I think you need 4 Retreat to Coralhelm, since that's the real piece of the combo that doesn't have a duplicate. Tideforce Elemental, I think is the closest one, but then you would need a ton of blue mana, and the elemental would have to stay on the battlefield for a turn.
Maybe Skyshroud Ranger could add some redundancy to your combo, since it does the same thing as the snake scout.
I imagine the nut draw something like this:
Turn 1: Land, Sakura-Tribe Scout
Turn 2: Land, tap scout to get a third land Retreat to Coralhelm
I love this deck idea. I think you don't need those planeswalkers, or any of your instants or your elf ally, but I'm not sure what other cards would support your strategy.

I find that having playable hands comes down to flexible color mana and cheap to cast free to repeat damage. These 2 factors lead to Rakdos, Lord of Riots dropping at least turn 4.
You defiantly need more dual colord lands. As of this statment you have 3 lands and 4 mana rocks that can tap for either. that means you only have 7 chances to get a card that can pay for either the , or in Rakdos, Lord of Riots cost.
Lobber Crew, Nettle Drone, Thermo-Alchemist, Shepherd of Rot, and Endbringer are a good start for casting enablers. I will absolutly steal Plague Spitter, and Cryptolith Fragment Flip for my desk. I would also recommend Cinder Pyromancer, and Tunneling Geopede Basically I try to run 10 or more cards that don't take mana away from casting Rakdos, Lord of Riots, while still dealing at least 1 damage to an opponent.
The decklist is out of date from my current build but I am sure you can find some fun tools in Comrad Rakdos
I hope these tips help.

Braids of Fire allows you to cast big burn on upkeep, which gives you a ton more mana later... maybe mainboard it? It depends on how many instants you want to run. I agree with a Doubling Cube, it's almost as degenerate here as in an Omnath deck. Also, Commune with Lava is debatably the greatest draw spell in EDH for red. Two cards in maybeboard absolutely need to be mainboard, the Myojin of Infinite Rage and the Strionic Resonator. Some cards to cut, in my optinion, include Sizzle and Tunneling Geopede.

Have you looked at Myriad Landscape? It's a fun land that gets even more landfall triggers. Also, Tunneling Geopede would get out a lot of damage in this deck--it's the Guttersnipe of landfall. You might want to add a Fireball-like card or two, so that when you inevitably have 20 or so lands you can put the mana somewhere. If you need more sac outlets, you should look at Carnage Altar, Mortarpod, Tooth and Claw, Scorched Rusalka, Bloodshot Cyclops, and a personal favorite of mine, Shivan Harvest. Awesome deck. It looks both fun and simple to play. +1
Oh, and also...
...This is probably the only deck that I will ever have the honor of suggesting Doom Cannon for. So thank you.

Hmmm That actually sounds like a really solid plan, red has a lot of choices that would likely end the game real quickly. I should point out that Makindi Sliderunner, Plated Geopede and Tunneling Geopede would also be great additions to a red variant of the deck! Let me know if/when you ever get around to building the deck I would be very interested to see how it turns out!

And to come to speak of Tunneling Geopede, epajula, I need the Landfall-trigger for instand win. Its good to have a instant dmg source if u for example cant mill the opponent to death. Furthermore its converted Manacosts are 3 and i can tutor it via transmute for 3 mana same as other combo-pieces like Cloudstone Curio.i checked ur deck out. Oracle of Mul Daya and Burgeoning would be good choices for mine, too. Thank you

Meloku the Clouded Mirror and Azusa, Lost but Seeking both feel like they'd be great in here. And Scapeshift is a must! Another random thought, Faith's Reward could be a cool trick. Gives you some wrath protection, or could combo for a giant landfall with Scapeshift, Zuran Orb, etc. A bit situational, but I've found a lot of fun from that in EDH. I feel like Yavimaya Elder would be great too. And of course you could add as many fetch lands as you want for the double landfall trigger, but obviously that drives the price up substantially so I understand if you don't want to do that.
I could see cutting Tunneling Geopede, it doesn't seem like it does enough. But looks like a really fun deck, makes me want to give this commander a try!
