Never seen pauper EDH before. This is really cool!

Maybe include some ritual-ish effects like Pyretic Ritual, Infernal Plunge, Seething Song, Desperate Ritual, Simian Spirit Guide, and Lotus Petal to really bring out those prowess triggers?

This wants rituals Dark Ritual, Desperate Ritual, and Pyretic Ritual it also could benefit from Goblin Electromancer

Nevermind, I just saw Desperate Ritual

Time Walk is a sorcery, you can't put it on the scepter.

It's a pretty simple use, but Dark Ritual and Desperate Ritual turn it into a decent mana rock. There's also the infinite combo with Dramatic Reversal and at least 3 mana in rocks.

P.S. I don't see what the new Jace has to do with this

Street Wraith isn't good enough to make up for the 5 life you lose flipping it to ad nauseam. Neither is Paradox Engine in my mind. Treasure Cruise shouldn't even be considered. Other cards that don't make sense for the speed the deck is trying to run at are Rhystic Study, Overburden and Past in Flames. I'm not sure why you went with Dismember when there are plenty of other 1 drop creature removal spells available, Counterflux is also super questionable. You don't really have enough red in your deck to warrant running Pyretic Ritual and Desperate Ritual either you should probably replace them with some mana rocks, Izzet Signet, Dimir Signet, Talisman of Dominance and Talisman of Indulgence should almost certainly be added. A Notion Thief would also probably be solid.

I'd add Seething Song, and Desperate Ritual.

Lotus Petal is also pretty helpful I find either getting an early mizzix, or extra mana after an Enter the Infinite. And Sensei's Divining Top is good at smoothing out your draws in the first couple of turns.

For lands I'd say start with getting the Khans fetchlands and a Steam Vents. Reflecting Pool is a really good land to have as well.

Finally I wanna ask you how Paradox Engine works for you, I haven't added it into my list yet as five mana seem like quite a bit for an untap ability.

I think it you need some more good early interactions until you have the mana to pull of double half deck.

I would cut sea scryer and phantasms as your early turns want to have more control and not really beating and scryer looks nice but feels like a magnet for removal. This would open up 6 spots to add some R with 2 Geistblast for the combo kill and 4 Glacial Ray for board control.

Adding red would also allow for some better ramp than signet or chalice with Desperate Ritual if you add even more arcane cards like 3 Dampen Thought instead of 1 traumatize and the psychic surgery

But i know this are a lot of changes and i am not sure if it would change your deck to a whole new deck :-P sry for that
