You dont like to swing... but what if you made other people swing at each other? Thantis, the Warweaver could be a thing for you.

I see your point about Liege of the Tangle. For example if someone plays a card with "return all creatures to hand", these land creatures would go to my hand (correct me if I'm wrong on that). I had paired Liege of the Tangle and Embodiment of Insight and since there are often board wipes in my groups meta I will probably eliminate these two cards.
As for Titania, Protector of Argoth, I have seen this card before and think it would do really well in this deck. This would be a great addition.
While the lands you suggested would pair really well with Titania, I'm not too keen on the pay one life part of the cost. There are a few decks in our meta that tick life totals quite a bit and this wouldn't help out with that. If I would add these lands it might be worth having Lifegift, I'm just not sure what to take out for them.
As for cards to take out, I know that Thantis, the Warweaver and Gyrus, walker of corpses don't do much for the landfall theme, so I was planning on taking them out. Also on this list were Bloodtracker, Worm Harvest and Soul of Innistrad.
I really just put in Etali, Primal Storm for the effect and the heavy hitting, I know he doesn't fit the landfall theme. He may be taken out for a different deck tho.
Thank you so much for the advice I really appreciate it!!

I don’t like Liege of the Tangle much, especially if your playgroup’s meta runs many boardwipes since the lands stay creatures as long as they have counters on them whether the liege is on the battlefield or not. Making a bunch of 8/8s is powerful for sure though, and if you can manage to only use untapped lands after casting him then it’s probably ok. Then at least you get your use out of him. I’m also on the fence about the Embodiment of Insight, but being able to swing with the above 8/8s and still use them for mana sounds great to me. The 3/3s from the landfall ability may not always be relevant, but still could have purpose.
I’d also suggest finding room for Ramunap Excavator for some redundancy with Crucible of Worlds, since you don’t always want to be using Windgrace’s minus ability to get lands back. Again, powerful ability, definitely use it, but being able to discard a land to draw two cards has been so useful for me.
Gitrog is awesome here, and as much as Omnath is expensive, he does work too. Since you’re using some fetches like Terramorphic Expanse and Jund Panorama I’d recommend Titania, Protector of Argoth too. She’s so good. Even better if you find the budget for cards like Wooded Foothills, Verdant Catacombs, Bloodstained Mire and the other six fetches you can legally run here. The more density of lands that sac themselves the better. Especially if you get Mina and Denn, Wildborn or Gitrog our with them.
Ok. So we’re looking for up to 6 slots for the four you wanted, and possibly the two I suggested. I’m first looking at your high cost cards since you’re adding a couple, and whatever else feels low impact. I’ll try to suggest more than 6 so you can think about their roles and how you see them fitting, cause this is your deck and how it plays is your fun, not mine.
Moldgraf Monstrosity recursion good; random bad, expensive bad, and if it gets exiled by not its ability;bad.
Charnelhoard Wurm; recursion of any card, really good; expensive bad, combat damage reliant, possibly bad.
Thantis, the Warweaver; flavour super cool, ability to speed up games; good, relevant to your decks plan, not really.
Rubblehulk is a huge body, for me his bloodrush ability is probably the most useful thing, otherwise there will be times he does nothing. The ability to get in for lethal off his bloodrush ability is real though.
Etali and Flameblast, not on theme but both super powerful. I like Etali better; that ability is so useful, a bit random but free spells are free spells. That being said flying is a real threat to this deck so having the dragon could be useful too.
Baloth Woodcrasher; just a beater, an on theme beater that could potentially be a really big trampler if you get a bunch of lands entering on the same turn, but nonetheless still just a beater. The multiple fetchland recursion is when I love playing windgrace the most though so I see the appeal. Crash of Rhino Beetles is kind of the same. Although a 15/15 is nothing to scoff at. Zendikar Incarnate fits here too.
Emissary of Grudges; it’s interesting and it’s ability is useful. It’s also late game and I don’t see how it contributes to your game plan. I could be wrong though.
Gyrus, Waker of Corpses is cool but might not be on theme. I’m not sure how often you need your creatures in your graveyard though.
There might be some more effective cards than Lavalanche (single target,) Retreat to Hagra (but deathtouch is nice, and the other ability could have some nice turns in corner cases,) and a few others but functionally I don’t have complaints about them.
Sorry for the wall of text, but I don’t like giving my input without the thought behind it.
Anyway, what do you think?

It wouldn't be too hard, it's just a matter of the die-hard Kamigawa fans out there that know O-Kagachi is probably the best they're going to get for their theme deck in the foreseeable future.
Once you decide to build a forced combat deck, King Kami has to compete with Gahiji, Honored One, Marisi, Breaker of the Coil, Thantis, the Warweaver, Basandra, Battle Seraph, Fumiko the Lowblood, and Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs. You'd have to have a real reason to be 5-color to not play one of those, instead.

Well I don’t generally do mockups or anything like that, but it’s not off the table. As for the initial concept, since we’re re dealing with original art here, is there a particular type of spider you prefer for the Thantis, the Warweaver alter? I was thinking something that puts emphasis on a web in the foreground that would be done in foil, with a spider dramatically perched on the web, or perhaps dangling from a thread above. There could also perhaps be weapons entrapped in the web as well?
The first thing that comes to mind, actually, is Shelob from Lord of the Rings. I could do a character alter like that if you like the idea.

Hey buddy. If you're still up for doing alters I'd like to talk about doing a Thantis, the Warweaver alter. I hate the card's art, but love the build I've got going. I'd want a completely different art, and would want to keep all the existing information boxes intact or at least readable.
I was wondering if you'd take cards for the work. I'd be willing to give you more value in cards than you would get in straight cash. Depends on if you have any high dollar cards on your wish list that I happen to have.
