Field of the Dead
Field of the Dead enters the battlefield tapped.
: Gain .
Whenever Field of the Dead or another land enters the battlefield under your control, if you control seven or more lands with different names, create a 2/2 black Zombie creature token.

Warping Wail - Additional counterspell.
Wurmcoil Engine - Not entirely serious but Wurm + Klan Ironworks + Nimdeathmantle = Infinite creatures and mana(?), I'm too tired to do math at the moment but I think it checks out
Cryptic Caves > Springjack pasture. Draws cards which is relevant for your commander and in a pinch. Can be copied with rings as well and recurred with crucible.
Field of the Dead > Rogue's passage. Do you often find yourself at a stalemate where rogue's passage would be actually beneficial? Field, while comes in tapped, can easily produce some zombie tokens to protect your boardstate, sac to trading post and more.
Cavern of Souls > Nephalia Academy. Do you find your opponents making you discard in your meta? If not, I dont see the purpose as you can't utilize your commander. Would you not be better served by protecting your creatures from counterspells despite getting the cast trigger? Budget restriction? No1 plays blue in the meta?
Skullclamp - Draw, is there a specific reason you're not running it?
Mindslaver - Given you run Emrakrul, it doesn't seem like you're against mind control effects. If so, then this is a worthwhile inclusion. Being able to effectively not only time skip them at worst, but make them lose (looking at u necropotence), keep their commander in exile, or just make them in such an unwinnable position that your victory is assured, the flexibility is strong and should not be overlooked. Also, politics! You did state the deck is archenemy, so perhaps no politics, but if you're already the enemy, might as well end their misery.
Also, Scorched Ruins + Rings + Deserted Temple = Infinite colorless mana.
To respond to your previous comment, I do not believe it is a worthwhile inclusion.

Any reason you're not running The Gitrog Monster in here, it seems staggeringly synergistic unless I'm missing something? Another one to consider is Baba Lysaga, Night Witch, it's a tap ability, and you've usually got spare creature tokens and lands, add in some treasures or clues and you are going to draw a ton of cards. There is also Braids, Arisen Nightmare, hitting each opponent for a land can hurt some decks, especially if Braids can do it a few times, when you eventually get 3 cards for a land, it'll feel pretty good I think, but netting 2 opponent's worst land and getting a card back is also worth a land.
Stuff like Sakura-Tribe Scout or Skyshroud Ranger can be useful in a landfall deck, especially if you've got some card draw going on. There are also a few more, Scaled Herbalist and Llanowar Scout that are pretty budget. Since you might not mind pitching a land to dig one out, Silverglade Pathfinder can ramp you if you pitch a card, slow but grindy value. Oracle of Mul Daya is pretty cheap at the moment, a decent card if you run enough lands, Augur of Autumn and your Commander will only need 1 other power to let you play creatures off the top of your deck, that seems solid.
It's pretty high end, but I feel like you'd struggle to add more passive value generation to this deck than with Field of the Dead, that card is just so much synergy. Another to consider might be Ashaya, Soul of the Wild, then all your creatures are also landfall (other than tokens).
Great deck, I hope some of these ideas work!

Boseiju, Who Endures - Removal
Castle Garenbrig - Ramp, not necessary given your 1 drops, lower amount of creatures. But its floor is slightly lower and ceiling is slightly higher than average, so I believe it is a worthy inclusion
Field of the Dead - Free zombies! Such a good inclusion, don't sleep on it. Imagine with boundless realms, scapeshift, etc....
Misty Rainforest/similar lands/ETB Tapped Fetchlands - Too much value with crucible to ignore. Not to mention it allows you to shuffle if you have a top deck utilization such as Oracle of Mul Daya, top, etc....
Sanctum of Ugin - Nice tutor effect, not necessary but I've found it extremely helpful. Given in Azusa we run out of cards quickly, this allows you to tutor for either Kozilek to refill your hand.
Yavimaya Hollow - Protection, not needed but nice to have. Also, politics.
Yavimaya, Cradle of Growth - Not needed but allows you to tap maze for green mana, ancient tomb, etc...
Fierce Empath - Tutor for ulamog or kozilek for draw or removal. Or just any higher CMC creature you need really. Not necessary but I've always enjoyed him
Lotus Cobra - Ramp! Much better with fetches. Speaking of fetches....
Ramunap Excavator - Redundancy for crucible of worlds. More easily recurabble as well.
Regal Force - Tooth and nail into avenger + regal.
Scute Swarm - MASSIVE token generation, even better with regal
Tireless Tracker - Draw, slow, better with Lotus cobra. Not necessary, but if you find yourself running out of gas consistently, this might be worth considering.
Finale of Devastation - Like an additional G-Sun Zenith but with a higher ceiling. Also, a wincon
Rishkar's Expertise - While not optimal for your build per say, it has a high ceiling. Thought it was worth mentioning.
Scapeshift - Tutor, landfall trigger, trigger field of the dead. Synergy with land recursion such as crucible or ramunap. Should you ever wish to consider a token landfall package given your lack of creatures, this would supplement that. Not needed but nice to have
Given the amount of suggestions, you can either tell me what you like/want to include and I can provide suggestions for cuts based on that, or I can just go through your list right now and provide you my thoughts. Lmk what you think!

@MilesHiles Thank you for checking out the deck and for the compliments. Also thanks for the suggestions. I do feel like they fit a bit better in Lord Windgrace. You did however start me thinking about Field of the Dead, Thespian's Stage, and Vesuva. I'm not sure I can get away with field with only being two color. It might be worth testing.

Hey Lissmain, thanks for your upvote and question. I haven't been able to play this deck yet, but I'll try to answer your questions.
- I don't think I have any mill decks in my meta, so I haven't been in that situation with any of my decks I think... If that was something I'd face regularly, then I'd try to include more recursion (perhaps Sun Titan and Serra Paragon) or maybe even a way to get my graveyard back into my library.
- My plan with this deck for grindy games is to get Field of the Dead out and copy it with Vesuva and/or Thespian's Stage. That will generate so much value in a grindy game and is very resistant to board wipes. Scute Swarm can be even more effective. Another way is to get a recurring interaction piece in play to control the board, so Aura Fracture, Aura Shards or Thorn Mammoth.
Hope this answers your questions.

IHATENAMES For me the better option is the second one, but Field of the Dead is banned in modern and i found Splendid Reclamation a bit too slow, unless in combo with some landfall card. The first plan is similar to my mine but Zuran Orb has value only with Titania. The third plan i don't know how Gitrog or Titania can work and the deck too :). Lately i see Slogurk, the Overslime and was thinking of put a blue splash instead of a red one. Thanks for the tips.
