Also, Forgotten Ancient is awesome and sorely missing.

After looking at your list I came up with these suggestons:
If you would like to see other EDH decks, you can always check the ones I play which are present on my profile page. I like to play with this deck the most of the time. An upvote is always appreciated :)
Have fun on T/O and if you ever need EDH advise, you can always summon me. Glad to help out.

@HaunterHunter - Let's talk.
The double mana granted from Zendikar Resurgent would be great... if I had the double mana to cast itself. At a whopping seven mana, I really don't need my lands to tap for double. There are also better sources of card draw. It's win-more, so that's a no.
Forgotten Ancient is actually just a sponge for hate... It came with the pre-constructed deck, but I took it out because it would instantly be targeted, never reaching its potential.
the problem with Plaxcaster Frogling is that it gives shroud. That means that, if one of my creatures is targeted in my first main phase and I use pay the 2 to grant shroud, that creature can not be targeted by Ezuri this turn. It's a weakness that could be exploited by my opponents, and I can't have that. It's the same reason I won't include Kira, Great Glass-Spinner.
Bane of Progress hits the board as a 2/2, so it would trigger Ezuri. However, I cannot run this. There are too many artifacts that I use and would rather not have destroyed. Also, it doesn't do anything with the counters. The trained eye will see that most of my creatures don't just have counters. They do something with them.
I think you may have misused the term "better". In Magic, saying something is better (implying that it is strictly better) means that it is in every way superior. That cannot be said with Krosan Grip and Nature's Claim. Split second is a nice ability to have, but you know what else is nice? Leaving one mana open as I pass the turn, then surprising my opponent with removal on his turn. Krosan grip came with the pre-con, and I replaced it for a reason.
Verdant Confluence is good, but 6 mana is demanding.
Loaming Shaman is amazing, actually. It has won many games for me. Does it trigger Ezuri? no, and I wish it did. But getting my entire graveyard back is nothing to sneeze at. Contrary to your comment, he is honestly great, and that's why he's in.
I wouldn't say that Walking Ballista is better than Triskelion. Lets say you pay 6 for ballista; the same cost as triskelion. It would come in with the same number of counters, but with 1 less power and 1 less toughness. Also, I can remove all counters from triskelion and have it survive; the same cannot be said for ballista. It does have the ability to scale, which is handy. It's a good card, to be sure, and maybe even one I would include. But, again, I disagree with your assessment of "better".
Don't fool yourself: Mwonvuli Beast Tracker (I can't even tell you how many times I spelled that incorrectly) is not Worldly Tutor. It's on a stick, so i'll excuse the higher mana cost. However, it cannot search for creatures such as Sage of Hours, Fathom Mage, Triskelion, Wild Beastmaster, Champion of Lambholt... the list continues. Never underestimate versatility and flexibility in Commander, my good man.
Thanks for your thoughts!

Some other good cards to consider:
Zendikar Resurgent Double mana + draw power from creatures win-win
Forgotten Ancient is a non-trample managorger that can give Ezuri counters since he cant give counters to himself.
Plaxcaster Frogling Although it doesn't trigger Ezuri it can graft and give shroud to your creatures for only 2
Spawnwrithe is a trample-ing ezrui trigger that replicates itself. first you get two, then you have four, eight and so on. If its not hated out it can very easily continue to double itself. And each time it doubles, it triggers Ezuri.
Bane of Progress is a artifact/enchantment board wipe. It is a 2/2 but im not sure if it comes in with the +1 counters from the destroyed artifacts and enchants.
Krosan Grip is a must have removal, it's honestly better than nature's claim due to its split second. although it does cost 2 more mana
Verdant Confluence is a jack of all trades that does it quite well. Want ramp? here's three lands. Want counters? here's six counters. want your graveyard back? Heres three cards. Plus you can combo it with Skullwinder and Eternal Witness.
Try to avoid basically all 3 and higher toughness creatures unless they can add more counters to ezuri. Loaming Shaman is honestly not good enough to be put in.
There's also a new card in aether revolt that does what Triskelion does but its cheaper and better. You might want to wait for it to cycle out of standard before buying it because its at or around 15 dollars right now. Walking Ballista. Plus it can trigger Ezuri, unlike Triskelion
Mwonvuli Beast Tracker is a worldly tutor that triggers ezuri. You will most likely use it for Kalonian Hydra, but there are many other trample creatures you could add(some of which I mentioned above). You could also put in Hornet Queen which can also be searched for. Managorger Hydra, Invisible Stalker and Acidic Slime are all good options. Plus they all do what is the most important, Trigger Ezuri.

RicketyEng I've updated the list according to my real deck now. Still haven't got a Narset and I've made a few other changes as well...
More planeswalkers now, less creatures. Also removed the "draw engine" with Fathom Mage because there are far better standalone drawing cards available. I've added the Helm of Obedience combo, just because I have a lot of tutors and Leyline is cool against the Hermit Druid and other decks we have in our playgroup.
Added Words of Wind for several reasons. works well with Sylvan Library and Jace, the Mind Sculptor, also cool to bounce cards that benefit from being played again with Doubling Season, planeswalkers or Tangle Wire for example...

If I were you, I'd cut Corpsejack Menace, Forgotten Ancient, Ghave, Guru of Spores, Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper, Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker, Kalonian Hydra, Master Biomancer, Reyhan, Last of the Abzan, and Vulturous Zombie to sweeze in as many Planeswalkers as you can.
Creatures are nice as a crutch, but too many of them ruin the consistency and flexibility that Superfriends has to offer you. Plus, you have Spike Weaver for that dank Turbofog effect.
The link below is a balanced and Praetor-approved Superfriends decklist for your reference.
