you need Aggravated Assault just infinite mana and extra combats

I like the minor moves! Just an FYI, there is potentially better protection out there than Shield of Kaldra — Darksteel Plate is definitely one of the better options in equipment. Whispersilk Cloak gives shroud but that may make it more difficult to equip things to Valduk.
I totally get it about Glorious End . It is definitely a last stand kind of card.
Something I just thought of. You get tokens at the beginning of combat so what about Neheb, the Eternal as a mana generator + Aggravated Assault . If damage gets through every combat you could get into an infinite combat cycle I think? As long as you are netting the mana to pay for aggravated assault. Plus the tokens will stack. I think that works...
The whole creature thing is just my opinion—like if you needed to cut things down that’s where I would start. But obviously you will know best! Especially with how the deck plays in your meta.

I really liked Scour from Existence , and it will probably make it's way back in if no solid removal comes out in MH.
I would only run Final Fortune type effects if you do the Sundial thing. In place of that, I would give Aggravated Assault a try. Your deck and the changes you are talking about would allow you to make more mana than I can, which would mean infinite combats if you start with enough tokens and OG Krenko on the board.
Kazuul tokens for Ashnod's is definitely a huge plus. You're making me want to run it again! Haha.
Harder to remove is exactly why I run Fervor over Hammer, my playgroup has a good amount of artifact hate, which is also why I have leaned out my artifacts over the years.
The deck, and monored period, has the hardest time with card advantage. Unfortunately the best cards red has access to fix that are artifacts or wheels. Mind's Eye or Slate of Ancestry are probably the two best artifacts. Having Rings, Bracers, and Goblin Welder definitely make Burnished Hart more potent, I've just always had great luck with it, and ran Sad Robot for a while and never really felt the impact to the same degree, but I didn't have any artifact recursion. I am also thinking about Feldon again, I don't think I gave him enough time to try to work.

Green Sun's Zenith is a card you should consider. It fetches Dryad Arbor on turn one, and gets whatever else you need ( Knight of the Reliquary , Vitaspore Thallid , etc.) later. You should also consider running mana-acceleration dorks. Cards like Avacyn's Pilgrim , Llanowar Elves , Fyndhorn Elves , Arbor Elf , Birds of Paradise and Orcish Lumberjack would all be well-placed in your list. Consider running Sacred Foundry and Temple Garden , as you can grab these with your Farseek . Further in that vein, Nature's Lore is another good piece of ramp that gets non-basics, and it doesn’t specify that they ETB tapped.
Maybe your experience has been different from mine, but I’ve never been particularly impressed by Land Tax in EDH. If you include ways to bypass the one land per turn rule like Exploration or Burgeoning , it may be alright. Faithless Looting and Cathartic Reunion are useful for filtering the Land Tax lands into business spells, as is Magmatic Insight .
Path to Exile is another card I don’t like in EDH, as I’ve found ramping opponents to be pretty dangerous. I suggest Citywide Bust as a potential alternative, though Retribution of the Meek is likely better for this particular list.
Running hate bears in EDH is also pretty good: cards like Aven Mindcensor are a great way to slow down your opponents. Stax pieces like Price of Glory are good ways to avoid getting countered. Depending on how blue-centric your meta is, you could consider Boil , Choke , or Carpet of Flowers as well. If your meta is as blue as mine, consider Pyroblast as well.
Decimate is a card you should at least consider. It varies between useless and busted, so I think experimentation is probably the only way to see if you like it. Similarly, Punishing Fire goes well with your Grove of the Burnwillows to kill smaller blockers your Meekstone doesn’t keep tapped, but that is also a meta call.
Neheb, the Eternal goes infinite with Aggravated Assault , as does Neheb, Dreadhorde Champion . The prior is obviously preferable in this respect, as it is easier to get the combo going with the Eternal and it doesn’t mill you out in the end. However, Dreadhorde Champion is an excellent card for cycling through your deck on its own, and may also work well with your Land Tax .
Good luck with deck building!

Great start man! I run a Rith, the Awakener token deck of my own, and Nature's Will , Druids' Repository , and Sword of Feast and Famine all allow you to go infinite combat phases with Aggravated Assault !
Other than that, looking good!
