Some options to consider to fit the monkey theme: Monkey Cage - Starts with M and can make many Ape tokens. Zodiac Monkey - Has Monkey in title. Name Dropping- can use ""gotcha" to get back cards from graveyard with Moneky in title. Urza's Hot Tub - can tutor for your favorite monkey. Pack's Disdain - for removal. Riptide Replicator or Volrath's Laboratory - make monkey tokens. Urza's Incubator - monkeys/apes cost 2 less.
These don't start with M and technically are Apes but there aren't many "monkey" cards. Uktabi Kong, Uktabi Orangutan, Gorilla Berserkers, Gorilla Chieftain, Hidden Gibbons, Treetop Village, Side to Side. You can also try Adaptive Automaton, Brass Herald, Door of Destinies or Obelisk of Urd for a Monkey / Ape "Anthem effects". Belbe's Portal to cheat monkeys into play.
Good luck with your monkey deck

Nice deck! Everyone fears, (or is at least annoyed by) Winter Orb. I've been running 10-Land Stompy since Odyssey Block, so of course I run Wild Mongrel. It not only fills the 2-drop slot, but also serves to utilize extra Land Grant and Elvish Spirit Guide in your hand. I see Bounty of the Hunt on your maybe board which is really good for the same reason. I used to run Vine Dryad, but it's low power disappointed me in such an aggressive deck. Skullclamp is fun to turn elves into cards.
Side board is tough and really depends on the field. My experience is that expensive blue decks win tournaments. So I run 4x Insist on the board. Hidden Gibbons is fun turn one, if you can sneak by Force of Will. Phyrexian Revoker is cheap way for green to interact with the opponent, I even main deck one now. Good luck and have fun!
