I'd start by looking at these creatures: Archon of Valor's Reach, Celestial Ancient, Daxos of Meletis, Elderwood Scion, Emeria Shepherd, Hydra Omnivore, Loyal Drake, Loyal Guardian, Nylea's Colossus.

Then I'd look at your auras, you probably don't need a ton to get a lot of value from your commander: Empyrial Storm, Phyrexian Rebirth, Angelic Chorus, Epic Proportions, Ground Seal, Myth Unbound, Octopus Umbra, Spawning Grounds, Vow of Flight.

kingquark No problem!

Krosan Grip is great due to the split second clause as it's pretty relevant. Beast Within is generally an amazing card, but because you have access to other colors their are other cards that do it so much better such as Assassin's Trophy, Abrupt Decay, Maelstrom Pulse, and Vindicate.

Another card you can maybe run is Orim's Thunder.

Cards I would consider cutting would be: Shamanic Revelation (Too slow), Woolly Thoctar, Voltaic Brawler, Moltensteel Dragon, Herald of Torment, Bloodbraid Elf, and Accorder Paladin (All of them are a bit underwhleming in terms of value and a bit vanilla).

Some adjustment for budget I would consider are: Iroas, God of Victory, Gisela, Blade of Goldknight , Dauntless Escort, Forgotten Ancient, Shalai, Voice of Plenty, Mirror Entity, Taurean Mauler, Hydra Omnivore (Hidden tech, it also does additional damage to the player you chosen!), Tana, the Bloodsower (Also makes additional tokens due to hitting two players!), Urabrask the Hidden, Gahiji, The Honored One, Hero of Bladehold, and Hanweir Garrison.

Hope that gives an idea that could help!

My buddy runs a xenagos deck and there are two cards that are absolutely terrifying when they hit the board Blood Mist and Hydra Omnivore if you are doing multiplayer.

Don't think you need Jenara or Knotvine Paladin since you have a great attacker as a commander already. Serra Ascendant would be amazing though. Maybe even Hydra Omnivore to spread the damage.

Nantuko Mentor can pump your exalted attacker by a lot.

Citadel Siege can grow your creatures more or tap opponents' creatures more reliably than Angelic Benediction.

Dauntless Escort doesn't work if you have Angel of Jubilation in play. You could try Teferi's Protection or Heroic Intervention instead.

One thing you are missing is card advantage. Rishkar's Expertise, Hunter's Insight, and Hunter's Prowess can help draw cards from a big exalted creature. Beast Whisperer and Shamanic Revelation are great for drawing cards from all your creatures.

Yes. Between the counter and the Triumph, Hydra Omnivore will be a 10/10 with trample and infect. As long as you attack someone with no available blockers and they don't somehow redirect or prevent the damage another way, that player will take the damage in the form of 10 poison counters. The Hydra's ability triggers and goes on the stack, state-based actions cause the first player to lose the game due to poison counters, and then the ability resolves if it hasn't been prevented some other way, and each other opponent will take 10 damage in the form of poison counters, and also lose.

I cast a Hydra Omnivore and give it a +1/+1 counter using Oran-Rief, the Vastwood. On the following turn I attack after I cast Triumph of the Hordes and target an opponent with no blockers available. So now I effectively hit everyone with 10 poison counters, yes??

Arcanis the Omnipotent never sticks at our table. Love Arixmethes, Slumbering Isle, not sure if you noticed or not but the remove a counter ability is a MAY ability, you can leave it as a land if you want. Forgotten Ancient, Chasm Skulker, Hydra Omnivore, and Overbeing of Myth feel a little out of place to me but I'm not sure. This is a cool deck bud.

I will say that Arcanis the Omnipotent(or anything that can bounce itself) + Paradox Engine + Doubling Cube + a bunch of mana is infinite mana. Then you can also can hit up something like Helix Pinnacle if you want haha.
