I've been playing my muldrotha deck for about 2 years now, and here's some of my favorite combos to use
and any other wincon works around cards like Mesmeric Orb , Fraying Sanity (cast on self) Mirror-Mad Phantasm , Altar of Dementia , and one of either Jace, Wielder of Mysteries or Laboratory Maniac ( Thassa's Oracle also works but I haven't gotten my hands on a copy yet so it's not in the deck) and simply works to get as many cards in my graveyard and then win with the Lab/jace.
there's a lot of strategies and EDHREC has a great page dedicated to combos within certain commanders or color archetypes, so I'll link muldrotha's here
hope this helps!

Mairsil, the Pretender . Best win con is Mirror-Mad Phantasm , Dread Return and Thassa's Oracle . Make sure not to include Demonic Consultation or Tainted Pact if you're staying on lower power, but you can add them if you go cEDH.
You get tons of fun synergy, but the best things to have caged are Arcanis the Omnipotent , AEtherling , Staff of Domination , and Lazav, the Multifarious . Include Civilized Scholar Flip and Necrotic Ooze , and you get another way to mill your deck with Scholar + Ooze/Lazav + Golgari Thug / Stinkweed Imp .
There's also a ton of random infinite loops possible with Mairsil, as well as great ways to get tons of value. You are really reliant on your commander, but then again you also only need to cast Mairsil again and you can get back into the game.
Oh, and Tim. Hell's Caretaker 's Legends printing art is awesome.

If you do decide to build Mairsil, the Pretender, basically what you do is you make half your deck cards that have an activated ability, then lands and little bit of other whatever.
Some really good cards for Mairsil with activated abilities are:
Blighted Bat (Gives haste)
Cinderhaze Wretch (Discard+Untap)
Doom Whisperer (Mills, good for setting up Mairsil)
Horseshoe Crab (Untaps)
Kozilek, the Great Distortion (Counters stuff)
Mirror-Mad Phantasm (Not sure about ruling, but dumps portion of library in grave)
Quicksilver Elemental (Targeting Mairsil, makes it so he can do his abilities any number of times per turn, it's gnarly)
Pendant of Prosperity (Again, weird rulings, but I believe it gives you crazy value because you control Mairsil aka Pendant and your its owner.)
Gilded Lotus (Should hopefully be obvious)

abiblestudent: Thanks for the suggestions and upvote! =D
Mirror-Mad Phantasm is awesome and I'm sad I was unaware of this card until now! Definite add. I had been considering replacing Traumatize with Fleet Swallower a while back, and in conjunction with Fraying Sanity either one is a healthy dose of cheese without too much jank. ;)
I used to run Golgari Thug and Golgari Grave-Troll in the first iteration of the deck and did like the way they worked, but in the end I think they were cut for Codex Shredder & Altar of Dementia. I do still run Dakmor Salvage as it can infinitely Dredge with The Gitrog Monster, and I've been trying to acquire Life from the Loam for some time now, but not an easy card to find it seems.
Thanks again, great suggestions!

Changes: Added Mirror-Mad Phantasm and Teardrop Kami, removed a Swamp and Unesh, Criosphinx Sovereign. Unesh gave massive value but didn't actually win, even when Encored. Teardrop Kami is another very powerful untap source -- I can't believe I forgot it until Awk0shi pointed it out, thank you again! Meanwhile, Mirror-Mad replaces Unesh with a better option: when cast normally, it's a powerful (if expensive) mill effect, and when encored it immediately mills my entire deck. Plus it's been a pet card since original Innistrad!
I might also run Necrotic Ooze in here, for the ability to steal Mirror-Mad's ability. We shall see.

With the self mill route I would strongly recommend checking out Mirror-Mad Phantasm or Fleet Swallower. Paired with Fraying Sanity it wins games instantly with lab man or jace on the battlefield. Would also strongly recommend looking at the dredge mechanic - recent direction I've taken with my Muldrotha deck. Play tested 5 times now with my play group, and have 2 self mill wins

Would you ever consider Mirror-Mad Phantasm? It's pretty slow, but it can stock your graveyard a lot by itself and can mill your entire library in one shot if you encore it.
