very good start but needs a little rounding out.
For landfall you need to be able to get more lands. Cultivate , Kodama's Reach or Rampant Growth those kind of things. Since you like creatures maybe Civic Wayfinder , Sakura-Tribe Scout or Llanowar Scout
But really like this casual feel +1 in my book :)
Have fun brewing!

You might be better off asking around at your LGS (assuming it has a facebook page or something).
Tappedout.net has bajillions of PDH decks, so people clearly play it. I for one adore it, have a PDH cube, and play it online all the time, but rarely at my LGS. But whether anyone in your area feels that way is probably much more relevant!
What you could try (what I've done) is build one of the value-focused pauper Commanders as a super-budget EDH deck. (I.e. it should be PDH legal, but intended to try to win EDH games). There aren't many good PDH commanders that are also legendary, but Tatyova, Benthic Druid is the most obvious example. She can do mad value even with 99 commons, with all-stars like Sakura-Tribe Scout . Some of the Commander Legends partners would work too, and pretty much anything with blue could be built as a control-combo wincon.

Btw, I found another combo while goldfishing: Aesi, Tyrant of Gyre Strait 1 / Tatyova, Benthic Druid + Retreat to Coralhelm + Sakura-Tribe Scout / Llanowar Scout + Abundance : Play a land, use Aesi or Tatyova to dig for another land with Abundance. Put down the land with either of the Scouts. Use Retreat to untap the Scout, find another land with Abundance, rinse and repeat to put all lands from your deck onto the battlefield. Use the final land to fail to flip a land with Abundance and stack your deck in any you want. This basically results in letting you tutor for any card from the deck every single turn.

Here are my picks for weakest cards, without much justification except that for the most part I don't see them doing anything important with Riku, too expensive for what they do, or are too specific:
Reshape the Earth
Pull from the Deep Volcanic Vision
Hazoret's Undying Fury
Decimate (since you need all legal targets, it can be awk to cascade into this one)
Amulet of Vigor
Wort, the Raidmother
Cast Through Time
However, I'll echo what another commenter said in that cascade doesn't interact with Riku all that much. I mean, you can copy the permanents or spells cast off of Cascade, but you can't meaningfully copy the Cascade cards. You could choose to cut the Cascade package instead. It's up to you and what you want to play.
So that's my first evil pass at 30 cuts. :)

Thoughts on these? Trophy Mage (finds Crucible), Stone-Seeder Hierophant (functions like Lotus Cobra, really good with Thawing Glaciers ), Animist's Awakening , Kamahl's Druidic Vow , Pentad Prism (in opening hand, gets Taty out T3), Elite Arcanist (can hold counterspells or win with Nexus), Isochron Scepter , Kaho, Minamo Historian (gives you options during opps' turns to counter something or use a tutor. Can go infinite with Nexus if you include Riptide Laboratory ), Realms Uncharted (instant, helps set up Sanctuary combo), Intuition (pretty versatile, could go for lands or EWit + Noxious + Temporal Mastery. and it's instant :O!) Littjara Mirrorlake (decent in your build as-is, can go infinite with EWit + Crucible if you include Time Warp ), Sakura-Tribe Scout (I'd slot this in over Oracle of Mul Daya since the effect is similar but Scout can get Taty out faster while Oracle can't), Ghostly Flicker (has neat utlity here. could be used defensively, to draw a couple cards, or as an infinite combo piece: EWit + Sanctuary + Time Warp)

I like cards like these with Damia since they get her out faster and help to empty your hand once she's out: Sakura-Tribe Scout, Skyshroud Ranger, Broken Bond, Swell of Growth, Azusa, Lost but Seeking. And they all feature ladies!
You might like these too: Alexi, Zephyr Mage, Diplomatic Escort, Silverglade Pathfinder, Go for the Throat (the promo art is also nice), Alluring Siren, Complicate, Fauna Shaman, Meren of Clan Nel Toth, Calming Verse, Song of Freyalise, Sheoldred, Whispering One
