Leyline of Anticipation
If Leyline of Anticipation is in your opening hand, you may begin the game with it on the battlefield.
You may cast nonland cards as though they had flash. (You may cast them at any time you could cast an instant.)

Leyline of Anticipation Discussion

Enabling instant speed ETBs is super powerful and a ton of fun ;)
Temur Sabertooth is a must include IMO, it puts in a ton of work and is a pain in the ass for your opponents to destroy.

In case it wasn't clear, and since I can't edit:
Most of the time that is going to be you since enchantments are usually only able to be cast on your main phase. However; if you have Vedalken Orrery , Leyline of Anticipation , blink Null Chamber on an opponent's turn, or somehow else make it ETB on an opponent's turn you may not be the active player. In this case the active player, or the next player in turn that is involved in the decisions, makes their choice first and then each other involved player in turn order.

At least give the Leyline of Anticipation and Alchemist's Refuge a shot. One can be free at the beginningofthe game, the other is hard to interact with and is never as good a target as a flipped Primal Amulet Flip or a Cabal Coffers

I would cut Leyline of Anticipation since ur deck has flash with your commander. Maybe include some ways to exile him at instant speed for safes.

Lots of nice things here.
Palinchron goes infinite with Yarok, so I'd recommend that.
I think Villainous Wealth is just a bad card. I think there a better things to be doing with infinite mana. Without infinite mana it's just not strong enough unless X = 15 or something. And in that case I would rather play Torment of Hailfire .
Vivien, Champion of the Wilds gives creatures flash, but that's already granted by Leyline of Anticipation and Alchemist's Refuge . I don't think you need a 3rd redundant effect like this. Vivien is also much more vulnerable than these two other cards.
Force of Negation can be replaced with Swan Song and I think it would just be better. Force of Negation is a strong card, but I don't think you need to be concerned with it unless your deck is angled towards having 1) tons of blue cards and 2) wants to counter many things.
I think your list doesn't contain enough ramp.

My two cents.
My version of this deck also includes the flash enablers like Leyline of Anticipation and Vedalken Orrery so I can keep up counter mana or recur spells with Tasigur's ability. I also have Primal Amulet Flip to double up on important X spells.

The one bit of advice I would give is to think of Alela like a slivers deck, in that each enchantment or artifact gives you a 1/1 body with an effect. From there, you can start making some objective decisions about what you want your "slivers" to look like. I've put together a rough draft myself that's a little heavier on the enchantress side, but here are some of the cards on my short list I don't see here:
Anointed Procession - Imagine a 1/1 Sliver for 4 that makes a token whenever you play a sliver. Would definitely make most casual sliver decks.
True Conviction - Hey, it's Bonescythe Sliver and Siphon Sliver in one! You get the idea.

Have you heard of Whitemane Lion ? With Chulane it's a 2 mana repeatable instant speed growth spiral. On a similar note Stonecloaker does a similar thing however it also eats cards from graves at instant speed. If you're feeling spiky you can combine these cards with Aluren to draw your entire library and drop every land into play. It shouldn't be hard to win from there with Laboratory Maniac , Jace, Wielder of Mysteries , or even Altar of the Brood . Just remember Chulane's ability is mandatory so you'll have to remove him before you go for the win or you might draw yourself to death.
There are a few hate cards I'm surprised you haven't included like Gaddock Teeg , Remorseful Cleric , Containment Priest , Leonin Arbiter , Linvala, Keeper of Silence , Rest in Peace , Archon of Valor's Reach , and Aura Shards . The newer Ranger-Captain of Eos pulls his weight as well by grabbing dorks and accessory creatures like Giant Killer while having the ability to entirely shut down non-creature spells which is great for comboing out that turn or just preventing a board wipe from an opponent on their turn.
Simple tax effects as well give you lots of time to set up Chulane and start slamming creatures down for some great value. Cards like Aura of Silence , Thalia, Guardian of Thraben , Vryn Wingmare , Thorn of Amethyst , Suppression Field , Kataki, War's Wage , Energy Flux , etc.
I think flash is the greatest strength a creature based deck can have so I suggest trying out Vivien, Champion of the Wilds , Vedalken Orrery , Leyline of Anticipation , or Yeva, Nature's Herald to go alongside your Teferi.
Lastly you should include Eternal Witness as some grave recursion and you can abuse the body via bonce or Sun Titan.
