First off I have to say, definitely love the way you did the CSS/HTML scheme. Just have to +1 just for that!!!

I would love some pointers on how to do the same @[email protected]

But aside from that for some suggestions:

Oath of Teferi

Vampiric Tutor

Grasp of Fate

Primevals' Glorious Rebirth

Arena Rector

Teferi's Protection

Call the Gatewatch

Deploy the Gatewatch

Urza's Ruinous Blast

As Foretold

Hope that helps!

Suns_Champion I was thinking Elspeth, Sun's Champion for sure and Elspeth, Knight-Errant as well bc Elspeth is best waifu and tokens are great, especially since the only actually creature I'm running is Deepglow Skate and maybe even Arena Rector.

Interesting deck idea! A few comments:

So the Carrion Howler + Darksteel Plate combo won't work the way you think it will. Indestructibility doesn't stop a creature dying to state based effects (i.e. -1/-1 effects). However, you should still be able to continuously activate the Howler in response to its own ability. If you want the Howler to come back then a card like Gift of Immortality might be better. Though if you are only using the Plate as a way to keep the Howler alive until you are ready to go off then my comment is a moot point.

Platinum Angel or Phyrexian Unlife might be a decent safety net.

Near-Death Experience could be a hilarious alternate win-con.

Is the only purpose for Arena Rector to go get Aminatou? Unless I am missing something neither of those cards seem very synergistic with your deck. I feel cards like Erebos, God of the Dead, Damnable Pact, Idyllic Tutor, Bond of Agony, Greed, or even Heliod, God of the Sun (to gum up the board) might be better.

+1 and good luck with deckbuilding!

All things I am going to suggest are under $2 cards. If your looking for something in a higher budget let me know.

Add the following Lands. They will trigger Regna, the Redeemer the turn she comes into play.
Blighted Steppe
Scoured Barrens
Seraph Sanctuary
Springjack Pasture
Kabira Crossroads

Cards to get rid of:
Ajani's Pridemate and Child of Night They seem like they would work but they do not do enough
Arena Rector No really good planeswalker to find.
Bloodcrazed Hoplite, Knight of Malice, Oketra's Avenger, Typhoid Rats, Skittering Heartstopper, and Fate Unraveler Don't see how they fit in at all
Danitha Capashen, Paragon No Equipement but a decent creature.
Harvestguard Alseids Not running enough enchantments
Kazarov, Sengir Pureblood Not in your commander colors (has red)

Replace all of these creatures with creatures that do 1 of 4 things:
Produce a creature token
Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet from your side board

Gain you life
Pontiff of Blight, Syndic of Tithes, Tithe Drinker, Treasury Thrull, Soul Warden, Soul's Attendant, Sunscorch Regent, Suture Priest are all good examples. In multiplayer EDH extort good.

Create Mana
Burnished Hart. Crypt Ghast He is like $3.50 but he is really good in this deck Draw a card
Bloodgift Demon and Mentor of the Meek are good examples.

You should have all your instants and sorceries do some kind of board wipe or removal. The ones that are a one shot gain life just aren't good.

Your enchantments are good.

Artifacts should be replaced with mana rocks or mana reduction effects like Sol Ring, Commander's Sphere, Oketra's Monument, and Bontu's Monument.

Thanks for the update! While I find Estrid a bit too much effort to make her work (does almost nothing on her on; needs to be on the board for multiple turns to start generating value and a bad ultimate), I think Animatou can be pretty neat only for her minus ability. Flickering walkers in general can be really strong. Add in a Doubling Season, Deepglow Skate, Oath of Teferi etc. and the card can really escalate. Disadvantage is surely that her minus relies again heavily on what you can use it on and her other abilities are pretty weak. Due to being a planeswalker by nature and therefore less resilient than i.e. an enchantment you also usually want to play her the same turn you got something strong to flicker and cannot expect her to survive a round. Still,her potential to generate huge amounts of value is probably reason enough to run her. I will actually try to make room for her.

Arena Rector is another card I try to find a room for just to try it. I always have the scenario in my head that when I play him, the next player(s) destroys him, I search for a planeswalker and it again just gets removed by a simple attack before I even can use its abilities once. We usually also don't run any sac outlets and relying on a board wipe to activate him in our turn seems really awkward. He also competes with Atraxa on the 4 Mana slot. Maybe I'm overlooking something and undervalue him, but I have the feeling that if the other players on the tables know what they are doing they can deal with him easily without much effort. This makes me a bit sad cause where else would you use him if not in a superfriends list?

Ill look at each one and look for a better version of that card. Alpha Authority could be swapped for one of the sowrds.

Architect of the Untamed is too slow that could be a Emerald Medallion instead

Heron's Grace Champion is not that good here at all, i think Ambush Viper is better here. Surprise block and kill and ramp cause your cmdr

Hoofprints of the Stag is a really bad card in this deck. Not good here. Spirit Bonds would serve great as a replacement.

Myth Unbound will be a wasted card slot in this deck. Your cdr is indestructable. Its not going back to the command zone often enough , it could be Cathars' Crusade or Glimpse of Nature

Nantuko Cultivator would be a lot cooler if it was comboed with Splendid Reclamation, change it for Arena Rector.

Primitive Etchings not that good. Pair it up with Abundance it becomes really good. Eather take it out or add support for this card

Prowler's Helm could be one of the swords
