You want a deterministic loop, which is most of the real "infinite" combos in mtg anyway. Yisan, the Wanderer Bard could definitely be a good commander, but I agree that going for at least a 2 color commander can help you have a lot more variety to work with.
Depending on what types of combos you're interested in (infinite mana, infinite tokens, mill, ETB, etc...) you have a huge array of options open to you. Now with your preferred simic colors; that combo is very conducive to working on infinite mana and draw (these are by no means limitations, just particular strengths).
For example, you could very easily assemble a Peregrine Drake + Deadeye Navigator/Karametra's Acolyte + Umbral Mantle infinite mana engine. Then you can dump that mana into something like Helix Pinnacle, Walking Ballista, Simic Ascendancy.
Now Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy would be extremely strong for this sort of strategy, but he will probably get hit with a lot of hate. So you could always build it around one of the Zegana's or Edric, Spymaster of Trest if you want to play politics while getting draw.

Yisan, the Wanderer Bard is right up your alley, it has a strong tutor ability that can be activated at instant speed.
You go from Wirewood Symbiote into Priest of Titania, then using that mana, each turn you (with the help of Llanowar Elves, Fyndhorn Elves, Elvish Mystic, Boreal Druid, etc.) you can win super fast, just by getting Temur Sabertooth out.
Also, it's incredibly budget!
With Wirewood Symbiote, Priest of Titania, Temur Sabertooth, and a cheap elf, as well as the Priest tapping for at least 4 mana, (Elvish Archdruid, Karametra's Acolyte, etc. all work) you can make infinite mana. Toss in a card like Great Oak Guardian to make them all infinitely big and untap them infinitely, you should be able to get the win. Acidic Slime bounced infinitely is great too!

Sadly, you need to get to 6 power for Sisay, since Sisay, Weatherlight Captain says 'costs less than' rather than 'equal to or less than.'
No worries, the use of Jegantha as a companion is it lets you get Sisay to 4 power on it's own, which allows the whole combo to occur with no extra pieces. Yes 11 mana is a ton, but 3-3-5 isn't too bad, when it's a 5 color, 0 card combo, you can work with anything in deck. Radha while not bad for the deck, will often be worse than other ramp pieces like Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy, or just normal ramp.
The actual legends in more competitive Sisay lists (according to lists I've seen) are Lavinia, Azorius Renegade, Anafenza, the Foremost, Gaddock Teeg, Tymna the Weaver, Thrasios, Triton Hero, Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy, Teferi, Time Raveler, Oko, Thief of Crowns, Kethis, the Hidden Hand, Dack Fayden, Aminatou, the Fateshifter, The Chain Veil, Umezawa's Jitte, Derevi, Empyrial Tactician/Najeela, the Blade-Blossom (and Samut, Voice of Dissent optionally for this combo).
Optionally (on EDHREC) Helm of the Host, Hammer of Nazahn, Reki, the History of Kamigawa, Alesha, Who Smiles at Death, Domri, Anarch of Bolas, Teferi, Hero of Dominaria, Shalai, Voice of Plenty, Kambal, Consul of Allocation, Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain, Saffi Eriksdotter, Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons, Yisan, the Wanderer Bard, Captain Sisay, Brago, King Eternal, Kunoros, Hound of Athreos, Ashiok, Dream Render/Narset, Parter of Veils/Teferi, Master of Time/Linvala, Keeper of Silence (non-Jegantha variations)
Sadly, while Radha seems okay? Tutoring it is really bad, since you could fetch value pieces like Wrenn and Six, or better ramp like Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy, and I doubt you need an extra green if you can cast Sisay and activate her, and she also already needs to have a 1 color legend out. If you are looking to use Radha for pumping Sisay, run more of the optional legends. Idk, I could be wrong but I don't see it being popular, I hope you have the best of luck with it, it seems pretty fun for the deck on terms of a flavor include!

Definitely a good start. Something that would throw it a bit over the top is Intruder Alarm with its reprinting I believe you can find one between 4-7 dollars; this card is an absolute power house in chulane though if it's out of budget that's understandable.

In my oppinion, if you wish to increase the token focus, I'd cut the following cards: Collector Ouphe, Felidar Guardian, Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Omnath, Locus of Rage, Village Bell-Ringer, Yisan, the Wanderer Bard, Birthing Pod, Red Elemental Blast, evtl. Fauna Shaman
=> Remainders of the Kiki-Combo Package and anti-Control
I'd add the following cards
