Crystal Vein ramps in one turn with Muldrotha out.
Cephalid Coliseum is an excellent draw engine here.
Command Beacon allows you to avoid commander tax on Muldrotha so you never pay more than .
Feel free to check out my list for inspiration. It's one of the top rated Muldrotha lists on this site with plenty of comments to sift through for more ideas. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Muldrotha's Madhouse - No Infinite

Thanks for your positive feedback and the interesting suggestions: Lotus Cobra and Veil of Summer were also in my sights for quite some time and I would like to take them in for a Forest and a more expensive counter (e.g. Disallow). Destiny Spinner fits really well and could maybe replace Song of the Dryads (which sometimes remained useless in my hand). Triumph of the Hordes would really be a simple include as an additional wincon, but in my playgroups we banned Infect ;(
I am not sure about Sylvan Awakening: After a boardwipe it could be a real surprise with Craterhoof Behemoth, but otherwise it feels more like "win more". In the next games I will check if there were situations where it would have turned a game in my favour...

Spidersilk Armor ended up being awesome so far. Very happy with the addition.
I am really not a fan of Song of the Dryads. I don't like how slow it is. I'm also not convinced there's too many commanders that get hit hard by it in our meta (apart from my own, obviously).
Krosan Grip is too much mana. I'm not TOO worried about my removal getting countered currently, or at least not worried enough to slide in K Grip.
I've considered Static Orb and friends before. I've just never really wanted to make this into a primarily-stax deck.

Contamination reads if a land is tapped for mana, then it creates black instead. But if you have no creatures, then it doesn't tap for mana, hence no black replacement effect, unless I misread it?
True, you are definitely more green heavy and contamination would hurt you. Have you considered a Winter Orb/Static Orb, leaning on winter. With winter, mana dorks, rocks, carpet and cradle, you can break parity, or do you think this would fall under the same category of contamination's anti-synergy?
Manglehorn, while limited to artifacts, can help slow down artifact combo and is another source of interaction.
Song of the Dryads - Permanent removal/mess with commanders, particullary black and red who have difficultly removing enchantments.
Krosan Grip - (Almost) uninterruptible removal, or is the 3 mana too steep giving you already run nature's claim?
Spidersilk armor - How has that addition been for you?

Okay, so I am quite fond of brews that are delectation to pilot, but I am beholden to recommend some changes.
Now, Panharmonicon is a fantastic card, but there are only eleven ways to trigger the thing in this deck. Two of those are Draining Whelk and Grave Sifter, so, whilst they may have their moments, they seem lacking for doubling _ETB_s. This is my same opinion for Conjurer's Closet; what value is blinking something? Flameshadow Conjuring is in the same boat. These all become useless far too quickly, save for maybe Risen Reef shenanigans. Bramble Sovereign somewhat falls under the same folly, but I don't believe it to be as narrow.
Another thing to consider is the mana costs of cards. The majority of your curve is at three, which is probably when you would want to cast your commander. Ramp at two mana is far more ideal, as athwart to Keyrunes and Cluestones. I'd cut Temur Banner, Harrow, Gruul Keyrune for Talisman of Curiosity, Talisman of Impulse, and Rampant Growth. Wayfarer's Bauble is also of note. Llanowar Elves, Fyndhorn Elves, and Elvish Mystic each can draw cards off of some of your effects late-game whilst being incredibly effective early.
Pillar of Origins is a fine card, but it only produces mana for elemental, being twenty cards in your deck and the commander. This leaves seven lands with activated abilities and forty-two nonland, non-elemental cards that cannot be used with the Pillar. I would just use Talisman of Creativity.
Seeing as that you have ramp in the command zone, doubling down on card draw seems important. Guardian Project, Beast Whisperer, Garruk, Caller of Beasts, Primordial Sage, and Vanquisher's Banner can draw off of each creature. Kindred Discovery is an especially potent one. Shamanic Revelation and Collective Unconscious each can refill the hand well, but Tishana, Voice of Thunder may just be the best form of this effect.
Specific to your deck, Vivien, Champion of the Wilds just seems lovely.
Seeing the decklist, it seems to have a sparse amount of interaction. Reality Shift, Incubation / Incongruity, Imprisoned in the Moon, Song of the Dryads, Lignify, Pongify, and Rapid Hybridization are some to consider. Kenrith's Transformation even replaces itself.
I run Decimate in every deck I can. It is absolutely amazing and has literally never been lacking.
That shall be all from me!
Good luck and happy casting.

I put together a similar sort of deck the other day. Here are a few of my differences:
- Bronzehide Lion
- Kitsune Mystic Flip is a combat trick
- Krond the Dawn-Clad
- Nomad Mythmaker and Sun Titan for recursion of auras
- Umbra Mystic if you are dealing with board wipes
- Song of the Dryads, Darksteel Mutation and Kenrith's Transformation for board control
- Gift of Immortality is nuts
- Sigil of the Empty Throne is an alternative win con
- Sphere of Safety

Profet93 Nice recommendations, I appreciate you taking the time to look through and leave a comment!
Will definitely be including Karn, the Great Creator somewhere, I'll need to figure out where. You're right, definitely a great backup if Glissa can't make it out. Might go with Kenrith's Transformation, that's a great budget version of the Song of the Dryads you mentioned.
As for Bane of Progress, I completely agree. It's a much better inclusion than Creeping Corrosion and would be a great finisher if Lattice is out. I'm not sure if I see how Eternal Witness is a better choice than Regrowth. I know Witness is a fantastic card, no doubt there. But other than just being a creature I don't know if it takes the spot. (I'll admit, I just think Regrowth is a beautiful looking card).
