This deck looks killer. My suggestions would be to add Expedition Map to get your sweet lands in your hand, and something that offers trample. O-Naginata and Haunted Cloak are cheap equipment that can get the job done. +1 from me

I'm surprised you aren't running a few more ways to give Yasova's power a little boost! Something as simple as O-Naginata, Champion's Helm, or even Rancor could give her the little boost to swipe truly huge creatures.
You might also appreciate Chamber of Manipulation as a mana-light way to swipe a creature every turn. Who cares if the creature doesn't get Haste? Feed it to Ooze Garden or Evolutionary Leap and that's still card advantage. Greater Good is another great, mana-free sac outlet that can earn you a lot of cards from big creatures.
I'm also going to mention that I think every EDH deck that's three or more colours should run City of Brass and Mana Confluence - considering you have 40 life to work with, they're essentially Command Towers #2 and #3. Path of Ancestry is basically just a superior Frontier Bivouac, though you can likely find room for both. And hey, maybe Keldon Necropolis as one last sac outlet that's really tricky to blow up?

Cool deck, even though I prefer non-competitive multiplayer EDH.
What about Silent Arbiter? Seems like it was made for you.
Also, I see you run a lot of evasion enamblers (good). What about Trailblazer's Boots? Almost everyone has at least a nonbasic on the field.
Champion's Helm is a good buff + protection.
Argentum Armor is very heavy, but hits like a truck.
Consider these cards, I think at least some of them would go a long way in adding competitiveness to your deck. If you want to see an artifact centric Voltron (and other good equipments), feel free to take a look here: Equipment Mastery! (Bring BOROS in EDH)

Regarding Seat of the Synod with your Trinket Mage - aside from the 3 targets: Mana Crypt, Sensei's Divining Top, and Sol Ring, O-Naginata will be a valid target once it's added. But I get wanting more options.
Sphinx of Magosi's draw is cheaper than your commander's, but in thinking of that - what would you say to good ol' Training Grounds. Normally I wouldn't recommend it for a deck with such few activated abilities with colorless mana in them, but Kefnet the Mindful is your commander, so it would be relevant at almost every stage in the game. Again, not sure what I would suggest to cut for it though.
As for Nezahal, Primal Tide being cut for Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, that might be a good idea. However, Nezahal, Primal Tide is almost impossible to get rid of. In that regard it might warrant playtesting each to see which one outperforms the other for you.
I also read Kefnet the Mindful and I did not realize he returned a land as well. Patron of the Moon or Walking Atlas could kind of off set the negative side of that. Still stumped as to what to suggest to take out.

ShikiTen, Thank you for the up vote and feed back!
I like O-Naginata and considered running it for the reasons you stated, but the lifelink and trample are pretty important. Trample helps me get around chump block fliers, and I dont know of too many other equipment that give the power boost i want plus trample. I want to run Blink of an Eye but am having a hard time cutting something for it. I may just put it in place of Into the Roil since I have a foil copy LOL Kami of the Crescent Moon is in over the mine because its a blocker. I lack creatures in this deck, so I needed a body that gives me cards. He is not great though, he dies to everything lol. I run Sphinx of Magosi as a back up beater. His ability to draw cards is cheaper than kefnets, and he gets bigger every time I activate. Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur is amazing, though, and I do think he would be a great fit. He gives me control and a full grip. Maybe I take out Nezahal, Primal Tide? Saprazzan Skerry is in here for a turn 2 Kefnet. It probably should just be Crystal Vein, its better in any period of the game since it comes in untapped and can be sacked at any time to make 2 mana. As for Seat of the Synod, the only reason its in here is for a Trinket Mage target. Its a back up target for sure, but it just insures that I will have something to search for.

Loving the idea behind this.
You might want to consider replacing Loxodon Warhammer for O-Naginata. You lose the lifelink but you can cast & equip for the same cost as casting Loxodon Warhammer leaving more mana available to you.
Sphinx of Magosi could be upgraded to Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur netting you much greater card advantage without requiring mana to invest on drawing outside of an extra 4 mana cost to play. The best part is his flash so you can leave your mana open until just before your next turn.
I am slightly puzzled by Saprazzan Skerry. Coming into play tapped & having to sacrifice later overall nets you no extra mana, in fact after it's sacrificed, unless you had Terrain Generator already on the field doing its thing, you lose mana overall due to the permanent loss of that land. Might just be better to make it an Island. Seat of the Synod also dies to artifact removal, which is much more common than land destruction. Also, might just be better off being an Island. (I speak from personal experience on this because I used to use artifact lands to help with metalcraft, but too often I just wound up behind on my mana game.)
Apologies for the novel. Seriously though, love the deck! +1 from me.

This looks fun! I've considered building a Traxos deck since he was spoiled :)
I run a (Boros) Voltron list that you might get some equipment suggestions from (Judgment Day: Avacyn the Purifier EDH | *PRIMER*), but my first suggestions would be upgrading the equipment list as much as possible. Unblockability is a big deal for this deck, so Trailblazer's Boots and Prowler's Helm would be some of my first suggestions. Beyond that, Grappling Hook is another way to give double strike along with a creature kill to boot, and O-Naginata is a cheap and efficient way to pump power even further (almost into 2-hit range). Hammer of Nazahn gives protection and auto-equips.
Paradox Engine would be fantastic here, as an additional way to untap Traxos and as a fantastic ramp engine. You might also benefit from some stax engines (Tangle Wire, Winter Orb, Static Orb, Sphere of Resistance...) to lock down others' boards while you go to town with Traxos.
I hope this helps! :)
