Where are my girls Sublime Archangel and the angels from the Avacyn block?

Looks solid, I like that it is budget. Couple of cards I think might fit, assuming your doing a lot of swinging with your commander Voltron style. Cathedral of War and Sublime Archangel

Sublime Archangel seems like a no-brainer in this deck.

Commander_JAR: Most cEDH decks that aren't based around beats (i.e. stuff like Najeela) are pretty creature light. Or the creatures you're playing against are typically mana dorks that people don't want to just chump block with. So Tymna is able to generate card advantage off of Tana (who can also just roll over 1/1 chump blockers). In addition, Tymna's lifelink is nothing to scoff at.

The problem with Ravos is that he costs 5 mana (you should be doing something strong with 5 mana) and then he takes an entire turn to do anything. In addition to that, cEDH removal is typically cards that either bounce to hand or straight up exile, so he doesn't generate any value there.

In more casual or more creature heavy settings you do have to work harder to get card advantgae off Tymna. But one of the things that Tana stax brings to the table is that she helps clear the board of creatures to let you connect unhindered.

If you didn't want to go down the stax route, you could always look at adding cards like Spirit Mantle to the deck, which lets Tana connect more consistently which then in turn helps you draw cards. Also (and it is a casual deck but) Sublime Archangel can be a bit of an MVP with Tana, especially if you have a few saprolings/dorks down already.

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.

Caerwyn on Custom Esper Commander advice?

I think this card has a number of significant problems.

To start, this turns every card with keyword soup (i.e. lots of keywords) into a juggernaut. Many keyword soup cards, particularly in Esper, have access to evasion, meaning your large, powerful creatures are likely to be difficult to block (recall that Esper has access to pretty much every evasion ability--flying, fear, intimidate, horsemenship, sulk, shadow, menace, landwalk, protection).

Likewise, it turns cards that grant keywords into keyword granting abilities with anthem effects slapped on. Heaven forbid someone resolves an Akroma's Memorial or similar multi-keyword card.

Next, this creature is a 5/6 for 4 mana that cannot be removed easily du to hexproof. That alone would be powerful, without its ability to boost itself higher.

A lot of keywords are not redundant, and this would see each instance of various keywords. Take Sublime Archangel, for example. Let's say you have 6 total creatures and this commander. Archangel gives each of them Exalted. This Commander now has 7 instances of exalted. It attacks alone, it gets +14/+14 from the exalted, and another +7+7 from having 7 keyword abilities on it. Instant commander kill.

Finally, you would be conferring a number of abilities to this creature that do nothing other than boost its power. Ninjitsu, mutate, flash, etc.

Unfortunately, I do not think there is a great way to fix this. Its ability is just too powerful to cost effectively--there is a reason effects like this tend to be limited in nature, specifically stating what keywords they can confer (see Rayami, First of the Fallen).
