Only if there is wording in the contract which permits this, or if the law in your state permits certain changes without mutual consent. Otherwise, by tampering with the contract your landlord may have voided the entire agreement. You should probably check with a real estate or civil attorney.

If it is signed by both parties it is a binding contract. The lessee can cancel, but may be subject to cancellation fees.

If the renewal is signed by only one party, it is not yet valid.

Can a landlord cancel the lease agreement after it has been signed by both parties and the deposit has been paid?

Most lease contracts have a clause that reserves the landlord's right to cancel the agreement if certain conditions are met. If you believe your contract does not support that right, then the landlord may be violating the terms of the agreement. The only way to know for sure is to study the contract, or hire the services of a lawyer to help interpret the contract.
