Acquire Board break down:

Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage is considered for replacement commander

Aethersquall Ancient, Decoction Module, and Era of Innovation, are largely for Gonti's Aether Heart. Era of Innovation is the weakest and would not be included on its own.

Foundry Inspector and Jhoira's Familiar are cost reducers, They may just be excess

Arcane Encyclopedia, Howling Golem, Padeem, Consul of Innovation, Paradoxical Outcome, Reverse Engineer, Sage of Lat-Nam, Sai, Master Thopterist and Game Plan are added draw power

Metalwork Colossus, Cogwork Assembler, Gonti's Aether Heart, Mechanized Production, Timestream Navigator, Magistrate's Scepter, Karn's Temporal Sundering, Nexus of Fate are to make winning more consistant

Whir of Invention, Thran Temporal Gateway, Planar Bridge, Jalira, Master Polymorphist, Inventors' Fair are for getting things out in fun ways

Efficient Construction, Baird, Steward of Argive keep from being killed by flyers and hordes

Inspiring Statuary is fun but does not do enough to justify the slot

I see Propaganda as your featured card but not in the list itself. Not sure if you meant to add it or not.

Here are some more pillow forty cards that I know of: Windborn Muse, Orzhov Advokist, Norn's Annex, Baird, Steward of Argive, and of course Ghostly Prison.

I've cobbled together a list, you can find it here. I've already run into what you're talking about. I've been tweaking it here and there, but a cohesive win con is a bit tricky. A couple cards you might consider for yours: Baird, Steward of Argive and Norn's Annex. Both are obviously flashable, and provide a nice tax for protecting you and the superfriends. The fun part about Norn's Annex is if your opponents aren't playing white, then they have to pay life to attack you. :)

I'm a little wary about running less wrath than I am used to, but I'll see how it goes. I just need to find a good cohort of creatures for the beating. I'm hoping to take advantage of Helm of the Host for various duplication shenanigans, and looking into how that might synergy with Myr Battlesphere

I'm constantly torn between Fumigate and Dusk because of the mana costs, maybe its worth replacing one or both Dusk with it, I'll have to see. Otherwise, I'm honestly not a fan of Treasure Map  Flip here, because this deck is good with stalling the game by just answering all the opponent's creatures (except for tokens, which is a reason why I'm kind of in favor of Fumigate) and it's just eating up some of the mana I need every once in a while. The problems I have found with this deck were only against token-based strategies (which is why I'm running Baird, Steward of Argive in the sideboard) as Gideon's Intervention can't stop tokens (but can stop all creature and non-creature spells.)

Dominaria has added a few solid additions with Tragic Poet to grab back things that were either discarded or cycled. Great 1 drop for this deck. Seal Away is pretty obvious and a bargain at 2 mana. Baird, Steward of Argive is nice against wider strategies like Saprolings, and I'd probably bring it in along with the Fumigate and Bontu's Last Reckoning. Damping Sphere is better in Modern but still good against spell slinging decks and cheap creature beats that like to drop 2-3 things a turn and stay on curve by ruining their curve. Divest is a nice little Duress variant that can hit creatures or artifacts. I'm a fan.

The combo still works very nicely, and these little upgrades have only made it tighter. There is pretty much always an answer to whatever your opponent may try to keep on the board, and that Poet is just amazing post board because it undoes the removal your opponent most likely brought in to deal with all of your enchantments.

I'm not shore if your interested in doing a SB for this but have you considered Cataclysmic Gearhulk ? It's dirt cheap and is a effective boardwipe and is hard to remove (thinking for SB teck against go wide midrage, enchantments, and artifact combo decks, ) Baird, Steward of Argive could also be an effective ghostly prison effect
