This is cool, not a commander I've played, +1. I always thought her ability was kind of weird, but in this environment, it works! Also lol communism.

I thought Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor could be interesting? Same kinda Akroan Horse thing but different. Also Coveted Jewel and Assault Suit are fun "gifts" to give. Bazaar Trader is a must.

one more quick question (sorry) how effective is Bazaar Trader ? The idea of using opponent A's creatures as a political bargaining chip intrigues me, but wouldn't you be better off just killing it or retaining control of it nearly every time?

Smothering Tithe to help with ramp? Also, Bazaar Trader lets you hang onto creatures you steal.

Thanks for the help! I've never made a deck quite like this before and I really don't have a good idea of what I'm doing. If you're wondering about Harmless Offering and Bazaar Trader they're in there because if an opponent loses the game while in control of Xantcha, Sleeper Agent the control replacement effect ends and she comes under my control which could be very bad.

"7/13/2018 In a multiplayer game, if a player leaves the game, all cards that player owns leave as well. If the player under whose control Xantcha entered the battlefield leaves the game, the effect changing control of Xantcha ends. Because Xantcha’s replacement effect creates a continuous effect causing another player to control it, Xantcha isn’t exiled."

I_TappedWrong, thanks for the thoughtful suggestions! I feel like Bazaar Trader would be better replaced by a cheap sac-outlet, since I'd need to have him out for a turn before using him, and can only use him once a turn, and would still have to find a way to steal the creature from my opponent initially before using him, which is what the sac-outlets in the deck are for. Willbreaker has always been a maybe for me. It seems super fragile, and would be a huge target. Most of the instants/sorceries in the deck steal stuff anyway, so his ability might be redundant, but there are definitely times when the ability would be very useful. I may test a few games with Willbreaker in the deck to see how it performs. Jalira, Master Polymorphist is a cool card, but paying three mana and tapping her to get the next creature from my deck onto the field doesn't really fit the theme that I'm going for. I like the fact that she's a sac-outlet, but I'm not crazy about the cost or the tapping.

My beef with Phyrexian Tower is that it either provides just one or two mana at the cost of sacrificing a creature and tapping it. I like my sac outlets to be reusable during the turn, in case I steal more than one creature. I might try to sub it in for something like Conjurer's Closet , since that card is kinda in the same boat as a once-a-turn deal, but I'm not entirely sold on its inclusion just yet.

Good idea to check out other decks designed to steal stuff. I took a great deal of inspiration from other steal-y decks and came to the current decklist. I'll be sure to scope out some other decks with similar properties to see if there are other places where I van trim the fat.

Thanks so much for the thoughtful suggestions!

Bazaar Trader you steal their creature tap this little guy and you keep it forever. Willbreaker and Jalira, Master Polymorphist . id also look at some Yasova Dragonclaw decks they might have some good blue/red cards you could possible use sense she is the threaten effect queen.
