Hey man. Your list seems okay on paper, but I've been playing Saffi for almost 3 years now, and can see a lot of problems that your list is sure to run in to in a real game.
Immediate changes I would make:
- Naturalize >> Nature's Claim
- Angelic Renewal >> Survival of the Fittest
- Scattered Groves >> Brushland
These cards will accelerate your deck more than you know.
Furthermore, you should make slots for better pieces of protection, as other decks at the table that run more advantageous colors like Blue and Black, and will surely out-pace you, even at full power. Sylvan Tutor is an instant include to speed you up, as are Summoner's Pact and Chord of Calling. You lands that enter tapped should be replaced with better options, such as Mana Confluence and/or City of Brass, as color fixing is a must. That being said, Glacial Chasm should be there to protect you and be your best Crop Rotation target. For creatures to protect yourself please consider: Aegis of the Gods or True Believer, and Tajuru Preserver.
Lastly, I would drop the Skullclamp/Mentor of the Meek package. You're taking up too many card slots devoted to something to is inefficient is terms of mana usage. If you really want to get card draw down, please use Soul of the Harvest (and check out how Loyal Retainers gets you there with Soul and with Fecundity).
All in all this is a fairly solid list, but don't be afraid to check out mine!

Loyal Retainers - could be a very good addition for the deck. And if You add Survival of the Fittest You can start by discarding any Legendary creature (for example Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite) tutor for Loyal Retainers, and reanimate Elesh Norn.
Have You consider Grasp of Fate?
Mana Vault, cuz it will increase speed of the deck

PookandPie SynergyBuild First off just to give everyone a little more information my meta consists of Animar, Zur Shimmer Storm, Paradox Arcum, Gitrog Frog, Chain Veil Teferi, Jarard Protean Hulk, and then a bunch of random more casual stuff, however the mentioned lists are fully competitive. Natural Order will definitely be getting tested at some point since I've yet to struggle to get a green creature out. As for Manglehorn I've been on the fence about it for a while. I also play a cEDH Yisan list that runs it and it does very well there, although I may cut Elvish Piper for it. This is the first graveyard focused deck I've built and initially I wanted to make sure I had enough ways to cheat protean hulk out but I haven't had a situation where Piper is the fastest answer. Usually Fauna Shaman ends up functioning like I want Piper to. Toxic Deluge probably would end up hurting this deck more than helping because Animar is the only other deck in my meta where creatures really matter.Loyal Retainers has been such a flex slot I still haven't bought it in paper haha I mostly just wanted the redundancy of Rallier in case one got exiled or whatever. I've only managed to get about 10 real games in and it's performing well right now but there's definitely room for improvement, and yes you're correct in assuming Bloom Tender will be replacing Caryatid. I'd also like to work Elesh Norn into the deck so I could have another game changing reanimation target, but I'm not sure if it is worth running if I don't also run the Living Plane combo with it. Again thanks for the help!

Dankey, Don't worry about it, I try and answer all questions as best as I can :)!
First and foremost What this deck tries to do is enforce soft locks to hinder early strategies and make sure we don't lose in the first few turns. This makes it so we can set up for a midgame hard lock or prevent people from doing what they wanted to do (for example tutor a Aven Mindcensor vs an opponents Yisan, the Wanderer Bard or search for Kataki, War's Wage against artifact decks around turn 1 - 2 - 3 - 4), We do this because our late game is comparably poor to other decks out there and we don't recover too well generally if we don't have a good time early on...
This doesn't mean we don't have outs in the late game! Because my meta is filled with mana dorks and combo's that use creatures with low toughness for which I prefer to use Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite! if this does not apply to you and people play a lot of control, for example, you could switch Elesh for Iona!
(You can still do the same trick with either Fauna Shaman or Survival of the Fittest and pitch Iona to find Loyal Retainers and put her live really early on! Although I think it is a harder to cast card even with the ramp we run because of the triple white)
