This deck looks dope, great job. May I suggest Sensei's Divining Top or other ways to look at the top cards of your library? Also, See the Unwritten, Bow of Nylea and similar effects seem useful as redundancy for Mayael. Also, Zilortha, Strength Incarnate maybe as another fatty. Also, both Archetype of Endurance and Gargos, Vicious Watcher are useful to protect your creatures. Last, Siege Behemoth, Spellbreaker Behemoth, Spearbreaker Behemoth, Thunderfoot Baloth and Terastodon are very useful cards.
Finally, there's Zirda, the Dawnwaker as a little oddball to cheaper Mayael's activated ability.

Thanks for the suggestions, carpecanum!
I mention Mayael's Aria only because of nostalgia, I'm not particularly interested in trying to use it as a win-con. I know of cards like Mossbridge Troll that could work to win that way, but the first two modes (+1/+1 counters and gaining life) don't seem that impactful.
The creatures you mention are big, but I want my creatures to do more than just that. Especially without trample or evasion already tacked on, Primeval Protector and Gigantosaurus are not that exciting. I could see myself using Nessian Boar, though, since it can clear the way for other attackers.
Thanks for your thoughts :)

Might want to look into adding these cards for combat step potency. Berserkers' Onslaught, Aggravated Assault, Domri, Anarch of Bolas, Savage Ventmaw, Rampaging Baloths, Skarrgan Hellkite, End-Raze Forerunners, terrastodon, Kogla, the Titan Ape, Scourge of the Throne
And these cards for card-draw and mana ramp Beast Whisperer, Garruk's Uprising, Castle Garenbrig, Llanowar Elves, Temple of Abandon, Gruul Turf, Sheltered Thicket, Cragcrown Pathway Flip, Return of the Wildspeaker, Elvish Mystic, Hunter's Insight, Ilysian Caryatid, Guardian Project, Bonders' Enclave, Nylea, Keen-Eyed,Lifecrafter's Bestiary
And the cuts I were thinking of could be Vivien, Champion of the Wilds, Spearbreaker Behemoth, Giant Adephage, Spidersilk Armor, Mistcutter Hydra, Shifting Ceratops, Sunder Shaman, Voracious Hydra, Rhonas's Monument, Blood Mist
This are just my first initial thoughts on the deck.

At the moment, it looks like you basically have two different decks mashed into one. If you cut your 120 cards into two decks of 60, you'll essentially have double the options to play while improving the power level of both. The two main strategies I'm seeing here are Naya ramp/midrange and some sort of bird/flying tribal. I'll give some of my budget suggestions for both archetypes.
For Naya ramp, you definitely want to focus on the mana dorks like Birds of Paradise, Ilysian Caryatid, and Knotvine Mystic before using the extra mana to play your threats like Godsire, Titanic Ultimatum, and Atarka, World Render. Midrange will forego some of the lower and upper ends of the curve to play efficient midgame creatures like Retaliator Griffin, Managorger Hydra, and Llanowar Visionary. Some other ramp options include Voyaging Satyr, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Rampant Growth, Arbor Elf, and Utopia Sprawl. Some other bombs include Hornet Queen, Vigor, Archetype of Endurance, Terastodon, Armada Wurm, Gruul Ragebeast, Rakeclaw Gargantuan, Spearbreaker Behemoth, Woodfall Primus, and Warstorm Surge. Some midrange threats are Wild Nacatl, Woolly Thoctar, Spellbreaker Behemoth, Burning-Tree Emissary, and Bloodbraid Elf.
For birds, I'd definitely recommend swapping red out for blue. This lets you play flying buffs like Empyrean Eagle, Watcher of the Spheres, Skycat Sovereign, Jubilant Skybonder, Favorable Winds, Flurry of Wings, and Stolen by the Fae. Some options that stay in white are Sephara, Sky's Blade, Emeria Angel, Midnight Haunting, and Battle Screech. Some additional bird stuff could be Aven Mimeomancer, Pride of the Clouds, Wingmate Roc, Kangee, Aerie Keeper, Call, and Murmuring Mystic. These types of decks generally go as wide as possible, buff the team with anthem effects, and swing in the air for the win.
Cards I see in this deck that don't fit in either archetype are Ajani's Pridemate, Pyroceratops, End Hostilities, Planar Outburst, Star of Extinction, Giant Growth, Moonhold, Double Vision, Furor of the Bitten, and Darksteel Pendant. At least, those are the first that spring to mind as targets to replace first. Anyway, let me know if you have any questions about my suggestions and I wish you good luck with your build!

I think the weak link in your deck is probably Kalonian Behemoth. It's almost never going to be better than either baloth despite costing more. If you're looking for protection against removal, I've had fun with Whispersilk Cloak on Baloth Woodcrasher in the past. If you want another beast, Leatherback Baloth can come out on turn 2 and still draw a card with its 4 power late game. Spearbreaker Behemoth is another expensive option that offers protection to your largest threats.
More than that though, I'd want more ways to trigger landfall or take advantage of it. Harrow, Explosive Vegetation, New Frontiers, Oracle of Mul Daya, Courser of Kruphix, Dryad of the Ilysian Grove, Azusa, Lost but Seeking, Frontier Guide, Sakura-Tribe Scout, and Budoka Gardener Flip are all options for various budgets. The best include would probably just be fetchlands. The expensive ones are obviously better (ie: Fabled Passage and Prismatic Vista), but Evolving Wilds, Terramorphic Expanse, Myriad Landscape, and Field of Ruin are all fine choices for casual games.

Some creatures I think would be great but are pricy

Looks spicy enough, you may like also God-Eternal Rhonas, which can be a total blowout; End-Raze Forerunners is another piece that may add some oomph to close out a game, Xenagos, God of Revels is a total haymaker too.
For extra beats you may sprinkle some Kessig Wolf Run.
Cheekiest card ever, but quite difficult to retrieve is Seedtime.
I tried to keep my suggestions somewhat on a budget, if you want to aim high you can go for Heroic Intervention, Veil of Summer, Traverse the Outlands, Worldly Tutor, Green Sun's Zenith, Tooth and Nail, Craterhoof Behemoth (Best with Avenger of Zendikar!!!).
Have fun with Godzilla!
