I think one thing to pay a little closer attention to is not 'what is the card' but 'what does it do for the deck'. Example: Blackblade Reforged is and equipement. But what does it do? It makes a creature bigger based on land. It cares about number of land in play. I would put it with other cards that care about land such as Bountiful Harvest, Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar, and Crash of Rhino Beetles. That gives you an idea of how many lands you want to have out.
Cards like Sakura-Tribe Elder and Yavimaya Elder I would put with your 'Land Tutors'. I tend to separate cards like Budoka Gardener Flip into 'Land Drop'...cards that allow you to 'drop' or play more lands per turn. We're definitely going to be looking for more of those in the future! Plummet and Reclamation Sage are definitely 'Destruction' cards.
A few of the cards, like Wings of Hubris and Poison-Tip Archer, don't seem to have an answer...at least not a good one...for 'what does this do for the deck'. Archer likes lots of creatures to die. Does your deck want that? Not really. Wings wants to allow a big giant thing to hit someone really hard. Does your deck need help with that? Not really...most of your big things already trample.
On the bright side, this gives us more room for more goodies for the deck!

epott It's not silly! I totally get not playing the ascension, but thought it should be recommended in the event you hadn't thought of it! I also get the downsides to Rampage of the Clans. I'm a bit of a chaotic/go-for-the-crazy-move kind of player so it's a card I love. Glad you like the Tower Defense rec. That was an easy one to upgrade.
I do love the flavor you have going on in your Artifact department. I missed that before!
Lastly, I notice a lack of board wipes (unless I missed something on your list or it's another flavor/casual choice over competitive then you can ignore this). But Wave of Vitriol, The Great Aurora, Bearer of the Heavens, Obliterate, Decree of Annihilation, Hour of Devastation could be some options for you. (Creeping Renaissance as something to bring back a permanent type if you're looking for that as well.)
If you have the time I'll take feedback on my budget version of Gallia. It's far from great and I have yet to actually use the deck but it never hurts to get another pair of eyes on something. No worries if you don't!

So I have a Seedborn Muse and a Vedalken Orrery on the battlefield. My opponent casts Doom Blade, targeting the Seedborn Muse. In response I flash Shalai, Voice of Plenty, giving hexproof to all my creatures. My opponent lets the Angel resolve, then hold priority and casts Plummet, targeting Shalai, Voice of Plenty. Shalai dies. Will Seedborn Muse die from the impending Doom Blade or did the spell already fizzle due to the target becoming invalid for the short time Shalai, Voice of Plenty was on the battlefield?
I have the same board. My opponent casts pacify, targeting the Seedborn Muse. I let the pacify resolve. At end of turn, I flash Shalai, Voice of Plenty, giving hexproof to all my creatures. What happens to the pacify? Does it stay attached?

It's worth noting that part of reach's flavor is "anti-flying" (e.g. many creatures with reach are archers, depicted as being able to shoot flying creatures out of the sky), which is very much a green thing ( Plummet ).

A better alternative to Root Snare is Fog . I also recommend Leyline of Abundance for your ramp. I would also recommend more eldrazi, or just a way to search them out, because right now you don't have a very good chance of getting them. I would bump it up to 4x Llanowar Elves and cut 2x Elfhame Druid . Replace the last Elfhame Druid with another eldrazi (You will still need more). A better alternative to Naturalize is Return to Nature . Plummet should not be in the main board. Druid of the Cowl should be replaced by Elvish Mystic . Even tough it has less toughness it can start producing mana on turn 2 rather than 3. As for the buff spells, most eldrazi decks wont have those because eldrazi are already so big. The reason i gave better alternatives for Root Snare and Naturalize is because i don't know what to replace them with other than a better version, but there is probably something better.

+2: Destroy target Oko Planeswalker
-1: Search target plane or player's deck for any instance of Oko and remove him from the game.
-8: Cast Plummet , Overrun , Naturalize , Rabid Bite , and any other green spells you have in your hand. And, um, draw some cards. But no more than the number of creatures you have. Or their power. Yeah, definitely their power. Gain 4 life.
If there's anything Garruks hates it's a crown - especially Oko's crown, cuz he stole it that little-
Sadly, there's this in regards to a centaur walker:
"We’ve done the market research for Magic," Rosewater said on his Blogatog after a fan asked about why Wizards of the Coast rarely designs a world with no humans. "The majority of players like having Humans. The planeswalkers that resonate best are Human. The legendary creatures that resonate best are Human. That’s why we tend to have a lot of Humans in the game and on most worlds."
I hope you're right though, it'd be an interesting direction to take.

I'm not saying you must put all of them in. When designing a sideboard, it's a good idea to think of how to deal with different matchups. for instance Plummet deals with flying decks, The Elderspell deals with super friends, and Relic of Progenitus would deal with reanimator decks.
