Take Out: - Merciless Eviction exiles so that will not trigger our boy, Nev.
Bontu the Glorified really doesn't seem that good. You dont have a lot of creatures to sack. Sure you could get a bunch from Nev. Its too many conditions needed for Bontu.
Winds of Abandon for the same reasoning as Merciless Eviction
Mnemonic Deluge is so much mana and you do not even really have any good targets for it. It wont get you an overloaded rift, it can target a board clear but you dont need to do that multiple times
Court of Grace seems slow and you will almost never be the monarch probably.
Avacyn, Angel of Hope could be really good so as to keep all of your stuff
Faith's Reward is good. Lets you get the death triggers on stuff and then you can get all of your stuff back
Second Sunrise is also good but helps everyone. If you manage to wipe the board, second sunrise, and then wipe the board again, THEN play Nev or if you had Blood Artist out, that's meta. Its a lot of mana to do all this so maybe not on the Sunrise.
Rise of the Dark Realms could be the SAUCE
Liliana, Dreadhorde General aint bad if you are able to board wipe to help protect her and draw all those cards
Leyline of Anticipation could be nice if you need more flash for board clears but this is meh in the deck. Your instant speed stuff is your spot removal or counters!
Rout is a built in flash board clear
Land Tax is good since you are in non-ramp colors. You can get the lands you will need since you might blow up your own mana rocks sometimes
Talismans are good but could get blown up so up to you
Gift of Immortality on Nev is banana town
Generous Gift instead of a spell that exiles like Utter End. This one destroys

I just recently built a black and white deck with a very different approach, so comparing that with your deck will not help much, but..
I compared a lot of black and white options while building the deck.
In doing so, I found that one of the main difficulties in configuring a black and white deck is maintaining focus.
The way I see your deck, you have 2 copies of Piper of the Swarm who interacts with rats, but other then the tokens generated by the piper, there are no rats. That way your piper fills in a 2 drop slot, but is in a vacuum.
8 of 24 lands enter the field tapped.
With Elspeth you are well on your way to a deck that could either:
Go heavy on causing havoc by sacrificing those created human soldier tokens or...
Find cards that interact with your human soldier tokens and rebuild this into a white weenie deck alltogether. Given that you already have Shatter the Sky in there, going for a human soldier token generator with Shatter the Sky and Swords to Plowshares to keep your opponents boardstate miserable, then add some Disenchant and Blinding Light (not sure if that is legal in modern, but there ought to be a valid alternative) to eventually play Avacyn, Angel of Hope

TriusMalarky - haha thanks!! Yeah, I'm basically just retooling the whole Karador deck to make it more fun for everyone. I removed all the hate bears (besides Teeg) and all the tutors so far, along with Hulk and Boonweaver + Pattern Rebirth/Academy Rector.
I took whatqwerty advice and added Spore Frog and Caustic Caterpillar. I'm also basically going more of an Toolbox/Reanimator route adding in some creatures to win through combat and that are powerful. Kokusho, the Evening Star, Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Craterhoof Behemoth, Massacre Wurm, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, Luminous Broodmoth, Razaketh, the Foulblooded, etc.
Just going to try making some of those updates for now - still trying to construct the deck a different way.
But I appreciate all the feedback! I'm open to anymore suggestions all :)

wrath tribal is definitely a distinct and separate archetype which I have encountered before (not just pieces of deck tech), the most obvious commander being Avacyn, Angel of Hope and now Nevinyrral, Urborg Tyrant. These sorts of deck archetypes are what I was referring to (it's even listed separately here.
legendofa as I said, it's admittedly a little niche, which is why I don't blame you for not adding it. But it is a theme that I've seen from multiple sources over the past few years.

Omniscience_is_life - your T1 Avacyn, Angel of Hope is highly improbable - even with Jeweled Lotus. She, much like Zacama in my awesome decklist The Predator of Predators suffer from the issue of having a very high CMC - relegating them to primarily mid to late game apperances. Jeweled Lotus does help get those commanders out sooner...but like I said - it has to be Christmas for said commanders to get out early game, let alone T1.
Now, when you said "What I was going at--with the part of my statement that you quoted--was that you say in your original argument "nobody at that table uses any form of interaction in their decks", as well as saying that "combos that powerful are rarely seen in a game". You missed something VERY important here: Context. If you re-read what I said in regards to "Nobody at that table uses any form of interaction..." the paragraph starts with "In reference to the comic". As in, everyone in the playgroup IN THE COMIC likely don't have decks that run alot of interaction. Swords to Plowshares, Pongify, etc - all my examples are not "elite interaction" (as you put it) - they're common. Not a single one of those spells is over 3USD, and all see regular play in EDH. Now, the other part that you got confused with - "combos that powerful are rarely seen in a game" that is in reference to meta - specifically cEDH - NOT the playgroup in the comic. I was saying that a T1 Urza + Mana Crypt + Winter Orb - enabled by Jeweled Lotus would likely be relegated only to cEDH play. Why? Because that combo costs roughly 160USD and that's not including the Lotus - an extra 150USD (at the moment). So, a T1 Urza lock out would be about 300USD more or less. Besides the price point - the meta would also have to tuned to expect that kind of play. Look. Basically what i'm trying to say here is that you took two separate statements I made completely out of context and got confused when making your argument.

This rocks I've always been a fan of arcades, it a fun commander, iv considered building a deck with him many times, one thing to consider tho is that his play style revolves around building up walls then bringing him out to swing with said walls, so this means everyone that starts seing you cast 7/7's for effectively 3 mana or so are going to start targeting your commander first so adding in some extra protection for him is key, some cards to consider are staples like Swiftfoot Boots, or Lightning Greaves, your in white and green so Shalai, Voice of Plenty is a great option or if your not concerned about mana costs Avacyn, Angel of Hope is also great, another thing to consider is that your in blue as well so some countermagic could come in handy like classic Counterspell, or something a little more broad like Counterbalance, just some food for thought :), good luck
