Replicate (3)(Blue) (When you play this spell, copy it for each time you paid its replicate cost. You may choose new targets for the copies.)
Choose target permanent an opponent controls. Search that player's library for a card with the same name and put it into play under your control. Then that player shuffles his or her library.

Didn't mean to get on your case about the mana base - I've just seen people dump a lot of money into mana trying to "fix" underoptimized decks and it makes me cringe. Sorry if I came across as rude.
I found a few relevant cards you might've missed. In particular: Dichotomancy is an even bigger bomb than Eradicate , since it can steal all the creatures from an opponent's deck instead of exiling them. Mimeofacture is similar, but requires an investment of 4 mana per creature. Splinter is an Eradicate that requires an artifact creature. And Verdant Succession works like Remembrance for green creatures, except it brings stuff directly onto the battlefield.
Other (less powerful) options: Bazaar of Wonders , Eye of Singularity , Echoing Truth , Sever the Bloodline , Declaration in Stone , Retraced Image , Bubbling Cauldron , Pack Hunt , and Reflector Mage . If you have some way to copy Spy Kit , Biovisionary and Doubling Chant could also work.
In general, I think the biggest challenge you'll face is that effects synergizing with Spy Kit are kind of all over the place. There's board wipes, removal, staxxy control, creature tutoring... but not a lot of actual finishers. You've got to make room not only for precursors to Spy Kit (draw, ramp, tutors, etc.), but stuff that can win the game.
Maybe focus on one or two archetypes for the cards enabled by Spy Kit, then pick an unrelated win con? Or fill up on stealing/copying effects that can help set up Spy Kit combos but also be used offensively? I don't know... interesting dilemma.

Hi I'm brewing around Shared Fate as well.
Let me know what you discover! Happy brewing!

Thanks a lot for all the suggestions guys! I've got a lot to think about here, but I removed Day's Undoing, Counterbore, and Mimeofacture for 2xRemand and Muddle the Mixture. I think this will help with consistency, slowing down the opponent, and generally controlling the board more effectively. I have also added a sideboard for bad matchups.
Also I'd like to thank everyone who has showed their support by upvoting and commenting here, it is as always very appreciated!

Love the deck. I don't think that Day's Undoing should be in the deck. The card dose trigger the cards that care about an opponent shuffling, but because as Day's Undoing is resolving the game is moved into the end step and those triggers cannot be placed on the stack Day's Undoing and triggers. If you are using it as a way to draw 7 cards and move your grave yard to your library, sorry for being a pain on that. My suggestion is to cut Counterbore, Day's Undoing, and Mimeofacture and putting in 3 Remands. That would reduce the number of times that the opponent is shuffling by two, but being able to slow the opponent down and being a cantrip could help you buy time to get to your win cons. And a large portion of decks run fetch lands, so opponents will be shuffling on their own as well making that reduction by 2 not feel as bad. If you are making a side board I would defiantly suggest Fulminator Mage. It would be good especially in the Tron match up. Destroy a Tron piece and then Surgical Extraction it away. I also suggest Wasteland Strangler in the side board. You have many ways to get cards into exile making it very easy to make the strangler into a extra removal spell against creature decks while being a creature itself. Sorry for the long post. I'm giving it a +1!

I remember a cycle of ones that were unbalanced for some odd reason, with two of them not being legal. Custodi Soulbinders, to the best of my knowledge, is not in fact legal in commander. There was one other, but I can't quite recall the name. I wouldn't know if there might be another quirk like that, or if they changed it so that all cards printed further in Conspiracy are EDH legal.
I don't know how many of those work, actually. You'd be surprised how rarely I am unsure of a rule interaction; congratulations finding one I need to read up on! I couldn't think of any off the top, so thank you for mentioning a few. I'll see what I can do with it; thank you, again!
If it works, Mimeofacture is actually already nearly set up in my commander deck for that application. Rubinia Soulsinger, gain control of a dude, Spy Kit, Lightning Greaves making it a durdle ball with shroud, then Mimeofacture all I want. I'll have to see about a way to copy that repeatedly, say, each turn... I've been thinking of getting Bribery but haven't wanted to dish out $20 for something I'll use once unfairly. I'll gladly go for a $4 combo that takes more pieces and is repeatable, if it can be done.

NotSquishedYet Yeah the EvilTwin combo is pretty strong but ban worthy? I don't think so, plus the only cards that weren't legalized as far as I know were the hidden agendas and other conspiracy cards, maybe a few that also related to things only when you drafted them as well, spy kit however is just an equipment, plus commander uses an adjusted ban list were everything is legal unless specifically stated, or your play group adds it to the ban list.But all in all I am looking forwards to spy kit, it makes alot ofcards that are bad really good, can't think of any names right now but any card that says 'equal to the number of cards that share a name with it.' Become funny. Like Mask of the Mimic or Pack Hunt or Bifurcate both are oracles to look for shared names not copies just grabbing and playing any creature in your deck or Echoing Decay and Bile Blight and Homing Lightning if your swarming Echoing Courage is hilarious or perhaps your more of a Echoing Truth or MaelstromPulse or Sever the Bloodline or Eye of Singularity for board wipes? Goblin tokens a problem? Izzet Staticaster just watch out for the most dreadful Mimeofacture stealing literally every creature in your deck.
When I said I couldn't think of any of the top, I was kidding, super excited for spy kit!and @NewHorizon what could be better than faking identities or framing others and punishing them for the crime?
