I have a few suggestions, I'll try to categorize like you.

Animar Counters - Consider Hardened Scales.

Clone - Phyrexian Metamorph, Stunt Double, and Phantasmal Image are all great here.

Haste - Ogre Battledriver

Interaction - Ainok Survivalist and Stratus Dancer

Ramp - Azusa, Lost but Seeking, Oracle of Mul Daya, Exploration, Selvala, Heart of the Wilds, Somberwald Sage, Shaman of Forgotten Ways, and Sylvan Caryatid

Protection - Heroic Intervention

I run a Gitrog deck and I feel like, without more land and land based synergy, he might be an expensive and risky card draw engine.

I highly recommend Black Market. I run it in a 3 colour (Ghave), and it's pure power when you've got a lot of sacrificing going on.

On top of Grave Pact and Dictate of Erebos, which you have, my Maestro Fresh Kresh deck runs Desecration Demon to leverage my sacrifices against my opponents. These engines with a Grave Betrayal in this deck could give you a bunch more goats for the alter, limited to how fast your opponents are putting them out :).

Somberwald Sage and Deathcap Cultivator might be good mana elves for this?

There's some serious power cards in here, it seems like a pretty deadly deck!

Bloom Tender instead of Somberwald Sage. Wear / Tear is a better Demystify. Use Carnage Tyrant since evades targeting. Sylvan Library to use with top. Swords to Plowshares and Path to Exile and Wing Shards for best targeted removal. Mass removal use Austere Command - very flexible to suit your needs. Needs more tutors like Tooth and Nail and Enlightened Tutor. Overall I like your version. Upvote from me. Take a look at my decks. Here are those that I currently use with much success - Sing the Fire and Speak the Sun, Enchant to Clear All Tumors and Dragonlord, the Sky Marathon

Big smashy Naya decks can be a ton of fun! It kinda depends on what direction you want to take the deck, but if you're looking at the classic 'power 5 or greater matters' theme, here are some suggestions:

Remove: Chandra, Fire of Kaladesh  Flip: This deck focuses more on casting big creatures, so the likelihood of flipping Chandra is very low. Firemane Angel: Very expensive for her effects. Better creatures and lifegain can be found. Gigantosaurus: Hilarious card, but the 5 green will be super hard to get in a three color deck. Legion Loyalist, Legion Warboss, and Ajani's Welcome: These cards are all geared towards a 'go-wide' playstyle that encourages lots of small creatures. That's not how Naya usually plays, and most of the rest of your deck isn't set up to support them. Light of the Legion, Swiftblade Vindicator, Dawn of Hope, Path of Discovery, Prodigious Growth, Urban Utopia, Bounty of Might, Flower / Flourish, Boros Keyrune, and Selesnya Cluestone: These are all cards that either don't mesh great with the rest of the deck, or are decent, but have cards that can usually do the same thing better.

Big Boyz: Meglonoth: Great power for 6 mana, and can really pump out damage both attacking and blocking each time around the table! Mycoid Shepherd: Pretty decent source of lifegain. Paleoloth: Graveyard recursion. Spearbreaker Behemoth: Gives your important stuff indestructibility! Spellbreaker Behemoth: Can absolutely wreck blue control. Woolly Thoctar: 5/4 for 3. Nuff said. Bull Cerodon: Really solid creature to keep bashing your opponent's with. Godsire: Can be hard to play, but will generate an insane amount of value if it stays in play. Stalking Vengeance: When your stuff dies, so do your opponents! Victory's Herald: massive boost to your field, especially with lifegain.

Mana Ramp: Gruul Signet and Selesnya Signet: Some of the best ramp for three color decks. Drumhunter, Exuberant Firestoker, Sacellum Godspeaker, and Sunseed Nurturer: Can be okay as ramp, while also synergizing with your theme. Mul Daya Channelers: can be either a 5/5, or help you ramp into one. Somberwald Sage, Beastcaller Savant, Birds of Paradise, Channeler Initiate, Chromatic Lantern, Commander's Sphere, Draconic Disciple, Llanowar Elves, Atzocan Seer, and Drover of the Mighty: All permanents with useful ramp abilities, some of which even have a few other potential synergies. Traverse the Ulvenwald, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Yavimaya Elder, Harrow, Journey of Discovery, Gift of Estates, Cultivate, Caravan Vigil, and Collective Voyage: Cards with varying effects that let you search up lands from your library.

Utility: Asceticism: Lots of protection for your board. Anger and Fires of Yavimaya: gives all of your creatures haste. Signal the Clans: Great tutor card for creature based decks. Loxodon Warhammer and Behemoth Sledge: Trample and lifegain on a stick. Domri Rade: Card draw, repeatable fighting, and a crazy ult. Deafening Clarion, Austere Command, Earthquake, Mizzium Mortars, Comet Storm, and Savage Twister: All have the potential to be near one-sided boardwipes.

Lands: Ancient Ziggurat: With a focus on creatures, this card is usually really useful. Command Tower: Should be in every commander deck. Naya Panorama and Jungle Shrine Kessig Wolf Run: Extra damage and trample. Contested Cliffs: Repeatable fighting for your beasts.

There are probably more suggestions I could make, and certainly not all of these cards need to go in. Just some different ideas for you to consider!

Would "3M, the Multicolored Mammories of Magic" be an appropriate Official name for this?

You play green, man!

Leave all this silly fixing with lands to colors that don't know how to ramp and color fix.

Cultivate

Farseek

Kodama's Reach

Nature's Lore

Spring

If you are willing to spend a bit and don't mind to play creature ramp:

Greenweaver Druid

Rattleclaw Mystic

Shaman of Forgotten Ways

Somberwald Sage

Sylvan Caryatid

Also, there are better cheap alternatives to some cards. Jace's Ingenuity -> Urban Evolution Cathartic Reunion -> any blue draw spell

Counterspells are bad in maelstrom. You never want to see them from cascade, its the worst. Or at least play counterspells with some alternative upside. Also, 4 mana counters mostly suck.

Cut Overwhelming Denial Cancel Dispel

Add Mystic Confluence Swan Song Stubborn Denial

Also, some cards are mostly useless

Gaea's Blessing

The Unspeakable

Zo-Zu the Punisher (good card, wrong deck)

I like it, +1. A few thoughts:

I wouldn't run Druid of the Cowl, Leaf Gilder and Lifespring Druid when you haven't yet included Fyndhorn Elves, Elvish Mystic, Elves of Deep Shadow, Birds of Paradise or Priest of Titania. Consider Somberwald Sage as well - turn one dork, turn two Sage sets you up for turn three Prossh.

Obelisk of Jund is strictly worse than Darksteel Ingot, and Kodama's Reach will probably prove more useful than Pristine Talisman. Also, I'd replace Wild Wanderer with Farhaven Elf. Ashnod's Altar and Cryptolith Rite offer cheap sources of mana boom.

Consider Dictate of Erebos or Grave Pact (perhaps to supplement the Butcher of Malakir, perhaps to replace him).

I'd also try to get rid of lands that unconditionally enter tapped, unless the land is quite good. Guildgates and lifegain lands are definitely less valuable than lands like Luxury Suite or Spire Garden, Smoldering Marsh etc.
