Landless in Legacy is pretty much Manaless Dredge. I assume that's not the direction you want the deck to go, because it's A. a very tight decklist with very few flex spots (ergo, all the decks are basically the same) and B. technically not landless, thanks to Bazaar of Baghdad.
Still, maybe take a look at a couple lists. There might be something interesting useful for you.

I don't believe the "land creature" idea works at all, because you don't cast lands... it's why Dryad Arbor has no mana value (she's played as a land, and is a creature with no mana value) and why Arixmethes, Slumbering Isle is only a land under specific conditions, but is still cast as a creature.
These Gods would still be creatures in all non-battlefield zones, such as your library and hand, as well as on the stack. They would also be lands, meaning these are lands you cast - which isn't something you do.
Furthermore, being lands, they have no land-related abilities. Now it is true that not all lands in MTG tap for mana, but to be called a land that also taps for or does nothing is a little... strange. For example, one land that doesn't tap for mana is Dark Depths, Glacial Chasm, Diamond Valley and Bazaar of Baghdad.

Bazaar of Baghdad 's ability will cause you to draw 2 cards (taking the top two cards of your library and adding them to your hand) and discard 2 cards (exiling two copies of Basking Rootwalla from your hand and putting Vengevine from your hand into your graveyard). Then both Basking Rootwalla 's madness abilities will trigger. One will resolve, letting you cast it (moving it from exile to the stack), and when it resolves it will move from the stack to the battlefield. Then the second madness trigger will resolve letting you cast it (moving it from exile to the stack) triggering Vengevine 's trigger. Once Vengevine 's ability resolves, it will move from the graveyard to the battlefield, then Basking Rootwalla will resolve moving it from the stack to the battlefield.

if i use a Bazaar of Baghdad and discard 2x Basking Rootwalla and 1x Vengevine - does activating the Basking Rootwalla madness effect - in turn then proc the Vengevine effect for 2 creatures? Im not sure how the madness effects resolve on the stack if im discarding all 3 at the same time - or if the Vengevine would have to already have been in my graveyard first for its effect to go off.

Like mentioned, Vintage is where the most expensive decks are. Most of them are solidly 40,000 USD, thanks to the ubiquitous Black Lotus , Mox set ( Pearl , Sapphire , Jet , Ruby , and Emerald ), Ancestral Recall , and Time Walk , plus Timetwister to fill out the Power Nine. Even the least expensive major Vintage deck, Dredge, can hit five digits, thanks to Bazaar of Baghdad .
So to find the most expensive decks here, search under the Vintage format and find decks with foils on everything that can be foiled. Playtest it and feel the power.

michaelvlevine I'm trying to make a deck based on yours for my casual playgroup. Safe to say I can't afford Bazaar of Baghdad, City of Traitors, Grim Monolith, Mishra's Workshop, Mox Diamond, and Serra's Sanctum. However, my playgroup has agreed to allow 6 proxies per deck. Would Basalt Monolith work to replace Grim Monolith? I'd like to reduce the overall power of the deck by replacing some cards with flavor cards like Omen of the Sun, Heliod's Intervention, and Spear of Heliod. Cool deck man!

Looks like a solid build +1
The only thing I might suggest is that with a relatively low mana curve like you've got, that you might look into adding some Card Draw like from Bazaar of Baghdad, Revitalize, or something along those lines.
You might also get away with less than 24 lands given this deck's low curve; you could even supplement it with Land Tutoring available from cards like Knight of the White Orchid, Tithe, and/or Gift of Estates.
Also, while I acknowledge that he's a little pricey to order singles of, Stoneforge Mystic is hugely beneficial to decks relying on Equipment conditions as a primary Win.
