Stop the presses!
Public service announcement: infinite land ETBs available for the easy price of:
Stack the triggers so that the Bounce Land returns to hand, the token ETBs from the landfall trigger (from the Bounce Land), and then the Kodama trigger resolves from the token entering the battlefield (CMC 0) allowing you to put a CMC 0 permanent (the Bounce Land you returned to hand) onto the battlefield to start the loop again. The beauty is that this can be stopped at any time.
Unfortunately you can't gain infinite mana without an Amulet of Vigor or Lotus Cobra but this is a big step for the deck. Probably not the most timely seeing as this has probably been out in the open for a while now but it's a chance to look over the focus of the deck and possibly look at adding more tutor or creature tutor effects to try and bring out Kodama of the East Tree or potentially try to find ways to cheat it out as quickly as possible.
Things to be excited for:
- Infinite zombies with Field of the Dead + five other differently named land (not counting the field and the bounce land here of course),
- Infinite Scute Swarm,
- Ability to trigger Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle and infinite number of times w/ Prismatic Omen or Dryad of the Ilysian Grove,
- Dread Presence going bananas with Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth (moreso than usual),
- Dab hard with infinite clues from Tireless Tracker (not game winning, just to show off),
Things to be careful of though: Valakut Exploration may cause you to exile your entire deck if you go too deep, but you should be winning on the turn you go off, but don't go for it unless you have the mana to do it.
Either way, Kodama of the East Tree is making its way into this deck. Main thing will be finding the optimal strategy/timing to go off, and how much of a pain it will be to stack the triggers outside of paper magic. Protecting the Kodama will be key to the strategy.
Part of the power is the many ways you can find/play the bouncelands in this deck. I'm still not convinced Rakdos Carnarium is worth it because of the slow mana and colour fixing, two bouncelands should do with the number of tutors, but the question will be whether it is worth it for the MILL value, the chance that you might just flip it into the graveyard and play it from there to go off. Either way it will require some deep thought on how to best balance out this new horizon of potential for Lord Windgrace.

Ok so it's pretty hard to use an extra 3 man with riku to copy a creature so keeping the curve low seems important.

I'm playing a deck with possible infinite landfall combo's that has more pieces interacting with Retreat to Coralhelm, maybe not from turn 3, but still, redundancy is key in commander:
Lotus Cobra will help you make all the mana you need. Knight of the Reliquary + Retreat can put all your forests and plains into your graveyard for a big Splendid Reclamation. Tunneling Geopede / Spitfire Lagac will kill your opponents even if they'd play an Eldrazi Titan that shuffles back their graveyard. I'd also include a few ways to give haste to a creature, so you won't have to wait a turn before you can combo.
So the best tip I can give you with this combo: breach out to more colours than just Blue and White. Landfall decks just work best with Green included, because Green can get you a lot of lands into play, even when you're not going infinite. There's more landfall pieces in existence than alternatives to Retreat to Coralhelm, so that might improve the consistency of the deck, making it more enjoyable to play, even if you're having a hard time assembling the combo.
Unless you want to challenge yourself and make a Landfall deck without green. In that case I'm all for it and wish you the best of luck!

Evolution Sage & Magistrate's Scepter Infinite Turns
Lotus Cobra, Krark-Clan Ironworks Infinite Mana
Scute Swarm, Omnath, Locus of Rage, Nesting Dragon,Rampaging Baloths Infinite creatures to attach the rocks to
thats just some stuff i can think of off the top of my head

I'd cut pretty much all your creatures. If your trying to make this modern viable. There are just so many better options. Keep Azusa, Lost but Seeking Carnage Tyrant and Thrun, the Last Troll and Lotus Cobra. Primeval Titan is the best green creature in the game if you add in more instans and sorcery Delver of Secrets Flip is incredible

Both creatures aren't Sea-Cretures even though Risen Reef has a fitting name and artwork. But i noticed a lack of synergy because it only goes of with Zendikar's Roil as i counted only 3 other elementals. Parcelbeast could provide more value (Carddraw/Landfalltrigger). In the best case i can mutate it turn 2 onto Lotus Cobra or another smaller creature later. What do you think?

Kodama of the East Tree seems like it should be slotted in. With Omnath and Gruul Turf that's infinite tokens and with Lotus Cobra or Amulet of Vigor that's infinite mana (not that it's needed here but still nice). With a fetch to start the chain or Crop Rotation, you could do this all on someone's end step too. Seems like Hour of Promise should be a consideration too (to have another way to grab the bounce land and if you grab Field of the Dead with it you can make infinite zombies if for some reason Omnath is removed).
