I don't see a win condition, try Gore Swine or Black Lotus, preferebly 4 of them

This looks like a really good deck! My first thought is that you should take out one Lotus Petal for a Black Lotus. It is extremely expensive, but will work great if you aren't on a specific budget. My second thought is that you should be running 4 copies of Descendants' Path, not just 2. I also think that you should probably take out one copy of Contingency Plan for an Ancestral Recall. Also, your mana base would be much stronger if you run Eye of Ugin, making it much easier for you to cast expensive eldrazi spells. Other that that, this deck looks great! Awesome job!

What he said :P

Inspired by the original combo with Black Lotus and Pyrite Spellbomb. Obviously we can't run the former in EDH, so LED happens to work perfectly.

Breya being her own outlet honestly made her my absolute favourite of the 4c generals.

The only two suggestions I would have would be to add either Mox Jet or Black Lotus and if you wanna get spicy try splashing blue for Ancestral Recall

VanguardianLeo, if you're playing no banlist, I'd suggest looking into Erayo, Soratami Ascendant as your commander. Cards like Flusterstorm, Gitaxian Probe and Mental Misstep, Swan Song, Brainstorm, Brain Freeze, Hindering Touch, etc, let you flip her incredibly easily. Just wain until an opponent plays a spell on their turn, cast a couple, and voila, each opponent is pretty much locked out of the game. Not just on their turn, either. Load in a lot of extra counterspells, and then you just need to keep one up and no one will be able to play anything again. She was banned for a reason.

Other banned cards that would be good: Definitely Time Walk and Time Vault. Even if you don't exploit them, that's an extra turn for 2 mana. You can also set up an Isochron Scepter combo with Time Walk, and the above-mentioned Voltaic Key combo with Time Vault. Tinker is a fantastic tutor. It can drop Blightsteel Colossus on turn 2-3. Heck, turn 1 if you use the moxes, which you should use. Black Lotus, Ancestral Recall, and Fastbond all should be used if able. Karakas, too, if you run white. Biggest commander troll available.

If you don't run Erayo, Soratami Ascendant, then definitely play , and focus on Time Walk/Isochron Scepter and Time Vault/Voltaic Key combos. Leovold, Emissary of Trest would be a fantastic commander for this, as he's potential card draw for you, and can really shut down some opponents. He's also quite cheap, and his third color is green, giving you access to ramp. Sen Triplets would make a good commander, as she gives you access to white removal, including Karakas, and locks a player out on your turn, allowing you to combo easier. Sharuum the Hegemon might make the best commander for you though, as 3/4 of the combo pieces that you should base your deck around are artifacts. Regardless of who you choose, fill with tutors (Vampiric Tutor, Demonic Tutor, Transmute Artifact, Trophy Mage, etc) and then just take infinite turns.

So no banlist at all? That opens up some very powerful possibilities. Time Vault plus Voltaic Key might be the most powerful combo available, and should probably be in every deck that has access to blue or black tutors to assemble it. Also, with cards like Black Lotus and the five Moxen, really fast all-in decks with commanders like Narset, Enlightened Master or Sidisi, Undead Vizier become significantly better. Prossh benefits as well, obviously, but maybe not to the same degree.
Honestly, though, are you really sure you want to sidestep the banlist? It's there for a reason, and (at least most of) the cards on it usually break the game in half in rather unfun ways.
Coming back to your question about the game plan for the Prossh deck i linked to: This list is absolutely laser focused on landing Food Chain (lots and lots of tutors to find it), then use it to cast Prossh and generate infinite mana and tokens by recasting him over and over. The win conditions are all creatures, which is necessary since mana generated by Food Chain can only be used on them. Notice how cards like Selvala, Heart of the Wilds and Genesis Hydra interact with the Food Chain + Prossh combo.
