I like sower because one of my friends plays dragons and the other plays Prosh so Sower of Temptation is good removal and a wincon. Yeah I'll cut manglehorn, ill see how it plays to decide if i want more recursion.

Another piece of recursion is Regrowth. For cuts, I would recommend Sower of Temptation, just because it seems kind of random and maybe Manglehorn because you already seem to have a lot of artifact/enchantment interaction.

Last_Laugh I see you did some quick math.
So, since you are playing Sultai, some reanimation strategies and their creatures are really useful. Reanimate and Exhume are the best in the game, alongside Animate Dead and friends. The reason why these are good is because if you manage to reanimate a big threat quickly and start cloning those threats, even if the threat is removed you probably have a million copies of it.
Grave Titan is powerful, with the potential to end games by itself if left unchecked. If you have lots of copies, however, you could win in 2-3 turns easy.
Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger's mill ability is very strong, even in commander. A few clones and you got the game in the bag.
Baleful Force and similar cards are very good, giving you lots of card advantage.
Sower of Temptation just gets really mean with clones. (At the same time, it gets impossible to track who stole what, or, more accurately, what stole what. Now, where's my hat?)
Cloning a Gray Merchant of Asphodel will close a game.
Gilder Bairn, Maulfist Revolutionary and proliferate cards are very good with counters, getting scary quick. Heroes' Bane is such a cool card, and it's always funny seeing someone grow their hydra into mega thicc mode. I did this, and ran out of dice. I borrowed the store's dice, but they ran out too.
Based on the comments above, I'm sure the deck will turn out to be very good, and you might even lose a friend or two when playing magic!

Not a bad start, I do have a few suggestions though. First, I'd work on lowering your avg. cmc to around 3.3. Second are actual card suggestions and I'll try to break it down by category. If nothing else, add Chaos Warp... it's Grixis' best answer to enchantments by FAR.

I've always had a soft spot for running one copy of Peppersmoke but that's just me.

Since the deck is aggro-tempo, I think you can probably drop the Cryptic Commands, as they are too slow and worse than Remand here. I assume you're using Unsummon instead of Vapor Snag because you can bounce your own creatures?
I think you could fit in a singleton of Spell Snare in there, just because it's really satisfying when it works. Also, have you tried testing with 4x Aether Vial? Maybe 1x Faerie Conclave? Other potential faeries are Sower of Temptation, Faerie Impostor, Glen Elendra Archmage (a bit slow but a singleton can do some work). Maybe Chart a Course for more draw or Favorable Winds to pump your creatures. Just throwing out ideas. Looks good! Although Vendilion Clique is dope im serious

Helm of Possession sac outlet for 2 with the steal
Keiga, the Tide Star a little high cast but with haste I can kill each turn and get the steal
Olivia Voldaren if I’m worried about having lots of mana I can’t use up anywhere
Reins of Power ok I think this has significant multiplayer opportunity. I swap prior to combat attack the one with the most life sac all their borrowed creatures to make them permanently mine then I get back the stuff I loaned out.
Sower of Temptation flier with a steal ETB
