Other spells that may interest you are Breaking / Entering I know you don't run much in the way of creatures, but this can hit any graveyard, and it can get you back your win con if it dies somehow. Dig Through Time because Dig Through Time, enough said. Fact or Fiction and of course its lesser Steam Augury.

Thanks for suggestions! Monastery Mentor is probably out of my budget right now, but I would slam dunk him to this deck if I had one.
I actually had Aetherflux Reservoir in this deck, but personally I grew tired of it because it was in nearly every deck in my playgroup back then. My friend once died to it four times in a row in a single day. ;)
Im not sure how I missed Rootborn Defenses (as I'm always mad at Artful Dodge not being an instant). And Myriad Landscape because I put it in nearly all my 2 color decks. But ramp actually feels okay in this deck, I have no problems casting my pricier spells, so I would probably put Wayfarer's Bauble only to replace other, worse ramp spell.
I'm a bit torn on cantrips. Sure, Brainstorm is hell of a card, and its a great spell either if your situation is bad or good. But I feel that some Divination-like cards like Compulsive Research may not be as good as a cantrip when on you are on topdeck, their ceiling is much, much higher in a deck when you can consistently cast it again for free. I actually changed Cultural Exchange for Fact or Fiction recently, but I was too lazy to update the deck here too. ;)
Maybe I should experiment and try how this deck would work if I replaced all those draw cards with cantrips.

Love me a good Taigam build, +1 from this fan. I am famaliar with Taigam, and have a few suggestions.
Monastery Mentor isn't a cheap card, but holy smokes, it's an incredible token maker in a Taigam deck. If there was ever an absurd target for Rite of Rep, its him. Good luck keeping track of all the triggers with 6 of them out haha ;)
You have a strong token theme here, has Rootborn Defenses been a consideration? At worst it allows Taigam to swing freely, and if you have a sweet token to make copies of...
Aetherflux Reservoir is a solid win-con for Taigam.
I don't really see any can-trip type cards, which is a mild surprise as Taigam pushes their value even higher. Preordain, Ponder, Brainstorm, even Serum Visions, all are solid cheap draw spells that make the deck more consistent and, of course, pushes the deck's average CMC down.
I'd lump Impulse in there too. I like Impulse quite a lot actually. It does a reasonable impression of Fact or Fiction at half the cost. Just good value. Also, F or F could probably be here. Fun interactive card.
Prairie Stream is a lovely dual land. Myriad Landscape is a staple land I use in most non-green decks. Ramp is hard for white-blue, getting that effect on a land is snazzy. Wayfarer's Bauble is close to an auto-include for the same reason. Very solid turn 1 play in non-green decks. Ramps on curve correctly as well for 4 CMC Commanders.
I threw a lot of cards at you, hopefully it wasn't too much, and hopefully some of them might be appealing. Keep on spell-slinging!

From that base, you could go more into turbo-stasis with Blind Obedience, Tangle Wire, Kismet, and Frozen AEther type cards, stax with Sphere of Resistance, Thorn of Amethyst, Grand Arbiter Augustin IV, and Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, or permission control with Counterspells, Swords to Plowshares, Terminus, Supreme Verdict, and other control cards.
In a playgroup filled with walker commanders, Pithing Needle and Sorcerous Spyglass are great removal, as is anything else that can do similar effects. Suppression Field forces the issue that Stasis asks:
Can you pay for that?
Other than that, more cards that fit here are:
Jace, Unraveler of Secrets, Tamiyo, the Moon Sage, Brago, King Eternal (flickers walkers to reset counters&activations for the turn), Azorius Signet, Cyclonic Rift, Fellwar Stone, Sol Ring, Chrome Mox, Brainstorm, Ponder, Preordain, Swan Song, Path to Exile, Damping Sphere, Rings of Brighthearth (doubles walker activations!), Inspiring Statuary, Sphinx's Revelation, Search for Azcanta Flip, Return to Dust, Fact or Fiction, Mystical Tutor, Arcane Denial, Teferi's Protection, Rewind, Reality Shift, Tragic Arrogance, Cleansing Nova, Treasure Cruise, Dig Through Time, Mind Stone, Sensei's Divining Top, etc.

hkhssweiss Those are some really great suggestions Thank you so much! It's ironic that you mention paradox engine as a combo piece because it would go perfectly in my Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca deck that I've already built, but it's still pretty expensive. I do like the combo though a lot so might consider picking it up still. Do cards like Fact or Fiction which put cards into your hand count as "drawing" and therefore triggering Niv-Mizzet, Parun? Thank you again for all of your help!

Snuggruble That's actually plenty to go on about! So essentially you want a control deck and using Niv Mizzie as CA. Yeah he is essentially known as a wheel commander due to his infamous combo involving Curiosity/Ophidian Eye. If you are going for a spell slinger/control route I would recommend a win-con with either Paradox Engine using in conjunction with Bonus Round and Aetherflux Reservoir or the more budget friendly alternative in Isochron Scepter/Dramatic Reversal. The former is a more fun way to play imo, while the latter is straight up an easier to assemble piece.
Now here might be some budget cards that are under $5 that can be quite helpful and efficient.
- Mystical Tutor
- Mystic Remora
- Blue Sun's Zenith
- Pull from Tomorrow
- Fact or Fiction
- Dig Through Time
These are just some suggestions that can be considered, let me know if ya have any questions!
