king-saproling - Ah, a well-knowledged player!
When I reworked this deck, my goal was to make it rely less on the commander and thusly removed pieces such as Knight of New Alara and Lovisa Coldeyes, but there are some here I really like. I really only cast him with Evolutionary Leap, Purphoros, God of the Forge, or Gaea's Cradle.
I am not too fond of cards that merely ramp lands with X in the cost, especially if it may get not value. Animist's Awakening, though can be impressive, there is better I can do with my mana.
Lotus Cobra is one I own but isn't in here. It probably should be.
Stone-Seeder Hierophant is one I have never heard of, one of my avocations being perusing older sets for unseen gems. Though it can be powerful and is findable with Imperial Recruiter, it's ramp with summoning sickness on turn four, having but one toughness. Lotus Cobra seems more idoneous.
Avenger of Zendikar is quite literally perfect for this strategy. The only reasons I do not run it is because I do not enjoy having multiple of the same finisher across my decks and it's arguably a strictly better version of my commander. I couldn't do that to Hazezon. xD
Impact Tremors is more difficult to tutor version than Purphoros, whilst being far less impactful on its own.
This deck already has quite a few tutors, and it doesn't actually make that many tokens afore turn five. The value in Enlightened Tutor and Imperial Recruiter is that they can find setup pieces early due to the low cost and have value later. Oracle of Mul Daya early, Ulvenwald Hydra later. I am not too fond of the high cost of Chord of Calling here, also because the deck has a fair amount of tutoring as is.
I have also tested with Safe Haven, though it was just far too slow.
Divine Visitation can get out of hand very quickly, but I have it as a finisher in tokens. Best not to end the games the same way as other strategies, in my eyes at least.
I used to love Shields of Velis Vel. Oh, the blowouts it bestowed. I cut it when I made the deck less reliant on the commander, but I would love to use it again.
Walukut would be fun to include, though the lands slot is rather tight, and I refuse to remove Hammerheim. (It's never done anything. Not yet, anyway.)
Thank you for the comment. You obviously know the game well, and I'll have to look at some of your decks. :)

Cool deck! Thoughts on these? Genesis Wave, Animist's Awakening, Lotus Cobra, Stone-Seeder Hierophant, Avenger of Zendikar, Emeria Angel, Impact Tremors, Nature's Revolt, Chord of Calling, Green Sun's Zenith, Tempt with Discovery, Reap and Sow, Creeping Renaissance, Safe Haven, Divine Visitation (gets around Hazezon's downside), Shields of Velis Vel (this one is fun with Hazezon. If somebody plays removal on him, target an opp with Shields of Velis vel and Hazezon will exile all their creatures as he leaves).

I went with a battlecruiser/semi-voltron style Otrimi out of the precon but did design a Zaxara deck if I ever decide to build him as well, you can check it out here: X-emplary X-cost

Hydras and x-spells have always been an interest of mine, but I never truly found the correct commander - trying decks such as Kenrith, the Returned King and Rosheen Meanderer. Many of these cards can be seen as just "fun" cards, but, as with everyone, take with a grain of salt!
Kruphix, God of Horizons or Doubling Cube might be worth it. Also, mana doublers, such as Mana Reflection or Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger might be worth the slot. Animist's Awakening is interesting and on the x-spell theme.
Mind Grind for another win-con.
You could also include the Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth / Cabal Coffers package along with cards like Vesuva and Thespian's Stage for even bigger mana. Then you could include fetches for these cards, such as Tempt with Discovery, Hour of Promise, and Expedition Map, although sort of slow.
I don't really like Finale of Devastation or Green Sun's Zenith for Hydras, because whatever creature you get generally just dies when it enters the battlefield. The Talismans are cool, but pure, land-based ramp might be worth more in the long run, especially if you decide to add the cheaper mana doublers. The land base might be a bit overkill for a three color deck with access to green. In my experience, I can often get away with running more basics in sultai, but if it works, it works. Maybe Chromatic Lantern would help?
These are just my quick thoughts. Kind of sad that this commander doesn't have red. I haven't reviewed your recent edits, but I would like to hear more about what you are thinking.
