I would make the commander ability more reliable by keeping the amount of useless small creatures on a minimum and rather use noncreature cards that can become or produce creatures instead. For example you could use Mishra's Factory, Blinkmoth Nexus, Inkmoth Nexus (preferrably with Crucible of Worlds) or Drake Haven and other token producing noncreature cards. Then only use creatures in the deck which you want to show up when revealing with the commander...
You could also play additional similar effects, Proteus Staff, Polymorph and so on. And among the big creatures you should consider playing Blightsteel Colossus and some Eldrazi Titans, because they win more than most of the creatures you currently use.

dlamars: My Talrand deck was a "Polymorph bomb" style deck utilizing 5-6 big creature bombs like Tidespout Tyrant, Stormtide Leviathan, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, ect. I would tuck a drake to put one of those beasties out using Polymorph/ Proteus Staff. Most of the time people would just scoop from all the bounce effects I ran. If that didn't work then a Runechanter's Pike strapped to a drake was for backup. Coat of Arms could've worked too.

I really like Marrow Shards. I forgot about Darksteel Mutation as well because it is an enchantment, but both would fit in sideboard as options.
I have been considering Crovax, Ascendant Hero as an Elesh Norn Lite, and Requiem Angel since I could Secure the Wastes a bunch of chump blockers that would trade and become retaliating flyers. I think those would make solid mid game finishers for slightly less mana than Norn. I didn't want too many actual creatures in the main so that I had access to as many stall tactics as possible and to keep the ridiculous polymorph theme.
As I type this I just found a few ridiculous cards that really make this viable since it would get me to my few creatures fast and cheap... wow, can't believe I overlooked all of these...
Polymorph would turn one of my own tokens into either Elish Norn, Godhead, or Archetype of Courage. That's nuts. And that art? Are you kidding, so much lol. Totally mainboard worthy.
Mass Polymorph is absolutely going in sideboard where I can put exactly five creatures in the deck and then after playing Increasing Devotion on turn five I can play Mass Poly on six and have my end-game board automatically.
I overlooked Jalira, Master Polymorphist originally because it wouldn't let me get to Elish Norn, but now I'm seeing things differently and could make a case for her in the sideboard.
Thank you for spinning the gears again, I'm looking at this under a whole new light and now I'm even more excited to try it :)
Thanks for having a look and supporting the idea.

It is important to note that Polymorph neither exiles nor allows you to search. It attempts to destroy the creature and then the creatures controller reveals card until they reveal a creature. This is important because indestructible can save the creature, and you don't get t choose the creature you get.
