Its looking better already though!
Raise the Alarm would be a huge help and might actually make this viable.

But how do you keep from losing? I would throw in Elixir of Immortality to further reuse your spells and that way you will actually win your war of attrition. You also need to prepare for defence against planeswalkers... You have no way to prevent them from getting onto the battlefield besides your counters.Detention Sphere is your best option but there is alsoPlanar Cleansing, Oblivion Ring and Scour from Existence. You need more mass removal besides Terminus I would recommend Supreme Verdict in Place of Terminus because you shouldn't rely on top decking a card that only appears twice. I love Dawn Charm because of it's flexibility and it's budget but I should be the first to tell you that Angel's Grace is much better... It doesn't prevent damage but the first 19 points of life don't matter anyway... Angel's Grace also protects you against the effects of Wayward Servant or a card like The Cheese Stands Alone if you ever take this to casual. This is what i've notices immediately... I would definitely scepter angel's grace so you can't die and that is what i've got for you... Have fun grinding:)... I have a deck very similar to this actuallyThe Dream Crusher and I'd be interested to see how this progresses.

Cool to see this list - I am working on an Oloro, Annoying Ascetic list that plays a bunch of other Esper commanders until it can land a Phage the Untouchable + Fractured Identity combo, sometimes enabled by Dream Halls.
I'll also pitch Choice of Damnations as a fun card to play.

I wouldn't call this a Stax deck so much as hard control. It's actually very similar to mine in a lot of ways except mine does not have the Aura Thief combo kill.
I don't know what sort of investment you intend to put into this and won't recommend Anthony too pricey, but I do have a few suggestions.
Clever Impersonator Phyrexian Metamorph because it's less mana intensive and your target is almost always going to be a creature or artifact anyway.
Mystical Tutor. Too many good targets.
Future Sight = raw card advantage.
Cut some of the weaker stuff like Telepathy, Burnished Hart, Imposing Sovereign, etc and add more land. With your curve 35 simply won't get it done. You need to be able to hit your land drops for the first five or so turns.

Some aura fetch would be good. I like Open the Armory, you dont have anything to bring auras back so I would recommend an Open the Vaults or Auramancer. Also, spells like Terminus are a problem so I recommend Flickerform and maybe Indestructibility for those pesky Wrath of God. Also Faith Unbroken is great for some removal.

Thanks for the input, I appreciate it. I was thinking about using Star of Extinction + Heroic Intervention as a potential combo, as well as putting Boros Charm in there as another way to protect my dinos. In terms of removal, I only have Terminus in there as a complete board wipe, largely because it would bury my dinos rather than send them to the graveyard, at which point Gishath, Sun's Avatar would still be able to retrieve them. After running a couple simulations, I agree, I need some additional card draw; Mind's Eye and Elemental Bond are two that I am absolutely going to work in.
As for Reverberate my main reason for having it in the deck is twofold. First, it gives me a small amount of protection against counter-spells, so I can hold it until I am ready to cast something potentially game-winning to ensure that the spell goes off. Second, if I am not playing against a control deck, I can use it to tutor since I am out of black. Beyond that, it can also serve a utility purpose of being additional ramp or spot removal as a two cost.
Berserkers' Onslaught, Stranglehold, and Elixir of Immortality are all cards that I have been extremely wish-washy over. Ultimately, I think you are right; they are probably cards that would be best served as a sideboard depending on the meta. Chaosphere seems like a great addition over any of those three. I might also include something like a Whispersilk Cloak to make sure my commander gets through to trigger its ability.
Again, I appreciate the input.

Mana Crypt Show
Wayfarer's Bauble is a good ramp option. I'd say it's strictly better than any of the generic 3CMC mana rocks like Manalith and Darksteel Ingot just because it's permanent land ramp. But the deck has no space for further ramp cards, and I certainly wouldn't use it over Mana Crypt.
Tithe is an okay land fetch card. I already have Eternal Dragon in the deck that performs the same task, but with the added benefit of not requiring coloured mana and being a 5/5 flier for the late game.
Sensei's Divining Top Show
As for refreshing the top of my library, there are currently fifteen cards in this deck that shuffle, with four of them repeatable by themselves.
Crucible of Worlds is a fine card, just not for this deck. I do have quite the number of utility lands, but they're not the main focus of the deck. I feel Sun Titan and Petrified Field are sufficient enough to bring back destroyed utility lands and have no need for a third land recursion card.
Day of Judgment & Wrath of God Show
Rout is a sweeper better suited for control decks. I infrequently have 7 mana open for a single spell. I'm always doing things with my mana.
The "choose one and sacrifice the rest" style of sweepers is something I don't want too many of. I've been burnt in the past by overloading on them and I don't want to make that mistake again. They will also never remove a permanent type if it's the only one that player controls. Something a straight, clean sweeper will always do.
Divine Reckoning doesn't have the benefits the other sweepers of this style have by hitting all nonland permanents, though is still a good option for metas heavy on token decks.
Tragic Arrogance is probably the first sweeper I would consider if I ever had to replace one, but for now it isn't needed.
Grasp of Fate & Angel of Sanctions Show
I ideally can't have my Commander to take out a Planeswalker and reduce their clock against an opponent. That extra turn could give them the opportunity they needed to turn the tables. In situations where I'm set back, the plethora of utility dorks my creature base is made of don't have the raw power to punch a Planeswalker to death in one attack. The better Planeswalkers are also quite adept at protecting themselves with blockers or their controller have ample defenses set up beforehand. Sometimes combat just isn't feasible for quickly killing a Planeswalker.
Aura of Silence's taxing ability becomes increasingly less effecting the longer the game goes. I've used it before and eventually replaced it.
Karmic Guide was in the deck before and I dropped it, as I didn't need so much creature recursion. I'm even recently having thoughts about Reveillark's role in the deck given the versatility of Sun Titan and the easy access to Sword of Light and Shadow this deck has.
Serra Ascendant & Transcendent Master Show
Transcendent Master is, above all other reasons, is in the deck because it's a Pet Card. It's slow and would be ineffective if I was ever in a competitive meta, but I adore the card too much to ever let it go. That's not to say it's bad. An indestructible, lifelinking 9/9 will give any deck a hard time.
Wall of Reverence is not what this deck wants. I like to think that every creature has the potential to be a threat with Equipment. A defender can't do anything. And if I ever need an efficient blocker, I can slap Godsend on something.
Gisela, the Broken Blade and Baneslayer Angel are both just big beaters. Serra Ascendant and Transcendent Master trumps them both by being both bigger and cheaper. Keywords can always come from Equipment.
