Creature — Hippo
Whenever Pygmy Hippo attacks and isn't blocked, you may have defending player play a mana ability of each land he or she controls and empty his or her mana pool. If you do, Pygmy Hippo deals no combat damage this turn and at the beginning of your postcombat main phase, you add (X) to your mana pool, where X is equal to the amount of mana emptied from defending player's mana pool this way.

Interesting deck idea. Have you considered Pygmy Hippo? I mean, "attack of the hippos" should have a couple Hippos right? Besides it's pretty dang good.

Nice deck, Vorel is pretty sweet! If you want, feel free to check out my Vorel deck, The Thirteenth Year.
I would recommend taking out Sturdy Hatchling, since you don't want to double the -1/-1 counters on it. Also, Private Research isn't useful, since the counters are put on the Aura, not on the creature, so Vorel can't double them.
I might also recommend omitting Simic Guildmage unless you have a lot more Auras in your deck, and you don't need Kavu Predator unless your play group has a lot of lifegain. Yisan Chord is a tricky card to use with Vorel, since you want to make sure you don't double his verse counters beyond the CMC of creatures in your deck. Since your highest CMC is 6, I'd recommend cutting him.

Might want Pygmy Hippo. It's got a fun ability and works as a tutor

Before I suggest more cards you could cut, I would recommend removing the sections in the description that are irrelavent, rather than list them as cut.
That aside, here are some more cuttables:Pygmy Hippo, Starfield of Nyx, Time Spiral (not really useful unless you're up against mill a lot, which is frankly a bad deck for group Commander), Sky Hussar, Concordant Crossroads, Mystic Snake, Animist's Awakening, Gilded Lotus and Thran Dynamo.
Something you should consider is that there is getting to be less and less that you can cut and feel fine doing so. To get down to 100 cards you are going to need to cut some good cards. For that however, we are likely not going to be able to help as much (It's your deck, so you will know best how you want it to play)

Soratami Savant, Retraction Helix, Pygmy Hippo, Keeper of Progenitus, Gauntlet of Power, Caged Sun, Cathars' Crusade, Lighthouse Chronologist, Angel's Trumpet, Earthcraft, and Doubling Cube I think could all be cut
