And I don't think I'd run Chief Engineer, Basilisk Collar, Aetherworks Marvel, Planar Bridge and Inspiring Statuary in this deck, so you would have plenty of synergistic, on-theme design space if you ditched them (e.g. if you like Echo Mage, you'll love Lighthouse Chronologist). One or two more lands wouldn't hurt either, same for a bit of removal, e.g. Lux Cannon.

Dewdrop Spy seems to be simply too weak - it doesn't generate any card advantage, it just lets you look at one card. How about Nimble Obstructionist instead? The problem about levelling creatures in a tempo deck, is that you have to spend mana in your own turn. Take Transcendent Master as an example - it's going to take a lot of mana (6, to be exact), before that really is anything better than the standard fare for 3/3 creatures in modern. You could also consider Reflector Mage in that slot.

mmmm.... looking a bit longer at it: Levelling is actually almost the greatest anti-tempo you can find. First of all, redundant copies are just that - redundant. You can't level more than one Lighthouse Chronologist or whatever, in the scope of a normal game. Second, removal is a real issue, since you lose quite a bit of tempo if you have to Vapor Snag a creature back to your own hand (against some decks, that happens quite a lot - grixis control, for example). And lose even more, if a creature is levelled, and then removed as you declare the last level-counter on the stack. You need some other kind of protection, and fewer creatures to protect, perhaps. That could be something like Gods Willing.

Time of Heroes is not all that great, either. Due to the cost of both playing AND levelling a creature, before it gets any bonus from Time of Heroes, you will have fewer creatures to receive the bonus... and that reduces the utility of the enchantment.

So far as I'm aware, Emrakul, the Aeons Torn is the only creature spell that gives you an unconditional extra turn, and it's banned in EDH. If you're playing without bans, then yeah you could run Emmy alongside something like Temur Sabertooth you could go infinite turns.

Other creatures legal in Animar that give you extra turns:

Lighthouse Chronologist can't really go infinite as it'll never trigger on your turn.

Sage of Hours would need non-creature spells to target it, as etb effects are not spells.

Timestream Navigator tucks itself. Good luck.

Wanderwine Prophets would require an endless supply of merfolk sacs to go infinite.

Wormfang Manta eats its own extra turn when you play/bounce it, unless you somehow have a Stifle effect every turn. Possible with something like Isochron Scepter, but that's a non-creature.

Leyline of Anticipation is a must-have in a deck like this ! lol

High Tide is also good for mono . Rhystic Study, Lighthouse Chronologist, maybe Caged Sun or Gilded Lotus. 41 land is a bit high; but you're Timmy-ing so yeah ;)

More Counterspells might help you get your strategy online, or stop opponent's from going off. Pongify and Rapid Hybridization are a good response to someone taking advantage of your commander hehe

Anywho +1 from me! I hope you'll check out some of my decks too, cheers!

Definite:Luminarch Ascension, Lighthouse Chronologist, Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip, Land Tax/Tithe,

Maybe:Orzhov Advokist, Yisan, the Wanderer Bard (Is this banned?), Dovin Baan, Gilded Lotus, Inexorable Tide, Myojin of Cleansing Fire, Vorel of the Hull Clade,

Probably not:Thalia's Lancers - planeswalkers are now legendary, As Foretold, Grimoire of the Dead, Lux Cannon, Mind Unbound, Pursuit of Knowledge, Pyramid of the Pantheon,

Potential Cuts:Liliana, the Last Hope - 1bb is hard to hit on curve since you're primarily GWU

Inspiring Call, Juniper Order Ranger, Viral Drake - these require too many pieces in play to be worth the amount of mana they cost, and/or are too situational.

great deck! I LOVE SIMIC!!!! (Almost as much as my love for selesnya) But I do have a couple recs. you can switch out Opt for Reason / Believe and maybe a Lighthouse Chronologist or even an Echo Mage! I've also seen Enclave Cryptologist do some work aswell!
