Praetor's Counsel for a single use "bring it all back to your hand" and Gurzigost for moving creatures back to the library. Eternal Witness paired with Deadeye Navigator can pull all the things back too.

Thaumatic Compass  Flip can be Journeyer's Kite #2 with upside and should be fairly cheap.

Aggressive Mining is a favourite card of mine because at some point you just don't need to play your lands anymore. Note this doesn't prevent lands coming into play via other routes, just denies the one played per turn.

If you find yourself with no cards in hand and a full grave maybe consider Praetor's Counsel .

The most you can do once you start top decking is 3 damage per turn... You need draw engines dude.

Keen Sense and Snake Umbra create a pseudo infinite combo with your commander, as it says "damage" not "combat damage", every bolt to your opponents face draws you a card. They both work with Zhur-Taa Druid as well, letting you draw as many cards as you have opponents each time it taps for mana.

Gratuitous Violence doubles the damage of your bolts. Abundance would allow you to draw a non-land when you have a hand full of lands and no commander out. It makes a combo with Sylvan Library (which is not budget) that lets you draw 3 cards of the type of your choice at the beginning of each turn. Ramunap Excavator would add a lot of value. Boundless Realms would be stupid good in here with all those basics. A future upgrade might be to build around Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle . Praetor's Counsel returns your hold yard to your hand, so if it's full of lands you basically win the game.

Anyways, just some advice. I also run a Borborygmos Commander list. I only run 39 lands, so my style is a bit different than yours, but you I run all of the aforementioned cards, so you might find some ideas.

oh also Creeping Renaissance just in case muldrotha gets killed also Praetor's Counsel and Genesis Wave for late game seems good as well.

_Delta_ I cut Myojin of Infinite Rage , Carnage Tyrant , Splendid Reclamation , Sekki, Seasons' Guide , Ramunap Excavator , Garruk's Horde , and Praetor's Counsel . I have a sneaky suspicion that you suggested quite a few of those because of the "land destruction" flavor which really doesn't fit the overall theme of the deck. I can see cutting the mana-dorks...but I might add in Arbor Elf .

Hello, I thought I would lend a hand as much as I can for now. I will try to help more later tonight when i'm done with school/work. These cards below represent what I think you should cut, unfortunately however I don't have the time to write out in detail why I think all of these 13 cards should be cut currently, but I'm sure you can figure out some and I can try to explain these choices more later if need be.

Myojin of Infinite Rage , Carnage Tyrant , Yeva, Nature's Herald , Splendid Reclamation , Sekki, Seasons' Guide , Ramunap Excavator , Garruk's Horde , Lifeline , Zhur-Taa Druid , Praetor's Counsel , Radha, Heir to Keld , Leyline of Lifeforce , and Loaming Shaman .

As I have said, I will try to be of help later on when I can, but I do hope for now some of this is of help to you!

Have you thought about adding in tutors to streamline the deck even more. Or adding in cards like Seismic Assault in conjunction with Zuran Orb or as you have Squandered Resources to have synergy with Creeping Renaissance/Shadow of the Grave/Praetor's Counsel.

Some card you might have missed also for ramp (Oracle of Mul Daya) and protection (Constant Mists).

Hope that helps!
