Cut down to 37 lands, I'd say. Probably...a Plains and a Forest?
You also need more removal. I'd recommend picking a few out of Swords to Plowshares, Path to Exile, Generous Gift, Beast Within, Chaos Warp, Nature's Chant, Return to Nature, Force of Vigor, Return to Dust. Those are single target creature/artifact/enchantment removal, mainly. You also need a bit of mass removal. I'd suggest something like Hour of Reckoning, Dusk / Dawn, Cleansing Nova, or Austere Command.

Hey, it's going to be difficult to improve on something if you start with the mindset of "I'm not good at it". If this is your first Commander deck then you are already good at deck building especially your card sense, decent mana curve and knowing mostly what's a playable land for your budget and not a playable one. Overall, well done with your casual version of Korvold :)
One drop mana dorks are nice with Korvold because they can be the fastest ramp and then be sac fodder when you don't need them: Birds of Paradise, Elves of Deep Shadow, Elvish Mystic, Wild Growth, Llanowar Elves. Tireless Tracker, Mystery Booster version is cheapest, is good with Korvold because it can be a repeatable source of permanents to sac (clues) just by playing lands. Clues can be a backup repeatable draw source if Korvold is disrupted. Dreadhorde Invasion, Jolrael, Mwonvuli Recluse, Loyal Apprentice are two drops that can be a repeatable source of a token to sac to Korvold.
Meren of Clan Nel Toth and Korvold are quite the pair. Every time you sac a creature to Korvold you get experience from Meren and use the experience at your end step to reanimate or recur a creature you saced. Sakura-Tribe Elder and Plaguecrafter are good examples of the best of both worlds since they can sac themselves for value. Jarad's Orders is a budget tutor that's nice with reanimation since you get two creatures, one into your hand, the other into your graveyard.
Some lands within the budget to consider adding: Llanowar Wastes, Karplusan Forest, Savage Lands, Ghost Quarter. If you add green one drop mana dorks then more dual lands that can ETB untapped turn one to make green are helpful. The Jund Tri land is a upgrade for a land that always ETB tapped. Quarter is nice since it can sac itself to destroy a problematic opponent land or even your own land in a pinch and can play it from grave with Ramunap Excavator.
If you're interested in any of these suggestions then I offer more advice about what cards to cut. Good luck with your deck.

Hey, nice update. I think you'll find that Korvold is an amazing Commander with sacrifice strategies.
Murderous Redcap and Putrid Goblin are other persist Goblins to combo with Grumgully and a sac outlet. Goblin Recruiter and Goblin Matron are tutors to get Goblins which is also nice with Dockside. Recruiter can setup the top of your library with Goblins to draw and assemble the Goblin combo with Korvold. Get Dockside first which makes mana with treasures to sac to draw with Korvold the rest of the Goblins and cast them.
Because you have Dockside then Temur Sabertooth can combo with it as long as Dockside makes five or more treasures then it can make infinite mana with treasures and bounce of Dockside with Sabertooth. This combo with Korvold draws into your deck letting you cast all cards in your deck or draw until you find Mayhem Devil as a win condition by sacing treasures.
Tireless Tracker, Mystery Booster version, is very good with Korvold as a repeatable source of permanents to sac just by playing a land. Sacing a clue with Korvold draws two cards and grows Korvold as well as Tracker. Without Korvold Tracker's clues can be a backup draw source.
A budget card that's overlooked with Korvold is Jolrael, Mwonvuli Recluse. On your turn if you draw a card with Korvold then you create a 2/2 Cat. She can be a repeatable source of Cats just by drawing a card which can be sac fodder for Korvold. She can also trigger on your opponents turns, if you draw two cards, which is good with clues and treasures with Korvold. Jolrael's activated ability can pump all your creatures especially Goblin tokens for a huge attack which can be a backup win condition with infinite mana from Dockside + Sabertooth without Korvold.

Peoni Thanks for the great suggestions. I definitely see some fun things going on with the druids like Gilt-Leaf Archdruid. I did also all the enchantments I was racking up and thought of adding some synergy there.
I see the biggest draw back to a lot of cards is Jolrael, Mwonvuli Recluse ability only triggering once per turn. So I am trying to find the proper balance to draw two cards with things like cycling to draw on everyone else's turn. So there are not many instant speed green draws or triggers that I have found yet. Your suggestion of Keen Sense did make me think of a combo with Squallmonger might be fun.
Still a work in process, but I think this will turn out fun.

Hey, nice budget version, good change to Korvold from Prossh.
Tireless Tracker, Mystery Card Booster version, may be out of budget range, but in my opinion it's the best casual value creature with Korvold. Repeatable source of creating permanents that can sac (Clues) just by playing a land. Clues can be a backup repeatable draw source if Korvold is disrupted. Awakening Zone was just reprinted in Double Masters. Eldrazi spawn tokens can sac themselves for colorless mana. Dreadhorde Invasion can be another repeatable source of a token to sac to Korvold.
One drop Bloodsoaked Champion has good interaction with Korvold as a repeatable creature to sac. Attack with Korvold sac Champion and since Korvold attacked you can reanimate Champion for . Reassembling Skeleton also does this, but you can reanimate Skeleton at any time.
Orcish Lumberjack is another one drop who can sac a Forest to make three mana. This interaction is very good with Korvold and Ramunap Excavator. Viscera Seer, Caustic Caterpillar and Spore Frog are other good one drops with Korvold because they can sac themselves. Seer can be a repeatable sac outlet that can also help to setup your draws with Korvold since you can scry before you draw.
Korvold's draw ability goes well with Jolrael, Mwonvuli Recluse and Mad Ratter since on your turn if you draw at least one card with Korvold then you make a Cat or two Rats. These creatures also trigger on opponents' turns if you draw two or more cards which is very possible since can sac at instant speed, good with Clues and Eldrazi spawns.
Some budget land upgrades to consider:
- Exotic Orchard > Bloodfell Caves
- Llanowar Wastes > Jungle Hollow
- Ash Barrens > 1x Mountain
- Dragonskull Summit > Shadowblood Ridge
- Rootbound Crag or Game Trail > Rugged Highlands
- Woodland Cemetery or Foreboding Ruins 1x Swamp
Good luck with your deck.

Looks neat. You might like these: Sword of the Paruns, Illusionist's Bracers (when equipped to Seton, all your druids will tap for 2 green), The Great Henge, Elvish Spirit Guide, Lotus Petal, Temur Sabertooth, Earthshaker Giant, Jolrael, Mwonvuli Recluse, Path of Discovery, Paradise Druid, Argothian Elder, Elvish Rejuvenator, Hidden Herbalists (seems good with Curio), Quirion Sentinel, Nylea, Keen-Eyed, Llanowar Visionary
