One thing I don't think you mentioned is that Mimic Vat can imprint a dying animated artifact.

KnightofDurin, good question. I feel like this altercation of Athreos is a little more diverse in term of playstyle in comparison to the Nyx version, whereas most Athreos, God of Passage decks tend to optimize on the Shadowborn Apostle strategy. I named the "The More Interesting Athreos Deck" not as an attack to other Aethreos decks but as an assessment to why I thought this version of Athreos had more potential to amalgamate some sort of synergy by running a bunch of cards that you normally wouldn't run in a aristocrat deck. Cards like Sundial of the Infinite are not usually not common in a Orzhov deck, but in this case it compliments the theme of reanimating creatures that you've killed and eventually duplicating them because Sundial of the Infinite negates the temporary effect of Mimic Vat/Mirage Mirror/Whip of Erebos etc.
This is a very old deck of mine, I thought it would just be fun to throw in some cheeky synergy. I know it might not be the most efficient, but it was more for the shits and giggels. If you have any suggestions to improve the deck, please leave them in the comment.

Metropolis39 hey!, thank for your answer!
With the actual lockdown i didn't manage to bring it to any events, but i did play it versus competitive decks, like U/W spirits, red aggro, urza uro, urza tron... and it actually compete pretty well. Early is pretty tuff tho, i often find myself in really low life conditions, but i always manage to survive to get into my exile phase.
Mimic Vat saved me a lot of times, using it on Flickerwisp, Stonehorn Dignitary or Charming Prince is amazing, but yeah i'm thinking of replacing it by Voyager Staff to get more early gestion and putting 2 more Detention Sphere in my sideboard, maybe 2 Damping Sphere to avoid facing huge early mana boost.

carpecanum - thanks so much! Thada Adel, Acquisitor is a great suggestion. I'll add it here, but it's expensive enough that I hesitate to buy and add it to the paper deck. I've thought about adding changelings but I didn't know enough off of the top of my head to add them in. Thanks for the suggestions, I think I'll consider adding Chameleon Colossus for its ability.
I don't think this deck needs much recurrence, because it's got a lot of cheap creatures and a decent amount of draw spells. However, Mimic Vat is really good and I think I'll add it to my Teysa Karlov Commander deck.

Minion Reflector,Mimic Vat,Both these artifacts let you make short term copies of a scarecrow for 2-3 mana. These not only can be used to swing but allow will count as 2-3 mana permanent removal with your commander
Ephemerate, is a one mana blink creatures once for two turns essentially giving you two blow up triggers for one mana
Conjurer's Closet, Gives you a blink each turn for recurring value
Mirror Entity, not only will give you a way to destroy a permanent because it is a changeling but also gives you a win condition if you have a lot of scarecrows.
