hmm, i like the idea of using General Kudro of Drannith as a commander. I envisioned using humans as early game, zombies as mid game, and angels as late game cards. When humans die, they come back as zombies while others transcend as angels.
Saskia the Unyielding also sounds very strong for it. It doesnt buff the theme but she is a strong human that also gives access to boros angels, some green humans, Selensia angels, and still have some of the stronger zombies with black mana. No blue but thats alright.
I love the discussion!

I was thinking has access to a ton of humans that provide utility by sacrifice themselves
Some Examples:Cathar Commando,Priest of Fell Rites,General Kudro of Drannith,Plaguecrafter,Doomed Necromancer,Benevolent Bodyguard,Children of Korlis,Martyr of Sands,Bounty Agent,Garza's Assassin
There to many to list here but there is enough to continually feed Ramos and tormad engine creating 3/3 zombie tokens every turn while also keeping the board in check by recurring the utility

None of your creatures have etb effects except General Kudro of Drannith. Running 7 flicker effects just to save creatures from removal is not a good investment if you have no ETBs to abuse. It requires you to hold up mana, makes your creatures summoning sick, wastes a card on blanking your opp's removal, in general it would just be better to run more threats instead.

As a baseline, you'll need to add lands, which I'm sure you know. Since you're making Treasure and Gold tokens in this deck you'd probably be good with roughly 34-36 lands, leaning more to the most mana color you'll need, say like a 25/25/50 split if thats what you're going for.
While I do like Gisela, Blade of Goldnight and Tariel, Reckoner of Souls they have a high mana cost as most good Angels do, while Tariel synergizes well with your strategy she does have that randomness factor and would advise a more reliable and consistent option. Gisela speeds up the game. As a player this is good and accelerates the game, but as an opponent my first priority would be to get rid of Gisela and that paints an even bigger target on your back.
Restoration Angel is fantastic for your edict effects, at face value. You'd need to run flicker effects to really make it shine. Basandra, Battle Seraph seems really good, forcing people to attack is nice and it prevents players from casting anything in combat, however it means instant speed removal will be used before the combat step. This also stops you from casting spells in combat.
As for Human synergy, I really like Teysa Karlov , Thalisse, Reverent Medium , Queen Marchesa , General's Enforcer and Fain, the Broker . All of them work very well with the token strategy, especially Teysa and Thalisse
Things I wouldn't necessarily include are cards like Juri, Master of the Revue (as good as she is with Fling ), General Kudro of Drannith (incidental unless you go all in on the Human tribal strategy), Devout Chaplain (same reason for Kudro), or Dire Fleet Hoarder (basically a one time effect unless you jump through the Teysa hoop, yes it does give you a Treasure token, but at a cost of 2 mana and the creature dying).
As for Demons I really like the Archfiend of Depravity and Rakdos, the Showstopper , their mass sacrifice effects are wonderful, however Rakdos does effect your board heavily unless you play to his synergies, you wouldn't want Negan to die to his effect would you?
-When it comes to your Dragons, I think you hit the nail on the head, nothing I would really change or take out. Allows for Magda, Brazen Outlaw to have a decent outlet if you don't want an artifact.
-Finally, the other things you've got going. Dockside should just be an auto-include, albeit a heavy price tag, but if you can get one you should definitely include it.
Dark Impostor , while mana intensive is still a decent mana sink that can function effectively as targeted removal. Definitely keep your edict creatures, they are super useful and trigger Negan, and thats what you want.
Starnheim Aspirant is useful if you go super heavy into the Angel theme, but if you skimp on the Angel theme this could very often be a dead card.
Storm-Kiln Artist , I like this a lot for this deck, can be a beater, and generates value.
Vault Robber , seems bad, and bad to do. Synergizes with Magda and makes Treasure tokens, but thats really it... PLUS it requires you to have a creature in YOUR grave. I'd cut this, but if you have a reason to play it I'm not seeing immediately play it in your deck.
Viscera Seer , good card, good sac outlet, not much else to say.
Creatures I'd include based on what I've seen: Solemn Simulacrum , Burnished Hart and Mayhem Devil . Some good ramp and a decent damage dealer if you'd like to play a cheap one. Plus the Devil is great at just 3 mana.
Angelic Renewal is basically a one time effect. While good, there are better recursion spells out there, but this one does fit the Angel theme so thats really cool. :D
Aside from that, I think that's a decent spread of enchantments. Nothing to add really, love the inclusion of the Sagas and Revel in Riches .
- Shiny Impetus is good for token generation, but don't play a sacrifice creature to have that player just get rid of it, deceptively good and bad.
The Eldest Reborn is also another good saga to include if you want another edict type effect, and when it does go off you can get what you want from players' graveyards.
The three signets for your colors, Arcane Signet as well.
Panharmonicon to double up on edict effects.
- Approach of the Second Sun : Does provide you an effective way to win, very good card for a deck like this especially if the game goes long.
- Brass's Bounty . Love it, not much else to say.
- Contract Killing fits the theme and the flavor. Love it.
- Damnable Pact is good card draw for you, and useful against someone who flies too close to the sun.
- Debt to the Deathless / Entreat the Angels . While both good, is not something you want to draw into early game or open with. I would highly suggest playing less finisher cards like these, but if you wanna play em don't let me stop you.
- Killing Wave . Love it, super good.
- Necrotic Hex . Expensive, but great effect.
- Excavation Technique is actually a really good spell. Synergizes with Magecraft like WoTC intended and is deceptive for your opponents.
- Increasing Devotion / Finale of Glory . One of these is better than the other. I'll let you decide which is which.
- Heartless Pillage / Seize the Spoils . I really like both of these cards as spells and thematically. They work well for Negan and as spells for you to Pillage and Loot with as you please.
- Ruinous Ultimatum / Tragic Arrogance : Both are fantastic, especially as finisher spells. I'd make a point to include both so you have an option when you're ready to win(IE: Revel in Riches in play with a ton of creatures on board, its akin to vandalblasting with a lettuce on board).

Ok I'm pitching Ramosian Sergeant again - you have 11 changelings this can fetch (& 12 with the Guardian Gladewalker ), so for a reasonable portion of the game this will be a cheaper Birthing Boughs that gets some additional utility with fetching actually good changelings like Masked Vandal or Unsettled Mariner .
And IMO Necrotic Sliver / General Kudro of Drannith / Tolsimir, Friend to Wolves are the worst lords atm, since they're gonna get some of your changelings killed, which is at odds with all the "get as many changelings in play as possible" cards. Your recursion is not amazing either.

Knight of Grace is a great sideboard card; Luminarch Aspirant and Seasoned Hallowblade are 2-drops that scale well, you could even splash black for General Kudro of Drannith instead of Sanctuary Lockdown.

Some points off of abby315's post: In Magic, most competitive decks in most formats interact with the Graveyard in some way. Lack of Graveyard interaction typically means you're a Tribal deck or some other green-heavy creature deck. Those decks work, don't get me wrong, but creature heavy, typically either Stompy or Tribal, and occasionally Zoo lists, are among the few 'yardless strats.
And it's not in huge ways -- Tarmogoyf is all a deck needs to join the graveyard strategy dogpile. The thing is that the 'yard is so good that many decks can gain marginal benefits without having to go all in.
Thus, in incidental graveyard hate should be worth it. Cards like General Kudro of Drannith and Anafenza, the Foremost are good in Humans decks due to their Human types and their ability to hate out yards.
As someone running a yard strategy, you will be easily beaten in games 2-3. Everyone who is any good has graveyard hate in the sideboard.
Just an FYI.

Looks like you and i are on the same page for an orzhov humans deck using General Kudro of Drannith, as I just built one today: https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/24-10-20-yoe-orzhov-humans/?cb=1603595484
