Amazing deck and presentation! Looks really pleasurable to pilot. I love all the synergies you've built between Haakon and Elenda.
Here comes a few suggestions I've in mind :
Bitterblossom > not the funniest card you could find, but it is a real powerhouse alongside Attrition , Anointed Procession , Skullclamp , Dictate of Erebos etc. / I was a bit surprised it wasn't included.
Bloodghast > same note.
Enduring Renewal > makes you a bit more vulnerable against control match-ups as they can see and play around what you're trying to do, but it has the potential of being extra spicy there - giving you a lift at building up your combos.
Academy Rector > absurdly good at tutoring some of your combos. Expensive (money speaking) nonetheless.
Forbidden Orchard > fuel for Elenda against creatureless decks. Taps for any color.
Grave Betrayal > greedy and expensive card that only works against decks running valuable creatures. Good fun, poor consistency.

I see what you are trying to do, and this deck should be reinforced with Whipflare , Mizzium Mortars , Electrickery and Pyroclasm in order to super buff your CMDR and have him deal lethal commander damage.
I think Devastating Dreams in here can ensure that no one will have any lands to respond to your giant CMDR. I highly recommend that you include more shroud/hexproof: Whispersilk Cloak , Lightning Greaves , Swiftfoot Boots and Glaring Spotlight .
Maybe Akroan Horse has a place here?
I know when first starting EDH, it is tempting to include every rare in your deck that you have. That shoudn't be the case here, things like Vanquisher's Banner Triskaidekaphobia , and Extractor Demon have little to no place here.
Good luck on this deck manifestation!

IAmTheWraith - the Spike in me says “find creatures that combo off one another for debilitating effects”, but my Johnny side decries the obvious answer.
Personally, I would try to mash Xantcha, Sleeper Agent or Akroan Horse with something particularly debilitating. That could be a painful ETB ability for Xantcha or a harmful ongoing effect for either.

@Boza Yeah, I think cards like Akroan Horse and Sleeper Agent were throwing me off. Both triggered abilities, both saying "you do X", and technically both work the same. But I guess if you Dominate a Sleeper Agent with the trigger on the stack your opponent still loses the life, not you. Some part of my brain gets its wires crossed when the creature still exists as its trigger is resolving.

I'm curious because Xantcha's wording is different from say, Akroan Horse. The Horse is a trigger that would kick it out of combat, but Xantcha is an "as enters" effect.

Nightmare will probably be an expensive 2/2 most games unfortunately.
Would your friend think shapeshifters are cheating? Or creatures with Horsemanship? Or Flanking?

We have had some cards, rarely however, that give some downside or sideways benefit of another person controlling your cards.
That is not the point of Indomitable.
And they really don't HAVE to print an opposing force to an ability in a set, they have just decided in the past few sets to theme the limited in such ways.

Yeah the main synergies I saw with the Sovereign was the potential to copy your own token makers (Akroan Horse would be hilarious) as well as other people's stuff that work well with Gahiji (the Primal Vigor variant is extra funny here). As usual the deck's current state is pretty tight so it's hard to point out what to replace with the Sovereign.
