WrathofCod I switched to Omnath, Locus of Rage because he is a very powerful general. He does have a significantly higher mana cost than Mina and Denn, but what he does is worth the high mana cost. Plus I use a ton of ramp in the deck, allowing me to get him out with ease.
Glacial Chasm is a great card to abuse with M&D because you can play it, then bounce it back with their ability an play it when the board isn't in your favor. If you are worried about the lands being sacc'd, you can play cards like Splendid Reclamation or Groundskeeper; or if you have it, Crucible of Worlds.
I like any card that gives you a body whenever you play a land (for chump blocking and attacking), which is why I suggested Sporemound. It does, however, have amazing synergy with Perilous Forays, as you can sac the tokens produced by Rampaging Baloths, Angry Omnath and the mound for a large number of landfall triggers (it's super awesome when you have another token generator out). If you want to be able to fetch out every basic land in your deck, you can combine Perilous Forays with Amulet of Vigor and Lotus Cobra; and to a lesser extent, Stone-Seeder Hierophant. Fertilid does a similar thing with Retreat to Kazandu as the above combo, but requires more mana.
Descent of the Dragons is a fantastic board wipe imo! I was considering adding into Angry Omnath because you can attack with your elementals and then main phase 2 blowing them up with Descent and bolt people to death. In this deck, I think it'll be pretty good if you have a bunch of 1/1 creatures out since you can attack, and then blow them up for 4/4 fliers. There are some other board wipes that would be good in this deck, such as Blasphemous Act, so depending on how you feel, I think the latter should be considered first but the former is a great option too.
I think the eldrazi do pretty well in here, as you can play land/ramp into tokens and then play those, I think it'd require a bit of testing, so it depends on the outcome of games. Oblivion Sower has synergy, allowing you to play lands that you exiled with him for more landfall triggers.
For cuts, I'd recommend cutting mana dorks since you mainly want to ramp via lands due to the value you get from them. This also allows the deck to be less reliant on your commander too. Burning-Tree Emissary seems rather mediocre for EDH (she's amazing in Modern and Pauper though haha), along with Plummet and Naturalize. Paragon of Eternal Wilds also seems a tad mediocre from its boost and effect (you have Skarrg Guildmage to give all your creatures trample).
This deck is coming together very well, no problem and thanks for the upvote on the primer!

Alright we are going to go through a few changes here that I think will help.
Remove Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker, his cost is far too high.
Remove Hive Stirrings. It is not a very EDH viable card.
I would recommend Coat of Arms. Be warned that it helps other players as well. Against a fellow tribal deck this may not be a great idea.
Worldly Tutor is a godsend in a creature deck such as this.
That should be a good start to getting your deck more focused. You can't be afraid to remove sliver cards and replace them with enchantments that do the same thing as some slivers are severely overcosted.

what do you think about Skarrg Guildmage?
Providing all creatures trample plus your lands can hit your enemys lifepoints.
Aswell turns your lands into elementals, making them able to trigger Omnaths second ability. Nice deck btw

PlutoniumWedding: Now that I think I have a pretty solid base of creating huge threats, do you think I have enough trample providers/finishers in relation ?

Now to my egoboosted defence on the few cards I really dont want to ditch:
Mogg Hollows: Its +1 is good with all the x cost, It provides the one necessary color if youre one short and all the nonland mana sources outweight it's minor negative. And I'm mainly using it's coloured mana when I absolutely have to. (Plus I got a tempest print of it which is really mtg-penis largening :D)
Solidarity of Heroes Is something I think you are underestimating in a counter specific deck like this, as it will ALWASY find targets and I most likely have abough mana floating around to cast it on atleast 3 targets. It's a card, that when not countered, most likely drops one player out of the game with just one swing (Requiering a trample provider which is semi easy to wait for when you most likely are a player that instills enough fear to make risky plays or if to focus me in the stages. Or on the worst case and you pull crap, you'll get rushed down before astablishing anything, in which case no card in the game saves you :))
Skarrg Guildmage Turning your lands in to an unstoppaple 4/4 army through Xenagos, the Reveler +1, helping pay for the transformation without using minimum lands that want to crossdress as fearful soldiers, to get the required amount in one killing blow possible. And with the trample sources, they go through one way of another.
PS. In half an hou I already saw how much this will improve with just replasing similar cards with ulmimately better alternatives, but I'll stast serious theory crafting as suun as I get home later tonight! Again thank you for your time!

I've playtested your deck against a couple of mine, which I think are generally fairly close on the casual-hardcode scale. Here are my random thoughts and suggestions.
- Sapseep Forest - Entering tapped isn't worth the upside.
- Mogg Hollows - Only getting coloured mana every other turn seems bad.
- 1x Forest, 1x Mountain to make place for...
- Karplusan Forest and Mossfire Valley - Two untapped mana-fixing lands.
- Mosswort Bridge and Spinerock Knoll - Both of these have requirements that should be easy to meet in your deck. They're really bad with X spells, but you have a lot of other useful targets.
- Clip Wings for Silklash Spider, a lot slower and more expensive, but reusable.
- Gruul Keyrune for Gruul Signet A 3/2 trample is really small in EDH, so I'd go for the lower mana cost if I were you.
- Lightning Bolt for Ulvenwald Tracker Basically Doom Blade on a stick with the huge guys you will be keeping around. Also fun with Thornbite Staff, which is also incredible ramp with Rosheen if you can arrange some other way to have creatures die. Volcanic Fallout would be an example.
More general suggestions:
- Might of Old Krosa One-off buffs aren't that great when you have three opponents you need to get down from 40 life. It's certainly not reliable as removal, either.
- Increasing Savagery Your many X-creatures turn mana into power and toughness. No need to have a separate card that does the same.
- Solidarity of Heroes Very powerful at the right time, but it's a one-off effect that requires some setup.
- Feral Incarnation - Three 3/3 beasts isn't worth the mana, and you don't have enough token generation to make it "free".
- Skarrg Guildmage - There are better trample-givers, like Nylea, God of the Hunt.
- Genesis In this type of deck with low-count high-value creatures I'd try to sneak this in, but it depends on how graveyard-hatey your meta is.
- Asceticism Again, high-value creatures that respond poorly to single-target removal. Keep your hydras safe!
- Death's Presence Even if your hydras die you get to keep most of their value.
- In the Web of War, Fires of Yavimaya or Xenagos, God of Revels - Haste on large creatures is huge, you can swing and kill someone without them getting the time to set up defence.
- Gyre Sage - Makes each hydra larger than the previous one, which makes him larger, which makes the next hydra larger... :o
- Elemental Bond - Card draw when you play creatures keeps the creatures coming.
- Soul of the Harvest - As above.
- Aggravated Assault - The plan is to make lots of mana and huge creatures. Letting them work double shifts the next turn might secure a kill (or two).
Slightly out of budget suggestions:
- Selvala, Heart of the Wilds - She seems perfect for the deck. Huge creatures, huge mana, extra cards.
- Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx - In decks with two colours or less, this makes a lot of mana.
To make room for this I'd personally cut all the treefolk. They're better in mono-green.
It depends on your meta, but I'd also cut all planeswalkers except maybe Xenagos. They just tend to die so quickly in EDH. Xenagos generally at least pays for himself, though.
You could also consider multi-mana dorks, like Bloom Tender, Fyndhorn Elder, Greenweaver Druid, Nantuko Elder, Priest of Titania, Shaman of Forgotten Ways, Somberwald Sage, Whisperer of the Wilds, Wirewood Channeler, Karametra's Acolyte and dubiously Frontier Siege.
I hope you can take at least something from this.
