Creatures you control have trample. (If a creature you control would deal enough combat damage to its blockers to destroy them, you may have it deal the rest of its damage to defending player.)

In terms of ramp, most of the ramp you have are cards that push you only 1 mana ahead, which I think is too small of an effect unless it comes with another valuable effect. Because of this, I would drop Mina and Denn, Wildborn, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Rampant Growth, Animist's Awakening, and Gruul Signet for Worn Powerstone, Astral Cornucopia, Gyre Sage, Khalni Heart Expedition, and Overgrowth. That kind of upgrade to your ramp will ensure that you get huge creatures out very easily. If you want to see other cards that could also fit this role, check out MagicalHacker - List of All Ramp Cards, but I would say that this deck definitely needs cards that advance your manabase by two or more, so ignore the cards that only ramp you by one.
Secondly, I only see three cards in here for draw, so there's no wonder that this deck doesn't hold it's own! We have all been there at some point, so let me emphasize this point: Draw is the most important thing for 99% of decks. Draw will let you have options, draw will let you build board states quickly, and draw will make it harder for you to get mana screwed or mana flooded. All of these are very important. You have Harmonize, Lifeblood Hydra, and Citanul Flute, but let's try to get 7 more cards for draw in here. If you need to take some out after testing, that's fine, but I don't see that being a problem. Too much draw isn't usually a problem with 10 cards that draw in the deck, so I think you should add any 7 of the following 9 options: Abzan Beastmaster, Elemental Bond, Triumph of Ferocity, Drumhunter, Outpost Siege, Lifecrafter's Bestiary, Skullclamp, Wheel of Fortune, and Life's Legacy to your deck to be able to refill your hand quickly and often. Check out MagicalHacker - List of All Draw Cards (Steady) and MagicalHacker - List of All Draw Cards (Burst) if you want to see options I didn't mention or options that aren't quite so expensive. I do think that those 9 cards are probably the best draw cards for your deck though, so picking 7 will bring your draw up to a reasonable amount. (I'll get into what 7 cards to drop soon.)
Next, let's tackle boardwipes. You've got Savage Twister and Chandra's Ignition, which I think are fantastic, but you do need more. There are only a few board wipes that can kill flying creatures and nonflying creatures in red and green at a reasonable mana investment, and those are Nevinyrral's Disk, Chain Reaction, Heaven / Earth, Blasphemous Act, Rolling Earthquake, and Starstorm. I think you can pick any 3 of those to add to the deck and you will be set on board wipes. (This brings us up to 12 cards that need to be dropped.) If you want even more options, again, feel free to check out MagicalHacker - List of All Board Wipe Cards to see more cards that could work, but I think adding any three of the above options would be fine.
Now, let's move on to item removal. You have Decimate, Hull Breach, Vandalblast, Beast Within, and Steel Hellkite. These are all fantastic, but I'd like to see Chaos Warp as well to be able to deal with any permanent.
Lastly, let's take a look at what cards you have to be able to deal with creatures at instant speed. Most people assume that dealing with creatures at sorcery speed is just as strong as dealing with creatures at instant speed, but here is why that is not correct: your opponents' creatures are good cards for you when they are attacking other opponents, and they only become problems when they attack you. For that reason, it's important to remember to have lots of instant speed removal to be able to kill creatures during combat when they would deal lots of damage to you or to kill creatures that are about to allow an opponent to go infinite. That said, your only options for that are Chaos Warp and Beast Within, making Chaos Warp that much more important for this deck.
Now that we have gotten the enablers down, let's talk about the bulk of the deck. To really abuse Rosheen Meanderer, we want the rest of the deck to be about using that X restriction. That said, we do want to use cards that will use that restriction to do things of value. If we are going to make big creatures (which we do want to do), we want to make sure that those creatures can attack to deal damage to players by giving them evasion.
Lifeblood Hydra and Primordial Hydra are the only ones that have an evasion ability naturally, so then we are forced to include things to give evasion. Flying is a good start, so I think that Akroma's Memorial and Homura, Human Ascendant are a place to start. You were right to add some ways to give everything trample, but I would add Khenra Charioteer, Gruul War Plow, and Primal Rage. Those five in addition to your Nylea, God of the Hunt and Archetype of Aggression should be enough ways to make your big dudes go through.
I realize now though that I've lost track of how many cards to add, so instead I am going to make a decklist to show what I would suggest this deck should become. No worries, I will link it at the end.
I would actually add all the creatures that cost X but enter with X counters (excluding the ones that cost double X, since those are not as powerful). And after that, just some ways to double +1/+1 counters or use Rosheen's ability will round out the deck.
Personally, I believe that 37 lands including Sol Ring would be enough since you now have enough ramp, so I brought down the number of lands too.
Hope I was able to help you!

It's a good start. Removal in green is very hard to find so I like the small touches.
However, something about commander is you always want to have some sort of interaction with your general. It's certainly not necessary but with Multani, I think it's more fun. If you get some card draw in your deck, it would work really well with him.
Try Howling Mine, Font of Mythos, Collective Unconscious, Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury, Garruk, Primal Hunter, Glimpse of Nature, Heartwood Storyteller, Fecundity, Primordial Sage, Regal Force, Rites of Flourishing, Shamanic Revelation, Soul of the Harvest, Triumph of Ferocity or Zendikar Resurgent.
Another important thing in commander is a solid mana base. Running 38 Forests is not all bad but you want some more interaction with your deck. Oran-Rief, the Vastwood and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx would go really well in your deck. You might also want to consider a Sol Ring and Gilded Lotus because those are commander staples.
Now, what to cut.
Let's start with creatures. One thing you have to think about when casting any kind of spell in a commander game is, "Is this spell worth the mana cost?" and "Does this spell have any kind of interaction in my deck?".
In my opinion, these are the creatures you need to cut. To the right of each, I will put some substitutes:
Shoe Tree ... This is illegal in commander.
A lot of the creatures you have just don't have much synergy in your deck. Cut them and try out the other recommendations I've given you thus far.
Other cards to cut with recommendations:
Call of the Herd ... Not really worth it unless you're running a token deck which you are not.
TL;DR I like your deck. It's a good first time commander deck. Try to cut some of the creatures out that don't have any synergy with it. Card draw would go well with your deck. Mono green always has ramp.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask! Welcome to the format.

Commander / EDH
Attempting a controlish (by eliminating opponents cards)unblock able deck.
Grind Im commenting on yours because I know nothing about the decks above me :P so instead of wasting the time to write "I have no idea" ill comment on something I do :P
with running Avenger of Zendikar I automatically suggest Craterhoof Behemoth and Tooth and Nail. I love mixing Tooth and Nail with an eldrazi like Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger just shuts a person down.
Some Extra Trample Cards if that's your focus, Nylea, God of the Hunt Primal Rage. Also the one thing Green excels at is mana, and you have a TON of search for it so get some big costs in there. Decimator of the Provinces Pathbreaker Ibex Thunderfoot Baloth Rampaging Baloths. Then just to add insult with your mana pool cards like Nature's Will Sword of Feast and Famine
I find the Mono green Trample is 100percent your going to win in a single big turn. not so much picking at them little by little.

MrKrabs you make good points. I didn't notice the Shaman of Forgotten Ways and in my play group, he could make for some hilarious plays! I'm gonna have to pick one and the Shaman just seems like stupid fun whenever you can cast his ability plus the upside of ramping mana. Nintendows You also make a good point, I can get rid of both and I have thought about making a trample sub-theme on the deck at some point; plus I have both Nylea, God of the Hunt and Primal Rage. The sub-theme even helps with making Atarka deck be more flavorful. I'm personally undecided about Dragon Fangs and Vow of Wildness because we have a Bruna, Light of Alabaster in my playgroup and that can get ugly quick. Also, how would you feel about a possible upgrade from Commander's Sphere to Caged Sun?

Gruul War Chant seems kind of out of place. A measly +1/+0 and meanance for freakin double striking huge dragons? Same with Sight of the Scalelords. They seem pretty insignificant on a 6/4. Why not try something like Dragon Fangs! Even something like Rancor or Nylea, God of the Hunt would be cool. Primal Rage exists if you really want trample. Vow of Wildness can act as psuedo removal OR a buff to deal more damage if you need. Loxodon Warhammer would also be a massive life swing and huge damage potential on a double striking dragon.

Assault Formation/Doran, the Siege Tower decks are always fun! I'd suggest any form of trample to get the massive amounts damage through. Rancor or Primal Rage are 2 different and relatively cheap approaches for example. +1

If you want to stay in the place, some other things to consider; to keep the counters building up with Shaman of the Great Hunt, you should consider giving everything trample. Primal Rage and possibly Nylea, God of the Hunt are ones to consider. For draw power, Keen Sense is something to consider with creatures with trample to continue the power. It is arguably more powerful than Inspiring Call being that it is continuous. Also, a pet card Chargin' Badger could be cool too. No one cares about a 1/1 trample, until all of a sudden it becomes much much bigger. Last suggestion (for now) is Bioshift. If someone is able to kill your creature you don't have to lose the counters.
