Some free or cheap sac outlets of the artifact/enchantment variety:
Eldritch Evolution sacs and lets you trade up your creature. Same with Natural Order , no limit on CMC but restricted to green creatures. Still, pretty sweet to sac Arbor Elf for Zacama, Primal Calamity .

Got a few suggestions for you and I'll try to break it down by category.

Regarding copter: Vehicles are a newer type of card. Copter was from the first set to ever include vehicles. Compare this to OG Mirrodin and Skullclamp . Equipment started in that block, and WotC had to learn about the rich interactions equipment has. They tried to weaken it by having it give creature -1 toughness. Today, we know that this is what makes the card powerful. This is true for Umezawa's Jitte as well. I mean, they even put it into a theme deck back then because they didn't properly estimate its power.
Regarding OuaT: It's an enabler. It would propably be fine if the rest of the current standard legal green cards wouldn't be as powerful as they are. That effect without hitting lands costed G in original Kamigawa in the form of Commune with Nature . As a rare, with higher printed cost and a basically narrow condition to cast it for free, it should be fine...weren't it for everybody's non-favourite Trickster Oko.

Cool build bro. Definitely a +1 from me!
My only advice is more card draw. You're cheating Mana cost with this deck which means you're playing out your hand faster than most, which in turn means you need more card draw than most to really be consistent and also have those explosive turns this commander is typically so good at.
Luckily for you black has some great options! You are already have 3 of the best BUT Phyrexian Arena , Disciple of Bolas , and Necropotence are the only reliable sources you have. Vilis, Broker of Blood is an incredible card but should not be considered as a reliable source of card draw, but more of a win con for the late game. Bloodgift Demon is also a really cool card but he's a body that your deck won't even use since it doesn't win by combat, and 5 Mana to draw a card next turn isn't worth it. You should have AT LEAST 10 reliable sources that can be viable in the early AND late game!
Here are a few more to consider:
Those are some incredible cards but if you'd like some more ideas, check out this list that some people put together on tapped out: List of EDH Draw Cards
Its a list of all relevant draw cards in EDH.
Hope this helped!

Hi, thank you for your advices, they're precisely what i needed! First of all i know that the description is rough and approximate, when i'll arrive to 100 cards beeing sure i'll fix it once for all.
Fetid Heath , Phyrexian Tower and Diabolic Intent are surely better, and are in my wishlist for now, but i'm already investing in my Kaalia deck and except for some budget utilities (like Wake the Dead ) i prefer to wait.
Talking about the cutting (that was my biggest problem):
Cathodion is effectively the first card to remove
Pitiless Plunderer and Geist-Honored Monk have both better alternatives ( Pawn of Ulamog and Sengir Autocrat ). The second was in for giving more possibilities to get a Nim's piece of Combo and a Xathrid Necromancer target. But i think you're right and i'll cut both of them.
I think that Felidar-Restoration + Corpse Knight could be a solution if i can't pass from graveyard ( Rest in Peace & co.), but effectively it's less synergical with Teysa and all the deck. So I'll cut them.
Cutting all this i go to 100 with Teysa Karlov and Elenda, the Dusk Rose still inside: the second is not a good token generator neither is useful with his lifelink, maybe adding a Doom Whisperer to going through the deck looking for missing card? The second is a redundant, if i go infinite i don't need it, but don't you think that in a bad moment of the game a double Teysa, Orzhov Scion or Skullclamp or giving lifelink and vigilance to all the generated tokens could be a good topdeck?

I have several suggestions for you but this is a good start. I'll try to keep my recommendations budget(ish) friendly and I'll break it down by category.

Reconnaissance over Throne of the God-Pharoah. Reconnaissance allows you to attack with EVERY creature safely, deal combat damage in most situations, and have every one of those creatures untapped and ready to block by the end of combat.
It untaps to avoid bad blockers (only situation you don't deal combat damage), it untaps after first strike but before normal combat damage (handy for getting counters from Drana to your whole team and busted with Stromkirk Captain/ Stensia Masquerade ), and it even untaps after normal combat damage is dealt due to the creature being an attacking creature until the end of combat step ends (you untap in the middle of this step).
An anti-wrath measure or 2 does wonders here. Teferi's Protection if you got one... otherwise Boros Charm and Scapegoat . More card draw can also keep you out of topdeck mode... Skullclamp , Herald's Horn , and Dark Prophecy .
