Your lands could use some improvement too: Stomping Ground , Wooded Foothills , Command Tower , Reliquary Tower , Temple of the False God , Cinder Glade , Game Trail , Fire-Lit Thicket , Karplusan Forest , Temple of Abandon , Rootbound Crag , Kessig Wolf Run , Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx , Spire Garden , and Copperline Gorge are all easy additions

Take a 2nd look at your land base. You run expensive fetches like Scalding Tarn but also super budget lands like Kazandu Refuge or Temple of Abandon . I'd just replace those two with basics and also cut the Evolving Wilds . For a 2 color deck you shouldn't need that much fixing and you run plenty.

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.

First thing I'll suggest additions
- mana ramp: Lotus Cobra - land etb you add one mana of any color - pushes your ramp faster
Amulet of Vigor - if a permanent you control etbs tapped, untap it. Not only ramps you faster, but gets past those pesky all your things come in tapped crud.
Exploration - you may play an additional land each turn, only . Very few things are more satisfying than having 7 lands turn 3 while everyone else is just putting down their third land.
Boundless Realms - search for as many basic lands as lands you control
Scapeshift - search for as many lands (basic or not) as you sacrifice
Kodama's Reach - you need a bunch of ramp spells to act with in case you don't have lord windgrace or he becomes too expensive to cast
Demonic Tutor - search your library for a card
Vampiric Tutor - search your library for a card
Beseech the Queen - search your library for a card
Summoner's Pact - pay or lose at your upkeep
Chord of Calling - search for or less CMC creature
Tooth and Nail - search for two creatures or put two creatures onto the battlefield from your hand
Rude Awakening - all lands you control become 2/2 creatures or you untap all lands or both
three of the five panoramas: The other two only fetch you one of the lands
Jund Panorama - search for any of the three basic land types you need
Grixis Panorama - search for swamp or mountain
Naya Panorama - search for mountain or forest
three of the temples:
Temple of Malady - BG scry 1.
Temple of Malice - BR scry 1.
Temple of Abandon - GR scry 1.
Things to do with
Fireball - x damage to creature or player
Crater's Claws - x damage to creature or player
Rolling Thunder - x damage to creature or player - can do more targets
Banefire - x damage to creature or player
Bonfire of the Damned xx to do x damage to tgt player and each creature he controls
Torment of Hailfire - choice of losing 3 life, sacrifice a nonland permanent, or discard a card - hilarious for huge numbers of x, and can swing the game beyond anyone recovering
Consume Spirit - x loss of life and x gain of life for you
Suffer the Past - x loss of life for x exiled cards from tgt player's graveyard. Kills their recursion and them
Dark Salvation - xx for x zombies and making a creature -x/-x until end of turn.

If you got the Sultai C19 precon then you have Seedborn Muse and it's repeatable untap effect is very good here because it can untap lands on each opponents' turns.
Budget cards ($2 or less each) to consider adding:
- Cinder Glade : Wood Elves , Yavimaya Dryad and Mountain Valley can fetch this land.
- Sheltered Thicket : same as Glade.
- Hanweir Battlements : haste enabler.
- Game Trail
- Naya Panorama
- Temple of Abandon

Welcome to TappedOut :)
Nice start for a budget deck, but it needs more focus on Elementals. You're best cards here are not green they're red Chandra, Awakened Inferno and Cavalier of Flame . The problem is you've made a primary green deck and plugged your two best red cards into it which doesn't work. Both Chandra and especially Cavalier need lots of red in the manabase to support them, to cast them and you don't have this here.
A playable manabase is the hardest part of a deck to get right with such a low budget for this reason consider only one color? Either mono green or mono red? A mono colored deck only has to use one type of basic land therefore don't have to worry about playing dual lands for the second color. Since your two best cards here are red then consider mono red?
Obviously mono red will be a different deck than you have here and would require adding lots of budget red cards. Mono green wouldn't, but mono green wouldn't let you play Chandra or Cavalier. My advice is go with mono red since there's several good budget (less than $1 each) red Elementals in Modern to choose from: Smokebraider , Incandescent Soulstoke , Obsidian Fireheart .
For your current Gruul deck, if you don't like the idea of playing only one color, but wanting to keep two colors then focus on improving the manabase with more red sources. Add 4x Evolving Wilds , 2x Terramorphic Expanse , 1x more Gruul Guildgate or upgrade Guildgate to 4x Temple of Abandon ? The scry 1 is helpful when you play a dual land that ETB (enters the battlefield) tapped. Add Unclaimed Territory especially if you add more red Elementals since it can be make any color of mana to cast an Elemental.
Consider expanding on the Elemental strategy and less +1/+1 counters strategy? Consider building around the idea of ramp with Leafkin Druid and Smokebraider ? Grove Rumbler is a budget Elemental to considering ramping into. Rumbler is a creature to put counters on because it has trample and it gets a pump of power each time you play a land, +4/+4 until end of turn when you play and sac Evolving Wilds /Expanse in the same turn.
Smokebraider is the most powerful ramp creature for Elementals; it's budget and is an upgrade for Chandra's Embercat if using two colors. Incandescent Soulstoke is a budget anthem for Elementals and can cheat one onto the battlefield which has interaction with my next suggestion. Soul of the Harvest is a budget Elemental to ramp into and an upgrade for Vorstclaw and Wakeroot Elemental . A 6/6 with trample for six mana and it's ability to draw you a card whenever a nontoken creature you control ETB is good.
Cheat Soul onto the battlefield with Soulstoke for two mana; attack with a 7/7 Elemental with haste/trample. Not having to pay the six mana to cast Soul gives other mana to use to cast creatures to draw for the turn which is good with Smokebraider and Leafkin. The two mana that Smokebraider can make to cast an Elemental is good to ramp into Soul as well as can pay for Soulstroke or Cavalier of Flame 's activated abilities.
Example of budget ramp Gruul Elementals base (keeping several cards you already have):
- 4x Leafkin Druid
- 4x Smokebraider
- 4x Incandescent Soulstoke
- 4x Grove Rumbler
- 4x Soul of the Harvest
- 2x Chandra's Embercat
- 3x Pollenbright Druid
- 2x Overgrowth Elemental
- 1x Seed Guardian
- 1x Cavalier of Flame
- 1x Chandra, Awakened Inferno
- 5x empty spots for other cards.
The Elemental core of this example is:
- 4x Leafkin
- 4x Smokebraider
- 4x Soulstoke
- 4x Rumbler
- 4x Soul
Leafkin and Smokebraider are the ramp. Rumber and Soul are the creatures to ramp into.
Manabase for this example:
- 6x Forest
- 5x Mountain
- 4x Evolving Wilds
- 2x Terramorphic Expanse
- 4x Temple of Abandon
- 2x Unclaimed Territory
- 1x Flamekin Village : haste can be helpful, letting an Elemental attack the turn it ETB.
This example would add $10 to your current deck cost of $35. I offer more advice. Good luck with your deck.

I'd look at skewing things towards more creatures- mainboarding servants, cutting the number of Increasing Savagery / Bioshift / Forced Adaptationfor cards like
Deeproot Champion Merfolk Branchwalker Feral Hydra Grim Initiate Mistcutter Hydra Pollenbright Druid Quirion Dryad Runaway Steam-Kin Scrounging Bandar Stromkirk Noble Simic Initiate Vastwood Hydra Young Wolf
Keeping your creature count high massively increases the reliability of lists like this without breakning the bank. I'd also look at Temple of Abandon , Magma Jet , Cream of the Crop and Thunderous Wrath - the red and green miracles are really good with a little support, especially maindeck noxious.

Copperline Gorge and the other "fastlands" seem really suboptimal in a deck with such a high curve. I'd recommend the scrylands ( Temple of Abandon and others) over them to help smooth out your draws, which are also much cheaper.
