Creature — Elephant
When Terastodon enters the battlefield, you may destroy up to three target noncreature permanents. For each permanent put into a graveyard this way, its controller puts a 3/3 green Elephant creature token onto the battlefield.

I have this fun little primer I put together shortly after Hapatra came out that I've tinkered with almost non-stop, Mistress of Poisons, Hapatra Primer and for some reason it only recently occurred to me that Rishkar, Peema Renegade and Hunter of Eyeblights deserve a test run. As do any similar cards but I'm having trouble finding any other similar cards and would appreciate some help.
I would also love to find more things like Beast Within and Terastodon. So I can give creatures to people and then eat them to make snakes :) a bit huggy but sometimes a little hug is what the vizier needs.

All of these suggestions should be under 5$ for ramp you should be running Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx you should take out wayfarers bauble for Emerald Medallion, greenweaver druid for Shaman of Forgotten Ways (the formidable trigger can just kill your opponent occasionally) and fydhorn elder for Priest of Titania or Elvish Archdruid (but probably both because your commander makes elves and you need the mana) other ramp to consider would be Rhonas's Monument and Lifecrafter's Bestiary. I see that you want to run a lot of hydras, consider not including as many as some hydras are less than stellar. If I had to make some suggestions, thorn elemental for Terastodon and mistcutter hydra for Regal Force. I like the decklist overall though, hydra theme is neat!

How about Deadeye Navigator? It has synergy with Acidic Slime, Archaeomancer, Avenger of Zendikar, Coiling Oracle, Eternal Witness, Greenwarden of Murasa, Mulldrifter, Mystic Snake, Reclamation Sage, Solemn Simulacrum, Terastodon, Torrential Gearhulk, Venser, Shaper Savant and Woodland Bellower. Oh, and if you want deadeye, you should include Tooth and Nail to get both deadeye and the creature you want to use :).
I recently built a Rashmi deck myself, you might find something you like there.. Rush Me! (Rashmi EDH).

There's all kinds of budget options to make either one of those decks nasty.
or, you could have some real fun with Guilty Conscience and Stuffy Doll (goes infinite, but you must have a c-c-c-c-combo breaker, I prefer Sundial of the Infinite, Deadeye Navigator or some sac engine, or else some rules nazi will tell you it's a draw because the turn never ends, or some shit...)
Then there's always Odric, Lunarch Marshal or Edric, Spymaster of Trest to discourage them attacking you (sadly, Odric requires other creatures with keywords, but hey, Drogskol Reaver is still a thing...)
Plus, you could run your very own Terastodon with the inclusion of green. Also, Manglehorn, Prowling Serpopard, Acidic Slime, Fathom Mage + Inexorable Tide , not to mention Cryptolith Rite + Deadeye Navigator + Village Bell-Ringer , Murkfiend Liege, the list goes on and on...

before I start, let me state my meta at my LGS
2 Mizzix of the Izmagnus: burn/combo
1 Keranos, God of Storms: combo/burn for the most part
1 Gisela, Blade of Goldnight: voltron
1 Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord: crappy budget build for a new player
1 Omnath, Locus of Mana: ooga booga, me play forest. ooga booga, me play creature.
1 Prossh, Skyraider of Kher + Food Chain: This person is literally satan.
Keep those in mind while I explain my predicament. In order to balance my play group, I play brago stax. one problem, I only have a budget version with the most annoying piece being Lavinia of the Tenth . I don't run any actual stax artifacts. I've been trying to design a deck that would be able to keep 5 other combo heavy/aggro heavy decks at bay over the course of a game. its not working. I know you all are out there. What are the most dickish, douchey cards to use here against this meta to keep them under control? should I switch commanders?
the deck so far:

You said you want to speed your deck up. How fast are we talking?
If it was me, I'd start by adding some rocks like Selesnya Signet et al. Bloom Tender is great, and Lotus Cobra with fetch lands is also great. Personally I'm fussy about my mana base, so shocks like Temple Garden, duals like Plateau and fetches (like Windswept Heath) are a must.
Spot removal is also important for those times when you're not the first one off the line.
Terastodon is a great suggestion.
Woodfall Primus fits the category also for removal creatures.
There are a lot of Eldrazi that are great for EDH, annihilator is strong. My Mayael deck doesn't use them, but soon I'm sure I'm going to turn that direction. It That Betrays for example is probably desirable. These help suppress your opponents efforts.

For my taste, you have too many cards that benefit your opponents just as much as they help you. Archangel of Strife could be Thunderfoot Baloth or Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite. Borderland Explorer could be Sylvan Ranger or Borderland Ranger or Civic Wayfinder. Ghirapur Orrery and Rites of Flourishing could be virtually any card draw engines that helps only you: Drumhunter, Garruk's Packleader, Magus of the Library, Primordial Sage, Mind's Eye, Seer's Sundial, and Staff of Nin all come to mind. Collective Voyage could be Cultivate or Nissa's Pilgrimage.
The next problem is that you are light on land. I use less land than most people, and you are at least 2 lands short for me, probably more like 3-4. And two of your lands don't produce any mana, meaning you would need even more. You could replace Evolving Wilds with Naya Panorama or Krosan Verge, or just add them at the expense of a creature or enchantment. You have all sorts of conditional taplands and Grand Coliseum, so replacing one of them with (or just adding) Jungle Shrine doesn't seem like a bad idea.
You are also light on spot removal, a trap I have fallen into more than once. Terastodon would probably have a home in your creature mix, and Fade into Antiquity, Krosan Grip, or even just Naturalize would not be a waste of space.

I like your list. Basically i like everything that spins around zombies. I made my own list
Commander / EDH*
and that's how i stumbled on yours.
I am playing more lands than you, the reason being that they get punished a lot on my playgroup ( Terastodons with emphasis on plural). Just in case you go up against something similar you could try sqeezing a Crucible of Worlds. Perhaps you could also benefit from a Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx.
Decree of Pain is another card i can recommend. You get to replenish your hand and as you already said so yourself about board wipes, with Vengeful Dead and Plague Belcher it hurts them more than you.
Finally since you rely on a couple of counters to protect your important assets, a decent solution is Mystical Teachings to help you tutor them in instant speed. or it can fetch Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir if you finally decide to include him.
