+1 for the Izzet Guildmage/Training Grounds combo you snuck in there ;)

I don't like Toothy, Imaginary Friend, Ravenous Slime, Loyal Unicorn, Dismantling Blow because they're all kind of off-theme and not that powerful without more synergy.

Eidolon of Rhetoric seems a bit too techy, even with the enchantment creature tag.

Training Grounds doesn't combo with bestow.

Myth Unbound - I don't think this is very good without Partner commanders.

I'd consider:

Bident of Thassa, since it's a mostly better Coastal Piracy.

Satyr Enchanter, Eidolon of Countless Battles, Sage's Reverie, Silhana Ledgewalker, Indrik Umbra

Training Grounds doesn't seem to have much synergy in this deck. The only activated ability I can see fully benefitting from the cost-reduction is that of Cemetery Reaper. You have a couple of others that will be reduced by . You might consider another cheap mana rock at that point. You might be served far better by just being able to cast more spells.

You've got a great list here :) If you'd like, feel free to see if my list gives you any ideas. Mine's more of a budget build, save for a few expensive cards I happened to have. Drove of the Lich Queen

You have heartstone in there. Why not also include the enchantment Training grounds?Training Grounds

Speaking of copying abilities, don't forget about Strionic Resonator either; apart from Varina's looting/life gain it also works with Gary, the Delver, Sheoldred, Zidizi, Scab. God's lifeloss/scry, the Throne aaaaaand Covenant's ETB.

Also, Training Grounds might be worth it since it works with Varina and five other creatures (although half of those only get a discount of ).

As far as commanders go, that really depends on how janky you want to get. I'm personally tackling a Kaho, Minamo Historian deck. This card basically lets you tutor 3 cards into a 'pocket exile' space that works like a second hand. You then cast these cards normally by activating Kaho's ability.

Ertai, Wizard Adept is another great option. Cards like Training Grounds makes it a formidable (and annoying) commander.

I think Heartstone and Training Grounds are musts in Memnarch decks.
