Kicker—Sacrifice a creature. (You may sacrifice a creature in addition to any other costs as you cast this spell.)
Search your library for a basic land card, put that card onto the battlefield, then shuffle your library. If Primal Growth was kicked, instead search your library for two basic land cards, put them onto the battlefield, then shuffle your library.

You can combine sac outlets and sacrifice-based removal with other effects that make your opponents sacrifice creatures, as well, gaining counters for your creatures that survive.
Some popular sac outlets/triggers in these colors include:
- Ashnod's Altar
- Bone Splinters
- Disciple of Bolas
- Doomed Necromancer
- Fleshbag Marauder
- Greater Good
- Grim Backwoods
- High Market
- Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord
- Merciless Executioner
- Phyrexian Altar
- Primal Growth
- Viscera Seer
Then you can also play creatures and effects that cause opponents to sac or give you bonus counters with Marizek.
- Butcher of Malakir
- Catacomb Sifter
- Corpsejack Menace
- Dictate of Erebos
- Grave Pact
- Hardened Scales
- Savra, Queen of the Golgari
Then you can bring those creatures back into play or into your hand to sac again and again with recursive cards.
Meren of Clan Nel Toth is a popular commander for these kinds of decks, as well.
My other ideas are either in Mazirek Counters or its maybeboard. Let me know if I can be of more help :)

chadsansing - I originally ran Corpsejack Menace but ultimately ended up cutting him because he has a cheaper alternative in Winding Constrictor and I found that I had a need for other effects in the deck as well. Certainly not a bad include though. Primal Growth is a good idea, I will look into trying that out. I also have never run High Market but it's worth a look. Thanks for the ideas!

Yay, Mazirek! Working on a similar list here: Mazirek Counters.

Ulasht was one of my first commanders, and is a great inclusion in my current Marath deck!
Some ideas for inclusion would be: Woodland Bellower and his toolbox friends Eternal Witness, Yavimaya Elder, and Reclamation Sage,Vizier of the Menagerie, Spellbreaker Behemoth, Ripjaw Raptor (really fun with Ulasht, because you can hit him a bunch of times and draw a bunch of cards), Ogre Battledriver, and Lifecrafter's Bestiary.
If you're running Omnath (another of my commanders :P ...and Oran-Rief Hydra benefits from this too), I would definitely make sure to include some fetch/ramp options (probably not a bad idea even without him given all your big x-spells...), such as Evolving Wilds, Terramorphic Expanse, Blighted Woodland, Wooded Foothills, Primal Growth, Skyshroud Claim, and Explosive Vegetation (you wouldn't need all of them, but the land ones are easy swap-ins).

Another tutor option if you randomly need it could be Academy Rector, but without a reliable way to get him off like Animal Boneyard, probably not worth the time. There's also Time of Need and Chord of Calling.
Land Tax is great for ramp, though I'm sure it's already been recommended. Primal Growth is also an option, as is Traverse the Ulvenwald
Spectra Ward is nice, though the cost is probably prohibitive for this deck. Speaking of costs, Herald of the Pantheon could help, though the build wouldn't leverage it that well. If against high defense that Sigarda can't break, Bonds of Mortality could be another option besides the exile you already run.
If against high destruction, there's always Karmic Justice, but that probably will never be necessary in duel. Another possible bit of extra insurance, is Greater Auramancy. I know you mentioned countering as a concern. Prowling Serpopard might be a good response.
Only other thing that comes to mind is Nature's Will
Really nice deck!

I play Savra, Queen of the Golgari as my general, but she can be pretty powerful in the 99 as well.

But being that this is green, we should be using things such as, Explosive Vegetation, Kodama's Reach, Cultivate, Rampant Growth, Farseek (this one pulls dual lands, or non forest basic lands), Primal Growth, and Cryptolith Rite.
Could also use enchantments like Exploration to help you get more land out.
