hi really like your list! but I feel that you rely on the wrong keyword you see in most of the case having flying double strike haste is far better then first strike and vigilence also hexproof is really not that good because it doesnt give it during main phase 1 same thing for indestructible

creature: Skyhunter Skirmisher, Aven Sunstriker Balan, Wandering Knight, Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite not sure about this one but it's such a cool card! Akroma, Angel of Wrath and Zetalpa, Primal Dawn if your local meta is slow enough this are the cards

artifact: Quietus Spike, Hammer of Nazahn,

instant: Disenchant

sorcery: Hour of Revelation Wrath of God I know it's pretty weird but I feel that you can try to make your creature indestructible and blow thing up. Add them if you want it's more a play style choice then the other card. Revoke Existence

land: Command Beacon

list of thing to cut in my oppinion: Archetype of Courage, Elite Inquisitor, Batterskull, Ring of Thune, Unexpectedly Absent, Darksteel Mutation, Oblivion Ring, Captain of the Watch, Knight of Grace, Precinct Captain, Brimaz, King of Oreskos, Decree of Justice, Leonin Shikari

if you have any question for the cut or why certain card are on the list just ask me :)

  • Mangara of Corondor + sac outlet + 0 cmc artifact is a great way to completely ruin your opponents board state.
  • Paraselene for any and all kinds of enchantments that are bothersome. We aren't playing that many ourselves so this will have less of an adverse effect. Should we need one of our enchantments back there is always Restoration Specialist.
  • Aura of Silence to make the blue mages have to keep extra mana up if they want to get testy.
  • Non-blue counter spells like Rebuff the Wicked and Lapse of Certainty. Null Brooch is also a recurrable counter on a stick. Unexpectedly Absent is a hilarious way to bury an opponents stax piece or creature.
  • Benevolent Bodyguard, Grand Abolisher (on your turn), Hope of Ghirapur, Selfless Spirit, Lightning Greaves
  • Nevermore for any creature or card you just do NOT want to have come down.
  • Tormod's Crypt to give you all the graveyard hate you can stand to play...AND it doubles as a recurrable cmc 0 artifact!

    You don't have many cards to interact with your opponents.Start with adding some more removal like: Beast Within, Grasp of Fate, Unexpectedly Absent and Song of the Dryads.

    You should also consider adding some hate since you seemed to be focus on a simple agro attack for lethal strategy. Some good cards to consider are: Aura of Silence, Grand Abolisher, and Gaddock Teeg.

    If you focus on creature based hate it becomes easier to get it out in your color since you could also play: Birthing Pod, Worldly Tutor, and Sylvan Tutor.

    Your artifacts and equipment seem to be an important part of your deck's strategy. I would recommend Open the Armory and/or Fabricate.

    Bident of Thassa is a straight upgrade over Coastal Piracy and is an artifact to go alongside cards like Fabricate and Dispatch.

    Memory Lapse, Hinder, Unexpectedly Absent, and Azorius Charm all put things back on top of an opposing library so that you may steal them.

    The deck doesn't seem to have much in the way of ramp or acceleration. I only count 3 mana rocks and Sword of Feast and Famine. Having enough mana to steal expensive opposing spells seems critical. I'd recommend adding Solemn Simulacrum, Burnished Hart, Worn Powerstone, Sword of the Animist and Azorius Signet.

    Fell the Mighty is a way to deal with the larger creatures in your play group that you mentioned while not disrupting Daxos or your other smaller creatures.

    Swords to Plowshares is premium removal that isn't terribly expensive to purchase.

    Medomai the Ageless, Drogskol Reaver, and Thada Adel, Acquisitor all fit your theme of "creatures that have triggered abilities when they deal combat damage."

    Cathedral of War is a land that makes sure Daxos is a 3/3 as long as he attacks alone so that he can't be walled by opposing 2/2 creatures.

    Buried Ruin helps recur destroyed equipment.

    Padeem, Consul of Innovation protects your equipment and potentially offers card draw.

    Your deck doesn't seem to have many expensive cards in it so I tried to keep all of my suggestions budget friendly. Most of them cost $2 or less and none of them should be more than $5.

    Hey there! I saw your Reddit post asking for help, so I decided to leave a comment here because I like T/O comment syntax better. In any case, I would probably focus more on your control and voltron themes, and cut out cards that don't help either of those plans (mainly the Wizard subtheme, I'd stick to just 2 plans).

    Hope this helps!

    Oooh... Genesis Chamber is nasty. I like that. I like it a lot. Step 1: Pump everyone's board up. Step 2: Get the Aristocrats style cards out. Step 3: Board wipe. Step 4: Profit!

    Where has Unexpectedly Absent been all my life? Oh, right, I rarely play white... Next to exile, best single target removal effect, right here.

    Children of Korlis could be a serious cherry on top of things. Love it.

    I'm adding all of these. Thanks for the suggestions.

    Quite a lot of cards in your deck synergize nicely with Genesis Chamber. I think it would make a great addition.
    Unexpectedly Absent is one of the best removal spells in EDH - just wait until an opponent uses a search effect (Cultivate, Green Sun's Zenith, Demonic Tutor etc) and respond with that to get rid of whatever you want to remove. It's much better than Mortify.
    Since you have a couple of cards that you can pay a lot of life to (Toxic Deluge, Phyrexian Processor), as well as life gain doubling effects (Rhox Faithmender), I believe Children of Korlis could be really powerful in your list.
