Update: I had mulled around Braid of Fire for a while since this deck is stuffed with mana sinks, and the reprint caused a dip in price for the original (grabbed a near mint original for $10 hehehe) so.... Grip of Chaos out (cause lets be honest that card, while fun, is just plain silly) and Braid of Fire in allowing increasingly outrageous uses of mana.

Well, names renamed, &... nothing. This isn't entirely Spellslinging. Nor is it straight out Disco Inferno of 1979, or self-protection from harm. It's all 3 at one time. Sorry, TypicalTimmy, but that's how I devised this deck to be. Maybe you can help from this aspect from here? 3 qualities that make this deck what I wanted it to be. If you wanted me to just do Spellslingers, I had a deck like that awhile back, but I'd rather a Variety of Deck Types, & not too much of the same typical kind of thing; this is why nobody wants to help with my Jhoira #1 CHAOS deck; nobody seems to know the following Goldilocks Effect of MTG I'll mention as a scale: Grip of Chaos : Too HOT! -> (Just Right.) <- Too Cold... Conundrum Sphinx
So, if the deck can't be all three types listed, & my Melek Superstorm deck is basically the same thing as a Spellslinger Deck, what would you replace/cut? Sorry again for derailing this to my Jhoira CHAOS deck...

I dig the deck. Be careful running Grip of Chaos though; it's way bad-mannered and super annoying

RECENT UPDATES: Pillar of Origins out Extraplanar Lens in (as well as snow lands), Reito Lantern sadly out cause i like this one but it was never as handy as I wanted it to be so Empowered Autogenerator is in adding to the ramp package. Ive also added Mirage Mirror and Grip of Chaos replacing Minion Reflector and somthing else i cant remember tho, Grip of Chaos i havnt played yet but its mainly there for fun till i find somthing better.

Ok so after proxying 4-5 decks i liked and was thinking about buying i landed the zirilan deck i built, so thank you for the inspiration, a couple cards ive been playing around with for fun i thought you would enjoy for their 'wot' flavor not nessecarily for competetivenes, Chaos Moon total Rand flavored card with the cycle of power and weekness, and messes with your opponents heads. Grip of Chaos i havnt actually got this out in a game but you gotta love the whole dragon reborn messing with the pattern flavor, and lastly Blade of Selves this is my pick for a best Callendor due to art and the whole fight a table single handed thing going on, but i side board it when playing 1v1. Good luck and thanks for the inspiration TAISHAR MALKIR! TAISHAR MANATHEREN! TAISHAR ZIRILAN!

The two big things I notice here are: you don't have a lot of expensive cards to cheat out with Omniscience (unless I'm missing a combo somewhere), and Grip of Chaos can get really annoying in a four player game with lots of stuff on the board. (I also don't know if Arcane Flight does enough to really be impactful.)
Based on the style of deck this seems to be, I'm a big fan of tossing cards from the advocate cycle in. In particular: Nullmage Advocate and Spurnmage Advocate give you a way to blow problems up while also returning cards (of your choice) to another player's hand. Pulsemage Advocate lets you bring a creature back. It's a great way to 'gift' someone cards that are useful to you (like a counterspell when someone else is about to wipe the board).
