Generally the only things that universally violate the social contract are large quantities of mass land destruction and playing a cEDH deck in a non-cEDH pod. People will hate you for that. Most people aren't fan of "stax" effects either, such as Stasis and Winter Orb , since locking your lands down has a similar affect to MLD, albeit in the short term. People also generally hate mass discard strategies like Tinybones, Trinket Thief decks, because they want to at least have cards in their hands to play. People generally don't mind if you wipe their board, destroy their stuff, or play a strategic card that interferes with their gameplan (ex. playing Solemnity against a counters deck or Containment Priest against a Meren deck. That's just good play. People aren't also generally opposed to taxes or pillowfort strategies either- that's just a playstyle. Basically, if you reset an already long game by blowing up lands or keep people from doing anything at all on their turns as the main strategy of your deck, many players won't like it and will kill you early. People want to be able to play the game on their turns, and if they can't do much at all they'll be upset. If you just slow them down a little bit by taxing their attacks or shutting down particularly degenerate strategies, that's just fair play. As for things that depend on your table, that would be the gray category where infinite combos and Cyclonic Rift go.
In general, I think hatebears is fine in general if it doesn't devolve into stax, and the main things to avoid are mass land destruction and mass discard as major strategies for your deck.

Nice list! Got some inspiration from it for my own Karador deck. I dont think you need Gift of Immortality , Kaya's Ghostform and Swiftfoot Boots . Sure, your commander are central for your strategy, but the cost reduction does include commander tax, so it will always cost you 3 mana if you fill you yard efficiently. See my list for inspiration, Hermit Druid is a goddamn beast in a Karador list! Reduce your basic land count and include that guy for some serious self mill. I use 6 basics because i don't want it to be auto win, but feel free to go down to 1-2 basics to really abuse the hermit :). Eldritch Evolution targeting Karador (you can always recast him for 3) plays any creature with cmc 10 or lower from your deck. Yosei, the Morning Star with a sac outlet lets you Stasis your opponent while tapping down all their stuff. Nethroi, Apex of Death can mutate from your graveyard, so as long as you mill that guy you have a way to play any amount of creatures with total power 10 from your graveyard any time you have Karador out :). Stitcher's Supplier is a great self mill card especially with a sac outlet.

I was thinking about Earthcraft , and budget isn't really an issue. It's more of I can't bring myself to spend that much on one card. Though my Tropical Island is a proxy(though i can replace that any time as needed).

Interesting take on Bird Wizard! Not sure what your budget is, but Earthcraft would fit right in with your theme, leveraging advantage from token producers and provide an infinite combo with Squirrel Nest . Also Intruder Alarm works really well, as you can flash in your commander consistently and get more value from your tapping creatures and such!
Land suggestion would be something like High Market or if the group is ok with proxies Diamond Valley . Being able to block, then sac your commander and play it again at instant speed over and over is a consistent utility to help grind to the end game when you can overwhelm with your token producers.
A fun option for the deck could also be Mirrormade , doubling down on your powerhouse enchantments and artifacts.
If you're wanting a more spikey sort of game, something like Armageddon or Stasis fits in. You can really take advantage of your commander's untap ability, as you can continue to pay for the mana cost by attacking with your commander. Timed with a token producer or your mana rocks, you can grind out the game, swinging your commander and slowly building up tokens.
