Hey, nice upgrades of the precon and keeping the overall deck price under $100 is impressive.
Arcane Signet is a budget staple of Commander that you should strongly consider adding in place of Sphere of the Suns . The deathtouch theme looks out of place/used as filler from the all the other cards that show me that you do have good card sense on a budget. The deathtouch theme isn't needed here as it's not giving bonus interaction with Aminatou's blink or draw/put card on top of library.
Some creatures with deathtouch are good such as Baleful Strix and Gonti, Lord of Luxury , but these cards are good not because they have deathtouch instead because they do something when they enter the battlefield (ETB) which blinking them gives you more value. The deathtouch is a nice bonus, but it's not needed.
The card spots that are being used by Mardu Hateblade , Alchemist's Gift , Coat with Venom , High Priest of Penance , Tidehollow Strix and Gifted Aetherborn could be replaced with more permanents that have interaction with Aminatou, blink or cards with miracle.
- Felidar Guardian
- Oath of Kaya
- Reality Acid
- Omen of the Sea
- Solemn Simulacrum
- Ravenous Chupacabra
Felidar Guardian + Aminatou is a combo to infinite blink Guardian and Aminatou since when you blink Aminatou with Guardian a new object of Aminatou ETB which lets you use it's -1 loyalty ability again to blink Guardian who then again blinks Aminatou and repeat. If you add Oath of Teferi then each time you -1 loyalty Aminatou you can do it again thus you can blink two permanents with each Aminatou. The first being any other permanent you control which can be a win condition and the second is Guardian and repeat.
- Oath of Kaya do 3 damage as many times as you need to each opponent.
- Gonti, Lord of Luxury to exile all your opponents libraries.
- Reality Acid or Angel of Despair to destroy all your opponents permanents.
- Peregrine Drake is infinite mana.
- Baleful Strix , Omen of the Sea or Mulldrifter is draw as many cards you want or draw Peregrine, cast it and then draw Oath to win.
- Solemn Simulacrum is put all basic lands in your library onto the battlefield tapped.
- Ravenous Chupacabra or Massacre Wurm is kill all your opponents creatures.
If interested I offer more advice including some budget land upgrades. Would you like more help? Good luck with your deck.

Echoing Equation: Brudiclad is very sad that this card has a simic color identity (cough Thousand-Faced Heroics cough). Anyway, point this at Najeela, the Blade-Blossom or Ezuri, Claw of Progress and you'll likely threaten to kill someone. Xyris, the Writhing Storm can produce an absurd amount of sneks for similar results on the turn after, while Edric, Spymaster of Trest can probably make you deck yourself with a source of evasion

Sphinx Summoner jumps out as a good add, but I don't know what should eb taken out, up to you I guess.
I like running more kill spells, exile spells, and counter spells but your call if that's the way you want it to run.

Circuitous Route also feels a bit off, maybe considering cutting it, or replacing it with something else?
Also, you've probably already considered it, but Atraxa, Praetors' Voice would also be an interesting and on-theme idea for a commander.

+1...This looks fun, not typical of UB pauper decks. Not sure if you know, Cloud of Faeries is banned in pauper...possible replacements to consider: Drake Familiar(good for resetting Unstable Mutation), Elusive Spellfist or Tidehollow Strix.
