You could add Natural Affinity to respond to any creature wipe spells, or even to combo with your own Blasphemous Act. You're also going to need Vandalblast to take out the artifacts of those players who are using artifact mana instead of land ramp.
To get more out of the land destruction, you could add effects to increase the number of lands people play and disrupt their ability to use those lands, like Storm Cauldron, Ghirapur Orrery, Rites of Spring, and Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger.
Overlaid Terrain might be worth it if you are planning to destroy all your lands anyway.
You could cut Multani since it's hard to exploit his land bounce much, so he's just a fat beater most of the time.

There are some inclusions in the deck that I don't completely understand and seem like bad cards to be playing, especially in a format as crazy as commander. Why are you playing Scapeshift but not the Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle + Prismatic Omen combo? I understand it's a good way to get a bunch of landfall triggers, but you would be much better off with Life from the Loam in this slot. LftL is an auto-include in any lands-themed deck and you should be playing it. Army Ants seems way too cute and a very bad card for the political climate of a commander game. You can only take out one land every turn cycle, and the person you hurt will be salty with you. Since you seem to be going with an MLD theme, I would run Jokulhaups instead. Dragonmaster Outcast is way to slow and fragile. Cut it for Splendid Reclamation. Elvish Rejuvenator is just a bad Wood Elves. Ember Swallower is a bad card. cut it for better MLD. Same goes with Invader Parasite - it's a cute card, but doesn't make nearly enough of an impact for commander. Scute Mob - see dragonmaster outcast. I reccomend cutting it for Deathrite Shaman. Exsanguinate seems bad without Cabal Coffers+Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth or Vault Skirge+The Gitrog Monster. I would cut two basics for the aforementioned lands and Invader Parasite for Vault Skirge. Rites of Spring - I understand that this card is in here to work with your commander, but it's a bad card. Cut for Squandered Resources which also works well with Exsanguinate. Tsunami and Choke - is there a mono-blue player in your playgroup? If not these are just bad cards as a lot of the lands people will be playing, even in a two-color deck, are not islands. Path of Discovery seems like a bad card to me - I haven't actually played with it and I understand it works well with angry omnath, landfall dragon and avenger but if you don't have those cards it feels awful. Why is Conjurer's Closet in your deck. Unless you have one of your ~6 ETB creatures it sucks. Cut for Kodama's Reach. I would play Constant Mists over Eternity Vessel. Hope this helps!

I think Storm the Vault is very much a ramp card--both front and back.

So firstly I really like what you've got going here as far as play style (being a lands matter deck that just gets out of hand with your commander rather than being strictly based on them). That's cool. Plus the name is funny and I'd love to here where you got it from.
Secondly I would point you in the direction of a certain EDHrec article that discusses how each of the green/x color pairings work when compared to each other. They've done a pretty good job of fleshing each option out and I think you'll find a lot more there than by just me saying whether one thing works well or not.
Additionally, Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar, Scouting Trek, and Rites of Spring seem like some strong cards for this build, but I say all this without play testing so take it with a grain of salt. I also wouldn't know where to cut for the same reasons.

I have the following parts and pieces to an almost copy and paste version of JLK's Shadowborn Apostle deck.
20x Shadowborn Apostle lp
8x Shadowborn Apostle mp
1x Vampiric Tutor lp
1x Athreos, God of Passage lp
1x Grave Titan lp, Japanese
1x Dark Ritual foil Near Mint Masterpiece Series: Amonkhet Invocations
I am mainly trying to get rid of all 28 shadow born apostles hahaha.
I recently made an Omnath, Locus of Rage deck that seems pretty awesome, I'd love to be able to trade/sell at TCG Low for most of the more expensive parts and pieces I need:
Secondary List: 1x Azusa, Lost but Seeking 1x Eternal Witness 1x Green Sun's Zenith 1x Knollspine Dragon 1x Lotus Cobra 1x Shattering Spree 1x Stomping Ground 1x Tooth and Nail 1x Vesuva 1x Vexing Shusher 1x Worldly Tutor
If you'd rather purchase some items, I accept PayPal. If you are looking for filler, here are some 0$-5$ cards I require: 1x Collective Voyage 1x Darksteel Garrison 1x Explosive Vegetation 1x Gruul Signet 1x Harrow 1x Hunting Wilds 1x Perilous Forays 1x Rampaging Baloths 1x Reap and Sow 1x Regrowth 1x Rites of Spring 1x Seer's Sundial 1x Summer Bloom 1x Courser of Kruphix 1x Crop Rotation 1x New Frontiers 1x Protean Hulk 1x Ramunap Excavator
I know this is very comprehensive - thanks for hanging in there!

+ allows you to dig through your deck. Both work fine by themselves as well.
Rites of Spring allows you to discard your hand for a hand full of basics. Maybe not as useful with this particular deck but you can just do a partial.

I have A Bobo too but mostly based around him.
Things you could take out while keeping the theme would be: Mulch, Into the Wilds, Countryside Crusher, Elvish Harbinger, Wirewood Herald, Constant Mists, Venser's Journal, Urabrask the Hidden, and you don't need 50 land. I'd say 46.
