Otherwise, the deck seems pretty solid. +1 from me.

So what exactly are you going for with this deck? The title says Voltron, but I'm seeing a lot of stuff that's all over the place. What is your deck's game plan?
That being said, whatever the plan is, I cannot recommend enough copies of Deflecting Swat and Flawless Maneuver. When your commander is 6-cmc you really want to make sure it doesn't get shot, so having these spells will let you tap out to play Aurelia safely.

I am only saying this because you mentioned this is your first Commander deck: going down the infinite combo route and playing this many tutors will result in very similar games for you. If consistency is your focus that can be a good thing, but if it is your only deck it can get repetitive fast.
In most cases, Memory Jar makes all your opponents draw 7 and discard 7 cards when you trigger it. That can be a win for you with the right setup.. I second Bloodchief Ascension as mentioned above, with or without Mindcrank.
Consider adding either Teferi's Protection or Flawless Maneuver. You may want to Invest some space for spot removal like Vindicate and Anguished Unmaking or Despark. As for mass removal, you may find Winds of Abandon more satisfying than Fumigate if you have a board.
Finally, I think you would like Sangromancer. I do.
Hope you find something useful, welcome to the Commander format!

@king-saproling oh boy you threw out a bunch of cards without explaining any of them. Since you were nice enough to comment, let me explain my thoughts on them.
Short version: I don't like any of them.
Long version: I've already got a good amount of protection spells in my deck, including the two free ones that came from C20, so I don't feel the need for extra protection spells, especially ones that feel rather mediocre like the ones you mentioned. Getting more combats out of them with Aurelia is cute, but still doesn't make them any better than the protection spells I'm currently running (Deflecting Swat, Flawless Maneuver, Boros Charm, Teferi's Protection). Lapse of Certainty feels like it falls into the same category, I think I like Deflecting Swat much better.
The spells that let you either end the turn/take an extra turn but then you lose the game feel a bit too all-in for me. My deck can win just fine without them, and I'm not abusing any sort of combo. I have thought of angel's grace before, but it still feels a bit too situational for my liking. Most of the game it's gonna sit dead in my hand.
I'm not a fan of tap lands, so I actually cut Mistveil Plains from the list (the only tap land I play is Myriad Landscape because it's decent ramp). I also cut Signal Pest from the deck a while ago since it's cute, but not much better than that. Hero of Bladehold has a battlecry effect that's way more powerful. Treasonous Ogre is also way too all-in, and if I want a red ritual-type spell then I would look into Jeska's Will or Neheb, the Eternal or Mana Geyser before I woud consider the ogre. Knollspine Dragon is a cute wheel effect, but it's a whopping 7 mana. When you take a look at my two 7-mana spells in my current deck, they are game-winning powerful. The dragon isn't nearly as good as either of them. Then the big 5-mana damage enchantments I'd much rather have on a creature, which you can see is the case with my list.
So thanks for all the suggestions, but unfortunately I'm not a fan of pretty much any of the cards you suggested in Aurelia.

Wrath of God is an okay boardwipe, but really you don't want to potentially devastate your board AND have to wait a turn to rebuild. Most of the time something cheaper will be better - Pyroclasm if you know you're going to face weenies or RDW or something of the like, or Blasphemous Act for just more general decks. Frankly, Blasphemous Act will potentially be worth a mere most of the time against Krenko or Thalisse even. Plus it hits them as well.
Idyllic Tutor finds you an enchantment, but what enchantment do you need? Again, you're playing an aggro deck so you shouldn't be taking your turn 2 or 3 to set up for later; you should be butting heads with anyone and everyone.
Torment of Hailfire is looking so shady here. It's a mid-lategame card that's meant to be used in tandem with heavy removal and attrition, and you're just chucking it in here as what? some sort of a finisher? Sure, it could be a finisher, but I think it needs to be somewhat built around / synergised with to actually be a viable pickup.
Rootborn Defenses is to make your stuff indestructible. First off, there's cards that do the same thing for less, and there's even cards that do more for the same price - Make a Stand, Flawless Maneuver, Ready / Willing or even Heroic Intervention. Populate is going to be pretty inconsistent in this deck too, as there's only a small handful of token generators in the deck, so why not swap it out (or remove it, even) for something more efficient
Jegantha, the Wellspring is 5 mana for a max of 3 mana per turn (estimate). With so few early ramp cards, how do you expect to consistently hit 5 mana on turn 5, 4, even 3? He may be neat, and help you ramp but you need to get him in play first. I just don't think he's worth in this deck. It's a 5-colour deck, but doesn't have a strong mana base. Also an aggro deck, so a 5 mana mana dork will kinda throw off your tempo anyway
Evolving Wilds, Fabled Passage, Terramorphic Expanse, Renegade Map, Burnished Hart, Solemn Simulacrum, Yavimaya Elder, Sakura-Tribe Elder all find little to nothing. Maybe if you add in some more basics, keep Fabled Passage and Solemn Simulacrum but not the others. The reason for these caards is to thin your deck, but thin them from basics, so if you have minimal basics to begin with you're not really consistently thinning (given that the chance of drawing all your basics is exceptionally higher than it would be with, say 10+ basic lands). Fabled Passage and Solemn Simulacrum give, for sure, the highest value so that's why I suggest to keep just them.

Hiya! A few suggestions for the deck: 1) In EDH we want to be able to hit our land drop every turn of the game. With only 30 lands, this deck is unlikely to do that, so I recommend upping your land count up to 36-37. 2) You're still a bit short on card advantage and a bit short on ramp. I recommend upping those by a bit more. You could also use another board wipe. Path to Exile and Winds of Abandon are some of the individual cards I recommend. The latter doubles as both single-target removal and a one-sided board wipe. I also highly recommend Wheel of Misfortune as, if you play it smart, it can be better than Wheel of Fortune. 3) You're already playing Flawless Maneuver, I recommend playing Deflecting Swat as well. You're already playing Akroma's Will, I also recommend Jeska's Will.

Here are a few of my thoughts: Seeing that Wyleth incentivizes you to go all in on Wyleth, there are a few things Wyleth appreciates. 1) Number 1 priority is protecting Wyleth. Wyleth has no inherent protection, and will become the target of removal when you get a ton of equipment an auras onto it. I think Mother of Runes and Giver of Runes are both excellent inclusions for this. Sejiri Shelter Flip can double as a land but also be a protection spell. Depending on your budget, Deflecting Swat and Flawless Maneuver are both excellent options for protecting Wyleth (for free!). 2) Wyleth really appreciates free equips. You're already running Ardenn and Sigarda's aid. Brass Squire is another good one to include. Hammer of Nazahn also free equips your equipment when they enter the battlefield. Magnetic Theft is okay, but only works once. Auriok Windwalker is a bit more clunky but also gets the job done. 3) Wyleth really appreciates haste. You want to slam down Wyleth, get him suited up, and be swinging in right away to get the card draw ability, so haste is very appreciated. You've already got a handful of equipment that give haste. Crashing Drawbridge is an excellent creature that blocks early and gives haste. There are enchantments that can give haste like Fervor and Hammer of Purphoros. There are other creatures that do it like Anger, Urabrask the Hidden, or even the land enchantment Footfall Crater.
So that's a lot of card suggestions, and I'm not suggesting you run all of them. Make sure you have the best options from each category and that you have enough of them.
