Abaques on WOTC announcement - All Commanders …

For a fun one, Jegantha, the Wellspring and Progenitus.

Or how about going with Sliver-geddon and running The First Sliver and Sliver Overlord.

Or, because Urza, Lord High Artificer really needs access to all five colors, run him with Urtet, Remnant of Memnarch

Or perhaps you're just an evil person and you run Sakashima the Impostor so you can get a second Grand Arbiter Augustin IV on the battlefield.

Another pairing for those who hate their friends would be Maralen of the Mornsong and Ob Nixilis, Unshackled.

Cool deck! Personally I would make these swaps:

Messenger Jays -> Academy Manufactor
Lieutenants of the Guard -> Coalition Flag (fun to put on Tivit since he has Ward 3)
Venser's Journal -> Auton Soldier (can copy Tivit!)
Winged Words -> Battle Mastery (double strike on Tivit to double his effect)
Propaganda -> Thorough Investigation
Warden of Evos Isle -> Worn Powerstone
Emergency Powers -> Anointed Procession
Fact or Fiction -> Spark Double
Dig Through Time -> Irenicus's Vile Duplication
Eligeth, Crossroads Augur -> Inspiring Statuary (can tap itself to reduce costs, also allows you to tap clues & treasures to reduce costs)
Sphinx Sovereign -> Brago's Representative
Treasure Cruise -> Sakashima of a Thousand Faces
Opt -> Sakashima the Impostor
Unesh, Criosphinx Sovereign -> Time Sieve
Vexing Sphinx -> Mirkwood Bats
Aetherize -> Mondrak, Glory Dominus
Sphinx of Foresight -> Rise and Shine
Glyph Keeper -> Cyberdrive Awakener

If I was playing against you I'd let you run Hyalopterous Lemure in here, too bad it's not 6 MV!

Have you thought about some non-Legendary copy effects? Sakashima of a Thousand Faces, Spark Double, and Sakashima the Impostor can all duplicate your Commander.

Also, since you always have mana up you might have some fun with Crystal Shard, it can let you recast Imoti (to keep digging out ramp), or something bigger to find something more useful, and you always have the option bouncing a creature of anyone who dares use all of their mana.

It's pretty pricey, but Guardian Project is kinda cool in a deck like this.

I see you have Thunderfoot Baloth, I could never decide if it or Siege Behemoth was a better at what it does, Behemoth sneaks in all damage regardless of blocks, Thunderfoot gives trample. I think Pathbreaker Ibex is probably better than either if you have decent odds of having a creature with at least 3 power out (your Commander is 3 power).

Final card, the one Enchantment that I think you should definitely look at if you look at nothing else is Lurking Predators, you won't get cascades but I think the risk of free Eldrazi should scare most people away from spamming spells.

Maybe Crashing Drawbridge to give your creatures haste, and Entomb and Buried Alive to Reanimate your most powerful Knights. You could Secret Salvage a Nazgûl to search your library for the other eight.

Fireshrieker for your Commander, and definitely Silverblade Paladin. But you could also consider just going for Sakashima the Impostor and similar copycats to double down on your commander’s abilities.

Quazer on Sakashima copy of Lazav, the …

if Sakashima the Impostor enters as a copy of Lazav, the Multifarious does Lazav's ability make Sakashima's name Lazav, the Multifarious? and if so does the legend rule suddenly apply?

Also! If Sakashima the Impostor enters as a copy of Lazav, the Multifarious while Lazav is a copy of another creature does Sakashima have Lazav's ability?

I had a longer post but it got lost in the shuffle. Anyways, I like what you're doing here and hope some of these janky ideas will work!

I like Grasp of Fate in a deck like this. If you know who is able to remove it you can make a point of not targeting anything too serious of theirs, in some metas it's not hard to keep this out (lots of decks without Green or White). Stroke of Midnight is another reasonable removal spell with a high level of versatility.

Since you run a lot of wipes and removal I feel like Kothophed, Soul Hoarder is a pretty solid include. As long as he kills what he blocks he'll draw a card each time, any removal that sends stuff to the graveyard is much better, and your wipes can easily feel like Decree of Pain, obviously not great if everyone is on infinite creature combo (in which they don't win that turn as well) but if people have ~10 creatures out you'll get a new hand. Kothophed also draws cards vs things like Fetchlands and Treasure/Clue tokens, I think he's more risky if you don't have a good counter package.

Have you thought about something like Sakashima the Impostor to copy Ioreth? If you have your Commander out she can kill off the entire table except the best thing, which you can keep.

Liliana, Death's Majesty is a nice fit in cards that like the idea of a wipe but might already have several, this Liliana makes tokens and can reanimate stuff in a pinch, but it's the wipe that's extra spicy.

War Tax is a janky card that can be used to protect your planeswalkers, but it can also be used politically, though it suffers a lot of people don't keep their word, the way I like to use it is to make deals with people, they agree either to not send at me (or send less at me), and if they do I don't tax, if they don't I either tax or remove stuff of theirs as punishment. It's really good if the next player is the most aggressive, and the effect is worse if you have 'better' things to do with your resources, but this is a mana sink that people really sleep on.
