Temple of Malady Discussion

I've been running this deck for a bit. Its a solid EDH deck out of the box that can be immediately competitive. The biggest issues I've had so far are pacing. It needs more bi-color lands, and more land fetch cards.
Some cards I'm looking at include Awakening Zone, Blooming Marsh, Bojuka Bog, Catacomb Sifter, Dark Depths, From Beyond, Hissing Quagmire, Woodland Cemetery, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, Thespian's Stage, Temple of Malady, Temple of the False God, Reliquary Tower, Ramunap Excavator, Overgrown Tomb to try and get lands or better land options. Also, Dark Depths + Thespian's Stage can turn nasty quick.
We seem to be on the same page with a lot of our sideboard cards. Couple others I'm contemplating that might work, are adding Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + Triskelion as a nice combo. I'm also considering Bontu the Glorified. I also plan to add a Vampire Hexmage to combo with Dark Depths.
Hope some of these ideas help!

If you're looking at getting big dudes onto the board, you can't go past Quicksilver Amulet. Since you're using a lot of the Theros Gods, Dragon Arch will also work well. In addition, Cryptic Gateway would work as well for your gods. Also while it will take a bit of time, Aether Vial is likely to serve you well.
Also, if you intend to use the tap tri-lands, Amulet of Vigor is a requirement. And if you put that in, go for the Theros temple Scry lands: Temple of Abandon, Temple of Deceit, Temple of Enlightenment, Temple of Epiphany, Temple of Malady, Temple of Malice, Temple of Mystery, Temple of Plenty, Temple of Silence, Temple of Triumph
They also fit the god theme of your deck.

O Decimator Beetle eu colocaria no main deck, o side eu deixaria esses que so situacionais, por exemplo o Cut / Ribbons, Abrade e Heaven / Earth. Reviving Melody eu tiraria fora. Agora no vou conseguir indicar cards para substitulos, ento vamos para as lands.

The following are cards you should cut:Nissa Revane: this card is very bad, and it is only remotely playable alongside Nissa's Chosen. Life gain is pretty shitty in every matchup except storm and burn, and this card being four mana is just not worth it most of the time.Essence Warden: see the argument against nissa.Prism Ring:see above.Heedless One: big creatures aren't great in elves, which is typically a go wide strategy which would only be hampered by the addition of an expensive fattie that dies to removal. One of modern elves' biggest strengths is resilience to spot removal due to its swarm of little dudes, and this card goes against that completely.Might of the Masses: The above argument applies to this too, and might opens you up to too many 2 for 1s.Temple of Malady: Temples are far too slow for a deck trying to deploy dorks on turn 1. The scry is also usually not great since you get to see so much of your deck with Collected Company and Elvish Visionary. I would consider 4 Gilt-Leaf Palace or Overgrown Tomb instead as they are faster and more consistent.
I would consider playing 2 of either Chord of Calling or Eldritch Evolution as they would be very good while you are comboing off. Speaking of comboing off, your deck doesn't seem to be able to do so due to the lack of Heritage Druid, and to a lesser extent Nettle Sentinel. This 2 card combo( or just Druid alone) can allow you to power out your entire hand in a turn easily to just take over the game. I would not be opposed to 1-2 Ezuri, Renegade Leader either, as he can regenerate archdruids or pump your team.I'm not saying your deck is bad, I'm just saying elves in modern has so much explosive potential and I feel you aren't abusing it as much as you could be.

Thanks for the feedback!
What sorcery or instants can you think of to improve this deck? I think I've seen some black sorcerys that allow to search for a card in your deck so maybe that's a good replacement for say Duress? Also, do you believe I should just put in some regular lands vs having Temple of Malady?
I will be looking to downsize as you advised. If there's anything else you can see on how to improve this feel free to send it my way.
