Ask your friends about specific cards but here are some general ideas.

If you have a "sac outlet" you can kill the opponents cards after you attack with them. This way they never get those creatures back. Helm of Possession is fun. Jalira, Master Polymorphist lets you get one of your own creatures out. There are a LOT of cards that allow you to kill your own creatures.

If you have cards that return a creature from play to its owners hand then you can choose that card for combat and your opponent has to recast the creature. You also remove a blocker. Boomerang is an old one but there are dozens.

I agree with Focus_Jim about the mana artifacts. You could even trade a couple lands for more mana items. Don't go below 35 lands though.

Nightmare Shepherd is one of the best as it adds a lot of functionality with no upfront cost and allows you to exploit sacrifice mechanics like evoke. Creating token clones with etb/ltb can easily become overpowered, especially when combined with populate. In fact I built a great ETB Roon EDH deck around it using cards like Yosei, the Morning Star, Protean Hulk and Wayfaring Temples that clone themselves. Token clone generation is amazing because it's essentially ETB blinking as a side effect. You have some cards that do it already listed under abuse but I think the mechanic is good enough and has enough viable cards that it might be worth making a new category for it.

Also some other blink type cards:

Blink-Yorion, Sky Nomad Conditional bounce- Cunning Evasion ETB clone- Wall of Stolen Identity Graveyard blink- Cauldron of Souls, Twilight Shepherd, Adarkar Valkyrie ETB Abuse- Jalira, Master Polymorphist, Proteus Staff, Master Transmuter. Listing the ones that specifically clone or blink artifacts in their own group might be helpful too.

I feel like this deck wants to be fairly aggro, but you've built it to have quite a bit of control.

Shadowspear or Arcane Lighthouse would help you to target things that would be otherwise untargetable.

Arena and other fight effects could help you ditch your stolen creature similar to the Fling mechanics you currently have. I feel like you'll run out steam really quickly with all of these one-off effects. Maybe use Jalira, Master Polymorphist for a repeatable way to transform random stuff you steal from opponents into useful permanent stuff you need. I would also recommend Prime Speaker Vannifar or any other card with this effect like Birthing Pod. Throw in some really good, efficient green creatures too.

You should be getting enough card advantage by stealing opponents' stuff and transforming it into flings and polymorphs, but the deck needs to win. You're relying on the opponents having good creatures to steal, but you need to have good creatures too.

Yasova is a really cool commander, not one I see often. I like where you are going with this. Good luck!

Jalira, Master Polymorphist should let you build a deck with budget (read: otherwise unplayable) creatures in your deck, by having instants/ sorceries that create tokens that are sacrificed to hunt down the beaters.
