Have you found Leovold, Emissary of Trest to be too broken as a Commander choice? It was banned as a Commander in regular EDH, so I'm curious as to why it's in your Cube or if you've found it to be fair.

I don't recall if anyone has drafted him yet. The goal of the cube is to do broken things and play broken and banned cards (without explicitly breaking them). You'd have a pretty difficult time drafting wheels.dec so it shouldn't be too much of a problem. So far Karakas is the only card I cut for being horrible to play against.

I think some Un-cards could be as fun if not more than some of the EDH banned cards you already allow.

I seriously considered Un cards, but I just don't see any that I wanted to run. I di have a stack of planeswalkers that I want to include and retool the cube as one where you can optionally draft them as commanders.

There are definitely some walkers that could make for some great decks/games.
