This is theoretically possible, but it is VERY unlikely that with that set of cards you will get your "god hand" very often. I don't think Jadelight Ranger is a good fit. Yisan also is not a good fit. He would take far too long to tutor your big creatures. What you probably need to do is add more untap creatures besides the Arbor Elves and Voyaging Satyrs (4?), and more enchantment ramp (4?) to get consistency. What you're probably looking for in a tutor is Chord of Calling .
Are you really thinking of dropping that much $$ on a casual deck? If I were you, I would look for maybe one Super Expensive card ($10+) and look for the rest to be high impact cards that are cheaper ($1-5) range. X-cost spells would be good for that kind of ramp deck. I personally like Hydra Broodmaster or Pathrazer of Ulamog , although there are lots of other options. Could you let me know if you have any of the expensive cards?

Forerunner of the Heralds also seems sweet to get you any creature in the deck, plus it gets huge.
Also, I feel like Merrow Commerce is a must in this deck!
Cold-Eyed Selkie would be sweet in this deck and draw you a TON of cards.
Kiora's Follower Could be good too. Could untap a big Merfolk after you tap it for Kumena's abilty, or you could use it for politics, mana rock untapping, all sorts of cool interactions.
Surgespanner Would be pretty brutal with Kumena as well. You could tap it with Kumena, pay 1B and bounce a permanent.
You might try Quest for Renewal too, as it is everyone's upkeep you can activate your Commander again. Might be too fragile if there's a lot of enchantment removal in your meta though.
Tempest Caller is interesting too if you're going wide. Just 2BB and pretty much take someone out of the game.

Void Winnower's is a classic. Some of the other ones I've come across at some point:
Queen Marchesa - "The last ability of Queen Marchesa (long may she reign) checks to see if an opponent is the monarch as your upkeep begins. If no opponent is the monarch, Queen Marchesa’s (long may she reign) ability won’t trigger at all. Queen Marchesa’s (long may she reign) ability will also check to see if an opponent is the monarch as it tries to resolve. If no opponent is the monarch at that time, Queen Marchesa’s (long may she reign) ability will have no effect."
Demonic Pact - "Yes, if the fourth mode is the only one remaining, you must choose it. You read the whole contract, right?"
Jadelight Ranger - "If you reveal a nonland card the first time Jadelight Ranger explores and leave it on top of your library, you’ll reveal the same card the second time it explores. If you don’t pretend to be surprised, you’ll hurt Jadelight Ranger’s feelings."
Territorial Allosaurus - "Territorial Allosaurus’s ability can target another creature you control (such as a Dinosaur with an enrage ability). If you kicked it but your opponent controls no creatures that are legal targets, the ability must target another one of your creatures. Plan carefully before kicking Dinosaurs."
Persistent Petitioners - "The last ability of Persistent Petitioners lets you ignore the “four-of” rule. It doesn’t let you ignore format legality. For example, during a Ravnica Allegiance Limited event, you can’t add Persistent Petitioners from your personal collection, no matter how much they ask."
Lovestruck Beast - "If Lovestruck Beast’s power and toughness are reduced to 1/1, it learns that loving oneself is the first step on the true path to happiness, and it can attack even if you control no other 1/1 creatures."
And one borderline personal example:
Lion's Eye Diamond - "The ability is a mana ability, so it is activated and resolves as a mana ability, but it can only be activated at times when you can cast an instant. Yes, this is a bit weird."

I'd say that you either run Collected Company or Lead the Stampede, and Stampede looks like it works better here. Mostly because Stampede doesn't force you to change your deck, and it can grab monsters like Ghalta, Primal Hunger. And it costs less.
CoCo is best in multi-colored decks, especially with . Mostly because it gets access to a lot more 3-mana creatures and some great toolbox pieces.
On Aspect of Hydra and Walking Ballista, removal type cards always seem weird when playtesting. They often feel like empty cards, until you go up against someone else and actually need it. Now, it's entirely possible that they both suck here. It really depends on your preferred curve. However, I think you could still keep Ballista in either situation because it's removal, mana sink, decent sized creature, growable creature, perfect fit for your curve, and much much more. But it's really up to you.
Glad that the SB tips helped! Petitioner is so much better than Acolyte, the mana shave off helps a ton.
On Lovestruck Beast, it can be a decent blocker but there's probably some other decent beatstick for 3 in the format. Maybe Boon Satyr, Deathgorge Scavenger, Deathmist Raptor, Fairgrounds Trumpeter if you use it right, Jadelight Ranger, Kaheera, the Orphanguard(can also be your companion), Prowling Serpopard, Tireless Tracker, Wayward Swordtooth, or Witchstalker.

Swilliam I've actually considered Knight of Autumn before because of its flexibility, low mana cost, and aggressive stats, and I'll definitely keep it on my radar. I just worry that it would clash on the curve with Jadelight Ranger and I don't know if that's necessarily worth it. As for Gleam of Authority, I feel like it's more of a win more card. I used to run it in an older version of this deck, and it just ran slow and was often a dead card. As for High Sentinels of Arashin, I just think the cost and the activated ability feel more midrangey whereas this deck is lower on the curve. I cut Shalai, Voice of Plenty for a similar reason. Regardless, thanks for the comment and recommendations!

looks like a fun deck, you've got some good finds in here. If you're looking for more card suggestions still there's Seedborn Muse on the more expensive side, and Wake Thrasher, Lullmage Mentor, Kiora's Follower, Merrow Commerce, Cold-Eyed Selkie, Vorel of the Hull Clade Jadelight Ranger, Inspiring Call, Dramatic Reversal, Harvest Season, Curse of Bounty
