I have a similar deck I built a while back. I've thought about going back to it and tweaking it a little. https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/jace-mind-drinker/ Anyway, here are some cool cards.

For milling. I would throw in Glimpse the Unthinkable and Traumatize . Hinder or Reito Lantern followed by Tunnel Vision is nasty too. Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker and Fleet Swallower

For stelaing Diluvian Primordial and Dimir Doppelganger

There's Fraying Sanity . Overall Cry of the Carnarium and Ritual of Soot is super weak in commander. Hard board wipes like Cyclonic Rift Plague Wind Damnation are much better. Phenax, God of Deception is a great mill machine with either Eater of the Dead and consuming aberation. Diluvian Primordial is a great card along with Rhystic Study (which should be in every blue deck). There is Reality Shift which can exile commanders unlike Cast Down . Gilded Lotus for extra ramp. Tomebound Lich isn't that great in commander it's just got a really small body. Just a spew list of cards I think would be good for the deck: Mutilate Defile Clever Impersonator Evil Twin Wayfarer's Bauble Burnished Hart Lim-Dul's Vault (only if you include a combo) Lilliana of the Dark Realms + Torment of Hailfire I know that this is a very long list just trying to guide you toward what commander looks like!

Flicker strategies are always fun! I have some thoughts for it.

May I recommend Cast Out as instant speed interaction? The cycling of it is an additional reach of the card. Mana Geode instead of one of the mana rocks is an added scry upon flickering.

Reality shift is a horrendously efficient removal spell that I would recommend and Diluvian Primordial has much reach in the late game, potentially getting enough value to set everyone else off course.

Eerie Interlude can save a board state from a wrath and Dusk / Dawn avoids hitting most of your creatures whilst hindering opposing boards.

At last, Nevermore could shut down commanders with the option of changing the named card.

May your blinks be prosperous!

I really like this deck start. I would add more Wood Elves type cards and have less instants/sorceries. Ex: Springbloom Druid , Farhaven Elf , Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip.

You're talismans are good ramp but are strictly worse than basic signets. I would replace them. In a deck with hefty lifegain they might be better - but i can forsee taking a ton of damage from then.

Terastodon and Venser, Shaper Savant should be mainboarded.

The The Immortal Sun , Guardian Project , Mystic Confluence , Ulvenwald Hydra , Seedborn Muse , Rune-Scarred Demon Muldrotha, the Gravetide , Hornet Queen , Courser of Kruphix , Oracle of Mul Daya ...and anything with Landfall are my least favorite cards for the deck. I think Landfall is an entirely different style this commander can be played with - as in I think it would need support from the entire deck and need to abuse Landfall with more cards. Right now I think the deck has a bigger Control theme. Cards like Roil Elemental or Sire of Stagnation need to be protected - and need an entire support system of counters and Explore and Harrow and Scapeshift and Splendid Reclamation and Crucible of Worlds etc etc.

I think you would benefit more from cards like Equilibrium Treachery Strionic Resonator Lightning Greaves Diluvian Primordial Duplicant Prime Speaker Zegana

Also you can probably go down to 32 lands.

I haven't forgotten about this deck, just haven't been actively acquiring new cards for a while.

Diluvian Primordial is fun but the mana cost just doesn't quite keep up with the more competitive decks, even if it gives me a 5/5 flier and their best spell. Finally got my hands on that Disallow, I'll swap out Voidslime for now but if I see something else not working out, Voidslime might come back in, though this deck is already swimming in stifle/bind effects so the odds of that are slim.

Out: Voidslime , Diluvian Primordial .

In: Disallow , Archmage's Charm
