Hey Happy774 - glad I could help inspire you to build something :) It can be pretty explosive with it's damage!
As for alternatives.... Teferi's Protection is a tough one to replace because it's so good and we're already running Heroic Intervention. Perhaps something like Ajani's Presence would work as you won't have loads of cats out that need saving at once, or even Rootborn Defenses (or the new card from RNA that's similar?) - Possibly Blinding Fog or the rather expensive to cast Join Shields? None of them are as good sadly....
A swap for Rhonas the Indomitable would really be looking for something that enables trample as that's why he's in the deck. A quick Scryfall search throws up some stuff like Elvish Herder or Creeperhulk or Mosstodon but I'm not sure how great they'd be (they're also not cats, but then neither is Rhonas....)
Hope that helps!

Also no Loxodon Warhammer for flavor?
Very fun deck!

Nessian Wilds Ravager, Managorger Hydra and Phytotitan can be a little underwhelming- i'd recommend something to help deal with lots of creatures or removal spam- Asceticism is amazing, as are Endbringer, Farsight Mask, Whispersilk Cloak.
You could significantly boost ramp and group hug with Thousand-Year Elixir Magewright's Stone, Puppet Strings, and in large enough games just go infinite cards/mana with Staff of Domination, Sword of the Paruns and Umbral Mantle. Wirewood Lodge is also great.
With this many big creatures you should also look at Dramatic Entrance, Lure of Prey Quicksilver Amulet Dragon Arch, Norwood Priestess and Elvish Piper. Aspect of Mongoose can work well if everyone kills your commander at sorcery speed.
For more big creatures? Chorus of the Conclave, Autochthon Wurm, Novablast Wurm,Grove of the Guardian, Trostani's Summoner, (or the alara tradition of Vagrant Plowbeasts/Mosstodon/Beacon Behemoth/Paleoloth/Mycoid Shepherd/Sacellum Godspeaker/Spearbreaker Behemoth)
Hope this helps!
