This is a super fun little combo deck! But it can get shut down pretty easily. I'd suggest putting some key Commander pieces in that you're missing... and thankfully there's a TON of things that work with a land-based deck archetype like this in those colors.

First off, you need to complete your Cultivator combo with Splendid Reclamation for getting all those lands out of your own yard in a very big way (Cultivator probably becomes the biggest thing in your game at this point)!

Centaur Vinecrasher or Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar are superb alternate or additional beatsticks for Cultivator with tons of synergy with your commander that also dig themselves out of the graveyard after they get immediately removed like in my games!

Terravore is nice if you never hit Cultivator in your games (or it gets hated out).

Constant Mists basically you get eternal fog in a deck like this whenever you want if it doesn't get countered.

Entish Restoration, Dig Up, and Beseech the Queen for synergistic tutors.

Kagha, Shadow Archdruid, Elvish Reclaimer, Grisly Salvage, World Shaper, Circle of the Land Druid, Stinkweed Imp, Winding Way, Life from the Loam, Scapeshift, and Satyr Wayfinder for digging through the deck faster while also rotating lands. Life From the Loam is ESPECIALLY GOOD for its dredge ability in this deck so you can keep casting it. Scapeshift is the single most powerful cycler you could run but it's very $$$ and doesn't synergize completely with this deck (it's more for landfall decks, but it can still work with this too).

The utility lands Witch's Cottage, Mortuary Mire, Memorial to Folly can help get your creatures back out of the 'yard.

The utility lands Witch's Clinic, Rogue's Passage, Ghost Quarter, Strip Mine, Wasteland, Field of the Dead, Thespian's Stage, Restless Cottage, Boseiju, Who Endures, and Takenuma, Abandoned Mire would all help your deck's overall resilience and ability to deal with threats.

Either Abundance or Rishkar's Expertise could be a game-ending bomb for you. Rishkar's is great if your commander has enough power. You can draw a ton of your deck, likely hit a tutor you cast for free, then if your hand is flooded with lands you discard down to 7 putting all those lands in your 'yard making your commander even bigger! Abundance isn't as synergistic, but is basically a creature tutor spell for Cultivator Colossus if you decide to not run any other beaters or utility creatures.

Assassin's Trophy for instant-cast targeted removal of EVERYTHING.

Tear Asunder and Abrupt Decay are less-good Assassin's Trophy but at least Decay can't be countered.

Casualties of War for when you need to get rid of a lot of different pests that turn.

Return to Nature for instant-cast targeted removal of Enchantment/Artifact or Graveyard card.

Drown in Filth for a land-synergistic targeted removal that gets around indestructible.

Terror Tide for land-synergistic boardwipe that also gets around indestructible.

Nurgle's Conscription, Froghemoth, and Bojuka Bog for some enemy graveyard hate.

Rain of Filth for a MASSIVE spike in mana for that turn.

Worm Harvest for generating a TON of tokens off of the lands in your 'yard.

Titania, Protector of Argoth or Rampaging Baloths for much, much bigger tokens.

Gitrog, Horror of Zhava and The Gitrog Monster for super frog-land-pseudocycling synergy!

Brawn since you're putting things in your 'yard anyways you might as well give your commander and other beatsticks Trample for free! Trample has saved me so many times in games. No reason not to run it in this deck tbh.

Erinis, Gloom Stalker, Ayula's Influence, and Old Rutstein for more synergy with your commander's ability.

Life / Death for making an army out of your lands or pulling something out of your 'yard.

The planeswalkers Nissa of Shadowed Boughs and Vraska, Golgari Queen can give you alternate win-cons while also being synergistic with your commander.

If you don't need more combo stuff and just need another big beatstick alternate for the Colossus it's hard to go wrong with Yargle and Multani's power (plus the stained glass alt-art is sick!). But unfortunately it doesn't come with the cool yard recovery abilities of the other beatsticks I mentioned and doesn't have trample or evasion, but it does have more power than Emrakul!

Your decks extremely heavy for only having 21 lands. I'd recommend going up to 24. I'd take out Cabal Stronghold in order for you to even break even on it you'd have to have 4 swamps in play and your deck only has 6. I'd also take out any land that enters the battlefield tapped. As heavy as your deck is with no form of ramp you can't afford to be waiting for lands to untap just to make your opponent lose a life. So I'd take out Piranha Marsh I'd also take out Mortuary Mire.

As slow as your deck is I'd add cards like Thoughtseize Inquisition of Kozilek or Duress taking your opponents best cards early game will really help give you the time you need to set up. I'd also replace Victim of the night for either Fatal Push or Heartless Act hope this helps

I know they're not budget, but squeezing in Agadeem's Awakening  Flip, Tomb Fortress, Bala Ged Recovery  Flip, Takenuma, Abandoned Mire, Malakir Rebirth  Flip, and Journey to Eternity  Flip would be really good recursion as well.

There's also Haunted Fengraf but I don't think it's very good. Same with Havengul Laboratory  Flip. Witch's Cottage probably won't trigger often.

Mortuary Mire is... okay. Not great, but could be worth a slot. Certainly budget.

You could print off a Volrath's Stronghold!

I guess you could remove Mortuary Mire for it

I agree, the game mostly looses due to being one turn too slow, I'd say the crop rotation package is pretty broken - not just being fun. Some lands have severely underperformed tho, Mortuary Mire and Turntimber Grove seems good at a glance but are pretty awful and can be replaced, mainboard Bojuka Bog is probably very meta-dependent and questionable otherwise.

I'd prob. remove above mentioned cards and another Khalni Garden + another Sejiri Steppe

for lands the following are always a good in my experience.

  1. Yavimaya, Cradle of Growth and it is not to expensive at the moment.
  2. Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth is also always a good add for black mana but more expensive.
  3. Cabal Coffers pairs amazing with urborg
  4. Verdant Catacombs is a good grab right now before it starts going up in price.
  5. Boseiju, Who Endures is amazing in any deck running green.
  6. Takenuma, Abandoned Mire
  7. Overgrown Tomb
  8. Deathcap Glade
  9. Mortuary Mire
  10. Bojuka Bog

at least 10 ramp cards has always been recommended to me, some ideas:

  1. Arcane Signet
  2. Cultivate
  3. Nature's Lore
  4. Three Visits
  5. Nyx Lotus
  6. Farseek
  7. Kodama's Reach
  8. Skyshroud Claim
