I would run Mana Leak instead of Counterspell, since the deck is multicolored.

If the commons/uncommons are packed with Lightning Bolts, Swords to Plowshares, Ponders, Inquisition of Kozilek, Chainer's Edict, Oubliette, Counterspell, and other fun stuff I'd still get few even if the mythics were all storm crows and grizzly bears.

Sure, it's fun to open a $10 pack with 14 chaff and one $20 card, but I'd much rather open a $10 pack with 15 $1 cards.

Plus, life becomes a lot easier if Chainer's Edict and Battle Screech finally get paper printings at common.

Fellow Mizzix of the Izmagnus player, Mizzix, the Storm. +1.

Notice you don't have a Turnabout, I would get that in there for Turnabout + Reiterate.

I've found Mizzix of the Izmagnus also loves Comet Storm, that way you can Firemind's Foresight into Reiterate + Comet Storm + Mystical Tutor/Merchant Scroll which pulls Turnabout and you're good to go! With all your Counterspell, just try and stop you!

I would increase your lands by 3, I've found with less than 36 in commander you're just asking for problems.

Mizzix's Mastery and Epic Experiment has been pretty good to me too, helps me get going if I stall. Your strategy is more Counterspell centric than mine though, so waiting for you likely isn't as bad as when I do.

53 Instant/Sorcery + Buyback + Flashback, Guttersnipe!!

Nice Deck.

Hey, fellow Mizzix of the Izmagnus player, Mizzix, the Storm. +1.

Do you find your Counterspell is being Counterspell in your pod? Last Word could be a Fuel for the Cause, or Pact of Negation or Mana Drain or Force of Will.

Firemind's Foresight would be good, pull Reiterate + Comet Storm + Mystical Tutor/Merchant Scroll which then pulls Turnabout and you have your win-con in 1 tutor.

Brainstorm is one of the best because it helps filter cards out of your hand back into the library, and then you can use a fetch land to shuffle away (or scry away), unneeded cards or extra lands.

Tezzeret's Gambit usually gives me 2 Experience counters most of the time.

Nivix Guildmage is awesome, may want to look at Izzet Guildmage he's also pretty good, and can combo Turnabout as well.

Forgot about Bonfire of the Damned, awesome card.

I've found a good Epic Experiment for 8 or so can usually get me going if I'm slowed or stalled.

You deck is definitely more damage offensive that mine that's for sure, Mizzix of the Izmagnus the Fireball.

Just some ideas. Cool Deck.

Iconic Angels: Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Serra Angel, Akroma, Angel of Wrath, Iona, Shield of Emeria

I can think of more iconic spells, like Lightning Bolt, Path to Exile/Swords to Plowshares, and Counterspell, than creatures

Instead of Cancel, why not add Counterspell? It is the exact same thing, but one mana cheaper.

This is not meant for any offense to you, but anyone with a semi decent commander deck would crush this, you could probably stand with a switching of commanders, look up a few and see which ones you like, then you could use Stormtide Leviathan for heavy hitting, Mulldrifter is just good fore card draw, Kira, Great Glass-Spinner, and Arcanis the Omnipotent is a must have as well. Counterspell is just one of the best cards ever printed for blue, Cyclonic Rift, Sol Ring should be in every single deck no matter what, no exceptions, Disallow is also just strictly good, Brainstorm and Ponder are also amazing cards that belong in every blue deck, Sapphire Medallion, Blue Sun's Zenith, Rhystic Study is amazing card draw, Thought Vessel is pretty good, Dissolve, Clever Impersonator, Jace's Sanctum, Dismiss, Metallurgic Summonings, Void Shatter, Treasure Cruise it may not seem it but its a very good card, even got restricted in Standard because of it, Reality Shift, Thing in the Ice  Flip, Venser, Shaper Savant, High Tide, Mana Leak

I would suggest something other than Kessig Prowler  Flip just because for the cost the flip isn't very useful, just because in my experience people don't block with more than one creature anyway. I don't like standard a lot due to the limitations of card choice (Counterspell would be amazing but again not standard) and I have not looked at many of the recent sets so I can't offer a replacement, but good deck anyway!
