Cut the basic lands. Add pretty much any non basic in their place. This will let you mill your entire library with Hermit Druid. If you have Muldrotha out you then cast Thassa's Oracle from your yard to win the game. Or, with 3 creatures on board, you can flash back Dread Return.
A copy of Phyrexian Delver will let you form a back up hulk pile around the Mikaeus, the Unhallowed Walking Ballista combo by using Protean Hulk to find Delver and Viscera Seer, using the delver to bring back Hulk, sacking hulk to seer, and finding Mikaeus and ballista.
As for non combo related additions, Nihil Spellbomb is pretty much a strictly better version of Soul-Guide Lantern in this deck where you can recur them. Your only playing 9 peices of ramp in the deck with a 6 mana commander that seems to be your main value engine. I would recommend adding more with cards like Millikin and Deranged Assistant.Also run Simic Signet and the talismans in your colors like Talisman of Curiosity. ETB effects like Wood Elves and Elvish Rejuvenator may also be good. Your in green so mana dorks are very good. Elves of Deep Shadow and Arbor Elf in particular. Expedition Map may be worth playing due to your ability to recur it and find any land you want to your hand.
At 6 mana you also have to be able to protect your commander once she hits the board to keep from getting blown out. You have a few cards that do this already but Voidmage Prodigy is a very versatile card that can sacrifice itself and be recurred. Swiftfoot Boots is also a good effect for this.
As for general cuts, Avenger of Zendikar, Blood Artist, Zulaport Cutthroat, Tombstone Stairwell don't help you get to your combos faster, don't slow down your opponenets, and arent involved in any combos I can see myself. While Blood Artist, Zulaport Cutthroat can be used as replacements for Disciple of the Vault in your persit combo, they can't be included in the hulk pile and don't contribute to any of your other combos.
I don't think you need 3 edict creatures in the deck so maybe cut Merciless Executioner. If you find you need that density than keep it but its going to kind of be a dead card if you can cast one of the others from your graveyard already.
I generally want my removal to actually get rid of the thing in EDH though it is worth noting you can use these effects to bounce your own commander to save it if need be. Aether Spellbomb and Seal of Removal are possible cuts but not neccessarilly. Recommend something like Shriekmaw or Executioner's Capsule if you do feel like removing it. Beast Within is also a good card, even if it doesn't synergize extremely well with your commander.

Sneak Attack now loses sight of Progenitus and thus you don't sac him at the end of turn. Easy peasy lemon squeezy. With the amount of tutors you have in WUBRG, you can land this practically every single game. There's more efficient ways, also. Goryo's Vengeance would be ideal. Get Pro into your hand and discard him. Then flicker at end of turn.
Green has plenty of ways to tutor out non-basic lands, too, ensuring you always find Beacon. For example, Crop Rotation, Scapeshift, Hour of Promise and Expedition Map. Not to mention you can always just tutor a land via .
Then, it's as simple as dumping Gods into play. Because Gods count their own pips with regards to devotion, you only ever need +1 or +2 more.
A mono-colored God such as Heliod, God of the Sun, for example, needs 5 and counts his own. So with Pro in play, you need more. Comparatively, Pharika, God of Affliction needs 7x total in any combination of and . She already contains , so she needs a total of 5 more. Pro contains , bumping her devotion count up to +6. She literally needs +1 more pip to be online.
So yes, in my opinion Progenitus is the "Best" God Tribal Commander.
But, for me, Golos is more fun.

Goryo in response. ;)

Yeah, 2/24 lands allow you to play 16 of your creatures when you name Eldrazi, but every other card in your deck would be dead, especially if you didn't happen to have one of those 2 lands in your opening hand.
I'm just saying it might be worth considering a basic Swamp or something. You produce colorless with basically all of your lands, so you don't really need a basic that does colorless as much (still need Wastes for Blood Moon since at least Expedition Map is another virtual 4 copies of Wastes).
For instance you could replace 1 Wastes with literally any other basic land, then you could pre-play Expedition Map and crack it with any mana to find the singular colored mana source that would allow you to play around Void Mirror with all of your artifacts etc.

You could also use Expedition Map type effects to get lands and let you shuffle. Also suggest Windfall, because it can kill out the table. Could also suggest maybe Narset, Parter of Veils as a stop button in case your commander gets killed (also very good with scroll rack). Psychosis Crawler could Also be very useful. Maybe Torbran, Thane of Red Fell would speed up your Clock. Those are not directly related to what you asked originally, but they're things to consider. Hope it helps

Banding is always funny.
For ramp, one of my favorite monowhite cards is Oath of Lieges. Sure, it can help opponents, but group hugs are what banding is all about, right??? There are some of the classic artifacts people have mentioned, but I want to put Burnished Hart, Sword of the Animist, Wayfarer's Bauble, Monologue Tax and Terrain Generator on your radar. Oh, and Expedition Map to grab the Cathedral. Generally, I think 7-9 pieces of dedicated ramp in an EDH deck is about right, depending on the speed, colors, and avg cmc.
Outside of ramp, War Elephant would be good just to have a trample ability out on a creature. Nemesis Mask can make sure Abu Ja'far can really do some damage. You could also try out the totem armor enchantments to make it easier to reuse Abu in this way. Trapjaw Tyrant would also be funny in a band. Other than that, the only things that come to mind are Felidar Retreat, Kismet, Mass Calcify/Tragic Arrogance, and Blinding Light .

Thank you for the rich feedback Beware!
I take your point on Sol Ring and Sol Talisman, although the former does help get Athreos online on turn 2 as well as accelerate how quickly the bigger spells are played like Phyrexian Altar, Remembrance, Angel of Glory's Rise, and anything else above 4 Mana in general. Sol Talisman I was trying on in place of Land Tax or an unconditional draw spell like Night's Whisper. It's cute in a bad way so I agree with you that it needs to go.
Black Market is OK. It's just helping me with mana at a point when I don't need it much anymore. Still, the mana package here feels raw so I'll play around with it again and see if it feels like a better functional fit as I do like how on theme it is.
Expedition Map is a personal preference. I like being able to grab Cabal Coffers or Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth to power up mana. I also have found being able to grab a Bojuka Bog pretty helpful against graveyard decks. And weirdly enough, snatching Vault of the Archangel has helped me several times to deter aggro with deathtouch capable Shadowborn Apostles or improve survivability with lifelink. Finally, there are games where lack of lands can be an issue and it gives me an out to those corner cases to stay on curve or fix mana colors.
I have never had a problem with Dark Confidant. Nearly 83 cards in the deck are 2 mana value or less so the damage is often negligible especially when our life total matters as little as it does in a combo build. In a pinch, I can sac it to Razaketh, the Foulblooded, Diabolic Intent, Phyrexian Altar, or Skullclamp when draw is no longer necessary. I'm comfortable with this risk profile particularly with fair access to lifegain as from Blood Artist, Zulaport Cutthroat, and Vault of the Archangel.
I'm going to take your advice on a few of these suggestions and I really appreciate the years of experience behind your feedback. Thank you!
