Hmmm, so basically change the red for blue. I see what you're getting at. It actually wouldn't change the deck that much. Mayael is basically just a mana dump if I have nothing better to do. Her hit rate is about 50% or less, so she's actually not even that critical as a commander. Channel is actually the star card of the deck. Channel + Emrakul on turn 2, game over. That's a winning move in Vintage, let alone casual.
I think I'm going to stay with red because of Godsire and Spellbreaker Behemoth. Hard to say which is better between Lightning Bolt and Counterspell, but going for the full Timmy seems like the way to go with both Shards and Eldrazi. Red also gives me Combustible Gearhulk, which can throw down a lot of damage with all the big CMC cards in the deck.

Okay. Sorry I'm late, so I'll make it a good one.
Maybe too slow: Assemble the Legion, Awakening Zone, Dragonlair Spider, Elspeth, Knight-Errant, Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury, From Beyond, Growing Ranks, Imperious Perfect, Jade Mage, Kazandu Tuskcaller, Krenko, Mob Boss, Rakka Mar, Vitu-Ghazi Guildmage.
Awesome: Artifact Mutation, Aura Mutation, Baloth Cage Trap, Brimaz, King of Oreskos, Hanweir Garrison, Hero of Bladehold, Martial Coup, Nomads' Assembly, Oketra the True, Sacred Mesa, Sram's Expertise, Sundering Growth, Tempt with Vengeance, Tilonalli's Summoner, Trostani, Selesnya's Voice.
So yeah. Quite a list eh? Had to comb through 660 cards. So like... there's a lot.

Mayael the Anima can be really good for "cheating" out big creatures. You just don't get the on-cast triggers from the Elzradi is all, but you can stack the deck with other super-huge monsters like Worldspine Wurm, Blightsteel Colossus and Godsire to get some lovely boardstates.
I once saw a game that went
T1: Land > Sol Ring
T2: Land > Quicksilver Amulet
T3: Land > in opponent's end step, amulet in Worldspine Wurm
T4: Inquisitor's Flail on the wurm, swing for 30.
It was not a long game :P

Here are some cards you may not have thought of yet!

Hi GoldenDiggle (nice alias!),
Thanks for the suggestions. Avenger of Zendikar was actually in this deck at some point, when it was still more of a token-generating deck. Some of the token generators of that period are still in here, but I decided to remove most of them. Mostly, because I don't like using tokens unless they're either strong by themselves OR I include cards to make them strong. That last bit was detrimental to my deck's overall strategy as I had to make room for buffs by removing strong creatures; giving Mayael less of a creature pool to work with.
Gruul Ragebeast is a great idea; it adds some more control to the deck. I'll have a look at which other creature should make room for it (it'll be a hard decision).
Giant Adephage is great too except for one minor detail; I have to damage an opponent in order to generate a copy. There are several scenario's imaginable in which this isn't much of an issue, but still I prefer cards like Godsire and Utvara Hellkite which both don't have that restriction. Still, I'll give this card some more thought.
Again, thanks a lot!
