So I run a similar deck; Boar and Jackal it has a few differences, one of which is redundancy. My deck runs Champion of Rhonas as backup Ilharg, Vessel of Volatility as backup Generator Servant and Rhythm of the Wild as a backup haste granter/control hoser. You are all in on Ilharg and Generator, which is fine, but the Generator is really fragile.

I almost forgot one thing you could use to cheat out the Eldrazi, even though I'm rather positive it won't interest you.
There are cards that can instantly put creatures from your hand into play. I'll just list them instead of going one by one as they're almost the same thing, the only difference between each are their mana costs, colors and/or if they make you sacrifice the creature at the end of the turn.

Champion of Rhonas allows you to get the polyraptor out a lot earlier plus it can't be countered this way.
Then fling can interrupt your combo. by declaring that you use the combo say 1000 times before you fling, marauding raptor becomes a 2002/3 which then kills your opponent. Then even if that is stopped you have 1001 polyraptors in the way.

very cool deck, I build also my own version, but decide to take more of midrange/ramp approach. If you are interested here the link: https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/redgreen-combustible-gearhulk/
but there are some sub-optimal cards, that have a clear upside. Maybe check them out. Shock -> Wild Slash easy upgrade Silhana Wayfinder -> puts the card just on the top of the library, its not really a constructed card. with Once Upon a Time banned Bond of Flourishing or Seek the Wilds are very close.
Some suggestions from me: Paradise Druid -> i would go for the faster one like Llanowar Elves . so you can go Turn1: Llanowar Elves , Turn2: Rhythm of the Wild , Turn3: Champion of Rhonas -> drop a payoff. So you speed up your optimal gameplan by 1 turn.
Ashen Rider -> looks cute. but just works, if your plan A works and then you want go for a game ending play. i would just add castable cheap removal or sideboard it in for game 2/3. When you want go cute, then i would decide for Medomai the Ageless . the endless turns/attacks with Ilharg, the Raze-Boar is just winning on the spot, if your opp is not ready for it.

Another creature option to help cheat out big creatures that is a bit more budget conscious is Champion of Rhonas .

This looks pretty interesting. I'd consider leaning into an entirely colourless package with tron lands, and use Fist of Suns , but the bringers deserve to see the light. There are a lot of 'cheat big stuff' shells out there. Being reanimator is likely the strongest option, and I might try the dice archetype's mana package, to just make a ton of mana. Far from the most fun.
Pentad Prism is used to power out ad-nausiem, and artifact ramp cards offer options.
The unique thing about the big changeling is that he can abuse tribal cards. So go tinker with that.
