Each player who controls six or more lands chooses five lands he or she controls and sacrifices the rest. Each player who controls four or fewer lands may search his or her library for X basic land cards and put them into play, where X is five minus the number of lands he or she controls. Then each player who searched his or her library this way shuffles it.

Natural Balance Discussion
4 days ago
turn 1: land + free acceleration, Squandered Resourcesturn 2: 2nd land, tap both, sac both, Natural Balance --> get 5(!) untapped landstap the 5 new lands, Play The Gitrog Monster, sacrifice the lands one by one and draw 5 Cards with 5 mana Floating. with enough land searching spells in the deck this should be enough to Keep going until you draw into Dakmor Salvage and a discard outlet.
I would strongly suggest Kozilek, Butcher of Truth to be able to shuffle the milled cards back again. With Dakmor Salvage you basically draw every 2nd or 3rd card in the deck, so you might reach a point at which you have dredged through the whole library, have the kill spell(s) in the graveyard and nothing to take the needed cards back to your Hand either...by discarding Kozilek you can repeat the proces until you have everything you need on the hand.

Alright here is a ton of cards that seems to fit the theme. Some are definitely better then others I'm just giving a list of cards. Some of these cards are not budget
Hope you find something useful within all these!

However, the rest have issues:
- Meletis Charlatan and Spectral Searchlight are both cards that can be used to only give a benefit to you. This is why I wrote the first point under "What this list doesn't include" that way was to eliminate cards that aren't true group hug cards. Another example of cards like these is Heroes' Reunion, which is more obviously not a group hug card.
- Bazaar Trader gives you no reason/benefit to activate the ability, and as such, is not truly a group hug card for the list, as per the first point under "What this list includes".

Aethaleon I dig the ability, though I'd rather use it in a more snake heavy deck, and jordanalessi, I dig those two choices. Only question is how it would affect the mana base since this deck doesn't really have much ramp. I may end up starving myself since Natural Balance would be devastating if you were running mana rocks and the like. Good cards to keep in mind if I feel like pulling even more shenanigans.

And Natural Balance has the potential of benefitting everyone.

Infernal Tribute looks fine...I guess I'll remove Necropotence competely because it's too bad with the discard combo (which would be a winning combo, so it has to be preferred over a card that only helps in preparing the combo turn).
I've added Ulamog to keep dredging infinitely until I have a kill on my hand. The online test gave me several hands for a turn 3 kill, which happens easily with Squandered Resources and Natural Balance. turn 3 would be sacrificing 2 or 3 lands, playing natural balance, gitrog monster, draw 5 cards with 5-7 mana floating and that's it with a somehow decent draw. luckily the deck can go aggro as well, so I don't need to press hard for the combo when it's too risky.

I've owed you a comment for a while, and just never gotten around to it, sorry.
Mass land destruction is basically my least favorite thing in magic. Thus, I've never really experimented with it. However, I can definitely see how this deck works, and it's an interesting idea!
Jolrael is kind of in the wrong colors for what you want to do, unfortunately. If you had access to red, you could play Firestorm or similar cards, but AFAIK all green mass damage only hits creatures with flying. Same with wrath effects: they're mostly white or black.
However, what you CAN do is to threaten to animate up their lands in response to their board wipes (thus dissuading the use of board wipes, and green can overpower many decks when they lose access to their mass removal). I actually saw this deck and stole the idea for my Saskia deck (Thousand Victories: Saskia EDH), so I owe you one haha.
In terms of other land destruction, I'd add Natural Balance. Furthermore, you need need NEED Life from the Loam and Exploration to recur Wasteland and Strip Mine (in the latter case alongside Crucible of Worlds). Given that many of your lands also sacrifice themselves for effects, Titania, Protector of Argoth and Splendid Reclamation seem like good inclusions. Possibly a Restore too, to steal a particularly good land belonging to an opponent.
And in terms of general advice, every green deck becomes better when there's a Beast Within included.
I hope that helps! :)
