Hi! I'm relatively new to this aikido style of control/pillow fort. I've already learned a bit from everyone's comments already, so thank you guys! :)

I've made a list of cards that I imagine fits the archetype but that I haven't seen in most lists. I would really appreciate if i could get your experienced opinions on them. Thank you all in advance :)

Oblation / Chaos Warp - Removal spells that double up as a way to rescue your own permanents. Also sweetens the pill for your opponent when you remove their things - at least they get something.

Spectral Grasp - Prevents a creature from attacking you like the Vows do, but unlike the Vows, Spectral Grasp also makes them unable to block your creatures.

Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor - Gives your opponents 1/1s that can't attack you or block,incentivizing them to hit each other with them. When Varchild eventually bites the dust you even get all the survivor tokens that have, well, survived.

Scheming Symmetry - A cheap Imperial Seal that lets you cooperate with an opponent.

Crown of Doom - Incentivizes your opponents to attack each other and can't be returned to you.

Mathas, Fiend Seeker - Rewards you and your opponents for killing creatures that don't belong to you.

Flash Conscription - Seems to fit aikido quite nicely if I've come to understand the term correctly. Steals an opponent's creature at instant speed to block, and it even gets a lifelink-effect if you payed white. Does cost 6 mana though...

Master Warcraft - Its uses include making opponents' creatures kill each other, assuring your survival one combat step if an opponent is threatening and letting your creatures slip past clogged up boards for lethal damage.

Disharmony - Steals an attacking creature to let you block with it.

Jabari's Influence - Gain permanent control of a creature that attacked you. Its drawbacks is that it costs 5 and only works on nonblack and nonartifact creatures which limits its uses, in addition to shrinking its power slightly. Still feels pretty on theme.

Soul Snare - Similar to Gossamer Chains in the way that you make it clear for your opponents that attacking someone else is in their best interest.

Boros Fury-Shield - A narrower Deflecting Palm that costs 1 more mana. Still fits the theme nicely I think.

Encircling Fissure - One sided fog. Can punish an opponent for being overly aggressive with their creatures. Can also help out an opponent in a pinch to make them owe you a favour later on.

Treacherous Urge - Can steal an opponent's creature from their hand and hit them with it. It's also a instant, so you can use it in response to someone attacking you.

Mindclaw Shaman - Quite similar to Treacherous Urge , but hits instants and sorceries instead.

Coveted Jewel - Provides you or the one who steals it from you with ramp and cards. Everyone wants in on that good stuff, right? I imagine that this could get tossed around a bit, but maybe 6 mana is a bit much, even if you get 3 of them back right away...

I was playing 1v1, Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge for me (act of treason.dec) vs Karametra, God of Harvests (big fatties).

My opponent is ramping like crazy, I'm just trying to stay ahead. He's got his commander and a handful of mana dorks, I've got a sol ring and a few random lands. Oh, and a Goblin Bombardment. I top deck Dark Ritual and use it to cast Treacherous Urge. Low and behold, Kozilek, Butcher of Truth.

It hurts and slows him down a bit, but not enough. A few little things back and forth, he drops his commander, I drop mine (not good of the exile). He's got a ton of mana now and Parallel Lives. I've got not much still, but I'm at a little less then twice his life total.

He casts Storm Herd. Its a decent amount of flyers but with Parallel Lives? Not good.

Except. I have a Reverberate.

Now we both have an army, but its a stalemate, who's gonna swing first?

No one, I'm looking over my board and remember Goblin Bombardment. My opponent dies with a few dozen pegasus thrown at his face.

Okay, let's get some Jedi Caves and Murky monsters in here. Jorubai Murk Lurkers are definitely in the swamps of Dagobah, and though it's cold, I'm pretty sure the Ice Cave is a great place to send a training Jedi to face their fears. Rhystic Cave can help with of color sources on a budget and can put a crimp in the plans of someone who tapped out to play a spell to end the game when you have the Ice Cave out.

I am still confused as to how Steal/Clone has anything to do with the swamp planet of Dagobah, but let's look at some sweet cloning cards. Altered Ego, Stunt Double, Clever Impersonator, Mirror Match, Mirror Mockery, Spitting Image, and Stolen Identity all come to mind for varying degrees of cloning. I really like the Mirror cards because they directly oppose your opponents in an interesting fashion, discourage attacking you, and might let you actually use your opponent's ETB triggers if they're not careful.

For stealing, we've got Aethersnatch for spells, Chamber of Manipulation, Dominate, Domineering Will, Helm of Possession, Overtaker, Rags / Riches, Reins of Power. Thalakos Deceiver, Tolarian Entrancer, Treacherous Urge, Willbreaker, and Soul Seizer  Flip to get at their creatures.

For the list now, I'd actually just purge everything over $5 to get a better sense of what you actually want in the deck, drop most of the reanimation right now since you're focusing more on cloning and stealing rather than reanimating, you can see about stealing creatures out of graveyards later. Deadeye Navigator just needs to go as well, since that card is just too good and will probably get you killed with little to no actual benefit.

If you still want to run Villainous Wealth get some of the best, cheapest ramp G and B have to offer like Zendikar Resurgent, Myriad Landscape, Blighted Woodland, and the ilk since that won't break your budget like some of the alternatives. Skirge Familiar can turn excess cards into mana, which can make your Tasigur cheaper too, and there are always the U free spells which you can bounce if you put bouncers in the deck) without having to fork out the cash for Palinchron

Another cool way to trim down your budget is to just not run some of the typical staples. Like, completely forget about Sol Ring and Lightning Greaves they're just not going to be worth the effort like Fellwar Stone, Corrupted Grafstone, or even, as much as I dislike them personally, Signets in the colors you need most.

Also, do be careful with Notion Thief, and this goes with other player's stolen creatures too, you'll need to make sure to have some sac outlets. Evolutionary Leap, High Market, any number of black creatures that have that as a cost, would be worth it if they have an effect that you can leverage into usability.

So...all in all, I know that's a lot, but hope it helps even a little bit.
