Why no Thornbite Staff ? It turns Diaochan into a (potentionally) one-sided sweeper every turn!
As you know I am also currently building a Diaochan Deck, trying to run less creatures than you and beeing a little more agressive. Far from done with it though.

Okay, let's do this! cracks knuckles I love the snarky tone of the description, btw :)
The stax elements of this deck seem strong, mostly. You're missing Winter Orb though. I would normally suggest Crackdown and Meekstone and Moat, but they interfere with Alesha :( Perhaps Smoke or Mudslide? I don't personally like Chalice of the Void in EDH, though, there's just too much variance in the mana cost of powerful cards. And since you're reanimating things anyway, might as well play Big Daddy Smokestack!
However, the land base seems...a little off. 29 mana-producing lands is REALLY really low, doubly so since you will have to pay some of your own "taxes". I know that the Karoo lands help a bit, but I still wouldn't trust this mana base without SIGNIFICANT testing. You might also find the Filterlands useful to mana fix (Rugged Prairie, Fetid Heath, Graven Cairns). I also never leave home without Reflecting Pool, City of Brass, Mana Confluence, etc. Basically, look at Lilbrudder's Leovold mana base and color-shift it XD
I'm actually not really a fan of Nahiri, the Harbinger in EDH. Is she just there for utility, or are you planning to use her ult? If the former is true, there are better ways to get card filtering. If the latter is true, what's your finisher?
That being said, planeswalkers can generally be really good in stax decks. You might get away with including some other walkers that play more into your gameplan, possibly Sorin Markov to reset lifetotals? :)
No Necropotence? :( I guess maybe the card is too much color commitment in tri-color.
If you're going to run Mox Opal with only 18 artifacts, I'd try and include the three on-color artifact lands as well.
False Prophet seems odd here, since you have the ability to reanimate creatures with relative ease.
Yes or no on Mox Diamond? Your land count is already low, but it's so good...
I hope that helps a bit! :) I'll leave more comments if I think of them, and happy deckbuilding!

I highly recommend Faithless Looting over Wild Guess. You may play it in T1, and discard a drawed Emy, then you may flashback it to dig into your deck for the combos.Expose Evil is an underrated card against aggro decks, clues can be targeted with Creativity.
+1 for you ;D

This deck is rad. Looks fun.
I enjoy your take on Feldon of the Third Path. It goes well with stuff like Skullclamp, plus the ramp/draw cards (coiling oracle) and even Bob if you activate at upkeep. Frantic Search would pair well too I think.
If I did question some of the deck, it would be the more group hug cards like Ghirapur Orrery and Veteran Explorer. You do see the Explorer in other decks. Starting a turn by playing and sac'ing for 2 extra land is explosive, but also opens you up to countermagic. When do you usually do his thing?
Vampiric Tutor doesn't cantrip; but does its job. I assume it's in the maybeboard due to its crazy cost too.
Your landbase is insane. How do you feel about Cathartic Reunion, Faithless Looting, Careful Study, maybe even Tormenting Voice, Magmatic Insight, Wild Guess etc? I want to blast through my deck until I get combo pieces, retrieving lands with Crucible of Worlds,Splendid Reclamation & co. I also haven't picked up a Crucible of Worlds, so I would very much like your opinion on that.
Here's the deck I've been working on and playing with since the summer (LINK). It's meant for multiplayer so the curve is much higher. I'd like to drop that as much as possible. It also has more interaction for slowing down my gnar friends. Slightly less emphasis on yidris himself.
How much do you feel you rely on your commander to finish games? That'll take forever in large games. Same w/ mill. Using the largest hand size is smart tho.

Looks like a fun deck! Is it preforming well in multiplayer games?
Some of my thoughts that could improve it are
Thunderbreak Regent- not impactful enough?
Daretti, Scrap Savant - draw discard the dragons and rebuy later
like Sarkhan's Triumph
Like Safe Haven, very clever!
maybe Skred for more interaction
really good job finding a job for Changeling Berserker!
how many times in an average game do you activate your commander?
Hope anything I've suggested is helpful! +1

I feel like the flavour could be pushed up a notch or two. Throw in some looting/rummaging effects Academy Raider, Curse of Chaos, Daretti, Scrap Savant, Vaultbreaker, Dragon Mage, Wild Guess, to name a few. Prophetic Flamespeaker to get cards off the top, Grenzo, Havoc Raiser to get cards off the top of others' decks.
