Creature — Human Rogue
When Whirler Rogue enters the battlefield, create two 1/1 colorless Thopter artifact creature tokens with flying.
Tap two untapped artifacts you control: Target creature can't be blocked this turn.

Tempest Caller can let you tap out an opponent's army for the finishing blow.

In an equipment based voltron deck, I've found Whirler Rogue is really great. You can tap equipment already on your commander without any loss to make him unable to be blocked, meaning those thopters can even just be chump blockers if needed.

If you want more wincons via blinking (outside of stax, anyway), you'll need effects that generate creatures. Some of them are Myr Battlesphere , Genesis Chamber , Drowner of Hope , Whirler Rogue , and Geist-Honored Monk . Several of these cards are good not just because they make tokens, but because they also are useful beyond their ability to just make tokens. Brago gives you an incredible amount of mana and draw in a single turn, so his ability to produce a lethal amount of creatures shouldn't be underestimated.

Thank you so much ChrisHansonBiomancin! What a great feedback.
Whirler Rogue also seems like a good idea, not too strong, but a good way to go, i just need the tokens.

This looks like a fun deck, I always love me some Hornets. My biggest recommendation would probably be to add in more token-producing cards, starting with 2 more Wingmate Roc, since right now you only have 8 cards that do so versus 19 cards that depend on having those token-producers to combo with and are pretty dead cards otherwise. Unfortunately 3 and 4-drop options look pretty thin but one idea is Whirler Rogue . If you don't mind being a little crowded at 5-drop there are several good options, such as Angel of Invention , Biogenic Ooze , Scion of Vitu-Ghazi , and Tolsimir, Friend to Wolves .
You also might want a few more mana dorks in order to speed things up, especially if you have a lot of 5 drops so you can hit them consistently on turn 3-4. I'm thinking 8 would be a good number given your curve.

Nillstan lol ikr?
This deck has at least lost Veil of Summer
There aren't enough Nexus decks being played since then for me to get an updated version.
I remember you from days of yore.
I dropped out of the competitive Standard scene and have just mucked around with Planeswalker decks with my hubby and friends. It's a relaxed way of playing with lots of variety.
I just grabbed the Oko deck. I know it's not THE Oko, but I'm interested to see how Simic fares, nonetheless.
Pioneer has interested me. Going to play my first tournament next week with a deck that might do OK.
It is also mono-blue.
I haven't had to do much to make it Pioneer, as it was already Frontier legal. I did have to add three Walking Ballista , though. Ouch.

There are plenty of other game-winning combos you can put in this deck, for sure.
There's the Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter combo which only costs around $15 right now and can win with the Aetherflux Reservoir , Grapeshot , or Brain Freeze cards you already have in your deck.
For around $15, you could also add the Ashnod's Altar + Nim Deathmantle combo to generate infinite mana. You'd need to add a creature who makes more than 1 token on ETB, like Maverick Thopterist , Myr Battlesphere , and Whirler Rogue , which are possibly solid adds regardless of combo efficacy.
If you're looking for something cheaper, there's always Ghostly Flicker + Naru Meha, Master Wizard and a card with a game-winning ETB like Viashino Pyromancer , Halimar Excavator , or Sunscorched Desert . You can get all of these cards for under $2 total.
Also Dualcaster Mage + Twinflame to make infinite creatures with haste and swing to win, still super cheap. Dualcaster also can be used in place of Naru Meha above.

Have you thought about Hardened Scales ? It seems like a better way to consistently add more counters to your creatures if that’s what you’re going for, and in the same vein Pir, Imaginative Rascal helps. Personally I’d put them in over one-shot effects like Hunting Triad . Also, Contagion Engine and Doubling Season are both very good value engines here, with the engine providing the added bonus of eventually removing opponent’s creatures. On top of that you can proliferate experience counters, so things like Karn's Bastion could be very potent. Personally, I think that Spawnwrithe , Whirler Rogue and Patagia Viper could easily be replaced by these effects. Also, have you considered running Chain of Vapor instead of or alongside Sidisi's Faithful ? It gives you the added benefit of permanent bounce and possibly putting your opponents a land behind if they choose to retaliate. Finally, Birds of Paradise could definitely replace Arbor Elf because you aren’t running things like Utopia Sprawl , so the color fixing and flying creature far outweigh the elf creature type for Priest of Titania . Sorry for the long message, just got a lot of ideas all at once. Good luck in the league, I’m playing Kami of the Crescent Moon as of now!
