why not throw a Lightning Bolt in there? Overall I love this deck. Long live goblins

You do it by adding a | symbol between the card name and whatever you are wanting to rename it as. The | is an up-shifted \ symbol on most keyboards. So, it'll look like this when you type it in:
[[Lightning Bolt|Shocky McFuntimes]]
It doesn't answer your question, nor does it fix anything, but it does give you the ability to modify card names if you so choose.
EDIT: I think it does actually answer your question, since you want to know if there is a way to format without it. So, yeah :)

Yeah... I know that feeling of selling cards I shouldn't have.
Since you are crazy enough to wanna hear my suggestions, then here I come. I have to say one thing before though. A sideboard is somewhere you can put cards to switch between matches to fix your deck's weak point. So, even if have one Garruk, absolutely mainboard him. That would make the deck more consistent. Having him in the sideboard doesn't help.
Mutiny is another card that just isn't good. It's too unreliable as it needs your opponent to have at the very least two creatures and one of them needs to be strong enough to kill the other, in which case you'll kill the weaker but will still need to deal with a strong creature. Kozilek's Return isn't budget friendly. However, it's a good boardwipe that doubles if you cast a big Eldrazi, clearing the way for an attack. If you strictly want a single target removal you could use Lightning Bolt , Wild Slash , Abrade or, if want to have as few colors as possible, Reality Shift .
Same goes for Spark Harvest . Too unreliabe and sacrificing the resources you'll need to accomplish your goal doesn't seem good. You can use Dismember instead as really few creatures can survive -5/-5 and you wouldn't need a black source anymore.
Hamletback Goliath is cute altough being nothing else. It's not bad per say, but offers nothing more than just a big body. No protection, no evasion, not even trample. Even if it becomes a 40/40 it can be blocked by a 1/1. Just as a comparison, Hamletback Goliath can be destroyed, bounced or exiled, but Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger can't be destroyed and Emrakul, the Aeons Torn has protection from an absurd amount of things while simultaneously having evasion. You're investing a lot of mana in those Eldrazi and they "pay you back" by impacting the board as soon as they come in and are rather resilient. Rather than the Goliath, you could use Emrakul's Hatcher , Beanstalk Giant , Oblivion Sower or even Drowner of Hope . Here's a more organized way to explain:
Emrakul's Hatcher - Not nearly as big and has no potential to grow, but helps you "ramp". Also is a red card, so makes you have to properly adjust your manabase accordingly.
Beanstalk Giant - Not as big, but can grow really big if go all in the ramp plan as it also helps you ramp by being a ramp spell.
I've been writing a lot. Feel free to agree or disagree with what I said. Just because I think something would be better it doesn't it will be better or that you should like it, after all, the deck is yours.
Also, if you could change the format to Casual it would help a lot. When writing these comment, TappedOut can directly show you cards I want to suggest. However, since the deck is labeled as Unknown format, anything I try to recommend ends up being recognized as illegal.

Dryad of the Ilysian Grove might be a nice body and help grow the zoo and perhaps putting in Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle could be easy late game Lightning Bolt to go upstairs/the opponent to finish off that last bit of needed damage?

I think I view this deck every time you cycle it lol.... do you have any thoughts about Dryad of the Ilysian Grove ? It can be a nice blocker and survives Lightning Bolt / Fatal Push ... costs 1 more though than Prismatic Omen but that extra land drop is pretty enticing.... I've got my eye on this card myself but haven't made up my mind.

As someone who has all three Omnaths built and sleeved, I think they're all super fun!
For a while I thought Omnath, Locus of Rage was my favorite. Then I felt Omnath, Locus of Mana was the king. Then after building Omnath, Locus of the Roil I thought I'd found my new favorite. Honestly although the newer two do have some overlapping synergies, you can have all three built and feel the flavors are different.
I did go a more budget friendly route with Omnath, Locus of the Roil and having a heavy elemental theme. I run the other two omnaths in the 99. I do also run the Deadeye Navigator / Palinchron combo for the insta-win
Mono G for me is straight beatdown
I'd say Omnath, Locus of the Roil is probably the "easy" commander, since you have removal and card advantage in the command zone. This is assuming you have the land base for 3c
Gruul is a good direction if you see a lot of boardwipes in your meta. The Lightning Bolt effect is nothing to scoff at. I occasionally win by crapping out tokens then using my own 'wipe to finish the table
Just my $0.02
