VexenX the primer hasn't worked properly in some time, only your 'active decks', and 'needs updates'. TO has been lackluster lately and more and more players are using Moxfield.
I've been running extensive tests with this deck for a while now, it is by far my favorite casual commander. Here are some of my notes:
I find an opening hand Crop Rotation frustrating, yet a love seeing it later. I would rather have a Elvish Reclaimer early. The inner debate went on as to which one I should run, ultimately deciding that I'm going to try to run both.
Perilous Forays: I could live with or without it, it's good but not great a lot. A potential cut.
Terror of the Peaks, Warstorm Surge, and Where Ancients Tread all compete for the same job. Getting two or three in the same hand is more diminishing than it is beneficial. Warstorm may be on my chopping block.
Unless I can get more more find land cards w/o any clauses, I may rethink Reliquary Tower, and Command Beacon. I like bringing Hour of Promise back into my deck. I also believe Sheltered Thicket deserves a slot. If I'm fetching tapped forests, might as well get a dual.. or cycle it for and upcoming loam or rec.
I will include a link to my list so you can see what I run, and what I'm thinking with my 'considering cards.' Is there a Discord for Omrage, does anyone know? Rage on brothers and sisters.

Great questions! It took me quite some time to understand all the nuances of it as well. Let's answer your questions:
1. Does it work like that? You are almost correct :). To make it work, you would need to be at 7 lands actually. Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle reads "if you control at least 5 other mountains", so you need 5 mountains for it to work on the sixth mountain you play. If you have multiple mountains enter the battlefield with Scapeshift (and with them counted you have 6 or more) then it works as you describe: they all enter at the same time, so they all see each other as they enter and they all trigger. So in combination with Scapeshift, you need to have at least 7 lands. You can sac all 7, get Valakut and 6 lands with the mountain type, and boom: you deal 6x3=18 damage. If you already had Valakut in play you will now want to be at 8 lands: sac all but Valakut, get Vesuva + six mountains. Now you deal 12x3=36 damage as Vesuva will enter as a copy of Valakut. That copy ability happens without the stack, before the valakut triggers are put on the stack (unfortunately Vesuva cannot come into play as a copy of another land you got with Scapeshift).
2. What would I cut? I think Mina and Denn is not required for your build. I run Mina and Denn myself as the commander and I love the card, but I suspect you will not be returning lands to your hand that often in this list (you are not running the broken ones that combo with M&D, which are Gaea's Cradle, Glacial Chasm and Mosswort Bridge). That could be a way to make room for Dryad. For lands I would surely cut Reliquary Tower as it is a nice-to-have card, not a necessary one (I think I only run it in Multani, Maro-Sorcerer where it actually helps me win. For most other decks I think it is overrated. Discarding back to 7 doesn't feel nice, but it will probably never make you lose). You can also experiment with cutting a few basics, but I'm not familiar with the desired basic lands statistics in Omnath builds.
Hope this answers your questions :).

Since you have lots of +1/+1 counters in this deck, I wonder if a couple proliferate cards would be worth it. I know cuts are getting tight, so the only ones I can find that could potentially make it are Sword of Truth and Justice and Karn's Bastion. The sword protects against cards like Path to Exile and Swords to Plowshares, but probably won't make the cut. Bastion on the other hand could be swapped out for a Swamp or Reliquary Tower and also has a lot of synergy with Seedborn Muse and just in general because this deck produces a lot of mana to activate its ability.

I'll start by saying I am also new to building EDH - but I want a Marchesa deck. It looks to me like your win condition is damage and slowing down some ones board by exiling away cards, removing creatures and getting past their creatures with unblock-able effects. Then there are cards that Mil, which I think would be the first ones up for removal in place of something else that helps with your win condition. I would also remove Crosis's Catacombs, I don't think losing out on mana is worth what it gives you. You also have some card draw but I don't think its insane enough to require Reliquary Tower. I think there is more to work with here though.

XinZhao, Guerte: I think I will slot in Return of the Wildspeaker, but I got a foil Compost, so I might try that out at some point as well. I face mainly black and green in my meta, so it kinda fits well.
I agree with _Arra_, being able to creature tutor out a win with Craterhoof Behemoth is way different then Akroma's Memorial. Memorial definitely lays the hurt on when it comes out, but it very rarely wins games at the same level as Craderhoof.
I was not a fan of Sylvan Awakening when I played it previously. Maybe it is worth a relook.. but I would rather play something else to be honest. I wish our colors had creature sac outlet like Yahenni, Undying Partisan or Viscera Seer. What do you think about Repercussion? It plays into the burn strategy and combat as well.
Rasaru: Thanks! I think the deck is pretty amazing too! A good start for a budget built is fixing up the lands. There are many cheaper budget fetches out there, they just make the lands come in tapped most of the time. If you cut the money cards like Gaea's Cradle, Taiga, Wheel of Fortune, and Mana Crypt you will be really close. Most of my decks value is the fact that it is foiled out.
I love Reliquary Tower. I am almost always happy to have it, or hope to draw it. This deck draws a ton of cards, many of which we want to keep in our hands.
Expect an update this week!

Well now that I'm thinking about it Starfield of Nyx is one of my favorite enchantment deck cards, not really important that zur cant grab it cause when you cast it it turns all your enchantments to recursion pieces, its makes Stasis way nastier, Rising Waters is also good for this since it allows you that one blue, while you swing with zur or go for an alternate wincon like Azor's Elocutors, many an option here in these colors, especially since your running Necropotence you can add a Venser's Journal or a Reliquary Tower and draw up half your deck and filter for a winning hand
