With the resurgence of the lands theme in the deck, I feel like I want one or two more utility lands. Options:
Extra land drops + Crucible effects is a situation that the deck may get into pretty often.
Strip Mine backup. Never not good.
Not as good as Thespian's Stage, but that doesn't make it bad.
Fetchable creature that can be sac'd to creature outlets and used with creature recursion.
Removal, albeit slow.
Argoth, Sanctum of Nature Meld
Token maker, feeds recursion. But it's very slow and the ETB untap condition isn't reliable. It makes me consider Titania, Voice of Gaea Meld so I can tutor for one when I have the other (and Titania's lifegain on its own isn't the worst either), but that's probably too many slots for an unreliable effect. The meld not happening until your own upkeep sucks too.
Kessig Wolf Run
Wincon on a land. Though Korvold usually grows quickly enough on his own to do the job.

Made some adjustments to the deck to modernize a little; classic toolbox Golgari-style Tortex seems to have fallen slightly out of favor for Abzan aggro, but we don’t need no white mana!
Eccentric Farmer does double duty filling our graveyard and recurring lands to meet our drops, so traded out one Stinkweed Imp and a Thoughtpicker Witch (who I’ve almost never needed to use in playing this list). With Farmer helping us meet our land drops better, dropped the two cycling lands to make room for a pair of Kitchen Imps to push early game aggro. Lastly, ditched the Perilous Myr for a big beatstick in Writhing Necromass to contend against the likes of Gurmag Angler or potentially even bigger creatures.

I co-sign almost everything ldvatwa said, but I'm here to take it a step further..
You lack only one of the upkeep token generators in Mono-, that is Dreadhorde Invasion. Despite that, you otherwise have all the token generation in the world for . A couple of stax pieces like a Contamination & Smokestack, etc., could easily slide into here without changing very much at all..
Finally your land situation. I think you will want to cut down on your non-basic utility lands. Even though you are running Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, you will want to maximize your Swamp-count to consistently get the most out of Cabal Coffers (and goes triple for Cabal Stronghold), or if you even want to consistently play your Everglades & Lake of the Dead!
I would cut Barren Moor, Hagra Broodpit Flip, Malakir Mire Flip, Phyrexian Tower, and Vesuva; all for basic Snow-Covered Swamps... and maybe a Karn's Bastion since you are running several Planeswalkers..

Delphen7 I feel like Castle Locthwain is a good addition, but Barren Moor feels just a tad too slow for my tastes. I'll add the latter to the maybeboard for now and run a few castles to see how it pans out. Thank you!!

Library of Leng is indeed a wonky card, but it's a pretty nifty combo piece within certain types of discard concept strategies.
When it comes to Madness, what you essentially have is two replacement effects modifying the same instance of the card being discarded, so you have a choice of which you want to apply. You can either discard the card into exile, or you may discard it to the top of your library. If you discard it into exile, then Library of Leng will no longer see an effect to replace and you then have the choice of casting the card for it's Madness cost or putting it into your graveyard. If you discard it to the top of your library then the Madness ability will no longer see an effect to replace, the card will not be in exile, and you will not be able to cast it for it's Madness cost. In practical terms, Madness and Library will not combo together to produce a cool line of play. In real world terms, Anje decks might not mind, they might be very happy to discard the card to the top of the library and repeatedly draw and discard it using Anje's ability. With a card like Glint-Horn Buccaneer in play, for example, this would kill opponents.
A mechanic with better synergy with Library of Leng is Cycling. Cycling cards discard themselves first, then draw a card. This can be used to cycle the same card over and over again, and a similar situation as to the aforementioned Buccaneer line of play can occur with a card like Drannith Stinger in play killing opponents as a result of this process. A combo such as Library of Leng + Tectonic Reformation + Surly Badgersaur + Drannith Stinger + any land would form a self sustaining loop to kill opponents, for example.
Additionally, some Cycling cards have triggered effects when they cycle, and Library of Leng can allow a pilot to loop those effects. Gilded Lotus + Library of Leng + Vizier of Tumbling Sands would produce infinite mana, for example. Add in something like a Lightning Rift and this could become lethal. Bone Miser + Library of Leng + Barren Moor is another infinite mana combo, though it only produces black mana. Add in a Gempalm Polluter, however, and this set up would also become lethal.
