What about Seer's Sundial for card draw? Mind's Eye is better, but if you are overall lacking, this would help. You could consider Momentous Fall in addition to the Soul's Majesty you already have there. If you want to completely cycle, there is always The Great Aurora , but it's not really cost effective. One more option is Sensei's Divining Top .
If you wouldn't mind returning the favor and you are able, I would appreciate it.

Savra, Queen of the Golgari - Commander of the first EDH deck I built from scratch, which is still a formidable attrition style deck. Runs a convoluted, but very resilient, infinite combo as an emergency finisher.
Toshiro Umezawa - Commander of my highest-rated deck here on EDH, I've put a lot of time into making his list run smoothly and the primer I have here is the result.
Neheb, the Eternal
- Commander of my most fun deck. He makes so much mana, and can have unbelievably explosive games, finishing people off with almost nothing in play. My favorite moment with this deck was killing a player from 40 with the exert trigger of a
Moonlight Bargain - Such an amazing card, so underrated. Until it's recent release in a commander product, I'd never seen it played by anyone else.
Nissa Revane - The first planeswalker I pulled from a pack, and still my favorite planeswalker. Is she good? No. Do I care? No.
The Great Aurora - Why does no one run a mono-green board wipe? This thing is fantastic. Ramp a bunch, float some mana, cast this, then rebuild your board before anyone else gets a chance.
Archangel of Thune - Gotta represent my love of angels somehow, and this card is just a friggin' beast, easily one of my favorite cards. It's got it all - excellent art, good flavor text, and a game-ending ability. I've got a sweet stained-glass alter of one that looks absolutely amazing.
Permeating Mass - It's my dream to one day build a Permeating mass first strike deck, with the goal being creating a field of as many permeating masses as possible. Someday.

Yeah! I was thinking about using enchantment and artifact for draw and such. Because originally I was going to play Kaalia, but I think i like the KT boys better! I already have cards like The Immortal Sun , Vanquisher's Banner , Caged Sun and maybe even Oketra's Monument since most of the creature cards will be White. my favorite card in green is absolutely The Great Aurora , along with Praetor's Council. Im a white mage at heart so I love graveyard recursion or just protecting my stuff! (I like not having any cards in my graveyard LOL) I'll post my deck after I work on it

How does The Great Aurora work for you with this few lands? I don't see it being that good

@TheRedGoat Thanks for your suggestions and sorry for my bad englado.
The deck is built to draw a ton of cards and it pretty much always does. The only thing that can get in our way is, when we keep a starting hand without something for card draw, we don't draw anything similar and our creatures (which were to kill Grothama) will be removed. In this case a cheap early card draw spell like Life's Legacy or Hunter's Insight could be really useful. (When i built the deck, i was also considering those two but simply forgot to put them to the Maybeboard.
The Great Aurora - I've never seen this card before and I'm not quite sure if we need more lands on the battlefield, when we can already cast a 9 mana spell. The card draw is pretty sweet tho combined with Psychosis Crawler . (And you are right, the deck makes it easy to have a handsize of 20+ cards.)
Death's Presence - Could be pretty neat, but I'm not sure if I would cut antyhing for it.
I'd never suggest to play Grothama, All-Devouring just to have her on the board. Only play her, if you can make use of her ability in that turn or can protect her until your next turn.
Verdant Sun's Avatar - Personally I like the card, but I never felt needing it.
I can only recommend Grothama, All-Devouring if you like card draw and smashing face with big hitters. She definitely has a unique ability which you can't find on any other card in magic. Beside Barktooth Warbeard , Grothama is my favorite EDH deck.
