Kruphix, God of Horizons would let you bank mana from turn to turn.
Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury makes mana dorks.

I'd argue that I have enough ramp with Cultivate, Cryptolith Rite and Harvest Season, as well as Cream of the Crop for card filtering and a ton of card draw effects. But I will take those land recommendations. The only reason I had so many basics was I just couldn't think of what utility lands I could use to replace them.

Hey again. Nice I hope it goes well! So this is how I would try to describe it in simple terms:
First Yannik comes in and exiles a dude. Yannik#2 (e.g. a creature with a similar effect) drops by to exile Yannik, returning the dude. Then Yannik#3 comes in and exiles Yannik#2, returning Yannik, who in turn exiles Yannik#3, returning Yannik#2, who exiles Yannik, returning Yannik#3, and so on until you choose to stop (say by exiling the dude).
The deck runs pretty smooth. It could definitely use some mana engines, say Concordant Crossroads + Cryptolith Rite so that the loopers can generate mana. I don’t have a crossroads though and your build is all creatures right? I mention this need for mana because there are times where i can draw the whole deck but have to wait till next turn to try to win because I couldn’t cast crystalline crawler. And drawing your whole deck puts a big target on you haha. Good luck!

Alright, it's rhino time.
There are quite a few things I would recommend here.
First off, fourteen taplands!? Come on. Ghired deserves better than that! I'd either run more basics for the sake of your ramp or upgrade the nonbasics.
Part One - Things that cost too much to cast and/or don't do much:
Part Two - Just for any deck:
Can your deck generate green and red mana? Then play Decimate. Do it. It has literally never felt dead. It murders four things at the cost of one card. It is a bloody wrath. Furthermore, if you take from everybody you are less likely to be targeted. I once hit a Dimir Aqueduct, Conjurer's Closet, Phyrexian Arena, and Elesh Norn. Fifteen mana gone in an instant.
Once Upon a Time is a card I run in any green deck. It's great all the time.
Hero of Bladehold has come to murder everyone. She does her job.
Purphoros has come to murder everyone. He always does his job.
Given how few basics you run, Field of the Dead is a splendid inclusion. It's far better than it reads, and it reads of dint.
That's it! Farewell! CRUSH EVERYONE!
I have my own token deck here if you care to see it.

Bloom Tender/Incubation Druid/Ilysian Caryatid/Gyre Engineer all make infinite mana with Vigean Graftmage+Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy I would also run Cryptolith Rite since any creature can make infinite mana with Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy+Pemmin's Aura or Freed from the Real

Chakram Retriever seems good here. These could be decent too: Murkfiend Liege, Patron of the Orochi, Curse of Bounty, Cerulean Wisps, Biomancer's Familiar, Illusionist's Bracers, Spark Double, Sakashima the Impostor, Cryptolith Rite, Pili-Pala, Temur Sabertooth, Lightning Greaves, Springleaf Drum, Elvish Spirit Guide, Vizier of Tumbling Sands

Massacar hey! The price tag isn’t to scary as the whole deck exploded in price compared to the pre-con as you can see lol
I still have some games I get mana screwed but I’m going okay most of the times, I lowered my average cmc a lot to help combat that problem. My fears for Cryptolith Rite and Earthcraft on average I’ll be losing 4dmg to tap a rhino, lose a rhino if I tap ghired and my new rhinos come into play tapped. So I havnt gone that direction.

Personally I like Dryad of the Ilysian Grove more here than Azusa. I would also like to echo back an earlier suggestion of Cryptolith Rite, just to further allow some ramp and mana fixing with your tokens. Other possibilities if you aren't too worried about the price tag would be Earthcraft.
Do you feel like you always have the mana you need to play this deck?
