Viridian Longbow will allow your commander to deal damage during combat without attacking, therefore you will be able to get extra turns without attacking. Infinite extra-turns.

Obviously Whispersilk Cloak is great. Fleetfeather Sandals and Strider Harness are both good for granting haste. Vorrac Battlehorns for trample. Sylvok Lifestaff is good in sac decks. Viridian Longbow if you have deathtouch. Neurok Stealthsuit in blue and Horned Helm in green.

Thanks for commenting! Throne of the God-Pharaoh is such a fun card! Using Cryptolith Rite to ramp, casting Harvest Season to ramp even further and thin the deck, then throne would do a ton of damage. I just love the synergy behind it. Totally forgot about Viridian Longbow. Thanks for the reminder. As for Quillspike it doesn't do as well in my deck because I do not have too many creatures that care for having the -1/-1 counters placed on them. I am planning a build that is largely Amonkhet/Hour of detestation based, and Quillspike will probably go in that deck. This deck already has an infinite combo in it and the infinite mana actually will not win me the game unless I have Exsanguinate. Thank you for the advise!

I'm missing some good pump to your creatures: Beastmaster Ascension is a total beast for only 3 mana, Curse of Predation, Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest, Forgotten Ancient, Bloodspore Thrinax would work great because you can proliferate your +1/+1 counters. Overrun and Thunderfoot Baloth may also be good.
You can always surprise your oponent with Might of Oaks or cast Revenge of the Hunted on Glissa and you'll wipe somenes creatures while your infect creatures go unblocked, Enlarge can also work fine.
Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots are always amazing to protect Glissa and give your guys haste.
Equipment like Loxodon Warhammer, Sword of Vengeance and Whispersilk Cloak can also be helpful. Also, the more I use Key to the City, the more I like it.
Viridian Longbow to kill creatures with glissa's deathtouch or ping poison counters to your oponents with any of your infect guys.I know Glissa will be feeding you cards, but I'd run some card engines just in case Deathreap Ritual, Shamanic Revelation, Journey to Eternity  Flip. actually yhere are a lot.
Semblance Anvil can be quite cool here if you imprint one of your artifact creatures.

I'd cut:
Artisan of Kozilek for being to high cost and not really worth it that much in this deck.
Worldspine Wurm because it's basically unplayable unless you can consistently cheat it onto the battlefield.
Marsh Casualties and Curse of Death's Hold not effective enough in a multiplayer game where people use bigger creatures. You can ruin the game for some token player, but you have more important things to do with those card slots.
Grave Betrayal Powerful, but it doesn't really move your game forward. You'll have is stuck in you hand more often than not.
Serpent Generator 10 mana for the first 1/1 snake with no-infect. Ho'w do you plan to make those snakes go unblocked.I'd swap Mutilate some boardwipe that actually destroys the creatures, you may not have many swamps and most of your creatures are small so you would be killing your guys while sparing your opponents'. Best option is Damnation, the budget alternatives are Crux of Fate, Deadly Tempest and Extinguish All Hope to name a few.

If you cut the highest cost from the deck you could probably do with about 37 lands, maybe even fewer. You may want to add some dual lands

Happy brewing!

Since I already posted my edh in the other I guess I'll respond here since I used to use hapatra :)

Viridian Longbow is useful Devoted Druid, and Quillspike if you want to go for the infinite combo,Vhati il-Dal is hilarious in a hapatra deck. I recommend trying him out same with Throne of the God-Pharaoh

Dude I had a similar idea to this before!! :D Check out Hankyu and Viridian Longbow and Bow of Nylea

I'm currently trying to build this deck and I have had some luck throwing in Viridian Longbow as an alternate wincon, since Viridian Longbow + Axebane Guardian + Freed from the Real with one other defender is infinite damage.
