Arbiter of the Ideal
Creature — Sphinx
Flying Inspired — Whenever Arbiter of the Ideal becomes untapped, reveal the top card of your library. If it's an artifact, creature or land card you may put it onto the battlefield with a manifestation counter on it. That permanent is an enchantment in addition to its other types.

Arbiter of the Ideal Discussion
3 days ago
So, here's the thing. I play an enchantment theme deck on EDH and I use cards like Enchanted Evening and Arbiter of the Ideal. The (-3) of Calix, Destiny's Hand let me exile a creature or enchantment, so here is my question.
If I use his (-3) and target a creature my opponent controls and choose my land that has become a enchantment, but later that game the player destroyed my Enchanted Evening. Doing it so, my permanents will not be enchantments anymore, so what happens with the target that I exiled ? It will go back to the field?

- Arbiter of the Ideal - free stuff in Phenax.
- Daring Thief gives you a Switcheroo every turn.
- Pain Seer and Siren of the Silent Song are similar.
- King Macar, the Gold-Cursed lets you exile every turn.

I like that you removed the red from this and went with Aminatou, the Fateshifter .
Not sure how competitive you want to make this but here are some cards to think about:
Also you might want to look into the possibility of snow lands and Scrying Sheets

Braid of Fire would probably be good ramp. I fail to see Arbiter of the Ideal as being good. Just run Commander's Sphere instead of trying to use his wonky ability. Lower CMC, more consistent ability to use, especially in a three-color deck. I'm quite surprised you're not running it already.

I love Arbiter of the Ideal - I didn't catch that it was a token effect, even if it has no other purpose. very nice call!
Serrated Biskelion might be worth running - shrinks creatures, would kill itself but with your commander... It's a nice alternitive to Serrated Arrows, the staple for prolifferate decks for re-appliably -1/-1 counters
perhaps Coalition Relic over myr? less fragile, plus can generate a charge counter, interact with other charge artifact stuff.
Eye of Doom? it fits the rediculous theme you have, and prevents opponents from realisitcally destroying your stuff in multiplayer.

You can go aggro control. Most of the creatures do hurt (5 power) with effective etb effect/s. Flickering them reuses their etb and give pseudo vigilance.
I will raise a disclaimer that esper tends to run "good stuff" because, well, there are good spells that have little to no alternates.
From the creature list: consider keeping
--removal Angel of Despair
--draw Sphinx of Uthuun
Sepulchral Primordial -> another good one, getting creatures in opponents' gy
Vela the Night-Clad -> could be a win con, when you flicker enough
Sun Titan -> not sure if you have many 3cmc permanents, but usually great to have
maybeboard Boreas Charger
hope this helps.
