Forgot to say what to take out for the three cards above: Green Sun's Twilight, Hull Breach, Lukka, Bound to Ruin. The Twilight is unrealiable until you spend a lot of mana into it. The Breach is sorcery-speed. The planeswalker does not do much here.

Now some small upgrades you can make:

Search for Tomorrow seems like a good fit. I've been pretty lucky pulling Arboreal Grazer most first turns so that always gives me immediate ramp but having more 1 mana options can't hurt.

Jaddi Offshoot is insane! I think I'm definitely adding that in asap. I feel like Courser of Kruphix is definitely a tighter strategy option than Gladeheart but I'm hesitant! In a couple of my games with this deck I've been doubling up life gain/damage with Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose + Sanguine Bond and gladehearts landfall effect have really been lifesavers. However ... I have top-carded with this deck a few times already and that sucks. Might toss out the 2 Chalice of Life  Flip for 2 of them and see how it goes!

Cool idea! I love landfall builds :) I have a couple of thoughts as you're continuing to build and test. I would consider adding in Search for Tomorrow. Being able to suspend it turn 1 is nice, and the land enetering untapped can be a huge boost. Sakura-Tribe Elder is also fantastic for landfall. It can chump block and be sacrificed before damage to get a land.

On the flashier side, Lotus Cobra could get out of hand with Khalni Heart Expedition and Harrow and help fuel your Clay Champions even more.

For the sideboard, I would run Courser of Kruphix over Grazing Gladehart. They have the same CMC, but Courser lets you play lands from the top of your library and is out of bolt range. The extra in its cost shouldn't be a problem because you're so heavily into green already. Also, take a look at Jaddi Offshoot as a one-drop life gain option.

I hope you find some of that useful! Good luck with the build!

If you're going to add the Titiania mentioned above, you might want to get the Yavimaya, Cradle of Growth as it also allows your nonbasics to tap for green. Not needed of course, but another $ card to add to the list for one day to acquire. Each small part/land makes the deck incrementally better. And when you add more land tutors + draw, you are more likely to make use of what you have.

Bane of Progress - Depends on how many artifacts/enchantments you end up with and your meta. But destroying opposing artifact ramp (and enchantments) are usually very devastating in most EDH metas.

Courser of Kruphix/Oracle of Mul Daya - Playing lands off of the top of the deck is like drawing and allows you to gas and smooth out your draws when you have nothing left to play. Not to mention the additional land drop from Oracle is crucial. Oracle is the best recommend out of all of the 4

Rampaging Baloths - Not really needed IMO but some people like it. I see you already have some token generation, might be worth considering. Especially given regal force and if you were to add shamanic revelation in the maybeboard. On that note, if you were, rude awakening would be really good with it.

I reverted back to Courser of Kruphix which competes very closely with Tireless Tracker for the same slot (I can never justify running both or multiple copies, it’s too clunky).

Being able to dig through your deck by playing lands synergizes well with a lot of strategies the deck has, and the 2/4 body is much preferred over the 3/2 initially.

The coincidental life gain and solid initial body help against aggro decks, while the card advantage and growing body (plus not broadcasting free info) are positioned better in more control oriented meta. Both are decent enough options, I just feel positioned well enough against control oriented decks already.

I’ll continue testing some of the newer cards, but initial play through weren’t as impressive as I was hoping.

Request for public discussion: I know that Top Deck Matters is popular. My current concern is the scope of the hub. If a Commander deck has one Oracle of Mul Daya and a bunch of impulse draw, should that qualify? Maybe a better name is Top Deck Manipulation, but that's longer than I like, and excludes the Oracle of Mul Daya/Courser of Kruphix sort of cards.

The Donate hub has been added.

New cards to consider: Historian's Boon, seems really good with saga manipulation and the sheer number of enchantments. The Phasing of Zhalfir, would require me to lose Jegantha, the Wellspring as companion, but is such a strong piece of removal with saga manipulation that it could be worth it.

Urza's Saga could be cut for either of the previous cards or potentially a card that helps my mana, like Courser of Kruphix, Dryad of the Ilysian Grove, Oracle of Mul Daya, Pir's Whim, Tempt with Discovery, etc.

Drellino thanks for the suggestions! I was actually running Courser of Kruphix, but didn't feel like it improved the speed of the deck, however you can run it for sure. However I absolutely agree, that there are too many 3-drops in this deck, so I thought about Fearless Fledgling instead of Territorial Scythecat. Concerning Felidar Retreat, I'll try it as finisher. It brings down the manacurve of the deck down a bit, so that's a big plus.
