Your commander costs less to cast for each time it's been cast from the command zone this game.
Whenever your commander is put into the command zone from anywhere, draw a card.

Will do for sure!
About Myth Unbound , I understand that I can draw a card when transforming our precious Nissa.
But what will happen to the untransformed Nissa? Will she stay in the command zone?
If not, will the commander tax be increased since she'll have left the zone once? Will it count as casted twice?
What I mean is.
Nissa is exiled for transformation, I draw and place her transformed on the battlefield.
Nissa planeswalker gets destroyed and goes back to the command zone.
Will it cost 4 before the myth unbound reduction?

I am now testing Verity Circle and it usually range from ok to great ( I was able to draw my deck as some one did a Kiki/Zealous combo) and found/cast an instant speed board wipe to steal the win!
Guardian Project is great also but rely on having a sac engine available to really shine.
I have tested Kefnet the Mindful but it is just not good enough compare to Thrasios. ( he is never a creature for me, at least the triton can attack on an empty board for a trigger. )
I have tested Evolutionary Leap as a sac outlet for derevi and it is not bad but would be better if the activation cost was free.
I have tested Pride Sovereign as another token generator, he is good indeed, but he do not survive creature board wipe, so I had to cut it.
Skyward Eye Prophets effect is insane, but yes, 6 mana for a creature 3/3 with no evasion that do nothing for a turn, I had to cut him.

Don't think you need Myth Unbound b/c she's low cost already, I don't think Unstable Footing is good enough even though it's a kicker card. It might make more sense to focus on only the efficient kicker cards, and have more of a +1/+1 counter subtheme (activate Hallar fewer times for more damage). I also don't think Guttersnipe is good enough with 18 spells to activate him. So there are some cuts. Harmonize is good burst card draw, so is something like Greater Good . There's always Sylvan Library if you can afford one - it's not too bad rn.

I personally run 34 lands with a cmc of 3.64, but sometimes have a game I wished i included one more. You have a few more rocks and dorks in your deck, so perhaps 34 is fine. But the cmc is a bit deceiving, I think your creature cmc cuts around 4, but the tutors and cheap removal you run holds it low.
On cuts, I think your deck looks in a good shape. Just quite spread with good stuff. You perhaps can narrow your focus down some more towards your wincons, especially since you run so much tutors.
E.g. Abzan Battle Priest is a good herald, but lifelink adds nothing to your strategy apart from survival.
How often do you play Necropolis Regent over other stuff? She's good, but I'd probably played something else for 6. You already adopted my Rite of Replication plan, Mirror Mockery does nearly the same thing on Reyhan attacks.
Is Tymna the Weaver the optimal choice for card draw here? It's not that you run bleed effects.

Hi mate, have you tested the following cards:
Kefnet the Mindful as a second thrasios effect.
Evolutionary Leap as a sac outlet for derevi and provides card advantage when repeatedly saccing derevi or tokens to it.
Pride Sovereign as another token generator
How have you been finding Skyward Eye Prophets ? The effect seems quite strong but at 6 mana and needing to wait a turn before activating is it too much investment?

The competitive meter is a very finicky tool. I've seen non-material changes, such as making a deck foiled, with no other modifications, result in a several percentage point difference.
The biggest improvement you can do for your deck is fix the mana base. You have far too many lands that enter the battlefield tapped or do not untap normally, which is going to drastically hurt your performance. I would suggest removing these lands and replacing them with cards such as the Pain Lands (ex. Adarkar Wastes ), Check Lands (ex. Glacial Fortress ), Filter Lands (ex. Skycloud Expanse ; Mystic Gate ), and Bond Lands (ex. Sea of Clouds ). You can also run some rainbow lands, such as Mana Confluence and City of Brass .
High Alert would be a solid card to add, giving you another method of allowing your defenders to attack.
Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive will make most of your creatures unblockable.
Stalwart Shield-Bearers makes your creatures bigger.
Tree of Redemption can become a 0/30 or so fairly easily.
Fortified Area gives all your walls Banding, which allows them to prevent opponents from having damage Trample over to you.
Sunscape Familiar acts as pseudo-ramp by reducing the cost of your spells.
You can cut the following:
Myth Unbound does relatively little for you.

Oooh. Okay, I was thinking the other way around. But umm... isn't that a really fast way to make your commander tax INSANE? Myth Unbound would help but not a ton.
