Big problem is the deck works really well in its current iteration. Its hard to remove cards that have helped you win games for cards you want to try out. fitting in Lab Maniac would mean I need a slightly larger draw package. Im leaning towards a bigger clone package for shenanigans including Sakashima the Impostor, Helm of the Host, Clone Legion, and Saheeli's Artistry. Also trying to make room for Archaeomancer. HELP ME !!!

Your list does look pretty decent. Shalai is illegal in this deck because of the green mana symbols.

Your land base is probably running too many tapped lands, although it might be ok with a control strategy. Sea of Clouds is a new untapped dual which slots in easily, probably better than Prairie Stream since you don't have that many basics. I would recommend replacing a couple of lands with artifact ramp like Thran Dynamo and Worn Powerstone. Chromatic Lantern works really well with your Caged Sun. Not a fan of Burnished Hart although it's better with flash from Raff. Dowsing Dagger  Flip is really good if you can flash it in before your turn so you know who doesn't have blockers. Sword of the Animist is also decent ramp. Marble Diamond and Sky Diamond will also work.

Definitely add in a Cyclonic Rift, arguably the most powerful spell in Commander.

Phyrexian Metamorph can be cast at instant speed and becomes whatever artifact or creature you need it to be. Sakashima the Impostor becomes an extra copy of one of your legends. Helm of the Host could be useful since you have so many legends, and Hammer of Nazahn is a great trick to grant indestructibility and free equip costs.

You might be able to benefit from As Foretold since you can flash in free spells on each of your opponents' turns.

Thank you very much for your suggestion, and even though it does take a lot of set up, I was staying away from 1 turn game endings. I have received criticism that some people prefer a quicker end to games rather than "grinding the gears". I've built the deck to be resilient and for actually playing magic the gathering but I can see where the the annoyances come from. Currently trying to find a spot for Sakashima the Impostor for more shenanigans.

Here's a list of what I could find.

Suppose I have a Storm Crow. I cast Sakashima the Impostor copying Storm Crow, leaving me with a 1/2 Flying Legendary creature named Sakashima the Impostor.

I cast Helm of the Host, equip it to Sakashima, and enter combat. I have the token copy Grizzly Bears (if possible). What are its characteristics?

Any reason you don't run Sakashima the Impostor or other shapeshifters like Lazav, Dimir Mastermind?

I really wouldn't say I have very few. AEtherling, Arcanis the Omnipotent, Ovinomancer, Sakashima the Impostor and Illusionist's Stratagem all serve that purpose, to name just a few. In addition, I have a lot of defensive tools which don't remove Mairsil from play, which is what why want in case I have a Grimoire of the Dead on him for example (because I'd lose the counters). I feel like it's easy to overload on effects like those because it would also drain your hand quite significantly. Another thing that worries me is that cards like the Closet and Navigator can't be exiled by Mairsil (or at least have abilities copied), which means they'd just be dead cards after they have been removed.

As I said to Neth, I'll have to give this list a few runs before I decide where it needs work. At that point I might return to some of your suggestions.

Ravnica is love, Ravnica is life. Awesome list :)

Have you considered Sakashima the Impostor? It allows you to copy Lazav for double the fun. Just make sure you don't change them into the same creature afterwards :D
