Thanks for the suggestions!
Pikobyte, as I say in the description this is a non combo centric deck, hence your suggestion is not something I would put in the deck.
Song of the Dryads and Imprisoned in the Moon I've tried for a little while and as the cards above they were also cut. However I have thought on multiple occasions to try Kenrith's Transformation since it still deals with opponents commanders and replaces itself.
Crystal Vein over the span of this deck life I've found that much colorless mana is not something it needs and/or can utilize, for this reason I've kept the colors producing permanents to a minimum.
Cephalid Coliseum is indeed a very good suggestion, I'll put it in the next testing phase!

Crystal Vein ramps with Muldy out.
Cephalid Coliseum is an effective draw engine here.
Sylvan Safekeeper protects Muldy like a champ.
Bear Umbra is nothing short of amazing here. Allows you to aggressively progress your gameplan on your first main and still hold up plenty of mana for answers (or just play more stuff). Totem armor does a hell of a job at keeping Muldy in the game also.
Song of the Dryads/Imprisoned in the Moon are versatile and backbreaking against decks that're reliant on their commander. They're reusable (assuming they ever get rid of it) and only reliably answered by 2/5 colors.

Cephalid Coliseum a land that can dig deep

Ok, let's start with ramp. I think running 33 lands is good, but you need plenty of early ramp, luckily, there are lots of why to ramp in .
- I always start with all the signets and talismans that I can run, like Golgari Signet and Talisman of Curiosity
- Added to that list might also be Arcane Signet and Fellwar Stone
- Next are the three one-drop enchantments that should go in every green deck, Wild Growth, Utopia Sprawl, and Carpet of Flowers.
- While new, Titans' Nest has been really good. It ramps, removes unwanted cards from the graveyard, and provides a bit of card advantage.
All told, that's 10-11 cards of pure value, most of which are less than a dollar. Next is card draw. Blue and Black have some fantastic card draw. While I prefer cantrip because they are better for finding combos, the door is wide open. I'll list some go-tos below from cheapest to more expensive.
- I run Frantic Search in most decks because it's good, but any deck that wants cards in the yard needs one. Careful Study and Cephalid Coliseum
- You are already running Dig Through Time; you might consider Treasure Cruise too
- Wheel effects too, very good if you want cards in the yard, think Windfall and Whispering Madness.
- If you want similar effects, Echo of Eons is good (a little pricier). Also, it helps restock your deck.
- Again, cantrips like Ponder, Preordain, and Brainstorm are great for digging for specific cards.
- The top tier (but most expensive) are Sylvan Library, Rhystic Study, and Necropotence. Hard to beat but pricy
Now, let's talk about interaction and removal.
- If you want catch-all interaction, Hero's Downfall, Counterspell, and Disallow are great places to start.
- Nature's Claim is also great. Four life isn't really a lot.
- Depending on the meta Arcane Denial and Delay are really good.
- I also have a soft spot for Mindbreak Trap.
- Free counterspell and removal are always good, perhaps some of the new ones like Fierce Guardianship and Deadly Rollick
- The door is pretty wide open here too.
I'm not going to talk about the mana base for now. This is where the bill will quickly add up. I'd be more than happen to talk about it, though. Solid mana bases for EDH are a passion of mine. Once you buy the pieces for a good mana base in a color combo, you don't really need to do it again (unless you play a lot of these colors).
I that's a lot, but I hope it helps!!

Ok, I have a few suggestions for you and I'll try to keep it budget(ish) friendly.
The main thing I see that needs some tlc is your mana rocks. I'd drop all your lockets etc. that cost mana and get the rest of your Signets and Talismans in here. Dimir Signet, Talisman of Dominance, and Talisman of Resilience. Crystal Vein will also ramp into Muldrotha and can ramp in one turn with Muldy in play.
Feel free to check out my list for ideas. It's definitely not budget friendly but you may find a few ideas there. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Muldrotha's Madhouse - No Infinite

@Komamura I like your style. Thank you for the insight!
Benthic Biomancer is kinda silly. My friend told me about it since he too was looking to build Shabraz and Brallin, Skyshark Rider Flip. Usually involving Glint-Horn Buccaneer, you give it lifelink with Heliod, Sun-Crowned, discard to deal 1 damage, gain 1 life, put the +1/+1 counter on the Biomancer, draw and discard, deal 1 damage, gain 1 life, draw/discard, repeat until gg
Kozilek & Ulamog are mostly meant to be discarded to reshuffle haha but maybe I'll ramp to hard cast ?
Key to the City will likely come out of the deck. Undecided atm.
Whirlwind of Thought is a whirlwind slam dunk, just gotta wait until the new set arrives. I'll have to print out Brallin&Shabraz proxies if I want to use the deck currently
Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur is super cruel lmao I'll think about it
@Thornspire my pleasure, and I very much appreciate the kind words!
I have a few friends that bring the heat, so I need to keep em on their toes with spot removal, boardwipes, and I should probably run more counterspells in my blue decks. They are a necessary evil
Cephalid Coliseum WOW I'm going online and ordering it right now
The Ozolith is interesting. Once I get some games in, if I feel like my commanders are being removed constantly I'll probably invest in one
Very torn on Sigil of Sleep. Been seeing it in a lot of lists and I know I have a playset somewhere. Two friends with graveyard theme decks run a lot of ETB creatures I'm scared of (Plaguecrafter etc), but it can be a continued control piece for one mana on Brallin
Thanks again y'all! You both have fun builds and it's neat to see differences & similarities in the three.
I can't want to actually play the deck!

Hey, thanks for the nice comment on my list! I took a look at yours and I have to say it probably wins more games than mine, simply because you play a lot more interaction (which is good) and you have access to the zero mana ramp.
Some cards I would definitely consider:
Cephalid Coliseum: An amazing land in the later stages of the game with negligable cost of life loss. Three triggers from both commanders and with Narset you can make someone else discard three cards.
The Ozolith: Low opportunity cost and saves all the counters from both commanders (even if bounced or exiled). Also cute with Benthic Biomancer.
Sigil of Sleep: one mana to enchant Brallin and every time you discard a card you can bounce a creature from each opponent. Seems like a good deal to me.
Land Tax: Since you're not playing green, this will give you a lot of cards to discard and lets you keep the goodies.
Have a nice day :)
