That should do it! 100 card deck!
The biggest upside to my switches and drops is the extreme amount of lowering that is done to the average cmc of the deck, along with the droppage of slower cards that do little without other spells. The new gameplan would be use discard and disruption like countermagic and removal to stop your opponents just long enough to use Laboratory Maniac with Demonic Consultation or Tainted Pact to exile your deck, and usually a draw spell like Brainstorm. More tutors for consistent gameplay is in the switches too.

KongMing Thank you for your suggestions. Aligned Hedron Network is really a niche card. Could be good against some decks in my group but would be a dead card otherwise. It really depends on your meta but it is not bad. I run Suture Priest in my Trostani deck and it didn't helped much yet. It hasn't prvoked the big life loss or token stop, yet. Mostly it got countered or destroyed right away when someone plays tokens. I'll consider Chord of Calling, but semms a bit too situational at the moment. Blade of Selves is expensive mana wise but could bring an opponent down in a swing. I will test it for sure! Conjurer's Closet reads good, especially with a defender who also has card draw like Wall of Blossoms or Axebane Guardian.
UndeadSpider1990 Thank you for your suggestion, but like HobbyGamer007 said, Myth Unbound isn't that good of a card and reads a lot better than it is. Sadly Command Beacon wasn't reprinted with C18, so it's still expensive and I wan't to keep this deck budget friendly.

I feel I should point out that Mega's combo also produces infinite mana of any color. If you net +1 U each cycle, after you produce an arbitrary amount of blue you no longer need it to cast Phantasmal Image and can replace each time you would tap LED for blue with whatever other color you want/need.
Also while I'm here...
Cards you might want to consider:
Entomb = Arguably one of the best tutors for Muldrotha.
Command Beacon = Never pay for command tax ever again.
Any extra turn spells = with your Eternal Witness and either Deadeye Navigator or a sac outlet gives you infinite turns. My list runs Walk the Aeons and Crucible of Worlds as well to let me just buyback each cast to the same effect.
Lotus Petal = insanely good early game
Mindslicer = more of a pet card of mine than anything else really. With your yard being a second hand, putting everyone to topdeck mode doesn't really hurt you but it can absolutely cripple opponents and make it difficult for them to come up with answers.
Just some food for thought.

You are all right with 2 cmc I was somehow focused on Drift of Phantasms, I need to reconsider all tutors you mentioned.
Vlasiax Thank you but I think I'm good for now with ramp. But I'll keep them in mind! Beastmaster Ascension is also a good suggestion, but I think it won't survive long enough since our playgrup is very anti-enchantment, that's the reason I dont run much and it would have to survive 2-3 turns on average to give a bonus.
HobbyGamer007Absolutely no problems, comments with good suggestions are always welcome! You are more than right with Trickbind. I overlooked it's benefits over Stifle and I'd probably include it in a future update, but I don't know if I part from Disallow. Until now Arcades didn't draw as much hate as other commanders but the threat is growing. Command Beacon spiked like crazy and I just don't want to buy it for this reason. I hope for a reprint in upcoming Commander 2018. The other suggestions are not bad either but I may go with Yavimaya Hollow since land destruction is not a big deal in our playgroup, yet.
Mitrian Thank you for your suggestions. Just about two days ago I've seen a lifegain Arcades on here and I suggested him to use Trostani, Selesnya's Voice since I run her as a commander. Nonetheless I think she could be extremely hard to cast in a 3 color deck for . Also It would draw my deck in another direction and I already have a lifegain deck. As I said earlier, don't underestimate the cards which pump toughness, they win games and since it's a beatdown deck it's not important if the are at sorcery speed (besides only Steadfastness is a sorcery). But your deck sounds very fun to play and you have a lot of good synergies. I'd be more than interested to see your full decklist! Also I'm interested if you have had any issues in casting Trostani and how the overall performance of the deck is and.

Sorry for the many comments, I can't seem to focus today xD
If you are worried for Arcedes drawing too much hate, there is Command Beacon that can help. One of the strongest protectors out there is Sylvan Safekeeper. Sure sacrificing a land sucks, but if your opponents see that their removal will be for naught, they will use it on something else. Assault Formation works and can be tutored by Muddle the Mixture. Other than that there's still Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots and if you wanna be really aggressive about it and your playgroup is slow enough Asceticism

Not sure if you'd be in the market for a Morality Shift to give you access to all the creatures in your library.
Overall I think Korlash would be a better commander, since it's easier to tutor/draw Haakon then discard him, rather than having to draw Command Beacon then use it then discard him, and Korlash can help ramp and thin the deck earlier.
