Bastion Protector, to return the favor to Sigarda, Heron's Grace for protection and transforming her into an even larger beat stick. Weathered Wayfarer because human land fetch, Diligent Farmhand for more tribal ramp. Kamahl, Fist of Krosa is the best insurance policy against board wipes you can get and provides overrun for your forces.
The biggest problem you will face is being spoiled for choices in human tribal such as tokens which you are in the best colors to exploit, control options or old fashion horde. The best advice I could give would be to pick two or three things you want your tribe to excel at and focus on those.
Also, make sure you have enough draw power to maintain steam, perhaps Staff of Nin, Mind's Eye, Sylvan Library, Magus of the Library or even Yavimaya Elder providing ramp and card draw value. These were just a few examples of what you could add to increase your draw capacity and stay in tribe.

Actually, there are two main reasons. First is to abuse Crucible of Worlds and Sun Titan so they become Card Advantage source. This engine is really interesting for me, since Monowhite struggles so much to generate Card Advantage. Surely we have other Card Advantage sources, as Mind's Eye, Skullclamp and Sword of Fire and Ice, but I think it's worth using this engine. This way we guarantee our land drops, filter our library and increase the chance of drawing a non-land card. We can recur them and sac again every turn. Also, they are useful to shuffle our library when we look at a bad top with our Sensei's Divining Top.

Hi xSHAMUSx, Contagion Engine is respectable, the -1/-1 is nice for defense. The proliferate 2 is nice. The main reason I don't play it is the CMC6 and the Activate 4. If I have 10 mana at my disposal, I should already have enough Experience and have pulled a combo. CMC10 is just too slow and too steep a cost for me.
Izzet has a tough time pulling creatures, ie: Arjun, the Shifting Flame.
Some recommendations might be:
Blue Sun's Zenith, Brain Freeze, Stroke of Genius, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, Jushi Apprentice, Enter the Infinite + Laboratory Maniac, Show and Tell + Omniscience, Arcanis the Omnipotent, Ambassador Laquatus, Grindclock, Millstone, Mind's Eye, Beacon of Tomorrows, Windfall, Wheel of Fortune, Reforge the Soul, Jace, Memory Adept, Memory Erosion, Dreamborn Muse, Jace's Archivist, Altar of Dementia + Glen Elendra Archmage + Sage of Fables, Altar of the Brood, Keening Stone, Mesmeric Orb, Mindcrank, Increasing Confusion, Tunnel Vision + Jace, the Mind Sculptor (Using his +2).
Would have to put together a preliminary build. Would need 1) Some way to survive since you'll pull threat from at least one player 2) Some way to go fast, cheap mana rocks etc to push into the big creatures.
Sorry if I duplicated any there, a couple good combos in there.
I should warn you though, in 4 player commander, it may be tough to mill all 3 opponents, you could do it, but may not be consistent. I think has better mill/control because of the .

I keep hearing/reading that people think green has trouble drawing cards. Sure, it can't really compete with blue, and you can certainly argue black comes in second, but green has great card advantage options as well. In my eyes, used correctly, they can be even better than most black tools (with the exceptions of Ad Nauseam and Necropotence which are both insane). I'm not going to go into detail, but just list you some green card advantage: Sylvan Library, Glimpse of Nature, Harmonize, Fecundity, Skullmulcher, Greater Good, Garruk, Primal Hunter, Genesis Wave, Soul of the Harvest, Primordial Sage, Recycle, Regal Force, Shamanic Revelation, Rishkar's Expertise, Praetor's Counsel, Seasons Past, Vizier of the Menagerie. Also, you have access to colorless cards like Mind's Eye, Memory Jar, Skullclamp, Horn of Greed and Slate of Ancestry. Obviously most of those cards require specific circumstances to work, like a high powered creature, a big number of creatures or lots of mana. Just select the ones that fit what your deck is trying to do and test to find the right number.

I'm going to do a major overhaul:

Your land count is RIDICULOUSLY low. I know your commander produces mana, and that you're playing lots of mana dorks, but I'm nervous about your ability to even cast them. At the very least, you will have difficulty rebuilding from a board wipe. For that reason, Heroic Intervention seems like a must here.
You have most of the good anti-blue pieces here (Hall of Gemstone, etc) but you could get great value out of Winter Orb, since you have enough mana dorks to compensate. Also, Carpet of Flowers is an oft-forgotten card that usually pulls its weight, and sometimes wins single-handed.
I really wish Conspiracy was in your colors...
Deck looks good to me! :)

An overwhelming majority of your creature cards has a high mana cost, you may want to look at ways to cheat them out. I can think of Quicksilver Amulet, Selvala's Stampede, Lurking Predators, Elvish Piper, Kaalia of the Vast, Summoning Trap, Descendants' Path.
I don't see the point of running Primal Surge if your entire deck isn't going to be permanents, but you do you. If you want to keep the deck budget than Zendikar Resurgent is a cheap mana doubler and draw engine. As a Saskia player myself, I like any Saskia deck that I see that isn't the meta aggro or token spam, so I hope you have good luck getting this deck to where it needs to be. Peace brother!
