Haunted Cloak Discussion

Okay so the main problem here seems to be focus. Yeah your curve is bad, but usaDiabetic said enough about that. Imma talk about cards. Also I'm linking my deck at the bottom of this comment because it's very similar. Borrow what you will.
There are a lot of cards in this brew that I looked at and just thought 'what are you doing here'. Whether they didn't fit the theme or were just outright bad, these are some cuts I might suggest for taking USA's and my advice into account.
Crystalline Crawler. It feels kind of useless. Like, what is it there to do? It's either a subpar mana rock or a weak attacker/blocker.
Guardian of the Gateless doesn't interact with +1/+1 counters, is 5 mana, and really isn't great in general. Either you block a bunch of stuff and it dies or you just use it as 2 blockers, and there are much better things to do with 5 mana.
Majestic Myriarch, while powerful, is not a card for this deck. Once again there is the lack of interaction with counters and also it's just a big dumb creature with a lot of keywords. At 5 mana? Not worth it.
Noosegraf Mob will die far too quickly for any counters to be placed on him. In commander I'm casting 5 spells every turn by the time you're casting this guy.
Reflector Mage, while a good card in general, has no place in this deck. Once again, why is it here?
The same is true for Reveillark.
And for Vizier of the Menagerie.
And for Nissa, Steward of Elements.
And for Haunted Cloak, Inspiring Statuary, Panharmonicon, Paradox Engine, Approach of the Second Sun, Migratory Route, Nissa's Pilgrimage, Spitting Image, As Foretold, and Ancient Excavation. All of these are good cards, some really good, but their are other decks that could utilize them better. They're just goodstuff in this deck, where elsewhere they could really be something!
Incremental Growth nay not be worth it for 5 mana. There are much better plays for that cost.
And once again, after you put in some ramp, I have a ton of suggestions for replacing suboptimal cards here. If you'd like me to go into more detail on specific all-stars I will. If I came off as really harsh I'm sorry, this actually looks like one of the first commander decks I ever built myself so I felt like I had to comment, for nostalia's sake. Thanks for bearing with me through this behemoth of a comment, and happy brewing.

along with that, if you want to use Etrata as your primary win-con, you may want to run more haste equips so you don't just sit there twiddling your thumbs while everyone else gets a turn to remove Etrata before you even get to attack. i saw you have swiftfoot boots already, so other cheap cast alternatives to add can be Lightning Greaves and Ring of Valkas being the most mana efficient, to Strider Harness, Chariot of Victory, and Haunted Cloak as a slightly more expensive alternative.
lastly, I would sneak in a Hatred into the deck if you can, just to keep people off guard, when they thought they had a 3 turn clock, all of a sudden turned into insta-death by commander damage.

@DiggleMcGee, thank you for the suggestions. I did add a Thornbite Staff to the mix. Its just too good. I do like Soldevi Adnate, and he would pair nicely with my Priest of Yawgmoth as another mana-dork/synergy option.
I do like Haunted Cloak, and Marionette Master has been under consideration for some time. Do you have suggestions on what I should cut to make some of these additions? I'm very interested in your suggestions. Thanks for taking a look.

How do you feel about something like Soldevi Adnate? Its not exactly an early drop but you can get free artifact creatures with a Mycosynth Golem. I noticed you have a longbow how about getting a second support equip like Thornbite Staff or Scythe of the Wretched. A Haunted Cloak gives you access to a bunch of really nice keywords that lets glissa use the death touch trample combo and easily swing and defend the turn she comes out. Finally, Marionette Master can be a very powerful win con. If you put all the counters on her you can do 4 damage to all opponents on every artifact death which gets out of control very fast

The Challenge that I propose is this: pick a plane, then design a featured Commander of a Legend from the plane. The twist is that the Commander needs to be at least two colors and be designed as a Planeswalker that can be played as Commander. Describe the idea for the deck, how the Commander's Spark triggered, and a general idea of cards you might include as part of the deck if you were designing it for sale. For instance:
Deck name: Saving Grace Plane: Innistrad Commander: Sigarda, Heron of Light (3)(G)(W) Sigarda, Heron of Light can be your Commander. [+2] Put a 1/1 Human token with hexproof into play under your control. [-2] Discard a creature card from your hand. Put a 4/4 Angel token with flying and hexproof into play under your control. [-8] You gain an emblem with, "Creatures you control have lifelink and hexproof. Creatures you control may not be sacrificed. 
Spark: After the confrontation with the fused, corrupted Bruna and Gisela, after the 'victory' of the Gatewatch, Sigarda's heart longed for answers, for how to help heal her world. Her heart's cry pulled her out of her world to another, before pulling her back home, where she found Arlinn Kord waiting to speak with her. Realizing now the existence of other worlds, Sigarda has determined to find a way to keep the humans of her ravaged world safe from both internal threats and threats from other planes.
Deck concept: Angels, Humans and Spirits working together to protect and support each other.
Sample cards: Briarbridge Patrol, Cathedral Sanctifier, Champion of Lambholt, Champion of the Parish, Devout Chaplain, Bygone Bishop, Dearly Departed, Drogskol Shieldmate, Angel of Glory's Rise, Angel of Jubilation, Herald of War, Haunted Cloak, Avacyn's Collar, Inquisitor's Flail

Hey, awesome deck! I love Licia to no end, I've been looking into her for a while now. I have some suggestions to make your deck stronger
Like Tavern Swindler and Gonti's Machinations. These are great early drops, and concerning licia, they ramp you very fast for no mana required! Instead of Temur Battle Rage and Brute Strength, consider Abzan Falconer and Duelist's Heritage and Rune-Tail, Kitsune Ascendant. Heritage can be used politically, as you inch players not to attack you by promising double strike, and Falconer is amazing, nuf said. I also wanted to mention Illusionist's Bracers, Key to the City, and Ashling's Prerogative, if any of those strike your fancy. Lastly, for the late game, I'd recommend Treasury Thrull, Crypt Ghast, Chandra's Ignition, and Necrologia instead of your Syphon Mind.
The deck looks fine as it is, so it's hard to find cuts. Without testing your deck, the weaker cards seem to be Haunted Cloak, Baneslayer Angel, Josu Vess, Lich Knight, Drana's Emissary, Felidar Sovereign (you've a lot of wincons anyway), and Blood Tribute. Some of the stronger cards I see are Twilight Prophet, Sword of War and Peace, Hide (which I'm adding to my deck as we speak), and Crested Sunmare.
Hope this helps!

This deck looks killer. My suggestions would be to add Expedition Map to get your sweet lands in your hand, and something that offers trample. O-Naginata and Haunted Cloak are cheap equipment that can get the job done. +1 from me
