Whenever Rapacious One deals combat damage to a player, put that many 0/1 colorless Eldrazi Spawn creature tokens onto the battlefield. They have "Sacrifice this creature: Add 1 to your mana pool."
Here are some thoughts:
Other ways to trick creatures out with your colors:Triassic Egg , Reya Dawnbringer , Emeria, The Sky Ruin , Resurrection , Reincarnation , Sun Titan (though not many of your permanents are cmc 3 or less).
Add some scrying and deck setting to take full advantage of Mayael the Anima . You want to be sure there's a creature at the top of your library before activating her ability.Crystal Ball , Sensei's Divining Top , Sylvan Library , Reclaim
I consider removing some of your "finishing spells" like Eldrazi Conscription and Overwhelming Stampede . They could kill off a player or two, but your deck is filled with trampling and flying fatties, so making them that much bigger seems a bit redundant. I would focus more on getting them out and protecting them when they're out. They're all pretty capable of killing without a boost.
Your mana curve is a little top heavy, so if you take some of those spells out, you could add in some lower cost blockers or mana ramp/mana reduction for early game:Thornscape Familiar , Cloud Key , Helm of Awakening , Rapacious One
Planeswalkers are cool and do cool things. Keep them in if you like them as long as their abilities provide some sort of synergy. Careful with having too many on the board at once in a multiplayer game because they will draw a lot of attention even if they aren't using aggressive abilities.
Nice deck! I thought you had it finished out? This is only 20 cards.
I few powerful cards that you could use to finish this off could be:
Gratuitous Violence - Mimic Vat - Insurrection - Thundermaw Hellkite - Rapacious One - Ruric Thar, the Unbowed - Giant Adephage - Lurking Predators - Defense of the Heart - Asceticism - Green Sun's Zenith - Kessig Wolf Run - Skarrg, the Rage Pits - Miren, the Moaning Well - Guttural Response - Hull Breach - Savage Twister - Pit Fight - Fling - Soul's Fire - Feed the Pack
Sylvan Primordial - it was banned
While they may be good, most of those cards don't actually do anything. You're looking for utility in addition to power. Not just beats.
I like your creature tutors -> maybe consider Mwonvuli Beast Tracker ?
Skarrg Goliath standard trampling fatty with bloodrush for utility
cards that give multiple attack phases get out of hand with xenagos (multiple triggers) -> Seize the Day , Hellkite Charger , Scourge of the Throne , Aggravated Assault , Relentless Assault , or World at War
Strionic Resonator for the same reason
Lightning Greaves blocks xenagos on your own creatures
Kodama's Reach another cultivate
i would say Journey of Discovery over armillary sphere
first, i like this deck, I nearly decided to build one spawn-based decksome suggestions:Beastmaster Ascension Spawnsire of Ulamog with a Rapacious One + your Shared Animosity and/or Beastmaster Ascension = infinite spawns! =)

sorry, i know its a lot of cards. i didnt notice til i was about to send it
Interesting deck, however it's a bit slow. You need more things to do early game since everything else is pretty pricy in mana that's one thing I noticed while play-testing, maybe some more ramp. In a deck with these many big dudes you need at least 23 lands. Also i'd prefer Khalni Garden over Kazandu Refuge for the free plant. Could be your first drop too.
Also, there are far better cards in replace for Zhur-Taa Druid the 1 damage is great in all, but speed is essential especially if you want to get a Awakening Zone in early instead of wasting your 3rd or perhaps 4th turn on using it. Elvish Mystic and a few others can replace him.
I actually like Rapacious One over Acidic Slime mostly for the theme of the deck however he does cost 6, but if you do end up having Rap in the field he combos well with Purphoros. I do think the ooze should be replace though with something else even maybe for Broodwarden because at some point if you don't have Fresh Meat a boost to those spawns can be fatal. Also Brood Birthing is a great card too. Hope this helps! definitely following..
Less big guys. I have a wolfrun ramp deck that works reasonably well with 5 big guys vs your 10. That being said I don't count Primeval Titan which I very much suggest. Also lose the genesis waves, usually dead cards in your hand as well as a win more card, as well as the eldrazi conscription (also a win condition). I would also add some sort of red removal for early game. Also this is just my bias but I have always felt kozilek the most vulnerable of the eldrazi.
All in all-1 Kozilek, Butcher of Truth -1 Spawnsire of Ulamog -1 Blightsteel Colossus -2 Artisan of Kozilek -2 Eldrazi Conscription -2 Dreamstone Hedron -1 It That Betrays or -1 Colossus of Akros -1 Eye of Ugin (doesn't technically make mana so a dead card for much of the game)-2 Genesis Wave +2 Forest +2 Mountain +3 Pyroclasm +2 Rapacious One +2 Kozilek's Predator
