Embodiment of Insight
Creature — Elemental
Land creatures you control have vigilance.
Landfall — Whenever a land enters the battlefield under your control, you may have target land you control become a 3/3 Elemental creature with haste until end of turn. It's still a land.

The core of it is a mix of Courser of Kruphix / Oracle of Mul Daya to let you play lands from on top of your library, then Brainstorm with Jace/Augur to put lands on top of your library (which you can then play) and keep useful cards. After ramping a bunch and drawing cards, you win with big Landfall creatures like Avenger of Zendikar , Embodiment of Insight , or Rampaging Baloths (which is pretty cool imo).
Oracle of Mul Daya is really expensive, so you might want to go all 4 Courser of Kruphix and play some Wayward Swordtooth or Llanowar Scout or something instead; if your friend only plays casually that would probably work okay. Or just make proxies.

I would add more things that support both elemental and lands-matter synergies. Some options could be: Avenger of Zendikar , Embodiment of Insight , Embodiment of Fury , Embodiment of Spring , Roil Elemental , and Undergrowth Champion .
Another thing to consider, especially with a 4 cmc commander, Rampant Growth or Farseek can out-perform Cultivate and Kodama's Reach by coming out a turn earlier. If you're more worried about consistently having lands in-hand as opposed to speed, ignore this though.
Love the list overall, I'm really excited to try out the new Omnath!

cute idea but i think people will get wise to this after a game or 2 and enchantment removal/ Pithing Needle will shut you down.
I'd suggest implementing a Landfall theme to help support a heavy land count:
Grazing Gladehart , Undergrowth Champion , Lotus Cobra , Embodiment of Insight , Baloth Woodcrasher , Avenger of Zendikar , Murasa Ranger , Oran-Rief Hydra , Turntimber Basilisk , Jaddi Offshoot , Territorial Baloth , Snapping Gnarlid , Snapping Creeper , Scythe Leopard , Rampaging Baloths

Here's some cards on the top of my mind that might help you out with your land-creature theme!
- Brawn - For more Trample-enablers.
- Overwhelming Stampede - Strictly better Overrun imo.
- Darksteel Citadel - Indestructible land is always nice with the land-creature theme.
- Awakening of Vitu-Ghazi - Great land-creature spell!
- Embodiment of Insight - Getting all those lands to also have vigilance might be really good..
- Darksteel Garrison - Again, more indestructibility to your big stompy lands.
- Archetype of Endurance - Hexproof for your guys to dodge those pesky kill spells.
- Dense Foliage - Pretty much another Asceticism
- End-Raze Forerunners - A blow out card with the potential to finish games.
- God-Eternal Rhonas - Another great finisher that also semi-recurs!
Hope these will be of any help!

One thing to note: see how as we add more cards a mana curve naturally starts to form? That happens just about every deck. I try to maintain the curve that forms unless I have a reason to adjust it. So we'll be cutting cards that disrupt the curve. For example, at this moment we would want to cut cards that cost 6 cmc. But we're not done.
