Cycle of Seasons
Legendary Enchantment - Saga
Permanents enter the battlefield untapped and spells cost less to cast. Whenever a permanent enters the battlefield, draw a card.
Whenever a permanent is tapped for mana, it produces twice that mana instead.
Whenever a triggered ability triggers from a permanent being put into the graveyard from the battlefield, it triggers an additional time.
IV Permanents don't untap until your next turn. At the beginning of your next upkeep, return this card from the graveyard to the battlefield.
Create a card for Monstrous tribal. This could mean actually referring to the supertype Monstrous, or it has something to do with +1/+1 counters, or something else.

I can appreciate this type of deck, having one similar. Without erasing your own personality from the build, I do feel some staples warrant your attention:
Your Dictate of Karametra is begging to be Mana Reflection. Get it now while it is cheap. Not as easy on the budget, but you should definitely add Parallel Lives. Terror of the Peaks has an effect similar to Purphoros while also being a flying threat. you could shift the card advantage from the whole table to yourself only by switching Howling Mine for Guardian Project. Conjurer's Closet can give you ETB triggers every turn, triggering Purphoros/Terror of the Peaks and Guardian Project, all doubled by your Panharmonicon.
If you don't have recursion for the Lotus Petal, maybe an Arcane Signet would be more useful.
Hoping this is helpful!

I think it looks like a dinosaur. I think it is okay for a deck it can go in. Its balance is pretty goof but, I'm a bit tired of all the "double" and "triple" effects we have gotten this yr and last yr. It's kinda boring to me now. How many times will they print a card that resembles Doubling Season or Furnace of Wrath or Mana Reflection. I sick and tired of seeing these effects. Magic is oversaturated with these effects.

Hey there! Kinnan is a super broken and cool commander, and I might just have a few suggestions for you! You might want to try cards like Hinterland Harbor since you have a lot of basics, along with Flooded Grove, Waterlogged Grove, and possibly a Botanical Sanctum! If you have the budget, Ancient Tomb, Prismatic Vista, Reflecting Pool, and Strip Mine would work very well too as I've found in some of my decks. To add to the fun, while Umbral Mantle does indeed go infinite with some dorks, so do Sword of the Paruns and Staff of Domination, tripling the combos in that area! If you want to add to the elf theme, I feel like Elvish Archdruid should definitely be in here, as should Copperhorn Scout. If you attack with copperhorn (keep in mind it's also an elf!) then you untap all your other dorks and get to play A TON of more stuff, even if copperhorn dies it will still surely be worth it! One huge card you are missing is also Leyline of Abundance, acting almost as another Kinnan and getting you way more mana, as well as being a place you can pull infinite mana into for a quick win. Last but not least, I have a bunch of other ramp spells you may want to consider adding! Nyxbloom Ancient, Mana Reflection, (cards like Awakening, Seedborn Muse, and Wilderness Reclamation let you activate your dorks to use on Kinnan on sometimes EVERY PLAYERS TURN AGAIN, giving you multiple turns worth of value by the time its back to you turn again!) and a few more you can find under my decks!. Seems like a cool deck, good luck on it, hope this helps, and have a swell day! Happy tapping!

Now that it's a ~$7 card, have you considered Mana Reflection for this deck?

It may not seem like priest is needed in this build, but is easily one of my best mana producers. I may only run 9 elves, but it tapping for 4-5 makes it worth running at only 2 cmc. I also get Mana Reflection or Nyxbloom Ancient out most games, so it actually generates a ton of mana for me. Another note on it that makes it better particularly for my meta is that it generates mana for all Elves in play, not just mine. So more often than you would think, I'm getting extra mana from my opponents. As for your suggestions :
- Elder Gargaroth - I want to like this card, but the more I see it, the more underwhelming it feels for this deck. I might try playtesting it again one day, but for now it's on the shelf.
- Kamahl, Heart of Krosa - I love this new card a lot, but it doesn't fit this deck. I don't need a passive overrun when the deck is already designed to pump mana into multiple overruns each turn. I am however making a new deck with this and jeska at the helm.
- Helix Pinnacle - I ran this years ago and just didnt like it. In my meta, it's an unneeded wincon. My deck can power through anything my friends throw at me currently, so I'm just sticking to old fashioned brute force.
- Worldspine Wurm - this is another card I ran years ago and ended up dropping it because it wasn't needed. Why spend 11 mana to cast one creature when I can spend 10 of that and give a bunch of creatures +6/+6 and trample? This is however one of my favorite cards in my atla palani deck.
Thank you for taking the time to check out the deck and make some suggestions!

Hey! Maybe consider running Basalt Monolith. You already have Nyxbloom Ancient in the deck, and those two together give you infinite mana. You could also add Mana Reflection, which works swell on its own and also gives infinite mana with Basalt, giving you another way to possibly get infinite mana, with mostly cards that also work well on their own!

Hey I also recently built a Zaxara deck. I'm opting not to run the infinite mana enchantments so my deck differs from yours in power level but I still have a couple suggestions you might like:
Ertai's Meddling not only is it on theme but in a pinch (in a scenario where your opponent could easily pay the mana, or maybe you only have 3 mana leftover after a turn) you can use it as a hard counter even if the suspend counters aren't that high. Any other X spell counter in that scenario would be dead so I think it's a solid include (it's also hilarious to suspend someone's spell for like 10 turns).
On the topic of counterspells, Mana Drain and Plasm Capture are very on theme for gorging a huge amount of mana off someone else to not only offset tempo but also funnel it into an even bigger X-spell/hydra. Drain is pricey for sure so Spell Swindle could be another option as it accomplished the same thing.
Since you're running Protean Hydra I cannot recommend Retribution of the Ancients enough. This card has been an all-star in my deck on its own with by turning all your hydras into removal, but with Protean Hydra specifically it can be used to abuse the second clause of its ability, netting massive amounts of counters alongside the removal. Say for instance you have some leftover mana and an 8/8 Protean Hydra, as long as there is any valid target on the board, right before EoT you can remove all but one counter to hit the creature with -X/-X and then add twice that many back growing the hydra. It's very powerful.
Wilderness Reclamation is a worse Seedborn Muse but does allow you to do one trick that can be pretty powerful. Once the trigger to untap your lands at endstep goes on the stack you can float all your mana, then also use all the mana that just untapped and sink it into a big instant speed X spell which can catch people off-guard. This also works well with flash-enablers like Alchemist's Refuge and/or Winding Canyons which I also recommend.
If you want to check out my list it's here: X Spell Tribal?
Good luck in your games with it!
