@TrillMill I still play the deck, but I've found that if you can't keep atraxa out the deck struggles. As Foretold will help you keep her out. Cloning abilities are important since most horrors are nonlegends and because people will be playing stronger creatures in the late game.
I have found that the utility horrors such as the lieges, Spellskite, Thing in the Ice Flip and even Metallic Mimic always are large factors in how well I do in a game. If you can copy the lieges, then Atraxa almost turns into a voltron commander. Anyway good luck brewing and feel free to leave a link to your list for me to take a look at.

I love the idea of this deck! I'm testing frenetically right now. Thank you for posting this!
My two cents:
I don't like Cancel in this deck. For a counter it's too slow. On the draw you need something to counter threats like Steel Leaf Champion, Thrashing Brontodon. I think Censor or Essence Scatter would be better, not sure which yet though. 4+ res creatures it's really hard to deal with this deck, that's why I suggested Abrade, Censor and Essence Scatter because I don't think Hour of Devastation alone is enough to deal with them.
I never reached Ascend, so I think replace Secrets of the Golden City for more Champion of Wits would be better because Champion of Wits can chump block in times of need and the Eternalize is really a powerful effect that can help find the combo to finish the match. And if you discard a Instant/Sorcery you can take it back with The Mirari Conjecture anyways.
I don't know if I losing something here, but I found As Foretold useless in this deck. On the play it's too slow and on the draw you lose much tempo and almost never recover.
About the sideboard, I don't know... maybe a Baral, Chief of Compliance against control decks? I didn't test against control decks yet.

Sphere of Safety/As Foretold are cards I've tested before and I think that tokens are more than enough to hold the fort. SoS is also 5cmc, and is usually too clunky and competes with my other 5cmc walkers. As foretold is too slow and often eats removal before I can capitalize on it.

Hi, i am building my own superfriends deck right now i really like the version you have decided to go with, with minimum creatures and use tokens as blockers :) I was wondering if you might give your thougths on some planeswalkers/cards you haven't included and some more feedback on your inclusions?
What do you think of:
Garruk, Apex Predator: His emblem is weak in this deck, but he puts out very good blockers and has removal for both planeswalkers and creatures. What makes him excluded from the deck?
Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury: Her 2 first abilities seems very good with ramp and removal, is it not powerful enough to impact the board?
Gideon, Ally of Zendikar: I see that he is not as powerful, but his tokens are very nice. I want to include him in my build as i have one, but what do you think of him and is he even the best gideon to include?
Sorin, Grim Nemesis: His +1 seems really good also since a lot of planeswalkers has a CMC of 4-5, and he has decent removal, i see that Sorin, Solemn Visitor emblem is very strong, but would you think running both would be an option?
Jace Beleren: Is his impact to little?
Sphere of Safety: Seems to be a good include with the decent amount of enchantments in the deck, doesn't it seem to be worth running as it will slow a lot of swarm strategies down?
How have these performed?
Jace, the Mind Sculptor: How has he performed? He has seemed underperforming in a lot of EDH games, and his Ult is very hard to reach. He has nice abilities but are they worth it?
Karn, Scion of Urza: He is not yet listed in your primer? Are you testing him out?
Ob Nixilis of the Black Oath: I can only see him being here for the tokens, are they good enough to justify a spot?
Lastly, as planeswalkers are really great, it is hard to stop oneself from including to many, would you yourself like to run more than your 21 at the moment?

Your list does look pretty decent. Shalai is illegal in this deck because of the green mana symbols.
Your land base is probably running too many tapped lands, although it might be ok with a control strategy. Sea of Clouds is a new untapped dual which slots in easily, probably better than Prairie Stream since you don't have that many basics. I would recommend replacing a couple of lands with artifact ramp like Thran Dynamo and Worn Powerstone. Chromatic Lantern works really well with your Caged Sun. Not a fan of Burnished Hart although it's better with flash from Raff. Dowsing Dagger Flip is really good if you can flash it in before your turn so you know who doesn't have blockers. Sword of the Animist is also decent ramp. Marble Diamond and Sky Diamond will also work.
Definitely add in a Cyclonic Rift, arguably the most powerful spell in Commander.
Phyrexian Metamorph can be cast at instant speed and becomes whatever artifact or creature you need it to be. Sakashima the Impostor becomes an extra copy of one of your legends. Helm of the Host could be useful since you have so many legends, and Hammer of Nazahn is a great trick to grant indestructibility and free equip costs.
You might be able to benefit from As Foretold since you can flash in free spells on each of your opponents' turns.
