Destroy all creatures, then create an X/X colourless Horror artifact creature token, where X is the number of creatures destroyed this way.
Phyrexian Rebirth Discussion

Okay, let's give a few starters.. Adding Rienne seems to be not such a great choice. Your amount of multicoloured creatures is, aside from her, only 9... and you should remove Tahngarth, First Mate for sure, perhaps Emmara Tandris too, since the big tokens might nog necessarily care TOO much for not receiving damage, especially for 7 mana. So I'd take Rienne out.
Taking out Hate Mirage also doesn't seem like a great idea. You have the ability to copy your opponents creatures and at least smack people in the face with them. Imagine some of your opponents playing either giant legendary Eldrazi or powerful ETB creatures. The best part though is that, if non-legendary, you can populate those creatures you were only gonna have for a turn...and make the populated token stay. Populating the token does NOT copy the exile clause of Hate Mirage, or any other sortlike clauses on red copy spells. Turning powerful creatures this way into tokens is a surefire way of your opponents going "oh-ooh..".
Desolation Twin is a doubting case... yes it costs 10.. but you are in green for ramp and probably want something like a Mirari's Wake anyway.. so it might be a good card. Plus if you somehow mill or discard it, a Feldon of the Third Path or Seance (which might be a worthwhile inclusion as well) can suddenly get you 20/20 on the board divided over 2 bodies. And each time you populate, you give yourself an additional 20/20.
Your deck now contains a single boardwipe in the form of Hour of Reckoning . I'd include 1-2 more in. Yes, you are very heavy on creatures and you would like to keep your board... but if you ever find yourself against such a powerful board, maybe even multiple times in a game, and it's wipe or lose... a 1/99 chance to draw your only boardwipe won't cut it. So to stay in token theme though, I'd add your removed Phyrexian Rebirth and perhaps, thought they are tiny, Martial Coup will give you at least 5 1/1s after wiping the board. It's something.
For the rest:
Trostani's Judgement (exile and synergy with deck.. but too expensive for single target removal). Replace that with something like Swords to Plowshares or Path to Exile . Yes you ramp/let your opponent live longer... but at the same time you make sure you don't die to something you want to get rid off, NOW, for only a single mana you might have had left over somehow.
Alot more, but this comment is probably already getting a bit too long...

I agree with SP3CTR3_chelts I think you can go down to 36-37 lands pretty easily. I would also look at getting a few dual lands as well. Some fairly budget ones are Tainted Field , Scoured Barrens , Temple of Silence , Concealed Courtyard , Caves of Koilos and Shambling Vent . They will help make sure you have the colors you need and let you get away with having less land. I know buying lands is not always the most fun way to spend your money, but it's almost always worth it.
I noticed you only have 1 board wipe, and would suggest a couple more. I really like Fumigate and Phyrexian Rebirth since they either gain you life or leave you with a big creature token. Also, Swords to Plowshares is only a couple bucks and the best creature removal you can get for commander.

i love marath he was my commander forever for my beast tribal deck but then i decided to go with Samut, Voice of Dissent because it functions a little better for me. i see you have Where Ancients Tread why not Warstorm Surge instead or both but if you only want to run one i would go with warstorm it does not limit you on size. instead of planar cleansing how about Phyrexian Rebirth it's a good wipe and a little cheaper also there is Wrath of God which is great Decimate is good also and Nevinyrral's Disk . A good tutor would be Chord of Calling or Green Sun's Zenith i think chord is a little better though. i see you have primal vigor but what about Parallel Lives and Doubling Season and Anointed Procession are super good but doubling season is a little costly. just some thoughts like the deck here is mine even though i don't run marath anymore Beastiality (beast tribal)

More nonbasic lands added.

The cuts I suggested to Stone:
Explosive Vegetation (you could still run this, Route's just better)
And my suggested additions:
Skullclamp (my very favorite)
Just suggestions as always. The curve is waaayyy too shallow to be consistent.

As for enabling your frostwaker there is Fyndhorn Brownie , Magewright's Stone , Niblis of the Breath , Puppeteer , and Puppet Strings . some of those are bound to be inexpensive, and adding in a handful of boardwipes and enablers for that strategy would lend itself to doing that strategy more often.

edengstrom1 Thanks for the comment, ive made some changes with cards I already had! I did add in some more flavorful cards, but i did throw in some wraths I had already. Kokusho, the Evening Star looks like a perfect win con! Going to save up for that card. I'll also be keeping my eye on Hell's Caretaker and Phyrexian Rebirth .

I have a similar Teysa deck that I have been pretty successful with. One thing that I notice is that you have no Wrath of God cards. This can usually buy you some time if you are becoming a target and will trigger any death triggers you have.
One of my favorite cards in these kind of decks is Kokusho, the Evening Star . This card can be a beating in the air and if it dies while Teysa is out will drain all of your opponents for 10 life, while you are usually gaining around 30 life! It's a little above your budget, but something to think about.
Hope that helps! Good luck!!
