Prime Speaker Jace
Legendary Planeswalker - Jace
+1: Look at the top 3 cards of your library. Reveal any number of creature cards and put them into your hand. Put the rest on the top or bottom of your library.
-2: You may cast an instant or sorcery card from your hand if its mana cost is less than or equal to the number of +1/+1 counters among creatures you control.
: Jace becomes a 3/5 Human Wizard Mutant creature with Hexproof, Reach, and "This creature gets +1/+1 for each loyalty counter on it". (Jace is no longer a planeswalker, but his loyalty abilities can still be used.)
Starting loyalty: 2
Create a permanent card with a repeatable ability that says "Search outside the game in exile for a card named Air Elemental and create a token copy of it". Except Air Elemental can be any common or uncommon artifact, creature, land, etc. that you choose.

Remember that ramp is op in commander. It is especially good with your deck because your commander ensures you never waste mana. Play cards like Kodama's Reach

1: There are many weaker card choices. Not having access (or getting over time) is obviously apart of the collection-building aspect of the game; but your decks should avoid the weak cards that are not on theme. Focus on including cards that actively help or are benefited by your theme of heavy ramp with a secondary set of heavy draw. Cards such as Fblthp, Gurmag Drowner, Silumgar Sorcerer, and jace, are primary examples.
2: Finding cards that fit both themes: draw and ramp, is relatively easy and will increase the adaptability and efficiency of the deck. Commander's Sphere is the obvious example currently in the deck. Potential additions (that you should be able to more easily acquire) include Edge of Autumn, Explore, Krosan Tusker, and Seer's Sundial. Harder to get pieces would be Kiora, the Crashing Wave, Aesi, Tyrant of Gyre Strait.
4: Having lots of mana is only useful it's spent casting scary game-winning threats. Threats you may not be aware of that might be fun for you to playtest: Soramaro, First to Dream, Prime Speaker Zegana, and Clockwork Dragon. The first and last cards specifically benefit from the amount of colorless mana you will generate with your general.

Magus of the Will is budget Yawgmoth's Will on a body that can be reanimated by Muldrotha. It lets you play instants and sorceries in your graveyard. Usually these will be big reanimation spells. Very effective with Splendid Reclamation and Early Harvest. You need to reanimate all lands in the graveyard and untap most of them in this way, but once you do you have access to a lot of mana and the ability to play the rest of the good stuff in the graveyard such as Rise of the Dark Realms. This leads to the big finisher:
Reanimate all creatures and bring back Prime Speaker Zegana, Sewer Nemesis, and Laboratory Maniac --> Draw cards equal to the number of cards in your graveyard. If that number is bigger than your library, you win. Add Disciple of Bolas to double the card draw.

Are you committed to the colors/partners? I feel like the new Kodama of the East Tree would be a very good partner choice. You lose black, but Kodama is busted and very good in multiples!
And here are some legendaries that don't have ETBs, but are good in multiples:
Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy
Edric, Spymaster of Trest
Kira, Great Glass-Spinner (SHEESH)
Rayne, Academy Chancellor
Reki, the History of Kamigawa
Imoti, Celebrant of Bounty
Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger
Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur
And final note: If you could find a way to make Linessa, Zephyr Mage work in commander, it'd automatically be a fantastic deck.

Sorry for the absence. I’ve been very busy lately.
AR25V, thanks for the suggestion. I never look at those two together. I’ll keep that in mind. I have to see if it outweighs my distaste for giving my opponents value as well.
unwucht, I still like Prime Speaker Zegana a lot. She was a devastating drop in my old Omnath, Locus of the Roil deck. With that being said, I’d still very much so like to add her, I just need to find a different cut. Which is now getting harder since I want to make room for Sakashima of a Thousand Faces, but it most likely will swap with Spark Double. As for 6CMC cards, I do tend to cast them often enough in a single match, most specifically Ancient Greenwarden.
