Chord of Calling
Convoke (You may tap your creatures as you cast this spell. Each creature you tap while casting this spell pays for or one mana of that creature's colour.)
Search your library for a creature card with converted mana cost/mana value X or less and put it onto the battlefield, then shuffle your library.

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.
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).

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.

You need Chord of Calling so you can cheat your Felidar Sovereign onto the field on your opponent's end step.
Also, 27 lands is not enough. You may need something closer to 34-38.

mclaughlin2408 the symmertrist guy it's just saying when the attack and power are equal they have trample and my old black and green elf deck I had this guy in there just for giggles End-Raze Forerunners and IMO I'd either get the play set of collected company or use Chord of Calling to get out a specific creature you want

I understand the general idea behind the deck; looping undying creatures with Yawg for infinites, but in this video (timestamp 13:20-13:40) I saw AspiringSpike scoop as soon as Yawg hit the table with Young Wolf and Strangleroot Geist, and I don't understand why.
The Yawg player could only loop the two undyers back and forth, essentially paying a life to draw a card each iteration; they had no payoffs on the field, and last I checked there was no Blood Artist effect in red. They didn't even have the mana to Chord of Calling
Is there something in the deck they can cast that wins them the game, or did Spike prematurely scoop?
Best I could tell, they'd loop a couple times, draw some cards, and then Spike could burn them out of the game.

Card I'd consider removing:
Nyxbloom Ancient. The deck has a high average CMC. But by the time you can cast this card, that's not much of a problem anymore. This card is great when you have mana sinks. Which you do not.
Seedborn Muse. Yes it's good with three of your artifacts. I think the slot would be better served with something else.
Gauntlet of Power. You don't need this. It's slow.
Sol Ring. You run so few artifacts/Enchantments, you may just be better off running less of them yourself so you can use mass removal.
Nyx Lotus. Let your lands and creatures do the ramping for you.
Garruk, Savage Herald. You have 22 creatures in your deck. The +1 has a 80% chance of doing nothing the turn you play it. The -ability doesn't matter because most of your creatures are there to support planeswalkers.
Vivien, Arkbow Ranger. Again, lots of small creatures.
Vivien, Champion of the Wilds. The first ability is rather pointless, the static ability only affects creatures. The last ability is occasionally draw a card. Better replaced with something like Worldly Tutor or Natural Order or Chord of Calling.
Sylvan Anthem. Replace this with a win condition like Craterhoof Behemoth, Thunderfoot Baloth, Overrun, Tribal Forcemage, Kamahl, Heart of Krosa, Song of Freyalise, Pathbreaker Ibex, End-Raze Forerunners, Overwhelming Stampede

Oh, this question was strictly aimed at them being sideboard options. Both options are a little too narrow for me to be considered for the main (nothing feels worse than drawing a dead card).
Of all the "meta decks" in modern, Test of Talents is good against:
while being relevant as a hate card against their instant/sorcery sideboard options or playsets of just general problem instant/sorceries (mill, conterspell decks, etc.)
On the other hand, Hallowed Moonlight is good against:
Cascade like Living End since they all cheat in creatures as an end result
most reanimation strategies
any creature "tutor" cards like Finale of Devastation, Chord of Calling, Eldritch Evolution, Collected Company
any "infinite" creature combos for the turn at least
so, as you can see, there's quite a bit of overlap between the two cards. It almost comes down to if you want the tempo of the cantrip or want to fully remove their threat. Hallowed Moonlight's replacement effect of exiling also neuters any kind of setup which is worth mentioning as well, since that can often buy enough time to win that they don't get to cast a second copy anyway.
There's a few pros and cons to each option, and I am really struggling to determine which is "better" in a vacuum.
