You may be an aggro wall deck (That's a sentence I never thought I'd say) but sometimes you have to get rid of the Peacekeeper or Hushwing Gryff. Path to Exile, Swords to Plowshares and Beast Within are all generic good cards.

You could also afford to draw more cards. Your commander does draw you some and you have some cards to assist that but you wanna play your two and three drop walls before that. Abzan Beastmaster is wonderfully in flavor and a personal howling mine. Sultai Flayer is an option but IDK if it's worth it. But also just generic good card draw like Soul of the Harvest, Mind's Eye, (If you have one), Shamanic Revelation, even stuff like Concentrate and Harmonize. Your deck may be running on a funky axis but that doesn't mean you should forget the essentials. In fact, they can help tie your gameplay together.

Angelic Chorus Lol. Don't know if it's good but come on. Verdant Sun's Avatar, Proper Burial too. They probably aren't worth it but it sounds funny. Dragon Throne of Tarkir is also pretty funny and works well with Arcades. Marble Titan is a meekstone with legs. Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive makes your team unblockable. And Heroic Intervention is pretty good.

You could probably cut some of the less impressive walls like Order of the Stars or Thraben Gargoyle  Flip.

Sultai Flayer and Sidisi, Undead Visier seem good for this deck.

+1, love the concept! I'd try using a few more creatures with higher toughness (like walls) in order to kill other creatures quicker.

A few ideas; Sultai Flayer; Indomitable Ancients; Meandering Towershell; Grizzled Leotau; and Wall of Junk (not sure if it's legal, but it works)

Tower Defense could also be a really fun card, essentially giving your creatures +5/+5 until end of turn for only 2 mana!

I think I'd take out Forgotten Ancient for a Goblin Bombardment. Ancient is cool, but aside from being an elemental, he doesn't really synergize too much with the rest of the deck. Bombardment makes me giddy every time I draw it, because that means I have the win in hand.

Sultai Flayer is another oddball. I like Snake Umbra A LOT in my personal build. Drawing more cards helps us get to the pieces we need without tutors (in case you're in a league or other meta that frowns on them), and acts as a wrath protection for the big man himself.

Others that have been good are Chandra's Ignition and Splendid Reclamation. You can check mine out in my profile for more ideas.

I love your inclusion of Gruul Ragebeast and Skullmulcher. I hadn't even thought about either of those, yet own multiples of both. Mulcher is a tank in my Prossh deck.

I mean, best case scenario this will be a green Bravo, King Value deck. Or maybe not?

This seems better in the 99 of an Anafenza, the Foremost, Atraxa, Praetors' Voice or Experiment Kraj +1/+1 style deck, but if you really want him as a commander Champion of Lambholt seems good, Cream of the Crop?, Dual Nature, Parallel Lives, Primal Vigor, Doubling Season, Durable Handicraft, Essence Warden, Herd Gnarr, Ivy Lane Denizen, Triumph of Ferocity, Elemental Bond, Mighty Emergence, Soul of the Harvest, Death's Presence, Fecundity, guttergrime, Lumberknot, Sultai Flayer.

There you go, ETB and death triggers.

Have you thought about dragons? Atarka, World Render, Siege Dragon and Flameblast Dragon are all pretty strong cards for this kind of deck. Dragonmaster Outcast is a good, cheap creature that will very likely create tokens thanks to your ramp, and Frontier Siege provides opportunities for your dragons to also act as removal pieces. Speaking of ramp, Omnath, Locus of Rage might deserve a slot thanks to his landfall trigger making your board both bigger and more risky to clear. Sultai Flayer turns fatty deaths into lifegain, and Ogre Battledriver is a must for having creatures pulled with Mayael hit on the same turn. Xenagos, the Reveler could help with mana needs and can create tokens to chump block, and Hydra Broodmaster can create a giant board all by itself.

Chandra's Ignition is a board wipe that can actually function as a win con more often than not. I cannot recommend it enough!

Have a look at my deck, they function differently, but I also like to chill behind my elementals not making any enemies and win the game out of nowhere without many attacks declared.

I never considered Sultai Flayer nor the interactions between Retreat to Kazandu and creatures with remove-a-counter abilities. Certainly going on my test-list!

Omnath is great and is one of the most requested of my decks on my playgroup. +1 given!
