Sphere of Safety
Creatures can't attack you or a planeswalker you control unless their controller pays X for each of those creatures, where X is the number of enchantments you control.

Sphere of Safety Discussion

For playing a short time you did a nice job! But there are a few cards that you need to scrap as fast as possible (in my opinion). Those cards are Manalith and Cystbearer . For Manalith are better options and Cystbearer does not do somehting with the rest of the deck. Try Chromatic Lantern , Commander's Sphere , Mana Geode or Spectral Searchlight . Or use something like Cultivate or Kodama's Reach to ramp.
I also mis Daybreak Coronet in your deck. It is a solid aura for a low cost.
Good that you use board wipes! But what if you could protect your commander more ( Shielded by Faith )? Than boardwipes would become even beter.
I hope this helps. You are on a good way and keep having fun :)

Glacial Chasm is also great since you run a decent amount of life gain.
You also have enough enchantments to run Sphere of Safety .

try to add more enchant land like those:
Abundant Growth / Consecrate Land / Elvish Guidance / Genju of the Cedars / Genju of the Falls / Genju of the Fields / Imprisoned in the Moon / Market Festival / New Horizons / Nylea's Presence / One with Nature / Sheltered Aerie / Squirrel Nest / Urban Burgeoning / Utopia Sprawl / Weirding Wood
This way, you will be able to untap them with the +2 effect of Estrid.
Also, you should add more card to draw
Then, you should add some recursion spells like
Also, you should add some cards to protect you like
Then, you could add some cards to take permanents from opponents like

Ok. So you said you want degenerate, so... here goes.
First off, Braids, Cabal Minion is banned. So you might want to remove it.
You should either be running the fetches, including the off-color ones like Flooded Strand , or run Suppression Field ; this also is a somewhat broader and more applicable answer to planeswalkers than The Elderspell , as it has non-planeswalker target. It puts a damper on the planeswalkers, but I feel like they might be better replaced with board wipes like Wrath of God , Day of Judgment , Damnation or Toxic Deluge . When I played this general, I don't think I ran any creatures; they tend to be easily removed, but their effects may be replaced by enchantments/artifacts (ex: Thorn of Amethyst replaces Thalia, Guardian of Thraben ). Additionally, because Athreos, God of Passage is indestructible, it survives most board wipes. I recommend Erebos, God of the Dead as a second useful god; and in an Oloro meta, it seems particularly applicable. Sphere of Safety and Lightmine Field can serve as further deterrents to attackers; Maze of Ith also fits in well. Serra's Sanctum also is a powerhouse, if combined with a high-enough enchantment count. If you take the creature-less rout, I advise Night of Souls' Betrayal to remove the ability of elf- or dork-based decks to function. You might also consider Cursed Totem .
I see you have Vampiric Tutor in the maybe board. It's massively superior to Diabolic Tutor , if only because of its much lower mana cost; Imperial Seal is a strictly worse version I run in my Kess list, but it is also very good. Bitterblossom is a great inclusion, especially if you're running something like Contamination to mess with everyone's mana.
Mana Crypt is invaluable in cEDH decks. Fragmentize is a good white equivalent to Nature's Claim , especially in metas with low curves. Leyline of the Void or Rest in Peace are good techs against graveyard decks like as Gitrog, with the added advantage of allowing a win with a Helm of Obedience activation.
I've never been impressed with 1-for-1s in EDH; by that token, Mortify and Doom Blade may be on the chopping block. Utter End is alright, simply because of its universality. I'd replace these with the above boardwipes, but I also suggest Pox or Smallpox . Pox has the additional advantage of severely lowering your opponents' life totals, so ad nauseum players tend to just cry, and your Painful Quandary becomes more oppressive. Stab Wound , which is another type of 1-for-1, might be better replaced with Palace Siege . Swords to Plowshares is the single 1-for-1 I highly recommend, because of its low cost, exile-based removal, and relatively small downside.
Good luck! Stax em out.

Ukitake365 I figured that was a deterrent after I asked and thought about it lol. Hell tbh I'd say go for it. Based on how your deck is, you should outright heal over the damage dealt to you by the opponents. Another enchantment that would work as a deterrent, besides Norn's Annex , are Sphere of Safety for how many enchantments you have, and Ghostly Prison . But yeah, I'd say go for how you envision the deck playing out

For mana ramp I would add in Smothering Tithe , I’d get ahold of one anyways even if you don’t put it in the deck since it is just such a good card.
Sphere of Safety is another Ghostly prison like effect to make attacking more difficult for your opponents.

A few suggestions, and I'll try to break it down by category.
Ramp - A good rule of thumb here is cost or less (3 drop is ok if it adds more than 1 mana like Basalt Monolith, Worn Powerstone , and Coalition Relic ). Fellwar Stone , Pentad Prism , and Talisman of Progress are your best rocks you're missing. Crystal Vein and Generator Servant are also great here. Fire/Marble/Sky Diamonds, Darksteel Ingot, Commander's Sphere, and Gilded Lotus need to go. 6 out for 6 in not counting the land.
I'd also work on adding all 8 extra combat spells to the deck asap.
Cuts I'd suggest - Both Jaces, Rings of Brighthearth (does not work with Narset), Knowledge Exploitation, Mind Scult, Star of Extinction, Startled Awake, Stolen Goods, Weight of Memory, Fated Retribution, Mycosinth Latice, and the mana rocks I already suggested dropping.
