Hi, great deck!

This deck looks extremely fun to play!
Couple quick thoughts, in running cards like Ashnod's Altar or Animate Dead, I think Wood Elves or Reclamation Sage would be better overall value when compared to their enchantment equlivents ex. Seal of Primordium, since you get the “enter the battlefield” effect, along with a good ramp target for the altar. Also, those value creatures can serve as a nice speed bump to protect your Planeswalkers.
In that same vein, cheap “draw a card” creatures like Wall of Blossoms would be on theme since they can protect you in the early game, or cycle and protect a Planeswalker in the late game. Basically, those cards are never a dead draw.

Of course you can! I'm just afraid there's no way to really be competitive in your meta doing that.
Let's break this down: Atraxa, Praetors' Voice is your commander. She has to be to give you the color identity to play her, so Muldrotha, the Gravetide and Stuffy Doll are in your 99. In 4 colors, on a budget, you're going to be running many taplands and any rock/dork that gives you "any color." Flexibility comes at the expense of output, which hurts the odds of you having enough of the right kind of mana to cast any given card during the first 5 turns.
We're building towards infect. With that in mind, let's look at Stuffy Doll. Stuffy Doll doesn't have infect, it must be given infect, so Stuffy Doll is dependent. There are 6 cards in the game that can give a creature infect; Glistening Oil kills Stuffy Doll, Tainted Strike and Triumph of the Hordes are one-shots, and Corrupted Conscience is a waste on your own creatures. That leaves you with 2 ways in a 99 card deck to give Stuffy Doll infect.
Assume best case scenario: you've tutored (expensive or slow) or drawn into Stuffy Doll, Grafted Exoskeleton, and the mana to play Atraxa, Praetors' Voice. Let's go one further and assume you've curved out perfectly with an opening Sol Ring. Grafted drops on turn 2, Stuffy on 3, Atraxa and equip/swing with Stuffy on 4. Let's also assume your opponents have no walls or other chump blockers to diminish Stuffy's effectiveness.
With this 4 card combo you've managed to put 4 poison counters on a single opponent, and you're tapped out with 4 cards in your hand having destroyed nothing. Most decks with 2 specific cards they've built around, their commander, and optimal circumstances can truly blow out the game. Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon on his own can put 4 poison counters on someone and he gets around Wall of Blossoms.
Pariah only adds to Stuffy Doll's fundamental problem. Stuffy Doll sets up a choice; your opponent is always going to choose what's best for them, and on its own the consequences Stuffy Doll sets up are really underwhelming. Your opponent can play Desolation Twin but you can't force them to attack into Stuffy Doll or to block Stuffy Doll without committing and depending on more cards like Lure or Bident of Thassa. Even then they'll have choices, it just makes them a little worse. All Pariah does is limit the choice of who they attack.
On top of it all Pariah and Shield are dead draws if you don't have Stuffy Doll. The most they'll do without Stuffy is buy you a turn at the cost of whatever creature that likely could've just blocked and given the same result.
Now we come to the plan of using Muldrotha, the Gravetide to recast a sacrificed Stuffy Doll to change its target. This is using a 6 drop to cast a 5 drop that gives you no card advantage on its own, and to then re-equip the Grafted Exoskeleton we're assuming you have in play you have to then sacrifice that creature. This is fighting a war of attrition against yourself to the benefit of an indestructible 3/3 with infect and no evasion.

This is epic! Looks like Wall of Blossoms isn't modern legal, replace with Wall of Roots maybe? And why not run a fourth Doubling Chant? You might want to use some more win conditions like Khalni Hydra and Primordial Hydra. Good luck!

In sac/graveyard based decks I really love cheap cantrip creatures. Wall of Blossoms, Elvish Visionary, Dusk Legion Zealot are great because they are recurring card advantage. They thin your deck to get to your threats faster
