I'd highly recommend: Quietus Spike, Scytheclaw and Daretti, Scrap Savant. You have too few mountains, only 3 in the 99 deck. You won't be able to cast your commander, believe me. Overall is a nice deck +1.

You could consider something more along the lines of what I ran for Anya: Of Angels and Shadows
Since the goal for Anya is to get one or more opponents to <20 life as quickly as possible, it's key to get damage through, especially with Quietus Spike and/or Scytheclaw. I personally went with shadow and equipment route as almost no one runs shadow, making those creatures effectively unblockable, plus if someone lacks flying you can toss it on an angel such as Anya if needs be.

Well, I wouldn't forget the sword cycle (minus the Body and Mind one, like me), Umezawa's Jitte, Blade of Selves (it's a great first target for cards like Stoneforge Mystic), Scytheclaw if you want another Quietus Spike, Swiftfoot Boots, and Lightning Greaves. Other than that, I doubt the token support would do better than going hard on equipment, since doing a token deck would kind of be pulling the deck away from what it's good at. Granted, I'm playing more equipment than most people would feel comfortable playing, but it's because I was getting bored with the deck leaning more into good stuff rather than a dedicated theme. Playing more wraths seems completely reasonable though!

Some Voltron staples that are relatively cheap: Bastion Protector, Divine Reckoning, Silverblade Paladin, and Shielded by Faith. Retether and Open the Vaults can also be good if there's not too much graveyard hate in your meta. Eidolon of Countless Battles and Helm of the Gods would also be good, since you have so many enchantments.
I used to have Holy Mantle in my voltron deck, but every time I wanted to cast it, the mana cost felt too awkwardly high. I eventually ended up replacing it for Spirit Mantle, as many are wont to do. Unquestioned Authority can also be good, since it doesn't provide any buffs but does replace itself. Since you have a lot of of equipment with high equip costs, Sigarda's Aid may also help. In my Voltron deck, I find that playing and then equipping Equipment can get a little mana-intensive.
Scytheclaw is also a fun budget card, especially with protection.
Lightmine field is an interesting card that I didn't know about. It may actually fit well in some of my decks.

I didn't catch that you had also asked for individuals to recommend what to cut as well. Here's where I would start:
Song of the Dryads
Imprisoned in the Moon
Bident of Thassa
Jace, Unraveler of Secrets
These are a few cards I think you can cut/replace with cards that provide more support of your theme or provide additional mana fixing and acceleration.

Muddle the Mixture, Negate, Disdainful Stroke, Clever Impersonator, Leyline of Anticipation (Vedalken Orrery for budget reasons), Dissolve, Soldevi Excavations, Scytheclaw, Quietus Spike, Walking Atlas, Terrain Generator

Hahaha I figured you'd keep this build I like it a lot! I just gave myself an idea for a Saskia shell with Angels/Demons/Dragons galore.
This is VERY loose for a recommendation, but Nova Chaser always has a place in my heart. Championing an elemental may seem feasible, and I guess It's just another big dude that hits for 20.
You might be interested in Scytheclaw as an equipment as well. Especially since it's another living weapon. It might actually work better than Heartless Hidegatsu, since it won't affect you, and Hidegatsu's ability doesn't trigger Saskia (I don't think).
