Asceticism

Enchantment

Creatures you control have hexproof. (They can't be the targets of spells or abilities your opponents control.)

: Regenerate target creature.

Why not Temur Ascendancy over Fervor. plus no Asceticism , Astral Dragon , or Deadeye Navigator?

With Marwyn as your commander, you'll want to be careful with shroud (looking at Eladamri, Lord of Leaves). Shroud affects both you and your opponents. Therefore, Marwyn can't become the target of "Untap target creature" when Eladamri is out on the field. Personally, I like Asceticism for protection.

Against spot-removal, you could try including Archetype of Endurance and Asceticism (which also grants you the option to regenerate stuff you might otherwise lose).

This has got to be one of the most underrated commanders! Have you considered Allosaurus Shepherd, or it's more economically feasible cousin Destiny Spinner? Fauna Shaman should probably join the party as well. If money isn't an object for you (or if your pod is pro-proxy!) Survival of the Fittest is essential here. Some other staples like Veil of Summer, Autumn's Veil, Heroic Intervention, Worldly Tutor, Chord of Calling, Eldritch Evolution, Natural Order, Green Sun's Zenith, Summoner's Pact & Asceticism will make things more consistent and adaptable.

Good luck refining this one, I'm sure it will end up incredibly powerful!

Your assessment is valid. Zaxara, the Exemplary is a definite luxury in a deck that focuses on throwing around +1 +1 counters like nobody's business. Aside for the potential to create infinite mana with Pemmin's Aura, Zaxara's presence is tied to the high number of X spells inundating the 99 of this build (over two dozen). With an admittedly diverse and robust amount of ramp spells (more than a dozen), the X-theme of this deck can function independent of Zaxara. For the purposes of clarity, Asceticism's inclusion in the deck is more for blanketed protection than providing Zaxara with individualized protection. We have the aforementioned Pemmin's Aura and Lightning Greaves for that. Protecting our Hydra creatures from spot-removal is the top priority for Asceticism. Investing high amounts of mana into a Hydra and then watching it get plucked from the battlefield with a spot-removal spell or ability is quite deflating. However, in order to diversify our layers of protection, perhaps some instant-speed protection would also be beneficial. There is definitely space in the 99 to accommodate some counter-magic and Heroic Intervention-like spells. Thank you for your kind words! I appreciate them. Happy brewing!

Legendary beatdown? It should be easy to get her out on turn three for a turn 4 attack. Load up on cheap legends like Jolrael, Mwonvuli Recluse, Syr Faren, the Hengehammer, maybe Wilson, Refined Grizzly, and you have the start of a stompy deck.

Blackblade Reforged feels like a natural fit, too.

You could also ramp into bigger legendary creatures like Old Gnawbone or The Tarrasque and go for a big creature beatdown. Add some protection like Wrap in Vigor, Heroic Intervention, or Asceticism, depending on budget, and there's a deck.

I would say those are Doric's clearest strengths, ramping and face smashing, with a side of lands matter. I can't come up with anything too tricky or subtle to do with her as the centerpiece, so my suggestion is to dig into the aggro and swing hard.
