Creature — Giant
Beanstalk Giant's power and toughness are each equal to the number of lands you control.
(You may cast Beanstalk Giant from exile if you sent it on an adventure.)
Sorcery — Adventure
Search your library for a basic land card, put it onto the battlefield, then shuffle your library.
(You may cast Fertile Footsteps for from anywhere that you have the permission to cast this, then exile it on an adventure instead of putting it into your graveyard. When you have not chosen to cast Fertile Footsteps, this card is treated only as Beanstalk Giant in whatever zone it is in.)
(Example scenarios for Fertile Footsteps| You may cast this off of Melek, Izzet Paragon. You may not target this with Snapcaster Mage. Thalia, Guardian of Thraben increases the cost of this. Electrodominance requires X=3. If your opponent owns this and you cast it, you may cast their Beanstalk Giant from exile. You can cast this from a cascade spell if the spell has a cost greater than Beanstalk Giant's cost.)

My advice is consider cutting a few land ramp spells and adding some repeatable draw sources such as Valakut Exploration, Garruk's Uprising and Tireless Tracker. Exploration uses landfall to play cards from the top of your library including lands. It can also be graveyard fuel for Trove Warden, Sun Titan and Emeria Shepherd. Uprising is an amazing budget card in Commander with creature strategies especially with Omnath, Locus of Rage and Rampaging Baloths since it triggers when a token is created. Tracker, Mystery Booster version, creates clues with landfall and clues can sac to draw.
Crop Rotation can tutor for any land which is nice with Bounce lands, Fetch lands, Kessig Wolf Run and Gavony Township. Emeria Angel and Scute Swarm are build your own army with landfall which is very good with Doubling Season, Felidar Retreat, Township and Beastmaster Ascension.
Cinder Glade and Canopy Vista are some land upgrades for the manabase because they have good interaction with lots of basic lands and they're two different land types. Farseek, Nature's Lore, Grasslands, Mountain Valley can search for one of these dual lands. Krosan Verge and Skyshroud Claim can get both of them. These Battle lands are $2 or less each at TCGPlayer. Exotic Orchard is a budget Rainbow land that's quite good in multiplayer Commander.
Cards to consider cutting:
- Gruul Guildgate
- Selesnya Guildgate
- Boros Guildgate
- 1x Forest
- Awakening of Vitu-Ghazi
- Beanstalk Giant
- Nissa's Renewal
- Far Wanderings
- Circuitous Route
- Rampant Growth
- Retreat to Kazandu
Good luck with your deck.

Scute Swarm can be so much explosive that I had to find it a spot. I have move Beanstalk Giant to the sideboard, and drop Yavimaya Dryad. You still have the land for 3, and Beans is far more a bigger treat than the Dryad.

Otherwise basically what jaymc1130 said.

Scallywallwest Beanstalk Giant finds you an untapped land, instead of a tapped land like Cultivate. This allows for multiple plays in one turn. In addition to this, if you have Lucky Clover, you can get even more lands for less mana.

Hey, nice deck! I personally love Eldraine and all of its mechanics. I know the whole point of the deck is to gain value off of the Adventures on cards, but Beanstalk Giant is kind of pricey mana-wise and its adventure doesn't do as much as cultivate. I'd say lower the count to 3 and toss in another Cultivate. Otherwise, nice thing ya got goin' on here!

Absolutely hilariously fun deck to play! I ended up taking the idea of dropping a bomb with draws and dumps because my early draws were all removal (Murderous Rider) and land-delving (Beanstalk Giant) so even though I had Edgewall Innkeeper in my hand from turn 1 I held him back to keep the ace up my sleeve. When I dropped him he brought that marauding cavalry along with him and it was gameover from there. So cool!
