Dovin, Grand Arbiter
Legendary Planeswalker — Dovin
+1: Until end of turn, whenever a creature you control deals combat damage to a player, put a loyalty counter on Dovin, Grand Arbiter.
-1: Create a 1/1 colourless Thopter artifact creature token with flying. You gain 1 life.
-7: Look at the top ten cards of your library. Put three of them into your hand and the rest on the bottom of your library in a random order.

Thanks so much for the feedback and suggestions, winden02! Will definitely keep Knight of Autumn in mind when testing.
For Growth Spiral I've found the ramp to be very helpful in the early game, and that it combos very well with Thaumatic Compass Flip. This reminds me that I should include at least 1 Basic Forest card to the list. For Growth, the +1 instant draw speed also makes the card shine mid-late game.
For hard removal, you're absolutely correct that this list is lacking (nephew started with less to focus on lifegain and draw spells). In testing, I've found that 3 Cleansing Nova and 1 Settle the Wreckage have done well in that they are supported by stall cards such as Spires of Orazca , Dawn of Hope , Angel of Grace , Lyra Dawnbringer , Hydroid Krasis , and the 6 Planeswalkers who; create tokens ( Dovin, Grand Arbiter , Karn, Scion of Urza , and Tezzeret, Artifice Master ), tap opponent's creature ( Dovin, Architect of Law ), and removal ( Teferi, Hero of Dominaria ).
Again, I don't feel this list or ratios are complete. Will continue testing and truly appreciate the feedback!

I didn't see target player in the ultimate, I assumed creature. So, yeah maybe? I don't know.
I actually am more interested in Dovin, Grand Arbiter but obviously not in a control deck.
Getting to that Ultimate in a midrange deck or a deck with the aforementioned Lingering Souls is really easy. Then you get to Dig Through Treasure Cruise on turn 4

So I pulled the new Dovin, Dovin, Grand Arbiter at my prerelease this weekend, and I'd like to find a non-superfriends deck to put him in.
A few options I was looking at were more creature based commanders such as:
Ephara, God of the Polis : A constant creature maker sounds great in a deck like this.
Temmet, Vizier of Naktamun : makes the tokens become unblockable? Maybe? I'm not quite sure if he's as strong.
Any ideas on who to run? I'm open to about any Azorius commander.

Renleck30 Thanks for the suggestoins! Favorable Winds is better than Glass of the Guildpact in this deck now that I think about it, since it can buff Dovin, Grand Arbiter 's Thopter tokens and also buff Supreme Phantom . I was thinking about whether or not to run Kaya's Wrath over Golden Demise , but I think the lifegain from Wrath and the fact it can pop my afterlife spirits makes it better against aggro.

Added thus far:
Mystic Remora: What else could I put for Draw in Enchantments?
Dovin, Grand Arbiter: Because the Planeswalker Deck Dovin WILL relace this anyway...
Forge of Heroes: I wish there is a Planeswalker Commander in 5 colors... & is usable in Superfriends. Only then will this return.
Mox Amber: Replaced w/ Chrome Mox.
Cascading Cataracts: It's better than that other land that produces all 5 colors at once, but what the heck, I'l cut it.
Vedalken Orrery: At least the Leyline has the benefit of the doubt...
/ Nahiri, the Harbinger: Rummaging, & Spot Removal via Exiling prevents any merit to remove.
/ Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast: WHY. Why does everyone oppose this guy? He makes tokens, has spot removal, & even can copy other artifacts, be it on the field, or your grave. 3 great abilities already. I'm keeping this.
? Sphinx's Revelation: This is crazy as card dray as it is... I ponder how to bust it.
? Dovin, Architect of the Law: Not even on this site, but he's known for Lifegain + Card draw; as his first ability; & his Ultimate doubles as a quasi-Silence. I really wouldn't cut him for anything. :/
? (Whatever card that protects Non-Basics): W/ so many cards using Nonbasics against them, be it Back to Basics or Ruination, I wonder what to do about this: Terra Eternal for Indestructible Lands? Mind Over Matter for multitap control? Even Turnabout?
I'll continue from here...
