Blue is the transformative color. Given the Clone family of cards and things like Unstable Mutation . Polymorph is one of the most powerful transformation cards you can play. Blue is also, mostly, the only color that can easily change creature types of unwilling targets.

I would add Expedition Map for the usual land tutor of Urborg+Cabal and maybe one or two cards that allow you to play extra-lands like Oracle of Mul Daya , Burgeoning or Exploration . To add redundancy I'd suggest also Seedborn Muse and maybe, depending on the direction that you want to take your deck also Vedalken Orrery . For the removal slot I'd add Toxic Deluge , Abrupt Decay and Assassin's Trophy . Anyway, this are just some quick ideas, it really depends on the direction that you want to take with this commander: landmatter, big-mana, life-gain, aristocrats, ecc... The most important thing though? Have fun!

Hey, a Turbofog deck! First couple things I see: in the Fog package, switch Haze of Pollen for Angelsong for a cheaper cycling card. Thwart the Enemy doesn't do anything that a straightforward Fog doesn't do for a third the cost; Thwart the Enemy is better for creature-on-creature combat. Even with the Seasons Past recursion, if you've been careful with your Fogs, pulling back a 1-mana fog and a 2-mana fog should be enough, especially since you only have two of them. If you're set on the 3-mana Fog, consider Sudden Spoiling .
For the removal package: Abrupt Decay is solid. Vraska's Contempt is a little more mana-hungry than I personally prefer, but I can respect it. I would switch it for something 3-mana, maybe Anguished Unmaking or Maelstrom Pulse for broader removal.
Win condition: I've never used Approach of the Second Sun personally, so I'm interested in that choice. There's an earlier suggestion about adding a backup win condition, and I agree with that. Something resilient and difficult to interact with. I see Dragonlord Dromoka in the maybe board, and I like Sigarda, Host of Herons , but those are questionably budget.
Other: Adding some ramp that comes down before turn 3 might help you reach your late game faster. I also like a small discard package; even a handful of Duress can preempt a lot of problems. Leyline of Sanctity has dropped in price a lot, and it's practically required if you see a lot of burn or 10-rack or anything like that.
So that's what I get out of my first pass over this deck. Use your Fogs carefully and use your life total as a cushion, and this could get some good results. More comments to come later.

Heya! I’m currently working on the cheaper/casual variant of my Beledros deck, but for yours, I’d say some considerations would definitely be:
And Triumph of the Hordes , if you can get any of them I’ll have a more definitive list of potential cards in the other list, if you’d wanna pick off that one too; though it’ll be a day or two!

Everything you've said about Trostani is definitely true but applies equally to Advent of the Wurm , except wurms also get hit by Abrupt Decay , non-revolt Fatal Push , and any Unsummon or O-Ring effects. The reality is that at 4 mana, neither of these cards is viable in a competitive modern environment. If your meta is cutthroat enough to see that much single-target removal flying around, I'd recommend going into black to run spirit tokens ( Spectral Procession , Lingering Souls , Kaya's Guile , etc.) which are generally better than populate staples like Call of the Conclave , Selesnya Charm , and Wake the Reflections , especially if you lean into anthems like Intangible Virtue , Leyline of the Meek , Force of Virtue , and so on. You're already pretty far in that direction anyway by running Legion's Landing Flip and Gather the Townsfolk . Those were more the cards I was thinking of cutting for a singleton Trostani or Ranks. Definitely don't cut March, as it's pretty great as a finisher. (I had a lot of fun messing around with it and Harmonious Archon in standard pre-lockdown. XD) Also, regardless of which colors you prefer, Timely Reinforcements is a classic sideboard option against burn that also loves playing with Virtue.

Thankfully I have all the cards I mentioned just not sure if I want to play them. Concordant Crossroads was a staple in my Ezuri, Renegade Leader deck but, with Lathril I am not sure giving EVERY CREATURE haste is something this deck can really take advantage of. I think I am going to try Fauna Shaman as she will help pull out big mana dorks quick, plus she synergizes with the rest of the elf theme.
I never thought about putting in Chord of Calling over Green Sun's Zenith but, with the amount of tokens our decks are producing you could in theory create an instant speed creature tutor that can pull both black and green creatures. Just cast it before your opponents end step with your untapped creatures or do it on your turn if Throne of the God-Pharaoh is out, spicy. Another really good tutor I have thought about running is, Finale of Devastation but, I feel to get the biggest bang for the buck I need to have a Craterhoof Behemoth in the deck which sandly is something I don't own.
I have been going back and forth with Champion of Lambholt as she will get really big really quick but, not really digging the fact she is not an elf. I might still try her and see how it works. As for Abrupt Decay I love the card but don't own it. Maybe I will have to pick up one.

Hahaha raspberryfish25 now you mention it, it does sound funny :-). If answers are needed in your meta these are definitely good choices, the Golgari colors have lots of answers to play in the form of targeted and mass removal. Abrupt Decay could also be included. Eyeblight Massacre could also get rid of tokens, without harming your own board state. Lys Alana Scarblade in combination with untap abilities could also perform well to get rid of pesky creatures. You can always recur the discarded creatures with several black cards out there, though not really my style of play. Cover of Darkness is sitting in my binder, trying it out, great evasive tech. Genesis Wave , now that is a digger I do like, definitely agree with you on that one.
As for the cards you are willing to try, they are indeed very strong, but strong comes with a price tag, if budget isn't an issue definitely worth upgrading.
Chord of Calling budget one-time use Zenith, Crashing Drawbridge cheaper crossroads, although usable the next turn, but only haste on your side of the board. Fauna Shaman is already the budget version of Survival of the Fittest , but Evolutionary Leap is the cheapest closest card with more or less the same effect. Song of the Dryads combo sounds like a lot of fun indeed. With enough counters on Champion of Lambholt you can achieve the same for the price of a bag of crisps. Seeker of Skybreak is a great "untapper", maybe you like Quirion Ranger and Scryb Ranger too.
Time Spiral remastered comes with a few nice reprints like Slaughter Pact , Summoner's Pact , Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Damnation . Still on the steep side, price-wise, but way cheaper than the currently printed versions.

I'm going to go ahead and start on ramp here, you have only a couple pieces of pretty bad ramp.
So I really recommend picking up Llanowar Elves , Elvish Mystic , Elves of Deep Shadow , Fyndhorn Elves , Wild Growth , Rakdos Signet , Golgari Signet and Gruul Signet . Those are all really good because they can come down early, they get you more mana to play Mario and Luigi earlier, they can help you play your bigger cards earlier, and they can be sacrificed to the brothers.
If you want to find room, Cultivate , Harrow , Kodama's Reach , Rampant Growth , and Boundless Realms are all really really good, but not quite as necessary here as they can't be sacrificed to the brothers.
The player with the most mana is often the player in the best position in EDH, so mana ramp is important.
You also want some good interaction, which isn't quite as relevant with the brothers but it's still very important. Rakdos Charm , Terminate , Abrade , Abrupt Decay and Assassin's Trophy (which are a bit pricier), Doom Blade effects such as Cast Down , Ultimate Price , Go for the Throat and Heartless Act , Lightning Bolt , Nature's Claim are all pretty solid ones. The purpose is just to be able to stop someone from killing you, remember not to be aggressive and kill things without reason.
Casualties of War is pretty cool too, I just like the card.
