Speaking of using their own stuff against them, you could also consider Spelljack, Aethersnatch, Memory Plunder, Spelltwine and Mindclaw Shaman.

Hey DrkNinja,

it's a bit ironic to assemble the Avengers (aka The Gatewatch) to help to construct a Bolas-deck, but nevertheless here are my ideas:

First of all, I would discard :) the whole Nekusar-wheel-theme. Nekusar, the Mindrazer decks just do it better anyways and playing Wheel of Fortune, Reforge the Soul, Jace's Archivist or Windfall in your deck has some drawbacks. While they're great to enable your plan of using the opponents' graveyards, your decks' cmc is not low enough to exploit those cards. Additionally, your opponents would get a significant amount of cards out of it, too, which also undermines the whole handcontrol theme of your deck: What's the matter of making them discard through Nicol Bolas, the Ravager  Flip, when you're helping them to refill their hands the next turn? Cards like Megrim, Liliana's Caress or Fell Specter would have to go as well because they're only effective with the aforementioned cards.

So my proposal is to focus on discard and control. Cards like Painful Quandary, The Eldest Reborn, Waste Not, Oppression and Chains of Mephistopheles fit well and should stay. You could add Skull Rend or Liliana's Specter. You could also add cards that let your commander re-enter the battlefield like Ghostly Flicker. Some ninjas like Silent-Blade Oni or Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni do not only fit your theme but let you cast your commander again.

To get more information about your opponents' hands you could play Telepathy or Glasses of Urza. I usually go with Glasses of Urza alongside Trinket Mage.

You have to strengthen your control over the graveyards when you're making people discard. The Scarab God is already good here. But you need some more graveyard-hate like Relic of Progenitus or Phyrexian Furnace which give you a bit of a choice what to exile. Don't play Leyline of the Void in here.

I'd also add Solemn Simulacrum like multimedia proposed.

So far I mentioned 8 cards which should be cut, so here are 22 more: Kess, Dissident Mage, Nightveil Specter, Mind's Dilation, Omniscience, Torment of Hailfire, Disrupt Decorum, Entreat the Dead, Anvil of Bogardan, Go for the Throat, Blasphemous Act, Stunning Reversal, Thrilling Encore, Leyline of Anticipation (most of the permanents don't have to be played at instant speed. Casting leyline is just doing nothing for the turn), Bloodchief Ascension, Countersquall, Desertion, Preordain, Thoughtseize, Library of Leng, Disciple of Bolas, Hour of Devastation, Tormenting Voice.

That's all for now. Good luck with your deck!

Hi, Carnival of Souls might be good in here, because black is your main color. It can create pretty explosive starts in combination with your commander!

@RedMan929: Thanks, I didn't know this card - looks like great tech!

10000 years ago I played a Brago deck which naturally had some cards in it, that would fit Aminatou, the Fateshifter very well: Reality Acid, Ancestral Knowledge kind of interacts with her first and her second ability, Tezzeret the Seeker to use his -x multiple times, Thought Prison and Exclusion Ritual are pretty cool, Palinchron or Treachery, Scrivener, Gilded Drake.
