Yeah, sure. Keranos will work is my version of this deck.

Sigil of Sleep works on cards like Lobber Crew and the single pingers can stop a game with any artifact that gives them deathtouch.

Charisma and Cowardice are hilarious but the card i think you should really look at is Meishin, the Mind Cage. your guys don't need to have a power in order to do damage...

If you don’t plan on winning with combat damage ... Meishin, the Mind Cage

So, I've only been playing with my Arcades deck a little, so this advice is based on my experience which is limited. Arcades only lets creatures with defender deal damage based on their toughness, so all the big butts you have are not going to turn into massive damage. if you load your deck with low cost defender creatures with big toughness (e.g. Steel Wall), you will have more cards in your hand than you need, Arcades is that good at putting cards in your hand (all that is to say, I don't think you need a card draw sub-theme).
Vigilance is awesome in a deck like this so Brave the Sands and Always Watching are better than they seem.
Meishin, the Mind Cage is hilarious. I've only had it out once, but giving your opponents creatures -7/-0 while you swing in with a Wall of Frost just feels good.
Some other cards I would consider are: Wave of Reckoning, Triton Tactics, Sacred Rites, Mizzium Skin, Bar the Door, and Wall of Faith.
Good Luck!! this deck is super fun to play with!!!

Take a look at Meishin, the Mind Cage - it looks like it would be really good in your deck.

Love it, I'd definitely add more threat cards like Heroes' Podium and up the count of threatening legendary creatures like Evra, Halcyon Witness, Medomai the Ageless or Jazal Goldmane who are especially good with flash cause then people can't see them coming

Also definitely add Honor-Worn Shaku[%22Legendary%22]+![%22Artifact%22]+![%22Land%22]&color=+![R]+![G]+![B]

Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker, Kami of the Crescent Moon, Lena, Selfless Champion, Linvala, the Preserver, Meishin, the Mind Cage, Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker (really nice with flash), Odric, Lunarch Marshal, Rune-Tail, Kitsune Ascendant, Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir, Thada Adel, Acquisitor, Yosei, the Morning Star

I think you need some card draw. Everything in this deck is cheap to cast and you could easily throw out as many walls as you can draw.

Other than that generic advice maybe Meishin, the Mind Cage?

Eerie Interlude can be a massive draw spell when Arcades is out, also a great way to protect yourself from board wipes.
Meishin, the Mind Cage is silly in this deck, but amazing.
You probably want a little more mana fixing and a few less creatures, since the deck is so evenly spread.
Looks like a great start! Good Luck!
