Mirrorhall Mimic  Flip and Peregrine Drake are must haves in a Volo deck from my experience. Mirrorhall is a clone without the shapeshifter creature type. So Volo’s restriction won’t affect it. Copying peregrine makes boatloads of mana. You tap the lands between the first one untapping them, the 2nd one coming in, and untapping them again. I would also recommend Desolation Twin for your Eldrazi slot as filling the board with a bunch of 10/10s is always nice. Mind Flayer is a salty card, but it’s a spooky monster and “clears” the board. Primordial Sage is a more expensive beast whisperer, but it’s worth having if you aren’t going to run Mirrorhall.

Hey nice deck, I have a similar Bant dungeon deck on Arena. I like how you're using Jaspera Sentinel, might have to steal that idea.

I'd recommend playing 4x Hama Pashar despite it being legendary, as it's the best card in the deck and is a removal magnet. You can get away with more legendary cards in a deck like this since you scry a lot.

I also might recommend putting a little removal in there just to slow the opponent down before you go off. Skyclave Apparition and Mind Flayer are good options since you can get them with Ellywick & they trigger Varis. You might consider playing one or two more copies of Ellywick as well.

Your weakest cards imho are Cloyster Gargolye and Eccentric Apprentice, and the 3-drop spot is already pretty crowded for a deck like this, so if you were looking for things to cut I'd probably start there.

So, I couldn't get my hands on Grazilaxx, Illithid Scholar of the 3 new horrors, but it is definitely the best of the 3 horrors. It not only helps us protect our creatures but it also is a body that gives card draw. Honestly, One of the better horrors to come out in a while.

As for Froghemoth it is a little slow but fits into Atraxa nicely. It fits with our theme, has synergy with Atraxa and has relevant keywords. I don't think it is an auto include but for a horror its decent. Also I like frogs, so im a sucker for this creature.

Mind Flayer honestly is fine but I don't think this is the deck for it. However, it is a fun card to play with. It is nice to take away fliers with so Atraxa has an easier time getting through though. Tapping our mediocre horror creatures to take people's commanders never feels bad. I am playing with this one right now but im not confident it will stay. It definitely has its niche though. If your playgroup is creature heavy maybe this will work better for you than me.
