Creature — Elephant
When Terastodon enters the battlefield, you may destroy up to three target noncreature permanents. For each permanent put into a graveyard this way, its controller puts a 3/3 green Elephant creature token onto the battlefield.

Thanks for the comment!
Terastodon and Crux of Fate are very recent additions. I'm not really sure if deck needs second wrath besides Damnation. Toxic Deluge is clearly better than Crux, it's just matter of budget. Same goes for Assassin's Trophy. Terastodon is in the deck not as removal, but as late game alternative threat which you don't afraid to tap out with. I also love utility like blowing out Mana Crypt / Necropotence that is going to kill you.
I thought about adding something like Emrakul, the Promised End as late game threat, still thinking about it.
Probably if I'm running Terastodon I should run something like Animate Dead. Btw, Eldritch Evolution is really good in this deck if I run Terastodon and both drake/deadeye, that is a good thing to consider.
Forbidden Orchard is a bit ambitious. The deck is really trying to control everything, and it aggresively uses life as resource without any way to restore it, and dying to mediocre beats for 1/1 is not a impossible scenario.

Forbidden Orchard is good mana fixing and can help creature creatures for Reality Shift if you lose access to Beast Within. I would also recommend swapping Crux of Fate with Toxic Deluge - it's a much stronger wrath.
Terastodon seems really expensive here - Assassin's Trophy is a lot cheaper for the same kind of removal. Or at least add Eldritch Evolution as you can get it via Tasigur (side note, EE should be in the deck as it can also fetch Nezahal and Sphinx from Tas).

Not a boardwipe, but Terastodon is decent multi-targeted removal in monogreen.

No worries, I can definitely help you out here. My main deck is a reanimator based one so I can definitely suggest you some cards to help you out. For Muldrotha since you have access to Sultai colors you have a great amount of synergy to work from your graveyard. Especially for Muldrotha itself, you will be able to play one of each permanent. There is a combo route or value route you can go for, since it is cheaper to go the value way I'll list some cards that can help you that way.
The key aspect for Muldrotha is that it can play permanents from the grave, this gives you advantage over the other players is breaking parity. You don't mind stuff going into the grave as you can play it later on when Muldrotha is online. The cards listed below should be less than $5 and would greatly strengthen your deck.
Creatures: Plaguecrafter, Satyr Wayfinder, Reclamation Sage, WORLDSHAPER!, Acidic Slime, Mulldrifter, Underrealm Lich, Spore Frog, Viscera Seer, Ramunap Excavator, Deathrite Shaman, Notion Thief, Terastodon, Zulaport Cutthroat, Protean Hulk
This is only a small handful of the many cards that can be run, basically you want to abuse as many ETB effects and use cheap ones that you can reuse every turn.
Another way to abuse your graveyard more is reanimation effects, here is some budget effects that can be added in to bring stuff out of the grave. It also helps that if it's a permanent so even if it's in the grave Muldrotha can still use it.
Card draw is another aspect that is essential, there are quite a bit of interesting ones that we can use to either fill our hand our fill our graveyard as well.
Lastly is the ramp, we want to lessen the amount of instants/sorceries we play and more permanents so artifact mana seems to be the way to go alongside creature based ETB ramp.
Hope that gives a little more insight and feel free to ask any questions!

So I commented on this deck over 6 months ago and now I saw it on the feed so... Imma do it again. And Imma be more specific this time. Let's start with cuts.
Bane of Progress is not great. If all goes well you'll absolutely be hitting your own enchantments and artifacts.
Gray Merchant of Asphodel is not anything exceptional in this brew. Yeah his ETB is really strong but it draws a ton of hate and you don't seem to have many ways of subverting or withstanding that hate.
Greenwarden of Murasa is really mana-costly. 6 mana for an eternal witness effect? Pass.
It That Betrays is really bad. Better when you can reanimate it, but still unless your opponents are running aristocrats or you're forcing them to sac things (and yeah I know It does that but that's not enough), really bad. Oh yeah, and that thing I said with Gray Merchant about drawing hate? That.
Lord of Extinction's lack of trample makes him pretty meh.
Massacre Wurm is pretty meta-dependent. If your buddy runs weenies he's decent but if not...
Mycoloth is great, but the 5-mana slot is competitive.
Pathbreaker Ibex honestly doesn't seem that great. Most he's giving your guys is +5 unless you find Lord of Extinction.
Terastodon is really cool and all, but it does have one huge drawback... You can EITHER repeat the etb OR have it as a beater. And for 8 mana, repeating the etb is not enough.
Greater Good is great when you have larger creatures than this deck does. As it is it's just gonna make you discard a bunch of cards, probably.
Torment of Hailfire gives your opponents something you don't want them having: choice. They'll just sac a bunch of useless crap or discard lands. Without steps to limit their options, it's not a great card.
So I looked at your maybeboard and holy crap dude, you need to put some of those in. Night Incarnate, Whisper, Blood Liturgist, Savra, Queen of the Golgari, Craterhoof Behemoth, I'm actually adding the first two to my brew now. Thanks for the ideas, sorry for stealing them.
Now Imma give you some card suggestions.
You forgot Fleshbag Marauder when you got the rest of the edict gang!
Thragtusk is pretty underrated in aristocrats.
As is Treasure Keeper, but that's less good in your deck since you have a really high mana curve.
Vindictive Lich gives you options!
Wall of Blossoms is good protection and a draw!
Hell's Caretaker is reanimation and a sac outlet.
Phyrexian Delver is also good reanimation.
Attrition is excellent removal.
Perilous Forays is an awesome card for this deck, I love it.
Quagmire Druid isn't the greatest ever, but it's enchantment removal.
Sadistic Hypnotist can play the long game, run opponents out of resources.
Thoughtpicker Witch can screw combo.
Vraska, Golgari Queen is an epic sac outlet and the ult is perfect for this deck.
Entomb is legendary.
Grim Flayer is great card advantage.
Fauna Shaman is like Entomb but better maybe?
Underrealm Lich is good card advantage.
Thank you for coming to my ted talk.

Some budget cards I would recommend would be Carrion Feeder, Viscera Seer, Eternal Witness (Skullwinder cheaper alternative), Fleshbag Marauder, Merciless Executioner, Wood Elves, Underrealm Lich, Pattern of Rebirth, Grisly Salvage, Animate Dead, Skullclamp, Terastodon, Manglehorn
There are plenty of good cheap cards that Meren can use, lemme know if ya like other advice!
