Why didn't you just update your Spring Into Death deck list? There's only like 2 cards different, haha.
Now on to the real meat:
Mikaeus, the Unhallowed Combo
- Turn 1: Play a one drop ramp creature.
- Turn 2: Play Buried Alive and fetch Mike and Triskelion.
- Turn 3: Play Victimize, bring Mike and Trike out and ping infinitely to win.
Or tutor for Defense of the Heart and win the turn after you cast it.
Necrotic Ooze Combo
- Play Buried Alive or Survival of the Fittest.
- Grab and put Triskelion and Phyrexian Devourer into the graveyard, and get Necrotic Ooze into play.
- Make sure Necrotic Ooze gets out last if using Survival to tutor them.
- Remove all cards from your library to burn opponent(s) for the CMC of all cards in your library.
Once it's out, the only thing that can interrupt this is Split Second since you can respond by adding and removing counters.
Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord Combo
This requires some knowledge of how the stack works.
- Exile cards from your library until Phyrexian Devourer's ability is put on the stack.
- In response to the ability, continue exiling cards to beef him up more.
- Still before allowing the sacrifice to resolve, sack him to Jarad to smack your opponents for a ton of damage, similarly to the aforementioned Ooze-combo.
Colorless Mana Combo
- Have/get Ashnod's Altar in play.
- Play Nim Deathmantle.
- Play Grave Titan, pop up two 2/2 tokens.
- Sack the two tokens to Altar, then sack Titan to get a total of six .
- Use 4 of that to make Deathmantle grab Titan back and get you two more tokens
Repeat this as many times as desired, netting 2 colorless mana every loop.

I was thinking maybe Primal Command but card cost might be inconvenient

Looks like you'll have issues with card balance. This deck is 100% dependent on drawing hydras, but you only have 8 in the whole deck. I'd recommend putting more in and/or including some form of creature fetch to make sure you can actually get them when needed. Consider Garruk, Caller of Beasts, Oath of Nissa, Brutalizer Exarch, Chord of Calling, Fauna Shaman, Mwonvuli Beast Tracker, Natural Order, Primal Command, Summoner's Pact, Survival of the Fittest, Tooth and Nail, etc. Some are pretty mana costly, but you've got so much mana ramp going on, they can be manageable anyways.

WhisperingBlade, hey man, all good questions. So as far as the commands go, I NEVER have a time where I hate to see a Primal Command. Austere can be tricky if my opponent has no board state, but the same is true for all wraths. I haven't really had much issue getting the mana to cast either, either. Pulse of Murasa is by far the most synergistic card in the deck. It just does so much. It's also just phenomenal in the current aggro-based metagame. Cream of the Crop I thought was maybe a bit to ambitious when I first played it, but it absolutely shits on the game when I have an active Emeria. It lets me set up my draw every turn. It's also just never irrelevant. Prismatic Omen really helps in the late game, but can be really clunky in the early game as it just doesn't do enough. If this were 3 colors, I would 100% be running 3 of them just for fixing sake, but I like the 2 for now, as I only ever want to draw one. Onto my sideboard choices. Honestly the 1-1 split between Pridemage and Seal is actually because I am still testing to see which I like best. This far, the seal has been putting in work for me, but the seal is not recurrable by Emeria. That's why I want to test extensively with both. Sigarda, Host of Herons should basically say "destroy target Jund/Abzan deck" because that is literally what it does. It's so good in literally any midrange/control matchup as a closer for when they have enough removal to handle Sunny-T. Hope all of this helps you get a little more depth. If you still have any questions, feel free to ask. Thanks!!

Cryptic Command has only been reprinted in the past two Modern Masters sets, which isn't really much when you consider the limited print run off those sets.
All in all, I'm really badly hoping that CC gets reprinted, because I haven't got my playset yet, and it WILL spike back up if it doesn't see another reprint.
Also I'm taking a look at the last land slot remaining between Selenya Guildgate and Simic Guildgate. There's about 13 lands between them legal in Modern. Removing all cards part of a cycle of lands and cards eligible for a reprint, we get Shimmering Grotto and Seraph Sanctuary of which I believe Shimmering Grotto to be the choice here. Of the cycles I omitted, Shelldock Isle, Shizo, Death's Storehouse and Shinka, the Bloodsoaked Keep could be reprinted as a utility land.
But odds are, we'll get Grotto for more mana fixing.

On a more positive subject, the reprints of the Ravnican signets are awesome, as are the three-colored uncommon cards from the Alara block (how tragic that Sedraxis Specter is being downgraded to an uncommon); I am glad that WotC is being serious about having good mana-fixing in this set. I also am glad that WotC chose to avoid reprinting Cryptic Command another time and chose to reprint Primal Command, instead; while primal command is nowhere near as expensive as is cryptic command, due to having been reprinted more frequently, it is good to have variety in the Masters sets.
