hey Spell_Slam!

I originally had empyrial armor in my list but in testing I consistently ended up with 1 card left in hand so I cut it.

I don't have any experience with predatory hunger but it does sound great in a multiplayer setting so ill test it out!

I like dawn charm the two mana is what turns me away from it. in a voltron deck such as this having a 1 mana protection spell in your starting hand vs a 2 mana one makes a huge difference.

as for new horizon, tapping for two mana of one color isn't ideal when the general cost bant. I would like to play my ramp before I get my general in play to insure I have mana to protect him which most of the time will invalidate the counter.

Wickerbough Elder needs a negative counter to be removed for his ability to work.

Goblin Cratermaker, Humble Defector, Wickerbough Elder in Hapatra, Vizier of Poison and Runic Armasaur (allthough he does not get slept on anymore as much as people used to)

i don't understand why you don't have Wickerbough Elder. it's a treefolk and artifact or enchantment removal. also Lignify or Song of the Dryads, as flavor cards too.

This looks like a lot of fun!

Some creatures that I had a some success with in my old super-budget smash decks were Stampeding Elk Herd and Walker of the Grove. They might be fun here too!

For removal, I really like Wickerbough Elder and Mold Shambler; they can help thin the field and also provide a body that can swing in for damage later. I also like Mwonvuli Acid-Moss too as it ramps while also potentially taking out a myriad of really powerful lands that are really common in EDH. Though, Acid-Moss might be really hard to find and/or be much more expensive in your area :(

Explorer's Scope and Snake Umbra are can also be deceptively useful in any deck where attacking is it's main strategy.

In one of my other decks, I also had Taunting Elf, Shinen of Life's Roar, and Glaring Spotlight as budget ways to give your whole board mass-reach and close out games. They might be worth considering here as well?

This card is a little over $1 but if you ever have a little more to spend on a single card, Ulvenwald Tracker could be really nice here, especially with all your haste enablers!

Also feel free to dismiss all these recommendations! Your deck honestly looks really great and fun just as it is! :D

update 29-09-2020!

Switched

Throne of the God-Pharaoh for Nissa of Shadowed Boughs

Trying this Nissa out, it can get any of my combo creatures from hand or grave and can ramp a bit.

Wickerbough Elder for Assassin's Trophy

More efficient and cheap removal, Elder is too clunky

Swiftfoot Boots for Veil of Summer

Better overall card and protection

Cauldron of Souls for Phyrexian Reclamation

Cheaper cost for similar effect, I like the Cauldron with a sac outlet but i'm really trying to lower my curve!

What do you think of those changes!?

Beseech the Queen for Fiend Artisan

Looks like a really fun deck! If you are looking for more tool-box creatures, Scavenging Ooze, Spike Weaver, and Wickerbough Elder bring some powerful abilities that also synergize with the +1+1 theme. Forgotten Ancient is also just a straight up powerful counter generator in multiplayer :)

Yeah and Whispersilk Cloak . Hexproof/shroud is very powerful in commander, as is unlockable, so it slots into basically every Voltron and Stompy deck. Most people are probably not running Artifact removal (aside from a couple equipments and Mana rocks there isn't much worth targeting) so your only real chance to stop it is killing their commander before they equip. Wizards is getting better at printing useful modal removal at common ( Caustic Caterpillar , Return to Nature , Wickerbough Elder ) but it is all Green and running straight Artifact hate has bad returns in PDH so we'll see what the future has in store.
