I have to admit that I just got the Intent and the Excavator. They are applicable for several fun decks, which pulled the trigger for me. I don't really have a budget, but I don't feel like spending more than $50 on a card nowadays. Especially since wizards seems to be printing all kind of staples lately. Because of Covid, I have only been goldfishing with this deck. Hopefully there will be actual playtesting anytime soon.
I have seen a couple of nice additions on gatherer
Also, don't worry about commenting too much. It is amazing to get some guidance from you :-)

I have looked at some of those cards. Exploration would be ideal since it is a one Mana enchantment. But I often find that if I can get one good use out of Mirror-Mad Phantasm and World Shaper that will solve my mid game Mana issues.

Out of curiosity, were you aware that Squirrel Nest is an infinite combo with the already included Earthcraft? netting you infinite squirrels to sac for some reason, or turn sideways for fatal. It is one of my favorite win conditions and it is in my Meren deck. :p I apologize in advance for stealing World Shaper, not sure how I missed it, but that is some killer tech. Thanks!

Deyosyf - Thank you for commenting!
While I do think the Squandered Resources combo with World Shaper is pretty nifty, I personally don't see myself getting much value out of Squandered Resources without World Shaper already on the field. With various fetchlands and other lands that sac themselves, I typically don't have to worry about having plenty of lands to play out of the graveyard already. On top of that, I'm not a huge fan of World Shaper if the deck doesn't have any sac outlets, which mine doesn't currently have. In the right deck this is a powerful combo, but for mine I don't have enough free deckslots to fit all of the needed cards in.
Gravebreaker Lamia is a card I've considered since it is quite good, but the problem is that it's not repeatable. With Sidisi, Undead Vizier, Sidisi can exploit herself so you can play her every turn without a problem. Combined with Animate Dead this is a powerful and cheap tutor effect (without Animate Dead, I probably wouldn't be running her). For Gravebreaker, I don't see the discount effect to be good enough to warrant running the card.
I do think Walking Ballista could be included in the deck, it's certainly not a bad card. The main issue I have with it is that it's kind of boring, haha. But yeah, especially in the right meta, Walking Ballista is very good for cleaning up small creatures, while still being an effective combo finisher. In my current meta, there's not a lot of small enough creatures, so I've just decided not to run it.
I will replace Growth Spiral with Coiling Oracle, I'm not actually sure why I hadn't thought of Oracle since I already own the card. So thanks for bringing it to my attention. I will test out Risen Reef to see if it's worth the extra mana. I feel like it's probably worth it, but I'll try to verify that before adding it to the deck.
As for Secrets of the Dead, it's not quite as attractive as Mystic Remora and Rhystic Study since it requires Muldrotha on the field to do much of anything. But I do still think it's worth running all 3. One of the main goals of this deck is to replay removal/interaction over and over again with Muldrotha, and Secrets of the Dead synergizes with this game plan perfectly. It might not be a card for every deck, but for mine it definitely puts in work every time I play it.

Squandered Resources can help ramp you early game by allowing you to sacrifice a few lands to play Muldrotha early. Then late game you can use it (and any other land sacrifice outlet) to combo with World Shaper. The Mending of Dominaria is an "OK" alternate to World Shaper but The Mending of Dominaria takes too long unless you have a way to proliferate.
Gravebreaker Lamia is a direct replacement for Sidisi, Undead Vizier I guess its worse because its an entomb instead of a tutor, but you already have support with Eternal Witness and Tamiyo, Collector of Tales and the added benefit is you can play it without having to have another creature around for exploitation. the cost reduction is well worth it as well.
Walking Ballista you already want to dump mana into X spells this card is a great way to manage and control boards early. Its an artifact and a creature so you can use muldrotha to cast it two times in a turn and it can be used as a kill con from the grave yard without needing anything other than muldrotha to make it a viable option.
Growth Spiral - you have two better creature options than this card; Coiling Oracle or Risen Reef. You have 3 other elemental creatures in the list already so risen reef might be worth the extra 1 generic mana over the coiling oracle. especially looking at how much you're likely to be replaying Shriekmaw and Mulldrifter. however oracle lets the land enter untapped. its a trade off I'm not sure which is better.
Secrets of the Dead - between Mystic Remora and Rhystic Study you don't really need the secrets of the dead.
