HowlingFoxGPH: I'm running those two for different reasons. Waves of Aggression allows me to turn my late-game lands into spells, and Seize the Day is very cheap and has flashback. Notably, both can still be cast after discarding them to a Wheel or Faithless Looting. And although Relentless Assault is an awesome card (particularly with Sword of Feast and Famine), I think I'll have to leave it out for now. 8 mana total to get the first activation is harsh.
Ocelot44: I'm afraid I don't quite understand. I have very, very few GY effects in this deck, so RIP seems a natural choice for the sideboard. The sideboard rules for commander are debated pretty frequently, but in my meta they let you have a 15-card sideboard so that's what I've done (it's particularly anti-control). Any suggestions for it? :)

HowlingFoxGPH: No worries! Any suggestion is a good suggestion. And speaking of suggestions, Insolent Neonate is interesting! I'd never considered him before, but he has (weak) evasion (so he can carry a sword), and sacs to trigger Avacyn, and gives me draw power...I am very much intrigued! I will try him out, thank you! :)
Ocelot44: Hey, hey. I like Faithless Looting a LOT in this deck. It's one of the best T1 plays for hand sculpting (digging for lands if I have too many spells or vice versa), and has flashback so I can use it again late-game. It's proven itself many times.
In addition...There aren't any other good Wheel effects beyond the ones I'm playing here, and I love the flavor of the card with relation to my commander :)

Wait a minute you still run Faithless Looting? Why not just another wheel effect?

Wow, this is a very interesting brew. I would definitely consider a 1x Guttural Response sideboard, because it seems a single counterspell in the right place could take this deck down hard (having saying this, I now see the Defense Grid, that is a better choice probably). Between Shattering Spree and Smash to Smithereens I would suggest Shattering Spree because a lot of the time with this deck that three damage will not be making a difference. Why isn't Kiln Fiend here? This is the deck it wants to be in! I would also suggest some Lightning Bolts within the 75. Can't say I particularly like the Faithless Looting as a 4x of, as this deck already has a lot of resiliency. Thunderblust also seems far too high of a CMC for a deck that wants to win this quickly. Also, where the devil are you getting mana for Supreme Exemplar? If you can only get it down with Incandescent, then it shouldn't be in the deck at all.

HowlingFoxGPH, Ocelot44: Actually, I could see it being added over Faithless Looting. I have a fondness for that card. But I find it a bit too situational, and it doesn't have Flashback like FL. Thanks for the comment anyway though! :)

Here's the first update comment since I increased the budget of this deck. Big changes have been made. I did a lot of restructuring including shifting around the landbase. I added Academy Ruins, Diabolic Intent, Sphinx of the Steel Wind, Steel Hellkite, Talisman of Dominance, Talisman of Indulgence, Forbidden Orchard, Faithless Looting and Anguished Unmaking.
I've been trying to find a way to fit in Academy Ruins while still staying on budget since it's such a good card with artifacts and has been mentioned many times in the comments. Replacing Demonic Tutor with Diabolic Intent was the key. This along with cutting five $2-$3 dual lands gave me the added cost I needed for Ruins. This also allowed me to still keep an unconditional tutor which I want to have at least one in the deck as well as Mana Confluence and City of Brass.
I cut Memnarch to account for the extra cost that Arcum Dagsson is making, thankfully he's starting to come down in price. I hate to lose Memnarch, but out of all the expensive cards in this deck he's the most expendable.
Azorius Signet and Dimir Signet were cut for Talismans, thanks Omut for the suggestion. I hate to cut Signets that make blue mana, but together these two are $6 and going up where as both Talismans price is much lower, less than $2.
The addition of Ruins means I wanted to include another card that can put artifacts into the graveyard, Faithless Looting. Magus of the Wheel is very good, but there's not room for him due to his current price. I also added a few more big budget artifact creatures to recur Sphinx of the Steel Wind and Steel Hellkite.
Because I'm cutting so many dual lands to fit Ruins in I wanted to also add another land that can make any color of mana to compensate for this. Forbidden Orchard was reprinted in Commander 2016 which means it's price will continue to drop.
