I love the direction you went with this deck, very original and creative.

+1 For one of the most refreshing and innovative decks I've come across on T/O.
It does take awhile to comprehend the set up and your game plan and I'm sure we've only grasp the tip of an iceberg, the mammoth mechanics and thought process that goes into conceptualizing this deck and play testing it.
I noticed the deck is light on protection package (as with many decks that devote majority of the resources to combo pieces), perhaps can consider some of these:
1) Grand Abolisher and City of Solitude - Act as a redundancy for Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir so you've a captive audience who can only watch you combo off without interrupting. City is a double edge sword though so probably only drop this the turn you want to combo off.
2) Energy Field - Hide behind this shield until your combo pieces are assembled. At worst, it helps eat up a removal which was original intended for your other combo pieces. You only have 17 Instants/Sorceries out of 100 cards so casting most of your cards (Permanents) won't blow this up.
I'm sure you've given much more thoughts for this deck as compared to me so my humble suggestions for your consideration. Hope this helps. Cheers!

I like the deck - I also saw Teysa Karlov and immediatly thought "commander looking for deck". Tossing out some suggestions below if you are interested.
kind of supprised you're not running Pontiff of Blight - it makes any token theme able to stall out and drain life from opponents at a rediculously fast rate, and the 7 toughness makes it burn and combat resistant.
Vampiric Rites is a cheap little sac outlet for token draw, as none of your triggered card draw benifits from tokens.
Ashen Rider is stupid amounts of rediculouslness (although it has a cost to match, so take that one with a grain of salt)

I guess... why not Ravos, Soultender? Ravos probably isn't part of your meta, with Sidar or any green partner it could work, and it recurs creatures from the yard very efficiently, while being a good card against blood pod, and having good synergy with pod, albeit different synergy.
Instead of Sidar you could go Reyhan, Last of the Abzan and have a pod line with Felidar Guardian into Karmic Guide into recur the cat into some Boonweaver Giant combo or something, IDK, it can even just pod into Academy Rector for a win.

Given the speed of the deck I expect that I'll have a bullseye on my playmat more often than not. I anticipate a lot of creatures attacking me and a lot of removal spells and counterspells used on my stuff. I don't think I have enough resiliency at the moment.
I haven't heard of Prowling Serpopard before. Grand Abolisher serves the same purpose, and Xantid Swarm and Silence also fill that role. Autumn's Veil also has a similar effect, and is a card I'm considering. But Serpopard definitely has some merits over the others. I'm not really sure how much and what kind of protection to include.
Dang it, I didn't see that Curio specified nonartifact until now. That's so dissapointing. If I had Aluren, I really liked Trophy Mage into Curio into any creature to bounce Mage, then re-play Mage to find Strix and win, but that doesn't work because Strix is an artifact.
Thalia, Heretic Cathar and Aven Mindcensor have been so powerful and hated in my meta that I feel I would do myself a disservice to remove them. Silent Arbiter, on the other hand, I'm less confident in. My thinking was that I usually face a lot of creature decks and boardwipes hurt me a lot. Nonetheless, it's a 4 mana card, which is probably not worth it.
I'll remove Silent Arbiter for Kalastria Healer.
EDIT: While those transmute tutors are uncounterable, they're also pretty narrow and expensive. I'll consider it, but I admit I'm skeptical.
Thanks for the help!

I recently made a finalized draft of an EDH decklist centered around banding, with Chromium at the helm (for more old-school mechanics). As the easiest way to give banding consistently is with the cycle of banding lands (for this deck, Cathedral of Serra, Unholy Citadel, and Seafarer's Quay), the deck has a historic theme. The joke of the deck is that all the legendary creatures are part of a band, so after I put the deck together I was planning to alter all of them with simple clipart-ish instruments. My question is: based on the art and character of each card, what instrument should I paint?
Some of them are fairly simple, like Ayesha Tanaka. It's not a stretch to say she's singing, so I could paint a little microphone next to her. Odric, Lunarch Marshal could be playing a cello. Although recognizability is important, I'd like a lot of different instruments. The sillier, the better. Any ideas?
All legendary creatures in the deck Show
The Scarab God (I'm thinking maracas?)
Demonlord Belzenlok (accordion?)
Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign (trumpet?)
Sorin, Solemn Visitor (he can't turn into a creature but it'd still be neat)

Given your affinity for recursion is there a reason you didn’t want to have Ravos, Soultender as your b/w commander?
