Have you considered playing a single copy of Omnispell Adept for Army of the Damned? I think it would be really cool and janky

oh oh i got thrown off by the boots being red, i mean the hexproof ones, can't remember what they're called though.i thinking its Swiftfoot Boots. And Killing Wave was a pet card for me too for a while, if your looking for a more viable fun card, Army of the Damned is p good. Also don't forget that your in green, and ramp is a thing, much better then signets imo

First things first: Spore Frog is an all star in this deck.

This deck looks like it wants to make tokens and sac them off. Carrion Feeder and Viscera Seer are great budget sac outlets. I’d also recommend Phyrexian Plaguelord since you can convert tokens into -X/-X to remove stuff. This is noteworthy because -X/-X effects will kill indestructible creatures where normal damage and effects that use the word “destroy” will not. Also note that if you are trying to destroy a God such as Erebos, he needs to become a creature before you are able to get rid of him. Since you have Zulaport Cutthroat, you should also use Blood Artist.

Now, you need tokens to sac off. Avenger of Zendikar is your best option. Hornet Queen creates a small army of deathtouch fliers. Mycoloth wants to eat all nonessential creatures so he can generate an army at the start of each of your turns. Mitotic Slime is als great with Meren since it lets you build experience counters and generate tokens to sac off. Army of the Damned is an army in a can and can be abused by tossing Eterbal Witness in and out of the graveyard. Ghoulcaller Gisa is a very good choice if you’re looking to sac off Avenger of Zendikar repeatedly.

Ramp is a cornerstone of every deck with green in it. Sakura Tribe Elder is good, but you want Rampant Growth, Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, and Explosive Vegetation. You cannot really abuse these with Meren unless you sac and reanimate Eternal Witness, but they are essential for making sure you get the correct colors you need when you need them. If you want to be cheeky, you can run Abundance as well to guarantee land drops when you need them or skip lands when you don’t need them.

Card draw is necessary here. Regal Force is a great follow up once you’ve made an army of creatures. Skeletal Scrying, Read the Bones, Night's Whisper. Don’t wince at the cost in life, 2 life here and there does not matter when you have 40 life.

Board wipes will level the playing field if you fall behind. Necromantic Selection, Decree of Pain, and Black Sun's Zenith are viable options here. You can wipe and rebuild faster than your opponents more likely than not, so pull the trigger if you feel like you are losing or falling behind.

Overwhelming Stampede is good, but you need more reliable ways of closing the game out. Overrun and Pathbreaker Ibex are very good, and you should move Triumph of the Hoards to your mainboard.

Well, any suggestions for what to cut though? Maybe I should replace Army of the Damned for Rise from the Tides? What else could be needed? Also, does Remand work the same way as Unsubstantiate?

I need some help deciding to remove some cards to make it 100 cards commander legal, it’s 105 right now.

Throw me some ideas to add or replace cards too. Feel free to criticize me, tell me if there should be changes. First time really trying to put a deck together. I think I’m having mana and creature cost issues? I’m not sure? Thanks!

Army of the Damned is pretty slow, especially for modern. Even with your Saga, I think it's best that you drop it.

Hey itachi45, thanks for the suggestions. I am not looking into splashing any colours right now, so no Diregraf Captain and Prized Amalgam I am afraid. Army of the Damned sounds like a good option for those long games and possibly something for the maybe-board depending on your local meta, although it's quite weak to board wipes that cost a lot less to cast.. Also, so far I haven't had 8 mana available with nothing to do that I would be able to cast AOTD.
