Seems alright. Few cards seem a bit... odd or like you were trying to replace cards?
I'd recommend removing the following:
- Autumn's Veil: Yisan should be cheating your cards in
- Natural State: Not a huge concern, but seems underwhelming in EDH with most non-mana rocks being 4+
- Jeweled Amulet: With playing mono-green, this seems... meh.
- Tormod's Crypt: ???
- Staff of Domination: By the time this is going off, it's probably just a win-more.
- Seeds of Innocence: There are better mass artifact removal cards that don't grant life for only 1 or 2 more mana (Creeping Corrosion?).
- Carpet of Flowers: Unless your playgroup has a bunch of monoblue players, this isn't going to be super reliable.
- Strip Mine/Ghost Quarter: ???
Some cards I'd recommend are below and some will hopefully help abuse Yisan's verse counter-curve:
- Kodama's Reach
- Rampant Growth
- Skyshroud Claim
- Beastmaster Ascension
- Creeping Corrosion
- Wave of Vitriol
- Baru, Fist of Krosa
- Bellowing Tanglewurm
- Champion of Lambholt
- Citanul Hierophants
- Elder of Laurels
- Essence of the Wild
- Kamahl, Fist of Krosa
- Master of the Wild Hunt
- Nylea, God of the Hunt
- Pathbreaker Ibex
- Thunderfoot Baloth
- Managorger Hydra
- Primeval Protector
- Avenger of Zendikar
- Stonehoof Chieftain
- Bloodspore Thrinax
So many cards... Point being, ramping into Yisan and triggering his ability is awesome, but a moot point if you can't hit anything that does something. But again, I could be completely missing the point of what you're going for, and if so I apologize for the wall of text. It's your deck and you are free to do with it as you please, I just wish you a grand time of obliterating your games.

You need Elder of Laurels for sure, Cryptolith Rite is great ramp for lots of saprolings, so is Chord of Calling I would look into the Worldgorger Dragon + Animate Dead combo with these colors, flicker loops and infinite mana. Idk depends on what you got.

Archetype of Endurance, Elderscale Wurm, Whisperwood Elemental, Soul of the Harvest, Verdant Force, Omnath, Locus of Mana, Primal Surge, Elder of Laurels, Beastmaster Ascension and Bellowing Tanglewurm. Green permanents with growth in power and number, if you play mono green that is definitely their strength.

I've been changing the deck quite a lot to get the budget right so a quick recap of the changes are
Opifex Thanks for all the suggestions! You're coming in with stuff i've never thought of, and that's awesome!
Elder of Laurels seems good, but expensive to use his ability. What would i take out for it?
I've never even heard of Decaying Soil before! That's a clever combo with it too!! I think that if i added that combo i'd need to retool the deck a little more to get the most out of it, like adding the Deathgreeter, Extractor Demon, and Altar of the Brood. I think adding all these cards would weaken the deck overall and i don't run any tutors to find missing combo pieces anyway. I'd have to draw all the pieces naturally, which seems bad imo.
Nether Traitor is an amazing card i wish i had the budget for! i think it fits all the themes i'm going for and has shadow for unblockable beats to boot!
Whisperwood Elemental I just took out. I think it's good, possibly to slow with the amount of tokens it produces but really good in the face of a wrath. I'm still on the fence about this one
Magus of the Abyss is a interesting card. Board control is a good thing and i think i'm warming up to the idea of the card. I just need to find cuts for all these good suggestions i'm getting!!!
carpecanum Thanks for the explaning your card suggestions!
sounds like Curse of the Cabal is the closest thing we now have to Braids, Cabal Minion? I could see politics happening when this card is hanging around in suspend. I'm hoping Wave of Vitriol provides a simliar effect i can more reliabliy cast

If you are going wide Cryptolith Rite, and Elder of Laurels for green. I used to use Pawn of Ulamog and Blood Pet with Decaying Soil to trigger infinite deaths. Deathgreeterand cards that trigger on death like Extractor Demon are good. If you went that route, milling with Altar of the Brood and cards like Animate Dead that let you take from their grave. Great sacrifice fodder: Nether Traitor and Reassembling Skeleton.

One good hit with Tana and Confusion in the Ranks would let you steal every creature on the board.

I like the way your deck is going, but to give you relevant feedback some more information on your context and gameplan would be nice.
In general Bower Passage or Rogue's Passage could help you with being unblockable, considering cards like Mindshrieker or buffed up infest-monsters.
If you're not on a budget Gaea's Cradle would have insane synergie with cards like Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and your creature count.
Otherwise Kamahl, Fist of Krosa or Elder of Laurels may help you to buff your little critters and Teferi's Veil may protect them from eventual boardwipes.
I am currently building a similar deck as you do, with more emphasis on the political side of Edric and exploiting its card-draw. If you are interested, you can have a look at Edric, the Mastermind - Rogue Tribal EDH. Feedback is always appreciated.
