You can always check the Oracle text on the Gatherer or Scryfall to see what the up-to-date version is. Additionally the pop-up for Manabond shows up-to-date text due to it showing a more recent printing.

You have already stated that Opal Palace was your plan B wincon, but have you ever considered running Seismic Assault as backup win condition? I understand that the mana cost is RRR, but considering you run 26 mountains I think it will be fine. While it interests me, I can't help but feel that it would require some support on its own to function at full capacity. However, by adding cards, such as Creeping Renaissance and Sunder, that put lands into our hand en masse would allow it to work very well (while also making Manabond an even stronger card!).
While on the subject of Creeping Renaissance I have a few more things I'd like to say about it. This seems to be a card that has potential within this deck due to its versatility (although, perhaps with a build more centered around the grave?). The main selling points being that it has flashback (in case it is milled by Life from the Loam or you just want to use it again) and that it says "choose permanent type". That could be significant in the scenario where you need to retrieve some stax pieces that have been previously destroyed.
While I'm talking about all of these cards I might as well go more in depth about Sunder too! I think this could be used as a devastating blowout, provided we could rebuild quicker than our opponents with abilities like Burgeoning and Walking Atlas. The only issue is that its casting cost has UU in it, which is the rarest color in the deck.
I'd really like to hear your thoughts on these three big cards

This is a very interesting build. Like the focus on centering around and interacting with Damia. I'm going to look through my collection and build a Damia list with your strategy as the foundation. I will tag you once it's posted.

I just began playing EDH a couple of months ago and my first deck was a Child of Alara land deck that used Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle as the primary win condition. Recently I have wanted to change the commander and possibly shave off a color or two in the process! While researching more land based commanders I stumbled upon your temur build and it grabbed my interest. Due to this I have lots of questions :)
Why are you running Meloku the Clouded Mirror instead of Trade Routes? It has a much lower CMC, dodges prevalent creature removal, and has a second ability that could be relevant in certain situations. Also Llanowar Scout is literally just a better Budoka Gardener. They have the same ability although his body is better and he wont forcefully change into a different creature. His body is also better than Walking Atlas but because the atlas is colorless it is still great and definitely deserves a spot.
One interesting card I stumbled upon is Hedron Crab as he helps fill your graveyard. Do you think it could be a useful card?
Would you ever use the card Clear the Land? It is a way to put land onto the battlefield, but it presents a risk as it could exile any number of cards. The card would be hilarious if someone tutored before your turn and was forced to exile what they wanted.
Is Return to the Earth worth the extra cost when compared to something like Naturalize? I understand that it kills Aven Mindcensor and the cost is less important when you have lots of lands, but it still seems very heavy.
I really like the card Excavation and have seen a card that is kind of similar but also quite different called Aggressive Mining. Maybe it could be used before the 'big turn' to try and find more fuel for a Manabond or something else? Plus the sacrificed lands could be easily recurred and used later. I'm curious to see if you would you ever use this, why or why not?
Would you ever consider shifting the deck to Lord Windgrace or do you thing that would make the deck less reliable? By gaining black you would have access to more tutors, but you already have land tutors and that is about all you need... But by losing blue you would eliminate lots of sources of card draw and stax effects. So I guess answered my own question lol, but still want to hear your opinion.
Alright! I think that is all of the questions I have at the moment. Thank you for sharing this deck! This may be the way I want to change my Child of Alara deck and your answers will help me fully decide this.

to draw a lot of your deck after you have Rampaging Baloths go nuts with Manabond on the field. If Scavenging Ooze was on the field as well, all those cards you just discarded will pump Scavenging Ooze
