Draw cards equal to the power of target creature you control.
Soul's Majesty Discussion

Return of the Wildspeaker is nice and could be worth running over or alongside Soul's Majesty and Instill Energy might be better than Mark of Fury since it grants pseudo-vigilance and stays around for the +2/+2.

Where is your card draw?! With such few lands, and only 4 rocks, I find it impractical for your to get Xenagos out earlier than Turn 4. Yes, there are G-d hands with Sol ring and what not, but this deck looks like it will crumble if opponents run interaction. Idk what your meta consists of, but Garruk, Primal Hunter , Soul's Majesty , Lifeblood Hydra , Lifecrafter's Bestiary , Momentous Fall , Return of the Wildspeaker , Sylvan Library would all be good additions.
Your creature count seems low for a Xenagos deck. I would recomend...
Helm of the host is Winmore 100%. Asceticism is cool, but paying for Xenagos T4, Asceticism T5 gets destroyed only for you to play a beater on T6 and have it removed sucks because you just lost a turn (tempo) to a piece of removal that usually costs less than 3. If anything, I would cut it for beaters with built in protection (like seige and carnage). The easiest way to kill a Xenagos deck is by murdering it creatures, thereby cutting all your sources of drawing and winning by beating them to death. If you want to still include protection spells in this slot, I would recommend Blossoming Defense or Heroic Intervention . While they are 1 time use, they are cheap to play so you can play a beater and hold up protection.
Questing Beast seems like a meta pick, if you have lots of walkers to deal with keep it, otherwise, seems weak.
Hydra Omnivore paints a target on your back. You can use politics to save your creature from the opponent who has removal by attacking a different opponent, but omnivore doesn't make that possible.
Worldspire wurm is 11 mana for a big beater than makes some dudes, should replace with something that comes down earlier or more impactful (Kozilek, terrastadon, etc...). I know you can cheat him in with amulet and piper but that always inst availble and even then that is weak.
I would cut every single Planeswalker you have, they are not impactful enough to justify their slots. Arlin and Samut might be good enough to keep, but the remaining definitely not. Domri is weak removal and weak card draw. Viven's flash is useless in Xenagos, and her other 2 abilities are weak as well. Xenagos reveler doesn't help much since you aren't going wide in this deck.
If you want more cuts or ideas, let me know. If your meta doesn't run interaction, then I am jealous.

Defense of the Heart - run Shared Summons instead Godsire you could cut for Giant Adephage which gets super busted Mirari's Wake could be cut for Dictate of Karametra Platinum Emperion is just cringe Emrakul, the Promised End doesn't get a cast trigger if put on the field with your commander Balefire Dragon could be replaced by Steel Hellkite Nylea, God of the Hunt can be replaced by ramos
most of these are for budget balance
I want to see Overwhelming Stampede , End-Raze Forerunners and Soul's Majesty in here somewhere. They'd help out pretty well. You also need some more lands but only like 2 or 3. I suggest cutting some of the less impactful big bois.

It gives them a 3/3 instead of an 0/4 or a plain forest. Shutting down problematic commanders like yisan and animar is much easier when they cannot use what you gave them to still pressure you. I don't under estimate cantrip effects. However, the vast majority of the time it's just better to play a stronger cards. Also, Soul's Majesty should probably be replaced by Return of the Wildspeaker it has the same mana cost, is an instant, and a sudo overrun effect for non-humans. I do think you've built a solid deck; just wanted to know you're reasoning for card selection not trying to down your build or anything. I've built this too and spent quite a few hours tuning and developing a primer I need to reformat.

You are probably missing the Top End token producers like Avenger of Zendikar or Tendershoot Dryad . Another alternative is Mycoloth to get a ton of tokens on the field. Another thing would be to include stuff that ends the game in one swing. You have Ojutai that grows bigger and bigger why not include a Overwhelming Stampede to give all your tokens his power and toughness and trample. Another thing would be Beastmaster Ascension or End-Raze Forerunners . A more hated variant of this would be Triumph of the Hordes .
Protection is also needed so i would include Heroic Intervention Rootborn Defenses that save your board the most scary thing for a token deck: Board Wipes. Asceticism and Privileged Position saves you spot removal trouble. If you don't like enchantments Archetype of Endurance is an alternative.
Card Draw should also not be neglected. I would play around your commanders and your win conditions. Ojutai gets huge pretty quickly so stuff like Rishkar's Expertise and Soul's Majesty or Garruk, Primal Hunter should give you the explosiveness to draw into your win conditions. Another thing to consider would be Huatli, Radiant Champion , easily the best Planeswalker you can put into a token deck and draws you cards for every creature that enters the battlefield. Exactly what we want for deck like this.
I also would cut Helm of the Host and rather play Bramble Sovereign cause helm is really scary and fragile too. You can easily waste 2 turns paying 9 mana only for your creature you want to equip it too being destroyed. Another thing i see is Entreat the Angels as a problem. It is a super good card but you have not much top of the library manipulation so i would cut it for Divine Visitation , does exactly what you want create 4/4 angels for every token you make. Also another thing to include and that is easily on of the best win condition if it hits turn 2 is Luminarch Ascension .
That's all for now from me, if you have any more questions just hit me up with them!

Sheltered Thicket has two types, mountain and forest, so it helps with Kird Ape . Maybe you can focus on your lands to surprise your adversary with Primal Bellow , you may try Ash Barrens or Evolving Wilds . Or, following the shout style: Roar of the Crowd .
In fact this deck can use a lot of cards ideas. So I believe you will maintain it opened for new ideas you may have for quite a while.

You know killer_eye, I think that is a fantastic include. In this deck, it's a strictly better Soul's Majesty , 'cause it's an instant, and the two modes. I tried putting it in yesterday, and it didn't work. I guess the card was just spoiled, so TappedOut didn't have enough time to upload it into its database?
Anyways, yes! This is a must-include. Thanks for reminding me!

Deck's really cool. But I have a few suggestions (Take them with a grain of salt)
Add: Nyx Weaver , fills your graveyard and can get you back an important card. Soul's Majesty , A worse Rishkar's Expertise is still pretty good. Winding Way , Helps fill up your hand and your graveyard. Springbloom Druid , Ramps, provides a creature to convoke, and puts a land in your graveyard to help delve Hogaak. Worm Harvest / Spider Spawning , Puts lands into your graveyard and makes a bunch of tokens. Also can be played from your graveyard when you inevitably mill them. Feed the Pack , Turn's Hogaak into a ton of wolves which you can use to convoke him. Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord , benefits from having a big graveyard and can sacrifice hogaak or any other creature to take out chunks of people's life totals. Regrowth , just a nice card to have when you're milling yourself.
Remove: Golgari Brownscale , it only dredges 2 cards at a time, and takes up your draw to do so. I think it's too slow. Necropolis Fiend , This card's just going to eat away at your graveyard, for not much payoff. You want your graveyard full for cards like Hogaak and Izoni. Slitherhead , Just doesn't do much to be honest. You can do better than a single +1/+1 counter. Viscera Seer , Doesn't do much either. It's basically 2 mana to draw a card, the unearth isn't going to useful very often. Vilis, Broker of Blood , Awesome, awesome card. But you don't have any ways to reanimate him or get him into play otherwise, and 8 mana seems like a lot for a deck with 35 lands. Doom Blade , Not the worst, but there's some better removal spells that aren't any more expensive. Immortal Coil , This card is only good if your graveyard has more cards in it than your life total, and it also is probably going to eat at your graveyard a lot.
