Thada Adel, Acquisitor Discussion

Thada Adel, Acquisitor is amazing in commander. Stealing sol rings or other ramp then moving on to bigger artifacts.
Most commander decks have more lands, so at least 33 + ramp, maybe more (i aim for a total of 40 land + ramp at least).

Scattershot Archer (especially if you have ways to give it deathtouch)
Traproot Kami in mono-green
Soulmender in any build that has "Whenever you gain life" triggers
Skyblinder Staff in flying heavy decks
Runed Stalactite in tribal builds to protect utility creatures
And I didn't forget black, I just don't play it so I don't have anything to add for that color.

It would be nice to have a backup plan in case someone disrupts your Mirran Spy + Walking Ballista combo ( Thada Adel, Acquisitor and Praetor's Grasp will ruin your day). Laboratory Maniac will work for backup upkeep win con, and is easily tutorable via Drift of Phantasms (but avoid Thassa's Oracle for this build).
Some bounce aside from Cyclonic Rift will stop you from losing to Pithing Needle-type effects or Linvala, Keeper of Silence as well as graveyard hate such as Rest in Peace or Grafdigger's Cage. Collector Ouphe and Kataki, War's Wage will be big problems without adequate removal.
I hope this helps.

Hellkite Tyrant is an alternate wincon.

I just started updating this again. I would consider adding some Glimpse the Unthinkable to it, and maybe cut out the Thada Adel, Acquisitor. Silumgar's Command is a big maybe. I dunno. I could also add Sadistic Sacrament or up the number of Surgical Extraction involved.

One of the best blue ramp cards is Thada Adel, Acquisitor. I have no idea how many games I have ended up with every Sol Ring in the game.
Cards similar to what you already have listed that I really like are Protective Bubble, Alexi's Cloak, Neurok Stealthsuit for Shroud. Vedalken Plotter to open up islandwalk (since it isn't an enchantment the effect is harder to remove).

Doubling Cube (kinda pricey though), doubles mana, even stored mana
Instill Energy maybe
