Perhaps Silent Arbiter could be up for consideration?

Removals • Bioessence Hydra - Expensive for the cost and really only can pop if you’re out with a ton of planeswalkers. - Doesn’t truly allow to combo off or put yourself further in a win position • Vryn Wingmare - Just ok. Could levy into stronger creatures. • Martial Coup - An ok board wipe but there’s better ones out there. • Altar of Dementia - Not valid as sacrifice doesn't proc with totem armor • Really Good spread of Lands. Quick pace and some very solid duals that keep up your pace • Dovin Baan - Does not help advance your enchantment Mill objective. • Dovin, Hand of Control - Not great in commander as you have to activate it on your turn • Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner - You’re not hitting with large creatures. Mill is your objective with a subtheme of enchanted/totem creatures • Finest Hour - You’re milling, not attacking. You already should be having fliers anyway.

Suggestions: • Common theme that the deck needs to be built from a behind position. You have an easy commander to keep some BRUTAL pieces alive and well.

• Many of your creatures do not utilize tapping effects (which should be your goal with the commander).

• Will need some life gain enchantments to stay in the game

• No easily combo pieces or blink pieces - Dramatic Reversal - Mindcrank

• Creatures that tap for mana and have totem armor. Easy ramp - Karametra's Acolyte

• Creatures to help Mill or slow down the game - Fleet Swallower - Dreamborn Muse - Silent Arbiter

• More instant or sorcery spells that actually can mill an opponent - Maddening Cacophony

• Creatures that can grow unhindered with totem armor - Scute Mob - Sun Titan - Bishop of Rebirth - Danitha Capashen, Paragon

• Completely missing ramp/ability to draw specific lands - Aesi, Tyrant of Gyre Can always enchant him for free unlimited lands - Cultivate

• Exile graveyard Pieces or different lands - Halimar Depths - Bojuka Bog - Myriad Landscape

• Better enchantments that are not expensive - Mirrormade - Memory Erosion - Patient Rebuilding

• Absolutely need some mana rocks

If you can't get off the ground as fast as you want you need to have a way to slow the game down or to block damage while you build up. You've seen me do this in half my decks. Bubble Matrix or Vigor means anybody can block. Spidersilk Armor . Silent Arbiter would be good, you build up guys and tap, who cares if you attack?

Oops. Good looks yugimuto95. I’ll def add some. This is the first deck I ever built and it shows. I like your deck a lot, and I’m definitely going to add some of the hexproof and indestructible stuff you have as I sorely need it. Does Silent Arbiter come in handy? I have one, but I wasn’t sure if it would be decent.

Silent Arbiter is good to force people to only attack with Xantcha!

If you want to curtail some combat, Crawlspace and Silent Arbiter might be up your alley.

As far as menace creatures go, I like Dreamstealer or Kheru Mind-Eater to deny the opponent of additional creatures. Red is also well known for menace since you gain access to Labyrinth Raptor, Sonorous Howlbonder, and the odd Sin Prodder. It also has a bomb in Master of Cruelties that benefits from a lack of blockers. Silent Arbiter can accomplish a similar goal to your auras when attacking if you don't mind embracing an exalted style, possibly via Sublime Archangel.

Another option could be to embrace the large number of auras with synergetic cards like Eidolon of Countless Battles, Kor Spiritdancer, and Sage's Reverie. Some other Arrest options I like are Pillory of the Sleepless, Prison Term, or the cheap Demotion.
