In the Eye of Chaos is very clever, but keep in mind that if someone removes Taigam before your next upkeep, you'll have to pay the X for each of your rebounded instants. Same concept for Chalice of the Void.
No Capture of Jingzhou? Why?
You're much more heavily into blue, and you already have Jace VP. Have you thought about adding Candelabra of Tawnos and High Tide? You'd need to shift the manabase a little but having two HT turns is pretty neat.
Time Spiral would be pretty great to rebound, as you'd get to throw out 6 mana worth of instants for free on your next upkeep.
Swap Pongify for Reality Shift. It gives you an extra wincon by putting it on Isochron Scepter w/ Paradox Engine in play. (Add in Copy Artifact or Sculpting Steel and you can do it with just Dramatic Scepter.)
Things you could cut:
Scroll Rack, It's good, but you have a ton of draw already, and it doesn't interact with much else here.
Silence, Maybe. Your stuff is uncounterable anyway.

I have really been picking the deck up over the last couple months, plus had some more money/time to test.
Stranglehold, Academy Rector, In the Eye of Chaos, Kismet, Land Tax, plus Enchanted Evening/Aura Thief. OK now that I look at it there are quite a few cards I want to test. I don't know what your meta is like, but with mine Delaying Shield works wonders, As well as Overburden. As well there are quite a few decks that Containment Priest stops from working, so I'm giving her a try.

You could start with cutting all the mediocre planeswalkers and enchantments that are not doing anything for creating a lock (because you say that is your plan here).
...There are so many cards that can effectifely create REAL locks, but I can't see how this current list could do that. I think you should cut a lot of irrelevant creatures here, because the most powerful lock pieces are enchantments and artifacts. Usually people can't run as many removals for these card types to prevent all of them from staying on the table, if your deck is full of that stuff.

Any reason to have thassa over Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir (for hard locks with Knowledge Pool, Invoke Prejudice or In the Eye of Chaos), Teferi, Temporal Archmage (for manipulation of stax effects) or even Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur for power other than budget or pure flavor?
I'd consider replacing Sands of Time unless there's something im missing about it, it seems pretty bad.

I would play stuff with global effects that don't depend on who controls them, rather than more of the cards, which are very bad if you don't give them away immediately...The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale, Pendrell Mists, Sphere of Resistance, Thorn of Amethyst, Trinisphere, In the Eye of Chaos, maybe Squeeze and Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Glowrider, Vryn Wingmare. You can slow down the game very much, no matter if you or your opponent controls these cards, while taking advantage of the life gain and card draw from your commander.

NarejED I do agree with the more staxish cards like Sphere of Resistance and Stony Silence prob def going to pick them up. I posted this deck as it is right now and not what the finish project is going to look like. If need be, I can change the deck to the finished product thought then it wouldn't be a deck I own.
But as far as you say it is missing a lot, I do not believe that is as true.
While I don't have the aforementioned cards, I do have cards like Mana Maze and In the Eye of Chaos. I have in the mail cards like Stranglehold which can hose a lot of decks. in the mid to late game, I have Dovescape and at that point there goes every combo deck.
WHile I do have the stax element, I also have the control element and card advantage in Consecrated Sphinx, Cyclonic Rift, Mana Drain, Cryptic Command the various tutors I have to assemble any piece I need in that moment. the various artifacts that help me control what I am going to draw. Sensei's Divining Top Scroll Rack
I am thinking even a Rest in Peace as a lot of decks have some sort o recursion out of the graveyard.
Also building a deck on paper is a lot different then play testing. I have tested some cards and traded them out for others because they were just dead draws and I would have liked something in that place.
I may be biased and I can see that, but I am trying to write an unbiased view.
I do think it is missing some cards but not many. Compared to a lot of zedruu decks though it is the most competitive I have seen and also has been play tested against some of the top tier generals.
lets continue the debate :D
