Finally, another 4c Omnath player!
Omnath, Locus of Creation is a fun commander that gives you access to the grand majority of all the landfall effects to ever come out in Magic. I will say, though, there are a few things you could add if you wanted to make this deck more competitive. Not sure if that was your plan or not, but here are some suggestions I would make:
Geode Rager can help keep your opponents off your back and swinging at each other, making it easier for you to win. As long as you have a couple landfall token generators out, it isn't too hard to win in a 1v1 situation with this commander.
Felidar Retreat + Kodama of the East Tree + Simic Growth Chamber is a combo that allows you to win the game with literal infinite landfall triggers and infinite tokens being created. You can sub out Simic Growth Chamber for any of the Ravnica bounce lands (of which you have access to 7 total in your colors, including Guildless Commons.) You can also swap out Felidar Retreat for any landfall token generator like Zendikar's Roil, Rampaging Baloths, heck, even Scute Swarm will work. You just need to create a token of some kind whenever a land enters the battlefield under your control.
Valakut Exploration is a great way to give yourself some temporary card advantage while also pinging your opponents for whatever you don't end up casting. Careful with this card, though, as if you don't cast whatever is exiled with it, you don't get it back.
Retreat to Coralhelm can let you tap down creatures you don't want attacking you or give you card selection via a ton of scry effects.
Nissa, Voice of Zendikar is a solid 3-drop walker that lets you get some chump blockers out early, pump any tokens you control, or gain a bunch of life and draw a bunch of cards.
Ancient Greenwarden is a solid effect. It lets you get your fetch lands out of your graveyard to find another land, easy two landfall triggers per turn with that. It also acts as a Panharmonicon for landfall, which is amazing in this deck. With just this, your commander, and a Myriad Landscape or Fabled Passage, you can gain 8 life and add 8 mana for free to your mana pool each turn.
Azusa, Lost but Seeking makes it so that you can consistently get three landfall triggers per turn with just a Ravnica bounce land in your hand. You may not grow the amount of lands in your deck, but it does allow you to get that 4 damage trigger off from your commander consistently.
Trench Behemoth is a solid value engine that lets you return lands to your hand to protect itself while also forcing a creature to attack whenever you get a landfall trigger. If you have enough tokens, you can take out their big threats if they decide to swing at you with it.
I love my Omnath deck, as I've had it since I pulled a foil version of him from a Zendikar Rising prerelease box. If you want other suggestions, I'm happy to help!

I'd cut: Rush of Knowledge - there are much better draw spells, even when you generally have your general as a 4cmc land out. Frantic Search - I don't think this is worth playing unless you care about the discard. Elvish Piper - there are better cards like Monster Manual now. Displacement Wave - potentially alright with how high cmc your stuff is? But it is kind of inefficient and works against your mana artifacts. Generally I think you want to replace more of your ramp with land fetches like Rampant Growth over the mana rocks.
I'm not sure about the small instant-speed subtheme you have going with Rewind and Unwind and just general high-amount of instants. You've got a lot of high cmc leviathans which I think would tend to lead to you playing more sorcery speed. Might be easier to have lower cost interaction over expensive interaction that untaps.
Also agree on all of Lynn's cuts.

You are not wrong about gyruda tbh, but considering you already have mill going on, I just thought it was a neat addition. Also Trench Behemoth is a super cheap (money wise) and a super annoying to remove creature. While you aint gonna trigger more than once that landfall in dimir, getting rid of those Blood Artist of the evil aristocrat players is delightful. And cloning it seems really nutty.

i think you could get some use out of some of the better Moonfolk that return a land to your hand, combined with things that you have like Ayula's Influence. Meloku the Clouded Mirror and Uyo, Silent Prophet are probably the best but a couple other cool ones are Soratami Mirror-Mage and Soratami Savant. some other useful tricks to return lands to your hands are Vapor Snare, Deprive and Tragic Lesson. Trench Behemoth could also be an alternate win condition along the same vein. a few other land discard cards are Trade Routes and Compulsive Research. Greenseeker would also be very useful here. sweet deck overall and probably not room to add all of this but a few more tweaks could really make this shine.

Thoughts on these? Heartstone, Dizzy Spell (finds amulet or training grounds), Cosima, God of the Voyage Flip, Trench Behemoth, Flooded Shoreline, Icebreaker Kraken, Kefnet the Mindful, Copy Artifact (copy amulet to get an extra mana out of every land), Mirrormade, Sculpting Steel, Illusionist's Bracers, Gauntlet of Power, Seer's Sundial, Vedalken AEthermage, Step Through, Terrain Generator

Then again the recent Trench Behemoth is quite squid-y so w/e ¯I_(ツ)_I¯
(hopefully no Tidal Kraken reprint at least)

Meloku the Clouded Mirror would be a great addition to any deck running the Behemoth Engine or any landfall engine.
I have a note in the description about the great Moonfolk cards you can also put together with this. I also linked my Moonfolk commander deck if people want to see other ways to work the Trench Behemoth into their moonfolk commander decks or Moonfolk options for a dedicated Behemoth Engine deck.
