The main area that will improve this deck the most is your mana ramp. I'll try to keep my suggestions budget friendly and I can also help suggest some cuts if you'd like.
Talisman of Conviction, Talisman of Creativity, Talisman of Progress, Fellwar Stone, Pentad Prism (only cost rock that ramps 2 different colored mana in one turn), Worn Powerstone, Coalition Relic, and Basalt Monolith are all great mana rocks here. Crystal Vein and Generator Servant are great options too. I literally ran all of these plus what you already run.
Feel free to check out my list for ideas. It's extra turns Narset and it's pretty optimized. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Narset, American Beauty

If you're for some reason looking at this deck and thinking, "What on earth does this bad boy do?" well: here's the goal, kinda. You dig. and dig and dig and dig and search and search and search and search and ramp and ramp and ramp and ramp and by like turn 4 you've got infinite blue mana congradulations! The main win cons are: Painter's Servant / Grindstone infinite mana + Walking Ballista Mycosynth Lattice + Memnarch Urza's ability to cycle through your whole deck The main infinite mana routes are: Grand Architect + Pili-Pala Basalt Monolith + Power Artifact / Rings of Brighthearth Isochron Scepter + Dramatic Reversal + a way to get 3 nonland mana rocks cough Urza cough
Something to note is that the deck doesn't win immediately. It isn't aggro, it's control. You play cards such as Winters Orb, Trinisphere, and Static Orb to control your opponent's board(s) and then tap them down to allow yourself to not be controlled. The main weaknesses of this deck is artifact hate (duh) and Urza getting removed or negated. If you get Urza on board and he doesn't get removed, it is very typical to win in the next 2-4 turns solely due to your whole board being a mana rock. If cards such as Null Rod is played against you, it is important to remember that Urza taps your artifacts for mana, which is nice. On the flip side, if Urza is enchanted by a card such as Lignify, the reverse happens and most of your mana is unusable. In blue in general, once something hits the board it is very difficult to remove, so I included cards such as Pongify to deal with problems, but typically in my games I just outspeed the problem. I know I included a lot here, but I am still playing and tinkering with this deck. If you have any suggestions or comments or questions, let me know! I want to see more Urza players out there, and I think that he is a terribly fun commander. Also you WILL get targetted as hard if not harder than an Atraxa player, so good luck!

Hello, like seeing a fun casual zirda deck that doesn't rely on the same dumb infinite combos like Basalt Monolith into Walking Ballista! But just wanted to make sure that you are aware that Zirda can't make activated abilities cost less than 1 generic. So stuff like Mind's Eye or Tome of Legends is not effected

This deck, as it is, seems very weak to Devoted Druid getting exiled, as it doesn't really look like you have a plan B. You don't even have Riftsweeper. That said, I do love your idea of utilizing Assassin's Trophy and/or Finale of Devastation to win. I've been brewing with Tayam for a while, and I'm using Syr Konrad, the Grim in mine with Mesmeric Orb + Basalt Monolith as a way to mill myself without Tayam & the Druid, but this strategy does require I run more potentially "dead" cards, like Gaea's Blessing, Vigor, Sevinne's Reclamation, Animate Dead, Dance of the Dead and Konrad. Although the only of those that feel truly dead in hand to me is Konrad and Vigor, but they are all taking the slot of cards that could be more generally useful, like more tutors and removal.

Cool deck! I like the flavor. Morophon just makes sense as an eldrazi leader for some reason haha. Here are some cards you might consider:
Pitiless Plunderer (good with eldrazi spawn/scions), Heirloom Blade, Dimir Machinations / Drift of Phantasms (can find Fist of Suns and other things), Ravnica at War, Temur Sabertooth (allows you to reuse eldrazi with cast/enter abilities), Basalt Monolith (if played turn 3, this gets Morophon out on turn 4. can also be used to play high-cmc eldrazi every other turn in the absence of your fist combo), Oblivion Sower, Sire of Stagnation
