Crucible of Worlds
You may play land cards from your graveyard.

SufferFromEDHD, did you say profet? :)
I am not too familiar with the newer cards but there was a 12 mana card that seems right up your alley given all your ramp.
How about some super mild control like Winter Orb to keep your opponents in check and bait removal prior to you ramping unaffected by artifacts?

I think that this deck list is still a bit unfocused. It is basically saying that it wants to stall things out and win with poison counters, and it has the Magistrate's Scepter + Coretapper + Atraxa, Praetors' Voice combo for infinite turns, but there are a number of cards included that will only do synergistic things some of the time that will water down your meaningful draws.
Some cards to consider to increase your potential to kill with poison counters include Evolution Sage, Tekuthal, Inquiry Dominus, Inexorable Tide, and Phyresis Outbreak. I'm also kind of partial to Viral Drake. Tekuthal can act as an alternative to Coretapper for your Magistrate's Scepter combo.
I think that a lot of your STAX stuff will often feel lackluster since you aren't running any support to help you break parity on them. To get the most out of Winter Orb and Stasis it helps to have cards such as Nature's Will or Sword of Feast and Famine. There are also cards that tap down permanents/artifacts that you can use to tap down the Orbs at the end of your opponent's turn so that you can untap all your lands on your turn.
Cards that drain life like Scheming Aspirant and Bloodchief Ascension probably aren't worth it if you are trying to kill with poison counters. The life gain that you get off them is also pretty negligible. Although, if you had Mindcrank to combo with the Ascension it could function as a backup win condition.
You don't actually run that many cards that put counters on themselves or other cards you control, so Power Conduit and Soul Diviner look pretty lackluster on the basis of them not likely being consistent value when you draw into them.
I don't know what your commander meta is like, but in general there isn't a lot of targeted land destruction in casual games. Tomik, Distinguished Advokist will rarely be of any worth in most casual groups unless you regularly play against someone who uses cards like Crucible of Worlds to net value off of fetch lands and utility lands.
You have very few artifacts that send themselves to the graveyard. I think there is an argument to be made that you will rarely get much value out of Glissa, the Traitor's ability, even taking into consideration the possibility of getting back artifacts that opponents destroy. Still a decent blocker I guess. A more general effect like Eternal Witness in that slot may provide more consistent value though.
Those are just a few suggestions. I could think of more once I have a better idea of how you are looking to develop the deck further.

BakingIsPunk13: No problem. Just a couple things I noticed that I thought I'd point out. Commander's Sphere is not something I'd put in a mono color deck. In my opinion, there's better options for mono-colored mana ramp that I'd rather include, stuff like Marble Diamond or the about-to-be-reprinted Pearl Medallion. Not to mention THE most important card in EDH: Sol Ring!
Why is Altar of Dementia here? Is the plan to sacrifice a bunch of angels to mill someone out? I'd think if you have that much power on the board, you should be able to win the old-fashioned way, no?
Unless I'm missing something, I'm not quite sure what Crucible of Worlds is doing in here. In the context of your deck alone, all it does is allow you to re-use Fabled Passage. Was there another use? General note about lands, since so many of your angels are a high mana cost, I'd definitely look into increasing your land count, even with ramp artifacts.
Some other random cards you might like:
Monologue Tax : Since you have Smothering Tithe
Swiftfoot Boots: Since you have Lightning Greaves
Moonsilver Spear + Seraphic Greatsword
Return to Dust + Disenchant
Door of Destinies
Path to Exile + Generous Gift
Mana Tithe + Rebuff the Wicked
Side note, you don't need to include Brisela, Voice of Nightmares Meld Meld as its own creature, since you have the two halves of it in the creature list. After that, I'm only seeing 97 cards + Giada. Might want to double check your list ;)

Alright, this is very much taking shape. What I would like feedback on, are the follwing ideas
3: This probably takes the deck full competitive, and would push for less win conditions and more counter spells, and other cuts. The anthems provide some protection early game.
Drop the 5 anthems (Cathars' Crusade, Flowering of the White Tree, Glorious Anthem, Inquisitor Greyfax, and Spear of Heliod... I want to keep Marshal's Anthem for recurring Mondrak, Glory Dominus) and add more protection for Marneus Calgar amd or more infinite mana combos.
- Protection: Swiftfoot Boots and Lightning Greaves (2 cards, leaving 3 for infinte combos)
- Infinite mana: Not sure what the best configuration to add:
- Phyrexian Altar is only good enough with both Mondrak, Glory Dominus and Anointed Procession in play (8 tokens for , sacrifice 6 for another go, then infinite). Alternively it needs Training Grounds or Pitiless Plunderer in play. The later is a nice addition since it strenghtens Revel in Riches position in the deck.
- Basalt Monolith + Rings of Brighthearth for infinite mana. The monolith is pretty much only useful for this scenario, while Rings of Brighthearth can be used with Marneus Calgar and Ashnod's Altar for infinite as well. Also useful alone when just searching for answers with Marneus Calgar
- Other thoughts
- Laboratory Maniac should be added as win condition if I add more infinite combos. Seems unnecessary, but could replace other conditions. Are there any compelling arguments?
- Altar of Dementia could be a spiteful win condition as well. Seems unnecessary, but could replace other conditions. Are there any compelling arguments?
Advice please? Does this go full retard?

My suggestions are based on not spending an arm and a leg to make improvements but maybe a finger or toe.
At a quick glance the first comment I have is lands seem a little low. I personally lean towards 36 if the deck isn't mono colored.
I know they are a bit slower but I would suggest using the tri colored lands as you are already using fetches. These lands add some real good color fixing early on and if they do become dead in hand cycle them away. Spara's Headquarters, Zagoth Triome, Indatha Triome and Raffine's Tower. I would replace your lands that reference the opponent count to come in untapped.
A land that goes on theme is Mirrex since it can get you mites as the game drags on. A second land I recommend since your land base is so varied is Field of the Dead, the zombies can add up and are nice little chumps if need be.
With the above changes I would say Crucible of Worlds but if you find sometimes you struggle to have something to play Conduit of Worlds is an extra mana but has the ability to give you the chance to cast something when you might not have anything else to work with.
I would personally go full Praetor and run each variation if possible for the big flavor. The added benefit is each one of them is practically game warping, but be warned it can attract a lot of attention. The newest Vorinclex is probably the odd man out though since he only finds basic forests and Dominaria Sheoldred simply because of price. Added benefits of the new praetors is you can accelrate their saga. Realmbreaker, the Invasion Tree would then make a very nice inclusion if you go that way.
Cards to consider dumping for them from what I can at a first glance are Flesh-Eater Imp, Plague Stinger, Septic Rats and Slaughter Singer. I chose these because I don't feel once they hit the board they are something that people say "this needs to die".
Norn's Choirmaster is a recent card that gives your commander even more of a presence on the board.
On the sorcery since the only card that I don't like the look of is Nature's Lore, sure it is a cheap way to get you your colors especially if you have dual typed lands but if we are upping the land count I would switch it to a Skyshroud Claim since it can find you the same lands but untapped if the land can come in untapped for mana efficiency.
The biggest suggestion on the instant side would be to add Krosan Grip over Infectious Bite. Sure the bite is a form of removal and poison generation but I find having one of the best artifact/enchantment removals is the better option.
I understand the suggestion fromm KongMing as a strong one but I don't think it works the way he intended it Temporal Distortion does put counters on their lands but it removes ALL of them not just one so even if you proliferate it doesn't keep the lands tapped down longer unless you destroy your own enchantment.
Astral Cornucopia is nice with since you can keep building it but getting only one color out of it can be problematic at times. I suggest replacing with a Crystalline Crawler if you are find being a little off theme.
I would find a home for Chromatic Lantern, having one artifact to fix all of your mana problems is very nice especially when in more than two colors.
Overall there are a couple of other cards I would recommend to consider but unsure of an exact home without taking apart every step. Grafted Exoskeleton, Tainted Strike, if you go the praetor route Geth's Summons is a great reanimation spell of you have the corrupted. Yawgmoth's Vile Offering is also a very strong spell for reanimation and removal. Inexorable Tide should probably have a home somewhere, it is a bit high CMC but it gets the job done. As Foretold also helps a lot of mana problems, do keep in mind it can also be used off turns if you have instant speed spells.

Super nice deck my dude. Skitherix is just a nasty card. Lol. Especially since infect damage stays at 10 despite the format being commander. If you're running Armageddon, it's always nice to have a Crucible of Worlds so you can play your land card from your graveyard to regrow yours more consistently than your opponents. Have you considered Conjurer's Closet and Panharmonicon to take advantage of your ETBs? And then Isshin, Two Heavens as One to double Kaalia's affect, and then Aurelia, the Warleader to give you multiple combat phases. Aggravated Assault and Sword of Feast and Famine to give you infinite combat phases and infinite mana.

Greed is a little slow, but I have enjoyed using it in games and will happily pay a black mana and two life for cards until I die.
I have not used Street Wraith in a game, though I hope to see it will play well as a swampwalking body or one less card in the deck. To be determined if it will stay.
