3 cards to consider: Hateflayer combo with Tree of Perdition for an insta-kill on a player. Illusionist's Bracers and Rings of Brighthearth let you double down on your activated abiities without being too reliant on Quicksilver Elemental

You lack removal for high priority threats to the deck. While you definitely have a great nest-egg thing going with Mairsil, i'd look into cutting some of the lower-payoff creatures and artifacts from the list in favor of more removal/counter magics. Reality Shift, Chaos Warp, Toxic Deluge, Cryptic Command, and cards of that sort would likely be productive in contending with high tier decks, as you will need to have the ability to stop them from going off on you as early as turn 4.
I'd definitely look at cutting Azami, Lady of Scrolls, Memnarch, Argent Sphinx, and Hateflayer (not sure about hate flayer... a lot of lists seem to like him) from the list.
Very cool deck idea though

I already tested one i made yesterday, and you're right! he's an amazing draw engine, i was amused when in just one turn i drew about 11 cards, definetly is worth trying. Also i must admit he's way far better than i thought (which is a plesant surprise, XD), he have his work done all by himself. Whatever, this are some modifications i made, if you want to take in count:
Olivia, Mobilized for War, Neheb, the Eternal, Rakdos's Return, Hateflayer, Hazoret the Fervent (this one seems counterintuitive, but works well), Razaketh, the Foulblooded, God-Pharaoh's Gift, Demonic Collusion, Bonfire of the Damned, to mention some. And also some cycling cards (lands most of them)
I wish you good luck!

I would take out 2 of Redirect, Odds, Redirect, Deflecting Palm, Boros Charm.I'm not sure the copying angle is really the best. If this were my deck, I would honestly take all those out. Replace them with things like Serum Visions, Lightning Bolt, Mana Leak, Remand. You could also use Walking Ballista as your win condition. It's a good card by itself and can win the game immediately with infinite mana.
Good luck! :)
Oh and Grand Architect makes infinite mana with pili-pala. You could consider him as well.

Like the deck! I saw the spoiler on this, and I was super pumped about an EDH deck, as well. Something I noticed about The Scorpion God is that even if it's a centerpiece to the deck, you probably don't need the hexproof or shroud from the shoes. You can have it go to your graveyard, instead of command zone, and you can cast it from your hand for 5. If your library is exiled, you have to pay commander tax, but that's the only scenario, so it's really not that bad if it dies. You've got a ton of card draw, and you'll probably kill Anger with your own cards the turn or two after it comes down, so I'd replace both Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots with Anger. I haven't put together a decklist, but some of my considerations I didn't see here are Everlasting Torment, Cauldron of Souls, Grief Tyrant, Harbinger of Night, Hateflayer, Puppeteer Clique, Sickle Ripper, Soul Snuffers, Soul-Scar Mage, Thunderblust, Tourach's Chant, Throne of Geth, Volt Charge, Archfiend of Ifnir, Fang Skulkin, Fevered Convulsions, Rattleblaze Scarecrow, and Serrated Biskelion.

Spearbreaker Behemoth is a maybe at this time as im not sure what to take out for it.
Land wise, i do need to look at my lands and fix them so i thank you for the suggestions.
Blightsteel Colossus is a strong card, in our play group we use the following rule for infect: Infect damage is 20 for a kill on a player.
Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger is a card i offerd to take out but it was classed as ok.
Thank you for you help on this.

Since pesmerga87 mentioned Hateflayer I would like to mention Cryptolith Rite. Not only does this give all your tims another ability and ramp you HARD in a creature based deck, it works super well with hateflayer and can be a wincon all on it's own.
