Confirm Suspicions might be a good opportunity to not only present some control, but get three Artifact Tokens down on the field as well. Trail of Evidence only combos out with about 14 cards in this deck, and would be better in a more nonpermanent version of this deck. Still, you get a bit of sustained token generation that also helps draw power. Could help with a possible Mechanized Production win.

Speaking of making nice token copies, how about Feldon of the Third Path and Flameshadow Conjuring?

This one is a curveball, but what about Deceiver of Form? You can resolve his ability before Brudiclad's to make your board, creature tokens included, copies of whatever you have on topdeck, then resolve Brudiclad's ability to make your noncreature tokens copies of that card too.

One other card to consider is Blade of Selves. The Myriad token copies coming in to play should trigger Arcades' draw trigger, not bad if you want to draw some extra cards.

Conjurer's Closet can also re-trigger Arcades's draw and any other ETB effects, and flicker an attacker into a blocker at end step. Edit: On a second look, the closet might be weak for this deck. Very few of your creatures have ETB abilities that can be exploited, essentially all this does for you is give you an untap and a draw trigger at your end step.

What about Chord of Calling to sneak Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive in on the declare attackers step? Or someone else's end step if you want to save the mana for the turn you go all out.

Aligned Hedron Network is a niche, global O-Ring that has the ability of not pissing off everyone at the table. Might be good if you have one or two Zoo players at the table that the low-power token decks won't mind you neutering.

You mentioned that there are a lot of token decks in your pod. For that, I recommend Suture Priest. It gives you a bit of lifegain from your creatures hitting the battlefield, and also gives you some defense against opposing token decks. Sure, they can make 40 1/1 Saprolings, as long as they don't mind losing 40 life for them. (:

How about Baneful Omen? It's odd, and can really rack up the damage with this deck.

Hidden Retreat can help you toss stuff on top of your deck.

How about casting some extra turns for free, too? Consider Nexus of Fate, Temporal Trespass, and Time Warp.

Scroll Rack is a super useful card for manipulating topdeck with this build. You might want to consider it.

You're quite welcome Break3r, that is high praise! Yeah, I tried to really wrap the deck around Aminatou's first ability when I built her, and then filled it out with better replacement cards as I did more research and got more suggestions. Check out the Maybeboard if you're looking for other Top Deck Matters ideas, a lot of the ones I included initially got moved there to make room for combo pieces, tutors, and new spoiled cards.

I'm so glad to see how successful this deck has become on TappedOut! I'd like to think my witty name helped. :D

Really though, congratulations on such a tight build. I'd +1 you again if I could, lol.

@Wurmspiralmaschine14: Your username makes me think of Wurmcoil Engine. (: That aside, Gate to the AEther gives my opponents the first crack at getting cool stuff, and can easily be destroyed/exiled before the order gets back around to me. Timesifter, on the other hand... How did I miss this card during construction?! Holy fuck, that's a strong ability for this deck.

@BlackyMTG: All of those suggestions are great! I can see Teferi's Protection being hilarious cast in response to Aminatou's ult. I hadn't added Yennett or Aminatou's Augury yet because they were spoiled just before the weekend, and I knew I would be too busy to remove cards to make room. xD But I made room now. Thanks for the recommendations!

@Asder: You're absolutely right, and I actually own a copy of him, too! He's in my Ertai deck, but I've been meaning to deconstruct that anyways. I made room for him in here, removing the other Jace for him.
