I think you have too many populate/double token effects and too few token generators.
If you can upgrade fog to Constant Mists.
You also should add some more artifact and enchantment removal. White and Green have a ton of ways to deal with artifacts and enchantments.
Other weird token generator effects to consider Blade of Selves and Herald of the Host. When you double the tokens with rhys, the newly created tokens don't get exiled at the end of turn/combat. they remain on the board.
Hope this helps.

Looking nice so far!! Here are some suggestions from my experience, fellow Kaalia player :)
As far as creatures go, pretty much just play the ones you like!
Some less-budget suggestions: Master of Cruelties, pretty much instant kill if they have no blockers. Rune-Scarred Demon, Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, Aurelia, the Warleader, Lord of the Void, Akroma, Angel of Wrath, Gisela, the Broken Blade. Those are some of my favorites. A little heavier on the budget but super fun!
Mid-budget options: Ob Nixilis, Unshackled, Platinum Angel, Anya, Merciless Angel, Mana-Charged Dragon, Rakdos, Lord of Riots, Angel of Despair, Mother of Runes, Deathless Angel, Hellkite Tyrant, Tariel, Reckoner of Souls, Blinding Angel, Overseer of the Damned, Akroma, Angel of Fury.
More budget-friendly options: Angel of Serenity, Angelic Arbiter, Indulgent Tormentor, Reya Dawnbringer, Harvester of Souls, Bloodgift Demon, Exquisite Archangel, Herald of the Host (For multiplayer), Angelic Skirmisher, Bruna, the Fading Light (to pair with Gisela), Seraph of the Sword, Guardian of the Gateless.
There are obviously numerous options as far as creatures go. Those are a couple of mine. But don't go off just what other people say- if you don't like the feel of killing someone outright with Master of Cruelties, don't get him! If you want to play a little more defensive you can run Seraph of the Sword and Guardian of the Gateless or something! Just play what you want to! :)
Not really sure about the curses. I personally probably wouldn't run them, but they seem fun!
Dragon Tempest is a good include. Give all your fliers haste!
You definitely want ramp, and I see you have some. The appropriate signets, Commander's Sphere, Darksteel Ingot, probably the cluestones (They can draw you cards, which is usually more useful than getting a small creature until end of turn, as with the keyrunes).
If you're going to spend a little more, the check lands like Clifftop Retreat and Dragonskull Summit are great. Scry lands such as Temple of Malice and be very useful. Obviously fetchlands and shocklands are good, but not friendly to the budget at all. I don't think they're worth it sometimes. But everything is up to you! :)
Hopefully these suggestions help! I've said it a lot, but play whatever you think will be the most fun for you! Good luck in the building process- I'll be following along to see how it goes! :)

Have you looked at the myriad creatures? Herald of the Host, Caller of the Pack, Blade of Selves in general the tokens created using the myriad trigger get exiled at the end of combat. However, tokens created seperately, for example using Rhys' ability will remain forever.
There are cards that can untap Rhys for more doubling Thousand-Year Elixir.
Curse of Bounty may also work well for a token deck.
Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist also shows promise in a token deck.

Inventors' Fair for Plains. It's just good and there is no reason to have a plains rather than this. (I can trade you one)
Rogue's Passage for Plains if you don't already have it since you don't have lands listed.

I saw your forum post and thought I would offer my two cents because Daxos was my first commander ever! So let's take a look under the hood shall we?
I do think there could be more ramp because Daxos is always hungry for mana. There could also be more in the way of card draw as well. Which when I give recommendations you will some cards that will help with both categories.
So we will begin on in my opinion what should be cut. The following cards I believe should be cut: Necromancer's Covenant, Grave Peril, Seal of Doom, Skull of Orm, Tragic Arrogance, Marshal's Anthem, Nighthowler, Celestial Archon, Banshee of the Dread Choir, Planar Cleansing, Three Dreams, and Herald of the Host. These cards which I have played with before are very slow and sub optimal for locking down the board with a pillowfort strategy.
Now it should be noted that when I recommend cards, I recommend a lot because I like to give people options of what's out there. With that being said there are a few cards that I believe fall under the category of *Must Haves*, those being the following: Dictate of Erebos, Anointed Procession, Mirage Mirror, Phyrexian Arena, Day of Judgment, Ghostly Prison, Kismet, and Plea for Guidance. They do beautifully in a Daxos deck. Now for the other cards I believe would be beneficial(This is where we get lengthy lol): Curse of Disturbance, Nevermore, Darksteel Ingot, Commander's Sphere, Oblivion Ring, Coldsteel Heart, Heartstone, Authority of the Consuls, Darksteel Mutation, Flickering Ward, Grim Guardian, Erebos, God of the Dead, Greed, Kambal, Consul of Allocation, Hour of Revelation, Underworld Connections, Read the Bones, Anguished Unmaking, Utter End, Aegis of the Gods, Swords to Plowshares, Return to Dust, Relic of Progenitus, Whip of Erebos, Ancient Craving, Solemnity, Grand Abolisher, Eidolon of Rhetoric.
Those are my thoughts as of this moment. If you have questions about why I chose certain cards we can talk about it! Lastly as I alwasys say with recommendations; these are my thoughts based on my experience. By no means are they the end all be all for your deck. The point of Magic is that it's your deck and your choices for what you want to do. So please do keep that in mind!

Thx for the +1 aekrusty, much appreciated!
I had in the past Chariot of Victory and Loxodon Warhammer in the deck and I've replaced them both for Sword of Fire and Ice and Sword of Light and Shadow. The reason for this is because of the fact that my board gets "scary" really fast when I start equipping my creatures and thus they get removed. The key to success with this deck is when my creatures stick around, so the swords are more valuable from that aspect. Also, I only need to have one keyword of every kind to get my creatures buffed. So running more artifacts with the same keywords is unnecessary and the deck loses it's flexibility because of it.
I have to admit that I didn't consider Oketra the True and she has to be included, indestructible is king. I'm gonna play-test with her and replace Restoration Angel or Indomitable Archangel with her.
I've found that the trample keyword isn't really needed for this deck since flying mostly does the trick. I'm already going to take out Sword of Vengeance to get an equipment with haste in the deck. So Haunted Cloak (witch is in my opinion a worse Sword of Vengeance) isn't going to make the cut.
Aerial Responder seems like a good card in this deck but there is one flaw, he has nog protection for anything on it's own and is just a big threat combined with Odric. People will recognize this and he will simply get removed. Since I already have a lot of flying and vigilance keywords he is not needed. Fiendslayer Paladin is my pick over him because of the Paladins protection for red and blue spells.
Herald of the Host is to expensive for what she does. There is no way I can tutor her and every 5-drop slot is already taken for the deck. Myriad really shines trough when you can get it to trigger on creatures who reward you for attacking like Sun Titan therefor I only use the Blade of Selves.
Thank you for the comment and your input, I'll put it to good use!

You have a lot of cards that grant keywords to your cretures but a lot of your creatures already have the same keywords so i would look into that and maybe find some cuts.
You are also very land light in this deck considering your curve is higher than average and you are running less than the average land count.
