I really like the concept of the deck, however I think that you have a lot of cards which don't add much value to the strategy.

For cards you could easily cut:

Iona, Shield of Emeria, Cloudshift, Essence Flux, Graceful Adept, Sen Triplets, Greed, Leyline of Anticipation, Near-Death Experience, Paradox Haze, Bond of Agony, Enduring Ideal, Sanguimancy, Temporal Extortion, Conjurer's Closet, Phyrexian Processor, Spellbook, Vedalken Orrery and Carrion Howler. You also have too many lands, you could easily go down to 36 and be fine.

As for cards I would add to the deck:

And if you're concerned about discarding to handsize, Reliquary Tower and Library of Leng between the two should be enough. But for the most part you don't really card, just sculpt your best 7 and go from there.

Hopefully this'll help streamline the deck.

^^^ more lands.

Also you don't have a lot of good aura targets. Ajani's Chosen is great as a token producer and gives you the option of going wide. Card: Cephalid Constable is totally insane. Cold-Eyed Selkie is also pretty insane. Eidolon of Countless Battles get gigantic very quickly. Invisible Stalker is hexproof and unblockable, and need I say more? Kor Spiritdancer is a great draw engine and also gets very large, very quickly. Rafiq of the Many is a legendary voltron target, literally and metaphorically.

You're also missing some great enchantments and synergies. Argothian Enchantress, Herald of the Pantheon, Kestia, the Cultivator, Sigil of the Empty Throne, Propaganda, Aether Tunnel, Aqueous Form, Banishing Light, Bear Umbra, Ethereal Armor, Grasp of Fate, Mirari's Wake, Rhystic Study, Song of the Dryads, Spirit Mantle,

Nice deck, your construction reminds me of my first version which was more Enchantress-draw based. Keep in mind that in those days not all cards in your deck where available. You can find that deck over here: [Rafiq 1.0] Enchantress Draw

Enchantments and Auras

There are a few enchantments i'd like to mention which I tried in my decks aswell and did not make it to the final cut (or at least the deck how I play it nowadays).

Ancestral Mask and Ethereal Armor I think these cards are too much dependent on having other enchantments on the board. And it does not give an 'unblockable' bonus for instance flying or trample.

Armadillo Cloak I used to run this and also Unflinching Courage but I dropped them because in my playgroup people tend to scoop when you strike them lethal so you don't get the advantage of the lifelink.

I think you should replace these cards with cards who give better 'unblockable' bonus for instance Infiltrator's Magemark or Spirit Mantle who have a low CMC. Or maybe Drake Umbra which cost more but also gives better bonus.

Creatures

Further your creature base. I also have tried cards like Herald of the Pantheon but I rather use a general ramp card than an card that only affects your enchantments. Same for Kor Spiritdancer who only triggers on auras. I would consider Knight Exemplar and Umbra Mystic who both help protecting your Commander.

Also I am not a fan of the Legendary-Enchantment Creatures. Bestow cost are mainly too high to cast and I think there are better options available. But if you want to stick to that theme that's okay and then you might consider Thassa, God of the Sea.

Planeswalkers

I see no planeswalkers in your deck and Bant has a few which really juice this deck up. One I am allready playing myself and the other one is on my wants-list. I suggest to try Tamiyo, Field Researcher and Estrid, the Masked they can be smashing. And if you are adding planeswalkers Shalai, Voice of Plenty might be a nice add.

Surprise, Surprise

You really need to add this one: Hunter's Insight this is a crazy card drawer in your deck. And I like cards like: Vines of Vastwood, Invigorate and Might of the Nephilim for the surprise (aka lethal) hit. They are cheap to cast and speed up the game.

Well this is all for now. I might review your deck later again. Maybe you can review mine in the latest version: [Rafiq 2.0] To Serve & Protect [cEDH]

If you want more offense, I have two suggestions: unblockability and hexproof. Aether Tunnel and Infiltrator's Magemark are great. But what really takes the cake here is Spirit Mantle. It is unblockable, but also dodges creature abilities. For hexproof, I have three suggestions: Alpha Authority, Shielding Plax, and the best of the three, Canopy Cover.

And if you're dabbling in group hug to look unassuming, Dictate of Kruphix and Rites of Flourishing are great.

I love the enchantment focus on Rafiq! i have a rafiq deck that is about half equipment and half auras.

Crawlspace and Silent Arbiter are great adds, and just gives redundancy to effects like the Dueling Grounds you already have.

Cathedral of War is exalted on a land!

Bear Umbra was recently reprinted in the Adaptive Enchantment deck for Commander 18, and is really good, even at its price tag. Spirit Mantle give pro creatures, making him unblockable.

Ethercaste Knight is a 2 cmc exalted creature, helps get rafiq buffed a bit quicker.

I would look at adding more dorks like Avacyn's Pilgrim for ramp and helps give value to Sublime Archangel and/or more rocks. Adding a few draw spells as well, like Brainstorm/Anticipate and Harmonize/Concentrate are great for refilling your hand, or sifting through your deck a bit. Sage's Reverie and Snake Umbra help buff rafiq, as well as draw! (snake umbra will give 2 draws when attacking alone and is unblocked! woo double strike!)

im sure youll get this comment, but Prophet of Kruphix is banned in edh, so just be aware if you try to bring it to an LGS.

Good luck smashing face!

Looks pretty neat! Some substitutions I recommend considering are Bonesplitter for Darksteel Axe, Godless Shrine for Isolated Chapel or other lands, and Spirit Mantle/Unquestioned Authority for Knight's Pledge. Also, History of Benalia would be insane in this deck.

Nice deck.

I do feel like it needs a few finishing touches like better haste enablers such as Need for Speed, Mass Hysteria, Generator Servant, or Ashling's Prerogative. I'd also try to find room for a few evasive auras like Aqueous Form, Steel of the Godhead, or Spirit Mantle. And a few great mana rocks to consider... Pentad Prism (ramps 2 colored mana on a 2 mana rock) and Chrome Mox.

Feel free to check out my list for ideas. Narset, American Beauty

Also, I don't like main deck Leyline of Sanctity or Madcap Skills. I think it would be best to run some combination of Hyena Umbra and/or Spirit Mantle
