Host Creature — Elemental
When Night Incarnate leaves the battlefield, all creatures get -3/-3 until end of turn.
Evoke (You may cast this spell for its evoke cost. If you do, it's sacrificed when it enters the battlefield.)
Night Incarnate Discussion

I think you got way too much instants/sorceries. Try to cut them down to the minimum and replace them with similar effects on permanents.
But in general: what does the deck try to do? Should it be control or combo oriented?
As some general suggestions: Muldrotha draws a lot of attention and is a preferred target for removal. Your Counterspells are nice but only one-shots. Try to get some stuff like Diplomatic Immunity , Curator's Ward and good old greaves to protect her. Command Beacon should be an auto-include since it allows you to cast your commander always for 6 mana only. Siren Stormtamer counters bojuka bog or tormods crypt like effects. Spore Frog is an allstar vs Aggro. Night Incarnate is a nice option to control token/weenie players. Some sac outlets like Phyrexian Tower or Greater Good would be nice. Also your Lilly of the veil isn’t a good choice here. Liliana, Death's Majesty does way more for your gameplan.
I play Muldrotha since release now and got a pretty well tuned list online here. Take a look if you want to. I bet you get some nice inspiration.

Yo WarriorMagic, based on the list you sent me it seems like you want to go with the value route. Is there a particular budget that you have in mind? Muldrotha has access to a plethora of colors, I can help you get like a defined list of core cards and packages that would be great and than you can add in your particular flair that you like to make it more personalized for your meta or style.
Right away from what I can see these are already a list of cards you can cut due to inefficiency.
- Dimir Locket
- Golgari Locket
- Kodama's Reach
- Splendid Reclamation
- Jarad's Order
- Final Parting
- Vessel of Nascency
- Secrets of the Dead
- The Eldest Reborn
- Journey to Eternity Flip
- Deadbridge Chant
- Ash Barrens
- Blighted Woodland
- Azusa, Lost but Seeking
- Butcher of Malakir
- Hydroid Krasis
- Izoni, Thousand-Eyed
- Underrealm Lich
- Night Incarnate
- Priest of Forgotten Gods
- Sidisi, Brood Tyrant
- Perpetual Timepiece
- Yavimaya Elder
- Liliana, Death's Majesty
Cut these cards away first so we can see the deck in a 100 cards first than we can work from there~

At first glance I think you’d be fine cutting any of these, mostly because their various effects are all already represented by other, better cards in the deck.
Haven’t had enough time to fully digest this list yet as I’m at work right now, so I’ll take another look when I get home tonight and see if I can’t find anything else I think you could pull out.

Command Beacon seems the most important one. Things like Spore Frog and Treachery come to mind. Also stuff like Night Incarnate may help to control the board. Stuff like Curator's Ward and Diplomatic Immunity really help to keep your commander on the board. For your Second Chance combo you should add ways to bring your life below 6 life on the opponents endstep, Necropotence and similar cards could help with that a lot. There are also some more expensive combos that may win you the game. Lion's Eye Diamond , Necromancy and Phantasmal Image form a combo to play all your permanents from your grave in a single turn and generate infinite colored mana the same time. All 3 are fetchable with Intuition and it doesn’t matter which one you get to your hand.
If you haven’t seen it already you may like to have a look at my Muldrotha list. Not a budget version but you will find a lot of cheap cards that really do great things with Muldrotha.

Sadly Primeval Titan is not Commander legal.
For keeping trample up, Thunderfoot Baloth
And a catchall recommendation - Beast Within , very flexible in that it can take out any problematic permanent. It seems like more than a fair trade to be able to take out a planeswalker at instant speed.

@apohl13, if you're playing in a multiplayer group, then you should be able to leverage the other players' threats to redirect attacks towards them. I've played against a lot of token decks, and typically I can either tutor for an answer with Goblin Matron or Moggcatcher , or I can beat them out by racing to one of my combos.
If you're playing 1v1 or just facing a lot of token aggro, here are some additional protection/hate pieces to help you manage your meta:
Goblin Chainwhirler - one-sided ping effect to remove your opponents' token fliers (assuming they aren't buffed)
Judith, the Scourge Diva - additional pings for all of your sacs
Pentavus - provides fliers of your own
Night Incarnate - board wipe that can be repeatedly called on, though it will kill most of your things too
Hopes that gives you some good ideas!

Hmm, some good points here hkhssweiss
I usually like In Garruk's Wake because it's asymmetrical, but you pointing it out made me go "wait, I want my creatures to die!"
Cleansing Nova was in here mainly for artifacts and enchantments since has trouble dealing with them, but I suppose I have a few ways to deal with them. If worse comes to worse odds are good that someone else will deal with the threat.
I guess I do already have cards like Krav, the Unredeemed that are better.
Thran Dynamo was a card that I was thinking about, but I agree that I could do without it.
Seraph of the Scales was in here mainly for the afterlife and possibility for deathtouch, but I agree that it's lackluster.
I guess Thrilling Encore is a bit expensive
Maybe one day you will be in a deck Storm Herd . One day . . .
I suppose there are better ways than Nomads' Assembly
I do like the death trigger on Ancient Stone Idol and that fact that its cost can be reduced. A card to consider taking out though
I'm definitely on the edge about Knight of the Last Breath . On one hand it has afterlife and can be a sac outlet, but on the other it's stats are kind of bad.
I feel like Helm of the Host can do good by cloning creatures with death triggers. (My goal is to make a ton of Elenda, the Dusk Rose 's. But I live in Magical Christmas Land most of the time, so who knows if that will happen).
I really appreciate this. Both you and DrkNinja have brought up good points that have really sped this process along!
