Saljen on Titania, Protector Of Argoth

You'll want to run all 4 relevant fetch lands, Wooded Foothills, Windswept Heath, Verdant Catacombs, and Misty Rainforest. Every time you trigger a fetch land, you'll get a 5/3. Same goes for Evolving Wilds, Terramorphic Expanse, Myriad Landscape, and Blighted Woodland.

Here are some more lands that will trigger your commanders effect: Dust Bowl lets you have repeated land removal while synergizing with your commander. Lotus Vale and Scorched Ruins ramp up while sac'ing lands. Thespian's Stage + Dark Depths is a fun land combo, when both are in play and Stage is made a copy of DD both get sac'd and you end out with a 20/20 indestructible flier and two 5/3 tokens. Petrified Field lets you grab lands from your graveyard while triggering your commander.

I play a red/green deck that uses Titania and a lot of land effects, so this is coming from experience having played with Titania.

I'd suggest Ring of Three Wishes or Skyship Weatherlight over planar portal. The downsides and risk with these outweigh the mana saving in my experience.

In regards to Extraplanar Lens, it's amazing. I'd replace like 20-30 of these situational lands with Wastes, put it, Endless Atlas, Solemn Simulacrum, Wayfarer's Bauble, and Isolated Watchtower in. It will help your curve and consistency sooo much.

Every time you play a land, I would ask just yourself how often you actually use its perk. If you can't see yourself ever searching for it with Expedition Map, then it's a good sign that it doesn't have enough utility to be in the deck.

How often are 3 urza lands in at the same time? How often do you spend 7 to activate Urza's Factory instead of playing eldrazi spells? How often do you get a spirit from Gods' Eye, Gate to the Reikai and is a 1/1 really that good? How often do you have an empty hand for Sea Gate Wreckage? How often do you morph Zoetic Cavern? How often does Scorched Ruins get targeted for land destruction?

I would consider Ancient Tomb and Inventors' Fair too, those are some nonbasic lands that are worth searching for with map.

I think Rites of Flourishing is in the wrong place under Mana Doublers. Ghirapur Orrery could also be added to Group Hug. Sylvan Advocate should also be under Lords. You could add Nature's Will and Earthcraft to untappers. Life and Limb is another Animator. Turntimber Sower goes under Token Generators. Storm Cauldron is amazing under Play Extra Lands and Stax. Not sure if you'd want to include Scorched Ruins and Lotus Vale as some sort of sac outlet and ramp. Khalni Gem could go under bounce along with Mina and Denn, and also Golgari Rot Farm, Gruul Turf, Rakdos Carnarium, and Darigaaz's Caldera.

You can also look at my Windgrace deck for any other cards I missed.

Dust Bowl,Scorched Ruins and Command Beacon all work really well with Titania.

I'm working on a Borborygmos Enraged EDH list and got quite a bit of inspiration from this deck. I've found a few cards that you might get some value out of in this deck in my deck building process.

Insurrection is an excellent win-con in multi-player EDH games. Successfully casting this card can often just end the game right there.

Praetor's Counsel gives you an infinite hand size for the rest of the game and puts your whole graveyard in your hand. That's incredibly valuable when you have 20+ cards in your graveyard.

Decimate is a really solid piece of removal.

The rest of my recommendations are lands, since part of the theme of my deck is "lands matters".

Glacial Chasm can let you sit behind a wall for a few turns while you build up your army.

Lotus Vale and Scorched Ruins are great ways to both ramp and trigger Titania, Protector of Argoth while Dust Bowl also helps here quite a lot.

Madblind Mountain is a Mountain and provides a ton of value when paired with Sensei's Divining Top. Look at the top 3 of your library, don't like em? Shuffle them away and do it again.

Terrain Generator can help you drop some of those basics onto the battle field a bit quicker.

Best part of all of these is they are fetch-able by much of your land search cards, giving you a "toolbox" to pull some great abilities from.

Have you considered Scorched Ruins? There might be enough ways to get red mana for it to worth it. Just a thought.

You average converted mana cost is around 4.8 that exstreamly high for a mono white deck. 47 lands is good enough. 33 creatures is in the high side I'd settle with 28. You're not really running an enchantment heavy deck so Sigil of the Empty Throne is not good here. You need lots of ramp if you want to do what you are saying you want to do so you'll need mana doublers like Caged Sun and Extraplanar Lens and Gauntlet of Power you'll need to focus of the ramp package that ramps for more then 1. You'll need the ones like Coalition Relic, Worn Powerstone, Ur-Golem's Eye, Sisay's Ring, Mana Vault and Mana Crypt. Also run the land ramp package Ancient Tomb, Scorched Ruins, Myriad Landscape, and Terrain Generator
