Meh. Not a real fan of any of the walkers in this set.

wall of text warning, sorry i got a little carried away, i love Zacama, and been playing a lot of it so i couldn't resist trying to help another player out.
My thoughts on your artifacts:
Doubling Cube it's not very good in a zacama deck as it's not really recur-able like the other mana doublers.
Sunforger it's essentially 8 mana to tutor for an instant, that's mana better spend just drawing cards, or better tutors.
The Immortal Sun if you're trying to stop a lot of planeswalker in your meta, keep it, otherwise it's too expensive of a cast.
after you cut those artifacts add in Stony Silence and/or Null Rod which adds more stuff for your enlightned tutor to fetch. this will not really stop you other than your equipments, sol ring, and mana vault (which I MIGHT cut, up to you though on that one) which is waaay less important than everyone else's rocks that they're probably relying on more than you.
thoughts on Enchantments:
Aura Shards you're not running enough creatures to really benefit you, and Zacama IS aura shards.
Aggravated Assault + Bear Umbra is cute at best, but outside of that just a straight double strike is just better than wasting your time with this combo, other than Etali you don't really benefit from additional combat steps.
Dictate of Karametra, Heartbeat of Spring, Zhur-Taa Ancient don't help other players, unless your deck is fast enough to win on the turn these come out, you're helping 3 other players that's NOT you. that's a strict 3 to 1 disadvantage no matter how much more lands you have. if you really want another doubler, Zendikar Resurgent.
Sunbird's Invocation is another cute card, and in a zacama deck i feel like it's just more a "win-more" card than actually helping you advance your board state, specially for it's mana cost.
please let me know how successful you've been with Food Chain + Myth Unbound combo works out for you, i thought about it, but didn't pull the trigger for it yet. Also how is Shapers' Sanctuary working out for you? i like 1 drops, and ones that can draw you cards is even better. On average how many cards do you think you draw from that card per play?
Banefire is that to remove planeswalkers? if so that's actually pretty smart, i didn't think of using it that way, but it's good to have.
Plea for Guidance this is to get your aggravated assault/bear umbra or food chain/myth unbound combo i assume, any other combos i'm missing? it's pretty expensive to play, 6 mana to search, then another 6-14 mana to get those other combos going. If you decide to keep it, i recommend adding Abundance to combo with Sylvan Library pick up lands or non lands to your liking and not pay life.
other than that, i'd recommend more ramp spells and tutors:
Rampant Growth, Hunting Wilds (don't ever pay the kicker), and Traverse the Outlands gets crazy as soon as Zacama drops, Kodama's Reach and Cultivate wouldn't hurt. Hour of Promise ramps AND searches for ANY land.
Uncage the Menagerie can play well too, but you'll have to actually build your deck around it a bit more to actually be effective.
As far as creatures go, i recommend the mana dork squad, having a consistent turn 1 play every game will really affect your board state advantage, having 3 mana on turn 2 is a big difference, specially for all the ramp spells you want to be casting.
Chameleon Colossus is a great creature for mana sink, pump it up, then you can Soul's Majesty it, or similar effect with it.
Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma and Spellbreaker Behemoth this is hit and miss. you only really have 7-10 creatures they actually affect, if you feel like you're running enough green, Emerald Medallion can be better value than goreclaw, and Vexing Shusher and Prowling Serpopard would affect more of your deck than spellbreaker.
Whitemane Lion combo's with Panharmonicon to infinitly bounce zacama for the same mana cost as Temur, if temur ever gets exiled. also having flash, can save a creature in case of a removal or something.
Garruk, Primal Hunter is pretty much another Soul's Majesty. it's worth the slot even for just a 1 time use draw card when your fatties are out.
Recursion, your deck is lacking pretty much every basic form of it. Eternal Witness and Regrowth are just green staples. and personally, i would cut Praetor's Counsel for Seasons Past it's cheaper to cast, and will get back most of what you need anyways.
also i would up your land count to 36-38 your deck's average CMC is too high to be greedy on lands.
Kessig Wolf Run is just another quality land.

Here I am from reddit with my critique:
- You need more mana doublers Mana Reflection/Mana Flare/Heartbeat of Spring/Regal Behemoth
- You need more tutors Sidisi, Undead Vizier/Demonic Tutor/Vampiric Tutor
- Add Squandered Resources in case you dont have Dwarven Ruins also allows combo with Nykthos and 5 devotion
- Add Dark Depths + Thespian's Stage combo
- replace mana dorks with land based ramp Wayward Swordtooth/Wood Elves
- Add Woodland Bellower to tutor Eternal Witness/Lotus Cobra/Tireless Tracker/Wayward Swordtooth/Ramunap Excavator also add in Reclamation Sage to add artifact removal to that list

I don't like Faith's Reward. Teferi's Protection accomplishes the same thing for 1 mana less and can double as a fog in a pinch. If a sweeper catches you with your mana down, you're better off with Replenish or it's budget replacement Open the Vaults
Don't run Ever-Watching Threshold along side Propaganda, Ghostly Prison and Sphere of Safety. Sticking one of those is already enough to disincentivize everyone else from attacking you. You're just not going to trigger the card draw often enough, AND it's only 1 card per combat step. I might be on board if it was per creature. It's also unneed, we're up to 7 enchantress effects with one in the command zone if you want it. Drawing cards isn't going to be a problem.
I'm not really a fan of Genesis Wave outside of green decks that ramp crazy fast and cast it to put half their deck on the field. We want more tutor effects to get out our enchantresses and start snowballing. Eladamri's Call and Green Sun's Zenith both deserve spots. Commune with the Gods is pretty good too.
If you see any amount of Mizzix of the Izmagnus, Meren of Clan Nel Toth, Atraxa, Praetors' Voice or Infect decks in your meta, then you're nuts for not running Solemnity. Kind of odd to see Phyrexian Unlife in a deck without tbh. You'd be better off with Worship or even Island Sanctuary than running unlife by itself since it only buys you 10 points of life.
If you opt to not play Solemnity, you should run Parallax Wave. Parallax Wave + Opalescence or Starfield of Nyx means everyone else is done playing creatures, since you can just exile them all. For those that don't know how this works, it's basically the same as sacrificing Oblivion Ring in response to the first trigger. 1) with both parallax wave and opalescence out, exile an opponents creature. 2) HOLD priority and exile parallax wave to itself (opalescence turns it into a creature). 3) allow the stack to resolve. Parallax wave's second ability will remain in effect as it leaves the battlefield and immediately return it. The returning parallax wave is recognized as different wave than the one that just left play. 4) Allow the trigger exiling your opponents creature to resolve and it's gone for good. 5) repeat. You can also abuse this for infinite ETB triggers on your own creatures if you want.
You don't have any real ramp in your list as it is. Exploration and Burgeoning will let you play extra lands, but you still need to drawn them. Karametra only works when you cast a creature and you only run 14. Heartbeat of Spring helps your opponents as well as yourself. Zendikar Resurgent is expensive as shit and Mirari's Wake will rarely make around the table. The green enchant land cards will actually ramp you, and are quite good. They're a bit better in an Estrid list, but they worked very well for me in my G/W build. Abundant Growth (tho it's only fixing, not ramp), Fertile Ground, Overgrowth, Utopia Sprawl and Wild Growth are all worth slots. The other 3&4 CMCs aren't as great, with Weirding Wood being the best.

Someone at my lgs has a chaos deck that runs these cards, headed by Maelstrom Wanderer. Some notable includes are most of the cheap mana doublers, such as Heartbeat of Spring and Overabundance, Jokulhaups and Obliterate, Warp World, Psychic Battle, Uba Mask, and Timesifter.
