Sigil of Distinction Discussion

In this deck, you should support the equipment-Voltron strategy more. In order to swarm out, you need to protect Khemba and equip a lot of stuff onto her. Don't use other effects to produce tokens.
As far as lands go, 35 are enough. So I'd cut 3 plains and Karoo (it messes up your turn 2).
As for cuts in the creatures dept, I'd cut Platinum Angel (not needed wincon, nor reliable unless you lock the game, but at that point you've won anyways), Ajani's Pridemate , Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit , Armory Automaton , Auriok Steelshaper , Hero of Bladehold , Imposing Sovereign , Leonin Arbiter , Magus of the Moat , Thraben Doomsayer , Frontline Medic , Toolcraft Exemplar , Wall of Reverence , Relic Seeker (slow).
As far as equipments and stuff, I'd cut Marble Diamond (since your average CMC isn't that high and most of your spells are colourless), Moonsilver Spear , Sigil of Distinction , Skeleton Key , Ring of Thune , Mask of Memory .
ADD Anointed Procession ! As a good boardwipe for a finisher, I suggest Winds of Abandon . I suggest also Sun Titan , Bastion Protector , Balan, Wandering Knight as good lategame creatures. I suggest Kusari-Gama , Infiltration Lens , Trailblazer's Boots , Fireshrieker , Sword of Vengeance , Hammer of Nazahn , Argentum Armor , Chariot of Victory , Whispersilk Cloak as better equipments with respect to some of the ones I didn't mention for cutting.
Keep up the good work!

If you're still making considerations, I would look at Ovinize instead of Turn to Frog . Both are instant speed, but one makes the creature a 0/1 while the other is a 1/1. This could make a difference if the creature you want to steal is equipped or enchanted.
If you do go this route, I would also recommend do-nothing artifacts to swap like Darksteel Relic , Sigil of Distinction , or Sphere of the Suns . Also Master of Waves will let you swap a 1/0 elemental to your opponent that will die as soon as you give it to them, and Bronze Bombshell will explode for 7 damage while you keep their creature.

This looks like an interesting shell, however it could probably be made more efficient. As an example, why play a 5 mana artifact Cauldron of Souls when a 2 mana instant can perform the same trick Cauldron Haze. Another suggestion I have is Trinket Mage, which can fetch Walking Ballista, essentially giving you another way to pull out one of your win-cons. If you use the Mage then Sigil of Distinction also becomes a useful alt-win-con.
You also seem to be missing two obvious artifacts in the form of Coretapper and Energy Chamber, with perhaps a 3rd for card draw in Culling Dais. There is also the land Llanowar Reborn, which I think would be a better fit in your deck than Burst of Strength, the graft mechanic itself might be a good fit in general. Other cards to consider include Zameck Guildmage, Fate Transfer and Bioshift.
I played during tempest, where the spikes were first introduced and while they are cool, they were never inherently powerful, bar the surprise Spike Cannibal, which isn't modern legal. I realise I've thrown up a lot of cards and I wouldn't expect you to try and include them all, but hopefully this helps you improve your brew.

Personally, I'd drop the Sigil of Distinction and Spellbook in favor of Impact Tremors. Just makes more sense than an Artifact that nulls itself out over time, or even an unlimited had that you really don't want to be trading cards out of the way this deck allows.

Looking at your commander, I feel like Spidersilk Net, Sigil of Distinction, Paradise Mantle, Kite Shield, Cathar's Shield, and Bone Saw should pretty much be auto-inclusions along the lines of Accorder's Shield. They're all pretty weak, but as long as your commander is in play they replace themselves for free, so it's like getting to play a thinner deck with occasional fringe benefits. Most of them are pretty cheap to buy as well.

Looks like a great start ahve a +1.
Here's my two cents:
Some goodstuffs: Angelic Destiny, Basilisk Collar, Captain's Claws, Empyrial Plate, Fireshrieker, Masterwork of Ingenuity, Sigil of Distinction, Umezawa's Jitte, Blackblade Reforged, Brass Squire, and Vulshok Battlemaster, Silver-Inlaid Dagger

- Cradle of Vitality seems incredible here, given the lifelink from Brion.
- Sunbond is a slightly weaker but still good
- Well of Lost Dreams will keep your hand full for the same reason.
- Stalking Vengeance combos well with Brion, as well as punishes people who might try to wrath your board.
- Sigil of Distinction makes a nice reusable buff for multiple Brion flings
- Zealous Conscripts seems like an auto-include
You'll almost certainly want to play some Wrath of God style board clears, since you will often be clearing your own board with Brion. Good options besides the aforementioned wrath:
There are some other good red staples to consider that are on theme with the deck:
