I find that running Compost is often very profitable.

Epicurus we're in the commander subforum, so nobody will comment on its Modern or whatever power level.
Also, "removal, recursion, combo piece" excludes "value engine, card draw engine, ramp, stax piece, tutor, etc". Additionally, while probably the most popular way to play cEDH is with fast combo, there are many many decks that play the long game, switch between them, etc. It's a lot more varied than t2 wins from the turbonaus players.
Another point as to why Arena is bad is that there are TONS of cards that can draw you two or three or even more cards per rotation for only 2 maybe 3 mana. Verity Circle is INSANE in any meta that uses mana dorks. Compost and Insight are incredibly effective draw engines. Ghostly Pilferer is solid too. It's so easy to find a 2 or 3 mana card that draws you at least one card if not several each rotation that Arena is just a $20 version of what a hundred other $2 cards do, except worse.

Of course some people don't like tutors so maybe you won't take this direction, in which case wheels.
Wheels, however, mostly work when you can dump your hand. You need to be able to vomit yourself to about 2-3 cards in hand on turn one and then wheel either t1 or t2. This is easiest when you have rituals and high quality artifact ramp, or at least mana dorks. This could really force you into a higher power level, so weigh your options, I guess.

0rc ah yeah, I did miss the rogue-jank angle being incredibly effective. I've actually won several games with such a strategy myself.
I personally like playing high power with a budget, but I give my self a little larger budget as I dislike having to deal with tapped lands.
Might I suggest Compost , Verity Circle , and Insight as well? I've seen Circle just act as Rhystic Study against one or two green players, but I haven't tested the other two yet(they look amazing tho). Also, if you can find the budget, Root Maze is god tier when you're trying to use high budgets against people.
Also Yavimaya Coast , Sungrass Prairie and Skycloud Expanse might still be cheap enough. I also really like Hickory Woodlot , Saprazzan Skerry or Remote Farm if you can reliably flicker/proliferate, although that might not be on the menu here.
Quick edit: Compost and Insight look a little bit pricey for the $100.

First of all, your curve is high so you need way more mana acceleration, especially early game.
Here are some other suggestions:
Buried Ruin, Dread Statuary, Gavony Township, Tomb of the Spirit Dragon, Krosan Verge, Blighted Woodland, Canopy Vista, Scattered Groves, Castle Garenbrig, Bala Ged Recovery Flip instead of basic lands.

I'm afraid Compost won't work for this deck, as the Walkers are tokens, not cards.

Hi ChibiFate, thank you for the suggestions and questions.
Teferi, Master of Time didn't impress me enough to keep him in the deck. Once I could play him Turn 1 in a four player POD and he was insanely good. But if you draw him after turn four or five, you are better off drawing something like Pull from Tomorrow. The problem is, that it will get very hard to ultimate Teferi, Master of Time once your opponents have some creatures out and just filtering the cards in your hand isn't strong enough as you need extra cards to keep the interaction up as a control player. Hence, I would recommend some other cards that will guarantee you card-advantage in a timely manner without having to wait two to three turns. Therefore the short answer is: in opening hand the card is really broken. After a couple of turns he is "meh" - not really worth the mana.
Lithoform Engine is new to me and I never tested it, honestly. However, my first impression is that the card costs too much mana and does not provide enough synergy. If I could copy stuff from my opponents I would consider playing it. However, as this is not the case, I would rather tend to either put Precognition Field back in. But in my case it would make more sense to put Isochron Scepter combo back in as there are many spells I could imprint and copy much cheaper that way.
Oko, Thief of Crowns and Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath are really strong cards in this built. But you really need to up Oko, Thief of Crowns first until you get a token. Only after that I would advise to start attacking opponents permanents by taking over their creatures. If you consider to play Oko as a longterm threat and not as an immediate removal spell, then he will be very strong. Otherwise he will die pretty quickly and will not bring you continous advantage. If you have Oko, Thief of Crowns in your opening hand and can drop him on turn two, you will have quite a strong position in the game early on.
Hope these answers help you. If you read through the deck description you will see that this Rashmi deck is somewhat different from most builds and I try to grind especially hard.
