Wrath of God
Destroy all creatures. They can't be regenerated.
Wrath of God Discussion

Your deck wins by having bigger and better creatures than your opponent, so you really shouldn't be in a situation where Wrath of God helps you. You might, however, be in one where Urza's Ruinous Blast does. Legendary creatures aren't too popular, and you have a good few. I would probably just cut it, though.
If it works for you, keep Luminarch Ascension , but I don't expect it to be relevant very often. Maybe against mill or control decks, in principle, but I'd cut it.
Frontier Siege seems like a fun piece of jank, but not a solid part of your deck. I'd cut it.
You really want to be able to put an untapped green mana in play on turn 1, so I'd cut Blossoming Sands and Canopy Vista for something faster. Horizon Canopy is probably the best, followed by Windswept Heath , Temple Garden , and Razorverge Thicket . Unsurprisingly, that's also how they're priced.
If you go all in on dual lands (which I recommend), I would cut Flagstones of Trokair . They don't do that much if there's no straight-up land destruction in the local meta, and they can't be fetched if someone uses Ghost Quarter , Field of Ruin , Settle the Wreckage or Assassin's Trophy against you.
Deadly Recluse is a fine blocker, but all it does for you is postpone things, and what you really want to do is put your big dudes into play. I'd replace it with more ramp, or possibly card draw. Take a look at Thraben Inspector or Wall of Omens .

I don't know what your financial situation is like, but Top and Azusa are pretty valuable, and I might just trade them for handfuls of $5-10 cards for whatever deck you choose to build. If not, Azusa is a good fit for Tatyova, Benthic Druid . Top is still good in EDH, although some people frown on it for how it can slow games down. The best deck for it is Yuriko, the Tiger's Shadow . I would stay away from Earth Surge shenanigans. Wrath of God effects are very common in EDH, and turning your lands into creatures for more than a single turn is dangerous.
Here's a review of the most recent preconstructed EDH decks that Wizards makes. They function right out of the box, and the WUG deck has been rated the best to play as is, lining up well with your color preferences and the dual lands you have.

Dawn of Hope seems a very nice card for this deck, considering all the life gain. Also, I think Legion's Landing Flip is better than Call to the Feast or Queen's Commission . Hour of Reckoning is probably better for you than Wrath of God , since you can easily convoke it and you will be left with a lot of tokens.
Regarding lands, I don't think balance is the problem as much as the number. Your mana curve isn't low enough for just 20 lands, and you even run three colors! Maybe one Swamp, one Mountain, and one Fetch Land like Terramorphic Expanse ?

Though our colors and budgets are a bit different, I might recommend you look at my Home alone deck, which features a similar strategy using Thantis, the Warweaver instead of War's Toll . My deck is a bit different; it's based less on not being attacked, but on forcing people to attack you and then punishing them for it; but the general ideas are the same.
Of immediate note to me is Vicious Shadows . People tend to see this card and read "when a creature an opponent control dies, that creatures controller takes damage equal to the number of cards in their hand." But it's not that. It's any creature, and it's target player. With a card out like war's toll, you should have some options.
Stuffy Doll is a really fun card to look at, and like vicious shadows, it gives you some political power. Watch people attack you with a single creature, knowing you'll block it and hurt a mutual foe. It also pairs really well with red murder spells Blasphemous Act and Star of Extinction . I'm noticing you don't really have board wipe spells here; those two and also the white Wrath of God are good choices.
Archetype of Finality gives every creature you have death-touch, making every blocker you have extremely capable.
Blood Reckoning is a good for making people not want to attack you.
Grave Betrayal is very, very good.
Xantcha, Sleeper Agent is a creature that is incredibly good.

I'm worried that by adding "better cards" the deck is pricing itself out of where it's supposed to be. This deck was never intended to be super competitive. It's meant to be a fun casual deck. Please keep that in mind. I might actually rework this deck to remove the Karlov of the Ghost Council , Damnation , Wrath of God , and Godless Shrine . Replacing them with slightly lesser powered alternative would reduce the cost of the deck by half.
QUESTION: Is Mentor of the Meek the best card drawing engine for the deck? I think I like it better then Viscera Seer , since Viscera Seer is pretty much dependent on the Tombstone Stairwell already being be setup. Once it's setup, most games are going to be over quickly.

I mean, look, it's not like the EDH ban list is specifically constructed with cEDH in mind--a lot of is just dedicated to banning really expensive cards that wouldn't break the format but would give no one any reason to play anything else ( Ancestral Recall ), or annoying pubstomp cards people wouldn't stop playing in casual that aren't actually that great ( Sylvan Primordial , Primeval Titan ). Cards like Yawgmoth's Will and Hermit Druid are way better in the format, obviously, but no one seems to care.
That being said, following that logic, why not ban cards like Rhystic Study and Cyclonic Rift ? Rhystic is the format's real Ancestral Recall (if Recall had the added effect of recurring itself on your upkeep unless any player paid 1), and it's not like it's ever been even remotely fun to play against in casual. It's not like the game could really function without staples--just because every white deck (in casual) plays Wrath of God doesn't mean that card is overpowered, but, come on, if you can ban Upheaval , you can ban Cyclonic Rift (it's honestly harder to win with upheaval than with cyclonic rift, and, besides, Obliterate isn't banned, is it)?
