I feel like you'd be better off with less pingers (tap for damage creatures) and more punishing triggered effects/etb effects on creatures.

Akoum Hellkite , Aria of Flame , Ash Zealot , Bomb Squad , Flameblade Angel (each time your dealt damage by any source with your commander on the ground, it deals 3 damage to that sources commander), Goblin Sharpshooter , Hellrider (same deal as Flameblade but attacking), Invader Parasite , Karplusan Minotaur , Leyline of Lightning , Mindsparker , Purphoros, God of the Forge , Repercussion (works even better since you control the source of damage), Satyr Firedancer (try it with damage based field wipes and you might just clear the table), Stalking Vengeance , Tephraderm , Mondronen Shaman  Flip, Tunnel Ignus , Warstorm Surge

The new Kaalia is very nice; she costs 1 less mana, has vigilance, and has higher power and toughness over her previous incarnation, but, in exchange, her ability is not quite as powerful, but it still shall be very nice in EDH decks with her previous incarnation as the general.

Golos is also very nice, and I do appreciate seeing a creature that allows for five-colored decks in EDH that are not tribal, but I hope that WotC does not overdo those creatures, so that they shall still feel special and unique.

I usually do not play standard, but I am very happy to see protection back in that format; clearly, WotC has realized that that mechanic is not too powerful if used sparingly. Also, it is nice that Disenchant is now finally legal in modern; considering that WotC has not reprinted Holy Day in many sets, instead favoring Fog , it is only fair that white receive something in return.

Field of the dead is too strict to be very powerful; perhaps, if it required only five or six lands with different names, then it would be better.

Leyline of combustion is very nice, but the fact that its ability triggers only once per source of damage, rather than for each permanent that is targeted, severely limits its usefulness (compared to Flameblade Angel , whose ability triggers for each permanent that is targeted). Also, the reprint of Leyline of Anticipation is nice, but it does have me hoping that WotC shall reprint Vedalken Orrery , again, since that card is too expensive at this moment.

You could swap out the instants and sorceries so Vaevictis has a higher success rate.

Engulfing Slagwurm is great to block any troublesome creature, or attack with it and force opponents to block. Flameblade Angel burns opponents when they attack or block you. Hornet Nest can give you lots of deadly tokens when opponents attack you. Dinosaurs with enrage like Polyraptor, Ripjaw Raptor, and Silverclad Ferocidons could be helpful.

Similarly, Phyrexian Obliterator, Vengeful Pharaoh, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, and Dread, with the Pharaoh being great to sacrifice to Vaevictis since it comes back, and Mikaeus bringing almost all your creatures back again. Vigor just protects all your creatures from combat damage and makes them even bigger.

Living Plane and Nature's Revolt forces opponents to tap their lands or else attack with them. Massacre Wurm hurts opponents when their creatures die.

Kothophed, Soul Hoarder will draw you a ridiculous amount of cards, but could kill you if your life is low. Platinum Emperion could be helpful for that, and also making attacks against you pointless.

Savage Ventmaw and Druids' Repository give you mana when you attack, and can give infinite combats with Aggravated Assault.

Got a Gisela. She HAS to be part of the deck!

Just out of curiosity, what has given you the most trouble in terms of opponents building/playing against you? I've played a lot against my friends' Nekusar decks (in multiplayer games rather than 1v1, but they're executing the same plan as you are) and now I keep on hand cards that replace card draw or just play a removal-on-a-stick deck and kill Nekusar. Flameblade Angel is also a cheeky answer I've found, at least in casual formats.

Have you considered Psychosis Crawler? It could add another source of damage when you do a wheel.
