Whispersilk Cloak and Aether Tunnel would make it a bit more aggro. In my experience, you only have a couple of turns in some EDH games before someone drops an infinite combo. You may want to look into Absorb and Norn's Annex. As for cards I would not run, Deputy of Detention kind of flops in EDH except against tokens, and you could run River's Rebuke to deal with those. Tocatli Honor Guard makes an interesting budget canceler. Drannith Magistrate is a bit better though, for a higher budget.

Nevinyrral_Mayor_of_Urborg Teferi's Veil and Vanishing are extremely underappreciated cards you can throw on commanders or valuable creatures and keep them alive; Aether Tunnel and Aqueous Form are cheap and reliable ways to ensure combat damage while things like Distortion Strike Artful Dodge and Slip Through Space all allow someone to sneak in for a huge hit of damage and provides a small boost to a couple of your creatures by being in the yard. And Trailblazer's Boots pretty much read unblockable in most EDH games.

It should also be pointed out that enchanting a creature (or other game object) isn't an inherent property of all enchantments, but rather a specific ability you'll find printed on (or errata'd for older cards) Auras, and on creatures via the Bestow ability.
Raid Bombardment, for example, is an enchantment, but you can't use it to enchant a creature because it doesn't have the "enchant creature" ability.
Curse of Verbosity is an aura, but you can't use it to enchant a creature because the relevant ability is "enchant player," not "enchant creature." Abundant Growth is an aura, but says "enchant land," not "enchant creature."
Meanwhile Aether Tunnel does have "enchant creature," and thus can be enchanted to a creature. Same with the Bestow ability on Baleful Eidolon (note that Bestow says "it's an Aura with enchant creature").

Funkydiscogod I totally get your point, Modern decks is much faster and resilient than this, and Pioneer should probably suit this deck better, I guess. Ghostform and Aether Tunnel is the best substitutes I can find in exchange for Artful Dodge and Distortion Strike , and the "power drop" on Vapor Snag , Echoing Truth , Overrun and Hunted Troll (as you say) by their sub is uncertain at this point.
I have barely played any pioneer so I actually don't know how a deck with the lesser substitutes would fair in the format. What do you think? :) I really appreciate the input btw, must think this over, and I like the opportunity to mix things up! :D
