MapPsycho Thanks for the comment and the upvote! While I do like your suggestions as cards, I don't think they'll be as efficient in this deck since I've found that I'm often using up a lot of my mana during my turns to cast creature spells. If I do end up running counterspells, they would have to be 2 CMC or "free" (i.e Pact of Negation, Force of Negation, and Force of Will) for me to best use my mana.
Too bad those counters I mentioned cost too much, though :(.
I'll probably still consider Foundry of the Consuls, though. It'd be a one time use, but I haven't really been using Castle Ardenvale or Kjeldoran Outpost to generate tokens much. I mostly put them in the deck as "just in case" cards.
FrogBoy95 And another thanks to you for the nice comment and upvote! I'm glad you guys have been liking what I've made; gives me a bit more confidence that the deck won't be a complete dud once I actually buy it in paper lol.
I recently edited the decklist to show some changes I made over the past week or so. Instead of Vedalken Orrery, I'm using Leyline of Anticipation since it basically has the same effect, and more importantly, is waaayyy cheaper than Vedalken Orrery.
On the subject of counterspells, I've also been thinking that better cards for me to use would probably be redirecting effects such as Narset's Reversal, Redirect, and Commandeer. While I don't think counterspells are a complete waste in EDH, I do think they're tougher to use efficiently since you're dealing with more than one person and ultimately end up losing some card advantage. Those redirect spells can help turn opponent's cards completely in your favor and will more or less replace themselves in doing so.
I haven't put those cards in the maindeck, however; currently those "flex slots" are being taken up by Phyrexian Metamorph and Stunt Double, which will ideally let me get more mileage out of my own deck by acting as extra copies of my EtB creatures.
Luminarch Ascension is a cool card, but my issue with it is that it will quickly put a target on your head, and my deck doesn't really have a lot of ways to completely dissuade people from attacking me. Dawn of Hope is much more lowkey and comes with an added bonus of potentially drawing cards, but that mana cost to make one token is a bit too high for my liking, and I don't really have a lot of ways to reliably gain life other than Cloudblazer, Elite Guardmage, and Charming Prince.

When I was playing it, I noticed it had a lot of X spells which I don't think interact with Mizzix well. I'd try ditching a couple of those and some higher cost creatures to speed up your early game. Then I also added a couple things that should help you keep a board state.

No worries lol. Well I definitely think a few more mana sources would do you some good. Most people run 37-39 lands and enough alternative mana sources after that to bring them to 50, meaning you would, in theory, want 11 additional mana sources in this list. There's plenty of wiggle room there though, like, Krosan Verge is ramp and a land in a way, so it checks more than one box. In EDH, you want each card to check as many boxes as possible if you want your deck to be super consistent. Beyond general deckbuilding recommendations though, I definitely recommend Leyline of Anticipation. Not only is this an enchantment, it gives all your stuff flash which is already good, it also gets much better with your commander, who cares about casting an enchantment every turn. In that same line is something like Cast Out. It's a bit slow, but you can cycle it if need be and it's instant speed removal that can hit anything and get you that extra draw with your commander on your opponent's turn. Banishing Light is just another Oblivion Ring, which is a super powerful effect in your deck. I don't really have too much time to give a full breakdown or anything, but my last recommendation would be to look at every card in your deck and ask "How does this card benefit from being in my specific deck with this specific commander and is there something that would have more synergy?"

Are all in now, and I took out the other cards you suggested as well.
The only card I think I'll have to keep is Deputy of Detention. The only reason being is that 12/15 of the flicker/blink cards I have can't target Oblivion Ring (most of them can only target creatures). That being said, I'm putting him on my Maybeboard until I can find room for him with the additions you suggested.
Let me know if there's anything else you think I should cut/add.
