Hm I would put these cards in your deck:

Chart a Course

Tomebound Lich

Benthic Biomancer ---> Combo with Soul Diviner

and play minimum 22 lands :)

Maybe cut 1-2 copies of Benthic Biomancer and maybe a Watertrap Weaver for a few.

Any reason for leaving out Feather, the Redeemed ? Every instant/sorcery you recur can be used again

Possible replacing Benthic Biomancer since Feather can recur cards (without discarding) and also include Defiant Strike to cantrip

Quick Update! Simic Ascendancy added to side or grindy/control or pillow fort match ups. Benthic Biomancer replaces Deeproot Champion Lazotep Plating replaces Nissa, Steward of Elements or defensive purposes (also, so we have hexproof for the turn)

multimedia Appreciate the feedback again, yeah I'm going through constant changes with this deck at the moment. I'm definitely re-adding opt and decided to rid of Jace's Projection since the card draws would be better for a draw deck so to speak. In this case, running out of cards seem to be more important in a way. While still having the cards needed.

I was thinking of finding a way to add in an Augur of Bolas since I like the idea of a 1/3 to help early game as well to draw a certain card type from the top three of your library. I've tried experimenting in arena a little and it seems to get by although with Benthic Biomancer I kind of see the draw/discard idea but sometimes having to discard the stuff you need makes it a bit hard to manage later on.

Appreciate the tips. Will keep on working at it with the recent advice given. Think I may be able to fine tune it up a bit better now. :)

Hey SSK, interesting new deck. I don't play Standard anymore :( I only play casual Commander, but I will still follow Standard and the cards in the new sets.

Trying to win with Jace sounds fun, but still need to have a functioning deck without Jace. Consider more blue Planewalkers and taking advantage of proliferate with those Planewalkers? Consider adding some more control to protect your Planeswalkers: Wizard's Retort and Negate ? Proliferate is powerful with Planewalkers and +1/+1 counters. Flux Channeler is a Wizard and can be a source of repeatable proliferate by playing other noncreature spells including Planeswalkers. Contentious Plan is two drop draw and proliferate. Benthic Biomancer is one mana, also a Wizard and a good target for proliferate because it can put a counter on itself and then each time a counter is added via proliferate you draw and discard a card. He can grow and help to draw through your deck.

Narset, Parter of Veils seems very good especially with proliferate because her ability can help to find Jace, other Planeswalkers or noncreature draw spells. Ashiok, Dream Render 's mill could be good to self-mill yourself. Can use him to self-mill 20 cards over the course of five turns. Very good as a self-mill engine with proliferate since his loyalty ability is -1. Spark Double can copy a Planeswalker and the copy isn't legendary meaning you could have multiple Jace, Narset, Ashiok, etc. in your control.

I see a fourth Jace in the sideboard might as well add it to the main deck to give you more chances to draw him. I also see Narset, Parter of Veils in the sideboard consider adding her main deck and since she's uncommon, budget (less than $1) consider adding more of her?

Consider some of the card draw counter creatures, like Fathom Mage , Benthic Biomancer , Generous Patron , Tezzeret's Gambit , and I'd also ask you to consider Cathars' Crusade !
