Salut le gros!
Tel que promis, voici ma review:
1st LES LANDS
Selon mon point de vue, je trouve que tu as trop de lands tapped dans la liste, perso je coupe :
- Castle Locthwain , Evolving Wilds , Foreboding Ruins , Game Trail , Rakdos Carnarium , Smoldering Marsh , Temple of Abandon , Temple of Malady , Temple of Malice , Temple of the False God , Terramorphic Expanse , Woodland Cemetery , Ancient Tomb
Nul besoin de t"expliquer que le plus important c"est le mana base, avoir des lands qui te donne tes 3 couleurs est selon moi, beaucoup plus important que d"avoir une land tel que Ancient Tomb , aussi tu aura besoin de utility lands pour ta synergy. Voila pourquoi je te suggere :
- Volrath's Stronghold , Command Tower , City of Brass , Mana Confluence , Reflecting Pool , High Market et aussi plus de Basics (au moin 5 de chaques)!
Je vois 2 solutions ici qui sont facilement exploitable :
C"est une creature qui coute pas grand chose, facile a ramener du grave et qui combo avec plusieurs demons different et aussitot que nimporte quel creature meurt ton commander trigger pour un max de token.
Mikaeus, the Unhallowed
Aussi cte dude la! Imagine sa double TOUT tes death trigger a cause du undying, double aussi tout les tokens, que tu pourrai aussi vouloir doubler encore plus avec des cartes comme Parallel Lives , Doubling Season et cie.

Here's my own take on the Budget Anje We're All Mad Here (budget cEDH). I'm not really a fan of cards like Rakdos Carnarium because it really slows down your decks tempo, so if you swap that out for something like Dragonskull Summit you might be better served.
A nice budget include can be Elixir of Immortality , which can help you recoup your graveyard if you discard too aggressively etc.
Personally I found this deck more effective when the discard theme was more self-directed, but whatever flavor you prefer is obviously best. If we can get your CMC closer to 3 or even lower it will be a lot more consistent and competitive.

In my decks I'm showing Darkwater Catacombs , Boros Garrison , Cavern of Souls , Caves of Koilos , Dragonskull Summit , Evolving Wilds , Rakdos Carnarium , Sunbaked Canyon , Vault of the Archangel , Chromatic Lantern , Anointed Procession , Butcher of Malakir , and Cordial Vampire all as illegal in EDH. Also, the new cards from C19 have not yet been updated for legality, but since the official release is today that isn't terribly surprising.

Times are changing!
With Modern Horizons, now seems like the time to make a few key changes to hopefully not only improve the consistency of the deck but also add in a few new fun tools.
Old and busted:
Squandered Resources : I can see why this is appealing in the mass land destruction or fast mana decks, but honestly it didn't play out great in this build because the finishers aren't exactly that fast, or a few extra mana is unlikely to change the outcome (one or two Cabal Coffers + Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth is usually enough, and not only that, far more consistent with searching effects).
Luxury Suite : The mana base is slowly taking the desired shape, as before it was very much mirrored on all three colours with very few red or black cards. I've found consistently that a R/B untapped source is underwhelming and does very little to help ramp out early game and there is an oversaturation of fixing already present.
Rakdos Carnarium : Same issue as above, I used to feel that the third bounceland for the bounce effect was enough, but looking at the results I feel like this is an easy cut, the R/B fixing is good enough in this deck to not need to warrant another.
Drownyard Temple : while it may seem an easy addition, the effect has been lacklustre, at best a sac outlet for The Gitrog Monster or Glacial Chasm at best, but that doesn't feel like a consistent or effective gameplan.
Nurturing Peatland : G/B mana fixing, draw a card, easy include.
Mina and Denn, Wildborn : Am testing this out mainly because unlike Wayward Swordtooth it has a secondary ability that may be of use for interactions like protecting Glacial Chasm from removal, while also allowing a second landfall trigger if needed or simply as a way to pitch a land to Lord Windgrace ticking up.
Wrenn and Six : I'm big on this planeswalker in this particular build because Exsanguinate , Torment of Hailfire , Splendid reclaimation, Hour of Promise , Windgrace's Judgement and Scapeshift are all prime targets for recursion with retrace. The tick up is relevant, and the tick down...well like Lord Windgrace 's ultimate we'll just forget about that one and move on.
I have a good feeling about all these changes, let me know if there are any changes you would also suggest ( Tectonic Reformation was on the cards, but can't see another good target to cut and am unsure whether it is just another situational enchantment).
The land base has gone down for 42 to 41, but this should not massively effect the consistency of land drops.

New day, new thoughts!
After mulling over War of the Spark for some time I think that some minor improvements can be made to the deck with at least one of the new utility lands and perhaps a new creature. For your consideration:
Blast Zone : Difficult to interact with, potential mana sink, fantastic target for recursion, good political card. Main point against is that if you use this to replace a coloured source of mana this does increase the likelihood of those disappointing off colour starts. Originally I was considering Sheltered Thicket as a potential cut but also Rakdos Carnarium has become increasingly apparent as just another bounce effect rather than having a mana-fixing angle. Another potential cut is Drownyard Temple as while in theory it may seem like a no-brainer inclusion based upon the card text alone, I can barely count on one hand the number of times this has actually been an effective play apart from possibly ramping a single land.
Evolution Sage : I was skeptical and remain so that this has much of a place in the deck as the only effective target would be proliferating on Lord Windgrace which I don't think is a solid enough reason to justify any cuts to make this inclusion.
Squandered Resources : I don't think you can really justify this in the full 100 anymore as often it has ended up as a pitch to windgrace or desperation sac outlet instead of trying to find an actual win condition. In terms of enabling big mana, it seems far more reliable to go on the search for Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth + Cabal Coffers because at least you can copy Cabal Coffers with Thespian's Stage and Vesuva whereas Squandered Resources is a one-and-done type investment unless you have the Splendid reclaimation in hand. I think this may be the cut to try out Mina and Denn, Wildborn .
Rakdos Carnarium , Sheltered Thicket and Luxury Suite : I think the deck has been leaning a little too heavily on rounding out the mana base when it has been progressively moving away from red. I believe that one of these is a prime cut prospectively for Nuturing Peatland when Modern Horizons drops and also for Blast Zone .
