TypicalTimmy yeah Ammonia would probably be fine as .
As far as melds, one of the cards actually needs the rules text to stipulate how they flip - its not enough to just say “melds with x”. That text itself is only there as reminder text.
As an example. Hanweir Garrison Meld just says ”(Melds with Hanweir Battlements.)”, but than in itself is just reminder text. The actual rules text all takes place on Hanweir Battlements Meld, where we see it has its own ability to meld the cards together.
Importantly, cards meld in many different ways, and not just automatically when both are in play.

I think a way that you can keep your Exalted theme, but still work around an inherent drawback of the strategy is to retool a bit and run creatures with Myriad or "when this creature attacks, create tokens that are tapped and attacking".
Token creatures that are created from Myriad, or that enter tapped and attacking are never declared as attackers, so Exalted will still trigger as intended. This essentially lets you punch one player with the Exalted creature, and still send stuff at your other opponents. Because Myriad is an attack trigger, you also get an extra Myriad token creature copies attacking your other opponents.
There are 14 cards in Mardu that could work here. A few notable ones:
Hammers of Moradin - A personal favorite for my Isshin deck. Hammers could be really helpful to open up attacking lanes for your Exalted creature.
Battle Angels of Tyr - Not budget, but also not outright busted. It can help create mana acceleration, draw, and gain life, but in my experience playing Battle Angels, it feels more like playing "catch up".
Some fun creatures that create tokens on attack:
Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin - Exalted will increase his token production
None of these cards are inherently optimized, except for maybe Battle Angels, but I think they could all add some extra spice to what you're already trying to accomplish.

All the eldrazi corruption in Innistrad was caused by Emrakul, and as I was looking at Hanweir recently, I noticed Emrakul was chilling in the background. I thought that was a neat touch, so I started looking at the other Eldritch melds to see if she was in them.
- Hanweir Battlements Meld: She's chilling in the top right behind the big towers
- Hanweir Garrison Meld: I believe she's the smudges in the top left; at least it looks tentacular if you tilt the screen back
- Gisela, the Broken Blade Meld: She's pretty much the entire background, tentacles are pretty obvious
- Bruna, the Fading Light Meld: Tentacles in the background, notably the one on the far left
Which brings us to Graf Rats Meld and Midnight Scavengers Meld. I cannot see her whatsoever, but it seems weird that only 2/3 melds would have Emmy. There is a dark smudge in the far background on the middle right of both that might be her, but my eyes aren't keen enough to tell, which brings us to the title.

Welcome to EDH! My first Magic deck was a Boros deck, so it has a special place in my heart. <3
Additionally, I would consider removing most of the Mentor cards and replacing them with more immediately impactful cards. Mentor takes a while to build up and each mentor creature only buffs one other creature at a time, meaning it usually takes a few turns to get enough out if it to secure the win. If this is a token deck, I would recommend adding some more token produced as well, such as Hanweir Garrison Meld and Leonin Warleader.
Also, you have very little card draw and ramp. My recommendation is to have at least 8 sources of card draw and 8 sources of ramp. Some ramp I would suggest is: Boros Signet, Talisman of Conviction, Mind Stone, Smothering Tithe, Keeper of the Accord, and maybe Cursed Mirror or Professional Face-Breaker. Some card draw I would suggest is: Esper Sentinel, Battle Angels of Tyr, Court of Grace, Jeska's Will, and Laelia, the Blade Reforged.
I highly recommend checking out sites like edhrec.com for deckbuilding advice, as well as the Command Zone on YouTube:
I hope this has been helpful!

Thank you for the suggestions mr5cientific. So far I'm feeling pretty happy with where my manabase is at. I recently swapped out Bojuka Bog for Scavenger Grounds so I could hit multiple yards at once, and activate in response to combos/triggers etc.
Of the 3 other lands you suggested, I could see maybe the White and/or Red lands fitting here, but I don't feel I currently need them. I think with this deck I'd rather have proactive board protection effects vs. Reanimation. I used Takenuma, Abandoned Mire in my Araumi deck before I took it apart. If I'm going to be milling, I like for it to be part of graveyard synergies. Similarly, if I am going to reanimate creatures in an aggro deck, I'd rather that they reanimate straight to the battlefield as opposed to my hand. I do have Living Death, Reanimate, Animate Dead, Necromancy, and Dance of the Dead as a reanimation package in binders in case I ever wanted to incorporate them. So far I'd rather just keep slamming creatures already in hand, instead of spending extra mana to get stuff back in non-Aristocrats/Reanimator deck.
