Creature — Elf Druid
When Farhaven Elf enters the battlefield, you may search your library for a basic land card and put it into play tapped, then shuffle your library.

Yo Chandra585, first thing that I kind of noticed is that your running 32 lands. For a avg. CMC curve of 3.53, that is fairly low. In inclusion of it as well, you aren't running much ramp effects to match the curve as well. Since you want a mix of both flicker effects, ETB value, as well as good stuff value, I would consider adding in Brago, King Eternal . Single use burst plays aren't formidable enough in EDH unless it's a mass one, so I would cut out all the single target flicker cards with mass one like Ghostway . In addition, ramp creature or card advantage creatures should be considered like:
This would help you get more mana, as Roon can be quite an mana intensive deck. With that being said, Peregrine Drake is a great enabler to allow you have open mana at all times. Cloud of Faeries as well, but that's only if you have access to broken type of lands like Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx or Gaea's Cradle .
I would also consider including Wargate (bias on this amazing card!) as well as Chord of Calling , as it has awesome interaction with Eternal Witness or Archaeomancer in allowing you pull any creatures from your deck, provided you have the mana for it! Wargate does double duty in pulling any permanents to the battlefield!
For protection package as well there are cards like Heroic Intervention and Faith's Reward as your oh shit button in the event where you need to protect everything. That goes along for Teferi's Protection as well. Being in Bant colors gives you a plethora of options and there are much things you can actually do. I would also consider more consistent blinking effects like Conjurer's Closet since you are in a semi-competitive meta as it is a threat but only a threat depending on what you have on the field. Same reasoning for Venser, the Sojourner , he also acts as triple duty in making additional ETB/LTB effects, if you add in Brago, making him unblockable, as well as win condition if he ults!
Along side that, Heartstone should become Training Grounds as reducing to is strictly better, and it makes Eldrazi Displacer cost only one colorless mana to blink which can get ridiculous value! Cards like Panharmonicon , Strionic Resonator , Illusionist's Bracers are a bit too finicky and are win-more type of cards. You can cut them out for efficiency, same with other creatures you run like Sigarda unless you are running her due to meta calls.
TL:DR - Add in some more lands, cut the big clunky win-more cards, use efficient spells to streamline deck. Wargate is a beast of a card and should definitely be included. Bant has so many choices so it depends on the level you want to build.
Hope that helps and feel free to ask for any more help, I like helping people deck tune their decks!

If there were a hypothetical card similar to Farhaven Elf that had you search out a land "as [this] enters the battlefield" then you still wouldn't be able to make the play you're trying to achieve. In that example you would be applying the replacement effect as part of completing the resolution of the spell, and players don't have priority to take actions while a spell is resolving.
In your example, the only real way to get a land from Farhaven Elf and another land off the top through Oracle of Mul Daya is to get lucky after shuffling your library. You can't play a land while the Elf is on the stack and you can't play a land while its triggered ability is on the stack. The ability triggers and is put onto the stack immediately after it enters the battlefield, with no space in-between to take another action.

Just to note, if the top card continues to be a land after the Farhaven Elf 's ability resolves, as I assume it is your main phase, you can simply play that land. Note that putting the land into play does not count towards your limit of 2 lands per turn with Oracle of Mul Daya .
Edit: After re-reading the premise, I assume that something like Beast Whisperer is also on the field, allowing you to draw a card upon casting the elf. As per above, unless the stack is empty, you cannot play lands.

Note: I couldn't use the Oracle's ability before casting the Elves because the top of my library wasn't a land, but I got a card draw out of the cast. That did reveal a land.

I think you need to utilize the ability of ramping with green and elves way more.
Add Elvish Archdruid , Rofellos, Llanowar Emissary , Joraga Treespeaker , Farhaven Elf , Wirewood Channeler and there are plenty more if you search for them. I would include more ramp spells as well, not only Cultivate as you have it, but also Rampant Growth , Explosive Vegetation , Kodama's Reach and so on.
To be honest: For a really fast Eldrazi Deck I would probably go with Nikya of the Old Ways as a commander and add Zhur-Taa Ancient , Neheb, the Eternal , Grand Warlord Radha . But I don't know if you would like to change the deck this much.
So have fun either way, I hope it helps!
