Centaur Omenreader might fit. Who likes paying casting costs?

What would you think about a Centaur Omenreader with either Earthcraft or Cryptolith Rite? Add in not only two more things to help explode in ramp, but this dude that acts like a Semblance Anvil. Shame he ain't a druid though.
Power is a big theme here, why not a Mark of Sakiko or Greater Good (+Library of Leng)? Mark is plenty good with how many +X/+X or +1/+1 counters you run, giving you what almost feels like a free creature each second main phase. Greater Good allows you to draw from your creatures when they get targeted by a Boomerang or Vindicate.

Overall, I really like your theme and I've been wanting to build a snow themed deck for a while. You've got some great ideas going but there are a couple of small problems as well.
However, your #7, Rimewind Cryomancer + Cover of Winter wont work. The Cryomancer can counter an activated ability. However, cumulative upkeep is a trigger. Keep the Cromancer, she's too good against too many other things. You will have the same problems with the other cumulative upkeep cards as well. If you want to keep the cumulative upkeep creatures, look at Mistmeadow Witch which would allow you to flicker them and reset the upkeep counters.
Your #9, Instead of using Rimewind Taskmage or Squall Drifter to tap your own creature, why not look at Springleaf Drum and Holdout Settlement to accomplish the same goal. Also, the Drum and Settlement can use any creature with summoning sickness to make mana. Another way to go would be to look at something like Aura of Dominion or Viridian Longbow to tap the Centaur Omenreader for an effect instead.
Your #13, the Gelid Shackles is too weak. The table politics aren't strong enough of a tactic to work in your favor.
Your #14, You are correct about Mimic Vat being able to copy a land that died as a creature. But you also have to remember that the land token created by Mimic Vat will get exiled at the next end step.
Your #15, Welcome to the game! One piece of advice I always like to give new players for evaluating a card is this: You have a fixed number of sleeves for that deck. if you draw that card in the middle of a game, will that card make a difference or will you be disappointed drawing that card? If you don't feel that a specific card helps more often than you feel disappointed drawing it, replace that card.
I think the Sakura-Tribe Scout is a bit weak in this deck since you aren't really drawing that many additional cards per turn. This is one of those cards that is nice in the early game, but drawing it mid or late game, it's just a blocker and not very useful.

Welcome to my area of expertise. I love building decks nobody has ever thought up and using cards that are purely jank. I'll name a commander and then couple cards people have either forgot or think are useless and a general theme you could play (no pressure to play it that way).
And those are just the "A's" when I searched on gatherer for all legendary creatures. I could go on, but it's up to your creativity. If you like what I'm pitchin, feel free to either take one of these ideas or do some research of your own on a commander you might want to do something phunky with.

Boza on endless one

The card works like any other X spell. You first declare the value of X (lets say 6) and when you go to the step to calculate mana costs, figure out any additions and deductions to mana costs. For example:
Feroz's Ban is in play and you declare the value of X to be 6. Now, you have to pay 8 mana in order to have a creature with 6 counters on it.
You have a tapped Centaur Omenreader, a Geist-Fueled Scarecrow and a Eye of Ugin. You declare the value of X to be 6. You have to pay 6 - 2 + 1 - 2 = 3 mana to get an Endless One with six counters on it.

With all the enchantments, Herald of the Pantheon would be cool and would free up your 3cmc slot which is very choked with gold. To maximise the ramp effect Courser of Kruphix, Edge of Autumn and Centaur Omenreader, I suggest you also play Centaur Battlemaster which can get out of hand, FAST. Chuck Nessian Courser, he's useless. I don't like Unflinching Courage because it gives little. All I see is Lifelink. I think that since this is aggro with a little ramp, after including Herald, Collective Blessing is a cool anthem to stick with the flavour. Coat of Arms essentially helps Elves and Merfolk in the format to beat you up badly. Collective Blessing should be faster, and is more consistent as after a wipe, if you have 1 creature, you still have a chance. Swordwise Centaur is a nice 2 drop for 3/2. Vanilla aggro. A 'sideboard' should have some... well... more centaurs? Leaf Dancer? Skyshooter? Maybe a pumping Scab-Clan Charger?? I personally don't like Ethereal Armor. Rancor is cool. Mirror Entity is a possibility as the X skill stacks with the enchantments and gets rid of mana from ramping late game. It works at instant speed too.
