If you wanna lower your curve, Hornet Queen is awful top heavy for as little as it does for you. It's mostly just "go attack someone else until someone wraths." You have black, so you have better options when it comes to problem creatures.

I've always found Sheoldred, Whispering One to be a disappointment. She has two really powerful effects but both are dependent on game state; her abyss is useless if they have any fodder, and her Reya is only as strong as your graveyard on your upkeep. Both require her to survive a round.

From Beyond is just ok, and you don't have any Eldrazi to tutor for. I'd rather see Catacomb Sifter in my hand, 2 bodies is 2 turns for From Beyond and it gives you another dies trigger.

This deck would probably love Bloodghast and Victimize. I'd trade those out for Hornet Queen and Sheoldred.

Remove anything that doesn't say, "you may draw a card when a creature enters" or you might just deck yourself with your all-cheating. Momentous Fall, Soul's Majesty, or Life's Legacy could probably draw much better than Elemental Bond. With all the card draw this deck does, some redundancy with maximum hand size helps a lot. Spellbook, Library of Leng, Thought Vessel

I'm thinking a Brass Squire would be a nice inclusion, especially with some of my suggestions, or just because you move a lot of equipment around. Helm of the Host, can let you copy Grothama and have it fight itself for 20 cards drawn.

There are two big glaring weaknesses of this deck: Flyers, and removal. For removal best to worst: Beast Within, Song of the Dryads, Karn Liberated, Argentum Armor, Steel Hellkite, Spine of Ish Sah remove anything. Reclamation Sage, Acidic Slime, Bramblecrush, Woodfall Primus can slow down your opponents while building your board.

Never go without graveyard interaction, Tormod's Crypt, Scavenging Ooze, or Relic of Progenitus will put an end to the Spore Frog + Meren of Clan Nel Toth combo, Archaeomancer + Time Warp, and other shenanigans

Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar and Ulvenwald Hydra are both giant reach creatures that hang back on D. They can fight Grothama and live too, just be sure to Fog so they don't go attacking with 10 damage marked on them. Tornado Elemental, Whirlwind, or Hurricane can deal with your archetypal Angel, Demon, or Dragon, tribal decks. Alternatively, Deadly Recluse or Hornet Queen will make no one want to attack you

I have played something similar to this and always hated Fertile Thicket. Personally I was happier playing with more lands in general to help you get up to the big-uns like Hornet Queen and stay relatively on curve. Plus it’s kind of a nonbo with your Beacon of Creation.

Unyaro Bees are fantastic if your opponent can’t deal with them and play well with the mono-greenness.

More mana ramp so at least add Commander's Sphere or Mind Stone

Cards to remove imo: Primal Vigor you have a lot of the same card and this one is symmetrical effect so not as strong . Hornet Queen seems slow and a lot of green mana Legion's Landing very slow and the pay off isn't that great

A good card for Mono-Green Stompy is Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger.

I'm not sure if Hornet Queen is what your deck needs.

I agree with you that Hornet Queen is the best of those cards, but again, the spirit of this deck is to have something to play for a couple of bucks, and try cards that often don't see play.

If I wanted to make this actually competitive, I would end up playing a mono-green stompy with all the classical cards.

Sorry for the double comment, but I would also recommend removing some of the 1x cards like Vorapede, Ant Queen, and Living Hive so you can triple up on Giant Adephage and add another Hornet Queen for more consistancy.
