so, just wanna be sure this works how i think:
I have my commander, Chorus of the conclaveout and am being attacked and have a savannah and a qasali ambusher in hand, i can pay any amount of mana to have it get a buttload of counters and not pay the other 3 in its mana cost right? the additinal x mana is not free. same with aluren and chorus? the x as an aditional cost is reduced by cost reducers, i know that.

That's correct. The "Without paying it's mana cost" just means you ignore the cost in the top-right of the card. Additional costs still get paid (such as if it has kicker, or something else is letting you pay an additional cost such as Chorus of the Conclave) normally.

instant speed giant monster cat with reach is still fun :mrgreen:

are there other ways im not thinking of to make the additional costs less or free? basically just cost reducers like emerald medallion right?

I think that's about it. Medallions, Helm of Awakening, Cloud Key, Planar Gate etc are the kinds of cards that would help you with getting more "ooomph" out of your Chorus.

I don't think there's anything that specifically helps reduce additional costs, as they can be so varied (mana, sacc'ing creatures, paying life, discarding cards, etc.)

typically in green you just get more for your money out of mana doublers like the green card wannabe Doubling Cube or mirari's wake, etc.

Conduit of Ruin is pretty good (especially if you've got creatures with flash)
Oketra's Monument and Rhonas's Monument are ok
So is Goreclaw.

...Centaur Omenreader + something you can tap for value with (like Cryptolith Rite, or Glare of Subdual)?
