Whenever you cast a noncreature spell, creatures you control get +1/+1 until end of turn. Untap those creatures.
Whenever you cast a noncreature spell, you may draw a card. If you do, discard a card.

Jeskai Ascendancy Discussion

Looking through that page you might consider the following
Chain Reaction , Cathartic Reunion , Narset's Reversal , Opt , Baral, Chief of Compliance , Soulfire Grand Master , Propaganda , God-Eternal Kefnet , Smothering Tithe , Primal Amulet Flip, Young Pyromancer , Jeskai Ascendancy , Swords to Plowshares , Kykar, Wind's Fury , Goblin Electromancer .
I have not played the deck so my suggestions might all be crap :) Good luck.

Light of Sanction
Jaya Ballard --> Arcbond
Alter Reality --> General's Regalia
Comet Storm --> Sunforger
Banefire --> Ashling the Pilgrim
Time Wipe --> Hammerfist Giant
Winds of Abandon --> Jeskai Ascendancy

Heartwarming Redemption not a true wheel but still good.

melie The main reason Jeskai Ascendancy isn't in the list is due to the fact that the 3 color requirement usually slows down a turn more than playing Jeskai Ascendancy helps. Having so few red-producing lands, for example, makes it difficult to reliably cast Jeskai Ascendancy and even when it is castable, it'd be less useful than most of the other spells that include a red pip. I do think it is a good card and can be used effectively, that's just the main reason it isn't included in this deck.
The biggest reason for the Copy Artifact play is for cards like Abrupt Decay . If I get unlucky with how a game has played out and don't have all the protection cards I need or if my opponents have the right cards, a single cast of Swords to Plowshares can get nullified. Granted, in most situations, I have infinite mana and could re-cast Elsha of the Infinite , but having that line as part of the loop makes it so it's quick to explain that it would take an insane amount of interaction to stop (for example, I could just untap my artifacts and cast another Swords to Plowshares in response to the Abrupt Decay ). And although that situation is very unlikely, Copy Artifact is an insanely good card to have in the deck anyway so having this line is just an extra sentence to say while winning, there's no added dead or sometimes-useless cards in the deck to accommodate this line.

The problem with planeswalkers such as the ones you mentioned is that I can only use their abilities once on the combo turn, and the closest one to being playable would be Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner because of its low CMC.
Growth Spiral is an interesting two-drop. The main reason that I didn't include it is that I don't think I would have 4 lands by turn 3 unless I use a tutor effect on the previous turn. My two-drops are already overloaded with Wishclaw Talisman , Shimmer of Possibility , and Sylvan Scrying , so I would probably chop a couple of those off to make room for Growth Spiral .
Shreds of Sanity had me for a second there, but then I saw that the only instants I play are Opt and Tale's End . Recurring Opt isn't much, and recurring Tale's End does absolutely nothing. Instead, I have been testing Mission Briefing which is like Shreds but surveils and costs one less mana.
Underworld Connections might not be a bad idea, but the problem is that my primary untap spells untap two lands, and I'm comboing with two Lotus Field s. I don't know if I would enchant a Lotus Field just to draw a card and maybe have that small chance of drawing an untap spell, or enchant a random extra land to untap with Finale when that happens, and in that case I would only draw 1 extra card for 1 life and technically 1 mana which is what Finale does anyway. Although not a bad idea, but I don't really think it's necessary for what the combo needs.
Zacama, Primal Calamity is cute, but the problem is that Lotus Field taps for one color, and Zacama requires three. Although not impossible, I would rather produce blue mana first to use untap spells then I would be left with tapping two Fields for two different It would be nice to test out some extra turn spells in the deck. Although I can't use Karn's Temporal Sundering because it's a "legendary sorcery" and I have no legendary things in the deck, I would probably resort to Nexus of Fate due to its repeatable use. Thanks for the input!

I think it's a good build, but I'd want a bit more artifact/enchantment removal in a control/midrange deck in Pioneer with so many decks that rely on them running around. Jeskai Ascendancy will always be a threat, so will Emry, Lurker of the Loch decks, and Wilderness Reclamation taking turns. The only card I can think of right now is Anguished Unmaking (possibly as a substitute for Hero's Downfall ), but there must be other white cards out there.

Jeskai Ascendancy is a good way to manipulate the top. I just wish the first clause can be a bit more relevant (No! I am not going to voltron with my commander)
Cyclonic Rift is not included for the reason I explained above. People keep suggest it but unless a very good argument can support it I don't feel it's a must-have in this deck, at least for my meta.

Deputy of Detention hits Saheeli Rai and Jeskai Ascendancy . Also depending on how the format shapes up, Phyrexian Revoker ? Scavenging Ooze is DEFINITELY stronk with izzet phoenix and jace about, flexin'. Also I think the midrange agro might be the strongest archetype lowkey? So gaining life is A+ too, which might give the nod to Knight of Autumn . Tireless Tracker also seems like a payoff that might just carry you the whole way across the finish line.
