I agree you are worried about life link Whip of Erebos is better that way all you creatures get lifelink.

Now I am torn

Opaline Bracers cost 4 to get down and 2 equip but starts with counters

Banshee's Blade cheaper but have to do combat damage for that first counter

Think that going to be your preference

Astral Cornucopia < Gilded Lotus in my personal opinion. Thran Dynamo would also be a good include. Honestly, while Land Tax is good...Mana Reflection is better as Mana Reflection actually ramps you while Land Tax only lets you keep up with the Jones's mana base.

I'm not seeing any green ramp spells such as Seek the Horizon, Cultivate, etc. all. Was there a reason for this (personal choice or thematic) as my suggestion would be to cut Banshee's Blade, Ring of Xathrid, Titan Forge, Scarab Feast, and Savor the Moment for some of the green ramp spells and/or further artifact ramp.

Also, I'd start by adding two more lands somehow as 35 lands isn't the best to run for commander I have found.

Looks pretty good, I have a Sram deck with fairly similar counts on voltron + lands & it tends to beat face consistently. Your's is a little different in that you utilize 2x commanders. That being said, I see a couple of reasons for KEEPING Reyhan, Last of the Abzan

    1. GREEN color identity, those low cost green hexproof/shroud auras are reason enough to keep Reyhan - In fact I'd think about more due to you having a self-growing commander that isn't quite so screwed by shroud: Sexy BUDGET green aura to think about - Aspect of Mongoose , Canopy Cover , and CURSES!! Bear Umbra isn't budget but it sure smacks people. Pollenbright Wings can suddenly make you swing/block wide & is ridiculous with all that double strike.
    1. You use so much shroud so it is nice to have a secondary equip option, unfortunately in Sram I actually had to PULL Lightning Greaves due to several games where I played it early for protection but never found myself drawing in to a new equip option; fortunately for you, you have a 2nd option readily available in Reyhan if Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker is shrouded & blocked from further equip/targeting (nifty bonus that his innate ability lets him continue to grow)

Other things I think I noticed/possible suggestions (trying to stay on budget)

    1. Vanishing - SERIOUSLY CAREFULLY READ THE RULINGS ON HOW PHASING WORKS!!!!!!!!! - I have seen this card attached to Zur wreaking MASSIVE havoc, it is by far more damaging than both indestructible & hexproof combined (as long as you have 2 blue mana open (the only downside for you is if you phase out (Ishai - I don't think his ability makes him grow... but still very strong) Seems mostly superior to Mistmeadow Witch
    1. Sigarda's Aid maybe?
    1. Trepanation Blade can surprise people
    1. Sword of the Animist a little $$ right now for some reason :(
    1. Grappling Hook I know the cmc is steep but I have surprised quite a few people by using that secondary ability
    1. Mask of Avacyn due to the importance of hexproof in your deck & the current $$ of Champion's Helm
    1. Argentum Armor maybe a bit steep $$ or cmcwise
    1. I would think about taking out Blade of Selves although it is cool I THINK duplicating your legendary creatures would be a dead effect seeing as how those legendary duplicates would be instantly erased (maybe you have it for some deathtrigger combo with Reyhan?)
    1. Banshee's Blade or because

Really neat deck, I'm a little jealous of some of the color combos & other stuff you utilize that Sram cannot. Curious as to how it would square off against Sram voltron.. probably a 50/50 FAST game type of situation. Also, would depend heavily on the types of mana base both decks were drawing in to.
