Late game you shouldn't really need Braids so its no risk. Early game you can use the Mimic Vat on all the demons and dragons people will be dropping. But yeah, if you put your boss in the vat and the vat gets destroyed she's gone.

I would stop worrying until you've played it a few times. If you can't counter or remove all the threats the other guys will have to. Braids is pretty group hug and you will need the opponents to take themselves out.
Big things will be hitting the board and going away so Mimic Vat could be huge, especially if you manage to get Braids in it. Pop her out on your turn when you have something to drop and then she goes away so only you get the benefit.

Thanks for the suggestions!
I own a copy of Kruphix, God of Horizons that I plan on putting in another deck that's under constructioon. If it doesn't work out there it could go here.
If I decide to up my budget requirements, I may go for Helm of the Host although I do own a copy in another deck. Mimic Vat is nice although I've never used it before and will need practice on using it properly lol.
Not doing Sen Triplets as fun as it would be.

I think the beauty of this commander is that you can go tribal without needing huge numbers of your tribe. One cat gets the bonus from your boss. I would stay away from Coat of Arms which helps goblins et al far more than you.
But Mimic Vat dropped in price and, worst case scenario, you have a steady source of cats. Best case, you cast your boss, he dies, he goes into the vat and now you double up your eminence bonus from the field and command zone. Helm of the Host has the same effect because when a card states the name of the card it only refers to that specific card, not all cards of that name.
Chameleon Colossus is a cat with very useful abilities.

Kruphix, God of Horizons could recycle unused colored mana.
Sen Triplets maybe? You have mana colors to cast anything

All the shapeshifters are scarecrows. Mimic Vat has been reprinted a dozen times now, it can make scarecrows on anybody's turn.
You have no Sorcery or Instants? Dense Foliage only screws other people while you can still kill things with scarecrows.
Your scarecrows are punks after the initial etb. Maybe cards like Switcheroo?
