Toski, Bearer of Secrets Discussion

No problem! Cost is the first important thing when building an EDH deck, it decides what cards really you can include. It is important when making the deck to think about the various interactions you will have. The go-to list of stuff you need will likely include Ramp, Removal, Protection, and Win-Con.
It looks like you have a healthy amount of ramp in terms of mana production and land drop, maybe even a little too much but that will be known thru playtesting it. You could use a little more card draw, especially with all of the creatures. Beast Whisperer , Greater Good , Toski, Bearer of Secrets are all decent options. Sylvan Library is really good but on the expensive side.
In terms of removal, Beast Within , Chaos Warp , Krosan Grip , and Nature's Claim are some of the best options. Gleeful Sabotage is also good, along with Blasphemous Act and Vandalblast to level the board if you are behind.
For your win-con, its pretty obvious that you are looking to bash face with creatures. Using additional combats and protection like Heroic Intervention will help to keep everything in play to swing to win.
As a general recommendation, I think you should cut down on the creatures a bit and add more removal and interaction. One of the most powerful things in EDH is just the ability to interact, especially at instant speed.

The beauty of Thantis is the perplexing open-endedness of the commander. I've had the most success & fun making it a mix of: monarch/courts, token spawning big-boys (on upkeep is my fav.), polymorph spells to trade tokens for bigs, card draw for little guys, & lifelink.

I'm really excited to build around Beledros Witherbloom . There are so many great ways to build him: Mana Doublers, Tokens, Aristocrats, Lifegain, Lands Matter... the list goes on and on! He looks best in the 99 of something like Ikra Shidiqi + Prava of the Steel Legion or The Ur-Dragon , tho.
Galazeth Prismari looks like fixed Urza , which is both a good thing if you're playing more casual and don't like getting ganged up on, and a bad thing because who's gonna play a worse Urza in cEDH when their's just a better Urza: Urza ?
The other three don't really interest me that much, but Tanazir could lead a spicy simic aggro deck built around unblockable dudes and effects like Wild Beastmaster and Toski, Bearer of Secrets ... I take it back, I'm definitely going to build this. All in all, I think Strixhaven is a slam dunk for commander, and the dragons are no exception.

After trying over and over again, I've finally found a version of Thantis, the Warweaver I like:
Commander / EDH
SCORE: 3 | 134 VIEWS | IN 2 FOLDERS
I know you'd usually include Revenge of Ravens style effects, but I decided against them on purpose, as I wanted to focus on creature combat, anthem effects, Fog s, lifegain and especially vigilance. You could say I'm kind of a Timmy ;) I'm not totally opposed to adding them in if I learn that the deck simply doesn't work without them, but I'd prefer holding the current course.
The result is the linked list. After adding Toski, Bearer of Secrets because of the great synergy between its indestructibility and the deck's ability of granting vigilance, I'll also add in Sapling of Colfenor soon.
As you'd imagine, thanks to Covid, I've had no chance to test the deck yet in an actual game.
My questions to the community:
With the given direction, do you have ideas I could take my 8-legged friend in? How do you like the general idea? Do you think the direction I took it in is stupid? Please let me know.

Toski, Bearer of Secrets would be fun with Druid's Call. Opponent blocks, you get more squirrels. Opponent doesn't block, you draw a card.

This is a 81 card deck without an actual reason to play that many cards. Are you interested in advice for improvement?
Seeing that Glistener Elf and Scent of Ivy are your only 4-offs, I guess this is your primary gameplan? Seems fun. But there is a problem with decks that play attackers both with and without infect: Either of the "damage" will be useless at some point. When you can't hit for 10 poison with Glistener, his damage won't contribute to the damage of your other creatures, and if you manage to get opponents to high poison but run out of Infect creatures, you'll basically have to start all over again, but this time from 20 life instead of the virtual 10 life infect puts them on.
I would suggest to either go full on infect or to drop Glistener together with 17 other cards while adding lots of draw to your remaining 60 cards.
Cards you might want to consider are Toski, Bearer of Secrets , Keeper of Fables , Beast Whisperer and other similar cards to draw you enough cards to finish with Scent of Ivy in times when you don't find Glistener Elf.
Btw, I've never seen Scent of Ivy . Such an awesome card.
