Some budget cards you can utilize for evasion or survival are removal or bounce effects, aside from that countering key pieces are essential. Here might be some cards you can utilize that are in budget options.
Hope that helps!

Sorry About the Delay.
So far I have a few suggestions:
Karmic Guide : Can be some helpful recursion
Gilded Drake : This could be fun, especially if you start bouncing him back to your hand! He is expensive though, so that could be a problem.
Wall of Denial : A solid wall if you ever need it
Akroma, Angel of Wrath : Just a big beater
Angelic Arbiter : A good way to control the board
Archon of Justice : Some good removal
Consecrated Sphinx : A good card, will draw some hate though (but better they use removal on him and not Isperia).
Linvala, Keeper of Silence : Some good control if you run into decks with a lot of this.
Sphinx of Magosi : Not the best card, but I personally like it. It's fun to play, and it can give you cards while it gets bigger.
Tidespout Tyrant : An absolute must in this deck
Yosei, the Morning Star : Some more good control
Venser, Shaper Savant : More good bounce
Dissipation Field : If your fliers don't discourage people from attacking you this definitely will, especially since they know you can name cards.
Gitaxian Probe : Amazing for this deck
Telepathy : Same as above
Favorable Winds : Good support
Reliquary Tower : This is a staple in all my EDH decks
I hope that this wasn't too overwhelming. If you need any more help just let me know!

You definitely seem like you know what you're doing. I think you have some room for some powerful combos, though, and if you're looking for an affordable tutor that works well with blinking, Sidisi, Undead Vizier fits the bill.
Since you're already running Capsize , Deadeye Navigator , and Peregrine Drake , Palinchron and Great Whale also infinitely combo with it. You can also add the Pauper infinite combo that blinks Peregrine Drake and friends and either Mnemonic Wall , Archaeomancer , Possessed Skaab , Salvager of Secrets , or Scrivener using Ghostly Flicker , Displace , or Illusionist's Stratagem . The instant gets returned by the recursion, netting mana each time you loop it. I would also add Sphinx's Revelation . It's better than Stroke of Genius

Since you're on a budget, a couple great infinite mana combos you can put in to pump out tons of mana are Grand Architect + Pili-Pala and Isochron Scepter + Dramatic Reversal . With both those two, and the Master Transmuter + Gilded Lotus + Thran Dynamo combo you're already running, you can put in Blue Sun's Zenith , Increasing Confusion , Capsize and other spells for win cons. Whir of Invention would be another good include. I also recommend heading to the budget tab on the top right for this commander on EDHREC. If you're trying not to spend any more money, that will help you find places to shave the price a bit.

pesmerga87 Hey, thanks for the good suggestion! Peregrine Drake should probably be in this build. However, sometimes it's a dead cards. Peregrine Drake only does something useful if you have Deadeye Navigator. While Isochron Scepter even if you do not have Dramatic Reversal you can just throw a counterspell under it. I would argue the deck is more about drawing into Enter the Infinite to Laboratory Maniac.
Capsize I would not run at all because the cost is just to much. There is no need to buy back spells in a draw deck. Thanks for the comment friend.

So I’ve been playing kami a lot recently and I thought of a few cards you might enjoy...
Metamorphic Alteration is a very versatile clone effect that can shut down commanders turning them into an extra kami or go offensive turning your kami into giant monster since commander damage is tied to the creature card not the creature’s details.
Kederekt Leviathan is a mass bounce that is actually 2 mass bounce spells. It can also loop with clones like Phyrexian Metamorph. It's expensive, but it can be discarded early game till you get the mana.
Words of Wind is one I’ve just starting testing but it can turn all your draw into board control while letting you get value out of etb creatures and Paradox Engine. The other more subtle strength is it is another way to save you from decking yourself.
I don’t know how your group responds to extra turns but Nexus of Fate feels built for this commander.
All in all I’ve been having a lot of fun with this guy! I hope you get some good use from these suggestions!

Also, you may want to consider Capsize.. It can also bounces everything with infinite mana.

Hi there, I'm from the advertise your commander thread.
I used to have a Nin, the Pain Artist deck based on stealing and copying your opponents stuff. I always liked to win using your opponents cards, so its nice to see a deck with a similar theme.
I think your current build has a lot of room for optimization as there are many cards that have strictly or subjectively better counterparts. These are some suggestions for cards I would replace and what with:
Other cards that fit the theme of the deck: Clone, Stunt Double, Phyrexian Metamorph, Clever Impersonator, Roil Elemental, Vesuvan Doppelganger, Cackling Counterpart & Rite of Replication (Non budget: Bribery & Gilded Drake)
I would probably drop the flicker subtheme you currently have because you dont run a lot of creatures and go down a few lands (37 should be fine) in favor of more draw (Rhystic Study & Mystic Remora are nice). Also, one of the good things about black is the access to tutors. By adding tutors you increase the consistency of your deck, as they effectively serve as an extra copy of all the other cards in your deck. Lim-Dul's Vault, Beseech the Queen and Dark Petition are some good relatively cheap ones. (If you want to invest a bit of money in it, Demonic Tutor and Vampiric Tutor are great.)
I hope this helps and good luck with deckbuilding!
PS. Dont forget to comment on the previously posted deck in the 'advertise your commander deck' thread. ;)
