If Scorched Ruins would come into play, sacrifice two untapped lands instead. If you do, put Scorched Ruins into play. If you don't, put it into its owner's graveyard.

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.
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.

Ideally for my Tatyova deck I would have all the fetch lands, Crucible of Worlds (Which I just got), a Strip Mine as an alternative yet douchey win condition if the game goes on too long, Worldly Tutor, Green Sun's Zenith, Magus of the Future, Dryad Arbor, Vedalken Orrery, Leyline of Anticipation, Thrasios, Triton Hero, Thousand-Year Elixir, Thawing Glaciers, Sylvan Library, Sensei's Divining Top, Seedborn Muse, Murkfiend Liege, Scorched Ruins, Roil Elemental, Rhystic Study, Petrified Field, Patron of the Moon, Pathbreaker Ibex, Oboro, Palace in the Clouds, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Lotus Vale, Kodama's Reach, Into the Wilds, Hall of the Bandit Lord, Breeding Pool, Flooded Grove, Sylvan Scrying, Expedition Map, Eternal Witness, Dreamscape Artist, Concordant Crossroads, Command Beacon, Chromatic Lantern (IF you have all the fetches), Cephalid Coliseum, Boundless Realms, Blackblade Reforged,Alchemist's Refuge. Not sure if I will put all these in but most for sure and there are some good ideas.

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

Apologies for the delay, I had to write this twice.One time mana sources make a lot of sense since you do need 11 mana to play your commander and equip all in the same turn.Basalt Monolith, Grim Monolith, Lion's Eye Diamond, Mana Vault, Pyretic Ritual, Desperate Ritual, Seething Song, Lotus Bloom, Lotus Petal, Treasonous Ogre, Vessel of Volatility, Simian Spirit Guide
EquipmentHammer of Nazahn, Helm of the Host, Lightning Greaves all good but how do you feel about Sword of Feast and Famine + Aggravated Assault backup strategy? Sword of the Animist is a good equipment for this strategy as well but depending on the table may not be fast enough.
Love the counter package, no Dualcaster Mage?Fork, Burnout, Pyroblast, Red Elemental Blast, Reverberate, Ricochet Trap, Glorious End, and of course Possibility Storm. Not a big fan of Veilstone Amulet in cedh but the makeup of your local meta will make or break this card. Active Volcano is probably too much.
Maybe too many colorless lands? I think you could cut one land overall but I understand you want to hit each land drop. Ancient Tomb, Buried Ruin, Cavern of Souls, City of Traitors, Command Beacon, Crystal Vein, Dwarven Ruins, Gemstone Caverns, 25xMountain, Sandstone Needle, Scorched Ruins, Sequestered Stash
Kuldotha Forgemaster is a good way to tutor the equipment into play.
Sphere of Resistance is a fantastic protection card but can make it easier for others to combo if you leave it out.

Thanks for the suggestions shub! I like Scorched Ruins a lot, so I also added Lotus Vale. Caustic Caterpillar is indeed probably a better fit than Reclamation Sage the problem remains that I don't know how to fit it in the deck

Since Crucible of Worlds and Glacial Chasm were already recommended, I may as well toss a recommendation for Lotus Vale and Scorched Ruins. They're moderately expensive, but I sure don't regret getting them for my Gitrog deck since they let you draw two with Gitrog's effects and work for some good ramp.
