Other than that, reducing stax effects, like Eidolon of Rhetoric could lower the power level of your deck.
Also there are some cards I can think of that you could look at that would help lower the power level while still being fun and I would say powerful: Caustic Caterpillar, Vivien's Arkbow, Spore Frog, and Greenseeker.

Greetings MapPsycho I've worked on this deck tonight. I'm unsure about keeping the Elephant Grass + Scuttlemutt combination of abilities to protect me from an attacker designated as black. It is fairly situational and those two slots take away from the land gain, large creature theme.
These are the cards I have added thus far:
The cards I removed tentatively are: Buried Ruin, Blighted Woodland, Consign to Dust, Scattershot Archer, Crystal Chimes and Crashing Drawbridge. this last card I was reluctant to take out -- granting haste is such a fun surprise and option with big monsters entering the battlefield. Regardless, The cards I still am curious to add are: Yavimaya Elder, Traverse the Ulvenwald and Ram Through but I am uncertain what to remove. Should perhaps the above mentioned combo depart from the picture?
Thanks in advance if you have any time to evaluate.

multimedia Hey thank you so much! Yeah I've been doing lots of research on the deck and it is quite challenging to make it viable haha and I'm quite new to commander as well hence there are some factors that I'm overlooking.
Ah yes you are right about the lack of ramp - maybe because my playgroup is very casual and slow paced. Nevertheless, I followed your suggestions to add some the ramp cards and as well as replacing the lands.
And I also love the tutor cards you recommended! Crop Rotation is excellent way to "flash in" and become Monarch before your turn and Open the Armory is a good in fetching one of the key cards in the deck!
I have also have include cards that you recommended (Dromoka's Command for flexibility and Kami of False Hope as there can never be enough Spore Frog). I would love to add Sun Titan for its recursion on those important 3cmc or less cards but unfortunately I do not have the space for it :(
Once again, thank you for the helpful feedback and support! :)

Hey, nice version of Jared. I'm not a fan of Jared, but I can see you have put a lot of thought into your deck and you have overall very good card sense on a budget. Card draw shouldn't be a problem as long as you can keep the monarch :)
The manabase is lacking which is understandable because of the low budget. Cinder Glade and Canopy Vista are two of the better budget lands for Naya because they are two different land types, have interaction with lots of basic lands and they're Forest lands. Farseek, but also Nature's Lore, Three Visits (Commander Legends version), Skyshroud Claim and Wood Elves can all search for them and these five land ramp spells are among the best in Commander because they can ramp with a dual land. Some other good budget lands are: Battlefield Forge, Path of Ancestry and Naya Panorama.
Crop Rotation can tutor for Throne of the High City. Open the Armory can tutor for Pariah, Shield of the Oversoul or one of five equipment. Pariah is an important card to have more access too because you can't lose the monarch when Jared is enchanted with it.
Kami of False Hope is the white Spore Frog. Sun Titan is now less than $1 and is quite helpful since it can be repeatable reanimation: Jared, Pariah, Throne, Frog, Reckoner or any other 3 CMC/less permanent. Dromoka's Command is a good instant fight spell since it also gives another mode.
Cards to consider cutting:
- 1x Mountain
- Blossoming Sands
- Temple of Abandon
- Temple of Plenty
- Temple of Triumph
- Khalni Ambush Flip
- Migration Path
- Protector of the Crown: Archon and Regal are better six drop monarch enablers.
- Truefire Captain: difficult casting cost for this budget manabase.
- Blackblade Reforged: not needed since doesn't give evasion or protection and Jared will have huge power/toughness with counters.
Good luck with your deck.

I feel like I can never find a spot for fogs (Spore Frog aside) but I do think they're quite underrated in EDH. How many times have I needed one more turn to win? Lots. Would I have had a guaranteed fog in my hand if my deck runs one or two? Probably not, but I could have!

Spore Frog Is a problem in the muldrotha decks and the merrin decks

Hey thanks Omnicron13 for the suggestions. As it stands now, I honestly don't think the deck needs more draw power. It is very rare that I'm struggling to dig to my wincons. Also, Spore Frog is great but because I can only cast from the bin on my turn, I can only fog once every turn cycle. Additionaly, without the redundancy the frog would have to be my creature for turn. I cant tell you how many times I've been saved because I can threaten a fog every turn. I appreciate the input though!

I think that River Kelpie is a good card in this deck. I might take out the Constant Mists, as it’s all well and good to keep your planeswalkers protected, but with River Kelpie, you will draw into Spore Frog more often.
