This is so cool! What's the flip side of your commander?

I got some cards to suggest for this: Glory of Warfare, High Ground, Meekstone, Kindred Boon, Stalwart Shield-Bearers, Consulate Skygate, Wall of Junk, Shifting Wall, Taurean Mauler, Fog Bank, Stasis, Obelisk of Urd, Lumithread Field, Shared Triumph, and Crawlspace

if you're not having a problem with lands then I would pull Stalwart Shield-Bearers as they seem more like a neat trick than an essential part, and put 2-3 world breakers in.

Hey it's a cool deck, I like the idea! personally my favorite eldrazi is World Breaker and if budget isn't a restriction you could also try Kozilek, Butcher of Truth. I would also cut Stalwart Shield-Bearers to make room for some other cards, like perhaps another land or two?

Switching out Stalwart Shield-Bearers May not be a bad idea. Also, since both Assault Formation and Tooth and Nail are wincons, I'd suggest doing 4 of each. The odds of finding the first reaches 60% by turn 6 instead of 10 and you have a 52% chance of seeing the second by turn 4 as opposed to 42%, which is a big swing (up to 60 - 63% when using Wall of Omens.

Also, you shouldn't do 2 emrakul, you're better off with just 1. This deck has very restrictive requirements and the gain of a second emrakul just isn't worth it. Although it works when Emmy is thoughtseized, since it's legendary you can't tutor 2 if xenagos gets discarded, setting a 2 turn clock with lone emrakul as opposed to 1 turn with the wurm helping.

Also, be careful with 4x on sideboard since it limits your options, though you'll side in Autumn's Veil in most of matchup and Heroic Intervention in many cases (as it protects xenagos from Dismember during combo).

I'm sure you know how this plays better than I do, but I'd suggest Creeping Corrosion since it kills affinity, Condemn or Dawnglow Infusion to gain life against burn and scapeshift, and Mwonvuli Acid-Moss to disrupt eldrazi tron while ramping yourself. When sideboarding, cut either Perimeter Captain or Wall of Tanglecord depending on the matchup since they don't ramp or cantrip.

Most decks don't have board wipes one there main, so I could always side Sylvan Caryatid out for Wall of Roots if they are black or red since those two have the most board wipes. I might swap Stalwart Shield-Bearers out for either Jaddi Offshoot to increase the one drops, or I could put in some Path to Exile so this deck has some removal. I think it needs some playtesting to figure it out.

Mister-Magic I see your point with Sylvan Caryatid, keep in mind that -X/-X board wipes exist too like Yahenni's Expertise as well as general board wipes like Damnation. Stalwart Shield-Bearers seems greats in theory, but idk if its 100% necessary to give more toughness to other defenders that already have decent toughness. Its a tough call bro

I stumbled across Hand of the Praetors the other day, and next thing you know I'm looking at the Lord page at gamepedia. From there, here's a bunch more for your consideration:

Finally, I'm not sure how to classify these, but they're all color related: Angel of Jubilation, Caged Sun, Gauntlet of Power, Hall of Triumph, Knight of New Alara

Abrupt Decay in commander is meuh...., Necropotence is better than Underworld Connections in every way, considering you play no "beginning of the draw step" except Sylvan Library, I know Skinshifter is cool, but state base wise he's only a 1/1, if someone bolt it and you transform it in response, at the end of the turn it will still die, Maze of Ith is a most in commander against Voltron of deathtouch strategies, Brave the Sands is a good "vigilance all", in a commander with wall it's great, and Stalwart Shield-Bearers is another "Lord" for defender heavy strategy, Rolling Stones is also good if you run more defender, which you don't, good thing for normal commander.

Otherwise, great deck, I have a tiny leader similar, super fun!
