Chord of Calling

does anyone have an opinion for what the best tutor would be for this kind of deck? (or should i avoid tutors altogether?)

Those are the first two that come to mind and I'm leaning towards calling being the better option; or is the new modern horizons 3 Birthing ritual (which is kinda like Evolutionary Leap) seem best?

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!

Did not update the list for long so it's time to look through few cards from latest sets at least:

Cityscape Leveler - artifact version of Ulamog. It's cheaper and repeatable (attack trigger) but being artifacts makes it die from collateral Bane of Progress

Green Sun's Twilight - mini-Genesis Wave is... mini even if it's 2 mana cheaper. Choice to put into hand can be useful for Eldrazis though.

Invasion of Ixalan  Flip - minor searching effect plus minor beater if you can spare 4 combat damage. I think I pass.

Invasion of Ikoria  Flip - powerful card which has to compete with better searching effects in Green Sun's Zenith and Chord of Calling though. Possibility to have 8/8 beater is tempting but gives opponent 6 life first and that may be relevant.

Tranquil Frillback - another variation of Reclamation Sage effects. Versatile but requires for than 3 mana to compete.

The Shire - funny land for Food-based builds. No real use here especially when Ouphe and Bane are around.

Blossoming Tortoise - it ramps (repeatedly) and lower costs of a number of our lands but takes 4CMC slot which is one of the most crowded. Clearly better when using Rude Awakening.

Bramble Familiar - mana dorks do not really fit into Azusa but this one can turn into quasi-seach effect with some for of buyback. Too slow in my opinion.

Feral Encounter - despite being 2CMC it is designed to be cast on Turn 4 or later. Disqualified.

Flayer of Loyalties - this one is interesting. I'm going to swap second Kozilek for it and test how aggressive/oppressive it can be.

Oh I didn’t even think about Chord of Calling, that’s even better lol

keizerbuns Thanks! Not a bad suggestion, but I do prefer invasion of ixalan as flipping it is easier, can search for some of the more important sideboard non creature cards, and not being able to search for gumdrop poisoner and extraction specialist with invasion of ikoria can be rough. However I did decide to replace Deadeye tracker with Chord of Calling, another substitute of invasion of ikoria

I added in Samut, Vizier of Naktamun as you suggested and removed Mistcutter Hydra. I also removed Inspired Tinkering and added in Mayhem Devil.

I also took out the two pathway lands and added Goldspan Dragon and Chord of Calling into the list.

I'm concerned about if and how I should go about keeping my commander safe, since the treasure ramp would be crucial. I'm also wondering if I should save up some money for a Jeweled Lotus so that I can sometimes turbo out my Ognis, the Dragon's Lash.

Anger and Professional Face-Breaker are in the list, and I'm grateful that you suggested them as it confirms that I should keep them in.

Ogre Battledriver looks like a fun and powerful card to include, but I'm unsure of what card I should cut for it.

You’rec only at 57 cards - you need to be at 60.

The term “toolbox deck” normally describes a deck that has a few 1-of instances of cards, that they have plentiful ways to tutor-up. You’re currently missing any feasible way to reliably get any of these cards from your deck - and without a card like Eladamri's Call or Chord of Calling to help you get these unique cards, you really shouldn’t be running all these 1-ofs (even with some tutors, i think you’re still running a few too many 1-of cards).

Some thoughts:

  • Green Sun's Zenith is not modern legal. Your legal options are Chord of Calling or Finale of Devastation.

  • Naturalize is a sideboard card at-best, as it’ll be useless in a large number of matchups.

  • Your mana curve is very high, and your land count is very low. I’d suggest going up to 23 lands, and reduce the count of cards that cost 4-or-more mana to 4 at-most.
