The deck seems nice but its lacing in win cons you wont kill people with Grapeshot and maybe with Guttersnipe I think you should put in Talrand, Sky Summoner, Young Pyromancer, Docent of Perfection Flip, Murmuring Mystic, Chasm Skulker, Aetherflux Reservoir or Aria of Flame as you see fit. also you can replace Merfolk Looter with Jace, Vryn's Prodigy Flip and Goblin Electromancer with Baral, Chief of Compliance. and you really want to go crazy put in Thousand-Year Storm

We should talk more in-depth about your list later, Scarecrow. Here are some initial thoughts I have:
Cards that probably should be in here but aren't
Cards that don't seem super fantastic in here
- Baleful Strix
- Brineborn Cutthroat
- Faerie Vandal
- Ingenious Infiltrator
- Countersquall (this one might be ok but I'm not a big fan, I cut Negate from UR because it didn't do enough and I feel similarly about Countersquall in your list)
- Chart a Course
I think the biggest thing this list would benefit from is a thorough reevaluation of your gameplan. After you've got a solid idea of how you want your games to play out, ask yourself what each color contributes to that gameplan and why you're playing it over another color/more of a color you're already in. That will allow you to adjust your inclusions accordingly and have a better focus within your list.
More than happy to clarify stuff/go over this with you later if you want :D.

Doomsday! We're bringin' it back!
After some interesting conversation on the Zur discord, I'd like to try out Doomsday as a backup win condition along with the existing slim Consultation package. Making some painful cuts to facilitate that.
Hopefully I get to test these lines out in the next few games.

The deck is in the 'help' section so I'll leave some ideas... I hope I'm not being presumptuous:
You may want to consider running all the relevant Zendikar fetches; I see you're missing Marsh Flats, for example. They're expensive, but you're running Underground Sea so I'm assuming budget isn't really a problem. The reason I say you should run them is that a. they'll make your Jace, the Mind Sculptor's Brainstorm ability that much better, and b. they'll let you run ACTUAL Brainstorm effectively. I've found cantrips to be really effective in EDH, and I think in addition to Brainstorm you should run Ponder and Preordain in pretty much any blue deck.
I think Murderous Rider is likely better than Hero's Downfall. It does tuck itself when it dies, which means reanimating it could be a little tricky, but having the extra value of being able to cast it as a creature seems a strict upgrade from just an instant.
If you do end up running Jace's Archivist from the 'Maybeboard,' consider running Geth's Grimoire, Waste Not and/or Bone Miser. I've always been a fan of the discard subtheme in EDH, and it goes pretty well with reanimation strategies. If you do consider running those cards, it's worth noting Windfall, Liliana of the Veil, Raven's Crime and Words of Waste are also really synergistic with them.
Lastly, I think Graveborn Muse has a spot in this deck. I know you said you aren't looking for zombie tribal, but she's at worst a Phyrexian Arena and you're tangentially making more zombies anyway. I feel like most of the time she'll draw you somewhere between 2 and 4 cards, which seems like it makes her worth it.
Right. That's all I got. Good luck!

FaiberJC that's a really weird rule but there are quite a lot of useful humans/wizards I believe. Bob and Notion thief are human, Thassa's Oracle is a wizard. That means you need 7 more...
- Divining Witch is another Demonic Consultation and is human.
- Jace, Vryn's Prodigy Flip is a human wizard.
- Manic Scribe just to add more topdeck wrecking (player's can't eot tutor because of him) maybe.
- Baral, Chief of Compliance but be aware that he doesn't reduce that many costs in this deck (under 20).
- Snapcaster Mage is a human wizard.
- Tribute Mage/Trinket Mage/Spellseeker are useful tutors and humans.
- Cursecatcher is cheap disruption and a wizard.
- Emry, Lurker of the Loch is nice and cheap value and a wizard.
- Disciple of Deceit might be a decent tutor and is human.
Try to cut cards that are similar in function. You will also not want cursed totem with more creatures that tap for some ability.

Profet93 I am newly active again. I have been trying to brush off my MtG rust and get back into the game. I appreciate suggestions a lot and will be editing the deck a little more pretty soon. Sometimes I would play Possessed Portal against decks like Jace, Vryn's Prodigy Flip to prevent milling or to prevent frantic searches. Beacon of Unrest is definitely a good replacement for Arcbound Reclaimer. I will play test it for a bit and see how it goes over. Thank you for your help I appreciate it, but it might be a little while before I revisit this deck with the seriousness I did before.

Seems like Jace, Vryn's Prodigy Flip could help fuel this bad boy, if he's in your budget. I've always liked Scarab God, but it's always been hit or miss for me, really good, or nacho libre, nothing at all.
