In your maybeboard I like:
Giltspire Avenger Exalted and can deter attackers, but 3 colors and $1+ makes sense to be a cut.
I would make room for Battlegrace Angel, has exalted and gives your Exalted Attacker lifelink. $0.56!
Cathedral of War was the land I was thinking about Friday, but it's $1.50! Can't include.
Sovereigns of Lost Alara is very powerful, tutors the exact aura you need for any situation, and probably makes them unblockable or lifelink in the process. With every strike it becomes lethal. $5 hard to account for but might be a way.
Rhox Charger is exalted and he has built in Trample, 3/3 Exalted for CMC4 isn't too bad for $0.25.
Stoic Angel would be an auto-include for me, especially with all of your guys making creatures come into play tapped. Swing with your Vigilance (Flying) Angel alone, and avoid any type of counter-strike from opponents. No going to find a better card for $0.50.
Grunn, the Lonely King is another option, he's CMC6 for 5/5 no Trample, but when he attacks, Stack his triggered ability, and then layer on all the Exalted, after the exalted get added, he doubles himself. If you have the kicker 3 a 10/10 for 9 is still ok. Needs a Rancor but he's pretty reasonable, especially with all the built in evasion effects.
Suprised you don't have Knotvine Paladin, he gets +1 from the Exalted ability, and stacks a second +1 for each "untapped" creature, which they all are, so doubles the Exalted when he attacks, another good finisher like Grunn, the Lonely King when evasion is available.
Cold-Eyed Selkie can draw some cards, since your not using blue much you don't have as much draw, since he's still works. Also if you can Exalted and Islandwalk someone, can repopulate your hand.
Swords to Plowshares is the best removal in Budget for $1.
Sigil of Valor is the exalted equipment because it doubles the Exalted effects!.
Sigil of the Nayan Gods not bad, because if it useless, it has Cycling.
I'll continue further review later, off the top of my head,
Reciprocate generally bad, once it's hit your life it's too late, someone (situational) it will be good, but most creatures you NEED to remove aren't attacking, and if they are, the specifically have to attack you, and you have to choose to let them hit your life. Condemn is better because it can attack anyone, and doesn't have to connect to your life specifically.
Skarrg Goliath is too high CMC to be useful, and his bloodlust is also too high CMC.
More to come later, I used to have a Daxos of Meletis deck, so I have some ideas, but I utilized the quite a bit more. Fun Selesnya build. +1.

Daxos of Meletis would probably be a more functional/flavorful Commander since he's a soldier.

Thursday night report, so much mana!
Tonight, finally added Crypt Ghast (replaced Ivory Tower) as I also put in Cabal Stronghold. Wow, amazing! I mean, no duh, right? I had Crypt Ghast most of the game and untapped a turn or two with those newly acquired cards plus Caged Sun and Cabal Coffers. Mike was borrowing my Kynaios and Tyro of Meletis deck and had the Insurrection but that was effectively countered by my Sudden Spoiling. I untapped and attacked, eliminating Arvad the Cursed because Angela's top deck was revealed by Brendon's Daxos of Meletis techy Lantern of Insight to be Urza's Ruinous Blast. After a Corpse Harvester sacrifice, Sheoldred, Whispering One reanimated Gray Merchant of Asphodel for the win. I was drowning in mana for enough turns to have over 20 devotion.
Of course, the previous game was more ignominious as I used Sidisi, Undead Vizier to get Bojuka Bog for Tori's Alesha, Who Smiles at Death deck rather than Cabal Coffers to further my own agenda. She was at a low enough life total I need not have done that. Kothophed, Soul Hoarder was then my final undoing as Tana, the Bloodsower had four swords equipped and enough tokens with a sac outlet to finish me off.

ThallionDarkshine thank you for the response, unfortunately the deck I made was way to fast for my playgroup to deal with so I am attempting to slow it down and move away from 21 commander dmg. If you have any ideas about what I could shift this into I am all ears. I am thinking about turning it into a double strike interactions deck( like Daxos of Meletis.)

Daxos of Meletis is an old favorite of mine. He's like another Augury Adept, except he has natural evasion and lets you draw from your opponent's library!

There are some really cool azorius commanders that dont get hated out very often. My favorite choice, which still fits the style you wanted (taking things) is Daxos of Meletis. He is really fun and kind of trolly. A more competitive option is Bruna, Light of Alabaster. You just run a lot of auras and attack people, but she can also control the board a lot just because of her colors. Also, she makes REALLY profitable Fact or Fiction's.
