Just to help visibility.
You have way too many one-offs and very un-focused mana curve. You have to choose:
- A low manacost deck that focuses on producing tokens - Goblin Instigator is an exemplary card.
- A midrange deck with a token theme - Aryel, Knight of Windgrace is an exemplary card.
Playing both strategies means both are worse off.

Hey Kehrmann15, here are some thoughts about the deck, especially how to improve it with cards we already have in our playgroup.
Arvad the Cursed : In the current deck he probably has too few other Legendaries he can reliably pump. I would tend to replace him with a lord who pushes all the Knights. For example I could give you Benalish Marshal .
Kwende, Pride of Femeref : Similar to Arvad, there are very few targets at the moment. (Three Knights with Firststrike.) As a good replacement I could give you e.g. Aryel, Knight of Windgrace . Besides her respectable 4/4 vigilance (especially useful in multiplayer) she is a "mana sink", so she can use open mana even if you can't play hand cards. Specifically, she creates Knights tokens or destroys other creatures on each turn.
Belle of the Brawl and Skynight Vanguard would be shaky candidates for me, which could ideally be replaced by stronger Knights. Perfect would be for example Puresteel Paladin and Knight Exemplar . But both are not quite cheap and unfortunately I don't have them either.
Otherwise I'd rather go in the direction of 25 creatures, so maybe add two more value creatures. For example, I could give you the two: Kambal, Consul of Allocation fits well to your drain theme. Which you did to Neotopian and me last time. Sram, Senior Edificer lets you draw a card for each piece of equipment.
This brings us directly to the next topic.
Card Draw still seems to me to be the weakest point in the deck. Cards I can give you from my collection would be Read the Bones (e.g. as a replacement for Call the Cavalry , because you don't really play Go-Wide with the deck and hardly profit from it), Skullclamp and Sunforger (both equipment with which you have more synergies and absolute "must haves" in the deck). Especially Sunforger is crazy with your Commander, if you can fetch a CMC4 Instant for 2 mana and cast for free.
For the Sunforger to work properly, we need a few more instants with impact for <=CMC4.
Removal should be as versatile as possible ("target permanent" is better than "target creature") and as reliable as possible ("destroy" or even "exile" better than "x damage"). Therefore I would replace Integrity / Intervention by Utter End and Justice Strike by Swords to Plowshares (if any of us have it). Adamant Will is only good in special situations, so I would replace it with a good removal. I could give you Bedevil for example.
In order to have Sunforger or other cards on hand at the right time, a few tutors would be helpful. For example, I could give you Diabolic Tutor from my collection. Open the Armory would also be a cheap tutor who fits well to your topic.
I'm not finished on the other topics yet, but here are my first notes on equipment, mana rocks and lands:
Find a few stronger pieces of equipment to replace the following:
No Taplands without upside (Gates etc.). If we don't find better duals (e.g. the scry temples would offer a nice upside) replace them with basics.

I'd cut 1 of the boardwipes and Sorin. I really don't like Always Watching either. other than you really need to cut from mostly artifacts I'd say. 30 is too much. I would focus on quality over quantity on the equipment, especially with Gwen's ability. I have some adds even though you need cuts. Hero of Bladehold Mirran Crusader and Knight of the White Orchid seem like the three biggest Knight's you are missing. Aryel, Knight of Windgrace and Olivia, Mobilized for War also seems better than a lot of the knights you have. I also run Night's Whisper and Read the Bones as a staple in black, especially without green

I was pondering this the other day, with Morophon, the Boundless coming out I thought why not? They show up in all 5 colors, every tribal buff can be relevant if you are using changelings, plus some of them are just plain cute.
In the same vein as your Dragon Tempest you should look at Sarkhan Unbroken . His ult would be super beneficial... same with the original Nissa Revane ult. And if you like the not dragon but they are dragons theme you could also run the partners Khorvath Brightflame and Sylvia Brightspear
Im not sure how to build it just yet but I feel like it could be a lot of fun.
