Okay so I can tell you're a relative novice, since most of the cards you use are recent, so here are my thoughts as a long-time player.

1) mana concerns. You have a LOT of dorks, but that's not exactly optimal. In commander, there tend to be a lot of board wipes (example: Wrath of God). This just throws your gameplan to the wind. Try some rocks and ramp. Sol Ring, Exploration, Burgeoning, Worn Powerstone, Hedron Archive, Cultivate, Traverse the Outlands, Skyshroud Claim, and Emerald Medallion are good examples.

2) flavor. Lots of big things, but not a lot of really good things. Wurmcoil Engine, Blightsteel Colossus, Archetype of Endurance provides some much-needed resistance to removal, Mossbridge Troll to just surprise kill an opponent, Siege Behemoth to power through chump-blocking, Steel Hellkite for removal, Thunderfoot Baloth, and if you want a little out-there synergy, Beacon Behemoth, Paleoloth, and Spearbreaker Behemoth are all pretty cool.

3) draw. Or lack thereof. All right there isn't that much to suggest here (it's green, for heaven's sake). But Soul of the Harvest, Zendikar Resurgent, Elemental Bond, maybe Kavu Lair: all good options. For some burst draw, it doesn't get much better than Soul's Majesty and Rishkar's Expertise. Others include Mouth / Feed and Shamanic Revelation.

So yeah, that's most of what I got, other than Prowling Serpopard. Against Todd's blue deck.

Nessian Wilds Ravager, Managorger Hydra and Phytotitan can be a little underwhelming- i'd recommend something to help deal with lots of creatures or removal spam- Asceticism is amazing, as are Endbringer, Farsight Mask, Whispersilk Cloak.

You could significantly boost ramp and group hug with Thousand-Year Elixir Magewright's Stone, Puppet Strings, and in large enough games just go infinite cards/mana with Staff of Domination, Sword of the Paruns and Umbral Mantle. Wirewood Lodge is also great.

With this many big creatures you should also look at Dramatic Entrance, Lure of Prey Quicksilver Amulet Dragon Arch, Norwood Priestess and Elvish Piper. Aspect of Mongoose can work well if everyone kills your commander at sorcery speed.

For more big creatures? Chorus of the Conclave, Autochthon Wurm, Novablast Wurm,Grove of the Guardian, Trostani's Summoner, (or the alara tradition of Vagrant Plowbeasts/Mosstodon/Beacon Behemoth/Paleoloth/Mycoid Shepherd/Sacellum Godspeaker/Spearbreaker Behemoth)

Hope this helps!
