As an additional cost to cast Harrow, sacrifice a land.
Search your library for up to two basic land cards, put them onto the battlefield, then shuffle your library.

One thing to consider for a Commander deck with access to Green is that grabbing extra lands is often a much more reliable version of ramp than artifacts. I would probably cut a couple of the artifacts to add things like Rampant Growth , Kodama's Reach , Farseek , Grow from the Ashes , Harrow , etc.
Another great card for hydra decks is Rosheen Meanderer as well, although the deck might need a few more x-cost spells for it to be worth it. I don't know how well your deck plays personally, but I would probably also increase the land count to at least the low-mid 30s.
One other thought I might leave you with is that the deck seems VERY green-focused. You could probably have a really cool build if you did something like cut the red cards, replace them with land, and make Selvala or Nylea your commander.
No matter what I suggest though, if you have a good time playing the deck, then that's really the most important thing. My suggestions and doing things like checking out other people's lists on here for inspiration can maybe help make the deck more consistent, but ultimately it's your own creation so focus on having fun first. Welcome to the format, I hope you like it!

Mathmagician Oh, yes I forgot about Springbloom Druid . It's a pretty good card, but it's basically a worse Harrow since the lands enter tapped. I imagine that the 1/1 body could be useful for blocking so it's up to you which one is worth the slot.
And about Sundering Growth , yes I definitely need to put that one in there over Broken Bond . The populate effect is insane in this deck. As far as Rootborn Defenses goes, it's awesome and I'd encourage you to put it in the deck if you add some white mana sources. As far as my build goes I'd prefer to stick with the two colors, but I'm sure the deck would benefit from that inclusion.
Thanks so much for the suggestions and playtesting! :) I've got plenty of other decks that could possibly use your help too lol

Pretty minute but where's your stance on trading Cultivate or Reacharound for Harrow ?

I would strongly reccommend decreasing creatures/elementals in favor of more dedicated ramp like Khalni Heart Expedition , Harrow , Kodama's Reach , Sakura-Tribe Elder and Myriad Landscape . In my experience if you can cast Omnath and then focus on triggering landfall you'll assemble a board state quickly. In terms of card draw Elemental Bond , Life's Legacy and Greater Good are incredible with those 5/5 elementals. Because Omnath is such an expensive general playing Swiftfoot Boots would probably help.
I would recommend replacing high cmc creatures like Bloodpyre Elemental , Silverglade Elemental , and Hearthcage Giant to speed up the deck. I'd also look at replacing cards like Pilgrim's Eye , Crater Elemental , Fire Shrine Keeper , Cinder Elemental , and Catalyst Elemental as they don't really have payoff without lots of mana or omnath, in which case ramping into a 5/5 seems better

I'd replace Throes of Chaos with Harrow in a heartbeat. Springbloom Druid is good in the same vein. Collective Voyage and Scapeshift can do insane work too, if you're looking for more landfall triggers.

I have some possible suggestions for colorless mana sources for Displacer. In my experience the more times you can activate it the more value you can get so I have all these extra colorless sources in my deck that uses Displacer:
Riftstone Portal : Can tap for colorless while it's on the field and if it ends up in the graveyard can let you lands tap for either of your colors(maybe not as important in a two color deck but it could help). I have Harrow and Crop Rotation in my deck to help get it in the graveyard.
Wooded Bastion : Really good land overall and can easily slot in for almost any of your current lands. Can make both your colors and can tap for colorless if you need it.
It might not be a bad idea to throw in a couple of Wastes as well that you can tutor up with Cultivate . Oh, and don't forget that Reflecting Pool can tap for colorless if you have another land that taps for colorless.

Also, I find Harrow is another ramp spell that doesn't see enough play. Sure you have to sacrifice a land, but it's instant speed and the lands come into play untapped.
