Actually, I did remove Blessings of Nature a while ago but made a mistake editing.

Bear Umbra so you can cast on your second main phase.
Sublime Archangel since this deck is a voltron (commander only) based deck.
Swords to Plowshares is a cheaper alternative to Path to Exile and let's face it, you'll be hitting hard enough!
Enlightened Tutor because aura decks are meant to make one big, unstoppable creature fast, and tutoring is the way to get that.
I also recommend removing taplands and return lands like Gruul Turf, they slow you down to much.
Chromatic Lantern instead of Obelisk of Naya for consistency.
Angelic Benediction another good exalted card.
Cultivate and Kodama's Reach are required cards for green decks, they're just TOO good. Explosive Vegetation is also a good one.
I know it's not exactly a good suggestion, but if you want to build a deck around attacking with a really buffed up aura creature, you could try switching commanders to someone like Rafiq of the Many. Running blue will allow you auras like Steel of the Godhead and Aqueous Form, as well as Finest Hour. Creatures like Bruna, Light of Alabaster and Sovereigns of Lost Alara are amazing aswell, especially Bruna as a commander.
Good luck sir!

This is a great start, but allow me to provide a couple of replacements that will make this deck even scarier:
Gruul Turf is not only a color fixing land, but if you don't have any lands to play, it can bounce itself, meaning you get landfall every turn.
Blessings of Nature, Crater Elemental, Generator Servant, Lightning Bolt, Nova Chaser, and Hornet Nest are all effects that don't synergize with your commander in that big of a way, so I'd suggest replacing those with Evolutionary Leap, Nissa's Renewal, Rampaging Baloths, Khalni Heart Expedition, Courser of Kruphix, Where Ancients Tread, and Warstorm Surge.

You said you are concerned with your mana base. Here are some considerations for you:

Hi Aethos! Blind Obedience is playable because Extort is considered reminder text of the mechanic, not card text, for the purpose of color identity. It's a pretty odd rule, but a helpful one for decks like these! The core combo is flexible, which is part of the reason I used this general. The most obvious variation is + , with a few creatures on the board. Playing the 'swarm with buyback untaps all your creatures, who can then tap to play it again. This draws through your entire deck, creates unlimited tokens, which themselves have arbitrarily high power and toughness. When you draw Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre, you hold him until you get Anger in hand, then pitch Ulamog, getting your graveyard back in the deck, and then pitch anger on the next cycle, giving your saprolings haste. If you don't have a mountain, you dig until you find a relevant land or a land tutor, if you've already dropped your land for the turn. As a side effect, if you have the critical mass of creatures to repeat Sprout swarms,you will also generate unlimited mana, which makes it possible to also win by targeting opponents with Blue Sun's Zenith, or by digging until you find Laboratory Maniac. There are other variants on the combo though. + + is also infinite, replacing the draw trigger with a dredge, then casting life from the loam to get 3 lands, then casting Flame Jab either once or twice, depending on how many cards you want to draw on the cycle. This can also generate infinite mana, draw your entire library, and requires fewer mana generating creatures on the board, being possible with only a Fatestitcher and Gruul Turf. The fact that it can go off with only a single piece in play(ascendancy) and two to three in the yard is what drew me to this deck in the first place! Obviously Intuition would be massive in this deck, but the price limitations this version operates on necessities cutting it. Since I started working on it, more possibilities have emerged. + + is infinite as well, assuming you get reasonably lucky with your Selvala activations! Rather than relying on + to get a draw for dredge, you use Selvala's activation. This is a bit risky, since giving your opponents massive portions of their deck is dangerous.I really should have put this stuff in the description, shouldn't I?

Budget manabase suggestions - other Karoo lands: Gruul Turf, Orzhov Basilica, Selesnya Sanctuary, Boros Garrison, Rakdos Carnarium. Then more tri-lands: Naya Panorama, Jungle Shrine, Nomad Outpost, Jund Panorama, Savage Lands
