For this deck, it might be good to focus on mostly red spells to copy with Zada. Good ones are

Expedite (for mass haste + draw)
Kari Zev's Expertise (for a free spell + haste for each creature you have
Borrowed Hostility, Seething Anger, Reckless Charge, Downhill Charge, Invigorated Rampage, Temur Battle Rage (each for massive boosts)
Heat Shimmer, Twinflame (both for copying all you stuff)

A backup for Zada could be the Mirrorwing Dragon. Another good way to fill the board for Zada is with token makers like Krenko's Command and Dragon Fodder.

UnleashedHavok, I like your suggestion. I'm wondering what I should cut for it. My first thought is Izzet Chronarch. I was also thinking Heat Shimmer as it works similarly.

Sculpting Steel/Phyrexian Metamorph+Sharuum the Hegemon+Altar of the Brood = infinite mill

Nature's Will/Bear Umbra+Aggravated Assault/Hellkite Charger = infinite attack steps

Teysa, Orzhov Scion+Darkest Hour+Blasting Station+a creature = infinite damage

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed+Walking Ballista = infinite damage.

Melira, Sylvok Outcast/Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit+Kitchen Finks/Murderous Redcap+ a sac outlet = infinite life/damage and if sac outlet is Blasting Station/Viscera Seer/Altar of Dementia infinite damage/scry/mill aswell.

Kormus Bell+Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth+Massacre Wurm/Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite = no lands for opponents (lockdown)

Exquisite Blood+Sanguine Bond = infinite life loss/life gain

Labratory Maniac+Mesmeric Orb+Basalt Monolith = infinite self mill +draw=win

similar combo works with Labratory Maniac+Puresight Merrow+Paradise Mantle = infinite self exile

Omnath, Locus of Rage+Elemental Mastery+Intruder Alarm = infinite haste tokens that die for infinitex3 damage, but the combo works similarly with any other token making engine.

Heat Shimmer/Twinflame+a creature for initial target+Dualcaster Mage = infinite dualcasters with haste

So, working on an optimized Feldon and I think I've settled on two combos and would like to know if anyone had thoughts.

So considering Feldon is a reanimator I'm going to use mostly creature based combos.

1.) Kiki + Zealous. With Feldon's ability it's easy to just "during end step" zealous and steal a Ghostly Prison, then untap and activate Feldon for Kiki and go off. Requires setup but that's not as hard as it sounds due to the number of draw and discard effects.

2.) Dualcaster, dualcaster is good value in Feldon because you can reanimate it to counter a counter or copy something like Tooth and Nail to go off before someone else. Etc. the other part of the dualcaster combo is Twinflame and Heat Shimmer, these have to be in hand which is a bit of a bummer but with 2 it shouldn't be too hard. Target Feldon, animate dualcaster, infinite dualcasters.

To go along with these I plan on running Purphoros, God of the Forge and Altar of Dementia, you can Altar yourself early game to get the engines online and later you can Altar everyone out of the game if you can't attack with infinite guys.

Any thoughts on these?

Yes but technically Zada's copy enters the stack before ever entering the field. To which I can even in response cast something like accelerate on Zada during the loop and draw cards then allowing the loop to recur until I see fit then the Zada copy enters and I choose to sac it or the real one. Then if you wanted to get reallly cute you could technically make infinite copies of the Zada since you do have the ability with the choice to sac on the stack to copy her again and if you have Outpost Siege on board they die they take life and yeah they die. But this would require both Heat Shimmer and Twin Flame I though would not recommend doing that though because it is very easy to get maelstrom pulsed in response and lose the whole thing and lose your dualcaster back up plan.
