Sacrifice a land. Search your library for up to two basic land cards, put them onto the battlefield tapped. then shuffle your library.

There are lots of options to help fix your mana that have been printed, some of the handiest are those that can dig out a land, and lands that make more than 1 colour. Both are very useful, some effects can even dig out 2 or 3 colour lands, but these are pricier in most cases. Some budget options include Jund Panorama, Riveteers Overlook, Evolving Wilds, Terramorphic Expanse, Mountain Valley, and Rocky Tar Pit (the last two can find non-Basic lands, this includes Woodland Chasm, Highland Forest, Sulfurous Mire), Cinder Glade, Smoldering Marsh). Blighted Woodland can find other land types if you have Green already, Myriad Landscape can find Green (or another colour), finding Green is usually important because of cards like Cultivate, and Kodama's Reach, these ramp you but can also find you a needed land type. There are also even better options (arguably) like Farseek, Nature's Lore and the pricier Three Visits, these can find non-Basic lands, making them very useful. I always liked Harrow, it can find 2 different colours of land if it's helpful, there is also the lesser Roiling Regrowth. Since your Commander is at 5 mana, you might even include stuff like Skyshroud Claim or Circuitous Route, there are more but they aren't as popular due to costing 4 mana (you can get stuck on 2 or 3 lands).
A pair of random cards that might work for you are Midnight Reaper and Grim Haruspex, both draw cards whenever your creatures die, and cost very little mana. Another couple randomly useful creatures Dockside Chef, Skullport Merchant, and Mayhem Devil, which are certainly gotten pricier but is still extremely good.
Happy deck building!

Roiling Regrowth isn't actually an upgrade to Harrow because, while you don't have to sacrifice a land if it gets countered, the basic lands enter the battlefield tapped which is a much bigger drawback.

Perilous Forays: Definitely a card I need to slot in, I'm just wondering what it should be slot in for? There doesn't seem to be an easy answer, I'm wondered what your thoughts on it are.
Concordant Crossroads: Undoubtably a very powerful card, I'm just not sure if haste makes enough of a difference in this deck to justify slotting this in.
Crashing Drawbridge: If I am going to slot in haste, its going to be through Concordant Crossroads
Akroma's Memorial: Definitely an interesting suggestion and a possible card to help close out games. It being removed can be a problem though, and I'm wondering what would be swapped out for it
Null Brooch: Having lands into my graveyard is good, but its very hard to get useful creatures or spell backs from the graveyard and I'm not sure if my entire hand is a good trade for one noncreature spell
Stone-Seeder Hierophant: Definitely synergistic, but it works similar to Lotus Cobra, but slower
Animist's Awakening: A very risky card, its possible to hit almost nothing for a very large mana investment, cutting down on some risks has been a point of upgrading this list.
Kamahl's Druidic Vow: Same reasoning as above, but less likely to miss
Traverse the Outlands: Most of the time, it hits about 5-6, which is a decent 1-1 payoff, but it costs more than cards such as Roiling Regrowth and there are other cards I would rather play with 5 CMC
Boundless Realms: If a game goes long, you will probably have more cards on the field than you can search up with this. It's a powerful card, but it doesn't have the speed that this list runs.
Reshape the Earth: Powerful card, great for finding certain lands like Yavimaya, Cradle of Growth, or Lotus Vale, but it is just too expensive CMC wise.
Pir's Whim: I will find a land card, but not everyone else will have an artifact/enchantment to sacrifice, especially in my pod. Its good, don't get me wrong, but there are more efficient cards imo.
Dryad's Revival: This is simply Timeless Witness, but Witness has a body that cards such as Ashaya, Soul of the Wild can use, or that I can sac to Greater Good, etc

I love the card in Mono Black Coffers, it could be nice here too but maybe you should have more way to use it rather than just activate Door to Nothingness. What if it gets countered or destroyed? Also you might need some way to tutor it.
Also you could use fetch lands or Life from the Loam to get full advantage of Roiling Regrowth and Harrow. Maybe Azusa, Lost but Seeking could help you ramp too.
multimedia on Kalamax Instants

Hey, nice upgrades to the precon on a budget.
With Kalamax I find that instants that can give him evasion while also draw a card are excellent. It's the draw that's makes 1 mana and 2 mana spells like this busted with Kalamax. Kalamax is a great attacker to do real Commander damage if he has evasion.
- Shadow Rift --> Strength of the Tajuru
- Leap --> Lunar Frenzy
- Fists of Flame --> Trap Essence
Kalamax is a mana hungry Commander because to take advantage of his abilities you want to cast an instant on each player's turn and to do this consistently requires having a lot of mana. Consider more ramp?
- Relic of Legends --> Haldan, Avid Arcanist
- Storm-Kiln Artist --> Pako, Arcane Retriever
- Roiling Regrowth --> Essence Scatter
- Fellwar Stone --> Evolution Charm
- Joint Exploration --> Curse of Echoes
Relic of Legends is ramp and a source to tap Kalamax that makes mana. Storm-Kiln Artist is more magecraft, ramp with treasures. Roiling Regrowth is like Harrow except the basic lands ETB tapped. From the precon Haldan, Avid Arcanist + Pako, Arcane Retriever aren't needed, they belong in their own deck, with their own strategies.
Three, four or five color Precon manabases are subpar with too many basic lands which makes color fixing from lands quite poor. On a budget there's several land upgrades to consider, replacing not just some basic lands, but other lands that always ETB tapped for lands that don't?
- Holdout Settlement --> 1x Mountain
- Survivors' Encampment --> 1x Island
- Shivan Reef --> 1x Mountain
- Karplusan Forest --> 1x Island
- Rockfall Vale --> Rugged Highlands
- Vineglimmer Snarl --> Thornwood Falls
- Game Trail --> Gruul Turf
- Path of Ancestry --> Swiftwater Cliffs
Holdout Settlement and Survivors' Encampment can tap Kalamax to make mana. This is important since relying only on tapping Kalamax because you attacked can be problematic because what if Kalamax can't attack?
Good luck with your deck.

Any Fleshbag Marauder effects would be powerful. Harrow and Roiling Regrowth are great for ramp and suits your theme well. If money allows, The Ozolith and to a lesser extent Reyhan, Last of the Abzan would help preserve those counters.
Wildwood Scourge is an all-star in my Mowu, Loyal Companion deck. Speaking of doubling, Corpsejack Menace, Branching Evolution, and Hardened Scales to add more +1/+1 counters.
Hope this helps! :)

Decent concept, I think the card counts/options are a bit off though.
First of all, how do you activate Slayers' Stronghold? You should run a Boros Garrison. Cut Thragtusk add Sun Titan. Elvish Reclaimer, Springbloom Druid, and Roiling Regrowth are good ramp options in addition to going harder on Harrow to feed Brought Back. You should also go harder on Flagstones of Trokair.
Urza's Saga also gets you to Amulet of Vigor and makes a decent Brought Back target. I'd also go a lot lighter on Oblivion Stone. Maybe run something like Porphyry Nodes if you are that scared of aggro, since all of your creatures you want to stick around will be large.

Just taking a quick look, but Ashaya, Soul of the Wild would be a good card, turning any creature you cast into landfall. It also synergizes with any of those creatures that taps to untap two lands, like Argothian Elder and Ley Weaver.
It's clunky, but since your bodies tend to be larger, would Pyrohemia work in here? You can wipe out lots of blockers with 4 global damage, and anything blocking a 5/5 at that point will be at 9 damage. Also very clunky would be Berserkers' Onslaught for Double Strike on your 5/5s.
Myriad Landscape is very similar to a Roiling Regrowth effect (or Harrow), getting two landfall is pretty good, and instant speed is potential for interaction when you're making a pair of 5/5 bodies (or more, since you might have Titania out). Blighted Woodland is also a good source of double landfall from a land.
