Have you thought about adding in Day of Destiny and In Bolas's Clutches? These two I think would be great to cast at instant speed

You're right.

If an aura is entering the battlefield by some way other than resolving as a spell, you choose a legal object to attach it to as it enters. It can be anything that satisfies the "Enchant NN" ability of the aura, as long as it doesn't have protection from one of the aura's qualities (protection specifically disallows enchanting/equipping). If you can't choose a legal object then the aura stays in whatever zone it's currently in.

In Bolas's Clutches will only give you control of whatever it's currently enchanting. If it becomes unattached then the control-changing effect will end.

Having Aminatou, the Fateshifter as commander:

If I play In Bolas's Clutches or any similar effect on an opponents permanent and use aminatous -1 ability and exile the aura. If I’m correct 1: when it returns, it attaches to something else (not targeting, thus getting around hexproof and shroud) 2: I lose control of the first thing it enchanted

Am I correct or does the aura go to the graveyard, and/or do I keep control of the permanent?

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.

Reclamation Sage is a permanent card that you can bring back over and over! Play at least 1 Mainboard!

Prodigious Growth is an awesome Permanent card that you can bring back over and over!

Torgaar, Famine Incarnate has a powerful ETB that you can use to reset your life, OR shut lifegain decks up!

In Bolas's Clutches another permanent that you might want to return from the grave!

Keep in mind, ALL of the saga's destroy themselves so Time of Ice or The Eldest Reborn could be really fun to resurrect over and over >:)
