Creature — Giant
Beanstalk Giant's power and toughness are each equal to the number of lands you control.
(You may cast Beanstalk Giant from exile if you sent it on an adventure.)
Sorcery — Adventure
Search your library for a basic land card, put it onto the battlefield, then shuffle your library.
(You may cast Fertile Footsteps for from anywhere that you have the permission to cast this, then exile it on an adventure instead of putting it into your graveyard. When you have not chosen to cast Fertile Footsteps, this card is treated only as Beanstalk Giant in whatever zone it is in.)
(Example scenarios for Fertile Footsteps: You may cast this off of Melek, Izzet Paragon. You may not target this with Snapcaster Mage. Thalia, Guardian of Thraben increases the cost of this. Electrodominance requires X=3. If your opponent owns this and you cast it, you may cast their Beanstalk Giant from exile. You can cast this from a cascade spell if the spell has a cost greater than Beanstalk Giant's cost.)

Beanstalk Giant Discussion

Take out Oko's Accomplices and Tuinvale Treefolk. Replace them both with Kenrith's Transformation So you can take out Charmed Sleep and replace it with two more Brazen Borrowers. Oko's Hospitality for two more Beanstalk Giants, and the oko walkers for two more Hypnotic Sprites. If you want the heavy fairy focus thats fine, that's my first suggestion

Thank you for all of the suggestions! I've updated the deck and sideboard with a lot of your suggestions. However, I will point out why I didn't include a few. For starters, Dismember is a no go in my book, as losing 4 life, however it may seem small, can be bad later on. As for Spark Harvest , my reasoning behind it is because I can sacrifice a single Eldrazi Scion/ Eldrazi Spawn for its cost, which shouldn't be that big of a deal. Furthermore, Eldrazi Skyspawner isn't too great for the purpose mentioned, as I put in Mist Intruder as a means of potentially exiling really good cards the opponent has before they even draw them. It's luck-based, I know, but it worked for me in the past. Finally, while I see your point with Hamletback Goliath , one of your suggestions I need to explain. Beanstalk Giant , for example, relies on lands. However, if my main means of ramp is scions, it's not gonna get very big. The rest seem fine. Thank you for your help though! You helped a lot!

Your average CMC is high and your mana count is low. I know your commander doubles mana production from lands, but she also costs 5 mana. I usually run 45-50 mana cards (lands, rocks, dorks, and land ramp) in a deck, this includes 32-36 lands and 11-18 sources of ramp. You have plenty of lands, but your ramp is a bit lacking.
With how high your average CMC is, I would definitely go with 50 mana cards. This means that you would need 7 more ramp cards. Beanstalk Giant is pretty much a free include, and I'm not even sure I would count it toward ramp. As DrukenReaps said Cultivate and Kodama's Reach are definitely worth including, even if your commander hates on non-creatures. Other non-creature includes would be Sol Ring , Nature's Lore , Farseek , and Skyshroud Claim (the last 3 get exponentially better with non-basics with basic types like shocks and tango lands). The last ramp could be Birds of Paradise and you may even find yourself wanting even more ramp. In this case Elvish Mystic and Llanowar Elves would be decent includes.
I realize some of the cards I named (looking at you birds) are over $3, but it is something to build towards. I'm not sure that I would put 10 draw sources in all of my decks (many people would say the same about how much mana I run) but I do feel like this deck could only benefit from drawing more.

Yeah... I know that feeling of selling cards I shouldn't have.
Since you are crazy enough to wanna hear my suggestions, then here I come. I have to say one thing before though. A sideboard is somewhere you can put cards to switch between matches to fix your deck's weak point. So, even if have one Garruk, absolutely mainboard him. That would make the deck more consistent. Having him in the sideboard doesn't help.
Mutiny is another card that just isn't good. It's too unreliable as it needs your opponent to have at the very least two creatures and one of them needs to be strong enough to kill the other, in which case you'll kill the weaker but will still need to deal with a strong creature. Kozilek's Return isn't budget friendly. However, it's a good boardwipe that doubles if you cast a big Eldrazi, clearing the way for an attack. If you strictly want a single target removal you could use Lightning Bolt , Wild Slash , Abrade or, if want to have as few colors as possible, Reality Shift .
Same goes for Spark Harvest . Too unreliabe and sacrificing the resources you'll need to accomplish your goal doesn't seem good. You can use Dismember instead as really few creatures can survive -5/-5 and you wouldn't need a black source anymore.
Hamletback Goliath is cute altough being nothing else. It's not bad per say, but offers nothing more than just a big body. No protection, no evasion, not even trample. Even if it becomes a 40/40 it can be blocked by a 1/1. Just as a comparison, Hamletback Goliath can be destroyed, bounced or exiled, but Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger can't be destroyed and Emrakul, the Aeons Torn has protection from an absurd amount of things while simultaneously having evasion. You're investing a lot of mana in those Eldrazi and they "pay you back" by impacting the board as soon as they come in and are rather resilient. Rather than the Goliath, you could use Emrakul's Hatcher , Beanstalk Giant , Oblivion Sower or even Drowner of Hope . Here's a more organized way to explain:
Emrakul's Hatcher - Not nearly as big and has no potential to grow, but helps you "ramp". Also is a red card, so makes you have to properly adjust your manabase accordingly.
Beanstalk Giant - Not as big, but can grow really big if go all in the ramp plan as it also helps you ramp by being a ramp spell.
I've been writing a lot. Feel free to agree or disagree with what I said. Just because I think something would be better it doesn't it will be better or that you should like it, after all, the deck is yours.
Also, if you could change the format to Casual it would help a lot. When writing these comment, TappedOut can directly show you cards I want to suggest. However, since the deck is labeled as Unknown format, anything I try to recommend ends up being recognized as illegal.

Whirlwind_2100 Beanstalk Giant is there because I needed another Rampant Growth effect that was still on a creature so that it wouldn’t compromise my Primal Surge synergy. I will look at other things to cut for omnath and thanks for the +1!

That's a sweet build! i really like the fun interactions and synergies you're getting with Korvild and other fun cards. I may cut Beanstalk Giant for Omnath, Locus of Rage as beanstalk doesn't have very much synergy with korvold. +1 from me =)
congrats on #1 today! totally deserved! =)

The decks a little all over the place right now. I would recommend sticking to one idea. If you want to be a Golgari Adventure deck then keep things like Beanstalk Giant and Edgewall Innkeeper if you go this route then you might want to add Murderous Rider and Lucky Clover . If you want to be a knight deck keep cards like Garenbrig Paladin and Foulmire Knight although I wouldn't reccomend a Knight deck in Golgari. Ayara, First of Locthwain and Yorvo, Lord of Garenbrig should never be played in a multicolored deck. Even if your trying to make a jank deck you definitely need to get more consistency. You need to be able to reliably draw cards you want so that you can consitenly go off on your opponent. Based on the cards you have and how long your account has been active I take it you fairly new to MTG and are making a deck from cards you have so for that not too bad of a deck aside from the incositency. I would recommend that if you want to play Golgari you should either play Adventures or Food. Their are some really good decks in both of those archetypes and while they are more expensive you will get good results. If your looking for budget mono-red is pretty good with Torbran, Thane of Red Fell and while not as competitively viable I got good results with Mono-Green before and I've heard good things about mono-black however its a bit more expensive. If you want to play a multi-colored deck and Orzhov lifegain deck is fun but if your going for budget Boros Knights is probably your best bet.
