Irregular Cohort would be amazing. It could make you ready to combo off with just 1 egg instead of needing 2.
Except, unless I'm mistaken, Wheel of Sun and Moon would shot down egg triggers from all of your changeling and egg cards, the only eggs that work through WheeloSaM are the tokens Atla creates. They still trigger Atla, but the eggs on actual cards are going to be intercepted by Wheel oSaM before they can trigger Atla. Am I mistaken?

I've updated the deck by going Orzhov and adding a bunch of cheap white changelings like Impostor of the Sixth Pride , Avian Changeling , and Irregular Cohort . I've also included three copies of Brainspoil to tutor up Liliana's Contract . The deck is now much more consistent overall.

Progenitor Mimic is a cheaper Helm of the Host type effect but it’s less reliable because it triggers on upkeep instead of combat. Although this is offset by cheaper mana investment and it can target opposing creatures. As for card advantage there’s things like Mulldrifter and Phyrexian Gargantua for ETB based draw. For incremental draw there’s cards like Staff of Nin , Monastery Siege , and Arguel's Blood Fast Flip. For one off draw effects I really like Drawn from Dreams , Urban Evolution , and Game Plan . Also another sweet card in here would be Irregular Cohort . All these cards are very cheap. The mimic is around $2-$4 but that’s cheaper than helm so still worth. Anyways +1 from me and if you get a chance go check out my Pir and Toothy deck.

In that case, you still have access to Tilonalli's Skinshifter , so I would run that one, at least. Flamerush Rider triggers your commander, even if you're stuck on 4 lands, and Kindred Charge could be pretty devastating if you can consistently get 3-5 bodies out. As for the 5-drop problem, it might seem counterintuitive, but I see no reason not to just play a 4-drop that's better. They won't trigger your commander, but they do count for Thundercloud Shaman, Sunrise Sovereign, etc. I would run Two-Headed Giant and Irregular Cohort before Kuldotha Ringleader, and Desolation Giant, although that's exactly not a 5-drop. Lower down the curve, Mirror of the Forebears is solid, and Bonecrusher Giant is great. Both can be grabbed with Sun Titan, too. If you want to keep your curve high to synergize with your commander, Boonweaver Giant with Eldrazi Conscription , Borderland Behemoth , and Realm-Cloaked Giant are all on my list. Also, since you're running Boros Charm and Sunforger, as well as sac-outlets like Brion Stoutarm, Bearer of the Heavens is a pretty definitive finisher.

@Blue_Flame Thanks for the comments. I did consider (and will switch to) Irregular Cohort . The reasoning behind Sunspire Gatekeepers is the 4-toughness which make them better blockers and resistant to bolt. The cohorts are the better choice.
I will have to come up with a sideboard soon. Deck updated!

I think Irregular Cohort is better than Sunspire Gatekeepers in a deck like this, as you don't need to run Orzhov Guildgate any more to produce the 2/2 it creates. You could probably just run a mix of Scoured Barrens and Orzhov Basilica to replace them.
Also, you kind of need a sideboard, so I'll provide some suggestions for that:
