What do you think of something like Khalni Gem so you can get more landfall triggers?

The main strategy I'd go with is generating large amounts of artifact tokens/creatures to win with either riches or crazy recursion loops with giant beaters, sacking a few myr or thopters with something like Champion of Stray Souls to bring back all your giant beasties. This is just a bunch of possible options that would help with that strategy.
Suggested Lands, don't need that many basics since you won't be fetching that many in U/B

I love Kynaios and Tiro decks, their always a lot of fun, +1 all day. Also, I recommend this to pretty much everyone who plays these guys: Khalni Gem. I'd also recommend this guy if you want a little more artifact/enchantment removal: Trygon Predator.

Jace's Archivist - windfall

For a deck based around noncreature spells, this sure has a lot of creatures in it. Now, I haven't played a prowess deck before, but I feel like you don't need to run every single prowess creature in here, especially cards like Bloodfire Expert, Dragon Bell Monk, Ingenious Skaab, Jeskai Sage, Jeskai Student, Mage-Ring Bully, Sanguinary Mage, Spellweaver Eternal, Umara Entangler, none of which have any significant abilities. To replace these, I'd run some mana ramp, which you have a criminally low amount of (one, in Chandra, Torch of Defiance). You could run Sol Ring, an EDH staple that every deck needs, also Azorius Signet, Izzet Signet, and Boros Signet, and if you want to get rid of your ramp later in the game, Mind Stone, Commander's Sphere, Hedron Archive, and Dreamstone Hedron will suit your needs. Some other ramp cards that can work really well in your deck are Chromatic Lantern, Coalition Relic, Coldsteel Heart, Corrupted Grafstone, Darksteel Ingot, Dowsing Dagger Flip, Fellwar Stone, Gilded Lotus, Khalni Gem, Primal Amulet Flip, and Pyromancer's Goggles. Obviously, you souldn't run all of these, but you should definitely consider them. The average commander deck should have around 10 ramp cards, though yours may want a few less, considering it's an aggro-ish deck. Also, Ponder's really good.

I know cavern harpy can bounce mairsil "as many times as you want" but why not just play Shrieking Drake so you need less mana to bounce mairsil the same turn you play them the first time?
Definitely needs more tutors, if you're going to run demonic and buried alive you should definitely play Entomb, Vampiric Tutor, and maybe a multi-tutor like Demonic Collusion which synergizes somewhat with caging graveyard targets?
If you are playing Heartless Hidetsugu as a line of play you need to have a damage doubler that is opponent-specific which I can't find, maybe I'm blind?I wouldn't bother with effects like Magus of the Jar that require you both to have haste on field and sacrifice the creature in order to get immediate value. You aren't profitting from discard or draw directly and it feels like you can play something with a more consistent effect that represents a better target for Mairsil.
You have access to blue so swap Heartstone for Training GroundsAlso definitely think you need to go easier on the colourless ramp, your spells just don't cost that much and you could use more colour fixing since you're limited in terms of rampability. I find Khalni Gem is great for non-green colour combinations since you get your mana back right away AND it keeps your land-drops consistent. AS a mairsil target it can also give you blue mana for many of your activated abilities like knacksaw clique, which you must be aware goes infinite since I see you have quicksilver elementalMaybe you could write a primer explaining the various combos and synergies you're going for? I think some of them are weak lines of play you should cut for interactivity with your opponents instead.
Would also recommend trying to have at least one or two value backup plans that don't need your commander to resolve in order to win, especially since Mairsil requires quite a bit of setup to be a game-ender.
