Hey, well done upgrading the precon on a budget.
Some advice is to lower the mana curve by cutting several high CMC creatures (5 CMC or higher). Aesi, Meloku the Clouded Mirror , Tatyova, Benthic Druid , Rampaging Baloths , Avenger of Zendikar , Murkfiend Liege and Serpent of Yawning Depths are your best high CMC creatures.
An advantage that Aesi has is able to draw cards on your opponent's turns, if you can put a land onto the battlefield. Creatures who can tap to let you put a land from your hand onto the battlefield let you at instant speed do this effect thus you can do it during an opponent's turn. Simic Growth Chamber , Guildless Commons or Ghost Town can bounce themselves back to your hand. You can keep putting one of these lands onto the battlefield and draw with Aesi.
These are low CMC creatures who can first help to cast Aesi by putting lands from your hand onto the battlefield for ramp. Then when you control Aesi they're enablers with lands in your hand to draw cards. Because these creatures tap then they have great interaction with Retreat to Coralhelm and most with Murkfiend Liege . You can untap them, then potentially keep putting lands if you have in your hand onto the battlefield and drawing with Aesi.
Meloku the Clouded Mirror can be fuel to put lands into your hand to then put them onto the battlefield. If putting a land that ETB untapped then you can tap it for mana before you bounce it to pay for the activation to bounce it back to your hand.
These creatures can combo with Retreat to Coralhelm and if you're interested I can explain more in another comment. Good luck with your deck.

These are the incoming changes guys. Expect a fully fleshed out primer implementing all of these. Also, the Moxfield primer is just going to be a redirect to the T/O primer. (Sorry guys, keeping up with multiple primers is a giant pain in the ass and I got ton on my plate atm).
Eventually I'll re-port the whole updated primer back to Moxfield.
If want to discuss these changes with the whole Yeva community, myself included join our server:

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. :)
