Land Tax is bad for 5-color. You need some dual lands and fetch lands. Not basics.
Grand Warlord Radha was here. But i cut her off, because for this deck is too slow.
Buried Alive without massive reanimation. I use only classic in color.
Aura Shards is good choice. I will think about it...
This deck is mostly for Duel Commander. So, Sensei's Divining Top is not choice.
But thanks for advice :)

Another great choice for a tribal deck is Coat of Arms .
It never hurts to have more creature tutors--especially in a tribal deck. A few you might consider are: Recruiter of the Guard , Eladamri's Call , Enlightened Tutor , Idyllic Tutor , Altar of Bone , Green Sun's Zenith , Sylvan Tutor and Summoner's Pact .
If you want to go faster you'll need to get more lands out fast and/or mana rocks. That's where green comes in. White has a few spells like Land Tax , Tithe and Oreskos Explorer but, green has stuff like: Burgeoning , Carpet of Flowers , Exploration Utopia Sprawl , Wild Growth , Land Grant , Crop Rotation , Sylvan Scrying , Azusa, Lost but Seeking , Birds of Paradise and Bloom Tender .
Its also not a bad idea to toss in a few more instant-speed removal spells such as: Swords to Plowshares , Wear Away , Sundering Growth , Nature's Claim , Naturalize , Natural State , Dispatch , Disenchant , Afterlife , Beast Within , Crib Swap and Oblation .

Seeing as the plan of the deck seems to be: Play commander; win, I would suggest preventing opponent interaction. City of Solitude stops all interaction on your turn and can be easily chained into your commander or cast on the same turn. Hall of Gemstone has a similar effect but requires you to have a mana dork or rock that can produce ideally.
Yisan, the Wanderer Bard plays a very similar game with the some of the same cards. Look at some of the competitive Yisan decks for inclusions in his chains to go infinite and win. You already have some similar cards like Scrib Ranger and Quirion Ranger so including the few others like Wirewood Symbiote and Temur Sabertooth wouldn't hurt the deck all that much and still synergize. Also a favourite for both of those decks is Instill Energy for 1 mana haste and a free untap each turn.
If you want this deck to be more competitive I suggest adding ways to accumulate mana faster starting turn 1-2: Carpet of Flowers, Burgeoning, Exploration, Priest of Titania, and Gaea's Touch all satisfy that.
You also have no plan B. If your opponent casts Nevermore, Pithing Needle, Torpor Orb, Phyrexian Revoker on Primespeaker and you don't have an answer you're a sitting duck. Birthing Pod should be included for consistency as well as some ways of tutoring out answers: Worldly Tutor, Mystical Tutor, Spellseeker, Chord of Calling, etc.

Seeing as you have 5 colours to play with you might as well run the best multicoloured cards:
Tutors: Buried Alive
Removal: Aura Shards, Bant Charm (amazingly versatile), Decimate (iffy but playing a 4-for-1 on your opponent feels really good), Swan Song, Sudden Spoiling, Toxic Deluge, Rakdos Charm, Chaos Warp, Cyclonic Rift, Shivan Harvest

So I've been motivated to build my own Surrak deck since seeing this post and found a few more cards that slot in very well.
Equilibrium turns all our creatures into spot removal for 1 more mana. Can bounce strong ETB creatures for reuse and dodge opponents spot removal.
Panharmonicon will do some work as this is primarily an ETB deck.
Cream of the Crop and Lurking Predators work well if you skewed towards big sticks and away from utility creatures. On the flip side Wild Pair favours utility creature builds and can sometimes sneak out an army. Very entertaining to flash out a 1/1 and tutor out Draining Welk to counter a spell and make a nice beat stick.

I'm a huge advocate for Lightning Greaves to protect Shalai and have a full lock out on creatures. Bastion Protector does a similar job but only in a meta where destroy is more common than tuck/exile.
If you play in a spicy meta Carpet of Flowers creates absurd amounts of mana for a single because someone will be playing blue.
I highly suggest getting a Teferi's Protection as it is the only preventative card that can avoid Toxic Deluge and Cyclonic Rift.
I heard time walk was a good card, good thing green has a copy: Seedtime. After the blue players learn it's in your deck they second guess countering your spells or sometimes walk right into an extra turn lethal. It is also the only other spell in game that can semi counter an EoT cyclonic rift.

Hi. I like the idea of not fully relying on the combo of prosh and food chain. Some suggestions can be Vexing Shusher for those pesky control matchups. Also more dorks will be helpful even in late game cause they can grant you mana for other cards if used with taping them and then using them for food chain. You may want some type of board wipes. Mana rocks are crucial , especially since your curve is kinda high. You may also want some anti graveyard hate. As well as anti stax pieces. (I used to play Prosh , Now I mainly play Stax) Depending on your budget you may want some fetches. Also Some draw and land search would not hurt. In the lines of Kodama's Reach Birds of Paradise Skyshroud Claim Even the simple Llanowar Elves. Also you run a lot of ETB tapped lands. Basic lands would do you better if you don't have the funds for a better mana base as long as you can search. Running on a budget land base I'd focus on just Green. Green can fix almost every land by searching or just Filtering it. Also Running Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth along side Expedition Map Can fix your mana base alot as well. Try talking to your play group they may be willing to allow you to use proxies. Some are some are not. Also if you play aganist alot of graveyard decks Crop Rotation Into Bojuka Bog is always awesome. I would try to get a draw engine going in the deck. Greater Good if fine but if someone hates on you (Because your Prosh) and you have nothing to sac you may just be sitting there and that's no fun. Carpet of Flowers Is great if you play against a lot of blue players. Toxic Deluge Is a great board wipe if needed. Dosan the Falling Leaf Is also another option or substitute from Vexing Shusher. These are all just suggestions. Feel free to take any you want. If you want more advice just let me know.
