consider the black tutor cards, such as Imperial Seal Demonic Tutor Grim Tutor Vampiric Tutor

if you like cascade, cards that manage the top cards of your deck such as Sensei's Divining Top are a must. If you use the cascade creatures, the lower cost cascade creatures will fetch your different tutor cards while the higher cost ones will hopefully cast your large creatures for free if you have sufficent topdeck manipulation.

Sylvan Library topdeck manipulation at it's finest, and draw if you're willing to pay for it.

Birthing Pod may allow you to abuse etb effects and toolbox your elementals.

Conspiracy is another card you can use to force the elemental tribe on non-elementals to abuse your effects.

Chromatic Lantern is a mana rock that fixes you in all of your colours at once.

I don't remember any off the top of my head, but enchantment recusion cards for your Maelstrom Nexus that thing is a huge target and should be a cornerstone for your deck in my opinion. if it goes off it nearly doubles the value of any card you play. but you need the tutors to get it in your hand.

Maelstrom Archangel decent beatstick, brings out cards cheaply.

your lowest cost green creature for Green Sun's Zenith is your Maelstrom Archangel. certainly a good target, but unfortunately it'll likely be the "only" target. also curious why you didn't include Bringer of the Black Dawn or Fist of Suns.

My favorite angel is probably Avacyn, on account that Sorin is my favorite planeswalker so... But other than that I love Maelstrom Archangel or Akroma, Angel of Fury. I love Akroma's artwork but Maelstrom is a boss.

Prismatic Omen is a good choice for five color deck, IMO. Darksteel Ingot, Coalition Relic, Chromatic Lantern, Mana Bloom, Mox Amber and Pillar of Origins are super great Mana fixers, and I love Path of Ancestry/Cavern of Souls in this deck. I am glad you included Maelstrom Archangel, great angel!

consider rebound spells like Emerge Unscathed and Distortion Strike...ordeal auras are sweet too like Ordeal of Thassa and Ordeal of Nylea...... idk what the deal is with you Commander.... would you consider an alternate 5 color commander like Maelstrom Archangel just to at least have some kinda benefit/synergy?

This is a wicked dope deck. Your mana fixing seems great, surprisingly! My advice is to find more ways to cheat things into play.

Check out Maelstrom Wanderer, as you could cast it for 5 and cascade twice for 8. Unexpected Results might just be a fun card to throw in there. Defense of the Heart is two free beasties for a 4 mana cost enchantment. Quicksilver Amulet, Dragon Arch, and Elvish Piper are all much cheaper alternatives to your commander's ability.

For other mana fixings, look at Ramos, Dragon Engine's ability. While it's not exactly fixing, Maelstrom Archangel can do similar things as Ramos if you get her swinging. Anyway, I hope this helped. Good luck!

Thanks for your feedback! I definitely think that Atraxa, Praetors' Voice, Maelstrom Archangel, and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth spike this deck's price way up. There are plenty of more budget friendly options such as Winding Constrictor, Vorel of the Hull Clade, or even Fusion Elemental. I definitely don't think you should remove the expensive mana ramp/fixers, such as Chromatic Lantern or Crystalline Crawler because they really help this deck. The mana base is pretty much the sole reason that this deck is above 150 USD, the typical budget deck cost, BUT this is a five color deck and there are definitely plenty of even cheaper land options, such as the khan tri-lands, I just happened to choose a slightly less budget mana base.

I hope that my response helps you!
