Love me some Phelddagrif! You might like these:
- Treetop Village, Lumbering Falls, Stirring Wildwood. Sneaky Intruder Alarm Synergy!
- Wilderness Reclamation, Frontier Siege, Smothering Tithe
- Nacatl War-Pride. This card is so cool with Phelddagrif. You can actually have the copies attack players other than the defending player of the non-token Nacatl. For example, you can swing OG Nacatl at your frenemy who has 10 hippos, and send the 10 Nacatl copies at non-friend opponents. Has syngery with Teferi's Protection too: Respond to Nacatl's delayed trigger that would normally exile the cat tokens with TP (tokens that are phased out can't be exiled) allowing you to keep all the cat copies!
- Gideon, Champion of Justice, Ezuri's Predation, Arachnogenesis, Dingus Staff. Weaponize the hippo gifts.
- Mantle of Leadership. Give someone hippos just to kill them with commander damage!
- Beck / Call, Borrowing 100,000 Arrows, Theft of Dreams, Keep Watch. Profit from giving hippos.
Here's my hippo list if you're interested: Super Hippo

Love me some Angus.
I am not a big fan of Fog Patch. It doesn't stop creatures with Trample, which is a pretty big deal. I also think you can do way better than Fog and Holy Day in Commander.
Cancel is a bit bland as well. There are tons of better counterpells. I would play Forbid, but pretty much anything else will work as well.
Elephant Grass is a super powerful card for you. Extra points for comboing with Hannah, Ship's Navigator.
You aren't running too many essential creatures to your game plan, aside from card draw and ramp. Asceticism seems a bit out of place. Why not play Privileged Position? This will protect all your permanents at the expense of not being able to regenerate creatures for 2 mana.
You can do a lot better than Guard Gomazoa. In fact, I think it would be a good idea to add a few more lands to your deck and this seems like an appropriate cut.
O-Ring or Banishing Light could be replaced by Detention Sphere. It's only slightly better because it can deal with boards full of tokens.

Awesome idea! I might try to build something similar, but without the infect.
Bubble Matrix is probably the best way to keep your creatures safe while still dealing all their damage.
Constant Mists is a Commander staple and works even better in your deck.
Spike Weaver is perfect for your deck since you are dealing with +1/+1 counters anyways.
Dawnstrider is probably also worth it, but much more fragile.
Arachnogenesis is a classic Fog effect in Commander.
Moment's Peace is still one of the best fogs you can play.
Finally, a home for Leery Fogbeast! I'm not sure if it's good enough, since opponents likely won't block it at all.
In terms of cuts, I think most of your current fogs could be replaced with the ones I've suggested. They are often too expensive or don't give you any additional value or can only be used once.
If most of your creatures have infect already, why play Triumph of the Hordes over another Overrun effect? You could get much stronger effects such as Craterhoof Behemoth.

@Tiyos99 - that's a great idea! however, i don't know yet which card to replace.. I'll test and think about it.. but thanks for suggesting it!
@doge1980 - that's a good card to rebuild from a boardwipe! i'll test it for sure.. thanks!
@jets99 - i think somebody already before.. i think it was before adding a suggestion option on commenting on another user's deck.. but thanks for re-suggesting it..

@gaglink - lol! thanks for commenting on this deck too! Is Arachnogenesis your favorite card for edh? I feel like it is.. lol. anyway, I think that card is good in my Slimefoot, the Stowaway deck and here in this deck too! It's a good surprising way to deal with opponents who go wide with their creatures such as token decks.. Thanks again for suggesting it here!

@rasiti - hmmm.. that's a good tutor for a token/sacrifice deck like this.. thanks!
@Weebo71 - there are not much good targets for single target recursion in this deck, unlike most golgari edh decks, but Thrilling Encore can be good after a mass removal though.. thanks for the suggestions!
@KEWEFI - not yet.. Technically, that's a 4/5 deathtouch creature with demonic tutor built in for 3BB and sacrificing a creature, but with this deck, can be used efficiently by sacrificing a token.. a saproling token would be best sacrifice, especially when Slimefoot, the Stowaway is in my battlefield.. Thanks!
