There's no specific rule really, beyond "cards only do what they say".
Polluted Delta can only search for a card that is an Island or Swamp card. Temple of Deceit is neither; it has only "Land" in its typeline. Compare that to Swamp , Island , Watery Grave , Hallowed Fountain , etc. All of them have the "Island" or "Swamp" basic land type.
Lagonna-Band Trailblazer would be a better option than the Disowned Ancestor if you are shooting for the heroic triggers, however in this case it would make a T2 Kin-Tree Invocation much more unlikely because you would have to hit a W/G or W/B instant playable dual land on T1 which would leaves you with Mana Confluence , Caves of Koilos or Llanowar Wastes . Where as using Disowned Ancestor , Swamp and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth join that pool.
i would drop the Wall of Essence and 1 Hero's Downfall in favor for 2 Utter End (which removes anything that's not a land) and 2 more bigboys , Polukranos, World Eater , Ivorytusk Fortress , Soul of Theros , ... Something that can pack a punch if your initial plan fails.
furthermore looking at the curve, you're most likely not going to make Fleecemane Lion Monsterous, which makes it quite a shame to play. As mentioned before you could replace them with Abzan Falconer or such to give everything with a +1/+1 counter on it flying, or High Sentinels of Arashin which get stronger for each creature with +1/+1 counters on it. The Abzan Ascendancy s, Abzan Charm s and Ajani, Mentor of Heroes work well for this strategy. This also possibly opens up the path for Scourge of Skola Vale .
3x Swamp in sideboard?
How about a Sorin, Solemn Visitor instead
I'd argue that three-color decks don't struggle to run basics. You just choose to. :)
I'd recommend a manabase like this (staying at 22 lands):
That's erring on the side of more shocklands, you can run a basic Mountain as well to take less damage or more fetchlands. Graven Cairns does actual nothing in the deck, as getting Blood Crypt should be easy enough and you run no double red spells or a Mountain . If you play the Mountain a 1-of Cairns may be worth it.
