Latest Decks as Commander
Grim Backwoods Discussion

For recursive lands: Mystic Sanctuary (Dumb Good), Witch's Cottage, Mortuary Mire all work once, but with flickerable effects it's all fine, and you can sacrifice Buried Ruin, Petrified Field, Sequestered Stash. Hall of Heliod's Generosity/Academy Ruins are insane in the right decks, and Emeria, The Sky Ruin is busted in the late game. Mistveil Plains sort of works as recursion, and is repeatable, but is best with tutors and tutor chains. Even Unholy Grotto works amazingly in zombie decks!
(Nonbudget versions would be like Volrath's Stronghold)
Removal is plentiful on lands, but pretty specific. Blast Zone is a favorite of mine, and is dumb good. Ghost Quarter, Field of Ruin, Dust Bowl, Encroaching Wastes, Memorial to War, and Tectonic Edge all deal with lands. Arena, Barbarian Ring, Blighted Gorge, Cabal Pit, Desert, Keldon Megaliths, Keldon Necropolis, Mouth of Ronom, Rath's Edge, Grasping Dunes, Ifnir Deadlands, and Quicksand are good against creatures, and some walkers.

Nice list! You might like these: Nature's Revolt, Squandered Resources, Cauldron of Souls, Blighted Woodland, Jund Panorama, Grim Backwoods, Pitiless Plunderer (this guy is really cool cuz sacking the treasures triggers Mazirek), Fleshbag Marauder, Tribute to the Wild, Nim Devourer (you can sack the nim to itself for its ability, so it essentially gives you the ability to pay BB: put a + counter on all your dudes), Sporeback Troll, Oona's Blackguard, Winding Constrictor

Also, what if I replaced Bramblecrush with Mythos of Nethroi? Bramblecrush is an excellent card, but it is a sorcery, whereas Mythos of Nethroi is an instant, and, while it is nice to be able to destroy an annoying land, I feel that having a lower converted mana cost and being able to be cast at any time are more important.

If you're concerned with overall CMC of the deck I would replace the Aura Mutation with Mythos of Nethroi and counter-balance it by replacing Armadillo Cloak with Dragon Fangs. You do lose the life-gain and it does give less power and toughness, but it's not a 1-time effect as you can always enchant your commander with it from the graveyard for free. Having consistent trample would really help your commander in being able to trigger his effect after all and you have plenty of other ways to give lifelink as well.
With that change the total CMC of your deck would stay the same as you're swapping a 2-cost and 3-cost for a 3-cost and a 2-cost.

I do not have time to comment on every card in Comamnder 2020, but I am very displeased that they again reprinted both Beast Within and Harmonize, when WotC has openly admitted that those two cards break the color pie, due to them allowing green to perform effects that it normally cannot do without the assistance of creatures; could they not have at least reprinted Generous Gift, instead?
Also, while I am glad that Odessey filter lands have been reprinted, again, to keep their prices low, why could WotC have not reprinted the allied-colored Shadowmoor filter lands, which are better in every possible way and really need to be reprinted? Are those cards too powerful for a preconstructed set?
However, I am very pleased that both Canopy Vista and Smoldering Marsh are being reprinted, since they were the only two lands from that cycle that have not yet been reprinted in a Commander set, which should definitely help to lower their prices.
A reprint of The Locust God is very nice, as that shall help to lower its price.
Akroma, Angel of Wrath is my favorite card in the entire game, so I shall not object to her being reprinted, again, but I do wish that WotC had kept the Terese Nielsen artwork only for her From the Vault printing, to keep it unique and special.
This year's Commander set was nice, but nothing spectacular, at least not for me, but I am remaining hopeful for Commander Legends, later this year.

I have a lot of recommendations for you. These may be pricey so I apologize if they're out of your price range but here you go:
Cards To Add Show
Add Reyhan, Last of the Abzan . If you can put +1/+1 counters on your creatures, your devourer will get HUGE real fast! Gets crazy too if you eat everything with Mycoloth and all those extra +1/+1 counters go to him.
Add Triumph of the Hordes . This cards a no brainer for token swarms and huge powerful armies. Remember, it only takes 10 infect to kill someone.
Add Moldervine Reclamation . Just a simple life gain/card draw engine for your devourers.
Cards To Swap Show
Replace Thorn-Thrash Viashino with Bloodspore Thrinax . Viashino doesn't provide any positive effects for devouring. Bloodspore Thrinax on the otherhand can push a token deck into an absurd board state.
Replace Mother Bear with Jade Mage . Mother Bear is situational and requires her to be in the graveyard prior to using her. And the value isn't all that great. With Jade Mage you can use all of your mana every turn to do at least something.
Replace Emrakul's Hatcher with Tendershoot Dryad . Emrakul isn't that great for your token production. Tendershoot on the other hand can buff all of your saprolings and in a 4 player game, it'll produce 3 tokens by the time it comes back to you.
Replace Algae Gharial with Poison-Tip Archer . You won't get much value out of Gharial. Poison-Tip Archer on the other hand can be lethal if kept on the board. It's basically a stronger Mayhem Devil .

So many good cards that could go with this commander that you just can't cram them all into one deck. Some items that I run in my Meren deck that could be of use here:
Grim Backwoods Another sac outlet plus additional card draw
Woodfall Primus , the persist is pretty abusable.
Murderous Rider removal then sac to the 'Pod and go get again with...
Fauna Shaman helps fill the yard while stacking the hand
Doom Whisperer big flier plus can fill the yard without paying additional mana
Swords to Plowshares because you will hate another deck that is doing what you're doing and exile is so necessary in this format.
