Have you considered As Foretold? Seems like it would be great with proliferate and can help you cheat out walkers.

I'm not very familiar with Modern, as I mainly play Standard and occasionally EDH. If I had to guess, I'd say that BBE into Liliana of the Veil will make Jund even more powerful, and might even see play in the Death's Shadow lists. She might also be good in Gruul land destruction as she cascades into Molten Rain, Stone Rain, or Blood Moon.

I think that UW Control will be very successful with Jace, and he might even help enable those old Miracle lists again. I personally like the idea of a Grixis control deck with Jaces and As Foretold, but again I have little experience with Modern.

Probably Grixis Energy has become more powerful with the banning of Attune with Aether. But this deck feels slightly weaker against control decks and aggro/burn decks. A (probably horrible) idea is to add As Foretold, then use Disallow or Admiral's Order to put pressure on your opponent to act. If your opponent can't remove As Foretold, it can turn the tide of the game. Great deck, definitely worth an up vote.

Restore Balance As Foretold good options over dusk dawn and expertise

You'll want Cyclonic Rift. It's one of the best tempo cards in EDH. Also, if you're going for control as your theme you're probably going to want more counter magic, like Counterspell. Swords to Plowshares is also good.

Another thing to think about is whether or not the lifegain strategy is going to work given the current control shell. Maybe you could mill yourself out and with with Laboratory Maniac, which is pretty easy to do, as an alternate win condition.

Some other cards to consider: Mind's Dilation, Supreme Verdict, Merciless Eviction, Rhystic Study, Consecrated Sphinx, Sphinx's Revelation, Blue Sun's Zenith, As Foretold, Mystical Tutor, Baleful Strix.

Boza on does as foretold also pay ...

Commander tax is an additional cost, it has to be paid in addition to any other costs, even if you are casting that spell for free. The total cost of castnig any spell is:

Mana cost + cost increases - cost reductions = actual amount of mana you need to pay

As Foretold only lowers the first thing in the eequation to 0 and has no impact on the rest.

Ancestral Vision normally can't be cast, because it has no mana cost printed on it, and you can't pay a cost of nothing. Normally you have to suspend the card to eventually cast it when the counters are removed and you can play it without paying it's mana cost. << note that this is an alternative cost of paying the requirements for the spell.

Panoptic Mirror has the wording 'play the copy without paying it's mana cost' and As Foretold for example, has the wording 'you may pay rather than it's mana cost' which are both alternative methods of paying the cost.

In short, Ancestral Vision can be cast because you are able to pay an alternative cost, not it's own not existing mana cost.

Cool commander!

Brago, King Eternal might offer some nice synergies here. Maybe an Eldrazi Displacer and some Wastes.

As Foretold and Mind's Dilation might complement Aether Vial.

Happy playing!
