Also, is Arcanis the Omnipotent just too expensive? Good way to mill yourself out with Mind Over Matter

Neither of your infinite mana combo are actually infinite mana outlets. The problem is that all of them are using card draw to fuel them and at some point your library will run out. Plus Azami, Lady of Scrolls + Mind Over Matter doesn't actually net you anything - You draw a card with Azami, only to discard it to untap her. She lets you dig, but that's it. With 99 cards in your deck, This means that with the Arcanis the Omnipotent engine you can net a mximum of 66 cards (99 drawn, 33 discarded to untap him). Using Inalla (which I'm presuimng is your primary win condition) You can do a grand total of (65/5)X7 = 77 damage, which isn't enough to wipe the board (you technically need 126 = (7X6)X3 to win assuming no opponent has gained life).

Adding a Kozilek, Butcher of Truth however makes the combo viable as you can draw your deck, discard it all and then pitch Kozilek to reshuffle it. But again, that combo only works with Arcanis, not Azami. Just some food for thought.

I really love wizard decks lol it seems like you have a lot of great things going on here, but I would reccomend Mind Over Matter, especially because you have Arcanis the Omnipotent. That's a draw your deck option. But also it's just super controly. Hope that helps!

Here are a few other things I would take out, just at a glance:Tree of Perdition - > Arcanis the OmnipotentThe Tree is cute, but it's really not going to do anything in terms of winning you the game. It might kill one opponent once every other game, but that's the most use you're going to get out of it. Arcanis is great no matter what he's doing. He can be a target in hand or in grave for your commander, or getting you more targets by letting you draw a crap ton of cards.

Everflowing Chalice - > FireballIf you exile the Chalice with Mairsil, you don't get to pay for the multikicker, because Wizards hates you. Instead, I'd run Fireball so I have somewhere to dump infinite mana and win the game.

Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver - > Gilded LotusYou can't hit Ashiok with Mairsil, and Ashiok's abilities specify opponent, so they're basically a Dimir Value Card. In a deck that wants to be playing combos, what that really means is that you have a filler card. You mentioned to me that you wanted to get infinite mana with Mairsil, Deadeye, and Gilded Lotus because that's technically possible here so long as you have a creature to pair the soulbond with. However, Gilded Lotus isn't actually on your list, so the filler spot is filled.

Dack Fayden - > Trading PostThe reasons for cutting Ashiok applies to Dack. Trading Post is a fabulous target for Mairsil and just does work.

Nicol Bolas, God-Pharaoh - > Torment of HailfireSee reasons for cutting Ashiok. See reasons for adding Fireball.

Painful Quandary - > Peregrine DrakePainful Quandary is... interesting. Personally, I love it. It brings me back. I used to have a 60-card deck that ran Waste Not, Painful Quandary, Megrim, and Liliana's Caress, and it was hella busted. However, like the Planeswalkers, it really feels like a filler card, and you ain't got time for that. Peregrine Drake gets you infinite mana with Deadeye.

Grindstone - > Great WhaleThis one I'm back and forth on. If you really like Grindstone, keep it and cut Palinchron instead. Both the Pali and Great Whale get you infinite mana with Deadeye, but one is significantly cheaper money-wise. The reason I'm not sure you should play Grindstone is that in a three color deck, the likelihood you're ever going to hit two cards of the same color in a row is very, very small. Each individual card in the 99 has a 1/4 chance of being any given color or colorless. If they're both lands or both artifacts, since Grindstone says that the cards have to share a color, then it doesn't count. The card is more money than it's worth for you, so I think you would rather play Great Whale and at least increase your shot at hitting infinite mana so you can do fun shenanigans.

If you're wanting to go hard combo, I would also cut Mind Funeral and Mind Grind for more tutor spells/effects. Increasing Ambition, Rune-Scarred Demon, Diabolic Tutor all come to mind. Another infinite combo that you can get is Gravecrawler + Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + Phyrexian Altar but that's a bit more money (about $65 total).

Okay, I'm gonna wrap this up because TappedOut is making my computer lag. Short version: this is a cool idea but I think it needs a little tuning.

Arcanis the Omnipotent is great with Mairsol, cage him up and now you can tap Mari to draw three or pay 4 to bounce, nice draw power really

With C17 being spoiled in full today, we can add quite a lot of cards to the list.

Ovsiously all 5 of the reprinted FRF dragons (i.e Ojutai, Soul of Winter) are from Tarkir. So are both Taigams.

Marchesa, the Black Rose is from Fiora.

Not positive but I believe both the Ur-Dragon and his scion are from Dominaria.

Mairsil, Ramos, Mirri, Wasitora, Jareth, Leonine Titan, Jedit Ojanen of Efrava, and Arcanis the Omnipotent are from Dominaria

Anowon, the Ruin Sage, and Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief are from zendikar.

You already have the 5 wedge dragons from dominaria, now their shard colored counterparts (i.e Crosis, the Purger) can join them.

Azami, Lady of Scrolls, Ryusei, the Falling Star, and O-Kagachi are from Kamigawa.

Edgar Markov is innistrad.

Raksha Golden Cub is from Mirrodin.

Nazahn is unknown but Im gonna guess he's from Mirrodin.

Both niv-mizzets are from Ravnica.

Arahbo, Balan, Kess, Licia, Mathas, Vela, and Inalla are unknown.

Pili-Pala and Gilded Lotus for infinite mana and infinite untap (into Memnarch for infinite steal, Arcanis the Omnipotent for infinite draw). Also, self-referential cards do work:

I specifically thought about sac effects. Wizards might nerf this, however.
