Some cutting ideas if you want them.
Colossus of Akros is meh
Hornet Nest is too defensive I think.
Concordant Crossroads is one I go back and forth on. I love it, but it has hosed me before.
I always try to use it, but Whispersilk Cloak just never seems to do much for me.

Colossus of Akros+Dragon Throne of Tarkir+Assault Formation is one of my favorite combos. I highly recommend trying it out. If you were you were going to try that, I'd put three or four Sylvan Caryatid for ramp. Could also throw in some Courser of Kruphix Might want to put them in anyway for more mana fixing. Never hurts. If you wanted some removal you could splash some black for Grim Contest or Kin-Tree Invocation for some real fun. Possibly a few Brave the Sands so you can attack and then still block the turn after.

The deck performed a lot better with all the deathtouch Creatures I could make using Garruk's first ability.
Thanks so much for the feedback.

Maybe Colossus of Akros? It stays as a defender even after you send it monstrous and its really hard to deal with a 20/20 indestructible trample lol

I stuck Surrak, the Hunt Caller in my deck, but felt that other than the conditional haste clause he wasn't really a threat, and much like Soul of the Harvest, didn't win the contest of hitting multiple creatures with Mayael's ability.
Honestly, since getting a job, I'm playing a lot less MTG and have really only recently given up Standard for EDH, and I'm playing in a completely-multiplayer EDH meta... and my Sacs to the Thrax deck gets more play than my For The Nayan Horde! (until just recently when I acquired some major Mayael components).
I've never gone infinite with Hellkite Charger, oddly enough, but I have used him in conjunction with Utvara Hellkite and Trostani, Selesnya's Voice in one of the most decisive games I've ever had, lol.
I just recently stuck in my own Mayael's Aria after throwing in Colossus of Akros as an alternate win-con (and I actually got my Hamletback Goliath up to a 153/153 the other day, with NO Nylea, God of the Hunt on board! /cry) The turn right before I could swing with Windbrisk Raptor out, my opponent went ham and killed everyone.
Back on topic, Ruric Thar, the Unbowed has done okay in my deck as I literally did play a Talrand deck a couple weeks ago, and he cost that player over 20 life (and I was only a few turns away from Dictate of the Twin Gods!), then he went combo, took a dozen extra turns, then drew his deck ftw.
