Creature — Beast
Landfall — Whenever a land enters the battlefield under your control, you may create a 4/4 green Beast creature token.

Finally, another 4c Omnath player!
Omnath, Locus of Creation is a fun commander that gives you access to the grand majority of all the landfall effects to ever come out in Magic. I will say, though, there are a few things you could add if you wanted to make this deck more competitive. Not sure if that was your plan or not, but here are some suggestions I would make:
Geode Rager can help keep your opponents off your back and swinging at each other, making it easier for you to win. As long as you have a couple landfall token generators out, it isn't too hard to win in a 1v1 situation with this commander.
Felidar Retreat + Kodama of the East Tree + Simic Growth Chamber is a combo that allows you to win the game with literal infinite landfall triggers and infinite tokens being created. You can sub out Simic Growth Chamber for any of the Ravnica bounce lands (of which you have access to 7 total in your colors, including Guildless Commons.) You can also swap out Felidar Retreat for any landfall token generator like Zendikar's Roil, Rampaging Baloths, heck, even Scute Swarm will work. You just need to create a token of some kind whenever a land enters the battlefield under your control.
Valakut Exploration is a great way to give yourself some temporary card advantage while also pinging your opponents for whatever you don't end up casting. Careful with this card, though, as if you don't cast whatever is exiled with it, you don't get it back.
Retreat to Coralhelm can let you tap down creatures you don't want attacking you or give you card selection via a ton of scry effects.
Nissa, Voice of Zendikar is a solid 3-drop walker that lets you get some chump blockers out early, pump any tokens you control, or gain a bunch of life and draw a bunch of cards.
Ancient Greenwarden is a solid effect. It lets you get your fetch lands out of your graveyard to find another land, easy two landfall triggers per turn with that. It also acts as a Panharmonicon for landfall, which is amazing in this deck. With just this, your commander, and a Myriad Landscape or Fabled Passage, you can gain 8 life and add 8 mana for free to your mana pool each turn.
Azusa, Lost but Seeking makes it so that you can consistently get three landfall triggers per turn with just a Ravnica bounce land in your hand. You may not grow the amount of lands in your deck, but it does allow you to get that 4 damage trigger off from your commander consistently.
Trench Behemoth is a solid value engine that lets you return lands to your hand to protect itself while also forcing a creature to attack whenever you get a landfall trigger. If you have enough tokens, you can take out their big threats if they decide to swing at you with it.
I love my Omnath deck, as I've had it since I pulled a foil version of him from a Zendikar Rising prerelease box. If you want other suggestions, I'm happy to help!

Alright, so. Right off the bat, sorry for this being a bit late, I thought I was gonna get to it the other day, and then I worked two 13 hour shifts in a row. But, im here now, so lets get started.
I can see that you chose to go more of a landfall route as apposed to the stompy route that I did. Respectable, I like it. However, I think that this deck struggles with some of the same things that my deck does, which is getting creatures through to hit face. It's why I have such a high priority on trample effects. Cards like Rhonas's Monument or Aggressive Mammoth are big hitters in my deck just because Ashaya, Soul of the Wild is often already around a 20/20, giving her trample is what brings it together to make her significantly more terrifying. Giant Ankheg is a favorite of mine for this purpose, it gives so much value.
A few big beaters I'm surprised you don't have are Ghalta, Primal Hunger because, lets be honest, shes basically a 12/12 trampler for 2, or cards like Worldspine Wurm or Moldgraf Monstrosity. Big, hard hitting creatures that you can easily power out pretty quickly. I would also consider Blackblade Reforged as a card, as it effectively doubles Ashaya's power and turns a scarily large creature into something terrifying.
Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar is a card that I really like in my deck. She's basically as big as Ashaya, so she is a good beaters, seeing as how she has trample, but personally, I prefer her in the gy. There are a bunch of sneaky ways to protect your creatures with Ashaya. I see you already have Quirion Ranger, but I suggest Multani as well as Scryb Ranger. Instead of protecting your creatures with Sylvan Safekeeper and having to sacrifice something else to do it, why not just bounce them to your hand and fizzle the effect? Then you get to play them out again and get another etb/landfall trigger for whatever you have on board that cares about that. This also works better against board wipes, as shroud doesn't help with that.
For landfall effects, Rampaging Baloths or Tireless Tracker are some cards I would consider, as they either make basically infinite 4/4s or they give you clues, which, after playing this deck a lot, that card advantage is very necessary, you can absolutely run out of cards very quickly. That's why I run Ulvenwald Mysteries and Rishkar's Expertise in my Ashaya deck. Ulvenwald gives you consistent clues and a chump blocker to boot, and Rishkar's, combined with Ashaya, or Multani or whoever else, draws you like, 20 cards and then lets you put something onto the battlefield.
For ramp/land effects you can go in a ton of different directions, what you do doesn't matter much, as everything is effective imo. I personally run Bootleggers' Stash and Zendikar Resurgent because you can ramp into them very quickly and they can both give you insane amounts of extra mana. Other cards like Augur of Autumn or Karametra's Acolyte are both good utility/ramp cards, as well as Stone-Seeder Hierophant.
Now, I really just have a few questions. Why are you running Yavimaya, Cradle of Growth? Isn't everything already a forest? That pick, I'm afraid I just don't understand, could you explain what I'm missing? And if you're going for a devotion style deck, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and Gaea's Cradle are both amazing lands. Granted, idk what your budget is and Gaea's Cradle isn't exactly cheap lmao. Another thing, why are you running 45 lands? I understand that there is a landfall theme, but that seems extreme even to me, most landfall decks I've seen run around 38. I would reduce your land count imo and invest those slots into artifacts and instants that either pair well with your deck, or that protect your creatures.

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.

Super glad for such a detailed list of suggestions, I'll try my best to go down each one and give you my thoughts on them.
Abundance/Sylvan Library: Between the two, I'm leaning more towards Sylvan Library due to the synergies you outlined, but I am seriously considering both of them. From what playtesting I have done, I have more than enough ramp effects, but I lack in card draw in order to power how many cards the deck can churn through. What do you think about replacing Lotus Cobra with Sylvan Library and Colossal Majesty with Abundance? Sylvan Library makes a better 2 drop than Lotus Cobra considering how much ramp I have and you already outlined the problems with Colossal Majesty.
Field of the Dead was not included because I don't think I have enough variety in my landbase to reliably activate it. Even if I change half my forests to snow covered, I only have 9 different lands, that's including Field of the Dead. I just have way too many fetches meant to get double landfall triggers for it to be reliable IMO. Unless I'm leaving fetches uncracked on the battlefield, I don't think I'm going to reliably be able to get much value out of it. I'm excited to hear your thoughts on that because I don't think it is entirely out of the question yet.
Castle Garenbrig: I already outlined out I have enough ramp and am thinking about cutting some for card draw, plus pretty much all of my lands are playing around a landfall trigger system where I am consistently saccing them and playing them out of my graveyard one way or another. Castle Garenbrig doesn't play into that strategy at all and I don't believe I need the ramp, I have a fairly low curve as it is.
Yavimaya Hollow: Definitely a card I was considering, but I ended up keeping it off the list not because of anything game mechanic wise, but just price. I already feel like this deck is quite possibly my most powerful deck and my playgroup is very casual, and relatively budgeted. As time goes on, this is absolutely be included as new cards come out and I keep this updated, but as of right now, I think I would feel bad showing up with a deck worth of 1k and playing against my friend who consistently makes decks worth less than $100.
Finale of Devastation: I honestly prefer Triumph of the Hordes in this deck, I don't usually need to make my creatures all that much bigger to win, I need the damage they deal to do more for me. Trample is something I prioritize in other decks for the finishing power and Triumph of the Hordes is no different, as well as the Infect making it a clear finishing card. I'm not entirely sure what I would even find with Finale of Devastation. Cultivator Colossus and Ancient Greenwarden/Rampaging Baloths are my highest CMC cards and none of them are real game closers, just big hitters that have powerful synergistic effects with my game plan.
I'm actually going to touch on Greater Good and Jaheira's Respite together: Jaheira's Respite is a risk vs reward card in my eyes, as it swings from being a dead card to pulling out 5, 8, 10+ lands in a single turn. This is one of the cards that I already own, so no need to buy it somewhere and I plan on doing some playtesting with it in a live environment. If it doesn't give enough reward for the risks it poses, it is going to be swapped out for Greater Good. I don't have all that many creatures I want to sac to Greater Good but you're correct, the elemental tokens fill a perfect role in that.
Hope this explains some of my positions on your suggestions and I'm looking forward to your own thoughts on my reasoning for the choices

I highly recommend moving Rampaging Baloths from the maybeboard to the main deck. If making tokens is the main gameplan, Baloths would be an all-star. You could also check out Ashaya, Soul of the Wild for more forest-synergy, too. Vernal Bloom is a pretty cheap forest mana doubler that would work really well with new Titania. Skyshroud Claim is basically a straight upgrade to Ranger's Path as the forests you grab do not come in tapped. Blighted Woodland and Fabled Passage are two nonbasic lands you might want to check out, too.
And then there's always Parallel Lives but that card is pretty expensive these days and STILL hasn't been reprinted...

Here are some cuts:
- Voracious Hydra
- Rampaging Baloths
- Thorn Mammoth
- Ranger's Path
- Skyshroud Claim
- Rune-Scarred Demon
- Beseech the Queen
- Diabolic Tutor
- God-Pharaoh's Statue
- Diabolic Revelation
- Dregs of Sorrow * I was a bit hesitant with this
Hope this helps!

I run a Yedore deck as well and I have a few ideas/suggestions for you to consider.
I think you should seriously consider adding Blasting Station. This card goes infinite with Yedora so easily as soon as you make your forest creatures, and it absolutely kills.
I would also suggest adding Scute Swarm, Sporemound, and/or Rampaging Baloths as ways to help flood your board with blockers/attackers. this allows you not to have to rely on your land creatures so much for either.
Wilderness Reclamation is another must for me, since it lets you not only use your lands every turn for instants and abilities BUT it also lets you reset after an attack.
