Search your library for a basic land card, put that card onto the battlefield tapped, then shuffle your library.

I generally shy away from artifact ramp in green. There are several great 2 drop lands ramps (Rampant Growth), 3 drops like the ubiquitous Kodama's Reach, and a million decent 4 drops that grab two lands (with all the recent ones in the past 4ish years being Explosive Vegetation with upside).

I think this deck simply needs more mana, not just better mana. The average mana cost for this deck is well over 4.5, and 32 lands plus the Dragon Monuments won't be enough to support it. This deck wants at least 37-38 lands, if not more, and a bigger suite of ramp spells like Rampant Growth, Kodama's Reach, and Farseek will help speed you up as well. Five-color mana bases are hard to do on a budget; it's very easy to end up with the "fast/cheap/reliable: pick two" problem. If you add more ramp spells and Forests, that can go a long way toward smoothing your turn 4-5 mana base.
Try cutting some of the higher-end Dragons at 5+ mana. Go through each one, ask "Does this directly contribute to helping my deck win?" (or "Is this one of the coolest Dragons I have available?", if you're going for personal appeal), and take out anything that doesn't meet that standard of helping you win or personally appealing to you. And by "helping you win," it should do more than "be a Dragon." In the course of a typical game, would you expect it to help?
For a few specific examples:
How often does Intet, the Dreamer actually provide card advantage? If she effectively draws you multiple useful cards each game, she's worth keeping. If she regularly sits in your hand or graveyard waiting for "the right moment," cut her.
With only 25 combined instants and sorceries, how much weight does Backdraft Hellkite pull? How often does that ability get used productively?
So those are my thoughts--clear out some Dragons that are underperforming and replace them with lands and ramp spells. And above all, have fun!

I'd definitely add Ulvenwald Oddity
Flip -> 2 hasty 4/4 creatures that can also give haste to all your birds and beasts in the late game.
Indrik Stomphowler is a little overpriced but your deck lacks removal spells so I think this could work here.
Consider Anara, Wolvid Familiar and Esior, Wardwing Familiar. They are legenday so Tawnos won't copy them but they are reasonably costed and provide protection for your commander.
The last thing that I'd change is your ramp. You're in simic -> colour that has the best ramp in the game. I would cut all mana producing artifacts and instead play cards that put more lands onto the battlefield like Rampant Growth, Farseek, Nature's Lore, Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, Nissa's Pilgrimage, Skyshroud Claim, Explore, Growth Spiral, Joint Exploration or Broken Bond.
If you cut all the mana rocks for land ramp you can also run the new card Fade from History.

Soul of the Harvest, Fertilid, Mulldrifter and Shriekmaw are good budget elementals.
Wolfbriar Elemental is a nice mana sink in the late game.
Consider adding backgrounds like Master Chef or Scion of Halaster.
You are running Joint Exploration. Consider similar cards like Explore or Growth Spiral. They can let your deck gain some early velocity.
If you play multiple elementals with evoke then a card like Village Rites becomes useful because you can cast it in response to the evoke trigger and draw 2. Card like Evolutionary Leap could also be used in response to evoke trigger to draw a fresh elemental
Zendikar's Roil can let you go wide with elementals.
Tatyova, Steward of Tides makes your lands into 3/3/ elementals
Kenrith's Transformation is a great removal spell that replaces itself and can be recurred.
Tezzeret's Gambit draws 2 cards and proliferates.
Nissa, Voice of Zendikar puts counters on each creature for just 3 mana
Cards I would replace:
- cards with kicker and Vine Gecko (they are generally worse cards than regular budget ramp spells like Rampant Growth or Cultivate)
- 6 forests because you have low mana curve (I would cut the land count to something like 36 lands, but you could also swap them for dual lands with basic land types from Kaldheim - Woodland Chasm, Dominaria United - Haunted Mire, Temple cycle - Temple of Malady or bounce lands - Golgari Rot Farm
- Titania, Protector of Argoth because there is only one card -> Harrow that can proc her ability to make elementals
I would also cut some of the elementals that don't have any useful abilties like Jaddi Lifestrider, Healer of the Glade, Glade Watcher, Floodhound, Offalsnout, Smolder Initiate and Slitherwisp.
Hope you find some of the suggestions helpful.

In any case, I'm not taking the chance, so I'm going to sell my Rampant Growth asap lol

I don't know much of anything about the card market, so take my opinion with a grain of salt, but I feel like this might actually help some elements of the market, as it seems like it could be harder now for people to artificially inflate certain parts of the card market (such as Rampant Growth, which is currently sitting at around $80) on a whim.

As Kaheera costs 3 mana, you should add multiple MV1 ramp cards, so Llanowar Elves, Avacyn's Pilgrim etc. seem important. That way, you'll often be able to cast your commander on turn 2. Besides that, Rampant Growth, Edge of Autumn and Selesnya Signet are great cards. Cultivate and Kodama's Reach still are other powerful options in Mono-.
