Other than that, reducing stax effects, like Eidolon of Rhetoric could lower the power level of your deck.
Also there are some cards I can think of that you could look at that would help lower the power level while still being fun and I would say powerful: Caustic Caterpillar, Vivien's Arkbow, Spore Frog, and Greenseeker.

Mythos of Snapdax seems too restrictive. Another boardwipe sounds much better. Still a low costing one such as Wrath of God, or the new one from commander legends that's mono white and 5 mana Slash the Ranks.
Aphemia, the Cacophony isn't that good.
With your low curve and many rocks I'd cut a land or cut the two Diamonds as they're kinda bad. Sadly. They're acceptable in mono colored but not really here.
Alseid of Life's Bounty is just great. Protects either Ghen or an enchantment you don't want dying at that time.
Agent of Erebos: Some much needed gravehate.
Aegis of the Gods is good for protection against direct burn.
I have many more recommendations but these are the start. I don't want to particularly overwhelm or change the deck.
GL my guy.

And, TriusMalarky, you said 't1 Elvish Mystic, t3 Vannifar'. Couldn't I use t2 Sylvan Caryatid instead of Elvish Mystic, or t1 Arboreal Grazer? I don't like Elvish Mystic just because it is a green mana for tapping.
I think a lot of my cards would benefit from blinking or tapping then untapping. Is there a slang term in MTG for tapping and untapping? I know that exiling and retrieving is called 'blink' and putting a card back into its owners hand is called 'bounce'.
I'm thinking about running more of these two types of cards that I can blink or untap and tap. If I have a combo of tapping and untapping with Combat Celebrant, I can get many combat turns before my opponent even takes a turn.

Angel of Invention can be a 4/3 flying vigilant lifelinker who buffs everything. Or a 2/1 flying vigilant lifelinker who brings along a 2/2 and a 2/2 for a total of 6 points of power. You can play both easily.
If you go for Prime Speaker Vannifar you untap with them. Play any 2 drop for ETB. Sacrifice it to Vannifar to get Krasis. Krasis untaps Vannifar and you tap Vannifar again sacrificing Krasis. Krasis gets Hippo and Hippo untaps Vannifar. You sac hippo to Vanifar and get a 5 drop.
Giving people control of stuff is not a thing that happens in competative magic at all really so it isnt an actual concern. It is worth having some removal as creatures tho. Reflector Mage is a solid target as it gives you a lot of tempo.
Why do you think Inverter being given to you is an issue? For one its banned. Secondly it being donated doesnt do anything.

Hey everyone, I’ll chime in as well. I first became interested in commander when I picked up the Kaalia of the Vast precon a few years ago. Ever since then I’ve been working on making my Kaalia deck as effective as possible. Recently I dove into cEDH and I changed my deck from a traditional aggro build to a hybrid aggro-stax build and I’m very happy with it. Kaalia can be slower than other super fast competitive decks, but with the stax elements I can slow down other players enough to beat them down. An interesting combo is Rule of Law or Eidolon of Rhetoric with Possibility Storm. If your opponents don’t stop you from pulling off the combo, they can no longer play any spells, and you can proceed to beat their faces in.
Here’s the deck if anyone is interested: KAALIA'S CATACLYSM (Mardu Aggro Stax)
Besides Kaalia, recently I discovered Tinybones, Trinket Thief (who I call the Tiny Punisher because he can kill every other player single-handedly and reminds me of a tiny Frank Castle lol) and I had to design a deck around it. I focus on discard and stax effects with the goal of dealing damage with Tinybones or assembling a lethal combo. If Leyline of the Void is in play, and you spend at least 1 on Helm of Obedience’s triggered ability, you exile a player’s entire library instantly! My playgroup has seen me pull this off and it strikes fear into their hearts lol. Another insta-kill combo is Bolas's Citadel plus Aetherflux Reservoir and Sensei's Divining Top. You use the Top to draw a card and place it on the top of your deck, then cast the Top from the top of your deck with the Citadel for 1 life, then use the Top again to draw a card and place it on the top of your deck, etc. Eventually you draw your entire deck and the Resevoir will allow you to gain more life than you lose with the Citadel. Then you can easily kill each opponent with the Resevoir.
Feel free to check out the deck: TINYBONES: TINY PUNISHER (Mono-Black Stax)

I know you're leaning towards GU/RG but maybe consider a commander who also includes white. Along with hatepieces already listed, things like Spirit of the Labyrinth Rule of Law, Deafening Silence and Eidolon of Rhetoric will prevent players from comboing off if they need to cast an additional spell per turn. Maybe think about Grand Arbiter Augustin IV or Derevi, Empyrial Tactician

I've always had a soft-spot for land destruction. Mana Vortex is quite possibly my very favourite.
But, upon the deck! Aven Mindcensor is always a splendid lock-piece. Leonin Arbiter is a nuisance, Sanctum Prelate can be quite fun, Angel of Jubilation makes any Chainer player weep, Rule of Law or Eidolon of Rhetoric are both enticing, Spirit of the Labyrinth maintains equality, and Crackdown is oft one-sided for strategies such as this.
Ravages of War is another one as addition, if it is to be in the budget.
I have my own commander taxes list if you care to peer upon it.
Enjoy the suffrage! And do remember, fun is relative.
