I see a lot of similarities between our decks. I’ll have to use Shambling Suit I see to have overlooked it. I run more counterspells, but that’s just me.
I don’t have Jace so that probably why I don run him. Instead my planeswalker of choice (besides Ugin, the Ineffable ) is Karn, the Great Creator in case an artifact I like gets exiled, I can still pull it out with minus 2 ability.
Stonecoil Serpent , Steel Overseer , Corridor Monitor , Manifold Key are all stars. Especiall Stonecoil. I like to use Witch's Oven not just because it’s a cheap 1 drop, its also a sac outlet. For example I’ll cast stonecoil early game to get my artifact count up, then I’ll sack him to recast him with more counters later on. I also use the oven to sac Corridor Monitor if I need to reuse that ETB effect for some reason.
Scalding Cauldron is an interesting card. In the Eldrain prerelease I pulled emry and this cauldron I was getting a lot of traction using it to remove just about all my opponents creatures. That’s when I realized Emry has a lot of potential as a commander.
I like the deck overall!

Imp's Mischief - Counters counterspells, redirects removal and extra turns. People rarely see it coming. Using hatred sucks because it is additional cost to cast is life, so you can have imp's mischief as a backup to removal. Same with insidious dreams.... this deck seems very very weak to blue. Have you considered perhaps the double edged sword Defense Grid ? Or hell, since you don't care about losing life, become the blue player with Withering Boon ! Show them what a Goku shooting a kamehaha can do!
Contamination - Synergy with bitterblossom, counterspell bait, brtual.
Rings of Brighthearth - Synergy with your commander, top, aetherflux....karn, ayara, razaketh, fetches,
No Reliquary Tower for necro?
Lotus Petal - Seems better in decks like locust g-d with built in card advantage to mitigate the card loss. You don't have much card draw in the deck so a few timely pieces of removal and you're gone.

I can finally say that Ugin, the Ineffable is not bad and after painstakingly beating my head against the wall to build a customized deck I am pretty confident that I am on to something here. Eledain thanks for your feedback on Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma as well as Awakening Zone . Thursday night I ran those and you were right and having them in the deck slowed it down way too much and was pointless. thanks for the heads-up!
As a real-time player I still love the feel of the actual cards in my hands and it is very hard for me to transition over to the "virtual" MTG world so I have yet to make that leap. I realize this site is great in introducing builds at the click of the button or copy & paste. I use it for the play test feature and it helps a great deal.
Tonight I came in 4th place in tournament and that was huge with what I had come up against. The first round was with a young lady running a blue Merfolk deck. I have played against her several times before messing around with different builds and she is pretty tough. the first bout she nailed me like usual and I added a sideboard just for her and shut her down. She likes to get Sea's Claim out immediately so I brought Choke to this particular event just for her. It was hilarious and the expression on her face was every bit worth the play. "Sorry dear you just got choked.. Next!" That session I was 2-0
The next match I was up against Tron and this guy was running Once Upon a Time . The only reason he got me in two rounds was his hands were one step ahead of mine and bout two I was forced to mulligan down to four cards. he took the game with a 2-0.
The third and final match was another Tron with Karn, the Great Creator and it was definitely close all three rounds. He got Karn Liberated out turn three on the first bout and I popped creator. I couldn't come back so I gave him that win. In the second game we were neck-in-neck but I side-boarded in and dropped Pithing Needle shutting down Creator came out with two Wurmcoil Engine and Ugin, the Spirit Dragon for the win. Again the final match we were neck-in-neck and it was a race to the finish and laughing like champs the both of us all the way through. It was a really close game but I again came through with another choice sideboard Thought-Knot Seer and ended the match with Spirit Dragon again. I did get to pull Ineffable a few times through out the game and it proved to bare it's weight in gold and I am pretty happy with this custom build and encourage others to try it out if you ever get the chance. I might eventually add two more Karn Liberated later on to strengthen the brutality of it but Tron is so much fun to play and this build is sealed~
Thanks for stopping by my page here, have fun and see you all on the battlefield!

Im going to go ahead and not assume that you have anything quite yet and go through the common inf mana lines as well as infinite The Chain Veil . Sorry if these are redundant, but I feel like I shouldn't assume.
With inf mana, anything that has forced draw x or mill x wins the game.
With inf mana Deadeye Navigator combos, you can add in Deceiver Exarch to any of them and tap down your opponents at upkeep or better yet Riftwing Cloudskate / Venser, Shaper Savant to bounce all of their permanents.
Hopefully at least something here helps!

Yeah, I have thought about Karn, the Great Creator , I have used Titania's Song before for a similar effect, except I will have to think that one over because tutoring an equipment from outside could be a good move.
