Curse of the Swine Discussion

I would suggest Curse of the Swine as better removal than pongify.

River's Rebuke has seen some play and its a little pricey CMC-wise for what it does, but is a fine budget card. Rapid Hybridization along with Pongify are format staples in blue. Chaos Warp , Beast Within and Curse of the Swine are all inexpensive options w/Curse having an exile effect tied to it.
For additional blink in these colors, Deadeye Navigator is king.
All of these options are under $5 currently.

Also, Notion Thief would be great!

Yes finally! Another person who has built Progenitus for a Greek Mythology theme! You're missing Underworld Cerberus , though. Fist of Suns is also decent in this deck. Perhaps you should also add Pyxis of Pandemonium for Pandora's pythos and either Triad of Fates or Sen Triplets to represent the Moirai. Plus Curse of the Swine needs to be in here - as representation of Circe turning Odysseus' men into swine.
If you want to check out mine, Greek Mythology.

Get rid of Manalith , Pristine Talisman , and Darksteel Ingot for the Talismans: Talisman of Hierarchy , Talisman of Dominance , and Talisman of Progress . Condemn should be replaced by something like Utter End , Anguished Unmaking , Murder , Go for the Throat , or some better removal spell that will actually remove something. You are running in here, so play to it's strengths. Instead of Curse of the Swine , I'd run something more like In Garruk's Wake or Plague Wind . Yeah, they are a high CMC, but they're budget, and one-sided. Day of Judgment would be a decent option, too.
You're running Wizard's Retort with only one Wizard in your deck. Cut it for 2 CMC counterspell or another removal piece.
Book of Rass is Book of Ass in this deck; the only colors I run Book of Rass in is Boros, because Boros sucks at card draw. With all the lifegain, Necropotence could be worth the risk to run. can be tough to pull off in a three-color deck, but it might be worth a shot in this deck with all the lifegain. Arguel's Blood Fast Flip and Erebos, God of the Dead are other options to consider.

"One-card wincons" to consider: Insurrection , Expropriate , Painful Quandary , Rise of the Dark Realms , Revel in Riches , Cut / Ribbons . Perhaps Clone Legion , Rite of Replication , Mogis, God of Slaughter , Hour of Promise , Blatant Thievery , Grave Betrayal , or Mind's Dilation .
One thing to think about is getting Nicol Bolas flipped and maybe joined by the other planeswalkers and casting Obliterate , Jokulhaups , Devastation , or Decree of Annihilation . Almost guaranteed ultimates. Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God would be the best--proxy for now and include in first build?

LiquidGaming Muzzio, Visionary Architect was actually an EDH general I was interested in playing for awhile (love the art on that card), but somehow forgot about. From your experience how similar does he play out to Arcum Dagsson ? I will definitely check out OathBreakerMTG.org pretty often to see what's new with OathBreaker and to see what's happening in the format.
Some other cards I thought might be worth considering for Jace's Paradigm Shift (some of these are quite expensive and probably aren't 100% needed, but these are all my thoughts):
2) Mission Briefing , personally I prefer this over Snapcaster Mage , it's recursion and has the ability to get you past 2 dead draws or give you the satisfaction of knowing you will get a good draw next (not sure what to cut though).
5) City of Traitors and Crystal Vein , they probably won't ever make it onto the list, but how have Lotus Petal and Grim Monolith been playing out for you? I would forget everything these cards say and read them as: "0... Only cast this spell if you haven't played a land this turn. You can't play a land this turn, add 2 to your mana pool." They seem like they might be worth considering once you read them from that point of view.
6) Magosi, the Waterveil , first I'm gonna say I have been in love with this card ever since I got into MTG so I might be giving it a little too much credit (but then again I was the player who loved The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale when I first started playing MTG, lol), I feel the majority of the time skipping a turn if you are playing control doesn't affect you too much, but being able to take an extra turn later on can be "pretty helpful."
11) Evolving Wilds , Terramorphic Expanse , Flood Plain , and Bad River , still on the fence about these, ocassional ETB tapped lands vs deck thinning (E Wilds and T Expanse are better by a slight bit, just to say), not sure on this one. What do you think?
12) Mana Severance , we all come to those points in a game where lands are dead, but not anymore.
14) Foresight and Manipulate Fate , being able to kill three dead draws and for 2 mana on a card that replaces itself seems great in a "53 card format" (us blue players always changing the stats to whatever we want whenever we want).
These were the main cards I thought could make it onto your list, but I'm still evaluating a couple others so I'll leave more comments with those if I feel they are actually worth considering.
