Hey nice deck! The way i see it you can focus more one one direction of this deck and use the other for support: either auras or equipment. Aura Focus: Add: Archon of Sun's Grace Ashiok's Erasure Boon Satyr Copy Enchantment Curiosity Darksteel Mutation Dissipation Field Hydra's Growth Gift of Paradise Hypnotic Siren Ichthyomorphosis Idyllic Tutor Kenrith's Transformation Plea for Guidance Psychic Impetus Unflinching Courage
Remove: Masterwork of Ingenuity Puresteel Paladin Explorer's Scope Indomitable Archangel Catti-brie of Mithral Hall Resolute Archangel Valiant Endeavor Serum Visions Brainstorm Angelic Gift Unsettled Mariner Cold-Eyed Selkie Military Intelligence
Equipment Focus: Add: Balan, Wandering Knight Behemoth Sledge Belt of Giant Strength Golem-Skin Gauntlets Kemba, Kha Regent Mask of Memory Mirrormade Paradise Mantle Prying Blade Quest for the Holy Relic Whispersilk Cloak
Remove: Resolute Archangel Ajani's Chosen Valiant Endeavor Gryff's Boon Angelic Gift Unsettled Mariner Military Intelligence Cold-Eyed Selkie Serum Visions Brainstorm Explorer's Scope Indomitable Archangel

Me and a friend made some enchantment/aura decks so I can give some aura advice! Ring of Evos Isle and Hydra's Growth work well on their own and only get better when paired! Estrid's Invocation can give some slight protection to a valuable enchantment. Idyllic Tutor, Enlightened Tutor, and Sterling Grove are good tutors. Noble Hierarch Is just a good bant mana dork!

I'd prefer Primordial Hydra to Apex Devastator here. It doesn't need Rancor or Hydra's Growth to pose a serious threat and it pairs well with Kalonian Hydra . Also, cascading into Voracious Hydra is pretty awkward.

Hey, good start and interesting budget version of Vorel. I think you have the right idea with cards such as Stadium, Nexus, Ascension, Kasmina and Zone. The drawback of Fractals is they lack evasion therefore if building around them then consider cards to give your creatures evasion?
- Champion of Lambholt : unblockable and triggers when Fractals are created.
- Herald of Secret Streams : unblockable.
- Archetype of Imagination : flying and can be unblockable.
If attacking with Fractals is a main strategy then consider cards that can give you extra turns?
- Sage of Hours : pair it with Forgotten Ancient or Hydra's Growth .
- Magistrate's Scepter
- Walk the Aeons : now a budget card.
Could expand on other ways to get value from being able to double counters with Vorel.
- Fathom Mage : repeatable draw, pair it with Archmage Ascension .
- Astral Cornucopia
- Everflowing Chalice
Good luck with your deck.

It is true that the deathtouch package will be worse in multiplayer games since you have more threats to deal with. I think siding into a bigger ramp package would be a good idea. I would caution though that it's important to add in more mana dorks or ramp spells to keep pace with any new bombs you include or you'll find yourself mana screwed a lot of the time.
I went ahead and added my creature-based commander deck so I could link it for reference. It was built from a casual 60-card skeleton that's quite similar to your deck, so some of the ramp cards I've had success with over the years might do well here too.
deck: Predator's Toolkit
Prowling Serpopard or Destiny Spinner could be useful tech if counters are flying around left and right. Vigor is definitely strong against board stalls, and I like Archetype of Endurance against a lot of common removal. Somberwald Sage and Elvish Piper would probably be my first picks for dropping haymakers early without much other support. Yeva, Nature's Herald and Seedborn Muse are particularly disgusting in multiplayer since you essentially play on every turn. Some final bombs I love are Whiptongue Hydra for flyers, Polukranos, World Eater for other creatures, and Sylvan Primordial for most anything else.
For your existing ideas, I think Worldspine Wurm is good if your games go long enough to cast it while Tempt with Discovery is good if you don't have opponents who greatly benefit from the mana. I'm still iffy on Lumberknot in a deck not based around token sacrifice, and I'd probably just run Dungrove Elder if you need a midrange hexproof creature. Hydra's Growth is very good with additional +1/+1 synergy, Kazandu Tuskcaller needs more token synergy, and Strixhaven Stadium feels optimistic in multiplayer. For the bigger cards, I think Vigor , Soul of New Phyrexia , Toski, Bearer of Secrets , Verdant Sun's Avatar , and Vivien Reid are all playable. Myojin of Life's Web needs some way to refill the hand or its ability will never do anything that impactful. Impervious Greatwurm is the weakest option since it gets completely stuffed by chump blockers. I used Connive / Concoct to reanimate it in standard and still found it to be too slow. If you had a Warstorm Surge or something, maybe it'd be a different story...
