You need 24ish lands. Only having 18 is going to cripple your win-rate.

You are running some non-optimal cards. Sinister Sabotage is Cancel with an upside. Devious Cover-Up is pointless here. Sabotage is better or you can put in Chemister's Insight.

Chemister's Insight is good in the 4-spot, you can cast it twice and it will mill at least 4 at a time.

Some removal would be good. Lava Coil, Shock, Lightning Strike are all decent red removal.

Overall if you are trying to win via mill with the corrosion effect you need more card draw (as well as a sideboard.)

I also have to ask why do you only run Sinister Sabotage? Why not run more counter any spells in you deck such as Cancel or Wizard's Retort?

Divination is a good card and I will try to find a spot to put at least three of them in, however, for counters once Nezahal, Primal Tide is out. won't Cancel and Sinister Sabotage be enough? also, do you have any recommendations on what to replace Divination with?

Kjartan, Couldn't they also use Summary Dismissal? and they can't counter it with singular targeting like Cancel, or Spell Pierce because they would only be dealing with one of the 20+ damage?

Counterspell is a strictly better Cancel, and is worth around $1. Mana Drain is better than that, though is even more expensive.

I'd really suggest upgrading some of your current cards directly, such as a Time of Need for a card like Imperial Seal if you want to get into cEDH.

Really, I would drop all of the Eldrazi, wincons, random bad staples like Eternal Witness, as they just don't fit here over a card like Regrowth.

Welp, with all of that, and a lot more, I'll just write up the list and send it to you, k?

First of all, I don't think the new Niv Mizzet is the commander you should be using for this deck. Compared to other legendaries you already have in your deck, Karanos, Niv Firemind, Adeliz, and Melek, Niv Mizzet Parun seems more like a dud commander. Even the Locust God would probably be better for the deck.

As for the deck itself, I've noticed a few cards that seem redundant, mainly Index, Slip Through Space, Spellbook, and Hazoret's Monument.

As for replacements: Goblin Electromancer, Thousand-Year Storm, Thought Vessel, and Cyclonic Rift since it's in your maybeboard

Some other recommendations: Propaganda Swap Cancel for Counterspell If you do continue using Niv Mizzet, Brainstorm instead of Index

Iamme10000 on Rise of Nicol Bolas: Grixis SuperFIENDS

Full of fun effects and flavor, but you don't call things to my attention for flavor shenanigans. You call things to my attention for cold, ruthless efficiency.

First of all, you have cards that pull you in directions that the deck...just isn't going. Malfegor wants you to discard your hand, but you like having a full hand of tricks. Ashnod's Altar wants you to sacrifice creatures, but most of your creatures aren't expendable. God-Pharaoh's Gift wants you to reanimate things smaller than 4/4s, but most of the things you'd want to reanimate are bigger. Not sure you have enough cards (dragons and instants/sorceries) for Bladewing the Risen or Augur of Bolas. Fraying Omnipotence hurts you just as much or more as it does the other players, and Apex of Power is neat in theory, but with the number of big, expensive things you're running, you'll usually be casting only one card off of it. Gate to the Afterlife wants you to have things dying, but your things are too expensive to kill so haphazardly.

Then there's a few things that just suffer from the scale of EDH. Tormenting Voice can do work in mono-red, but you have blue. Play blue card draw. It's just...better. Even the cheap stuff. Hell, Chart a Course is a bad option and it's almost strictly better. Eternal of Harsh Truths doesn't do all that much here, just drawing you a few cards...whopee. It's EDH. Nobody cares. Likewise, Undermine has pretty much no upside over Cancel, and if you can, I'd try to find a better counterspell. For Elder Mastery, I'd be hesitant including it, because it bares your throat to removal or tempo plays for not...too much gain, because if you can leverage it to advantage, you're probably already winning. Sadly, except in niche cases, Wit's End isn't super effective in EDH because it won't hit for more than a few cards in almost all cases.

And never forget in EDH, your general matters. When you flip Bolas, you get a super powerful 'walker and an endless stream of cards. To fully take advantage of this, play removal, a few cheap counterspells, and most importantly, MORE RAMP. You are a very top-heavy deck. You gotta double down on that ramp; you'll always have something to do with your mana, especially with Bolas in the helm.

I have more optimizing comments, but those are the big glaring problems I see. Others are suboptimal things that you might want to keep for fun and trolling (I know how you play).

For card suggestions, peruse Lord Bolas. It is a rather expensive list, at times, but it can give you an idea of how to work with the Ravager as a commander.
