Cards that I would cut:
Regeneration , Executioner's Hood , Natural End , Bladed Pinions , Revive , Nature's Spiral , Staff of the Wild Magus , Crashing Footfalls awesome if you can cheat the suspend on it, not worth it otherwise, Prodigious Growth , Feasting Troll King and Trail of Crumbs you lack enough of a food theme to run these well enough to include, Moldgraf Monstrosity the random return makes this lackluster, Jaddi Lifestrider , Soul of Zendikar the activation is kind of expensive, Tuinvale Treefolk doesn't do enough to warrant inclusion, Canopy Cover and Web auras not the best here, I'd cut one of Planewide Celebration or Once and Future , and finally, Sandsteppe Mastodon
No Sol Ring ? This a ban in local meta?
If you happen to own them, some cards that you may want to think about: Tendershoot Dryad , Beast Within , Inspiring Call and Garruk, Primal Hunter . Yes, that means more cutting but they should be worth it in this deck.

I like the overall idea. I'd cut cards like Verdant Embrace and Prodigious Growth because their CMC is too high for your mana base and are slow for the speed of your deck. Avacyn's Pilgrim is probably better for our deck that Llanowar Elves .
Shapers' Sanctuary is a good sideboard card. I don't know if I'd run it in the mainboard.
Look for ways to give your creatures indestructible or hexproof. Gods Willing works pretty well, but you are susceptible to board wipes.

In terms of making this more competitive, I'd look at chilling on exactly what you will be getting until horizons drops, because its likely the metagame will shift significantly. The only immediate changes would be sswapping Path of Discovery Prodigious Growth Somberwald Sage Ulvenwald Hydra for more spells/creatures that are useful on the first few turns of the game.
Unbound Flourishing feels like combo fuel- double Finale of Devastation wins instantly, and likely to shape the format in intersting ways, but is also likely to be a multicolour deck to better support that combo.
U/G untap has been a thing for a while- from Bloom Tender to Axebane Guardian Freed from the Real combo has a lot of lists out there offering reliablity and power- but recently has largely been supplanted by Training Grounds / Umbral Mantle due to its ability to subsist on manlands and redundant pieces.
This means that unless you are planning on hunting down a fetch manabase, I'd advise you take the deck in the other direction and tone down the combo aspect- A green deck ramping into 4 and 5 drops and hitting your opponent in the face with them can be great with some tuning. Kalonian Hydra in particular dodges a large amount of removal while presenting a two turn clock, before looking at other creatures. Hardened Scales makes a two mana hydra still scary.
If you really, really like just hitting your opponent with a huge hasty creature with Freed from the Real , add Fertile Ground (Possibly Trace of Abundance ), plenty of filtering and carddraw, and look at the possibility of Early Harvest / Heartbeat of Spring . If you can generate more mana than your opponent has life and cast a hydra (or a Banefire ) you win.

I like this! What about Rancor instead of Prodigious Growth, so you can beef up your creatures faster, and never have to worry about the enchantment getting destroyed. Also what about Heroic Intervention instead of holy day for more protection? Spectral Procession could be a cool card in here too, since some of your other cards beefing up spirits. You could potentially end up putting out a bunch of decently powerful spirits pretty quickly, flying over your enemies head and swarm kill them.

The cmc curve of this deck is always going to be quite high, I would recommend adding in some essential ramp spells and ways to cheat in your creatures. I'm assuming that the cards you will consider will be more on the budget side so here might be some cards you can consider. Selvala's Stampede, good way to be threat and able to cheat permanents from hand or flip into big dragons from the deck. Sunbird's Invocation, since you are reducing the spells of your dragon, the 'cascade' trigger will be large and unlikely you will whiff most of the time. Cream of the Crop a pseudo filtering where it synergizes with your big drops so you can fix your draws. Summoning Trap only would use if you face against a lot of counterspell decks. Nature's Lore, Farseek, Rampant Growth, Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, Hour of Promise, and Skyshroud Claim are great ramp spells that are better in the long run. If not all the signets and talismans for mana rocks to accelerate.
I would recommend cutting all the equipments as you don't need that when your dropping big threats already, Door to Nothingness, Doubling Cube, Lich's Mirror, Descent of the Dragons, Traitorous Blood, Gift of Paradise, Prodigious Growth, Command the Storm, Tail Slash, and Holy Day.
Hope that helps! If your not on budget there are other alternative options but the cards are $10+

It can be done, and it may be a smart decision. However, the only spider with trample is Archweaver with a converted mana cost of 7. The most I would put in of it would be 2x. That and Prodigious Growth will have to do.

I believe you are setting your curve pretty high, Impervious Greatwurm, Arboretum Elemental and Aggressive Mammoth are pretty ambitious, and Hungering Hydra isn't that great either. Good replecements are cards like Carnage Tyrant, Nullhide Ferox, and Vine Mare. Vine mare doesn't seem that good but in the end it hits for five, killing your opponents pretty quick. I like the idea of Elvish Rejuvenator, seeing that playing a Llanowar Elves turn 1 increases your chances of winning immensely, the druid should do a similar thing.
Crash the Ramparts is a questionable card in this deck, its a dead card in hand most game, given that more of your creatures alreadly have trample or are given trample by another creature.
Root Snare also doesn't make any sense, its a very defensive card in a very aggresive deck. The idea of the mono green is to tempo enough pressure to force your opponent to stay on the defensive. If you think it work really well against what your facing maybe sideboard it.
I think Prodigious Growth is definitely interesting, but i feel like if you want the stats on its your could play a better six drop creatures, and if you want some burst to finish your opponent off, just play Bounty of Might
Vivien Reid is another card that requires a defensive strategy to pay off, and yet its in this deck. If it is value you are looking for i suggest Find / Finality Even thought you can only cast the first half its still pretty good in the late game
Also mono green want more lands, i suggest 22-23 lands

Big smashy Naya decks can be a ton of fun! It kinda depends on what direction you want to take the deck, but if you're looking at the classic 'power 5 or greater matters' theme, here are some suggestions:
Remove: Chandra, Fire of Kaladesh Flip: This deck focuses more on casting big creatures, so the likelihood of flipping Chandra is very low. Firemane Angel: Very expensive for her effects. Better creatures and lifegain can be found. Gigantosaurus: Hilarious card, but the 5 green will be super hard to get in a three color deck. Legion Loyalist, Legion Warboss, and Ajani's Welcome: These cards are all geared towards a 'go-wide' playstyle that encourages lots of small creatures. That's not how Naya usually plays, and most of the rest of your deck isn't set up to support them. Light of the Legion, Swiftblade Vindicator, Dawn of Hope, Path of Discovery, Prodigious Growth, Urban Utopia, Bounty of Might, Flower / Flourish, Boros Keyrune, and Selesnya Cluestone: These are all cards that either don't mesh great with the rest of the deck, or are decent, but have cards that can usually do the same thing better.
Big Boyz: Meglonoth: Great power for 6 mana, and can really pump out damage both attacking and blocking each time around the table! Mycoid Shepherd: Pretty decent source of lifegain. Paleoloth: Graveyard recursion. Spearbreaker Behemoth: Gives your important stuff indestructibility! Spellbreaker Behemoth: Can absolutely wreck blue control. Woolly Thoctar: 5/4 for 3. Nuff said. Bull Cerodon: Really solid creature to keep bashing your opponent's with. Godsire: Can be hard to play, but will generate an insane amount of value if it stays in play. Stalking Vengeance: When your stuff dies, so do your opponents! Victory's Herald: massive boost to your field, especially with lifegain.
Mana Ramp: Gruul Signet and Selesnya Signet: Some of the best ramp for three color decks. Drumhunter, Exuberant Firestoker, Sacellum Godspeaker, and Sunseed Nurturer: Can be okay as ramp, while also synergizing with your theme. Mul Daya Channelers: can be either a 5/5, or help you ramp into one. Somberwald Sage, Beastcaller Savant, Birds of Paradise, Channeler Initiate, Chromatic Lantern, Commander's Sphere, Draconic Disciple, Llanowar Elves, Atzocan Seer, and Drover of the Mighty: All permanents with useful ramp abilities, some of which even have a few other potential synergies. Traverse the Ulvenwald, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Yavimaya Elder, Harrow, Journey of Discovery, Gift of Estates, Cultivate, Caravan Vigil, and Collective Voyage: Cards with varying effects that let you search up lands from your library.
Utility: Asceticism: Lots of protection for your board. Anger and Fires of Yavimaya: gives all of your creatures haste. Signal the Clans: Great tutor card for creature based decks. Loxodon Warhammer and Behemoth Sledge: Trample and lifegain on a stick. Domri Rade: Card draw, repeatable fighting, and a crazy ult. Deafening Clarion, Austere Command, Earthquake, Mizzium Mortars, Comet Storm, and Savage Twister: All have the potential to be near one-sided boardwipes.
Lands: Ancient Ziggurat: With a focus on creatures, this card is usually really useful. Command Tower: Should be in every commander deck. Naya Panorama and Jungle Shrine Kessig Wolf Run: Extra damage and trample. Contested Cliffs: Repeatable fighting for your beasts.
There are probably more suggestions I could make, and certainly not all of these cards need to go in. Just some different ideas for you to consider!
