Thada Adel, Acquisitor is amazing. I have had every players Sol Ring multiple times just for fun. Just exiling combo pieces is useful.

Cloak and Dagger is good. Knowledge Exploitation can change the game.

Thada Adel, Acquisitor steal a LOT. if nothing else all the copies of Solemn Simulacrum. Then you know every card in their deck. I like to steal Sol Ring.

some ideas for cuts: Acquire seems like generic goodstuff in this deck that doesn't seem to care about artifacts very much. Nothing wrong with goodstuff in general, but I feel like cards that don't fit your theme or help your strategy should be the first to go when making cuts. Thada Adel, Acquisitor seems to fit a similar mold, but it at least can benefit from being cloned.

Apex Devastator can cascade into some nice stuff, but it can also whiff, and the cascade trigger won't happen again if you clone it, which it seems is the main focus of the deck.

Hullbreacher is good, but cloning it won't give you any additional treasures, since the card draw will be replaced by the first one and then the clones won't see a card draw to replace for their own effects.

Keiga, the Tide Star is usually good in clone decks because it can die easily due to the legend rule. Since your commander stops that from happening, I would think twice about including it here. Not that a 5/5 flyer with upside if it happens to die is bad, it's just not as good without the legend rule.

Kozilek, the Great Distortion is another example of a card that is best when it's cast as opposed to cloned. Two somewhat evasive 12/12s are certainly better than one, but the needed colorless mana and lack of other upside for cloning it make me skeptical.

Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath seems pretty bad here, because almost all of your clone effects have the clone entering as a copy, and not escaping, so they'd be sacrificed immediately. You'd still get the etb triggers, but I'd rather not waste a clone spell on that.

Lullmage's Domination seems like a worse Entrancing Melody in a deck without mill.

Congrats, I think you've found the only creature-based edh deck where Guardian Project doesn't work very well. Since most of your clones will be entering with the same name as a creature already on your board, you won't be drawing off of them.

You only have 15 enchantments in the deck, so you have a good chance of not having a target for Estrid's Invocation. I'd cut it.

You have 2 effects that untap your lands in Wilderness Reclamation and Seedborn Muse, but unless you draw Leyline of Anticipation or Vedalken Orrery you don't have a whole lot you can do with that mana on other people's turns. If you still have 20 instants once you're down to 100 cards I'd say they're worth it, but I expect you'll be cutting some of those.

love the list :) and absolutely love the fact that you take the time to list the individual basic lands! that's some dedication to your aesthetic choices! my wife has a kumena deck as well, and she often completely decimates me. cards on her list, that could do wonders for you, I think, are: Vorel of the Hull Clade, Stonybrook Banneret, Seafloor Oracle, Thada Adel, Acquisitor, Hadana's Climb  Flip, Novijen, Heart of Progress, Ring of Evos Isle, Favor of the Overbeing, Tatyova, Benthic Druid, Give / Take, Bioshift, Sage of Fables, and Icon of Ancestry. Stay frosty mate
