Nivix Barrier Discussion

Possible cards to add: Island, Wall of Mist, Orator of Ojutai, Nivix Barrier, Monastery Flock, Jeskai Barricade, Geist of the Archives, Dragon's Eye Sentry, Doorkeeper, Sylvan Caryatid, Profaner of the Dead, Triton Tactics, Abzan Beastmaster, Bastion Protector, Lightning Greaves, Kindred Boon, Kindred Summons, Valorous Stance, Dive Down, Mizzium Skin, Sight of the Scalelords, Guard Gomazoa, Gomazoa, Hover Barrier, Spectra Ward, Whispersilk Cloak, and Oblation.
That's about all I got for now. Basically, more creatures, keep Arcades safe, better cards. There are more cards that are pullable too but the ones above really should go at the very least for more creatures. Pass the message along.

I removed Nivix Barrier in favor of Sharding Sphinx to increase thopter production, while Jhessian Thief is taking a backseat for Graceful Adept to increase the chances of achieving no hand size limit, and replaced an Island for Seat of the Synod for insure more artifact triggers.

Monastery Flock could replace Nivix Barrier? I will replace the Contradict and Bone to Ash with Dispel and Negate. I could put couple of Treasure Cruise in but what would they replace? I want to keep it at 60 cards so there's a better chance of pulling more Sphinxs.

I think you could cut down on the creatures and add a few more lands.
You seem to have a jace theme but 4 Jace planeswalkers feels like a bit overkill? Personally I don't like to keep more than 2 of one planeswalker type in my deck, but if you aren't running into any issues with them sitting in your hand, its fine. I would probably take out Jace's Sanctum though as it only contributes to 1/10th of your deck.
While your commander functions well with illusions, its a shame she encourages auras which don't. A couple could be useful in protecting her and doubling her draw: Eel Umbra, Crab Umbra, Pemmin's Aura, Diplomatic Immunity even Call to the Kindred (you have 16 wizards currently, or could throw it on an illusion that wouldn't die).
I feel like you are missing a bunch of decent illusions. Phantasmal Image is excellent. Cloud Dragon is a decent flier. Phantom Warrior is just a 2/2 but a very consistent attacker. Nivix Barrier is a solid wall and combat trick combo. Veiling Oddity can open you up for a big attack, even if it is slow.
