You could run extra ways to poison since straight 4 Lasers don't always work if you don't hard draw into them. Koga and Shadow Triad are both options that let you straight VS Seeker for poison. I was going to test a list that ran Poison Barb to force a Blower/Faba in addition to everything needed to KO Toxtricity or else they just take poison damage in between turns and just die to Toxtricity. I'd also probably tech for Ultra Nec since it's a hard loss for this deck. Fini OHKOs with Poison and Stardust gives you a free turn to draw into other cards to set up your board. Or you can take the loss, but the deck is super rampant on PTCGO's ladder so meh.

Poison Barb seems like a cool option but I just can’t find the room
Also just realized I didn’t play Blower so I will probably either drop a Mail or Ordinary Rod for it, need to test

Honestly you have plenty of space. You don't need E Powers because you have Virbank to deal with Tag Teams. V Maxes in Expanded are non-existant because none of them really do anything notable that other decks don't already do better in addition to being slower. Even Toxtricity can be compared to RoxieChomp in terms of damage and that it needs to hit a somewhat demanding combination of cards to pop off.

Snormax loses to Roxie, Trevnoir, Doll Stall, Ultra Nec and has a hard time with Dark. The deck hits hard but it doesn't do anything else which is why a lot of people consider it a bad deck. If Expanded was centered around a lot more around big bulky attackers then it would be better, but that's currently not the case.

Why not remove some cards and add the Garbodor line?
The ability can be really good with the Virbank City Gym.

hypothetically you could remove the electropowers for 1 trubbish nvi, 1 ditto prism and garb

my thoughts going forward with the list is possibly the octillery line for 2 shaymin ex and 2 additional speed lightning energy but i'm not entirely sure
