Partner with Haldan, Avid Arcanist (When this creature enters the battlefield, target player may put Haldin, Avid Arcanist into their hand from their library, then shuffle.)
Whenever Pako, Arcane Retriever attacks, exile the top card of each player's library and put a fetch counter on each of them. Put a +1/+1 counter on Pako for each noncreature card exiled this way.

Pako, Arcane Retriever Discussion

I can do foils, yes. :) Cash is fine by me too.
As for what I have on hand, I have the Crucible of Worlds that I would value at $40, a playset of identical Pikachu Lightning Helix that I would take $40 for the set, a foil promo Smash to Smithereens that I'd value at $10.

Partner commanders are powerful, and often free your deck's ability to do more than a single commander deck. Companions give decks restrictions on what cards they can run. By running both it limits your deck even more, since most partner pairings don't work with the companion requirements.
Yorion, Sky Nomad and Lutri, the Spellchaser straight up can't be run as companions, and Jegantha, the Wellspring won't work since it requires five colors, and no partner pairing currently allows for it. No partner pairing also allows for Lurrus of the Dream-Den. Gyruda, Doom of Depths also can't be run, since no partners are both even cmc and have black in their color identity. Kaheera, the Orphanguard also can't work, since the types aren't found on partners that can be run together.
Now, what lists are now able to be run?
Wow, that only took a half hour longer to write up than expected.
Which of these would you want to make, if any, and how would you make them?

Sephyrias as Frostman1255 said, Ukkima, Stalking Shadow Flip with cazar is a powerful sultai food chain commander that no longer needs a wincon in the deck as ukkima can finish once you have food chain, free's up a few cards in the 99. but i second the Haldan, Avid Arcanist and Pako, Arcane Retriever do nothing on their own and certainly don't belong where they are on the list.

Prossh, Skyraider of Kher has dropped far. Either that, or the commander powercreep of the past 2-3 sets caught up to him and now there are simply a dozen new options on the same level. Maybe both.
How much of all this is caused by Thassa's Oracle?

Hello! Nice deck, I am also building Haldan and Pako and I think I might have some ideas on which cards you should put away from your deck. I think that both Agent of Treachery and Avenger of Zendikar are costing too much mana. Also they are creatures so maybe you could exile them and they could be dead cards. I think that Oblivion Sower is a much better card in this deck especially because if you exiled a lot of lands from someone you could just cast this for 6 mana and potentially get more lands out of it. If you would like to use Agent of Treachery to steal something then you can just play Telemin Performance or just go for the good old Blatant Thievery. Maybe Omnath, Locus of the Roil is a bit better card than Tatyova, Benthic Druid because he will provide you with the same card draw and he will plus Pako, Arcane Retriever as he is also an elemental. Otherwise I think this looks like a cool deck altogether.
