Pretty good! I like that the whole deck is very affordable. I used your deck as a point of reference while building my own Thromok deck: Thromok's All-You-Can-Eat Buffet. Just a few suggestions:

  • While Warstorm Surge and Mage Slayer are indeed formidable picks for a Thromok deck, you mentioned in your description that using them with Thromok enables you to win via Commander Damage. However, state that only combat damage counts as Commander Damage, and the damage produced by these two cards is not combat damage. You're right about Whispersilk Cloak enabling a win via Commander Damage though.
  • Unless you're trying to keep the running total price just barely under a certain threshold, I'd upgrade Xenagos from a "maybe" to a "definitely," given his sheer mana production potential in a token deck, and also for that handy extra token when you need it. As for what to pull to make room for it, my first thought is a lesser ramp card with the same CMC, namely Explosive Vegetation.

I'm a huge fan of Mage Slayer in big beaty decks!

Also Dragon Arch Cryptic Gateway Belbe's Portal Cryptic Gateway and my favorites Hunting Ground and Lure of Prey are all ways to cheat out your big guys!

Also since you're going with low mana cost and tempo, I'd suggest adding in Hero's Blade. Just a straight buff for your commander once it is in play. Also, what about Mage Slayer? Is it just win-more, or is triple strike relevant? I feel like you could one-shot people with that, even though it doesn't count as commander combat damage. Then again, maybe not. Just wondering if you'd thought about it.

You most likely want cards that add extra combat steps especially with xenagos. My recommendations include Aggravated Assault, and Relentless Assault, as well as cards that focus on having high p/t such as Soul's Fire and Fling (personal fav is Mage Slayer)

Soul's Fire, Fling and Mage Slayer if you're running many strong creatures

Yeah, no Fling. You need Soul's Fire.
In my Infect EDH, I've also gotten good mileage out of Chandra's Ignition, Mage Slayer, and Surestrike Trident.

Once you get your super bros going strong, you can Fling them at the opponent (alternatively Soul's Fire and Mage Slayer). Also, considering that xenagos triggers at beginning of combat, any effects that increase the number of combats each turn could mean multiple pumps from xenagos (for example Relentless Assault)

If you're running Bear Umbra you can run Aggravated Assault.

I also suggest Spirit Mantle and Holy Mantle or maybe Rogue's Passage to get in Commander damage without being blocked.

Might look into Mage Slayer as well, Angelic Gift or Nimbus Wings and Shield of the Oversoul can give flying, Messenger's Speed to give trample also Rancor.

Gift of Immortality over Shielded by Faith between the two you get more help from board wipes with gift.

And Retether.
