A new land was printed recently that you're gonna want to look at: Hall of Heliod's Generosity . You can also look for Verduran Enchantress , Hero of Iroas , and Sterling Grove .

I'd look at cutting Arixmethes, Slumbering Isle and Hydra Omnivore

Have you tried out Hydra Omnivore in this list? It could be great way to kill multiple or all other players in one shot.

Hey dude! I wanted to just say thanks again for all the advice you gave on Seton. I added a bunch of new stuff to my deck including many of your recs. I so badly want to add the 2-3 eldrazi you have in yours but I just don't have that kind of spending money right now, so I went a more janky route with Gruun, the Lonely King , Bellowing Tanglewurm , Vigor , and Hydra Omnivore .

Anyway, feel free to make more critiques if you wish! I just wanted to send a personal thanks

The four I commented about are the only ones I have played. My Oloro deck was my oldest and favorite commander deck. I had it together from the week he released until all my decks and my binder were stolen last week. The way I had him built was Esper Combo/Control deck while slowly building life advantage. A small number of pillow fort cards along with wipes and targeted removal kept my life going up. The life was used for either the win cons of Test of Endurance and Felidar Sovereign ; for card advantage from Necropotence or Bolas's Citadel ; or just winning if you have both Necro and Citadel. Plenty of tutors make combos more consistent and a small counter package protected the combos. The constant life engine allows you to explore alternate win conditions to what most Esper Control decks use. If you enjoy every decision you make mattering and novel win conditions that are decidedly not cEDH he is a blast. If you have something against combo or want to be high tier competitive he probably isn't the best choice.

Xenagod is again not highly competitive, but from your list of commanders I got the feeling you were more interested in functional and interesting not turn 3 combo or heavy stax. He was my second favorite. There are a number of cards that work exquisitely with Xenagos, God of Revels that are neigh unplayable elsewhere. I had someone ask me "isn't Malignus banned" because of how powerful it is with Xenagod even though the card is mediocre at best in any other deck. Good aggro cards become seriously busted. Pathbreaker Ibex with just your commander out is 12 trample for 6 mana. If you have say Hydra Omnivore out you are swinging 32 trample that will reflect any damage that gets through to all other opponents and also a 19/19 trample. A Theros block God that isn't a creature is very annoying to deal with. So you can consistently count on having the ability each combat. Your big dumb beaters will routinely get killed, but Xenagos grants haste along with the buff so you can get at least one hit in most of the time. The deck isn't for people who feel bad about swinging for half of someone's life in a single hit early. But if you have ever wanted to swing lethal on turn 4 because you got the perfect acceleration hand Xenagod is your man. (ask PookandPie about how much he loves Heroes' Bane , he ended up stopping it but what was a $60 deck at the time had no right to swing lethal that early.)

I have found that some of the most amazing Animar cards are Clone effects. Each time you Clone the Master Biomancer you double the number of counter +2. Dack's Duplicate on a Hydra Omnivore is crazy.

By tax, do you mean having to pay for each creature attacking? If so, Nacatl War-Pride is my go to for that situation. Ypu only have yo declare 1 attacker and use kamahl and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx to take someone out. Another option in a group game is using Hydra Omnivore against the player with the least defenses and making it big, then you can damage the tax player indirectly. As far as other suggestions, you can opt out cards like Krosan Grip or Unravel the Aether for creatures that blow up artifacts and enchantments, it would make it easier to tutor for those effects. Bane of Progress could be really good if it's a continuous problem even though I don't like having to blow my own stuff up.

There's quite a few cards that are specifically in the deck for better interactions within my playgroup that can be changed out for more efficient ways to get big mana. I've been looking at adding Umbral Mantle as a third option for infinite mana and Thousand-Year Elixir as a way to speed up tapping my dorks and potential for big mana with the extra untap. Hopensome of these help. Otherwise hit me back and come up with more ideas to fight the problem.
