Elixir of Immortality Discussion

So I'm almost finished building this deck. Although it's not complete I managed to win a few games with it. But I don't think it's perfect or viable for a competition against someone with a competitive deck.
At first, I tried to make a red deck wins, but then I had a good look at some Izzets and decide to rethink the deck. So, I came up with a Red magic to damage and blue to defend/control, mainly to protect my creatures from direct damage and removals.
So, 4 Goblin Electromancer will reduce the costs of spells, 4 Guttersnipe will add more damage to my sorceries an instants. The Thermo-Alchemist will defend and use their synergy with sorceries an instants to deal more damage. Thing in the Ice Flip will be a secret weapon if I run into a strong creature. Most of the time, I will be damaging my enemy directly and taking down his weak creatures. If I run out of ammo, the Elixir of Immortality is there to recharge my bullets.

Gristleback/Brindle Boar/Kitchen Finks/Feed the Clan/Momentous Fall for that bonus life through earlygame? Nylea's Disciple/Obstinate Baloth. Infect is tricky, but Dismember is usually practical, and Ratchet Bomb works well set to one or two, and murders tokens. Elixir of Immortality/Sun Droplet is a thing. Pulse of Murasa could help facing mixed discard/aggro. Asceticism makes people hate you.

you should add in Loreseeker's Stone so you can "reload" quickly after you've shot the crap out of the opponent. and also add in Staff of the Flame Magus and Staff of the Mind Magus so you can gain life whenever you do stuff. and add in one or two Elixir of Immortality so you can salvage what you just used and so you can avoid milling out.

This deck is awesome! Have you considered running an Eldrazi Titan, either Kozilek, Butcher of Truth or Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre instead of Elixir of Immortality, so that you can discard them with Sickening Dreams to auto reshuffle your grave?

First of all: wow! This looks super tight and badass to the max! Mizzet is such a cool dude, by far one of the coolest in the lore! I'm afraidbI won't be of much help reducing the deck - I can only add to the problem :p
I'm going to assume that you areaware of the infinite combo with Curiosity, and have valiantly abstained from it's miduse ;)
Now, things I think you need in her ;) :
Mizzix of the Izmagnus because fucking hell yes!
Mind Unbound because it turns your commander into an evergrowing threat.
Epic Experiment because it has the words experiment and epic in it.
I actually think you could drop Dragonshift since the deck ain'tthat creature heavy.
'S what I've got for now. Love the deck, man! You fa champ!

Let me first add to your problem by saying that this is the sort of deck that would want multiple copies of Sphinx's Tutelage.
Also Ancestral Recall is an absurdly powerful card. Even in vintage where people do degenerate things on a regular basis you are allowed only a single copy of it. A lot of people might not want to play aginst you if they know you are running 4 copies.
As for cuts:
Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur cool card but you have no ways in the deck to cheat him out early and it will be hard to reliably cast him.
Elixir of Immortality, with tutelage you should be draining their library faster than your own.
Cancel as someone who loves counterspells way too much i think you can cut the cansels. If you want to keep that many counters in the deck you could run one of the ones that's better than cancel like Dissolve/Dissipate/Scatter to the Winds
2x Font of Mythos: having it as a 4 of might be a bit excessive

I really like what you're doing here and am planning on building this list with a few nerf's/changes to a little less pure combo and a little more 'goodstuffy.'
With the number of spells you're casting every turn I think it's a mistake to not run Aetherflux Reservoir since the card can just win you games out of nowhere.
I'd also maybe consider adding back in Bloodbraid Elf, because relevant body and another source of cascade. If you have the money I'm sure an Ancestral Vision could also make an appearance as more card draw to fuel the deck is great.
One other potential change I think bears mentioning, is the addition of either Kozilek, Butcher of Truth , Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre or Elixir of Immortality Since the deck casts so many cards, free ways of shuffling them back in are worth looking at to basically reset the game and go from there.
Just my two cents, I love the deck and am going to have a bunch of fun tinkering with it.
