Alright, let's do this.

Good day to you, FacetiousFanboy. Now, I have a mere one lands-matter deck, whereupon 'tis the extent of my knowledge upon the strategy, but 'tis something I have meticulously tinkered for quite the meiny of years. Therefrom, I may offer my enlightenment.

Upon the very intrinsic parts, we have the categories of a commander deck: removal, wraths, card draw, ramp, lands, recursion, and engines. Being a legendary creature in the modern era of Magic, Mina and Denn grant a splendid engine from the command zone. Allow me to touch upon the basics within the decklist.

In order aforesaid, removal:

I mayn't have ever seen Relic Crush, but I do not like it. Five mana to kill two things is far too inefficient, thus I would recommend you take this out of the deck. Force of Vigor is better on most accounts.

Storm the Citadel requires you to have a board state, and requires a sorcery-speed deployment. Removal is best utilized in surprise, and being a sorcery negates such a factor. I do not like this card.

I would add Chaos Warp, for it hits any permanent at an efficient cost and at instant speed. One I much like is Hull Breach. Two-mana, two targets. It does not get much better than that.

Unto wraths:

I have noted a supreme lack of wraths. I have also noticed some inefficient X-spells for which you intend to use twelve or so mana. Try removing Banefire, Clan Defiance, Spitfire Lagac, Tunneling Geopede, and Living Twister. The pinging effects matter little until the opponents are sitting at seven life. Living Twister is one I have tried and disliked. Banefire and Clan Defiance hit the opponents' face, but do near to nothing in terms of furthering your board state. These are great when you are ahead, but you currently have no options for when you are behind.

Try Blasphemous Act, Chain Reaction, Molten Disaster, and Savage Twister. In the event of you finding one, do add Ezuri's Predation.

Upon card draw.

If you so desire X-spells to utilize, I would add Commune with Lava. It may be cast upon the endstep before your turn, and thus offers many more option without requiring you to tap out.

Escape to the Wilds offers a new hand and an additional land drop, whilst being a mere $0.25.

Well, Valakut Exploration has impressed me. It is essentially another Horn of Greed, which bears much dint. I would add these both for the endless engines they offer.

Similar yet potentially better, Tireless Tracker. Clues are fantastic, and are a splendid devotion of mana for use at any time. By this argument, I would kill Seer's Sundial. I have attempted the Sundial, but it requires a mana dump immediately as averse to any time.

Courser of Kruphix is just better than Grazing Gladehart. It may be half of the life gain, but the card draw off of the library's top is fantastic.

Outside of land-related draw engines, there are the basic ones of Outpost Siege, Elemental Bond, Guardian Project, and Harmonize.

Ramp, of course.

Notably, you are in Green, the very pinnacle of ramping. I would add the basics of Rampant Growth, Farseek, Harrow, Nature's Lore, Three Visits, Skyshroud Claim, and SOL RING.

As to what should be removed, Rootweaver Druid ramps you for one and an opponent for two. It could ramp you for two and your opponents for four. You always come out behind in this exchange, and thus I would see this fit for exclusion. Far Wanderings is great, but best if you have a full graveyard. This deck cannot achieve Threshold too easily, thence this effect may be improved.

Returning from the grave, recursion it shall be.

This is an optional field, but it is nice to have an option or two. I see but Seeds of Renewal. Seven mana for two things returned? I nill. Bala Ged Recovery  Flip serves as a land early and a win condition late. Eternal Witness is just always fantastic.

Start your engines.

What in heck is this Sporemound Nonsense? A five-mana 3/3 that spawns 1/1s. Quite lacking indeed. I do not see any justification for having this in the deck.

Crash of Rhinos is cute, but does not accelerate your gameplan by itself. Large, but not unbeatable. I am not fond of Akoum Hellkite myself, but it is better than others of what I would remove.

Primeval Bounty is always lovely, but not requisite. I believe it to be more powerful than current options in your deck.

Zendikar Resurgent doubles the mana and offers much card draw, winning the game once you untap. Beast Whisperer is similar, but an early-game card.

Given the number of tokens you create Purphoros will drain the opponents' life apace. In the same avenue, Evolutionary Leap can offer defense if someone attempts to kill a creature, or it can find a better use for your tokens.

Comet Storm is a far more efficient version of the X-spells you had opted to include, for it can remove problematic threats or multiple problematic players.

Unto finality, Genesis Wave can plop out most of your deck upon the table, and it is difficult to lose from there.

Conclusion.

Thus is the end of my babbling. Pardon the overlong comment, but I do hope it was of some aid.

I do have my own list, as forementioned, built around the lovely Hazezon Tamar. If you would so deign to peer upon its glory, that would be splendid.

The Lands Restored

Fare thee well.

I would cut Nimbus Swimmer Pearl Lake Ancient Tidal Kraken Naturalize (but for something better in the same roll), even Reclamation Sage Acidic Slime or Relic Crush. Aqueous Form can also go.

Force of Vigor would definitely be a good addition, and I think I went with Relic Crush over Krosan Grip for the multi-target (or to save $3). This deck hasn't been actively updated in a couple years (I think I added Anointed Procession to the maybeboard).

Suggestions:

-- Divine Intervention - replace with a full wipe, rather than something that lets your opponent keep their best creature.

-- Relic Crush - replace with Sylvan Reclamation - exile is better, and can be cycled for a land if running short.

-- Leonin Arbiter - with the amount of searching you do, I'd re-think the search denial, as it hinders your own searching for lands too.

-- Jedit Ojanen of Efrava is just... not the greatest. He's pretty lackluster.

-- Curse of Vitality is very minor lifegain.

-- Nissa's Pilgrimage could be replaced with Kodama's Reach or Skyshroud Claim

You have an awful lot of slow lands, that come in tapped. Canopy Vista is pretty much strictly better than a Guildgate.

--Move Mirari's Wake to the main board. You should always run that. Same with Swords to Plowshares which is strictly better than Condemn. Aura Shards should likewise go into the main deck.

Soul's Majesty should be replaced with Rishkar's Expertise - it's one mana more, but can't be countered by killing the target, and it lets you cast something in your hand (even if it's not one of the things you drew).

I find Hunter's Prowess is outclassed by its uncommon counterpart, Hunter's Insight - it lacks the +3/+3, but the instant speed means you can just choose any unblocked creature, your opponents not getting the ability to block the target more to deny you cards. Also, it's 2 mana cheaper.

I'd try to find a slot for Rancor - it's a recurring way to grant trample, and +2/0 for one mana is sweet.

Lightning Greaves has screwed you over so many times in our games. Consider Swiftfoot Boots instead? The two differences are it costs mana to equip, at the trade-off of you can still target the creature later on without opening a vulnerability window with re-equip/etc, or locking you out of targeting it if it's your only creature.

You may want to consider enchantments with mana doubling effects such as Zendikar Resurgent , Mirari's Wake . I also think hexproof creatures work best with an aura theme like Slippery Bogle , Silhana Ledgewalker , Sagu Mauler . Asceticism and Sterling Grove are also amazing for this deck. I would add more destruction like Crush Contraband or Return to Dust even Relic Crush . Reclamation Sage , Indrik Stomphowler , Acidic Slime . Maybe even Seal of Cleansing

Instead of Relic Crush you could use Return to Dust, does almost the same thing if it's on your turn, but maybe it's just me that prefers to exile something rather than to destroy something.

You could put an Adorned Pouncer or an Ajani's Pridemate insted of an Initiate's Companion.With the equipment sub-theme you could use a Leonin Abunas just for shit and giggles. Also, kind of situational, but Shamanic Revelation is usually better than Harmonize (Or use both).

Swords to Plowshares is never a bad option.

All of those cards are not that expensive and are really good, I guess.
