Profet93 Makes sense. Would you recommend Oracle of Mul Daya over Augur of Autumn, or do you think Augur is sufficient? I like the idea of being able to play creatures from the top of my library as well, but sense I'm making changes to my deck to increase land output, maybe Oracle is better? Bane of Progress could be interesting. Like you said, mana rocks tend to be common place in the EDH meta, so I'll certianly consider putting that one in.

If you're going to add the Titiania mentioned above, you might want to get the Yavimaya, Cradle of Growth as it also allows your nonbasics to tap for green. Not needed of course, but another $ card to add to the list for one day to acquire. Each small part/land makes the deck incrementally better. And when you add more land tutors + draw, you are more likely to make use of what you have.
Bane of Progress - Depends on how many artifacts/enchantments you end up with and your meta. But destroying opposing artifact ramp (and enchantments) are usually very devastating in most EDH metas.
Courser of Kruphix/Oracle of Mul Daya - Playing lands off of the top of the deck is like drawing and allows you to gas and smooth out your draws when you have nothing left to play. Not to mention the additional land drop from Oracle is crucial. Oracle is the best recommend out of all of the 4
Rampaging Baloths - Not really needed IMO but some people like it. I see you already have some token generation, might be worth considering. Especially given regal force and if you were to add shamanic revelation in the maybeboard. On that note, if you were, rude awakening would be really good with it.

Any reason you're not running The Gitrog Monster in here, it seems staggeringly synergistic unless I'm missing something? Another one to consider is Baba Lysaga, Night Witch, it's a tap ability, and you've usually got spare creature tokens and lands, add in some treasures or clues and you are going to draw a ton of cards. There is also Braids, Arisen Nightmare, hitting each opponent for a land can hurt some decks, especially if Braids can do it a few times, when you eventually get 3 cards for a land, it'll feel pretty good I think, but netting 2 opponent's worst land and getting a card back is also worth a land.
Maybe Thunderfoot Baloth or Blossoming Bogbeast? Maybe not enough 'bang for buck', but Siege Behemoth can let your Commander get in as if it's not blocked, do you often end up over 20 power?
Stuff like Sakura-Tribe Scout or Skyshroud Ranger can be useful in a landfall deck, especially if you've got some card draw going on. There are also a few more, Scaled Herbalist and Llanowar Scout that are pretty budget. Since you might not mind pitching a land to dig one out, Silverglade Pathfinder can ramp you if you pitch a card, slow but grindy value. Oracle of Mul Daya is pretty cheap at the moment, a decent card if you run enough lands, Augur of Autumn and your Commander will only need 1 other power to let you play creatures off the top of your deck, that seems solid.
It's pretty high end, but I feel like you'd struggle to add more passive value generation to this deck than with Field of the Dead, that card is just so much synergy. Another to consider might be Ashaya, Soul of the Wild, then all your creatures are also landfall (other than tokens).
Great deck, I hope some of these ideas work!
Ardees on Gates? Nine Fingers Keene Competitive

If you are aiming at 'competitive' in the technical sense of the term (as in 'cEDH' or 'competitive EDH'), like the title seems to suggest, I see many staples missing that unfortunately make the deck quite far from being competitive.
Artifacts: you should be running at least Mox Diamond, Chrome Mox, Mana Crypt, Sol Ring, Arcane Signet, Mana Vault, Jeweled Lotus, maybe even Grim Monolith and Lion's Eye Diamond.,
Tutors: you are missing Vampiric Tutor, Imperial Seal, and Worldly Tutor and Green Sun's Zenith if you run any combo, win, or strategy whatsoever based on creatures. You could also add Wishclaw Talisman and Solve the Equation, and, although not a tutor, Peer into the Abyss, which works quite nicely with Thought Vessel.
Lands: any competitive deck plays true duals, namely Underground Sea, Bayou, and Tropical Island. Same for shocklands and at least 6-7 fetchlands in a 3-color deck like this one. You could also consider lower the number of lands, depending on whether or not you want to keep the Gate strategy
Protection: any competitive deck that plays blue automatically plays top-end counterspells, namely Swan Song, Arcane Denial, Force of Will, Force of Negation, Pact of Negation, Fierce Guardianship, Mental Misstep, An Offer You Can't Refuse, and Flusterstorm. You are also missing key cards like Cyclonic Rift or Chain of Vapor. Needless to say, ideally a competitive deck playing blue also plays Timetwister: not a counterspell but a must card (yeah, the price is another topic of conversation).
Creatures: I understand the Gate theme but you are missing some high-value creature cards in here, most notably Dauthi Voidwalker, Malevolent Hermit Flip, Lotus Cobra, Azusa, Lost but Seeking, Tatyova, Benthic Druid, Ramunap Excavator, Dryad of the Ilysian Grove, Oracle of Mul Daya, Elvish Reclaimer - to name a few. Much depends on the strategy of your deck, although don't let keywords aligned with your strategy (e.g. 'Gate') fool you into thinking some cards are good for that.
Enchantments: a few staples in the current competitive meta: Rhystic Study, Mystic Remora, Sylvan Library, Burgeoning, Exploration, maybe Abundance and Necropotence
Removals: you could most definitely swap some of your removals for something better and more competitive, such as Force of Vigor, Nature's Claim, Abrupt Decay, Assassin's Trophy, and more.
Now, I totally understand there is a budget situation going on with upgrading to competitive MtG (spoiler alert: MtG is a pay-to-win type of game, research confirms), but generally the term 'competitive' sticks to decks that, to the very least, include most if not all cards mentioned above - without mentioning the fact that any competitive deck needs running at least one winning combo. At this stage, your level is more looking towards casual. This isn't to criticize you or anything of course, pretty interesting build, just not really a competitive deck in its strict sense.
If you want to try the competitive experience, my suggestion is to proxy cards by printing them online - this should cost around 10 bucks on colored and good quality paper, and effectively save you more than 7k worth of cards.

Request for public discussion: I know that Top Deck Matters is popular. My current concern is the scope of the hub. If a Commander deck has one Oracle of Mul Daya and a bunch of impulse draw, should that qualify? Maybe a better name is Top Deck Manipulation, but that's longer than I like, and excludes the Oracle of Mul Daya/Courser of Kruphix sort of cards.

New cards to consider: Historian's Boon, seems really good with saga manipulation and the sheer number of enchantments. The Phasing of Zhalfir, would require me to lose Jegantha, the Wellspring as companion, but is such a strong piece of removal with saga manipulation that it could be worth it.
Urza's Saga could be cut for either of the previous cards or potentially a card that helps my mana, like Courser of Kruphix, Dryad of the Ilysian Grove, Oracle of Mul Daya, Pir's Whim, Tempt with Discovery, etc.
