+1 Eternal Witness e wit is broken
+1 Golgari Grave-Troll this is good for flipping your deck over
+1 Life from the Loam this is also good for flipping your deck over, land destruction, but its better with fetches
+1 Scavenging Ooze to fight other graveyard shenanigans
+1 Return to Dust solid 2-for-1
+1 Bane of Progress creeping corrosion but on steroids
-1 Teneb, the Harvester pretty slow card imo but I kinda like it so idk
-1 Gods Willing you don't really care about your creatures dying
-1 Orzhov Enforcer there's better creatures you can play
-1 Sanitarium Skeleton - karador lets you recast cards anyways
-1 Culling the Weak - not a strong enough sac outlet in my opinion

Hi TheLocustDog, thanks for commenting!
You use The Gitrog Monster with Dredge cards (e.g. Golgari Grave-Troll ) and discard effects to dump a lot of your library into your graveyard. You get tons of value out of Muldrotha, the Gravetide this way, but to win, you're looking for Lion's Eye Diamond and Deadeye Navigator , which makes infinite mana in combination with Muldrotha.
With infinite mana, winning the game is pretty trivial. I did it in a pretty roundabout way here: you can combine Eternal Witness with Deadeye Navigator to recur Time Stretch to take all the turns, and attack your opponents with Emrakul, the Promised End . An easier alternative is to just run Walking Ballista .
You could also win with Gitrog + Laboratory Maniac . I chose not to do this because my last deck won with LabMan and I wanted to do something different :)

While I can't recommend what to replace, Golgari Thug , Stinkweed Imp , Shambling Shell , and Golgari Grave-Troll might be interesting for getting stuff into the graveyard with Dredge to then Scavenge or even revive.

Dredge cards are amazing with this commander Golgari Grave-Troll is such a beating and fills the bin quickly.

So I think you probably don’t want 36 lands... frankly, I think you want 33 at most. The reason I say this is that, being green, your deck has access to the best ramp in the game. You should strongly consider running any/all of the following: Llanowar Elves , Elves of Deep Shadow , Fyndhorn Elves , Elvish Mystic , Deathrite Shaman , Birds of Paradise , Arbor Elf , Utopia Sprawl and/or Wild Growth .
You want your creatures to be synergistic with your general and be more than midrange value. I think cards like Mindslicer , which effect the board when sacrificed as well as being a body, are likely a lot better than Wall of Blood , Splinterfright , Rhizome Lurcher , etc. Other creatures to consider for these slots: Stinkweed Imp , Golgari Grave-Troll , Eternal Witness , Entomb , Kokusho, the Evening Star ...
This list could also benefit from more card-drawn. Phyrexian Arena is the classical example, but there’re other good options. I like the Shamanic Revelation in your MB; I suggest considering Night's Whisper , Blood Divination , Life's Legacy , Minions' Murmurs , Syphon Mind and Succumb to Temptation .

Before I get into detail yes I looked at the rulings of the effect but it didn't answer my question. I have Golgari Grave-Troll and Stinkweed Imp chilling in my graveyard and I'm about to start my turn. Can I get both back at once if I have enough cards in my library or do I have to do things one at a time.
