Sweet deck! I've always thought feldon was powerful but I never actually got around to building him. One card I'd like to recommend is Fanatic of Mogis. I'm not sure how much devotion to red you have on the battlefield at any given time so it might not be the best suggestion. I'd also like to throw out Thornbite Staff.

Alright, let's see here...
You have a lot of good cards in here, but it all seems a little unfocused. You have parts of several strategies in here, but you don't seem to have a full one. A good thing to ask yourself is "How is my deck meant to win?" and build it from there.
See, that's a bit tricky with Child of Alara, because technically almost any strategy is playable with it. A popular strategy for Child of Alara decks is Super Friends, as in a planeswalker-centered strategy, however that strategy does not take long to get expensive.
If you wanted to swap Child of Alara out for Progenitus as your commander you could run a voltron build, as in a strategy of killing off your opponents with commander damage(A player loses when they have taken 21 damage from a commander). For that you's just need to run pump spells, auras, equipments and things that work well with those types of spells.
You could just run a straight up 5-color good-stuff deck. All the best pure value cards in every color, which looks like the strategy you've started going with, so that's what I'll try to give you advice towards.
Now, first things first, you have a few cards that don't offer much synergy with the rest of your deck. I would recommend taking out Seraph of the Masses, Veteran Warleader, and Blighted Steppe, as they are primarily used for creature token-based strategy and you only run 29 creatures. Prism Ring, Fanatic of Mogis, Skyreaping and Gray Merchant of Asphodel are all cards best run in mono-colored decks, so I might take them out, as well. Maze Glider and Maze Abomination have effects that could work really well for you here, but their steep mana costs are not forgivable.
Don't be discouraged, though, you have a lot of good stuff to work with here! Mystical Tutor, for example,is a commander staple with counterparts in green and white that you may want to run all of. The others are Enlightened Tutor and Worldly Tutor.
Combustible Gearhulk is another fine choice, and I'd even recommend running the other 4 gearhulks alongside it. Verdurous Gearhulk is an 8/8 trample for 5, or makes something else bigger, Torrential Gearhulk is a bigger Snapcaster Mage, Noxious Gearhulk is targeted removal for your opponents big threats, and Cataclysmic Gearhulk is a controlled board wipe that lets you keep your most important cards in play. The best part about all of them is that even after their abilities go off, you still have a massive creature with a keyword ability.
A 5-color good-stuff strategy can get expensive fast, too, so I understand if you decide against it.
Also, if you're new to Commander as a format, you may consider running a commander with fewer colors and a clearer strategy. For example, if you like the idea of a creature token strategy, Rhys the Redeemed, Trostani, Selesnya's Voice and Krenko, Mob Boss are all great for that. If you haven't been, I'd go to edhrec.com as a starting point.
Good luck with your deck building, I hope you stick around!

Looks pretty good! I'd recommend Fanatic of Mogis, Vexing Devil and Temur Battle Rage. The Fanatic can chunk someone down or flat out kill them when he comes down, the devil is ludicrously obnoxious to see early, and the combat trick can be the perfect finisher when you get an opening or to mess up a bad combat.

I play Mogis minotaurs if you're looking for a one mana drop I strongly recommend Gnarled Scarhide as a replacement for Vampire Lacerator. Gnarled Scarhide easily fills the role of a turn one drop, a free drop with Ragemonger, and acts as an enchantment for later game. Sure, it can't block, but you not really worried about that when you're mostly going on the attack. Plus it makes it a true minotaur tribal, and you're not dinging yourself with Vampire Lacerator.

First suggestion: More Reckoners then Spitemares, because they're just better.
Second: trade your lands for Snow Covered ones and then you can use Skred.
Third: any thought os Fanatic of Mogis?

Flametongue Kavu is really powerful for repeatable removal. Also, 4 power makes for a nice creature to hastily send to your opponent each turn.
Molten Primordial has a powerful etb that not only removes blockers, but also creates more attackers for you each turn.
Mindclaw Shaman rips apart opponents' hands by creating tokens of it every turn.
Fanatic of Mogis is a wincon if you have enough devotion.
Bogardan Hellkite has a powerful etb that wipes out token armies or can take out a single big creature.
Tuktuk Scrapper is a better card than Manic Vandal for artifact destruction. Creating a token copy of it means both will trigger and destroy artifacts; plus, they deal damage as an upside.
Emrakul's Hatcher grants you every time you make a token copy of it, which is pretty powerful mana ramping.

ew you can find a better minotaur than Ruinous Minotaur. that card is a shot in the foot. may i suggest Fanatic of Mogis and Felhide Spiritbinder combo. I won several times with that combo. its not a too expensive deck to build. power to the minotaur berserker. FEAR THE HERD!!!!!
