Hey, now that you've changed to these partner Commanders instead of Radha consider replacing cards that were good with Radha with cards that are good with Rocks and good with the Bounce land combo?
Radha is a good attacker, Toggo isn't. Now you lack a good attacker from the Command Zone therefore some cards that help Radha attack or get benefits from attacking could be cut.
- Guildless Commons --> Skarrg, the Rage Pits
- Reckless Fireweaver --> Explorer's Scope
- Valakut Exploration --> Prowler's Helm
- Quicksmith Genius --> Unleash Fury
- Inspiring Statuary --> Rancor
- Heroic Intervention --> Sword of the Animist
Exploration and Quicksmith are draw engines with the Bounce land combo to find a win condition. Statuary turns Rocks into mana rocks for ramp.
Omnath, Ashaya, Quartzwood, Ulvenwald, Rampaging, Moraug, Thunderfoot, Multani is a large package of high CMC creatures. You don't really need any more then these because others aren't going to be as good for the mana cost and you also have 6 CMC Kodama. My advice is cut several 5 CMC or higher creatures for lower CMC support cards.
- Sol Ring --> Hydra Omnivore
- Ramunap Excavator --> Rampaging Brontodon
- Crop Rotation --> Hamletback Goliath
- Expedition Map --> Molimo, Maro-Sorcerer
- Tireless Tracker --> Kamahl, Fist of Krosa
- Eternal Witness --> Ghalta, Primal Hunger
- Scute Swarm --> Chandra's Ignition
- Valakut Awakening Flip --> Undergrowth Champion
- Bala Ged Recovery Flip --> Oran-Rief Hydra
Crop and Map are one drops that can tutor for a Bounce land for the combo. Excavator has interaction with DFC cards that have a land on the backside since you can play them land face up onto the battlefield from your graveyard. Wildborn, a Bounce land or Multani can then bounce the DFC back to your hand to cast the spell again.
Good luck with your deck.

Very nice. Just before I start talking about cuts and edits, I want to say that your land count is WAY too low. I usually play 35-36 lands, with about 5-10 other mana producers. Only CEDH decks run such a low land count, because they need to play fast with cards like Mana Crypt and such. Add more lands to the deck.
I will start with talking about cuts, because there are a few cards that I feel shouldn't be in the deck.
Jace, Wielder of Mysteries is known for being a wincon in CEDH and strategies that want to mill themselves out. However, it's not right here. There is no real upside to adding it to the deck, so this is an obvious cut.
Thirst for Knowledge: I'm not sure why you put this one here. It doesn't work well due to you having such a low artifact count. Also, it's only a one time card draw, which isn't too good in commander. I guess Chemister's Insight goes in this section as well.
Finale of Revelation can be a good card, but it's mainly used as an infinite mana sink. I would not recommend this in a deck that doesn't go infinite and focuses on creatures.
Nyx Weaver is getting worse and worse. It has gotten to the point where it's nigh unplayable. Cut.
Clone, despite being the original clone, is considered to be one of the worst. I would definitely cut this one out.
I know Nascent Metamorph is a fun card, but people overestimate what this card can do. Don't play it in any non-chaos build.
Mirror Shield? Just don't run it.
Ok, so those are the 10 cards I would cut. Now, adding cards is a bit harder. In my suggestions for the forum for this deck, I suggested a reanimator theme, but it looked like you didn't take it, so I won't add too many cards from reanimator strategies. Also, it looks like you are working on a "budget", so I won't suggest anything over ~$20.
Just a quick note; When people are making these clone strategies, they often forget to put enough creatures to copy. This is a common deck building mistake, but something that will cost you games.
As Jimmy showed in the latest "Game Knights" episode, Solemn Simulacrum is crazy in clone decks, and seconds as ramp and card draw.
Finally, speaking about ramp, Rampant Growth is still one of the best ramp cards in the game.
Now, you may have noticed I only suggested 5 cards when I cut 10, and that's because you need to raise your land count. Below are some budget but good lands you should work with. Also, try not to work with too many tap lands, as they slow your game down.
Zagoth Triome: A bit pricy but it's fetchable or can be used to dig through your deck.
Finally, I will recommend my favorite cycle of lands, the pain lands. Llanowar Wastes, Yavimaya Coast, and their more expensive sibling Underground River enter untapped and add any of the two mana you need.
Just cut some basics to add these lands in. But don't cut too many basics! You need about 12 basics at minimum in a casual deck!
If you want to look any further into the clones strategy, take a look at EDHREC's page for clone strategies. (https://edhrec.com/themes/clones)
I like how you chose some interesting cards I have never seen before, and this deck looks fun to play. I hope these suggestions were of some help to you.

I feel like we are wasting slots by putting a lot of eggs into it. If we keep hitting landdrops we gonna have artifacts to sacrifice either way. So I feel like it could be the right way to make sure to have as many recursive ways or loops in the deck as possible to keep that engine running, instead of one shot effects.
After Scaretiller, Druid and Cheetah, the next idea that I found is something like Myr Landshaper + Groundskeeper + a sacc outlet for lands, like Akki Avalanchers or Fault Riders, even though that is very convoluted :D But it actually keeps the entire deck running :D And two out of the 3 two-card combinations of the whole combination still does some work. If you only sacc lands to return and play them, its fine. If you only sacc artifact lands for a while its probably fine too :D

So, unfortunately I do have work today but I did 1 swap. Expedition Map in and Renegade Map out. We really want to start making rocks with our commander so fishing out Rakdos Carnarium is a big priority. Currently, I am mulling over potential combos we can dig to but I'll need more time.

Hey, nice first build of Teysa.
Reveillark + Karmic Guide + Teysa is a combo to exile all your opponents creatures because Teysa can sac herself and Lark/Guide are white creatures who can reanimate each other and Teysa. Lark + Guide + sac outlet is a combo to reanimate all the 2 or less power creatures in your graveyard which an aristocrat can be the win condition or Ayara or Gray Merchant of Asphodel. Buried Alive is very good at setting up Lark + Guide getting an aristocrat into your graveyard.
Hour is an important card and you're playing many other enchantments which makes Hall of Heliod's Generosity a helpful recursion effect. You're playing many utility lands which gives Expedition Map many choices thus I think it's worth adding. When your Commander is able to create 1/1 tokens it makes Skullclamp excellent repeatable draw.
Cards to consider cutting:
- Forsaken Sanctuary
- Apocalypse Demon
- Epicure of Blood
- Butcher of Malakir
- Price of Fame
- Norn's Annex
- Ancient Craving
Good luck with your deck.

Hi valentin74, sorry for the late reply. I moved my deck to moxfield [(https://www.moxfield.com/decks/RGKGxJ83YEOEaD8rYhNBBw)] and rarely check tappedout nowadays. Academy Rector is a nice card, but it's too expensive for me so I didn't want to buy it, but if I had one I would for sure play it like you suggested. Ophiomancer is cool, but Field of Souls is a combo piece and has more potential on those turns helping you go off and deal a ton of damage to your opponents with the drain effects. Expedition Map I would only add if you also play the Urborg+Coffers combo. Ancient Tomb and Caverns are budget excludes for my deck. Play them if you own them, same goes for Agadeem's Awakening Flip
