Myrkul, Lord of Bones
Legendary Creature — God
As long as your life total is less than or equal to half your starting life total, Myrkul, Lord of Bones has indestructible.
Whenever another nontoken creature you control dies, you may exile it. If you do, create a token that’s a copy of that card, except it’s an enchantment and loses all other card types.

I also vote Tiamat. I'd say The Tarrasque but that card is... not the best. Maybe the new Ghalta card from Lost Caverns of Ixalan as a replacement?
Maybe Captain N'ghathrod?

Nemata, Primeval Warden is replacing the ability for a creature to die with it being exiled instead. As such, no death triggers ever happen (because nothing actually dies, its getting exiled), so Myrkul, Lord of Bones ability never gets a chance to trigger.

Hello. Just showed up to game night with my Myrkul, Lord of Bones deck and my buddy has a new Nemata, Primeval Warden. If a creature of mine dies, ehich effect takes precedence? Do i lose the creature to exile or can I make an enchantment token?

If I have Myrkul, Lord of Bones and Devoted Druid on the battlefield and Devoted Druid dies, I can then exile it with Myrkul, Lord of Bones second ability to create a token enchantment copy of Devoted Druid. How would the untap ability on Devoted Druid interact with the token as it no longer has an assigned toughness and isn't a creature? I would assume that I can still put the -1/-1 counters on it and it just becomes an infinite mana combo as long as it doesn't become a creature. Is that how the interaction works or am I missing something? Thank you for the help!!

Yes. Since Ulamog and Myrkul's abilities trigger at the same time, you can choose which one goes on the stack first. If you chose Myrkul's ability to go on the stack first, then Ulamog would be exiled and then an enchantment copy would be made; Ulamog's ability would then resolve and fail to find Ulamog in your graveyard, so it would fizzle.
Alternatively, you could shuffle Ulamog into your library first, and then Myrkul's ability would fail to resolve, as per the Gatherer rulings on Myrkul, Lord of Bones: "The last ability creates a copy of the card as it last existed in the graveyard, not of the creature as it last existed on the battlefield."

Use Animate Dead to take control of Shivan Dragon from an opponent's graveyard. Sacrifice to Altar of Dementia. My question comes in can I use Myrkul, Lord of Bones ability to exile it and make an enchantment copy?

you can link the cards in your question by putting double brackets around the card name.
you would get a token copy, but it wouldn't be a land.

You can use double square brackets around a card's name to create a reference link. It's the best way to help make sure everyone understands what's going on in your question: Myrkul, Lord of Bones, Scurry Oak
The evolve ability won't do anything in a case like this because Scurry Oak doesn't have any P/T to compare to. The full entry for the Evolve ability in the Magic Comprehensive Rules document includes this clarifying rule:
702.100c A creature can’t have a greater power or toughness than a noncreature permanent.
