I would caution against making anything so close to a new commander set coming out. With that out of the way here are my thoughts.
In His Belly is a deck I built recently that seems to be rather explosive. It doesn't do much early game but set up a large creature to eat Grothama, All-Devouring like Mossbridge Troll and you draw a quarter of your deck. Lay down Myojin of Life's Web and then half your hand and you should win there. If not that 10/8 is ready to come back and with a slight buff will 2 shot players out of the game.
Divine Decree I'm suggesting this one simply because it is my favorite deck and I designed it to work slowly while protecting itself. It doesn't really matter what my opponents bring to the field because Her Highness, Queen Marchesa, is bringing an answer. The variety of pillows in this deck seems to be able to hold off most strategies plus lifegain makes it really hard on the decks that do get around the pillows. Usually wins by a combo or by Revel in Riches but Manabarbs and Painful Quandary and friends sure do put a hurt on everyone. I get a lot of joy out of playing this deck because I don't have to answer every threat, "you played Phage the Untouchable?, that's cool. can you pay 8 mana to attack me?" is a scenario that comes up often.
Mistress of Poisons is likely the most competitive deck I've built which is why I stopped playing it. With some more tutors you could consistently combo off rather early. I had several games where I won turn 4. If anyone stops the combos they better hope they don't rely on creatures, even the indestructible ones will wither away rather quickly.

Great deck! I love Green Stompy decks. I would recommend Elvish Piper, Myojin of Life's Web, and Overwhelming Stampede. If you would like some other ideas, check out my Omnath, Locus of Creature Ramp deck!
+1 from me!

PunkJkr3 It isn't a bad idea but so far what happens is I get Mossbridge Troll or something else large, fight my commander, draw a bunch, then play Myojin of Life's Web, then get every creature in hand for free which usually wins the game next turn. I did kill one person with commander damage in a game but Grothama has really just been a ridiculous draw spell for the most part. Also the only ways to give Grothama double strike in mono green I can think of are equipment which I already have a lot of. Still worth thinking about, thanks.
And thank you to everyone that has upvoted and commented.

Also, as an after thought, there's no better way to cheat creatures than Myojin of Life's Web, it's even repeatable if you have a That Which Was Taken. However that is a lot more setup with a higher chance to be targeted than the current spells you're using.

Hey, thanks for the suggestions and the upvotes!
@Atuva and SirSh4ggy: Ramos, Dragon Engine has high upside if its ability gets going, but he will be too slow in the deck without further support, I expect. That's because there are relatively few multicolored spells and the cmc of the deck is rather high (even with the alternative cost from Jodah). And I don't want to put cards like Doubling Season in the deck only for Ramos. It would be great if somebody pointed out a way to include Ramos, Dragon Engine into the Grozoth combo (searching him out with Dragonstorm wouldn't do much yet).
@SirSh4ggy: Maelstrom Wanderer doesn't hit most of the powerhouses in the deck, so I didn't include it, but Unexpected Results seems cool because it either ramps or has a chance on hitting the powerhouses (and I play few counterspells) - cool addition!
Quicksilver Amulet and company won't let me use the cast triggers of my creatures, so they're not optimal. But Defense of the Heart is a tutor at least and can search something like Dragonlord Kolaghan + Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre which is nice. And Elvish Piper could maybe replace Myojin of Life's Web.
@Spoosky: Akroma's Memorial is a good idea! A lot of my creatures have no evasion at all and this will give them all kinds of evasion. If testing shows that my threat density is more than enough, then I'll try to find room for the memorial.

Thanks for the feedback! You've made several suggestions I agree with entirely, some I think are on point but need a few tweaks, and some I disagree with. I'll break it down card by card:
First, you're totally right about Army of the Damned, it's not as good in this deck as it is elsewhere. I've found it generally underwhelming every time I've drawn it, and I've never grabbed it off a tutor. Deploy to the Front is an excellent suggestion. Not only does it generally produce more value, but it helps me stabilize if I have a rough early game, something army is notoriously bad for. I'll put it on the acquireboard tonight. Ezuri's Predation and Horncaller's Chant seem a little low impact however. As for Divergent Transformations, that's a hilarious card I've never seen before. Chaos warping two things can be great, but I feel like my current draw, cheating, and removal effects are so much better that they outweigh the utility value of the card. I'll have to think about it more, however.
Spawning Grounds is card I saw when doing research for my deck and decided was too cute. It's painfully slow, as you mentioned, and I'd rather just be drawing cards in the lategame when I have the mana to cast whatever I want, since my cards almost always beat 5/5s.
I think you're underestimating the disgusting value I can get with Myojin of Seeing Winds. It draws me a card for EVERY PERMANENT I CONTROL. Even lands. It has yet to draw me less than 15 cards. The 3/3 sucks but I'd never play it for the body. Honestly the only reason I might drop it is I'd have a couple games where I couldn't use it because it'd deck me, but when my board's that developed it's a win-more situation anyway. While you're right that Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur is easy to remove and gives advance warning, it also draws me 7 cards, which is major gas. That's why I generally play it on my turn rather than abuse the flash ability. The discard on my opponents is just icing on the cake if I can make it happen. I also consider discard a form of resource denial, and I'm concerned going all in on making my friends dump their hands will lose me said friends.
Now on to All Suns' Dawn. Ooh boy. I think you underestimate the ability of the card to recur things besides my creatures (bring back Conflux for maximum degeneracy points), but I also have yet to use it for the amazing value it theoretically provides. Being unable to grab colorless cards is a bigger downside in this deck than it should be in 5 colors, but it is what it is. I may be cutting it. Debtors' Knell is another card I've never seen before, and I think I need more time to evaluate it. Theoretically, the payoff is insane, but I fear it may suffer the same issues as Dawn currently does. It definitely merits testing.
Baneful Omen is great synergy, but I feel it's a bit slow and not all that impactful, even when I hit cards like Progenitus. It's also outclassed (in my opinion) by similar cards: I'd sooner run my Twilight Prophet for the added lifegain and draw. I'll have to consider more if effects like that are strong enough for the slots they'd occupy. Definitely an interesting suggestion.
You're right, Grozoth isn't a huge play, especially since I've been cutting Grozoth targets left and right. It may be out of the deck soon, despite the wonderful "That's a card?" reactions I get with it. However, consider it's a 9/9 blocker too, and that I can get Myojin of Life's Web with it to vomit cards from my hand right after the draw.
I LOVE Cruel Entertainment, but for some reason it never occurred to me to add it to this deck. It'll probably go in with the next edit. Great suggestion!
That's where I am right now, but you've given me a lot to think about, and I might develop new opinions about a lot of your points as I consider them. Definitely appreciate the feedback!
