Apparently, I didn't go through your deck list as thoroughly as I thought I did, since I listed some items you've already selected. If you get your hands on one, I would run Contagion Clasp in addition to Contagion Engine. More counters is more counters.
I was actually trying to put together an Atraxa deck with this exact gimmick. And then I found this deck, and you've already done a lot of the heavy lifting! Hooray for me! For realz, you've got some really great selections in here, and I look forward to seeing how you develop it. I think it's going to be pretty beastly.

Thanks for the suggestions. I've been constantly trying to get new input on this deck. I am definitely going to add Contagion Clasp when I can get ahold of one, but I plan to keep the engine as well for that double proliferate. Also Corpsejack Menace is already in the deck. I have Ivorytusk Fortress in my sideboard I took out because of Brave the Sands Should I run both?

You want this deck to be as fast as possible, so add some more ramp/mana rocks. Consider cards like Sol Ring, Orzhov Signet, Golgari Signet, Boros Signet and Weathered Wayfarer. If you have money to spare, consider Land Tax and/or Mana Crypt.
You don't want Kaalia to die before she can attack, so add some more protection for her. Lightning Greaves and Gift of Immortality are great for her. Dolmen Gate gives her some nice protection while she's attacking. I'd drop both Umbra's and replace one of em with Spirit Mantle.
Instead of all this I'd cut Always Watching , Brave the Sands and some of the creatures from this deck to make room. You really don't need 36 large creatures. I'm running 28 and I never have trouble finding some face-stomping material whenever I need some.

You've got 2 Sunspear Shikari listed here.
One of my personal favorite, but under valued cards, is Dragon Throne of Tarkir. It can work well with voltron-y token decks like this.
Aside from all that, IMO, you've got a lot of land for a pretty low curve. On the otherhand, you don't have much in the way of mana rocks so 41 lands may be a good idea. :P
Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx likes mono colored decks with lots of devotion.
I am kinda iffy about Sigil of the Empty Throne in this. If you can get out, you've only got 8 other cards that could trigger it and it doesn't make cats.
To bad Knight of the White Orchid isn't a 'cat.' :/

For hexproof/similar abilities you'll want to be looking at Swiftfoot Boots, Mask of Avacyn, Darksteel Plate, Lightning Greaves, General's Kabuto and Champion's Helm. In regards to vigilance I'm guessing you want mass as opposed to single card vigilance? In this case you should look at Brave the Sands, Heliod, God of the Sun, Hold the Gates, Serra's Blessing and Angelic Field Marshal. Please dont take this the wrong way but I feel you have a fair few cards that aren't really in keeping with your gameplan or rest of the deck. For instance, Dragonlord Dromoka has a stax effect which youre not utilizing with other cards. Similarly, you're not running sacrifice so Ghoultree's mana reducing ability is unlikely to be utilized. Also, your land count is really low. An average EDH deck will run around 37 but you are using high costing creatures which require lands and ramp.

Oh right, hexproof is still weak to board wipes, so maybe something with regenerate or indestructible like Heroic Intervention or Asceticism. More expensive but great cards for decks like this are like Thrun, the Last Troll. I also like using stuff like Brave the Sands for vigilance so you can still block after going for damage. Cheers

Abrupt Decay in commander is meuh...., Necropotence is better than Underworld Connections in every way, considering you play no "beginning of the draw step" except Sylvan Library, I know Skinshifter is cool, but state base wise he's only a 1/1, if someone bolt it and you transform it in response, at the end of the turn it will still die, Maze of Ith is a most in commander against Voltron of deathtouch strategies, Brave the Sands is a good "vigilance all", in a commander with wall it's great, and Stalwart Shield-Bearers is another "Lord" for defender heavy strategy, Rolling Stones is also good if you run more defender, which you don't, good thing for normal commander.
Otherwise, great deck, I have a tiny leader similar, super fun!

Assuming 4x of each spell:
A very strong Soldiers tribal here. Maybe check out my soldiers concept Colonialists?
I think Fiendslayer Paladin is probably mostly sideboard creature, albeit a good one. maybe 1x Mainboard.
