If you're not against running tutors, I think Firemind's Foresight is pretty good. It lets you tutor up Reiterate , Desperate Ritual / Pyretic Ritual and Banefire / Searing Touch and combo off.

I'd also suggest some of the more expensive CMC instants/sorceries that are normally bad, but become great when their cost is reduced. Cards like Contradict , Desertion , Dismiss , Dominate , Lost in the Mist , Blatant Thievery , and Volcanic Vision , to name a few.

Inexorable Tide is also great for the proliferating.

I would consider replacing Dominate with Mass Manipulation

DrkNinja I love Electrodominance and am pretty hyped on it. The only problem I can find is that it might be a little bit of a nonbo with a lot of X spells I play. But Electrodominance into a Firemind's Foresight sounds sweet. Mass Manipulation seemed too clunky and slow here and I think I'd probably stick to Dominate.

Einfach mal ein paar Ideen

Leveler für Laboratory Maniac + einmal karten ziehen Spellbook

Cryptoplasm Dominate etwas billiger, als die teuren copy spells

Mind Unbound

um den commander mehr zu nutzen vllt, Paradox Engine + billige spells wie Ponder +High Tide oder infinite mana wäre lit

Ich glaube du brauchst Mana... Solemn Simulacrum immer gut. ich weiß nicht ob die Kreaturen und das auf die Hand geben gut ist vielleicht sind richtige boardwhipes besser und du schützt dich mit günstigeren removal spells Paradox Engine und dein CMDR geben dir die Karten. Propaganda immer gut: Skullclamp

Mana Solemn Simulacrum Everflowing Chalice Dreamscape Artist hast ja die Karten High Tide

Consecrated Sphinx vllt für eine der Kreaturen Temple Bell + Consecrated Sphinx

Paradox engine und Consecrated Sphinx kosten glaub ich was...

@Vash13 Until I saw the Commander I was right there with you in doubting that this could function. The only win condition I saw was Azor's Elocutors, but Arcades, the Strategist lets all of his defenders fight. From what I can tell, this deck is fairly reliant on keeping its commander on the field, making it vulnerable to spot removal that can Unmake it or any other cards that can Grab the Reins of his commander to make it Turn Against his other forces because you'd really Dominate the game if you could separate this deck from its Commander.

Pithing Needle plus the cards SynergyBuild mentioned. To shut zacama down. Or play blue with a lot of counterspells. Or play steal cards like In Bolas's Clutches, Dominate and such.

Madcookie on ETB effects on creatures stolen ...

@KablamoBoom If you were to Dominate Sleeper Agent you still don't get to retarget its ETB effect. People explained it but I see there is still some misunderstandings. MTGArena or Xmage is great at visualizing this type of stuff, but imagine the ETB as a separate "card", popping on the stack. You can remove the creature card from the battlefield, but its trigger "card" is still on the stack and is controlled by the person on whose side the creature entered the battlefield. Therefore with effects like Dominate that target stuff already on the battlefield, you don't control the ETB trigger and can't retarget it. Imagine we are playing commander with a third person. He casts Sleeper Agent and it resolves. He says "Madcookie will get the creature", you cast Dominate, before the trigger has resolved and steal it. Then the trigger which exists on the stack as "Madcookie gains control of this object eg.Sleeper Agent" resolves and you lose control of the creature and I gain control of it and will lose 2 life on my upkeep if it is still there.

Lastly I suggested Aethersnatch because I got the feeling you were interested in getting a certain ETB. Once a creature has entered the battlefield any ETB from it go on the stack and are controlled by the person whose side of the battlefield it entered play and as far as I know there aren't any cards that can steal triggers from the stack.

@Boza Yeah, I think cards like Akroan Horse and Sleeper Agent were throwing me off. Both triggered abilities, both saying "you do X", and technically both work the same. But I guess if you Dominate a Sleeper Agent with the trigger on the stack your opponent still loses the life, not you. Some part of my brain gets its wires crossed when the creature still exists as its trigger is resolving.
