So back to your manabase - excellent. I think that for the price point you're working with this is excellent. But, there's always room for improvement. Obviously, if you can afford it going for a complete set of fetches is worth it but since budget is an issue, I would consider the addition of Prismatic Vista. Also I would go after the land cycle from Battlebond, specifically: Spire Garden, Luxury Suite, Morphic Pool, Sea of Clouds, and Bountiful Promenade. They're all essentially budget original dual lands, and since EDH is a multiplayer format it will be a rare occasion when these lands ever come into play tapped.
Now, what to cut? to make room for the Prismatic Vista I'd cut Terramorphic Expanse. Easy swap there. as for the aforementioned 5 lands i'd cut the tri-lands (Arcane Sanctum, Crumbling Necropolis, etc.) . They're strictly worse in that they will always come in tapped. Sure, you're losing a 3rd color you could potentially tap for...but the pro outweighs the con.

thewolfiest, it will depend on what exactly you want out of your manabase. I typically prioritize untapped lands or specific utility functions. Removing duals takes away tutor targets for fetches, so you'll need to include basics.
Talking strictly meeting color requirements, for allied lands you can look at the multiplayer-specific lands that come into play tapped unless you have 2 or more opponents.
For the Enemy lands, you are more restricted. I'd look at the list below, leaning toward whatever priorities you held for the manabase. Easy route would be yanking the last 3 for 1 swamp, 1 forest, and 1 Prismatic Vista
Honestly, I would do this, replacing all Duals with:

Your lands could use some improvement too: Stomping Ground , Wooded Foothills , Command Tower , Reliquary Tower , Temple of the False God , Cinder Glade , Game Trail , Fire-Lit Thicket , Karplusan Forest , Temple of Abandon , Rootbound Crag , Kessig Wolf Run , Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx , Spire Garden , and Copperline Gorge are all easy additions

- Hissing Quagmire : Enters tapped, I've never used the creature ability, and I can't search it by land name. Big sad.
- Lavaclaw Reaches : (See above)
- Raging Ravine : (See above)
- Treetop Village : (See above)
- Subterranean Tremors : I've really only ever cast this for the artifact removal, @ X=4. My creatures can't handle that much damage, so it is generally a board wipe I don't like, and I would prefer not to lose my artifacts (AKA Crucible of Worlds, which kicks ass in this deck). Therefore, I am replacing this with Vandalblast .
+ 2x Forest
+ Sakura-Tribe Elder : Honestly I don't know what I was thinking not having this in the deck in the first place.

Alright couple of suggestions, I would cut Timber Gorge , Sheltered Thicket , and Gruul Guildgate for sure and replace all three with Forest . Right now you're at 75%+ Green casting cost skewed and your mana base only leans a combined 54% green. So being Gruul and wanting to smash face, let's get those tapped lands outta the way!
Now the Hideaway lands have always been hit or miss for me, both in terms of what gets tucked under them and if/when they activate. If budget isn't a huge factor I'd suggest a Spire Garden and/or a Taiga now before you have a heart attack just put Taiga on the back burner and watch for Damaged/HP ones to come on market, you can get those for a fraction of the price, it just won't be pretty.
On ward to creatures! Rubblehulk is hilarious for when people block the Xenagos'd creature and take a separate one on the chin, Bloodrush with the hulk and enjoy your opponent's shocked and betrayed face. Further Archetype of Aggression is tailor made for this style of deck.
