Since your commander costs 5, ramping twice on the first two turns allows it to land on turn 3. Of course there are a couple cards like Sol Ring and Joraga Treespeaker which can accomplish that all by themselves, but otherwise you will need to cast a ramp spell on both of the first two turns. In order to make that happen, you usually need a 1cmc ramp spell on the first turn, and you don't have many of those currently. Some of your Signets could make room for Search for Tomorrow, Orcish Lumberjack (enables turn 2 Uril by himself, but maybe that's too all-in), Llanowar Elves / Fyndhorn Elves / Elvish Mystic, or Carpet of Flowers. (Many people underestimate that card, it's incredibly good. Sure, there is always a chance it's a dead card if there are no Islands, but that's really rare in competitive EDH rounds and quite often Carpet is even better than Sol Ring.)
As for your mana base: Reflecting Pool and Tarnished Citadel are solid mana fixers, despite having some drawbacks. I would definitely play them here. Forbidden Orchard doesn't work incredibly well with your commander, but it might still be better than a basic land or Jungle Shrine. In my experience, the "fast lands" Copperline Gorge, Razorverge Thicket and Inspiring Vantage are a little more reliable than Rootbound Crag, Sunpetal Grove and Clifftop Retreat.
I was surprised not to find Ethereal Armor in your list. Do you think it's not good enough? I can't really claim to know if what's correct in that case, but assumed the card was too good not to play.
Also, you currently have zero answers to planeswalkers in your 99, and also nothing against artifacts and enchantments unless you sideboard your one Krosan Grip. That might be a justified metagame call, but are you sure you don't want access to at least Song of the Dryads or Beast Within? Especially the Song seems useful since you have so many tutors that can find it.

I would start by picking a win condition (or at least theme if you're more into that style of play) to get fully behind. It sounds like for you that may be "making clones".
The next thing I would consider would be speed. Right now you deck seems a bit on the slow side. As you are in green, you have a very affordable to go fast with more Mana Dorks:
In most EDH lists, it is prudent to run the mana rocks in your colors:
Life gain in EDH is kinda bad IMO. Remember, everyone in starting with 40 life so a lot of players look for alternatives ways to win the game. This includes combos, storm, infect, or commander damage. All of these ignore your life total so investing in cards like Tablet of the Guilds, Staff of the Mind Magus and Staff of the Wild Magus are a moot point. I would cut them both along with Aetherflux Reservoir.
On that note of infect, I would personally see about moving the deck to have an infect angle as an alternative way to win. The cards needed are usually budget such as Glistener Elf and Triumph of the Hordes. Infect is a great way to snag an unexpected win out of nowhere and has decent support in your U/G colors.
If you end up wanting to dive hard into the higher tiers of EDH let me know. I have some budget lists to get people into the higher powered meta's.

You're playing 17 creatures (18 with commander). I don't see Rite being worth a spot, but rather than swap it for Nature's Lore why not instead cut Rite, Skyshroud Claim, and Cultivate for any three 1 CMC mana dorks? You've got BoP already so Llanowar Elves, Fyndhorn Elves, and Elvish Mystic fit the bill. If you cut another card somewhere else you could include Boreal Druid as well. Having more mana dorks will also improve the return on your Gaea's Cradle while enabling you to have impressively fast starts.
I'd keep Jin IF you can cheat him into play early. This is why he's typically better in UBx lists. His value goes under the reasoning that if he does stick even as long as until the next player's upkeep, let alone halfway around the table, you've gotten a ton of value from him as the seven fresh cards can often be enough to close a game out. But if you're paying 10 mana straight you should be winning the game outright at a competitive table, and if he's landing after a Palinchron+DEN combo then again... there's better things to do with infinite mana.
Keep Sylvan Scrying if you'd like another way to access your utility lands, but honestly I'd probably cut it for more fast mana. You don't have Mox Diamond or Chrome Mox in the list yet, so cut a Snow-Covered Forest and Scrying for both if you have them in your budget. With a full suite of mana dorks and fast mana you can safely run 33-36 lands without being mana screwed. Given your curve is a little higher than most (for competitive), I wouldn't go lower than 35. Is the deck really so greedy for color fixing that you need Gemstone Mine in a two color deck? It seems unnecessary at best and a nonbo at worst - I'd cut it as well, perhaps for that Boreal Druid I mentioned above.
Finally, going to +1 your list for the inclusion of Delay alone. After Arcane Denial it's the most underplayed counterspell in EDH relative to its power.

I do like Dark Prophecy better, I'll look to swap that in. Deathcap Cultivator is outclasses by Sylvan Caryatid if I went for a two drop mana dork. The idea is to have as many turn one dorks as I can, as I want to get to six as fast as possible with prossh or I'll get ganged up on early. As such, I think I'll stick with Elves of Deep Shadow or Fyndhorn Elves for now.
Thanks for the look and the comments though!
