+1 the deck looks pretty good. Low to the ground, got some interaction and instant speed protection. I would try to add a few more pieces of draw to maintain gas.
Beast Within - Removal
Berserk - Fun with malignus, infect creature, removal of opponents creatures, ramp with selvala, etc...
Deflecting Swat - Redirect targetted removal/draw/extra turns, counter counterspells all for free
Momentous Fall - Draw in response to removal
Return of the Wildspeaker - See above
The Great Henge - Draw, ramp, lifegain
Hull Breach - Removal

Profet93 Thanks for the recommendations!
I used to run Yavimaya Hollow, but ended up cutting it a while back. This is just me as a player, but I can't resist playing aggressively and dumping my mana on my turn (unless I have a guaranteed reactive play like Nature's Claim or Krosan Grip), and it's for that reason Yavimaya Hollow rarely ever performed for me. The same applies for why I play Memory Jar over Mind's Eye, I'm too addicted to explosive turns.
Scute Swarm is absolutely, positively, pants-on-head ridiculous. It works like so: When a land enters the battlefield under your control, put a 1/1 insect creature token onto the battlefield. However, if at that time you control six or more lands, instead create a token copy of Scute Swarm (which has Scute Swarm’s ability, and will be able to create copies of itself). IE - Scute Swarm is on the battlefield, you play your 6th land (it's Fabled Passage), you now have two total Scute Swarms on the field. You crack Fabled Passage and get a Forest, which triggers both of your Scute Swarms, and you now have four total Scute Swarms. You play Ramunap Excavator and proceed to play / crack Fabled passage two more times, meaning your total number of Scute Swarms will go from 4 to 8 to 16 to 32 to 64. Here's the scryfall link, which has a good explanation of the rules text: Scryfall
Ancient Greenwarden looks like a boss, I'm just not sure what to cut for him yet.
Titania, Protector of Argoth was cut long ago before I had all the fetches (and prior to Prismatic Vista and Fabled Passage), so perhaps it's time to give her another shot. Spots are a little tight in this deck though, and currently, I'm looking for more cheap draw.
Suuuuuuuuuper smart call on the Snow-Covered Forests, I should do that immediately.
I haven't ran into the Bane / Concordant issue yet, though I'm sure it'll feel bad when I do. G-wave isn't often something I use as a win con, rather, more of a value piece. With the number of tutors I'm running, Craterhoof Behemoth is my win 90% of the time.

Yavimaya Hollow - Protection
Ancient Greenwarden - Extra redundancy of ramunap/crucible which triggers field of the dead, Scute Swarm, Tireless Tracker, rampaging baloths and avenger of zendikar.
Scute Swarm - Can you explain how this works exactly? I've been considering to add it in my build but I never quite understood how this worked....
I've seen lots of Azusa lists run Memory Jar, I personally use Mind's eye. Curious how the jar is working for you, I feel in my meta, I would dump my hand, play jar and then they would remove it.
I see Titania, Protector of Argoth in the mayeboard- What was your thought process on excluding it? Its not an allstar but it can pull its weight synergizing with 10% of your deck, providing recursion for field/cradle when they are smart enough to inevitably destroy it.
Why not replace half your forests with snow-covered to more easily trigger field of the dead?
How does G-waving your deck onto the field work, as bane destroys your haste outlet. I'm sure you can win other ways such as E-wit back the outlet and cast it but I took out Bane in my deck for that reason.

This is so cool! Have you considered Rapacious One instead of Essence Feed? Maybe Ashnod's Altar? I feel like the altar would be able to net you twice the mana from your eldrazi spawn and can also provide on-demand death to your creatures, and a hit from Rapacious One can easily advance your board state towards something powerful and repeatable.
Your land base looks good, however Korvold especially benefits from lands that can sacrifice themselves. Fetch lands like Wooded Foothills, Verdant Catacombs, Bloodstained Mire, Windswept Heath, Misty Rainforest,Prismatic Vista, Scalding Tarn and Polluted Delta could really speed up your mana base and let you draw cards at the same time! I get that they may be out of budget- proxies are always an option if your playgroup is cool with them. Additional lands like Spawning Bed, Lotus Field, Jund Panorama, Blighted Woodland and Fabled Passage work well too.
Harrow instead of Wild Wanderer would fit your sacrifice theme. Pitiless Plunderer would give you double value while Broodwarden only buffs some of your creatures. You're not really winning with spawn, and a lot of your best eldrazi produce scions anyway.
I like your removal package, but I feel like there are some unneeded spells that can also be cut for ramp/removal. Things like Fog, Spawning Breath, Prismatic Omen, and Wave of Vitriol don't really advance your game plan (at least not as much as you'd like them to), and I think things such as Breaker of Armies, Nature's Lore, and Corpsehatch, and Commander's Sphere would work some wonders.
This is a super cool concept and I'm eager to see it in the future. I hope this helps!

Beatismcscoots This deck wins mainly through combat damage. Beastmaster Ascension can make that easier to do, however, I have won by swinging without it. There is also the Najeela, the Blade-Blossom+Sword of Feast and Famine combo, but this deck isn't tutor heavy because it isn't designed to go for a combo. It's designed to get value and swing with your party.
I plan to keep this deck around the same budget, I originally built it with three fetch lands, but decided to switch out Blighted Woodland for Bloodstained Mire (since I was able to get one for a decent price on TCG player). I don't plan on adjusting the lands anymore any time soon (I'll probably get more fetches if the reprint next year drops their prices decently though). The creatures are pretty set as is currently, I may slightly adjust a creature or two down the rode if I decide I like an effect more than one I have. So overall, I expect the budget to stay the same.

You have more ways to tutor for basics than you have basics.
Fabled Passage, Evolving Wilds, Terramorphic Expanse, Ash Barrens, Blighted Woodland and two panoramas, plus Cultivate, Rampant Growth and Kodama's Reach... with only 6 basics. You may want to look into different ways to search for mana, or add more basics.
I also noticed a lot of lands that tap for colorless mana. You are playing a lot of spells with varied color requirements, you may want to change them into basic lands.

Here are some cards you might like: Beast Whisperer, Broodhatch Nantuko, Colossal Majesty, Deep Forest Hermit, Druid's Deliverance, Evolution Sage, Explore, Full Flowering, Gaea's Blessing, Garruk, Primal Hunter, Generous Stray, Giant Adephage, Gilt-Leaf Archdruid (pushing the budget, I know. Just thought I'd throw it out there),Hunter's Insight, Paragon of Eternal Wilds, Rampaging Baloths, Runic Armasaur, Sandwurm Convergence, Second Harvest, Selesnya Eulogist, Seton, Krosan Protector, Shapers' Sanctuary, Snake Umbra, Temur Sabertooth, Verdant Rebirth, Voice of Many.
Figured I'd give you a lot of different choices and you can pick through them for the ones you like.
What I would recommend you do with this deck is turn its focus into a cat and druid tribal deck that incorporates a lot of card draw and token generators along with populate effects. I feel it would bring a lot more synergy to your deck without increasing the price.
IF you ever wanted to break budget a little bit for this deck, I'd suggest maintaining the whole cat/druid/token themes and incorporating a little more of an enchantment focus with cards like Argothian Enchantress, Verduran Enchantress, Yavimaya Enchantress, Eidolon of Blossoms, and Setessan Champion. This would both boost your druid count a bit and your card draw significantly. These combined with enchantments like Beastmaster Ascension, Parallel Lives, Season of Growth and auras such as Keen Sense, and Sixth Sense, would net you a lot of value and power.
You might also consider cutting some of your lands like Blighted Woodland, Desert of the Indomitable, Slippery Karst, and maybe 1 or 2 forests, and adding in more ramp cards. I'd suggest maybe a Kodama's Reach and some artifact ramp like a Mind Stone, but I think you should focus most of your ramp on land auras like Wild Growth, Fertile Ground, Wolfwillow Haven, and Overgrowth. They'd be really nice if you ever decided to go down the Enchantress route.
I knooow this is long I'm sorry but I just see a lot of cool fun and potential in this deck of yours. :^) I tried to keep my recommendations budget but a few pricier choices might've slipped through. I hope this helps!

Blighted Woodland and Myriad Landscape probably would fit in here somewhere, offering lands that count as a ramp spell. Hall of Gemstone is probably handy to protect vs counters, maybe Defense Grid too? Depends on your meta if people run a lot of instants, because you've only got 10. Hall also neuters many 4 or 5 color decks, again meta issue.
