I'm using a Keiga steal-deck that works slightly differently, though the principle is the same. In that deck, I've had fun with Legacy's Allure, Aura Thief and Memnarch. In case you feel like spending some more money, Empress Galina is just fantastic; she can steal all legendary permanents including planeswalkers.
Happy brewing and playing!

1)Happens all the time, no worries.
3)Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury, Memnarch, Azami, Lady of Scrolls, Derevi, Empyrial Tactician, Uril, the Miststalker, Mizzix of the Izmagnus, Selvala, Explorer Returned, Trostani, Selesnya's Voice, Ramos, Dragon Engine, Omnath, Locus of Rage, Dragonlord Dromoka, Tajic, Blade of the Legion, Rafiq of the Many, Yahenni, Undying Partisan, Gishath, Sun's Avatar, and Lazav, Dimir Mastermind. The first four I listed are the biggest threat.
4)I use it for Meren mostly but if she isn't out or I will get more value from an ETB I'll use it for that.

@enpc thanks for the comment!
Interesting idea with Dark Petition since almost a quarter of the deck goes towards spell mastery. Will def consider it. I run Reclaim over Regrowth strictly for another Isochron Scepter target if need be.
Memnarch is crazy strong when paired with a lot of mana; but at the same time can be a dead card in hand or put a target on your back on the 'field. It's one of the three main wincons, treated similar to a Laboratory Maniac insta-win, but can still do work without infinite mana.
Aetherflux Reservoir again can win without infinites, but all the fetch/shock lands, mana rocks, and enchantments that cost life can hurtttt

@ZendikariWol Thanks, that helps a lot. I'll respond in order of your comment.
-Massacre Wurm is amazing and with a few ways to double his triggered ability he is even better so he has to stay. That artwork too!
-Shriekmaw is in there because he can get rid of stuff and get me an experience counter. He is a bit narrow but I count it as 2 CMC and I'm trying to reduce my curve. I will definitely consider cutting it though.
-Rune-Scarred Demon is so great, I always cheat him in and he wins me the game if I'm recurring him every turn or doubling his ETB ability. Can't cut it.
-Deathrite Shaman was recently added and I'm not 100% sold on him yet. I like that it's grave hate and I'm anticipating Muldrotha, the Gravetide is going to be a huge presence after Dominaria comes out. I may Swap him for Agent of Erebos depending how the meta changes.
-Walking Ballista is only in there because I recently added in Protean Hulk and Ballista allows for me to infinite combo win. that whole group of 5 cards is just on a trial period for the time being so Ballista may end up coming out of the deck. (see most recent update)
-Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest is in as a combo piece, he lets persist creatures return to the battlefield indefinitely. He is also good for going wide but that is rarely my strategy. He is staying for the time being.
I see your reasoning behind running more cards that don't require sacrifice to do things. My reason behind having cards that can self sacrifice is I want to be able to get value from the creatures without relying on a sac outlet. In my meta a sac outlet will usually not last long because they know it will end badly for them if it stays on the battlefield. Another reason is I decided to go with an ETB theme, Panharmonicon and Strionic Resonator make them even better. Depending on how stupid my board state gets I sometime have quadruple triggers for every ETB.
I'm going to break the deck down and see if I will include some of your suggestions. The ones I'm currently considering are:
-Vindictive Lich - literally bought this card a week ago with the intention of putting it in but couldn't decide what to replace.
-Wurmcoil Engine - was in here before might be in here again.
-Archfiend of Depravity - I tried it out briefly, if the art was better I'd put it in immediately. Still might though.
-Thragtusk - great card but I'm not a fan of the artwork.
Thanks again for the comments and the +1! Keep an eye out for the updated list in a day or two.

Rune-Scarred Demon could easily be Dark Petition to help make it more castable. Memnarch seems bad (in general) but especially in this list. it's too expensive and you already have enough infinite mana outlets. You can also swap Reclaim out with Regrowth.
I also run a Dramatic Scepter Thrasios/Tymna build: Triton Weaver if you wanted to get any ideas.

Seems like Memnarch could be a more thematic commander. It would require swapping those Wastes for Islands though, if you wanted to use its ability.

Honor-Worn Shaku is pretty neat with your legend focus. Also Thalia's Lancers. Even Yomiji, Who Bars the Way might be worth consideration. Legendary artifact creatures are also potentially pretty high value, like Memnarch, Silas Renn, Seeker Adept,Bosh, Iron Golem, and Sharuum the Hegemon; you get to meet your artifact synergies and legend synergies all in one go.
