Freed from the Real
Enchantment — Aura
: Tap enchanted creature.
: Untap enchanted creature.

You are already running 2/3 of the creatures and the auras can also be used with Arcanis the Omnipotent, Elvish Piper, and Howlpack Piper Flip so they can still work with your game plan even outside of the combos.
I can respect wanting to keep a deck within a particular power range though. I think that the best games are ones where it feels like everyone is on about the same level and have a roughly equal chance at taking the win.

Nimblewright Schematic gives you value, and you can go infinite with a few other cards; Servo Schematic works the same way. Sai, Master Thopterist also works well in this regard. Freed from the Real and Pemmin's Aura allow you to repeat Arcum.

Hey smack80, I appreciate the mana dork and rock suggestions. I am curious though, Blightsteel is not my only wincon. I could be wrong, but I tried to build it in such a way that once I had infinite mana, which not only can be achieved with Freed from the Real but also Pemmin's Aura, you can dump that mana into Kinnan to get out one of several card drawers and creatures like Thassa's Oracle and Laboratory Maniac. You are right though that's not very speedy to rely on those enchantments or the Griffin + Food Chain combo. If you have any suggestions to get out those enchantments or artifacts like Basalt Monolith faster that would be awesome. The Blightsteel addition was more just for fun but can also be a wincon. And don't forget Memnarch. This card with infinite mana makes for one unhappy table.

From the looks of it, budget isn't a great concern for you, so why not run some Moxen? Mox Amber, Mox Opal, Chrome Mox, and Mox Diamond. Jeweled Lotus is ok too, but it is a bit lost on Kinnan. Lotus Petal and Elvish Spirit Guide are more budget, tbh.
I would recommend focusing more on creature/artifact ramp than land ramp, as Kinnan will reward you handsomely for those and not so much for land ramp.

Tribal Enchantment - Druid
: For each color among permanents you control, add one mana of that color. Activate this ability only if you control a blue permanent.
Create a lamp, lantern, candle, or other light source.

Nonary27 There are a lot of competitive/fringe competitive commanders in both sets.
Cormela, Glamour Thief combos with reanimator spells like Footsteps of the Goryo as long as you have cost reduction cards like Goblin Electromancer or a sac outlet that generates mana. I think she's pretty strong. Anhelo, the Painter is a grixis version of Kalamax, the Stormsire. Probably the best of the new Grixis commanders. Evelyn, the Covetous is weaker than it looks. I don't think there is an infinite blink/flicker/cloning combo piece that's also a vampire. Probably not better than Vela the Night-Clad, even with the extra color. Lord Xander, the Collector has a big impact on casual tables, but is nowhere near as relevant in competitive play. Would put him somewhere close to Evelyn.
Falco Spara, Pactweaver is an okay value engine, but you have to jump through extra hoops to go infinite with it compared to Elsha of the Infinite, so it will be a few tiers lower than Elsha. Rigo, Streetwise Mentor has to compete with Edric, Spymaster of Trest, they want to do more or less the same thing. I'm not sure if Rigo is better or worse.
Ognis, the Dragon's Lash does the same as Grand Warlord Radha. You get an extra color, but have the restriction regarding haste in exchange. Henzie "Toolbox" Torre is just a bad Grim Haruspex that can serve as pseudo-haste-enabler. Not weak, but also not very strong. Rocco, Cabaretti Caterer is a Wargate for creatures in the command zone. Might be the strongest Naya legend to date, although Marath, Will of the Wild is no joke either. Jolene, the Plunder Queen enables untap combos with Black Market Tycoon, but it just ends up being a much worse version of the Freed from the Real combos that other commanders can do.
None of the others are worth mentioning imo.
Commander Legends 2
Abdel Adrian, Gorion's Ward is similar to Lagrella, all about Fiend Hunter-type flicker/sacrifice combos. Candlekeep Sage is probably the best background for it. Alaundo the Seer is a simic version of Jhoira of the Ghitu, except that it's slower, but also draws cards. Bhaal, Lord of Murder is more or less an Odric's Outrider in the command zone, but that it only counts for nontoken creatures means you can't combo with Scurry Oak, so it's probably not that great. I think Duke Ulder Ravengard combos with Port Razer?
Gale, Waterdeep Prodigy sort of gives all your instants & sorceries flashback, which is usually very powerful. Not sure how good it ends up being in practice however. Ganax, Astral Hunter is basically just Galazeth Prismari. Kagha, Shadow Archdruid is yet another Golgari recursion commander, which are usually at least decent. Jan Jansen, Chaos Crafter goes infinite with Clock of Omens and Liquimetal Coating.

I have Obeka, Brute Chronologist enchanted with Freed from the Real and all the blue mana I need. During an opponent's draw step, I tap Obeka and ask if they want to end their turn. They naturally refuse. I untap and retap Obeka with the same question. How long can I stop the game like this, and are there any penalties I would suffer under the rules? Would it just come down to whoever loses patience first?
One one hand, all actions and decisions are voluntary and not mandatory, so it's not a forced draw. On the other hand, neither player has any incentive to ever change their action or decision.

Maybe some cost reduction effects like Dragonlord's Servant or Dragonspeaker Shaman, more ramp with Arbor Elf + Utopia Sprawl (+ Freed from the Real if you want to go infinite), or rituals like Seething Song or Vessel of Volatility could help.
