Update 1 Cards Added In
Vigean Graftmage A cheap creature, with some +1/+1 syneregy, and a useful ability too. An easy add.
Cloudfin Raptor Another cheap creature that triggers Ezuri, and a flyer too. On top of that Evolve will help out too if it triggers.
Bring to Light A way of finding a flyer, a mana rock, or another creature. Not the cheapest card, but pays for itself with its ability to cast the follow up card for no mana.
Primeval Bounty Triggers Ezuri with its tokens, adds counters when non-creatures are cast, and some incidental Lifegain too? Easy add, just a shame its expensive.
Treasure Cruise In this deck the graveyard is dead space, so Delve is perfect here. More card draw is no bad thing.
Thrummingbird A cheap flyer that triggers Ezuri, and can also Proliferate too.
Hornet Queen Yes, it's a token generator, but the tokens are so very useful its worth the price. Plus triggers Ezuri too.
Sagu Mauler Potentially a finisher that can protect itself, and when it comes in as a Morph it will trigger Ezuri too. This is an experimental add to see if it works the way I hope it does.
Fathom Mage An Evolve card that adds card draw too. On top of that it triggers Ezuri, and I can never resist a foil!
Vorel of the Hull Clade Really obvious inclusion for boosting counters, and has great synergy with Ezuri.
Murkfiend Liege No they aren't counters but boosting the power of all blue and green creatures, plus having them available every turn is too tempting not to include.
Simic Manipulator Again an Evolve card and a way to make use of lots of +1/+1 counters.
Temple of Mystery Slow dual land with an additional Scry. An easy change for one of the many basics.
Yavimaya Coast Untapped dual land, foil, and allows me colourless if i don't want the pain. An easy swap for a Vivid land.
Botanical Sanctum If I need it untapped, it comes in untapped. If I can afford to wait, then well it gets played later! Again an easy upgrade on a basic.
Hinterland Harbor Again another easy swap for a Vivid land. If it comes out at the right time then it gets played untapped. If it doesn't then, well... I guess I didn't need it that badly.
Llanowar Elves More mana. Triggers Ezuri. Easy.
Animation Module Plenty of opportunity to trigger, and gives more Ezuri triggers too. Can also add more counters to other things too. Its versatility makes it an easy inclusion.
Primordial Hydra A big finisher that leans into the Counters theme.
Managorger Hydra Another creature that has the potential to grow into a large finisher, with Trample to get me there.
Skyrider Elf If I am honest this is basically a placeholder for something better, but its a flyer and also has good synergy due to convergence.

The efficient land cards are what make this set more expensive, but the sturdy defender deck can afford to slow things down with cheaper mana alternatives. On the plus side, the guild-gates at our disposal look like we're building up more walls, and the scry from the various Temple of Mystery 's helps to put the combo pieces we need into our hands.

I would honestly take out 2 Snakeskin Veil for 2 Distortion Strike , then replace the last 1 for a full playset of Blossoming Defense . You've got plenty of better hexproof options with Vines of Vastwood and Blossoming Defense . Infect is all about killing your opponent by turn 3. If you give them enough time to get blockers out, it won't matter anymore, so the bigger pump spells are better. If you ever get fetchlands for the deck, you can add Dryad Arbor for a fetch target that can help you survive sacrifice effects. Since Infect is such a fast deck, a pretty budget land you can run is Botanical Sanctum . It'll do wonders for your manabase.

You have 11 taplands. 11. When playing cEDH, the most you have is 1. Ever. Yavimaya Coast , Botanical Sanctum , Exotic Orchard , Sungrass Prairie , Skycloud Expanse , Sunpetal Grove , Glacial Fortress , Hinterland Harbor , Razorverge Thicket , Seachrome Coast , Spire of Industry . You'll have to spend a little more, but it's only like $30. And without that, you're never gonna win at a cEDH table.
You're also not running Spell Pierce , Autumn's Veil , Dovin's Veto , Swords to Plowshares , Pongify , Rapid Hybridization , Path to Exile , Dispel , Mystical Dispute , Delay . Those are pretty much necessary. Also, Neoform , Eldritch Evolution , Eladamri's Call .
Most of your combos are . . . not cEDH viable. They require you to run taplands AND bad ramp cards and they require you to have several pieces on top of just needing several cards that aren't good outside the combo.
Now, is this a solid deck that will do well in moderately tuned games? Definitely. But it isn't competitive. And it is totally possible to make a competitive deck without going over $200, you just lose some of the speed and have to build your deck a bit differently to stay in the game.

Hey, I would suggest adding a Simic Growth Chamber instead of Botanical Sanctum . Infinite card draw with aesi or tatyova. I also added a Cloudstone Curio because it enables infinite loops with kodama triggers

Hey there! Kinnan is a super broken and cool commander, and I might just have a few suggestions for you! You might want to try cards like Hinterland Harbor since you have a lot of basics, along with Flooded Grove, Waterlogged Grove, and possibly a Botanical Sanctum! If you have the budget, Ancient Tomb, Prismatic Vista, Reflecting Pool, and Strip Mine would work very well too as I've found in some of my decks. To add to the fun, while Umbral Mantle does indeed go infinite with some dorks, so do Sword of the Paruns and Staff of Domination, tripling the combos in that area! If you want to add to the elf theme, I feel like Elvish Archdruid should definitely be in here, as should Copperhorn Scout. If you attack with copperhorn (keep in mind it's also an elf!) then you untap all your other dorks and get to play A TON of more stuff, even if copperhorn dies it will still surely be worth it! One huge card you are missing is also Leyline of Abundance, acting almost as another Kinnan and getting you way more mana, as well as being a place you can pull infinite mana into for a quick win. Last but not least, I have a bunch of other ramp spells you may want to consider adding! Nyxbloom Ancient, Mana Reflection, (cards like Awakening, Seedborn Muse, and Wilderness Reclamation let you activate your dorks to use on Kinnan on sometimes EVERY PLAYERS TURN AGAIN, giving you multiple turns worth of value by the time its back to you turn again!) and a few more you can find under my decks!. Seems like a cool deck, good luck on it, hope this helps, and have a swell day! Happy tapping!
