Imprint - When Extraplanar Lens enters the battlefield, you may remove target land you control from the game. (The removed card is imprinted on this artifact.)
Whenever a land with the same name as the imprinted card is tapped for mana, its controller adds one mana to his or her mana pool of any type that land produced.

Charcoal comes in tapped and that's no good. We want our ramp to be fast so we can get to our plays faster.
Dynamo is costly for a rock and shares a mana cost with Doctor Moth, creating conflict between the two. Assuming you have 4 mana open let's say turn 3, would you rather cast a mana rock, or the good Doctor? Alternatively for 4 mana you could be reading "charts" and operating on a patient. Dynamo is just awkward in that when you could be casting it, you could also be making impactful plays instead. It's also a pretty big removal target.
Nyx Lotus is the worst of both worlds. It costs 4 mana AND comes in tapped, so you don't even get the 3 Dynamo would give you. Its production also entirely depends on how well you're doing, which could be not so good. Finally, it's an even bigger target than Dynamo, and if it gets blown up you basically just skipped your turn if you tapped out to cast it.
I'd recommend any manner of 2 cmc ramp as solid replacements. Jet Medallion and Mind Stone are already acknowledged options, but there's also Fellwar Stone and Everflowing Chalice. Additionally, if you can swing it Extraplanar Lens is pretty killer in mono decks. Couple it with snow lands and it's dirty asymmetrical ramp assuming nobody else is running the same snows as you. It's not a budget option by any means but it's still an option.
I like your deck and its theme. :^) Hope this helps.

I'd also recommend swapping out Thran Dynamo and Gilded Lotus for cheaper cmc rocks like Arcane Signet and Fellwar Stone. You want to be able to get your ramp out fast in the early turns and spend the later turns making your plays. Would you rather be dropping a mana rock, or something that makes an impact like Purphoros, God of the Forge?
I love your inclusion of Extraplanar Lens. I'm a big advocate for the card in mono decks that can swing it in their budget. I would, however recommend running snow lands along with it, as you're less likely to see an opponent running snow mountains than regular mountains, meaning asymmetrical ramp for you. Maybe your playgroup is all about the snow lands though and normal mountains are the play.
This deck might also benefit a lot from stack interaction like Pyroblast and Red Elemental Blast. Always good to have some control over whether or not your stuff resolves (or if an opponent combos off or not).
I like your deck! It's a solid list all around with a fun core concept. Hope this helps! :^)

Extraplanar Lens is always a nice option in mono decks when coupled with snow lands, and you've already got the snow lands. Provides pretty solid asymmetrical ramp assuming your opponents aren't running snows of the same type as you. You could also probably make use of Academy Ruins and Cephalid Coliseum.
Solid list so far. Nice job. :^)

As for your maybe vs main I don't see why Goblin Cannon is there... maybe I'm missing a combo, not sure. Wilderness Reclamation would be a nice addition though I think especially combined with Seedborn Muse which you have.

Never considered this your commander before but they seem pretty fun. There's honestly not much I would change, this is a pretty solid list. Just for the hell of it though here are some cards you may or may not like:
I recognize this next bit is by no means a budget option, but Extraplanar Lens coupled with snow lands in mono decks offers some pretty killer asymmetrical ramp, assuming nobody else is running the same snows as you.
I like your deck! Hope this is of some use to you.

Whirlwind This is a situational bordwipe that will usually be a dead card in your hand. Depends on your meta though. If flyers are a big problem from one player, then the best removal is player removal I say.
Sylvan Awakening You’ll generally want to use your mana for Ezuri, not for lands.
Naturalize You’ve got quite a bit of this kind of destruction anyway. You can cut the worst one.
I’d also suggest running more basics to make better use of Extraplanar Lens. I’m not a fan of Zhalfirin Void, and since you can just regenerate your blockers, Maze of Ith and Labyrinth of Skophos seem unnecessary. I do like Labyrinth, though, since you can remove blockers and let damage trample over, but with that much mana you could also just activate Ezuri again. Probably get more damage in that way, too. If you need them to deal with voltron commanders, they are pretty useful, then. Just try to keep track of how many times the pesky creatures have hexproof to see if it’s worth it to run the lands.

Now I'm no Godo player, but I do know that a lot of his competitive pilots run Lion's Eye Diamond. You'd probably also want Dockside Extortionist and Mox Diamond, but it just occurred to me you might be building him on somewhat of a budget so this probably isn't very helpful lol. You could try Extraplanar Lens and snow lands for nice asymmetrical ramp. Hope I was at least of some help. :^)
