Welcome to the club, BIAxKatana!
Obligatory caveat that I'm not a Commander expert, so I might be missing some details. My first thought on looking at this deck is that there might be too many payoffs and not enough support. While cards like Exploration and Burgeoning are generally good ramp, with only 33 lands, minimal land searching, and not much repeatable draw, I don't expect this deck to get more than a couple of extra land drops each match.
How reliable are Fist of Suns and Jodah, Archmage Eternal for you? They combo well with Morophon, the Boundless, so how quickly can you get them and a full color suite active? Is it better to play Esika, God of the Tree Flip or The Prismatic Bridge Flip?
There could be some bad interactions between your counterspells and Mana Maze. Mana Maze supports your colorless creatures, but unless an opponent is playing heavy , countering one of their spells basically resets Mana Maze.

"Comanderness" is an attribute of the physical card, not a characteristic of the creature. You can cast Fierce Guardianship for free if your commander is Jin-Gitaxias Flip and you have flipped him to be The Great Synthesis Flip
903.3. Each deck has a legendary creature card designated as its commander. This designation is not a characteristic of the object represented by the card; rather, it is an attribute of the card itself. The card retains this designation even when it changes zones. Example: A commander that’s been turned face down (due to Ixidron’s effect, for example) is still a commander. A commander that’s copying another card (due to Cytoshape’s effect, for example) is still a commander. A permanent that’s copying a commander (such as a Body Double, for example, copying a commander in a player’s graveyard) is not a commander.

When Jin-Gitaxias Flip flips to its saga face, becoming an enchantment, does it still count as having your commander in play? Would casting a Fierce Guardianship then be free, or should I pay the whole cost?

That is incorrect. Sagas enter the battlefield with a lore counter on them only if they are a Saga as they enter the battlefield. Jin-Gitaxias Flip does not enter the battlefield with a lore counter on it. Causing it to transform does not put a lore counter on it. This is why Jin's ability exiles it and returns it transformed; it enters the battlefield as a Saga when you do (and so enters with a lore counter).

This works, but its even easier than you've described.
This means you'd only need 3 mana on Umbral Mantle to complete the saga with Satsuki, the Living Lore, as you'll only need to untap Satsuki once (Jin-Gitaxias flips and starts on 1 counter, Satsuki ticks it up to 2, Mantle lets you untap Satsuki which can then tick your saga up to 3 and complete it).
As soon as the Saga is completed, it will flip back to Jin-Gitaxias, and then immediately flip back to its saga side with 1 counter on it again.

Jin-Gitaxias Flip is an example of the new cards with sagas on the back. Maskwood Nexus + Vildin-Pack Alpha should let it enter then transform it so it would have no saga counters. Satsuki, the Living Lore should let me add saga counters, then using something to untap it Umbral Mantle and nine mana would let it complete the saga and then flicker back as Jin-Gitaxias Flip and flip again. is there any reason this would not work?
