Also with a fifth of your deck being instants and sorceries you should definitely include Sunforger! I count 12 valid targets for it.

Oh and I don't like Lightning Greaves in this deck. Ya it's so important to protect Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest but shroud is not good in this deck. You need to target Shu Yun in order to win most games and shroud does not let you do that. I would replace it with Open the Armory, that will let you fetch up Swiftfoot Boots, any other equipment or even something like Aqueous Form for the unblockable. If you find you like Sunforger, Open the Armory is good for finding that.

I am currently running Sunforger in my Shu Yun deck, there is not really anything that does the same thing to replace it with. That being said I don't like it all that much, it has not played well from my experience. I want to replace it with Time Spiral someday. One card I would recommend is Metallurgic Summonings, it has played well from my experience and it fits your budget.

Creature - Human Wizard
When Suncaster Mage enters the battlefield, search your library for a white instant card with converted mana cost 2 or less and cast that card without paying its mana cost. Then shuffle your library.
White doesn't get too much instant/sorcery recursion, so I figured I'd make a 1/2 Sunforger on a stick. 2 cmc or less, only white spells. It's still a pretty powerful effect so I made it and 0/1 to balance it. I hope.
BTW Catalog9000 how do you get those horizontal lines separating your paragraphs?
NEXT CHALLENGE: Make a version of the ____caster Mage.

ShreddedByCrows, so, here we go. I am swapping the following for the suggested, with playtest in mind. Banefire for Scroll Rack. Then, Mirari for Mistveil Plains. Followed by,Charmbreaker Devils for Madblind Mountain, as well as,Forbidden Orchard for Incendiary Command. Take note that this fixes the mana curve and land shortage. Finally, Repercussion comes back in replacing Warleader's Helix.
ShreddedByCrows, You were absolutely correct on Subterranean Tremors, however, as you put it, it does consume my artifacts. What I found out playtesting is this deck tends to durdle around looking for the right moments to play things. Unfortunately, this makes for casting the commander and keeping her safe extremely hard. In one situation a UG deck too card advantage and board state presence control with Roil Elemental. In this case, I barely won by Blasphemous Act copied by the Goggles.
Essentially, the deck has a lot of opportunity for improvement. One such is that it has a hard time dealing damage to flying creatures. The multiple Wheel of Fortune effects helps quite a bit. On my duties for this deck now include calculating the target worth of Sunforger. If there are less than five targets, I find that the card is an expensive tutor that attracts a lot of board hate. I have it in mind that the future replacement may well be a Lightning Greaves.

Warrior Creatures to Consider:
Devoted Crop-Mate like a weird Alesha
Hidden Dragonslayer decent removal
Ironclad Slayer if you are playing a lot of equipments
Malakir Cullblade gets bigger
Champion of the Flame if you go super heavy on the equipment
Garna, the Bloodflame save the creatures from a boardwipe? Not sure how it will do in action
Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs pillowfort and some bodies
Taurean Mauler -technically a warrior
Burnished Hart ramp and can be brought back by Alesha
Gisela, Blade of Goldnight -got reprinted in Master 25 so its cheaper and will get reprinted again in Commander anthology II but that one will be foil so not sure if that will affect price
Grenzo, Havoc Raiser goad is amazing and his second ability is nice if you have mana to spend
Equipment to Consider:
Sunforger one of the best equipments in these colors, fetch your removal
Kusari-Gama mini boardwipe if they block
Artifacts to Consider:
- Gilded Lotus just got reprinted so its cheaper now
- Fellwar Stone our play group usually has your colors
- Oketra's Monument cast a warrior, get a warrior
- Throne of the God-Pharaoh
- Mardu Ascendancy
- Dictate of the Twin Gods you have both gods in deck, so why not?
- Berserkers' Onslaught
- Gift of Immortality
- Behind the Scenes since some of your creatures have low-ish power, although might such with all the anthem effects you have
- Pain Magnification just a fun card
- Kindred Boon
- Chandra's Ignition -really great boardwipe for this deck, if zurgo has lifelink you will get that life and also anything that dies will give him counters. You could have zurgo, cast this, and then more than likely one shot a player
- Read the Bones
- Open the Armory
- Disrupt Decorum tapped out won't link this for some reason
Instants: (sticking with four or less Cmc for sunforger shenanigans)
- Rogue's Passage
- Sunhome, Fortress of the Legion
- Unclaimed Territory
- Path of Ancestry kinda pricey now tho
Mardu is great for control, so its best to have plenty of removal spells. I would not have Spinerock Knoll since it might be too slow. Windbrisk Heights might be better than Spinerock tho. Like what if you need to play that spell but can't get 7 damage off. Also, Graveblade Marauder seems too situational to leave an impact. When you start adding/removal stuff to the deck, make sure to keep it low cmc as you can since you don't have much in terms of ramp in these colors; be sure to keep as mana rocks as you can for the same reason.

lance4224130 Nice to hear it is working out! Maybe you could consider playing ore more land as your version is a bit more controlish than midrange, but it's something you have to decide after quite a few games I think. Anyway, I also recommend you Scroll Rack if you're running Land Tax. They synergize beautifully together.
For lands, good additions (as you play all the good fetchlands) would be Mistveil Plains for a plain (amazing card with the Sunforger here) and Madblind Mountain for a mountain. As they etb tapped, I don't know if it will slow too much your deck playing both of them, but it seems good. In my midrangy Boros EDH, also playing the Sunforger, I decided only to run the Mistveil, but in your version I kinda like the Madblind as well.Another crazy land for your deck strategy, a land that you will always love to have, is the Forbidden Orchard. It literally does insane things alongside your commander.
About the cards you changed now >> I wasn't a fan of all your enchantment removals, I think it's a bit too situational to run so many, the decklist feels a lot better in the actual statement. The infinite loop with the copy of the doll, the doll itself and the repercussion is quite crazy. I would have laughed so much. x)I think Repercussion is still a great card for this deck, I will keep it on the mainboard.
Some cards you could cut (that I personally don't like) are the Charmbreaker Devils (you pay 6 mana for a bad body with no immediate impact... meh, it's just too slow if you want to stay active >> I understand the argument that it could be good just after a board-clear when your opponents resources are diminishing, but it makes it just too situational and even in those rare situations he's far from being game-breaker), the Banefire (it only target one player - even if you duplicate it with the Mirari or something else, it's still meh.), the Incendiary Command (versatile but weak and slow, feels just bad), the Warleader's Helix (yeh, it can be good with the Sunforger, but otherwise it's a card I won't appreciate to see in my hand), the Mirari (it's slow and you already seem to have enough duplicating spells... not that I dislike it, it's a good card, but I think it's a bit overkill there seeing the rest of your decklist) and the Deflecting Palm (too situationnal in my opinion).
Here are a few suggestions :
A solid board-clear you could consider : Subterranean Tremors.
Nice control tool : Ghostly Prison
Kill option : Aetherflux Reservoir
Ramp tool (only if you make the choice to run more instants with X) : Braid of Fire
Mad token generator for even more targets and so even more healing : Genesis Chamber
Even madder chaotic token generator : Varchild's War-Riders
Cruel card : Burning Sands
Less cruel card but still cruel : Crusher Zendikon

Depending on your meta, it may be worth running a red/white instant sweeper instead that can be tutored with Sunforger?
And Scapegoat can protect from boardwipes.
