I actually just put in Luminarch Ascension. I'm slowly tentatively getting in some ok playtesting finally on playedh. A number of games I've had trouble closing it out especially when a piece of Squirrel Craft got exiled by something. I've removed GAAIV for it.

Now for some effects that trigger when you draw cards, to abuse Zedruu's draw trigger.
Diviner's Wand could help you get more damage through, a surprise flying blocker, and gives you a mana sink.
Hoofprints of the Stag is a Luminarch Ascension that doesn't draw as much aggro.
Jace's Projection could get swull, but would be most useful if you have some more Jaces to use it with.
Speaking of planeswalkers, Teferi, Hero of Dominaria 's ult will allow you to seal the game with Zedruu on the board.
Nezahal, Primal Tide is good for all sorts of reasons. Big attacker/blocker, give you no max hand size, and extra draw power to boot.
Niv-Mizzet, Parun is another choice to increase draw power and spread damage around the board.
Psychic Corrosion is the balls-deep version of Jace's Erasure. It hits everyone, which can be a bad thing with mill in Commander.
The Locust God could go in the deck too. Not for the crazy infinite combos, but just to poop out flying bodies.
Well of Lost Dreams can be used in tandem with Zedruu for even more draw power.

Eerie Interlude would help you deck out a lot. Also, if you switch four of your lands for Shefet Dunes you can run Eldrazi Displacer for a recurring bounce effect. In addition, if you run Emeria, The Sky Ruin you can return you creatures to play, namely the morphing ones.
As for side-board cards.... All are budget cards.
1) Kataki, War's Wage against artifact decks.
2) Nihil Spellbomb against graveyard decks.... however, if you want to make the most out of it you have to add in black/white lands.
Ideas for token production.
2) Hoofprints of the Stag is slow, but can be a real pain when not dealt with.
I like the idea of your deck, but you need more ways to win the game. That is why I suggested the two token generators.

Oh? Then if you want to make it a life deck, I'd encourage you to take a look at Karlov of the Pings. It's a life gain deck of mine, has a lot of great stuff. However it should be noted that to truly break Krav's ability there should be some token producers too.
Benevolent Offering can win you some friends on the table. Brimaz, King of Oreskos is a powerhouse. Captain's Claws can be equipped to Regna. Cenn's Enlistment can get rid of garbage lands. Doomed Traveler is a generally great card. Entreat the Angels is awesome. Ghoulcaller Gisa is oddly both a sac outlet AND token producer. Hero of Bladehold is a legend. Hidden Stockpile is honestly pretty good. Hoofprints of the Stag and Krav work great together. Hunted Witness is a slightly worse Doomed Traveler, Icatian Crier is a great way to pitch lands. Legion's Landing Flip is a nice one-drop and a permanent source in the late game. Leonin Warleader is nice. Lingering Souls is a classic. Militia's Pride, along with all these other cards, makes me wonder if attack-based tokens is a viable modern strategy. Mobilization is great if the game gets stagnant. Monastery Mentor is soooo good. Necromancer's Covenant is insane against aristocrats. Ogre Slumlord is a great rattlesnake and honestly the freaking best. Ophiomancer isn't quite as good, but still nice. Patrol Signaler- again with the attackers! Pawn of Ulamog could also be a great mana source, in the same vein as Sifter of Skulls. Promise of Bunrei seems really good. Quest for the Gravelord is a good thicc boi. Raise the Alarm is actually pretty underrated. Regal Bloodlord is great here. Sacred Mesa is great, and very repeatable. Smothering Abomination would be devastating here. Sengir Autocrat is 4 sac targets. Skirsdag High Priest can make some thicc bois. Sorin, Lord of Innistrad and Sorin, Grim Nemesis are both perfect for this deck. Twilight Drover is also freaking amazing. Wingmate Roc is, once again, practically designed to be played here!

Ill look at each one and look for a better version of that card. Alpha Authority could be swapped for one of the sowrds.
Prowler's Helm could be one of the swords

Another idea in case you decide to get infinite mana/large draw is Hoofprints of the Stag.This my current deckEstrid, The Enchantress, I have taken a lot of ideas from Tomer's https://www.mtggoldfish.com/deck/1248225#paper. Additionally I'd recommend you adding some more enchant land cards, 2 seems quite low. Getting Estrid out turn 3 rocks because she can untap your enchanted lands as well.
From what I've encountered so far in my play group is, I do well 1v1 unless they blow up my enchanted lands. I did pretty well in two other games like 5* and https://www.reddit.com/r/EDH/comments/1plyyj/kingdoms_edh_variant/ I did pretty well in two.
I haven't tested Oath of Teferi much yet, but it seems very good. 8+ mana on enchanted lands seems great.
The largest problems I've faced with Estrid is when my opponents destroy my lands(particularly enchanted lands) and when my opponents win off of a combo or something of that nature.

I've noticed a few things going over the deck:
Song of the Dryads is missing here. It's almost $10 but it's that high up for a reason. A really good card.
You're running Bruna, Light of Alabaster with so few auras to work with. I'd take her out for another card that would perform well. Seeing as you got enchantresses and pillowfort, Luminarch Ascension and Hoofprints of the Stag would work well. Heliod, God of the Sun also works great since the tokens trigger Constellation (it's more powerful if you can spend on a Serra's Sanctum).
I hope these tips help. A lot of my other suggestions would've really busted your wallet.
