WuzzyAF First, thanks for help!
I have played against T2 decks, some modern decks (not so competitive decks) and FF Decks, and works well, but have some problems.
Sorry for my english "/

You said the deck works well so I am assuming you have playtested some, what were you playing against?
The Angel of Condemnation seems a little out of place with your decks goals, and it's unlikely Ajani Goldmane would be alive long enough to warrant the 4 mana spent to cast him. Think about swapping some of your removal over to Path to Exile, its 1 cmc and a modern staple. Your list is almost a "Soul Sister's" variant, minus the Soul's Attendant, so if you are unfamiliar with that deck archtype, give one of the several primers a read because there is a lot of amazing information in them. Keep us updated on any changes you make, and good luck!

Grubbernaut I'm glad you like it! I thought the big butt would make the faithmender a great blocker but it's been 50/50 in testing. Might replace him with Gisela or Kalitas in the 4 drop slot. Thragtusk has been in and out he's really sweet but I've been bouncing around between different 5 drops like Divinity of Pride, Crested Sunmare, and Archangel of Thune.

I like the list man, but I can totally see some sweet upgrades for you (EVEN BUDGET ONES!)
I really like the Extort theme here, but since most extort creatures won't protect you from big scary opponents, I'd recommend playing Crawlspace over Marchesa's Decree since it really stops opponents from getting in hits on you.
While I get that with all the tokens, Altar's Reap is like a Divination, I'd really want to see Well of Lost Dreams in here with all this lifegain you have, as it could make this deck seriously powerful. (If you do play the Well of lost dreams, I sense a Reliquary Tower in your future.
While yes, you can pitch your lands to make a 1/1 every turn, you could just play, I'd say this card should be swapped out for something like Aetherflux Reservoir, which can win you games. (While you are token heavy, Whip of Erebos could also be strong.
I suppose that with enough tokens, Zealous Persecution would be decent, but if you were to play Authority of the Consuls or Blood Artist I think you'd have more success in the life you need to trigger other cards (I could also see Whitesun's Passage getting swapped for another card, but direct lifegain might be goof enough that it works.
Throne of the High City could be fun if you want to continue keeping monarch as a fun theme to have.
If you'd like more suggestions, just let me know buddy ;)

+1 from me!
Divinity of Pride could be an interesting add here, fits the theme but probably too big cmc for it to work fast enough though...

Thank you for the compliments and suggestions! Currently Archangel of Thune and Deathbringer Liege are a bit out of my price range, but they're definitely on my radar if they ever drop in price! I'm leaning towards a few life generators that can activate many times based on tokens and sacrificing, but if that plan ends up not working, I'll definitely keep cards like Divinity of Pride in mind.

Counters and life good sir! Counters and life! +1 Good of you to display such pieces of high quality magic art!
Are you not waiting for the advent of the gracious Archangel of Thune ? She rocks hard. So does Divinity of Pride. You want lifegain for that good old ghost. I see your playing the sacrifice game like you would with Teysa, Orzhov Scion, but your commander is more lifegain oriented I believe. Of course, you do you. But just saying.
If you are more interested in the token/sacrifice gimmick, maybe a Twilight Drover or a Springjack Shepherd could be of help? Also Secure the Wastes and Deploy to the Front. Oh! and I looooove Deathbringer Liege for the mechanics, but also for the art...
Have a nice day/night!

I too have been looking for alternative wincons for Doran but seems to be the aggro route for any big butt strategy. Unforetunately, it starts turning him into more good stuff if you go down that route.
Seems like one could implement more lifegain and win via Felidar Sovereign/ Test of Endurance or Exquisite Blood + Sanguine Bond . Divinity of Pride and co. could do some real work. Ive also seen Doran extort but I just don't think Doran is the best general for that. Karlov would be much better at that sort of deck.
