i used to play Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest in my Ghave, Guru of Spores deck, but i often found it to be a dead draw. mostly it is too high cmc to be worth it imo, and Good-Fortune Unicorn accomplishes the same purpose but for 3 cmc and on our own terms! would recommend recommend removing him for Dockside Extortionist :)
Burnished Hart is inefficient turn 4 ramp. either put a 2 cmc ramp option or try fittimg Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer here. i like the classic Prismatic Lens and Wayfarer's Bauble for my 5-color deck :)
finally i would remove Thraben Inspector. quite an underwhelming card in commander game.
i love this deck idea! i have always wanted to try a mass alt-wincon theme deck, and i like the flavor of this one much!

Hey Haydenc553. The first thing I would so is sub in a better removal piece like Banishing Light or Oblivion Ring for Smite. I was trying to stay on flavor but Smite's just not that good a card. If you're going to play Thalia's Lieutenant, you want to maximize the number of humans, so sub Thraben Inspector for Cenn's Tactician and Preeminent Captain for Aerial Responder (at least not decreasing humans there). You can put in three Thalia's for a Ballyrush Banneret and two Veteran Armorsmith. That would be initial thought at least - you might need to test it out a bit.

In my opinion this deck has too many Artifacts or Enchantments for the amount of Creature it is running. Oftentimes in testing I had nothing to attach to Equipment that was on the field. It just sat there, doing nothing.
In a deck Always Watching is a must.
Has this deck played successfully in any tournaments? If so, I must be missing something.

Finally, Always Watching might be a good addition.

I really like this combo of Biomancer's Familiar plus Eldrazi Displacer but I have a couple of suggestions that might make the deck run a little smoother. First of a big issue with this color combination is that it is actually a 4 color deck without fetches that might be a tad tricky. And Yavimaya Coast gives us 3 of them so they are an instant 4 of. And to be honest that is really the only good land in the format for us.
For the creatures. I feel like there are a lot of powerful ones in there but there isn't enough synergy to justify the familiar or displacer. Let's fix that! A card I love for this deck is Incubation Druid the reason why is that it works incredibly well with both Biomancer's Familiar and Eldrazi Displacer . Like insanely well. First its adapt cost gets reduced by familiar second it can produce colorless mana if you have colorless lands for displacer to keep displacing. And if we add a third card into the loop Bounding Krasis we can go infinite. The nice thing about krasis is it does an ok impression of Reflector Mage when we need it to.
Also I still think we aren't getting enough value out of Biomancer's Familiar yet so the last card that should round out our synergy there is Duskwatch Recruiter Flip. Insanely good on its own and allows us to dig through our entire deck if we go infinite.
At this point I would seriously consider going on a Collected Company plan over the Shalai, Voice of Plenty , Reality Smasher and Tamiyo, Collector of Tales because well we are trying to out value our opponent not run them over. The Matter Reshaper s are another good card on their own but not really doing too much for the synergy you are trying to go for.
For rounding out the rest of the deck I would consider some of the following cards Thraben Inspector , Charming Prince , Overwhelmed Apprentice , Renegade Rallier and last but not least Fblthp, the Lost .
Hope this was helpful!

Bottle Gnomes may only gain you life but they at least can sac themselves at no cost and count as historic for the purposes of triggering your commander's ability.
Felidar Cub gives a little more removal to recur.
Condemn is a bit conditional but at least an option for some instant speed removal that can deal with indestructible creatures.
Checked Card Kingdom and they have a fair number of printings of Sun Titan for under $3, the Commander 2019 version is listed at $1.99. Having a couple of things that are a little beefier wouldn't be a bad idea and it fits the theme of the deck.
I second adding a anthem or two to be able to punch through if/when needed.
