, but not sure it's worth maindeck - and while a kinda-sorta two for one against burn is nice, it still seems "just okay." We really want something like Weather the Storm , sadly. Maybe Dragon's Claw is worth it?

shepherdofangels Sure! The basic idea is to play lots of 1-drop artifact trinkets that you can sacrifice to draw more. Stuff like Chromatic Sphere. If ich-tekik is out when you sacrifice it, then all of your golems get bigger and you draw another card that hopefully gives you another trinket to play, like Conjurer's Bauble.
Umori, the Collector and Foundry Inspector can make all of the trinkets free to cast which makes it possible to play and sacrifice even more in one turn. And if you have Bolas's Citadel or Mystic Forge this makes it even easier to cast like 10-15 spells in a turn.
The payoff for this kind of storm is twofold. Again, with ich-tekik your stuff gets bigger every time you sac an artifact. But there are also storm payoffs like Aetherflux Reservoir, Weather the Storm Tendrils of Agony etc.

VampDemigod, the name of Life Goes On does match with green's philosophy, but I feel that one mana is far too efficient for green; only black and white should have life gaining that is that efficient.

Also Weather the Storm which you know, gains enough life for an entire color.
