Equipment is the theme here so getting them and protecting your equipment is good, but there is a bunch so you could make an easy cut there: Open the Vaults -I personally don't like because opponents get their shit too, Darksteel Forge -such a big mana sink and it wont keep your creatures alive, Ghostly Flicker -I'm trying to think of where this would be useful besides ETB effects, it wont save them from artifact destruction spells, Leonin Abunas -gives your artifacts hexproof but is a 4 mana 2/5, super meh imo.
There is also a lot of 'equipment recursion' if you wanna call it that. Think about how much resources you want to dedicate to bringing destroyed equipment back from the graveyard versus counting on drawing or tutoring one of your 17 equipment in the deck. I personally LOVE how many artifact/equipment tutors you have, I personally would gladly run just those INSTEAD of the recursion spells. Ritual of Restoration
Here are other cuts I'd consider: Bred for the Hunt Primeval Bounty Foundry Inspector Auriok Windwalker Dispatch -I would swap with Swords to Plowshares as it is more reliable, or Condemn. Harrow, Kiora, Master of the Depths.
Here are some possible replacements: Sun Titan -VERY GOOD FOR YOUR DECK, Danitha Capashen, Paragon, Bloodforged Battle-Axe, Moonsilver Spear, Brimaz, King of Oreskos, Armory Automaton, Balan, Wandering Knight, Blackblade Reforged, Valduk, Keeper of the Flame, Godo, Bandit Warlord, Ajani, Caller of the Pride -bringing him back, Edric, Spymaster of Trest, Austere Command, Elspeth, Knight-Errant.

Couldn't disagree more with most of these suggestions, bouncelands are fantastic in this and most landfall decks. You want to be returning lands to your hand as often as possible and since Amulet of Vigor is in this deck, a lot of the time your bouncelands don't even come in tapped meaning you get to utilize the land you are bouncing and the bounceland itself for mana. Basics are needed for Ash Barrens, Thawing Glaciers, Harrow, Rampant Growth, Kodama's Reach, Cultivate, Nissa, Vastwood Seer Flip, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Khalni Heart Expedition.
Primeval Bounty IS slow and durdly, I'll give you that, but then again, this deck isn't looking to win a game on display at Laboratory Maniacs. It's designed to have fun based around landfall triggers, and it does a good job at that. You certainly could make an argument for adding shocks/fetches to a landfall deck, but if you did that to this one you'd have to basically do an overhaul of the deck to change out a lot of the cards that I mentioned as this deck needs a lot of basics.

The deck is really good! But the mana base NEEDS to be fixed. bouncelands are awful in EVERY deck by far, you shoul at least take some shocklands to make fetches more decent, since you're playing a lot of specific card mana. You should also buy the other staple lands such as other fetches (almost everyone, that's why you need shocklands and not too many base lands!) to fix faster mana, Ancient Tomb (if you're playing 2v2 commander). Chrome Mox is great too (obviously 2v2 commander since it's banned in MTGO format). If you want to play on lands you can consider adding the Dark Depths and Thespian's Stage combo!
Primeval Bounty it's one of the slowest things i've ever read, you should swap it for faster enchantments such as Sylvan Library. Another funny enchantment would be Manabond. Feel free to pass here and take a look at my decklist, you might find something useful for land recursion too!

Looking at the new partner legendaries from battlebond, I thought "this is like Wild Pair, I should throw them all in a deck" Now, I realize that just doing that is going to be terrible and not synergistic without finding some subthemes and how to benefit from always getting another creature in my hand when I cast my creatures.
Some things that I have also considered with this are cards like Soul of the Harvest, Primordial Sage, and Zendikar Resurgent so I draw from my casting as well as cards that say casting creatures matter such as the amonkhet monuments or Primeval Bounty.
TL;DR I would like help finding a useful theme to go off of with the partner's, and subthemes to fill out the deck.

Really like the deck idea. From testing, you have too many Forests, and you probably need more card draw to storm off. Cut some of the Forests for 1-mana Elves, since those can accelerate the deck while also putting a +1/+1 counter on Marwyn. They would also give you the option of using Skullclamp for card draw. Adding a Traverse the Outlands should also thin the deck a lot. Grothama, All-Devouring lets you draw lots of cards by attacking with Marwyn, as long as you have something to untap her. Greater Good also works well if you can float mana first. Temur Sabertooth is great as well especially with Paradox Engine.
Swiftfoot Boots is a great way to protect Marwyn and give her haste so you can recast her, though you do need enablers like Greater Good or Temur Sabertooth. Concordant Crossroads is another great haste enabler if you only play it when you want to storm off. Akroma's Memorial is worth a shot.
You could try Primeval Bounty as a way to pump Marwyn even more. Also, creatures that pump on ETB, like Wolfir Silverheart, Verdurous Gearhulk, Yeva's Forcemage, and Briarhorn. With enough creatures, Soul of the Harvest, Primordial Sage, and Regal Force can also provide card draw.

Hey so overall the first impressions haven't been too good, the deck sometimes works and gets off to an explosive start but its draws are always a guess to say the least, mulling into oblivion is a problem I faced repeatedly. There is much too much variation at this juncture in the way the deck feels and plays, in other words we need to streamline this a bit. And to do that one needs decide which route the deck is going to be taken, and personally i feel a mono-green stompy or devotion list would best suit what is already here.
So firstly lets get over what should be removed:
Pretty much everything, I'll save a bit of time by just saying that a lot of the one-of's and two-of's have better alternatives, the only creatures i would keep are Llanowar Elves, Kalonian Tusker, and Obstinate Baloth (and even then Obstinate is better in a sideboard); the most important cut is Krosan Warchief it just isn't modern legal unfortunately. In addition to these creature cuts I would cut all the pump spells as well as Ring of Kalonia, and i know you have built this deck around it but also Primeval Bounty, I never once resolved this card in testing, I never even wanted to.
With all these cuts in mind we have a pretty blank slate to work with: lets start with the mana a deck like this wants 24 lands in my opinion, 4 of those (if financially viable) should be Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx to generate copious amounts of mana, there is also an argument for something like Treetop Village. This leave us 46 slots in the mainboard, the vast majority of which will be creatures:
So here the decision really is yours 2 of these sets should be in the deck, you want 8 accelerators in my opinion, these are the most budget friendly options; note however that if you choose to play Arbor Elf then you also want Utopia Sprawl.
One or the other both may be too much.
In my opinion you want both of these, they provide great curving threats whilst also fueling the devotion gameplan. These are your best threats.
- 1-3x of Thrun, the Last Troll
A resilient threat that works well with the devotion plan.
The big payoff, a huge threat that hits the board and makes an immediate impact.
The rest of the creature slots can be devoted to silver bullets so to speak, things like Scavenging Ooze or Reclamation Sage to have some mainboard hate, Courser of Kruphix for more acceleration, Tireless Tracker as just a great card.
As for non-creature spells, a few come to mind as worth it (left entirely to your discretion):
Provides much needed flexibility in combat as you can focus on curving out whilst still being able to pump.
- 1- 3x Heroic Intervention
Protection as you will go wide, this is usually a sidebaord card but can see play in the main as a one-of depending on meta.
- 1-3x Dismember
Our removal of choice, flexible and efficient, great for getting those last points of damage in.
A must if you play Arbor Elf, with that combination of cards it is possible to make 4 mana on turn two.
- 1-4x Garruk Wildspeaker
I personally believe he is good enough to see play, he is flexible enough that i can see him being quite effective.
This would require lowering the curve and removing anything above 3 mana but company is an incredible tempo play in a deck like this, providing some much needed acceleration, however you sacrifice the devotion plan in favor of it, and likely play Eternal Witness to recur company.
In the end the deck is yours so these are all just suggestions, i hope they help, I really see this more as a stompy list in need of a focus, hopefully the above provides some inspiration. If i have completely missed the mark however in what you are trying to do then let me know and I'll adjust. I'd also be more than happy to help with a sideboard.
