I'm not entirely clear on how this deck is supposed to win. You have four core mechanics here (Phasing, Banding, Shadow, and letting walls attack), but the deck doesn't seem to have the support to make any of them shine.
You might consider breaking this up in to multiple decks and focusing on 1 or 2 of these things so that you can add more support/synergy and really dig the power out of some of these mechanics.
The thing that makes Banding strong is if you can crank out some tokens and then redirect all of the damage being taken by the band. Then you can voltron up a bander and go to town. Baton of Morale is your friend here, as it can give Banding to actual good creatures.
Shadow also plays well with a voltron strategy. There might be some sort of Banding/Shadow equipment deck that would be reasonable out there.
For phasing, I think it would go best in a Zur the Enchanter deck. The idea there is that you fetch Teferi's Veil as soon as possible and load up your board with undercosted creatures with post-combat sacrifice effects (e.g. Fog Elemental and Unearth creatures and just try to beat down. Veil prevents those creatures from dying, so you can get some pretty good creatures for really cheap with that approach.
If you want to attack with walls, you might consider helming the deck with Doran, the Siege Tower and maybe also running Assault Formation. Of course, you need a reliable way to find/protect Rolling Stones with that strategy, but there's almost certainly a deck in there somewhere.
Good luck :)

I use to have hand me down cards and actually had a ton of of the Egotist...still want a foil for fun.
Never the less, I had cards like Fog Elemental (might be too good) and Vaporous Djinn come to mind. Big things but at big cost, not sure if that quite fulfills the same message you are going for, but I find it funny.
Also the amazing card Foresight would be great.
