Phenax was one of my first EDH decks, love him to death. Great list!
I would consider all the cards with "inspired". I see you have Macar, but there are more that work really well in this deck. IMO the best ones you don't have are Arbiter of the Ideal, Daring Thief, Disciple of Deceit, and Siren of the Silent Song.
Also Thassa's Oracle... Early game it's just good filtering + a decent body for Phenax, while late game you can win out of the blue. In my most recent game with Phenax I had a consuming aberration out with nothing else on board. I had already milled roughly 20 cards from each opponent. At endstep, I milled an opponent for 60. I untap with an 80/80 consuming aberration, opponents all tapped out. I mill myself for 80... Confused looks... I cycle Vizier of Tumbling Sands, untap the aberration, mill myself again. Cast Thassa's Oracle for the win, great fun!

Oh and one more that I think is kind of under appreciated is Siren of the Silent Song . Between Phenax and untapping shenanigans from Pemmin's Aura and Freed from the Real (other good cards include Puppet Strings , Staff of Domination , and Umbral Mantle - the latter having the added benefit of increasing Toughness) and the amount of work Siren can do with milling and discarding is pretty incredible.

Thank you Rabid_Wombat for commenting and for the link to your deck.
I am looking to include Siren of the Silent Song and Vizier of the Scorpion , so please tell me which creatures specifically you would cut and why. I would aim for 37 creatures total, which would allow mw to run Syphon Flesh and Drown in the Loch .
Living Death is a great card, but this deck is focused on building a token army, not to mention several effects that exile creatures from my graveyard, so it feels somewhat counterproductive in this context.

Thanks for the suggestions, gingerthewritingdog! I've considered adding Siren of the Silent Song and Ashiok, Dream Render , but don't think it would fit like I'd want them to. The other two, however, I'm going to do some research on. Would you elaborate on why I should cut the walls. These are cheap, high toughness cards that I can not only use to block (while building my board), but also mill my opponent. Especially, when I can use other cards to untap them.

Siren of the Silent Song is a favorite of mine. Also, no Empty the Pits , Syphon Flesh , Vizier of the Scorpion , or Moan of the Unhallowed ? Gotta go wide! I also recommend Stitcher's Supplier , Returned Reveler , and Crow of Dark Tidings . Stocking the graveyard is a good way to spend an early turn, so you can start getting value right away when TSG hits the board, and the mediocre bodies don't matter later, since they can come back as 4/4's. I also recommend Mire Triton and Tymaret Calls the Dead when Theros Beyond Death comes out.

- Arbiter of the Ideal - free stuff in Phenax.
- Daring Thief gives you a Switcheroo every turn.
- Pain Seer and Siren of the Silent Song are similar.
- King Macar, the Gold-Cursed lets you exile every turn.

Silent Arbiter can prevent you from dying.
Scheming Symmetry becomes a one-sided tutor when you mill your opponent's card away.
