Congratulations for your deck! I like the idea of cloning stuff, and I am still trying to find a build that works. If I can give you a hint, prefer cards that can clone any creature on the field over the cards that can only clone your creatures (everyone should have a Consecrated Sphinx , right? Not only your opponent).

I don't feel like would help you much with cloning. The best (and maybe only) white card that refers to cloning is Mirrorweave .

If you look at https://edhrec.com/themes/clones, you will see that almost all clone effects are blue: Clone , Vizier of Many Faces , Gigantoplasm , Vesuvan Shapeshifter , Body Double , Mirror Image , Supplant Form , Blatant Thievery , Clone Legion , Mirror Match . If you want to copy spells aswell, Insidious Will , Swarm Intelligence and Spelltwine are there for you.

gives you Mirror Match , Dack's Duplicate , Dualcaster Mage , Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker , Protean Raider , Flameshadow Conjuring and Sunbird's Invocation .

gives you Evil Twin and all black tutors and removal.

gives you Altered Ego , Progenitor Mimic , Spitting Image and all of green ramp and removal. For me, it is the best color to splash on a blue clone deck, because it also allows the Biovisionary alternative win-condition.

As long as commander suggestions are concerned, here are some ideas:

Riku of Two Reflections is the go-to clone commander. He has all the relevant colors for cloning (), but he is crazy expensive at 20 dollars, so it might be good to consider other options:

You can have Keiga, the Tide Star as your commander. This way, you can clone him and let the copy Keiga die to the legend rule. When the Keiga copy dies, you can steal an opponent's creature, while still having the original Keiga.

You can have Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer as your commander. He is a win condition by himself, giving tokens haste and making all of them bigger. Red gives you a lot of token generators: Brass's Bounty , Flameshadow Conjuring , Storm the Vault  Flip among others. Imagine creating a token copy of a Kokusho, the Evening Star , then turn all your tokens into Kokusho, then sacrificing all them to the legend rule, then draining all your oponents for lethal. Great value!

You can have Tatyova, Benthic Druid as your commander. She doesn't refer to a clone strategy, but she gives a lot of card draw by just playing lands (your hand will always be filled). You can clone Rampaging Baloths and Avenger of Zendikar for a massive win. Also, you have access to all the blue-green clones and the Biovisionary + Rite of Replication combo.

If you want to use altogether, you might consider Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder or Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis . Yidris allows you to use Evil Twin and all the black removal. Yidris also increases the value you get from playing spells by cascading into other spells. // K&T, on the other hand, gives you card advantage and makes you less threatening while you build your board. White also gives you access to great boardwipes ( Austere Command ).

All in all, good luck in your deckbuilding and have fun!

Unless you're a little more specific, I'm not sure exactly how to help. What sort of commanders and decks and strategies to you already like?

I like Riku of Two Reflections , but I feel like the card draw and political nature of Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist seems more fun. I also feel like I don't really need the copy ability as I think I have enough Tims, though I could be wrong.

The best commander I've seen for a Tim-Deck (pingers) is Riku of Two Reflections but my experience is limited.

I think you should try out either Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind or Niv-Mizzet, Parun . Both tend to control the board until they can win with either Curiosity or Ophidian Eye . OG Niv is easier on a budget mana base, but paying more for new miv might be preferable for you if you're okay not turbo'ing him out and playing a slower game. Mizzix of the Izmagnus is also very combo-y if you're into Izzet. If you want to go Temur, Animar, Soul of Elements is typically build as a combo deck using Ancestral Statue to go infinite, and the popular Animorphs build is very budget friendly and lends itself well to the Pickles Lock combo of Brine Elemental + Vesuvan Shapeshifter . The Gates deck is a control deck that wins with your favorite one-card combo, Scapeshift . It's a one-trick pony, but if you're into it, I would build it with Child of Alara at the helm. Riku of Two Reflections might be for you if you just want all the value until you can find whatever wincon you like. Finally, if it's the rampy, storm bit you like about Nic Fit and Scapeshift, I love my Tatyova, Benthic Druid druid tribal deck. Chaining land ramp and drawing cards feels very stormy, even more so when going off with Gilt-Leaf Archdruid , Guardian Project , or Beast Whisperer with Seton, Krosan Protector , Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx , Stone-Seeder Hierophant , or Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip.

Riku of Two Reflections with green ramp and play almost all good wurms, with blue create copies and protect, witn red give haste and create copies with riku and other enchantment. Rhythm of the Wild such a nicve card for the deck. Progenitor Mimic , Bramble Sovereign , Cackling Counterpart and Flameshadow Conjuring are some ideas.

There's always Palinchron + Riku of Two Reflections / Deadeye Navigator / Phantasmal Image or Deadeye Navigator + Peregrine Drake / Great Whale . Not a 1-card combo, though, and you need 2 mana open (or 4 without Deadeye Navigator ). This does, however, help you convert Food Chain mana into regular mana.
