So it's important to remember that EDH isn't standard: you have access in the cardpool to enough good mana rocks that there're perfectly keepable hands with only one or two lands, provided you have other mana sources. I also don't know about your meta, but in general one-for-ones like Lightning Bolt aren't very good in EDH since you have 3 opponents and are therefore facing down 3x as many cards. You're more likely to get hit with something like Toxic Deluge or Supreme Verdict. Even then, though, having dorks is worth it in my experience.

So I mean, the easiest way to improve the deck I can see is to add more 2-mana mana-rocks and potentially some 1-mana mana-dorks. I try to never run more than 32 or 33 lands in non-landfall decks, so cutting 5-6 lands is acceptable if you replace them with mana sources. Note that 3-mana mana-rocks are significantly worse than 2-mana rocks, and should be replaced. Consider running some of the following: the talismans (Talisman of Indulgence, Talisman of Hierarchy and friends), Fellwar Stone, Coldsteel Heart, the signets (Dimir Signet, Orzhov Signet and friends), Birds of Paradise, Avacyn's Pilgrim, Noble Hierarch, Elves of Deep Shadow, Deathrite Shaman, Orcish Lumberjack... All of these are low-cost ways to get more mana. Dropping a rock on turn two and casting a four-mana spell turn three is much better than ramping on turn 3, in my experience. With the exception of Noble Hierarch, I think all these cards should be well under $20.
