Has Docent of Perfection  Flip been suggested? I feel like it's really good; takes some set up, but it's good.

Sire Of Insanity is the main win condition of the deck, because no one will have a hand, and Kess, Dissident Mage kind of allows the graveyard to be our hand.

Docent of Perfection  Flip/Talrand, Sky Summoner can create tons of evasive tokens.

Guttersnipe will slowly wittle opponents down, and Exsanguinate late game can be cast two turns in a row with Kess, Dissident Mage to bring people down.

Charmbreaker Devils can also become huge out of nowhere, and a perfectly timed Disrupt Decorum can flip the game in my favor.

Sorry about treasure mage, I probably should've went to bed instead of been searching for magic cards at 3 in the morning, but oh well.

I'm guessing by "Sells" you mean spells, but I rarely play grixis so I can't recommend much. Vandalblast can be pretty good since it can wipe the opponents fields of artifacts, or it's a destroy artifact for one mana, so it's basically cyclonic rifts artifact hating brother. Otherwise I don't have much.

Docent of Perfection  Flip is pretty decent for what it is normally (a 5/4 flier for 5), but I understand that it's not ideal to have a card work with less than 10% of your deck, but it can be pretty powerful if you do get it transformed. As for Dualcaster Mage, you'd probably only copy an opponents spell, but some spells in your deck like fabricate can be pretty good to copy.

Sower of Temptation can work three ways in your deck. With sundial of the infinite, you can hold onto the second sower and the two creatures that go with it (Since you can just skip the end step instead). A second way you can use sower is with sac outlets, which your deck runs 6 or 7 of. You can sacrifice the second creature you gained control of, getting rid of their creature instead of keeping it. This isn't as ideal as keeping it under your control, but it's better then them getting it back. The third way is to use it during a turn where you want to deal major damage. For five mana, you can get two huge blockers out of the way, and keep one after the turn is done. This is a situational type card, so it may not work out for your deck, but I thought it was worth mentioning at least.

Also, have you thought of cards like Flameshadow Conjuring? It's basically Inalla, but an enchantment. Creating three copies of something for the turn is pretty nice, and with sundial of the infinite you can have them for a while. another nice card could be Warstorm Surge, since your copying so many creatures.

Treasure Mage doesn't search out a single thing in th deck...

Docent of Perfection  Flip and Dualcaster Mage are super strong, however, I only have 7 total Instants/Sorceries. Are there any good sells I could add?

Unfortunately, Sower of Temptation doesn't give the stolen creature haste, so unless I have a sac outlet the second stolen one won't do much.

Simic Manipulator is super interesting though, because with Inalla I can stack the trigger so I copy it before evolve resolves and get 2 counters from that 1 card. That seems good.

Thanks for the though and consideration Talonisnthavingit!

Dualcaster Mage could be nice for this deck. If you ahve four mana open, you can copy an instant or sorcery twice. Another okay card could be Manic Scribe, which would be better if your going for mill and had more evenly distributed card types, but it's worth a thought. If you want more control cards, theirs Simic Manipulator, which helps you gain control of creatures (Although mostly creatures with five or lower power unless you copy/gain control of a bigger creature). Unless you want a more subtle approach, in which case Sower of Temptation could work better since you'd get two creatures right away (Although they'll go away once the assigned sower leaves the field). I'd recommend Treasure Mage, but it'd only be able to search for two more cards than the Trophy Mage already in the deck, and is probably far more expensive. The only other card that I'd highly recommend is Docent of Perfection  Flip, which will buff your wizards quite a bite if you get three or more, plus it'll make a few small ones when you cast instants and such.

I'm really exited to build a wizard brew with her. Have to add stuff like Diviner's Wand, Inspired Sprite and Docent of Perfection  Flip for that wizard flavor. Nekusar, the Mindrazer was also my first general (though I don't have a deck with him anymore), so it would be nice to be able to play him for sentimental reasons, but not actually have the deck built around him. I think all the "dies" triggers will be fun too. Gives me an excuse to splurge on a Grave Pact. Not to mention this is the first real reason I have ever had to run my single copy of Sundial of the Infinite.

Definitely a Docent of Perfection  Flip, Riptide Laboratory, and perhaps some combo enablers like Intruder Alarm or Paradox Engine. Ajani was more of a flavor thing than a practicality. I would want a cat planeswalker in my variant of the deck but I know not all of his variations are necessarily synergistic.
