Love to see another Niv-Mizzet deck!
But I have some questions about what you have here.
I don't think Counterflux is all that great, it's really color heavy for a glorified cancel 80% of the time. If storm or control are common in your meta than disregard and keep going.
How frequently do you actually need Reliquary Tower ? It seems really overkill in most cases especially when your wincon is Dramatic Scepter. Also tapping for colorless when the commander costs is painful.
How's Keranos, God of Storms doing? He seems painfully slow for the odd chance to bolt.
All in all, I do like the deck. Props for not defaulting to the Curiosity Combo Niv is infamous for! If you're interested, here's my own decklist, though it's still a work in progress, any suggestions are more than welcome: Mad Science with a bit of Control

Sensei's Divining Top seems like an auto-include in your top-deck hero style deck.
Learn from the Past is a lil sketchy...I thought you were a mill deck? ;) Grave hate is gud but you can just be running Relic of Progenitus effects. The synergy upsides are nais but not worth running a meh card.
Arcane Melee seems like an overcosted mana rock on average. You aren't storming off, on average.
Ashnod's Altar is an somewhat odd include in your super low creature count deck??? Putting Kefnoot into your library might be an ok if ballsy move sometimes but idk if it's worth such a dedicated sac outlet. You only have like 3 token generators...
Not to be a degenerate sicko mode boi but...no Laboratory Maniac or new jace maniac?

This is my spellbook. I tend to find ways and effects that bend the colour pie, as well as some spells I consider "hidden gems"!

Looks good for a budget list! Here are a few cards I'd recommend, slot them in as you will. Also, get rid of Chromatic Lantern, you have literally no use for it in a mono-blue deck.

@ DisturbedCanon: First off, thanks for the thoughts. The reason I picked Firemind over Parun is the mana cost. They both cost 6, but Parun requires very specific mana, which is hard to consistently pull off on a budget. Firemind will almost always be out once 6 mana is available, for Parun you need a perfect distribution. Plus Firemind can activate the first draw by itself (after casting Curiosity, for example), while Parun is dependant on you or someone else playing an instant or sorcery spell.
Not stopping the combo instant speed is a very good reason to run Parun over Firemind, though. Should I even build a budgetless variant, I'll surely be using Parun.
Regarding Spellbook: I've surely been in situations where I'd rather not discard, but that only happens if I've got my combo out. And once I do, all the cards I discard in my end step can be shuffled back into my library with Learn from the Past and drawn back into hand during the next player's upkeep if the Firemind combo remains in play.
I'll probably still give it a go and playtest is for a bit. Even without the combo I get to draw tons of cards, and not having to discard them does sound pretty good. Thanks!

really nice deck all I have to say is some other form of recursion would be best. I've found that Learn from the Past does great work although it doesn't mill them down anymore still worth testing.

Looks great to me, friend! You might add some modal spells like Primal Command, Mystic Confluence, Simic Charm (maybe), etc. That might increase your flexibility when it comes to beating different kinds of combo.
Also, I would guess that some dedicated graveyard hate might not be amiss. Scavenging Ooze, the new Ooze from C18, Ground Seal, or blue shuffle effects like Learn from the Past can help you beat cutthroat grave synergies. More hate includes Molder Slug, Rebuild, etc.
Things to cut, potentially your more durdly artifacts like Thaumatic Compass Flip, The Immortal Sun, Treasure Map Flip...but those are also fun to play, so I won't stop you. All my suggestions, though, are very situational and meta-dependent, because it looks like you've done a great job with the basics! And congrats on your strong game night performance with this deck! Cheers!
