Creature — Elemental Incarnation
If damage would be dealt to another creature you control, prevent that damage. Put a +1/+1 counter on that creature for each 1 damage prevented this way.
When Vigor is put into a graveyard from anywhere, shuffle it into its owner's library.

You have TONS of creature removal but I only count 3 spells that can remove artifacts or enchantments. I suggest adding a card like Return to Dust or Crush Contraband as the best instant speed options with 2 for 1 capability. Aura of Silence is agreat tax effect that pulls double duty as removal as well.
Ad Naseum seems like a really risky card in here since you have quite a few higher CmC cards. It usually is better in a deck where the average CmC is ~2 so the life loss is mitigated and you are more likely to get a full grip from the spell. I know with Angel's Grace you can draw your deck but you don't have any ways to secure your infinite Dualcaster Mages from finishing the job. Maybe include a card like Silence or Grand Abolisher to make sure your combo goes off without a hitch.
With a decent instant package maybe you should consider Isochron Scepter . Stick a Swords to Plowshares or Silence or Despark under there and have repeatable interaction. Silence is exceptionally nasty.

— Alright, I think you've convinced me! Damage prevention can't protect a creature from anything that Indestructible can't also protect from. (Except for Infect/Wither, because that damage isn't actually prevented, so the -1/-1 counters are still placed on the Indestructible creature.) Similarly, Indestructible is essentially an always-on Regeneration shield that you don't have to pay each time for.
Protection does have the added benefits of faux-Hexproof and Unblockability, but I can't give a Lure permanent protection like I can with Indestructible, relying instead on instants. That said, I think having a combo of both Indestructible and Protection in the deck will cover multiple situations.
Demarge — I'll try to provide a decklist at some point. As to the status of the decks, we already have some decks we play with, while this deck I'm currently working on would be a new addition. So I'm not yet sure if this will be one of the weaker decklists or not.
I'll admit that I've never tried a strategy like this before, so I will definitely consider your advice about implementing it differently. It may also just come down to a difference in playstyle between you and me, and what sort of decks / strategies we'd prefer. For instance, I actually like the go-wide strategy, even in Commander's boardwipe-rich environment! :)

I know it hasn't been asked in the starting post and it might be too expensive, but Vigor seems like a great option for your purposes.

Hi firesparker, Infect is more difficult in Multiplayer Games. I played a Atraxa Build with Infect for 2 Mounths. Your biggest Problem are your Opponents and there know what you play.
I try to give your my suggestion.
- Try to play Blightsteel Colossus over some Cheat-in Cards like Show and Tell , Defense of the Heart or maybe Quicksilver Amulet .
Take more focus on Poliferate
Use dirty Cards like Tainted Strike for take out someone if an Opponents attacks with a Fattie.
Putrefax Awesome Dude, maybe play with Reanimate/Regroth/Eternal Wittness
Phyrexian Hydra Fattie
Master Biomancer push your Creatures
Tezzeret's Gambit Carddraw + Poliferate
Triumph of the Hordes Overrun
Contagion Engine Poliferate but high Cmc, depending on your Meta.
Evolution Sage Landdrops with benefits
Craterhoof Behemoth Value Finisher if you had this Budget.
Grafted Exoskeleton also good, but expensive (CMC)
Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon Must have.
Mostly important is your Manabase and Mana-Rocks.
You will play fast as possible. Cut Lands that enters tapped.
Play Atraxa just you can protect her. Abuse her Lifelink every Combat and cut Cards like Fog ...
Your opponents do not want to attack you if Atraxa is online -> Deathtouch.
Maybe you need more Carddraw, Topdeck-Control:
If you build more around +1/+1 Counters with Master Biomancer -> Herald of Secret Streams
BUT, i think your Build is also good with more focus on poliferate.

Have you considered Cunning Evasion ? It essentially gives your morphed cards unblockable and lets you reset flipped ones. It puts players in a such a bind when you drop Ixidron with this in play because they have to choose to let you have it back or take 10+ damage.
Colorless ramps seems valuable here so I suggest Thran Dynamo as it's the most efficient mana producer in this slot.
Because your commander has "Draw a card" printed on it I always look at Alhammarret's Archive because I'm a greedy player. To be honest I'm not sure if it's needed but if you ever get to a point where your morphs cost 0 this could help keep the draw and play train running.
An all star for so so far has been Vigor which makes all your attacks and blocks amazing.
