Thank you for your suggestions! I think that Capsize, Snap or Reality Shift are better removal than Echoing Truth; and Cyclonic Rift is the best to clean the board and it's less situational than Echoing Truth. I already knew Bribery and it's a bit too expensive for me, but it's a really good card for sure, I'll keep it in mind! The other 3 cards are very interesting, especially Spelljack (I was looking for funny or less boring counters to add to this deck, you really hit the point on that). Thank you again!

Your deck has a lot of tools, but the thing is, I don't see a visible win condition. I can see the idea of chipping someone out kinda working in 1v1, but in multiplayer, I expect you to have a bad time. To make up for this, you have some options, and they all focus around the spells you cast.
Damage based cards like Guttersnipe, Faerie Tauntings and Aetherflux Reservoir, etc.Counter-based cards like planeswalkers, infect and Inexorable Tide, etc.Theft cards like Bribery, Insurrection, Slave of Bolas, Hostage Taker and even Rite of Replication.You could even mill with Memory Erosion, Leyline of the Void, and cards like Circu, Dimir Lobotomist Also, just dumb good cards like Draining Whelk, Venser, Shaper Savant and Kaervek the Merciless
Not to say what you're doing is bad, it's totally not. You just gotta squeeze that sweet value out of everything you do.
As for the cards you mentioned, I'd say Arcane Denial, Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker, neither but put Dark Petition in that slot, Duplicant because it's a body, Liliana of the Veil, Word of Seizing, and neither, kinda.
All that said, I don't really play control, I'm a Timmy at heart. I play against it enough to know that you want to use every part of that orange, not just the juice

Aaand another fun creature stealing card is Bribery. But that depends on your budget.

That mana base could use some real help. Here are some cheaper upgrades

Hi, thanks for the comment. I definitely do struggle with big mana decks. I was at one time sideboarding Bribery, but I took it out for other stuff. I may put it back in if I think it's necessary. I actually haven't thought of Fulminator Mage since putting the last hope in the main. It's very recent. As for Ancestral Vision, I know it's super awkward with my turn 1 discard. But it eliminates the risk factor in running Thragtusk, Damnation, and Yahenni's Expertise making me lose too much life, plus I can cast it off of Yahenni's Expertise. My opponent also can't usually stop Ancestral Vision from happening, and Dark Confidant can be and usually is immediately killed against decks with removal. A lot of the time, in a given matchup, either waiting until the second turn to use the discard or the sixth turn to draw the cards is going to be okay. I just have to read the game correctly. If I'm going first it shouldn't even really matter which comes first.
