Big Game Hunter is an obscure option as well if you go the madness route. I'm using one on my sideboard right now because he's good against Gurmag Angler decks and good with Liliana of the Veil.

There's a bit of a sub theme with self discard powered by Faithless Looting and Lingering Souls. In addition to throwing away either Lingering Souls or Faithless Looting itself to the loot in order to garner half a card, both the cards can also be thrown away to Liliana of the Veil for half a card, and the Asylum Visitor as well can be thrown away and used in such a fashion due to madness, and throwing away all these cards also helps get the madness online. I was trying Dark Confidant in his place but that was bad with Emrakul, the Aeons Torn and I tried Phyrexian Arena but it was just too slow/bad. That's also why there's a Big Game Hunter on the sideboard.

There's lots of little interactions like that I didn't fully explain in the description. Liliana of the Veil is also useful because I can throw away extra copies of Madcap Experiment and Platinum Emperion from the hand, or I can discard an Emrakul, the Aeons Torn to shuffle the Emperion back in for another Madcap. It sounds like a corner case but it does come up every now and then. That all being said though, more bolts and paths may just be the answer here, keeping it simple.

Hi. Looks like I posted after you on Commander Deck Help. The thought police will get me if I don't post card recommendations on your deck.

...that would be your endgame. For the early and midgame:

So, your gameplan would be to play Aminatou on T3, play creatures that kill things/draw cards when they enter, blink them with Aminatou repeatedly to kill opponent's things, draw into counterspells, and generally destroy their will to live. Once you have a comfortable lock, +1 Aminatou and put an eldrazi titan on top, polymorph a draw creature into it.

Im going to make these suggestions under the assumption that price is not an issue.

I would think you would want to use Endless Ranks of the Dead and cards with madness, such as Big Game Hunter with Varina.

With your bounce theme you may want to consider some ETB effects like:
Rune-Scarred Demon or Torgaar, Famine Incarnate or Gray Merchant of Asphodel.
Maybe one or two graveyard hate cards, such as Bojuka Bog or Agent of Erebos.
Or possibly other good ETB's such as Big Game Hunter or just to be funny Ichor Rats

What's your philosophy here? What do you want your deck to do?

Bound in Silence fits better than Pacifism since you can tutor for it. Same thing with Big Game Hunter over one of your kill spells. Pious Warrior and Shield Dancer make pretty good surprise blockers too.

Junktroller, Mistveil Plains, and Reito Lantern add a little redundancy to Lin Sivvi, Defiant Hero, Mercenary Informer, and Rebel Informer.

You've also got pieces to a few combos but they would need a few more parts. Teysa, Orzhov Scion combos with Darkest Hour but it really needs a Blood Artist and Ashnod's Altar to work. Cho-Manno, Revolutionary combos with Pariah and Pariah's Shield. Those two also combo with Stuffy Doll.

One last Card. Conspiracy turns every creature into Rebels or Mercenaries, letting you tutor for any creature in your deck.
