I'd add 6 or so lands. There's just not near enough there. It also seems you're expecting a really long game with cards to reshuffle stuff into your library and gain life. You start at 40 health. If you're taking that much damage, the extra 5 here or there aren't saving you. And reshuffling cards from the graveyard into the library is only going to be useful if you're playing against a mill deck or you somehow draw your entire deck. Both somewhat uncommon situations.

Cards under $3 that you might consider:
Nature's Lore
Rishkar's Expertise
Rampant Growth
Kodama's Reach
Colossal Majesty
Return of the Wildspeaker
Beast Within
Nature's Claim
Thunderfoot Baloth
Rootweaver Druid
Reclamation Sage
Cathar Commando
Knight of Autumn
Qasali Pridemage
Thrashing Brontodon
Ranging Raptors
Regisaur Alpha
Shifting Ceratops
Territorial Hammerskull
Territorial Allosaurus
Topiary Stomper
Atzocan Seer
Tribal Forcemage
Naya Charm
Road of Return
Boros Charm

Cards that I would call easily expendable:
Looming Altisaur
Imperial Ceratops
Wilderness Reclamation
Verdant Haven
Gift of Paradise
Fertile Ground
Oketra's Last Mercy
Rolling Thunder
Serene Remembrance
Elixir of Immortality
Oketra's Monument
Alhammarret's Archive
Sanguine Sacrament
Slice in Twain
Enter the Unknown
Boros Signet
Gruul Signet
Selesnya Signet

Thanks! I will likely take out Slice in Twain for Return to Dust once I go threw my box of whites. Pretty sure I have another one somewhere. I left it in for now since it at least comes with a draw. Not so sure about Fecundity. Isn't that a bit of a double edged sword? I don't feel like helping others draw into an out for me. Also I just realized something yesterday during a match. I have very little to out powerful creature's with powerful ability's. I just got completely shut down by Stormtide Leviathan. Might need some more targeted destruction in here

Slice in Twain could be replaced with any number of better removal spells that are cheaper to cast. Like Wilt. Instead of Greater Good, you could run something like Fanatical Devotion or Martyr's Cause, which can double up in protecting a creature on your board, like your commander. You can even sneak a sac outlet into the mana base with a card like High Market. Goblin Bombardment is good, too. Demonmail Hauberk is sneaky useful here too. If you are sacrificing creatures a lot, Fecundity can draw you a ton of cards.

It seems to me that you could use some more eggs in this deck. Changlings are a good way to fill that void, and having more eggs will speed things up and fill your board up faster.

I like the creature package you have here, all very nice additions/compliments to Kalamax. The suggestions I have are just card upgrades, not sure if you are aiming for a budget but maybe consider these cards for the future.

Smelt isnt too bad, but I think you are lacking ways to protect your commander. Spell Pierce would fit nicely in this slot and is a bit more versatile than Smelt imo. Slice in Twain is kinda meh here. It doesn't give you a good enough payoff for the mana cost. Force of Vigor is a huge upgrade in this slot as it can wipe out 4 artifacts/enchantments for free. I also think you should run more ways to tap Kalamax. Survivors' Encampment is a nice one that can easily fit into your land base for something that comes into play tapped. A personal favorite of mine is Honor-Worn Shaku, I don't see many people running that one. A nice "surprise, I win card" is Berserk. Slap that on an attacking Kalamax at an opportune time and someone is out of the game. Consider that over Lightning Axe. Its much more efficient in this deck, but it still costs you two cards and it doesn't guarantee to kill two creatures. If Berserk isn't your thing, maybe consider Chaos Warp in this slot, it can deal with any problem on the board. +1, Cheers!

A few good card drawing options to consider: Masked Admirers, Viridian Revel (Slice in Twain instead of Return to Nature?), and my personal favorite Compost.

I think Sylvan Library should find a place in here as well. You always get to draw three, and if you don't have the life you can just put them back.
