Well, I mostly say not to play more than 1 Nykthos from personal experience with it in zombies. Zombies doesn't have that many payoffs for a lot of mana (although that's changed since Carrion Feeder is legal now), and I found that it sometimes made mana awkward. When it can make a bunch of mana and let you play your hand, it's good, but otherwise it's pretty meh, and I value consistency with mana a lot more than that every-so-often scenario, so in my own deck I cut it down to 0-1 copies. Although the fact that I was playing Mutavault may also have played a role in that decision.
Either way, you can play it if you want. It would probably work out fine either way.

Against midrange, you want cards that are able to create value so you can keep up with them; the most popular midrange decks play 1-for-1 removal, so creatures with recursion (like Relentless Dead ) or ones that make multiple bodies ( Diregraf Colossus ) are good. Murderous Rider is a beast vs midrange since it's almost an automatic 2-for-1 on its own (kills something then they need removal to kill it). Rotting Regisaur , while big, is easily answered by most removal spells outside of Lightning Bolt , plus its ability is the opposite of what you want in a resource-dependent matchup like midrange. So don't play it. If you do play Nykthos only play 1, there are a lot of B symbols on your creatures so 2 is a little risky without Urborg.

May I suggest having a having a split between Cathartic Reunion and Thrill of Possibility ? Reunion is better at filling the graveyard for Reveler, but after you get 6 in there every Reunion after drops off in value; plus the instant speed on Thrill lets you use your mana more efficiently. For example, if it's turn 3 and you have a Terminate and Thrill in hand you can pass the turn and draw if they don't play a threat, which you wouldn't be able to do with Cathartic Reunion.

Mistbind is a strong enough card on its own to make up for the slight inconsistency with the Rogues, so it should be fine. Hope you like it!

I figured Fiend Hunter could replace Plague Engineer in the main because it's got more relevance in a broader range of matchups. Like, the second Engineer against Jund is gonna be a near-dead card while the Fiend Hunter that would be in its place wouldn't be.

How about a Fiend Hunter in the main (probably in place of a Plague Engineer ) for some tutorable removal? You can do the permanent exile trick with Ephemerate , too. I would also recommend playing a few one-of creatures in the sb, like Thrun, the Last Troll , Collector Ouphe , Thragtusk , Acidic Slime , etc etc.

Hmm, I forgot they printed that. I could see a couple Duelists making it in. Thanks!

A better answer for lands is Fulminator Mage . It's a creature you can attack with and reanimate for another use.

I'd replace the Claims with Unearth since it can reanimate Skelementals and Hell's Thunders. More discard spells (the rest of the Inquisitions and some Thoughtseize ) will generally benefit your deck more than Shock and Contaminated Ground .

Murderous Rider is a definite upgrade. Might even be good enough to play 4, especially if you play against midrange a lot.

A couple Brazen Borrower would be great in here! It can be used as removal and is board wipe protection. Also makes kind of makes your mana curve a bit better. I'd cut a Vendilion Clique and a Wee Dragonauts to fit them in.
One Mutavault could be a good inclusion as an extra wizard/faerie that can activate itself to meet the requirements for Wizard's Lightning/Retort.
