Search your library for up to four land cards with different names and reveal them. An opponent chooses two of those cards. Put the chosen cards into your graveyard and the rest into your hand. Then shuffle your library.

Boseiju, Who Endures - Interaction that takes up a land slot
Cavern of Souls - Ensures your huge mana investment into eldrazi doesn't go to waste.
Field of the Dead - Zombies!
Gaea's Cradle - Even better with zombies!
Deserted Temple - Untap cradle
Thespian's Stage - Copy field, deserted, opposing utility land or even an eldrazi temple in a pinch
Petrified Field - Recur important utility land
Momentous Fall - More sac outlets! Draw more cards, gain some life, etc...Be aware though, that sacing is additional cost to cast so watch out for blue player
Mana Crypt - Ramp
Realms Uncharted - Tutor for Eye of Ugin, petrefied field and 2 other utility lands. Damned if they do, damned if they dont. Much better with land recursion effects such as crucible, Ramunap Excavator
More suggestions to come should you enjoy these.

Some more cards to consider:
1 month ago
First and foremost you want to find your land count. Players who prioritize a faster build utilize more mana dorks and a lower avg cmc tend to go as low as 38 or as high as low-mid 40's. For those who like to ramp into bigger spells and sacrifice speed for resiliency and late game, low - high 40's. Some players go 50 and above but I find that not needed. Azusa decks tend to cast their commander and then drop all their lands, run out of gas, top deck, play a big spell, have it removed/countered and just are in topdeck mode. You need to establish a good source of draw, whether it be burst or steady card draw, ideally, both. I will get to that later, if I don't (given I'm writing this late at night, please remind me). Also, please remind to mention utility lands, as Azusa decks have a large amount of wiggle room to utilize a landbase to solve difficult challenges. Depending on how you want to make your deck, fast and explosive or slower and more resilient, I can provide you better suggestions. For now, I'll go with the basics. I can suggest cuts in the next comment should you desire.
Sol Ring - Not needed in Azusa, but Turn 2 Azusa with this, into lands allows you to get the "quick" strategy you are looking for.
Mind's Eye - Draw, some people like Memory jar but I find this cheaper and more suitable, especially for your meta.
Greater Good - Extremely powerful sac outlet to prevent theft/exile, fill up your grave (with lands to recur for later, or whatever is appropriate at the time). Seriously, do not sleep on this or crucible of worlds
Sylvan Library - While double your budget, add this to the maybeboard for later as its very useful. It is synergy with Abundance (can outline the detailed synergy later, but its really good), shuffling effects (think fetchlands to shuffle away cards you don't want on top), as well as Course of Kruphix/Oracle of Muldaya effects. Best Turn 2 Azusa play IMO.
Momentous Fall - Used in response to removal, gain life and most importantly, draw cards.
Realms Uncharted - Works best once you get better utility lands. But it acts as a tutor, usually 4 fetches. That way, you fuel crucible of worlds. Bonus points if you add Petrefied Field.
Beast Within - Green's best removal, add this.
Boundless Realms > Reshape the Earth - Given you don't have enough utility lands, this is much better. Even if you did, reshape is very expensive for what it does, more so in this deck.
Pir's Whim - Politics removal and ramp in 1! Not needed but nice to have
Rishkar's Expertise - Best burst draw spell in green. While they can remove your greatest power creature, since it doesnt target, it goes to the next highest. It also helps mitigate tempo loss which is a big issue most draw spells have. Really powerful!
Regarding creatures, its personal preference. I have suggestions but until I know which direction you're going in, I'd rather wait. I personally love Eldrazi, specifically the Kozilek's as they allow you to refill your hand. Distortion allows you to be the blue player and Butcher allows you to, well, slaughter 4 permanents.

If this is a real deck, it's a great deck! But i have suggestions for some cards:

looks like you could use some discard outlets to win with gitrog monster. Wild Mongrel,Oblivion Crown, Noose Constrictor and Putrid Imp are the best ones. Also I recently switched from krosan grip to nature's claim and have seen good results. also the green gifts ungiven seems great in here. Realms Uncharted. also maybe it's time to look to some mana rock acceleration despite the flavor fail. Expedition Map at the very least feels like an auto include.

Thanks for the +1 and the awesome comment!
Field of the Dead - A fantastic card and while it is a bit out of budget, the main reason I don't play it is because it doesn't make elementals. Although, it will make the maybe board for my Omnath, Locus of Creation build.
Tempt of Discovery/Vengeance - My playgroup is pretty greedy when it comes to lands so usually they tutor, especially in the early game. And even though opponents usually don't choose tokens, it's still worth having for me alone.
Abundance - Funny enough I added this card two days ago, so I haven't had the chance to test it out yet unfortunately, so I'll have to find out.
Castle Garenbrig - More ramp, I like
Cryptic Caves - Wish I thought of this earlier, going in
Sol Ring - Again a great card that would improve the deck, but artifact ramp just isn't on theme.
Life from the Loam - Definitely an eventually addition.
Thanks again for checking out the deck!

+1 even though I'm not a huge fan of the deck due to my personal differences in regards to playstyle. That being said, the deck is definitely a solid piece of work and seems like it can put enemies on their toes if they are not careful. I can tell how much you care for your deck based on the time and effort you put on it. I hope you enjoy playing it for years to come!
Field of the Dead - Extra token production, works well with scapeshift. Is it out of budget?
Nylea's intervention - Works best in land matters decks, you don't have a lot of targets unless youre using it for it's 2nd mode which wasn't mentioned in the primer. There aren't many impactful lands in your deck that would require specific land tutors, rather, I would focus on just ramping harder to field with a spell of a similar CMC as you don't always have the luxury of having multiple land drops if you opponents are aware of your strategy. Speaking of opponents....
Tempt Discovery / Elemental - You mention in the primer that no1 wants to give you elementals, do people really want to give you lands? I'm curious how your meta plays it. With your commander, you still get your elementals even if they all tutor for strip mine (aka, my meta) and having the lands you tutored for in your grave to be later recurred with splendid reclmation or another recursion spell.
I know sylvan library is out of budget but seeing an abundance without a sylvan library is like selling your car for gas money :P But seriously, how has abundance played for you? EVERY time I use it I always choose the wrong mode, no matter what. It's never once worked. Every time I want lands I skip over a huge ramp or draw spell. Each time I choose non-land hoping for the aforementioned, I get nothing substantial. Just like gamble, I always toss the card I tutored for. Genuinely curious how you use it.
Blighted Woodland - Ramp which is better than GRUUL Turf IMO. Turn 1 Gruul Turf kills me
Castle Garenbrig - Ramp for om nom nath
Cryptic Caves - Draw , works well with crucible of world effects. Also, it's really good with Titania, Protector of Argoth.
Realms Uncharted - Tutor, I usually just get all fetches if I'm lazy.
Sol Ring - Ramp or not needed?
Life from the Loam > Sylvan Scrying - I don't think you need specific land tutors. Adding an additional, reuseable, form of recursion is helpful in maintaining land drops and getting back your lands. While the redundancy might not be needed here, it's worth mentioning.
Let me know what you think of each suggestion

Realms Uncharted could definitely work in here as well. Card advantage and a way to fill the yard with lands definitely seems viable for the build.
