Bolt Bend - Redirects targeted removal, targeted draw, targeted extra turns and counters counterspells
Siege Behemoth - GG
Lmk if you're interested in other suggestions. I'm looking forward to your response

Please let me know what you think of each suggestion. Some are better than others, some are personal preference, but most are just gas. With Xenagos, everyone will be afraid because you can one-shot them pretty easily. So you need a way to fight past removal and ensure you don't get 2 for 1ed when using a burst draw spells.
So you have a lot of cheap mana which helped lower the curve to 4 which is pretty good for a Xenagos deck. I see that you only have 3 sources of draw. How exactly do you maintain gas once you dump your hand out given your ramp and then they just destroy your beater?
As someone said before, Decimate is great.
Voracious Hydra acts as a removal and a beater (or just a big beater).
Bolt Bend redirects targeted removal, targetted draw, targetted extra turns, and counters counterspells all for . It's unexpected and when they do expect it, you can bluff. Such an underrated card in Xenagos!
Ilharg, the Raze-Boar - Helps you cheat fatties and is always there for you.
Berserk - Super fun on Malignus or any fatty. Don't forget, you can use on opponents creatures too (have done so on multiple occasions)
Rancor - That 1/1 turns into a 6/1 trample pretty quickly. I like to use it on Selvala personally.
Lurking Predators - Value value value
Etali - You took him out, not sure why? Such a great value engine.
Cut temple of the false for Yavimaya Hollow.
Kozilek, Butcher of Truth - B/c who doesn't love a 24/24 hasty Annhilator 4 that draw you cards and shuffles back in?
Lifeblood Hydra - Fun with berserk!
Momentous Fall - In response to removal
Return of the Wildspeaker - In response to removal
Skullclamp - Make your mid-late game dorks useful. Can give you upside if beaters get killed
The Great Henge - Reads pay , get an amazing artifact that draws and buffs you. Lifegain is nice too

I'd consider cutting Ajani, the Greathearted, Rally to Battle, Aegis of the Heavens, and I'd look for a card draw replacement for Return of the Wildspeaker since you'll probably never draw a lot off of it. a Pull from Tomorrow or a Blue Sun's Zenith might fit. A lot of the 1-shot combat effects in commander tend to fail, or at the very least are underwhelming. They look sweet, but you're better off packing your deck with removal and effects that stay on the board. I'd keep Tower Defense and nix the rest of the instant boosts.

Heroic Intervention - Protection
Yavimaya Hollow - Expensive form of protection that fits in your landbase
Nissa, Vital Force - Next turn she ults which is DEVASTATINGLY powerful. add more lands, I know you have a relatively low(ish) avg CMC with lots of elves, but being mana screwed suchs. I would AT LEAST go to 32, preferably 34 and thats on the low end. Although it is personal preference on how you like the deck to run
There are many other better green voltron or green elf commanders. If you wish your deck to be this way, thats fine, just understand it isn't effecient. Your biggest issue is boardwipes and recovering from them as overextending can wreck you. Maybe Creeping Renaissance?
I got lots of ideas for cuts so lmk.

You, sir. I admire your earnestness.
For getting more counters, I HIGHLY suggest Yawgmoth, Thran Physician. Golgari is an excellent color combination for getting a ton of cards in your hand and a ton of mana, so you could easily go from a couple of counters to 10 in a turn. Same logic for Planewide Celebration. 7 mana for 4 counters each isn't a bad deal. Lean into green ramp. You can definitely afford to fire off 1-for-1 2-mana green ramp spells, so long as you're drawing with Tymna.
You can amplify the effects of your infect and proliferate cards with Winding Constrictor and Corpsejack Menace. Hand of the Praetors and Phyrexian Swarmlord are infect lords, so they should probably see play. Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons means that all of your infect creatures explode into deathtouching snakes when they trade in combat.
Swamp Mosquito doesn't say infect, but it has non-keyworded Infect. Suq'Ata Assassin has non-keyworded Fear, but also gives poison counters with evasion. If you want to load up on the cheapest, most efficient bodies with infect, then it might be worth running Pit Scorpion, too.
The reason why I would go for a bigger spread of bodies is that it will ultimately be more efficient to load up on instant-speed mass pump spells, rather than having to draw and cast poorly-suited cards for Commander like Giant Growth. In priority order, I'd go Return of the Wildspeaker, Overrun, Pride of Conquerors, Make a Stand, Dark Triumph, Borrowed Grace, Zealous Persecution, Fortify, Sigil Blessing.

Rules question: Does Saskia make Orhan Frost fang trigger twice? Because if it does. HOO boy. I really like this deck also :) Saskia is typically reliant on infect so it's nice to see a deck that has way more interesting combat related things. Have you considered Return of the Wildspeaker it's a great source of card draw. Also Faeburrow Elder is an insane card in 4 colors. Good luck building!

Hey man! Nice list, was that your original deck? I would consider some haste enable to get some more speed, the highlight creature for this deck would be Craterhoof Behemoth but it is really expensive. The best "cheap" haste enable is Concordant Crossroads. Just making sure your things swing as soon as the hit the board. Get a Green Sun's Zenith to fetch some of your favorite pieces, or any pieces needed to defend yourself, such as Reclamation Sage when someone puts a Torpor Orb in play.
I would dig into some wipes also, Bane of Progress might be a really good addition. You can play around it with a good ramp spells to mana rocks ratio.
I would also suggest to put more ramp cards. Depending on the power level of your opponents, you will need to keep up. Farseek Cultivate and Zendikar Resurgent, maybe? Some mana dorks can help you a lot, triggering your commander and giving you some early leads.
Anyway, happy deck building. Will look forward to play against this one!

Return of the Wildspeaker seems like a big improvement over souls majesty, instant speed and can't be fisseled by instant speed spot removal. i really love this deck, thanks for the upload. my playgroup just did a 100 dollar budget cedh challenge, i built marwin, talrand and nehab. marwyn was always a threat that had to be answered in all games played.
