I have a Saheeli X spell deck, but Zaxara really piqued my interest when I saw it. Everyone loves hyrdas, and getting board presence of big X spells feels great.
Astral Cornucopia will help your mana and give you a token - It's a steep cost but does fit the theme.
Mass Manipulation has been a powerhouse for me in Saheeli. I appreciate the might be harder for tri-colour, but Zaxara helps with that a lot.
Bloom Tender - If you are running Freed from the Real and Pemmin's, then he is a backup inclusion for the infinite mana route.
Chimeric Mass is a nice way to protect your creature based board from sorcery speed sweeps.
Dark Salvation works as smaller creature (depending on your mana) removal and generates you some additional tokens

I like the plan that you have going with paying life for tutors/draw for big creatures like ol' Blightsteel. I suggest adding more infect creatures to tutor, and more mana rocks and ramp (wink wink, Phyrexian Altar.) Consider more stuff like Battle at the Bridge, cuz they cause huge drains on your opponent. Overall, I love the deck. Also, consider Tyughjbnm89 's advice. +1 from me!

Grunn, the Lonely King could be a good add, as well as Might of the Masses . Mostly use Grunn if you think your opponent is going to have a very low number of kill spells, and Might of the Masses is pretty much just Berserk , but won't kill your creature if your opponent played Fog in response. It also boosts toughness if you need that, such as to attempt to survive something like Battle at the Bridge or Bathe in Dragonfire .

Chief of the Foundry seems like it would be a good fit for your deck. If you had a reliable black mana source I'd suggest Battle at the Bridge too. I'd also suggest Paradise Mantle over Springleaf Drum , simply because the Mantle costs 0 to cast. Lastly there are two thrones that might be worth considering Throne of the God-Pharaoh and Throne of Geth . I hope this helps, good luck brewing your deck.

goldlion it isn't convoke so it actually doesn't help cast any of the nonartifact spells that have only colored in their costs and the card doesn't work with pacts.
So it helps cast chancellor, Sram, Sai, Sly Requisitioner , Somber Hoverguard , Dismember , Into Thin Air , Mindbreak Trap , Not of This World , Sickening Shoal , Summoning Trap , Battle at the Bridge , Grapeshot and Thoughtcast
But most of these cards already have alternate costs.

- Aether Poisoner
- Deathspore Thallid
- Doomed Dissenter
- Marionette Master
- Marsh Flitter
- Myr Propagator
- Myr Sire
- Pitiless Plunderer
- Skirk Ridge Exhumer
- Skirsdag High Priest
These are all token generators I found that don't need any assistance but there are other things to think about. That Cmdr says "whenever a creature with power 1 or less dies return it to play under YOUR control". So this is where you can get creative and simply make your opponents creatures power 1 or less and kill them to bring them back to play under YOUR control.
So right away the first thing I think of is how can we turn your Cmdr into a Grave Betrayal! So cool.
- Sorceress Queen
- Island of Wak-Wak
- Sudden Spoiling
- Battle at the Bridge
- Death Wind
- Kagemaro's Clutch
- Liliana of the Dark Realms
- Nightmarish End
- Nightshade Seer
- Toxic Deluge
- Black Sun's Zenith
I'm sure this is plenty for now I hope this helps

SirChris39 and Zazmage, thanks for your comments and +1!
Zazmage, sounds like you and I are on the same page. I think this self-mill variant is is both more resilient and mana-efficient than a straightforward lord-based zombie build.
I'm still not sold on Phylactery Lich. Losing an artifact and Lich to a single artifact-hate spell is pretty rough.
You're right about Lost Legacy, I'm actually already running two on the sideboard for the reasons you mentioned.
OldScarecrow, regarding matchups, I haven't played Standard in a long time, so I'm out of the loop. I've tried to design the sideboard to help against general deck types. Against control, Duress and Desecrated Tomb, and Liliana's Mastery if you go up against heavy removal. Against weenie/ramp/mirror, bring in Yahenni's Expertise and Settle the Score. Against burn, bring in Battle at the Bridge.
