There are others, but I'm really scratching my head here.

In my opinion Explosive Vegetation is not playable in commander. Or any other format lol. Maybe in a lands deck. If you already had all the 2 and 3 mana untapped land spells included.
Have you run this deck in paper? Have you made any changes? I think defensive counter magic should probably be in the deck even in its most casual shell.
Whenever I see simic colors I immediately think of degenerate combos. Infinite mana + Finale of Devastation or Thassa's Oracle lines are my favorite, but I dig the Kiki-Jiki lines.Hyrax Tower Scout Splinter Twin and Combat Celebrant all add to those lines. If you use Intruder Alarm it combos with kiki jiki plus can give you infinite mana with mana dorks like Bloom Tender and Gyre Engineer by bouncing a Shrieking Drake or Dream Stalker kind of like the Ancestral Statue line. If you run Beast Whisperer or Guardian Project or The Great Henge bouncing the Shrieking Drake gets you to a Thassa's Oracle win.

Bounce spells might be good as a splash, but maybe just as a one-of, like "break glass in case of emergency" sort of thing. In Animar decks, you just recast the one creature after it's bounced, but in this deck it would mean bouncing at least two cards all at once, then using resources to recast them all. To that end, Shrieking Drake over Dream Stalker because a) it only costs one, and b) has flying.

Exactly, I suggested this CMC5 because of the early ramp, its easy to you cast Iluna on 4 and draw 6 on 5.
I will confess, I really thought that has to many, but counterspell is a topic I didnt like to provoke, people love then.
I was thinking about the part you said that wasnt mutating a lot and I come up with a crazy idea, what do you think of using creatures often used in Animar decks to bounce the mutate pile to your hand and restart the chain? Somethink like Shrieking Drake and Dream Stalker, and now that I read your comment I think we already have a place to look for cuts.

I would add in some redundancies to the bouncing creatures. Man-o'-War, Dream Stalker, Kor Skyfisher, and Stonecloaker (especially good cause flash and also grave hate). Cloud of Faeries also does good work when comboing with Aluren and a bounce source.
Speaking of bounce sources, more redundancies! Words of Wind and Overburden (This card is important as it combos out with Shrieking Drake and is generally a strong card. You won't care about bouncing lands cause chulane will put it right back into play).
Now what to do with all the mana in the world you could want and all the casting you could want? Well, Aetherflux Reservoir and Brain Freeze come to mind. Also, Words of Wind doubles as a win con by bouncing everyone out of the game entirely. Similarly, Words of Wilding can give you as many bears as you want to swing with. These Word cards will help save that mandatory draw from Chulane as your deck empties out. (And on the chance your playgroup allows some UnCards, Crow Storm is quite the funny win con)
How are you gonna get these cards quickly and consistently though? A couple more draw engines wouldn't hurt. Beast Whisperer and Guardian Project are both strong when playing a "I must cast all the creatures" deck. Abundance and Rhystic Study aren't too bad either.

I run a similar style deck to this.
Altar of the Brood is a secondary wincon for 1 mana also. Mill out your opponents while recasting creatures.
