Reyhan, Last of the Abzan Discussion

Reyhan, Last of the Abzan is a really useful card to include so you can "store" the counters from Kresh in case he gets spot removed/sacrificed.
Heart-Piercer Manticore might be a newer card worth including. Fling Kresh for massive damage, and surprise do it again later in the game by embalming it.
Winding Constrictor helps pile on additional counters on Kresh, and does really well with Meren in your 99 if you happen to draw her.
Yahenni, Undying Partisan is a pretty neat sacrifice outlet that also has good synergies with +1/+1 counters.

Cool build - I run a list trying to do similar things at Mazirek Counters.
Have you tested with Mycoloth? That might be fun here.
Other cards that might help with counters include Doubling Season, Hardened Scales, Winding Constrictor, Corpsejack Menace, Reyhan, Last of the Abzan, Solidarity of Heroes, and any of several hydras, like Managorger Hydra. Maybe a Nissa, Voice of Zendikar, Ajani Goldmane, or Garruk, Caller of Beasts, as well.

Looks pretty good. I have a few suggestions. Animation Module to get some cannon fodder and proliferate a single target (nice for your planeswalkers). Winding Constrictor which is similar to Hardened Scales, but works for all your counters. Contagion Engine: proliferate twice (with the added bonus of putting negative comments on your opponents). Reyhan, Last of the Abzan a good commander, but also good at getting counters and transferring them. You also have 15 ETB effects (17 if you take my suggestions). Consider Panharmonicon.

Have you tested with many cards that add bonus counters like Doubling Season, Hardened Scales, Corpsejack Menace, or Winding Constrictor? Reyhan, Last of the Abzan, might also be fun in this list. Maybe also the Ajanis and Nissa that add counters?
Have fun brewing!

Ignoring the issue of Nephilim not being a legal commander, I am not convinced he is a particularly strong one. You are paying 4 mana, spread across 4 colours to receive a 1/1 that does not influence the board the turn he is dropped. While he has the potential to grow fairly quickly, potential is useless unless actualized.
If you choose to run him, I think you should add a few more cheep cantrips (Opt, Ponder, etc.), as these will both give you card draw and pump your commander. Cheep combat tricks, such as Blossoming Defense are also quite nifty, particularly since they leave a residual power boost.
You should really add Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots to your decklist. Your commander takes a bit of effort before he gets worthwhile, and it is important that you protect your investment. You do not want him to be removed--casting a 4 mana 1/1 with no board presence is bad enough; casting the same 1/1 for 6+ mana would be painful.
Forgotten Ancient is a fairly powerful card to run in a +1/+1 counter deck.
Reyhan, Last of the Abzan would also be great for this deck. In fact, he (alongside another partner commander with synergy) would probably make for a better, more legal commander.

Double strike works to trigger Vorosh twice in one combat, so you could consider Fireshrieker and Grappling Hook. Reyhan, Last of the Abzan also helps you keep those +1/+1 counters even if Vorosh dies.

Reyhan, Last of the Abzan and Vial Smasher the Fierce- This seems like it would be pretty good. Reyhan would give you some +1/+1 counters that you can place on your own stuff to get rid of the -1/-1 that inevitably gets on your stuff depending on how you built the deck. Vial Smasher is just a good card.
Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper- would be my second choice if you can take advantage of the tokens.
If you have a consistent play group and they are willing to bend the rules you could maybe treat Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons and The Scorpion God as though they have partner. Only if you have a consistent play group though.

Deck looks great, Im building my own Mazirek deck now. Take a look at Corpsejack Menace, Reyhan, Last of the Abzan and my personal favorite Bloodspore Thrinax.Combined with Mycoloth which i see you have, these guys get a lot done. Throw in a Pathbreaker Ibex to finish 'em off.
