Three Visits and Nature's Lore are your 2 best in this category because the land enters untapped. Utopia Sprawl and Wild Growth are both excellent options. Selvala, Heart of the Wilds, Somberwald Sage, Shaman of Forgotten Ways, and plenty of other options that tap for multiple mana. Gaea's Touch is extremely underutilized in mono green.

Welcome to the RC doesn’t know how to make a ban list. There’s a number of videos on YouTube and podcasts that support that conclusion. There’s no reason Coalition Victory victory should be banned. There’s no reason Biorhythm should be banned when Shaman of Forgotten Ways exists. Prophet of Kruphix shouldn’t be banned for “warping the entire gameplay around it” when Dockside Extortionist does that now and has eluded bans.

The RC picks hills they are willing to die on to “prevent problematic play patterns”. They ban certain cards so that players see the type of card that leads to problematic play hoping players won’t play similar cards instead of banning the cards outright. Showcase bannings and rule 0 allow you and your play group to create the rules to the format you like.

What is your budget per card? Intended power level? Meta?

Godo, Bandit Warlord - Strong synergy with embercleave, not sure why cleave is here without Godo

Your deck needs a bit more ramp given it's Avg cmc is on the high end of Xenagos decks near 5. As such...

Somberwald Sage - Mana dork

Shaman of Forgotten Ways - Mana dork + potential wincon

Cultivate - Another Kodama's reach, the redundancy is needed in this build

Sakura-Tribe Elder - Blocking ramp

Wood Elves - Ramp that can fetch duals

Inferno Titan - Removal + Beater. Works on ETB which is nice given how people hold removal for Xenagos decks

Skyshroud Claim - Ramp that gets duals

Now onto draw. You have about 7 sources, most of them coming from burst draw which makes sense for a Xenagos deck. Not sure if you want to consider some other options to help you maintain gas in the late game. If you feel your draw lacking or rather as in most cases with Xenagos, hit or miss, you might want to try some of the following....

Harmonize - Simple yet effective. No need for creatures on board to fuel your draw or rely on unreliable combat damage

Momentous Fall - One of my favorite cards in Xenagos. While this works best in more ramp based, cheating in fatties deck, this can still pull it's weight if your meta is more casual (which seems to be the case based on your decklist). You use this in response to removal so your fatty can provide you benefits upon death. Do be wary of the blue player

Life's Legacy - Similar to above, but easier to cast, despite sorcerry speed, I have found this to be as useful if not more useful than the above.

Utility.....

Heroic Intervention - Prevent removal by making your board almost untouchable. Very useful

Decimate - 4 for 1, the value!

Berserk - Very fun! Use on Malignus, another big beater, or on an opponent's commander/creature attacking another opponent. Puts in some serious work for 1 green. Allows you to bluff for future interactions as well.

Deflecting Swat - SUCH a good card for Xenagos. Redirect their targetted removal, draw, extra turns and more! All for free? Sign me up!

I have some other ideas but I feel this should suffice for now. Be sure to let me know what you think of each suggestion.

Me: Hey play 5 dragons free yeah that's pretty good!
Me: [Reads more]
Me: Oh play every dragon in the deck!!
Me: [Reads more]
Me: So uh... with Terror of the Peaks then that's another 100+ damage on top? This deck is wild!!!

Looks super fun to play. You've even got Shaman of Forgotten Ways which I love in decks like this. If you see many counterspells emerge to combat this deck then a Vexing Shusher might come in handy.

Great build!

Wow it looks really good. Maybe include Shaman of Forgotten Ways. And a touch more removal. Maybe Vandalblast. Maybe Force of Vigor
