Cool lands list. I know your focus is on theme/gimmick but there are a few cards worth considering just to streamline the strategy.

Crucible of Worlds , Ramunap Excavator , Splendid Reclamation , Trade Secrets , Embargo , Manabond and Treasure Hunt especially Treasure Hunt = draw your deck

TriusMalarky Trade Secrets is banned in commander but very good suggestions.

Additionally, I have a list; though it's more of a king maker deck that can win. Basically, you play bad creatures/cards that give symmetrical advantage to you and 1 target opponent. Its skill testing but it's fun in a more casual-mid power pod.

TriusMalarky on Suggestions for a very political …

With this kind of deck, you need to first ask yourself what strategy you're actually going for. Are you

  • Trying to use politics to slowly gain advantages before suddenly taking over and dominating?

  • Trying to make yourself such a valuable ally that everyone leaves you alone and then you go one-on-one after two people die?

  • Trying to make games last as long as possible?

I'd likely recommend the second. This is because it is easy for each opponent to justify letting you live. If you win too often, your playgroup will either opt to team up on you and crush you early, or they will(each on their own accord) attempt to take you out at the end of the game by playing their cards right.

For this deck to work, you really need to be able to guarantee that you can incentivise certain actions at your discretion. For instance, with Kenrith you can say "Hey, I'll let you draw a card if you attack player B" do the player with a solid board state but an empty hand. Every card should give you as much choice as possible and with powerful enough effects that you can give people treats for following your orders, and bring down hellfire if they disobey.

Here's my personal list:

I don't honestly think it's that hard to make white card draw, if it could just beat out priorities no one cares about like Happily Ever After. Here's my solution, a white version of Syphon Mind based on the card Truce : [CARD NAME], 2WW, Sorcery, "Starting with you, each player may draw a card. Draw a card for each card drawn this way." 18 words. Doesn't step on blues' toes, since it's way underpowered relative to Concentrate or Trade Secrets . It feels very white-forward, being about generosity. Finally, a Touch of Brilliance with a punisher effect and two white pips isn't going to warp Limited color identity by encouraging players to splash white for card draw, but it could be the top end of a white or Boros aggro deck packed with 2 and 3-drops. Much like Crush Contraband , the effect is mediocre enough to print at uncommon for Limited play, but it becomes one of the best budget cards in mono-white EDH once it leaves the draft table.

Yo! Thran Quarry , Reflecting Pool , Opal Palace , Holdout Settlement , and/or Unknown Shores instead of the 3c enter tapped lands? Ramos, Dragon Engine could be a nice color fix too, especially if you wanted to go for a way to boost counters.

Siren's Call and Alpha Brawl could be funny. I seem to remember a cheaper version of Insurrection, but I can't think of it right now.

The "gift" destruction cards could be neat, flavor wise: Generous Gift , Pongify , Rapid Hybridization , Curse of the Swine , Beast Within , Terastodon , and even Swan Song .

Not sure Debt to the Deathless is doing much, but I'm probably missing something.

Other group-hug cards to consider Spurnmage Advocate , Skyscribing , Vision Skeins , Trade Secrets , Crescendo of War , and the good ol' Vow enchantment cards.
