Bottle Gnomes may only gain you life but they at least can sac themselves at no cost and count as historic for the purposes of triggering your commander's ability.
Felidar Cub gives a little more removal to recur.
Condemn is a bit conditional but at least an option for some instant speed removal that can deal with indestructible creatures.
Checked Card Kingdom and they have a fair number of printings of Sun Titan for under $3, the Commander 2019 version is listed at $1.99. Having a couple of things that are a little beefier wouldn't be a bad idea and it fits the theme of the deck.
I second adding a anthem or two to be able to punch through if/when needed.

Just about every deck in these colours play them.
Never underestimate a Creature that you don't care about losing as a chump blocker, either.

Funkydiscogod: ah, i see. I would play 4 poly and no Indomitable Creativity in a deck like this just to get that hexproof.. abbatromebone paying 3+1 for the ”token” would be better if your opponent has Lightning Bolt , Path to Exile , Fatal Push or any other removal in their hand. This combo cant go off if your opponent has removal, and there are plenty of removal in modern ;) Thraben Inspector was a brainfart, of course you cant play creatures :).

- I like the lazotep PLating. Simic Keyrune is cmc3 for my token then i have to pay to make it a creature, then i have to cast polymorph. It also weakens Creativity which i do not like.
- Thraben Inspector is a whiff card for both my win cons so i dont like it.
- Another though i have had is to make it into a battle hymn sort of deck, where i use spells to to make goblins or something, then use battle him to have several targets for Indomitable Creativity making the deck slower but more resilliant, and could have a back up plan with tokens (or a banefire plan).

I'm working on a Sultai or Golgari version of Seasons Past myself. It was a blast to play back in Standard. A few suggestions:
Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet is such a strong card, I'd consider a one-of in the main or at least put another in the sideboard over Anafenza, the Foremost . They do practically the same, but he does it better.
Dark Petition was the card that really made Seasons Past a powerhouse back in Standard. If you up the count of those, you'd only need one Seasons main. Maybe another in the SB for matchups with countermagic. With more Petitions you also hit your Angels more reliably.
The manabase looks a little messy and painful. I don't think you need all the pain lands to make a strong 3-color base in Pioneer. I like Courser of Kruphix which, alongside Tireless Tracker , gets better with the inclusion of Fabled Passage .

StuBi's deck has a very different bend to it, though. Mine is tribal humans and Thalia's Lieutenant pumps the team or gets pumped as new members of the team enter the battlefield. Thus, Always Watching isn't quite as necessary. It's a fantastic card, but I just don't think it quite fits. Gideon Blackblade is a beast in this deck. It actually gets a +1/+1 counter on it if it comes in before a Thalia's Lieutenant , and giving a creature lifelink, vigilance, or indestructible has proven to be really clutch. The -6 ability for removal has also come in handy, and having a 4/4 indestructible attacker is pretty good. Were I to replace Gideon Blackblade , I would likely replace it with Gideon, Ally of Zendikar .
Ya, I don't use the playtester in TapperOut much at all. My playtesting is getting together with actual humans to try out physical cards. I'm old school that way! Ha!
Thanks again for the suggestions! They are so sincerely appreciated!

One will bring you far more value than the other.
Since you have so many 1 drops you could also cut one Thraben Inspector
That would give you one more space for a third Always Watching
Be careful with the playtester here.
It's good for letting you know if a deck is viable, but you won't get a real sense for mana screw or flood until you play with your deck in paper.
