Platinum Emperion as a big colorless life lock, Hall of the Bandit Lord to beat your opponents' faces in the turn you break the board, Quicksilver Amulet because an instant speed 4 mana Pathrazer of Ulamog will always make your day, Colossus of Akros as something to dump mana into, becoming a 20/20 indestructible because why not, Karn, Silver Golem to swing in with your larger artifacts, Loxodon Warhammer to gain tons of life and get much more damage through. All just suggestions, doing my best to help fellow edh eldrazi lovers. Check out my W/B Eldrazi(sub themed) deck Ayli, Pilgrim of the Blind Eternities. We can go back and forth on improvements for both sides.

My biggest Problem right now is what to take out, because of the incredible low cost of the walls (one and two drops) and the draw gained through the 8 walls, its really fast and works very good. So what would you suggest to take out for a Doran, the Siege Tower or a Tree of Redemption? I maybe could cut two Steel Walls and one Assault Formation and then probably another Rolling Stones (because the number of Walls is decreasing) for a 2 to 2 Ratio, but I am afraight this would slow down the deck to much.
And I would have to play many very expensive double lands, like the shock lands, to splash black only for him. I simply cannot afford that.
@bishopboy3 yeah it worked without Perimeter Captain because his value kinda depends against what you are playing, he is very good against aggro/burn and blue/white/control, but not everytime necessary. And you are right that Colossus of Akros gives me another good win condition.

I've considered both of those myself, I believe he has as well. Tree of Redemption is wicked, pump up his Toughness, then switch you life with it.

I have asked my friend who is a RG tron player what finisher does he use to win the game. Suprisingly he did not say Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger but rather Colossus of Akros. Hear me out guys because he convinced me Colossus of Akros is far superior. Number one your opponents will piss there pants when they see him because they wonder wtf is this guy playing Colossus of Akros. Number 2 he is cheaper than Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger. Seriously compared to the the other Eldrazi he only costs 8 mana what a steal! Then you realize he has defender and then you are paying 18 mana and then you wish you had Emrakul. Simply he double dips your mana and we know how much we love double dippers. Number 3: He is very very sexy. Playing Colossus of Akros will surely raise some eyes. I hope you guys will start throwing your newlamogs in the trash and start he revolution of Colossus of Akros. I know I love this card so much I bought 17.

It worked alright without Perimeter Captain? My buddy is dropping off Colossus of Akros to me tonight and I wasn't 100% certain what I would take out for it and after a few more games with the deck I don't think It needs Asceticism, since alot of casual players will play with mass creature effect cards, thus rendering it useless.
On a side note, I think I played 5-6, 3-4 player games with it and it has yet to lose. It's not a deck for ppl to go out of there way and target, It just kinda hangs out and goes unnoticed. I learnt to let everyone do there thing, and just hold back with it. There too busy worrying about the nasty cards everyone else is playing and forget about the walls.

@bishopboy3 Thank you for the testing and the Suggestions, I tested it and liked your idea with the Colossus of Akros and I will sideboard Asceticism. I know the land-base could be way better, but I want to stay in my budget :D
@Boomstick022 Thank you, sir.

In case you didn't know, Horobi's ability will activate on your creatures. This includes equipment (Hero's Blade is the exception). So if you want you can remove your equipment since they don't work well with your commander. Let's talk about other possible cuts.
Master of the Feast. You said you usually play multiplayer? You are giving 4-6 cards to your opponents every time your turn comes around. His ability gets worse the more players there are.
Jabari's Banner, Crenellated Wall, and Squee's Toy are not very good. With your commander they are good, but you have enough cards in your deck that work with your commander. These are pretty much worthless without him so you should remove them.
Phyrexian Totem is just asking to get you killed. Unless you just use it for mana. Dark Prophecy can also get you killed easily, especially with the commander you're running. Death Pit Offering is just not worth it, and gets you killed in the process.
