Thank you for your kind comment. I'm glad you like the deck!
I've only ever been disappointed by Bloodwater Entity whenever I've cast it. It's just too slow. It also doesn't work with Tome the way you think: you draw first as it's cast, then you stack the top of your deck as it ETBs. You'd have to draw again to get the recurred card, and of course you won't usually have Tome since it's a unique effect and we're not running any artifact tutors. It's entirely possible that Stormchaser Mage isn't good enough for Commander but it's a Wizard, so the floor for how good it has to be on its own isn't too high.
I would strongly recommend you don't take Gorgon Flail out. When attached to our Commander, it gives our Red spells each a free Wrath of God that upgrades to Plague Wind if we have Levitation out. This is actually the kind of effect that the deck wants even more of; Basilisk Collar would be amazing if it weren't so pricey.
As for counterspells, I don't want to go too heavy on them. The deck wants to be active rather than reactive. Creature-only counterspells are particularly iffy since we have so many ways of killing creatures once they've resolved. Ionize would certainly be a consideration, but I don't think it's worth the $1. If this deck wants it at all, it's only very marginally better than Cancel .

I like this deck a lot, especially for how budget-friendly it is--that makes me really happy :D
I have always wanted to like Stormchaser Mage but have found kind of limited uses for him in Commander. I might consider Bloodwater Entity and trade Stormchaser Mage 's haste for the recursion of Bloodwater Entity , although there is the drawback of taking sorceries/instants out of your graveyard and not even putting them directly into your hand (unless you have Tome of the Guildpact out). I might also take out Gorgon Flail to put in another gold card to give Tome of the Guildpact more mileage and to trigger the commander more. Maybe I'd put in something like Essence Backlash or Ionize for better control, though I don't like how expensive Essence Backlash is in terms of mana. (the addition of an instant rather than an artifact also makes Beacon Bolt and Enigma Drake go farther, and if your counterspell gets counterspelled, you can Expansion it to counter the counter and make more triggers happen...)
These are my thoughts, but well done nonetheless, I love this deck.

I have definetely considered it. I don't find that it has that big of an upside compared with Enigma Drake (wich isn't even in the deck), but through some playtest I found that you usually run out of threats (mainly Spellheart Chimera), and that Bloodwater Entity is really underperforming, I would like to try and substiute it with with Crackling Drake to test it.
Thank you for your suggestion.

Thought Vessel over vensers journal.
Sphinx-Bone Wand is a great win-con.
Bloodwater Entity because putting stuff on top is clutch
Sol Ring auto include
Bosium Strip weird tech, basically gives flashback to all spells in a turn
Telling Time instant speed, gets something in hand, and on top

I've had great success with Riddleform, personally, and I like it much better than Bloodwater Entity. The idea here is to burn the opponent out ASAP, so there's no room for 3-drops...except Adeliz. I've been running Adeliz as a 4-of myself for the same reason given above, but I'm not sure if it's right. I win a lot of games before I have a chance to play Adeliz, and other times I have 3 of them in hand. I once had to play three of them in a row (killing the previous one to the legend rule) just so I could play as if it had vigilance.
