Chains of Mephistopheles is a not-so-budget card I run in my Nekusar deck.
I also would throw in more wheel effects like Wheel of Fortune, Wheel of Fate, Magus of the Wheel, Jace's Archivist, Dark Deal, Runehorn Hellkite, Reforge the Soul, Whirlpool Warrior, Chandra Ablaze, Wheel and Deal, Incendiary Command, etc.
Alongside Spiteful Visions, there's also Phyrexian Tyranny, Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind, Psychosis Crawler, Price of Knowledge, Ebony Owl Netsuke, Viseling (in multiplayer, Black Vise for two-way), Iron Maiden, and Fevered Visions.
Some more forced draw you can put in include, but is not limited to: Dictate of Kruphix, Seizan, Perverter of Truth, Forced Fruition (especially fun in Nekusar EDH), Kami of the Crescent Moon, Master of the Feast, Nin, the Pain Artist, Jace Beleren, Dack Fayden, Ob Nixilis Reignited, Well of Ideas, Font of Mythos, Howling Mine, Temple Bell, etc.
Well, I hope that this wall of text I just typed helped to some extent, and good luck with the deck.

Hi, took a look at the deck and I think I see a few swaps:
Some cards to consider adding:
+Bojuka Bog Likely someone in your meta has a graveyard based deck, and this is a very low cost way to greatly damage them. Especially since you will be fueling them with all your discard. For that matter, adding Nihil Spellbomb or Relic of Progenitus could be wise too.
And a few things that might not be pulling their weight here:
-Otherworld Atlas This seems just too slow. Charging it once makes a Temple Bell that etb tapped and costs 4. Charging twice is a really slow Font of Mythos. Charging three times is...three turns of nothing. If there were a heavy proliferation theme, then maybe.
-Laboratory Maniac Are you decking yourself before opponents are dying? If you've gone through 99 cards, or even 80, the opponents should be at -40 life or less. They'll also be damaging each other too. In the unlikely event someone maintains positive life, you'll probably deck them before yourself anyway if they played any of their own card draw. If you still worry about it, Time Reversal and Day's Undoing can replace two of your other wheel effects.
-Omniscience This just isn't the deck for this card. Yes all your Howling Mines can refill you each turn, but pretty much nothing in your deck is card advantage, so you can't drop this and storm through your library or anything like that. At the point you hit 10 mana you can pretty much cast 3 spells + play a land each turn anyway, so Omniscience only has value after you have ten mana, and if you draw more than 1+(mana available/averageCMC) cards per turn. At every other time (so way too often) it's dead.
-Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker Sure he's powerful in a generic way, but he doesn't synergize with the deck, and I think he's next on the chopping block because of his cost.
-Magus of the Jar Having summoning sickness and costing five makes this questionable to me.
-Leyline of Anticipation Another generically powerful card, but you know what else is generically powerful? Signets.

Cards that I need to buy & add:

So the card that has my EDH gears whirring is Bounty of the Luxa
I keep weighing it against other cards. Take Thran Dynamo: they both add three mana with a cmc of four. Pro: BotL adds colors. Huge con: you can't choose when to activate/add that mana. Also Thran dynamo can go in any deck since it's colorless; so what's to say you can't run both in a u/g/x deck?
Frontier Siege is another comparable card. Great budget option for decks like Omnath, Locus of Mana and Kruphix, God of Horizons since the mana is never wasted. Can't say I see it much on the field though
Let's look at the draw ability. Consistent draw like say Phyrexian Arena, Howling Mine, Honden of Seeing Winds, Well of Ideas, Staff of Nin etc all either have a higher cmc or a drawback (pun intended).
Obviously another downside is again you can't choose to draw over adding mana. Unless of course you have a consistent way to remove the counter
Honestly I'd take either ability in my Rashmi deck. I'm hoping it'll draw me into gas one turn, and the next help me drop bombs or save other mana sources open for countermagic
Anyone else have any thoughts on the card? Am I wasting energy on a bulk rare or will it be a rockstar?
No real spoilers on the weekend so we have to discuss what we got haha

Thanks for your suggestions, Luca.
I like the idea of the + combo very much, and I think it could work quite well in this deck, but I'm very much a sucker for flavour so I don't think it'll work for me, exactly.
As for Font of Mythos and Howling Mine, I've found that when using these cards (they were actually part of an earlier version of this deck before it went Esper) that your opponents draw too much and the advantage shifts in their favour. You also don't get the first draw off them (with your draw phase being the last in the so-called 'cylce' after you cast it), which is why I prefer the Temple Bell's versatility in being able to draw on the end-step or not at all.
