Arc Blade deals 2 damage to target creature or player. Remove Arc Blade from the game with three time counters on it.
Suspend 3-(2)(Red) (Rather than play this card from your hand, you may pay (2)(Red) and remove it from the game with three time counters on it. At the beginning of your upkeep, remove a time counter. When the last is removed, play it without paying its mana cost.)

I'd swap out Blaze for Fanning the Flames. It lets you recur the burn, and build it bigger & brighter. Spell Burst, Reiterate, Forbid, and Capsize are all solid choices for recurring spells, as are Arc Blade and Reality Strobe, getting more bang for your buck, as it were. not sure if I'd run all (or even that many of) them, but figured I'd point them out.
you seem to be excessively interested in the opponent's hands, with all the Peek cards you have. I'd probably swap them for better drawing options - Sleight of Hand, Telling Time, Opt, Peer Through Depths, Serum Visions and Think Twice all seem like better fitting options here.
lastly, Recoup for an earlier version of Past in Flames that's single target, Mizzix's Mastery because holy overload batman, and Increasing Vengeance because if its worth casting, its worth casting more than once.
sorry to dump a wall of links on you, been looking at making a similar deck for a while, so had most of these on my mind. best of luck!

as saber4734 said, add cards with madness mechanic to add more value to your discard ability
I like the deck concept, +1. but my criticism from my quick looksie is ::
too many X cost cards (really it limits you to one spell per turn because X is usually means maX lol)
too many discard spells(once you've discarded your hand, those spells become useless, and so does your commanders ability).
I recommend adding more BURN >=D . . For board control and face burn. I think Arc Blade is a good edh card too.

Got here from your forum post...thoughts...
Kaervek the Merciless, Arc Blade, Palace Siege, Phthisis, Cryptolith Fragment Flip can all be interesting/good-ish, as well as Creeping Dread, Pyromancy and Sin Prodder if you add a little recursion. I'm also a fan of cards like Sulfuric Vortex, Forsaken Wastes, Everlasting Torment, and/or Erebos, God of the Dead in these kind of decks...
hope this helps, gl & hf

Uncommon and common noncreature spells that you can cast more than twice: Arc Blade, Capsize, Chronomantic Escape, Flame Jab, Haze of Rage, Invulnerability, Mystic Speculation, Spell Burst, Cenn's Enlistment, Change of Heart, Hands of Binding, Hidden Strings, Mind Games, Shattering Pulse, and Whispers of the Muse.
Also, I forgot to mention Vivid Meadow in my comment on lands.

Here is a few cards you should try since you are running suspend synergy Arc Blade, Deep-Sea Kraken, Epochrasite, Greater Gargadon, Reality Strobe. Deep-Sea Kraken being the best since you can suspend it with 4 counters on it for 2 mana and its effect still applies so its basically a 6/6 unblockable for 2.

I would suggest creatures your color spectrum, that way in a pinch you can still hard cast them.
Rift Elemental is great for removing time counters Paradox Haze can be super powerful. Arc Blade could be an alternate win, or even your main win, suspend out a few and keep them on the defensive with big beasties. Greater Gargadon is a good beater Reality Strobe is my all time favorite for annoying people Bearer of the Heavens is a board wipe and beater all in one Supreme Exemplar and Nova Chaser can champion off of Rift Elemental and are pretty scarey in combat.
In honesty, this probably won't be a tournament winner, but in a casual setting it would be a force to be reckoned with.

I have a few suggestions for you. First if you are going to run Jhoira you will want to make the best out of her ability and to do that you need some time manipulation such as Rift Elemental, Jhoira's Timebug, Fury Charm. Then you will want a few cards that can give you value off of either her effect or the effects of your time counter manipulation such as Arc Blade, Reality Strobe, Greater Gargadon, and Deep-Sea Kraken.
As far as cuts you could make Chameleon Spirit, Archive Trap, Cytoplast Manipulator, Curse of Inertia, Fishliver Oil, Ghostly Touch. All of these cards seem a little slow and clunky in this deck especially Fishliver oil. And they would all make a good option to cut.
