I played around with a similar deck using a burn spell + Worldfire + Spellweaver Helix to finish off an opponent. It was never quite fast enough for Modern, but it worked fine in more casual games, albeit it was a bit too linear for my taste. While your deck has a slightly different goal, I think I can still provide some useful insights.

The biggest issue I see is your deck doesn't have a good way of getting your bomb into the graveyard--casting a nine mana spell is a bit out of the question, particularly as you're lacking an explosive ramp package, and hoping to discard down to seven is just not feasible.

You have a couple options in mono-Green.

I'd also consider cutting Advent of the Wurm--it does not really add all that much on its onw to justify splashing White.

I've been putting together a budget Muldrotha list and my budget constraints have led me to find quite a few amazing cards that pair with Muldrotha.

First off, with all your sacrifice/reanimator affects, using cards that take advantage of those affects will be beneficial. Butcher of Malakir, Dictate of Erebos, and Grave Pact add a lot of control to the deck. Cards like Fleshbag Marauder and Merciless Executioner get extra value, as does every one of your sacrifice engines. Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest makes these affects even more powerful. Pump up your whole army while picking off theirs or gaining value through sacrifice engines.

Nyx Weaver and Splinterfright are excellent ways to fill your graveyard in addition to what you're already running. Sidisi, Brood Tyrant also helps to fill your graveyard while providing extra value for your self milling in the form of a zombie army.

Executioner's Capsule is excellent repeatable removal that takes up an artifact slot. Very valuable. Tormod's Crypt helps shut down opposing graveyard strategies, over and over for free. Wayfarer's Bauble provides ramp in the artifact slot.

Attrition is an excellent sacrifice engine that is also repeatable removal. False Demise serves as a way to keep your commander on the battleground or take an opponents creature/commander. Font of Fertility provides ramp in the enchantment slot. Heightened Awareness is a great way to draw an extra card every turn for practically free. Monastery Siege provides similar value. Seal of Removal gives repeatable bounce in an enchantment slot. Vessel of Nascency gives repeatable draw and fills your yard in an enchantment slot.

Here's some good value cards I've found in my deck building process: Dawnstrider provides repeatable fogs while not really costing you anything once your commander is out. Hermit Druid fills your yard and provides land consistency. Waterfront Bouncer provides repeatable creature bouncing. Silverglade Pathfinder provides repeatable ramp. Hell's Caretaker provides repeatable reanimation. Coiling Oracle is full of value. Siren Stormtamer helps repeatedly keep your creatures safe. Best part about all of these is that they're easy sacrifice fodder once you no longer need the abilities and they work crazy well with Skullclamp, which is easily the best sacrifice engine you can run in this deck.

I love playing Muldrotha because I feel there are so many ways to play her and they're all viable. Hopefully this helps :)

Both Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip and Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip feel like they don't really do much in a superfriends deck, though Lili would be ok if you upped your creature count a bit. Nissa, Worldwaker also feels fairly weak without many forests. Thrummingbird is a great way to tick up your planeswalkers. Nevinyrral's Disk is definitely the best board wipe for a superfriends deck, since it basically destroys all nonplaneswalkers. Fogs get much better in superfriends, since you can protect them long enough to ult. Druid's Deliverance also proliferates, which can help them ult even quicker. Constant Mists is a great repeatable fog, as is Dawnstrider. Sphere of the Suns and Pentad Prism are some great pieces of ramp with Atraxa.

Zidantur Thanks for the +1! I'm not quite sure how to build quad-colour decks since there are so many cards to consider, but green has some great political/underrated cards; Fecundity is a great equalizer most of the time (although it benefits an aristocrats deck way more). Dubious Challenge is a card that I never heard of until recently that is surprisingly good, One with Nature is an underrated favourite of mine especially since you can enchant an opponent's creature and reap the benefits. Pattern of Rebirth is another card that I consider underrated, especially if you are planning on playing any creatures like Sakura-Tribe Elder. Permeating Mass is hilarious IMO and it actually really makes your opponents afraid of attacking you (especially with their commander). Marchesa's Smuggler isn't green but it can definitely help get your commander in for damage. You could also run a lot of copy spells like Progenitor Mimic to make the game a bit more interesting. Brooding Saurian is a great political card if you aren't planning on running any steal spells, since most people like keeping their stuff. Dawnstrider is surprisingly underrated, especially since most of the time it simply prevents people from attacking you when they have a lot of power that could go your way. Finally, Hunted Troll is also a surprisingly good card and is on-theme.

If you want to go full-on group hug (which I wouldn't recommend, but is an option), you could go for stuff like Edric, Spymaster of Trest, Hunted Wumpus, Magus of the Vineyard, Shizuko, Caller of Autumn, Tempting Wurm, Veteran Explorer, Dictate of Karametra, Eladamri's Vineyard, Rites of Flourishing, Collective Voyage, New Frontiers or Weird Harvest. I wouldn't recommend these cards since the whole point of this deck was to move away from group hug while still being political, but you can consider them.

If you wanted to go for a non-group hug politics that still involves being nice, you could buff opponents' creatures with the vows (Vow of Flight for example) and double down with Evolutionary Escalation.

Anyways, I could get a lot of other things that you could do but I don't really want to overload you (especially when I'm kind of just wildly suggesting), but the ideas of these cards are good starting points. You honestly could just ignore all of them and go for green ramp and that would be fine as well, since green doesn't really have many "deal" cards. It's probably good to pick a number representing the amount of "silly" cards you want in the deck and stick with that though, since you don't want to go overboard just because you have another colour to work with.

Hope this helps! Sorry for the wall of text lol, but it could be useful

Just out of curiosity, why don't you include repeat fog type cards like Dawnstrider or Spike Weaver ? They almost always deter opponents from attacking you.

Have you considered Seasons Past? It is a really great card to continue being able to control the board and interacts well with Dawnstrider and other discard outlets.
