Hey hey dawg!
There are just so many ways you could go about this! I have no idea if I'm doing the right thing here but here are a few ideas
Return of the Wildspeaker --> out -- I just dont think this card is very good in general. You dont have a ton of big creatures and +3/+3 isn't that exciting. Would rather play Harmonize which is unconditional.
Austere Command --> maybeboard -- This could be wrong, but I was looking for cards to cut and felt like an expensive wrath wasn't exactly where your deck wanted to be.
Keeper of Fables --> maybeboard -- I mean I get it that you can potentially draw up to 3 cards a turn, but its just so meh.
Greater Auramancy --> Maybeboard -- I was considering this cuz I think there's potential for a strong enchantments theme. Opted for Sterling Grove instead because it also tutors but this is here just as a consideration.
Archon of Absolution --> maybeboard -- Its on theme but I don't think its taxing enough right? maybe I'm crazy and this is exactly what you want cuz you can trigger goad with your commander?? but its 4 mana as well idk I just took it out cuz its floor is very low.
Kinjalli's Sunwing --> out -- Not sure why this card was in here to begin with, I mean you aren't granting mass haste or anything and the whole idea is you're goading people so few people are gonna have blockers, plus plenty of your is evasive. I think Thalia, Heretic Cathar feels this role very well already.
Urabrask the Hidden --> maybeboard -- This card is sweet but its 5 mana.
Elspeth, Sun's Champion --> maybeboard -- Elspeth feels a little out of place.
Beast Whisperer --> maybeboard -- Not into this as a reliable form of card draw.
Soltari Champion --> out -- I get the idea, you're trying to trigger goad, but isn't this card just bad? a 3 mana unblockable with battlecry doesn't seem particularly playable.
Gruul War Chant --> out -- This card is just way too low impact for 4 mana.
Sunblast Angel --> Maybeboard -- I get the idea cuz everyone is attacking and tapped but meh.
Dryad Sophisticate --> out -- I don't think unblockable 2/1 are good enough even if they do trigger marisi. I like the idea of playing evasive hatebears or something. Maybe I'm just way off base with this deck haha
The Great Henge --> maybeboard -- this card is sweet and super pwoerful but you got a bunch of dorky 2/2s and stuff this thing is gonna routinely cost you like 7 mana and at that point wouldn't you just play Zendikar Resurgent? (I didn't put zendikar resurgent in though but if you want an effect like henge, I think I'd go with resurgent)
Druids' Repository --> main -- Idk! this seems cool and fun!! All your creatures become mana dorks cuz they'll be attacking anyway! Seems p good! Also if you make a bunch of 1/1 tokens with Tempt with Vengeance and Sylvan Offering you make a bunch of mana when they attack!
Skullclamp --> main -- I think because stuff like Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor plus having a bunch of stuff that might end up dying this'll draw you a lot of cards. Plus if you play Tempt with Vengeance and Sylvan Offering its bonkers!!
Insurrection --> main -- Its a sweet win condition!!
Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor --> main -- in my view this exactly what you want to be doing!
ok wow this comment is getting long so I'm just gonna list the rest of the cards that I think should go in/out:
War's Toll -- in
Sterling Grove -- in
Sphere of Safety - in
Sylvan Offering - in
Enlightened Tutor - in
Harmonize - in
Goblin Spymaster - in
Tahngarth, First Mate - in (this one just seems fun :D totally get it if you decide not to)
Tempt with Vengeance - in
Teferi's Protection - in
Rishkar's Expertise - out
Grand Melee - maybe, for now I decided to just play war's toll but maybe neither are good enough
Whew!! Can't wait to play against this in any shape or form! Hope at least some of these suggestions help!

Hi, maybe you can try using Banishing Light for it's versatility, also consider using Sphere of Safety x2 it can slow down your opponents and exploit the enchantments quantity. Authotiy of the Consuls can be a nice option vs fast aggro decks or manage a heavy quantity of creatures (also it's cheap and have synergy with the sphere).
In my opinion Haktos the Unscarred it's kind of weak, you can change for a Gideon (Ally of Zendikar or of the trials), planeswalkers are more difficult to deal than creatures in the format.
Your deck is spicy and looks fun to play, the best way of improving it's playing it ;)

I put together a similar sort of deck the other day. Here are a few of my differences:
- Bronzehide Lion
- Kitsune Mystic Flip is a combat trick
- Krond the Dawn-Clad
- Nomad Mythmaker and Sun Titan for recursion of auras
- Umbra Mystic if you are dealing with board wipes
- Song of the Dryads, Darksteel Mutation and Kenrith's Transformation for board control
- Gift of Immortality is nuts
- Sigil of the Empty Throne is an alternative win con

If your running enchantment sub tribal, a really fun card you could put in there is Sphere of Safety, it would synergize perfectly with your deck and would be really obnoxious, seeing as you have a lot of indestructible enchantments, making board wipes t

I would add more pillow-fort stile enchantments like Ghostly Prison, Norn's Annex, Lightmine Field, Karmic Justice, Sphere of Safety and Crawlspace. In the creatures compartment i would suggest adding Master of Cruelties. For a less competitive build (but actually fun to play) i play in my deck the "curses" like Curse of Opulence. Anointed Procession is a must in this deck since it allows you to get two assasins instead of one when you are not the monarch. It really depends on what you are aiming for but in my opinion the deck doesn't have enough pillow-fort cards to play the political game.

I don't really understand why you're running Enchanted Evening, you only have one other card that combos with it in the deck, Archon of Sun's Grace, but you didn't even mention the combo in your primer so idk if it's in your main strategy. while Enchanted Evening is good with your enchantment creatures like Eidolon of Blossoms,Setessan Champion, and Destiny Spinner, I'd recommend adding in cards like Cleansing Meditation, Serra's Sanctum (if you can afford it), or Sphere of Safety. Otherwise, I'd probably cut it for something a little more in tune with your main strategy if I were you. cool deck overall!
