Cast Berserk only before the combat damage step.
Target creature gains trample and gets +X/+0 until end of turn, where X is its power. At the beginning of the next end step, destroy that creature if it attacked this turn.
Delphen7 on Cube idea, good or bad? …

I think it's an interesting idea, I'd just make sure the people you're playing with are emotionally ready to potentially lose a bomb or combo piece. Otherwise (╯°□°）╯︵ ┻━┻) might happen
You touched on mana fixing, but another way to solve Caerwyn's issue would be to have high quantity of colorless cards, so that everyone can play them regardless of what colors they're actually on.
I don't think Sunbird Invocation combos with a single Second Sun.
- Jace, Wielder of Mysteries + Tainted Pact
- Malignus + Berserk / Choose Your Weapon
- Coalition Victory / Door to Nothingness -- If someone pulled either of these off in a draft I would be impressed

Out: Wall of Mist and Berserk
In: Vedalken Orrery and Towering Titan
Berserk can often be a dead card in hand due to the amount of attention this deck gets at the table. Its original intent was to buff up an opponent's attacking creature (towards another opponent) and cause some additional damage or loss of a few creatures. Also, I would like a way to be a bit more sneaky with holding up mana (in case I don't need to counterspell anything). Ergo, since Wall of Mist is pretty vanilla I replaced it with Vedalken Orrery. The deck also needs another finisher and a form of trample, so we'll test play Towering Titan for a few games.

Thank you for the detailed response! I used to have an Atraxa infect deck that also aimed to be maximally ideal within the infect gameplan. I lost the list a long time ago, but it utilized a lot of combat spells like Berserk, Might of Old Krosa, etc. to try to eliminate people as fast as possible. It didn't have a very good win rate, and I think your list is much better!
Scriptures is great if you're gameplan centers on one creature, but I think you need Atraxa and at least 1 creature with infect to start taking people out. You could consider adding Phyresis and/or Grafted Exoskeleton to make Atraxa both your source of infect and proliferation, which makes Scriptures much better. Both also allow you to give your praetors infect if needed. Since you're introducing a new source of infect, you could probably cut Priests of Norn for one. Otherwise, I can't think of anything that could need replacing. Love the list!

Fantastic brew, I've never seen an Arahbo deck with Kaheera in the loop so this is really neat. I have some card suggestions but you may have thought of these before. I typically don't play Selesnya either, but there are some real bangers that change games IMO. It just depends on how specific you want the direction of the deck to be, since I see you like running enchantments and instants as your pump instead of equipment.
Defense of the Heart a creature tutor, that yeah, depends on the opponents board but completely changes the tempo of a game.
Hunting Grounds filthy if you find yourself with the Threshold trigger early.
Heroic Intervention solid protection
Arachnogenesis more solid protection
Akroma's Will provides indestructible and more--a flexible card
Return of the Wildspeaker is pump or card draw
Congregation at Dawn nifty tutor?
Berserk nasty pump
Unflinching Courage basically a second Armadillo Cloak
Unquestioned Authority pro-creatures!
Shield of the Oversoul filthy
Again, I'm not saying all of these should go in--just suggestions that popped in my head while looking at your list and cards you may have very well thought if already. Great job with this--I think Arahbo in particular is a great commander!

If you are still looking to improve the deck, I've also been working on this deck for a long long time (when the card came out). I've always like the voltron big swing style as it was unique to commander, but my deck is solely for 1v1 and does not work very well in multiplayer. Here is a list of cards that I would recommend that have worked wonders for me.
Tainted Strike - 2nd berserk (if you're ok with infect)
Belt of Giant Strength - after you scavenge, 2 mana equipment, free equip for another 8 power
Not of This World - my secret tech, after you make it big it's free
Veil of Summer - with this style of deck protection is very important
Sylvan Safekeeper - free protection that they constantly have to respect Wild Shape - flexible, mostly used for hexproof or trample
Jarad's Orders - the 2nd best tutor after buried alive, because there will be 2 creatures you always search for and it's on curve. you always look for Elvish Spirit Guide and Phyrexian Dreadnought. Phyrexian Dreadnought goes to graveyard and Elvish Spirit Guide goes to hand, exile, scavenge, swing with 14 power on turn 3-4.
Unmarked Grave - entomb #2
Demonic Embrace - you can entomb this and give you commander evasion and +3/+1.
Bramblewood Paragon - play this turn 2, minor buff counter, and gives trample because Varolz, the Scar-Striped is a warrior
Rancor - buff and trample, you need to get through
Destiny Spinner - one of the few ways green has to fight counters
Solidarity of Heroes - 2 mana double the 12/13 counters
Wild Growth - it may not be a creature, but it does get our commander out on turn 2
Mausoleum Secrets - 2 mana instant demonic tutor, you sac a dork in response, go find Phyrexian Dreadnought/Death's Shadow, protection spell, or in 99% of cases that I use this one is Berserk
Elvish Spirit Guide - serves 2 purposes, the Jarad's Orders trick and making all your turn 2 plays turn 1 (like Sylvan Library), you can also end the Survival of the Fittest chain with elvish spirit guide to do the same trick
Sylvan Safekeeper - free protection that they must always respect, it's very good
Collective Brutality - I value discard highly in 1v1. It also allows you to ditch your scavenge target from your hand to the graveyard while seeing the coast is clear. But in multiplayer, less useful.
Lightning Greaves - haste and protection, yes plz
Dismember - takes care of many of the early problematic targets
Hatred - 1 card win with commander
Necropotence - sculpt your hand for next turn kill
Cards that I would recommend reconsidering/taking out
Harmonize - a bit too slow imo
Arbor Elf - the amount of targets you actually have isn't enough to make it consistent
Asceticism - a bit too slow, you only care about the creature you scavenge on so in terms of mana efficiency something like Sylvan Safekeeper or Lightning Greaves
Quirion Elves/Devoted Druid - we want to go 1->3 mana, so we get our commander out on turn 2, this doesn't help to do that

My (EDH-centered) thoughts Show
Chun-Li: Eheheh. Anyway, note that there's no "without paying their mana cost" rider, and that as you're casting copies you're allowed to reuse your Instants each combat (and they're lost should Chun-Li die NO WAIT I'M BAD ). Thankfully, the only Instant extra turn spell available in Azorius is Nexus of Fate, and getting it into your graveyard isn't too easy.
Dhalsim: Reach tribal that rewards low power? Heh, Ishkanah, Grafwidow isn't to pleased to be excluded by that white pip. Azban spider commander when?
Honda: Oof, 6 mana? At least that 7 toughness is going to be put to work by his buttfighting. Hundred-Handed One feels mildly insulted.
Ken: This is quite a bit more interesting than Ryu, being a kinda weird spellslinging voltron commander in Boros. And hey, there's that Shoryuken, though without the symbol pun I wanted.
Zangief: The Zurgo Helmsmasher comparsion is obvious, though Zangief is less voltron friendly, both because of his different third ability and because of the lack of white. Anyway, you can obviously use things like Chandra's Ignition to nuke people's Artifacts, Enchantments, and Planewalkers every once in a while. Also, Berserk is fun here since Zangief won't die.
